Hellride reviews MBR catalog

Hellride music recently went through our entire catalog and posted reviews. Here is what Jay Snyder had to say:

Martin Hill who put out twang-y, Minutemen inspired upstarts Birds Mile Home (please do check them out) has really fired up the coal as far as his label is concerned. I got a nice, fat care package with 4 immaculately designed vinyls inside. Righteous!

The Trashies in retrotrashdom

The Trashies Space Jam has been released to the masses and comes on yellow with brown splatter vinyl.

Here is some classic footage of these slumlords:
Here is a review of space jam:

A few years back The Stranger out of Seattle did a tour diary with The Trashies it was a pretty crazy ride.

Independent reviews Space Jam asThe Trashies Hit #1 on the chart


The Trashies 

Space Jam

Space Jam is the latest offering from the godfathers of Northwest trashcore (NWTC, suckers!) The Trashies. After a multiple year hiatus these dirty dogs return with an impressive album that reeks of spilled PBR, weed smoke and dirty laundry. I have to admit that back in the early days of the band I wasn't entirely sold, but it didn't take more than an impressively sweaty and destructive show or two for me to stop worrying, and love The Trashies.


The 11 tracks clock in at well under 30 minutes and while there's a clunker or two scattered throughout, the end result is nothing less than solid. "Paved Reality" is a Pere Ubu-esque earworm that smacks of apocalyptic anxiety. The Bo Diddley beat behind "Destroy" makes me want to do exactly that—but in a calm, calculated manner. It's a weird feeling. While many a band has failed at attempts to dub out, the tense echoes of "Bugsmoker" work here. The stop-and-go trashcore anthem "White Mold" is bound to inspire a few fists in the air when these dudes get trashed at Total Fest X. Don't miss it.
The Trashies play Total Fest X Saturday, August 20. Go to totalfest.org for more info on the festival.

Recent review(s) of Bird's Mile Home's self titled LP.

MaximumRocknRoll, January 2011, #332

Lp Review
"Most of you fellow MRR readers will not like this album. But for those of you out there who won't stop reading this review upon first mention of "folk punk" we have something here for you. This is way more folk than punk; in fact it's not all that punk at all. But it's gritty, it's raw and it's really well orchestrated. The songwriting is good and the lyrics are thoughtful and poetic. In a musical genre dominated by really annoying kids and bands this feels fresh. Make no bones about it, this is folk music, but if you're on the lookout for the cutting edge of folk music, check out these Montana kids. (Fred Schrunk)

Back to the start

This post should have happened a log time ago.....Bird's Mile Home are one of the best bands in Missoula, thus why I released their record. Here is a vid of them at the Palace in Missoula.... good live footage highlights an original "A Walk Goodbye" and a cover of The Dwarves "One Time Only". 


Here is a link to a review:

Lately here for general perusal by Timmy ArrowTop

Marty asked me to write here occasionally since he's so goddamn busy doing other things here and there. So I will on occasion occasionally write here from time to time! Ha! So:

As you may know readin' this here ol' blog, Minor Bird release 002 has been seemingly and resoundingly successful since its dee-butt this past month. Despite the release show at the Bike Doctor being shut down and subsequently Goddammitboyhowdy being not able to play, things turned out alright. Good vibeadaccio and good times were had and the 7 inch is garnering some delicious reviews. I personally dig the hell out of this record. "Goddammitboyhowdy is Rez Punk" is a damn fine record! But just as Geordie LaForge would say: "Don't take my word for it:"

Also, soonly soonly release number three will soonly hit the public's face like so much awesome face smashery! and that will be Ambassador Gun's "Rich". It's brutal, immediate, succinct and perfunct! Them's adjectives I don't really use and that's how good it is. That'll be April 8th, I believe. And don't forget Squalora's next release as well, and that will be out at the end of April. Shit's happening and chopping something fast, ayuh! Ok, next time I'll get some cool stuff on this, like resources, labels, bands, Missoula shit, Montana shit. Yum yum yum. See ya!

What's coming!!

Hey All,

I still cannot believe that I have a blog. I am still fighting the facebook and myspace things y'all use.

Anyway, we received MBR-003 in the mail last week and they are all put together and going to be release by the band at a show in Minneapolis on April 22nd. MBR-003 once again is Ambassador Gun, from the aforementioned Minneapolis, and is titled "Rich". The band put this artwork together and it looks KILLER!

MBR-004 Squalora's "Hell is Other People" is at the plant and will be released May 6th.

MBR-005 is in the process of getting ordered and I will update on this in the future. For fans of the Spits, Red Crayola, 13th Floor Elevators........maybe I am giving too much away.

I am excited......hope you all are too.
