Stream Big D And The Kids Table covers album “Strictly Covered”

This is the kind of covers album I can get behind. Some of my absolute favorite punk anthems (Rancid’s “Old Friend,”, Propagahndhi’s “Ska Sucks,” Operation Ivy’s “Freeze Up”) are given a unique twist by one of the ska scene’s most recognized bands – Big D And The Kids Table. Singer David McWane explains how it came about:

“This was a super fun album for us to do. Before writing a new Big D LP, we always like to write an EP first, so that we can get some ideas out, hang, chat and have fun. Instead of doing this cycles EP we did a full covers record. After showing Dickey Barrett of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones our cover of their tune Dr. D, he invited us to play the entire album at this years Throwdown. We recorded it in the center of Allston with Benny Grotto and had it mastered by Jeff Lipton in Watertown MA. J from The Suicide Machines joined us on an Op-Ivy cover, because we had so much fun playing it love in Chicago while playing w/ Goldfinger. There are two other amazing Boston artists on the LP – Morphine & Sam Black Church two of my personal all time favorite bands.”

Old Against Me reincarnated through Chicago punk act The Damn Tracks

If Against Me! had a second singer and written a different album instead of “As The Eternal Cowboy” it might have sounded a lot like The Damn Tracks‘ new release “Second City Is Burning.” The Chicago three piece has at least one singer that to me sounds a lot like early Laura Jane Grace (aka “Tom Gabel”) and the dynamic song writing of feels reminiscent of early Against Me as well. I’m only 4 tracks in but feel like I’ve stumbled onto a gem of an album. Join me in the discovery below!

Texas pop-punk veterans Bowling for Soup are streaming their tribute to the late Eddie Money, a cover of his hit song “Two Tickets to Paradise”. Money recently succumbed to esophageal cancer on September 13th. “Two Tickets to Paradise” came out back in 1977 on Eddie Money’s début album. Bowling for Soup originally recorded this cover way back in 2006, it was originally meant to be a part of the film “Two Tickets to Paradise!”, but for whatever reason was never released.

Call it an ode to Eddie Money or a celebration of their 25th year as a band, Bowling for Soup kills this cover so check it out below.

Bowling for Soup is now out on the road celebrating their 25th anniversary, they recently announced some shows across the pond with “super special guests” Simple Plan for February, which you can also check out below.

Clowns release video for “Soul For Sale”

Aussie punks Clowns have released a video for their song “Soul for Sale”. The song comes from the band’s latest release Nature/Nurture which came out earlier this summer on Fat Wreck Chords. The new video is a part of the band’s initiative to revitalize the Melbourne live music scene. With many smaller clubs and venues facing closure, Clowns went out and played five shows in smaller capacity “dive” bars. The shows helped to reignite the sense of community, as well as give the flailing bars a boost with the near capacity crowds.

The Keepin’ The Dive Alive initiative should be considered a success and the band had this to say about it: “We heard that some of these venues were facing closure and wanted to do something! The biggest highlight for me was seeing how much people loved these venues, and how much they appreciated the our efforts. You could really feel the community behind the shows and to give back to that community who have been so kind to us over the years really felt good. I wanna do it again next year but in a different city!”

Naturally the video shows a ton of live footage of the Keepin’ The Dive Alive run of shows, so check it out below.

As mentioned above Clowns released Nature/Nurture earlier this year.

AJJ streaming “A Poem” off upcoming album “Good Luck Everybody”

Arizona folk-punks AJJ or the artist formerly known as Andrew Jackson Jihad are streaming the first track “A Poem” off their upcoming album Good Luck Everybody, which is due out in January of next year. Sean Bonnette former social worker and front-man for AJJ had this to say about the new album: “There’s something that comes along with scrolling through your phone on Twitter or Instagram and seeing a puppy, and then a joke from a comedian, and then a young black person being shot by police, and then another puppy, and then your friends announcing a tour, and then children in cages,” says Bonnette. “There’s something in that, that fucks your brain up. I don’t know if it’s made me more of a passionate arguer or just made me confused and numb.”

Check out the new song below.

AJJ last released Ugly Spiral: Lost Works 2012-2016 earlier this year.
