Lo Fire :: Apache Tomcat’s ‘Manifest Destiny’s Child Soldier Boy George Harrison Ford Focus’

When Jonny from Apache Tomcat hit me up a while ago (and about a completely different project, whom I will feature in the future) and told me about the new lo-fi project he was in, I was in the stretch of a very busy and creative month.  I had every intention of listening, but time was a limited commodity.  When I finally did get a chance to sit down and listen to Manifest Destiny’s Child Soldier Boy George Harrison Ford Focus, I was floored, and immediately kicking myself for taking so long to get around to check out the project.  From the jump, this project gave me the same feelings that projects by Tim KerrDirty BeachesThe Butthole Surfers and bands of that ilk do… grungy sounds, chameleon-like vocals that are playful and intriguing, and an immediacy that other music lacks these days were all elements that spoke to me.  This one is definitely worth checking out and downloading, as well as telling a friend to do the same.

Powerful Nostalgia :: Total Sound Group Direction Action Committee Footage From Trophy’s Surfaces

Anyone unfamiliar with the legend of Tim Kerr (especially anyone native to Austin) has some homework to do.  From Big Boys to Lord High Fixers to Total Sound Group Direct Action Committee and more, Kerr has left an indelible mark on his city, punk/rock music, and art as a whole.  Recently, Butcher Bear uncovered some footage of a Trophy’s on South Congress show, and decided to upload it to (in)Sect Record‘s YouTube channel.  As a result, all of us have been blessed with the raw power than was Tim Kerr and his bandmates, and their extremely passionate sound.  Enjoy, share, and let the nostalgia of a simpler and better time take you over.
