The Matador Records compilation "Casual Victim Pile: Austin 2010" is out NOW! In addition to a previously unreleased track from The No No No Hopes and a song from future Twistworthy Records band Flesh Lights, there are 17 other tracks of (mostly) Austin bands giving it their all. And honestly, it's a really great collection with some of my favorite Austin bands on it (Wild America, The Young, Golden Boys, Flesh Lights, etc). This should be available everywhere records are sold, on single CD or double LP vinyl. Check it out if you get a chance!

A couple of us from the No No No Hopes did a quick phone interview with Joe Gross from the Austin American Statesman last week, resulting in this nice write-up which was printed in the paper today!

The No No No Hopes 7" is out and being well received so far! It's limited to 300 copies so I wouldn't sleep on it if you want one. I am working on setting up a page on this site for ordering, linking to Paypal for ease all around, but haven't done it yet. In the meantime, the record can be ordered for $5ppd in the US, $6ppd in Canada/Mexico, or $7ppd elsewhere worldwide directly from TWISTWORTHY. Distros carrying it so far are only GONER RECORDS and NO IDEA RECORDS. If you can help with distro or want to do some kind of trade, please get in touch. If the digital medium is your thing, it's also available via iTunes, Amazon, and even eMusic I think? Weird.

Camp X-Ray has broken up. After 5 years (really?) and countless shows, it just seemed like it was time to lay this one to bed. The Camp X-Ray 7" is still available, but if you want some low-quality mp3's, i've just put up a bunch in the newly renovated "MP3's" section of this site, along with some other oldies. Ex-Camp X-Ray bands include The No No No Hopes and Shitty Carwash (who both have actually been an active band for many months, co-existing with CXR). Shitty Carwash may just have an upcoming release on TWISTWORTHY... stay tuned. I'll be adding more stuff to download to the mp3's section, so check back if you're still seeing a bunch missing.

New release on the TWISTWORTHY horizon: The No No No Hopes debut 7"!
Release date: July 1st, 2009!

The No No No Hopes continue to deliver the goods on their second release of primeval, raw, and unpretentious garage punk. Picking up where last summer's demo left off, the quartet, fueled by a steady diet of Jägerbombs and soy lattes, belt out five original songs as well as a cover of the classic Action Swingers single "Kicked In The Head" on their debut EP. Coming from the once fertile garage rock mecca of Austin Texas, fans of real-deal garage punk should take note as the band draw their roots from garage greats such as Supercharger, The Sonics, and The Mummies but keep their own flavor at the forefront.

Best known for their high energy live sets and often ridiculous onstage banter, The No No No Hopes spent much of the past year honing their craft, playing as supporting act for many touring bands while building a loyal fan base across Texas. Recorded at the world renowned Sweatbox Studios with legendary producer/engineer Mike Vasquez, these new songs are more polished than previous recordings but still retain the lo-fi, trashy edge the band is known for.

The debut EP by the Austin TX band, Camp X-Ray, is out NOW! Camp X-Ray is a 5-piece post-punk band from Austin, Texas that formed in 2004. Having culled their sound influenced by bands like Drive Like Jehu, The Wipers, and Sonic Youth mixed with a general underlying inspiration from the discordant post-punk sound of the mid-90's, Camp X-Ray's driving guitars, strained vocals and a sold rhythm section have gained the band a loyal fan base throughout Texas.
