Frozen by the snow & BURNT BY THE SUN

Here comes a new track to this all-new player. It doesn't fit though. But who cares? Music is what counts after all.

BURNT BY THE SUN is a NJ based band, specialised in delivering extreme post HxC oriented good Rock'n'Roll, because that what it's all about.

This particular song, "Forlani", is taken from their second full length, "The Perfect Is The Enemy Of The Good", released 2003 on Relapse. They also released a demo first and a split LP with label-mates LUDDITE CLONE.

Getting back to the music itself, BURNT BY THE SUN is one of the greatest forms of extreme music today. Their great mix of brutallity, riffage, technicity and melody (there's some, I can tell) is particularly distinctive from the numerous bands they shared stages with. Kind of fresh I would say, and extreeeeemelly gooooood.

Enjoy that track and go get yourself a copy of their latest (last?) effort.

A new player to be up soon

Hi folks,

I tried a new player which is far more efficient than the one I use. A new song will be posted pretty soon, expect some brilliant earth-shaking fast & heavy "Neo-Post-HxC-call it as you wish Rock'n'Roll" that gonna make your head banging like there's no tomorrow. And there will be no tomorrow.

I'll soon post some songs from my own vinyl collection. 60's and 70's Rock'n'roll gems you will need to buy from your favorite local record store.

Noise for Christ's sake

This player is a pain in the ass.

It cuts songs.

Too bad 'cause I just added "Goat Lips" from LADDIO BOLOCKO. Those guys crafted a unique form of ambient and chaotic noise, straight from the guts of NYC. As most of the greatest bands of the 90's, they were short lived. I can only recommend The Life & Times Of LADDIO BOLOCKO, a 2xCD compilation that shows the indeniable talent of this band.

"Goat Lips" starts as a false start pop song (knowing that a pop song would never sound that way), then turns into an indie post HxC song DRIVES LIKE JEHU could have played. Then, fury and madness take over the music and it all becomes a solid mass of unquestionable chaotic deconstruction (I'm not sure those last words mean anything put together in that particular order).

Listening to LADDIO BOLOCKO at a descent volume (because it's meant to be played louder than what your neighbours can tolerate) can actually drive you crazy.

LADDIO BOLOCKO was an essential band of the 90's underground NYC scene. Well, in my opinion...
