Adam couldn’t be a prouder parent. Their debut is out on Monolithic Records and includes guest spots from the likes of Agoraphobic Nosebleed frontwoman Katherine Katz, and was mastered by Pig Destroyer’s Scott Hull.Bandcamp     Facebook

A Border Patrol agent reads the birth certificate of Alejandro, 8 — the only thing he brought with him as he and others crossed the Rio Grande near McAllen recently. Alejandro is one of more than 52,000 minors traveling without parents who’ve been caught crossing the border illegally since October. Seventy-five years ago, the St. Louis, a German trans-Atlantic liner carrying 938 Jewish refugees, was turned away from the United States and forced to return to Europe. U.S. law didn’t allow them sanctuary.  Writes author and former Dallas Morning News reporter Christine Wicker: “The St. Louis is famous now as a failure of compassion that haunts American history. Today we are preparing to send 45,000 children back to Central American countries controlled by drug cartels that routinely torture, rape and kill children who refuse to work for them. So routinely are children menaced that their families sent them away, alone, across thousands of miles on just the slimmest of hopes that they might be safe. U.S. law doesn’t allow them sanctuary.  “They walked through some of the most hostile, hot, barren, dangerous country in the world. They were sent by poor families so terrified for their safety that they paid many thousands of dollars and entrusted their children to criminals hoping they might arrive in America and be safe. “Our hearts are not touched by these children. We want the law enforced. This is our country. Ours. And we don’t have to share it. Not now. Not 75 years ago. “Yes, these are children whom we’ll send back to be raped, maimed and killed. They aren’t our children. Our children are precious.”

Which Hellraiser movies are worth watching?

Having watched all nine Hellraiser movies (yes, nine) in an epic feat of procrastination, JWZ provides a helpful summary of which ones have held up, and which ones were never very good in the first place (top pick: Hellseeker, which I’d never heard of)

Read more…

it’s when the pickings get leanest that the true acolytes shine brightest

Holy fuck! There are NINE HELLRAISERS?!  I knew there was a gaping hole in my being. Time to hit some video.

I only made it to three.  I love the first two.  The third one sucked (I actually saw it in the theater).

silby asked: Do you have plans to provide some of your notebooks and effects to an archive or library someday, or conversely do you have a specially-rigged safe that will incinerate its contents at the hour of your death?

johndarnielle:

The latter.

This one was always on the more extreme end of rock-like music you could get into circa its 1993 release date. 20+ years have not dulled its twin blades; maybe the decades have brought them into even deeper focus, given the undeniable similarities between Bill Orcutt’s reactivation/hook-hand guitar attack, just a shade removed from what he was doing here, back when HP was a duo of Adris Hoyos and B.O., sweating it out in Miami for the damp handful. It was exciting then and tonight as well. The feel of that mode of play, the whole guitar-strings-bitten-for-floss motif, is right there at the one-two kickoff of “Youth Problem” and “1986,” to my estimation the same amplified acoustic on which he returned (or at least a hollow-body, as there’s no other good way to account for the resonance or tonal totality). Hoyos is more or less buried by it, the bandwidth consumed by amplified sound, cymbals occasionally crackling overtop, removed of shape and reduced to mere blocks on a lo-res matrix. Sure, they come back via floor tom on the closing cover of Kraftwerk’s “Showroom Dummies,” dummied down for the ‘80s hardcore set this release pays such respect over (the cover art is famously some clipping of dudes in mosh estrus, turned upside down with a snipping of “Truly Tasteless Jokes” or some such offense underlining it), but this is a sawblade with one person’s name on it, likely explaining the lack of an all-in reissue – this one comes in an edition of 70, a thick, silkscreened sleeve replacing the OG’s paste-on cover, and doled out to the few, perhaps, just to get the conversation going again; a record you could never really get anyway, now returned as one you really can’t get. But did it work…? Yes, yes it did. (http://palilalia.com)
