Big pimpin

1. We've really been digging how Fuzzy turned into a yelpy stoner-punk band. Or at least some of them did. Check it: tonight their not-so-new-anymore band Count Me Outs are on a bill with some other of their (and our) favorite yelpy stoner-punk/trash-rock bands: to wit, Providence's Black Clouds and the Radar Eyes/Tunnel of Love collabo Ghetto Fighters.

LISTEN: Count Me Outs, "Clockwise" (mp3)
LISTEN: Black Clouds, "The Thing from Beyond" (mp3, left-click to download from MySpace)

2. The Los Angeles experimental-punk label Deathbomb Arc recently put out a noise-band tribute to the Cash Money roster, which means, if nothing else, they'd be a perfect fit for Boston's DIY art-rap duo BIG DIGITS. The label thought so too: the next edition of DBA's old-school tape club (think singles club, only on cassette) features a new Big Digits number, with guest vocals by Squids drummer Sonia Brenner. TD and Mac (in photo) debut the song at Mass Art on a bill with the Twisted Village noise band Heathen Shame, Avril-covering electro-spazz fiend Captain Ahab, and DBA honcho Brian Miller's band Rose for Bohdan. That's at 621 Huntington Ave, Room N181, Boston. Show info here.

LISTEN: Rose for Bohdan, "Big Pimpin" (mp3)
LISTEN: Captain Ahab, "Sk8er Boi" (mp3)
LISTEN: Big Digits, "Dance Casino" (mp3)

3. East Coast experimental-rock heroes NEED NEW BODY function like a human sequencer: the members build peculiar dance music by recontextualizing recognizable spare parts, from Waits-ian junk blues and spy themes to Devo-ish new wave, Dadaist poetry, free jazz, hip-hop, and show tunes. Then they give the detritus a swift kick in the rhythm section. Their UFO (File 13) plays like the art-spazz mix tape of the year. They're at the Midway Café, 3496 Washington St, Jamaica Plain 617.524.9038.

LISTEN: Need New Body, "Tittiepop" (mp3)
