Lower Class Brats
Lower Class Brats
Like a festering sore or a criminal rap sheet, the Lower Class Brats won't go away.

Formed in Austin, Texas in 1995, the Brats hit the scene like a gob of Lone Star loogie and have been spitting like cobras ever since. Brazenly unapologetic and frightfully in-your-face, the band's knuckle-busting brand of safety-pinned street punk has launched a legacy of hostility.

After scraping and stealing (or worse) to release a handful of broke-budget, seven-inch singles, the Brats finally issued their rabidly devoured 1997 debut album, "Rather Be Hated Than Ignored." A promise as much as a threat, "Hated" became a rallying cry for Austin's underground punk scene and served as marching orders for the germinating LCB Army. It also became an Oi! classic.

Sixteen years and multiple albums later (to say nothing of the untold beers, drugs, fights and vomit) the Brats and their tattooed Army remain a growing worldwide disease. Tours across Mexico, Europe, North America, Canada, Japan and elsewhere left a wake of wreckage and won countless new LCB recruits who proudly wear the band's clockwork skull mascot on tattered jackets and deep in their skin.

Today, to the great dismay of polite society, the Brats refuse to slow down or sober up. With new music always ticking like a bomb, the next explosion of chaos, riot and ruin is right around the next piss-stained corner. Consider yourself warned … and invited!

Street Brats
Street Brats
After Three 7"s, two Full Lengths... The STREET BRATS are a Chicago punk rock band, plain and simple. They don't like being generalized into any specific category, but their music seems to fall somewhere between the lines of more ‘77 influenced punk with hints of harder classic bands like the Cockney Rejects and Slaughter and the Dogs. Very anthemic and catchy street punk rock with tinges of Mike Ness, Joe Strummer, Hanoi Rocks, and the Ramones, all also being major influences of the four year old band. They've been called "the best street punk combo to come out of Chicago's mean streets since the glory days of the Effigies,” with enough hooks, guitar twists, and sing-a-longs to satisfy anyone that's bored with all the watered down retro crap that's passing as ‘77 punk these days.

BITERS
BITERS
"In this digital age of disposable razors, disposable relationships and disposable music, anything authentic seems more precious than ever.
Discovering the indigo denim of an old Levi's jacket or an arrowhead in your backyard are some of the joys untold. Biters are a rock and roll band hailing from Hatecity and upon first listen you know they are the real deal. Steeped in rock tradition, this young group blends the alchemic mixture of louder than Hendrix volume with a heaping elixir of pure brutality. If Tom Petty was assaulted by the Sex Pistols while Stiv Bator was pouring the drinks, that scene would approximate the sound of the Biters. Their music winks and nods at tradition but reveals glimmers of future. Biters will take a chunk out of your ass and heart leaving you wanting more." -Nico Constantine
The Non-Believers
The Non-Believers
You can call them the fuckin' NON-BELIEVERS. Chicago's born and bred boys of punk just released as solid of a debut album as one could ask for, packing it full of angst-ridden verses and sing-a-long choruses. Featuring three previous members of Chicago's notorious STREET BRATS, this quartet is hellbent on taking over the windy city one crowd at a time. With a no holds barred album such as . . . From The Bottom and an intense live show, it's only a matter of time before THE NON-BELIEVERS are a household name
Ponx Attax
Ponx Attax
We're PONX ATTAX straight out of Saint Paul Minnesota, and Mexico. Masters of exploiting CHAOS.
The Potato Pirates
The Potato Pirates
The Potato Pirates formed in Denver, Colorado around 2005 to start a band combining all of their collective influences (street punk, Oi!, ska, hardcore). They keep it exciting, so they're not one of those bands where every song sounds the same.
The Bad Engrish
The Bad Engrish
The Bad Engrish started mid summer, Denver of 2009, in a one car garage with 4 lousy and loud punks. Two from Texas and Two from Michigan, We put our pints together and came up with some pogo oi! noi!se that we liked. Then life and kids happen and the Texans had to call it quits. Thats when Salmanilla of the Allergies and Kill City Bombers, joins us on guitar and Justin Shortslevee from The Rotaways joined on the drums. We held this line up for 5-7 months and got a tour in and picked up on Joe Pogo Records. After the tour we got along time friend Jman to take over the drums, Justin picked up a guitar and Sal took lead...That was fun for a while but Justin felt like moving home to the Eastcoast. Once again we had another problem. But we still played shows,did another tour, and put out a split with friends PONX ATTAX on Joe Pogo Records.
Late 2010 is when we found the last Engrishmen (hopefully!) Jason Kalkman to take Justin spot. The Bad Engrish is on a roll, we have a 2011 fall tour planed, a 12in picture disc and cd release at The Mid-West Mohawk/No Coast Punx Fest., in St. Paul June 25-26th 2011!!!,.Max.R'n'Roll said we play high quality punk rock, so you can take that how up please. But we think we play working class pogo Oi! noise, for whoever wants to have fun and drink beers with us and pogo till they puke!
That about sums it up for now,...Cheers!

