In an effort to promote Scene Unity, I present the following track from the upcoming Desert Rats With Baseball Bats, Vol. III compilation by a Local band called Anti-Vision. Yeah, I never heard of them either. Bunch of kids in high school. They are one of the many up and coming young bands here in Vegas that are so cool and underground that when they play house parties, they don't put the address on the flyers, because that would just mean that the uncool people could show up and ruin their elitist fun. Some bands just enjoy playing to other bands and nobody else. Whatever. If you kids weren't stupid enough to fall for the Police posing as East Side Punx looking for information on Facebook, then maybe you wouldn't have to worry about them showing up to your little house parties, now would you, but there I go making sense again, so I'll just stop. Nobody wants to listen to the Old Guy pontificate, right? Right! Anyways, I post this song because Cody from The People's Whiskey, the Wölfmann in the title of the song, spoke highly of them, and basically gave me a guilt trip about posting it on the website, and yeah, I know it's posted on that other "Punk" website, but like I said earlier, Scene Unity, so here it is. Listen to one of the more promising young acts of the Local Music Scene. Me? I'm gonna go weep for the future... ;-)
I really have nothing to say as of late. Just enjoying Life, playing drums, looking at my new car sitting in the driveway, doing nothing, doing everything, watching Maury give paternity test results, and whatever. Punk Rock and the Music Scene in general just aren't that much of a priority as of late - but it's not from a lack of trying though. Bands send me stuff all the time. I check out all these new Local bands and they just suck. Not from lack of effort, but more from a lack of talent! LOL Whatever happened to practice? What happened to wanting to sound good? What happened to the art of writing a good song? Ugh. I try to go to Local gigs, check out things and whatnot, and there's always one of the bands that don't deserve to be supported playing, bands that don't deserve to be supported because they're a bunch of drugged up, lying, thieving, sexual deviant pieces of shit, or even worse, LOL, when there's some acoustic Beardcore boring Punks In Vegas mediocrity going on at a gig, and for me that makes sticking around painful, because I'm not a Hippy, so I just leave. Going out to gigs is supposed to be fun, and when it's not, what's the point? Drama? Tension? Bad vibes? Shitty music? Fuck that. I got way batter things to do... waaaay better. Seriously.
Vegascendents are back and practicing, we got a gig sometime this month somewhere - don't ask me where, because I'm just the drummer and they don't tell me shit, and S.F.T. and The Civilians have been practicing hard for their upcoming gigs in the next few weeks, S.F.T. playing Fri. @ the Dive with D.I., and then The Civilians are playing with The Generators on Sat. @ the Beauty Bar, a gig The Generators asked us to play, but according to the line up, The Civilians are opening up for the much cooler, signed Local bands. Typical Vegas. It's all about who you know, and who's ass you're trying to kiss. Oh well, doesn't really matter, because The Civilians and every other band playing that night are gonna rock the fuck out of the place, and it's a FREE gig, so you really have no reason to not be there on Sat. night. Plus, if you get bored, you can always head inside the Beauty Bar and listen to Boz Boorer, guitarist for Morrissey and The Polecats, spin some classic vinyl tracks on the steel wheels. Should be a fun night. See ya there! :-)
Everything's updated - sort of. Latest new additions to the website include Pictures of The Dirty Panties and The People's Whiskey, both playing at the Dive a few weeks back, and you can click here to see the pics of The Dirty Panties, and you can click here to check out the pics of The People's Whiskey. I also posted a review of Filmage, the amazing documentary about the Descendents / ALL, and you can click here to read that, and I also posted a review of a Hank Wood And The Hammerheads release that Zack Attack turned in, and you can click here to read that. Did I mention that I reviewed the latest release from the Reverend Horton Heat? Well I did, and you can click here to read that. And I'm pretty sure I didn't mention the review I gave the latest Brutal Resistance CD, sorry guys, but you can click here to read that. And speaking of Brutal Resistance, here's a video they just posted a few days ago for a song called Time For The Truth, which is the opening song off their We're Still Here release, the one I just reviewed. The video was filmed at East Side Joe's, which is back again and doing gigs regularly. Gonna be fun to see how it ends up crashing and burning this time...
