nuclear rabbit - intestinal fortitude

label: self-released
released: 1998

down yonder in the THE PUNK SOUNDTRACK comments section someone had asked if'n there were any more nuclear rabbit.

of course there is.
and now you can have some more.
a taste.

sometimes around the SGM you get what you ask for.
and sometimes things that you don't ask for.
here's our card.
take it to the clinic downtown.
they'll give you a special rate.

i'd first discovered nuclear rabbit on my nightly raids of
you remember that place,yeah?
the early 00s were a wondrous time.

what can be said about some nuclear rabbit.....
the first thing that'll come to mind is "hey. these here fellers like them some mr. bungle."
that sort of thing is inevitable here.
but that's ok.
this is more SELF-TITLED mr. bungle than DISCO VOLANTE mr. bungle.
but still mr. bungle-like nonetheless.
mr. bungle.

also: their bass player is a madman. his name is jean baudin. youtube him sometime. like you have anything else going on.

melvins - singles 1-12

label: amphetamine reptile
released: 1997

once upon a time i'd witnessed the melvins play at an ozzfest.
the year was 1998.
the place was alpine valley located in east troy,wisconsin.
the second stage.

that day i'd seen bands with names like:
tool (which is why a band like the melvins were even playing something like this in the first place)
system of a down
monster voodoo machine

but the one thing that sticks out in my head about the entire day is the 30 minutes the melvins were onstage.

i don't remember who played before them.
but folks weren't happy to see some guy with that hair standing in front of them.

"get the fuck off the stage!"
"you fucking suck!"
"who the fuck is this?"
"blah blah blah."

they spent the entire time playing "boris" (and only "boris") and mocking the audience.
it was fucking glorious.

that was a good story,grampa.
how did you even get out of the basement in the first place?
we have company coming over.
and you remember what happened the last time,yeah?
the carpet needed to be replaced.

i'm just going to assume that you know the story behind this here business.

the cliff notes version:
the band released a single per month for a year.
hence the 1-12.
and this combines everything.
amphetamine reptile did all of this for you,damien.*

*=and for all of you other folks as well.


old wounds - terror eyes

label: self-released
released: 2011

a little bit of (the) melvins.
a little bit of eyehategod.
a little bit of botch.
a little bit of the sludgy side of black flag.

combatwoundedveteran - i know a girl who develops crime scene photos

label: no idea records
released: 1999

once upon a time back in the early part of the 00s i lived in florida.
a place just outside of tampa called brandon.
it wasn't too bad
i'd always go to shows in ybor city.
and there was a record store down the street from where i lived called sound idea.

sound idea would always have shows in the back room.
and it was a very very small back room.
you ever been to a show inside of a broom closet before?
to be fair it was the size of 2 broom closets.
maybe it was 3.

the owner of the establishment was named bob.
he had also ran a record label called burrito records.
he had also fronted a band called murder-suicide pact.

they had a mixtape system.
you made one and dropped it into a box and took one out.

anytime i had spare change i was roaming the store.

sound idea turned me onto a few bands.
bands with names like:
scrotum grinder
roach motel
failure face
hated youth
man is the bastard
cream abdul babar
charles bronson
the reckless deerhunters

and this here band.
this band called combatwoundedveteran.

what can be said about combatwoundedveteran?
what can be said about this album?

do you dig bands like the locust?
do you dig record labels like slap-a-ham?
do you dig any of the bands mentioned up yonder?

as for the album: do you need a soundtrack for your next 20 minutes?
because now you have it.
use it wisely.


hopesfall - the satellite years

label: trustkill records
released: 2002

sometimes there's an album that just finds its way into your psyche.
you'll just be sitting there and BAM! are you today? remember me?
and that's what the album's closer "the bending" is like for me.

i'm not even really sure how i came around to finding out about hopesfall.
it was probably via some random sampler i'd discovered somewhere.
used cd stores were the best,weren't they?

i suppose this could count as a re-post that no one asked for as i'd originally posted it back in 2012.
you're welcome.

if'n you're a fan of cave in's JUPITER or between the buried and me's THE SILENT CIRCUS you can make room on that "hey! you got melody in my hardcore! you got hardcore in my melody!" shelf you have in your room for this right here.
