Dressed for the H-Bomb Obit

So I just get finished writing a lengthy obit for 100 Records and Strange Reaction pulls its plug. Now there wasn’t much love around here for Strange Reaction, but it was a damn good site and I was sad to see it go. Because of Strange Reaction, I finally got to hear Dicks Can’t Swim for what it’s worth. Oh well, right?

…wrong.

Because shortly after that, Dressed For The H-Bomb pulls its plug. Now, there was a lot of love around here for that one. Malfietor’s commentaries were as insightful and intelligent as one would expect from a product of Spanish Lake. Plus, his taste in music was world class. Shit, I’m writing another obit! What’s the fuckin’ deal?

So most of the sites that inspired Last Days of Man on Earth are now gone. I still have Post Punk Junk and Something I Learned Today. I am placing bets that Eric pulls SiLT soon because he has been dropping hints for quite a while now.

There are also some great new sites that have followed me into the blogosphere. I encourage you to check out KBD Records, Good Music For Bad Bad Times, Used Bin Forever, Mein Walkman Is Kaput, Generating Steam Heat. Go now! If there is one thing we have learned as of late, they could be gone tomorrow! The time has come today!

    Nostalgia and sympathy and all that put aside – THIS IS A GAWDAMN GREAT FRIGGIN ANGRY SAMOANS VIDEO FROM THEIR BEST RECORD!

    My favorite part of it is when you see the bass drum and its got the “Back From Samoa” image on it. How kick ass is that?

    Yeah, man – they’re dropping like flies. Tesco and company were in full swing when he got hit upside by the (Beastie) man. Erik at SILT has been going it solo for a good long time, and I expect he’s just damn tired. I’m still holding out hope that he’ll post a rip of the Lung Cookies comp. before he steps out into the night, but I agree – it’s not long off. I am also sad to see Dressed for . . . and Strange Reaction bow out.

    In the meantime – keep up the good work, and watch the burnout.

    I ain’t going anywhere!

    rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated, mostly by me. I think I’ll be at it for awhile longer, just not with the precise frequency.

    That said, I’ll put $100 on me as the next to go. Who’s taking bets?

    I’ll miss Strange Reaction and Dressed For the H Bomb. And you simply can’t kill Tesco – he’s unstoppable.

    Joe – digging what you got going here. This has become a regular stop for me, along with KBD Records and Good Music for Bad, Bad Times.

    Thanks for your fine comments. Not only am I Spanish Lake proud, but I am a product of the Hazelwood school district from K-12. Hell yes. I hadn’t really checked out the Post Punk Junk but I’m digging it now, thanks.

    I will miss Dressed for the H Bomb, Strange Reaction, *and* Agony Shorthand. I hope SILT and 7 Inch Punk both hang in there.

    Joe, I know you are a big fan of the Urinals. Check out my post of “Ack Ack Ack Ack” covers!
