Image Adam E. here with today's new reviews. We're only two days away from Thanksgiving, and you all know what that means... Shopping! As soon as you finish that turkey, or turducken, or tofurkey, it's time to dive headfirst into holiday shopping by joining an angry mob on the hunt for bargains. Just remember, when you find yourself facing off against a fellow shopper for the last deeply discounted Blu-Ray player, mercy is for losers.

Streams: Really Red announce massive reissue series

Posted by johng on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at 4:00 PM (EST)
Really Red Punknews is extremely excited to announce that famed agit-punks Really Red are going to reissue their entire catalog. Really Red made a name for themselves in the early '80s Texas scene by fusing a post-punk texture into the hardcore punk scene, espousing a radically leftist view point, and playing alongside bands like The Dicks and Big Boys.

Well, on January 20, Alternative Tentacles Records will release a three volume set comprising every single officially released Really Red track, along with some never before released tunes. The collection will be sold as a two CD set or as three individual vinyl records.

Volume 1: Teaching You The Fear includes the band's first LP. Volume 2: Rest In Pain is the band's second LP that has been out of print for 30 years. Volume 3: News Strings For Old Puppets collects the band's singles as well as unreleased tracks, including the "Modern Needs" and "Crowd Control" singles as well as a never-released track that has survived only on a cassette found in Jello Biafra's personal collection. The entire set was remastered by Jello Biafra himself.

Plus, we've got an extra little treat. Right now, almost two months before the release date, we're streaming two of the band's remastered tracks. You can check out "Teaching You the Fear" and "Too Political" on the band's Punknews.org Profile.

Bouncing Souls Those NJ mooches, the Bouncing Souls, are looking for a singer. And a guitarist. And a drummer. And a bassist. In anticipation of their upcoming Home for the Holidays shows (Dec. 26, 27, and 28) in Asbury Park, the band is asking fans to submit videos of them performing the Souls' songs playing the instrument of their choice. Via a Facebook post, the band explained:

"On Friday December 26th we will choose one vocalist to perform a song of his/her choice with the band! On Saturday December 27th we will choose one vocalist and one other person playing the instrument of their choice (guitar, bass, or drums) each to play the song of their choice. On Sunday December 28th we'll choose one vocalist, one guitar player, one bassist, and one drummer (each playing a song of their choice with the rest of the Souls)! Anything is possible!"

Fans who are planning on attending one of the shows can send a video to the band at HomeForTheHolidays2014contest@gmail.com. Winners will be chosen on Dec. 17.

The band's last full-length, Comet, was released in 2012.
