Grave Pleasures - Joy through Death (2017)

hoes van Grave Pleasures - Joy through Death

8 januari 2018 - Mijn ontdekking van 2017. Een bescheiden meesterwerk kun je het wel noemen. Super catchy donkere wave, met een sfeertje waardoor je spontaan een scheermes in je polsen zet. In de lengte natuurlijk, en in bad.

Deze band hette vroeger Beastmilk, na een doorstart met zanger en bassist is het sinds 2015 Grave Pleasures.

Following the positive reception of Climax, Sony was interested in offering Beastmilk to join the label under Columbia Records. At the time of the offer, there were tensions between Snell and the rest of Beastmilk. Former The Oath guitarist Linnea Olsson joined Beastmilk in August 2015, shortly after the departure of drummer Paile. Linnea Olsson toured with the band as their new second guitarist in October 2015 when they joined In Solitude. In 2015 the group moved on without Snell, leaving McNerney and Arino the original members of the band. McNerney and Arino took the name Grave Pleasures. The band recruited former In Solitude member Uno Bruniusson on drums and Oranssi Pazuzu's Juho Vanhanen as session guitarist. As a five piece, including Vanhanen, Grave Pleasures recorded Dreamcrash in May 2015 with producer Tom Dalgety. Dreamcrash released on September 4, 2015 in Finland, Germany, Switzerland and Austria and October 2 in the United Kingdom and France by Columbia. Metal Blade Records handled the North American release of Dreamcrash for its November 13, 2015 release. (bron)

En dan in 2017 was daar dus Motherblood, die ik inmiddels al helemaal grijs heb gedraaid. Enjoy.

On a grieving moon
Your pleasure grave
Mother blood
A mourning wreath
Statues stoned invincible
A tomb of sons
Death's birth to all

Oh happy death
It’s been too long
I’ve come to be with you again
My friend of death
Open your arms
I’ll be your joyful native

A death eternal
A death as old as the stars
A death that’s beautiful
Death takes us out of this world
A death certifiable
A death that’s full of surprise
A death unconquerable
Death is the meaning of life

Oh happy death
It’s been too long
I’ve come to be with you again
My friend of death
Open your arms
I’ll be your joyful native

This body’s star awaits
Anoint with gorgeous decay
Let’s spin and spin in the earth
Let’s make these skeletons wail
This body’s star awaits
Anoint with gorgeous decay
Let’s spin and spin in the earth
Let’s make these skeletons wail

hoes van Syndrome 81 - Seul contre tous

5 december 2017 - Een soort Criminal Damage, maar dan uit Frankrijk. Oi door hipsters!

370 | 0 | | | | | barbed wire for decoration

Tu craches sur ta ville que tu ne reconnais plus
Tu marches sur les traces d'un paradis perdu
Tu vomis tes amis tu ne les comprends plus
Reste des souvenirs d'une époque révolue

Du poison dans les veines
Substitut à l'enfer

Tu rumines ce passé qui pollue tes pensées
Terminé ces soirées tout le monde a déserté
Éreinté par la vie hanté par les regrets
Tu cherches une raison de ne pas basculer

Du poison dans les veines
Substitut à l'enfer

Tu traînes dans les rues à la dérive
T'es seul contre tous
Cette vie te pousse au suicide
Chaque jour un peu plus

Seul contre tous, t'es seul contre tous

They customized their gear and synchronized
They flame out in the streets with flame in their eyes
Guerrilla operator ain't heard of cool
Check out any wall, one hundred punks rule
One hundred punks rule

A hundred punks run with London town
Down Wardour Street to the Soho Sound
Don't sleep all week only when they fall down

A hundred Rumble boys and Tumble girls
Protected by steel in a private world
Tomorrow's famous faces advertise today
And the studs on their back say
One hundred punks rule

A hundred punks run the loaded gun
They look so sharp they look like one
If you ain't got the look you'll never be one

A hundred punks run with total suss
A hundred good mates you know you can trust
There's never no bother and there's no fuss
Check out any wall, one hundred punks rule
One hundred punks rule

And Jimmy's no.101 knows one day he'll be One
Watch him, watch him go!

A hundred punks run the leather army
I know whose by my side not at home with TV
Even when I'm down I hear them sing for me
Check out any wall, one hundred punks rule
One hundred punks rule

Check out any wall, one hundred punks rule
One hundred punks rule
Check out, one hundred punks rule O.K.