Sniper 66
Sniper 66
Sniper 66 cultivates a brash, hard hitting brand of punk from their home soil in Austin, Texas. Sniper 66 was formed in 2009, by singer/guitarist Dylan Close and bassist Jeff Ellis, later rounded out by guitarist Jeremy Brister and drummer April Schupmann. They play punk, tight and crisp with bullet-paced drums. While giving a nod to the forefathers, they also blend in the fury of 90’s punk. For over seven years, Sniper 66 has been putting a modern spin on a classic genre of music.

Incendiary, invigorating sounds have been distilled to ensure maximum delivery.
You can hear bands like Oxymoron, One Way System, Abrasive Wheels, and The Virus weave in and out of these still original sounds. Rock and roll grit fuels tunes like “Firecracker”, and “I Know It’s True” from their breakout self-titled album. Their second, Caput Lupinum, features aggressive and thoughtful tracks like “Another War” and “Society". They released a split 7 inch with Denver's Potato Pirates in early 2016, which features the song "Warrior's Way"...accompanied by a ‘killer’ music video!

Their relentless tour schedule has seen them cover the United States a few times over, keeping their fans hungry, always earning new followers along the way. They have played Tulsa's popular Fuck You, We Rule OK! festival in 2013 & 2015, Midwest Live & Loud in 2014, the main stage and a pool party for 2015's Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas, and most recently shared the main stage with GBH and many more at 2016's Rude Fest in St. Louis, and did a tour with Bad Co. Project (ex-Oxymoron) for 8 dates in the northeast United States as part of their larger Stand Your Ground Tour.

This band is showing no signs of slowing down! They are garnering attention in 2016, and will be taking new material (via Contra Records) and fan favorites to Europe in the fall, which includes a stop in Munich for the annual Pogorausch Festival.
The Generators
The Generators
The origin of Los Angeles’ influential punk band The Generators dates back to 1997, just a few miles from the skyscrapers of downtown. In the early days, the band hung out and wrote music in an old vacant pizza oven factory, churning out their first batch of songs, which echoed the sentiments of the 1977 Punk spirit. They quickly got attention from the owners of the infamous Triple X Records, who were known best for their 1980’s roster that included Social Distortion, The Vandals, GBH and Jane’s Addiction. Without haste, the indie punk label put The Generators into the recording studio where they produced their first album ironically titled Welcome To The End.

Vocalist Doug Kane and guitarist Mike Snow’s friendship goes way back to their early teens, growing up in Pasadena, CA. They both played in bands during Los Angeles’ early punk explosion and would share the same stages at punk dives around town. In 1983, Kane fronted one of America’s very first Oi! punk bands, Doug & The Slugz, while Snow played guitar for one of California’s foremost Mod revival bands The Way. Years later they were members of the Southern California Punk band Schleprock, which spent the better half of the late 1980’s and mid 1990’s supporting acts like The Specials, Rancid, NOFX, Face to Face, Sublime and Bad Religion among others. In 1995, Schleprock signed to Warner Bros Records, but by the following year the band called it quits due to drug addictions and internal fighting.

