    2008

    Top albums

    So, my turn for reviewing the music of the past year. My last.fm all went a bit tits up when I was without the internet for a few months (losing me about 4,000 scrobbles) then it refused to update from my Ipod until I re-installed software. Anyway, it isn't much of an idea of what I've really thought of music this year, so here's my year in lists....

    1. Johnny Foreigner - Waited Up 'til It Was Light
    An easy choice for first, its easily the album I've actually listened to most, of both new releases and old. I was pretty impressed and excited after hearing the Arcs Across The City EP and although it took a couple of listens to get use to the way in which it was recorded I've totally fallen in love with it.

    2. Fuck Buttons - Street Horrrsing
    One of the Albums I got in to just before starting my dissertation (and subsequent endless hours in the library with only my ipod for company) meaning I listened to this album A LOT for a good few weeks. …

    It's late enough in the year where this is allowable so here we go.

    Top 15 LPs of 2008

    1. Chronic Seizure - Ancient Wound (Fashionable Idiots/No Way)
    As if this is a surprise to anyone. Chronic Seizure know that simply slapping four chords and some shouting over a fast drumbeat for 35 seconds doesn't make a song. Some of these songs gestated for over two years before finally getting the vinyl treatment and it was well worth the wait. This is how hardcore is supposed to sound; if you can't get into this then you're probably an idiot, you love youth crew or chugga-chugga beatdown shit. You decide which is the worst.


    2. Teenage Bottlerocket - Warning Device (Red Scare)
    Anticipation is a double edged sword. TBR had been playing a decent chunk of these songs for almost two years before the record hit the streets and by the time I actually got it, it was safe to say that I knew fully half the songs. Luckily for them the energy of their live shows carries over to the album…

    on saturday I went to the Coffins/The Endless Blockade show at ABC No Rio and it was awesome. Being that I was in NYC I also went record shopping and hit up Hospital Productions, Etherea, and Generations Records, spending entirely to much money in doing so. But whatever i got some sweet shit.

    heres what i got from Hospital Productions:

    Black Witchery/Conqueror split: this record is sick. i've never heard either band before and was pleasantly surprised by both. Black Witchery play no bullshit black metal and it totally kills. The Conqueror side is much better in my opinion, because they play noisy fast black metal that taolly remind me of Von or Revenge totally sick.

    Pain Jerk - Trashware: harsh japanoise. I really dig this style of music because it just expands your mind. since i've never taken acid before (i'm straight edge) and i feel that noise such as this is a perfect substitute. stuff like this takes me to places in my mind i've never known and i love it.

    Here we go again, it's that time of year. This will eventually be published on Air Raid but since you're oh so lucky to be looking at my myspace profile you get a sneak preview, complete with the fucked up formatting and picture sizes that I don't know how to fix.

    Full Length LPs/CDs



    1. Double Negative – The Wonderful and Frightening World of Double Negative. Trying to explain how awesome this album is in one paragraph is one of the most futile tasks I've ever attempted. Listen to it and you'll understand why. It's non-formulaic hardcore the way it's supposed to be done.



    2. The Arrivals – Marvels of Industry. This album that was the butt of many jokes around the city because of how long it took to come out but it was completely forgiven once I put the CD into my player. Marvels of Industry is chock full of gruff melodies that you won't be able to get out of your head for days



    3. punch in the face – At War With Everybody. This thing took forever to come out but it was totally worth the wait. …
