According to the LA Weekly, The Icarus Line are a metal band now. Yep your favorite night crawlers are nominated for “Best metal band” in the LA Weekly Annual Music Awards and are up against such heavy METAL hitters as the world famous Pigmy Love Circus, Biblical Proof Of UFO’s, Black Label Society, and our good ol’ buddies A Perfect Circle! For the rest of you normal people out there who don’t know who those bands are, one of them is the drummer for Tool’s other band, one of them is the guitar player for Ozzy’s other band, and… we don’t know who the other bands are. I guess they figure the Icky boys had long hair, so it made sense to them. Mmmmmmmk dudes. Click here to see these Prestigious awards….
Quite shortly The Icarus Line will be spreading their sound like a bad case of anal-herpes across The United States Of America and Canadia. They’ll be sharing the stage with such radical bands as Dead Meadow, Battles, Nardwuar’s band – The Evaporators (who are doing the whole west coast… FUCK YES!), 400 Blows, and Year Future. Travis is staying home this tour cuz someone’s gotta work on shit while Aaron’s playing rock star. If ya wanna be the super cool fan dork up front who knows the new songs before everybody else, you can download the band’s latest BBC session they did in London recently here: PART 1 PART 2. The 2 new songs are called “Skipping Church” and “Frankfurt Smile”. There’s a half assed Black Flag cover on there too where Joe apparently doesn’t remember the words. Also, if you aren’t a limey, chances are ya haven’t heard the Funkadelic cover that’s a b-side on the “Party the Baby Off” single cuz that shit is like 40 bucks on import. Check that out here: Speedsick & Hit It & Quit It. Oh yeah, like we said before, if ya wanna get into any of the shows for free, find Aaron beforehand and give him Ritalin and a gay blowjob out back. Just Ritalin should work too.

Radio Vago are up and running again. The band has been kicking ass around L.A., and will be finishing their debut album shortly with Slowmar.
Shat is recording a new 69 song record for Buddyhead. No, we’re not joking. And Shat is ready to tour, so if you’re in a band, take Shat on tour. Don’t be a pussy!
Speaking of Shat… Why isn’t Shat on Ozzfest? The hillbilly sister fuckers that pay between $90 and $370 for admission would surely eat up Shat and his weird metal songs about pussy. Ozzy’s kids need to get down with Shat. DO IT!
So yeah, Ozzy is hauling his geriatric corpse back out on stage and bringing those other old dudes with him so that all the Hessians will spend all their “bail me out of jail after I get drunk and forcefully sodomize my sister” money on Ozzfest tickets. Guess it’s a good business move, but do you really want to see “Disney Ozzy” shaking like a crackhead singing “Hole in the Sky?” We’ll stay home and avoid Wresltemaniafest or whatever you wanna label this circus without SHAT.
Michael Moore’s new flick “Fahrenheit 9/11” finally got picked up for distribution and will hit theatres nationwide June 25th. The trailer debuted on the internet a few days ago, and it looks BADASS… check it out…. Click here for the trailer and here for Michael Moore’s site. Learn.
Creed broke up… finally. Even Jesus is stoked.
The Vines broke up too… finally. Their “crazy and wild” pot smoking “singer” dude is stoked cuz now he has time to impregnate that chick who’s hairy and dirty or whatever she’s called.
The Libertines broke up too. Finishing a record didn’t sound as much fun as hittin tha pipe.
From the sound of those three last items… shit might be looking up!
We haven’t heard that Velvet Revolver record, but can someone tell that dude who wasn’t in STP or GNR that wearing a beanie and a “Famous Stars And Stripes” t-shirt in every promo photo makes him about as cool as those weenies in Blink 182. Come on dude, you’re in a band with Slash now, let’s not be a total pussy and lose the jock beanie and grow your hair out. Same goes for you Matt Sorum, no one cares that you played on “Illusions” buddy, lose the frosted short Hollywood cut and grow that shit out. Weiland… well you’re fucked no matter what man, just keep doing drugs.
Buddyhead’s lawyer, Bryan Christner, (who used to be in Shelter), won one more for the good guys and got back the rights to the two Atlantic-era Jawbox records for DeSoto Records (who’s gonna re-release them next year, hopefully with some DVD bonus material). Once again Bryan sticks it to the man. Dude is like the Robin Hood of lawyers and shit. Think about it, he does handle us losers.
Speaking of Shelter, Youth Of Today are doing even more reunion shows this summer, but this time in the U.S. Porcell is tired of folding t-shirts at Equal Vision, and needs the loot. Ray too, even though he’s not straight edge anymore, and has a sex addiction problem. Speaking of hardcore dudes with sex addiction problems, these guys had better ask Gayrilla Biscuits to open the shows.
That new Cure song sounds like some posers like Thursday writing a Cure-esque song, though more “in key” vocally. Yeah, it’s fucking shitty, and Robert Smith looks even more bizarre now, like he does his makeup with powdered donuts… which would totally make sense, cause he’d get to gorge his face with donuts after getting all tarted up. Ten bucks says Aaron’s doing that by the next Icarus Line record.
