Hard Nips appears on 14’21”
Major Japanese TV commercial ” Kew- Pie mayonnaise”
"Hard Nips On Japanese TV
Hard Nips have just had their song ‘Sunshine Overload’ (an exclusive version of a track off their latest Mixpak EP), featured on a Japanese ad! Apparently the main guy in the commercial is Japan’s ‘Tom Cruise’, and in case you don’t speak Japanese, it’s an advert for mayonnaise. Props to the people who made the ad for a) making the classiest ad for mayonnaise you’ll probably ever see and b) for knowing which band to turn to when it’s time to sell mayonnaise. Hard Nips for the win!”
MIXPAK Records :
"Opening band Hard Nips last time I saw Cheeseburger, at Bell House in mid-March. With this band, it’s all about how much fun they’re having onstage, and how unless you’re a total schmuck you have to love watching them perform. Tonight they brought their super-excited brand of 2-chord Joan Jett-style rawk to my neighborhood (literally, a half mile from my doorstep!). This was Hard Nips’ record release show and, predictably, I got so worked up at the show that I walked out without remembering to buy their album. That sucks, because I don’t think their shit is available on eMusic, iTunes, Amie Street, or anywhere. Crap-ola.”
For the grand finale Brooklyn All-Asian garage punk band Hard Nips finished off a night of spectacular live music. If you’re a fan of Peelander-Z and Shonen Knife, these ladies are up tour alley. They gained quite the following from their memorable performance at AS220’s Foo Fest this past summer, they followed it up by selling out Dusk a month later and tonight was no different. “State Of The Art”, “Amazing Guns”, “No Action”, “Alligator”, “Sun Stroke”, “Good Reason” and “Picture” caused a rush of pandemonium among the audience and had everyone going insane. After the initial set people were chanting for an encore and Hard Nips delivered with “Surreal Surround”, leaving one anonymous concert goer exclaiming “This is the greatest band in the history of the universe!” Hard Nips have a few albums out under the names I Shit You Not and Amazing Guns that are a must for any music fanatic to give a listen. What more can I say? Another great night of rock & roll at one of the coolest places to check out a show, log on to Local121.com for everything you need to know about where you need to go.”
