HELLO WORLD

DREAMS DON’T DIE
OI YOU! Totul a inceput dintr-o joaca, o joaca de copil mare. Dupa o perioada de mIRC, forumuri, calatorii cu personalul interminabile, concerte in diverse orase, fete cu converse si rucsac cu “punk” scris cu marker-ul, baieti cu tricouri negre si tatuaje, bere la cetate, bere la digul cu slipknot, baschet la un panou stramb, 1 de mai la Costinesti si Vama Veche, revelioane in aprtamente mici si galagioase, oameni buni si minunati, prieteni adevarati si trupe ce inca ne mai incanta si ne fac sa zambim. Am intalnit oameni care mi-au zambit din prima clipa, oameni care si azi imi spun ca sunt cu nasul pe sus, oameni care ma sunau la miezul noptii sa-mi spuna problemele, oameni care au trecut de la zambetele simple la ironi si vorbe aruncate aiurea. Oameni ce au trecut de la Ramones la Vijelie si la Tiesto, oameni care si-au sters cuvantul “punk” de pe rucsac, oameni care acum merg cu intercity-ul (cu bilet), oameni care te suna doar cand au nevoie de tine si foarte multe tipuri care te fac sa zambesti sau te intristeaza. Vise ce nu mai au aripi, falsitate si mandrie, lipsa de modestie si lauri primiti pentru nimic. Noi ramanem aici si zambim, ascultam muzica ce ne place (inca) si ne jucam in continuare. Ne auzim in curand prieteni.

I DON’T WANT TO GROW UP

E din ce in ce mai greu sa ma joc cum vreau eu, tot mai multe persoane mari pe langa mine care ma sperie...pana una alta ne vedem pe la concerte, pe strada, la cafea, la mare, la soare, la munte...simplu si frumos. Multumesc Constangeles! pentru ca inca imi este dor de tine, si trupelor si prietenilor si oamenilor buni si frumosi si sinceri si care ma fac sa zambesc. Ma inclin!

REDSKA LA RIVOLTA

RedSka strikes back with the new material from One Step Records called La Rivolta, the same combat-ska/ punk with a huge and strong political message, against war, against fascism, ignorance, a call to arms for our mother nature, a strong hymn for the rebel hooligans from the stadiums with their colors in their hearts. United and strong on 14 tracks that will keep you awake and proud for what you believe. Good friends come togheter on this album: Micky from No Relax for a great cover of White Riot from The Clash, Kino from Arpioni, Valerio from The Offenders. If you like No Relax, Talco, Los Fastidios, Ska-P then you should get this album. One Step Records for Italy, Mad Butcher for Germany and rest of Europe and RedStar73 for Spain.

The fact that we have made it to our 20th release and our 3rd compilation is something that we never expected, but also something we are really pleased about, especially as it’s all been done on a non-profit basis whilst trying to balance it with other commitments, such as full time jobs. TNS simply couldn’t exist without the help of everyone who buys our releases, supports us and obviously all the bands involved. This compilation is a collective release between ourselves and all the bands who feature and it could not have happened without their help. All of these bands work very hard for very little (or no) financial gain, because they love the music they play and the amazing community our music scene provides, which stretches worldwide. If you can help them out by picking up their other albums and EPs or by watching them live (or even by putting them on in your town or city... seriously if we can do it, anyone can) we know it means everything to them. The underground scene is thriving at the moment despite the fact that we are facing such difficult times politically and socially, so lets keep it that way. Support your local bands, promoters, fanzines and radio shows and they will continue to go from strength to strength and exist outside of the commercial world. This album is just a snapshot of the bands we listen to and have worked with. There are so many more amazing bands everywhere who also deserve your support, some of which have been on previous compilations/releases and many whom we are yet to even hear.

Our third compilation is now available for pre-order. We have been putting this beauty together for a while and it is now ready to share with the world. The compilation features 42 tracks of underground music from the UK and the rest of the world across two CDs. We are really proud of our third compilation and think it is our best one yet. It is due to arrive mid-March and you can pre-order it now from our webstore. It will be posted out as soon as it arrives with the first 20 orders will also be sent a FREE TNS patch and Compilation poster.

