Hard Times - Little Satan

At first glance the title reminded me of a close friend's wife. Then first listen I heard the punk rock. Kinda cringey, garagey, retro or proto even.  In fact the papers say it is, and I must agree. A slicing combination of members from Suicide Generation, Desperate Fun and Lysergics, you know there should be some offerings just from the lineup.

You will not be disappointed.  Good driving rock n roll never goes out of style, the power chords, a spot of melody on some grunge n grit. Makes ya wanna drank, makes ya wanna dance, makes ya wanna move.  It's all there. Hard Times, comin' your way!

Dirty Water Records



Psychedelics via india seem thickly hazed into the background while the ride flows like the thick smoke of the Nag Champa alighting the cerebral way.  Nice soundscapes tinged with just enough feedback, dissonance, counterpoint and finesse, as to roll a fine 12 step joint.

All the way, from start until finish rich encounters of ambient entity unfold multi-plot fascinations not reliant upon themes, just a flow.  A few pieces extend to derision almost to the breaking point, but seem to descale the mountain as quick as they went up.

Things like stuck in a barrel are hybrid concoctions owing a big to do to the masters of mind washed past.  Yet just as easily could be one slip adventures to the other side on any given afternoon.

Through it all though, you hear the drone of the call, the lamentations hinted at yet never realized of the temples, the structured failure of the idle grasp. Reality explored, worldly senses on hold, a wonder to behold.



Sound slightly flavored of the tropics, Afro-carribbean scene with a click and a boom on a low introduction dancehall rhythm. Talks of parties, money and hot ass bodies.  Seems about right.


Review: GOAL DIGGA - Thick Pon Thick

Skip beat stabs build a foundation for the hot talk flavored Goal Digga to slang bout coochie before dude comes in throwin stone bringing the tension up slick on the pillared muffin top.  She's a cutter...



Living Gate - Deathlust

Top core old school death metal, some of the best currently going. This EP is heavy like a son of a bitch, blasting metal from beginning to end. Progressive, technical and raw, the music slides along a fault line of power chords and arpeggios ready to explode at any time. Slamming beats from hell lay the underlying propelling force pushed to epic proportions blowing like the apocalypse coming down on stuff like Heaven Ablaze.  Precise in time and execution, the band will catch the groove and give you just enough so when they switch gears, your neck takes a second to catch up. See the title track for exacting reference. Damned good stuff - Relapse Records



Subaholic's - Liberia

Nothing but pure juice here for the house scene. Slinking bass link pars with a high hat straight pulse over a locked 4 (or is that 16?) kick.  Stabs bring you the augmentation, vocal samples provide a melodic/pseudo psychedelic sensation, and the drop is as sublime as it is heavy.  This is how classic house is done!


Yo Gotti - H.O.E. Heaven On Earth

Classic bounce n hustle. Rhythmic horn rips & spits slang back runnin' right in the chorus as a break down before the bass brings it back in. Talkin code & what you need to do to make it roll. Sometimes that's all you need. Another Yo Gotti main liner scene stealer.


Mean Motor Scooter - Mr. Sophistication

Buck shuffles, vigorous sing a longs, slight up tick hard downbeat like texans are known for. Proto punk, a notch above power pop, one down from pure garage; mostly because the vocals and the riffs don't give a damn. Another gem from Dirty Water continuing their domination of international power pop punk as it is. This time blasting an American juice box out of the thick haze of the underground.

4 of the 5 numbers on this EP hit hard, Portals can be forgiven for not making it a complete freak out.  Still for rockin' cool it's top grade. Zombie Cop, Put me Down Like A Dog, they sing to the heart of the streets. Garage door open live band style, like all yer neighbors need to know....

