AFS v. 221 ~ You're Soaking in It!

If you were one of those ballyhooers who pooh-poohed the last Crash Normal album--My First Stop--for being too straightforward of a Jon Spencer-ish garagey bluespunk album and lacking in all the cool artpunk angles and junk-techno accoutrements of Heavy Listening and earlier singles, then you'll probably be happy to hear this new Finger Shower 10" a-comin' on Rijapov soon. The Spencer touch has been lifted in favor of a Wallers slant; the Country Teasers are covered on this, and echoed throughout. Have a taste of "Chrome Cramps" this week...you might envision the possible result if Wallers had borrowed "Doktor Avalanche" offa Sisters of Mercy to make a headphone soundtrack for crushing the countryside in an armored tank. As Crash Normal has been a twin guitar attack in the past, I don't know if there's a bass guitar anywhere here, but it's no matter 'cos there's some brawny low-end presence that syncs up brilliantly with the rhythmic bludgeon. It's certainly a lot more dour and mean than anything you've heard from Crash Normal before, but I think that old fans will be very pleased. Another fun thing about this 10" is how it makes you wonder....What the hell is a finger shower??? Is that something like the scene in "Election" when Matthew Broderick's character takes a genital shower before returning home to his wife after an extramarital tryst?

Operation: Restore Maximum Freedom VII was a gas, huh? That was certainly the best and most successful ORMF fest ever. We didn't keep counta the head, but we woulda lost count anyway, I figure. Probably 450, even in the sweltering heat...WOW! The highlights for me were the slow-burning sax-assisted jamrockers by Eternal Tapestry, the mayhem of the Mayyors (resulting in ORMF's first ever stagedive attempt), and the sublimity of Thee Oh Sees. Now, this might make you really jealous if you missed it, but something happened that was unprecedented in live performance, I think. You know that Oh Sees song "Two Drummers Disappear"? Well, two drummers appeared during this show, and one of them was named Chris Woodhouse, and he added some extra wallop during a couple extended jams which were just superb in every way. Maybe we'll get #8 going for October....who knows?

And on that triumphant note, if you're in the Sacto/Davis area, be ready for more rulingness from Freeform KDVS Presents...

So I was being totally retarded the other night and going through random websites and suddenly my computer was infected with some kind of virus thing with spyware and whatever. I don't know what's wrong with my computer, so I try to go to system restore, but system restore is infected and I can't restore anything :c. I just got a pop up telling me that spyware is infected or whatever. What's that mean and how can I fix it :c... I'm like freaking out :'c.
