The Bags

Thursday night was pretty insane. Check out some of Rob's footage. And speaking (er writing I guess) of Rob, he'll be guest dj'ing along with Andy this week. Dan will be in the week after that.

In high school X was one of my favorite bands. I think I was in ninth grade when my sister's friend Ari first played Los Angeles for us, and since then I have never stopped loving them. Basically if you're a girl growing up in Southern California and you like punk, it's impossible not to be into this band. Read Lee's super-long rant about this over at cookie cutter.

Anyway, X were my first introduction into the Dangerhouse catalog and remain my favorite. Lately though I've been listening to a lot of the Bags. I like to think of the Bags as the snot to X's sass. And you know how much Christa and I love snotty girls... actually I may not have given that rant on this blog, but basically snotty girls are the best.

All Bagged Up is pretty much what it sounds like- it's all of the band's recordings between 1977 & 1980... the Dangerhouse recordings and then a bunch of live stuff, rehearsals, demos, and alternate takes.

The Bags- All Bagged Up

July 22, 2009 (PRDCT #19 with Steve and Liz)

Steve and Liz came in and played some records with me tonight. Steve immediately won my heart when he played Julie Ruin in the first set. Things are really awkward between the two of them now because they got in a big fight and are no longer going to be living together. They will duke it out for Boston punk supremacy on Tuesday- Libyans are playing at PA's with the Shitty Limits, Logic Problem, & Women; Sexual Janitor are playing at Midway Cafe with Preyin Hands, Garbage Strike, & Bloody Gears- it's their demo release! Also, I'm now Sex/Jan's manager.

The Weakerthans

Today has been throwback day... kicked it off with In the Aeroplane over the Sea, did a double dose of Pinkerton, then moved on to a John K. Samson session, Weakerthans followed by Propagandhi. Middle/high school jam session are totally necessary sometimes.

I feel like this might get taken down reasonably quickly since it's a bigger band, but whatever. I don't think Fallow was one of the Weakerthans' most popular albums or anything, but it was the only one I had at the time (because it was the only one my older sister had, and I burned it from her). My most distinct memory of this band is discussing them on the bus to some softball tournament in ninth grade. My friend like Guster, I liked pop punk, this is where we found an overlap. Wow, that sentence is kind of embarrassing. She was a sophomore; at least I was only fourteen.

The Weakerthans- Fallow

Pens/Male Bonding + pixxx

Hung out with Screaming Females last night for their big show at House of Blues with the Dead Weather. It was totally crazy to see them play in such a big place- capacity is supposedly 2400. Anyway, it was sweet, and they get free beer, so now I'm stocked up. The girl in Discount sings for the Dead Weather, and she's a total fucking rock star/diva (not in a good way). That was whack. I wish I could see the Screamales/Shell Shag West Coast tour. Over in Cambridge though getting psyched for Punch/Ampere/Trifle Tower/Dark Forces/L'Antietam on Thursday night and then most likely Harvey Milk on Saturday night. In the future, I will almost for sure be headed down to Richmond for Best Friends Day.

Back to the task at hand... As promised another PVI release. I started to write this at various points over the past month or so, so it's probably kind of all over the place.

Shitty picture of the album art... had another one but my camera broke/didn't back up my old hard drive recently at all. If you want to buy me a new one, get in touch. That would be cool.

Pens play sorta noisy pop... maybe if Skinned Teen (ok maybe I'm just saying this cause they're both English) were really hip 15 years later, slowed down a little bit, and became fuzzier and unintelligible. They might be the hippest of the bunch... doing a big West Coast tour with Graffiti Island and Crocodiles, capping it off with a San Diego show with Wavves & No Age. They're playing at Spaceland in LA, which Matt & I used to think was so cool in high school. It was 21+, and we would always say we were gonna go there for our 21st birthdays. Instead some of us have sisters & friends who hire cross-dressing singing telegrams to sing Beyonce and "Happy Birthday." Anyway, Pens definitely give my favorite side of the split.

They play sorta noisy pop... maybe if Skinned Teen (ok maybe I'm just saying this cause they're both English) were really hip 15 years later, slowed down a little bit, and became fuzzier and unintelligible. Basically I've been listening to a fair amount of old Slampt stuff, and I feel like this is about the closest thing to a lot of that stuff that's around today.

Male Bonding are more like Abe Vigoda or something. Not my thing as much, but still a good time.

I pretty much haven't listened to anything else other than the PS Eliot LP this week. Sorry for the mediocre write-up. I guess you're used to it by now though.

Weekend recap, Hand Jobs update

final flier by Rebecca

This weekend was awesome. I found out on Friday night that Brainless Oneders couldn't play, which obviously was not ideal, but not really that big of a deal. We started really late (and I normally try to run relatively timely punk shows), but oh well, I knew that was going to happen. My camera won't turn on now (probably because of the shit show that ensued- see below, by Jacki), so I don't really have any pictures. Hopefully I will be able to recover them eventually though.

I branded Allison.

The show itself was awesome. It was great to finally get to see PS Eliot play, and I was so psyched that Little Lungs could play too. Everything went really smoothly- a couple nice boys brought vegan cupcakes, a couple other attendees even drove down from Toronto for the show. Thanks all around to those who came, played, helped out with the show, etc.

What followed was definitely one of the most fun nights I've had this summer complete with markers (again see above), quiet dance parties, climbing into windows, and a couple drinks. (hey PSE- I don't think you read this blog, but up the northerners, we totally kicked your asses.)

Since then I've been consistently jamming their LP (put out on the always awesome Salinas Records, who will also be putting out a Hop Along 10" very soon). They've sold out of it already on tour, but you can get it from the label eventually. I've also been getting a heavy dose of the King Everything demo (Katie's solo stuff). I also am currently wearing my brand new PS Eliot shirt, featuring an awesome drawing by Allison.

I also drove down to see them last night in New Haven- Brian put together an awesome show, and it was great to see Dead Uncles again. It was a ton of fun, good to hang out with everyone again, but now I'm exhausted and am going to sleep.


Also, a bit more on Hand Jobs from Claire... those songs from the tape are old and were recorded with their first drummer- they're currently scouting out number four, but she says, they'll "be back making noise come the fall."

Hand Jobs

I ordered the Hand Jobs/Talbot Tagora cassette last winter, and it is perpetually in my tape player. I honestly could not tell you what the Talbot Tagora side is like though (other than based on other stuff of theirs I've heard) because all I listen to is the Hand Jobs side of this tape. I've done hour long drives just pressing rewind each time the four short songs pass.

Lots of attitude, shitty recording... I couldn't ask for much more. They also have a couple live tracks on the Gimme Cooties comp, which is an awesome idea, but the whole recording is pretty terrible (too bad since there's a lot of really great bands on it).

This came out some time last year on what seems like an uber hip London label Paradise Vendors, Inc. that sells out of shit pretty quickly. I'll also post the Pens/Male Bonding split some time soon. This tape and that split are sold out. It sucks to pay shipping from the UK anyway. A couple other upcoming posts were gonna be things I ripped at the station, but then I realized Pukekos had already scooped me on that, so check out the Budget Girls and Bette Davis and the Balconettes over there.

Not really sure what is going on with this band now, but they played a show with General Interest in NYC a few days ago.

Seriously download this tape though because it fucking rules and it's out of print. And, yo Hand Jobs, come play in Boston.
