It List: Tuesday


Goblin Cock/Blood OV/Warship (The Loft): A word of caution about the headliners: Yes, they are a real metal band. However, they do play in a gimmicky, side-project, indie rock, joke-band called Pinback, complete with car commercial keyboard melodies and lyrics focusing on being upset about stuff.

What's not a joke is local doom/drone metal group, Blood OV, who have a captivating track on Myspace that is so long and drawn out, it had to be sequenced in multiple parts. The music is so painfully slow, you'll be inching forward in anticipation of each thud and strike. An excellent use of space and volume that make for an overall frightening listening experience.

Legendary Shack Shakers (Pontiac Garage/House Of Blues): Lead Shack Shaker, J.D. Wilkes, is the man behind the acclaimed documentary , "Seven Signs," a film focusing on music and culture in the Deep South. The movie looks very interesting and I would honestly rather go to a screening of "Seven Signs" than watch another psycho-billy band, however they're better than most from what I've heard.

Duane Denison has been playing with this group of late, and I'm just glad that The Jesus Lizard has reformed. I'm sure that playing with groups like Tomahawk and artists like Hank III are fun and pay well, but his music with TJL is on another level of innovation and artfulness that has never been quite as striking or obvious in his other work since, most likely due to the quality of his collaborators.

Where does Dwight fit into all this? Is he a closet Pinback pinhead, or is he more of just a straight up dood bro who runs a beet farm and writes crap on a crutch for some indie hipster bloooog?

jesus lizard is alright. I mean it can get pretty tiresome to listen to it too often. The mood just doesn't suit me. Maybe I'm not angry enough?

The Jesus Lizard is one of the best live bands ive ever seen, i love thier music and have every four-letter-titled-album they put out. David Yow is the kind of front man live that is only equaled by maybe Shannon Selberg, Ami Shalev and David Lee Roth. There is an awesome clip on youtube of a show i attended at the Orbit room, where some dumb douchecock nailed Yow in the face with a bottle, Yow hit the floor, got up dazed and bleeding,and after the bass player grabbed the douchenozzle and kicked him out of the show, they picked right up in the song where they left off.
