Eggman: “Cube Zero”


This past weekend at the annual Black Sheep Band Lotto a complete shock to us all was the release of a limited run of 25 lathe cut records from band #3, going by the name “EGGMAN”. Tonight we are bringing you the recordings of EGGMAN from that lathe cut record, so even all of you who weren’t lucky enough to pick up this rare piece of Springfield music history can still be fortunate enough to get to listen to the Eggman’s recordings. Stream EGGMAN’S release “Cube Zero” on the player below. There are two tracks for each side of the late cut, but five songs are there total. Also head over to Eggman’s bandcamp page to download the release at your own price.

Eggman does not have any more shows lined up. Will Springfield ever see another Eggman performance? This release does in fact count towards our 2018 list of Springfield releases in our ultimate Springfield album archive.

MAC: “No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs”


Today we are bringing you a stream of the hot new four-track EP from Springfield punk rock group “MAC“. The EP is called No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs. Why is their EP called that? Here is a description from the band’s facebook:

These were signs that hung on businesses windows in London the the 60s, 70s and the early 80s. Anti Irish discrimination was always part of the Irish/British history, it dates back to over 800 years ago. From the ’60s all the way through to the ’90s was a period in Irish history known as “The Troubles”. During this time it became increasingly hard for Irish people to live in the UK. The British government pushed their anti Irish scare because of the actions of the IRA and Irish were branded as drunks and terrorists. Being Irish myself, I have felt this discrimination in England. As a small child, I was beaten in my own backgarden by a random person, for no other reason only because I was Irish. Til this day there is still many who hold this view. I dont think I’ve been to the UK a single time without being called a Paddy Bastard.
As you can see on these posters it wasn’t any different for anyone else, be it black or brown. 

Stream the full EP on the player below, also head on over to MAC’s bandcamp page to purchase the download. MAC do not have any shows currently lined up that we know of – they did just play the Black Sheep Halloween show this past week.

We are currently building up everything that has been released in Springfield on our Springfield Album Archive Page!
