About Scattered Hamlet

Scattered Hamlet is honky tonk metal mixed with a handful of cheap trucker speed with enough octane to survive a nuclear war. Created to capture the essence of growing up in the country while giving nods to the original classic rock and outlaw country pioneers, Scattered Hamlet is one part Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet and one part Motorhead and Down, featuring a sleazy southern influence laced with heavy rock elements.

Scattered Hamlet’s influences range from Southern rock to groove metal to doom metal with the attitude of punk rock. With humble origins all across the US and a relentless touring schedule of 100+ shows, the band makes no apologies for the equal love of Harley Davidsons, honky tonks, Les Pauls, Marshalls, shotguns and classic American symbolism.

Their debut full length album, Skeleton Dixie, was
produced by two time Grammy nominated producer Jason Donaghy (Rob Zombie, John 5, The Murder Dolls) and mastered by legend Howie Weinberg (Pantera, Slayer, White Zombie, Danzig). The band has amassed a strong underground following called “Hell Riders” who maintain their own “chapters” (fan clubs) independent of the band.

The band’s new album, Swamp Rebel Machine, is out November 4th via Black Moon Productions. It was produced and mixed by Jason Donaghy and Jake Rodenhouse and contains 11 supercharged anthems.

About Rikk Agnew

With the October 14th release of The Rikk Agnew Band’s Learn on Frontier Records, it’s become obvious to anyone who has been paying attention to punk rock that Rikk Agnew is finally, unequivocally and triumphantly back! The twelve songs on the LP are prototypically Agnew – raw, brash and in-your-face and harken back to the beginning of his musical career more than 30 years ago.

Born in Fullerton, CA, the quiet and shy Rikk learned to play guitar in his bedroom in a family that valued music alongside brothers Frank and Alfie. Rikk soon got the reputation of being the best guitarist in the Southern California hardcore scene circa ’79, which was ground zero for OC punk rock. Beginning with stints in Social Distortion (more on those guys later) and legendary OC punk bands The Detours and Naughty Women, Rikk came of age shortly thereafter when he joined what would become known as the “classic” lineup in the hardcore band, Adolescents. Their eponymous debut album released in 1981 on Frontier Records (also known as the Blue Album) featured many of Rikk’s most legendary songs. Both fans and critics alike went bonkers over the album that spawned classic punk anthems like “Amoeba” and “Kids of the Black Hole”* as well as Rikk’s signature guitar sound.

Rikk left the Adolescents shortly after the release of the Blue Album and, after seeing a performance by goth/deathrock band Christian Death, joined the band and co-wrote its seminal album Only Theater of Pain, also released on Frontier Records in 1982. Yet it was Rikk’s desire to record only his own songs that spawned one of the most unexpected and audacious records of the punk era – his debut solo album, written, sung and entirely played only by Rikk. This was an absolutely unheard of concept in the hardcore scene but the aptly titled, All By Myself, (yes, Frontier Records again!) was praised by critics and fans alike. It’s a testament to why Rikk is known as the “Brian Wilson of punk” according to Adolescents’ founding member Steve Soto.

Looking back on it now, in the span of two short years, Rikk recorded one of the most iconic hardcore punk albums of all time, wrote, played on and recorded one of the most seminal goth albums ever, and released the first solo album by a member of a punk band – ever. All before his 25th birthday!

From 1983 to the mid-2000s, Rikk played in a virtual who’s who of OC hardcore bands, almost too numerous to mention. Most impressive was his time spent in the iconic OC punk band D.I. on releases Team Good, Ancient Artifacts and Horse Bites Dog before leaving in 1987. Stints in an Adolescents reunion, an ADZ project with Tony Cadena of the Adolescents in the mid-eighties led to more solo recording into the nineties. In 2000, Rikk joined yet another Adolescents reunion, toured with the reunited goth outfit 45 Grave, played guitar in Poop and a took part in a reunion of OC’s criminally unheralded The Detours.

Through it all, Rikk’s impressive musical output and drive was derailed by decades of alcoholism, drug abuse, and depression. His story has been well chronicled, but a 2010 health scare kickstarted his endeavor to get sober and become healthy, which he remains, thankfully, to this day.

Due partially to this major life changing achievement, Rikk founded The Rikk Agnew band — featuring Gitane DeMone (vocals), Sam Hare (vocals), Justin Parnell (drums), and Gregory A. Watson (bass) — which has become his constant musical focus. What’s more, Learn is being released on Frontier Records, home of the most important recordings of his impressive career. So perhaps lightning has struck twice (or, in fact, three or four times) for and he really did Learn.

About WASI

Merilou and Jessie teamed up in high school after Merilou booked a show with a non-existent band. Under the moniker The Midol Poppers, they learned their instruments and wrote 30 minutes worth of punk songs that stemmed from the stories of their broken homes and outsider attitude. After their first show, they started writing and rehearsing just to play as often as they could — from high school themed parties to acoustic sets at the park. Without a plan but with a craving to create their own space away from teenage social structures and the norm, the duo recorded their songs at the Fullerton College recording studio and then self-promoted themselves by approaching bystanders with a pair of headphones and their music in hand.

