Hey don't know if you knew this but our buddies at AntAcidAudio just released the new ALTAMONT CD "The Monkey's Uncle". ALTAMONT is of course Dale Crover's (Melvins) other band. Check it out!
So we were thinking. We've done hip hop, rock, country, comedy, electronic, pop etc etc etc but what the roster was really lacking was a Russian spy/surf/horror themed instrumental rock band. Guess what, we found them! MESSER CHUPS are the pride of Eastern Europe and we are proud to introduce them to you via their most recent full length "Crazy Price". This is what you would call a fun record. Cramps fans, Davie Allan fans, sci fi fans, come one come all it is party time!!!! Come out on a limb with us, check this one out!
Coming soon the Ennio Morricone compilation to end all, a full length of noise from East West Blast Test (Dave Witte & Chris Dodge). Down the road look for releases from Einar Orn (Sugarcubes), Melvins (a new "Houdini"?), other goodies including....... Peeping Tom! It is looking like mid 2006 for the long awaited Patton project.
You don't normally get pretty music from us do you? Today you do. We are proud to present to you one of the greatest talents to come out of Iceland, Mugison. Mugison can be described as a singer/songwriter but too often, that tag means boring folkie. Mugi ain't that. Listen to his most recent full length, "MUGIMAMA! IS THIS MONKEY MUSIC?" This record was called record of the year in Iceland last year. Check out the many moods. This is a late night, long drive, headphone record. Go to www.mugison.com and learn more about this artist that has a HUGE future ahead of him. We will be announcing a handful of US tour dates soon. Get on the bandwagon. Fans of Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Bjork, Elliot Smith, intelligent modern pop sign up now!
Hey there Kielty crazies! Check out the calendar section. Jello Biafra and the Melvins are taking their show on the road for a handful of US dates. The Melvins will also be doing a set of their own preceding the Jello/Melvins set. Have you wanted to hear some Dead Kennedy classics the way they were meant to sound? Don't buy into the crap calling themselves Dead Kennedys now. A legendary pairing fo sure!
Kielty here again! How's things?
