It List: Thursday 1/18/07

The Chimeneas/Dirty Water Disease/Aunt's Analog/Mom/ Dromez (J & J's Pizza)

Very strong lineup tonight at J & J's Pizza including a couple of bands who have credentials to burn. The shockingly noisy Aunt's Analog are one of the few bands you'll ever hear who have actually accomplished conveying the live nastiness of their music on their profile player. They once opened for Wolf Eyes at the height of that band's hype, much to the dismay of Emo's, and good for them. Aunt's Analog mastermind Matt Lacomette also did time as a member of one of North Texas' all-time great (and greatly overlooked) pop-rock bands, Climate. Also playing is Fort Worth's The Chimeneas, which features members of one of North Texas' all-time great hardcore bands, ...Of Death. The Chimeneas are the polar opposite of that erratically spastic group, and feature a lot more texture and slower rhythms. They lace the spaced-out tempos with guitars drowning in reverb and subtle synth parts. Dirty Water Disease plays a very dark brand of experimental rock music. This would also be a good chance to see what Stonedrangers's been talking about by catching Mom's set.

Lost Generation with Wanz Dover (Fallout Lounge)

Wanz continues to nail it with this excellent idea:

"Really good night planned. A special Alice Coltrane tribute. The new album from The Fall and at 10pm The Can Free Concert movie from 1972. If you ever wanted to know why so many people bow down at the feet of CAN this movie hits it on the button. Guaranteed to blow you away. I also have a bunch of other new stuff to drop on ya. Come drink, Come dance, come geek out Lost Gen style."

I love geeking out. I remember when you could only get that Can performance either with the box set or as a $5 VHS bootleg at RPM Records. Those were different times.

Jucifer/Bowel/Hand Of Onan (Rubber Gloves)

Jucifer is a guy-girl duo known mostly for one thing: putting on one of the loudest shows you'll ever attend in your life. Hand of Onan features the gross-out humor of Denton's Wally Campbell. Wally runs local legend Hot Link Records and the lyrics to his songs would make David Allan Coe blush.

Cartright/Leatherbag/Future Clouds And Radar (The Cavern)

Austin-centric show with Cartright probably being the standout act. The other two groups play mild and inoffensive pop songs. Some of these band-bios are really starting to wear on me. Don't tell me what authors you're influenced by or how you're really into wind-chimes or your mom's pancakes. Just fucking admit you listen to Townes Van Zandt, "Street Legal", and Leonard Cohen way too much. It would make my life just a little easier.

80's Night with DJ G (Hailey's)

It's the man's birthday, so do him a favor and don't make any idiotic requests.

Seen Jucifer a few times- their amp set up is pretty incredible.. what's weird is that they're still not as loud as Notes From Underground. I don't understand it.

Just for the record, there is no way you can listen to Townes Van Zandt "way too much".

I agree, Mom is def. a bit overhyped. If only coz some others (like the Chimeneas) are so underhyped.

I hate all the talk on here about hype, most of you obviously don't even understand what constitutes hype. Is getting mention on a couple of blogs and playing an instore at a record shop considered high profile? fuck guys, bring hype back where it belongs: in the MACROCOSM, not the fucking MICROCOSM

expand yr fucking viewpoint, fucking ants.