Speaking of Thursday, their crybaby singer kid goes around telling people that “playing live isn’t really their thing”. They also reportedly hit the stage at Coachella by announcing, “Hey, we’re Thursday, and we’re an emo band, you might have heard about emo by now!” Too bad security was tight at that shit, cos if somebody had a gun, that dude woulda been ended.
Stop by Cole Rehearsal in Hollywood… it’s on Cole just south of Santa Monica… if ya wanna hear Fred Durst attempting to “sing”. They’re in studio D. Homeboy usually shows up around 9 or 10. It’s comedy, we promise. Tell em we sent you.
Capitol will be releasing “The Mazzy Star Anthology” (a collection of songs from the bands three studio albums) in October of 2004 with some bonus DVD material. Dope.
Hope Sandoval is also on one song on the “Vetiver” record, which Devendra Banhart plays guitar on and Colm from My Bloody Valentine plays drums on. Also, look out for the Arthur comp Devendra put together. And buy Devendra’s new record. Homeboy is weird and sings about his teeth and shit. Here’s that comp tracklisting.

It’s Christmas in June all over the black hole of humanity that is the Midwest. Yep, a new Slipknot record is upon us. Right now there are about a million dudes with names like “Shitpile” and “Scumfucker” that will take a break from their backyard wrestling matches with their 5 year old sisters to spend every penny they have in their pockets that isn’t going to porno.
Lakers in 5 bitch.
Jeff Winterberg (ex Antoich Arrow) has a photo book out called “Rat a Tat…Birds”. It’s a collection of pictures from 1991-2003 featuring live shots of Jesus Lizard, Monorchid, Karp, Nation Of Ullyses, Boredoms … you name it. It’s fucking rad. Get it @ www.jeffwinterberg.com
Jeff is also in a band called “Coptic Light” with John Fine (ex bitch Magnet) go see them too.
The Mars Volta are winning new fans everyday. Yesterday their new fan was Kirk from Metallica, click here for photo.
Watching American Idol is the 2004 version of watching Star-Trek. Who the fuck cares about these high school talent show morons? Anything that gives Paula Abdul a job and makes millionaires out of weirdo dudes who look like Alvin from the Icarus Line needs to be abolished.
Bob Dylan & Paul McCartney both said they want to be judges on American Idol next year. Come on God, serve these guys up a pair of heartattacks before the next television season.
The guy from the Darkness who sings like the skin of his balls is being peeled away with a buck knife had some surgery that went well and now he can sing all gay again. Bummer, that doctor fucking blew it.
Dillinger have a new record coming out on July 20th called “Miss Machine”. We hear it’s about the Jeff Wood period in the band where chicks would actually show up to shows to see if they could get a piece of the dong master, Jeff Fucking Wood. The Dillinger Escape Plan is also going on tour for, like, ever. Here are the dates… Europe first, then you North American dorks can get with it.

The new Blink 182 video for some song called “Down”, features former gang members playing and get this… this is a total thespian stretch, current gang members. Wow, take 3 white ass dudes from the rich area of San Diego and surround them with gang members. WHO THE FUCK IS WRITING THE STORY BOARDS FOR THESE DUMB FUCKING VIDEOS???? Here’s our idea for their next video, Blink 182 shows up at a party, they’re the only white dudes there… they think they’ll be “down”, cause they hang out with Tommy Lee and rich rappers here and there at gay ass Hollywood parties. So Tom (not sure which one he is, but we know one of them is “Tom”) throws up his hands like he does when he’s high fiving his warped tour buddies after someone scores in Volleyball, and instead of the nice gang members bro-ing down with Blink 182, they beat the living shit out of them for 3 minutes and 30 seconds so that it fits MTV’s criteria for a video getting shown. For 3 minutes and 30 seconds those 3 dorks get fucking pulverized. It would be the best video ever. We’d watch MTV again. It’d be great.
Call up Tara Reid and tell her it’s time to get some more plastic surgery. Yeah, let’s have her lips stapled to her ass. 323.874.9888
While you’re at it, call up Mandy Moore and tell her to act her age, 12. 310.920.1517
Is it just us or does that fat goth chick in Evanesence look like a wee bit plumper Meg White dressed up for Halloween?
That kid made another emo game. We don’t play video games, but Alvin’s gonna beat this shit man. It’s called Bush game. Bush doesn’t give a fuck. http://www.emogame.com/bushgame.html
If you can find it, pick up the new Jools Holland dvd, it’s 34 live performances from 1993-2003 including Primal Scream, Spiritualized, The Charlatans, The Verve, Oasis, Echo and The Bunnymen, Pulp, Radiohead, Blur, The Darkness and Franz Ferdinand. Shits out June 7th.
Courtney Love is going on tour… well, our guess is like one or two of these shows will happen, the rest of the time, she’ll be too busy popping crazy horse pills, showing her tits and vagina off, busting out windows, talking dirty, spitting, smoking, or being too much of a fucking wierdo tweaker to bother showing up.

David Cross’ new record is pretty funny even if he is a dork. Check out this mp3 sample. Click here.
