Hello Hello Hello!
That was the last episode of Rocket From Russia featuring new music this year. 2013 is almost done and the next three shows will be Best Of-type-of-shows: best interviews of 2013, best of 2013 Vancouver edition and overall best of 2013.
In first block I played a little bit of pop-punk .what a surprise!!! Dan Vapid and The Cheats - one of the best releases of the year; Cyanide Pills - great powerpop/pop-punk band from Leeds, UK; ToyGuitar - new project from my favorite punk rock guitarist Jack Dalrymple; Jetty Boys - awesome pop-punk band from Sheboygan, Wisconsin, USA; Carbona - is an influential pop punk band from Brazil, theyve been playing since late 90s; and the last track in this pop punk block of songs is by the band Worthwhile Way - a super cute female fronted pop punk band from Japan.
Second block includes ska punk bands from all over the world: Kemuri (Japan), The Prosecution (Abensberg, Germany), The Sheds (Agoura Hills, CA, USA), The Bennies (Melbourne, Autralia) and Distemper (Moscow, Russia).
Third block includes SNUFF's version of On the Outside from amazing compilation The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute, new Gogol Bordello song and an awesome version of Cock Sparrer's Because You're Young performed by an interesting band The Pukes. This band includes 18 women and a couple of blokes play punk classics on the ukulele.
And in the end I gave away a pair of tickets to The Flatliners, Living With Lions & Stress Eating show at The Biltmore Cabaret.
