Wow, I just spent all this time writing a post and then blogger deleted the whole thing. I can't type it all over again. INSTEAD I AM GOING TO YELL IT AT YOU.
HERE WE GO AGAIN
MAYBE THIS ONE WILL BE BETTER ANYWAY
NIC HUGHES FROM CHANNELS 3 AND 4 AND SHEARING PINX COMPILED AND RELEASED IT
BUY IT HERE. IT IS REALLY GOOD.
BANDS FROM PORTLAND (HUSLTER WHITE, WET CONFETTI, SLEETMUTE NIGHTMUTE)
BANDS FROM OLYMPIA (JOEY CASIO)
BANDS FROM SAN FRANCISCO (DEATH SENTENCE: PANDA!, DENVER (THE LAST DINOSAUR) YELLOW SWANS, WAIT MAYBE YELLOW SWANS IS FROM PORTLAND)
BANDS FROM VANCOUVER (CHS 2,3,4, ETC..., FUCK ME USA, BAKELITE)
BANDS FROM SEATTLE (there aren't any bands from seattle on this comp)
Why? Seattle sucks. More on that (and some Seattle bands that don't suck) in a couple days.
HERE ARE SOME SAMPLE TRACKS
(GO TO LINK ABOVE AND BUY THIS CD AND ALSO CHECK OUT ALL THE DIFFERENT ARTISTS ON THAT LABEL)
LATEX BRIDE "PUPPET HEAD" (from CA)
ZEUS "BOULDERS OF OLYMPUS"(from mt. olympus)
CHANNELS 3 x 4 "MEDS INSTEAD"
FUCK ME USA "WAR PIG (LIVE)"
Whoo. Let's take a breather. Apparently there is another band that just started up in the UK also called Fuck Me USA. That is mostly a big case of whatevers. The band name comes from a Gang of Four song, and FMUSA (CA) broke up before they ever put anything out, save for a limited split 7" w/ Chs. 3x4. I don't know much about this FMUSA (UK) fellow, save for his website claims he is playing Glastonbury festival this summer, so before this new band implants itself in everyone's mind as the only band called F.M.U.S.A. I want to remind the people what went down in the middle part of the first half of the first decade of the 21st century, when some kids started up some band, to open up for Glass Candy, or something, in Vancouver, or Victoria, or somewhere.
FUCK ME USA "INFINITE SLOPE"
FUCK ME USA "TAN THIGH"
THIS GUY MIGHT PUT OUT THE LOST F.M.U.S.A. (CA) ALBUM.
MAYBE HE IS TOO BUSY PUTTING OUT RELEASES BY SOME OF THE HOTTEST BANDS IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE RIGHT NOW. (And maybe it is all just too 2003)
ANYWAY, BUG HIM INTO PUTTING THE ALBUM OUT. I WANT TO HEAR IT REAL BAD.
TELL 'EM PARTY ON INFINITE EARTHS SENT YOU.
(Sorry about the Z-sharing, one day I'll get the hosting properly sorted.)

I just peeped the video for the song "Je Veux Te Voir" from Yelle on Big Stereo.
Cute graphics, cute shorts, and clever/cute French lyrics fool you into merely being mesmerized. Then the last thirty seconds drop with a Bubble Yum, mutant Hi-NRG, flying keytar rainbow explosion and you realize that nothing will ever be the same again.
One benefit of having the lyrics scrolling on the bottom of the video is that when you play the song out everyone knows the lyrics and its easier to bring the house down:
La New Shit have the Disco D remix of this track.

My name is Sam. I DJ every Wednesday night at Ruff Gemz in Seattle. This is my music blog.
Let's get started.
I will be posting some actual jams soon but first, let's try a little exercise.
When I first watched the following sweet video of some live Slayer footage set to an 8-bit/chiptunes cover of some Slayer I felt like I was playing a version of Excite Bike that was really sped up and played with a special controller that would shock you if you over-heated your engine or crashed.
Like that game James Bond plays in Never Say Never Again. Which I've never seen, but I am familiar with the meme, you dig?
LET'S TRY AND WATCH 8-BIT ANGEL OF DEATH VIDEO AND AN EXCITE BIKE VIDEO AT THE SAME TIME.
How did it feel? I feel good.
