THE FREAKS OF NATURE
"Songs For Savages" LP
Welcome to the insane world of America's newest fuzz-punk sensation, THE FREAKS OF NATURE!!!
Do you remember the music of the 60's? Neither do we. Come check out their explosive brand of proto punk ka-pow! Then go tell all the hippie zombies there was more to 60's music than a big wet fart called Woodstock.
Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona the FREAKS OF NATURE were formed way back in 2012 before the world ended, just for the fun of it.
As the band's charismatic front man, Daniel applies his arsenal of exuberant vocal antics as well as guitar and harmonica playing. Inspired by his love for wild sixties garage punk, his song writing perfectly captures all the angst of teen oppression.
Steve has a sordid history of guitar abuse leaning heavily toward 60's garage mayhem. Once he even cleaned Bob Welsh's carpet! He also has been known to build fuzz and distortion boxes when the mood strikes him.
James has more musical talent in his pinkie than most record stores have in their entire inventory. Although he can play any instrument he wants, his profound bass lines have been known to make hard core jazzbo's weep with joy.
David's musical resume reads like a history of Phoenix's punk rock royalty. His aggressive drum style has been described as "Gene Krupa with brass knuckles". His all around cheerful sense of sarcastic humor make him the perfect timekeeper for The Freaks Of Nature.
Within mere moments of forming, the buzz on the street was that these guys played some amazingly savage classic garage punk and roll. With all the swagger of a three legged dog, the boys have left a trail of throbbing insoles, confused grins and blown minds from one side of Phoenix to the other. Come to a Freak's gig and see for yourself what all the noise is about!
Mixing the original "Back From the Grave" sound of bands like THE ALARM CLOCKS, THE TAMRONS, THE HUMANS and THE ILLUSIONS with the snotty mid-eighties teen-beat brilliance of bands like the TELL TALE HEARTS, THE GRAVEDIGGER V and THE PANDORAS, THE FREAKS OF NATURE open the next chapter in the yet unfinished bible of FUZZZZZZ !!!

"Button By Button" LP
The very name alone is enough to send legions of teenagers the world over into paroxysms of joy!!!! COZY are four young men who have captured the hearts of fans across the globe with their movie star looks, boyish charm, dapper denim outfits, and a stage show that is truly out of this world!!!! Just ask any of their innumerable female devotees and they will tell you COZY are the hottest band in the land in every possible sense of the word!!!! Every teenager who knows anything about anything knows all of their names and vest sizes by heart, but for those who have been living under a rock for the past two years here is your chance to get acquainted with the fastest rising stars in showbiz today!!!
First there is the superlatively talented BONKERS WADDINGTON on vocals!!!! BONKERS is 6’1” and 180 pounds of pure charisma and sex appeal!!! His fanclub alone counts more members than the entire population of the countries of Belarus, Togo, and Albania COMBINED!!!! Second but no less sexy is COZY’S ace guitarist BAZ BOSWORTHY!!!! In addition to being a fearsome fretboard wizard BAZ is the most stylish member of COZY!!!! Tastemakers have been known to keep an avid eye one what BAZ is wearing only to have it eventually show up on runways in London, Paris, and Milan!!!! Next we come to the man who many fans consider the dreamiest member of COZY: GORDIE LEATHERBY!!! GORDIE is a true rocker who puts his heart and soul into playing the bass!!! His top priority is making sure every fan who buys a ticket to a COZY concert gets their money’s worth!!!! Last but by no means least COZY’s not so secret weapon FABIAN BLOCKBUSTER rounds out the group!!!! While gossip may be circulating that he can get a bit wild in his personal life, we can assure you there is no truth to these malicious rumors!!! The only thing wild about FABIAN is the frenzied reaction his powerhouse drumming provokes in audiences when COZY performs live!!!!
Now these four young superstars have joined forces with SCREAMING APPLE RECORDS to release their debut album "Button By Button". These ten raucous anthems bring the roof down whenever COZY performs live and it is a sure bet that the album will soon set the charts ablaze like wildfire!!!! Already SCREAMING APPLE RECORDS and COZY’S management Razzle Dazzle Ltd have received cease and desist orders from the American Dental Association begging them not to unleash this cavity causing concoction upon the record buying public, but have no fear!!! COZY believes in always giving the people what they want!!!! And what hordes of frantic fans across the world are clamoring for is MORE COZY!!!!
With more records and live appearances in the works, the ink still drying on innumerable merchandising deals, and a pilot being shot for the upcoming “COZY VARIETY HOUR” as we speak, the phenomenon known from sea to shining sea as COZY MANIA is only getting started!!!!

THE DEL SHAPIROS
"Sangre Con Tomate"
THE DEL SHAPIROS hail from Sevilla, Spain and deliver the latest MUST-HAVE record from SCREAMING APPLE. As you probably know, every record from SCREAMING APPLE is A-1 dynamite and this DEL SHAPIROS LP "Sangre Con Tomate" is no exception.
Do you… appreciate the more tuneful end of the R&B spectrum? This record is for you!
…dig the rougher side of straight-up Beat? This record is for you!
…fancy a record that gets yer toes a-tappin’ and yer shoulders a-twitchin’? This record is for you!
THE DEL SHAPIROS have packed 11 great original tunes into this here platter. And by "tunes" I ain’t kidding – these are some of the finest original R&Beat numbers to float through my Whig in quite a while! Armed with these great originals, the boys packed up the van and headed to Gijon to record at the esteemed Estudios Circo Perrotti where, with the brilliant assistance of Jorge Explosion’s keen ears and highly skilled nob-twiddlin’ (girls, take note!), they hunkered down to create this here migh-tee fine platter.
If you like THE KAISERS, THE KINKS and THE MILKSHAKES (and who doesn’t???...Seriously, who doesn’t?...cuz them might be fightin’ words, bub!), then you definitely NEED this record! THE DELS somehow manage to walk that same tightrope of precision playing while maintaining a sense of abandon and the results are thrilling and exciting!
I also hear similarities to LOS SHAKERS, LOS MOCKERS and other top flight Spanish beat groups. The boys’ older brothers acknowledge the new breed with guest appearances by Russ Wilkens (MILKSHAKES) and Esteban Hirschfild (LOS MOCKERS), which is an honor any combo would be proud of.
So, whattaya waitin’ for? This footlong blastable is both FUN and SMART and will be a welcome addition to yer next rug-cuttin’ affair!
