BOUND BY LAW



Bound By Law is a Danish country group with roots solidly planted in the heritage of traditional American country, blues and bluegrass. The sound is rough, dusty and honest, and the lyrical universe is centered around the dark and irrational aspects of modern life. If you like the old outlaws of the genre, perhaps Bound By Law is a band for you.

DOG HAND STRING BAND [2017] Tooth n Nail



Hailing from Leeds, UK and forming in late 2015, then placed on feared permanent hiatus, due to the banjo player's hand gettin 'bit off by a damn mutt'. The band, consisting mainly of members of Bootscraper, Jake and the Jellyfish, Bad Knaves and China Shop Bull, forthwith dubbed themselves Dog Hand String Band. Now they're back with working fingers, ravenous hunger, righteous ire and sinister new powers.

What is a dog hand? Poison soaked murder ballad, backwoods bluegrass, horror folk. Liquor, corruption and bad juju. Imbibe at own risk.



01 - Intro/Blood Moon Blues
02 - Threw You In The Well
03 - Aristabano Mountain Bar
04 - Gin Shop Hollow
05 - Long Live The Dead
06 - Behold The Crow

"Tooth n Nail" was recorded entirely live in a mere 2 hours, no money, no edits, no bullshit, representing the awful cacophony you'll see live. Mixed by the band's idiot banjo player/singer and mastered on the promise of a place to stay to bide out the coming apocalypse. This is the first Dog Hand. There is another on its way. Free to download. Due dirt for true devils.

THE MYSTERY GIRLS [1983] Rock n' Roll With The Mystery Girls



Back in 1983, Mr. Ratboy was Brian Blade – the guitarist for The Mystery Girls, a Shangri-Las/Dolls/Modern Lovers-influenced combo whose only recorded legacy is a very rare acetate 33 RPM single, limited to only 5 copies with a xeroxed cover. The four tracks featured here are the far-superior demos recorded in Switzerland with a full band that included not only the future World Famous Mr. Ratboy, but also the enigmatic Zmotron, who went on to play in an early incarnation of The Dogs D’Amour under the name Mark Draxx.

DIRT SEARCH HEADLIGHT [1994] Year 2


Taking their name, as you do, from an old Hoover vacuum model, Dirt Search Headlight was formed circa 1992 following the demise of Philly’s Red Herring and Carnival of Shame. The band featured future Sour Jazz singer Mr. Popular (Lou Paris) and drummer Splat Action (Pat Fitzgerald), alongside guitarist Mark Telling and bass player Spencer Lloyd. These tracks were recorded circa 1994 by Kramer at Noise New Jersey. The band fell apart before anything was released, but the song “Australia” did end up as the theme of the very first X Games TV special on ESPN. CLICK HERE for live footage from 1993.

MR. RATBOY [1998] A Gift From Mr. Ratboy


"The debut solo effort from Mr. Ratboy (Sour Jazz, Pillbox, Motorcycle Boy, Marky Ramone...) is about as perfect a Rock N' Roll record as you are likely to find in such a mess of a decade. As Pillbox's sonic architect, Mr. Ratboy reveals himself capable of writing and playing more complicated and subtle music, delicate piano, feedback and acres of space to strange melodic choruses."  — Trouser Press

Between Mr. Ratboy leaving Motorcycle Boy and joining Marky Ramone’s Intruders, there was the mighty Pillbox. Together with vocalist Chris Barry (ex- 222s & 39 Steps), bassist Johnny Baum, and Screamin’ Joe Rizzo on drums, Pillbox repeatedly proved to be a antidotal neighbourhood threat to D-Generation. Their first album ‘Jimbo’s Clown Room’ was released in 1993 on the Circumstantial label and became an instant classic amongst those who regarded it as an instant classic.

SOUR JAZZ

Lou Paris (Mr. Popular), Mark Rubenstein (Cowboy Mark), Gilbert Avondet (Mr. Ratboy), Pat Fitzgerald (Splat Action)


Sour Jazz is a New York rock band formed by four punk rock lifers down the lower East Side at the dog-end of the last century. Having logged time with legends like Marky Ramone, Cheetah Chrome and Ian Hunter among many others, these well-traveled veterans’ original goal was to simply play music as good as their heroes – the Saints, Radio Birdman, Lou Reed, Mott the Hoople and the Stooges – and ignore the whims and fashions of a music industry which was surely bound to ignore them in return.

They’d have been happy to be a footnote.

Taking their name from a misprint on a Beasts of Bourbon bootleg (namely a mash-up of their seminal Sour Mash and Axeman’s Jazz LPs), Sour Jazz embraced the folly and futility of a life in rock from the beginning. So after numerous recordings and live performances, three labels and a couple of managers, Sour Jazz somehow survives. It’s somewhat remarkable that the band is still here, the original lineup scattered around the world but still, miraculously, intact.

Sour Jazz is led by the world-famous Tokyo-based guitarist Mr. Ratboy, whose lean, incisive tone provides the perfect counterpart to scissor-legged singer Mr. Popular’s tales of urban sleaze. And of course, the combo’s heart beats to the rhythm of bassist Cowboy Mark and drummer Splat Action, together forming a singular engine room of V8 proportion.


