Nature Boys - Nature Boys 2nd LP

Sigh. I saw Nature Boys last saturday....please take me back. Oh gawd, it was such a bad-ass show. Nature boy's is a 3-piece punk band from, you guessed it, KC, MO.
(I've seen NB's a few times and snagged this LP...well, actually two copies of it haha.) It's that dam good guys.
I also wanted to share some fotos I took from the show! 

Check it out here:

It doesn't look like you can purchase it from their website, but i'm sure if you shoot them an e-mail or something they could figure out a way to send ya a copy.
Here is the website: Nature Boys

Trauma Harness - Dead And Loving It EP

The band describes themselves as "gloomy vibes from st. louis/belleville. catching you with a death bag"... which I think is pretty accurate.

Animals & Men - To Live And Die In The West Country

Reunited and it feels so good. I think they played a handful of gigs last year or the year before (can't remember) But, Susan Wells is the shit! Home girl still got it goin' on. If you're not familiar with A & M, they formed in the uk around the 70s and went on to play up until the 80s. A & M were inspired by bands like pere ubu and fucking rad-ass garage-punk bands from the 60s, thus using that inspiration and creating a sound of their own.
(I also remember reading this article about them or it was an interview with them, i can't remember... and they referred to roky erickson (13th floor) and how they wanted to write/release a single that was just as hopes to change music history the way they had. I thought that was pretty interesting)
Anywho, A & M rawks.

Bacon Fudge - Jaybirds K

On repeat, repeat, repeat. So, because this cassette kicks so much ass, I ended up buying two copies. One of which is for muah, and the other I want to give to one of y'all. Because...sharing is caring...and I can't help but want to share the brilliance of what is Bacon Fudge. Paris' best grunge-punk (grunk) act 'round.
So game plan: all you have to do is listen to this album in it's entirety (you'll probably end up listening to it like 218 times, cause it's that damn amazing) and send me an explanation of which song get's ya groovin' in ya boots the most. You can either send your entry to my Tumblr blog, or the Punk Gunk blog e-mail: (preferred). I will then choose a submission by random and that person will get their very own copy of Jaybirds K by Bacon Fudge released by Kebab Records. I will choose the winner on January 30th.
No need to reblog or even like it...just turn this shiz up, lay on yo cans, and tune in.
