FREE SHOW @ JUMBOS!

[ Here is the long print out description of the Event. (NOT IN MY OWN WORDS) Check it out, It's a good read. Also, GREG BAISE BAYBY! 


Poor Steve got bricked to death. The British call it Boxing Day because they taught us to re-gift. Either you're burning off a hangover or politely hoping you might stumble into one.

This is a FREE show at a place you should have a passing knowledge of. We believe in promptness, so at 9:40 the night will begin with TURN TO CRIME. We like to have variety in these things; so the sheer fact we have TURN TO CRIME back for another go should prove to your brain-pan that maybe (just maybe) TURN TO CRIME has a bit of what you need. Seriously, there might be burnt offerings after it's over.

KOMMIE KILPATRICK exists. What maybe started as a hardcore joke amongst smart friends has become one of those oiled, bang-on concerns that smoke in these federated swamps. They single-handedly took the garage-rock, Ima gonna cover my grand pa pas records types out to the wood shed and...well, if I was to describe the complete control the KOMMIE KILPATRICK dickheads have on "The Scene" you'd think me mad and you incontinent.

OH Wow. When talking about PARQUET COURTS i'd like to invoke Jamie Cherry's clarion call (If you see it as a moan from stomach pain). OWWWWW. Did you know that we've got NYC bands (PARQUET COURTS) wanting to come to our burnt and pleasant land? It's mostly because we said it was an awesome place. And we, as a bunch of chubbed-out burn-outs will give them welcome. This band is great. Go on, try and fight it. There's a swell reason why there playing a free show at Jumbo's, why not come out and find out? Here's a hint: They blow most Detroit bands off the map. 

PROTOMARTYR is a Make-A-Wish that went too far. Who are we to tell the kid it's terminal? Here's a hint: please let the guitar player know his moment on the earth was worth it.

PLUS PLUS PLUS:

We've done this bit for two years and both them years had GREG BAISE SPOKEN WORD. Why stop now? GREG BAISE brings a lot to the table. The table is full of cans of food to donate to HURRICANE SANDUSKY.


Could we have DJs? Maybe. I don't trust you freeloaders with one of those INTERNET JUKEBOXES. 




Here is the selling point: FREE FREE FREE FREE  ]

Thursday!






Bill Bondsmen [80's hardcore revival]:
"You could say that the Detroit-based BILL BONDSMEN play raw, angry hardcore punk and leave it at that. But that’s lazy. And since I’m getting paid by the word, I need to pad this out a bit (wink, wink). I will say that they’ve got the trigger-finger animosity of other compatriots from the Midwest—the guitar scuzz certainly sounds like some of the buzzsaw Cleveland acts like 9 Shocks Terror or the Inmates. Add to that the pure rage of MassHoles (a term of endearment for people from Ma
ssachusetts) Out Cold, with whom they shared a split 7" with last year. It’s not a musical carbon copy, but more a similar attitude and feel that the BONDSMEN have to other Midwest thrashers all the while adding their own vicious stamp to it." -Magic Stick

Suicide By Cop [Ann Arbor]:
"Born of a long line of Michigan punk bands, Suicide By Cop is forging ahead, eschewing the past and making way for new sounds and new ideas, but keeping the same intensity and aggression. With one full-length vinyl release under their belts, Suicide By Cop is writing, recording, earning and saving in an endeavor to be as prolific on vinyl as any corporate band spreading their filthy digital seeds today." -Magic Stick

Inflatable Best Friend-DMT Bike Ride

Inflatable Best Friend
are:
Austin McQuater-Bass guitar
Ian Howell -precussion
Tanner Boerman-guitar/vocals



Inflatable Best Friend or IBF to some are releasing their debut album on January 18th 2013. I had the privilege of listening to it early to write this review. If you have been reading and keeping up with my blog here you'll remember way back in 2011 when I interviewed them. Their sound off the bat in the demos we're rough tracks but these guys put a great album together that really sums up how they're supposed to sound live. As most first bands have a hard time getting a good concrete studio quality demo out this album is crystal clear. It does have a bit of lo-fidelity feel to it. I would not mind having a copy of this on tape if that puts things in perspective. 

The album is titled-DMT Bike Ride. The album artwork looks hand drawn. It's a little guy riding a bike while on a drug trip. The first track immediately took me to early 90s era punk/almost Smashing Pumpkins/Sonic Youth-esque. The guys recorded it and all of the other tracks at in the basement of Village Castle. The tracks were mixed/mastered at WIDR Studios with the help of Golden Joe & Eli Kroes. As a fan of lofi/grunge/and fuzzed out punk...this album won't disappoint you. (For fans of shoegaze I think you'll like this too) It will take you back to a time where music videos were about driving around really fast and spilling your coffee in your lap and doing donuts in parking lots. 

The album itself was written pretty unconventionally. It has a ton of riffing and funky drum fills. Joe & Eli did a really well job showcasing that uniqueness Inflatable Best Friend has to offer. The guys in IBF also did a good job of not putting you to sleep when you listen to it. From start to finish it's like you're opening a book and can't put it down until you've read the end of it. DMT Bike ride has 11 tracks and will be released in Vinyl Record on Inflatable's self-label "Obvious Records." Only 250 copies will be available. My favorite of all the tracks on this was: Swiss Cheese Brain. 


Duende/Carjack.
