Scrawl Live(s)!

(more pics from the Sudsy's "class reunion" show that went down last April)

Two tracks from Scrawl's Nature Film are up at the Tofu Hut. Sometimes I think about devoting my life to putting out an extensive series of remastered reissues and making sure that all the half-recorded albums and demos that have followed see the light of day. There are worse things I could do and I'm pissed that no one else has done it yet. At the very least, I'll pick up Velvet Hammer as soon as possible and share a few mp3s from Bloodsucker, Travel On Rider and Nature Film with any curious would-be fan who sends me an e-mail. It's a crime that this stuff isn't readily available and that, to the best of my knowledge, Marcy Mays hasn't played outside Ohio in years. They even have to use a drum machine now! It's not right.

Should I spend my adulthood trying to bring attention to forgotten artists (screw money) or wryly commenting on popular nonsense (money please thank you)? Choices. Maybe I can try to do both for a few years before I'm finally drawn into the seductive world of competitive pumpkin farming like Jim Martin of Faith No More.

I can't figure out how to fix my permalinks for the life of me. This may require a drastic html overhaul. I guess I should be glad, as it's distracting me from repeatedly checking to see if Pazz'n'Jop is up yet. Merry rockcrit-mas!
