Limp Wrist - one sided 12"

New(ish) 12" from Limp Wrist. Picked up a limited version of this 12" when they played L.A. at the end of 2008.... I guess they ran some "test presses" for their Japanese tour. Anyways, it was a cool show except for the idiot tossing a bottle at the guitarist and splitting his head open. At least he was cool enough to finish the show.... After the crowd pointed out the moron who threw said bottle it seems they were going to kill him but Martin saved his ass by telling them to not kick his ass and to just throw the fucker out. Very nice of him.

I like this 12" a lot since their new(ish) guitarist seems to be showing off his chops more on these songs (which also sounded really good live). I didn't care too much for the last 7" but something about this 12" stood out to me.... songs are tighter/faster and the guitar playing stands out more. Check it out.

Neurose Urbana - "Vivendo, Sofrendo E Morrendo!" 7"

First 7" from this d-beat/raw punk band from Brazil released in 2000 on a Finnish label. One of my favorite new (-ish) bands from Brazil... wish they would've released more of this quality stuff on vinyl. Just as good as the best stuff from BESTHOVEN but for some reason they never got the hype. They also have a really good 2nd 7" and a so-so (in my opinion.... but I think I need to go back and hear it again) 12" along with lots of demos and some comp appearances.

2. Declinio De Corpos
3. Luxuria Para Os Famintos

The Fastbacks – “… and His Orchestra” LP

Some pop punk from Seattle to offset all the other stuff that's normally posted on here.... I couldn't find a CD download of this so I ripped this for myself mostly. Maybe someone else might be interested in this.... very underrated band in my opinion. One of the few Seattle bands that was there before and after the whole grunge thing blew up after Nirvana but never really got as popular as some of those other (lame) bands. It's funny to hear them talk about the whole "grunge" explosion in the movie "Hype".

They had a few EPs before this but I believe this is their first full-length. All of their albums have at least a few amazing songs... catchy as fuck songs with bubblegum vocals and really cool guitar parts.

1. Seven Days
2. The Light’s On You
3. If You Tried
4. Don’t Cry For Me
5. In The Winter
6.Wrong, Wrong, Wrong
7. K Street
8. You Will Be The One
9. Call It What You Want
10. Set Me Free
11. I Need Some Help

Life - "Master of Darkness" 7"

2nd 7" (still need to find a copy of the first 7"!!!!....) from Life from Japan. Good heavy crusty punk.... also check out the LP here. They've been around a long time and finally released a new 3rd 7" a few months back which I just got the other day but I ain't really digging it. Like this stuff a lot more. Either way, I'd probably go apeshit if I ever got the chance to see them live.
