If you thought The Thunder Zone Kickback
was over, you are out of your goddamn mind! We are back for the month of January 2K15 and we are giving away ALL THE ENERGY DRINKS WE HAVE LEFT IN STOCK
. This is not a joke, this is not a game, this is real life. Also, special guest JX CANNON
is gonna be “throwing down” a sick set of whatever the “f” he feels like. Fuck it, drink an energy drink
. Get zooted. The Thunder Zone Kickback January 2K15: real life.
CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO BELOW IF YOU REALLY WANNA UNDERSTAND WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT…
Above are two clips of JUICEBOXXX AND THE CALIFORNIA DREAMS BAND
(featuring members of Abe Vigoda
) live in 2013 at the legendary KIBITZ ROOM
inside of CANTERS DELI
. If you don’t know about The Kibitz/Canters, do some research, this is Rock And Roll 101, people… We are talking Guns N’ Roses
Anyways, 2013 was a weird year from me (they are all weird years, no doubt, but… Winter 2K13 was legendary) and this video is one of the few live shows I played for the first 6 months of that year. Total insanity, that night featured performances from BLOK and Snow Wite, plus a chaotic DJ set by Stevie and Alex from WAVVES. These videos (released as a “bootleg” by Viper Video) only scratch the surface, but it is a scratch regardless.
Drink these two things in and remember that the neverending American pop music saga that is Juiceboxxx and Thunder Zone is no joke… 2K15 I’m done hitting myself on the head with a microphone because I can’t go out like that man, I can’t go out like that. Keep it positive.

2014 was another crazy year deep inside THE THUNDER ZONE
and I gotta say, I’ve come out of it positive despite all the insanity and darkness. The world is a fucked up place but we can still dream. I’m still here and more siked than ever to keep doing my thing… One day at a time.
I spent a lot of time in 2014 working on a new record (HEARTLAND 99) and a new mixtape (HIGHWAY TO THE HEARTLAND) in the big city. I’m really excited to share this new music with you in 2K15. It’s all coming soon and it’s all another chapter in the neverending American pop music saga that is JUICEBOXXX and THE THUNDER ZONE.
This year I was a part of a “viral shitstorm,” played a show at MOMA PS1, toured Japan, Korea and North America and kept on releasing crazy music and culture on my label THUNDER ZONE (collaborations with Lil Ugly Mane, Schwarz, Issue, DJ George Costanza and more). In addition to that shit, I was also on the cover of NYC’s SEX MAGAZINE and had an article about me in highbrow NYC lit journal N+1. The article in N+1 was an excerpt from a book about me (WTF), coming out next year on Melville House. Noisey also had some things to say.
A lot of other shit happened too. I moved around a ton, slept on the floor behind a bar for a few months in Far Rockaway, Queens, threw some parties, lost my mind a few times… Probably also a lot of other shit I can’t remember.
I don’t know what’s going to happen but I’m keeping the faith and I’m trying to keep running and making American music for kids of all ages to freak out to. Out of the darkness my man, into THE THUNDER ZONE.
Has the world gone crazy? Juiceboxxx in the newest issue of highbrow NYC lit mag N+1
? It happened and I have proof. This fucker is on newsstands right now, 20+ pages of information and origin mythology by Leon Neyfakh of Oak Park, Illinois. Go cop that shit… THE THUNDER ZONE
transcends all of your petty classifications even though we get no goddamn respect ever.
THIS FRIDAY I will be djing at the N+1 issue launch party at Signal in Brooklyn, New York City. Check out the Facebook event RIGHT HERE.
Open Up Your Life, don’t give up. The world is F’d up my dude but dreaming is important. Every Day Is A New Day. Enter The Thunder Zone.
My no-rules “lifestyle brand” (LOL) THUNDER ZONE is back at it again with that sick shit that all you kids crave… That’s right, due to popular demand we are making more LIL UGLY MANE longsleeves, but we aren’t just reprinting the already-classic SEND EM 2 THE ESSENCE design, nah my dude… That would be too easy.
We are FLIPPING that design on it’s head, keeping some elements (front design) but changing most (colorway, sleeves, back)… The result is something that might just be the sickest piece of UGLY MANE merch we have done to date, of course designed by UGLY MANE HIMSELF, and, of course, LIMITED EDITION.
You can order your longsleeve right here, right now. We are going to have a pre-order up for around a month, then things are 100 percent dunzo (or maybe not, maybe we will make a few more… but don’t count on it). Regardless, keep running and trying to figure out this wild thing that we call “life.”
GO KEEP UP WITH THE UGLY MANE BOX SET SAGA ON THE ORMOLYCKA FACEBOOK!
