  • Egzegeza europejskiego puklerza

    25 Jul 2015, 08:59 by YesterdaysRain

    Nic nie poradzę na to,
    Że Europa to nasz drugi tato
    Wojowniku Poprawności,
    Na widok targanej przez Ciebie Europy świętości,
    Dostaje palpitacji i ogromnych mdłości
    Ośmieszasz Europę mówiąc w jej imieniu,
    Winien jesteś zjeść tuzin twardych kamieniów,
    Ty stawiasz znak równości
    Pomiędzy Unią i Europą,
    Nie widząc w tym żadnych nieścisłości,
    Emanujesz ino głupotą

    Zaczęli niepozornie - od wolnego handlu
    By gwałtem wcielać do Eurolandu
    Suwerena niesłusznie opluwają -
    Swoją koncepcję państwa narzucają
    Biją po głowie Pałą Poprawności
    Wolną miłością gruchoczą kości
    Odrosty marksizmu są już w gotowości
    Oni wyrzekli się Przeszłości
    Oni wyrzekli się Przeszłości
    Gender to nauka - trąbią w niebogłosy
    Uczciwym ludziom dęba stają włosy

  • Kerrang! Video Premiere - The Kut

    15 May 2015, 00:46 by criminalrecords

    Kerrang! Magazine premiere the brand new music video by The Kut today (Friday 15th May)!  The track, I Don't Need Therapy is taken from the recent 'Rock Paper Scissors EP' and was directed by Mike Gripz. Watch it from 4pm at http://kerrang.com

    Classic Rock Magazine
    Tracks of the Week
    "Bad Man marks the precise point in the Venn diagram where L7 meets I Wanna Be Your Dog meets Courtney Love, which is equal parts terrifying and a cause for long and rowdy celebration. Punk's not dead, pass it on."

    Kerrang! Magazine 
    "Despite the loud Courtney love references they're more than just Hole II. Mario has an Against Me! Strut to the intro, while DMA is a pounding gem"

    Q Magazine
    Top 5 Tracks To Listen to This Week
    "There's a slice of angst-offloading gutter rock that's a kissing cousin of Hole, but The Kut's scuzz-covered family tree also stretches further back to the garage rampages of The Stooges."

    Photography by Joe Brady.

    Inspired by bands like Deftones, L7, Hole, Incubus, Tool, Placebo, Nirvana, Faith No More and others, The Kut are a rock trio born from the alternative scene. Having been voted into in the winning spots for MTV UK Brand New Unsigned 2014 Poll, their ‘Make Up’ EP was produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / My Vitriol / Page & Plant / Def Leppard), featuring 3 brand new tracks plus 2 previous releases ‘DMA’ and ‘Closure’. The 2014 record saw immense support from Scuzz TV, BBC Introducing, Kerrang! Planet Rock, Kerrang! Radio, AXS, MTV-U, Putpat TV, Vevo and 16 cable channels across the USA.

    Their forthcoming 'Rock Paper Scissors' EP is a quicker than expected follow up to the 'Make Up' EP, and includes horror pop halloween single 'I Want You Maniac'. Alekhine's Gun is second single from the 'Rock Paper Scissors' EP, out 13th April. The Kut release their latest single 'I Don't Need Therapy' on Monday 6th April, which "is about rejecting the ill advice that people try to ram down your throat in the guise of helping you out." The track mixes riot grrrl grunge with contageous riffage and is soon to be accompanied by forthcoming video, produced by Mike Gripz (Boy Better Know / Frisco).

    The debut single from the EP 'I Want You Maniac' was added to the playlists of MTV-U and AXS TV. These US channels joined major UK support from Scuzz TV, Planet Rock, BBC Introducing and Jim Gellatly's New Music Showcase among others. The EP has also been played out in the clubs including Club NME and Medication.

  • 150,000+ plays and some musings

    1 Mar 2015, 22:36 by garynotrashcoug

    The other night, quietly and with very little fanfare I passed 150,000 plays on Last.fm. Pretty much one year from the day that I passed my 100,000 milestone. It's amazing to me to think that I listened to 50,000 tracks in a year, but that's only half the story. That's not including stuff I heard on the radio, live performances, friends playing music when visiting their houses, watching something on youtube which I didn't scrobble, things I heard then deleted from my scrobble history because I hated them so much.... It's amazing how much music fills your life without really trying, much less when you're like me and have music going almost around the clock.

