HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents The Manges

This is it, this is the end of the band announcements for the HEAD tribute album, this is the 24th band that were announcing that made it to the Lp. That’s right, 24 bands on a 12” Lp compilation. All of them are killer, there’s no filler to be found here on the HEAD tribute comp. if you heard last years tribute album to the Manges, then you know exactly what to expect from this one.

Speaking of the Manges, they are the final band that we’d like to announce for the HEAD tribute album. Of course you know that these guys are legendary and have been one of the best punk rock bands running on the planet for decades now. They’re also huge fans of HEAD, check out the Florida Ep if you want some more info on that. It made perfect sense to ask the Manges first to be on the HEAD tribute comp. Their contribution is awesome and once again we’re honored to be able to work with them on something.

Here is what they had to say about HEAD “HEAD! I’m your biggest fan, please reply to my letter. I wrote to your po box, please reply to my letter. I like bmx bikes and US flags, I’m from Seattle and Disneyland, applied for a job at Letterman’s

That’s pretty catchy huh? Their cover of “Senor Itchy” will blow your mind as will the other 23 contributions on the Lp. Stay tuned next week for the digital bonus band announcements and the big artwork reveal.

HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents Neon Bone

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for another band announcement for the HEAD tribute! This is the second to last band to be announced so I wanted to save a band that’s near and dear to our heads here at Mom’s Basement Records. Of course we’re talking about Neon Bone from Munster, Germany. Not only are Gumbo and the gang one of the best punk rock bands in Europe, he is also an integral part of this record label. Gumbo does all of our ads and most of our Lp inserts amongst other cool stuff so we had to have him involved.

Here’s what gumbo had to say about HEAD and his song choice.

They didn’t want to stay at my place when I booked a show for them in my hometown so I picked “The Sissy” for my cover, LoL

Wow! How scandalous! There’s only one more band to announce so be sure to check us out on Friday afternoon at the usual time!

HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents Ratcliffs

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s announcement time. We’re very pleased to tell you that the Ratcliffs from Austria have recorded a killer cover for the HEAD tribute. I’m a huge fan of these dudes and their latest album “Hell Mental” is a must have so head over to the I Buy Records webstore and pick that bad boy up. .

Here’s what the guys have to say about: “Our entire existence orbits around HEAD and their spiritual teachings. We have been following them for at least forty years if not even longer. Hence, we feel beyond delighted to pay homage to this formidable squadron of merry-men and pranksters. Aloha

HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents Volkov

Alright everyone! It’s time for another week of HEAD tribute bane announcements. This time we’re pleased to announce that Volkov is on the HEAD tribute. They’ve been with the Mom’s Basement Records since the beginning so you had to know that they were gonna be on there. They just released a brand new full length Fat, Rich and Sad on vinyl and/or Cd. The Cd has different artwork, a different album title and another special surprise so you should buy both. Released by Mom’s Basement Records, I Buy Records and One Chord Wonder.

Here is what Mr. Specianin had to say about “Once I was talking to Chris Mugwump and we found out that we both have been trying to write a song in the style of HEAD for over 20 years with no satisfactory results. That’s why they’re so unique.
You can write a song that sounds like Screeching Weasel, You can try to write a song that sounds like the Beatles. You can even try to do your best and write a classical Chopin style song. But you’ll never score that goal with HEAD. I dare you to try asshole!”

This newer band has self released a couple of CDs and a split 7” with fellow label mates the Proton Packs. Word has it that they’re working on a new full length that will be releasing via I Buy Records and Mom’s Basement Records.

Here’s what he had to say about the tribute “We didn’t choose a HEAD song… The HEAD song chooses you when you listen to them. Tire Shredding is in our top five of the best punk rock killer songs ever written. It’s a privilege to be a part of this compilation”

HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents The Putz

It’s Monday again, so that means it’s time to announce another band from the upcoming HEAD tribute album. This time it’s another MBR family member, we’re talking about the Putz! These guys are one of the best in the USA (as if you already didn’t know that) they’ve dropped 2 full lengths and a 12 ep on the best punk rock label on the planet Eccentric Pop Records and they’ve also worked with us on the Hole In One reissue and the Passport Split series vol.3 with the Proton Packs.

We spoke with Dougie and he had this to say about the HEAD Tribute album, “Head is exactly what you’d expect a “Ramonescore” band to sound like, in all the best ways. Simple, fun, repetitious, witty songs about the darker, more off-beat side of life.

Don’t Go Looking In the Closet is a perfect example. Classic Ramonesy song structure, tongue-in-cheek black humor, and a catchy as hell chorus. This song was a no-brainer when it came time to record our track for the record.

There you go folks, you can expect this killer contribution and many more on the upcoming HEAD tribute album.

HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents Lorrainas

Hell yeah! It’s Friday and it’s time for yet another band announcement for the upcoming HEAD tribute! This time we have a bit of big deal on our hands. We’re stoked to have The Lorrainas from Ontario, Canada on the tribute album. If you aren’t familiar then let’s take a trip down memory lane. The Lorrainas stormed the scene in the mid 2000’s and toured Canada and the States, all the while stealing the hearts and wallets of those in attendance!

The dynamics of the band consisted of 4 badass punk rock ladies and a rotating cast of Canadian legends like Jimmy and Scotty Vapid and the original drummer for the forgotten rebels all of which seemed to constantly complain about the ladies shenanigans. One constant quote was “You girls are killing me

We talked to Lasha from the Lorrainas and she spoke on behalf of the band stating that

The Lorraina’s LOVE Head.
Oh wait, you mean the band Head?
Never heard of them. Do they have a MySpace?

There you have it folks, another killer band confirmed for the HEAD tribute. You’ll surely keep going back to their cover of “Stag Party” it’s one of the stand out tracks on the tribute and you can quote me on that jerks.

HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents So-cho Pistons

Happy Wednesday everyone! We’re back with yet another band announcement for the upcoming HEAD tribute. We are absolutely delighted to announce that the mighty So-Cho Pistons from Japan have contributed a killer medley to the tribute album. These guys are legendary and I can assure you that their song hits you right in the gut the second it starts. What a way to start off a tribute album. Click the link to see what Nasu had to say about HEAD and their involvement in the comp.

“My encounter with HEAD was at a small imported record store in Osaka. I found their first full album “The Monkeys” on the shelf. It’s hard to forget the impact of when I saw the cover art, of course I bought it immediately. Shortly after I got most of their records.

“We’re the HEAD ARMY!”

“This time we recorded our favorite instrumental song “Theme of HEAD” and “No Hugging No Learning” which TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET also covered.
We’re proud to be participating in this great tribute album!”
