THE ONLY MAN YOU EVER WANTED WAS ONE YOU KNEW YOU WOULDN'T HOLD VERY LONG



yesterday i had to spend the day in a car driving to and from hartford CT. in a lot of snow. all the while watching people get into accidents all over the place. and with the exception of a delivery van, all of them were suv's. yeah, i wasn't surprised either.

cops in athens, ohio called in the bomb squad, shut down a bunch of buildings, and destroyed a bicycle cause it had a band sticker from This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb on it. . . c'mon, you KNEW that was going to happen someday. just be glad the owner of the bike was eventually released and not shipped off to Guantanamo. article here.
*UPDATE: i spoke too soon. the student is being charged with "inducing panic" and has to appear in court. maybe he'll end up going to jail for supporting a punk band. that would almost make sense nowadays.

tonight at Northsixth, Wolf Eyes and Bloody Panda with Whitehouse and Pig Destroyer. i know i like the first two bands anyway.

and saturday is the last Rated X party at Scenic for a while. if you like your hipsters naked and drunk, it's not to be missed.

MP3:

everytime a track from this band comes on, i am impressed. that's pretty unusual. i saw Xiu Xiu (pronounced "Shoo Shoo") years ago at the old Right Bank and remember being intrigued by their use of vibrators in a glass jar as an instrument. there's a good description of them on Wikipedia. . . if you have further curiosity about this experimental-percussive-indie act.

• Xiu Xiu - Bog People
