AFS v. 186 ~ At Last, My Grail!

It took about 12 years of looking, but by the grace of the internet, I finally have my very own copy of the one and only LP by the Philadelphia band known as Blue (not these weaksucks pictured here! (sorry, there's damn near nothing on the internet about this band!)). I quickly collected all of their 7"es--highlighted by the incredible Moe Ho Speed EP on ERL Records--but years and years of searching "B" sections at every used record store I visited was unlucky everytime. Well, there were the two times I tried to order it offa GEMM.com; one time, the vendor took my money, but a record never materialized. Another time, I thought I found a copy, but the vendor said that the title was no longer in stock. I've never even looked at that site in the eight years since! But thanks to Justin--honcho at the excellent Collectorscum.com site--I finally have it...All because of a little boohooin' about how I never found a copy of the thing!

Was it worth the wait? Well, the LP definitely sounds like a "grunge"-era artifact. Very much a product of the time. It's not nearly as original as their mindbending B-side of Moe Ho Speed or as consistently impactful as their Bovine or Datapanik sides, but it definitely has a few very awesome moments, and I'm very happy to have it. This "Hair Grow Long" song's pretty loosey-goosey before the guitars gnarl up to near-Liquorball proportions.

Shall I test my luck now? Any of you got the Mercury 4°F LP? Been kickin' myself since I passed up my chance to buy it about 10 years ago. Also, how about that full-length CD by Designer?

AFS v. 185 ~ Magic Flowers Wilt the Weakhearted!

"Bob Dylan's 42nd Annual Report"--a sprawling sidelong jam on the back of Psychedelic Horseshit's Magic Flowers Dubbed cassette--drew more angry and confused phonecalls than any song I've ever played on the radio (or at least since The Most Unicorn a few weeks back). So, I guess this is a warning. You don't hafta like everything on these podcasts. Use the FFWD button if you need to!

There is some semblance of a song in between the long keyboard intro and the outro that codas the queasiest guitar riff into eternity. Me, myself...I do have the patience for this kinda stuff, and maybe I enjoy listening to it because I feel like I know a little bit about the humor of the Horseshit boys from a few hang-out seshes and catching them live several times, sometimes at their glorious best and their self-admitted worst (which was still a hoot!). But no matter how this B-side grabs you, the A-side will most likely send your hearts aflutter if you loved Magic Flowers Droned. This thing was limited to 50, so good luck!

Tonight's featured background music was from a demo CDR that Sacto's rennaissance man Matt K. Shrugg was passing around a little bit last year. His name as a solo act is just now getting known outside of Sacramento (mostly to the TermBros) thanks to Tic Tac Totally's announcement of pre-order availability of his upcoming 7". But some of us locals have known about him for a long time. And it's not like we were keeping him a secret. HE was keeping himself a secret!

I was surprised to hear how far out his solo stuff gets. My impression of him had remained unchanged since the first time I saw him. He was maybe 15-16 years old, shakin' maraccas like a crazy man during a Troublemakers show at Old Ironsides. I was surprised someone so young got let into the bar, but I had no idea that his folks owned the place. This was my first 21+ show, I think. My first taste of garagepunk in its regular habitat...I was transfixed! Then I heard later he was in a bad called The Shruggs, and they were all nerdy about vintage Vox equipment, dressing up for shows, and cultivating shaggy hair. I thought it was maybe still a little ridiculous to base your entire set of musical ideals on the Back from the Grave series, but live, these bands ripped so hard, I could never hate on it.

Then, when Matt began the Zodiac Killers band practice commute, I thought...well, for a redundant band, they sure got a punkass monster of a drummer. I thought that was a big stylistic stretch for him. Then came Th'Losin' Streaks (a fantastic live band that gets taken for granted by far too many undie-pukers around here), and it made sense as the next logical progression for him. I figured he might be listening to some jazz drummers because of the impression I was getting from some of his more unexpected rolls and fills in the Streaks.

He stepped up front to sing and play guitar for The Black Dahlias who issued a solid single for Plastic Idol Records before breaking up over some kinda drama. A little too tentative the coupla times I saw 'em. Around this time, he also lent his bashin' drumskills to Sunshine Smile, who where something like Black Flag meets Blue Cheer, but with sweet fem vox by a woman who must've learned how to sing by warbling along to Misfits tapes as a girl.

