A Look in The Local Bin: The Whiffs

Another super group has emerged. Featuring members from Nubiles, Wet Ones, and The Conquerors, The Whiffs make music that is pure fun. Melting together bits of The Ramones, The Kinks, and The Strokes, the Kansas City four piece’s debut cassette, Take A Whiff!, boils with lyrical and instrumental energy. Starting with “Baby Tonight,” the cassette quickly […]

Record Store Day is this weekend. And while Mills Record Company will be slinging Record Store Day exclusives and non-Record Store Day vinyl all day, your favorite bands will be rocking out in the soon-to-be new store (4045 Broadway).

The Hussy, Wet Ones, Witch Jail, Kool 100s @ The RecordBar

This Friday, The RecordBar will host some of the most fun bands of KC supporting The Hussy, a Wisconsin psych/punk duo. All the bands muck up their funk with a distortion-laced grime that keeps things messy in the best of ways. Whether it’s Wet Ones‘ anthemic punk guitar-rolls, or Witch Jail‘s freak out fast-psych, or […]

It’s Our Birthday And We Can Rock If We Want To

Although the store has been open only two years, it has already done so much to solidify the idea that KC isn’t just another cow town.

This Thursday, Mills Record Company will host two fantastically noisy bands for an in store that is sure to shut down January with a bang. Mixing Drugs & Attics‘ behind-the-wall punk with Wet Ones‘ distortion heavy garage rock, the show will bop so hard the walls might break. Drugs & Attics split the difference between […]
