Status - 12/4

- I just made a run to a local Post Office, so all outstanding packages (mail-order, Discogs, distro) are now in the mail. I know that some things are waiting for me at my P.O. box and I will try to make a trip down there ASAP


As people have been asking about the temporarily out-of-print BLOODYMINDED CDs - "Gift Givers" and "Magnetism" - please check with Self Abuse, as Patrick seems to have copies available...

Super Eight Loop activity... in a blur...

Wednesday, December 03, 2008


Practice with the band with no name was suspended last night, so Maestro SRS and I went to see Akron/Family at AV-aerie. It was interesting to see them separated from the Angels of Light situation. A bit more pastoral, maybe, but weird as always. It was a fun show... nice to run into lots of friends, including some folks I have not seen in ages.

I am deep in Super Eight Loop territory as I deal with some glitches in the system and work my way through to the final few masters...

Boris / SRS

The ultra-busy holiday weekend continues... I accompanied Maestro Sshe Retina Stimulants to Boris last night at the Empty Bottle. It was a popular, sold out show but it left me as non-committal about that band, as ever. I remember enjoying "Absolute Ego" when it first came out in the USA but I have been iffy about them ever since. They had so much amp power onstage -- almost Jucifer-esque, visually -- so when the slow and heavy songs really kicked in, the venue seemed to skake at its foundation... Those tracks were pretty outstanding. But the faster, straight ahead (garage) rock songs were pretty generic to me. Clouds were terrible -- and I had flashbacks to a god awful Cave In show at the Fireside Bowl years ago... I definitely enjoyed Poison Arrows. They made me miss Atombombpocketknife, as they retain certain aspects of ABPK's sound... maybe mixed with a bit of Girls vs Boys (or dare I say New Wet Kojak?). All in all, a fun night out.

NG5361 and I made a Kuma's run tonight to keep the theme going... Now I am looking forward to laying the new SRS LP on the turntable...
