Hugh Cornwell (from The Stranglers) today for @breakthruradio #portrait #musicians #roofhangs (at Serious Business Records)
traumahelikopter (lowercase intentional) have got it figured out: play short, fast, loud songs, and do it faster, louder, and more intensely than anyone else. This Dutch band from Groningen Noord is a trio, but with two guitars (no bass) and a minimal drum kit, they’re anything but traditional. Their unique setup and infinite energy give these punk anthems a fresh angle on the genre. They stopped by during CMJ to blast through some jams and chat about their music.
Featured song: “Infected”

BELL HOUSE GETS A COLOSSAL MAKEOVER
It’s always great to take on projects that display our work on a long-term scale, rather than the quick turnaround that’s usually involved with hand painted advertising. Sometimes it’s art spaces, sometimes it’s murals, and every once in a while we get to put our sign painting skills to good use for signage for local businesses.
For that reason, we were stoked to receive a call from The Bell House asking us to paint the façade of their building with a bold stylized type. The venue opened in 2010 and has since housed some incredible musical talents spanning innumerable genres. There are some dope visual elements to the space as well; art enthusiasts will notice that the brain behind the OBEY franchise, Shepard Fairey, had a hand in designing the exterior of the box office inside the venue. The Bell House can add Colossal to that list of talent now, too.
