Enemy You Stories Never Told (2004)

CCCP 102

Enemy You first debuted on the four-way split dubbed Four On The Floor alongside bands Screeching Weasel, Teen Idols, and Moral Crux. A fine start among fine company that set the stage for their full length on Lookout! Records: Where No One Knows My Name. Then came shows, tours, and even a track on the illustrious Short Music For Short People compilation. The band spent a good long time working on their next proper full length, Stories Never Told, and that’s what we have here. After hearing bits of the unfinished record we at Red Scare were anxious to work with the band, and ta-da, here we are! You’d be surprised as to what you can accomplish with a little sweet talk and a lot of Wild Turkey.

Enemy You has toured the West Coast multiple times and played shows with all the punk rock heavies: NOFX, Bad Religion, Bouncing Souls, Lagwagon, etc. And in support of Stories they will continue to play frequently on the Left Coast as well as embark on their first big national tour of the States. With a new record to tout and a slew of shows to play, nothing can hold back these Bay Area dynamos! Except perhaps some more Wild Turkey…

Tracklist:

01. Your Way
02. We Are The Ones
03. These Halls
04. Money Makes The World Go Round
05. East and West
06. Something New

Teenage Bottlerocket Total (2005)

CCCP 103

The first proper full-length album from Wyoming’s favorite sons! In light of the dismal musical climate (shaggy haircuts, make-up, trite screamo vocals, etc), it would seem that isolation has only strengthened this band’s songwriting. Rather than waste their time with low-cut jeans, these young upstarts spend their efforts writing infectious punk songs, and they delivered the best Ramones-core record of the new millennium. I’m not exaggerating, folks. Read on!

Shortly after Teenage Bottlerocket agreed to work with Red Scare, they added a second guitarist. Oh, not just ANY guitarist, it was Kody from Lookout’s legendary pop punk trio the Lillingtons. I feel like the luckiest guy this side of the Cowboy State! Better yet, Kody went on to write and sing half the songs on Total, making this debut bound for success. The only possible way we could improve on this wondrous kismet is if Joey and Dee Dee rose from the grave to make guest appearances. But we figured that we should leave SOMETHING for the next record…

Tracklist:

01. Radio
02. So Cool
03. Stupid Games
04. Fall For Me
05. Crashing
06. So Far Away
07. Go Away
08. Rebound

CCCP 105

The now-legendary pop punk record is back in print!

The Lillingtons The Backchannel Broadcast (2001)

CCCP 106

The Lillingtons came from the unlikely cowtown of Newcastle, Wyoming. There’s no Second Avenue in Newcastle, and no Chicken Vindaloo either. But it’s the kind of place where men from space land their flying saucers and perform painful experiments on toothless farmers and Ramones-obsessed teenagers. Escaping the town of Newcastle by way of music has made the Lillingtons “the greatest band I’ve heard since the Queers” as said by Ben Weasel, and The Backchannel Broadcast makes that evident to everyone. Originally released on Lookout!/Panic Button in 2001, now re-issued by Red Scare.

Tracklist:

01. Final Transmission
02. Mindcontrol
03. The Kids
04. El Pamino
05. Dynomite

Bullets To Broadway Drink Positive (2005)

CCCP 107

Their sound combines Nashville with Gainesville for an aggressive punk rock hybrid made even catchier with Heather’s sweet harmonies and back-ups.

02. Stickin’ In The Middle
03. Greyhound

The Methadones 21st Century Power Pop Riot (2006)

CCCP 108

The title says it all: it’s a “21st Century Power Pop Riot”! Since forming five years ago, the hard-touring kings of Chicago pop-punk are finally selling out shows, and they finally have a new record to follow-up their breakout LP, 2004’s Not Economically Viable. Just like the Chicago Bears, these Midwesterners are back, and with 12 new punk-a-fied hits for their growing fanbase. It’s a mysterious release full of guest vocals that is one part tribute, one part concept, and one part power-pop-punk-rock! Oh, how the kids will dance…

