by the Black Halos

Vancouver’s the Black Halos look to a slightly different golden age than that of the Clash and the Buzzcocks; they’re more enamoured of the glammed-up trash-rock of the New York Dolls, the sonic scuzz of the Stooges, and the snotty nihilism of the Dead Boys

Last day in L.A.

by Healthy Junkies

Hiya. We wrote this song during our U.S.A. tour of 2018. Saying goodbye to the city of angels was not easy as we wer flying high and on a roll. But all good things come to an end. At least we got a song out of it! This is an uptempo new wave/punk stomper and it waves goodbye to the world.

Little Blue Tyrants

by The Scoffs

The Scoffs hail from the Needle City (Seattle) where the grey skies loom above and the rain beats out a rhythm that fuels their vintage punk rock vibes.

To Live or Live Not

by Duncan Reid and the Big Heads

Hi. This is the first video track from our new, 4th album, 'Don't Blame Yourself'. It's the story of a man who decides enough is enough, rents his house out on Airbnb, catches a plane to Caracas and looks for a girl with whom to dance all night and sleep all day. After all, why go somewhere safe?

All Talk

The Split Seconds

We deliver a bold brand of raw 70's-style punk with undertones of reggae, rockabilly, classic pop, and garage rock. Our upcoming album "Counterfeit Reality" documents our experience as a punk band in the ultimate government town and being fed up with insulation, excess, abstractions, and lies.

The Grizzly Adams Band

Hey folks, we're The Grizzly Adams Band from Germany and we play kind of a Garage-Pop-Punk. We're four very uncool guys and just released our brandnew 7" (vinyl only) in a DIY way on our friend Peet's Label Chief Recordings. Here's one of the four songs - who knows, maybe you'll like and spread it!
