Albums that rocked April
1. Modest Mouse - Good news for people who like bad news
2. Dane and the Death Machine - Thanatron (three tracks now)
3. Half-Step - From the ashes EP
4. Muse - Showbiz
5. Modest Mouse - The moon and Antartica
6. Nirvana - In Utero
7. The Strokes - Is this it?

that's all I listened to this month...well, actually Good News for People who love bad news was literally the ONLY thing I listened to for an entire week towards the end of the month. And even now it's pretty much the only thing I listen to...If you have a negative opinion about this album, I seriously don't even want to hear about it. And if you post a comment against it I will forever banish your opinions from this journal...that's how deep and serious my love and appreciation is for that album. In fact, the title of this post should be "The best album in the entire world is Good News For People Who Love Bad News"

I'm Sick
and I don't feel like typing anything in here, but I guess I will anyway.
our From the Ashes EP is selling well, thank you everyone who's purchased one to support the cause. It will come back to you tenfold.
Okay, I'm going to go lay down and die now.

I am so diggin the weather right now
It has been so gloomy and stormy these past couple of weeks...I'm just loving it. The sky is overcast all day long, people are dressing warm, but not too warm, everything smells like rain, the streets have a tiny gloss of water over them...and I just need to listen to Sound Garden.
Grunge rock is the best music to listen to on a rainy day. It sounds strange, but sometimes I can almost hear the weather in the music. It sounds like tires rolling on wet gravel,and rain pounding on your hood...it sounds like wet clothes that stick to your body...and it sounds like mud. I love Grunge music. I love how diverse it all was. If you think of the bands that they classified as "Grunge" and then see how diverse their sounds really were:

Pearl Jam
Nirvana
Sound Garden
Mud Honey
Alice In Chains

They all have this sound of the elements...but their music is all so diverse. It's just insanity. It's like they all managed to capture the exact same world using completly different musical genre's.
I'm rambling.
Anyway, enjoy the weather...it's going to get real hot real soon.

Kilby Court and From the Ashes
Last nights show was seriously the bomb diggity omb shit. We were happy to see all of our good ol friends out at Kilby Court. The weather was doom and gloom as it has been for the past weeks. But the energy in the venue was kickin. A big thank you to not only our friends and fans, but also to the kick ass bands that played with us: DeadLip and Watashi-Wa (sorry Just Jenni...but you just didn't cut it). We also released our From the Ashes EP, which I've had a few complaints that the lyrics weren't posted on the web. Eff. I'm still trying to decide if I want to even post the lyrics up or not.
I'm also pretty stoked because we seem to be getting a lot more recognition lately. Thanks to Live and Local with Brandie, myspace, and of course the bomb Super Joy site! So yeah. Things are good!
Thanks again to everyone who took the time out to come and see us. Your support is ever appreciated and never forgotten.

Boy for sale
Recording of From the Ashes is coming along quite nicely I suppose. This album has had so much fucking trouble being made, I just don't get it. It's like everything in the world seemed to be working against it. But we're doing it. The only catch is that we need all the help we can get. Heh, we're basically recording it all in installments. Just look at it like it's Kill Bill or something, like you can buy this first little album we're putting out, knowing full well that soon the rest of it will be out.
Eff. we're going to be turning into little money making machines here. We need all the dough we can get baby. So, I guess we're going to start turning tricks.

If you don't stop being a bad puppy, we're going to have to put you down
We're playing a show at Kilby Court on the 2oth, anyone who doesn't go is going to be plauged. We're talking lepracy.
I want to get out of Salt Lake City and stop working at The Olive Garden. I'm sick of smelling Italian food everyday. I'm sick of the desert. I want a bear as a pet...no one would fuck with the guy who has a bear as a pet.
