Feral Children




Every now and again I receive email telling me that the content of the blog is appreciated. The latest one was obviously a cut and paste from a record label representative who took the opportunity to email every music blogger with a visible email address about the band they're presently hyping. Otherwise I'm guessing this may be related to the The Pixies mention. Truth is, I think The Pixies were overhyped garbage for people who couldn't handle Killdozer. I don't know really know what a hipster is but I get the feeling Seattle band Feral Children is going to be called "hipster garbage" by more in the know music critics.

Sarathan Records have a free download of Feral Children's EP available if you're so inclined. You can get it from their record label site . There's also a link to Feral Children's myspace site which has songs. I recently downloaded Hugh Cornwell's latest album and fall asleep every time I listen to it. I expect the effects of listening to Feral Children's EP could be far worse. Update your will and ensure distance from sharp objects before downloading.

Ha ha ha, this is hilarious! I got that same e-mail, also. And your evaluation of The Pixies is dead-on.

Do you get the Mary Shelley Overdrive ones too?
I had an overwhelming feeling the actual content of this blog wasn't really looked at by the label rep.

Funny, I got the Feral Children email sitting right here. Darn, all this time I thought I was special!

Loved the Pixies statement, never could figure out why I was supposed to like them.

Thanks for the link, my peacedogman brother. I've loaded you up on the Ripple Effect.

Keep the free world safe from bad music, my friend.
