Re: Great Escape Artist followup

I think Perry wanted that too as some point, but he's too goofy to sell out correctly. :lol: :lol: That's so fucking true. And I'd find it hard to believe that Perkins has been playing so standardly only because of Ezrin. To me, someone who actually studied him quite profoundly at some point, it fe...

Re: Great Escape Artist followup

The only reason for a follow-up is the excellent possibility of naming it The Greatest Gay Parties, which would cause all sorts of funny misunderstandings in the 3 or 4 record shops that would have JA records.

Best Mike Watt tracks?

After listening to Mike’s interview involving our own guysmiley (well fucking done!), I got to reading about his discography and went back to listen my favourite songs of his. In general, I’m not too fond of the music he does, but there are some tracks that I adore, all from the same album: In the E...

Re: What made your day today?

Got interviewed by Mike Watt with my bandmates for his podcast yesterday. Was surreal and fun. A big musical hero of mine. Thanks to a board member for getting us on. https://www.twfps.com/past-episodes/on-air-guests-born-shit-stirrers-from-fukuoka-japan-via-skype That's really fucking cool! Well d...

Absolutely brutal. If I'd been there watching that, I'd have thought it was a nuclear blast. That "shape" of the explosion and the expanding wave are drilled into my brain as "nuclear blast".

Re: Great Escape Artist followup

Exact +1 with Mescal. Didn’t want to say anything because the reaction was mostly positive from my dear ANR’ers. For me, what they did has no real redeeming qualities.

Re: Santiago under curfew

Last night, our “president” gave his yearly public account. His popularity is awful, and basically everyone hates him and knows he’s the worst fuckup since the end of Pinochet’s dictatorship. A few hours before his public account, he pardoned two human right criminals who had been condemned two year...

Re: Porno for Pyros Reunion July 30th

Now awful. This might be the best sound mix ever: drumsticks on rim at 200%, voice at 150%, guitar at 30% and bass at 8%. Just like P4P of yore. Well, this has me putting on GGU for the first time in awhile. Criminally under appreciated album. I listened to it too yesterday, after quite a while. I t...

Re: Porno for Pyros Reunion July 30th

I think we all agree that, even tough Pets it's their main hit, there are not *bad* PFP songs, right? I mean, we can like some songs more or less, but those two albums have superb quality. And apparently there's also going to be a new Jane's Addiction show, and not a re-stream: https://www.instagra...

Re: 2020 US Racial/Political Protests and Riots

I'm interested in reading, if that's worth anything. I'm not commenting much here, but I do read. I find it a bit sad how predictable this all is. When we had the protests here last year, I might have even predicted that this would happen in the US, and that the police would use the exact same tacti...

Shops and restaurants and other similar business are to remain closed, ...

Jane's Addiction absolutely had punk DNA. Anything that is fuck you, in your face, challenging the system has that DNA.
Absolutely.

However, they weren’t a punk rock band at all.
