Since the mid-1980s, for many rebellious kids, experiencing a Murphy’s Law show has been a rite of passage. The guys in Murphy’s Law always put on more than a live show & their performances are big parties where everyone’s invited. A mainstay of the NYC scene for years, extensive touring has secured Murphy’s Law as a perennial favorite of hardcore fans everywhere… Over the course of their career, Murphy’s Law have recorded five classic full-length albums of angst-ridden punk songs: “Murphy’s Law” (1986), “Back With A Bong” (1989), “Best of Times” (1991), “Dedicated” (1996), which was produced by Daniel Rey and “The Party’s Over” (2002). Countless singles and covers have been recorded throughout the bands career which are listed on their website.. Murphy’s Law have been touring Japan, Europe and the U.S for years despite record label support, thus proving themselves to be one of the hardest working bands out there as well as the hardest rocking… Known for their great live shows and party ethics, Murphy’s Law is a true relic in the New York Hard Core scene. Let the party begin again!
I ATTACK started playing around the city of Chicago, building up a following and working within the Latino Pilsen Punk scene. Pilsen hardcore, fuckerz!
Malt Liquor plays unstylish trash rock without regard to trends or excessive persperation. Founded in 2012, the group pounds out primitive, fuzzed-out anthems featuring the bashing and crashing of Jake Pope (ex-Swampass), the thudding bearded-ness of Cliff Strangler (Soy City Stranglers) and the speaker-wrecking chords/tongue out of cheek lyrics of Tommy Rue (ex- Swampass, Spankwagon). The hip shimmy/shake garage punk emenating from the band bucks against pretention and over-analysis. For Malt Liquor, music drives feet and hips. Rock and roll does not judge or analyze the group and they graciously return this favor. This mutual respect results in frenetic live shows around the greater Midwest and a sonority that challenges the limits of magnetic tape. Their debut 7 inch record will be available in August 2013 on Cavetone Records.
Jake Pope slips into a musical coma and weaves tribal beats and sweaty, tasteful fills into the mix on his drums that will make ya stand up, shake your ass and say “Whoooo!”
All this time, these three were playing in different projects and going to see and lose their minds to each others bands. Finally, one day it clicked and they jammed together. Nothing ever made more sense. Malt Liquor was born and it was home.
The boys just laid down 3 tracks on tape for upcoming 7″ releases on Cavetone Records and are planning to be back in the studio before year end to record their first full-length LP. Catch ’em on the road this summer in the Midwest and rock the fuck out!
NEW CLEAR THREAT
New Clear Threat is a thrash punk band from the northside of Chicago. Originally starting back in ’97 as ‘Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children,’ a garage punk band that did a lot of Green Day covers, original members, Amit Parekh (bass), Charlie Medina (guitar), and James Kolasinski (drums) decided it was time for a change. After Eric Williams took over on lead vocals (after joining USMC as a second vocalist) and they started messing around with new sounds, New Clear Threat obtained it’s name. Shortly after, Warren Mendoza came in as the second guitarist to compliment and co-create NCT’s unique style. After recording some E.P.’s and playing out, in 2010 Amit went his way to go to Med school and Aaron Jaramillo (bassist of Rather Tragic) took his place.
