Cheap Time
Cheap Time have come a long way in the short time they've been around, and it's with great pleasure that we finally have the culmination of their efforts distilled into the epic full-length sitting here before us. Even back in Jeff's formative days with his solo project, the Jeffrey Novak One Man Band, it was evident that he had so much more to give to the rock'n'roll underworld than that, or his contribution in the Rat Traps could suggest. Even despite the adrenaline-crazed sounds he was spewing forth, drumstick in guitar strumming hand, you can still marvel at the energy levels frantic enough to jump start a semi truck. In his latest creation, Cheap Time is a refined power pop vehicle that gleans the irresistible glittery nuances from all the right hiding spots for modern inspiration, and blasts them forth onto the futuristic palette of today's glam-savvy punk fans to absorb while scrambling to pick up the last scraps of non-comped Velvet Tinmine tracks still floating around.

As they displayed so brashly on their debut 7" on Sweet Rot last year, and their face-smashing follow-up Handy Man 7" on Douche Master earlier this year, Cheap Time still holds their Redd Kross influence close to their heart. Yet with further expansion on the 1976-era fork in the road artistic direction, they belligerently steer themselves into unclassifiable categories, akin to when the newly marketed 'punk' label was still being applied to atypical bands like The Quick, Television, The Fast and Milk 'n Cookies, much to the confusion of the record-buying public. While Cheap Time may inconspicuously take more cues from the Dickies, Sparks and Zolar X than anyone else these days, it's their unique assembly of all these incorrigible styles into one cohesive sounding record that makes them rise above the overall current wave of pop music, and into the clear forefront of modern rock'n'roll. As an album full of intensely buzzing hits and virtually no misses, its impact is immediate and irreversible and pulls the sticky sweet reduction of all these long-forgotten styles into one of the tightest and most enjoyable debut LPs in recent memory.

With Jeff Novak's short-lived Peoploids demos now re-recorded for the Cheap Time LP, also included is the crowd favorite "People Talk" (by the Jack Oblivian-penned late 80s band, The End), which was given new life, along with a boatload of viciously steaming pop hits surely destined for futuristic radio playlists on far away planets. The energy levels are insurmountable, the songs are simply unstoppable, and the damage they will do to the pop underworld is recklessly unavoidable. Cheap Time have the style, the spirit and the guts to tour like crazy and go far, so it's without any further hesitation that you lift up your lazy ass and pick up a copy of their remarkable contemporary touchstone of punk/pop brilliance before your little sister is downloading the tracks into her dirty diapers, and Jeff enters his hopefully unnecessary Cockney Rebel phase. Of course, I'm kidding, but with the doors blown wide open like they have been in the last few years, anything is possible, and being bowled over by new sounds is still as refreshing as ever before.
The Tills
An original psychedelic pop & rock extravaganza performed by Harry Harrison (Vocals, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Bass), Joshua Martier (Vocals, Drums, Rhythm Guitar), Jesse Meyers (Vocals, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Bass), and Tom Peters (Vocals, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Bass, Drums).

The Tills have been hailed for their energetic, uninhibited live performances by local magazines and fans alike. For a group that performs solely original music it is breathtaking to find fans singing along to their favorite hits as The Tills destroy their instruments and their bodies on stage. From nudity on and off the stage to violent reckless abandon, a live Tills performance is an experience to be remembered.
The Panels
The Panels are Metal with fabric and wood.
Future West
“Blazing post punk flavored rock and roll with a blast of Northwest fuzz”

Future West is a band of rock and roll veterans that bring their history with them like the travelling minstrels from ages past. Lived-in experience influences the band and their collective histories write themselves in the songs. From the goth punk and hardcore styles of Southern CA, to the turn it up attitude of Portland OR's underground rock scene, to the raw roots of Memphis TN, to the post punk of England, to the underground punk of Florida. Here is a band that brings with them the wisdom of ages that conveys true rock and roll spirit in more or less three chords.

Influenced by the likes of the Gun Club, The Minutemen, The Clash, Joy Division, Bad Brains, Velvet Underground, Nick Cave, The Fall, The Wipers, Dead Moon, MC5, Siouxie and the Banshees, X, Born Against, Thin Lizzy, Can, and countless others, this is a band that while staying true to the spirit of rock and roll, is too vast to be pigeonholed into any one genre. Their debut album is being recorded at HiZ, LowZ Studio and should be released by Jan 1, 2014.