Review: Lucy & The Rats - Got Lucky

Lucy & The Rats - Got Lucky

At times pure retro pop stylings; simple melodic pieces, harmonic vocals sang in key, single string catchy leads and a heavy backbeat.  Works fantastic in a few memorable spots on their new album.  I liked the first one from the band a couple of years ago, yet this new full length brandishes a shimmering feel with just enough power to rock on while tattooing your memory with unforgettable rhythmic melodies when it hits on all cylinders. Songs like Real Thing rock with that 50's/60's early power pop driving feel.  Finding the better bands in this territory is a specialty their label Dirty Water Records excels at.  They find 2-3 gems a year and are building a classic master catalog of english beat, pop punk, punk rock and straight up rock n roll.

In fact, "most" of this record rocks pretty hard, Pinch Myself is another presented with drive and attitude.  There is bit of downtime with a few slow numbers that really can't make it with the rest, but often in the industry we find such music as "singles" for whatever reasons. IMHO something like Not One Tear are primed for that. Or maybe Dark Clouds. Then numbers such as Sorry, or Jelly Baby Baby almost get there, but not quite.  So overall this is a good release, with just a tad of adjustments and intensity up, it really could be happening. Maybe a high 6 or 7 outta 10.

The choice is not yours to do nothing, do nothing or mostly nothing anyway, we all lose.....

NO2 is the main cause of "normalized" PSC phenomenon. Normalized Persistent Spreading Contrail phenomenon is non artificial injection of gases and particulate matter into our atmosphere.

Created or "artificial" PSC would be things like geoengineering or weather modification programs in action....

Besides what we pour into the atmosphere melting ice and permafrost add currently per year as much as our activities do every five years. Our activities are the main driving factors creating premature (non climatic circular) conditions causing ice shelf destabilization, oceanic warming at an increased rate, and arctic permafrost destruction; which in turn exacerbates destabilizing conditions in a growing feedback loop.

Generally with us as contributors outside climatic circular conditions (natural climate changes), we are creating non-sustainable conditions for most animal life upon this planet. Information like from this NASA Earth data goes far in confirming we are destroying the habitat with our economy and lifestyles.

This is just one thing as you get that bad ass economy back kicking and we are a species can get back to "normal" which must be dealt with in a consistent manner. The species lifestyle either drastically changes or the natural state will lend itself to destruction of the parasitic species.

Along with too, at least here in this country, is NO PUBLIC HEALTHCARE. Something just a slight bit worse than this Corona thing will, IF your don't get a hand on your government and make them devise one, will slaughter your people and completely destroy your economic stability.

Those choices are not to be solved with denial and political arguing. If you're on some kick about no public healthcare initiative in the US and taking sides on denial about the mess your species is having on the environment, hate it for you, but you're fucking up.

That is hard cold reality.


Reign Of Darkness: Season 2 Episode 1: The Virus

From Issue 71 of The Underground Sound - http://undergroundrecords.org/sound

UK and others have posted public plans, US administration blows smoke up your asses

 This is a side article for a larger one which I wrote which speaks about the dismal state of public health in the US and how something with widespread potential such as this will one day kill millions here because people have allowed the government to slash and burn public health care and ANY health services for the poor to the ground...

maybe not now (but it might) but sooner than later, something like this will bite you in the ass so hard you'll only have to blame yourselves for refusing to see it coming when it was shining a light in your face and blowing a massive horn while it roared down on you....

Underground Sound Issue 71 @ http://undergroundrecords.org/sound


The UK "Plan" for handling Corona. Meanwhile here in the states they haven't even got tests to the hospitals much less private care doctors.

Before anyone sez it's just a thing, another hysteria blown out by the internet this happens all the time, warm weather is gonna kill it it'll "magically disappear" (what kinda dolt says stupid shit like that?); this type of disease as an unknown variant which MUTATES, is anything but "kinda like a bad flu" happens all the time thing.

