Greetings Dear Listener,
That was quite the rebuttal the fine senator from Florida gave the other night. Way to lay an egg and then stomp on it, Senator. And what moron set up the shoot without the water within reach? Ha ho.
Enough about our crumbling empire, let's get into the music.
Great news on the Rival Schools front.
Many moons ago, Walter and company went into a few studios to work on what was going to be their second album. For whatever reason the sessions were not completed. Eventually, the tracks landed on the internets in varying sound quality.
The band has now seen fit to give the songs a proper mastering and release. The title is Found and it will be released on April 9th. The vinyl comes in a few different colors.
Here's the link to the Rival Schools website to put in your pre-order:
Brendan Canty of Fugazi is in a new band called Deathfix. Their record comes out on February 26th on Dischord. They're heading out on tour in March. If they're coming to your town, I suggest you get there. The pre-order comes with an immediate download. I haven't been able to stop listening to it since it landed on my hard drive.
The J Robbins fronted band Burning Airlines has pressed their two records on vinyl. Dischord is handling the distribution on this as well. The prices on the Burning Airlines are a bit higher for Dischord releases but all proceeds are going to benefit J's son Callum. Callum suffers from Spinal Muscular Atrophy and needs all the help he can get.
In other J Robbins news, Office Of Future Plans will be releasing a split single with the French band Daria. No release date has been posted yet.
Here's the link to the Dischord site:
The first At The Drive-in record, Acrobatic Tenement, will be reissued on March 5th. Hopefully the mastering was well done.
Forgetters are out and about on tour. They'll be in Pittsburgh on March 30th. If they're playing here, they must be playing everywhere.
One final word on recent news: Steven Seagal has offered his services to help train armed guards in our schools. Am I the only one that is suddenly looking to the horizon for horsemen bringing the Apocalypse? We are fucked.
Until next time.
Thanks for listening.
Rock over London, Rock on Chicago.
