In May 2001, working in the living room of a friend's house, they produced their very first demo. Drummer Dave Bartlett joined the band in early 2014, rounding out their already powerful sound.

Completely raging 7inch EP blasts from THE RAYDIOS (feat. Fink from TEENEGENERATE!) and THE PENETRATORS, and one soon-to-be classic LP from DIRTY FENCES are OUT NOW!

Satisfying a youthful obsession with early KISS and Motley Cr�e, then discovering the fortunate truth of The Dictators and Ramones, DIRTY FENCES have finally slammed into the Slovenly path with the "Full Tramp" LP. Brooklyn is the launching pad, and following a previous full length, a few singles and a few transcontinental tours, Dirty Fences got their shit on lockdown. "Full Tramp" has got the biggest balls of them all, and each song is study in what makes a song just right without ever losing sight of what makes an album worth listening to. But when it comes down to it, it's the really their slime factor that got us on board, and this record is the festering manifestation of your love encrusted bed sheets headed to the wash.

Although the Raydios have released scads of good records since reforming sometime in the mid-aughts, they may have just outdone themselves with their new single "Brand New Kid" b/w "My Way Back Home" - co-released by Slovenly Recordings and Tokyo's Mangrove label! Around two years ago, after TEENGENERATE played a reunion show to celebrate the release of their "Get Action" documentary, Fink mentioned that playing in TG gave him the itch to start writing simpler, more straight-forward songs again, and that's just what he's done with "Brand New Kid." The song doesn't waste any time, kicking off with the fury of a head-hunting boxer, while the flip side, "My Way Back Home" is a bit more of a slow burner, but packing a hell of a wallop in its own right. You're gonna be in need the number of a good oral surgeon once this one is over, guaranteed! - Steve Borchardt, Superfan


She's The Kinda Girl

Slovenly Recordings is amped to announce a new single from our long time heroes THE PENETRATORS! This is the first new material from the native Syracuse, NY punk rock lifers since their 2008 Slovenly long player "Bad Woman," and the two tracks here are just as demented as their legendary 70s / 80s sessions. "She's the Kinda Girl" is lascivious cave-punk, showing The Penetrators' uncanny knack for always sounding like themselves, while the strangely robotic flipside "Take A Stand" is the new anthem urging you to STAND UP AND GIVE A DAMN! A super fine slab from the original Kings of Basement Rock!

I hope everyone will take this information to heart, and make sure you do not have a "smart" meter on your home and/or business. If you do, it may be that everyone in the building is constantly in danger of dying in a fire, including children and pets. A fire could start when you are away from your home, perhaps at work or on vacation. Please call your power company and insist that you get a safe, analog meter to measure your electricity. That, unlike the "Spy and Fry" meters, would be truly smart.
