Band name:
OUR ACTUAL NAME IS UNPRONOUNCABLE IN YOUR EARTHEN LANGUAGES (DUE TO YOUR LACK OF TONGUES); HOWEVER IT ROUGHLY TRANSLATES TO “THE PEANUTS.”

Date & location formed:
WE WERE FORMED IN DIMENSION C-37X ROUGHLY 17 FLIM FLAMS AGO. I BELIEVE THIS WORKS OUT TO BE ABOUT JANUARY OF 2016.

Reason for forming:
WE ORIGINALLY FORMED AS A ROYAL BATTALION TO FEND OUR HOMEWORLD FROM INVADING SPACEWORMS, BUT SOON FOUND THAT A SONIC OFFENSE WAS A MORE VIABLE OPTION.

What are your lyrics about?
LYRICS? DO YOU MEAN OUR VERBALISED ATOMIC RAYS? THOSE JUST KIND OF SOUND LIKE NASALLY FARTS.

How would you describe your sound?
THE CRIES OF 1000 SUNS LISTENING TO “TIME OUT FOR FUN” BY DEVO AT ONCE.

What’s in the future for this band?
OUR FUTURE IS ALREADY IN THE PAST, AS WELL AS THE PRESENT. TIME IS A HUMAN MADE CONSTRUCT WHICH WE FIND LAUGHABLE.

etc band logoBand name:
ETC. or Etecétera (the name came from a Kurt Vonnegut reference that says that ETC. means “sameness without end” and that’s how our lifes feel.

Date & location formed:
We formed around March, this year. It all started at a small room at the top of Rodrigo’s house (Mexico City), with just a guitar, its amp and a small drum kit.

Reason for forming:
While I was doing some different things with Olvido, Rodrigo and I decided to make a band; something that we always dreamed since junior high. So, yeah… a lot of years went by and we made these five songs in about a week. It took time to record em, ’cause we didn’t (and still) had the money to properly record em, so I borrowed a Tascam DR-07 and started to record instrument by instrument with Rodrigo; It was so hard, I’ve never done something like that before. Then I mixed em with ProTools and tried to make em less shitty. Finally, we decided to record Operación Ser Humano by Los Baraja, cause we love that fucking song.

What are your lyrics about?
Our lyrics are about a couple of things; from “being a huge and untouchable douchebag in the punk scene,” to a history of injustice in the Mexican penitentiary system. But, those are just the first two songs, the rest of the songs are a lot about my anxiety and depression that’s fucking with me every single day.

How would you describe your sound?
I dunno. I would like to say punk for anxious and angry people. That’s why the quality of it sucks!

What’s in the future for this band?
Well, maybe make a real ‘band’ (not just the two of us), start playing shows, make some tapes, and that stuff. If all of that never happens, we’re still making some new songs that will come out later this year.

Band name:
SPICE BOYS

Date & location formed:
Spice city Umeå 2016.

Reason for forming:
We just needed the money you know. I had gone into business with the wrong people to pay off my loans and bills and stuff because, come on, work sucks. Now these people needed their money back and I had just spent it all so I was in a bit of a predicament so to speak. I saw this add that a local pub needed a cover band and the money was pretty good so I called up some friends and we formed the band. We were rehearsing songs like brown eyed girl, hotel california and that kind of crap but when we were supposed to play our first gig we all got so high and drunk the songs sounded more like a drug induced psychosis than anything else. Anyhow people kinda seemed to like it so we stuck to that concept and now we’re big shots. Real high rollers baby.

What are your lyrics about?
Its mostly mumbo jumbo and total nonsense but once in a while we sing about more serious subjects like pizza flavored kisses and being a real high roller.

How would you describe your sound?
A cover band trying to play ”Boys are back in town” during a drug induced psychosis.

What’s in the future for this band?
Were playing a show in London on the 1st of October at the SLIME BALL at old blue last with fellow labelmates. Also our debut full length album ”GLADE” will be released on PNKSLM recordings next spring.

power-face-band-logo

Band name:
POWER FACE

Date & location formed:
January 2015, Stockholm.

Reason for forming:
To bring the thunder of hard rock to the lightning of hard core. No but seriously, Leo (drums) and Jerka (guitar) had written a batch of songs for their old band that weren’t going to be used and they figured they’d start a new band in the style of those new songs. So they invited me (Oskar (vocals)) and Adam (bass) knowing that we shared their love for hardcore and rock n roll and after that things came pretty natural.

What are your lyrics about?
Mostly going to shows, partying, fucking and dealing with anxiety. And the pains and pleasures of living in Stockholm.

How would you describe your sound?
Hardcore punk with a healthy dose of rock n roll.

What’s in the future for this band?
Adam just recently became a father so things have been moving kind of slow the last couple of months, but we’ll soon be recording a new 7’’ and then hopefully we’ll start writing more new songs and do some touring as well.
