It was just such a great time for discovering new bands. You could pick up a sampler for like, $10, and off the back of that there would be at least 2 or 3 bands you’d get into. For me the gateway drugs were Offspring and Green Day that lead into Pulley, Ten Foot Pole, Satanic Surfers, Refused…and don’t forget the Aussie bands - Bodyjar, Toe To Toe, Mindsnare, Frenzal. What a time to be alive.
This was on repeat all day yesterday. Some solid post-rock with a lot of variety
endorse this sublime attitude
Moves to beach, gets into sublime…
no bueno james, no bueno…
omg had to google this band, fml.
Been listening to this non stop all week
Just can’t get enough of this at the moment:
From 2011 with Rodrigo Alfaro on vocals. What do you mean who’s Rodrigo Alfaro? He’s the lead singer of Satanic Surfers, geez. Continuing my standard of getting into bands after they’ve broken up. Check out their album ‘Currents’ if you’re partial to Ignite or Propagandhi…Nik.
Turned Out a Punk (podcast by the singer from Fucked Up) did a great episode interviewing the guitarist from Satanic Surfers. I feel like they might have mentioned this band… but i didn’t follow up.
Saw the Flaming Lips last night.
They were excellent.
They put on such a good spectacle of a show, makes other bands seem a bit dull by comparison.
I find this band to be amazing, both infectious and powerful. but watching live clips takes it to another level.
Their set from Glastonbury is really good too
for the recommend, Iooks like music I enjoy
Yeah! Never fight a man with a perm!
Man, this is rad! Nice one Nikcee
late to party but new Darkthrone record bangs so hard. Fenriz is the absolute king of kings.
Also means I can start ‘influencing’ the child’s musical tastes more
I think I’m being more influenced by the kids than the other way around, saw these girls last night to close out Lost Lands festival, they were unreal
They are playing a free festival (open spaces) at the Abbotsford convent soon.
Yep we’re on it. They’re on 5:15 on Sunday
nearly the end of 2010, so we’re due for a chart topping roundup from now to the beginning of time
pretty, pretty good
