This might just be
this year’s most interesting compilation:
On the bonus-CD you will find such cool projects as: C.Aarmé with the
help of At The Gates and Entombed members on a new C.Aarmé track, Nine with vocalist(s)
from Haunted doing ”United Forces” by S.O.D., Division Of Laura Lee and Ebbot from
Soundtrack Of Our Lives punking up Minor Threat, Millencolin doing an Asta Kask cover
with Miezko from Nasum on guest-vocals, and Turbonegro featuring Brody Dalle from
The Distillers on vocals covering Agent Orange.
Not out until August, though.
Re: my quest
for good music feeds: While browsing the RSS
feeds at NewsIsFree I noticed that Punknews.org now
has a RSS feed. It’s not advertised
anywhere on the front page, but still.
Well, I went to the Close-Up Made Me Do It finale, but only got to the show just in
time for Entombed. Their set was as solid as could have been expected, even though
it wasn’t quite as amazing as their September show in Stockholm. I hadn’t seen Turbonegro
since just after the release of ”Ass Cobra”, when they played Kafé 44. The fan base
has grown quite a bit since then… It was a good show as well, although the sound
could have been better at times, particularly Hanks between-the-songs commentary.
Today and tomorrow I will NOT be attending the very special Moneybrother christmas
shows at Debaser, as I found out about them too late
(all tickets are sold out). Damn!
This really sucks.
I’ve been looking forward to the ”Close-Up
made us do it” tour finale in Stockholm because it had such an insanely good lineup
(Raised Fist, Disfear, Entombed and Turbonegro).
A while ago it was announced that Raised Fist would cancel the tour and Nine would
take their place. Since Raised Fist’s ”Dedication” was possibly the best record released
under 2002, and I had heard much about their insane live shows, I was not too pleased.
However, Nine has some decent songs and are a good live act as well, so it wasn’t
Now, Nine cancels as well, due to a planning fuckup. What the hell?! RF canceled because
their singer got vocal cord inflammation (is that the proper english term? ”stämbandsinflammation”)
which I can sort of understand, but canceling due to bad planning? Come on!
Also, due to schedule conflicts I will most likely miss Disfear, so I’ll probably
end up just seeing Entombed and Turbonegro. However, as I’m getting older I find it
harder and harder to enjoy really long show. Maybe it’s all for the best, just two
intense shows with two really really good bands.
