It List: Thursday



Human Eye/Silver Shampoo/Orange Coax/Girlfren/Daniel Bass (715 Panhandle): Um, yes. Very solid show all the way through. I sat down and listened to Orange Coax for the first time several days ago (the group features members of Koji Kondo, PS), and it was honestly one of the most exciting, uh, local music moments that I've had in a while. Apparently, the band Aids Wolf agrees with me-- they left a comment on the groups's Myspace page praising their songs, and Orange Coax, or the "OC" as I like to call them (don't call it that), will be opening for the group when they venture back to Dallas next month. And while you're at it, check out Austin's Girlfren... you'll thank me. Human Eye, meanwhile, sounds like some strange mixtures between The Stranglers, Dead Boys and Iggy Pop's early solo stuff, and Silver Shampoo sort of have a Siltbreeze kinda thing happening, but are in no way derivative of that label. Great stuff.

Murder by Death/Will Whitmore/J. Roddy Walston and the Business (Rubber Gloves): If you ever wondered what it would sound like if the dude from the Cult fronted a Counting Crows cover band featuring members of Alice In Chains....

Danzig/Dimmu Borgir/Moonspell/Winds of Plague/Skeletonwitch (Palladium Ballroom): Samhain reunion please?

80's Night with DJG (Hailey's): Tonight will be a Halloween party, of course.

Matthew and the Arrogant Sea/Eaton Lake Tonics/New Science Projects(Lola's): We have a copy of MATAS's latest record, and we'll probably share our thoughts on it some time soon... there's a lot of "next big thing" talk concerning these guys amongst members of the local trad media right now, and I hope for the sake of the band that it doesn't kill their career before it even really starts.

That RGRS show description sounds lifted directly from one of my many reoccurring nightmares.

MATAS are a really great band if you are into that kind of music, which luckily I am so I catch them as often as I can. If you are are not then you should probably listen to Mastodon or something instead.

matas is the stuff of greatness. they will invent and invent, and borrow when necessary, so that the thing borrowed, changes, and is added to the new. it has always gone on in this way. keep producing, boys. you have loads of people in your corner.

Yeah, that was harsh. Carter was a genius. Corby, however, is an idiot.

What a terribly inaccurate description of Murder by Death's sound.

This is the great music writing and music knowledge people claim exist here?
