I really have nothing to report this week. I am though pissed that people are wasting precious water, but I digress. I'm glad and waiting for the huge show this Saturday at El Rio here in San Francisco with Black Cobra, The Cutthroats 9 and The Mass. These three San Francisco bands have their own following and we are all coming together for one night. Black Cobra will be banging & heavy riffin' throughout the rest of the night. The Cutthroats 9 will be bringing the Unsane-Noise Rock hammer down as they play.  Then we have The Mass. They haven't played live in years, but they will bring their "A's" Metal game to the show. If you haven't been to a good heavy show in a while, this one will knock you to the ground and hopefully they'll pick you up from the pit if it's stable enough. HA! See you there.

REISSUE LP's | Razorcake TOP 5 | Playlist | August 12, 2014

I really like reissue LP’s. Reissues to me brings back a certain record that was part of a generation that either embraced it or was lost during that era. Reissues also brings back that band/sound to the newer generation so they can appreciate what was happening at that time or just its music. I just picked up a few reissue LP’s just this week because (1.) I was not around in the early 70s and (2.) the albums were only CD. I remember when CD’s were at its highest popularity that major labels did not press most releases on wax. We all know that the last 7-10 years, vinyl sales are at its highest and reissues as well. When I’m digging through the new LP sections I see so many reissues from bands I recognize and some I don’t. The bands I don’t know, I go online and hear them (thank you Bandcamp & Youtube) and most of the time I’ll but their reissue LP right there.

As of late I’ve been into the band, Colored Balls from Australia. These guys were the best RNR band of their time back in the early 70s (and ahead of their time too), but 95% of the North America (or maybe even the world) didn’t hear them because imports had limited distribution and imagine the cost of it too. That’s also another reason why didn’t have those records nor hear them on the radio. Now, dedicated reissue record labels are bringing us music that was lost to the masses and can hold them now and play them on out record player at home. Now I have both Colored Balls reissue LP’s as well as Clutch’s ‘Jam Room’ LP and my friends at Valley King Records here in San Francisco just reissued both Dale Crover’s side-project, Altamont’s early records. I’m looking forward to more reissues to come, but in the meantime I will always buy new releases as well. Viva Reissues!
(pictured above from L-R): Colored Balls, Clutch, Altamont 2 records on Valley King Records) 

I think I haven't mentioned this in a while, but I have contributed a TOP 5 in Razorcake 'Zine for the last 7 years or so. If you don't know Razorcake, it's a DIY Punk zine that was started by Todd Taylor (old editor of Flipside) back in 2000 (or after Flipside ended its long publication). For more information or you would like to donate to Razorcake, click on picture down below or buy it your local indi record & book stores near you. Here's my TOP 5 in the latest issue of Razorcake. Enjoy!

Thanks for listening and your support everybody. If you missed the show, you can download or stream it by clicking the iTunes box. Also, click on my social networks and add me to yours. We'll have lots of fun. HA! Have a great weekend and stay straight. Yeah right. CHEERS! ~ Naked Rob, SFC
