More quittings & Fests.

June 12th, 2005

Louisville’s pop-punkers Pocketbomb are officially calling it quits. No word on why their “dance party” is ending, but they are playing the 2 shows listed on the shows page, taking a break to relearn all the old songs not on their new record (Intentions) and playing one last show in late summer/early fall.
Tony Ash has reportedly left Coliseum, but I haven’t talked to anyone in the band, so don’t quote me on it (although I know you will. fuckers).

Metroschifter is still broken up. But you can get old shirts from Monkeydrive.

In with the old/new, out with the new/old…

June 2nd, 2005

If word hasn’t reached your ears yet, NRI (aka Nowledge Related Injury) has broken up. So don’t expect to see them anymore. They broke up because Jake took a hatchet to the drummer’s arm during an extreme wrestling match. ok, that’s not true, but they are broken up.
And… keep an eye out for the new (well kinda) band TEARS TO GLORY. Have you been around long enough to remember Armbar? Well, if you were and you liked ’em, shit yourself silly over TTG. Not around that long? If you are interested by aa heavy, dual vocalist band and you are kinda into stuff like…. Terror (maybe), then you can shit your britches over it too. They’re looking for shows now, hit the message board for contact info.

A note from J. Brightskull….

May 22nd, 2005

Thrown Brick Records is dead, long live
BRIGHTSKULL RECORDS. ( and are up. In the wake of
this reorganization, Ayin are touring the northeast in
June in support of “nothing islands”. Ayin is going
out again with In Tongues in August (yes, In Tongues
is gearing to actually play out!). Pocket Bomb full
length CD out at the end of may. Lastly, the Kodan
Armada/Montcalm split 7″ has been repressed one last
time and is now available, a portion of the proceeds
benefit Adele Colins. And i’m spent.

New songs, new records, new, new, nudes… er, nevermind that last one.

*Coliseum’s new EP – GODDAMNAGE – is out today on Manic Ride records. It will be available at the show tonight, but I don’t know when Ear X-Tacy will have it.
*No Where Fast has new songs up on their myspace at so go and check it out. They will be touring with TastyFace soon. I saw the tour poster by Typocracy (MGL).. pretty sweet.
*Redhanded will be coming back this summer… look for them at Headliner’s with Dead City Rejects in June. Check the shows page for up-to-date info.
*Lord’sSwords” LP still isn’t out.
*Thommy Brown (Automatic, Enkindel/The Enkindels/BTGOG/more), Matt Weider (Mouthpiece/Kiwi/Automatic/The Enkindels/more), and Jeff Drake (Squarewell/My Life Denial) have started not one, but two new bands to be on the lookout for.. one is a “stoner rock” (TB’s words) band named GET DEAD, and the other is a more traditional hardcore band with no name. Get ready, this shit is sure to be off the proverbial hook.
*Straight Laced has lost their drummer. Graham moved from guitar to the drums to cover, but I’m sure they’re looking for someone to take the throne from him. Preferably someone that knows something about I dunno.. skinhead and mod stuff or something. They have also recently been picked up by Sta-Press Records, and will be releasing a full-length recorded with Kevin Ratterman soon.
*The Kinghorse tribute page has been updated with VIDEOS!. Yup.
* t-shirts should be in soon and ready for the Louisville Hardcore Cookout/Group Photo (hopefully). Everyone should come out to Hogan’s Fountain on May 21st and hang out around 2pm.. Skins, Punks, Goths, “normal” dudes, hardcores, fat kids, skinny kids, emos, whatever. Check for details on ye olde messageboard.