    I love Last.fm and as I've said in the past, it's sort of like "my facebook". Other people let facebook occupy much of their time and it becomes a big part of their lives. Last.fm is like that for me and the very ephemeral nature of the internet makes me worry about what I'll do if it ever disappears. I'll live, certainly and there are far worse things which can go wrong in life, but I suppose it is a dear hobby of mine and a great resource for discovering new music and connecting with other music fans. It also satisfies my oddly exhibitionist nature when it comes to my music collection and listening habits. I can't really explain it, much less understand it but I've always been this way. Music has been a big part of my life since I was very young and I suppose that, combined with whatever twisted miasma lies deep in my psyche causes it to manifest that way.

    I also mull over the fate of Last.fm since it seems like so many longstanding third party developers and website are disappearing. Tools I used to enjoy and often employee in these journal entries such as McKillaboy's badges and lastlabs. These are additonal tools which utilize Last.fm's API and it seems like they just aren't interested or are jumping ship for other reasons. Sure, it costs money to re-register a domain every year, maintain a server, etc, but the fact that they aren't even trying anymore leads me to believe that they may have succumbed to their consensus that Last.fm is dying. There still are a lot of people using this site and a lot of people supporting it (despite all the other users who do nothing but complain). This post in particular hints that Last.fm's developers have "big things" in store on the horizon. Fingers crossed, ever hopeful. I am grateful for the few third party developers who have stuck around, like Last.fm Tools (see below).

    Thank you for reading all of that (if you actually did) and now that I got that off my chest, it's time for some stats! You love stats as much as I do right?

    What I've (mostly) been listening to for the past 12 months:

    2. Ween
    3. Beck
    4. David Byrne
    5. UB40
    6. Talking Heads
    7. Spiritualized
    8. 新居昭乃 (Akino Arai)

    10. Herbie Hancock

    Top tracks for the past 12 months:
    1. The ByrdsYou Ain't Going Nowhere

    4. Chelsea WolfeWe Hit a Wall
    5. RideDreams Burn Down

    7. The Stone RosesMade of Stone
    8. I Break HorsesDenial
    9. The Stone RosesI Wanna Be Adored
    10. Talking HeadsWarning Sign

    garynotrashcoug's top albums (year) 1. Joy Division - Heart and Soul (235)
    2. Killing Joke - Singles Collection 1979 - 2012 (132)
    3. Ride - Waves (102)
    4. Oingo Boingo - Best O' Boingo (94)
    5. Spacemen 3 - Recurring (90)
    6. Doves - Lost Souls (90)
    7. The Raveonettes - Pretty in Black (90)
    8. Cymande - Cymande (85)
    9. Spiritualized - Pure Phase (84)
    10. Blue Man Group - Audio (84)


    I suppose this type of journal entry is more for my own records, to go back and look at a snapshot from a previous year and see what my listening tastes were like at the time, more than anything else. Thanks for reading and to group leaders still present for letting me spam your journal feed and hey.....at least there's one McKillaboy badge which still works....
  • Albums of the Week (Neeshcast segment for 2015)

    22 Feb 2015, 13:37 by neesh

    Each week I pick a different album, either from 1995 or 2005, for myself and listeners of Neeshcast to lend an ear to. It could be a first listen, or it could be the first in quite some time. Some truly groundbreaking albums came out 10 and 20 years ago. It’s nice to push them back into focus, and reflect on their influence.



    The Album of the Week from Wednesday, February 18, 2015 to Wednesday, February 25, 2015 (week 7) is the third dredg album, Catch Without Arms.

    I've put together a handy Spotify playlist including all of our Albums of the Week to date, with the exception of Cage’s Hell’s Winter, which is not in Spotify’s library.


    I encourage you to lend an ear to the Albums of the Week and share your thoughts! A new album is announced every Wednesday night during the Neeshcast between 7-11pm Central on Radio Xenu.
