Vum has thrown up the Bat-signal and is asking for help pressing their new album on vinyl. They have started an Indie-go-go page to raise funds. Here's the link if you would like to contribute to bringing "Psychotropic Jukebox" to my turntable:
True Widow may not be coming to Pittsburgh but they will be in Morgantown, WV on September 18th at 123 Pleasant St. It's a $7.00 cover and the show is at 10pm. Down the highway I will go. Here's the video they posted for S:H:S off of Circumambulation:
The Beastie Boys' "Awesome, I Fucking Shot That" played at the theater up the street from me a few days ago. It's sad that that was the closest I will ever come to seeing that band live. The DVD is readily available for your viewing pleasure. My only suggestion when watching is to turn the volume up to house crumbling levels.
Sesame Street posted a rather humorous segment to the youtubes. In anticipation of the new season of Sons of Anarchy starting on September 10th, here's the Sons of Poetry:
Upon first listen to the reissue of Real Enemy's "Life With The Enemy," I was surprised to hear a song I was rather familiar with. We have a Try To Live sandwich for this episode. We start with Real Enemy's version and close with Submachine's cover of it from "Fresh Out Of Give-A-Fucks."
I stopped into Mind Cure a few days ago and came across a few incredible finds in the used bin. I am now the proud owner of a promo copy of Empire's "Expensive Sounds" album. It's scratchy but plays all the way through. The store also had the limited pressing of Iceage's first album "New Brigade." There were only 500 pressed and it's got bonus tracks.
I also picked up the Birthday Party Reissues and the Mind Cure subscription series single for July. The band for July is called Carousel and they've got a Thin Lizzy vibe to them. Evidence of that being the Thin Lizzy cover on the b-side.
If you are a fan of the 1966 Batman television series starring Adam West, DC Comics has started a new digital comic book based on the show. After a few digital issues stack up, DC prints them as one paper issue for those of us that prefer to turn pages instead of swipe screens. Issue #1 is on stands now.
DC is doing the same with Batman Beyond, the futuristic take on a new Batman and an old Bruce Wayne. The writer starting the series is Kyle Higgins so it's going to be good.
That's all for now.
Until next time.
Thanks for listening.
Rock over London. Rock on Chicago.
