Nightbringer - s/t 7"

Picked this record up from the No Idea Records website while purchasing a few other things. The description reads "Nightbringer is bastard hardcore. Taking equal parts from the holy trinity of Motorhead, 70s Detroit rock n roll, and Japanese hardcore". SOLD!

This record rules. Blazing fast hardcore/rock 'n roll from ex members of Ruination, Earthmover and Life Set Struggle. Record has 3 songs that clock in in a little under 7 minutes total. Not sure how many people will get this comparison but they remind me of one of my favorite Buffalo bands of all time No Time Left. Loud and fast and probably likely to incite living room circle pits. I wanted to put up a new review tonight before I went to bed but this record has me so pumped up I don't think I'll be getting much sleep for a while. I don't have much more information about these guys but I will be keeping my eyes peeled for more releases and hopefully some live shows. I bet these guys tear it up live.

No pressing information on the vinyl but mine is on gray marble. Cover is folded with lyrics to the three songs inside. Also includes a download code for the 3 songs plus a bonus song. 3 songs on vinyl, 4 digital and only $3.50. If you plan on doing an order with No Idea in the future do yourself a favor and throw this on. Good jams!

Floor DVD available for Pre-Order

This one is just a little piece of news. Pre-Orders for a Floor dvd have gone up at Chunklet. I am a few days late on this but I have been crazy busy so this is the first chance I have had to share the news. This is all direct from Chunklet.

"After years of toiling away in obscurity, followed by years of escalating interest during their hiatus, the legendary Florida band Floor reunited for a handful of shows in April 2010. Three different drummers. Three different sets. "Sight & Seen" is over two hours of material spanning their early dirgey/noise singles to their landmark psych/drone/pop self-titled masterpiece. Filmed over two nights at the EARL in Atlanta, Georgia, "Sight & Seen" is truly something that needs to be seen to be believed.
A multi-camera performance coupled with professionally recorded and mixed audio, "Sight & Seen" is an enveloping, droning wall of guitars. Floor's two guitarists, Anthony Vialon and Steve Brooks (of TORCHE fame), spend over two hours on stage with their various drummers. Their three drummers, Betty, Jeff and Henry, rotate through the band's lineup: crashing through their early singles, smoking the viewer with their mid-period haze and ending with the cathartic and anthemic final album.

Disc #1 of "Sight & Seen" also includes a 20 minute featurette that documents the band's history with never-before-seen live footage, photography and interviews.
Disc #2 is intended lure in both massive fans and completists alike. A data disc (which means you pop it in your computer), it includes:
--high quality audio files of both Atlanta shows (not just the one shown on disc #1) --the complete and edited film of Floor that ended up on the cutting room floor (which clocks in at over 2 hours of video)
And in addition to this, the band has opened up their video vaults to include:
--over an hour of archival footage spanning Floor's career from 1993 at Churchill's in Miami to their final shows in 2001.
"Sight & Seen" is also housed in an elaborate package which was initially used on Chunklet's landmark "Anthem" 2xDVD release by Harvey Milk in 2006. All designed by Chunklet's in-house designer, Henry H. Owings.
Mail order copies will be available on a few different 'colors' (in editions of no additional cost) and "Sight & Seen" is a one-time release of 700 never to be reissued.
All orders will ship the first week of December 2010."

I just ordered my copy. The blue mail order edition is up now. I flew down to Atlanta with my friend Aaron(Beerwolf) to see these shows. We both had a blast and came home with some mean Metallica neck. Needless to say I am very excited to get this Dvd, invite him over and re-live the amazing time we had down there.

Also of note is the Harvey Milk dvd. This band is amazing live and I will be happy to finally have this dvd in my collection.