Their debut EP, Bleed Pop, was released May 2015. They have shared the stage with artists such as Shiny Toy Guns, The Mowgli’s and K. Flay, have played select dates on the Vans Warped Tour, have performed at several LGBTQ Pride Festivals throughout the West coast and have been listed as She Wired’s “Top 10 Queer and Female Fronted Bands You Need to Know Right Now.” Live, they are joined by drummer Max Szullozi and guitarist/vocalist Charlie Moon.  

Their latest tracks, “Mama’s Gonna Get You” and “Superhero,” were produced by Shelby Archer, Paul Laliberte and Jeff Laliberte from Red Bull Records’ New Beat Fund. WASI continues to garner a loyal following in the LGBTQ and feminist music scenes as they contagiously spread their DIY work ethic, enthusiastic attitude and uplifting melodies, touching those are trying to be understood in their own tender time.

This Wednesday, September 28 on SuicideGirls Radio, hosts Nicole Powers and Bradley Suicide will be joined by LA hard rockers Budderside, who’ve just released their self-titled debut album. The band may be new, but they have excellent pedigree. Frontman Patrick Stone has done stinks with Adler’s Appetite, Velvet Revolver, and Quiet Riot. And the band’s album was produced by Paul Inder Kilmister (son of Lemmy Kilmister).

You can listen – and watch – SuicideGirls Radio live on Wednesday nights from 8 til 9 PM at our state-of-the-art, all digital home: zinna.tv

About Budderside

Doused in the (street) waters of Los Angeles, California, gritty hard rockers Budderside are fronted by Patrick Stone, who was with the likes of Quiet Riot, Velvet Revolver and Adler’s Appetite before realizing the ultimate dream of his own band and singing his own songs to the world. Enter Michael “The Stoneman” Stone on bass, Rich Sacco on drums and Johnny Santoro, (Still Standing, Rock Sugar) on guitar to form a rock-solid band of brothers with instantly unbreakable bonds.

Budderside’s searing-hot, self-titled debut album, Budderside, was released on September 23, 2016 via Motörhead Music/UDR. To record it, their manager, Todd Singerman of Singerman Entertainment (Motörhead), ensured the band went into Rosewood Strat Studio with producer Paul Inder Kilmister (son of Lemmy Kilmister).

Budderside vocalist Patrick Stone’s drive and verve come from a need to make sense of all life’s challenges – politics, sex, philosophy, rage, love, light, sound, senses – and express them all with one unifying current racing through it all – electricity, and Stone is far from encumbered by any perceived ‘limitations’ of a rock band more than he is empowered by the freedom to explore.

That seeker-spirit sees Budderside go from the thick, thumping, leather-clad rock riffery of “The Envelope” to the ska-tinted mobility of “Ska-Bra” which also features Motörhead’s Phil Campbell on guitar. There’s the bendy, grungy intoxication of “X-Girlfriend,” the big-stage orchestral grandiosity of “Can’t Wrap My Head Around You” and the thicker, space-fuzzy buzz-riff of “Open Relationship”… which all serve to say that whatever sonic broadsword Budderside want to swing, they swing with freedom and verve.

“Human beings don’t cultivate ideas.
On the contrary… ideas cultivate us.”
— Dr. Wrong, Fight Club 2

The years haven’t been kind to Sebastian, aka The Narrator, aka the co-founder of Fight Club. Having traded his position as leader of Project Mayhem — an underground organization inspired by the Cacophony Society and its precursor the Suicide Club — for all the trappings of the American dream, Sebastian now has a 9 to 5 job, a wife, a home and a kid, and is the father he vowed he’d never become. Trapped in the mundanity of this seemingly cookie-cutter life, Sebastian seeks solace in his psychiatrist, Dr. Wrong, and the prescription pills he pedals. Meanwhile, Tyler Durden, Sebastian’s stalwartly subversive alter-ego, has been biding his time, plotting his comeback to wreak havoc on a society that is, for the most part, populated by sheep in need of a shepherd, or a surrogate father as writer, mythologist and philosopher Joseph Campbell might say. And thus, a new installment of junior-arsonist-turned-adult-novelist Chuck Palahniuk’s iconic Fight Club begins.

Taking comic book form, the long-awaited and much-anticipated sequel to the original 1996 Fight Club novel (on which David Fincher’s 1999 movie was based) first hit stores in May, 2015. The ten-part series paired Palahniuk’s dialog and plot with art by Cameron Stewart (whose credits include Batman, Batgirl, Catwoman, Assassin’s Creed and SuicideGirls’ own comic series, to name but a few). This sequel was something that Palahniuk resisted for many years. However, ideas sometimes have a life of their own, and this one was pulling Palahniuk back to Project Mayhem’s home on Paper Street. Now, as the series is being collected and bound together as a hardcover graphic novel (out June 28 via Dark Horse Comics), Palahnuik is working on the third installment of an idea, which like Tyler Durden, refuses to die. We caught up with Palahniuk by phone to find out more…
