Mighty mighty Los Fastidios are back with their 8th studio album. The band formed in Verona somewhere in 1991, last year they had their Best Of, 25 years of combat ska-punk! In 2017 is time for kids to be ready for Sound Of Revolution. This album has it all from finest ska sounds to streetpunk and from oi! to rocksteady. 12 tracks for every rude boy, punk, skin out there, themes are speaking about injustice in any form, equality, human and animal rights. The album has as well guests from SKASSAPUNKA and REDSKA, also it feature a ska medley from The Specials’s „You’re Wondering Now” and Cock Sparrer’s „We’re Coming Back”, also a cover after Manu Chao-Clandestino.

The Pinwheels promo

They are like a fresh air in the Romanian alternative scene. If you are tired of hipsters and cool kids playing then you need to keep these guys (and girl) on the loop for sure. The band first material is named: Liquid Tales. It will take you a bit on the old punk rock catchy tunes mixed with ska and newer The Interrupters with a little bit from everything, from melodic punk-rock to a bit of ska. Catchy themes, harmony and beers from Freddy, the bartender.

Lyrics are about day by day problems, irony and everything packed in a dancing beat.

We recommend for the Saturday autumn nights the song: Memories

PS. really cool version for the song: I Love Chaos

Thanks to The Pinwheels

Interview Rusty Nail

56c9ffd477537.image

Interview exclusive for Romania with Rusty Nail (st. Louis celtic folk,punk)

Mirceone (MPTY ZINE):Hi guys, what’s up?

Chad:Just enjoying life, making music, making beer, and of course drinking beer

Congrats for the album, is really nice and so deep.Tell me few things about it.

Alvy:Its an album about regret. Its about wishing things were different and struggling with the decisions that were made and then ultimately making peace with those decisions. I am not sure I ever look to mask a lyric with deep underlying meaning except to keep it universal… meaning the names are changed, and the experiences are sometimes combined, but honesty is very important.

Chad:Nine of the songs were written by Alvy, one was collaboration between Alvy and Chris, and one was by Chris. Typically Alvy and I work on the songs till it’s something that feels like a Rusty Nail song and then we work on a full band arrangement. This is how the songs were written for this album. We recorded at my studio for the most part and I did the mixing, the final mastering was done by Brad Sarno who is lives in St Louis.

Also for our few readers:) tell us a short bio

Chad:Born in the winter of 2005, Rusty Nail is a 7 piece band that plays Celtic infused Rock songs, inspired by such acts as The Pogues, The Tossers and Flogging Molly. With the strong Irish history in many of St. Louis’ neighborhoods on the city’s South Side, Celtic folk music has a rich tradition and a welcome place in our great city. Gaining the love and encouragement of our town, we have crafted our sound by playing a healthy mix of these traditional songs as well as a strong repertoire of our own original music. We began this experiment in the various pubs and festivals of metro St. Louis and built a solid reputation as an entertaining and energetic live music experience and a true-to-form Irish bar band.Rusty Nail takes its name from an Old-Timey beverage made with Whiskey and Drambuie Liqueur. We feel that we are a potent blend of traditional and hard rock elements that works well at any party, club or booze-fueled festivity! In 2011 we released our first “FULL BAND” album, containing many of our original and live show favorites. The record “Boozers, Bastards, and Bards” garnered great local reviews and bore us many new friends and supporters. While we are inspired by these traditional sounds, we aim to put our own spin on Folk Rock. We like to think if Shane McGowan or Liam Clancy grew up listening to Nirvana, they would create music that sounds like Rusty Nail!

So whether it is St. Pat’s and you are looking for a soundtrack for your revelry, or it is the dead of winter and you need a spot of whiskey and a jig to warm you, in Rusty Nail you will always find a great time!

Rusty Nail is:

Alvan Caby – Mandolin, Guitar, Vocals

Chad Ross – Dulcimer, Accordion, Banjo, Guitar, Bouzouki

Chris Otto – Tin Whistle, Native American Flute

Dennis Frentzel – Drums

Kelly LaRussa – Violin

Mark Hochberg – Bass

Pete McAvity – Electric Guitar

Who influenced you across the years?

Chad:As far as celtic music, I used to go local bar that this guy John would play all these Traditional Irish beer drinking along with some punk and 80’s stuff. The regulars would often sign along and make allot noise. So, I thought it would be great to learn those songs and posted an add looking for people wanting to play celtic music. Alvy contacted me and that was the start of Rusty Nail.

Speaking of influences,please name a top 10 of you all time favorites bands

Alvy:Black Sabbath

Bob Dylan

The Pogues

Dropkick Murphys

The Beatles

The Cure

Flogging Molly

Van Morrison

Dinosaur Jr.

Iron Maiden

Chad:Robert Pollard/Guided By Voices

Dinosaur Jr

Uncle Tupelo

Warren Zevon

Pouges

Dropkick Murphy’s

Bob Mould/Husker Du

Black Sabbath

Ramones

Dylan

How the album will be promoted? You guys will start a tour? A video?

Alvy:We are interested in playing some out-of-town shows in the coming months.

Tell us few words about your message,i did notice sad lyrics but in the same time this is an optimistic album..

Alvy:I don’t think we have a „message” per SE.  I took a more honest and personal approach to writing lyrics for these songs.  I stopped trying to create a story that was funny or fake and I wrote about my personal struggles.  I went through a divorce, I had some personal crisis, I hated my job at the time, I was pretty miserable.  The writing has always been a sort-of therapy for me, and perhaps the songs reflect more of the struggle than the success.  I appreciate that you see the optimism in them.  I certainly feel optimistic about the future.  Maybe our next record will be all happy songs.

If you will have to choose a band for a split cd,who it will be and why

Alvy:I don’t know, maybe Taylor Swift.

What the future holds for the band?

Alvy:As long as we still enjoy doing it, we keep writing new material, playing as much as life allows and make as many new friends along the way that we can.

What else you guys are doing beside Rusty Nail?

Alvy:Some of us have other musical projects ranging from Bluegrass to Hard Rock.

A few words for our readers in Romania? Btw no google,what do you know about Eastern Europe? Romania?

Alvy:That is where Dracula is from right? My great Grandparents were actually from Romania.  Its a beautiful country, rich in culture and art, and that landscape is (in my opinion) some of the the most gorgeous sights on the planet.  Maybe someday we can come to Bucharest and play our little songs!

Where people can buy your music?

Chad:CD Baby, Bandcamp, Amazon, Emusic, etc.

Rusty Nail-Bitter Ale,Bitter Heart-promo album

Bitter Ale, Bitter Heart is the new album from Rusty Nail, is all about feelings and one of the best albums from the St. Louis band. They are play a celtic-folk with a little bit of punk influences and a lot of drinks. The album is a personal and sad one but in the same time they have the sound of hope and optimism.

The album has 11 tracks, just perfect to listen with a cold rum on the rocks, is a honest album and you can see that the guys invested a lot of feelings in it. About the band i can tell you that they are playing togheter for more than 10 years already and if you like Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Tossers, The Pogues than for sure you need to give them credit.

Also this album drive me close to Speed Of Darkness, the album from 2011 of Flogging Molly. Is an album that will trasport you somewhere where is cold but as well will give you enough strength to move on with a smile. Just great.

Mandolin,violin,banjo,accordion,irish whistle,flute,drums,bass,guitar,feelings,friendship,optimism and all the friends with a rum togheter.

Thanks to Chad and Rusty Nail
