I dreamt that a band was setting up a large classroom for a gig. There were speakers around the entire circumference of the room. Probably for show, I mean who's going to bother plugging all those in? I was getting my camera ready when the band started playing, and fuck me days it's da blacklight config. It was a core 4-piece lineup of Rob, therapist, Ora and some other fucker. The band was spread around the room. I took some photos from near Rob's corner. Then I saw the general manager from my work acting like a school principal and trying to get the crowd to stand in orderly lines (haha did I mention there was a crowd?!?! loal). I defied him somewhat and went to take photos over by therapist. Found he was playing in a buggered old white car while simultaneously revving it to use as a smoke machine. I went looking for the other 2 band members. I think the bassist was playing lying on the floor, while Ora was dancing around on chairs. Then Ora started crowd surfing and got carried past me (and it didn't particularly look like Ora at this point but nevermind), and then the crowd holding him up just dropped him. I bumped into some guy who was supposedly a Punkas user and said "check Punkas for the ending", and I woke up briefly and drifted off again but I didn't manage to continue the story. I just dreamt I got out of bed and found a stereo at home playing the radio, as if someone had bumped the on switch with their leg while enjoying the gig. Which made me think all those speakers at the start were 'borrowed' and Rob was risking 4 years' jail again.

My guess is the dream was telling me not to procrastinate on housework. Crowd dropping Ora Simpson = me dropping the ball on using my Simpson washing machine & dryer. My brain is conspiring against me with the illuminated ones. Blacklight brainwash, real life clothes wash.

i can just imagine the photographer jingling his keys and saying 'rob, Rob! ROB! over here buddy!!'

this was the best shot in an hour, and the cameraman was like, 'dudes, i have to go take photos at a kids mexican party, we're gunna have to use this one, also the battery is going flat on my daihatsu that we've been using for lighting'

'so if you could pay me that tinny and a sixpack of woodstock, il be off'

Bands treating ReverbNation chart positions like they're some kind of prestigious award. :explainittomelikeimfive: So your fans listened to your Auckland metal band on the website more than what the fans of other Auckland metal bands who have actual releases out on CD did. Congrats for participating.

sigh, more radio friendly provincial pop-metal, an unrelenting barrage of softcock wannabes dribbling out the same old inane dirge year after year after year, the only thing of artistic merit is its shameless mediocrity, their superficially grand imagery and the cringe inducing forced hype and self promotion.
this unselfconscious terribleness can be seen as a statement on the talent poverty, the musically bankrupt state of the media and 'popular' music in this unremarkable south pacific nation.
great, more of the same, thats the cure for the aural doldrums, take boring and done before to the world stage, youve got what people want, bland boring shit that sounds heaps like stuff we already hear everyday.

music producers must be amazed when they see people actually imitating the dreck they ram down our throats, they only do it cos they follow a formula, but when guys who ostensibly play music for fun are just carbon copies of carbon copies of safe, watered down, after school top 20 pop shlock shit tripe fuckin dead eyed soulless empty interminable fuckin musical refuse, i see a bleak future indeed.

was that harsh?

'I Like It When You Die' is the fourth album by American grindcore band Anal Cunt. The album was originally titled You're Gay, and the album cover was going to contain a mirror, but this idea was later changed

Overhaile: to overtake; to overpower.

Progressive Metal/Rock from Auckland New Zealand. We are not strictly progressive nor metal, but this is as close as we can come to a genre that fits.

Review: Overhaile has a very classic rock look to them with grizzled veterans like Si on lead vocals and guitars. As a band, Overhaile combine heavy rock guitar riffs with fat bass, smooth tasty vocals and the wild card element, keyboard. Overhaile have put a lot of time into their guitar rigs making them sing with one another and combing into a jaw dropping cohesive tone that will melt your face off and have you screaming for more. Overhaile start strong with the big choruses and tease you through the set as they spark that excitement more and more until the final number Say where the massive open chord breakdowns come in and thrash you once more. Overall they are a very tight band with energy and something to prove to the metal/rock scene.

Opeth, Tool, Faith No More, inFlames, Karnivool, Mastadon

Fuck, band bios make me want to punch all of my own teeth out. If I wrote something like that I'd pull my head off and shit down my own neck.
