Ruin Your Life In The Name Of Filth

Time to dig into the Judge's Cave box set a little deeper; I first mentioned this in the midst of a Libyans show review, back when I bought it about month ago, but something this remarkable really deserves its own post. 22 tracks from eight mostly New Haven-area artists, spread out over four cassettes, with an old school cut-and-paste zine inside a hand-painted box. As I said before, the Medication recordings are the first-ever versions to be tracked with a full band, there's eight songs from the aborted Sudden Walks LP, plus indie/fuzz/noise stuff from Permanent Feels, Roman Wolfe, Female, and Colorguard, and metal stuff from Bible Frost (best fukkin name) and Ehrgeizig. If you care at all about really good Connecticut music like I do, or just want something that's friggin' cool to have around the house, then this set is a must-get.

I think Stefan has about 15 sets left out of the original 66 that were made, so either hustle to get a copy from Never Heard Of It (myspace slash neverheardofitrecords) or at an Estrogen Highs/Popeye's Garage-related show; I'll bet Redscroll might still have some, too.

My Nerves Are Fucking Shot

click for enlarged view

While I'm at it, here's the first Sudden Walks 7" (just scroll down to the previous post for the latest one). On the scale of lo-fi rock, this is way more Rip Offs than Coconut Coolouts, if you know what I'm saying. Okay, so right now I'm having a Sudden Walks day on my crappy blog... but it's cool, alright. Seriously, folks, this is totally awesome stuff here. Two of the best singles ever from Connecticut. Check it out.

You Feel So Dead To Me

Sudden Walks is/was folks from Estrogen Highs, Clusterfuck, Self Defense, etc, and while it took me about two months to take their new EP-- and 2nd 7"-- out of the box (which is only about one-tenth of the time that it took for the label to make it), I soon found out that, holy crap, this baby smokes. No surprises there, I guess. "You Feel So Dead", in particular, is a hardcore garage fit that'll take your head off if you're not careful. I am now declaring "You Feel So Dead" to be the jam of the day, so start paying attention.
