Last American Buffalo
Los Angeles based Rock'n"Roll group Last American Buffalo was originally founded by lead singer Kevin Compton. In 2011 he joined with multi-instrumentalist Josh Grolemund and Bassist Vic Artur. Together with Grammy nominated producer Billy Mohler they released several EP's and singles. In the fall of 2012 they released "Here She Comes" their most Rock'n'Roll inspired effort to date, and their first self produced work.
Around that same time Kevin began collaborating with singer/guitarist Bryce Wayt of the GT350's, who then officially joined the band as an additional songwriter and frontman, a la Joe Walsh. Drawing inspiration from Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker to Tom Petty, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin (and a little AC/DC for good measure), they took to the studio to write and record their first full length Album, scheduled to be released in July 2013.
"Sometimes we forget where we came from, and in an era of manufactured music, Last American Buffalo reminds us that it's the bluesy chords, the groovy beats, and the rebel poetry that are the ingredients to organic rock & roll."

"The least punk band that I like the most"

IRONTOM emerged at the beginning of the year with an intent on forging a presence for themselves on the Los Angeles music scene. With influences ranging from The Arctic Monkeys to Led Zeppelin, the music exhibits a variety of styles and sounds on top of a classic sensibility for song writing. The personalities of each of the five musicians combine to form an undeniably powerful and energetic sound.
Wake Up Lucid
Wake Up Lucid doesn't make nice. Not musically, anyway. The band of cousins — Ryan, Ian and Jamie Baca — mete out scuzzy blues you imagine sprung from gear that barely works, seething with emotion and crackling with defiance toward those who would water down rock 'n' roll for the digital age. After thundering onto the scene with the EPs "Look Alive People" and "Sugar," the Bacas found an ally in producer Joe Cardamone (the Icarus Line), who worked with them on their debut full-length (due in August). The album is titled, fittingly, "Feel It," and the title track implores you to do just that: Feel it, 'cause it's going to hurt a little. – Kevin Bronson (Buzzbands.la)
the crazy squeeze
Not since the Traveling Wilburys has there been a supergroup as universally anticipated as The Crazy Squeeze. If you were into the underground punk/rock n' roll scene in the late '90s and early 2000s, you know who these guys are. You own their records. You bought them shots. You friended them on Myspace. And now they have joined forces to create a veritable justice league of punk rock! Where else but in Hollywood could Johnny Witmer (of The Stitches), Frankie Delmane (of Now Wave faves the Teenage Frames), Chris B. (of the Richmond Sluts), and Johnny Sleeper (of the Superbees) have come together to combine their prodigious & complementary talents for the betterment of the free world?!
The Crazy Squeeze - now with Dat Ngo ex-Super Bees in on bass - are everything you'd expect and then some. Combining vintage glam wham-bam (New York Dolls, Slade) with straight-up rockin' punk, their sound is pure raunchy fun with hooks out the wazoo. You know: music for fucking! It's just got that swagger. Of course Witmer is on fire on guitar, doing the Berry/Thunders thing like he was born for it (because, ya know, he was!). And with the criminally underrated songwriter Delmane involved, you know the songs are gonna be aces. If you like high-energy, sing-along rock n' roll with ripping guitars and an irresistible backbeat, go straight to "Boys Are Gonna Be Here Soon" and "Out of My Head" and fall in love! Yes, sir! "All Lies" slows the tempo and brings a harder edge, but it proves to be equally great. With the release of this full-length album the Crazy Squeeze are poised to be the next big thing in punk rock n' roll. If you enjoyed the Dolls, Joneses, or any of these guys' old bands, it's time to get on board the Crazy Squeeze bandwagon. Pour yourself a hard drink, and shake it! - Lord Rutledge (Faster and Louder)
