When Dave Ramsey decided to start a local indie record label 10 years ago, he helped spawn the cult of Flathead. The beloved Tempe rig-rock trio released its debut seven-inch ("Alcohaulin'," still a crowd favorite at the band's shows) on Ramsey's Truxton Records, and later cemented its stature as the punk and rockabilly crowd's Americana band of choice with two full-lengths, Flathead and Play the Good One. Those are classic albums now, but they're out of print, so Ramsey's rereleasing them on one disc, under the title New Old Stock -- the perfect way to celebrate a decade of decadence. Look to the Sonic Thrills' ballsy garage trash EP as well as Grave Danger's self-titled album (released in conjunction with Rustic Records) and last year's murderously good Trashmen-meet-Misfits rampage, Death City, for further evidence of the hell-raisin' Truxton agenda.
