What’s up, people. Got a long overdue THUNDER ZONE UPDATE coming your way. Been a busy fall no doubt no question. Where to start? You already know about THE THUNDER ZONE MUSIC ACADEMY and all of that shit (“the documentary” coming soon), but do you know about DOGS IN ECSTASY? Well, this might be too little too late but “Welcome 2 Hell” (TZ034) is out now on Thunder Zone and, in fact, tapes are sold out for the time being.
You can still dig into this fine release via all respected digital zones, though (cass repress soon). It is a masterpiece of 2015 style damaged electronic general MIDI power post rainbow rock insanity. For fans of Weezer and THEUSAISAMONSTER and maybe even freaked out PC Music style damage. Truly a singular pop rock record featuring longtime BOXXX collaborator Willy D. Fucking grip it and check out the video for “Do Me Ronnie” above.
On the publishing side of things, Thunder Zone also threw down a collaboration with the fresh American storyteller/artist NICK DEMARCO called “Here On Earth.” (TZ032) It is a full on shrinkwrapped screenplay that serves as a companion piece to his 2014 show at Interstate Projects. It features photos from the exhibition and even a poster. It is sick, a weird slice of soulful American culture and a perfect addition to the neverending Thunder Zone saga.. Buy one right now on the webstore or hit up FAMILY in LA for a copy. CHECK OUT A FRESH UNBOXING VIDEO FOR THE THING RIGHT HERE.
And that brings us to what is “on deck” for Zone… GODS LUCAS (TZ035) is the new collaborative tape/digital LP from young Western Mass legends DJ LUCAS and GODS WISDOM. This one right here! This is it. I’m so siked to present this piece of hard to classify Nu Americana to all you ragers out there. Really an “anything goes” type of record… The ideas (and hooks) are just motherfucking flowing. Anytown USA freakout magic that we can all believe in. Check out a music video (which, let it be known, premiered at THE FADER) below.
OK ALSO WE MADE MORE LIL UGLY MANE SHIRTS BUT THEY ARE ALMOST SOLD OUT AND ONE OF THEM IS A RINGER TEE (VERY ILL) BUT I WOULD JUST KEEP CHECKING THE WEBSTORE IF YOU WANNA COP… EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED THUNDER ZONE USA RIDING ON THE HIGHWAY STAYING ALIVE FUCK ALL THE BULLSHIT. EVERY DAY IS A NEW DAY TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND TRY TO BE BETTER, DON’T STOP FIGHTING EVEN IF IT KILLS YOU MAN, THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO FIND YOU AND FUCKING KILL YOU MAN. FUCK ALL THE BULLSHIT NEVER SURRENDER FOREVER ENTER THE THUNDER ZONE.
