Great Apes
Brian Moss, Matthew Kadi, Ryan Marshall, Chris Chapel
-from San Francisco, CA

-Insert hype-up descriptors here. Plain and simple, Great Apes are a punk band from San Francisco. Minimalism reigns. Play it fast, play it loud, and make it stick. While we all have been or are in an array of more complex projects, this band is founded on pop-sensible simplicity and the notion that music, much like a bio, is often at its finest when it’s spit out intensely, with concision and honesty.

-The Sunset Shipwreck-
Everything dies: heroes & hobos, pets & parents, friends, enemies, bands and even cities. In the case of today’s topic, The Sunset Shipwrecks, they were born out of the ashes of the demise of these last two. After the dissolution of the long running punk mainstays American Steel (Fat Wreck Chords, Lookout Records), guitarist and co-vocalist Ryan Massey had all but decided to give up the ghost and settle into post-rock and roll bliss in his native San Francisco. But a funny thing happened on the way to retirement: San Francisco up and died too. With a plague of tech bros and the subsequent skyrocketing cost of living that accompanies the death knell of a livable community, Massey found himself forced to move out of the house he’d called home for over a decade, and out of SF altogether. Uprooted, angry and bursting with a restless, reckless energy, what’s an old punk to do? Well, if you’re Ryan Massey, you round up Am Steel alum Scott Healy, and SF scene fixtures Brian Miu and Sean Reilly, and you channel your angst into The Sunset Shipwrecks, a band as unrepentantly no-modifier-needed rock and roll as anyone’s seen in years. Next, you record Community, a 10 song banger packed with angst, rage, betrayal, hooks and riffs, and you revive your recently defunct Lugosi Records imprint in order to get your angry message of cosmic heartbreak out to the people.