01. Leader Of The Gang
02. Walking Out On Love
03. Back Of My Hand
04. Welcome to the Working Week

The Falcon Unicornography (2006)

CCCP 109

Members of The Lawrence Arms and Alkaline Trio reunited for a proper full length! Yep, The Falcon is back and these aren’t throw-away songs from their other bands. No ma’am, these tunes have been percolating for the last two years and they are truly a departure from what you’ve heard before. There’s everything from Clash-esque ska to balls-out rock reminiscent of Guns N’ Roses. And unlike the EP where everything was tracked in their bedrooms and kitchens, they actually used a real studio this time! Genuine professionals. Fans of Midwest punk have waited two years for more songs from The Falcon, and Unicornography has landed!

03. The La-Z-Boy 500

Sundowner Four One Five Two (2007)

CCCP 112

Chris McCaughan (Singer/Guitarist of The Lawrence Arms on Fat Wreck Chords) has been playing solo shows at clubs and coffee shops for the past few years. He culled together the best stuff, assembled a group friends to help fill out the songs, and dubbed the project Sundowner. Their debut record, Four One Five Two, comes as a great relief to the superfans and MySpace weirdos that have been begging for this material to be made available on record. That’s where we come in! Here’s the cherry on top: Four One Five Two offers some re-worked versions of hits originally recorded by The Lawrence Arms; like the fan favorite “100 Resolutions”. And when our man Chris isn’t on tour with The Lawrence Arms hyping the band, he’ll be doing his own solo tour in support of the record.

Tracklist:

The Copyrights Make Sound (2007)

CCCP 113

After two full lengths, a buncha 7″s, and tours aplenty, these kids are ready to step up their game. The people over at MRR went as far as to call them “Pop punk’s current saviors”! For the release of Make Sound The Copyrights have a new label, a new studio, and have further perfected their craft. Their last LP, Mutiny Pop, made everyone’s “Best Of” list and got them on tours with bands like Chixdiggit, Groovie Ghoulies, The Ergs, and more.

The Methadones This Won’t Hurt… (2007)

CCCP 114

Chicago’s Methadones got our attention with their last proper album, Not Economically Viable, which came out on Thick Records in 2004. It was their breakthrough, and anyone who overlooked that LP missed out on the BEST pop punk record of 2004. We then hooked up to release a hilarious party album (21st Century Power Pop Riot) that featured The Methadones with a number of guest vocalists covering Cheap Trick, Costello, and more. Now it’s back to business, and the ‘Dones have a new batch of originals that pick up where they left off with the great Not Economically Viable. It’s called This Won’t Hurt… and they recorded it at the famed Atlas Studios in Chi-Town. The same guys that brought you stuff from The Lawrence Arms and Alkaline Trio have captured The Methadones in all their glory and have them sounding better than ever. Fronted by the venerable Dan Vapid, they have yet another album full of undeniable hits and on top of all this, they have two tours booked in the near future…hide your beer and chicken wings!

Tracklist:

01. Six Degrees Of Separation
02. Getting Older/Losing Touch
03. Poor Little Rich Girl
04. Street In My Hometown

Cobra Skulls Sitting Army (2007)

CCCP 115

Reno’s Cobra Skulls play a brand of leftist punk that blends crust, folk, rockabilly, skate-punk, and who knows what else. Some say they sound like The Clash, some say The Living End, some say Against Me!. After garnering quite a buzz in neighboring towns, we at Red Scare saw their live show and were immediately sold on ‘em. Because of their varied influences, Cobra Skulls deliver a record so dynamic that everyone’s ears will perk up. And just when you think they’ve ran outta tricks, they bust out with songs in Spanish…aye carumba! Their parents are gonna be especially proud because these guys are quitting their jobs and planning on touring for the rest of 2007. Can you believe we made it to the end without making any jokes about Reno?

