Berkeley’s Street Eaters, just back in the Bay Area after a whirlwind US tour, are playing the Knockout in SF on Thursday to celebrate the release of their full length LP Rusty Eyes and Hydrocarbons! Playing a spastic blend of poppy and political punk rock – it’s going to be a performance that’s not to be missed! I can only imagine how on point this duo is going to be after a month of touring. So get yourself on down to the Knockout in SF and don’t forget to pick up a copy of the new LP!

I while back I had the pleasure of taking Street Eaters official press photos and I thought this would be a great place to showcase some of their favorites from the bunch! Photography like this is new to me and we had a LOT of fun running around Berkeley to get these shots.
It’s really great to have such creative, inspiring and supportive friends!

Do you love it as much as I do when you hear a song from a local band that just fills you with good feelings? I live for it! Music is so many different things to me and I get so many different things from it. But it is something extra special when I am filled with joy because of it! Shannon and the Clams have been able to do that for me over and over again.
Shannon and The Clams new album Sleep Talk will be released on April 5th on 1-2-3-4-Go! Records and from the sound of the first single it’s going to be a doozey!I’m not even the biggest fan of garage/surf rock but there is something here that has snagged a part of me and drawn me in. It’s more than likely the raw and emotive female vocals – that gets me every time! But really, there is so much more! It is thought out, fun, energizing and yet takes one back to a time…a time…well it could be any period of rock from the 50′s until now!
“The Clams provide a secret ingredient that bind together doo-wop, early rock and R&B, girl group classics, 60′s garage/psych, surf and glints of punk in a way that’s hard to get across in words.”
The Clams have criss-crossed the country touring playing with bands such as Thee Oh Sees, King Khan & BBQ, Nobunny, Harlem, Crocodiles, Fresh & Onlys, Happy Birthday, The Growlers and more and they somehow found time to record a new album. A really great new album!
These Bay Area native will be playing SF’s Noise Pop Festival for the first time at Bender’s Bar on February 25 for FREE! I want to see you there!

“OTTAWA- 12″ Re-Issue (from the groundbreaking 12″ split with JIHAD from 1994!!!) has been delayed longer than what was intended, but is now out! It will be limited to only a 750 copies with an amazing new master and mix plus new artwork (by Matt Weeks and Vincent Chung)! This is one of the darkest and most brutal sounding bands to ever come out of Detroit since Negative Approach. A true hidden classic that blends the speed of early grindcore with a painful hardcore precision… No fucking 90’s emo on this ripper! It includes the only recording done by this band featuring tracks that are long out of print on various comps. (Lengua Armada records) and the split LP (Council Records/ Abiology Records). So many people missed out hearing this record back over the last 16 years… do not sleep on this record!”
This is one of my top ten records of all time. If you like heavy, brutal and political punk like I do, then this is for you too! I already own three copies of the original Jihad/Ottawa split 12″ that came out in 1994 but I’ll be picking this one up to add to my collection as well! With new artwork and a few comp tracks I’ve never heard before – it is a must!
My buddy Chrissy Piper is the photographer for the Free People catalog and they did a feature on their blog. It includes an interview so head on over there and check it out! She is an amazing woman and an amazing photographer. I met her years ago as a punk rock photographer but it’s been really exciting to see her other professional work.
