Plastic Little T Shirts Now Available

From Mr. Bombadillo aka Nobodys Child:
Plastic Little T-Shirts are now for sale in my ebay store. I made them, there are only a few left. Go get your grandma a present she'll never understand, but think is ooooh sooooo pretty. Maybe she might even put you back in the trust fund, because yes, these shirts are magical and can erase racism. So, for now on, whenever she dons one of these magical shirts, she'll totally accept the fact that you like to put your genitals together with those of "lesser" or "oppressive" races. Thanks to me, the world is now a better place.... you're welcome.

What It Do

This sucks, I have to do this by memory since myspace bulletins are down. Whatever will I do? Lots of updates? Eh, I got the good ones memorized.

Did I miss anything?

Throwback Fridays - Regulate

Hip hop classic.

Chromeo - Tenderoni

Official video for Chromeo-o-o's Tenderoni. More vocoder please

Two bonus tracks:
Chromeo check for more dates on their tour

When crazy people grow up....

Yo so I thought I would write an update from that VIP party with Gravy Train and my new favorite no wave band straight out of Philly - GANG. They came on around 8:30 to a semi packed room but by the time their second song pumped in all the kids outside rushed in to get down. I got up close to the stage with this dude in bathrobe who looked like he seriously did just get of the R5. Regardless Gang killed it with their witty banter, blazing hot attire, and over all "fucking shit up" attitude. Like seriously I think what is so captivating about these girls is they act like they are gonna beat the shit out of you and like drag you by your hair to South Philly, then put you on a spaceship and fly your ass to Pluto and lock you in basement and only let you out when they wanna make out with you. I was really feeling it on so many levels, plus they got some dope dance moves and they rock glocks (no uffie). Below you can find my favorite song from them plus this really boss b-52's cover when like the b-52's where dope and no wave and like about fucking with you and having beehives and playing organs and not love shacking it up with VH1.
Yo then my boys (editor: pause), VIP came on stage. Of course they was on some drama shit that night, but I loved it. Johnny had some crazy eye costume on that was kinda all over the place. They did Mad Coke and then like 4 new tracks that I hadn't heard before. Julian Process was kicking it in the back bringing back the sexy DJ for real. The highlight from VIP was Johnny getting on a speaker pulling off his pants and letting the crowd inspect his but walls... they was dirty. Regardless they had this joint that was a reworking of that song Imagination off the Pink Skull 12" from a couple of years back that I was feeling. Side note some dude in the crowd had a shirt that said "I Ain't down with that brown" what a freaking classy shirt. I wouldn't have even thought to make that shit.

Gravy Train, yikes what happened? Shit I think they just grew up. Like two years ago they were like 22 and wanted to get wasted, run around stage naked, play awesome new wave songs about titties and fucking dudes. Now they are like, we is 24 and are taking our shit seriously, still thick and are gonna show off our boobs, rock the shit out of some fishnets put our record out on some obscure label out of Mississippi that doesn’t have the distro like Kill Rock Stars. Shit they got some myspace fucking love though. I had no idea that this shit is like on and poppin like that on myspace. I need to step my under 18 fringe music group knowledge up. The singer started calling out all these songs from their myspace page and the kids were going nuts for that shit. I guess it was an all ages show which I really like since its kinda cool to see girls who are 17 who need attention strip down to their underwear and dance around in front of you while you drink Old English pounders. Yo also big shouts out to that girl who had the spider webs on her clavicles that had pink in them. I was like you are such a punk rock chick. (p.s. you just really ruined any chances for you to wear low blouse at work in the future, like that is some serious serious bad life choices you just made, but fuck it I love it, shit makes girls so much hotter, yo I wish I could go into the future and just see some of these people, like I bet that girl is going to be a therapist or some shit).

But on some other shit they was jamming for a good 45 mins and had the whole place going ballistic so I can't really hate. I mean shit I had a good ass time and would definitely see them again. They also did a track with VIP that was pretty funny since they all got in a line and did the can can dance. Also some dude in the crowd grabbed at the girl Junx costume and ripped it and then some douche in the crowd (wearing matching dayglo hat and wife beater, yes ebay) went back stage and freaking sewed the shit while gravy train kept doing there show. Like that is so not punk rock, or wait is that gay punk? Or like if your gay and you like punk rock is that why you like No Wave? Oh shit.

(Baltimore update soonish, aka Baltimore Hipsters are so much more core then South Philly hipsters, or they just have worse teeth.)

Interview with Ian Meyer

Drink Moloko just posted an interview with Ian Meyer. You may know of Ian from his websites based at Crewcial.org, or you may know him as the partyographer for the Rub, White Tees (above), or as nerd nerd nerd. Ian's manifesto, if you will, mirrors mine when taking pictures at parties and my initial start in photography. All I need now is to stop dancing so I can bring out a digital SLR.

