That Best Coast song is cool - reminds me loads of this Merch song https://katorgaworks.bandcamp.com/track … ss-apology

Someone do this band ffs!

Pax Indigo and Wedding tapes are essential imo and I haven't seen either around for a while, so probably then yeah?

Rituals sounds great - can only turn up a couple of very low rips on YouTube - is there a DVD release?

Did an interview with Drool about their game THUMPER - that will most certainly feature on my Games of the Year, alongside Titanfall 2 and Hitman.

Going down to Worthing soon to see some family, just wondering if anyone has any record stores or other stuff to check out (arcades/pinball are very much of interest to me) - cheers!

On Saturday I'm attending a Children of the Corn marathon (starting at 10am), which will be horrible and wonderful. I plan on reaching a zen-like inner state of "what's the point of life anyway" nihilism by the time the sun goes down.

I watched the first one quite recently for the first time - one of the greatest opening/pre-credits sequences ever but yeah, best of luck to you making it through the whole day!

Shudder has made itself worth at least one months subscription as I got to watch "Society" last night for the first time.

Recently finished reading the Dune Trilogy which I absolutely loved. Was considering reading something else for a bit but I'm probably just going to crack ahead with God Emperor of Dune.

Flyer up, Screen Wives added, and a general BUMP

yeah i picked it up earlier this week for quite cheap off cdkeys - it's perfect for me, came out of a big Destiny and then Division phase where I was just getting more and more frustrated that because I didn't have hours and hours to pour into it, I was getting left behind/being a bit useless when playing with friends.

Overwatch is just pick up and play, nicely balanced, doesn't require you to be pinpoint accurate, more just know the heroes/maps and how they can overcome other strategies used by the other team - it's kind of like if Nintendo tried to make a class based multiplayer FPS (and had the first idea about making a modern internet multiplayer game). So far I'm loving McCree quite a bit.

The Neon Demon didn't really do anything for me I have to say - we saw it at a Picturehouse cinema where they were doing a Nicholas Winding Refn presents.... the films that influenced The Neon Demon and the films were....

Videodrome
Under the Skin
Carrie
Suspiria
Body Double
Mulholland Drive

and to be quite honest it did just feel like disjointed tiny remakes of bits from those films to me.

Molasses - one of the best bands in the UK for the last few years especially if you enjoy twisty, twangy Unwound style post-HC.
https://molassesuk.bandcamp.com/

Big Machine - Breather-Resist meets Torche? Churning big riffs, plenty of hooks and the occasional blast beat from this Manc 2 piece (ex-Hammers/Well-Wisher)
https://bigmachine1.bandcamp.com/

Pijn - Sad and slow moving descends into frantic and metallic. (ex-Old Skin/Doctrines)

Skylark - A healthily noisy post-hardcore racket, like Shotmaker, Fugazi, Karp, Hoover and the like. This is the heavy, twisty and weird, like the band members.
http://skylark.bandcamp.com/

Screen Wives - Panic Ridden Post Hardcore. Presents-era Jerome's Dream all smashed together with mid 90s Dischord.
https://screenwives.bandcamp.com/

Can you remember his Discogs name Rob? I'll block him from buying off me.

Edit: found him but it might be an old name

barbanutria

That's the guy and the same ID. If you google him there's posts about him on a few forums. I'm sure he's got a new handle nowadays. Total scum.

a couple of years back I had facebook messages from Santiago Martinez telling me he'd bought a record off us (SL) and we hadn't sent it, absolutely no evidence and after I told him to fuck off after a couple of weeks of tedious messages I then got a message to Man Hands saying the same thing. Got to blam him which was pretty good.

So here it is - a new record by us. You can stream it via the link below and download if you fancy (chucking us a couple of quid entirely up to you).

There's an option to buy the 12" but in the interest of full disclosure we are just waiting for a spot of printing to come back and wont ship these out until mid next week.

Also available soon from SuperFi Records, Deadwoodrecords, Boslevan Records and Dingleberry records and distribution who all helped to put out the vinyl version.

Cheers!

DUSKERS - wherein you pilot drones using a command prompt in order to salvage derelict ships in deep space. The whole thing has this amazing retrofuturist vibe to it. So far so good!

It was actually an NME article on emo around 2001 that got me into quite a lot of good stuff, lots of Dischord bands, The Promise Ring, The Get Up Kids. I guess it was around the time stuff like Rival Schools, Hundred Reasons and Jimmy Eat World were pretty big.

i remember that article getting a lot of discussion on the old kerrang emo forum smile

Yeah I was having a conversation with a guy at work about how few genuinely good platform games there are, which is weird because they're so popular and so good when done right. Maybe nobody thinks they can live up to Mario 64.

If you have access to a 360 or XBONE and haven't already played it - hugely recommend Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts.

Also - ex Rare folk who made Banjo Kazooie are making new game Youka Laylee about two animals, one who wears the other in a back pack who do platforming in colourful cartoon environments.
