Big Neck Records Fest
Big Neck Records Fest
A record label with it's birthplace in the seamy underbelly of Buffalo, New York. Spawned from the ashes of the infamous Sanctuary nightclub that was home to many crazy nights and many crazy, messed up bands. Big Neck Records was then suddenly uprooted and moved to Northern Virginia, where it now resides.

The only creed that Big Neck Records lives by is to keep crazy, messed up rock-n-roll going strong!
The Hussy
The Hussy
Madison, Wisconsin’s psych-punk duo The Hussy return with GALORE (Southpaw Records), their first full length since 2013’s critically acclaimed Pagan Hiss! Last year’s split 12” with Digital Leather featured a darker, denser side of The Hussy. On the split, Shawn Foree (Digital Leather, TIT) intricately tangled synthesizers into The Hussy’s signature lo-fi scuzzpop that fans had come to expect. The result was a unique mini-album that stirred the band into new audio territory. GALORE takes things in a slightly different direction…almost entirely abandoning keyboards for the sonic textures of various guitars, amplifiers, effect pedals, violin, lap steel and percussive elements. The underlying sonics may have morphed, but the hooks and guy/girl interplay are immaculately omnipresent…this may be the Hussy’s catchiest and popiest record to date! Recorded onto ¼” tape with a Tascam 388 by Bobby Hussy in the band’s practice space, the DIY lo-fi aesthetic is still fully baked into it all. GALORE’s polished but slightly perforated sound hints at the slew of previous material The Hussy have released, while significantly stepping things up through a richer, more expansive sound palette. This is the first Hussy LP with bass guitar added to the entire record, marking it as somewhat of a turning point for the band. GALORE showcases The Hussy at their creative peak, crafting concise pop gems that evolve and devolve after every listen while always definitively being The Hussy. The years the band has spent touring, recording and honing their seemingly telepathic connection have amounted to a vast and varied catalogue rivaling even the most prolific artists of the current garage/punk/whatever underground. Last year saw the band opening and backing the masked madman NOBUNNY himself on tours through North America, Australia and New Zealand. The Hussy also toured with The Faint in 2014, and they have played shows with The Reigning Sound, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, King Tuff, King Khan and BBQ, Local H, White Fence, Black Lips, Nots, Blind Shake, Digital Leather, Kadavar, Useless Eaters and too many others to name. The Hussy most recently the Midwest, East Coast and Southern United States in June 2015 and Europe followed in August 2015.
Wood Chickens
Wood Chickens
Wood Chickens is a cowpunk band from Madison, Wisconsin serving a spicy, extra caffeinated blend that draws inspiration from country-western, psychedelia and punk from across the decades. Formed in the tiny town of Milton, Wisconsin by high school comrades Alex Reilly and Griffin Pett, Wood Chickens soon moved to Madison in 2013 to escape the monotony of life in the small farming community. In the spring of 2015, they were joined by a new drummer, the eccentric Justin J. Johnson, whom had just returned to his home state of Wisconsin after touring with a Nashville-based rockabilly act. To date, Wood Chickens have self-released several albums worth of material and have releases with various indie labels across the United States. Through Big Neck Records, the prolific trio shows no signs of slowing down as they release their debut LP “Countrycide” and embark on the road again and again with their fresh, energetic and eclectic musical styles. Their unique twist of genres, past and present, leaves their audiences wondering what will come next.
