THE BROADSIDES [2011] Many Fouls and Mishaps EP

The Broadsides is a alt-country band from Auckland, New Zealand formed in 2009. Their music contains elements of hillbilly, outlaw country, gospel, Americana, gothic country, bluegrass, gypsy and rock ‘n roll.

 While each of these sub-genres appeals to a niche audience, The Broadsides have found a way to unify these genres into a unique sound, which is defining feature of The Broadsides. Audiences recognise the type and meaning of the music from old family records and movies.

The original songs are about love, loss, redemption, and the influence of hostile landscapes on our psyche and belief in God. The Broadsides stick with the country music tradition of storytelling and developing a strong connection with the audience.

The band consists of five members: Alan Meharry (vocals, rhythm and slide guitar), Etienne Harris (double bass), Dave Khan (violin, guitar, dobro and mandolin), Dave Ward, (banjo and guitar), Ben Michelson (drums).

THE MYSTERY GIRLS [1983] Rock n' Roll With The Mystery Girls

Back in 1983, Mr. Ratboy was Brian Blade – the guitarist for The Mystery Girls, a Shangri-Las/Dolls/Modern Lovers-influenced combo whose only recorded legacy is a very rare acetate 33 RPM single, limited to only 5 copies with a xeroxed cover. The four tracks featured here are the far-superior demos recorded in Switzerland with a full band that included not only the future World Famous Mr. Ratboy, but also the enigmatic Zmotron, who went on to play in an early incarnation of The Dogs D’Amour under the name Mark Draxx. Download now, and be the first on your continent to hear these historical recordings.

DIRT SEARCH HEADLIGHT [1994] Year 2

Taking their name, as you do, from an old Hoover vacuum model, Dirt Search Headlight was formed circa 1992 following the demise of Philly’s Red Herring and Carnival of Shame. The band featured future Sour Jazz singer Mr. Popular (Lou Paris) and drummer Splat Action (Pat Fitzgerald), alongside guitarist Mark Telling and bass player Spencer Lloyd. These tracks were recorded circa 1994 by Kramer at Noise New Jersey. The band fell apart before anything was released, but the song “Australia” did end up as the theme of the very first X Games TV special on ESPN. Click HERE for live footage from 1993.

MR. RATBOY [1998] A Gift From Mr. Ratboy

"The debut solo effort from Mr. Ratboy (Sour Jazz, Pillbox, Motorcycle Boy, Marky Ramone...) is about as perfect a Rock N' Roll record as you are likely to find in such a mess of a decade. As Pillbox's sonic architect, Mr. Ratboy reveals himself capable of writing and playing more complicated and subtle music, delicate piano, feedback and acres of space to strange melodic choruses."  — Trouser Press

PILLBOX [1993] Jimbo’s Clown Room

Between Mr. Ratboy leaving Motorcycle Boy and joining Marky Ramone’s Intruders, there was the mighty Pillbox. Together with vocalist Chris Barry (ex- 222s & 39 Steps), bassist Johnny Baum, and Screamin’ Joe Rizzo on drums, Pillbox repeatedly proved to be a antidotal neighbourhood threat to D-Generation. Their first album ‘Jimbo’s Clown Room’ was released in 1993 on the Circumstantial label and became an instant classic amongst those who regarded it as an instant classic.

SOUR JAZZ [2013] Live On A Street Called Rock & Roll

Scraped loose from the furthest reaches of the vaults and dusted off for downloading, this live recording captures Sour Jazz in raw, savage and unholy form. Recorded live at the Continental in NYC on 8 March 2001, this previously unreleased set is guaranteed to wilt your houseplants and send the neighbours next door running fast for the far side of town. This is the sound of Sour Jazz laughing in the face of public humiliation – a curious yet effective melange of suave and slop. Noel Ford manned the board.

SOUR JAZZ [2011] Homage To Catatonia

In June 2010, SOUR JAZZ stumbled through a series of headlining gigs in Spain, touring in support of their album, 'American Seizure.'  For this tour, SOUR JAZZ were joined by very special guest, DANIEL REY, on guitar. Apart from producing the last two SOUR JAZZ albums -- 'Rock & Roll Ligger' and 'American Seizure' -- Daniel has previously played with and produced bands such as The Ramones, Ronnie Spector, Iggy Pop, Keith Richards, Richard Hell, The Misfits, Nashville Pussy and countless others. Never before had so much cunning talent shared one stage. Downright historical, that's what it was. One for the history books, one for bleary-eyed fans to look back upon with equal parts fondness and disbelief. Now, SOUR JAZZ invites you to enjoy a stunning array of mega-hits from their heroically glorious back catalogue -- songs of love, songs of despair, songs of filth and of tenderness and longing. Recorded live at Sala de Apolo in Barcelona on 16 June 2010, this official live release should do the job of seriously upsetting your neighbours.

SOUR JAZZ [2010] El Sótano Radio

Whilst spreading joy, mirth and tinnitus amongst the youth of Spain in the summer of 2010, Sour Jazz took time to appear on the El Sótano show on Radio 3 for National Spanish Radio, presented by Diego RJ. This hour-long live-to-air program featured music and interviews, and saw Sour Jazz joined by legendary producer Daniel Rey, who accompanied Sour Jazz on guitar for the tour.

SOUR JAZZ [2001] Dressed To The Left (2 Tracks)

These two fine stitches in rock's rich tapestry were originally recorded during the 'Lost For Life' album sessions, with the admirable (if slightly misguided) intention of eventually using them as b-sides of proposed singles which never happened. Instead, they were later made available on the now-out-of-print compilation, 'Dressed To The Left', via Munster Records out of Madrid. To this day, both tracks remain exclusive to that particular compilation, and have never been made available as digital downloads. Sometimes "rare" also means "not well done." Not in this case, it don't.

SOUR JAZZ

Lou Paris (Mr. Popular), Mark Rubenstein (Cowboy Mark), Gilbert Avondet (Mr. Ratboy), Pat Fitzgerald (Splat Action)


Sour Jazz is a New York rock band formed by four punk rock lifers down the lower East Side at the dog-end of the last century. Having logged time with legends like Marky Ramone, Cheetah Chrome and Ian Hunter among many others, these well-traveled veterans’ original goal was to simply play music as good as their heroes – the Saints, Radio Birdman, Lou Reed, Mott the Hoople and the Stooges – and ignore the whims and fashions of a music industry which was surely bound to ignore them in return.

They’d have been happy to be a footnote.

Taking their name from a misprint on a Beasts of Bourbon bootleg (namely a mash-up of their seminal Sour Mash and Axeman’s Jazz LPs), Sour Jazz embraced the folly and futility of a life in rock from the beginning. So after numerous recordings and live performances, three labels and a couple of managers, Sour Jazz somehow survives. It’s somewhat remarkable that the band is still here, the original lineup scattered around the world but still, miraculously, intact.

Sour Jazz is led by the world-famous Tokyo-based guitarist Mr. Ratboy, whose lean, incisive tone provides the perfect counterpart to scissor-legged singer Mr. Popular’s tales of urban sleaze. And of course, the combo’s heart beats to the rhythm of bassist Cowboy Mark and drummer Splat Action, together forming a singular engine room of V8 proportion.
