Converge (music Monday)

June 28, 2010

Petitioning the Empty Sky- Converge: The Saddest Day: (1996) This album was a great hardcore album to begin with. After it was reissued in 2005, it really shined.

Mr. Bungle (music Monday)

June 21, 2010

California- Mr. Bungle: Air Conditioned Nightmare: (1999) California was Mr. Bungles last and best album. Its spastic but I find every strange and abrupt cut to be enjoyable. This song specifically is like some type of slightly erie 1960’s surfing song for people with A.D.D.

Television Personalities (music monday)

June 14, 2010

…And Don’t The Kids Just Love It- Television Personalities: The Angry Silence:(1981) This is an amazing little punk song with some doo-wop in it. This album really satisfies my cravings for both old punk and that type of rock music that was just becoming predominant through out the early 1960s.

Music Mondays: Wire

June 7, 2010

Pink Flag- Wire: 12XU: (1977) It sounds like every Ramones song ever made, but the right way. Its gritty and fuels emotion. Pink Flag is one of my all time favorite albums because of its diversity. Its an album that obviously inspired a lot of other amazing artist. For instanceMinor Treat went on to do a cover of 12XU. I personally didn’t care for Rollins Band era Henry, but I did enjoy his cover of Wires song Ex Lion Tamer. The Minutemen looked to this album for inspiration in writing short songs.