1. [2011] Homage To Catatonia


In June 2010, SOUR JAZZ stumbled through a series of headlining gigs in Spain, touring in support of their album, 'American Seizure.'  For this tour, SOUR JAZZ were joined by very special guest, DANIEL REY, on guitar. Apart from producing the last two SOUR JAZZ albums -- 'Rock & Roll Ligger' and 'American Seizure' -- Daniel has previously played with and produced bands such as The Ramones, Ronnie Spector, Iggy Pop, Keith Richards, Richard Hell, The Misfits, Nashville Pussy and countless others. Never before had so much cunning talent shared one stage. Downright historical, that's what it was. One for the history books, one for bleary-eyed fans to look back upon with equal parts fondness and disbelief. Now, SOUR JAZZ invites you to enjoy a stunning array of mega-hits from their heroically glorious back catalogue -- songs of love, songs of despair, songs of filth and of tenderness and longing. Recorded live at Sala de Apolo in Barcelona on 16 June 2010, this official live release should do the job of seriously upsetting your neighbours.

The Ugly Kings are four powerhouse blues rockers drawing influence from an eclectic and dynamic musical background. They offer a powerful injection of energy and emotion to the modern rock scene, formulating what can only be described as power blues. The catchy riffs and foot stomping rhythm lay the foundations for the deep reaching and soulful emotive vocals.

Having one mini-album (Of Sins) & a 7" single (Promised Land) under their belt already, they are thrilled to sign with Kozmik Artifactz for the release of their debut full length album in early 2018.

The Ugly Kings have supported Airbourne on their successful sold out east coast Australia tour in January 2017 with great reviews. They also supported Rival Sons in 2016 on their first Australia headline side-show in Melbourne during the Black Sabbath 'The End' World Tour.

The Ugly Kings offer a stripped down but powerful injection of energy and emotion to the modern rock scene; formulating what can only be described as ‘Power Blues’.

Memorable beats, thunderous bass lines and an electrifying barrage of bluesy ‘grit’ riffs tied with raw and emotive vocals.

"Loud, heavy, slightly-sludgy classic rock meets blues with a modern bend, played by a band that swaggered about the stage with a distinct, but subtle, air of cool. By the end, Sydney was more than happy to learn words on the fly and sing along when the front man held his mic over the mosh. The Ugly Kings are well-versed in the art of restraint, they know when to move and make the crowd get on their feet, and when to step back and let the
music do the talking." - Australian Guitar

"It’s not often you see a band have the crowd so excited and receptive by the second song in the way The Ugly Kings do with such an original sound. Only to be described as The Ugly Kings!" - Ryan O’Keefe (Airbourne Drummer)

"Great show! The Ugly Kings have really got their own thing going on and it rocks! I love all the dynamics, pushing and pulling and then always smashing it out. Great intensity and power." - Joel O’Keefe (Airbourne Frontman & Lead Guitarist)

"Thick, groove induced chords, deep baritone vocals and a harden-the-fuck-up ethos" - Phantom's Way

"Promised Land, a four-minute beast that sounds like the Rival Sons and the Graveltones going head-to-head with John Bonham and Jim Morrison. With multiple riffs and deft twists and turns, it sounds fantastic.." - SonicAbuse

"Promised Land ..bounces, pushes and crawls like a wounded beast treading through a boneyard. Well, that is, right up till the scream of rage as a flock of vulturish guitars is disturbed beyond all reason. This is an interesting and clever composition." - Raw Ramp

WhiteNails To Release Awesome Debut "First Trip" on Limited Edition Vinyl



Through a mutual love of Black Sabbath the boys of WhiteNails met one fateful evening in 2016. After a few beers and shots of whiskey they decided they needed to throw on the guitars and see what kind of noise would come forth. Hence the birth of WhiteNails. Five dudes with an appetite for loud, heavy rock and roll.

Quebec's stoner rock band, influenced by the sounds of Pentagram, Black Sabbath and Kyuss, WhiteNails adds a psychedelic touch to their debut First Trip. Heavy riffs are not lacking on this business card which has received a very positive critical reception. Add a very seventies visual and you have a band that quickly gets a top spot on the scene.



"WhiteNails’ Frankenstein mix of up-tempo grooves, infectiously full vocal delivery and monster riffs was just so out of the blue…every section of every song reveals some new touchstone.  Was that Queens of the Stone Age?  Turbonegro?  Church of Misery?  Late 80s Ozzy?  Windhand?  WTF??!!?  It’s like someone threw my record collection in a food processor set to half-speed and laid the resulting furor to tape." - Ripple Music

Hard driving, party fuelled, loud as hell, bastards of rock n roll playing some of the best solid riff-driven 70s Rock / Psych / Stoner / Doom you'll ever hear, this album is bloody awesome, one of the best albums I've heard this year, full on aural assault from the get go and an absolute must for your collection. Highly recommended.
