in case you hadnt heard, the members of bottom of the hudson were involved in a tragic accident over the weekend when their van blew a tire killing bassist trevor butler and sending drummer greg lytle to intensive care with a fractured skull. they are accepting donations via payapl to help cover some of the medical expenses. you can make a donation via paypal using both@absolutelykosher.com.

my favorite promise ring and dismemberment plan offshoot, maritime, has leaked two tracks off their upcoming record, heresy and hotel choir. both tracks are pretty awesome which makes me even more itchy for the new record.

i love the band pulp so when any reviewer likens a band to said group i usually try and pay attention. so, when mojo likened mother and the addicts to pulp – awesome – and franz ferdinand – cant stand em – i had to at least give em a try. here’s the problem when some reckless reviewer likens a band to both a band i like and one i cant stand, i can only hear the band i cant stand. i got hang ups, i know. at this point i dont hear pulp other than the fact that they may share the same accent.

their new record science fiction illustrated is being released in the us via chemikal underground.
