On my recent visit to L.A. I got this killer slab of wax from my friend Eric Big Arm who is the lead singer of the band. Probably the best thing I heard in ages – simple pure good ol’ punk rock the way I like it! Hell Yeah! Grateful that there are still bands around who know how to do it! Both the debut album and this 7″ are self released on Eric’s Big Arm Recordings. Enjoy!
Digging through my files found this cool poster my friend Bone, who is an amazing illustrator and DJ as well as The Anomalys frontman, made for my old photo website Garage Savage and my alter ego at the time, Savage Lady. Good times!
Check out his cool stuff:

Actually New Zealand-French-German connection – these three lovely young ladies play melodic lo fi garage psych tunes. Formed late summer 2013, already recorded a demo and played lots of shows in Berlin. I caught up with them on 01 Feb at the Auster Club, at The Anna Thompsons record release party.
If in Berlin on 01 March check them out at Kastanienkeller (together with Berlin punks Fluffers!). Should be fun!!
Being back to Berlin is just great, and as always so much to do and so many bands to catch up with. Very pleased to have finally seen The About: Blanks in action couple of weeks ago!! Fun and highly entertaining show at the usual bizarre dinning set up of White Trash restaurant. These Berlin based punks will be releasing their second album soon, also on P. Trash Records, so stay tuned!!!
