Buddyhead has your Friday night planned if you live in Los Angeles…. First off, The Icarus Line are shamming everybody out by playing at the House of Blues in Hollywood the same time as the Lakers game. The Icky Line play at 7:30. Weak, we know, but everybody is invited backstage post set to watch the game while the party dude does jumping jacks or whatever he does. After the game go check out Your Enemies Friends with Pretty Girls Make Graves at the Troubadour. It’ll be the first place you can buy “The Wiretap EP” cd, it won’t hit stores till June so don’t fuck this one up. If you live outside of the Los Angeles area or are just too fat to leave your house, you’ll be able to order it from the buddyhead store sometime next week. As for what you should do right now, read this wonderful little write up Your Enemies Friends got in the OC Weekly.
Ok, this is big news. Axl has been replaced. The new band that’s not called Guns N’ Roses, but features Izzy, Duff, Slash, and that dipshit singer guy with the new tattoos and bad hair from Buckcherry got signed to Dreamworks. Nothing is sacred it seems.
Everyone famous is getting their own Osbourne’s type TV reality show. Stay tuned for some boring fucking television.
Fred Durst has been begging the dude who quit with the face paint junk to come back and write some songs for him. In the meantime, the tubster has been tried to learn how to play guitar. This oughta be good.
The dude in Korn that looks like a kid toucher is getting weirder. Which one is right! We don’t know, but he’s in the band and he’s opening a museum dedicated to serial killers in L.A. It’s going to feature clown suits worn by killer/pedophile John Wayne Gacey. We’re staying away from this place, but Aaron’s way psyched cause he’s a cape-wearing goth and likes little boys.
The new Hot Snakes album “Suicide Invoice” is REDFUCKINGHOT. Aaron stopped listening to System Of A Down even to listen to it. The album comes out on Swami Records 6.18.02. Attention major label a&r douches, this band is better than every band on your label. Unless your label has Tool on it.
Ringo houses Charlie Watts.
The White Stripes are playing the MTV Movie Awards with Ja Rule and Kelly Osbourne on the day rent is due. But we’re not going. You’d think seeing as how we know Gideon Yago, we could get in. But it seems “knowing Gideon Yago” gets you dick around those parts. If anyone with some clout wants to hang out with us and get us in, let us know. The White Stripes are also in the middle of recording their 4th LP, which rumor has it is an autobiographical album titled “Retard Incest Love”.
Rama Mayo is in Hawaii. If you live on the Island of Oahu and you want to party with Travis’s roommate, email him at [email protected] and let him know you are gonna buy him some alcohol, women, and drugs.
Rivers Cuomo and Chris Carrabba are going on a hunt to find the “perfect 11 year old”, The two emo stalkers with shitty back up bands in hand will be hitting the U.S. for a month long run of crying four eyed dorks and soiled asian panties. Oh, and to make this traveling nightmare even worse, the Kennedy Family of rock, The Strokes have committed to performing on some dates. Sparta looks like they’ll be jumping on some dates too. Check out the new Sparta full length that’s gonna come out soon called “Wiretap Scars”. That title kinda sounds familiar guys.

Brian Warner thinks his name is Axl. He kicked Twiggy out of Marilyn Manson cuz Brian was pissed he was more into Djing shitty glam rock at The Standard than writing “Beautiful People” again. Brian is gonna finish up the new Manson record with some dude from KMFDM. Let’s hope he doesn’t wear a chicken bucket. It’s gonna be called, The Golden Age of Grotesque.
Aaron Icarus will now and forever be know as “The Wizard Of Brahs”. It’s kind of like when Prince changed his named to that symbol. Cept no one really cares.
Thursday put out this statement whining about Victory Records on their website. We think they should both shut the fuck up and quit everything and give us all their fucking money so we can throw BBQ’s everyday. And if we had enough money we’d really like to buy a hot tub. That would make the party killer. Rama told us if emo gets big he’ll buy a hot tub. We’d post the statement, but we’re too lazy.
Shawn Lopez from Flawless Records house band the Revolution Smile s dating Jeff Wood’s married girlfriend. Shawn…listen up, Jeff is pretty pissed at you man. Basically, if Jeff doesn’t kill you… Well, let’s put it this way, that Shat song called “CRABS” isn’t a joke.
On the less personal side of Revolution Smile, Fred Durst directed their first video. That must have went a little like “Ok guys…. All of you need to bend over now!”
If you live in the U.K., call this number 44 2083 461 298, it’s Fred Durst’s “personal assistant”, Adam. Ask Adam if he can connect you with the International Pie Eating Champion.
Don’t cut your hair.
Courtney Love finally told everyone what they already knew and didn’t care about in the first place…. Yeah, Hole is over. Courtney is working on some new band though so she can stay famous. Courtney, give us more money.
Green Day is putting out a B-sides and rarities release in July. Matt Skiba and Heather Hannoura care about that one.
Snapcase just finished their new record called “End Transmission.” That dude still can’t sing his way out of a paper bag.

The Dillinger Escape Plan have finally posted a reason as to why they had to cancel their European tour – “Unfortunately kids… we have been sabotaged! A Certain European booking agent decided to fuck up a bunch of our dates (most of which were to take place in Germany) because we fired him. Why did we fire him you ask… because he didn’t abide to a verbal contract of honesty and failed to adhere to the commitment of achieving certain tasks. In other words people, don’t tell a band you book the Wu Tang Clan when you don’t and most certainly don’t untruthfully tell people you book a handful of other bands that that person talks to on a regular basis. Dumb Dumb dumb! OK now that we have vented about this numb nuts, we would like to apologize to those who were unable to catch Dillinger due to these events. Make up shows are already in process for late August and early September and will be posted soon.” As for the nearer future, the band plans on playing the following shows here in the states:
06.18 – New Haven, CT – Toads
06.19 – Cleveland, OH – Agora Theater
06.20 – Detroit, MI – Shelter
06.21 – Chicago, IL – Fireside Bowl
06.22 – Louisville, KY – KrazyFest
Britney broke up with Justin again, rumor has it that Jeff Wood gave her the “I’ll eat you out for 2 hours with my clothes on and leave” line and she went for it.

Sarah Ultragrrrl told us we need to post something, here it is in her own words:
My friend, Sean McGrath, was recently admitted into Columbia Prysbeterian Hospital after several of his organs stopped working. During exploration surgery it was discovered that he had cancer of the digestive track. In order to raise money for his medical bills (which will be a small fortune close to $500,000), and raise his spirits, me and some friends got together with a couple of bands to organize this benefit concert. Sean was in a lot of hardcore/punk bands growing up (Saves the Day and Mouthpiece), so his friends came out in full force. This show will be really amazing, and it’s for a really great cause.read below and thanks!
Tickets for Sean McGrath’s benefit show went on sale this afternoon…

The Bands: Thursday, Midtown, Taking Back Sunday, the Alps and Special Guests