The Revolution Smile got dropped… do we really need to say it?
The bass player from the Strokes is having a kid. Baby lurch?
The singer from the Strokes is getting married to some chick he met in his record label’s office or something. Maybe she can lend him some girly cream for his zits.
So those lame bar rockers Godsmack had their road crew kick the shit out of faux mall “punk rockers” The Story So Far at some lame festival (which is a lot like two retards trying to claw each others eyes out in the back of the short bus), who posted a poor written and detailed account of how they got their asses kicked on their website only to later take it down. Here’s what those pussies posted.
“FUCK GODSMACK AND THIER NAZI FUCKING CREW…..
Hello everyone. Something pretty amazing happened, and I would like to share it with you………..
Last night, at a Radio Show in Indiana, my band (except for Josh, he was in the shower) and our tour manager was jumped by godsmack’s production manager, crew, and security, along with local security. It was a pretty fair fight. The five of us vs. at least ten 200+ pound football reject, jock – coke head fucking piece of shit fucking losers. Almost a fair fight huh? So what did we do to deserve this you probably wondering? It had to have been something really bad huh? Did we have sex with one of their wives? No, that’s not why. Did we steal some of their drugs? No. Not that either. Did we sell their security some bunk steroids?. No. This is the awful thing that we did to get jumped..
The show was in an amphitheater. We made everyone in the crowd jump, and asked everyone in the lawn to come down to the front of the stage. I can totally understand how this might have caused a little bit of a panic for the local security, but the show was sucking, so we had to make it rock. It’s not like there was a riot or anything. It ruled. Apparently, godsmack’s douche bag fucking production manager and crew didn’t like this, so they we’re backstage waiting for us……
I’m going to stop the story right there just to re-interate the fact that this was a RADIO SHOW. NOT A FUCKING GODSMACK SHOW. We were not opening for godsmack. We are not on tour with godsmack. The absolute fact of the matter is that neither godsmacks’s band or crew had any authority or say in anything regarding my band. It was simply none of their fucking business what happened on or off stage during our performance.
Anyway, we walked off stage excited, because we turned a shitty show into a fucking rock show. Within ten seconds of us finishing our last song, Godsmacks ugly dick faced production manager had his hands all over Dan screaming at him saying “Get the fuck out of here, you’re not getting fucking paid” “Who the fuck do you think you are, you’re not fucking rock stars”….Dan replied to the guys face “YEAAAAHHHHH ROCK AND ROLL! WAHOOOOO!” This really pissed off the piece of shit production manager. Our tour manager intervened and told the dude not touch band members. What happens next? Three cro-magnon jock fucks grabs our tour manager and holds him still so one guy could pummel his face. 4 of them jump on Adam and pummel his face. Dan, Phil, and I got hit, but not half as bad as they did. Josh walked off stage and went in the dressing room just 5 seconds before this happened and missed it. I did get to punch a dude in the face a couple of times. That ruled. Dan got to punch thier production manager in the face, and Phil, god love Phil…He picked up a metal box and smashed the pussy face production manager in the head with it. I think It’s still pretty safe to say we lost though.
Let me again re-inerate the fact that no one in godsmack’s band or crew had ANY FUCKING RIGHT TO EVEN SAY A WORD TO US. If we were opening for godsmack at one of THIER lame ass shows or if we were on tour with them, then yeah, they’ve got the power, it’s their show, they’re in charge. But even then, kick us off tour, tell us to go home, cuss at us, don’t pay us whatever. DON’T PUT YOUR FUCKING GORILLA HANDS ON MY FUCKING BAND. That’s not business, that fucking gang shit.
So we just got jumped putting on a rock show, then to top it off, the fucking cops quarantine us in a 300 degree room while all the fucks who started the fight walked around drinking beer and laughing about it. They totally started the fight, threw the first punches, and WE were fucking held in a room, then held in our bus. Then, the icing on the cake; an inbred cop with a handlebar moustache tells us “he’s not putting up with our kind” and ” the whole things a joke and he can personally guarantee that nothing will happen to anyone that kicked our ass”…. Eat another doughnut you power abusive fucking molester.
So why fuck godsmack? Because their dickface crew jumped us and not one member of that fucking band bothered to come and apologize for it. Sully (the singer) walked by our dressing room, looked at us, and gave us a dirty look. No sorry my hoosier ass crew jumped you. No sorry my band hires irresponsible fucking criminals, Nothing from any of them. Awesome.
It’s funny that we played a terrible fucking new metal festival with all these hard ass terrible new metal dork bands like godsmack, and they couldn’t handle little old storyoftheyear’s rock show. Sorry we’re not 40 years old and we don’t stand on stage like someone is forcing us to. Sorry we love our band and love to put on a show for people who pay 3 million dollars to see a bunch of dorky bands stare at their feet. So they took it upon themselves to jump us. Yeah, so fuck godsmack and their stupid fucking crew, and fuck every steroid using, jock fucking cave man security guard that thinks hitting a dude 200 pounds smaller than him is cool. Eat shit and die you fucking pussies. “
