A new project has reached Vive Le Punk that we like!! New band The Blades-and their single ‘Spirit of England’ released to tie in with the world cup. check em’ out!

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference” Spirit Of England’ is a charity ep for the "Forces". Singer, Jeneira says “We have ex-servicemen living rough on the streets, and the likes of Johnson Beharry, VC, attempting suicide. It’s a national disgrace. “‘Spirit Of England’ is a positive song for the World Cup ,which will have the even more positive side-effect of raising money for Help 4 Heroes. We love our footballers but let’s not forget that our boys and girls on the frontline, they are the backbone of the UK. This is London street punk at its best.” Make a difference – buy this ep. release date-07/06/2010-plastic head

Think of The Boys, The Briefs, Dickies and you¹ll get it.  The Cyanide Pills are from Leeds, UK and have been playing around for a few years, this is pure, very British punk rock with a great pop sensibility, they are heading out with the Cute Lepers in May and the will be doing a full tour later in the year.  This is from SugarBuzz MagazineŠ  I love the Cyanide Pill's tinny, spontaneous, cheap-sounding, production value, too. It sounds raw, and real...Americans tend to Pro-Tool the life outta everything, nowadays. They polish it 'til it becomes a product, loses all it's charm, and truthfulness. The 'Pills aren't merely eager young puppets, being master-minded by some grey haired old fart producer. I'm glad they ain't got nobody editing out all the raggedy, heart-felt bits! Man, the CYANIDE PILLS are fucking great! They're fun, boppy, now. Truly, the nazz. Bubblegum lyrics about politics and teenage alienation. They look terrific. You're sure to dig 'em. if you like real rock'n'roll. Seek them out, NOW.  Cute Lepers tri-colour debut LP + new single  Out this week from The Cute Lepers to coincide with their tour we have the single "Smart Accessories", taken from the album of the same name it features an exclusive version of the Beatles "You're Gonna Lose That Girl on the B-side. On a choice of red, white or clear vinyl. There's also a bumdle pack of all 3 colours. Lovely!   <http://damagedgoods.greedbag.com/the-cute-lepers/>  Also out this week is this great tri-colour vinyl re-issue of their debut LP "Can't Stand Modern Music". Limited quantities and when it's gone it's gone!

HEAVY TRASH LIVE DATES

Heavy Trash released their third studio album Midnight Soul Serenade though Bronzerat Records on October 12th 2009, recorded in New York City at NY Hed, Matt Verta- Ray’s infamous analog studio. The album is already being hailed as Jon’s finest work since Orange. From the brooding promise of “Good Man” to the subtle brutality of “(You’ve Got to Be) Gentle,” the outer-space terror of “Isolation,” and the lysergic balladry of “That’s What Your Love Gets,” this is the sound of two men, souls stripped bare, transmogrified.
 
Midnight Soul Serenade is a slightly darker, barrel-fermented, and brilliantly matured dose of Heavy Trash.  On every track Matt Verta-Ray’s guitars pulsate, ooze, and percolate, while Spencer croons and twangs, shakes and shudders, with raw power and passion. There are more switch-blade riffs, crazy rhythms, sexual tension, and mind-blowing moments of palpable release on this record than ever before.
 
Heavy Trash are risk takers, rockabilly daredevils flirting with fate. As with all Heavy Trash productions, Midnight Soul Serenade embraces both the future and the past. Backed by their troupe of veteran tricksters, road dogs, blues wizards, punks, and evil geniuses, they have created a new kind of groove, a soundtrack suitable for haunted bordellos and hedonistic ho-downs. There are surprises around every corner — sounds no one else would even dare to create.
 
Is this the world of two men keeping their psychosis at bay, or have they found true peace of mind and discovered the meaning of love? The answer lies within. Welcome to the Midnight Soul Serenade.
 
