The AMAZING Byrds in glorious MONO ripped by yours truly! What else needs to be said???
Remember where you saw it first!


"Dead End", the debut full length by Finnish rock'n' roll guitarslingers THE HUNTERS was released recently on STUPIDO RECORDS. This is certainly one of the best, rawest and sweatiest shot of sleazy rock'n'roll to come out off the Nordic countries since decades. 

This five piece got it all in spades: the energy, the swagger, the guitars riffs and the sing a long choruses that stick in your head for weeks. If you are looking for the twin brother to "L.A.M.F" by Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers, don't look any further, you just found it!! Yours truly had a little chat with lead singer EKI and Lead guitarist SONNY to know more about this band:

1) What can you tell about The Hunters? Who is playing what in the band? How long are you guys together as a band? Were you in other bands previously? 

-Hunters is a standard five-piece rock and roll band consisting of Eki Hunter : vocals, Sonny Dawoud :lead guitar, Samu Skinnari : rhythm guitar, Olavi Pietiäinen :  Bass and Akseli Aro : Drums. We’ve been playing together since 2007. Lead guitarists have come and gone, but when Sonny joined the band in 2009 things just clicked.

-The idea to create a band came to Eki and Samu after a night of drinking, despite Eki and Olavi hadn’t played in bands before. Previously Akke played in Third Man Down. Samu played bass in Caroline. Sonny played guitar in Ace Up The Sleeve.

2) About the debut full length record "Dead End", can you explain the choice of the title and the lack of information mentioned on the cover? Do you -on purpose- intend to stay a mystery for everybody?

-After we were done with the studio and heard the masters, the band felt like “Dead End” was the title track for us. The lack of info on the album covers is because we wanted to keep it as simple as possible. From the inner sleeve you can find the information you need.

3) To what kind of music did you listen to as a teenager and does it still influence your today
work? What was your favorite band as a teenager? Name 3 bands that you consider still have a influence on your own work today.

The influences haven’t change that much, from our work you can still hear those teenage kicks.
I’ll bet you know what I mean…If we had to name 3 bands that influenced our music today… Okay, all time favorites, not in any particular order: Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers; T.REX and The Undertones 

4) Is there a main composer in the band or is everybody involved in one way or another?

-Most of the ideas are by Eki and Sonny, but all the songs are arranged by the whole band.

5) The Hunters are often compared to Hanoi Rocks, which I can agree with to a certain extend, but would it not be more accurate to say that you guys are the true heirs of the Hurriganes? Their gig in Tavastia in 1974 is a classic. Do you agree with both these comparaisons or do you consider there is way more than that?  

-It’s always an honor to be compared to any band that we look up to. But if Hanoi and ‘Ganes had a child that bastard would be us. We just play straight forward rock and roll, so the listeners can make up their own minds.

6) Do you have a video on youtube featuring a track from the LP??

-We have four videos from the LP. “Dead End”, “Shivers” ,“Radio” and “Get Wrecked
You can find them all and more from Youtube by user name HuntersRockAndRoll.

7) What can concert goers expect at a The Hunters gig? Are you playing any famous cover songs? 

-Lot of energy. Lot of melodies. No samples. No playbacks, just sweat and pure rock and roll.

8) Does Helsinki, Finland have a long history of rock bands, that goes way back to the 60's? Today it seems your country is best known for its metal bands of all kinds, ain't it?

-We’ve had lots of good rock and roll bands since the 60’s, but most of them are in Finnish, with a few exceptions. Seems like Finns dig darker kinda music like metal, probably because of the depressing darkness.

9)  The album is released on "Stupido records", is this a famous label in Finland??

It’s not that famous label, it is more popular among the underground music.

10) What are the plans for 2017? Are the Hunters gonna tour Europe soon? 

We are writing new material constantly and our second album is bound to come. We’ve had some good reviews from the States and U.K. No booked dates yet, but we have some connections that we hope will work out. If anyone wants to see us play in their town, feel free to contact us.

PALE LIPS - Wanna Be Bad

Hailing from Montreal, Quebec, The Pale Lips is an amazing all-girl rock'n'roll quartet blending together its own brand of Bubblegum Punk/ Power Pop/ Rock n' Roll. The girls describe it very aptly as "Drippy mascara slopped rock n roll with sprinkles!" 

The band's debut album, "Wanna Be Bad" was released last month on Resurrection Records from Spokane, Washington. The CD version is available from Waterslide Records (Japan). Of course this blog wanted to know a little more about these young ladies and yours truly had a nice chat with them:

1) Girls, we would like you to tell the viewers of this blog the full story of The PALE LIPS. The origins of the band, how did you meet, who is playing what, your first release "Got A Sweet Tooth"; We want to hear it all from you!

