Hunx & His Punx
HUNX AND HIS PUNX have returned with Street Punk—a new album filled with the catchiest and most hateful punk songs heard in eons. Street Punk is an unrelenting tour de force, echoing early 80s hardcore, 90s grrl sounds, Darby Crash on helium, and the female answer to The Misfits.
After members dropping like flies and moving around the country, Hunx and His Punx is now led by Seth Bogart and Shannon Shaw, who split songwriting and vocal duties. In the years since their last album, 2011’s Too Young To Be in Love, Seth recorded a solo album called Hairdresser Blues (2012) and started a homemade TV Show called Hollywood Nailz, while Shannon released Dreams In The Rat House (2013) with her other band Shannon and the Clams. Somehow during all of this Seth and Shannon managed to secretly meet in Los Angeles and Oakland to gob out Street Punk.
Recorded in just a couple days by Facundo Bermudez (who has produced albums by Mika Miko and No Age), Street Punk includes a cover of the Beastie Boys' early hardcore anthem “Egg Raid on Mojo" and songs about bad skin, teen angst, social wimpery, trash, isolation, schizophrenia, peroxided delusion, rat parties and vengeance.
Cherry Glazerr is an LA based band. Hannah plays drums, Sophia sings, Sean plays bass and Clementine plays guitar/sings.
Criminal Hygiene (CRMNL HYGNE) was formed in 2011 over a couple of really good burgers at Olympian Family Restaurant in South Central Los Angeles. Eat lunch there and you might start a band too, its a fucking great establishment. They have Cherry Coke on tap and they are very generous with their Thousand Island dressing, which goes good with anything on the menu. A good vegetarian option is the Avocado Sandwich with fries, a Cherry Coke and a couple things of Thousand Island. Their most famous dish however is the 1/2 Chicken Plate. I had this once with my good friend Grady, we each ordered one to go and ate it on our porch. It was an amazing meal, one of the best ever had by anyone. We each had 2 things of Thousand Island and a Cherry Coke along with it. The description of the plate might sound kind of odd, but it's one of those things that makes sense once you experience it, like mini golf. The base is a nice romaine salad with tomatoes. Right on top is the chicken... one leg and one breast. To the side is a chunk of buttered garlic bread and behind that is a handful of fries. All this is served with a side of salsa and Thousand Island....mmmm. I've also heard amazing things about the various types of face-sized burgers... avocado, avocado w/bacon etc.
We're a band from Los Angeles, CA. Our debut record 'She's Gone' will be released on Don Giovanni Records on October 29th, 2013.
UPSET is: Ali Koehler (guitar, lead vocals), Jennifer Prince (lead guitar, vocals), Patty Schemel (drums), and Katy Goodman (bass).