Suicidal Tendencies - Institutionalised (1983)

hoes van Suicidal Tendencies - Institutionalised

7 oktober 2017 - institutionalized ˌɪnstɪˈtjuːʃ(ə)n(ə)lʌɪzd/ "the danger of discrimination becoming institutionalized"

391 | 0 | | | | | barbed wire for decoration

Ik schaam me kapot als ik mijn dochters moet uitleggen dat je nou eenmaal geacht wordt naar het damestoilet te gaan als je een luier wil verschonen. Ik schaam me kapot als ik straks aan ze moet uitleggen dat het nu eenmaal normaal is dat je als man meer verdient voor hetzelfde werk dan als je vrouw bent. Ik schaam me kapot als mijn kinderen van 4 en 5 te maken krijgen met de racistische karikatuur van zwarte piet. Ik vind het verschrikkelijk dat mijn dochters het risico lopen dat ze opgroeien in een omgeving waarin het normaal is dat je door huidskleur, geslacht, beperking, seksuele voorkeur, 'afwijkend' gedrag of anders, meer je best moet doen dan een ander om hetzelfde te bereiken als zij die geen moeite hoeven doen om te passen in de consensus.

Fuck jou met je ontkenning van geïnstitutionaliseerde ongelijkheid: fuck jou met je zwarte piet. Fuck jou met je sexisme. Fuck jou met je vooroordeel. Fuck jou met je traditie. Maar bovenal: fuck jou en fuck iedereen die te bekrompen is om open te staan voor voortschrijdend inzicht. Ongeveer precies 100 jaar geleden waren het types als jij die zeiden dat vrouwen geen stemrecht moesten krijgen, want traditie. Ze hadden het mis. Over ongeveer precies 100 jaar zijn het de kinderen van onze achterkleinkinderen die zich met lachend ongeloof verbazen over de wij van nu, met onze tradities. Ze hebben gelijk.

institutionalized

ˌɪnstɪˈtjuːʃ(ə)n(ə)lʌɪzd/

adjective

past participle: institutionalized; past participle: institutionalised

  1. 1.

    "the danger of discrimination becoming institutionalized"

Sometimes I try to do things
And it just doesn't work out the way I wanted to
And I get real frustrated
And I'm like, I try hard to do it

And I'm like, take my time
And it doesn't work out the way I wanted to
It's like, I concentrate on real hard but it doesn't work out
And everything I do and everything I try it never turns out

It's like, I need time to figure these things out
There's always someone there going, 'Hey, Mike
You know, we've been noticing
You've been having a lot of problems lately'

'You know, you should, maybe, get away
And like, maybe you should talk about it, you'll feel a lot better'
And I go, 'No, it's okay, you know I'll figure it out
Just leave me alone I'll figure it out
You know I'll just work it out myself'

And they go, 'Well you know if you want to talk about it
I'll be here you know and you'll probably feel a lot better
If you talked about it, so why don't you talk about it'
I go, 'No, I don't want to I'm okay, I'll figure it out myself'
And they just keep bugging me and they just keep bugging me
And it builds up inside

You're gonna be institutionalized
You'll come out brainwashed with bloodshot eyes
You won't have any say
They'll brainwash you until you see their way

I'm not crazy, institution
You're the one who's crazy, institution
You're driving me crazy, institution

They stuck me in an institution
Said it was the only solution
To give me the needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy, myself

I was in my room and I was just like staring at the wall
Thinking about everything
But then again I was thinking about nothing
And then my mom came in and I didn't even know she was there

She called my name and I didn't even hear it
And then she started screaming, 'Mike, Mike'
And I go, 'What, what's the matter''
And she goes, 'What's the matter with you''

I go, 'There's nothing wrong, mom'
And she goes, 'Don't tell me that, you're on drugs'
I go, 'No, mom, I'm not on drugs, I'm okay
I was just thinking you know, why don't you get me a Pepsi'

And she goes, 'No, you're on drugs
I go, 'Mom, I'm okay, I'm just thinking'
She goes, 'No you're not thinking, you're on drugs
Normal people don't act that way'

