feasting on rock n' roll's remains!!!
A brief history:
The band formed early 2017, after front woman and bassist Jazz Limbo had been playing bass for numerous bands and artists around LA. Twice touring with Marc Orrell (ex DKM) in his side project Wild Roses, she then went on and did vocal backups for Jason Cruz (Strung Out) and The Howl. In the punk scene, she is renowned for her bass playing with bands like The Bitchfits (Female Misfits Tribute), taking on the persona “Jazzy Lonely”. She is also the “bass mistress general” for Des and The Cendents (a female fronted tribute to the Descendents) and plays bass for iT? featuring Jason Shapiro (Redd Kross). Fast forward years later and the desire to front her own band was still looming. The opportunity finally came to make it happen when she found the right guitar players to join her.
Jazz had first met guitar player Paul Levesque, in Arizona while she was on tour with Des and the Cendents. He was a bass player at the time for band, Light Speed Go. By a mutual love for the bass and punk music, the two hit it off immediately. Little did they know that years later, Paul would move to LA and that they would work right down the street from one another. They also shared mutual friends, leading to the Labor Day party hosted by drummer Chris Dalley and a jam session that transformed the idea of playing in a band together, into reality. It was at this party that Jazz and Paul met up with lead guitar player, Ricky Sherman (Kill Corporations). By chance, Ricky had just become available as his band had just broke up indefinitely. After jamming some tunes together, the chemistry between them was undeniable and the band FARE GAME was born. The drum chair changed a few times before their first EP was recorded, but ultimately it was filled by Jazz’s long time friend Tom Plumb; the “original” drummer that cowrote some of the recorded songs prior to the band forming. Each member of this band is a veteran and a master of their craft respectively. Within 6 months time, the band has played multiple shows, 2 festivals, and recorded their first 7 song EP entitled Breakin’ Rules. FARE GAME may still be in its infancy but the musicianship is clearly not amateur.
The idea behind FARE GAME is to inspire people to play into “the game” and beat it, rather than “cashing out”; all the while knowing that it’s not “fair”. The antlers are a symbol of our connection to nature, following your intuition, strength and growth, and to serve as reminder that humans beings are being treated like commodities.
Only in knowing this fact, can we implement change. There is power in knowledge and you’ve got to know the rules if you want to win the game.
We’re Fare Game .. are you?

THE FILL INS - THE TIME IS NOW
Holy shit. Oh no, they didn’t.
“Sinner’s Choice” was probably the best possible record opener in the known universe (still don’t think it gets enough love). It starts with Adam Patterson’s Ramones-esque four-count, followed by that delicious, fetching four-chord sound. The second guitar dives in, pick screeching down the neck and I decided at that second that I would never seal a band’s fate again. It’s the perfect introduction for the assault that’s about to happen to you for the next twenty-something minutes.
The Time is Now is a riff ruffian. Straight ahead, adrenaline-inciting madness like “Lock and Load”, “Hate” and “It’s a Blast” show no signs of the Fill Ins slowing down, while Bluesy Classic-AOR-tinged Rawk tracks like “Feelin’ Good” make you wonder...Does the world make any sense if The Fill Ins aren’t rock stars?
The record is like Ramones meets classic-era Black Flag, but with a great lead guitarist. Mikey’s on point, and I do mean always. Alex has a very Damaged-era Rollins roar, but somewhere in there is some old school, guileless Hard Rock. And just how perfect is a line like “Don’t you stay in just one place/A sonic blast right through your face.”
“Saturday Night” and “Hit the Gas” had been released last year, but make sense on The Time is Now. They belong right here where they are.
These guys have their shit together. Although Alex remains the sole original member, I believe that this band would not be the same without each and every one of these guys. They each bring their own part and parcel and the finished product is nothing short of perfection. Oh, Fill Ins. Please don’t ever change. Please don’t ever stop rocking.
The Fill Ins don’t want to educate you. They don’t want to convert you to their political ideas. The Fill Ins don’t want to tell you that she loves you. No, no, no. The Fill Ins want to fucking rock. They want to rock until you pass out on the couch and then draw on your face with a permanent marker. Then, rock some more.

