We finally put up the digital photo gallery of images Travis shot while on tour with Cave In and The Icarus Line. Click here to view, but be warned, The Captain is in most of them, but that’s cuz he’s a child star. Make sure to check out the remaining Icarus line dates if you live in those cities. And I mean come on if you live in any of those cities there isn’t shit else to do.
The Icarus Line tour dates:
12/12 Austin, TX Emo’s (Without Cave in)
12/13 Lubbock, TX Campus CDs (Without Cave in)
12/14 El Paso, TX E9 (Without Cave in)
12/15 Phoenix, AZ Nile Basement (Without Cave in)
We wouldn’t believe it if we wouldn’t have seen it with our own eyes. While we were on tour with Cave In and The Icarus Line in North Carolina, Cave In took the night off and played a show with The Strokes down the street. Cave In played great, but the crowd didn’t seem too receptive. None of us had ever seen The Strokes, so we checked it out, but they proved to be just what we were expecting. Nicely dressed but boring as all fuck. The funny part came when we walked outside and noticed that the side of The Strokes tour bus got tagged with “$uckn Dick$”. Someone had copy-cat our tag (the one we did on Cave In’s Ryder truck at the begging of the tour click here) and yet outdone us with the dollar signs and size. We were so impressed we took photos (click here to view em). Oh well, nothing daddy won’t pay for.
Aside from getting free paint jobs, The Strokes, have also spawned a bizarre tribute band that play Casio-style keyboard versions of the group’s songs. “The Diff’rent Strokes” – who deliberately spell their name the same way as the ’80s sitcom starring Gary Coleman – are to release their EP ‘This Isn’t It’ next month. The EP re-creates the original album sleeve and instrumental versions of ‘Last Nite’, ‘Hard to Explain’, ‘The Modern Age’ and ‘Is This It?’ Sounds pretty boring. The musicians behind The Diff’rent Strokes have so far refused to identify themselves. The EP is out on December 3 on the Guided Missile label. Maybe they are the taggers.
“Guns n’ Roses”, more like Axl and a bunch of dorks, decided to play another show in Vegas this New Years. This time it’s two shows at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. And just like last year when we attended the snore fest, no Slash, no Izzy, no Duff, not even the drummer with the Muppet haircut. You get a fat Dizzy, a dude wearing a fucking chicken bucket on his head, a tubby Axl, a dude from the Replacements who thinks he’s Duff, a guy from Nine Inch Nails (who looks like he’s still in Nine Inch Nails) and a drummer with a backwards baseball cap on from Primus. But hey, it’s still better than most of the other shit. We can’t lie; we’re a little bit excited.
We’re fucking excited! From what we’ve heard, Rocket From The Crypt isn’t breaking up and they aren’t letting that clown from Reel Big Fish in the band like we thought. Ok, great. Now what we’re excited about… The mother fucking HOT SNAKES will be going in the studio to record the follow up to Automatic Midnight in December! The line-up for the recording will be the same, and just like the first one, the new record won’t have any bass on it. Our shorts are moist already.
Interscope was trying to pull a power move over the Puddle of Mudd timeslot for the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas. They were trying to steal Bad Religion’s time slot for Puddle of Mudd. They told KROQ that they would get Fathead Durst to come out on stage with his pants hanging off his ass and do his pseudo mock rapping thing with them if they could have BR’s time slot. But in the end the old punk rockers win out over fat headed “fake-Nirvana” bands.
During the filming of the “What’s going on video” with the blindfolds apparently Fred Durst and Justin Timberlake refused to wear bandanas that said “Gay” on them and stormed off the set. Insecure boys?
The Knot’s (Slipknot) London/Sire imprint label, Maggot Records is getting shut down. 14-year-old chubby kids in orange jumpsuits who give themselves names like “Filth” and “Tub of Shit” are going to have someone’s ass for this.
Corey from Slipknot is starting a side project called Superego. No word on if they wear stupid masks or not.
Jack Black is hosting Saturday Night Live January 19th. Maybe the show will actually be funny again. Oh, and guess who’s playing that night as the musical guest… Yep! You’re favorite (four car) garage band, The Strokes. Seems like they could have just killed two birds with one stone and had The D play.
Chris Carrabba (aka soul-less white devil from the hate group known as Dashboard Confessional) recently took all the money little fat girls have given him and bought a new Audi TT! Yep an Audi TT. You know–those cars that rich mom’s who are clinging on to youth buy. It’s like the female corvette. And the best part is, he got the convertable, so his head fits.
Jimmy Eat World is in the Christmas mood already. They recently rushed into the studio to record a cover of a George Michael X-Mas song. And it ended up as an “E-Greeting”. The scary part is, I don’t think they were joking. Click here
New old-hardcore-guy band. Vic (Inside Out / 108), Alan (Quicksand), Gavin (Die 116 / Pry), and Shaun (Excel) have come together to form “The Projectors”. From what we hear, they are making some kickass tunes and will be recording an EP in mid November… we’ll keep you posted.
That new “Ex-Sunny Day” project with Jeremy, Will, and Nate is going to be called “The Fire Theft”. It’s apparently named after a common idea found in ancient mythology. Someone look that up for us.
Jay-Z did MTV Unplugged with The Roots as his backing band. Where is the justice? When does Kool Keith get his unplugged?
The Campfire Girls are playing a few shows around LA. Silverlake lounge (Sunset and Silverlake blvd. in Silverlake) this Wednesday at 9:30 with James Hall. Cover is $5. They are also throwing a Campfire Girls X-Mas party at The Three of Clubs (Vine and Santa Monica blvd. in Hollywood) there is no cover and they will be playing an extended set of new and old material. Show starts around 9:30 also.
