DS Exlusive: Pop-punk vets Goin’ Places premiere song off upcoming covers album

Have you heard the good news? Staten Island pop-punk veterans Goin’ Places have a new covers album coming out, and your friends at Dying Scene have an exclusive stream of one of the tracks! Well, it’s not actually new… it’s actually pretty old. But it’s new to you! We’ll let the band explain the situation […]

Have you heard the good news? Staten Island pop-punk veterans Goin’ Places have a new covers album coming out, and your friends at Dying Scene have an exclusive stream of one of the tracks! Well, it’s not actually new… it’s actually pretty old. But it’s new to you!

We’ll let the band explain the situation (they’re better with words than we are):

“Back in early 2002 we recorded our first album “Girl Songwriting 101”. After we left the studio we had several months of downtime while it was getting mixed, mastered and shopped to labels. So we did what any other band would do and said “let’s record another album”. We started rehearsing and soon after recorded an album called Fingerboard Road”. It featured 18 songs by 4 guys from Liverpool (yes, THOSE 4 guys). We didn’t want two new albums out at the same time, so we decided to wait 6 months or so to release “Fingerboard Road”. Somehow 6 months turned into 20 years. The album sat on a shelf gathering dust and aside from a very limited digital release, never saw the light of day… until now.”

Check out Goin’ Places’ cover of “I Saw Her Standing There” below, and head over to Mom’s Basement Recordswebstore on Friday, November 18th to grab your copy of Fingerboard Road, along with some of their other awesome pop-punk records.

Jasons

DS Photo Gallery & Show Review: The Jasons / Latecomer / Jerk! / Bottle Rat (Cattivo – Pittsburgh, PA 5/6/2022)

This review is better late than never… don’t blame me, blame Dying Scene for being on “vacation”… Anyway, with MC5 playing down the street, and The Chats, Mean Jeans, and Thick playing a few towns over, I didn’t know what to expect as far as a turnout on this rainy Friday in Pittsburgh. To make things […]

This review is better late than never… don’t blame me, blame Dying Scene for being on “vacation”… Anyway, with MC5 playing down the street, and The Chats, Mean Jeans, and Thick playing a few towns over, I didn’t know what to expect as far as a turnout on this rainy Friday in Pittsburgh. To make things more uncertain, it was my first time at this venue, which didn’t exist before I started a decade of living in NYC and New Jersey.  One thing was clear that night: people show up for The Jasons. It helped that the bill was also pretty stacked with pop punk vets, Latecomer, Jerk! (on tour from Las Vegas) and Bottle Rat, whose members have been doing the punk thing for what feels like decades.

Cattivo, in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh wasn’t at all what I expected. I expected a small – medium sized bar venue that might have a stage, or might not. I was way wrong. This is a dual-level venue that had The Jasons show being held downstairs. The room and stage were a decent size and there was a cash bar serving drinks. The room offered plenty of standing room, a lot of space for band merch, and the bathroom was acceptable.  Venues like this aren’t uncommon, but it had been a while since I’ve been to one like this. Aside from the shiny curtain in the back of the stage creating the backdrop, there isn’t really anything memorable about this place. You could say the focus is on the bands, which is always a good thing.

Bottle Rat

The first band up was Bottle Rat.  If you’ve been in the Pittsburgh punk scene in the last twenty years you’ve definitely seen these dudes in one band or another.  There’s something about Bottle Rat that takes me back ten years or so to what I remember loving about the Pittsburgh punk sound. The best way to describe that Pittsburgh sound and Bottle Rat is an energetic, growly, anthemic, blue collar street punk style. Every song is a toe tapper, some songs are even hand clappers, and there’s just something about these guys that leaves you wanting more. This performance was no exception. You can bet I’ll be seeing these guys a lot in the future and I’ve given their album, All My Friends Are Animals a few spins since the show.


Jerk!

