OBNIII’s/Fuzz at Noise Pop 2013

the knockout
Thursday night at The Knockout began with a long trip down Mission, thinking about food and looking for a sweet spot to find some grub. After some seafood curry and chicken in peanut sauce up the street, we headed over to the show in time to catch G Green setting up their stuff. The Knockout is a narrow club with a long bar running up one side of it, a couple of seats and benches and a cozy stage at the end of it all. Between sets a young woman kept the groove alive spinning sweet songs one after another and 2 large video screens silently alternated between bodacious 80’s hair bands and films like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligheri.
G Green, out of Sacramento, opened the show and tore into a quick set of songs driven by a limping drummer and giant bassist with a 6-foot smile- good kids playing good music. After some frantic adjustments to their gear, Blasted Canyons laboriously made their way through a sound plagued set never seeming quite satisfied with the levels. I was looking forward to hearing them and was not disappointed despite obvious frustration from the band. I got chills during their song “Ice Cream Man” as the trio rotated among their synthesizers, guitars and drums for each song and were awarded the blue ribbon for kick-ass mustache of Noise Pop.

The room rapidly filled up as the darling child of the bay area Ty Segall took the stage with his latest incarnation Fuzz. I will include myself in the crowd of gawkers that came to catch a glimpse of this one man record label. Ty Segall has produced more good music in the past year than most young musicians dream of cuddled in their moon and stars sheets brushing their tousled hair out of their eyes. My impression- he’s locked in, powering through the set hitting the drums hard, hard, hard. Singing, screaming, driving the pace and holding his accompanying musicians, both flawless and impressive, through a short set of low end thrumming re-verb book-ended in feedback; and new songs, one with lyrics one without- look for the 7″ coming soon- hope hope.
Fuzz unloaded their gear and the spectacle was over, the well dressed half of the crowd made their way to the exits and the punk rock kids shuffled closer to the stage awaiting a real rock and roll treat of the classic punk variety- OBNIII’s. They were the coolest kids at the club, their demeanor was charged, moving slowly and precisely gearing up and then POW. Orville Bateman Neeley III is the man, the lead guitar was the reincarnation of Buddy Holly in his true to life form, I’ve always held the belief that Buddy Holly was the first punk born 50 years too soon. The bassist stared down the crowd swaggering back and forth, the rhythm guitar slammed out power chords Johnny Ramone style and the drummer was solid, the little punk rock girls swooned to his beat.

Oscars, Geezers, and the Old Timey Affair

FyH025 Oscars, Geezers, and the Old Timey Affair

Yes we did. We chose our Oscar picks, we started the pre-game ceremony for the red carpet Hollywood glam fest that is the award show to end all award shows. Compare your scorecard with ours and you probably won’t even need to watch the 4 hour snore-fest after slogging through our 2 hour snore-fest. At least we all have another excuse to eat lots of finger food and not take the dog for a walk.

the movie review this week: The Invisible War (up for an Oscar)
the article we discuss: The Man Who Killed Osama bin Laden . . . Is Screwed
the song of the show: Eat Skull – Space Academy on the album “III” released today February 19, 2013 on Woodsist Records

President’s Day: Obama, Lincoln and Kevin Spacey

FyH024 President’s Day

It’s President’s Day and we give our 2 copper pennies worth of opinion about the SOTU, the new series titled House of Cards on Netflix and we switch gears on our book choice. Instead of 2030 we pick up Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and we’ll have a go at that. Dan finally listened to the song selection this week and we come to a consensus on Wavves “Demon To Lean On”. Grab a spoon and start shovelin’
