High energy garage rock'n'roll, The Spitfires, whose numerous recordings have been released on Junk Records, Estrus, Sonic Swirl, Tee Pee, Rockin' Bones, Yeah Right Records and more are a definitive staple of the Vancouver and PNW punk rock'n'roll scene and never fail to ignite the stage!
Birthed right here in sleepy ol' Abbotsford and weaned on cheap beer and the likes of the Dead Boys, Humpers, Pagans, etc. It's been stated that this band is what you get "if AC/DC retained the killer riffs and power they somehow lost with the death of Bon Scott and then fused it with punk energy". Another review once said, "Fuck groupies, blow and tour buses - for bands like the Spitfires rock'n'roll is more about broken bottles, skull-splitting hangovers and enough swagger to impress 70s-era Keith Richards."

LUCKY 13s from Portland features members of garage punk royalty, The Weaklings, Fireballs of Freedom as well as P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S.

MOTORAMA have been bangin' out hard, fast and brash punk rock'n'roll just about as long as our fore menioned hometown heroes and we're absolutely thrilled to have 'em open up this can of whoop ass!
