    I don't think they have been a band for a very long time, but you can download some of their songs here and here I recommend the We Ate The Apple EP.

    We also played that FBF show with a band from Pennsylvania (I think) called Fall River who was a really tuff band and also had probably the hottest girl vocalist I have ever seen, and then the noises that came out of her mouth...yikes.

    oooh, i just got a new seven inch that is really good. its kinda sad how that sticks out compared to a few years back when a weekly trip to the record store would yield multiple great new albums but whatever. the AGENTS OF ABHORRENCE/EXTORTION split 7" is brutal as hell australian grind that will satisfy anyone who likes this sentence. also:

    CRISPUS ATTUCKS-yo peho! 7"
    FUCKED UP-dance of death 7"
    GENGHIS TRON-board up the house cd
    HIS HERO IS GONE-fifteen counts of arson
    MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE-the black parade

    @joe.distort - Genghis Tron's Board Up the House is probably in my top ten of the year; staggeringly good.

    caestles - we have built a new god

    be your own pet - get awkward

    I've been listening to the new Kanye West album a lot. 808's & Heartbreak. It's all autotuned singing, and frankly, I'm totally on board. If you can listen to it loud, it's all the better. The beats are very simple, but sonically rich. Also in the ol' rotation lately:
    Tobacco - Fucked Up Friends (to piggyback off of wooden ghosts' Black Moth listing - Tobacco is his solo record)
    Muslims (apparently now called "The Soft Pack") - Parasites 7"
    Why? - Alopecia
    ...and live Hot Snakes footage on YouTube.

    Best of 2008 list is a-comin'...

    I'm always amused how small the hardcore community is. I ran into a guy in Wichita, KS on this last tour I did and it turns out that his old hardcore band used to play with all of my friends' old hardcore bands a few years ago. I had all these strange connections with this guy I had never met. Amazing

    Also, Why? is fucking amazing.

    I am currently in love with The Sailors, specifically this wonderful track:
    I Punch You

    What a soul-healing chorus: "I punch you with the fist of my cock/I punch your ass with the fist of my cock."

    I'm listening to the ringing in my ears.

    I'm still not sick of Muse and Arcade Fire.

    But a friend of mine (meaning I met him one time like 3 years ago and we hung out for a night after his show) K'Naan Warsaame from Somalia (via Canada) is releasing a new hip hop album in about a month, and he's given away a few tracks on his site that I can't stop listening to. This has also caused me to go back and dig out his first album from 2005, The Dusty Foot Philosopher. He's incredibly great, especially if you know things about African politics, which I'm kind of into.

    Poptastic, The Teen-Pop-Noise Virus

    Chris Fitzpatrick recorded an album of teen-pop, then he and Thomas Dimuzio sliced, diced and generally warped the shit out of it Negativland style.
    Hard to say whether my CD player is malfunctioning, or if that's what they created.

    Needless to say, I like it.
