When I get to sub a show for another DJ, I often enjoy taking that as an opportunity to play music that reflects the regular DJ's shared interests with mine, and often this means I get to play something that you normally wouldn't hear on "Art for Spastics." It's rare that I can fit in punk rock of the melodic, foot-tap'n and finger-snap'n variety with some of the freakier noisy weirdo shit. And such is the case with the new Marked Men album, which threatens to take the band across the pop-punk barrier and into pop-rock territory. Many a fan of the pre-Marked Men band, the Reds, have complained that the Marked Men are a pissweak disgrace of snot-garage masters gone emo rock, and this third Marked Men album would upset them even more, no doubt! But it's a fine album. Not as many speedy cuts with deep grooves like the last one, "On the Inside," but perhaps it's a grower. In any event, here's my early fave track!

Did I skip Guzzard? Hey, whenever I get the itch for snappy and melodic and yet impactful, I dig out the second of the three Guzzard albums. "Quick, Fast in a Hurry" has my favorite ultra-tight pistol shot of a snare sound, and their drummer Pete Beeman was as nifty as he was powerful. Todd "Hometown Atrocities" Urick and I saw them live in 1995 at the Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco. They were touring with Unsane, who I had been ambivalent about since their great early singles. A buncha baldheads in Biohazard shirts showed up for Unsane, and as Guzzard played, they laid back smirking in disapproval over what must've sounded to them like the band All meets Nirvana. I'm not sure why this band was considered such a trifle, but they seem like perhaps the least remembered AmRep band these days. But I remember them very often and feel the need to drum along to the album on my car steering wheel.

How I miss the leather-wrapped steering wheel in my 1992 Toyota Cressida...it had the best simulated snare sound...like a thwap with a sorta springy-ness to it. And I could do rolls and fills across the middle of the steering wheel which sounded almost like real toms. Pre-airbag days! Why did that 3.0-liter inline 6 cyl. (7MGE) engine hafta blow???

Doesn't the riff of this Angry Angles song sound familiar? I can't place the band exactly...maybe I need to listen to everything by the Adverts again because that's my first hunch. I can only place it as the UK in the year 1978. This song is beautiful! We get two more from brand-new singles on the Plastic Idol label run by KDVS colleague Mario "the Analyst." He was on the air again as a guest sub recently, and I could tell he was catching the radio disease again. Klinger and I are thinking about launching a petition drive to demand him to return to the airwaves.

Since the last time we heard the Carbonas, I found about something about their prehistory which really surprised me. Members of this band were in the sorta emo-tinged hardcore band Quadiliacha in the mid- to late-90's. Considering how authentic late-70's the Carbonas are...this seems even more miraculous! I mean, seriously, I thought Quadiliacha were pretty iffy.

more notes updated later...
