Rockit (not Herbie Hancock)

1. Metal militia, STAND UP: there can only be maybe six people left who care about Laaz Rockit, but damn, OTD had their '87-or-so albums on Enigma back in high school, and that was OUR SHIT. Pretty sure they were one of those glam bands who hopped on the Bay Area thrash bandwagon two weeks after Master of Puppets came out. And they had that whole Rambo-metal thing going on that was, even in 1987, already way too 1985. But Know Your Enemy and Annihilation Principle was OTD's shit. (Unfortunately, everybody bought it on cassette; can't find mp3s anywhere.) Their "Holiday in Cambodia" cover was pretty good: better than Megadeth's Sex Pistols, at least. ANYHOO, press release from came today saying LAAZ ROCKIT is getting back together for this thing (not on the site yet, but it's official and everything); if we're lucky, they'll tour and hit a New Hampshire strip club in '06 or something. Maybe with these guys? Where's our man Sleazegrinder when we need him?

2. Frances Bean looks a lot like her dad. We've got a pool going over here on how long it takes before her and Coco Gordon Moore start a band.

3. Charms drag Monoman out of his apartment just in time for best Lyres gig in 20 years; Brett Milano posts it here.

TONIGHT: big things going down.

Crash and Burn CD release for The Value of Mistrust. For the drugged-out punk rockers.
- Crash and Burn, Out of Reach. (mp3 via band's site)
- And a couple of old MP3s from album #2 right here.

Gang Gang Dance. For Animal Collective types.

And the thing we'll be at:
