Moody as ever:
Godspeed You! Black Emperor
‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!
“Having emerged from hiatus at the end of 2010, GYBE picked up right where they left off, immediately re-capturing the sound and material that had fallen dormant in 2003 and driving it forward with every show of their extensive touring over the last 18 months. The new album presents the fruits of that labour: evolved and definitive versions of two huge compositions previously known to fans as “Albanian” and “Gamelan”, now properly titled as “MLADIC” and “WE DRIFT LIKE WORRIED FIRE” respectively. Accompanied by the new drones (stitched into the album sequence on CD; cut separately on their own 7″ for the LP version), GYBE have offered up a fifth album that we feel is as absolutely vital, virulent, honest and heavy as anything in their discography.

“This is it, the final Makeout!
Thats right, on the 3 year anniversary of weird, this is the last installment!!
Happening Thursday, April 18 at Whistle Stop Bar
We are super excited Maniqui Lazer will be playing!! After an extended hiatus, this trio of weirdos,
originally from Mexicali, is just beginning to freak people out in person again. Their mix of experimental electronic dance-punk has already made a mark on the face of subculture and they are back in full force! Members include Valentin Torres of Vampire Slayer and Jung Sing, the wildly drummer of the now disbanded All Leather. Jung and Manaqui Lazer bassist Rodo also play in a band called Black Cells.
We are also very pleased Machino will be part of the night! – A previous member of the post hardcore band Mae Machino and the DJ duo Loud Noises. His electronica offerings have hit Beatport’s charts more than once. We are looking forward to his experiments!
The three amigos of Moonshake will be manning the DJ booth into the night! These are the cats that ran the long running Moonshake parties at Kadan, before the bar closed down. Lee Reynolds, Mark E. Quark, and Dazzla are masters of dance party shenanigans!! Prepare for “an adventure into future disco, spacey house, and techey grooves!” –Bobby Bray SD Reader
