Clearing out the bookmarks file...

I've been collecting a few links in my bookmarks, so it's time to unload...
  • It's hard to believe that Throbbing Gristle has never played in NYC before, but it looks like that will change when they play a gig a the Brooklyn Masonic Temple down the street from my apartment in April. One time I was out walking the dog and noticed a lot of people with piercings wearing black clothes with logos bearing pointy fonts wandering around the neighborhood. When I got home I found out that Neurosis and Mastodon were at the Masonic Temple. It doesn't really get more metal than that.
  • The Oxford American's recent music issue has a heartbreakingly awesome feature on Elton and Betty White, who come from my hometown of Little Rock. WFMU's blog also has an audio introduction to them as well.
That's all I've got for now.

Have to agree on that Doc Dart piece by Sam, amazing. I have long admired the Crucifucks and Born Against. However this is a sad and telling portrait. Glad there are others out there who appreciate good writing and a great subject.

I also agree, it's a hell of an article. Sam's blog, the loom of ruin, is also worth reading.
