Miss The Postal Service?

Yeah,so do I....but there's still some stuff out there that is in line with what they were doing....

Magic Man was definitely a favorite of last year....

The year before that, I was listening to Deastro a lot. Some of their songs sound like they may even need to pay royalties to The Postal Service.

You know that before The Postal Service, Jimmy Tamborello was in Figurine, right? Good. Glad to know you're in the know...

It's kind of hard not to get excited about Off! Bringing punk back to the way it's supposed to be, simple short and powerful get's an old timer like me all in smash mode.

I can't wait to see them at the Eagle Tavern on April 21st.

Top 5 favorite hardcore bands as follows (in no particular order):

Social Distortion (A bit of a man-crush on Mike Ness)

Minor Threat

Black Flag

Die Kreuzen

Circle Jerks

Chrome Guy

Yup. That was my nickname for a while. It wasn't even self appointed either. It was coined by my friends due to my complete obsession with this experimental band from the late 70s and early eighties. I won't destroy your mind with anything to obscure and abrasive, however, if you want to further dig around, know that they did get a little demonic over time...

They were pretty science fiction....

The Stooges on acid?

Jesus Lizard covered them once...

Ripley Johnson

Both of Ripley Johnson projects are good. I haven't had a chance to see Moon Duo, but I've seen Wooden Shjips a few times now, and will probably see them again. Moon Duo is playing at the Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco on the 11th.
