This wouldn't be as weird if dude didn't retire in 2010 and this truck was older than that. But he did and it isn't. #nba #osw

losers of the year

When I was a wee lad, I was into KISS in a big way. Completely inappropriate for my age, but it was the 70's, and that's just they way we rolled. My big sis would sometimes get her kicks by mocking them and getting me all riled up. I remember her citing a poll in Tiger Beat or something naming KISS the worst band in the world. I was fuming. And for a looooooooong time, she had me convinced that the lyric in "Surrender" was "threw my KISS records out" instead of "got my KISS records out". I don't know why this would have made a difference in the context of the song, but she insinuated it was a bad thing, as I was completely unaware of context. I only knew KISS records were being thrown out, and that was a travesty. I was too young and dumb to use her Leif Garrett obsession to retaliate, so I just stewed.

Anyways, I mention all this because I recently heard "Surrender" and it's awesome and they liked KISS and Leif Garrett sucks.

Love you, sis!

Ah, the importance of punctuation. Although it would be interesting to see a Russian Ballet Company perform the Cro-Mags.


hickey - art, messianism & crime (1995, last resort)

Can't believe I never posted this back in the mp3 blog heyday. Best band ever, yada yada yada. If I haven't convinced you yet, I'm never gonna.

  1. Everything I Know About Sex I Learned from KISS
  2. Waiting for the Swelling to Go Down
  3. Lost Lil' Sheep
  4. The Kittens Will Have Their Say


shoegazer - hey turkey! ep (1996 fidotrust)

One of the best punk bands you've never heard of (who I still believe put out the best 90's album you've never heard of.) Or maybe it's just me. I've tried to introduce numerous people to this band, but it never seems to resonate with them.

I'd still like to know what happened with these guys. If they formed other bands, I need to know.

  1. 1.21 Jigawatts
  2. Everlast
