COOL MUSIC spring/summer 2014

I wrote this for Nuts! #14 but turns out there’s no room fo it! So here ya go.

NUTS! #14 out July 25th!

COOL RECORDS

New S.H.I.T. 7” on Iron Lung Records is really good. I’ll show you a stagedive during “Nobody Knows Anybody.” - For real - the last time I saw S.H.I.T. play that song I dove hard, straight in to the concrete floor. I knocked myself out and fractured my shoulder ha! The A side, “This is Hell” on the ASPECTS OF WAR 7” is insane! A soul stomper for sure! The other songs are cool too, but ASPECTS OF WAR knew the hit goes on side A! From London, GOOD THROB, have a LP out called Fuck Off. The vocals and lyrics are awesome. I know what they’re saying when in “Mummy I’m Ugly,” she’s yelling, “Friday night on payday I’m starting to feel good / ten gin and tonics I’m feeling supersonic / reach out for someone to tell them the good news / but I spoke too soon / I see my face reflected in a spoon / and It’s mummy I’m ugly.” But my favorite track on the album is “No Taste.” The build up to the chorus feels triumphant. Like, “Hell yeah I’ve got no taste!” Jason from BLOTTER bought a big bag of Tootsie Pops so that before his band played he would eat a blue one and then during their set while he was singing he could stick out his tongue and it would be blue. But in actuality, I think Jason bought the lollipops because he likes candy. Why is the BLOTTER 7” called Under Armour ’77? Whatever it means, this record rocks! It’s muddled and intense - but makes you feel fucked up - but it’s still punk hardcore rock’n’roll. DAMAGES from LA have a new EP called Reality Disease and my song on it is “What’s Left For Us.” Damn it’s so good. It’s punk, sad and catchy. I feel it.

COOL TAPES

CRAZY SPIRIT’s new demo is awesome. They’re so unique and the new songs further the sound of music into future punk expression, in a way that I want to be a part of, ya know? And their lead singer sounds like a baby pirate. Cream of the Crop is a cool tape comp made by Best Before 84 from Portland, Oregon. So many great bands, and lots of them contribute to this tape with previously unreleased songs. It’s got big huge plastic packaging with a punk-ass hand-screened colorful poster inside! LA’s got the coolest tapes right now. The new BLAZING EYE tape is deep and tough. Not for wimps. There’s a song where it sounds like he’s yelling, “I Will Kill You I will kill you I will kill you!” The TOZCOS tape is great too. It’s bouncy and urgent. The parts that make up the songs are thoughtful and interesting. LA is the coolest also because of GRIMA, DAMAGES, SADICOS, and now GUN OUTFIT! GUN OUTFIT has a cool new tape too. Keeping it real forever with mellow jams that are stoned, soulful and groovy. Like sitting in a rowboat in an algae filled pond just drifting around in the sun, smoking weed and watching fish.

DIRTY JOE AND THE BRICK WALLS

Shannen interviewed new Olympia HC band, DIRTY JOE AND THE BRICK WALLS, on Facebook for Nuts! #13 (OUT VERY SOON!) but there wasn’t enough room to print it! Here it is:


mike - where are you from? Buffalo, NY what do you love/hate about olympia? I like seeing mountains around town instead of abandoned buildings. I like the amount of coffee and Asian food places here, and seeing seals is cool. As far as music, I just like being able to see bands that would rarely come through the Great Lakes region. And the fact that there are a number of NW bands making awesome music lately. Things I hate here? Nothing that I wouldn’t also hate anywhere else, I guess. It’d be nice if it wasn’t as big a hassle to get kids to pay for shows. Tell me about your relationship with your instruments? I play guitar. I enjoy it. I don’t know how much deeper it goes than that. What are you mad about? Most things.

Joey Where are you from? Olympia, Washington. what do you love/hate about olympia? I love that olympia’s rich music scene and some of the people in it. tell me about your relationship with your instruments? I can play guitar, bass and drums. i love playing all three but i have the most fun playing drums… that being said it is mad expensive. What are you mad about? I am mad at entitled kids thinking the world owes them anything.

do you want me to format this differently?

no this looks good!
perfect timing too
are there more coming?

DIRTY IAN - where are you from? Singapore what do you love/hate about olympia? I love that Olympia has motivated people in it and that it takes music seriously. I love that everyone works hard and puts out stuff and creates things. I hate that it has a lot of precocious do nothings who think they’re Jesus Christ. I have learned to avoid them but they seem to come seek me out every once in a while. Fuck em, I could care less what they think because I am way smarter than they are. Tell me about your relationship with your instruments? One time Joey rented a trumpet in 5th grade, he told me that once when we were getting burritos from a taco truck. What are you mad about? People who can convince themselves of anything.

haha ians are direct

any words from you?

Joe Where are you from? Seattle, Wa What do you love/hate about olympia? My friends are the reason I ever moved and still come to Olympia. What is a Day in the life as Joe Mabbatt? Wake up, work, get fucked up and sleep and wake up and work and get fucked up all over again When did you stop wearing wife beaters? or are you still wearing it? lost it at my old house nut hut when i moved out. RIP Tell me about your relationship with your instruments? I sing, play bass and guitar in bands. Singing helps me get anger out while playing bass and guitar is more relaxing for me so it ends up being pretty chill be able to play more than one instrument for bands i’m in. What are you mad at? The world and myself

also recording for a 7” sometime in feb or march