La Plebe ¡Hasta La Muerte! (2007)

CCCP 116

La Plebe are a special group, and probably San Francisco’s biggest punk band at the moment. Aside from playing countless packed shows, they are responsible for founding an especially promising Latino punk rock scene that has recently arisen from SF’s Mission District. But La Plebe make it a point not to be pigeonholed as they want to be known primarily for their rambunctious songs. And these guys are popular for a reason: they play the hits, Señor! So after a local label released 3 EPs, we brought them aboard in an effort to share this brilliant bilingual punk band with the rest of the punk/ska world. They then went into Motor Studios and cranked out a record under the direction of producer Bill Gould (founding member of Faith No More, Brujeria), and the result is their breakthrough LP, ¡Hasta La Muerte!. They tell me that means “’Til Death!”, but it could mean “Our Label Sucks!” for all I know…These guys have an undeniable live show, so look for them in your town as they tour the world!

Tracklist:

01. Reject/Refuse
02. La Esquina
03. Mi Tierra
04. Runnin’
05. Pinches Fronteras

Teenage Bottlerocket Warning Device (2008)

CCCP 118

Teenage Bottlerocket has delivered the goods. They’ve got a buncha new songs on an album called Warning Device that has been masterfully crafted at the Blasting Room (Descendents, Rise Against, Lagwagon, etc.). Their last record, the breakout release Total, got them on compilations with Fat Wreck Chords and Hopeless Records; not to mention national tours with bands like Epoxies and Groovie Ghoulies. The chords are power, the punk is pop, and they don’t give a rip about your haircuts because they’re far too busy ripping through their setlist. Warning Device will make you pogo ’til your leather jacket falls to pieces, so get on board or get burned by the Rocket!

Tracklist:

01. Bottlerocket
02. In The Basement
03. Gave You My Heart
04. She’s Not The One

Cobra Skulls Never Be A Machine (2008)

CCCP 121

After Cobra Skulls kicked the door down with their debut LP they were picked by Alternative Press as a “Band to Watch” and went on to tour with bands like Against Me!, The Loved Ones, Mad Caddies, and more. With a growing buzz and hungry fans, the band knew they had to feed the snakes with something between albums, and here it is: three new songs of politically-charged punk rock belted out as though they’ve seen the future and are warning us about the end of the world. We’re doomed, Scoob!

Druglords of the Avenues Sing Songs (2008)

CCCP 122

Fronted by Johnny Peebucks of the Swingin’ Utters, this debut full length is a dynamic blast of traditional punk rock from the streets of San Francisco! These 13 songs are raw and raucous overall, but listeners will also catch pearls of folk, pub rock, and more. Unlike their contemporaries who rely on charged hair and on-stage posturing, Druglords focus on their craft and deliver superb melodies over truly aggressive chords. For best results, mix with an Irish Whiskey or a Draught!

CCCP 123

The Isotopes Heatseeker EP (2009)

CCCP 126

4 baseball rock hits! The Isotopes load the bases and cash ’em all in at once with this punk rock grand slam. Leading off is “Heatseeker”, and it’s all about setting the mood with a little chin music. These boys dominate the pre-emptive strike zone and do what they gotta to win ball games. Nobody rides free in the first minute-six. “Suicide Squeeze” is up next and investigates the pressures of squeezing home the winning run. In the three-hole we have “Poison In The Clubhouse”—an anthem for fallen compadres. And clearing the sacks in this sonic rally is “Infield Fly”, a tune which explains clearly the Infield Fly Rule to all you 28-ounce bat-weights out there who can’t keep your facts in line.

Tracklist:

01. Heatseeker
02. Suicide Squeeze

Cobra Skulls American Rubicon (2009)

CCCP 127

There’ll be no sophomore slump from these seditious serpents. Not a chance. Cobra Skulls have sharpened their fangs by playing hundreds of shows all over the globe and their 2nd full length, American Rubicon, is the follow-up that the underground has been waiting for. 17 venomous tracks recorded in snowy Chicago during the winter of ’09 by Matt Allison at Atlas Studios (Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, etc). This new record is more dynamic than anything you’ve heard from Cobra Skulls and these bilingual punks offer up songs about the apocalypse, young love, punk scene politics, perpetual war, and even their own sordid upbringing. This is the kind of music that god-hating South American revolutionaries tune up their hot rods and comb their hair to. How do we know? Because they’re in the band!

