i can tell by the t-shirt that you're wearing that you enjoy a good cover band.
beloitster cult.
that's fun.
so maybe you could take some liking in this as well.
there's a band called beat happening.
the music they make sounds as if it could've been recorded in a bedroom.
not like the sort of beating that is happening in your bedroom....
you don't think your mother and i know what's going on in there?
does one really need that many issues of national geographic?
and what about those catalogs?
you know the ones i'm talking about.
you wouldn't look good in those sorts of bras and you know it.
but what do i care,right?
i just have to sleep on the other side of the wall from you is all.
you're the reason the dog left home.

but i'm getting away from my point....

beat happening.
they're from olympia,wa.
there are other places in that state that aren't seattle.
don't argue with me.
the band's singer runs the label K records.
what do you mean "what are records?!"
y'know even though i'm your father i'm pretty sure that you were adopted.
what we have here are some bands showing their appreciation of beat happening.
not those beat happenings.

will haven - el diablo

released: 1997
label: crisis records / revelation records

"why is will haven so awesome?"
"because they released EL DIABLO."

that was an actual coversation between two actual people.
i was the one that deemed both the band and album as "awesome".
i'd say that this album is as close to nu metal as any fan of deadguy or neurosis (who they've toured with) might get.
i say "nu metal" because it has the familiar leanings of downtuned bass and screamed vocals.
also: they're bestest pals with the deftones.
you could almost say that this is will haven's ADRENALINE.
this is some grinding sludge.
and speaking of grinding sludge: you should also check out the band the abominable iron sloth as they've taken the will haven formula and slowed it down and mde it even more grindy and sludgey and they share 2 members of will haven (drummer mitch wheeler and guitarist jeff irwin) and 2 ex-members of will haven (bass player mike martin and guitarist cayle hunter).
so yeah.
this album is just a good time.
and remember: we don't have to take our clothes off to have a good time.


voivod - dimension hatross demo

released: 1987
label: self-released

ah,those kooky wacky canucks.
canada's metallica (except they've remained consistent).
what more can i say about them?
most of you probably didn't make it past the "canada's metallica" statement.
are you seething?
i meant no disrespect by it.
and i did say that they've stayed consistent.
i even enjoy ANGEL RAT.
and then there's the rarely talked about NEGATRON album (aka their pantera album).
i've been a fan ever since my first hearing of the NOTHINGFACE album.
what more do you want from me?
i can never win with you.
i don't even know why we hang out.
yes i do.
but i'm not going to tell you.

released: 1990
label: glitterhouse records

i like to go back in time via the calendar off to the left  just to take a look at things. to relive memories. to see if any of the food i left behind has been touched. and then the next thing i know i come to in a ditch next to a cornfield wearing only my underpants and i have a headache and i stink of sweat and stale beer (which is weird because i don't even like beer). it's always a different cornfield. and let me tell ya,kids....there's a difference between "coming to" and "waking up".

and then sometimes i come across something that was posted and its time had run out and some folks would like a chance to snag it up again. so that's what this is,folks. snag.

nirvana - singles

released: 1995
label: geffen records

once upon a time there was a band called nirvana (or nirvarna depending on who you talk to). no one really knows where they came from. rumor has it they just walked out of the woods somewhere in the pacific northwest and they continued to walk until they came upon a body of water where they had to stop as none of them were the best swimmers and they only had one pair of floaties. so as a sign of fellowship they destroyed the floaties and decided to set up shop near the water. at first it was just a shanty town. then a village. no one could think of a name for this destination until one day two others appeared from out of the woods. one of the men was tall and lanky and had the last name of a body part. his companion had hair that appeared to be made out of steel wool and he rarely talked but when he did it didn't seem to make sense to the others ("like stee. moanin' ludlow.). these two spent a week at the encampment and as they were leaving the tall lanky fellow yelled out "see ya around!" before disappearing back into the trees. the three looked confused. "what's a seattle?" one of them said.

and the rest is history.
the original three started a band a called it nirvana.
they released some music.
and this is some of that music.

1 - smells like teen spirit (edit)
2 - even in his youth
3 - aneurysm

1 - come as you are
2 - endless,nameless
3 - school (live)*

v/a - three's company: geek / seaweed / superchunk

released: 1990
label: simple machines/leopard gecko records/merge records

you've watched THREE'S COMPANY before,yeah?
of course you have.
what else are you going to be doing at 2:00am on a wednesday?
my favorite episode is the one with the misunderstanding.
you've never seen that one?
i don't really like the spin-offs all that much though....
there was just something lacking.
i don't know.
i guess that it can't be good all the time.

this was a 7" that was released by the band's respective labels when they'd toured together back in the summer of 1990 (the WET BEHIND THE EARS tour).
i'm sure that you were a little (alot) wet behind the ears once upon a time (now).
you don't know what that means?
it means "one that likes to take showers in bath houses".
just don't run into mr. roper while leaving there.
oh the shenanigans that will transpire!

deadguy - i know your tragedy

released: 2000
label: hawthorne street records

for those that don't already know: this isn't the tim singer version of the band. but that's ok. this deadguy is better than no deadguy. right? ok then. not to worry though. mr. singer shows up on the last song. it's a black sabbath cover that was supposed to be used for the IN THESE BLACK DAYS tribute(s) but wasn't for whatever reason.

the rest of the album is one of the last shows the band played at cbgbs before calling it a day.

so yeah.
that just about sums it up,folks.
seeing as how we have time before my parents pick me you wanna wrassle or something?


fudge tunnel - in a word

released: 1995
label: earache

once upon a time i had a friend that was all into the punk rock. the dead kennedys and 88 fingers louie and hot water music and and nofx and the like. this friend's mom (who was quite the looker by the way) drove a jaguar and he was allowed to use it from time to time. this jaguar had a 6 disc cd player (that sat in the trunk) and sometimes i was allowed to throw in a cd....just as long as it wasn't any of that "hate rock shit that i listened to". on this particular day we'd taken a ride to the mall in the next town over (in the jag of course. what would've normally taken us about a half an hour took us 15 minutes. good times.). i ended up finding a copy of fudge tunnel's CREEP DIETS album at the disc jockey and i talked him into playing it on the rise home. so were headed home and about a minute into the song "grey"  he's all like "i said none of that hate rock stuff!" and then switched the cd.....

fast forward about 3 years and i'm walking home with my discman on and this car drives by and then comes a stop. so i stopped. the car then took off around the corner and i took off my headphones and was getting ready to set the discman on the ground as i thought a fight was coming my way (yeah. there were some folks around town that really weren't a fan. believe it or not). so the car comes back around and it's the friend with some of his friends. i hadn't seen him for a couple of years. the funny thing about that meeting was the fact that he was wearing a slayer t-shirt and there was something metal being played on the car stereo.

"where is this going,grampa? i have things to do. i have to be behind the bakery for when they throw the day old doughnuts away,bro. come on!"

the end.
i hope you choke on a bavarian cream doughnut.
and i hope that right before you die someone tells you that it's not bavarian cream.
go on now!

so what this here thing is is a compilation of some peel sessions the band played as well as some live stuff and some covers and such.
enjoy you some fudge tunnel,kids.
