Kicked In-Demo.

This is another KC band that I like seeing play. It's a lot more of a modern youth crew meets 80's NYHC style band, which I find refreshing seeing as a lot of bands these days seem to write songs that have none of the guts of old style hardcore. This band is made up of good dudes that write good songs to get buck wild to.

Sex Prisoner- Demo/7"

This band is some friends of mine from Tucson, they were young kids when I was doing shows and playing in Lake Effect but they've definitely created some powerviolence that makes me jealous that the Effect didn't sound more like this... They have harder mosh breaks than Weekend Nachos and the vocals are a perfect Crossed Out impersonation; throw in some Man is the Bastard noise and that's a good idea of what Sex Prisoner is all about. I'm stoked on their use of imagery from the Russian Criminal Tattoo book series. Download this and then go buy the 7" from To Live A Lie records, or from the band.

No Class- Demo.

This KC band is one of the best hardcore bands in the midwest. The sound is very 80's but with some Japanese style riffs thrown in to keep it catchy without being poppy. When we played with them in KC at Bandwagon Merch their live show reminded me of '82 era Circle Jerks, which is probably one of the best compliments I can give. They've got an LP on Derranged now, but here's the demo. Which apparently is entirely written about singer Neil's ex girlfriend, which normally I don't back, but you have to love lines like "The way you treat me is like a hate crime." which goes far beyond relationships and I find myself relating to in my daily life more than I should admit. Enjoy.

Next time, Sex Prisoner's 7".

Fancy That.

Fantasy Football League.

I took my Honda bobber to my buddy Zack's in Waukegan to see about welding a tailpipe on it. He's a fabricator/mechanic/pinstriper/maniac and has alot of skill with a torch. He says to me "Yeah I could give the pipe a fish tail too if you want." I told him afew other things that have been bugging me about the bike, namely that it's a bobber but the guy that had it before me was trying to make it look like some sort of chopper and that the chop job on the frame was pretty budget.

Next thing I know I start getting photos like these sent to me...

Looks like I won't have as much work cut out for me this winter as I planned. Though I'm sure I can think of more stuff to tweak.

Bark at the Moon.

This was a cool neck piece I got to do.

Swing Gate.

Copped this Bob Shaw swing gate off of Bill Palister. It was running with no capacitor and was quite a killer so I re-sprung it and put a capacitor on it and now it's running smooth as can be.