Between 1998 and 2002, The Generators went on to release another two full-length albums, one 10” EP and a 7” single, and just like wayward children, they found themselves on the doorstep of San Francisco’s street punk based label TKO Records. Over the next few years the band kept evolving, but always remained true to their early punk rock roots. As their music continued to resonate with fans, companies like Corona Beer and sports teams like the Los Angeles Lakers and the California Angels were also picking it up for commercial use. With scores of tours behind them and a full catalog of songs to fall back on, The Generators trudged their way through the next decade, releasing another four records with various labels along the way.

By 2012, the band had come full circle and was touring in support of a wide range of bands like The Damned, Megadeth, The Dead Kennedys and The Offspring. Their list of accomplishments continued to grow, and later that year one of the country’s largest news publications, US News, mentioned The Generators as “one of America’s most underrated punk bands.”

Now, almost eighteen years since the days of making punk songs in the old pizza oven factory, The Generators still carry on strong. In 2014, the band will release their tenth full-length album titled Life Gives-Life Takes on their new record label Randale Records. They’ll also be showcased on the main stage at Punk rock Bowling Music Festival in Las Vegas, NV and are already confirmed for large festivals dates and a tour throughout Europe this summer.

RMBLR
RMBLR
“RMBLR”(pronounced “Rambler”) banded together July 4, 2016 by four mercenaries active as the “Filthy Few”, who were the touring line up for widely known, proto-punk sensations, Dinos Boys at the time. The mighty reign of RMBLR stretches down the east coast, with half of the band belonging to the boroughs of Baltimore and the other half making mischief in backstreets of Atlanta. A reputation precedes the members as a “Rabid Rock and Roll band that foams at the mouth with the snotty sounds of 70’s punk, snarling “buzz saw” blues riffs and a spit of hard glam, stadium stompin’ hooligan chants.” - (Jesus Christ)

Direct descendants of Chuck Berry. Sons of The Saints and Cousins to Coloured Balls of Australia. Kin to The Kids of Belgium. Ramblers and Rumblers. Madmen and Muck Runners. Veterans and active soldiers serving a lifetime duty in the name of punk and rock and roll.

The CRY!
The CRY!
The CRY! Is a five-piece Rock 'n' Roll (Power-pop) band from Portland OR. With influences like The Boys, The Ramones, and The Stones, the band has re-crafted the 2 min. pop song for a new generation. The CRY! effortlessly merges 50's style vocal harmonies, the jangle of 60's pop hooks and the glam-rock attitude of the 70's with the raw punkish emotion of the Portland (OR) street culture from which they emerged.

Founded in 2011, The CRY!’s self-titled/self-produced debut album (released in Nov. 2011) was released/distributed by SP Records/Tokyo and Taken By Surprise Records/Munich. has sold-out six pressings (CD&12"LP) and earned rave reviews from Rolling Stone, Maximum Rock’n’Roll and dozens of other industry sources worldwide. On March 15th , 2014 the CRY! released their 2nd studio LP "Dangerous Game." Even before it's release the highly anticipated album earned high-praise within the power-pop/rock 'n' roll community and has garnered dozens of critical reviews. One label executive, after hearing a mix of the new album, summed up his critique in one word: "epic!"

In Sept, 2014 The CRY!'s "Dangerous Game: US Edition" was released for U.S. distribution. The collection features 13 tracks taken from the previous two Japanese and European releases and a never before released track "Last Thing That I Do"

The CRY! motto, “Never Suck,” has produced a professionalism, work ethic and sense-of-purpose typically seen in older well-seasoned acts. The band's hard work, upbeat energy, stage presence, hooky songwriting, and “DO-IT-YOURSELF” attitude have garnered over 150,000 views on YouTube , and a strong social networking fan-base.