MAD BUTCHER RECORDS proudly presents:
Mel Tepid, godfather of Minnesota ska, began playing ska in 1995. As he found his rock band at the time running out of steam, one night he dreamt that one of the guitarists left the band. In the dream, he suggested to the two remaining bandmates that they form a ska band. Strangely enough,within a week, one of the guitarists did indeed quit the band and Mel formed Umbrella Bed with his two remaining bandmates. Mel soon built his ska credentials opening for such noteworthy acts as The Specials, The Selecter, The Beat and even the legendary Skatalites at the equally legendary Minneapolis venue, First Avenue. Over time songs written by Mel were included in dozens of videos, movies and CDs eventually influencing the next generation of Midwest ska musicians. Mel has played around the U.S., U.K., and mainland Europe having spent hundreds of nights playing to sweaty, crazed, dancing fans. Mel’s newest project, Mel Tepid and the Soul Ska Farmers, combines the foundation of two tone ska, with a smooth melodic layer of 1960s & 1970s soul, and an extra kick of early punk with his debut CD, Stead Fast, released on Mad Butcher records.

Trupa incepe sa devina cunoscuta in undergroundul New Yorkez si incep de asemenea un turneu in US. Back With A Bong urmeaza in 1989 si in 1991 cel de-al treilea album The Best Of Times. Un mix de punk, hc, ska probabil cel mai reusit album al trupei, fiind produs de nimeni altul decat John Fisher de la Fishbone. EP-ul Good For Now este lansat in 1993 si aduce o maturizare in stilul trupei fiind produs de Daniel Rey ( celebru datorita colaborarii cu nume ca: Ramones, Misfits, Gang Green ). Dedicated a urmat in 1996 fiind produs de acelasi Daniel Rey la Another Planet Records, acesta fiind ultimul album al trupei pana in 2001 cand lanseaza The Party’s Over. Albumul s-a bucurat de un mare succes fiind dedicat primarului din NY: Rudolph Giuliani, de asemenea o alta piesa intens promovata si de succes a fost Wlaking Alone si bineinteles un cover dupa celebrii Symarip, Skinhead Girl. Dupa numeroase schimbari de case de discuri, colaborari si compilatii, trupa semneaza cu I Scream Records care le propune si o re editare a albumelor precedente, pe vinil si digital.

WE ALL SING ALONE

The Bouncing Souls sunt mandria orasului New Jersey. S-au format in 1987 si raman un icon in scena punk chiar si dupa 25 de ani de la infintare. Numele trupei vine dintr-o reclama a celebrilor Doc Martens care spune “with Bouncing Soles”. Primul material al trupei vine in 1994 la Chunksaah Records (propriul lor label), The Good, The Bad and The Argyle in fapt acest prim album este de fapt o compilatie a celor mai bune piese din EPurile anterioare. Maniacal Laughter vine in 1996 si ii aduce in atentia celor de la Epitaph Records, tot cu acest album trupa pleaca intr-un turneu alaturi de Youth Brigade. Primul album la Epitaph poarta numele de The Bouncing Souls si cuprinde unele din cele mai apreciate piese ale trupei ca: East Coast Fuck You, Kate Is Great sau Cracked. Hopeless Romantic urmeaza in 1999 si odata cu acest album tobosarul Shal Khichi a fost inlocuit cu Michael McDermott (fondator la Murphy’s Law). How I Spent My Summer Vacation a venit in 2001 sub noul line up. Trupa a mai participat alaturi de Anti Flag pe celebra serie de la BYO de spli cd-uri cu materialul: The Bad, The Worse and The Out Of Print. Cel de-al 6-lea album Anchors Aweight vine in 2003 si reprezinta unul din cele mai mature ale trupei si un sound destul de catchy dupa spusele unor critici. Pe 6 iunie 2006 adica pe 6/6/06 o coincidenta dupa cum recunosc cei din trupa, lanseaza The Gold Record pe care il promoveaza in cadrul Warped Tour. Trupa a mai lansat Ghosts On The Boardwalk in 2010 si a participat pe o serie numeroasa de compilatii. Noul material Comet a fost lansat anul acesta si o prima piesa Static poate fi ascultata pe siteul lor ca preview.
