General News
Former Members of Dag Nasty form new group Field Day

Peter Cortner and Doug Carrion performed on Dag Nasty’s iconic recordings Wig Out at Denko’s and Field Day and played some 300 shows with the band in the late 80’s.  The guys wanted fans to be able to hear these classic songs live as much as possible, but due to scheduling and geographic conflicts, this was becoming much harder than everyone would have liked.  After a conversation with Brian Baker, it was decided that Doug and Peter would forge ahead under the name Field Day along with Mark Phillips from Down By Law.

The group has announced that they plan play a select number of East Coast and West Coast shows in late August 2019, and they will also be releasing new music in 2020.  We will be sure to keep you all updated once those dates have been announced, as well as any new music that comes from the group.

Russian Tim and Pavel Bures (punk) streaming new EP “Greatest SuperHITs”

Vancouver punks Russian Tim and Pavel Bures are streaming their latest EP Greatest SuperHITs. Featuring six all new tracks, top to bottom this is a solid new release. There’s a little in there for everyone as well, the album starts off with some hard and fast punk songs and takes a bit of a left on the track “Marshmellow”. Probably my favorite track on the new EP, the song is reminiscent of Gogol Bordello, all kinds of mayhem and a catchy tune.

Check out the new album below.

This is the first new music from Russian Tim and Pavel Bures since they appeared on the Punkouver Vol. 2 compilation album last year. As mentioned above if you’re into Gogol Bordello, you will no doubt get a kick out of these guys.