TRACK BY TRACK REVIEW
by Andrew Balderson
Maysaloon – Warsphere: No messing balls out Metal with an intense sound that is in your face & exhilarating.
Black Optic – I Don’t Mind: The first thing is that hits is the THUNDEROUS nature of their Music, then the Vocals hit & its mosh time, there is a familiarity in these track & the lyrics carry the track in a superb fashion.
Discrepancies – Not Alone: The thing that strikes me is the Bass, the sound & the power it pushes the song along, and it is perfectly matched with the Drums.
Distance Defined – Iron Hand: Who wants a punch in the face? Well here you go. The intro oozes aggression & angst in such a way that you know you’re going to be in pain by the end of the track.
Nightwalkers – Nitrogenesis: From the very first note I was transported back to 1988 & the Thrash Metal movement of that time, I suddenly wanted all my hair to grow back & be long so I could mash my neck up. Where is my Battle Vest? just hearing this track made me want to find it & wear it while walking around with a Ghetto Blaster pumping out Nightwalkers.
Prison City Brigade – We Are The Brigade: As soon as this track hit it reminded me of “We Are The League” but done in PCB’s Hard Punk style, if ever there was a need for an Anthem to all things Punk then this IS IT. Long Live the Brigade.
Dustland Express – The Poetic Injustice of Rats: How many millions did this Band spend on this Album? The sound quality, the production, the arrangement, the pure awesomeness just gives the impression of a Major Label Band hitting their mark. This track is off the scale when it comes to measuring Underground Bands.
SLaM – Tale of the Victim: Not your typical Voiceless Band, with every EP released you get something different. However, every time this Band puts a Track on a UNU Compilation it is an exclusive, and yet it kind of blends with all the other releases that SLaM has jammed in our ears since 2014.
Operation Neptune Spear – 1984: ONS is not your typical on-man Band, The Shez has some serious Talent & 1984 just comes at you from every angle. My question is this, where did he come from? What’s next for ONS?
LORD GIVER – Sagacious Fortitude: Do you need some traditional Death Metal, then look no further. Pounding sounds with Guitar speed generally reserved for the more extreme Death Metal Bands. This works on all levels.
Bleed By Example – Exit Wounds: Move over Lamb of God there are some new guys in Town & they want your scalps, this Band is so good it’s scary.
Almost Honest – Appalachian Sasquatch: Where to start? What can I say that will pay the correct level of respect to this spectacular Band. I can only suggest that you listen to them & try to figure out my quandary.
Backfat – I Hate Robert Plant: Firstly the level 500 Bass playing is absolutely stunning, then the rest of the Band kick in & the direct changes to something unexpected. This is some very very good Music.
The seeds of Datura – Pokea Uponyaji: Bring me the Doom & bring it NOW. Damn this track is off the hook. I can see a Mechanised Army using this track to lay waste to their enemies.
Temple of Katharsis – Redemption Through Blood: Want some aggressive driving / road trip material, look no further.
GOO FISH – Bingbong in the Bathroom: Where did these guys come from? How can I have not heard this Band before? Possibly one of my new Underground favs.
Also Known As – Into Oblivion: Twice on this Compilation I have been Transported back in time & AKA tack me back to the late 90’s. Thank you guys.
Is it just me or is the Underground offering more Musical diversity than the Major Labels? This Compilation is already my absolute fav, it has some of the greatest talents on offer from every genre of Music coming from within the Metal Community. I have to ask what would happen if half of these Bands got major investment? And the other half simply got noticed?
OMP UNPLUGGED ON RADIO ROACH!
ONE SENTENCE REVIEWS
Makes me want to skate and break my arm again.
The Evil Dead's Music rips!, but the vocals are kind of rough.
Reminds me of Municipal Waste, who reminds me of old Anthrax.
The Fill Ins
The Fill Ins are Charlotte, NC’s premiere high-octane Rock n Roll band; sporting catchy guitar riffs and an unapologetic attitude. Conceived
back in 2010 and officially debuting in 2014; The Fill Ins have endured countless lineup changes and musical fads with no plans on slowing down any time soon.
