Bullys - BQE Overdrive
Bullys frontman Johnny Heff was a New York City firefighter, one of the many who died in the World Trade Center saving others.

Monikers - Eat Your Young
Fronted by former Discount guitarist Ryan Seagrist (not Seacrest), this is very much an ep from a band that sounds like a work in progress.

These guys have always been some of the best songwriters around (especially when you're in the mood for bitter, drunken breakup songs, or bitterness in general), and their buzzsaw guitars are distinctive and memorable. Their latest release just confirms it.

Thunderlip - The Prophecy
Like their North Carolina brethren, Valient Thorr, Thunderlip plays a heavy-hitting twisted version of Southern garage punk.

Triclops! - Cafeteria Brutalia
