JFA
JFA (Jodie Foster's Army) is a hardcore punk band formed in 1981, with roots in Arizona and in Southern California skateboard culture. The original members include Brian Brannon (vocals), Don Redondo (guitar), Michael Cornelius (bass), and Mike "Bam-Bam" Sversvold (drums). Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls also played bass for a while. The band was pivotal in the development of the skate punk and Skate Rock scenes. Over the years, the lineup has included many bass players and drummers but the core of Brannon and Redondo has remained constant.
Pulley
What did you do this winter?

Thankfully, in sunny Southern California, the members of veteran punk rock band Pulley do not put their lives into hibernation when winter comes a calling. In fact, it's during this time of year when the band is most active.

Sure, they got their start playing in other well known bands, released numerous records, toured all over, but unlike most of their contemporaries, their band is not their bread and butter. For 17 years, Pulley have always been working class musicians priding themselves on being regular guys. They have wives, families, bills to pay, and yes, full time day jobs. Nobody here is concerned with making it big or trying to write a hit single. They just genuinely like to play music together. And just like in years past, they spent the winter of 2010 playing gigs, having fun, and fortunately for their fans, writing and recording music.

The result is a new EP entitled, "The Long and the Short of It."

This three track EP consists of the songs: "No Man's Flute", "The Long and the Short of It", and "Which Way to Go" (a
cover version of a tune by Austin, TX punk legends The Big Boys). Acclaimed producer Matt Hyde, who worked with the band on "Matters" in 2004, and "Time-Insensitive Material" in 2009, oversaw the recording process once again. In keeping with the vibe and spirit of an old school 1980's era seven inch, Pulley commissioned their old friend and prolific artist, Brian Walsby (Melvins,7Seconds, Flipside, Maximum Rock & Roll, etc.) to handle the cover illustration.

There will be two versions of the EP available: The physical EP, in the form of a 7 inch vinyl record, will be released on June 28th, 2011 by Edmonton's When's Lunch Records. Pulley's own label, X-Members Records, will be releasing the EP for download through all major digital retailers such as iTunes, Amazon, and Emusic on the same day.

"The Long and The Short of It" may be Pulley's shortest work to date, but this appetizer does not lack in taste. Each track has been forged from the band's high standard of melodic punk rock sensibilities. Scott's Radinsky's unmistakable voice, Jim Blowers' and Mike Harder's shredding guitars, Tyler Rebbe's melodic bass lines, and newcomer "Metal Bob" Gilmore's rapid fire drumming are all here, and as powerful as anyone has ever heard them.
Pulley is currently planning a full length record to be released in early 2012. Until then, get out your turntable or capable mp3 playing device, sit back, relax, and enjoy "The Long and the Short of It" Pulley Discography: Esteem Driven Engine (Epitaph 1996) 60 Cycle Hum (Epitaph 1997) Pulley (Epitaph 1999) Together Again for the First Time (Epitaph 2001) Matters (Epitaph 2004) The Slackers / Pulley Split (Do Tell Records 2005) Pulley Beyond Warped (Immergent Records 2005) The True Story of an American Punk Rock Band DVD (X-Members Records 2007) Time-Insensitive Material (X-Members Records 2009) The Long and the Short of It (X-Members Records 2011)
Ill Repute
Ill Repute
Hometown favorites Ill Repute are slated to headline this year's Nardfest. An American hardcore punk band from Oxnard, California, formed in 1981, they are noted for popularizing the "Nardcore" sound in the mid-1980s hardcore punk scene. With countless great albums released on Mystic and Dr. Strange Records, as well as their breakout single "Clean Cut American Kid" featured on Rodney on the Roq III, IR has become widely known as the ambassadors of Nardcore.
They are still performing today with three original founding members, Jim Callahan, John Phaneuf and Tony Cortez. Their drummer Chuck Shultz has been with them for over nine years.
On this special occasion, the band will be performing their classic 1984 full length album What Happens Next in its entirety to commemorate the 30th anniversary. This is a must see!
Naked Aggression
Naked Aggression
Naked Aggression was formed in Madison, WI by Guitarist/Song Writer Phil Suchomel and Singer Kirsten Patches in early 1991, during the Gulf War. They where both classical music students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who were discontent with the confines of a conservative music department, So, they started jamming together in the dingy basement of their house in the student ghetto. They had an array of people play bass and drums with them. About a year later they left Madison and moved out to California and spent nine months up in the East Bay/ San Francisco area. For the past three years they've based themselves in L.A. Recently Joe Garcia joined them on Bass and Aaron Austin joined them on Drums.
