The Ex Idols - Social Kill

Consider the words of Gary Finneran. Start with one of the better songs on the debut CD by Finneran's band, Ex-Idols. "I'm insane," Finneran screams. "And I might not hear you say/`Please don't kill me/Please don't kill me anymore.'"
The song is titled "I Love You."
Here's Finneran again, this time on "Social Kill," the CD's equally sensitive title cut: "I'm just a bum with no money to spend/And I know I said I love you/But I fucked your friend."
He's a real treasure, that Gary Finneran.
"They're just lyrics," Finneran says with a laugh from his manager's office in L.A. "I try to be creative when I write a song. But I try to keep the lyrics kind of simple, too."
Mission accomplished. Indeed, Finneran repeatedly achieves both goals, in varying degrees, on Social Kill's 14-song fun house of killer chords and miserable mindsets.
Finneran seems like a nice enough sort on the phone. There's nary a hint of the budding psychotic who sneer-sings "Please don't kill me/So I can kill you" on the aforementioned "Go Away." Instead, Finneran comes off as an upbeat kind of guy. He's not the easiest conversationalist on the block, but he talks with enthusiasm when the subject suits him right. For instance, Finneran gets especially chipper in recounting Ex-Idols' recent evolution from being just another L.A. band to just another L.A. band with a recording deal.
"We've gone through it all, like everyone else," Finneran says of Ex-Idols' survival skills in and around Hollywood. "We've all done odd jobs, things like telemarketing, working at one-hour-photo places, selling latex gloves. You work at a job for six months and then quit and collect unemployment, and all the time, you're working on your band every night, practicing, taping rehearsals and trying to get a demo out."
That mix of work ethic and patience eventually paid off, with the help of simple good fortune.
"It was total chance," Finneran says of the band's deal last year with Relativity Records. "We had this demo, it was really good, it cost a lot of money--we were all working at the time--and we sent it to 30 record companies. This one guy [at Relativity] happened to like one little part of one of the songs. He flew out and met us, liked us and that's all it was."
Thus the recent release of Social Kill, a bruiser of a disc. Finneran's vocals, along with the considerable crunch of guitarist Duke Decter, make it sound like the band survived a trip to the nether regions of metal by way of old-timey punk. Decter comes through as the band's most valuable weapon; he's got a noticeable knack for cranking power chords straight from Steve Jones' glory days with the Pistols and the Professionals.
Decter joined Ex-Idols after the band's original guitarist was dismissed because of "creative conflict." It was, according to Finneran, a case of "one guy pulling when everybody else is pushing."
With the addition of Decter, Ex-Idols' otherwise-generic punk sound put on some weight. "Duke is a real straight, simple player," Finneran says, adding that "he's not one of these guys trying to play straight and simple. You can tell with those guys. Duke's for real."
Finneran's for real, too. Sort of.
"I'm a poser," he says, laughing. "I mean, who isn't, you know? I wasn't into punk ten years ago when there really was a punk scene. I'm like a lot of people who kind of got into it four years ago or three years ago."
The latest new wave of old-wave punk is big fashion these days, something Finneran's well aware of.
"When you're in a band now and you're playing punk, it really is kind of ridiculous," he says. "You have Green Day and you have Offspring and any one of a thousand other punk bands coming out every second. But that wasn't us."
Indeed, Finneran doesn't apologize for the more metal-oriented efforts on his r‚sum‚. When told his vocals occasionally ooze a hint of David Lee Roth schmaltz, Finneran proudly mentions that one of his previous bands specialized in Van Halen cover songs. As for Ex-Idols' other bloodlines, Decter comes from a firmer punk background. He played in a number of Florida acts, including the moderately successful Disorderly Conduct and F. Originally from Florida, as well, is bassist Sean DeMott, though for years, he's been anchored in Hollywood with Finneran. The same goes for drummer Lance Porter, an Arizona native, born and raised in Page.
Finneran and his rhythm section tried to kick-start several Hollywood-based bands over the years. Apart from Ex-Idols, they all died well short of the promised land.
"It can get grueling, trying to make it," Finneran says. "I give a thumbs up to anyone in a band who's out there still trying."
Not that Finneran makes the payoff sound like eternal bliss.
"It really doesn't mean anything to be signed," he says. "It just means you get to record for lots of money. You get to put your music down on record and make it sound really big."

T.S.O.L. - Revenge

Revenge is the fourth studio album by the American rock band T.S.O.L. (True Sounds of Liberty), released in 1986 through Enigma Records. With increased exposure brought on by continuous touring, and influenced by the growing hard rock scene in their native Southern California, the band moved away from the punk- and gothic rock-influenced sound of their past in favor of simpler rock numbers. To promote the album, two songs were used in film soundtracks: "Nothin' for You" in The Return of the Living Dead (1985) and "Revenge" in Dangerously Close (1986). "Revenge" and "Colors (Take Me Away)" were also made into the band's first music videos       

Thanx to TeGrow!

Legal Weapon - Squeeze Me Like An Anaconda

Legal Weapon are a Southern California punk band, initially composed of singer Kat Arthur, guitarist Brian Hansen, drummer Charlie Vartanian, bassist Patricia Morrison (formerly of The Bags and later of The Gun Club, The Sisters of Mercy and The Damned) and guitarist Mike R. Livingston.

The band's early full-length albums Death of Innocence (for which their lineup included Steve Soto and Frank Agnew of The Adolescents) and Your Weapon were well-received; its later efforts less so. With her powerful voice, Kat Arthur is often called "the Janis Joplin of punk".

The Humpers : Scott "Deluxe" Drake : vocals, guitar / Jeff Fieldhouse : guitars, vocals / Pinky Flamingo : vocals / Bill Warman : bass / Jeff Spring : drums .

Excerpt of a Scott "Deluxe" Drake interview in "Life in a bungalo" :

The liner notes of the Suicide Kings "Teenage Disaster" (Sympathy for the Record Industry) album make you guys seem like seedy characters; any truth to those rumors? Do you still have your old manager’s watch? I’ve never been convicted of anything. Speaking of the Suicide Kings, I bought this CD (maybe mid-1997?) called "The Humpers : High and Mighty Suicide Kings" (on a label I hadn’t heard of before and haven’t since Sonic Records). I’m pretty sure it’s a bootleg, but the sound quality is very good (better the stuff on the SFTRI album). It’s got all the songs off of the Suicide Kings actual LP plus some bonus stuff. The liner notes say it should be considered the first Humpers album. Have you seen this particular release? Who is “Pinky Flamingo?

Scott : - That is a bootleg and should NOT be considered a Humpers’ album, it’s a Suicide Kings album. The two were very different bands. The liner notes on that thing are complete nonsense. Pinky Flamingo was the singer of the Suicide Kings; he hasn’t played in any bands recently.

Ripped from my CD @ 320kbs

Slash City Daggers - Backstabber Blues

This sophomore release by the Daggers, now known as THE SLASH CITY DAGGERS, delivers blues-y, glam punk rocknroll produced by Jeff Dahl (of Angry Samoans fame). It's raunchy rhythms are so infectious that this album is being billed as 2001's answer to the New York Dolls.

"Punknroll has group sex with the Stooges, New York Dolls, and GnR to create the Daggers. It's really catchy and fun to rock out to while tapping your feet, sneering and trying to look cooler than you really are." -- Maximum Rock N Roll
