Looking back at 2009

While this blog keeps marching on into the new decade, a few notables that were much better mp3 blogs than the one your eyes are currently feasting on have sadly disappeared. The German blog Garageland aka Lick My Pussy Eddie Van Halen that had a lot of garage rock, punk and Flying Nun music sadly disappeared. Thanks to Jorge, his uploads are already appearing on this blog with more to come.

Nuclear Farmed Fuck Frogs disappeared after Bernard the Librarian sold all of his record collection. However the posts still exist and the files may still available. Bernard posted great stuff like Ed Gein's Car , Th'inbred, Shattered Faith and his flyer collection. Check it out by clicking on the link.

Kick the homeless started with a roar with stuff from demos from Dag Nasty, Metallica, Exodus, Testament and too much other good punk, hardcore and metal that it's difficult to remember all of it.


Out of print punk aka Record Collectors are Pretentious Assholes- has completely disappeared as a labels were asking them to remove material they were re-releasing. I remember seeing Sloppy Seconds album Destroyed there which was recently released with bonus tracks by Kid Tested records.

While these blogs have hit the dust - all the ones in the sidebar are still active - check them out. After all, they're linked for a reason. These people generally have good taste in music and are capable of writing about it. Most of the stuff they post is out of print. If you just want a blog with a new album to download and no explanation of its content- use google, dickbrain.

Another thing that sadly disappeared last year was Futoshi Abe, who thrashed the guitar for the Japanese garage rock band Thee Michelle Gun Elephant. Thanks to Jorge and Garageland, here is their Rumble EP.

Just grabbing your Roger Miller album, Whamon Express - thanks alot. Those Roger Miller albums on SST/NAR are hard to come by. Esp. that M-3 album.

Thanks again!

Horrible blog. Just a shallow consumerist thing without the slightest bit of interest for the music, the bands, the times. You really shouldn't do that. It's a waste of others people's talent.

Pankerijada, I don't even see a description that you've written of the bands you've posted. Maybe it'd improve my blog, if I copied from wikipedia too. Not going to happen as I take in the music and write about it from my own perspective.

Donut Duck, nice to see you here.
