CRAZY &THE BRAINS:
Crazy & the Brains is the brainchild of Chris Urban and Jeff Rubin – two punks whose previous bandmates bailed on them, leaving them with a guitar and a stolen (err appropriated) xylophone. In the most punk of punk spirits they made do with what they had and forged on creating a new band and a proving that doing whatever you damn well please will always be where it’s at. Recently they enlisted brothers Brett and Lawrence Miller on bass and drums and rounded out their band and their sound going from their anti-folk roots to a newer blast-core sound (two genres I believe they invented). If you haven’t seen these guys live you are doing your self a disservice cause they bring the party where ever they go. They’re like the Atlanta of New Jersey (if that makes any sense).
THE YOUNG LEAVES:
Formed in 2006, The Young Leaves are a 3-piece indie rock band from Holliston, MA. Taking influence from bands such as Dinosaur Jr., Archers of Loaf, and Husker Du, The Young Leaves play loud, fast, and powerful sludge-pop that will make you think you traveled back in time to 1994. All of our records are available for FREE at our Bandcamp page (http://theyoungleaves.bandcamp.com/)
When I think of 1970s era New York I think of movies like Taxi Driver and The Warriors. I think of bands like Richard Hell & The Voidoids and The Ramones. I think of crime, switchblades, guitars, dark alleys, pogoing, serial killers and ‘ol Sid offing Nancy. Lately though I have a new thing I think of when I thing of that era…The Disconnects. Crazy thing is these guys are straight outta Neptune NJ circa two thousand and now. But those’re just incidental details baby. The Disconnects are out to disprove the “Thunders Principle” and that you can in fact put your arms round a memory. And for as much as BLR loves Johnny, he was wrong about at least that one thing. So if you’re still rockin’ a leather jacket and longing for the days when Times Square wasn’t a fun place to take the kids, then The Disconnects are your new favorite band.

Inertia. started out as a crust/hardcore side project by Stephen Dzikowski (Departures) and Ryan Treppedi (Hollow-Eyed). On “New Lows To Bear Upon A Barren Heart” the pair have evolved their sound past the boundaries of any sub-genre concentrating on freedom of expression above all else. One of the most interesting aspects of their sound is that it’s bourn out of just two people. Picture Simon and Garfunkel but with slightly more power violence.
