Big Drill Car - A Never-Ending Endeavor

Sorry about the late posts, I’m so busy lately. But I will make it a point to post something worthwhile in this little blog of mine. I actually uploaded a lot in Mediafire but I haven’t got the time to post them.

First up is Big Drill Car’s compilation of rarities, alternate takes, covers and compilation tracks and 5 new recordings, A Never Ending Endeavor. I have to admit I’m a newbie to this band. I first heard them way after their disbandment. They played pop punk predating your Green Days and your Offsprings. Though their sound is a bit polished for may taste, they still manage to get my attention due to the strength of their songs. Standout tracks include The Other, What You Believe and the title track of their last studio album No Worse for the Wear. Their cover of Celebrated Summer and Buzzcocks’ I Don’t Mind are kick-ass but I can’t understand why Billy Joel’s Big Shot?

Anyways, I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Hard-Ons - Best of...

Along with AC/DC, this is the best Australian band ever! I can’t thank enough my friend who bought me this CD while she was in Australia. The Hard-Ons music is reminiscent of the pop sensibilities of both the Ramones and the Buzzcocks and plus the brashness of Motorhead and throw in some toilet humor for good measure. Their mixture of pop punk, hardcore, metal and psychedelia sets these guys apart.
