Four years have gone by since Nikki, Jessi, and Kelley Darlin spat in their palms and slapped hands in a three-way promise that would become Those Darlins. Since then, they’ve broken hearts and broken bones, all the while honing their chops and gaining a lifetime of experiences through endless touring: bros to the bitter end. Screws Get Loose is their second album--and the first to show off drummer Linwood Regensburg stepping up as a songwriter. Each song bears the scars of the highs and lows they’ve soldiered through together on the road, accentuating the realities of growing up in a rock and roll band.
This latest collection of songs reveals the Darlins’ road-weary and hardened spirits as the full-throttle charge of their freewheeling early anthems, such as “Red Light Love” and “Wild One,” has faded into the clarity and the life lessons of , “Let You Down," “Be Your Bro,” and the album's title track. In "Be Your Bro," Jessi sings “I just wanna be your brother, you just wanna be my boyfriend. I just wanna run and play in the dirt with you, you just wanna stick it in.” It’s the kind of lyric that any woman can relate to, and the kind of writing that tells a story with just enough detail to make your mind fill in the blanks and make it your own. But the album’s true tone culminates in the distant yearning of “Waste Away": “What happened that makes you wanna go face first into the ground? What happened to me that I keep followin' you around?”
Peelander-Z, the Japanese Action Comic Punk Band, was originally formed by Peelander-Yellow, Peelander-Red and Peelander-Blue (claim they are from Z area in the Planet Peelander!!) in 1998, and came into action based in NYC.
However, Peelander-Blue had to leave the Earth after 10 years of mission, in order to be new king of Planet Peelander. Then Peelander-Z welcomed Peelander-Green in July 2008, and became newly reborn and powerful Peelander-Z more than ever!!
These three dress up in color-coordinated costumes about as if they came out of Japanese Animation (claim those are not costumes, but the skin!!!) put on a fun entertainment. Yes, their performance is not just playing music. Have you heard of human bowling, wrestling and kung-fu action, or funny dance at the punk rock show? Peelander-Z knows how to entertain the audience by dragging them into the show. One experience would capture you!! Peelander-Z is the best of the universe!
