Totally Michael Live In Philly 6/29/09

Last night, I picked up a few unsuspecting friends, and headed out to West Philly’s Danger Danger Gallery to see housewives favorite Totally Michael. There were only two bands on the bill, so I was pretty stoked to see the new king of pop play a longer set than usual… Although that didn’t really happen (lots of issues), the few songs he did play were awesome. When I got there at 9, I was afraid I missed the bands since the show started at 8. […]

I Got 99 Problems But Moving Ain’t One (A Mix!)

Pretty sure my boxes are packed with this. Keeping up with the tradition I unknowingly started for myself back in ’05… I apparently move out of my apartment every year. All damn weekend, it’s been a party of packing, lifting heavy crap, and complaining that my girlfriend has too much stuff. Although when I pack, it gets kind of dangerous. I don’t believe in boxes, and throw everything (and I mean everything) into plastic bags: including fragile kitchen glasses. If they break? Fuck em, drinking […]

Holy Crapballs, Michael Jackson was Human? (A Mix!)

Michael Jackson Chilling With The Reagans… A world without Michael Jackson is a better world indeed, just ask the world’s little boys who collectively breathed a sigh of relief last night. No more sleepovers! No more babies hanging from windows! But in all seriousness, I don’t think he’s actually dead. I’ve seen the Thriller music video, he’ll be back… Making splits with Tu-Pac. MP3:The Unseen – Beat ItMe First And The Gimme Gimmes – BenMe First And The Gimme Gimmes – I’ll Be There More […]

Swallowing Sh*t – Anthology (For fans of Some Girls, Ceremony, Spazz)

Straight up Winnipeg grind-core! Featuring Todd from Propagandhi and Cory from Malefaction, Swallowing Shit has a bit of an interesting history. Apparently, as they were making a name for themselves and having their popularity increase in the Winnipeg punk scene, some of the city’s more conservative residents learned about their song “Pro-Abortion, Anti-Christ”. Trying to figure out how to stop Swallowing Shit from satanically brainwashing their children, the Christians would picket outside of their shows, and finally got city council to resurrect an outdated and […]

Teen Idles – Minor Disturbance (For fans of Minor Threat, State of Alert, Youth Brigade)

Before there was a Minor Threat, there was a Minor Disturbance (EP). Formed back in 1978 when Ian Mackaye (bass) met Jeff Nelson (vocals) (a classmate of his who was setting off a pipe bomb). This group of teenagers were one of the most influential bands in shaping 1980s hardcore. Ok, so the EP was a precursor to some major bands, what about the actual music? Musically, the band was harsh, and similar to Minor Threat songs such as “Bottled Violence” and “Straight Edge”. Minor […]

Blink 182 – They Came To Conquer…Uranus (For fans of Green Day, NOFX, Screeching Weasel)

Lately, there’s been a lot of hubbub, hooplah, and other words you haven’t heard since people were still doing the Charleston about Blink 182. While I don’t care too much (or at all really…) about their reunion or any album after “Dude Ranch”, all the news did successfully make me go back and to listen to their older stuff that I own. One of my favorite, yet little known releases by Blink was a 3 song EP called “They Came To Conquer…Uranus”. The EP was […]

Holy Crap Iran (A Mix!)

Photo By: shahram sharif Wow, what’s been going on in Iran is completely insane since the elections. If you just so happen to be living under a rock for the past week or so here’s a summary: People voted, election seems rigged, people are fucking pissed and are taking to the streets. All I have to say, is that I’m proud of our Iranian brothers and sisters for standing up against injustice in their country, even when innocent people are getting shot and killed around […]

Paint it Black – Amnesia (New EP!)

Paint it Black has gotten it backwards: most hardcore bands release a handful of EPs before releasing one or two full lengths and calling it a day. With three full albums already under their belt, it’s kind of odd to see Paint it Black jump to the 7-inch format. But hey, if it’s going to get me more Paint it Black in the shortest amount of time, I’m not complaining. Put short, “Amnesia” fucking dominates. With 5 songs in about 10 minutes (with one song […]

Ceremony – Still Nothing Moves You (For fans of Some Girls, Converge, Blacklisted)

As I mentioned on Monday, I saw Ceremony for the first time on Friday night, was completely impressed, although I had my doubts how their ferocious grindcore would translate on album. After listening to 2008 release “Still Nothing Moves You”, I can say “pretty fucking well” with confidence. I can’t listen to many grind influenced albums all the way through without getting bored (greeeat, you’re heavy and like noise, you’re different. I get the fucking point) but I can listen to Ceremony’s grind/hardcore over and […]

Go! Go! Go Me, It’s Your Birfday (A Mix!)

Soooo… tomorrow, I turn the big two four (and it seriously feels like yesterday last time I put a birthday mix up for myself.) I figure I post today since I’m presumably busy tomorrow (cutting work, going to the beach suckas…. if it doesn’t rain.) It’s been an interesting year, and I remember when I was turning 23 I thought I was getting old (I was so young and naive back then), but now… I don’t feel old at all. MP3: Groovie Ghoulies – Happy […]
