As you might imagine, I am snowed in big time this weekend so I have nothing
to report…except that I watched a very cool movie called Sukiyaki
By famed Japanese director Tikashi Miike a friend of Quentin Tarantino who is also in the film for short bits. I watched it for the hot japanese guys and the extremely cool western/wasteland/punk look everyone had, but its also an mix of western and japanese action...a buckwheat soba western, haha (instead of spaghetti, get it??), anyway it makes for a very interesting combo for sure! ....
Oh yeah there's all kinds of free stuff to keep ya occupied when you're snowed
in..., like for example; you can peruse the Sonic Labotomy
Sonic Lobotomy is completely non profit. The show airs on several community access cable systems throughout New England including Cambridge, Salem, Somerville, and Danvers. Bands that appear on the show also are allowed to use the material for their own needs. TJ Welch is hte mastermind behind the show and its concept, he's also the founding member of Boston bands The Blue Bloods and The Welch Boys.
He's got Darkbuster and Kilslug and Three Day Threshold and lots of other excellent bands on his show ...definitely something you can spend a lot of snow time on...or any other time for that matter!!
And then, if you are still snowed in this week....I forgot to give you the links earlier this month to Jan Crocker's new videos posted on Kinovd...
First off there's a cut from the Unnatural Axe DVD "You'll Pay For This!"
Check out the AXE ripping up Boston's Rat Club with "Tonight We Fight." Unnatural Axe ruled from the front seat in the Boston music scene during the late 70's and 80's. The Axe are still bring it today,
so check them out if they come to kick some ass in your neighborhood. Watch "Tonight We Fight" here
And here's a real cool Christmas gift for you: In case you missed it, the Sex Pistols played in Sweden in 1977.
Swedish parents said: Vad är ett kön pistol? Hide the vodka and the children, the Pistols are on the Eastern front. Seal the border!!!!. Titta på Sex Pistols gift ungdomarna i Sverige med: "Anarchy in the UK"