Lynn started the band in 2013, anxious to hone her drumming skills. Her buddy Jamie played bass, and Ilona joined after some cajoling from Lynn. Our friend and local karaoke queen Jackie Blenkarn was an obvious for a singer! We all bonded instantly and have been having a real hoot ever since!

2) About your full length debut "Wanna Be Bad", can you explain the choice of the title and the choice of artwork? Do you want to be seen as a band that people better not mess around with or is this all pure fun?

The title is a track from side A, and seemed the best fit for an album title. It's all for funzo! We're good bad! The cover was done by our good friend Ken MacLaurin of Ottawa, who's also done album art for the Barreracudas, First Base, a Joneses reissue from Full Breach Kicks Records (RIP), and his own band Mother's Children to name just a few. He's quite prolific, and a greatly talented dude. The illustrations on the insert were drawn by another great talent and friend, tattoo artist Vinny Ramone. 

3) To what kind of music did you listen to as a teenager and does it still influence your today work? What was your favorite band as a teenager? Name 3 bands that you consider still have a influence on your own work today.

Ilona: I listened to a lot of easily accessible Epitaph and Hellcat records bands as a teenager until one day a Cramps cassette tape changed my life. After that I was able to trace the punk rock lineage back. From the record collection of teenage Ilona, three artist that still influence me would be The Cramps, New York Dolls, and Hasil Adkins.

Jackie: I went through many different phases from my early teenage years through my later ones, listening to everything from skate punk like Millencolin and Screeching Weasel, to emo bands like Saves the Day and The Get Up Kids, to Canadian indie bands like the Constantines and Death From Above 1979, to political punk like Propagandhi and Strike Anywhere. Also a huge Elliott Smith phase. But the only band that I listened to then that I still listen to with any regularity is the Ramones and maybe Nirvana (Bleach is one of my all time favourite records). Also, Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables by the Dead Kennedys was one of the very first LPs I bought and I still love and listen to it regularly. I also liked the Cramps then and now!

Jamie: I used to listen to a lot of Green Day, Rancid and skate punk too! (I secretly still do...)! And now I listen to a lot of different music, from King Tuff, Black Lips and Shannon and the Clams to all my old high school classics. There is definitely a sprinkle of influence from all of them in what we produce!

Lynn: During high school there was a lot of grunge happening so Nirvana was indeed a band I enjoyed and could listen over and over any day and still learn a lot from. My brother was into heavy metal so I have to say I pretty much listened to many styles of music. And hung out with many hippies so I got to listen to all the classic hits. Such as Kinks, CCR and the list can go on.

As for today the bands that influence me a lot today would have to be Vacation, The Spits (wayne's drumming), and definitely can't forget Ramones

4) Is there a main composer in the band or is everybody involved in one way or another?

Ilona and Jackie took the reins on most of the compositions on Wanna Be Bad. Moving forward, we are all composing!

5) Is there any video made to promote one of the songs of the albums? 

Yes! You can check out videos for Wanna Be Bad and Mary-Lou Sniffin' Glue on the Youtube. We will be premiering a video for Queen of Spades shortly, so stay tuned for that!

6) What can concert goers expect at a PALE LIPS gig? Are you playing any famous cover songs? 

They can expect to have a lot of fun. We always have a little **something special** for every show. We try to keep it fresh and change a little for every show.

7) Is there a new rock'n' roll scene in Montreal with JONESY and you and maybe some other bands? 

There is a lil' rock n' roll scene here now, and it rules! We have the pleasure of being surrounded by SO MANY talented people and bands. Bands like Dany Laj and the Looks and Les Deuxluxes are definitely worth mentioning in the city at the moment!

8) What are the plans for 2017? Are the PALE LIPS coming over to Europe soon?

why, yes! We are coming to Europe in May and June of 2017. No details yet but you can expect to see our mugs in Spain, Germany and Italy.

9) Anything you want to add?

Thanks, eh?! And y'all can expect our next EP "Should've Known Better" out in early 2017 from the lovely folks at Surfin' Ki and Resurrection Records. We are really stoked on the songs and the artwork for this one... we can't wait to share it with you!

A3.Early In The Morning
B1.I'm Gone

The VINDICATORS were Canada's second-best-known 60s-garage trash teens. They formed in Calgary, playing farfisa-driven 60s covers and originals. They were singer-guitarist Chris Carlson, guitarist Daaren Boreham, organist Colin Forsyth, bassist Ben Sherazi, and drummer Bryce Dunn.

This 12" was the last release by Montreal's Og Music.Og Records played a seminal role in Canadian independent music history by setting up a truly national network of bands through their It Came From Canada compilations, of which they released one a year between 1985 and 1990. Resisting modern trends, Og bands drew from traditions from country to blues to garage punk to '60s pop, all approached with originality and goofy enthusiasm. Along with the establishment of campus radio across the country, and the crucial CBC radio programs Brave New Waves and Night Lines, Og paved the road for the indie explosion of the early '90s.
