HOME BLITZ OUT OF PHASE on 12" vinyl LP.. all gone

It's for sale and it comes with a lyric sheet and an mp3 download. It was written, performed, and recorded by Daniel DiMaggio in Princeton, NJ and it was mastered to vinyl by Bob Weston at the Chicago Mastering Service in Chicago. What does it sound like? It sounds like the greatest album that HOME BLITZ has ever released on Richie Records // TestosterTunes.

THIS RECORD IS SOLD OUT FROM RR//TT. Try your favorite record store or online music retailer for a copy... Or buy one from the band at an upcoming performance... And if you've already placed an order, don't be afraid. Mine is a label that respects the sanctity of the paypal transaction.

Pink Reason in Brizzy

Here's a treat... it's a youtube video of Pink Reason recorded down in Brisbane, Aus. It's an uncharacteristically sunny tune called "Down on Me" and it's performed by the toughest sounding PR lineup ever assembled.. Jewel/Horseshit/Failure.

Well, the calender has just about turned over and we still haven't discussed The Load by the HOMOSTUPIDS. Time to correct that oversight. After all, this web presence was originally conceived as a fan site devoted to the Stupids. These guys been at the forefront of black-hole Skull Music ever since Handsome Steve Peffer learned to program a drum beat. It really hit the fan when he picked up an undersized bass-guitar and tracked down a couple of creeps to fill out the lineup. In a time when every twit on earth seems to get a homemade tattoo, throw reverb on his vocals, and start a band in brooklyn, Cleveland's Homostupids stand alone as the pre-eminent scuzz/hate group on the planet. The only one worth a nickel, really. Some circles have been anticipating this release for a while, as it was rumored that the whole album had been shelved. They've been fluffing us for a while with vinyl-only singles of questionable value on obscure labels and rare appearances outside of Ohio, but this is pretty much it... the second full-sized record. It's got about a dozen tracks on it, and it just barely exploits 24 inches of playable surface at 45 rpms. It gives some nods to GG, it's provocative, and it shows some unexpected swagger. Besides, every single record ever made would be improved if it had 'Flies Die' on it...

Well here's a real piece of art. It's a photograph of some buzzing amps that the Mega Jam Booze Band uses to rehearse one tune at a time. And there's a couple drums too. Some guitars as well. Anyway, you readers can expect some update at some time. There's a lot to discuss.. new Homostupids LP "The Load", Purling Hiss, some live Home Blitz dates, KV trucking out to the midwest, etc. You might as well know that the Puerto Rico Flowers are resurfacing in Australia. Just use google to learn more about those topics. Here's that photo..
