It's the Swinginest!!!

Wanna hear some downright shitty Rock and or Roll (Yes, I mean that as a complement), then head on over to Kogar's Jungle Juice and give a big ole' welcome to the crap-flingin' foundling of New England's own illustrious combo The Monkey Butlers.

Low-Fi or Die!!!

"Never get caught with a dead girl or a live boy."

Less than a day after Ted kennedy's death and already Sen. Robert Byrd has suggested naming the failing healthcare reform bill after that bloated hack. I suggest naming it the Mary Jo Kopechne Memorial Healthcare bill so we can bury it at the bottom of a lake too.

Camelot my boney white ass.

(Where is) The Soul of a Man?

Courtesy of: Texas Psychedelic Rock.

Due to some diligent work on the part of music scholar Jack Ortman, Beaumont Texas historians believe they have found the final resting place of sanctified blues singer Blind Willie Johnson. Plans are to erect a fitting monument in the pauper's field in which Johnson is intered by late 2010.

Next time you are in Beaumont, stop on by and pay your respects to the man that, for all intents and purposes gave the 'Power Chord' to the world.

The Wildroote of All Evil?

Well, this is a first…

Went to a local pawn/junk shop to peruse some mammoth piles of wax. Upon depositing a stack at the counter, the cromags runnin’ the joint proceeded to tell me that each 45 is five beans, scratches, cracks and warps be damned (!?!?). Tuff pill to swaller, but I managed to pair down to some choice cuts and kicked the rest back into the garbage pile from whence they came.

Long story short- fast forward a couple o’ days to a subsequent visit and as soon as I walk in the door the inbred son they got slavin’ over his Gameboy lays it on me. The exchange went somethin’ like this:

“Excuse me sir. One of the records you bought the other day is worth twenty bucks.’

“Yeah, and…”

“Well…I only charged you five bucks for it.


“Sooooo… are you gonna pay us the other fifteen dollars (!?!?).”

Needless to say, I did not pay them the balance, though I did have some pretty choice words for that pudgy little bastard and his harridan, wall-eyed mother.

Id say that’s a bridge I smell burnin’, if it weren’t for the fact that I just cut my nose off to spite my face. Oh well; even a record hoarding misanthrope has to set a store by his pride. Anyhoo, on the plus side, I pretty much took those bastards to the cleaners on the stuff I did sneak past and in celebration I give you a twenty dollar record graciously donated to the collection for a fraction of the price by a bunch of money-grubbing ass-clowns. Behold, straight from Wall Township New Jersey, the heavy soul stilings of the Invaders, featuring their hit song (Citation needed) Wildroote!!! Don’t say I never gave you nothin’.

Spinning-Backfist Combo!

Here's two knuckle sandwiches to loosen your teeth on this otherwise inauspicious day. First up is that funky board-breaker known the world over as 'Karate' from Harrisburg PA's Emperors. This tune actually caused a local stir in Pennsytucky, even charting in 67'. For a quarter, who am I to argue?

And because I know you'll only be hungry for more chop-saki in under an hour, here's Jerry O's Karate-Boo-Ga-Loo to even out this 'Dim Mak'.

Being Young Enough to Dream & Old Enough to feel Disillusioned is a Painful Thing (Apparently)

Just getting back into the swing of things after a little vacation. First up is some crazy-ass outsider poetry for DD over & the Devil's Music. This record is right up your alley DD (see: depressing & boring). Glad that Chastity gave this disc the EP treatment, otherwise I could scarcely fill up these extraneous grooves / fullers w/ blood; sawing through my wrists w/ this eternal bummer of a platter...

Remember kids, It's "Down the Road", not "Across the Street".
