another of the best of 08. dueling ying yang guitars, frantic drumming, and a four foot tall girl making dolphin noises instead of singing. end result is like if melt banana was a surf-rock band that performed terry riley and steve reich pieces. no fucking joke. these guys didn't win best live band in baltimore in the baltimore city paper two years running for nothing. baltimore's city slogan is "the greatest city in america". that makes ponytail the best live band in the greatest city in america. download this to see why.



this is what you get when an unlistenable noise band collaborates with an unlistenable free jazz saxophonist. essential.

wolf eyes win the award for most consistently accurate album titles



discharge covers from two bands that were definitely influenced by discharge: japan's disclose and upstate new york's no fucker.

Dance to the punk fuck


Dude so I just saw some crazy new siltbreeze band that sounds like old Guided By Voices farting on a snare drum with the broad from Times New Viking blowing lou barlow with a bunch of SM57s recording all of this sweet action! Some old dude was talking about the frantix and wouldn't stop, who the fuck are these dudes? Looked them up on allmusic, sounds like early DOA or some shit to me, not quite sure about this.  I went to pick up some more shitgaze records and asked the record clerk. He had some original 7" of the frantix and told me this 7" alone would slay what's in your pile of records (and dude trust me, I got some good shit,  like that last Aaron Dillaway record, you know the one where he uses delay pedals to manipulate his barking dog, FUCKING KILLER). I didn't get the 7", but the chain smoking pretentious fuck played it for me, it wasn't bad, I'll download it I guess. We're still on for that Thruston Moore solo show? I heard he's doing all la monte young covers.  I got my mini disc recorder ready! The ex gf hasn't responded to my emails. She's just gotta understand that a sun ra arkestra show is more important then some lame ass anniversary. I'll keep myspace msging her, shes bound to write back. I'm out.

Journey Through the Awesome

Last year I gave a friend of mine like 10 Neil Young bootlegs, when I was making em for him, I was even more floored just how awesome Neil Young is. Copying these for him showed me the scope of just how much shit this dude actually records. Seeing Mr. Young live last year underscored my belief that his records are better than 95% of what are in my collection. Dude still killed it and played heavier then that new black metal crap on southern lord. If you don't like Neil Young (or think he's just okay, or overrated etc.) you probably think that new stooges record was awesome and I hope some drunk dude barfs on your new JFA shirt, asshole.
