Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

Coloured 7″
To celebrate 20 years since Mannheim punk band LOADED’s inception in 1994, ROOKIE RECORDS is releasing a limited edition 7-inch featuring two brand new tracks of “pressure drop punk rock and desperate poetry.” Housed in a gorgeous hand-screened, hand-stamped, hand-numbered sleeve by Götzilla (ROCKPOSTER/ANTIGHOST), the single will be limited to 300 copies on red vinyl. Not just for friends of The Clash, The Specials, Rancid, or The Flatliners, “CAN’T STOP, WON’T STOP” shows LOADED at the top of their game, still burning with the same fire it did at their very first gig 20 years ago! Title track plus „Everlasting Minute“ on the flip.

Inspired by the fire of The Clash, the energy of the Specials, the hooks of AC/DC, and the drinking ability of The Pogues, LOADED combines the sing-along, fist-in-the-air choruses of classic punk and oi!, the sweaty grooves of ska, beer-soaked rock’n’roll, and clever, socially-conscious lyrics, creating a sound that you don’t hear much anymore these days.

Bloodshot Forget-Me-Nots

coloured LP/CD (2011)
Excellent, anthemic punkrock with a legendary street- and ska-punk background. What a progression over the last 15 years: what began as three expatriate Americans with a heavy Operation Ivy influence, developed over the years into Oi!-punk with style, and is now better than ever! With their fifth album, the power trio accomplishes the big breakthrough. Nick’s California background shines through on the first tracks: the choruses are sun-drenched beach punk with amazing guitar work. In between there are never-been-better excursions into ska and dub reggae, super rockabilly licks from guitarist Felix, and folky punk that is reminiscent of not only the Pogues but also newer Dropkick Murphys. The intelligent and socially critic lyrics again mirror the influence of Strummer and Waits. A real knockout over 13 rounds.
