So several years ago when I was accepting and assembling songs for the Hideout Comp Series, I got a lot of submissions. Way more, in fact, than I ended up using. Some of the songs that got cut for one reason or another were definitely still good and worthy of being heard, they just never made it onto one of the volumes in the series. Recently I dug up a good number of these tracks that had been left on the cutting room floor and decided to throw them together mixtape-style and post ’em on Mixcloud. I probably have enough of these to do several volumes (I’m guessing four), but I don’t know if I’ll get around to making that many or not. In any event, here’s the first. It’s pretty rockin’. Hope you dig it!
The latest episode of Savage Kick is chock full of great older music spanning the 1960s through the ’90s, including stuff from The Painted Ship, The Seeds, The Pretty Things, The Mods, The Flamin Groovies, The Dictators, Girl Trouble, The Pandoras, The Devil Dogs, Nikki & The Corvettes, The Hentchmen, The Stallions, The Makers, and loads more. This episode is dedicated to those of you who actually join The Hideout *after* discovering the podcast (and not the other way around). Crank it up!DOWNLOAD MP3 | SUBSCRIBE
The next generation of GaragePunk.com is a social network called The Hideout… kinda like GaragePunk.com’s own little Myspace, if you will. It’s got everything the site could possibly need, and what it doesn’t have we can probably add pretty easily since it’s open source. Just like Myspace, bands can join and upload MP3s and customize profiles with CSS and all that. There’s even a podcast player there and the RSS feed from the playlists delivers those there, too. There’s a forum for discussions and events listings (shows, festivals, parties, whatever), a place to upload video, groups, blogs, etc. I’m hoping most of our current forums users migrate over there (my plan is to have this completely replace the antiquated forums at some point) but I’m afraid we may lose some people due to the fact that this sort of thing is pretty new and a lot of our forum users are pretty old-school when it comes to the Web. I guess time will tell if it’ll be successful or not.There’s a link to it from the GaragePunk.com blog now, too. Please check it out.