Tracklist:

01. Time And Pressure
02. There’s A Skeleton In My Military Industrial Closet
03. Rebel Fate

The Sidekicks Weight Of Air (2009)

CCCP 128

This latest effort from The Sidekicks is a real product of their environment and the vibrant underground music scene around them in Northern Ohio. Less raw and punky, Weight Of Air is a surprisingly sophisticated release from the young quartet, and this time they draw more from Midwestern indie-punk influences like the Replacements, the Weakerthans, and Promise Ring. Lots of instrumentation, mature songwriting, youthful energy, and some of the catchiest hooks we’ve heard from any Red Scare band add up to an impressive follow-up. They may not be old enough to gamble and drink yet, but you can expect a lot more great music and great shows from these fresh-faced Clevelanders.

Tracklist:

01. Let It Breathe
02. Looking
03. A Healthy Time
04. Almost The Same
05. Day-Staring

Various Artists Untitled 21: A Juvenile Tribute To Swingin’ Utters (2010)

Swingin’ Utters had been a band for just over 21 years when we first began putting this tribute together for the beloved streetpunk heroes. Before we knew it, bands were coming out of the woodwork with their offerings: established acts like Dropkick Murphys and Fucked Up, as well as upstarts like Cobra Skulls and Off With Their Heads. Bands of all stripes from different sub-scenes and from far-off places like Israel and Sweden. The Utters may have started out as an earnest, working-class punk band from San Francisco, but their music has reached audiences far and wide. This collection is a testament to just how relevant and influential Swingin’ Utters are to all of us, and most importantly, this is the punk scene’s way of saying thanks.

Tracklist:

01. Useless ID “Unpopular Again”
02. Smalltown “Politician”
03. Roll The Tanks “Windspitting Punk”
04. Dropkick Murphys “Strongman”
05. Cobra Skulls “If You Want Me To”

Vultures United Savages (2010)

CCCP 137

SoCal’s Vultures United were first described to us as the “most terrifying band around”, but as it turns out, they’re pretty nice guys! Whew, right? There’s nothing well-adjusted about their music though, and they draw their sound from nearby predecessors such as Black Flag and Swing Kids; while younger listeners will probably liken them to modern-day bands like Gallows, Hot Snakes, and The Bronx. One listen to their Red Scare debut, Savages, will reveal to the world that Vultures United and their brand of dark, deviant hardcore cannot be categorized. It will, however, give you nightmares. Enjoy.

Tracklist:

01. The Natives
02. The Joy Divisions
03. Marty, Hang On
04. I Am My Father’s Son
05. Haunted Houses In The City Of Fountains

The Menzingers Chamberlain Waits (2010)

CCCP 139

After releasing an especially lauded EP and touring much of 2009, The Menzingers have been dubbed a “Band You Need To Know” in 2010 by Alternative Press and now they have a brand new full length proving why. Chamberlain Waits may very well be the most important record released so far by Red Scare and on it The Menzingers combine many of the genre’s styles (punk, hardcore, folk) to make for an undeniably infectious hybrid of hits. Produced by Matt Allison at Atlas Studios (Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, Lawrence Arms), this new album is destined for great, great things.

Tracklist:

01. Who’s Your Partner
02. I Was Born
03. Home Outgrown

The Brokedowns Species Bender (2010)

CCCP 140

The Brokedowns are a humble and oft-dormant quartet from right outside Chicago that somehow stole the punk rock spotlight in the last year. (And that’s where opportunist jackoffs like us come in, wink wink) They toured with Dillinger Four, landed on the cover of Razorcake Magazine, and released a killer 7″ on No Idea Records. Their new 13-song full length, Species Bender, is proof of all the great progress they’ve made as a band and will firmly plant ’em alongside the genre’s best. We’re talking about a truly rockin’ record, and The Brokedowns are one of the few bands still playing traditional punk rock and playing it well. On top of all that, they package it with hilarious, biting lyrics: songs that reference the Octo-Mom, wizards, Jersey Shore, Kid Rock, etc. That’s what I call a good fuckin’ time.

