GOLDEN BOYS "Dirty Fingernails" LP

german pressing with an alternate tooth -pulling mix. Already 3rd album on ALIEN SNATCH! of these Austins´favorite super rock band. What started with some kind of release party & eating for "No Reservations" with Anthony Bourdain in March 2012 turned into two US tours this year ending with GONER FEST 9 in Memphis.

"perhaps the first of their full-lengths to accurately transfer the multi-dimensional insanity of their live shows to a home/car/jogging format" (12XU - Gerard Cosloy)

"album of the year" (GONER RECORDS - Eric)

"This record presents them as kind of like a less refined, more musically raw answer to modern garage rock elder statesmen REIGNING SOUND, while at the same time giving a nod to the hooky pop of ELVIS COSTELLO And The ATTRACTIONS...Dirty Fingernails is easily on my top five records of 2012 so far, and I predict it’s there to stay. It’s an instant classic and gets my highest recommendation" (Razorcake)

"Punk in spirit, rifling through dirty R&B, outlaw country, and vintage pop, Austin's the Golden Boys embody every great idiom of rock & roll." (Austin Chronicle)

GOLDEN BOYS "Electric Wolfman" LP/CD

The newest album from Austin, TX rockers, GOLDEN BOYS, is a shambolic collection of organ driven moonshine howling (Electric Wolfmen), folky pop nuggets (Old Man´s Coat, Rock With Me Forever), topping accoustic anthems about dada and dogs.The GOLDEN BOYS drive off-road and cheer over to you before apparently getting stuck at the next intersection. The moment you´re about to say goodbye and smile bout the odd situation they´re back with another pushing rocker (Kontroll Girls, Goddamn I love the ocean). "Electric Wolfman" is a blueprint lesson in writing a party record of slow rockers and soulful wailers.
Produced by GREG ASHLEY (of GRIS GRIS) with guest musicians including Ashley, Memphis legend ROSS JOHNSON and the SPIDER BAGS. Co-released with Daggerman Records (USA). The LP is pressed on 180-gram vinyl, has deluxe inner sleeve and LP includes a free download. The CD is on a cardboard only digipack sleeve and has a extra booklet. Weirdness for money! If you close one eye, you will even hear a trumpet! We have a mere 400 copies of the vinyl and this is for music lovers only. If you don´t have a juke box - get a GOLDEN BOYS record!

GOLDEN BOYS "Whiskey Flower" LP

What can we announce here what haven´t been said ´bout the Austin, TX rock`n`roll boom-bam outfit? We adore their musically output from the start on our friends´ Pepetrator Records outta New Zealand and we count their live appearance in NYC 2008 as something I will always remember as magnificient.




Isn´t that the reason we go to shows at first hand?
This is live in the studio, versatile, weirdo country folk, cracked blues, vintage melancholy pop reminiscent of the FLAMING GROOVIES, BO DIDDLEY, MODERN LOVERS or so many others. It holds you like a octopus. You want to get out first, but then crawl back cause the world out there is worse. The GOLDEN BOYS are our favorite first "now" band we reissue with no open questions at all. They may not be handsome. Check. They may not be in their twenties anymore. Check. Drummer quits the band to take greyhound bus back to Texas after the show. Check. Haha, they´re everything we love. "Whiskey Flower" is their second album, originally released in 2007 on Hook or Crook, US. The original first and only print run is gone. Thanks to Chris/Hook and Crook and the GOLDEN BOYS - we´re here to reissue this highlight now. Take a note that we also release their upcoming 4th album "Electric Wolfman" in co-operation with Daggerman Records end of this summer 2009. In our little fan rocknroll paper doll world, the GOLDEN BOYS dressed as some undefined pretentious misled religious carpenters, sitting near the fields asking for a ride to get outta here to play a show with DEADLY SNAKES and REIGNING SOUND. We spin the vinyl when a new bottle of wine is opened, when we have to party and our hearts got broken. Now is our job to give europe, the world or just you another chance. Take it and give them as place to sleep when you these vagabonds. Stomp loud that we can welcome them with all their fuzzy organs, horns, melodeons, trumpets, fiddles, their desparate singing for the lonesome though rowdy songs. Limited edition 500 copies. That night, we expected them as premium handcraft rocknroll swagger, we´re tired from walking around town and talking friends into joining but the GOLDEN BOYS just swept away all expectations, exhaustion, plans, talk - as time stops - nothing matters anymore.