Next was Jerk!, on tour from Las Vegas, NV. I’ve been following this band since I first heard about them through Mom’s Basement Records and was immediately intrigued. Jerk! plays a sort of pop punk / ramonescore hybrid with a drummer that reminds me of Bill Stevenson both in looks and style of playing. Their set was a lot of fun and featured a ton of upbeat and poppy songs. The only album I’ve ever heard from them is “Panic Attack” and they made sure to hit a ton of songs on that album.  They also performed their version of the Screeching Weasel song, “Guest List” which is always a crowd pleaser. There’s no telling when Jerk! will be back in the ‘Burgh again, but when they are I’ll be there!


Latecomer

The last opener of the night was Latecomer. I’ve known Zach and Pete since they were in their first band, Shuttlecocks, over a decade ago and I’ve had the pleasure of playing shows with this latest band.  These guys have been killing it for years and every time they take the stage, it gets more and more polished.  They dish out a brand of catchy as hell sing-along songs that never disappoint and remind me of bands like the Jetty Boys, Dopamines, older Menzingers, and an edgier Green Day. They have a few releases at this point and made sure to play songs from all of them during their set. The crowd started to really fill in around this time and everyone knew their songs and provided plenty of crowd participation. Always a great sign for a band. It was really nice to hear some of my favorite songs like “All My Friends” and “Refrigerator” live again.  Latecomer has always been very active, so if you’re in the Pittsburgh area and they’re playing, be sure to check them out!


Jasons

The headliner for the night were The Jasons from Crystal Lake, NJ! Boy do these dudes have a following.  What’s great about them is while they play a ramonescore style pop punk, you’ll see people from all different subgenres of punk coming out to support them! I’ve seen them a few times at this point and the show keeps getting better. Mainly because The Jasons have everything… a uniformed look, between song banter, great stage presence, and a great stage show… oh yeah, the songs are also catchy too. As soon as the first note rang out, the pit opened up, fists went into the air, and the excitement started.  The Jasons went on to rip through classics like, “Blood in the Streets”, “Get Fucked”, “I Wanna Be An Asshole”, “Dead Fuck”, and “J.J. Was a Headbanger”.  Overall, the set was flawless, right down to the smoke machines being in sync with the music, and after a quick (and forced) encore, the set was over and so was the show.


It had been a minute since I’ve attended a show where I truly dug all the bands on the lineup. It was also nice to see a ton of familiar Pittsburgh faces and I look forward to more of these types of shows to come. Thanks to all the bands, Cattivo, and the promoter Some Die Nameless!

Greetings, fellow degenerates! Welcome to the latest installment of the Dying Scene Record Radar. After taking a brief hiatus for Thanksgiving, we’re back in action once again with another weekly roundup of all things punk rock vinyl. Kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, crack open a cold one, and break out those wallets, because it’s go time. Let’s get into it!

Epitaph Records gets us started this week with a bunch of Bad Religion represses. Everyone’s favorite BR record The New America is back in print, alongside the critically acclaimed No Substance, and the underrated True North. Grab ’em here.

Epitaph has also repressed Propagandhi‘s Failed States on “translucent electric blue” colored vinyl. This one’s limited to 1,000 copies and you can get it here. Newbury Comics has an exclusive pink variant as well; go here to purchase that one. And in case any of you happen to care, this is the remastered version of the record.

One of my favorite pop-punk bands The Putz have a new Christmas record out now on Eccentric Pop Records. The five-song 12″ EP is called Ho Ho Ho, Let’s Go! and you can get it on red or black vinyl it here. Both color variants have an etched b-side.

Zia Records has a new exclusive repress of Tiger Amy‘s 2007 LP Music from Regions Beyond. This is limited to 300 copies on “ruby with baby blue splatter” colored wax; I think it looks pretty sweet! Anyway, go here if you wanna snag a copy.

Hardcore punk supergroup OFF! has announced a tour variant of their new record Free LSD. This pressing on red vinyl will be available at shows on the band’s upcoming west coast run. The good news for those who can’t attend is they have some copies available on their Bandcamp page. Get ’em while the gettin’s good!

Spanish skate punks Kill the President have a new 12″ EP out now. Give the record a listen below and grab it on vinyl here (EU) or here (UK).

Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, but if you thought the sales were over, you’re sorely mistaken, friends! Through December 11th, you can get 40% off everything on SBÄM Recordswebstore. Just enter code “XMAS22” at checkout. These guys have put out some absolutely killer records this year.

