The Atom Age release video for new single “Walk Through Walls”


California “maximum R&B surf stompers” The Atom Age have released a video for their new single “Walk Through Walls”. The song comes from the band’s upcoming album Cry Til’ You Die, which is due out August 23rd via Tiger Dream and Asian Man Records. The video features shots of the band playing, as well as some BDSM between a leather clad human-dog and an actual dog, at least that’s my take on it.

Check it out for yourself below.

This is the first new music from The Atom Age since Hot Shame which was released back in 2015.

DS Photo Gallery: The Atom Age and Vicky & The Vengents at The Knockout SF 2.12.16

Last Friday I woke to a Facebook notification about a show at a local bar The Knockout here in San Francisco, featuring Bay Area favorites The Atom Age, Vicky & The Vengents, and The Krypters. The Teenage Dance Craze night began with help from local DJs Russell Quan, Okie Oran, and dX The Funky Granpaw, however I had my own little spinning party getting ready for the show, so I didn’t roll up until just at the end of the The Krypters’ set.

Vicky & The Vengents are a new one for me, and vocalist/frontwoman Vicky Tafoya commands control of the stage, bellowing out powerful lyrics with a little ‘Amy Winehouse’ style. The band bills themselves as “psychedelic maltshop punk/pop/ rock n’ roll…qith a love for all thangs dramatic, melodic, and loud, the girl-groups, guitars, grease and garage are all in the blender”. You can have a listen to the title track of their most recent release “You Used To Be My Baby” here.

I had most recently seen The Atom Age a couple weeks ago as they opened the stage for Agent Orange at DNA Lounge. Tonight they were headliners, and the openers did quite well to warm the crowd. Although, the band’s music does well enough on it’s own to get the coldest of crowds moving. In case you are unfamiliar with The Atom Age, the band has spent the last several years edging out an un-tapped niche in the punk sound, featuring strong saxophone, organ/keyboard, and guitar riffs that evoke a space-age, rocky, cosmic world where everyone is dressed in their dancehall best and dances til the last chord.

You can have a look at photos from The Atom Age and Vicky & The Vengents’ set below.

Big thanks to Peter, Ryan, Brandon, and the whole Atom Age crew, as well as the guys at Knockout for a good night of rock and dance. And sorry to Jello for disturbing you with my flash.



DS Photo Gallery: Agent Orange, Atom Age, Civil War Rust at DNA Lounge, SF (1.22.16)

I began last weekend’s string of shows Friday night with a band I had never seen before, and was extremely excited to do so – Agent Orange. The band first came into my consciousness when I started playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, and the band’s famous “Bloodstains” was part of the soundtrack. Those games were as influential as Punk-O-Rama, Mailorder Is Fun, Fat comps, or any other large collection of punk, in forming my love for the music I hold so dear.

DNA Lounge owner Barry Synoground is not just a business owner, he’s also a rad dude with an affinity for good music – specifically punk. The line-up last Friday epitomized that sentiment, with local Civil War Rust opening the night to a relatively full and eager crowd. I had seen the band a couple months ago with Dying Scene’s Yankee Brutal, and was excited for another raucous night. I love bands that exude passion on their sleeve, that show the drive and energy through their live performance, and Civil War Rust is just that band. The band is touring on the heels of their latest release “Help Wanted” which just came out last November (you can listen to it here). The guys really have it all – melody, grit, drops, breaks, bridges, gang vocals, and a fan-base that isn’t afraid to get their feet moving, and keep them moving, the entire set. I’m a huge fan of these guys and look forward to seeing more success from the quartet.

Keeping the energy flowing, and the local blood playing, next to the stage was Oakland-based The Atom Age (whom DNA owner Barry is a huge fan). The band released their latest album “Hot Shame” last summer and of course played their hit song “It’s A Mess”. I first saw the band six years ago, and since then I have witnessed a true development as the guys have really come into their own. Rocky, punky, funky, with a saxophone that reverberates through the entire venue. Guitarist/vocalist Peter Niven has become somewhat of a punk heartthrob it seems, as female fans woo over his every move.

The main event had finally arrived – Agent Orange. I was so excited to see the band and as they took to stage and opened with “Miserlou”, I know I was in for one treat of a set. If you could pick a handful of albums that really defined and drove punk back in the day, and have remained influential to this day, “Living In Darkness” is one of those albums. The band knows it, and samples heavily off the 1981 release, including “Too Young To Die”, “Everything Turns Grey”, “No Such Thing”, and of course “Bloodstains” to name a few. The band is timeless and sounds just as good today as they did 35 years ago. Seeing these guys was a real treat and definitely an early highlight to the year.

Have a look at the night’s photos below.

Thank you to Barry, Peter, Alan, and everyone else who contributed to this awesome night.



New episode of Dying Scene Radio: The Bobs interview Gavin McInnes (Co-Founder, VICE) then Bob Noxious quits the show and Elena Venetia jumps in his grave – this one’s a doozy!

This week on Dying Scene RadioBob Noxious quits the show LIVE ON AIR, but not before he and Bobby Pickles welcome Gavin McInnes (Co-Founder, VICE) by way of the interwebs to discuss how punk rock helped shape his successes. An accomplished entrepreneur, writer, radio/tv host, McInnes is living proof that English majors can accomplish a lot more than just being a teacher, not that being a teacher isn’t a great accomplishment or anything. Then a new co-host jumps directly into Bob’s grave! Her name is Elena Venetia and she’s a hot, tatted, New York City punk rock chick, who does not want to be known as the “hot, tatted chick co-host” – just “co-host” (but she’s far from a feminist and wants to make that clear right now). Episode 31’s recurring theme: EVERYBODY is replaceable.
