The Problem of Leisure

How was your trip to the mall? Did you get in line before the store opened? Before the sun came up? Did you run through the doors when they opened, your heart racing as you pushed and shoved down the aisle to get to that great deal? I do love a new purchase, don't you? This heaven gives me migraine. Did you hit all the stores? Did you get everything you were looking for? Do you feel satisfied?

Punk Rock Memory Lane

Watching the Joe Strummer documentary the other night got me to thinking about the Clash and the mid-70's punk scene in England and how it is possible for Art to be both Political and Fun.

American Hardcore documents the American scene a few years later, during the "second wave" of punk, when bands like Black Flag and Bad Brains roamed the country, spawning scenes wherever they played.

Majick Mango Chutney

debuted our majick rainbow station at last night's Electric Possible. thank you to all who attended. enjoyed John Berndt and Tyler Wilcox intense Baltimore free-jazz sax scrawls, Aleasthete's tiny toy music, Field Shaman's ambient guitar and cello zone, Safe's bank of blinking lights and humming mics. thinking back I realized I was the only performer who stood up to play (this was not a conscious decision)...last night was also the debut of our "limited edition" (read: the stencil crapped out after 30 prints) 3 CD-R set, still smelly from paint and ink fumes (good for huffing before listening to the disc)....this will eventually make its way onto cyberpace somewhere.... Jason of Aleasthete compared our sound to the sensation when you first try mango chutney; you can't decide whether you like it or hate it.