I go, 'Mom just give me a Pepsi, please'
All I want is a Pepsi and she wouldn't give it to me
All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi
And she wouldn't give it to me, just a Pepsi

They give you a white shirt with long sleeves
Tied around you're back, you're treated like thieves
Drug you up because they're lazy
It's too much work to help a crazy

I'm not crazy, institution
You're the one who's crazy, institution
You're driving me crazy, institution

They stuck me in an institution
Said it was the only solution
To give me the needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy, myself

I'm sitting in my room and my mom and my dad came in
They pulled up a chair and they sat down, they go
'Mike, we need to talk to you'
I go, 'Okay, what's the matter''

They go, 'Me and your mom have been noticing lately
That you've been having a lot of problems
You've been going off for no reason and we're afraid
You're gonna hurt somebody
We're afraid you're gonna hurt yourself'

'So we decided that it would be in your interest
If we put you somewhere
Where you could get the help that you need'
And I go, 'Wait, what are you talking about, we decided
My best interest, how can you know what's my best interest is''

'How can you say what my best interest is'
What are you trying to say, I'm crazy'
When I went to your schools, I went to your churches
I went to your institutional learning facilities'
So how can you say I'm crazy''

They say they're gonna fix my brain
Alleviate my suffering and my pain
But by the time they fix my head
Mentally, I'll be dead

I'm not crazy, institution
You're the one who's crazy, institution
You're driving me crazy, institution

They stuck me in an institution
Said it was the only solution
To give me the needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy, myself

It doesn't matter, I'll probably get hit by a car anyway

The Exploited - Blown Out Of The Sky (1990)

hoes van The Exploited - Blown Out Of The Sky

1 september 2017 - Wist je dat Johnny Rotten en The Four Tops bijna bij dezelfde vliegtuigcrash het loodje hadden gelegd? Ik ook niet.

453 | 0 | | | | | barbed wire for decoration

Het is vandaag Exploited-dag in huize Toffe Nummers, van Punk's Not Dead via Troops Of Tomorrow en Death Before Dishonour bij The Massacre aangekomen. Niet per sé de beste, maar wel de plaat waardoor ik in het najaar van 1990 (ik was 15) aan de punk ben geraakt. En in 1991 heb ik ze zien spelen in Midgard (Middelburg) en niet lang daarna -of kort ervoor, daar wil ik vanaf zijn- ook een keer in De Piek (Vlissingen). Die keer in Middelburg is er eentje voor een toekomstig artikeltje, dat was namelijk met een voorprogramma van lokale Zeeuwse punkers The Bozo's die toen een hele toffe demo uithadden. Tenminste, in mijn herinnering was die tof. Inclusief een ode aan, jawel, The Exploited met het nummer Action Man. Maar die tape heb ik helaas niet meer, ik ben nog steeds op zoek.

Terug naar The Massacre: er staat een nummer op over Pan Am Flight 103 ("Lockerbie"). Johnny Rotten heeft die vlucht gemist omdat zijn vrouw te langzaam was met inplakken, en The Four Tops omdat ze zich hadden verslapen.

Tell us the truth
We got a right to know
Forty minutes into the air
Then came the final blow
Blown out of the sky
Blown out of the sky
270 victims of flight 103
A year has passed already
And they still withhold the facts from me
Blown out of the sky
Blown out of the sky
They knew two weeks before
That atrocity was planned
But all the people at the ambassady did
Was change their own flight plans
Blown out of the sky
Blown out of the sky
31000 feets relaxing with a drink
How were they meant to know
That death was nearly theirs
A bomb was planned in the cargo hold
Put on by a person unknown
But the government will not admit
That they knew two months before

Pay no mind
Pay no mind
Its just a warning sign


Bruised and broken
I guess im paying the toll
For running out of control

Pay no mind
Pay no mind
Its just a warning sign

Stubborn, but what are you gonna do?
Failure button on repeat
Impatience has finally got me beat

Hard headed
Good fun
No oversight
Damage done

Poison Idea - When I Say Stop (1993)

hoes van Poison Idea - When I Say Stop

25 mei 2017 - Al heel lang wil ik een stukje over PI schrijven. Het is een van mijn favorieten, een van de bands die ik probeer compleet te krijgen in mijn collectie. We Must Burn is een ernstig ondergewaarde PI, en dat onrecht gaan we vandaag een beetje rechtzetten.

