Such an honor to have our music in a retrospective of my favorite skateboard company of all time, BLACK LABEL! John Lucero is a true original and I've always respected what he's done for skateboarding and pop culture. Here's to 25 years of BLACK LABEL!

We recorded a pair of David Bowie covers (Space Oddity and Moonage Daydream) for 2007's "1.21 Jiggawatts" but never used them. The idea was simple, one cover for the LP, one cover for the CD. Life happened and that record never came out physically, only digitally. At that time, we decided to put these covers aside until the physical release. It's been 6 years, fuck it, lets share these tracks with the world. So here you go, I present to you a digital single called "Moonage Oddity." You can stream them for free on spotify here. If you're super neat-o and want to help us make MORE music, you can BUY these two tracks on itunes by clicking the album artwork. This ripping artwork was drawn by the ever so infamous Munguni!

SONG WRITER FOR HIRE:Lets start from where we last left off. I've been writing and recording a lot of music for TV shows for Dickhouse Productions and Viacom. Viacom had me write and record 15 punk/garage/surf instrumentals for them to use on all their shows and networks. In 4 days, I wrote, recorded and mixed them all in my home studio playing one instrument at a time. The songs have already appeared in re-runs of JACKASS and RIDICULOUSNESS. We were a featured band on one of the episodes and was featured on MTV.com. Here's our profile link
WE GOT SIGNED!Yes, we have signed a VINYL ONLY deal to SELF DESTRUCTO RECORDS (run by the Turbojugend) and have been so stoked working with them. This is in direct partnership with my label REACH AROUND. So it's a 50/50 vinyl release. Check out www.shopturbojugend.com and support their cause, buy some merch and stuff from all of the bands they work with, they're all great!
WE GOT A NEW ALBUM!"Primitive Sounds for a Modern World" is DONE! Mixed, mastered and sent off to the vinyl pressing plant. Recorded and mixed by Muller and Neil Young. Side A was recorded at Cup O' Pizza as a two piece (we didn't have a drummer yet, so I played drums/guitar/vox, Bobby played bass.) Side B has all three of us playing live on the Record Roundup with Oscar Hox on 89.7fm KFJC with Thor DSR on Drums. He kills it and it shows on the B side. We're stoked to have a live B side. You can stream it NOW on Spotify as well as purchase it on iTunes. If you're patient, you can get it on vinyl in a month or so and it includes a digital download.
WE'RE RECORDING AGAIN! ALREADY!Yes, you read that right. Ahhh, the benefits of Neil Young living a block away and me having a personal studio on site. This time we're recording two new songs for a split 7" with SELF DESTRUCTO UK label mates, THE HIP PRIESTS. So far we've tracked all the drums and bass tracks, tomorrow we track guitars, next week vocals, next next week mix. We're thinking about releasing a few songs every two months and at the end of the year, compile all the singles onto an LP. NEAT RIGHT?!? Right... We're also recording a track for a tribute comp for one of our favorite bands! I'm sure you can guess, but I'm not allowed to say anything yet. It's coming out RAD!