Then came The Pizzas, and I was like, cool...really dig the songs! Some of them had begun as Black Dahlias songs, but as heard on the superb 7" from Daggerman early this year, they oozed a lot more snot and drove a lot harder than before. Just after the first Pizzas show, Matt slipped me that CDR which he wrote "Weird Shit" on...first 6-7 songs sounded like the Pizzas, but the next dozen or so were kinda all over the map. Some good psychedelic songs that still retained some catchiness and his signature drumming style, yet some of the songs were pretty free and wild and noisy, yet still very good. By then, he had been showing up unexpectedly to some weird shows, asking me what I'd been listening to, and Scott Soriano had also reported he'd been snooping around Time Tested Books asking for cues about what jazz to try next, and it finally started making sense.

And ever since Matt K. published his Swingin' Creeper zine as a youth, he has been a talented graphic artist, too. His cover for this upcoming 7" exemplifies that for sure. Bottom line...dude's awesome at whatever he tries.

AFS v. 184 ~ Punk Trippin' Triple Threat in Studio!

Tonight's special in-studio guests include Le Face (pictured (featuring Michelle from Mika Miko on bass)) and the Friendly Neighbors, two young ragers from Los Angeles. And between their ferocious live sets, we get treated to a tape-delayed broadcast of Meth Teeth, who recorded in the KDVS studios on Saturday after their DAM House set. Le Face and Friendly Neighbors picked most of the music in the last hour of the set and joined me on air for some chattin'. Keep an eye on a mystery band called Hamburger Pony...That's the word!

If all of this gets you in the mood to see some live music, be warned...Eat Skull is coming down the West Coast this week! I saw 'em twice in Portland a couple weeks ago, and they were brilliant both times. It's an emotional roller coaster to go from the sweetness of the record to the bristling anger Rob delivers on the same songs live. But no matter how hard the vibe and the spontaneity swerve off the tracks, the rhythm section keeps it charging ahead. It was really amazing to see what kinda alliance of fans this band is building in Portland, perhaps the city with the most segregated genre ghettos. I saw 4-5 rows of fist-pumping wasters in an amoebic mosh ahead of another 3-4 rows of girls of the indie-pop fashion circa 1993. Nerdy glasses, barettes matching cardigans....And they were singing along to the anthemic parts(!!!) of the better-known songs like "Punk Trips" (and really, has there been a sweeter break than Rod's guitar part in that song?).

They're taking Sacto's surfadelic swirlers of janglepop sweetness, The Ganglians, along for the ride up and down California. It might seem like an odd pairing at first, but these bands fell in love at first sight when Eat Skull played at the Ganglians' homebase, the Funcastle, 2309 L Street in Sacramento. A split 7" of these two is getting close. Both bands will blow up the Funcastle again on Wednesday, July 9th with MOM and My Whole Hand Was Wet. Figure on 8:00 for starters. Highest recommendation! The rest of you will get your chance...

AFS v. 183 ~ Sexy Prison bring 2011 in 2008!


The band that brought you 2007 in 2004 had you pumped like Italians Who Just Saw Rocky on their debut LP. Now Sexy Prison is still three years ahead of the curve, portending the party to end all parties in “2011”, the opus-like finalé on their new LP due out July 4th at their Ivy League summer vacation reunion engagement at the DAM House in Davis, CA (est. 1989), with Meth Teeth and Mutators. No sophomore slump here. I still stand by the comparison of “kinda like a more sample-rich Cheveu if Etienne traded blues-punk guitar strut for Peter Hook-like bass guitar.” Touches of early Severed Heads and Timbaland swirl into a storm surge of electro/weirdpunk. These new songs are stronger than the first batch, and still hilarity-inducing but not as gimmick-reliant overall, and best yet, the sound is more crystalline and forceful. This record was made to be an end-times party-ripper or dancefloor oppressor, or a perfect demo piece for a boss car stereo. Far be it from me to keep the beans from spillin’....You hafta see this picture-disc to believe it. Too ridic to quit! Or maybe they just wanna show Adam Stonehouse the punkest way to surf envisioned yet. (Okay, I guess I shoulda said “spoiler alert” after all.) Either way, you may just need to chase Filthflarnfilth with a vedge-out-sesh to The HospitalsHairdryer Peace to get your pulse back to regular.

Robert's out here from Providence for some actual factual geophysics booyar at UC-Davis, and "Dawson" is taking a brief break from flood management modeling and Mayyors vokills to play some Sexy Prison shows. Their new record will be available to first comers at these Sexy Prison shows...

Hey, Meghan...remember this reverse freakin' action you got? Wasn't that some 2007 in 2004? Seriously, though...It really is amazing that a band of a civil engineer and Ivy League geophysicist must set the bar for partyhardiness in Davis. Is this not a real college town, kids? Well, at the last Mayyors show, Woodhouse's headstock wrecked some window glass due to wasted thrashers in the front row. So, maybe the kids are catching up to 2008 just in time to board the P'Zone express to 2011. Come all ye TermBo Trippers and Beardo Flippers!
