Faith No More

I heard "Midlife Crisis" the other day on Indie 103.1 and remembered how much I loved these guys. Their hard hitting yet fun punk-rap-funk sound paved the way for many modern acts. Their performance on SNL (the one where Mike Patton humps the fan on the side of the stage) was one of those eye opening musical moments for me as a kid.

Although he has gone off the deep end with his lackluster subsequent solo projects (Mr. Bungle, Lovage, Peeping Tom, etc), Patton's music with Faith No More remains poignant.

Reunion anyone?

Anthony Kiedis To Bring Story To HBO

Anthony Kiedis is working with HBO on adapting his autobiography Scar Tissue for an upcoming TV show. If you haven't read Scar Tissue I highly recommend it. Its the tale of his upbringing in a drug filled household in West Hollywood in the late 1970's, his rise to fame with Red Hot Chili Peppers and his subsequent drug addiction.

Read the full story HERE.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act

A good number of my recent posts have been removed by Blogger under the new Digital Millennium Copyright Act. I guess they have received complaints from labels or other copyright holders, so I have complied and taken the posts down.

Although I love sharing new tunes with you guys I'm not trying to go out like that Chinese Democracy guy.

Totally Michael

More electro-pop punk for all your Death Set heads out there.

Sounds like a mix of Blink 182 and Matt & Kim. "Casual Satisfaction" is one of the most stupidly awesome songs I've heard in a while.

What Happened To? - Tom Vek

I just heard "C-C" online and I forgot how dope this dude was. On his myspace all it says regarding his whereabouts is "Tom continues to work on the follow up to 2005 debut "We Have Sound."

Come back Tom!

Electro, rap, punk craziness from the Spank Rock/Plastic Little camp, Ninjasonik was born to wild out and rock parties with their quirky style.

I wish I could have caught some of their recent East Coast shows with The Death Set, from the pictures it looked like mass alcohol-infused hysteria.