Kid Rock got another Guitar stolen. Nate? His custom-made Gibson guitar was discovered missing at customs when he arrived overseas this week. Kid Rock was going to perform for American Servicemen as part of an MTV/USO holiday television special. The stolen guitar is painted with the Stars and Stripes across the body. Also missing is a handmade rhinestone and beaded guitar strap, embroidered with the name “Rock.” “I just want to get it back,” Kid Rock said. Atlantic Records is urging anyone with info about the guitar’s whereabouts to call 212-707-2051. We urge everyone to call and claim that they have the guitar.
Gibby (the perv who runs that kiddy porn site makeout club dot com www.makeoutoutclub.com) threatened to sue some kid named Jarrett Estes (he does a site called wangout club dot com www.wangoutclub.com) because Jarrett copied Gibby’s layout. Hey kids, yer both fruitcakes.
Ben Folds’ song “Bizarre Christmas Incident” (originally titled “Santa is a Big Fat Fuck”), which got rejected from “The Grinch” soundtrack last winter, is now available at his website in real audio (or on audiogalaxy.com on mp3 – you pick). It’s also being released as a radio-only single.
Jimmie’s Chicken Shack broke up. Shit!
New York art show you need to attend. On December 14, 2001 – January 19, 2002 (opening party with famous people, free wine, and free cheese is Friday, December 14, 6-9 pm) at the Mark Pasek Gallery (122 Suffolk Street | New York NY, 10002 | 212 388 0631 | [email protected] | Gallery hours Thurs – Sun 1 -7 pm). Come check out art by Brian Montuori (he played keyboards in the Dillinger Escape Plan for a bit and had a brief fling with David Bowie), Wes Lang, and Jansson Stegner.

Courtney Love, Tom Morello, Chris Cornell, and Morrissey, among others, were all seen swinging from the nuts of the International Noise Conspiracy when they played at the Roxy on Dec 3rd in Hollywood.
The singer of Creed has been comparing his Jesus rock band to Led Zeppelin. Someone better explain to that dude that his band is more like a Pearl Jam cover band.
Pitch Weekly (from Kansas) recently ran an article on the latest Cave In/Icarus Line stuffs. Click here.
The Boston Phoenix ran an interview with Travis. Click here.
Glassjaw is leaving Roadrunner Records for Ross Robinsons I AM record label. Supposedly the people at Roadrunner don’t know this…..oops.
Gene Simmons has a book coming out. In it he talks about how he’s banged 4600 beautiful women and what bags of shit his band mates are. Old comic book collectors who think they like rock n’ roll are stoked. I’ll wait for the Motley Crue movie to come out. By the way, if you haven’t read it yet, pick up the Crue book, it’s insane.
The Mangina and Tom (Gary Busey) are in a just filmed episode of the Sopranos. The scene takes place in a shitty New Jersey bar with a shitty band playing. Look for Tom sporting a “Shoot Pigs in the Face” t-shirt and the Mangina is rocking his new Mullet Bro-hawk thing. Tom said that when he gets real famous he’s buying a fleet of bomb purple cars.
James Hetfield of Metallica is out of rehab. Someone needs to let James know that rehab is for quitters and big pussies.
Someone sent us this picture of a band called Rickets Madcore where one of the members is rockin’ out with a Buddyhead “shoot pigs in the face” shirt on.
Some band called “The Slags” is playing at Don Hill’s in NYC on Dec. 19th, Wed., right after Bebe Buell’s set. Why did we post this? Only so you can go to Don Hill’s and watch Jeff Wood mack upon girls in his new suit.
The new Hopeless “50th Release” comp has everyone’s name that voted on the songs on the inside sleeve. Jeff Wood’s name is in there. The only reason to own it.
The Black Halos haven’t broken up. We said they did. But they didn’t. Leave it to us to fuck it up.
We were the last to find out about this too. In the “like anyone who’s not in the band cares” category, the new Dag Nasty cd will be out on Revelation records, not Epitaph. And yes, it is the “Can I Say” lineup.
The word on the street is that DreamWorks signed AFI. The band hasn’t confirmed yet though. The bidding war went on for a while; they probably got a pretty sweet deal. No word yet if DreamWorks will re-release their current record, “The Art of Drowning” (Nitro Records).
Gabe from The Murder City Devils said the Atari’s “suck ass”.
The singer of Guttermouth (and author of some the best 6th grade poetry this side of Epitaph) broke his ankle last Saturday while they were playing. Be careful when doing those choreographed jumps brah.
Lots of Evaporators and Goblins music is availible in the MP3 and real audio formats (in the “Evaporators and Goblins” section) on nardwuar’s website. Click here.
Someone decided they wanted Jeremy’s camera bag more than he did, so they took it. The stage of The Glasshouse during The Hive’s set was the last place it was seen. If you stole it you are going to die.
Saves the Day will be on Craig Kilburn show Thursday Dec. 13th. Tune in if you like things in yer butt.
Jessie Turner will be filming a new “teen” movie next month for the WB as soon as he gets out of a weekend drug rehab clinic in Hawaii. We wish him the best.
The Benjamin’s broke up. Damn.
Scott Weiland got busted by the pigs for drugs again. We need to get him a “Shoot Pigs in the Face” shirt.
Buddyhead isn’t funny anymore.

Guns N’ Roses still doesn’t have Duff on bass.
Guns N’ Roses still doesn’t have Slash on guitar.
