I weigh 170 pounds and 70 kilograms!

Remember when you needed some kind of clunky digital recorder thing to be a solo artist with no band? I thought this was some next level shit when I first heard of Atom and his Package. My, how far we've come. No pop culture reference or band was safe from Atom and his goofy yet catchy songs, from Slayer to the Ghetto Boys to Fugazi and even his friend Ralph, everyone got a shout out. I left a lot of the between song banter in, because not only does it provide a good time stamp, it also reminds us of why we were attracted to this quirky, funny, and slightly strange little guy named Atom.

One! King! Down!

So, I don't know too much about these guys other than they had 2 different lead singers. It always amazes me when bands have different lead singers in different parts of their career. Oh, the other thing I know is they played some hyper active solo filled metallic hardcore, and seemed to do it pretty damn well. Here's their set from the same show as the Strain footage i posted previously. I hope you get a kick out of the drama in the hallway I left in there, it's pretty hilarious.

Come crash on my shore!

The final road test for the songs that would end up on the album If It Weren't For Venetian Blinds It Would Be Curtains For Us All. Cameo appearances by some memorable local characters. What a show!
