The Only Things – “Hit List”

The Only Things – “Hit List”

The Only Things – “Hit List”   I saw The Replacements, along with Andy, at The Rat back in the early eighties. I state this because I’ve seen people’s jaws drop when I mention that. For us it was just another weekend show at The Rat. [Read More]

Uncle Spudd – “Meat The Robinson”

Uncle Spudd – “Meat The Robinson”

Uncle Spudd – “Meat The Robinson”   Uncle Spudd is a hardcore/punk trio from the wilds of Skohegan, Maine. And though we profess to cover New England, New York punk, metal and hardcore (along with the occasional goth/country band) we have scant few [Read More]

Los Bungalitos – “Quick and Dirty”

Los Bungalitos – “Quick and Dirty”

Los Bungalitos – “Quick and Dirty”   There are bands you want to cover, that are always in the stack and you just don’t get around to it. In TNB’s early days, we wouldn’t even review a band’s recorded work until we saw them [Read More]

Ellen and the Degenerates – “Ellen and the Degenerates”

Ellen and the Degenerates – “Ellen and the Degenerates”

Ellen and the Degenerates – “Ellen and the Degenerates”   Ellen and the Degenerates are a band I stumbled upon, probably walking home drunk, late at night, passed out in an alley, awakening to find a cassette in my hand. They’re from Brooklyn, [Read More]

Negative Nixon – “No Lives Matter”

Negative Nixon – “No Lives Matter”

Negative Nixon – “No Lives Matter”   Negative Nixon is the name of this band and what an odd name is that? I can’t think of anything negative to say about the former President Richard Milhous Nixon, (what a cool middle name!) as I lived thought [Read More]

Rictus Grin – “Pity Crew EP”

Rictus Grin – “Pity Crew EP”

Rictus Grin – “Pity Crew EP”   Rictus Grin is kinda like stealing a car and driving it to an amusement park where it gets caught in some kind of go-cart race, then gets sideswiped and totaled, while inflatable sex dolls emerge, instead of air bags, [Read More]

Distressor – “Hard To Kill”

Distressor – “Hard To Kill”

Distressor – “Hard To Kill”   You know, I was always warned about the “L” towns. The three suburban towns out of Boston, ones you had to “watch your step in.” I lived most of my early life in Hyde Park and Dorchester, so anyone [Read More]

CAC – “Pissin with…”

CAC – “Pissin with…”

CAC – “Pissin with…”   CAC or C.A.C. is a new band, that stands for Christians Against Christianity or really, Crime Alley Cretins. It’s a new band to me and probably to you, as well. I just heard this recording two weeks ago and saw them [Read More]

The Only Things – “The Only Things”

The Only Things – “The Only Things”

The Only Things – “The Only Things”   The only things I need are beer, Mexican food and punk rock. The Only things are a rock’n’roll band from Lowell, MA The only things you really need to know about them is they have really great songs [Read More]

HailNothing – “Ancient Tombs”

HailNothing – “Ancient Tombs”

HailNothing – “Ancient Tombs”   I love Chuck Berry. He recently died at 90, doing 90 motivating over the hill. He has a song called “School Days” that has the lyrics, “Hail, Hail Rock’N’Roll. The feeling’s there [Read More]
