Philly natives, Man Man take up the mantle this week with their off the wall track, Zebra from of their 2004 release The Man in a Blue Turban With a Face. A pretty cool aside here—this album is being re-released on vinyl exclusively for Record Store Day 2014 so that those of you with turntables can spit on anyone who listens to music on Youtube. Oh, wait… Have a great weekend y’all!
Louisville, KY trio Young Widows makes the PCF debut with Kerosine Girl off of Easy Pain (out May 13th) and what a debut! With it’s raw, loud, post-punk energy it seems perfectly suited fora black hole of a Friday night! Enjoy it tonight and if don’t worry if you forget having listened to it. That’s why you have Wheeeeeeee! bookmarked! Have a loud one y’all!
Crazy week around here at Internet HQ. We’re real sorry about that, bots. Please accept this Kurt Vile song that I’ve had on repeat for three weeks as our humble apology.
See y’all next week!
Get love buggin’ y’all!
This week’s PCF comes to us all the way from France because we’re feeling fancy today. Algomania’s track Dogs is a great example of 80′s euro punk and while I could go on I’d rather let youtube commenter liveon take it from here:
these guys rock they used to drink urine on stage.. i remember the one show i caught them at the lead singer pissed into a beer bottle than gave the crowd a great big cheers then downed the bottle in one shot then the guitarist busted out into a solo.
A quick note: I was going to link to liveon‘s youtube profile but when I tried I got this message: This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement.
So punk…Happy weekend everyone!
Our resident music connoisseur (can’t believe that’s how that’s spelled—total elimination word on the spelling bee circuit) Speck is back with this gem by Big Ups, titled Goes Black off of their 2013 release, Eighteen Hours of Static. As Speck points out, the Steve Albini comparison is hard to avoid and I mean that in the best of possible ways. Full disclosure: I haven’t heard the whole record yet, but that’s what the subway is for. Got this baby locked and loaded and ready to be used to drown out impromptu breakdancing troupes and loud chewers all the way home to county of Kings. Have a great weekend everyone!
Well, PCF veterans Perfect Pussy are back and I am pleased to announce that everything you loved about their demo tape titled, I have Lost All Desire for Feeling is present, only better if you can believe it. This is the first track Driver, off of their debut album titled Say Yes to Love (out March 18) and it will no doubt catapult this Syracuse 4-piece to the top of most playlists. Have a great Friday everyone and remember to keep those ears warm. This should help.
Today’s PCF titled Sugarcrush comes to us from Cardiff’s favorite 5-piecer, Joanna Gruesome. All I’m gonna say here is if you haven’t listened to their 2013 EP Weird Sister you’ll want to get on that. Consider it your homework this weekend. Please check back Monday to download the scantron quiz.
Three things have happened so far in 2014. Number one, I watched my first Rock and Roll Hall of Fame awards show, and boy was it entertaining. Number two, I was intrigued by the induction of Albert King. And number three, I began listening to Albert King. (Number four my head exploded, but three is such a better number)
This guy IS Power Chord Fridays.
Have a mind-blowing, String-bending weekend, everybody!
In 1979, a year prior to winning their first Stanley Cup the New York Islanders released this record of Christmas standards for their fans. So sit back and listen to the Isles light the lamp and enjoy the musical stylings of Billy Smith who proved to have stellar pipes in addition to being stellar between them. Ok, that’s all the hockey jargin I could mutster. Happy holidays champ!
Note: Just fast forward past the skipping at around the 17 minute mark. You may or may not be sorry.
This week’s submission comes to us from the desk of Wheeeeeeee’s lo-fi-phile Speck. Today we offer you San Diego’s favorite sons, Crocodiles and their track Sunday off of their 2012 release Endless Flowers. The bleary guitars pair nicely with this damp, cold Friday. Chin up though, sounds like snow’s coming soon! Have a great weekend everyone.
Want to get an up close look at these fellas? Come the Arlene’s Grocery tonight at 7pm. This can be our first official Wheeeeeeee meet up! Dan and I will be the ones sipping rail whiskey trying to steady ourselves on our stools as the band plays on.
