The Defenders "Defender"

After blowing away Charlottesville, VA with their rowdy brand of rock n roll hi-jinks, The Vitamen relocated to NYC/Hoboken, NJ as a Whitney-less power trio. (as documented on the Metal Party '97" demo.)

In less than a year, the band was down to just Ben and Sam, and in a desperate attempt to hang on to their dilapidated rehearsal room they dubbed themselves the Little Lovers (during an intense AC/DC phase) and got to work. The Little Lovers immediately switched their name to The Defenders after they plugged in and ripped this epic 12 minute cover of Manowar's "Defender."

(PS. drag that picture down to your desktop to get a better look at Don Knotts and the exploding beer foam.)

Order of the Keys "Melodia" preview

Rudyland Records is pleased to announce that we have signed Raleigh, NC act Order of the Keys to an exclusive research and development deal. This band truly fits Rudyland's virtual band model as it features an NC vocalist and a drummer that currently resides in Germany. These two have been holding it down since their days helming VA kult act Nudibranch.

"Melodia" was recorded at the famous Tool & Die Studios in Richmond, VA by Dave Branch, who many of you may remember as the genius behind the original Vitamen demo.

Listen to two tracks here.

Watts Passage "Soft Rock Town" Video

Watts Pasage delivers some hard hitting bubblegum doom for the end of 2007 with "I Don't Want to Live...(In a Soft Rock Town)" the first single from 2008's NEW TRANSMISSION album. Rudyland's A/V club has sliced together footage from Jeff Krulik's "Neil Diamond Parking Lot" to bring you an exclusive music video. Long live the Boro, deth to Cville!

This year has been a roller coaster ride for the band after plans to complete their sci-fi epic CONQUEST TODAY were put on hold indefinitely. NEW TRANSMISSION will surely satisfy the band's core demographic with a heavy dose of blue ridge blugdeoning.

Rita Burrita "Old Money"

After an unspeakably long abscene, Rita Burrita returns with "Old Money" the follow up to "You Can't Tame." Talk about having a chip on your shoulder...but what a rockin', party startin' chip it is! The full length album, "Just When You Thought It Was Over" is scheduled for a fall 2011 release.

Fast cars, fine cigars
Credit cards and Georgetown bars
Blue blood and private schools
When you got cash, you make the rules.

Old Money!
That’s the name of the game!
Cause new money just ain’t the same!

I play lacrosse, I’m my own boss.
It don’t even matter if I take a loss.
Sippin’ scotch on the family yacht.
Don’t you wish ya had what I got?

Old Money!
That’s the name of the game!
Cause new money just ain’t the same!

I’m a man of wealth and taste.
Spend my summers in the Cape.
Won’t catch me at laguna beach.
I ain’t no Nouveau riche!

The Petitioners: "Pumpin Problem"

In February of 2004, the Petitioners produced their most deranged session ever in the form of the "Pumpin Problem" album. (recorded straight to handheld cassette recorder)

The title track is a cover of David Ball's "Thinkin Problem" and is sung from the perspective of Lou Ferigno, Franco Columbu, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the three principle characters from the "Pumping Iron" documentary.

Next up is the intergalactic epic "Pump Wars" , followed by a hyper charged rendition of Bobby Goldsboro's "Little Things" (as covered by Billy Gilman).

If these tunes don't produce a full moral collapse, please check out their MySpace page for the Buddy Rich version of "Over 30 (Need Not Apply)" also taken from these sessions.

Goth Jones' upcoming twelve song masterpiece, "Let It Pound" has recently been mastered by mastering master John Golden, and will be hitting digital and analog mailboxes nationwide in the coming months.

Meanwhile, work continues for album number FIVE and the doom boyz were kind enough to offer a sneak peek into their rehearsal space for a preview. Check out the brutality of "Another Day, Another Dollar"'s capitalist paranoia, and the musicality of Handi's latest pop nugget "The Lyricist."

Also, for the first time ever, the inner workings of Black Blood Records' financial strategists. No wonder Rudyland bought out this fledgling label!