More than likely for months now here, and with some of you I've read posts on here, and being sick myself, this type of variant is distinctive and has already put some of you in the hospital PLUS many more people I talked to have been sick as hell with pneumonia and bad flu-type illness including a number of people I know who've been sick with terrible respiratory illnesses IN THE HOSPITAL but not the "flu", because they were checked. I've known three people died in the last TWO WEEKS with bad "flu's" or something....this shit has already killed people.

It's probably more or less massively widespread but they've only been testing for it sporadically very recently. It will rage for a while now and the many who will get sick over the next two months here will never know because our fucked up system here and conman government will not even know who the fuck has it...

At least the UK has a published plan..

here in the USA, we've got stupid idiots arguing about who's gonna pay for vaccines and testing, that it's a hoax, that it just a few hundred people, in China it's ending (yes believe their government, for sure) so it will here too in a few weeks....blah, blah,blah....

When it starts killin your folk ya'll will get your head out your GD ass. Demand better public health by your government here, the whole time all this good timin' has been going on (years now it's all we've heard) the gangsters runnin' this joint have done nothing but tear down public health. This is a wake up call.

Data Brokering That Big Ass

Partial list of databrokers who are selling your shit. 

The Dossier Act would either outlaw much of the more invasive data collection and require any company (including good 'ol Zuck & the Googlers)
makin' jack off your name, likeness and infos (aka data), to share the wealth. 

They no like. 

They get ornery and send mucho calvary.

It has been proven. We have the data.

Ain't shit you can do about any of it, this data brokering bullshit besides "opting out" if that is offered. You can add all your credit bureaus as well
to this list


Pitiful US Government Response (Donnie J has put the kibosh on reform, the more the G and their corporate partners & quasi-entities know about you it's been decided, the better. At the minimum there is massive bank to be made. Just make sure peon you report properly and pay ALL your taxes.):


Some these organizations are also members or associates of the Lords Criminal Organization, which is honored, protected and encouraged by many member nations.  

Organizations and individuals involved in the real-world deep state shadow, those proliferators of The Madness, have been observed partially to a great deal making use
of not only these public facing data brokers, but creating partial to extensive dossiers & databases of their own.  

Much of their activity is treasonous unlawfulness @ http://undergroundrecords.org/archives/issue70


Guaranteeing societal breakdown

"in the future when society breaks down and the homeless fill the woods along the interstates, increasing numbers of the crazy and downtrodden will become compelled to state they have plans to kill figures of authority in order to procure residences of prisons and hospitals to alleviate their societal hardships of no where to stay and nothing to eat....." 

Reign Of Darkness Season One Episode Three, Opening Caption
TW (c) 2018


Donnie J's proposed budget to cut $4.4 trillion in government spending over a decade; targets Medicare prescription drug program to slash $130 billion. Cut $292 billion from Medicaid and food stamps, $70 billion by limiting disability benefits, cut the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget by 26 percent,  Department of Housing and Urban Development’s budget by 15 percent, funding of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by nine percent......


Do stupid morons not understand those programs will have to GROW by that much to keep up with the growing poor and low income populations, growing environmental mess and affordable housing shortages? Not to mention disease prevention in the face of things like Corona do not wait for you to balance budgets and strip the already shaky safety nets from those lowest on the totem pole....

People are stupid, and cruel.  He's making sure you'll have a societal breakdown when all of that is done.  Hope none of his stupid cuts get passed and his budget clusterfuck gets shut down.....

Grow the fuck up people.


Electoral College - One of the US Presidential Election's major worsening problems

excerpt from a lecture I did on Facebook about the Electoral College.....

