The Pillowfights! (the song Get Outta Here is seriously incredible)

Smokejumper! (Chris Crusher, good dude, owes us a new bench)

Some pics from it (it was a semi-formal by the way):

You missed out.

Come to this shit on Monday! It’s going to be wild.

Lemuria (NY), The Tattle Tales (also NY), The Credentials (MA), and Billy Raygun (Mars)
Also, come to this tomorrow:

I don’t miiiiiiind…

WHADDUP?

I’ll try to update this more, but I always say that and it never happens.  Maybe if I say, “I won’t update this ever” it’ll get updated more.

Here are some things!

This is a picture I did for a flyer for a show at our humble abode:

BOY COMMANDER REX VS. THE SILENT SAMURAI MIME BROS.

Here is the whole flyer (its in French because I think I’m funny):

It already happened, and it was fun.

More shows @ SH5: April 30th – Halfway to Halloween, May 1st – Black Wine/What Happened?/Young Leaves/1TBA, May 7th – The Measure [SA]/More TBA, June 7th – Lemuria, The Tattle Tales, The Credentials, Billy Raygun, June 20th – The Pillowfights, Smokejumper, Billy Raygun, Georgian.

Expect flyers for all of these.

I’m listening to the Buzzcocks all day today because I’m psyched to go see them at the Paradise in Boston May 17th.  I can’t believe they still play, and according to Bovio and other accounts, they still rip.  Here is some stuff by them!

Another Music in a Different Kitchen (1978)

Love Bites (1978)

Listen, enjoy.  They’re one of my favorite bands ever.  If you have never heard them, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??

Lastly, here is my band’s demo.  Fast, angry hardcore from New Hampshire.  Hope you like it!

Instead I’m just crazy…

Hey its been a while, huh?  This month has been stupid.  I’ve been completely uncreative and lazy, and on top of that my scanner broke, my house flooded, and I’ve been at work for most of the month.  OH WELL.

Here is a drawing I did for the upcoming show at SH5.  Nightbirds/Billy Raygun/Georgian/Adult Braces.  Deep Sleep dropped off, which sucks a lot.  We might be getting another band to replace them, but we’re not sure yet.  The flyer will be finished when the line up is complete.

March 26th, be there or be a dummy.

I have more drawings to scan in, but I’m not gonna do that today.  You’ll see them soon.

I’d like to talk a little about this comic, Mesmo Delivery, that I picked up on a blind buy.  It’s written and drawn by Rafael Grampa and it is FANTASTIC.  Buy it now.  Its a really quick read, but you can get lost for hours in the beautiful art.  Grampa’s line work is absolutely stunning.  The story is also really unique and full of twists.  I don’t want to post too much about it because its going to be more rewarding if you don’t know a lot about it.  I’ll just tell you it follows 2 dudes who are bringing a mysterious freight cargo somewhere.  Here is a taste of the wonderfullness:

Its got gore, humor, fantastic design and composition, and just absolutely lovely illustrations.  I can’t emphasize enough on how important it is for you to get this.  WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

I’ve purchased a shitload of records over the past week too, and I’d like to talk about them too.  Here is my recent record haul.

Not the metal band by the same name.  This is a fucking killer rock and roll record.  Originally recorded in ’74, its just recently seeing the light of day with this reissue.  If you like Bad Brains, MC5, The Stooges, and the like you’re gonna love this.  Unfortunately its only like 7 songs, but they rip.  There is a really cool story as to how this ended up getting reissued too.

Crime in Stereo’s latest effort.  Despite the awful album art, this is actually a pretty neat record.  They are all over the place on this one.  There are parts that sound like old CIS, Brand New, and even Nirvana.  The music has this space-y and dreamlike quality of it that was beginning to become apparent in “Is Dead.”  Despite how weird and electronic the music sounds, I guess it was all recorded without the help of synths or keyboards or anything like that.  I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit.

This is a great record. I had seen the video for “Lust for Life” by them and loved that song, so I picked this up.   Its like a fuzzy Beach Boys with Elvis Costello singing.  Its so unbelievably catchy and fun, while remaining a serious work and full of anger and sadness.  Most of the songs are about girls, losing them and whatnot.  I suggest checking them out if you like poppy, lo-fi, surf, or garage music.

Another awesome lo-fi rock and roll record.  If you’ve never heard these guys, change that immediately.  This sounds like its crawled its way up from the 60’s and dragged its belly across punk in the process.  They even cover “Operation” by The Circle Jerks.  HELL YES.

This is one of my favorite records of all time.  No Idea Records just reissued this and my other favorite, “Jersey’s Best Dancers” so needless to say I’m psyched.  I don’t have much to say about this.  Great melodic hardcore before it got hackneyed and overdone.  This band influenced every band today that has poppy hardcore songs but did it soooooo much better.  “The Gym is Neutral Territory” is one of my favorite tunes.

Cloak/Dagger play rock and roll infused old school hardcore.  Balls to the wall, fast, and full of riffs.  Awesome record.

One of the best bands doing music today.  I’ve already gushed a lot about them on here, so I’ll spare you.  This is the “License 2 Chill” 7 inch and its more awesome Ramones worship with catchy songs and fun lyrics.

Social Circkle’s new 7″.  It’s unfortunately only 2 songs and ones a Showcase Showdown cover, but its a great cover and the original song rips.   If you hate cops, and love garage-y hardcore then you’ll LOVE this.

Wes Eisold’s band before Cold Cave and after Some Girls.  It’s weird techno-dancey almost hardcore.  He screams a lot in it, and the songs are catchy.  It’s not a bad record, but it’s nothing I see myself listening to that often.

Later gator.

When I Look at You…

My Blood Valentine is great.  Dreamy, poppy, fuzzy rock.  Listen to this song while you read my post.

Here are a bunch of pictures I took with my brand new Holga (thanks Sarah).  The first batch is from my first roll and its just me messing around with double exposures and seeing how the camera works.  The scans are super shitty, so bear with me.

These next ones are from the birthday show at SH5.  I only used the color flash.  Zander took the ones that I’m in.

Georgian:

KYOTY:

Condensed Flesh:

Blockhead:

Billy Raygun:

Adult Braces:

I’m happy with the way they turned out.  I wanted them to be dirty and gritty and lo-fi and they certainly are.  Expect more in the future.

Flyer stars everyone’s favorite reptilian hero, Boy Commander Rex.

Check out this album by THE JETTY BOYS.  They are playing Slaughterhouse 5 on January 8th with The Roman Line and some others.  They sound like good Green Day.  It’s pretty good.  There will be a flyer when the show gets figured out.  PATIENCE.
