Barb Wire Dolls - Some Info

From their Facebook page 


Fueled by a demand for change, a new punk rock revolution inspired by the original seeds of '77 Punk (Sex Pistols, Ramones, Clash, Blondie) is exploding onto the music scene, and this 'back to the roots' loud, wild, and furious attack is being welcomed openly this time around. Hailing from the Birthplace of Democracy, Greece’s first ever punk import to the USA, a band that in just a few months ignited and spearheaded an entirely new punk movement on the once wild streets of Los Angeles, is the girl-fronted fire-like phenomenon known as Barb Wire Dolls. "Their (Barb Wire Dolls) music carries a message, much like the anarchy of the Sex Pistols, but without the “no future for you” aspect of it" writes the UK's Mudkiss Magazine. "Greece is on the verge of bankruptcy but before they went belly up they sent us Barb Wire Dolls, a punk rock band deeply influenced by New York and London in the 1970's" writes Rock NYC. Being compared live on stage to "a cross between Blondie and The Sex Pistols" and described as “kinda like a girl-fronted Green Day”, Barb Wire Dolls made history by being the first punk band from Greece to play in America at their sold out show at the Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip. "This is just what the world needs now, a good girl-fronted punk band" says Charlotte Cooper of the UK's Subways. 

"Barb Wire Dolls are going to take over the world. The world needs their music and attitude. Everything is so lame and boring and these punks are a breath of fresh air. Take it from me, I've been around and experienced and lived all the scenes from the past 30 years from London to Seattle. I feel the change and it's called Barb Wire Dolls! They are the next fucking Nirvana!" After being discovered and played non-stop on L.A.'s world famous KROQ radio station by Rodney Bingenheimer (aka Rodney On The Roq) who has been instrumental in launching careers of such bands as The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Clash, Blondie, Nirvana and numerous other popular 'take it to the street' rock bands" writes Dainty Seventyseven and Hollywood Weekly Magazine about Barb Wire Dolls and while still living in an artist commune on the Greek island of Crete, the band sold all and flew across the Atlantic to the bright city lights of Los Angeles' Sunset Strip where L.A. Punk (Germs, X, The Bags) first started. "Every few years or so a band comes along that changes the music landscape. They are different from the other bands that are out there. They bring something new and exciting to an otherwise generic music scene that the public has grown tired of. The Beatles did this, The Sex Pistols did this, Gun's and Roses did this, Nirvana did this. But for the past 20 years no band has been able to stand out from their predecessors. No band has been able to re-ignite the music scene, to bring back the energy it once had....that is until now. With their sound, their look and their attitude, Barb Wire Dolls are going to do what no band has been able to do within the last two decades...take the music industry by storm" writes Sugarbuzz Magazine.

"Look Out America, here come the Barb Wire Dolls!" - Punk Globe Magazine. With three independent releases out and after multiple record label offers, Barb Wire Dolls signed with legendary A&R executive Tom Zutaut (GNR, Metallica, Motley Crue, X, PIL) for management and are keeping with their D.I.Y. ethic for future releases. A new 7" Single and full-length album are set to be released in the fall of 2012 while the band continues to discover the States. With a "search and destroy" attitude they are giving all they got taking their punk rock gospel on the road proclaiming: "the revolution has begun, so what the hell are you gonna do?!" Get ready to rock, riot, and rip it up 'cause Barb Wire Dolls and the New Wave of Punk may be hitting up your town next.

Barb Wire Dolls are: Isis Queen (singer), Pyn Doll (guitarist), Voodoo Doll (bassist), Krash Doll (drummer)

Tonight! PATAC Records (Tune in Sunday, March 25 at 9pm cst)


I recently caught up with Dan PATAC of, can you guess?? PATAC Records for an interview via email, here's what he had to say.
How long has PATAC Records been around?
Since 2008, 4 years.

What got you interested in starting your own label?
I worked for a record store for close to ten years, which of course turns you into a pretentious record collector nerd/critic, so the idea of starting a label was an idea that was in the back of my mind for a long time.  The label itself started in 2008, when I heard the demo recording of my friends' band REVILERS, this would eventually become my first release, the ISOLATION EP.  The idea was to start a label with no clear-cut boundaries, a truly punk label in the vein of Alternative Tentacles, Amphetamine Reptile, etc.  Whether it is hardcore, punkrock, metal, crust, garage rock, whatever, if I like the record, I want to release it.

Over the course of time I worked at the record stores, I saw the environment change, CD sales withered up and died, vinyl resurgence and the rise of the digital download, which I still don't truly understand.  I am a collector, nothing beats the feeling of going to a show, checking out the distro table and blindly buying some records with skulls on the covers.  The packaging, the color of the vinyl, the production, the inserts, everything... this is something that cannot be replicated by an mp3, for this reason, moving forth, I intend to include a digital download with the record for portability's sake.

