In just a couple of weeks, Thick Syrup in conjunction with Max Recordings, is putting out the debut from raucous local rockers San Antokyo. It's called "The Big Collapse" and, from the tracks you can preview on Thick Syrup's MySpace page
, it sounds like something you're gonna want to play loud. At barbecues and on booze cruises. The CD release party is Aug. 2 at White Water.
A week later, on Aug. 8, Loch Ness Monster
celebrates the release of its latest (first?) album, "Eleven Traditional Songs." Max is putting it out. Sulac, of Hector Faceplant fame, sings lead. As usual, he's sardonic, half-crazy and pretty damn arresting. You can preview tracks here
. "The Biggest Egg" is the jam.
