You’ve probably spent many sleepless nights wondering what happened to Australia’s most popular punks Frenzal Rhomb. Have they gone on walkabout? Were they lost in the Outback? Were they attacked by Russell Crowe? Well, worry no longer. It turns out they’ve been hard at work in the safe confines of the Blasting Room, under the watchful eye of the legendary Bill Stevenson, churning out their 8th full-length album Smoko at the Pet Food Factory. What’s more, Fat and Frenzal have reunited (and it feels so good) to release this epic collection of 16 balls-to-the-wall, tongue in cheek, catchy punk rock songs!
“When will I be able to get Smoko At the Pet Food Factory?”, you ask. How about today? Does that work for you? That’s right, the album is available on iTunes today!! The physical version on both cd and vinyl will also be available on October 11th , but you can preorder both versions NOW!
Check out the cover art (and try to figure out what on earth the album title means) below, listen to a few tracks and watch (below) a punk rock homage to Alfred Hitchcock from their first single “Bird Attack”! (Tippi Hedren, eat your heart out!)
Old Man Markley are showing no signs of slowing down. With relentless touring and their debut full length on Fat this year, you think they’d be plum tuckered out? Not so, inspired by all the happenings they busted their butts and recorded a brand new single titled “Party Shack”. Preorder now and check out what Joey Balls had to say about the inspiration and songs below:
“Party Shack” is an homage to Johnny and Annie’s house, the affectionately coined OMM Manor. Inspired by many parties (as you may have guessed), topics like hiding booze in major appliances, trash debris filled beer lakes, and overcrowded sleeping quarters are covered. The B side features a cover of One Man Army’s “The Holidays.” Enjoy!
OMM have added a slew of new dates, check it out here!
