Punk Rock Heart Transplant
I was standing in line at the best Roberto's in town (next to what used to be the Aristocrat near Charleston / Rancho) after an early morning jaunt with the Amoroso clan to the Broad Acres Swap Meet, which I have never been to before. Yeah, I know, shut up. While I'm standing there pondering what to grub on, Brian from TheCore walks in, says Hello to me, and after a bit of chit chat he mentions to me that his band was just featured on some compilation thing, and gave me a copy of it.I thanked him for it, put it in my back pocket, forgot about it until doing my laundry weeks later, burned it to my hard drive and songs from it keeps popping up on shuffle, and it sounds pretty good. A bunch of bands from California, a token few from Canada, and a handful from Las Vegas comprise all of the music on here, and it all kind of goes in a Pennywise / Strung Out / Lagwagon / Death By Stereo kind of direction. What ever happened to diversity on compilations? LOL All kidding aside, there are some really good tunes on here, stuff from bands like The Regime, No Bueno, Guilty By Association, Bastard Suns, Eken Is Dead, Battle Born, and, my favorite song from TheCore, which I never knew the title of before, Scene Kid Sacrilege (Return Of The Shirt). Gawd, such a great song. Besides being a cool collection of some good songs, this compilation is also a great idea in getting bands music out to the people for free. All the bands involved paid for the pressing and recording of the songs, and because of that, the CD is absolutely free for the taking. Not bad. For more information go to www.punkrockhearttransplant.com or www.facebook.com/punkrockhearttransplant for more info on the project, and maybe to find out how your band could be on the next one. It's a good idea, and there's some pretty good stuff on here.
End of Review. I'll make a new page for it later. Everything's updated. New Pictures of Barrington Levy and Haleamano @ the Bunkhouse added to the website, and the Show Review of the Guilty By Association 10th Anniversary gig @ Yayo Taco is now Alive and Kicking. It's about time too, as that one was a bitch to put together, for some reason. Click here to read that if you're so inclined. It's hard to get things done on here as of late, but there's good reason for that. ;-) My beloved Sharks are in the Playoffs, and we're gonna kill the L.A. Queens in 4 straight! hahahaha Life is Good.
