Agnostic Front-Death Threat-Fit For Abuse @ CBGB December 2004

We totally blew it at this show. Obviously, the draw here was Fit For Abuse but we left pretty late and ended up missing them. We got there just as Death Threat (sadly not Deathreat) began playing. Agnostic Front set up and Roger went into some variation on “This is our first song, from our first album…” and the place went off. Played a lot of the hits plus some surprising songs from later records (such as New Jack) and an assortment of “newer” songs. They were good, but a bit sloppy. At the end of the set, they busted…

May Reviews

Siamese Twins Demo More Nu-Shoegazer stuff from this band. I seem to be checking out a lot of these bands lately. This six song demo is pretty good, but not something that is really drawing my attention that much. I’m not a big fan of Catherine Wheel and that, along with a bit of Lush, is what this demo reminds me of. There are some elements of The Cure or Sisters of Mercy immersed in their sound as well, which is a little different but nevertheless not really my thing. Big shoegazer fans will want to check this out. Outlast New Jersey…

Signifying Nothing 03×05

I think, at this point, the podcast is going to be canceled, or, at least, released in a different form than weekly (I’m thinking maybe a longer, monthly, show? Man, I can’t imagine how Al does two hours a week!). Since the show came back for the fall, listenership has been sporadic. This will leave the written portion of Signifying Nothing as the main focus. I have a large backlog of reviews to post, plus some other features I’d like to implement. Let’s see what happens as we experiment with this new format. Hopefully, people care enough to check it…

Born/Dead-Endless War…Repetition

Born/Dead Endless War…Repetition CD Prank Records I wasn’t that familiar with Born/Dead before Prank sent this CD in. This Oakland band play raging crusty hardcore somewhat similar to Deathreat, Midnight, and other bands of that nature. Born/Dead aren’t quite as good as Deathreat but I enjoyed listening to this CD, which collects a few different records including a split with Consume. There is also a pretty awesome Necros cover on here. I would check this one out.

Signal Lost-You’ll Never Get Us Down Again

Signal Lost You’ll Never Get Us Down 7” Prank Records After loving 2004’s Children Of The Wasteland, Signal Lost have come back with four more songs of excellent melodic hardcore. This record reminds me a lot of Husker Du and even some DC emo. If you liked their first LP this is a great progression from that. My only, minor, complaint is that Ashley’s vocals seem to be mixed pretty low. I liked on Children… how her vocals were so high in the mix and really stuck out on the record. Former members of Deathreat and J-Church.

Mind Eraser

Mind Eraser are my favorite hardcore band right now. I was very impressed by their demo and then totally blown away by the Cave LP. I did this interview last week with Chris Corry. *** Was releasing the demo online a conscious choice the band made? In the age of $5 demo tapes and CDR demos that can hold 80 minutes of music but only have three songs on them, it was quite refreshing to see the Mind Eraser stuff online for everyone with a net connection to be able to check out. Nah it wasn’t really any kind of…
