Dillinger Four – Situationist Comedy (For fans of Off With Their Heads, Lawrence Arms, None More Black)

There are so many staple albums that I listen to on a regular basis, but never posted on because I always assume I already posted it back in ’07 (good year). Of course you know what they say about assuming: It makes you fucking asshole. Dillinger Four’s Situationist Comedy was my first introduction to D4 back in 2002, and back then, I thought it was solid, but nothing to get overly excited about. Something happens with Dillinger Four and their albums, one day you’ll just […]

Outer Banks 09 Baby (A Mix)

Well, after a nice long weekend in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I’m back in “so I guess it really is Fall” Philadelphia. It was incredibly depressing waking up this morning, and not having ‘going to the beach and then hit up the hot tub’ as the only things on my to-do list. On top of that, the other duder at my work quit… so I got a talking to this morning from my boss telling me that “the entire department’s success depends on […]

Wedding Sexy Time (A Mix)

Ok, so I’m going to be gone from the blog until Tuesday-ish or so, as I’m heading down to North Carolina for a good friend’s wedding of mine. ~Sigh~ They grow up so fast. I feel like it was just 2 months ago we were out playing 4 square… Oh wait, it was. Here’s to bringing the party (and hopefully not the sickness I have) down to the deep south…y’all. MP3:Atom And His Package – Dear Atom, You Do Not Want Children, Love AtomGood Clean […]

I Swear I’m Not Dead (A Mix)

So, it turns out that I got sick a-fucking-gain, hence the lack of posts here at the Housewives. To top it off, I’m going to be leaving for a wedding for a few days…. so you won’t hear anything from me on Thurs, Fri, and Mon. There is a lot of solid shit that needs to be posted soon though: Sakes Alive newest jams, Philly’s local Minor Disturbance to name another. I swear next week, I’ll have most of this stuff up. Hope you guys […]

Youth Brigade, Off WIth Their Heads, The Casualties (Live In Philly)

Last night I headed out to Philly’s North Star Bar to catch Off With Their Heads with The Casualties and Youth Brigade. Since The Casualties were playing, I was expecting the place to be packed, but there was surprisingly a really low turnout. Detournement:First up was Jersey’s Detournement. The members of this band have a solid history, coming from bands such as Bigwig, Worthless United, and Ensign just to name a few. Last time I saw them in Philly, the sound levels were all off, […]

The Steal Breaking Up (for fans of Kid Dynamite, Paint it Black, 7 Seconds)

Ugh. So melodic hardcore band The Steal announced that their last show will be with Paint it Black and Ceremony on September 18th, at The Peel in Kingston. I was lucky enough to see these guys once open for Armalite in Philly, but at the time I wasn’t familiar with any of their music. They completely stole the show that night. I was always hoping that they would come back to the US for another tour, as they became by far one of my favorite […]

Teenage Bottlerocket – They Came From The Shadows (For fans of The Ramones, Screeching Weasel, The Vandals)

(Dear Blogger and the incredibly incompetent IFPI: This is not an IFPI release. I am on the promo list for Fat Wreck, which, by the way has no association with the RIAA or the IFPI. Don’t believe me? Check the damn Fat Wreck website FAQ. IFPI, you have NO jurisdiction over the label, and have NO right what so ever to demand for it to be pulled down. In fact, I demand that the IFPI stops using their logo due to Copyright violations. See, it […]

Naked Raygun w/ Paint it Black Live In Philly

I seriously don’t think I can see Paint it Black enough. So regardless of the fact that this would be the 3rd time seeing them this year… I headed out to the Philly’s First Unitarian Church to catch them with the legendary Naked Raygun. Yes, you read that right, 80s Chicago punk band re-united and is currently on tour. Brain Handle: First band up was Pittsburg’s Brain Handle, who definitely seemed to only be about partying (or at least the lead singer). Taking shots onstage, […]

Bouncing Souls – The Good, The Bad, And The Argyle

The Bouncing Souls have certainly changed their musical style over the years, but their latest digital release for September (entitled “Badass”) made me nostalgic for their first ever studio release: The Good, The Bad, and The Argyle. A lot of fans often put this album on the back burner (or back on the shelf I guess), since they were still developing their sound at this point (evident with “Joe Lies”) but every song here is a classic (well, except the covers). Completely underrated album from […]