Tracklist:

01. Wizard Symptoms
02. I’m A Ritual
03. Noble Rot
04. A Romantic Weekend At The Night Train Vineyards
05. Done With Funk
06. Celebrity Death Panel
07. Loyal Looper (Theme From Renegade)
08. This Cult Is A Bummer

The Reaganomics Lower The Bar (2011)

CCCP 142

A couple years ago the members of the beloved metal-punk trio, Ryan’s Hope (Punknews Records/Epitaph), wanted to fuck off and play some fun, unhinged pop-punk songs. They formed The Reaganomics and immediately started playing shows around the Midwest with bands like Teenage Bottlerocket, Dead To Me, Off With Their Heads, etc. Let’s just say that if “Comedic Punk” was a real sub-genre, that’s where they’d belong with their songs about living with bears and partying with RoboCop. Hey, we never that this debut album was gonna prepare you for your PhD dissertation, but Lower The Bar will be the perfect soundtrack to the after party.

Tracklist:

01. Don’t Worry, We’ll Play First
02. Ed Hardy
03. Directive 5 (RoboCop’s Always Down)
04. Chor An Idiot
05. Going Rogue
06. You’re Done

The Heat Tape Raccoon Valley Recordings (2011)

CCCP 143

The Heat Tape are straight outta Makanda, Illinois (pop. 419) and their debut record, Raccoon Valley Recordings, takes it’s name from the very trailer park where the band conducts all their business. You heard right: this group was formed in a trailer park in Southern Illinois (not far from where they host the annual Gathering of the Jugggalos) and the band is made up entirely of trailer park denizens. Sadly, The Heat Tape are NOT a buncha hilljacks making music inspired by zoophilia and Funyuns. It’s actually long-time Red Scare comrade Brett Hunter (The Copyrights, Dear Landlord) making feverishly infectious lo-fi ditties with his friends in his mobile home. It reminds us of The Thermals, Jay Reatard, The Marked Men…if that helps. We fell in love on the first listen and now we’re bringing you some insights from the backcountry; so mix up that Mountain Dew with some vodka (they call that a Voo Dew in Makanda) and give this shit a spin.

Tracklist:

01. Spend It
02. 21st Century Turd
03. Oh Camilla
04. Rich Man
05. Quotes From An Unopened Letter
06. Skin
07. Grandma’s Guns
08. Ah Ha Ah

Teenage Bottlerocket Another Way (Deluxe Edition) (2011)

CCCP 144

This is the stuff that started it all: Teenage Bottlerocket’s first rare 12″ now combined with their first two outta print 7″s. Classic fan faves. That’s right, Red Scare is bringing you 17 songs of early TBR all wrapped into one sweet package that is now re-mastered and suped-up for you to enjoy at maximum volume. If you’ve only been paying attention to this band since they’ve been doing huge shows with bands like Mighty Mighty Bosstones and NOFX, you’ll wanna hear these old school tunes too. It’s raw, punchy, and Ramonesy rock that got them first noticed in the pop-punk scene. You’ve seen how far they’ve come, now see and hear how all the magic started!

