Song Of The Day: Bitch Magnet – Mesentery

Nell’attesa del Nightmare Before Xmas. Per chi, nella vita, fosse stato distratto da mille e troppe cazzate. Grazie ai Bitch Magnet e Temporary Residence.

Holy shitballs! This is sincerely a dream come true for us. One of the most influential and truly seminal underground rock bands of the past 25 years is finally getting the revisited and resurrected love they deserve. Seriously, if it weren’t for Bitch Magnet, the 90s punk and indie rock landscape would look and sound very different. Mogwai, Don Caballero, Superchunk, Sunn O))), Rodan, June of 44 and countless others owe a debt to Bitch Magnet. After being out-of-print for nearly 15 years, we are ecstatic to bring you Bitch Magnet’s entire recorded output, collected in one mind-blowing 3xCD or 3xLP package! Remastered from the original, restored analog master tapes and packaged in stunning triple gatefolds packed with dozens of rare and never-before-seen photos and flyers, this is a sight and sound to behold! Trust us, DO NOT SKIP THIS! This is a pre-order and will ship on or around November 15. Also, don’t miss Bitch Magnet’s rare reunion gigs in Europe, Asia and the UK, including an appearance at ATP!

All Tomorrow’s Parties

Visto che siamo appena rientrati dall’ATP 2009 (Shellac, Tiersen e Dianogah su tutti, qui una sintesi dettagliata), pare opportuno ricordare l’appuntamento del 24 Giugno all’Edinburgh International Film Festival. Sarà, infatti, l’occasione per assistere alla premiere di un film sul festival da noi tanto amato. Tra le (numerosissime) esibizioni sulla pellicola quelle di Mogwai, Slint, Battles, Sonic Youth, Dirty Three e Grinderman. In più, per chi mai avesse assisistito ad un’edizione dell’All Tomorrow’s Parties, la possibilità di vedere come si trasforma un villaggio vacanze in location per concerti.