DS Record Radar: This Week in Punk Vinyl (Bouncing Souls, Useless ID, Giant Eagles & more)

Greetings, fellow degenerates! Welcome to the latest installment of the Dying Scene Record Radar. If it’s your first time here, thank you for joining us! This is a weekly column where we cover all things punk rock vinyl; new releases, reissues… you name it, we’ve probably got it. There was a lot of cool shit […]

Greetings, fellow degenerates! Welcome to the latest installment of the Dying Scene Record Radar. If it’s your first time here, thank you for joining us! This is a weekly column where we cover all things punk rock vinyl; new releases, reissues… you name it, we’ve probably got it. There was a lot of cool shit announced this week and this is one of the biggest Record Radars yet! So kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, crack open a cold one, and break out those wallets, because it’s go time. Let’s get into it!

Let’s start with that new Bouncing Souls record, shall we? New Jersey’s favorite sons rolled out the red carpet for their new album Ten Stories High, releasing two killer singles and a gargantuan number of colored vinyl variants. Just look at all those fuckin’ things! Some of these sold out already; this page links to all the places you can get each variant.

I’ve been very vocal about my love of Dutch pop-punk band Giant Eagles 🦅. Their first two records are some of the best pop-punk albums of the last 10~ years as far as I’m concerned. Both of these LPs have been out of print for a hot second, but they’ve just been repressed! Get Giant Egos on red vinyl here and Second Landing on clear colored wax here. If you’re in Europe, Shield Recordings has you covered.

In our last Record Radar of 2022, we brought you the news that hardcore legends 7Seconds were reissuing their 1985 LP Walk Together, Rock Together. Trust Records has now officially announced the reissue as well as some more color variants. Get it on yellow w/ black splatter colored vinyl here. Or, if you’re not a variant nerd like me, just buy the LP from Amazon and save a few bucks. Can’t be free Prime shipping, baby! All hail Bezos.

Here’s another one from Trust Records. I came across this while looking at the new 7Seconds reissue on their website… not 100% sure if it’s new, but I couldn’t find anything about a pink/white pressing of the Circle JerksGroup Sex on Discogs or anywhere else. So I’m gonna assume this is a new variant of the 40th Anniversary reissue Trust did a few years ago. Grab a copy here.

The Loved Ones frontman Dave Hause announced a new solo record earlier this week. It’s called Drive It Like It’s Stolen; check out the first single below. There are two color variants: the pretty one in the picture is limited to 500 copies, the other one is on plain jane blue wax (not sure how many of those are being pressed). Pre-order here.

Two new releases from Rad Girlfriend Records: First up is a brand new self-titled LP from Wrong Life! If you were a fan of frontman Fraser’s old band The Murderburgers, you will like this band (I know I do 🙂). Check out the first single “Internal Bleeding” below and pre-order the record here (US) or here (UK).

Rad Girlfriend’s other new release comes from Chicago’s Airstream Futures. Their new album Armer L’Harmonie is due out February 10th. Check out the first single “Bury Mary” below and pre-order the LP here.

Our friends at People of Punk Rock Records are always churning out killer reissues. Sometimes they put out shit from bands I haven’t even heard of! Quebec skate punks Xlarge are one of those bands, but I’m listening to these guys for the first time right now and they kick fuckin’ ass! If you like 90’s skate punk, I highly recommend checking out Xlarge. POPR is releasing the band’s two records on vinyl for the very first time, and you can get them here.

Here’s something that was literally announced as I was writing the Record Radar: It’s a brand new live record from Useless ID! The 28-song album titled Live In Tel Aviv was recorded at The Barby in Tel Aviv, Israel on August 20th, 2019. There are three variants of this Double LP, limited to 100 copies each. Pre-order here.

Last but not least (somebody’s always gotta be last, right?) is a brand new release from our friends at Punk Rock Radar! They’ve teamed up with Cat’s Claw and White Russian Records to co-release Dutch skate punk band Toska Fall‘s new record A Little Advice on red colored vinyl. Listen to a few tracks below and pre-order the LP here.

