I’d not come across St Louis’ Horror Section before seeing their name on the Dying Scene review list but I’m very glad I took the time to check them out.
This, their self-titled debut, was released back in December on Eccentric Pop Records and serves up 16 slices of horror themed pop punk – and damn fine it is too. There is a strong, ominous Lillingtons vibe on tracks like They’re Inside, First Kill & Remains while there are lighter, poppier moments such as Are You There, Rooms and Echoes & Make Them Pay. Elsewhere we get more straight up driving punk rock, examples being Murder & instrumental track Working Title. The horror influence is clearly there through the whole album but, where previous Eps are dedicated entirely to specific horror movies (The Omen, Season of the Witch etc), you could easily listen to a portion of these songs oblivious to their macabre influence.
The album is consistently excellent from start to finish and so catchy that you’ll be singing along on your second listen. If you’ve got a soft spot for Ramones-core meets early Fat Wreck skate/pop punk then these guys will be right up your street.
The album is up on Spotify now.

Formed in Berkeley, California in 1986, Sweet Baby (and their contemporaries Operation Ivy, Crimpshrine, the Mr. T Experience, etc) played a seminal role in the earliest days of the Gilman Street punk scene. Many credit Sweet Baby with inventing an entirely new genre of music – one which melds the harmonic pop sensibilities of the Beatles and the Everly Brothers with the frenetic four-on-the-floor song structures of the Ramones and the Buzzcocks. It’s a genre that came to be called “pop punk,” and it’s a genre that Sweet Baby defined and perfected years before anyone else.
Out of print on vinyl for over twenty years, Sweet Baby’s “It’s A Girl” LP has attained a cult-like following and has influenced virtually every pop-leaning punk band of the last two decades. Eccentric Pop Records is beyond stoked to (finally!) offer this limited edition reissue pressing – featuring completely remastered audio and pressed on pink vinyl, this album has never looked or sounded better, and is being offered with a brand new Sweet Baby 7” featuring 2 previously unreleased studio tracks and 2 live songs from 1986!
To celebrate, and to help spread the word, Dying Scene and Eccentric Pop are offering one hell of great giveaway contest! One lucky winner will receive:
– Sweet Baby “It’s a Girl!” Reissue LP on pink vinyl (limited to 500 copies)
– Sweet Baby bonus 7” (housed in a hand-screened sleeve and numbered out of 250 copies)
– Test pressings of both the LP and 7”
– Sweet Baby “1989 Tour” T Shirt
– Additional records from the Eccentric Pop Records back catalog
That’s one hell of a prize pack! To enter just fill out the form below!

Today we bring you a special treat, premiering not one, but two tracks from Kepi Ghoulie and the Accelerators, “Carly Simon” and “Fun in the Dark.” Both tracks will appear on the upcoming album Fun in the Dark, to be released on March 24th through Eccentric Pop Records. Check out the two songs below.
Fun in the Dark is a re-imagining of the classic 1999 Groovie Ghoulies album of the same name. While Kepi Ghoulie remains on the vocals, he is backed-up musically by Holland’s Accelerators (as well as back-up vocals provided by Sacramento’s Dog Party). This is the first in a series of re-recorded Groovie Ghoulies albums to come, the next one featuring The Copyrights providing the music for Re-Animation Festival (we’ll keep you updated on that).
“Once again, we have created a recording of a group of friends who appreciate and respect what each other does, joining forces to make a document of that relationship and the music/fun/energy it has brought forth! “
The original Groovie Ghoulies album will also be re-issued sometime in the future through Green Door. You can pre-order this new version of Fun in the Dark here or here, along with Groovie Ghoulies’ Appetite for Adrenochrome on LP and CD.

Former Groovie Ghoulies frontman Kepi Ghoulie is releasing a new solo album titled Kepi Goes Country tomorrow (November 18th) via Eccentric Pop Records and today we’re very pleased to bring you an exclusive stream of one of its tracks. Stream “Fortune Teller” below while you read this message from Kepi about the release:
I have been playing music for over 30 years, and if you asked me to hand you ONE recording of what I have accomplished with my life, THIS would be it! :)
Recorded near a castle in France (no kidding, we are already on a magical path here, yes?), and then brought back to California, where the talents of Lucy and Gwendolyn Giles (Dog Party) were added to the production, mandolin, keyboard stylings, and more from the incomparable Third Man recording artist David Houston, this thing just kept growing with depth and beauty…
This is a project that I have been wanting to undertake for the last few years… comingfrom a punk/rock n roll/garage background and a love of roots music, and touring relentlessly acoustic for the last few years, and I am so happy with the way that this turned out!!
We often call this thing we do, this business of ours, a music industry… ultimately, however, the thing that we are selling is ART, and sometimes the ART gets lost in the commerce…
With “Kepi Goes Country,” what you have transcends ART and commerce! Sure it is both, but what you have is FRIENDS having FUN, creating MEDLODY and POSITIVITY in a musical environment, and to me, that is EVERY SINGLE REASON to get into this line of “business” after all!
Sure the record title is a tip of the hat to the legendary record created by Jonathon Richman, isn’t he an inspiration to ALL of us? He sure should be.. making music, traveling the world, making people happy… sounds good to me!
I have spent 30 years making and performing music, and if I could do this EVERY night, with THIS batch of people, I would be a very happy fellow! But from here I will be off to do other projects with other awesome friends…
“Kepi Goes Country” represents a personal high mark in a very long and fruitful career, I sincerely hope you feel the same way! If not, that’s cool too, because this is ART, and ART is subjective! I hope you are having an amazing day, finding some music, art, or friends that give you a great feeling! Cheers, and thanks for listening!
Your Pal, Kepi

Horror pop-punk partners-in-crime Horror Section and Eaten Back To Life are gearing up to release their new split LP titled Split In Two on September 4th through Eccentric Pop Records, and we’re stoked to bring you all an exclusive stream of the record!
Give the split a listen below, and head over to the label’s webstore to pick it up on on toxic green vinyl. All pre-orders come with an awesome set of trading cards with themes based on songs from the LP.
When the sun’s out and I’m feeling carefree I love my ska and pop-punk. When I’m feeling nostalgic and wistful I skew towards Menzingers or emo. When I’ve had three cups of coffee and need an outlet for the nebulous discontentment that silently builds behind the exterior of my stoic demeanor I turn towards hardcore-punk. That’s where I’m at this morning so when a request to check out the debut album from Californian skate-punk/hardcore act Facelift hit my inbox it was perfectly timed. This music is raw. It’s fast as hell. And it’s f’ing pissed off. Oh, and it’s riddled with metallic riff breakdowns which absolutely clinched it for me (give it 2:20 into the album opener to see what I mean). Turn up the volume and let off some steam with me by streaming “Sinceforevertilwhenever” here.
