Hello, fans of traditional punk rock. Tonight's truest 1977 timewarp moment is brought to you by a new band of French teenagers called The Pupils (pictured above). If this hadn't come with a one-sheet, I woulda figured that the emergence of this band was an explanation for the last year-plus of silence from the Anteenagers M.C. family of bands. Nobody plays like this unless they were born in the 60s, right? But incredibly, these boys were born in the 90s! So, while bands like Ice Age make the future of futurepunk look plenty promising (even if tonight's selected cut rips off The Cure's "Boys Don't Cry"), The Pupils have shown they've paid attention to the teachers--The Saints, The Kids, P.V.C.--so they are fit to preserve traditional punk rock with a shrewd less-is-more approach. If you're a fan of those teachers, get this Pupils LP stat(!) 'cos they aced the test!

In the news of the whacked & wild weirdo sounds....

Milvia Son's latest package to arrive at KDVS has everyone here talking. At first, 19-year-old college boys were gushing about the very natural boobs on the cover of the Bad Drumlin Grass 7". But to record nerds twice their age, the truly incredible thing about this record--even while it is a great fun plucky jam and crucial how-to lesson for those about to party and/or get freaky "All Night Long" (those 19-year-olds should really pay close attention to this!)--is that it's FREE(!) with any purchase of any other Milvia Son title(s), or $3ppd (i.e. "free" + $3 shipping) in the U.S.A. (Remember when 7" records used to cost $3ppd?)

If you wanna take advantage of the throw-in offer, I strongly recommend tonight's other Milvia Son selection...Can You Feel the Juices? by Jaki Jakizawa, one of the most noteworthy, unique, and über-fun Krauty jam records since the heyday of Jaki Liebezeit. Relentlessly kinetic and brilliantly paced, the A-side's analog synth acrobatics flip and flutter like a killer bop jazz solo and set moods conducive for so many situations..."baking", "frying" (at least a straight-edged "youth" such as myself might think so), headbanging, fire-dancing, something to drop unsuspectedly on the middle masses who assemble for "Dubstep Night" at college-town pizza parlors, breaking through writer's block...Hell, even sensual seduction, "cleaning the gutters", etc., etc., or yadda yadda yadda. Just have a listen at varying levels of volume and see what it inspires. Play it again and listen in headphones. Jakizawa's relevance totally fits Milvia Son's mission-oriented motto: "Dedicated to Releasing the Finest Vinyl Products for Meditation, Relaxation, and Ego Destruction".
