Celebrating the dark prince, forces of evil, the original revolutionary, chaos, pain, hate, suffering, misery, the fallen one, Realized Icon Volume 2 explores a paradise attempting to realize Lucifer in his essence.

"Realized Icon is not only a study of the last of the true icons, but a study in the love, obsession, fanaticism and inspiration that these icons instill within us. Here we explore what it means to think you know someone better than you know yourself, a love so fantastically one-sided and ubiquitous that it can let you down. They carve out their own place in time in which the masses will inevitably stand in awe. Our icons wield a great power that we have elected to bestow upon them. They do not abuse their power but simply relish in the light, choosing to shine it back upon us. These icons conjure our blood, sweat and tears. Icons also carry the knowledge that at any moment it could all topple over but true greatness will walk the line anyways. Cultural insurgents amassing inconceivable followings, these are our icons fully realized.  ”

     In the middle of a banal weekend late night/early morning I was with with two friends having a cigarette in front of their apartment in east LA. Their upstairs neighbor, an older guy (we’ll say 45-ish) is coming home with another man, approximately his same age, adorned with a leather cowboy hat and no shirt. The neighbor invited my friends and I up to his apartment to “Abuse hard drugs and hang out” with him and his friend. We politely declined such an invitation and they went on their way just as happy (presumably to use hard drugs and hang out), nothing was getting in the way of their good time. Those guys definitely listened to Sisters Of Mercy and sometimes when I think about it, I really want to believe we would’ve just been hanging out with some new friends, abusing free hard drugs, listening to “A Rock And A Hard Place” but I think we all know it would’ve been more. 

     If I was using footnotes this would probably be where I noted that that later that night my friends and I wandered to a 24-hour laundromat to play Ms. Pac-Man and that much later (months) said neighbor would go on to flood my friends apartment when he left his kitchen sink on all night filling his brita.

     My friend Diaz has a sick SOM shirt, from 93’ tour when Eldritch was presumably at the height of his madness and marking what would inevitably be the beginning of the end. It’s 300% ill and I’d love to cop it for a fair price. Email my dude at oldgreymarestomp@gmail.com and tell him to show me some love and conduct business.

Nod To Andrew Eldritch for predicating a style that the King himself would later co-opt for his Dangerous era look, even though Eldritch himself has evolved into a Pinhead decked in casual wear type vibe.

Recently S U R V I V E offered up their newest serving to the world, MF064. A more expansive approach to their own form of aural melange, MF064 sees the company experimenting with sounds more lush and deeper in character than anything before. S U R V I V E is becoming proficient in their work within the negative space of music. Clocking in at just under 20 minutes, great of course, really just leaves me wanting more and my iTunes sending me right in to Paganicons isn’t really doing it for me, although great in it’s own way. Indulge yourself and tune in to S U R V I V E.
MF064 is out now on Monofonus Press.

Captive has released a video for “The Fool”, from their demo (Calico Grounds) which has sold out two pressings as well as their upcoming debut LP (Calico Grounds) due out in April.

Members of Total Abuse, Rayon Beach, the Snobs etc… Captive walks a different path than some of the more abrasive sounds attributed to their previous projects. Nods to the early 80s work of the Cure, any Daniel Ash/Peter murphy stuff, and countless other groups on the bleaker side of the second british invasion.

Captive is building a body of work more in tune with the past than any of the psuedo-goth revivalist acts that have been popping everywhere that Captive is likely to be associated with. Truly bleak romance, vocals howling along with ethereal guitar sounds. Airy synth parts and driving bass hold the anchor for the floating world Captive creates in their music.

"The  Fool" video is a testament to a sound and aesthetic that has long been lost through overt use of occult imagery, black everything, never ending electronic grime, contrived sadness/depravity. Captive does a style better and more earnestly than any of their contemporaries.

The internet is a wasteland.

Call me crazy but I’m not a fan.

But sometimes I second guess myself and think I’m wrong. What if they’re actually great, but I’m never sure. I am sure that either way that I can’t stand Jim Morrison.

Shout out to Canada.
