MARTY KINGS - XVII (TUNNEL OF LOVE's Andy MacBain quietly releases juggernaut of a solo garage punk-pop record)
If ever there was a quintessential garage rock monster of Massachusetts, who haunts and wreaks music havoc on it's denizens across generations, suggesting some type of immortal rock quality about him.. it is Andy Macbain. Boston is lucky to have such a character. Macbains initial fuzzy footprint was left by the humungous chucks of TUNNEL OF LOVE. Ten years ago it was Tunnel Of Love instilling fear in the hearts of young Bostonians, those who dared to venture into the basement. In recent past Macbain has been stirring up shit with his trio THE MONSIEURS who (at least for those who don't remember TOL) are IT for nasty garage pop in Boston. But this project? This is a project - The Marty Kings - Macbain's latest solo venutre is a testament to why this guy needs no one. He will always be a monster of gnarly rock and roll glory and you know it'll be true because it won't matter who is around to participate or witness, Macbain will be not be stopped. People need to hear this and if need be, follow the man into hell.

"Before us, it was all just a bunch of foolin' around" -Gene Wildest, regarding punk-rock
You probably haven't heard of Citizen Blast Kane, this may be due to their singer introducing them as Laser Fag, The Ernest Borg 9, Lobster Dinner, Straight To Video, Creature From The Black Neighborhood, and Reduced Lunch, to name a few... or, maybe you don't go to shows in people's basements. The duo known as Gene Wildest (vocals/sound effects), and Rick More-Anus (gui-tard) are the founders of the group. They embody the party animals in all the 1980s teen sex comedies, in their antics and music, fueled by summer high jinks, cult VHS, and cheap beer.
CBK hail from Hackensack, New Jersey, where Gene was "Hard as a kaiser roll" as the lyricist and frontman in Jumpkick & Fruitpunch. Rick, guitar wild-man, previously shredded with the preachers of sleaze, Theee Bishops as "He Who Cannot Play Guitar", and on bass in Tyrannosaurus Dracula as "Prince Matthew". Being a regular face at the T.DRAC house, Gene started jamming with Rick, promising a shenanigan laden future.
Next, in a small Moleskine® from a stupid girl, Gene mysteriously scribed the name "Chazzy D". Months later he happened upon a young drummer at a Liquor Store show with that very name. Chazzy D is to drums, as Tommy Wiseau is to filmmaking. Most recently, the boys have added Bobert (pronounced Bob-air) aka Bob Shot, as second lead guitar. They are currently recording an album of number 1 hits. Join the fan club and become a Citizen Blast Fan!
"They say that was them, and it was terrifying, and they didn't know anybody else in the locker room" -Sarim Al-Rawi of Liquor Store, on Citizen Blast Kane
