Check out this great quote from the legendary Dwight Twilley about the new Oglio single from Ron Flynt:
In the unstable universe of American Pop Rock n' Roll Sound there are still some constants. Such is the case with Austin based musical icon Ron Flynt. There's nothing wrong with his ability to craft a smart tight 2 minute 38 second diamond. Flynt proves this with the focused authority of his new Oglio single release "Tell Me What's Wrong." Just try to play it once. B/W "Hold On To Your Heart" the clever, hard driving Beatles in Motown anthem. The song begs the question, who chose the A side? Add this release to your Solar System ASAP! (Dwight Twilley)
Power popsters from Southern California/Orange County, TEEN HEROES blends sugary melodies with edgy rock. The foursome’s debut 12-track LP Audio Satellite on Glue Factory Records introduces the band’s sound which mixes “a dollop of bubble gum melodies and crunching rock-candy guitars...a secret recipe of tooth-rotting melodic rock and roll,” notes Southern Cal’s Mean Street Magazine.
The TEEN HEROES are Jesse Wilder (vocals, guitar), Pete Berberich (guitar), Alexis Haretakis (bass) and Jeremiah Farchick (drums). They’ve toured with Reel Big Fish, and performed alongside Kara’s Flowers, Nerf Herder, and Bis, among others.

Kurt Baker is a singer, songwriter and rock n' roll performer from Portland, Maine who has always gone by the famous saying "Have a Good Time All the Time". He is a founding member of the notable pop/punk outfit the Leftovers, who formed in 2002 and released many acclaimed records and toured all over North America and Europe. Kurt Baker's signature unique blend of ultra catchy Beach Boys/Beatles styled melodies under a relentless wall of high energy guitars and pounding rhythms have earned him the praise of Larry Livermore (founder of Lookout Records), Ben Weasel (Screeching Weasel) and Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup).
Kurt emerged as a solo artist with a "labor of love" solo EP, "Got It Covered", (2010 Oglio Records). Produced by Los Angeles based pop genius, Linus of Hollywood, "Got It Covered" featured Baker's take on some of his favorite Power Pop songs of the 70's and 80's and featured guest appearances from Kay Hanley (Letters To Cleo) and Adam Marcello (Katy Perry). Kurt's love of these classic songs all had one thing in common- "a key sense of melody.. and melody has always been the most important aspect of music to me. If you have a catchy hook in your song, you can do no wrong. I've always strived to write music that is catchy and fun.. that will be stuck in your head for hours after listening".
After a successful solo-tour of Europe in the fall of 2010, backed by Italy's best Power Pop band, The Radio Days, Baker focused on taking his solo act back to the USA. A brief stint of shows throughout the Midwest brought together a group of musicians featuring Mike Bryne (the Methadones), Wyatt Funderburk (Second Saturday), Geoff Useless (the Guts) & Craig Sala (Planeside), to make up the Kurt Baker Band.
Years after their breakup, the Plimsouls and Oglio Records are proud to announce the release of “One Night In America.” This live CD, originally recorded in 1981 but completely re-mastered for this release, captures the bands unique mix of progressive punk and power pop in a tight, sometimes messy, energetic performance. Featuring classic tunes such as “A Million Miles Away” and How Long Will it Take,” the band has included a few covers with the their version of the Kinks’ “Come On Now” and The Outsiders’ “Time Won’t Let Me,” here in all of their raw, live glory.
Though their fame was short-lived, the Plimsouls definitely carved out a niche in the early 80’s. The band’s Peter Case’s shrewd songwriting and straight-ahead guitar rock appealed to a throng of new wavers looking for music with a little more balls and has influenced numerous bands since. This is rock & roll in its purest form that will sure to excite fans everywhere.
