Who comes to mind as I blast the new Kiss the Anus of a Black Cat album To Live Vicariously?  I feel like I’m  pushed back into a time when Uncle Jams Parties and Egyptian Lover ruled the Los Angeles party scene. Also as I jam out to K.T.A.O.A.B.C., I began

Very low and extremely fucking slow is how the new BISMUTH album entitled Unavailing is going to make you feel. They have conjured up a collection of songs that are ultra monolithic in nature, but are so beautiful in their own right. BISMUTH’s music has a mediative quality to it

Text and Photos: Milton Stille As is often sadly the case, the venue was sparsely populated upon my arrival. It’s almost anomalous for shows of this nature to happen on Granville Street, which has disgracefully been dubbed the “party district,” consequently rendering it a cesspool of the type of human

Deep, deep dowm in the filthy sonic stench we call doom/sludge exists a band called DISROTTED, and they bring pure torment with each release. In November, these merchants of down tuned murder riffs are heading over to Japan for a tour. They also have recorded a split with su19b that
