SMALL BROWN BIKE

SMALL BROWN BIKE
fell & found (2011/NO IDEA)
EMO-PUNK. Recorded with J. Robbins, "fell & found" is SMALL BROWN BIKE's 1st full-length with the original lineup since 1999 and continues their fine tradition of passionate and melodic emo-indie-punk that follows along similar lines as HOT WATER MUSIC. Colored vinyl version includes a MP3 download card.
PUNK-ROCK. SMALLTOWN's 2nd full length is "implosion" and as expected, it is a total melodic punk explosion. Eleven more tracks from the same great melodic mod influenced punk found on their last album "the music" full of ultra catchy, anthemic songs with raw tuneful vocals and teeth clenching riffs. Think of the STIFF LITTLE FINGERS, THE CLASH and and LEATHERFACE, as well as current masters like THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM.
read between the lines (2009/PIRATES PRESS)
PUNK-ROCK. These guys from a small town in Sweden are melodic punk, mod, power-pop with an edge. As a follow up to their recent full-length on Deranged Records, this 10" features 4 originals and 3 amazing covers tracks (THE STRIKES, THE STATUES, ELVIS COSTELLO). For fans of STIFF LITTLE FINGERS, BUZZCOCKS, THE CLASH and SWINGIN' UTTERS. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
the music (2005/DERANGED)
PUNK-ROCK. The 1st SMALLTOWN full-length "the music" continues where the "years, months" 7" left off. More of the same great melodic mod influenced punk - ultra catchy, anthemic songs with raw tuneful vocals and teeth clenching riffs. "the music" contains 12 brilliant tracks which are bound to grab a whole lot of attention.
XII (2013/PIRATES PRESS)
PUNK-ROCK. Twelve years ago, when the owner of Pirates Press received SMALLTOWN's very 1st demo all the way from Sweden, he had no idea that he'd get to put out not one, but 2 great releases by this amazing band. This 4 song MLP and the extra track highlighting the insanity of a CD-Record, along with the extra goodies included on the CD, make this a treasure for any SMALLTOWN fan. A "CD-Record" is a vinyl record pressed by a CD manufacturing press that looks and feels like a CD, with a grooved surface; comes with a standard turntable foam adapter for the center-hole of the CD. Limited edition of 500 copies.
PUNK-ROCK. With 2 solid 7"s under their belt, this 3 piece swedish outfit joins the Deranged roster. SMALLTOWN have been compared to the likes of STIFF LITTLE FINGERS and NEWTOWN NEUROTICS and that's probably as good a comparison as it gets. Tuneful melodic punk-rock with slightly raspy vocals.
cominciare a vivere (2009/ADULT CRASH)
HARDCORE-PUNK. "cominciare a vivere" is the 2nd 7" by Italian powerhouse SMART COPS (with members of LA PIOVRA and OHUZARU). Yet again you'll get super catchy hardcore with a touch of lo-fi, garagy punk. SMART COPS bringing to mind CAREER SUICIDE, REGULATIONS and GOVERNMENT WARNING. If you like their previous release on Sorry State Records you'll love this too.
per proteggere e servire (2011/SORRY STATE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Finally, a thick 180gr long-player from the almighty SMART COPS. Already known for crafting some of the most infectious, hook-filled hardcore, Italy's SMART COPS up the catchiness ante even further on their full-length album. While the foundation is still based on tough and aggressive '80s hardcore, the band's songwriting chops have matured considerably, and while it might be shocking at first to hear these guys with such big, glossy production, you'll quickly realize that this release takes everything you already loved about SMART COPS and turns it up to 11.
chaos and lawlessness (2009/MIGHTIER THAN SWORD/THINK FAST)
PUNK-ROCK. Featuring 2/5 of NO TRIGGER and a member of SKOCK NAGASAKI, SMARTBOMB is no stranger to punk-rock, but with the aforementioned bands' hectic touring schedules, SMARTBOMB has been on the backburner and remained one of Massachusetts' best-kept secrets. Their music is much like their name; an explosion of ideas with thought-provoking lyrics that encourage the listener to question everything. Building on influences from a wide range of genres within punk, hardcore, and rock 'n' roll, SMARTBOMB offers an inspiring blend of progressive thinking and progressive punk-rock.
diamond heist (2009/MIGHTIER THAN SWORD/THINK FAST)
PUNK-ROCK. Once dubbed as NO TRIGGER's side project, SMARTBOMB is wasting no time shedding the side project ties and is quickly jumping to the frontlines of the punk-rock scene. This is evident with their hectic touring schedule but most prominently on their debut full length, "diamond heist". With the craft of Jim Siegel (Dropkick Murphys, The Unseen), "diamond heist", which was nearly 4 years in the making, showcases an obvious progression since their debut MCD. "diamond heist" is still very much fast, snotty, and punk!
s/t (2011/PRANK/H:G FACT)
HARDCORE. A remarkable cross border collaboration: SMASH DETOX is Ishiya and Souichi (FORWARD), Mukai ( JUDGEMENT), Zac ( WORLD BURNS TO DEATH) Iizawa (TETSU AREI). You'll get 2 powerful songs that take elements of the intense hardcore sounds of each of their classic Japanese and American Hardcore bands, but combined to a new and unique whole. Created with intense focus and effort, this recalls many of the classic Tokyo hardcore-punk 7"s of the late '90s, but also has the unmistakable mark of Texas Powerhouse hardcore.