The band has released 2 full albums and a hand-full of EPs and singles. “Spit In My Face” (off the 2015 album “5th Time’s The Charm”) gained a cult following boasting 3k plays in under 48hrs and gaining popularity among internet radio stations and local / regional rock radio stations; their
follow-up single “Hit The Gas”, released on colored 7in vinyl has since surpassed "Spit In My Face" in popularity, showing the world what is next for the boys.
In 2017, The Fill Ins are gearing up for their next album titled "The Time is Now", schedulate for an early summer release; showcasing more of the loud rock n roll that The Fill Ins have to offer.
Within the last three years, The Fill Ins have opened for legendary acts like Wednesday 13 (3 times in 2 years), Joe Buck Yourself, GBH, the Dwarves, Richie Ramone, Total Chaos, Reno Divorce, Koffin Kats, ANTiSEEN and Reverand Horton Heat.
The group has also headlined Tremont Music Hall’s 20th Anniversary
Show (Charlotte NC) to a nearly sold out attendance and performed in many local festivals such as Punk Rock Picnic and Dirty South Fest.
The group has also been a part of numerous benefit shows to raise funds for members of the community including 2 shows to raise awareness to our unfortunate local heroin issue and provide funding for local harm prevention centers. Do not be mistaken though, The Fill ins are NOT a political band. The Fill Ins believe that music is an escape for the “every day” issues;
“We want our fans to feel good after a show, not be weighed down
with the issues of everyday life. Just get up and have a good time!" ----Alex Stiff

Drunk in a dumpster - No Anger Control Split
This split album kicks off with Drunk in a Dumpster, who emphatically embrace their Crossover Thrash influences. Vocalist David Baird sounds drunk and probably is. The band is tight as fuck, all across the board and all throughout their side.
Their tendency for brevity doesn’t mean there aren’t riff-heavy interludes, like the brilliant intro to “The Oppression of Humanity”. The leads, when they appear, are sick. It makes you wonder how they play these little goodies intoxicated.
Like they say in their over-two-minute epic “We Don’t Give a Fuck”, if you think that they suck, well, guess what asshole - They don’t give a fuck. Not giving a fuck never sounded so good.
Then, No Anger Control’s side, carrying that traditional Hardcore flag with pride and in turn, making Hardcore proud.
NAC was founded in 2012, with vocalist Tiff completing the lineup six months later (thank goodness). Changing tempos with the occasional breakdown, the brilliant brutality never desists.
Though it’s tempting to compare with other female-led Punk bands, this would actually be a disservice and completely misleading. NAC has a sound like no other, but would be closer to Bad Brains or Circle Jerks than Lunachicks or the Bombpops. Challenging vanity, hypocrisy and anger management, NAC is way too fierce and ferocious for such comparisons. My personal favorite, “My Time” is like Agnostic Front in their peak form.
The cover is a magnificent portrayal of each lead singer facing off like they’re about to become bloody friends. It’s a visual manifestation of what happens on the record - a blistering battle between these two jolting Hardcore bands. Who wins? The listener.

IKE LIKES TO GET WASTED - Ike's Wasted World
Ike’s Wasted World is a throwback to the simpler and better times in rock and metal. These songs breathe. There is space for the riffs and drums to linger and there is an undercurrent of blues that runs throughout the songs. In short, this is good stuff. I would love to spend a day looking at this band’s record collection. I bet I would find tons of killer 70’s rock and metal records.
This album would be the perfect for a road trip or make a killer soundtrack for a biker movie. In short, this is an album made for action. Action and beers.
For fans of: DIO, CANDLEMASS, LYNYRD SKYNYRD, BUDGIE, and BLACK SABBATH

EYEHATE GOD - TAKE AS NEEDED FOR PAIN
There is something buried in the layers of sludge, down tuned guitars, feedback, and screaming that seemed to fit my descent into a very Bukowski-like lifestyle. Most days I would show up to work still half drunk and stoned to go through the motions required of me to earn a paycheck. Immediately after payday, I would spend the weekend drinking Budweiser, smoking like a freight train while EHG blared from my stereo. It was like always having good company around you; the kind of company that always approves of your self-destruction and never seems to pass judgment.
