1. THE CHRONICS – “STAY AWAY FROM HERE”
|Posted by moosterrecords on May 30, 2013 at 12:45 AM||comments (0)|
We decided to start keeping up with this blog to let people know whats going on around us. Back when I fell in love with punk rock mailorder in the glory days of Mutant Pop Records and Skull Duggery I would occassionally get little mailers that told me what was happening. To be honest, half the time I hadnt heard of the bands they were talking about but I still got excited. This is our version of that mailer.
THE CONNECTION RELEASE A NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO FROM “LET IT ROCK” THEIR NEW LP
New Hampshire’s The Connection have been ablaze and are keeping right on rolling. Fresh off the path of a new LPand split with The Cry! here on Mooster Records they have another LP almost ready to go! And a new limited addition single via Collector’s Club Records. Here is the new video for their single “Crawling From The Wreckage of a Saturday Night” and there is also a link where you can pick up the new single! Its a smoker!
Wolf-Face continues world domination!
One of the newest members of the Mooster Records family is Wolf-Face from St. Petersburg, FL! There is no way to describe Wolf Face in words without seeing them. The easiest way is gritty punk rock tunes about the movie Teen Wolf(but that doesnt do it justice!) The news outlets in Florida have been giving Wolf Face lots of attention lately and they just finished up a smoking set at their very own curated festival BURGATORY! Below is the ENTIRE live set from BURGATORY. Next, they head back to the studio to put the finishing touches on their debut full length for Mooster! I cant wait!!!
TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME, MOTHER FUCKER!
The Ueckers are here with their brand new full length “Rocket to Wrigley” and they arent stopping there. Pick up a copy of the new record here! If you love baseball, punk rock, Old Style beer, The Ramones, The Chicago Cubs or any combination of those this record is for you. 14 beer soaked baseball punk rock tunes on a shoe string budget and over loaded with buzzsaw guitars. Keep an eye on The Ueckers who will be recording the follow up to “Rocket to Wrigley” this summer in Nashville, TN home to The Nashville Sounds! K-N-U-C-K IF YOU WANNA PLAY TODAY!
Heres the bandcamp page for “Rocket to Wrigley”

Three. “It should be noted at the outset that the biblical authors’ use of the number three is abundantly attested. Indeed, the number three or its compounds occurs hundreds of times. Noah had three sons. Job had three daughters. The Ark of the Covenant contained three sacred objects ‘The gold jar of manna, Aaron’s staff that had budded, and the stone tablets of the covenant. Solomon’s Palace of the Forest of Lebanon was designed with windows ‘placed high in sets of three facing each other. All the doorways had rectangular frames; they were in the front part in sets of three, facing each other’. ‘Three times all your men must appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Tabernacles'” MOOSTER MANIA SHALL SEE A THIRD INSTALLMENT.
With this Summer brings the third chapter of the Mooster Mania series. It will usher in a new dawn for Mooster Records, no more bullshit, no more failure, NO MORE BOWING DOWN TO OTHER RECORD LABELS. I bring before thee with the utmost power and rock n roll the best compilation that our record label has ever beget! With 20 tracks of pure and unadulterated rock fury from bands around the world in digital download format for the unpure and CD format for the slighlty less unpure. The world will finally speak unto us: “MOOSTER MANIA IS RUNNIN WYLLLLLLLLLDDDDDDDDD”!!!!

Ahhhh…the treasures I get in the mail from Ryan at Jolly Ronnie Records!

In the latest mail capers It seems Jolly Ronnie has found two record sleeves from the garbage to send me. 1) Bartok the miraculous Mandarin and 2) Scarlatti – eleven sonatas. I will cherish these with all of my heart! Oh….and he has included with it several copies of his newest release Pink Smoke – “No Party” on cassette tape!!!!!!

