Westcoast Worldwide Records promos

BegForLife – Doomed (2009)
Hardcore made in Arizona, influenced by metal, choruses fit for mosh-pits, fury and attitude: these are BegForLife, a band that, in my opinion, is heavily underrated, compared to other second-hand bands of so colled „hardcore”. Doomed was released by Westcoast Worldwide Records in 2009 and has 10 tracks. The album was produced by Mike Hood (hoods), also present as a guest on the Waste of Life song. The lyrics of this band are a little different compared to some „hood” bands, BegForLife focusing on the human existance on the path of time, on failure, pain or rage, an apocalyptic vision towards the world. If you like 90’s hardcore bands, then BegForLife are definately a must.

Havenside-Recognition (2010)
Havenside is another band from the big family of Westcoast Worldwide Records. From the heart of Sacramento, these guys are a heavy part of the hardcore scene. A heavy mix of hardcore, metal and punk on 11 „in your face” songs, gathered under the name of Recognition (the latest material signed by the band). Havenside can take pride in sharing the stage with bands such as Lionheart, Hoods, Stick To Your Guns, Earth Crisis, First Blood and a lot more. The album also has two collaborations, one with Mike (Hoods) on „What We Live For”, and one with Rob McCarthy (lionheart) on Still Eyes. Heavy riffs, attitude, friendship, lots of mosh-pit…that’s how I would depict Havenside in a few words. These guys desirve all your attention!

Interview: Out For Revenge (HC-USA)

MPTY ZINE: Hello, Darin! How did the year start for you?

SD: pretty good! thanks! 2010 was kind of a hard year so its nice to have a fresh start for sure! 2011 should be a great year!

Tell me a few words about you, for the ones that don’t know you.

SD: well i live in mesa arizona, sing in a band called out for revenge on westcoast worldwide records (which is owned by mikey hood of hoods), and i like to cook….hahaha. my favorite bands are probably agnostic front, terror, hoods, north side kings, donnybrook, and madball
How did you come up with the name Spyderdog?

SD: i actually didnt. i have a dog named spyder, and a like 9 years ago i used to work at this car dealership installing alarms and stereos and shit, and the guys that i worked with started calling me that. my dog is super small and girlie and they thought it was funny i guess, and it just kinda stuck!

In an interlude on Gladiator Academy, Boston Eric said, joking or not, that he doesn’t know what good does it make to have another band that sings about the same things: loyalty, friendship, work…what does OFR bring as a novelty?

SD: honestly that whole thing was kind of a joke. eric is a great friend to the band, an awesome dude, and a total character, and we just kinda gave him the mic and turned him loose. our previous record gladiator academy was really different from our new record black market status. at that time we really were reflecting what life was like here in arizona, (food folks and fun… much as being broke allows for anyway) and although we are still doing that, the tone around here has changed a lot for the worse. i dont really think we were ever really trying to create a novelty or anything, but at that time thats what life kinda was. we all were kinda keeping sane by goofing off. now, since all the problems have happened with the economy and our crazy state government, i think people are a lot more pissed off then they were a few years ago, and the new record really reflects that. arizona has really turned in to the political and economic wasteland of the united states, and we decided that now wasn’t really an appropriate time to joke around. things have gotten really serious here, and were a lot more serious then we used to be because of it, and the new album reflects that i think.
Congrats for the Black Market Status! It’s an awesome album. How did the listeners take it and also tell me, what are your plans for 2011?

SD: thanks! so far the response has been great! its selling really well, and all the reviews have been super positive! if you wanna check it out you can go to and find out more about it, and hear tracks, get free ring tones and all kinds of other good stuff not only from us but all the other westcoast worldwide bands. were really lucky to be on a label that has so many good bands. honestly, i have basically every cd to ever come out on westcoast worldwide, and they are all good! as for 2011, the idea is to just keep working hard, and tour as much as possible, and above all else, have a good time!

You’ve collaborated with many great people like Rick Ta Life, Mike Hood, Roger Miret or Danny Northside. When will you be making a split CD with Bon Jovi?

SD: hahahaha! as soon as they decide to not suck anymore i guess! yeah, we like the guest spot thing a lot. i think one of the coolest things about hardcore is how accessible it is. i mean people you grow up idolizing become your friends, and whats better then sitting down and doing a track with your friends! plus i really think it always adds that extra dimension to a song too. its something we certainly wont stop doing any time soon

Tell me a couple of words about the Mesa scene (AZ).

SD: well, mesa is located in the same general area as phoenix is, and its hot (hahaha). arizona as a whole actually has an exceptional scene. we got some great venues, and theres a ton of great bands from here. we got north side kings (iscream records), run with the hunted (panic records) , redson, dead life, reasons, bloody roar, spill my blood, and of course our label mates and good buddies in beg for life (westcoast worldwide records). every single one of those bands is worth checking out, and backing. nobody around here really sounds the same which is great too. we have a very diverse scene here. with that however brings a lot of division with in the kids themselves, which is totally wack. it seems like if you like run with the hunted, you arnt allowed to like NSK or us, or if you are all about redson, or landmine marathon (an awesome death metal band from here) you cant be into beg for life or bloody roar too, which is really stupid. theres also a tremendous amount of hipster punk here too, and those kids pretty much hate on everything non stop, and really dont do anything good ever for anybody. death metal is also huge too here (job for a cowboy, knights of the abyss, and a lot of those types of bands came from here too). hardcore is hardcore as far as im concerned, and if you have the desire and thinking ability to dig a little deeper and make it to ANY hardcore show you have more in common with a kid on the other side of the scene then anybody just walking around listening to 50 cent or limp bizkit or whatever crap is on the radio right now. thats really the only drawback to the az scene. a lack of locals supporting locals, and thats really a shame considering what we have here, and how lucky we are to have it.