On stage and in the studio, Jon Spencer, has destroyed and rebuilt American roots music with such ferocity and wild abandon it is hard to believe that there is anything left. The trail of musical destruction in the wake of his groovy hate-fuck combo Pussy Galore still smolders with the stench of avant punk trash and nasty garage ooze and grind, while his towering work with the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion remains an indelible totem to his enormous mojo spirit and red-hot power of deliverance. He is Daddy Boss Hog! He is the Blues Exploder and Microphone Destroyer! A Gibson Brother! The man who shared a Chicken Dog with Rufus Thomas, got Soul with R.L. Burnside, and enjoyed a greasy Lap Dance with Andre Williams! He is /The Man Who Loved too Much/!!! Now, with his pal Matt Verta-Ray, he has become Heavy Trash, and is inviting you to a Midnight Soul Serenade.
 
Matt Verta-Ray grew up in the loving arms of left wing parents who would take him to folk and blues shows long before he sprouted sideburns. (His mother passed away in the ’90s, still angry that Dylan had gone electric, despite the fact – Matt is quick to point out – that she owned tons of Sun rockabilly 78s, which he very gratefully still has.) In the late ’70s, young Matt found himself one of only twelve people who went to see Bo Diddley at a Canadian fairground. After the show, Bo came out and preached to Matt for an hour about the dark secrets of rock’n’roll. And the rest, as they say, is history – from sitting on the edge of the stage with Bo, to thumping bass for Madder Rose, and then onto his hard-wired decontructionist rootsabilly band Speedball Baby, where he developed his slashing-dagger guitar style – to forming Heavy Trash with his friend Jon Spencer. Matt is also the mad scientist behind the jungle of tube amps and old-school echo machines that form the mutated nucleus of his analog cave, world-class recording studio NY Hed, where musicians come from all over the galaxy to learn the dark secrets of the Midnight Soul Serenade.

JELLO BIAFRA US TOUR

 Jello Biafra  And The Guantanamo School of Medicine Announce UXO Concert Cruise Performance, May 28th in New York UXO Tour Dates w/ The Coup, Anti-Flag, Tom Morello, Wayne Kramer and More!    On the heels of their critically acclaimed debut album, "The Audacity of Hype," supported by mindblowing and energetic live shows around the US (including dates opening for the newly reunited Faith No More), Jello Biafra and The Guantanamo School of Medicine have announced a special New York performance taking place next Friday, May 28th.  Working in conjunction with Rocks Off Concert Cruises and as part of the UXO Tour supporting GI Resistance, the event marks the kickoff of UXO's nationwide tour including performances and events around the country featuring the likes of The Coup, Anti-Flag, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, Wayne Kramer of MC5, Tim Barry of Avail and more.  About The UXO Tour to Support GI Resistance:  With Paper Garden Records extending its branches in creative new directions on a daily basis, we are thrilled to announce our alignment with some truly legendary musicians to support a cause that we truly believe in. The idea of music intertwining with politics in support of a movement to help influence the general consensus isn't exactly a new one, but the objective behind the UXO tour makes it difficult to deny that the organizers behind this project are taking an approach that will make people sit up straight and listen... then stand up and resist!  With an all-star lineup of bands including everyone from Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine and Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman to Anti-Flag, the UXO Tour has stepped outside of the stereotype of anti-war propoganda and put an innovative spin on the objective in order to appeal to everyone from the supporting troups and politicians to the general public and artistic and music communities by creating a genuinely stellar atmosphere and party element to each of the shows along the 6-month long tour.  The term UXO stands for Unexploded Ordinance.  In military terms, a UXO is "an explosive that did not detonate when employed and still possess a risk of detonation" – an apt metaphor for the groundswell of GI resistance to the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, a movement that the UXO tour's organizers see as "charged and waiting to explode."  The tour is intended to give an active voice to soldiers who oppose the wars, and inspire resistance-organizing within the GI community.  Active duty soldiers will be granted free access to the shows.  Kicking off with two shows aboard The Temptress (yes, that's a boat!) during NYC's Fleet Week as part of the Rocks Off Concert Cruise Series, the anti-war music event will be brought to military communities throughout the summer.  The tour will wrap in September with a show on the National Mall in Washington DC.      * photo by Elizabeth Sloan  The Audacity of Hype Tracklist 1. The Terror of Tinytown 2. Clean As A Thistle 3.