447 | 0 | | | | | barbed wire for decoration

Poison Idea, dat is toch Pick Your King, Kings Of Punk en Feel The Darkness. Maar in 1993 was daar We Must Burn, met als staartje de 10" Religion & Politics Part 1 & 2 die is opgenomen in dezelfde sessie. Beetje meer gepolijst, beetje meer metal, maar nog steeds 100% Poison Idea. Ik vind hem heel erg goed, met Pick Your King en Feel The Darkness misschien wel mijn favoriet. Hoewel dat morgen alweer anders kan zijn, natuurlijk.

Er schijnt een film aan te komen in de zomer van 2017. Als je nou zin hebt gekregen om iets van ze te kopen kan dat rechtstreeks bij de band via poisonidea.bigcartel.com. Verder leesvoer bij de NY Times (!).

Sounds of marching, bolts of lighting
Everyone watching, cold shock of frightening
Kill that light turn it off
And when I say go hit the floor
Turn the pulse rate it up all the way
When I say stop shut it down
And fake a fall
All for one and one for all
The story's done, the act was real
How does it feel?
You played your hand out and took your dive
You lost your game, but they're still alive
Can't get any faster, she told me so
The chance of a lifetime, isn't it though?
When I say wrong, say right
When I say cum, unload
When I say day, say night
Watch the veins in my head explode

Foo Fighters - Wasting Light (2011)

hoes van Foo Fighters - Wasting Light

3 mei 2017 - Holy crap. Wacht, we spelen voor de grap even de plaat na. Iedereen klaar? 1-2-3-4!

468 | 0 | | | | | barbed wire for decoration

Wasting Light is the Foo Fighters' seventh album, released in 2011. While on tour with Them Crooked Vultures, Dave Grohl thought of the masterplan for when FF returned: doing it in his garage (where he used to do demos), with no electronic equipment, under the production of Butch Vig (his first full album with Grohl since Nirvana’s Nevermind) and with its production accompanied by a career-spanning documentary on the band. Tour guitarist Pat Smear was also back as an official member 12 years after his departure. Wasting Light earned much critical acclaim, even winning five Grammy Awards, and became the Foo’s first #1 at the Billboard 200. (bron)

Nirvana - Lounge Act (1991)

hoes van Nirvana - Lounge Act

24 april 2017 - Als iemand mij 25 jaar geleden zou hebben verteld dat ik ooit iets positiefs over Nirvana zou zeggen, had ik haar voor gek verklaard. Ik was in 1991 namelijk met hele andere dingen bezig.

448 | 0 | | | | | barbed wire for decoration

Nu is het niet zo dat ik opeens helemaal idolaat ben van Nirvana. Extreme Noise Terror blaast ze nog steeds omver, met elk willekeurig nummer, op elk willekeurig moment van de dag. Dat hele depressieve akoestische dat op Nevermind staat, ik moet er niks van hebben. Maar oké, het duurt een jaar of wat en dan ben ik overtuigd. Er staan een paar echt toffe nummers op.

Weliswaar geen Nirvana, maar ik vind daarna Grohl met zijn FF erg gaaf. Dat komt misschien ook doordat Pat Germs Smear erin meedoet.

Truth - covered in security
I can't let you smother me
I'd like to, but it couldn't work
Trading off and taking turns
I don't regret a thing
And I've got this friend, you see
Who makes me feel and I
Wanted more than I could steal
I'll arrest myself, I'll wear a shield
I'll go out of my way to prove I still
I still smell her on you

Don't - tell me what I wanna hear
Afraid of never knowing fear
Experience anything you need
I'll keep fighting jealousy
Until it's fucking gone

And I've got this friend, you see
Who makes me feel and I
Wanted more than I could steal
I'll arrest myself, I'll wear a shield
I'll go out of my way to prove I still
I still smell her on you

Truth! - covered in security
I can't let you smother me
I'd like to but it couldn't work
Trading off and taking turns
I don't regret a thing
And I've got this friend, you see
Who makes me feel and I
Wanted more than I could steal
I'll arrest myself, I'll wear a shield
I'll go out of my way to make you a deal
We've made a pact to learn from who
Ever we want without new rules
We'll share what's lost and what we grew
They'll go out of their way
To prove they still
Still smell her on you
