[insert fun title here]

and i’m back.

first off, i posted a new page – THE GRAVEYARD – which is my tribute to amazing bands that didn’t make it as far as they should’ve. despite the demise of these bands though, i’ve made it part of my mission in life to continue exposing people to their muzik. along with that, don’t forget to check out the BURIED TREASURE section for bands that are still around and should make sure to check out before they disappear.

second of all – i recently got a hold of Sprung Monkey’s very first cd Situation Life (you can pick it up here) which is amazing because i’ve never seen it available anywhere before. anywho, upon ordering it i was slightly worried. i figured it would be good my $11 just to check out this piece of Sprung Monkey history, but i wasn’t sure if it would be that amazing cause as much as i really like some tracks on Swirl (their second album), i was never a fan of it the way i was their other two albums.

however – Situation Life proved me really fucking wrong in my worries because this cd is amazing and by far one of the most amazing albums i’ve gotten my hands onto recently. it’s way heavier and far more experimental than their later stuff and i fucking love it. there’s a lot of really heavy guitar riffs that almost go metal in tone at times and some crazy funky bass riffs that bear resemblance to Les Claypool’s funkiness. for Incubus fans, it’s like the difference between Fungus Amongus and the rest of their discography. for non-Incubus fans, it’s just goddamn amazing. the cd is very early 90’s crazy experimental trying to redefine muzik in all sorts of ways and in my opinion if you don’t check it you’re life might just never be complete.

with that said – don’t forget V is for Viagra, the Puscifer (Maynard James Keenan) remix album comes out tuesday along with 7 inches for DoZo and Queen B so pick that shit up.

oh, and one last thing. in Isis land all of the craziness over the Holy Tears single final got sorted it out and it’s been out for a few weeks now (on cd anyway, the vinyl is still a mystery to me). i finally found a copy in my local Street Light and Isis has finally started selling it in the official store here. if you like Isis i would definitely pick it up. the artwork is really cool, the Melvins/Lustmord remix of Not in Rivers, But in Drops is the definition of how heavy muzik like this should be remixed, and the live version of Holy Tears with Justin Chancellor is amazing. just listen to how well they fill up that huge amphitheater they were in opening for Tool with their sound. it’s mind boggling. it also contains a video for Holy Tears which i must confess, i still haven’t watched by i will.

anyway, i’m out – more updates to come today or tomorrow.

  1. If you like Puscifer you might be interested in the album I just finished this month. It is political and subversive post-industrial rock with an interesting mix of classical instruments, guitars, electronic beats, and a small dash of aussie hip-hop. You can download the whole 11 track album at no cost at our website.

    I don’t mean to spam but I am trying to get the word out to those who may be interested.

  2. Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Muliebrity!
