New album out April 17th. Psychedelitaliano.

You can't say you were into them before they were cool because they've always been cool and if you can't say you've heard them before you can now say you have...

Iron Maiden VS. Killing Joke

So which vision of sub/urban dystopia will you choose today? What did you choose in 1980? Be careful, there are hipsters and tryhards all around you, watching you, judging your actions and keeping track of your choices. Young and anxious? Too old to care? Remember, this will go on your permanent record...


You may follow the leaders if you wish, but WHO ARE THE LEADERS?...

Beautiful Black Metal - The Ruins Of Beverest & Nightbringer

 Much has been written about Foulest Semen Of A Sheltered Elite (eww) and it is almost universally accepted as an epiclassic. In the way that I consider Lykathea Aflames' Elvnefris beautifully joyful death metal, TROB's FSOASE is the beautifully ominous & melancholy side of black...

...and so is Nightbringer's Death and the Black Work for the benefit of raw, strident, chord-streaming, death-rasping black metal, which means turn down the treble or else. Of course, both are jam-packed with atmosphere and can blot out the sun for you in seconds...

Electric Wizard - Black Masses & Witchcult Today

Electric Wizard are way too sexy to take seriously but are also way too much fun to just banish from your life like a leprous heathen. Anton LeVey might not have been too impressed, but then he thought "Yes, We Have No Bananas" was Satanic. Still, this is what happens when your kids on drugs grow up with LeVey's Satanic Bible, Black Sabbath records and Hammer Horror films.

Never mind that, have you seen my huge pipe organ downstairs?...

I have no idea what Zeena LaVey thinks about all this, considering the fact that she thought her dad wasn't Satanic enough...

It's Time Once Again For The Fun Side Of Portal!

First, let's watch the Portal instrumentalists stare in awe and fascination as huge, four-legged insects crawl all over their fretboards at frightening speed whilst The Curator shows off a Portalvacative human forearm & nape. Really though, remove the price tag! You don't want us to think that the Old Ones wear Harry Potter robes from Walgreen's, do you? (laughter) But I kid Portal...(applause)

I thanked this guy and told him he was cool. (applause)

Apparently, this sums up some people's opinion of Portal, especially those who don't "get it" or are secretly, savagely jealous that they can't even play You Really Got Me much less...PORTAL! (applause)

Someone's going to have to explain this one to me...(laughter, applause)

Whoops! That's all for now! See you next time on TFSOP! Cheers!

The Finks - Fill 'er Up And Go!

Awesome, authentic 60s-sounding 90s band led by organist Jake Cavaliere who went on to The Bomboras and The Lords Of Altamont.

High School In The 70s Was Just Like Dazed & Confused

It was for me, at least. I was the kid in the glasses. This record was a staple. Get high with your girlfriend. Play Space Station #5 for her. Life is good. Enjoy it while you can.

Nostradamus Was A Plague Doctor

  Can't get over that.

As you yourself ponder the ramifications, listen to this Blackened Epic Black Metal recording by Owl and let the whole creepy experience remind you that you need to drink some coffee, right now...this time, without the whisky.
