There wasn't a thread. So I made one. Not a huge amount to say other than I have been enjoying Bug Club today.
New Blackbraid for those who like black metal. If you don't, Blackbraid is possibly the most accessible exponent of the art working today and I recommend giving this a go, it's stunning.
New Hives for those with more rock and roll tastes.
Imagine, in 2023, getting headlines out of pretending to be shocked by the plot of The Wall: metro.co.uk/2023/05/25/roger-waters-investigated-by-german-police-after-wearing-nazi-outfit-18848034/

This was playing in the supermarket today. I suppose I might have heard it before and it not registered, but it registered today. It might be the worst song I have ever heard. I thought it must a parody of bad 80’s soft rock ballads.. or, at least, just a really terrible 80’s soft rock ballad that someone had put on for a laugh.. but it is somehow neither of those things. Don’t listen to it. It’s not bad in a good way.
So it order to get ready for three days of fun and sun (I hate the sun), I have oddly been listening to Ultravox, Soft Cell, the new Kesha Album and the Exploited.
Only one of those artists is going to be at the festival.
Chicago: Zigging and Zagging.
