Last American Buffalo
Last American Buffalo
Los Angeles based Rock'n"Roll group Last American Buffalo was originally founded by lead singer Kevin Compton. In 2011 he joined with multi-instrumentalist Josh Grolemund and Bassist Vic Artur. Together with Grammy nominated producer Billy Mohler they released several EP's and singles. In the fall of 2012 they released "Here She Comes" their most Rock'n'Roll inspired effort to date, and their first self produced work.
Around that same time Kevin began collaborating with singer/guitarist Bryce Wayt of the GT350's, who then officially joined the band as an additional songwriter and frontman, a la Joe Walsh. Drawing inspiration from Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker to Tom Petty, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin (and a little AC/DC for good measure), they took to the studio to write and record their first full length Album, scheduled to be released in July 2013.
"Sometimes we forget where we came from, and in an era of manufactured music, Last American Buffalo reminds us that it's the bluesy chords, the groovy beats, and the rebel poetry that are the ingredients to organic rock & roll."
Jamie Harvey - grammy.com

"The least punk band that I like the most"

Irontom
Irontom
IRONTOM emerged at the beginning of the year with an intent on forging a presence for themselves on the Los Angeles music scene. With influences ranging from The Arctic Monkeys to Led Zeppelin, the music exhibits a variety of styles and sounds on top of a classic sensibility for song writing. The personalities of each of the five musicians combine to form an undeniably powerful and energetic sound.
Wake Up Lucid
Wake Up Lucid
There’s visceral and then there’s Wake Up Lucid. The L.A.-based trio of cousins — Ryan, Ian and Jamie Baca — have been making not-so-nice for about five years now, with two EPs and the 2012 full-length “Feel It” outlining their agenda to make heavy blues so dangerous it should be on a do-not-fly list. Live, they play with the lights down low but everything else turned up, leaving bleeding ears to sort out the beauty in their muck and mire. And there is beauty, especially on Wake Up Lucid’s forthcoming EP “Gone With the Night.” More than their previous work, their 30 minutes(!) of new music reveals a broader dynamic, crystallized on the writerly, acoustic-electric title track. The galloping “White Collar Love” is a concise, blue-collar single; the previously teased “I Want” tests high for toxicity; and then there is “Get F*cked,” a 9-minute stew that simmers and then boils over in apoplexy. No surprise that Wake Up Lucid does their studio work with another purveyor of uncompromising heavy music, Joe Cardamone of the Icarus Line. There, “Get F*cked” is a high compliment. -

“If their demos are any indication of what’s in store, we’re expecting
raunchy rock at it’s best.”
- ROLLING STONE

“Growling rock n’ roll…”
– NYLON MAGAZINE

“Clearly all this band does is feel, and that is exactly what the audience
will do when listening to this album”
– FILTER MAGAZINE

“Cousins Ryan, Ian, and Jamie Baca play with the bleary-eyed intensity of
a late 60’s biker-band combo, recalling both the blues rock of the early
Stones and the proto-punk of the Stooges.”
– iTUNES

For those still reeling from the White Stripes’ split, Wake Up Lucid is
here to help ease the pain with savage guitar riffs and thunderous drums
coated in garage grit. “I want to howl like the wind tonight,” Baca sings
on “You & I,” and for five too-short songs, his weathered vocals do just
that.
- LOS ANGELES TIMES

“…it’s exactly the kinda thing your folks might’ve been listening to at
the moment of your conception.”
- MY OLD KENTUCKY BLOG
the crazy squeeze
Not since the Traveling Wilburys has there been a supergroup as universally anticipated as The Crazy Squeeze. If you were into the underground punk/rock n' roll scene in the late '90s and early 2000s, you know who these guys are. You own their records. You bought them shots. You friended them on Myspace. And now they have joined forces to create a veritable justice league of punk rock! Where else but in Hollywood could Johnny Witmer (of The Stitches), Frankie Delmane (of Now Wave faves the Teenage Frames), Chris B. (of the Richmond Sluts), and Johnny Sleeper (of the Superbees) have come together to combine their prodigious & complementary talents for the betterment of the free world?!

The Crazy Squeeze - now with Dat Ngo ex-Super Bees in on bass - are everything you'd expect and then some. Combining vintage glam wham-bam (New York Dolls, Slade) with straight-up rockin' punk, their sound is pure raunchy fun with hooks out the wazoo. You know: music for fucking! It's just got that swagger. Of course Witmer is on fire on guitar, doing the Berry/Thunders thing like he was born for it (because, ya know, he was!). And with the criminally underrated songwriter Delmane involved, you know the songs are gonna be aces. If you like high-energy, sing-along rock n' roll with ripping guitars and an irresistible backbeat, go straight to "Boys Are Gonna Be Here Soon" and "Out of My Head" and fall in love! Yes, sir! "All Lies" slows the tempo and brings a harder edge, but it proves to be equally great. With the release of this full-length album the Crazy Squeeze are poised to be the next big thing in punk rock n' roll. If you enjoyed the Dolls, Joneses, or any of these guys' old bands, it's time to get on board the Crazy Squeeze bandwagon. Pour yourself a hard drink, and shake it! - Lord Rutledge (Faster and Louder)
