Our man Back Pages is back with you rightly guessed it – another new EP! The Orlando lone teen shredder’s Various is a mix of three acoustic recordings and one with the full band. In fact, these guys opened for NOTS last month and check on that video footage if you haven’t.
And there are Back Pages compilation tapes – Singles 13 – available on our do-worthy label KLYAM Records. That’s a lotta Back Pages, just how we like it.
Couple nights ago at Uncle Lou’s, perpetual Band of the Week / teenage rock ‘n roll scholar Back Pages slaughterhoused with his spicy ‘rage-punk. Check out this video of his performance. Keep ya eyes peeled for an upcoming BP tape release on our very own KLYAM RECORDS.
Bedroom garage punk performed by young DIY multi-instrumentalists seems to be a growing thing in modern punk slime. And rightfully so. The Back Pages – KC Allen, 16 yrs old, Orlando, Florida – has made his own fascinating contributions to the cause. With quickly spouted lines of angst, machine gun esque rhythm guitar, he’s well-versed in Jay Reatardelia circa 2006-2008. It’s not just his playing which is impressive, but like Jay, he’s got the production side of things down to a pseudoscience.
There are currently three releases (one a month starting in August) up on the The Back Pages Bandcamp – “JuSst Tthat Stuipod”, “Break It All Off,” and the most recent “Darkness Creeps Over.” If we’re into picking favorites, I’ll hold off, but I’ll say I’m real real real into “Destined To Be Miserable,” as it grows grows grows and pounds pounds pounds like a righteous Ty Melted ditty, showing off songcraft that moves beyond the great terrain of Aussie accents and punk pop melody into instant four chord fuzzzzzzzz.
Down in Orlando while some teenager is waiting in a 90 minute line to go on the Tower of Terror, another teenanger is masterminding his own 2-3 minute self-made rides of terror. You don’t need to worry about puking to Back Pages!
