OK SO!!! retox tonight!!!
6-8 PM pacific time

the cramps were one of the most influential bands that emerged out of the early new york punk scene. they coined the term 'psychobilly,' though they did not think of themselves as psychobilly. we owe an incredible amount to them. the alternative music scene would have been a very bright and unsexy place without them.

i will play lots of songs about cars, going to hell, being naughty, bad-ass chicks, and drinking.

so come tip a cold one back with me as i take you through two hours of low-down, rowdy, ass-whompin' music in tribute to the mad mad daddy.

attn: portland venues and bands!

i'd love to play local bands on my show, however, i play psychobilly and punk based genres so forget it if you are an indie band, sorry.

please help me track bands down and get info on when they are doing shows so i can announce on retox radio http://www.praradio.com/mainpage.htm fridays 6-8 PM.

we are in the process of changing web sites, so this will be in effect next week and for now the time slot lists the show that left, but i am doing my show at that time.

this is a brand new show and i really want to help promote what is going on with local bands and venues.
i will have live interviews as well, providing ya'll wanna do them!

our studios are currently downtown portland but will be moving to broadway and weidler in the next month or so, sharing a space with a brewery and other local artist shops and such. that, obviously, will kick ass.

also please feel free to contact me with what you might like to hear on this show, regardless of where you live.

Download HIDEOUS SEXY for free!

Yet another pointless covers album from Mary Shelley Overdrive — available for FREE download. Blue Oyster Cult! Devo! Antiseen! The White Stripes! Listen to MSO mutilate your favorite songs and then have sex with the remains.


Here's what Free Albums Galore said about the album:
"Mary Shelley Overdrive has all the attitude expected from a hardcore metal/post-punk group. From the name to the high velocity music to the gloriously exploitative artwork on their new free and legal EP, this is a band that is not afraid to look you straight in the face and sneer.

"Their EP, Hideous Sexy, is a short 15 minutes album of cover tunes ranging from Bo Diddley to The White Stripes. There are also some nice versions of songs by Black Flag, Devo, The Vaselines and others. Some of the better tracks include The Vaselines’ “Molly’s Lips”, Blue Oyster Cult’s “This Ain’t The Summer of Love” and Black Flag’s “Wasted. However the real stunner is “Who Do You Love” in which the band manages to take the blues rocker by the late great Bo Diddley and turn it into a Gothic nightmare. This is a neat brief EP of cover songs that will please your inner punk."

Anyone in Florida going to the Misfits show November 23rd at the State Theater? If you are, do you know who's playing with them? I saw that they were on tour with Agent Orange and someone else, but there are no listings for who is playing that night.....

U.K. Subs plus Sad Society at The Citrus Club, Edinburgh, on 5th December

Sad Society are pleased to announce that we'll be supporting the U.K. Subs, featuring their classic line-up of Charlie Harper, Nicky Garratt, Paul Slack & Pete Davies, at The Citrus Club, Grindlay Street (opposite the Lyceum theatre), Edinburgh, on Wednesday, 5th of December. We wouldn't have missed this gig even if we hadn't been playing it ourselves, and we're sure you won't want to either. Tickets are £10 from Ripping Records, there are £1.50 drinks-promos, and the gig starts at 7pm, so make a date and don't be late!

Sad Society & Billy Liar at Bannerman's, Edinburgh, on 28th November

Punk Off is on the 28th November at Bannerman's pub, 212 Cowgate, Edinburgh. There will be two bands on; Sad Society: "Where the fuck did these guys come from? They produce ultra-confident, addictive, anthemic punk rock, brought to us with that distinctly Scottish disregard for subtleties or arse-licking"; and Billy Liar: "The vicious, spiked belligerence of The Pistols in full copulating deviancy with the gentler, deep thinking soul of The Cure's acoustic manhandler Robert Smith." It is £4 on the door or £3 for Edgar members. All proceeds go to Shelter Scotland. Come along to support the local music scene, or to support Edgar, or Shelter or just because you like beer. It will be fun!

And a wee reminder: Sad Society are playing in Glasgow on the 25th.

Sad Society at The Capitol, Glasgow, on Sunday, 25th November

Sad Society are pleased to announce that the Glasgow Gig Collective are putting us on at The Capitol, 468, Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, on Sunday, 25th of November. We are reliably informed that The Capitol is an excellent venue (it's just along the road from The Garage and Nice'N'Sleazy) and that the monthly punk gigs there are always heaving. As it's been quite a while since Sad Society have played in Glasgow and this will be the first gig we've played there with the new line-up, it'll be a good opportunity for Clydesiders to come and check us out. The gig starts at 7:30pm and admission is £5. Don't miss it!

Sad Society now have a band-profile at PunkRockers.com. Feel free to sign up for an account and add us to your friends-list!

Sad Society at Henry's Cellar Bar, Edinburgh, Saturday, 20th October
Due to circumstances beyond our control, Sad Society's previously-arranged gigs in Edinburgh at Bannerman's on the 12th of October and The 3 Tuns on the 19th have had to be cancelled, but we're pleased to announce that we'll be playing at Henry's Cellar Bar, 8, Morrison Street, on Saturday 20th. Our last gig there was a stormer thanks to the enthusiasm and energy of the crowd who got right into the spirit of the occasion, and our next gig promises to be no less pogotastic! We'll be supported by Johnny Thunders tribute-band Chinese Jocks, admission will be £4 and the gig will start at 7:30pm, so don't be late!

We hope to be able to announce more forthcoming gigs shortly; watch this space!
