Heavily influenced by the "kinder" British Oi! The band is a bit to pop for me and even if the band is better musically then most other bands its just not my thing. The song R. A fast and catchy tune that stands apart from the rest of the EP. The choice Introduction.
A band from Los Angeles that was active in The band released one 7'' and a full-length album through british label Helen of Oi! Band consisted of Smitty on vocals also played bass in Prop 13 at the same time , Miguel on bass, Mike Snow on guitar and last but not least "Screwy Louie" on drums. In Tim from minor Brapp records found out about these guys and helped them release an EP in would later be re-released by Helen of Oi!
Later that same year they released their first and only LP called Sunday soccer that was a massive succes in punk in UK.

After the breakup many most of the members went on to bigger and some smaller things. Smitty continued on to play with his other band Prop 13 great band by the way and later played bass and vocals in punkband Crisis point.
Miguel went on to play bass with the punkrock band The bombshells still active today. Screwy now plays drums in the Disgustingtons and Mike went on to play in The generators. Go there and get the real thing and support the artists. Weekend bowlers - What are we gonna do about this? Feminazi Break it up Drinkin with the boys We'll still be here Too deep Strut I know who my friends are Answers Carried away Brown paper bag The bruisers cover Drinkin with the boys Live Thin line Live Released by Haunted town records in Damn this is a great record!!!!!
A bit more melody on this record and hell of more Bruisers influences this time around. This is yet another punkalbum that i cant understand why it never broke through its underground fan-base. The "hitpotential" on songs like I know who my friends are and We'll still be here are the kind that makes you question what the fuck the musicindustry is shooting up its arms. Give those fuckfaces a shovel so they can digg up some truly great bands for a change. Personal favourite is the scene oriented song Break it up.
If it is brutal and violent Oi! Stick shift What's it all about? We've been had Thin line Released by Cyclone records in Talk about having a missinformational bandname. A weekend bowler is someone that does something like an amateur without having a clue what he is doing and this band is deffinetly no weekend bowler.
Think a mix of the Ducky boys, The bruisers and Bonecrusher and you come close to what these guys sound like. One of the most dedicated vocalists i have even heard and a talanted band to back that up. I dont know much about this band and it really ticks me off since i want to know what happened to the members after the bands demise.
The 7'' come with a great foldout cover in hardpaper that contains all lyrics nowdays most bands just throw the vinyl in there and writes the bandmembers on the sleeve. Three first songs are the best and its all originality the whole record through even if Stick shift reminds me of an old Blitz track at some points hehe If you have any info of the band please mail me or comment.
Etiketter: Weekend bowlers. Weekend bowlers introduction. Great band from New York that was formed around and was first featured with 2 tracks on Cyclone records compilation CD from called Pure Punk. Later on Al startedplaying guitar for the band and Tom Keller started playing bass instead.
They where only around the scene for a short time but released a 7'' in and a full-lenght in Vanguard - Hard road to travel What we bleed Brand new boots On the run Glory United PLC Power, corruption, lies We are Vanguard Patriot action Working man Fencewalker The horoor show Culture war Fuck the blues Fight to win Released by Dim records in Gotta love Dim records for releasing another great American band.
Dont understand why many US bands have to send their demos oversees to get their stuff released. This time the band has expanded and picked up many of ATF 's old members to fill the ranks. This made a more complete sound and even if many songs lack the quality that they had on their first release the album is smacked full of great song both lyrically and musically. Best tracks are Fence walker, Brand new boots, Fight to win and the anthem We are vanguard exlaining ones and for all " We're not sharps and we're not racists ".

In came a friend of mine from high school with an offer to put out the 7 song cassette "Independence Day" on his label that he called Nirvana Records this was pre-Nirvana the band made it and had nothing to do with them.
He put that 7 song cassette out, and a year later when we were ready to do the "American Night" single the band Nirvana had made it big and he didn't want the confusion so he changed the label's name to "Sonic Aggression". In when we were ready to release our 1st cd he changed the name AGAIN to Primitive Records and Cruisin' for a Bruisin' was released on cd and cassette under that label name, but all three labels were the same guy.
The Punks were an American proto-punk band from Waterford , Michigan near Detroit, who were active from They specialized in a hard-driving, sometimes thrashing sound that anticipated much mid-to-late s punk rock and s hardcore. The group came out of the last vestiges of the Detroit rock scene that produced bands such as MC5 , Iggy and the Stooges , and Death , and with these acts they formed a musical bridge between the garage rock bands of the s and the later punk movement that emerged in New York and London during the mids.
In they changed their name to the End and moved to New York with hopes of making their mark in the burgeoning punk rock scene there, but were unsuccessful, and broke up shortly thereafter.
Though relatively unknown outside of Detroit and New York in their day, they have more recently garnered the interest and accolades of underground rock enthusiasts who consider them to be pioneers in the prototypical development of punk rock.
The Punks formed in Waterford, Michigan, outside of Detroit in The group made use of occasional costumes and theatrics customary of the glam rock trends of the time. Nick Wymer. In Britain.

Epic, In , American record execs were still too busy snorting lines off the Hotel California gatefold to notice a cultural shift was imminent.
Epic initially deemed The Clash 's lo-fi production and Anglo-centric politics unfit for American consumption and refused to release it stateside. Of course, they were right. Record buyers scarfing up disco and Debbie Boone records would have been stymied by tracks like "White Riot," "London's Burning" and other snapshots of pre-Thatcher England.
The album's essential vitality struck a chord with some, however, and it became the biggest-selling import ever, eventually seeing U. And it's still the quintessential punk album. Johnny Rotten howls like a demonic leprechaun over Steve Jones' tidal wave of distorted guitars, viciously hocking diseased wads of phlegm into the eyes of the royal family and other worthy targets.
Pepper innocence, the Ramones pillaged the sounds of their childhood surf music, girl groups and British Invasion pop and distilled rock down to its three-chord essence while celebrating their own twisted culture in tracks about huffing, horror movies and hustling.
In a perfect world, the album would have cut a swath through the treacle of the American Top 40, but instead it merely sparked an underground revolution, shaping the sound of punk and the attitude of all alternative music to come. Skip to main content.
Ramones, Big Black — 'Songs About Fucking' Touch and Go, About as comfortable as an unanesthetized root canal, Big Black's second album capped a four-year career that proved punk needn't be straightforward to be strong.