THE HOMEWRECKERS are a queer-core/ pop-punk/ rock’n’roll outfit from the salty depths of Brooklyn, NY. Through song and dance; they tackle lost love, cultural identity, imperialism getting in the way of cultural identity, Cuba, cops, gender identity, manic depression, manic salvation, sexual repression, and one night stands. Blending the spirits of Operation Ivy; early 80’s power pop; and Broadway Musicals; The Homewreckers are fucking shit up in a stylish way. Featuring world reknowned illustrator, speaker and feminist author Cristy Road on vocals and guitar.
CITY MOUSE is a punk rock band started by Miski Dee Rodriguez in Lexington, KY and has since relocated to Riverside, CA. They have been described as “Bonnie Tyler’s inner brat wears Chuck Taylors and kicks rocks.” City Mouse has attracted fans of their addictive style of soulful, west coast pop punk rock n roll by relentlessly touring the United States since 2006! They caught the ear of Larry Livermore after their 7″ release on It’s Alive Records and this led to the inclusion on the infamous compilation “The Thing That Ate Larry Livermore” on Adeline Records.
The 7″‘s release will be celebrated with a City Mouse tour of the United States (dates below). Including a show with both artists in New York City Monday, November 5th – @ Tommy’s Tavern! The record will be available at the event along with all other releases by the artists. Can’t make it to the shindig? The 7” can be ordered in2 different colors of vinyl (Translucent HOT PINK and Black) and more info may be found at http://www.moosterrecords.com (http://www.moosterrecords.tk/) . The first 100 orders from the Mooster website will include a copy on translucent hot pink wax, as well as, stickers, a limited edition square button featuring the cover artwork by Cristy Road , and a Mooster Records button and sticker.

AT THE TIME OF PRINT IT WAS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THESE STATEMENTS WERE TRUE AND WERE NOT MADE FOR MALICIOUS INTENT. I APOLOGIZE AND PROMISE TO DO BETTER RESEARCH NEXT TIME! SINCERELY, BRANDON HARROD/MOOSTER RECORDS

COMING SOON!: Pool Party “Teenage Weirdo 7″!!!
So far, it has been ONE CRAZY YEAR!!! We got this little label going and like a snowball it just keeps going and rolling down the hill and getting bigger by the minute! Our first step was to get Miami’s Pool Party on board! I flew to Miami in December and made the deal with the devil myself in the back seat of a sleazy taxi-cab. The result is gonna be a 7” of amazing proportions chock full of sex, sleaze, poetry, drugs, girls, wine, women, pools, parties, and most importantly Creep Guirdo, Dick Dumb, Hand Gloveless, and Toobs Malloy! 4 human cartoon characters that put on a rippin’ show!!! See….
The “Teenage Weirdo” 7″ is four songs about various topics ranging from “not crying, sniffing hair, underwear, sacrilege, and blasphemy” All 4 songs are bangers and are gonna leave you soaking wet! It also features backups from a very super, secret, special guest who goes by the name of EL Cheapo Tycoon to preserve his anonymity! All of this coming to you on at least 3 different colors of wax! Maybe more….
I am going to startup pre-orders in a couple of weeks and you can secure yourself some extra special goodies, as well as, a specific color of wax! We are hitting the ground runnin’ folks try to keep up!!

CHECK OUT THE POST HERE!
MOOSTER RECORDS WELCOMES NICK MINNOW!!!!
Mooster Records would like to announce the addition of Nick Minnow to our stable of artists! Nick comes to us from the lower left portion of the mitten of Michigan. Besides being a member of countless bands (The Minnows, Paris Airshow Disaster, CB Tucker Band, The Bottom Boys, Brandon Harrod and The Young Turks, and The Freebase Masons) he is also a close personal friend of everyone at Mooster Records, and also a former resident of the palace known as Hanafuda Manor where our fledgling label got it’s start.
Nick and Brandon (Mooster Records Head Honcho) semi-successfully ran “Pop Monster Records: Dirty South” in 2007-2008. He is a multi-instrumentalist that brings an amazing arsenal of music knowledge and equipment to the table, as well as an unwavering love for TACOS!
Nick’s first record with Mooster will be the Free Jazz/Electronic/Mood/Wobble Funk/ Rock exploration of “Plant Music: “An Untested Hypothesis)”. This unique EP is a concoction of electronic blips, prog-esque drum patterns and amazing song structures devised to stimulate those silent friends that wait patiently for hydration in the corner of your living room. But careful kids! As it says in the name, this is an “untested hypothesis”. Mooster Records will not be responsible for any viridiplantae destruction!
Nick Minnow presents: “Plant Music: “An Untested Hypothesis)” will be available before the end of February!
