The often amorous, and occasionally frightening NOBUNNY (one word, all caps) has been captivating audiences of dedicated fans and new believers since Easter 2001 (the day Joey Ramone died). Born in the desert outside of Tucson AZ, Nobunny started as an animal Elvis impersonator before deciding to try out his hand at songwriting. The raucous rabbit’s music is a intoxicating concoction of all the rights and wrongs that make up the heart and the soul of real rock n roll. Songs that sound as though they were written at the Brill building by a punk rock mutant back from the future. Some batshit brilliant bullshit.
NOBUNNY stayed deep underground for his first 6 years doing DIY solo tours, burning limited CDRs, and building a dedicated group of fans across the USA. NOBUNNY shows were purported to include a dizzying act that often featured nudity, dancing, chaos, and costumes (most notably NOBUNNY’s filthy rabbit mask).
In 2008 NOBUNNY released his first LP titled “Love Visions” on 1234GO! Records. The album was a hit among critics, punks, and nerds alike. A modern RNR classic filled with inept production, and songs as catchy as herpes. In 2009 Burger Records released the Mixtape/LP “Raw Romance”. An acoustical confessional brainstorm exploration of cassette goodness . In 2010 the rascally rabbit released a “warts n all” Live Album on Jack White’s Third Man Records. The year ended with Nobunny’s 2nd proper LP, “FIRST BLOOD”. Released on the Memphis’ Goner Records, the album is NOBUNNY’s off the deep end, poptastic, psych-o masterstroke.
NOBUNNY has spent most of the last 4 years touring North America, with 3 trips to Europe to boot. A licentiousness, lascivious, bon vivant who shows no signs slowing or toning it down. NOBUNNY loves you, and has made it damn near impossible not to love him back. Follow the white rabbit!
San Francisco’s Nubs cemented their place in history with the recording of their classic “Job” to vinyl. This misanthropic treasure became one of the top dozen or so cuts to ever be featured on a KBD volume and secured
Nubs legacy in the punk rock pantheon. Anti-work, anti-money, anti-cars, anti-everything, it’s the perfect punk statement backed up with a maniacal riff and lyrics delivered with the utmost in teenage snottiness.
Legend has it that the Nubs trio (David Muniz: drums/vox, James Stockford: bass/vox, and Steve Wellborn: guitar) self-released the single on their own Businessman Records label (backed with “Little Billy’s Burning” - itself a minor KBD classic) in a quantity of 400 copies which then languished in obscurity for over a dozen years. A few years after getting 50 copies into local San Francisco record stores, the Nubs began getting requests for the single from Australia, Japan,
Germany, and other parts of the planet, even the USA.
In 1993 “Job” was included on the fifth volume of the seminal Killed by Death compilation series, the notoriety of which drove copies of the record to sell for prices ranging anywhere from $100-300 on the collector’s market. Many have paid homage to the priceless piece of punk that is “Job”, from the New Bomb Turks (who’s ’96 cover turned many on to the song), to more obscure acts like Australia’s Rupture and more recently Houston’s Secret Prostitutes, and even modern indie-hardcore leaders Fucked Up included it on the first volume of their mix-tape series and often performed the song live.
The Nubs, the laziest punks in the world, finally released a CD that included the two classic 7” cuts along with other Nubs 1970s material, which shot to KUSF's number one slot for local bands and number two overall.
New York City punk reissue label Last Laugh has now brought justice to the world in 2013 by releasing the 1980 single in an exact reproduction, allowing the non-collector fans across the globe a chance to own this perfect piece of wax in its original form. Hey Mom!
Brass-knuckled, bubblegum garage-pop three piece from Oakland.
Four piece band with a weird name living in Sacramento, Oakland, and SF. Started in 2009 not knowing how to properly play instruments or write a song with more than one part. Dealt with a dozen line up changes and romantic breakups. In 2011 we finally fell into the perfect lineup and its been rock and roll smooth sailing since.
"Curious Sacramento four piece who give the impression they're going to be scuzzy as heck, but actually end up having many of the same doofus pop vibes as early Red Kross, Electric Blood and even raunchier moments of The Cannanes." -WIRE Magazine
Perfectly sloppy poppy punk rock juxtaposed well with pleasing melody. This band has a wonderfully crisp tone and an effortlessly beautiful lo-fi recording quality. -MAXIMUM ROCK AND ROLL
