Dealing in fast, streamlined punk rock with ringing guitars, simple but effective melodic hooks, and a double dose of energy, Radioactivity were formed in 2013 by Jeff Burke and Mark Ryan, who had previously worked together in the well-respected garage punk band the Marked Men. Radioactivity began as a spinoff of the Novice, a band Burke worked with from 2010 to 2012 while he was living in Japan. When Burke returned to the United States and settled in Denton, Texas, he didn't want to let the songs he wrote for the Novice go to waste, so he reworked them and assembled a new band as a platform for the material. With Burke on guitar and vocals, Ryan on bass and vocals, and Gregory Rutherford on drums, Burke named the new band Radioactivity, and they cut a self-titled debut for Dirtnap Records that was released in October 2013. The group supported the album with live work, though they emphasized that they wanted to be known as a good band rather than a good local band, and aimed for quality over quantity when booking shows. Burke and Ryan also opened their own recording studio, Cool Devices, which allowed Radioactivity to have a convenient spot to work on new material, as well as making it easier for their other projects to record; Ryan is also leader of the Mind Spiders, while Burke also records solo material. Guitarist Daniel Fried (also a member of Bad Sports and Video) joined the band prior to the recording of Radioactivity's second album, Silent Kill, which was released by Dirtnap on June 30, 2015. - http://www.allmusic.com

Bad Sports
Hailing from Denton, Texas, Bad Sports are a band whose music is a powerful fusion of punk rock velocity and attitude, hard rock guitar raunch, and power pop hooks. Influenced by old-school punk bands like the Ramones and the Buzzcocks as well as the '70s hard rock that's an unavoidable presence in their home town, Bad Sports feature Orville Neeley (also a member of OBN IIIs) on guitar and vocals, TV's Daniel Fried (who also plays in Wax Museums) on bass and vocals, and Gregory Rutherford (also doing double duty in Wax Museums) on drums. In 2008, the band began spreading the word about their music with a handful of 7" vinyl releases on Big Action Records and Boom Chick Records, and in the fall of 2009. the Atlanta-based Douchemaster label issued the band's self-titled debut album on CD, LP, and MP3 (it was also released on cassette by Burger Records). Plenty of touring followed, including a handful of dates with '70s power pop hero Paul Collins. In August 2011, Bad Sports teamed with Portland, Oregon's Dirtnap Records to release their second full-length album, Kings of the Weekend. - http://www.allmusic.com

No Problem
Once a man from Edmonton did six giant hits of acid and sat on the toilet to do a little light reading. He often skimmed through the newspaper’s headlines with a morbid curiosity for the obituaries. But today was different, the acid was quite strong, and when he looked at the recent entries he saw…his own name!!!! - http://www.derangedrecords.com/index.php/view-band/no_problem/
