Stereo-fed on the blood and sweat of early Californian punk history, a period which barfed forth influential pre-hardcore/pro-punk provocateurs like The Germs, Angry Samoans and The Dead Kennedys, Oakland's Nopes spring from similar Suburbian dungeons, hearts burning with the fun and fury of being young, gifted and ultimately unaccountable.
Recorded by Jack Shirley (Deafheavan, Boss-De-Nage) at the Atomic Garden Recording Studio in East Palo Alto, California and mastered by Will Killingsworth (Orchid, Ampere, Bucket Full of Teeth) their soon to be release debut EP Nectar of the Dogs on the New York label Magnetic Eye Records comes fueled by wanton sugar intake, corner store liquor and a well-worn copy of Bad Brains Rock for Light.
Featuring Matthew Hansen (Guitars), Alex Petralia (Vocals), Kevin Quijivix-Sweeney (Bass) and Gabe Simmons (Drums) tracks like 'Matinee at the Market', 'Love Cycle (All Sales Final)' and 'Jingle Berries' are blasts of raw punk energy that explode out of a vacuum into guitar-buzz, amp fuzz and juvenile delinquency. One EP, five songs, spanning nine minutes, played out by four Bay Area dudes, Nopes Nectar of the Dogs will be officially released on the 16th of June 2015 via Magnetic Eye Records
