The new HOUSEHOLD EP “Elaines” is out, and it’s very much in a league with their excellent past compositions, with with a slightly softer core than moves them a step away from, say, The Urinals and marginally more into Young Marble Giants/Marine Girls territory – while remaining very much their own thing.
They employ customer-friendly pricing, too – the whole 6-song thing can be downloaded for a mere 3 bucks here. There’s vinyl too.
Look for an interview with the band in the upcoming Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine #1, which is nearly done and goes to the printer next week.
100 FLOWERS (!) playing “Salmonella” live at The Anti-Club in Los Angeles, 1983. I saw many a band take this stage a few years later, but 100 Flowers were long gone by that time and only “Trotsky Icepick” remained.
I spent the better part of a quiet Tuesday evening holed up in a room creating the mix you can now download here – DYNAMITE HEMORRHAGE RADIO PODCAST, Edition #13. I’ve been putting these together about every two weeks or so for the past five months, but if this is your first one, well – welcome to the show. I play songs I like, play-act at being a “DJ”, mix-n-match songs on my Mac, talk into a computer, and generally try to keep all the shows to about an hour. You can download all 12 of the past editions here.
This one’s got new stuff from RAW PRAWN, THE DELPHINES, CANDY HIGHWAY, SOCK PUPPETS and COLLEEN GREEN, along with super sub-underground weirdness, punk, garage, pop & more from The Moodists, Electric Eels, Icky Boyfriends, The Fall, Solger, Crash Course In Science and a bunch of other winners.

Happy New Year, and hello there ladies and gentlemen. Hung over? Nothing to do today? Howsabout streaming or downloading my music podcast DYNAMITE HEMORRHAGE RADIO right about now? This is the 3rd edition in almost as many weeks. Not sure I can keep up that sort of breakneck pace, but here’s hoping.
This edition, recorded on the last day of 2012, forgoes any sort of best-of-the-year malarkey, and instead plays a mix of the new and the old. Mostly the old. The back-announce parts were recorded while I had a gnarly cold, which I still have, and on a brand-new microphone that I suspect doesn’t add a whole lot to the proceedings, but which made me feel like an important radio disc jockey in any case.
If you missed the first show or the second show, please click on the links to grab’ em! And then download Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio #3 and lemme know which songs most made you want to stage dive and get into fistfights.

One of the more phenomenal new bands of the last year is Austin, TX’s SPRAY PAINT. To date they’ve put out two 45s of minimalist, splattering art punk that follow and expand upon the Urinals/A-Frames model. This one’s “Pro Knife” from the first of the two singles, and came out last year.
