Alright, I've changed the name of Taste Maker fanzine to Us & Them, or Us Und Them. All depending... So, for a while, this site will stay up to inform the few followers of what's up, and direct them all over to the new site, which is here: http://usundthem.blogspot.com/
I just posted three photos of NASA Space Universe. Working on getting some reviews up there in the next week or so as well.
The other night, after the Street Eaters set, a local band called Blood Buddies played. At first I thought people were saying the Blood Brothers were playing. My immediate reaction was, Yuck, who still wants to listen to screamo shit in this day and age? Fortunately, it was Blood Buddies and not Blood Brothers. As Blood Buddies are a far better band, or actually duo. Featuring members of Swallowing Swords, and Touch Me Satan, their sound is definitely hard rock that goes over into punk territory. I thought they were pretty good, and they have a three song demo I'm listening to quite a bit these days. For more information go here.
And now, here's some photos...
The name Street Eaters had worked its way into my mind a while back. No idea how it got there. Then sometime later I heard a song from them on a Maximum Rocknroll podcast and became hooked. So, when I found out they were playing here in town, I jumped at the chance to see them. And it was better than I had expected. Tuneful punk/post punk type stuff delivered by two people who fill the room with their sound. Not to mention they have a great stage presence. They have a new LP out on Bakery Outlet called "Rusty Eyes and Hydrocarbons" that I recommend picking up.
Here's but a few photos from the show...
Finally was able to get out to a great show this past Friday. After catching NASA Space Universe at Pehrspace a week before I had to see them again. However, due to bad directions from Google Maps, I ended up missing them by a couple minutes by the time I found the secret location of The Spot.
However, all was not lost. Trench Rot, Stressors (Bay Area), and Rough Kids were also on the bill. Which made for a great night.
Below are three shots of Trench Rot. I'll post the Rough Kids as soon as possible.
Trench Rot have a EP out now, and I was told are recording for an LP now. Check them out here.
