The band formed in 2013 when, after playing in various NYC projects, musicians Tex and Trevor decided to start their own project. At the time, they were practicing with a bass player. In need of vocals they posted a Craigslist ad. Armed with a friend as backup, the younger Jahnny Vommit agreed to meet some random dudes at a practice space. In less than 90 seconds they knew they had found a singer.Trevor developed a dual Frankenstein's monster guitar that covered the guitar and bass duties as the bass player quit before the first show. They describe their sound as scuzzy punk rock n' roll with songs that touch on topics of gender, politics or… just watching cartoons. The motto of the band is “Don't Be An Asshole" and everyone that follows that rule is welcome at a Heavy Negatives show. MORE:
INTERVIEW WITH THE WILSONS!
"The Wilsons was created in October 2014 when Andoni (guitar player from Disorders) and Potti (a good friend and partner in crime from high school who had been a drummer and lead singer in a couple of bands) came to visit me in Brooklyn. I have to say that at that time I was going through a tough time in NYC and these guys gave me the strength I needed to keep going. One morning, while Andoni and I were waking up after a long night out, we heard Potti humming a tune in the shower. It said something like “Remember Times in NYC…” so we got into my bedroom, grabbed my bass, a notebook, a pen and a bunch of beer and we didn’t go to sleep until we finished the song. The next day we rented the cheapest rehearsal studio at Sweatshop (Brooklyn) and recorded our first song: “Remember Times”. MORE:

Carpazine:Tell us the brief history of your band.
Tolga: Everything just started with Aybike and me. Our relationship is always creative.
Before we married, we had been jamming with our friends for fun. I was playing with my punk rock band, "Rashit", for 20 years and I got bored to be in a band in that time. We had just began to record experimental instrumental tracks with Aybike and made video collages for them under the name "Solar Chaos" who released an album for a Canadian record label: "Fuck Yr Body Up". After that, Aybike wrote some lyrics and we recorded four songs on a holiday trip, it's our family fun at the beginning. We changed our name to "Reptilians From Andromeda" and we got good feedback from Some US labels after we uploaded our songs to SoundCloud. We released four Ep's and an album in just three months. Everything was so fast. There is so much interest in us to see Reptilians From Andromeda playing live. MORE:

Death, drugs, and theft litter the broken and straightened streets of the Brasilia ghetto of Ceilândia. These images and realities also reside within the mind, spirit, and art of Doug Firmino. The moments and friendships of Ceilândia forged both the artist and his art. Friendships that introduced bands like: Ramones, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, The Clash, Danzig, Misfits, Zumbis do Espaço, Garotos Podres... It did not take long for the punk ideas running inside those friends to manifest.
“When I talk about my drawings, I have to talk about (my friends) and the punk movement, just because I keep spitting my shit life on the paper.”
If Doug Firmino’s friends were the ink his family was the paper. His cousins forced him to watch horror movies and in time he became a big fan of the genre. Favorites like the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, “Evil Dead”, “Halloween”... became an addiction. MORE:

Graffiti and punk rock drew skisms into the art world. Starting just four years ago painting his own jackets, this artist in England has ventured over the last year onto canvas and boards. “I don't see a lot of value in what I do, really, I just have an eye for copying stuff and juxtaposing it.” Here at CARPAZINE we think it not only has value, we think it’s pretty fucking cool.

Herman James is a pop-surreal painter making art that is often a scramble of the natural and the strange. His work has been characterized as “weird” and “insane” and much of it is definitely positioned outside the mainstream. The artist recalls with a laugh that his work has sometimes gotten him into trouble. For instance, he has been known to place human body parts in unnatural places on his figures, to the negative comment of some. James was born and raised in Portland, Oregon where he developed an abiding regard for nature. MORE:
