one hit

the icarus line - 'up against the wall motherfuckers'

i’ve been meaning to review the entire record for about six hundred and sixty some odd days now, but i never get past the first song. and holy sweet mother of creeping jesus…there is a punk rock!

imagine some lowlife, alley-livin’ ma-fuckers…now between shootin’ drugs, b&e’s, and fuckin’ bitches, these scumbags get their dirty hands on some stones and sex pistols records. you know a better way to supplement your income and support a raging crack habit than to get a gig in a rock and roll band? i can’t think of one. sloppy drums, sloppy guitars, crack-addled vocals, and hooks so catchy that they’ll stick in your head like a dirty needle…this is what i wanna hear and i get it fuckin’ loud. and when i hear the singer spit something about why can’t he “get some fo’ free,” i’m pretty sure he’s talking about drugs or pussy…maybe both. by the sound of this record, they’ll get it one way or another. yeah. and they’ll smell bad. yeah! and they're gonna get loaded. YEAH!!

As I'm listining to my purchaced (Did you hear me Johnny? Yes some shmucks still PAY for CDs! Especially good ones.) copy of Icarus Line, they remind me of something familiar... elusive until this very moment: Girls vs Boys. Must research. Be back in a minute.

I don't know what happened here. It seems that the insanity of the Icarus Line has spread even to the relative safety of this library computer. The last post I tried to leave basically said two things:

1. Johnny is a cheap tosser. Raving about the Icarus Line but ask him where he got his copy when you see him coming out of the Man Hole, the Smoking Pole, or any of the other "clubs" that he tends to frequent during storms and real real late.

2. The Icarus Line bear an uncanny resemblance to Girls vs Boys. Upon further review, there apparently is no connection. I checked this out on their site which my fair-weathered friends is... INSANE. Simple. yes. But I think I'm bleading inside my brain. Go to it

NOW. Don't look any further than this, you wasting valuable time and space...

while i am almost completely unfamiliar with girls -vs- boys, i do know that 3/4 of them came from a d.c. band called soulside...same scene and time as when fugazi was taking off.

i don't imagine they were too much into the drug thing, though i could be wrong...

but what i ain't wrong about is the icarus line's predilection for chemicals...

and ummm...what was my point?