And that’s all, folks! Another Record Radar in the books. As always, thank you for tuning in. If there’s anything we missed (highly likely), or if you want to let everyone know about a new/upcoming vinyl release you’re excited about, leave us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram, and we’ll look into it. Enjoy your weekend, and don’t blow too much money on spinny discs. See ya next week!

DS Record Radar: This Week in Punk Vinyl (No Fun At All, Alkaline Trio, Snuff & more)

Greetings, fellow degenerates! Welcome to the latest installment of the Dying Scene Record Radar, the weekly column where we recap all the recent happenings in the world of punk rock vinyl.

Greetings, fellow degenerates! Welcome to the latest installment of the Dying Scene Record Radar, the weekly column where we recap all the recent happenings in the world of punk rock vinyl. Some quick housekeeping: this will be our last Record Radar of 2022, as there’s a major holiday next week that you may have heard of. With that out of the way, kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, crack open a cold one, and break out those wallets, because it’s go time!

No Fun At All gets us started this week, with a reissue of the highly underrated (in my opinion) State of Flow. Back in print for the first time in over 20 years! There are three variants: white (200 copies), cyan blue (200 copies), and black (600 copies). If you’re in Europe, or are willing to pay out the ass for shipping to the US, La Agonía de Vivir has all three colors available on their webstore. If you wanna save on shipping, our friends at Thousand Islands Records have some copies on black wax; grab your copy here.

Alkaline Trio‘s Remains is getting its first new pressing since 2007. There are two new variants of the double LP: red w/ black splatter (available here), and white w/ red splatter (available here). These are kinda pricey, but considering old pressings fetch over $200 on Discogs, 40-ish bucks ain’t such a bad deal!

British punk veterans Snuff have announced Crepuscolo Dorato, an LP featuring live takes of songs from their latest album, which has a much longer title that I will not be copying and pasting here. Available on black wax here.

Hardcore legends 7SecondsWalk Together, Rock Together is back in print. I haven’t been able to find an official announcement regarding this, but I have seen it listed for sale in a lot of places, at a lot of different prices. Garageland is selling pictured variant for $32, while Target has the “Trust Edition” listed for $15. Sounds like February 3, 2023 is the release date.

The Manges seem to have dug up some long-lost copies of their 1999 Clean Cut Kids 7″. This four-song EP features probably their most well-known song “I Will Always Do”. Essential record for any old school pop-punk collector. Grab your copy here before they’re gone!

TNS Records‘ latest release is from up-and-coming British punks Bruise Control. The band’s debut album Useless for Something is due out in early 2023. Check out the first single below and pre-order the LP here.

And because you can never have enough British bands in your life, Liverpool’s Mark Murphy & The Meds have launched pre-orders for their sophomore album Monochrome. Give the first single a listen below and grab the wax (250 copies on smoky clear colored vinyl) here.

Punk Rock Vinyl (who you may know from their very popular Instagram page) is releasing a compilation LP, featuring songs by bands like NOFX, the Bouncing Souls, and the Raging Nathans, among many others. There are two color variants, each limited to 250 copies, with cover art by Mark de Salvo. Get your copy here.

Our friends at Mom’s Basement are back on the Record Radar once again, announcing they are now carrying releases from Japan’s Waterslide Records in their distro. They also have a bunch of old school Mutant Pop 7″s in stock now, as well as that Riverdales covers LP we told you about last week. Hit up their webstore to see what’s up.

Last but not least, we have some more holiday deals for you, courtesy of Austrian pop-punk merchants Monster Zero Records! Through the end of 2022, get 25% off your order on their webstore with code “CHRISTMAS”. Records from 7 Years Bad Luck, The Mugwumps, The Windowsill, and a ton of other great bands. Don’t miss out!

And that’s all, folks! Another Record Radar in the books. As always, thank you for tuning in. If there’s anything we missed (highly likely), or if you want to let everyone know about a new/upcoming vinyl release you’re excited about, leave us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram, and we’ll look into it. Enjoy your weekend, and don’t blow too much money on spinny discs. See ya next year!
