Sparkling Water Beverage…

Haven’t made an animated gif in a while…why not one of Al Cisneros of Om, from a live set they did at Amoeba in San Francisco back in the early days of the band, a little over 13 years ago…
My old acquaintance, who in modern times has turned into a pal…Check out his interview he graciously did for me or anything about the immortal Shower Of Smegma, a band I was fortunate enough to have seen way back when by way of a mutual pal, Roy Kazuyoshi Miyake (if you know this man, please send him my way, he is one of the few that may remember me when I was first called Mustard and had a huge early impact on me musically…a solid human being and a true Mustard Relic…frying together at 14 and watching Song Remains The Same, solidified that). Ed did a stellar job in a tribute to one of my favorite artists with this one..
My son is quite the angler, better at fishing than I ever was…he caught this 4+ pounder at a small pond in Greenville North Carolina.. Love this young man to the moon and back a few times over!
Had these guys fucking doing their grand thing live in the last post and damn they put on a show, but here’s the vid Björn turned me onto that made me an instant fan…

Was chatting with another virtual Swedish pal, Peter, most recently of the never boring band Isotope Soap and long time fellow blogger of the immortal Killed By Death Records site (look it up). We were talking politics, I’m often curious what folks around the globe think of Americans and our shenanigans. Anyway we were chatting to Viagra Boys and he mentioned “Benjamin who plays guitar in Viagra Boys is also in Isotope Soap. Benke who plays bass in Viagra Boys, Benjamin and I where in a hardcore band together called Neu-Ronz. Small world you know?” Always game for his work and in general Swedish bands (I have decided to claim my ten acres of ground for Sweden, much in the same way Columbus claimed the Americas for the king or queen or whoever the fuck of Spain…)…music played by seasoned vets reminding us that even in the 2000s hardcore punk can still be fresh and new

While on a bandcamp trip, may as well give you some brand spanking new stuff from some of my pals up Humboldt way, reminding us that there’s something in the air up there that makes bands like this so special. Hats of to you gentlemen with this new EP…