Copy written by none other than Jayson Scott "Pack of Rats" Musson:

Schooly D on MySpace

Frankie Valli & Four Seas - Beggin (Pilooski Reedit)

This has been out for a bit but just found the video and here is an unofficial videom.

We're VIP starting controversy

Man I have been pretty quiet up on this spot recently cause my boss audited my computer for my internet usage at work and shit was kinda out of control. Basically the SDP banned this website but during my lunch I walk home and sometimes post shit on here or ya know watch Maury.
On the real, Mother Fucking VIP is gonna be playing tonight with Gravy Train. Okay last time I saw this show these two people were playing together and shit was pretty bonkers. It was at the Northstar bar and VIP gets on stage and the first song they do is really crazy speed up maimi bass car track. Like seriously it was a minute and a half. The dude and chick in the band screamed three words over and over in the mic and that was it. After that they went into how back stage with VIP they were all drinking and almost had sex with each other. So they do some more songs and then the guitarist starts dancing around and taking of his clothes. Then all of a sudden dude is naked running around the stage. Shit was fucking epic. He made me want to be gay for the night. They finish and jump into the crowd and then VIP comes on.
Now I am such a fucking VIP fan. This was the first time I saw them live but this is how they started.
"Hey Philly, this song is for all the haters, Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh." After that I have been such a fan of these dudes. I think I even wrote about this shit on my old blog (RIP, sike, bloggin is for yuppies, which I was at the time i might add). VIP moved to New York and I hoped that didn't fuck up there style. Remember when Johnny used to have the longest mullet and was the door greeter at Urban. That was the best seeing them live then seeing that dude serve you coffee at Columb.
Moral of this story is that I own a pair of pink fruit of the looms that say "I heart Gravy Train" and the VIP 12" that says "Dear Casi, Keep your butt walls clean" (on some other shit I am sure they made that shit up about Van Halen contacting them, anyways fuck Van Halen, salty bitches). Oh snap I just realized I think my old girlfriend kept the underwear in our breakup. I should text her and get them shits back. Nothing better then a fat drunk dude in pink underwear that are to small for him standing next to you at a show.
Oh yeah and these people are playing again tonight with Gang who I am really excited to see live. I think the one chick from Gravy Train is a lesbian and I am gonna holler at her tonight like, girl you need the remix that means penis, just slip it in like a tampon but it got a man on the end. (hope the tour is going well guys)

New RVNG T's

Brand new shirts from the RVNG crew. This is only the third shirt produced and will likely sell out quickly at $20 including shipping.
We've made a new Rvng t-shirt. You may or may not remember the Get Rad t-shirts or Mutated Men before those but they were really fucking "special". These are no exception.

The design (by Kevin, durrr) is a loose spin on the rigid "R" logo that was stamped on our foreheads fresh from the conceptual womb. It's also an homage to the budget record label logos that grace some of our favorite 7"s and 12"s. It's also fucking fresh and we don't have to sell it to you, dude. Fuck authority.

These are printed on American Apparel Poly-Cotton Short Sleeve Crew Neck t-shirts.
Pick yours up now from IGetRvng.com

Bat For Lashes - Whats A Girl To Do

If nothing else watch this video for the video itself. Key points from the MySpace page: Influences include David Lynch, Donnie Darko, Virgin Suicides, slowed down hip hop and chamber music. Sounds like: halloween when you're small, dreaming by the sea, pine trees, UFO's, broken heart, harpsichords, dark nightime lovemaking. After watching the video I think it all makes sense. I actually really enjoy this song. It reminded me of Incense and Peppermints for some reason, or something very similar. Comparing them afterwards doesn't make as much sense as it did while watching.

  • Jayson Musson and Heather Rae art opening at Topstitch (311 Market Street)

Adrien Reju vs Micky Avon

Not sure if you guys just read that Paper Street (holy shit Dj Contra at Mojito also this city is getting some hot dj talent this weekend) blast but freaking Micky Avalon is playing from 9:00 to 9:45 sharp. Like WHOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. So what that really means is that from 10:00 to 10:45 Micky Avalon will be preforming and why would you see that when you could see Philly's home grown folk mistress Adrien Reju playing some solo cuts at the Tin Angel. I have been pluggin this girl for a little bit but I really like her style and sounds. Plus that whole singer song writer shit is so hot in the streets these days. So get over to the Tin Angel for killer folk tracks, then we can all ride our one speeds to the Troc in a pseudo biker gang flock for Flossy D and Chromeo. Actually a folk cover of Needy Girl would be so next level.