" it's part of the election process which can be one of the most easiest gamed, a 2017 study said in present day US with population outlays as they are, one can win the popular vote by OVER 20 MILLION and still lose the general election because of the EC process. While it served it's purpose in a young country with partisan lines flowing along population density centers (such as larger cities), in today's US the use of the EC process as given results in: a). spending on advertising and rallys often overshadowing platform messaging display an out-of-balance relevance leading to a "sound-bite" type of campaign style developed over two hundred years of need for early "battle ground state" victories necessitated by the misnomer that those who win big electoral points early on generally win (they do 2/3rds of the time, it is a misnomer because those states are less than one third of the 50 states - making it a type of illusion), b). the guaranteeing no third party will ever win the Presidency unless that party outspends by some estimates the combined amount BOTH other parties spend, times two and as I mentioned c). the disassociation of actual national choice as to President by allowing certain regions of the country to matter more (which the EC was in part supposed to help stop, and did for well over 150+ years, but now does just the opposite) than others and the votes of those who live there counting MORE than the votes of people living elsewhere. That's not all, but those are three very important things. It is an outdated and antiquated process, but it does show an early weakness in a representative type government over a true democracy, where in a republic by representation (US Federal Style Of G) your own choices are lessened by having the few speak for the many, leading to our current dysfunctional political state where one (your rep) speaks for many, which is a fantasy, even in a majority constituency there shall be a large amount of people when population levels are in the 10's of millions up overall nationally who's wants and needs are thrown away by the adherence of their "representative" to party line. No where and at no time in my lifetime has the breakdown of my expressions being put forth by my representatives as to governing been as disparaging as now. The EC is not one of your election processes strengths, it WAS, a very long time ago, now it is one of it's greatest weaknesses. All this falls on death ears as long as your candidate wins by the EC process (as Daddy Donnie did), but let it be candidates you despise win by the process for extended periods you may come to see the EC's virtues much less than you do now. Something else which is almost comical, more candidates call for ending the EC UNTIL it helps them win, then, not one of them continues to say it's gotta go. Kinda the US way over all, if it works for you fine, if it doesn't, not so much.....the left is not wrong, and "right" candidates disparage the EC process when their party is not in power in the election as much, sometimes more...but, it is true "righties" prefer the process more, because it is easier for monied candidates appealing to far less people to win the elections. At 20 million more votes in the general election and you lose, you can bestow all the praise on the EC you want, if it gets to that it's a fraudulent election, and honestly at five million, definitely at 10 it is. A process built on calculations picks your winner, not the choice of the majority of the people. You're not far from that....."


Review: Suicide Generation - Prisoner Of Love

With a strong detroit punk sound via London UK, Suicide Generation brings it steaming hot to the table, primed, full of energy & hubris.  The three tracks I got from Dirty Water Records off Prisoner Of Love all roar with ease of intensity. While not lacking in any real capacity there is a yet yearning for something, but that's irrelevant, as the echo chamber sings that trademark sound. Here then is the cold of the barren blade silent against the waist band, sharpened to a fine hone all about a glistening of raw energy, deeply held tight by the power of eternal night. Sweaty skin bleeding through leather till it all meshes into one singularity poised to blow all to hell.  Like a caged tiger, ready to strike, to devour, to rip your face off.  This is Suicide Generation, Prisoner Of Love.

Review: Leafy - Somebody

Nice feel; sparse but interwoven. Intersecting base time with atmospheric heights. There is a current of ambient old school, and a force of will bubbling just underneath. Memorizing in the right light.

SnakeRattlers - All Heads Will Roll

SnakeRattlers - All Heads Will Roll

Out for a bit over 6 months at this point, latest from Snakerattlers is all wrapped up in sparse brick n batter with a side of garage blues integrity. Prefs for me personally would be the instrumentals, as few as they may be. While the vocals fit nicely on top. often how they fit in are rudimentary to the overall vibe of the program.

That said, Aither's Theme, Ooga Booga are top shelf.

Beyond, we have a mixed bag of goodies n' half measures. Similar to staggering while suffocating while reaching for the handle to the oxygen tank, results are typical for seismic breakaways, put to a skip beat and the occasional rave up. All taken in strike 1-2-3 fashion as go-go dancers descend upon the scene; before you realize it you'll join them, spastic responses above toe tapping and head nodding.

All in all, Snakerattlers aren't half bad.
