Re: coverfight

Oh and just to say if people think I was mocking Jerkatorium by adding a verse about circle jerking in kevlar armour, well I was ; but only in an admiring, appreciative, playful way. Actually, I had written those new words as part of a lyric for the fight but had not managed to do anything with the...

Re: Little green buggers (Praying Mantis reviews)

I've been shirking this whole review thing for a while, so I guess it's my turn to dive in first this week. A lot of great entries this time around.

Thank you jb, you were absolutely right to do that. None of us should have to be subjected to offensive idiot nonsense posted amid these earnest personal attestations.

Re: Effervescent (Incandescent prefight)

I didn't want to say anything but my OCD is murdering me: The cover art by 'happy triangle' is misspelled. This wouldn't bug me all that much - I think the sunset/lightbulb thing is really clever and it looks so cool that it totally makes up for the typo - but the Art Archive page has another submis...

Re: Beware of sexual cannibalism (Praying Mantis prefight)

Back in the early 90s Zoom DJ'ed the wedding reception for a friend, and the first song he played was Don Dixon's "Praying Mantis". He meant well, it was all done in good fun, but it was still (arguably) a little tacky. On the other hand, it was memorable (I guess it's the only thing I remember abou...

Jeff Rosenstock

Jeff Rosenstock I haven't felt this way about anything new I've heard since almost forever. I've been listening to his music nonstop since I first heard it a few weeks ago, and I am angry that nobody turned me on to this music earlier. Jeff Rosenstock's stuff is what I think music is supposed to sou...

Re: Handing someone an album in 2016

My goal with this is to make the process of listening to the music as hassle-free as possible. I like the idea of a USB stick because it's so easy (you don't need to type in a URL or rip a CD in order to get the mp3s), but one of my friends mentioned he'd never accept a USB from anyone for fear of g...

Re: Handing someone an album in 2016

anybody know where to get cheap USB sticks? AliExpress has them for about $2 at the lowest price for the highest volume. It would be a great solution, but that price point is just not feasible for most DIY music. The best deal I've found so far is $6.73 (free shipping) for a 5-pack of 64MB flash dr...

Handing someone an album in 2016

What is the best way to manually distribute music these days? These days I get most of my music through Bandcamp or directly from any given artist's website (also iTunes when I get a gift card from a well-meaning relative), and I imagine that a lot of us do the same or similar. But if I run into som...

How to add your band pic to your SF archive page

Some bands have a pic or logo on their archive page, and some don't. I looked around for a way to add the Jerkatorium logo to our archive page and couldn't figure it out. How do we do that?

Bump. Just a reminder that the Bowie covers are due in a little over a week.

Also I just realized that Sunday is the 7th and Monday is the 8th, so the deadline is actually Monday, February 8, 2016.

I just wanted to mention that I am eager to listen to these songs. Easy for me to say, considering I don't have to do any of the legwork, but still: c'mon, gimme gimme gimme.

So few reviews - must be a busy week for everyone. Anywhooo... Beat Senseless - Fun bassline and beat. I can't tell if the tune of the vocal melody is supposed to have any relation to the music, but I guess it doesn't really need to. Mangles - Well balanced, well performed and well produced, and som...

Re: Turn And Face The Strange: A David Bowie Tribute

I'm sure that's fine. I like the idea of having a lot of variety, but I know that some chose the same songs for the Ramones and Talking Heads tributes and that was good.
