Newz U Can Uze

A few news items:

  • Sadly, Karl Mueller, the bassist for the band Soul Asylum, died recently. What does this have to do with hardcore you ask? Well, Karl was in the band Loud Fast Rules; who conveniently enough Something I Learned Today, one of my favorite blogs, just blogged about. Soul Asylum also came out of the same scene that gave us bands like Husker Du and The Replacements.
  • I was very impressed by Splitting Headache’s set this weekend. Featuring ex-members of Full Speed Ahead, Tear It Up, Forward To Death, and Cut The Shit, Splitting Headache plays hardcore not dissimilar to those bands. They are going to have an ep out on Collapse Records soon. You can check out mp3’s here.
