Oddball Vintage Photo Set: Youth, Tenderness, and Skipping Class in the 90's

Oddball Vintage Photo Set: Youth, Tenderness, and Skipping Class in the 90’s

It would be impossible to say what our favorite feature in our eleventh print release Junkie Business might be. Everyone was perfect. We could weep into eternity our gratitude for each person who had a part in this edition. Though we can say none of the submissions warmed our heart near as much as this...
Album Review: Thelma and the Sleaze - Fuck. Marry. Kill

Album Review: Thelma and the Sleaze – Fuck. Marry. Kill

It takes time to get where we are going, things evolve, our foot may ease the pedal off the floor a bit but in its place you get to feel that suspension tapping out the quarter mile rhythm on a back road burn sesh without a cop in site and sunlight still left to freeze...
Drunk Mums: US Tour | New Songs |  World Domination

Drunk Mums: US Tour | New Songs | World Domination

Having gone hard for five solid years now, spoon feeding Drunk Mums to every poor bastard I rub shoulders with, now less than a week until these Australian gods finally (FINALLLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) smell up Hotel Vegas, I daydream of the halo hazed optimism, the restored faith in a very alive still kicking spirit of rock n...

Film Review: Alita: Battle Angel (NO SPOILERS)

Film Review: Alita: Battle Angel (NO SPOILERS)

We as an audience find ourselves intrigued by her mystery; drawn to the shadow, squinting into the abyss with excitement of the potential sensed boiling beneath the surface. Alita is a martial arts film disguised as a heroes journey and that is what makes it great.

Mixtape Monday: Politics as Usual (An Open Letter to America)

  The only thing holding this one together is the ethos.
Fanclub: All The Same EP and Instagram Takeover!

Fanclub: All The Same EP and Instagram Takeover!

Fanclub: All The Same EP and Instagram Takeover! By Jay Armstrong   I meant every word I said back in August gushing over Fanclub. What I did not know then, even in the light of such positive feelings, is how much getting their latest six songs would hit when playing it. This All The Same...
Missing Pages: Long Way Down and a Love Letter To Stephen Svacina

Missing Pages: Long Way Down and a Love Letter To Stephen Svacina

There was though a spirit crying out to us from the wilderness of our small nowhere nothing nobody towns which tempted us to risk the comfort of the familiar to land in a foreign place of culture shock and suffocating all alone and to know even on the darkest defeated nights that if we kept...

The Reputations: Loving Them Is Easy

The Reputations: Loving Them Is Easy

The Reputations radiate in what would best be called the Stevie Nicks effect. Loving them is easy.
Willy Vanilla - "American Neck"

Willy Vanilla – “American Neck”

Willy Vanilla – “American Neck” By Jay Armstrong Willy Vanilla’s American Neck is lighthearted as hell. If only talent were allowed to speak in a space devoid of ego-maniacal ambitions more often. Every song has its own spine, its own strut. These guys aren’t trying to force an angle or end result. They don’t fall...
New Attractions - "Hole In My Heart"

New Attractions – “Hole In My Heart”

New Attractions – “Hole In My Heart” By Jay Armstrong   It is no secret that my love for The Rich Hands goes deep. Not a week passes without throwing on one of their records, especially Take Care, so hearing the New Attractions first release “Hole In My Heart” obviously hit with a blind force...
New Crush: Fanclub

New Crush: Fanclub

New Crush: Fan Club by Jay Armstrong After all these years hanging in the back refusing to acknowledge beyond waning disinterest the failed synth attempts to sell pop for popularity one could easily grow weary and suspect of all things falling in that direction.  Never though will that be the case, I sit candle lit...
Bustin' Loose - Trouble Boys Video Premiere and Tour Kickoff

Bustin’ Loose – Trouble Boys Video Premiere and Tour Kickoff

Trouble Boys – Bustin’ Loose By Jay Armstrong Video Premiere and Tour Dates   Last month when we said “Trouble Boys make the best goddamn rock and roll Austin has felt this side of The Skunks,” you can believe we meant it. As they head out on tour this week here is your chance to...
Trouble Boys: Bigger Than The Both Of Us

Trouble Boys: Bigger Than The Both Of Us

Trouble Boys Bigger Than the Both of Us By Jay Armstrong In my own living room, as I’m hitting stride on some puffed chest ego stroking story about kicking dust with Cheetah Chrome and Bobby Liebling on some otherwise forgettable night of recent past, a friend interrupts asking “who are they? Should I know them?”...
Welcome To Our Hearts Haze County

Welcome To Our Hearts Haze County

Welcome To Our Hearts Haze County by Jay Armstrong I am in love with Haze County. These first songs are a selfish organic release of compounded layered expression yet speak to the ALL our individual spirits gravitate towards. Haze County breathes through frantic frenzied technique blurred beneath a rare sensitivity towards the bigger cohesive whole....
Crypt Trip Get Back To Their Roots

Crypt Trip Get Back To Their Roots

Crypt Trip Get Back To Their Roots By: Jay Armstrong   Sure I’ve written warmly about them before, sure seeing them on a bill raises the quality standard of an excuse I need to stay under a blanket reading for the night, yet there has always been an underlying intangible which kept me from fully...
Film Review: Call Me By Your Name

Film Review: Call Me By Your Name

It is no simple task to express the alive and the confusion of touching the all in those fading days of youth when the near violent sweep within us from weeping sadness and blind burning excitement shifts in a single breath leaving us lost as our knowledge fails us beneath the screaming of our hearts...
SASS

SASS

SASS By Jay Armstrong   In a world of sham and plastic, where the view of the future optimistic finds itself walled by new condos and business park skyscrapers, knowing we can’t go back, what we have now and what we choose to do with it is detrimental. The importance lies in counting our allies,...

Friday the 13th: Nostalgia, Films, and a Celebration of Fictional Occult Terror

Nostalgia, Films, and a Celebration of Fictional Occult Terror By Jay Armstrong     Take some advice from a dude sitting in his boxers eating three day old cold pizza; find something you geek about and celebrate it. Ask those around you to celebrate it with you. Make it a THING. Maybe you are a...
IT: A Film Above the Criticism

IT: A Film Above the Criticism

IT A Film Above the Criticism By Jay Armstrong As nostalgic exploitation and cultural appropriation choke the soul out of the last vestiges of creativity, we look back on the golden age of cult fanaticism through the lens of IT, our cold shallow like/not-like hearts boldly warmed to life once more through what we are...

Rock N Roll, Politics, & Seattle: An Interview with Dopers

Rock N Roll, Politics, & Seattle: An Interview with Dopers By Jay Armstrong There are times when sitting down to write about a band feels impossibly hollow, working more to void the attraction of the songs they create. Qualifiers and labels by nature are divisive, this becomes less an issue once we have held hands...

Jon Chamberlain: Representing the Void

Jon Chamberlain: Representing the Void By Jay Armstrong “Capturing people when they let their guard down is what makes a portrait special to me.” – Jon Chamberlain   While the art is familiarized and internally grasped by so many, photographers find themselves shadowed by our swipe-swipe-swipe indulgences in this digital age, no longer do we...
