To make up for the last few weeks of no MP3s, I’m going to help educate Manny. He says he’s never heard Fugazi, so here are two of my favorite Fugazi songs.
The first is from their Repeater + 3 Songs album and is probably my favorite of their songs. The second is from 13 Songs. If you haven’t heard them, then listen. If you have heard them, listen anyway.
Addendum: Thanks Ray for catching that.
I know I posted ‘em just a few weeks ago. Their new album came out this past week, though, so I wanted to let you guys hear some of it. I actually got it in the mail one day early. It’s a good, solid album. I like their old stuff better, but that’s just me. Their new stuff isn’t a straight-out punk, and that’s what makes me feel differently about it. Anyway, give ‘em a listen and then go pick up this album. It’s well worth it, if a little short!
An awesome band that I don’t think is with us any more. That’s always such a tragedy. Anyway, the band is Ozma and these two songs are off of their newest album, Spending Time on the Borderline. They’re an amazing emo-esque band. I say emo-esque because they’re very poppy and fun. Check ‘em out and write your Congress man or woman about reinstating this band.
Here’s some of what you’ve been missing. This nifty British punk band sounds a lot like At the Drive-In and Sparta, so if you like them, check these guys out. I just heard ‘em this week myself, so you’re getting this as fresh as I can give. The band is Hell is for Heroes and the song is Models for the Programme
If you didn’t get to see these guys on Conan O’Brien this past week, you missed a great performance. It’s nice to see an “emo” band that still looks like its punk roots. My Chemical Romance are going to be on a pretty big tour this winter/spring, so if they come near you, get yourself a ticket. But, until then, enjoy You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison
I loved this band back in the day. I heard ‘em first on Punk-O-Rama vol. 3 and they were amazing. This is where emo came from, in part. The lyrics are always very personal with Osker and, though his voice can get annoying, the music feels somehow secondary. They broke up a few years ago, so don’t look for anything new, but they have two albums and they’re both worth having. Enjoy Alright