What does PATAC Records look for when signing a new band?
When 'signing' a band, I need to stand behind them 100%, if I don't understand or back a band fully, they're not a PATAC band.  I'm looking to release great records that kick ass, are limited and geared towards TRUE music enthusiasts, I'm not looking to cash in on the latest trend and especially not cluttered with a bunch of tired political rhetoric.  The world is going to shit, I'm pretty sure that most people listening to my releases are aware of that, the last thing I want to promote are a bunch of trustfund 'upper-crustie' babies dressing up and donning a stupid costume and recycling old CRASS lyrics.  There's a reason why I released each record, PanzerBastard for my love of d-beats and flying v's, Executioner since they are the best 'class of 82' hardcore band that was never properly documented, AxCx... though controversial, my friendship with Seth Putnam, our shared love of Negative Approach, similar 'no holds barred' senses of humor and their total embodiment of a true DIY band, made releasing their FUCKIN A album a no brainer.

What do you dig about being in the music industry?
Through running the distro and meeting great bands, I came in to contact with Deceased, Rawhide, Strong Intention, Fistula, the list goes on.  The most satisfying part of doing the label, has been befriending these bands and working with them to promote and open new opportunities for everyone involved, I cannot be more grateful for this.

What can we expect from PATAC Records in this year?
Expect a ton of new releases this year, I just recently released the REVILERS full length so it's cool to see things go back to the band that caused me to get the label off the ground, they just recently opened for a sold out show with the Dropkick Murphys in Boston and playing a gig with hardcore legends SLAPSHOT, Panzerbastard (PATAC labelmates) and For The Worse (of which I released a split 7" back in 2009.)  Before that I released Rawhide from Sweden, a 12" from Fistula, a split 7" with Rampant Decay and Kruds and a 10" from Panzerbastard.  Up next, I have a 7" from STRONG INTENTION featuring vocals from Mike IX Williams from EYEHATEGOD, as well as full lengths from Rampant Decay and Fast Death.

Basement Records Promo tonight at 9pm cst Hosted by Jacks Insanity


how long has basement records  been around?

Been around for about 11 years. Started the label in early 2001.

what got you interested in starting your own label?

Had been working for a local indie label but they weren’t going in the direction I was hoping too. So I decided to branch out a start Basement Records on my own and use the connections I had from working for that label as well as the people I had met playing in my band at that time. Started my own publishing company about 5 years later along with buying a rehearsal and recording studio (I have since sold the rehearsal studio but still do recordings, producing and mastering at my own place in La Habra).

Basement Records on Facebook.

are you involved in any foundations/charities?

Im not too involved with anyone specific. I do however always contribute records, & other things to a lot of college radio stations and fund raisers. We’ve also done a few things here and there with local schools and their music programs, Ive had students come to my studio and earn school credits and things like that. Have had special needs kids come in and do what I can to help them. Its amazing how music affects people in different ways, that’s always a pleasure.

what do you look for when signing a new band?

There’s a number of things, aside from the obvious (can they play, write songs, and sound good). Is the band personable, are they dedicated and professional. And by professional I don’t mean you have nice gear, I mean do they show up on time, don’t come up with excuses and are generally really good people. I can teach someone how to play a guitar part I can’t teach someone not to be an asshole. haha

are you looking to sign new bands?

I always have my eyes open, but having been doing so much producing the last couple years, Im not as actively out looking. Although that could change on any given moment. But like I said I tend to work with people Ive built a relationship. I appreciate the bands who I demo’d stuff for a couple years ago only to see them come in the studio now and work with me and have the whole ball of wax together. That’s a lot more comforting than just signing a band I get a good mp3 sent to me in an email.

have you ever just gotten sick of music? briefly explain.

I don’t know that I’ve ever gotten sick of music, but I do tend to distance myself from it from time to time. Especially on my free time, I’m a big sports nut and follow baseball, basketball, football, mma, etc. I listen to more sports talk radio then any rock station. It keeps me more focused on things when I am in the studio or working on a release. I think playing is harder to keep focused than the business side. I mean doing my band thing with Bullet Treatment is a lot harder to deal with than day to day operations of Basement Records. I think that’s why Bullet Treatment sounds the way it does gives me the total release to play fast and aggressive and get some tension out.

Bullet Treatment, live

how would you define the basement record  sound?

For the most part it’s been straight up punk rock for the last ten years, but I think I’m starting to mix things up a bit. Having the publishing company and working with a slew of non punk related acts I’ve started to consider releasing something a little off base here and there. For instance on the new digital comp. (the Free one you get if you like us on Facebook) the last track is from a project called Revolving Door and it’s all acoustically based music and really good stuff, so I’m planning on releasing that album hopefully within the next year.
