Pool Parties! Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu cover Joy Division

July 12, 2010

First Pool Party of the summer featuring Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu playing Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures” in its entirety:

The best part of this performance was “I Remember Nothing,” which was accentuated by wine glasses smashing into a garbage can. Also dare I say Greg Saunier (Deerhoof’s drummer) far outperformed Stephen Morris (Joy Division’s drummer), despite being 30 years apart. Great kickoff to summer.

Also on the agenda for this year: Lightning Bolt, Jeff the Brotherhood, Future Islands, Cap’n Jazz, No Age, !!!, Murder City Devils, and a lot more. Hopefully next week I’ll be able to walk there.

Death By Audio Records has a lot going on lately – the Seawhores LP has finally arrived, and every copy was printed by hand:

This album an eclectic blend of lo-fi electronic prog and heavy hardcore drumming. Hard to describe, awesome to listen to.

Hot Sauce from Hell

July 1, 2010

Straight from the depths of hell’s gnarliest kitchen, from such a twisted mind, it could only be conceived by Misfits’ guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, this hot sauce will shred your tastebuds and leave your ears ringing with the sounds of guitar solos.

When Danzig played in NYC, a bottle of this mysteriously showed up at DBA. I must say, the man knows his hot sauce. Unless you plan to see a Misfits reunion or check out Danzig solo, you can order Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein’s MADE IN HELL hot sauce for $8.