Welcome to Sketch Town, bubba.
I am not trying to glorify or recommend that kind of lifestyle to anyone. However, EHG will always serve as a good soundtrack if you find yourself in that kind of situation. Below I have listed a few key points to serve as a guide to help the reader determine if they are currently in similar a situation:
· Missing work due to massive hangovers/ Still too intoxicated to work
· Using change to buy booze
· More of your possessions are in the pawn shop than at your house
· Planning ways to screw people over for your own amusement
· Secretly hating everyone around you
· Random acts of vandalism past the age of 30
This music is not for the faint of heart. It is not necessarily even intended for “happy” people. Those suburban wasters who are happy to spend their weekends agonizing over which type of shrub or bush will complete their “backyard oasis” at the local mega-home improvement outlet store. It is not for those who worry about how high-interest rates will affect their 30 year mortgage, while still allowing sufficient funds for their wife’s long overdue breast augmentation.
You don’t listen to EHG on the golf course. You don’t listen to EHG on your way to Old Navy. You don’t listen to EHG while you are crying to psychiatrist about how your mom never showed you any affection and how your dad forgot your birthday. You listen to this band when you have given up and you don’t give a fuck anymore. You suck up your problems and accept your broken, hopeless lot in life. You gather up all your loose change, decide what items will go to the pawn shop today, call the guy who gets things, and you chase oblivion.
DR. BEARDFACE AND THE SPACEMAN
In January of 2017, the band signed with the NYC/Austin based punk label Altercation Records, and soon after premiered their first music video on Blank TV for their single "I Need It". The video was shot, produced, and edited entirely by the band's guitar player, Matt Boyle, and can be seen on YouTube and Blank TV. In May 2017, Dr. Beardface will release their first full length LP on the Altercation label, titled "Here for the Scraps". They are currently touring the U.S., including stops in Austin, TX for the 2017 SXSW festival, and are already writing and recording songs for a follow up album. Their live show is explosive with energy, incredibly fun, and not to be missed, so make sure you catch Dr. Beardface and the Spaceman when they roll into your city.

Top 10 Grunge Songs By Lindsaycake
Hook it all up….Mtv…Stick a VHS on SLP…queued up for recording. A masterpiece of personalized videos just around the corner. This process took patience …it could conceivably take at least a week to get a solid “Video Mix” completed. Mostly because you were lucky if you got 1 good song an hour. During the day Mtv played top 40. The good ones came on after 10 p.m. or so.
While shitty videos were on, I would make mix cassette tapes for my friends or whatever hapless soul I was dating at the time.
And then, a sound came out of my T.V. that I will never forget. I frantically fumbled through clothes, soda cans and the random mess of papers and cassettes for the giant 80’s style remote control. RECORD! When the video was over. I forgot all of my own recording etiquette and rewound the tape before it was finished to watch, “Smells like Teen Spirit “ by Nirvana again…and again…and again.
I promptly stole all of my dad’s flannel shirts, demanded combat boots, and marinated in the album I bought the very next day. Directly began composing angry, 3 chord ballads and asked everyone I knew how to get distortion out of my Sears brand amplifier.
“Smells like Teen Spirit “ was the first Grunge song I ever heard and I know it has been praised to death by the so called experts, but this is one of the rare instances where I agree. You can’t always be wrong….
I will forever be grateful to Nirvana for leading me to other great bands and to Kurt for his lyrical style being unafraid to write songs in the key of “romantic entrapment“ instead of limp dick cock rock that tended to put off a “Larger than Life “ ,“I‘m having more fun than you“. , I just bought the “Bat mobile” attitude.
Grunge I think in a nut shell was the first genre of music who focused on the pain of a generation what with many of us... so bored ,self- loathing, and disenchanted we drew on our dolls, flipped off our teachers , rode in the back of the bus, and idolized the mentally insane. ( I’m serious… it used to be a little cool to be institutionalized). So, without further ado, I give you MY top 10...(yes 10) Grunge songs. I know.... I normally go with the top 5 but, in this instance only choosing 10 is a feat. In no particular order....ENJOY!
