Dirty Kirst are a punk rock band from St. Neots. That’s a soul destroying little town outside of Cambridge, UK. They play positive songs about life; drinking, politics, addiction, death, friends and all that good stuff.
In 2005 they self recorded, produced and released their first album, “I’m not asking, i’m telling!!” to rave reviews from the press and went on to score a loyal and much loved fan base.
Regular gigs with other great bands from the scene, large and small (H20, Flatliners, Freak Union, Deadline) fine tuned their sound and their debut single “Doesn’t make you punk” stirred the masses, paving the way for the long awaited second album, "Absence Makes The Music Faster".
Returning with a more polished sound, greater musicianship and deeply introspective lyrics - a mere seven years are their debut offering - Dirty Kirst prove that Punk Rock is still alive in the hearts of those who care.

NOFX - Xmas Has Been X'ed / New Year's Revolution (2012)

1. Xmas Has Been X’ed
2. New Year’s Revolution
3. Wore Out the Soles of My Party Boots

Download: Zippyshare
File Size: 16 MB
Genre: Punk rock / melodic hardcore
Quality: 320 kbps
Release date: 15 January 2013
Label: Fat Wreck Chords

Xmas may have been X’ed back in September when 'Self Entitled' dropped, but given that this is the last Christmas, we thought we should spoil you with one last NOFX limited edition vinyl release. It’s the third single of the year from NOFX, and a double A-side at that: Xmas Has Been X’ed / New Year’s Revolution. The A-side is classic NOFX, a true punk rock Christmas anthem to be filed right next to Fear’s Fuck Christmas. And in typical NOFX fashion, it’s a Christmas story wherein the Jews come out on top. Shocker. Now flip the record over to the AA-side and you’ve got your “New Year’s Revolution,” an outtake from the Self Entitled sessions, followed by a new recording of the much-loved but overlooked gem “Wore out the Soles of My Party Boots.”

Interview with Jay Bentley from Bad Religion

Californian punk legends Bad Religion are gearing up for the release of their sixteenth album 'True North', out January 25th through Epitaph Records. The album sees the band return to their “original mission statement of short concise bursts of melody and thought.”

Q: So, how did you find the recording process of ‘True North,’ having put constraints on the album?
A: I actually think the recording process was probably the best of all of them. We really aimed to record short, fast, concise and stripped down punk songs. We didn’t really have the need to overthink and so we could focus on other things – the delivery and the conveying feeling of the tracks. I also think Joe Barresi (producer – The Dissent of Man, Pennywise, Queens of the Stone Age) had really gotten comfortable at the helm. We recorded on tape this time round, and I think that turned out really well.

From their facebook:

“So you’ve heard 2 of the 13 songs on the record, we are really proud of this one and we think you guys are going to enjoy it! Being a 100% DIY band means it takes more time and effort to get things done, but in the end, you can hear the pride/passion that is put into every aspect of the record. It is truly 100% Asado. With that being said, we really do appreciate you being patient with us and we will be realeasing more songs as we approach the release. Any labels/distro who like what they hear and want to help spread the noise shoot us a message! lets dance!”

New Bad Religion song: 'True North'


Listen below 'True North' by Bad Religion from the new album 'True North,' out January 22nd!

Click here to listen to the song

Unrepentant vagabond
Plot the new coordinates and cast the map aside
Now I gotta ramble on
Navigate the pitfalls and cross the great divide

The mapmaker's legend gave direction and a key
He set the declination but what good is it to me?

I can't see the rationality
The world's not my responsibility
And happiness isn't there for me
But maybe I'll inch closer to the source
When I find true north
(with or without a friend. Keep searching 'til the end.)

Tempting fate and cheating death
No one ever told me it was going to be like this
Contemplate the randomness
When the mind is willing it gets downright perilous

Overburdened, underwhelmed, their ethical decree
That's your moral compass but what good is it to me?

I can't see the rationality
The world's not my responsibility
And happiness isn't there for me
But maybe I'll inch closer to the source
When I find true north
(with or without a friend. Keep searching 'til the end).
When I find true north.

Utopia Now started out as a band in late 2006 but had been around in a different form (but with the same singer and songwriter) under the name Indigo since 2002, sharing the stage with bands such as Lagwagon, Anti Flag, A Wilhelm Scream, No Trigger, Good Clean Fun, Venerea and many more. However, despite a promising start the band was short-lived and split in 2007. Today the band lives on in the form of an online solo project by the band’s founder, singer, and songwriter, Stephan Serowy. The music is distributed for free and can be found all over the internet (and via the download links on this page)
"Besides" is a collection of previously unreleased songs that never quite made it past the demo stage and were, for one reason or another, dropped by the bands the singer had written them for. Most of these songs were written and recorded at least 8 years ago, some are even older.
With the exception of the drums, all these recordings are the original recordings made at the time.

Passage 4 old videos

Passage 4 was a skate punk from Arboga, Sweden, which existed from 1991 until 1997. Nowadays the band is credited for being one of the first skatepunk bands to incorporate elements of emo/indie rock in their music.
Recently someone uploaded two videoclips for the songs Team (off 'Something To Start With') and Human Doll (off 'World Circus').
This is the story about the videos (taken from YouTube comments).

We (friends/fans from Arboga and band members) had a discussion over at Facebook a year ago or so, when the bass player Carla said he had the 2 videos on VHS tape somewhere, but no way to get it over to the Computer, so I offered to do just that. Well, 2 days ago he contacted me and said he finally had found the tape, so I went and picked it up at his Tattoo Studio here in town(Arboga).