Tracklist:

01. Be Stag
02. Patrick
03. Go-Go
04. She Can’t Think

Elway Passing Days – Single (2011)

CCCP 145

Elway Delusions (2011)

CCCP 146

This young four-piece from Colorado roamed the basements and punk houses of America for a couple years as the band 10-4 Eleanor, and after building quite a following among the sweaty/bearded segment of the underground, they opted for a new band name and a fresh start in 2011. Thus ushered in the era of Elway, and along with it comes their Red Scare debut, Delusions. It marks an ambitious step up for the band as they ditched their home recordings and enlisted audio guru Matt Allison at Atlas Studios (Alkaline Trio, Lawrence Arms, LTJ, Smoke or Fire, etc). Rest assured, this new one retains all the guts and grime that these guys are known for, but with more intricacy and nuance than you’d expect from your average “beardo” punk band. Delusions is thematically inspired by two things: our society’s regard for God and having to deal with maniacal loved ones; and these brainy rockers from the Rocky Mountains are sure to capture plenty of attention with this impressive beginning.

Tracklist:

01. 3/4 Eleanor
02. Passing Days
03. Spent So Long
04. Whispers in a Shot Glass
05. San Mateo
06. Song for Eric Solomon to Sing
07. Kristina’s Last Song
08. The Tired Old Whore’s Bedside Book

Nothington More Than Obvious (2011)

CCCP 147

Nothington is a band that already stands out from their punk peers because they boast a tasteful tinge of American Rock and a Western aesthetic. Imagine a young, gruff Social Distortion with whiskey-fueled anthems about loneliness and triumph. It makes perfect sense then that the SF band would eventually try an acoustic, stripped-down approach to their rootsy punk rock, and More Than Obvious is exactly that. This 4-song 7″/6-song digital EP sheds a new light on what these guys are capable of and proves their songs and melodies are great with or without amplified guitars.

Tracklist:

01. Not Looking Down (Acoustic)
02. Tired Hearts
03. More Than Obvious (Acoustic)
04. In Flames (Acoustic)
05. End Of The Day (Acoustic)
06. Down The Road (Acoustic)

The Holy Mess The Holy Mess (2011)

CCCP 148

Let’s put it this way, when we announced that Red Scare would be working with The Holy Mess we got the most positive response ever, and that hype has hardly died down as the band is already taking tour offers from bands like Dead To Me and The Flatliners. This new full length is the culmination of all their material thus far: their Dismount EP, their Benefit Sesh 7″, and two new tunes. This is gritty, anthemy, thrashy, and melodic punk rock. The 11 songs on this self-titled debut are just the first course in the delicious feast we expect from these Philadelphia wonderboys. Dig in.

Tracklist:

01. I Think Corduroy Is Making A Comeback
02. Captain, We’re Drinking!
03. Goodbye 3713 (Must’ve Been A Good One)
04.You Say PARTY! We Say WHERE!?!
05. Cigarette Reflections
06. It All Happened In A Ford Winstar
07. World Renowned Bonafide Shitshow!

The Copyrights Crutches – Single (2011)

The Copyrights North Sentinel Island (2011)

CCCP 150

Yet another gem to come out of Chicago’s Atlas Studios (Alkaline Trio, The Menzingers, Dead To Me, etc) and long-time Copyright’s fans will notice more instrumentation, experimentation, and added bells and whistles on this latest offering. But the nerds and die-hards need not fear, these are still the same pop-punk heroes we’ve come to rely on for big choruses, bigger hooks, and keen lyrics. This album—quite possibly their best yet—is the one that you bring along with you to that hypothetical deserted island… North Sentinel Island that is! *GONG*

Tracklist:

01. Trustees Of Modern Chemistry
02. Crutches
03. Hard-Wired
04. 20 Feet Tall
05. Expatriate Blues

Nothington Borrowed Time (2011)

CCCP 151

After releasing two albums with the esteemed folks from BYO Records, Nothington has branched out and joined the Red Scare family for their third and undoubtedly best full length. Proving again that two songwriters are always better than one, Red Scare really lucked out with this signing and we’re sure that listeners will agree. The young SF band started out by blending influences like Leatherface and Social Distortion, and they’ve truly perfected their own sound on Borrowed Time.

Tracklist:

01. Captive Audience
02. Where I Can’t Be Found
03. Far To Go
04. End Of The Day
05. To Hold On