Ok, we spoke about Mesa, now a couple of words about Romania. What do you know about our country?

SD: i actually work with a guy thats from there (he also lived in hungary as well), and hes really big into like british punk rock stuff. he said he used to go to lots of punk shows over there, so i know theres a scene which is awesome. its really amazing how worldly hardcore has become. i think its really a great thing too! theres so many good european/non american bands right now, and i really think it speaks to the power of music and message like we got in hardcore, and thats something really special. other then that i kinda know the basics about Romania. 25 or so million people live there, stuff like that. from what my friend paul says its pretty nice over there.
What else do you do besides OFR?

SD: i work for a promotions company as a day job, and i chase my dog and my girlfriend around….hahaha!

Darin, thanks a lot for this interview and I hope we’ll soon meet at a concert in Romania. If there’s anything else you would like to say, please do.

SD: i just wanna say thank you to everybody thats supported us, and comes to/books/plays/photographs/writes about shows and stuff, cuz thats what its really all about. also thanks to the independent media (like you!) who takes the time to support bands and get the word out in as unfiltered a way as possible. that shit is really important to the scene, and really helps keep things going. so thanks man! hope to get over there soon!

Interview: SKUNX

SKUNX – oi/punk-Canada interview january 2011

MPTY ZINE: Hello Giovanni, how’s 2011 for you ? Woken up from the hangover ?

Giovanni:New years was fun, a bit of drama with some ladies, but nothing special to ruin my night. We went to a rockabilly show to see Bloodshot Bill play and also a few skins came out with us. I dont usually drink much but that night I did. I even end up having some urinary problems after. Hahahaa

For those who aren’t familiar with the band, could you make the

Skunx is an Oi! band heavily influenced by British, French, and some Italian along with other bands from rest of the world from the early 80s. We formed in October of 2009 and we have doing well. Lots of gigs in Toronto and trying to get out of city more.

Have you gotten in plan for 2011 a new album ?

For a new album we’re not quite sure yet what are we gonna do. We just released our new demo. A buddy of us did it for free and it came out like we wanted.

Now that we’ve talked about the album, are you going DIY or a label ?

We are still deciding to see if we are going to release an EP by our selfs or see if we can get a deal with some label. We don’t want to get tag with any political wings, so we are looking for a label that can offer us that and the satistfaction that we are looking for. Im not a big fan of the new skinhead sound, Oi core or skinhead rock.

I know you had a band, RIP, psychobilly, how come you’re playing OI now ?

We still have RIP. Rip is also another band that is influenced by 80s psychobilly. Before we put skunx together, I met cousins Andy and Israel both from Mexico. They told me they had RIP and we’re looking for a drummer. I agreed with them that if I play drums for them I would like them start an Oi! band with me. They seemed cool with the idea and we put it together quick. I learned the RIP songs too and we put a show togeher a month after with both bands and we kicked off
great since then.

Tell me a little about the bands you listen to and the bands that
have been inspiring for Skunx.

Like i mention before, our influences are bands from the 80s. FOr Skunx I like lots of early French Oi! even though I cant really understand what they are saying but I love the sound. Bands like Swingo Porkies, Snix, Trotskids, Tolbiac’s Toads and most of the bands from the Chaos En France compilation. From Italy Nabat, Plastic Surgery, Asociale and I recently became a big fan of Brutti & Ignoranti, I think they are fantastic. From England I love all the bands, specially around 80 to 85. And since Im latino I have a big passion for Brazilian Oi!, Histeria, Carbonarios, Virus 27 and Maniphesto are my favorites.

Have you ever met a grizzly bear?

Hahaha, no man.. To see them you have to travel far north in the country. Toronto only has Hot girls and a shit load of stupid fuckers.

Do you know anything about Romania ? Do you know any band from here?

To be honest, not too much. When I was around 18 or 19 I use to live in the States and I had a really shitty Oi!/Streetpunk band. We came out in a Romania fanzine that Im sure you know call No Bollox JustOi!. The zine came out with a compilation and it had a Romanian band call Scandal, and that is as much as I know.

I know that you’re from Paraguay and moved to Canada.. how was the transition and what are the differences?

Yes I am. But I moved out of Paraguay when I was 13 in the year of 2000. I lived about 8 yrs and a half in the United States. I’ve lived all over the East Coast, from Miami to NYC. So when I moved to Canada things were not much of a change, the only thing that it was a bit weird was to see all the sings in English and French. I was used to seeing in English and Spanish in the states. But thats about it.Toronto is a great city, and Canada in general is very calm. I really like it and recomend everyone sometime to visit it.

Thanks for the interview Giovanni and I give you the last word.

Mircea, thanks a lot for the interview. The only thing I have to say is that the skins who are political for the most part they are in for the violence, most can even back up the knoledge of what they stand for, and they are just puppets of some idiots that are ahead of dirty business. One day the skinhead scene will rise again and there will be no divisions anymore. Cheers!!!

PS: When I was in high school I knew a rumanian girl and she was hot!
I tried to fuck her a few times but she never gave it to me, fucking bitch! hahahaha

thanks: Giovanni and Skunx
