Hey kids - big show Friday night!!!
Friday 1/27 - DC SNIPERS Record Release Party!
DC SNIPERS - new CD/LP "Missile Sunset" on Dead Beat Records!!!
TAMPOFFS - Boston punk rocknroll, first NYC show in way too long!!!
CRIMSON SWEET - NYC glam rock, now with two guitar assault!
SOME ACTION - First show since May 2005!!! New songs, new drummer!!!
VCR - Jersey puhnkz
At Union Pool - 484 Union Avenue, Brooklyn...check out the newly renovated music room!
The band will have CDs/LPs for sale at the show...and if you're lucky, maybe they still have a few rare-collector-dude test pressing LPs with super-disturbing original covers by Mike Sniper...
Or you can order online from any number of reputable outlets!!!
As you may know this is my favorite local band and the new release is one of my favorite recent records (along w/ "Let It Bloom")...I could go on about the music (and you all know I have before!), but instead I found this recent description online from Parasol Mail Order:
"They bring something different to the table with each of the 11 tracks on this album; & its hard to do that & actually end up with a record that's good! They prove its not impossible. Taking cues from other musical pioneers like the Screamers, Gang of Four, Urinals & the Electric Eels; they forge into their own fragmented, audience-less sector & begin to build a following based on songs that are undeniably catchy without sticking to a musical script"
(I would maybe just throw in Flipper and Crime...always micro-managing! haha...)
Also, I here rumors that Tom Scharpling on WFMU ("The Best Show on WFMU") has already named this the record of 2006!!!
And check out the link below from a live radio set this past Saturday on Terre T's Cherry Blossom Clinic:
