Anyway, here is the Maxines track “Honestly” that will appear on the comp. It’s so good - and you can order a copy from here (starting tomorrow).
Oh my goodness, The Maxines were just on Nardwuar the Human Serviette’s radio show on WFMU! This mayhem took place last Friday - it’s a 7”-only special show, complete with discussion spouse-bashing, sailor punk, young drummers, and lots of excellent jams (courtesy of Matt Murillo’s dreamy collection of 45s).
This show is a doozy, listen here: http://wfmu.org/flashplayer.php?version=2&show=42703&archive=73549
Oh, and if you’re looking for the Veemo (vimeo) link mentioned in the show, it’s here: http://vimeo.com/28115953
Get yer Maxines tonight, Olympia. Served up with a hot helpin’ of Meowtain and Basemint.

Oh, and they have a mixtape! Snag-it city.
This song is so scary we couldn’t post it for Halloween. The Maxines shred through “Our Earth Name” and leave nothing standing.
And you thought they were cute.
“Our Earth Name” is an extra track from the same session as the Drugstore EP (IPU140), the A-side of which can be blasted here. And here’s a cover song. Need it live? They’ll be blasting through the Pacific NW (yes Canada, this includes you) next weekend. Do whatever you have to do to keep it together until the big day: Drugstore drops on January 24, 2012.
Here’s some vintage video of the Maxines! Oh, the early days - this is “Drugstore” from a June 2010 at Le Voyeur. The video was shot by Chris Sutton (Hornet Leg, COCO, etc).
The Maxines have a bunch of new show dates up! Pacific NW, get ready:
Oct 11, 2011 - Portland, OR @ The Blue Monk (3341 SE Belmont St) - Smalldoggies Reading Series!
Nov 6, 2011 - Portland, OR @ The Know - w/ Hornet Leg
Nov 10, 2011 - Victoria, BC @ CanadaTalk’s Cheap Records
Nov 11, 2011 - Vancouver, BC @ CanadaThe Cobalt - w/ The Tranzmitors

Sultry punk rock? Why not, we say - we like it that way.
This song was recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, WA in May 2011. Other songs from this session will be featured on The Maxines’ upcoming Drugstore 7” EP (IPU140) on January 24, 2012. Need more medicine? Get your dose of the title track here. Watch your dosage, this stuff packs a wallop.
Curious about new K band the Maxines? Talk a walk down to the “Drugstore” and see if they let you in the door.
The Maxines Drugstore 7” EP (IPU140) will be out late 2011 on K.
Please help spread the word on this very important benefit that will be taking place at Northern in Olympia on April 15th.
All proceeds go to support 7ep (http://www.7ep.net/) and victims of the March 11th earthquake in Northern Japan.
