Black Beach bassist and all around super-human Ben Semeta has collaborated with 456 Records, Boston Hassle, and yours truly to bring you the behemoth House of the Rising Fuzz: A Boston Rock & Roll Compilation. The comp features 10 local face-melters in Boston's burgeoning garage rock empire including New Highway Hymnal, The Monsieurs, Black Beach, Midriffs, Miami Doritos, Nice Guys, Dinoczar, Barbazons (formerly The Fagettes), Televibes, and Creaturos. Copies went on sale at this years phenomenal Fuzztival festival hosted by Illegally Blind at the Middle East earlier this month. Limited edition color vinyl is all sold out (sorry folks!) but black vinyl copies are still available for order via the House of the Rising Fuzz Bandcamp page.
Preview the tracks below and head over to order your own copy via Bandcamp before they're all gone!
Its been three (3) lovely ( ♥ ) years at the Middlesex Lounge but as they say, all good things must come to an end. Due to uncontrollable circumstances we will no longer be able to host our monthly showcase that has been pRIMORDIAL sOUNDS at said venue. While future plans have yet to be fully formed we would like to present you with one more face melting helping of some of our favorite bands, such as...
Michael Leyden (of Whistle Jacket)
Hands and Knees
New England Patriots
ALL the proceeds from this show will go to a special compilation, LIVE AT MIDDLESEX LOUNGE! Thats right, the whole night is being recorded for a real deal LP!
5pm-8pm show is FREE

Hey friends! We've got a new gig over at River Gods (125 River Street, Cambridge) spinning tunes! Our next show is Monday September 15th at 9pm.

Friends! We are beyond excited to announce our latest release, PS009 ~ NICE GUYS "L.A.P.D" out August 12th on cassette with digital download!
Nice Guys are weed punks Alex, Matt, Jake and Cam, and L.A.P.D. is their ragged love letter to Allston Massachusetts. Recorded by local analog-ist Ian Doerr, it's a fierce and gritty homage to the things that make life worth living, namely weed, booze, and snacks. Don't be surprised if the raw intensity of tracks such as "Herb Chambers" or "Street Surfer" tear your speakers to shreds, or if the smell of weed smoke and stale beer starts emanating from your tape deck. Nice Guys have always been one of our favorite Boston acts, and we are extremely psyched to share their new EP with you!
