May 3, 2011 May this be the beginning of something great….our first compilation!
David Pattillo, creator and curator of Bang Bang Boogaloo, is a producer with a credit list from Alanis Morrissette to Robert Plant, The Black Crowes to the Beastie Boys. Last year he co-wrote and produced the Reni Lane debut for Universal Motown. He is a writer, producer, and member of the bands The Dirty Glamour, The Dead Exs, and upcoming artist Flor Zabala. “I have seen all these bands live, play in and produced two of them, and am completely stoked by their live shows and their songwriting. We are all part of the alt rock n roll blues, roots community in NYC and its only the beginning.”
The Fieros – To Pieces
The Fieros are a straight up, no-frills rock-n-roll band. Formed in 2005 and honored with Dallas Observer awards for Best New Act in 2006 and Best Indie Rock in 2007, their fan base has continued to grow steadily. In their short time together they have opened for The B-52’s, The Polyphonic Spree, Okkervil River, The Redwalls, The Whigs, and The Black Angels.
The Othermen – I Don’t Know Why
“In a month of raucous shows, the single craziest had to be the Midnight Monster Hop last Saturday at Otto’s Shrunken Head. The back room of Otto’s is neither spacious nor well ventilated, and the place was packed by the time The Othermen took the stage. The combination of their wild garage sound and onstage energy sucked the crowd right in. – Garage Punk NYC
The Dirty Glamour – No Way To Go But Up
The finest Lower East Side gutter rock, bred on the pure waters of the Gowanus Canal. Where the swamp meets the desert, where the slide meets the tambourine, where the electricity feeds the harmony.
Golden Animals – The Steady Roller
WXPN – Blending ’60s psychedelic- and surf-rock with bluesy folk, Golden Animals formed when Tommy Eisner (vocals, guitar) and Linda Beercroft (vocals, percussion) met on a sidewalk in Brooklyn. After recording the Do the Roar! EP, the duo relocated out west to house-sit for cult figure Gordon Kennedy, author of Children of the Sun.
True to the band’s biggest influence, The Doors’ Jim Morrison, the new desert environs inspired a wealth of music. The result is Free Your Mind and Win a Pony, which was produced by Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Blonde Redhead).
The Dead Exs – More Stuff
“With the current revival of rock music demanding its place among New York City nightlife, The Dead Exs are within the vanguard of this musical re-explosion. ”
– Garrett Prince, The Hurdy Gurdy (Jan 24, 2011)
The Naked Heroes – Foxy Moxy
“… they make their musical parents proud, rivaling The Black Keys or Black Sabbath. If you enjoy absolute chaos from a band that only has two members, then you are in for an experience when it comes to The Naked Heroes.” – KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle
Boom Chick – Cryin’ Rooster
“Take the roaring, frenetic guitar of T-Rex’s “20th Century Boy” from the 1973 album “Tanx.” Then add …The swinging dirty Delta blues of “The Originator” on Bo Diddley’s self-titled 1957 album. Then add …The spooky Mississippi blues of Johnny Lee Hooker from “Boom Boom. The sum? Boom Chick’s debut album, Show Pony.”
– NY Post
Kelle Calco and The Colored Boys – Same Dark Circles
“Wrote these songs while I was on the run, countin the days til she turned twenty one. They had us changin names, jumpin trains, flyin low, door to door man and disco. Picked this chick up on the side of the road, bags were packed, tops were down, and the folks were finally out of sight. Wrote these songs knowing I’ll be singin this tune for years to come and doin my thing every saturday night…”
The Compulsions – Groove On
The Compulsions are a critically acclaimed New York City rock ‘n’ roll band featuring vocalist and guitarist Rob Carlyle, guitarist Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses), bassist Sami Yaffa (New York Dolls) and drummer Frank Ferrer (Guns N’ Roses). A recent Classic Rock magazine review declared the group “Coolest Band In The World.” The Compulsions have released three EPs with a full length album slated for release in 2011 featuring a very special guest appearance by guitar legend Hubert Sumlin (Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters)
The Dirty Shames – You’re A Drag
The Dirty Shames were recently featured on Genya Raven’s Sirius Radio show, Goldie’s Garage, as well as being interviewed and performing live in studio on the B-sides Radio show (91.5 FM) New York.
Only Living Boy – My Heart Is Burning
“Only Living Boy mixes precise and toned monster riffs with interesting harmonies and a melodic approach that reminds one of Soundgarden, Wishbone Ash and Zeppelin.” —John Pfeiffer, Shoreworld/The Aquarian
