Ok, this is a short update, so we’re gonna stick to the important shit for the most part… ourselves. You gellin’?
The Icarus Line are going to New York to play a few shows in the city, stalk Moby, steal some more pedals from Gideon Yago, and eat some dogs. Also, if you live in NYC, print out the flyer below and consider yourself part of our street team and hand those fuckers out. Here’s the show info:
5/8 @ Irving Plaza (with Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
5/9 @ Pianos
5/11 @ Luxx in Brooklyn
Your Enemies Friends are finishing up the recording of their debut album this week, and it sounds muy killer. That one will be out on Buddyhead real soon… Stay tuned kids.
The Stooges slayed at Coachella. Besides Aaron pointing at Trent Reznor and telling everybody that walked by, “Look, that’s Trent Reznor”, that was the only good part of the whole festival. Oh, I guess Primal Scream was awesome too. But then again we missed the Blueman Group… that could have been way bomb for all we know.
Oh yeah, White Stripes played too and the sound sucked. Jack White’s real name is John Gillis. Which if you’re keeping score ain’t all that cool. Meg White’s real name is… Meg White.
Burning Brides are too tired to tour anymore, so are canceling their appearances on their current tour. Looks like the party’s in Philly now. Someone buy us some mother fuckin’ plane tickets to Philly!
Yeah Yeah Yeahs are gonna be on Conan O’ Brian this Friday. Conan better get ready to have beer splattered all over him by Karen and then have his photo taken by Nick. It’s gonna be a party either way.
Nada Surf’s label, Barsuk, had a marketing meeting recently and in that meeting they specifically said to not service our site with their record because “Buddyhead’s attitude fucking sucks.” The funny part is we already got a few copies sent to us in the mail. But hey, dudes over at Barsuk, don’t worry, we weren’t planning on reviewing it anyways cuz we already sold em and bought some weed with the money. By the way, the people who work at Barsuk are a bunch of PUSSIES.
Self proclaimed punk rocker, Casey Chaos, from that wack metal band Amen, just wrote the forward to a new book on the shelves called ‘Nu Metal’. Fitting right? Next time you’re at Barnes & Noble, pick it up, it’s worth a chuckle or two.
This is too funny… there is actually a music management company called “BRO MANAGEMENT”! Don’t believe us? Give em a call @ 310-393-4567
Call up MTV VJ Benji from Good Charlotte on his cell phone 571-237-4820 and tell him that when he wants to spike up his bro-hawk, the egg yokes are supposed to go in his hair, not in his mouth… FATASS!
Call up Willa Ford on her cell phone and tell her to quit dropping our names around town. 813-732-3482
E-mail the guitarist with no eyebrows and stupid dreadlocks in Murderdolls, Tripp Eisen, at [email protected]
Sharon and Ozzy put their reality TV star son, Jack Osbourne, in rehab for smoking too much pot. They should have just gone to the root of the problem and sent the kid to fat camp.
Out on June 16 is the Minor Threat demo tape (cd single/7″). This demo tape was recorded 3 or 4 months after Minor Threat formed in Don Zientara’s basement. 8 songs are included here, ‘Minor Threat’, ‘Stand Up’, ‘Seeing Red’, ‘Bottled Violence’, ‘Small Man, Big Mouth’, ‘Straight Edge’, ‘Guilty of Being White’, and ‘I Don’t Want to Hear It’. The Minor Threat live DVD is still being worked on and looks likely to be completed by the fall. Aaron’s shaking he’s so excited.
Wal-Mart shut down Nathan from Creation Is Crucifixion’s site, Hactivist.com. It seems that punk rock is actually doing damage finally. Keep up the good work and post all your scams and use them. Donate to Buddyhead so we can keep the struggle alive suckers.
Thanks to ourselves, These Arms Are Snakes are getting huge. They will be on tour with Jucifer this spring.
Buddyhead will soon be racing Tokion Magazine in a cannon ball run style cross country car race. More on this real soon.
According to Corey Murchy of Minus the Bear and Corey! Kori! Cory!, their tour is making those Led Zeppelin shark fucking stories seem tame. Some of the debauchery has landed one fellow in jail in Florida while another functioned for two days completely blacked out. Go see them on tour and ask Corey for the whole story that he will not tell us.
