Nobunny, First Blood
2010 | Label: Goner / Revolver

A few facts about Nobunny, in no particular order: the frontman's identity is a relative mystery. He plays shows in a weatherbeaten bunny mask — and often little else. His debut outing, Love Visions, was one of the most fun and rambunctious punk records of the last five years, it's Ramones-derived cover a good indication of the impish thrills inside. So if follow-up, First Blood is more of the same, who's complaining? The songs… read more »

Garage Rock’s Next Generation: 10 Bands to Watch

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

I'm at Psychfest in Austin, levitating around the fairgrounds, waiting for the Black Angels to come on between Roky Erikson of the 13th Floor Elevators and the long-awaited reunion of the Moving Sidewalks (featuring Billy Gibbons of Z.Z. Top), when someone asks me the what-if question: What if there was no album named Nuggets 40 years ago, in that interregnum before garage-rock had a name and place to park the guitar? I can only reply… more »

Label Profile: HoZac Records

By Austin L. Ray, Contributor

File Under: Trashy garage rock and punk, with a smattering of catchy pop Flagship Acts: Smith Westerns, Dum Dum Girls, Woven Bones, Box Elders, Wizzard Sleeve Based In: Chicago, Illinois In less than five years, Chicago's HoZac has released close to 80 records, and while it's easy to categorize the majority of that batch under the nebulous "garage/punk" umbrella, the label has dabbled in pop and folk as well. In fact, the Windy City imprint's catalog is all… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Most folks think bunnies are cute and harmless, but ask anyone who has a garden and you’ll get a different answer — rabbits are destructive little creatures who will devour anything in their path, and everyone knows that they’ll get busy with another willing bunny at the drop of a hat. Justin Champlin may call himself Nobunny, but there’s more than a little rabbit in this guy, and you can hear it loud and clear on his second album, First Blood. (The word “album” may be generous — the 11 songs spin by in less than 25 minutes — but we’ll let that slide this time.) First Blood is less aggressive and more playful than much of Nobunny’s earlier work, but he still leaves a trail of guitar noise and fractured pop hooks in his wake on several of these tunes, especially “Gone for Good” and “Motorhead with Me,” and while some of the other numbers are significantly more polite, there’s a mildly warped undertow to “Pretty Please Me” and “Pretty Little Trouble” that twists their playful surfaces into something a bit sharper and wilder. “(Do The) Fuck Yourself” sums up Nobunny’s sexual economy pretty well, while “Never Been Kissed” is less blunt but gives his lustful side a fair and open airing. And “I Was On (The Bozo Show)” is a memory from childhood that walks a fine line between nostalgia and reminding us why so many kids are creeped out by clowns. Nobunny handled most of the vocals and instruments himself on First Blood and even held down the engineering on three cuts, while Jason Testasecca’s recording and mixing skills allow this album to sound lo-fi in the right way without an excess of slop getting in the way of the music. If First Blood isn’t as frantic as the earlier Love Visions, one thing’s obvious — even when Nobunny is cute, this silly rabbit sure ain’t harmless. – Mark Deming
