The Old Firm

Recommended Posts

Lars Frederiksen (Rancid, Lars Frederiksen & The Bastards) has started a new band called The Old Firm with Casey Watson (Never Healed, Look Back & Laugh) and Paul Rivas (Never Healed) in San Francisco, CA.

When will the first show be? Where? When and who will release their first album? ??? ??? ??? ???

Oh yeah and for all the Bay Area LSTers checkout the monthly Powerhouse Productions:

Black N Blue Takeover San Francisco First Thursday of every month at 540 Club

Black N Blue Takeover East Bay Third Thursday of every month at The Missouri Lounge

He didn't even mention the new band...all he talked about was mini-Lars. Mini-scott, mini-Steve and mini-Lars will totally start a band but it will probably be like backstreet boys as an eff you to their pops.

Loch and Jake...let Steve know when their first show is...man night.

Fresh from the camera phone on this fine Friday night pictures of The Old Firm Casuals in the studio recording their debut 7" inch right now! First photo is drummer Paul Rivas and the second one is singer/guitarist Lars Frederiksen (pictures by Casey Watson). Are you ready for the album and shows?

Much much less of a budget than recording a rancid album. It's like a small local band going to record a demo but up some notches I would imagine. Plus it's an Oi band and seven inch so I would think more raw like a Templars, Sham 69, Last Resort or earlier Cocksparer album. Lars has a good ear and is a great producer who can catch the minor things needed to record a "genre" specific album. One of the reasons why when he produces an album under any budget they tend to nail it for that specific populations fans.
