  • When an album leaks online before it arrives in stores
  • Birmingham based Death Punk. Like a demonic Black Bloc storming the stock exchange with baseball bats, this album belts out of the speakers and storms around the room taking no prisoners
  • An interesting site to find out more about underground bands. it's more a discography site but useful if you want more information about a band.

  • DJ at MWR – www.musicworldradio.com – usually spinning weird punk, psychobilly & odd indie stuff mixed with some outragious 80s synth… Originally danish, living in Spain ( Javea ).

    Anyone with a taste for weird tunes and rotten relics. Bands wanting some airplay, grooving venues or what not…get in touch

  • Jay Reatard : Since the release of the debut album from his first band, The Reatards, back when he was only seventeen, Jay (from Memphis, Tennessee) has redefined the word prolific by clocking up fifteen further album releases with various bands as well as one solo album, the mind-blowing ‘Blood Visions’ (In The Red, 2006). In spite of the long string of dead punk band carcasses, people are only starting to notice Jay’s insane talent. Hot shit in his homeland, expectation for his forthcoming European tour is close to fever pitch and he’s recently just signed a long-term deal with Matador Records who released six 7” singles in quick succession through the summer of 2008 and for those not hung up on collecting, a compilation release of them followed later in the year.

  • Burn fm is holding a BOTB with a few other societies (Rock Society, Band Society) and Vale Fest, a charity festival entirely run by students. Any profits from the £5 ticket price will go towards the Vale Festival charities.

Life in a Blender endurance test

February 10, 2009

You’ve swallowed fire. Bags of it. While watching the oil spots in your driveway. You’ve shaved kittens and held them in your armpits and made it through airport security. When savages knocked on your door one Saturday afternoon, with Bibles and tattoo guns and offers of magazine subscriptions, you dropped your weeding implement and lied still as a log in the front yard, until one ample savage, with nothing but a buckskin Kleenex shading his wampum maker, decided to park it on you and enjoy a little luncheon. Salami, dressed in a scanty two slices of bread and just a tease of mustard with a plug of lettuce. Oooh, time to eat it! “Wait ‘til you hear the noises I will make when I’m eating you!! I wish I brought earplugs so I wouldn’t have to hear myself enjoying you so much. Cuz’ I’m a loud enjoyer, baby, and everyone knows it.” That made you squirm a little, but you admit to a Pringle© of pleasure. Why must you sit on me so?!!

The point is Life in a Blender will be playing a deluxe acoustic two-hour set at Barbes in Brooklyn (6th Avenue and 9th Street) on Monday, February 16, from 7 pm – 9pm. We’ll be open for requests of all kinds, so e-mail now so we might learn them. The show is free other than the price of your soul, but how much is that well-compromised soul of yours worth any way? When you grow up on a diet of lies like y
ou, it’s no wonder your soul is worth less than a photograph of an old feather. If mother didn’t like you so much, I would flush you like last night’s Corsican pate. You know I like you; I just have a horrible reaction when I’m around you.

Kids are welcome!! All ages.

Call Don at 206 295 6024 for more information.

Leamington Spa is one of about 300 similar towns that lay claim to having an oak tree that lies slap bang in the centre of the country.
