This is an official statement from Jared-
"Bottom line is that faggot from Wavves didn't even hit me. Never touched me. And he should've, cuz he had a free shot.
He's coming to Atlanta October 3rd and we're gonna get ugly on him. We're gonna destroy their van, we're gonna destroy their faces, we're gonna get crazy on em'. Nasty style."
All I know is I wish I was gonna be in ATL to see this go down! I'm also gonna for sure go to Daddy's while I'm in New York- seems like the place where things happen! haha!

My girlfriend Prisilla Ray, one of vox/sexy tambourine girls of the Cute Lepers filled me in that the album is done and will be released in early December. I got a sneak preview of the album at her place the other night and I must say it was very impressive! Her two favorite songs on the album are "Dirty Baby" which bassist Kicks sings on and her second fav is "Bob Forest Song"which is about the lead vocalist and lyricist for Los Angeles Bands Thelonious Monster. They will be playing The Reverb Festival on October 3rd in Ballard so be sure and check them out!
Here's the link- Please leave a comment so they know my shit is THE SHIT!

There are a few people from Seattle coming out, so if your feeling frisky, Come!!!

The Briefs- This video came out like two plus years ago. A lot of my friends are in the crowd, I actually had to work that day otherwise I would be there!
Clorox Girls- This video is less similar, but still with the Zombies!!!
The Rip Off- A band Signed to Vice called Lullabye Arkestra. They aren't necessarily bad, but not the best either! I know way more deserving bands that need record deals!
True proof-The Northwest does it first & Best!!!
I've always loved girl groups, and it seems in the 80s there were a few that were backed by very successful men...
Mary Jane Girls- I was sold on the name! These girls were protégées of Rick James, getting there start as backup dancers/singers for his band. The only one that could really sing was Jojo. They each had a character in the group, sexy and streetwise, Leatherette,Valley girl and model. Rick James wrote and produced all there hits, check'em out!
Vanity 6/Apollonia 6- Prince suggested to his girlfriends to start a girl group, performing in lingerie, and singing very dirty lyrics, these girls get it done! Vanity, is obviously the leader, the six represents the number of boobs in the group! How clever you are Prince!
this is one of my favorite videos of all time!!!
Corina Bakker of The Tempers created this... I think its amazing!!! It pretty much covers all the bases of the Banshees running the streets today! In fact this will go down in a museum someday-A true period piece! Can you find me? ( I am standing where I actually would be- next to Pearl and Slats!)

Oakland Band, oh so cute and oh so grand! I met Andy years ago, he was in The Cuts and also Time Flys. This new project is even better, going back to a simpler sound. So, come down to the Funhouse Saturday, Sept 12 to rock out! And if anything, hit me up afterward, because these boys like to party!
So tonight is no exception.I have a running list of bands I want to see before I die- The Beat is on it! Granted I started this list when I was 16, and have checked off most of them! The Beat is amazing example of Powerpop, and if you have never listened to them check out their self titled album- its like hit after hit!
Paul Collins actually wrote the song made famous by Blondie- "Hanging on the Telephone". So washed up or not, this guy definitely made his imprint on the music scene and whether or not the show goes well or not tonight, I am still going to enjoy his presence!
The Avengers are also playing (again a legendary female fronted punk band)
This is all going down at the FUNHOUSE TONIGHT!

I was fortunate enough to meet this talented guy at a show in Seattle about 4 months ago. Pearl from Champagne Champagne introduced me. He was sober, very polite and was working hard. Its so sad to hear of his loss. His Family released this statement-
"We appreciate the kind words and support for Adam over the past few days. Due to your inquiries, in lieu of flowers, AM's family would like to suggest making donations to the following charitable organizations: National MS Society or Friendly House: http://www.friendlyhouse.net/"
