Seeing as I'm addicted to merch from bands I like, I made damn sure I got my copy. It was the last one I saw sitting at the Pike Street location on Monday. The song's fucking great morning music to boot! A new Fresh album, I suspect, is soon to come. You can see those dudes (and even me and my dudes! Sound the conflict of interest airhorn!) with White China Gold and dj100Proof at Neumos March 9th.
Some time ago Stones Throw actually sent me the first postcard 45 I ever laid eyes on, for a group I've been jamming tuff ever since Grant first put me onto 'em: Vex Ruffin. Instead of hiphop beats crudely made by guitar players, it's crude n' dirty garage punk made by hiphop beatmaker(s). What the fuck isn't to like? I don't know when they're coming to Seattle but it better fucking happen.
The next one I need is SPURM's:
—which contains the first two tracks of SPURM , the alleged last hurrah of the GGNZLA crew stalwarts. 's got a super crunchy, greasy-ass carnie flow that I just can't deny, and includes a creepy crawly Pink Floyd cover. Go see them February 10th at Black Lodge, with Unnatural Helpers, Uzi Rash (Bay Area-based members of Trashies), and Wimps! Sounds like a real, slam-bang, honest-to-goodness, three-fisted humdinger.
