Timmy's Organism – I'm on a Hunt 7" (DMR 037)
Finally! The King of Weird Punk finds himself on Douche Master. If there were a budget rock hall of fame, Timmy Vulgar would almost have to be one of the first inductees. It's always a thrill to see what Timmy will do next, either in a studio or perhaps walking down the street. The A side is grimy as hell and sounds a bit like early Dead Boys. B side carries a similar vibe but with a healthy dose of heroine soaked early Bad Seeds. 100 on blue vinyl. Edition of 600. April 13, 2010.
The Half Rats – For the Sake of Love 7" (DMR 038).
Sans objectivity, I must freely admit that I fucking love this record! TJ lives in Chicago and plays in CoCoComa. The other dudes are somewhere in Indiana. The Half Rats are sort of Doo-wopish on a poor man's recording budget. It's catchy as hell but not overly joyful or silly. An undeniable sixties vibe and great vocal hooks. 100 on blue/white swirled vinyl. Edition of 600. April 13, 2010.
King Louie's Missing Monuments - Black Rainbow 7" (DMR 039).
This record is sort of the direction Louie was going with Loose Diamonds,but without all the genre hopping. This stuff is boogie free, straight forward, hook laden rock n' roll. He told us before we heard it that it was the catchiest stuff he'd worked on in years, and he was true to his word. The only thing more exciting than this single is the LP they're about to start recording. Hell Yes! 100 on white vinyl. Edition of 1000. April 13, 2010. www.douchemasterrecords.com
