The Bloodtypes, JUST YOUR TYPE

The Bloodtypes Just Your Type [Audio:http://www.gravediggerslocal.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/The-Bloodtypes-Just-Your-Type.mp3] Despite being type O-Negative (seriously. I have the card to prove it) I never was into slow trudge. I like my blood to be flowing freely, like the punk rock of the Bloodtypes on ‘Just Your Type.’ Glad in white that is liberally splattered with the stuff keeping you …

Labretta Suede & the Motel 6, DUMB & DIRTY

Labretta Suede and the Motel 6, Dumb & Dirty Official Site    Let’s face it – there’s a widespread pandemic of men not having any game anymore. I liken it to the advent of modern video gaming, funny enough, most notably with the introduction of the X-Box. Gaming became less an outlet of gamers and …

Bradley Tatum, IT’S A BEAUTIFUL WORLD

Bradley Tatum It’s a Beautiful World Official Site If thirteen random songs were picked from thirteen random CDs off of the thirteen (in reality, ten) shelves I have in my library, the album compiled together would be, odds on, a good representation of my musical interests. It wouldn’t be a complete picture and the styles …

2011: End of the Year – The Remake…

          The Year 2011 brought us a wide collection of great music from many genres of horror music. It would be pretentious of us here at GdL16 to think that we could pick THE BEST ALBUM OF 2011. And as science has proved, lists are for suckers and shitty music blogs. …

Bad Whoremoans, SAY WHAT AGAIN

For the longest while, ‘SAY WHAT AGAIN,’ or the second Bad Whoremoans album, was widely unavailable. The first self-titled release has been spread along the internet like a cute-kitten viral video, but the second one? Until recently, many people (myself included) didn’t even know there was as second album. But, now available for less than …

The Misfits, “The Devil’s Rain”

  It’s a good horrorpunk album. It’s not a Misfits record.   Not much needs to be said but I said it anyway. You can read it after the break.

Of Quasi-Men and Vinyl

If you’ve ever listened to a lo-fi band or musician, it’s the lesser quality that adds to the music’s charm. There’s something endearing about feedback or fuzz, something that is lost when the music is smoothed out, de-loused and returned from the dry-cleaners. However, CDs don’t suck. Personally, I prefer digital music. I like CDs …

Kepi Ghoulie, AMERICAN GOTHIC and HANGIN’ OUT

Kepi Ghoulie, American Gothic and Hangin’ Out It’s perverse how a divorce can become a footnote on a Wikipedia entry; even worse when it becomes evident that it was the catalyst for a punk band’s break-up. In 2008, one year after the Groovie Ghoulies disbanded, Kepi Ghoulie released two albums that established himself as a solo …

Up Hi? Down low: The Aquabats and growing old.

You’re getting old. Does that scare the hell out of you? It drives Mr. Fallingard to stay up at night. I haven’t lost any sleep over it but I did lose something. You see, there isn’t a lot of music that I avoid. Yes, there are some genres I don’t like. I find that’s an …

Bad Whoremoans, BAD WHOREMOANS

Bad Whoremoans Bad Whoremoans I avoided certain genres of music for a while because after one or two attempts to get into them, the handful of bands I optioned all sounded the same. Psychobilly was this to me for a while – I just could not get into it because everyone I listened to was …

The Problem with Frankenchrist

Young kids: If you ever want to get into the Dead Kennedys, you only need to pick up their first two full-lengths, the IN GOD WE TRUST INC. EP, the GIVE ME CONVIENCE compilation and, if you’re a big fan, the LIVE AT THE DEATH CLUB release.  Pretend that the band broke up in 1986 …

Zombie Surf Camp, ‘Zombie Surf Camp’

Zombie Surf Camp Zombie Surf Camp Can a vampire ever be a convincing lower-class dredge? There are many attempts to give the creature a grittier edge, though outside of a return to the inhuman version of NOSFERATU, the vampire will have a lot to overcome before it turns out to be something less-than-beautiful. Since the …

World Needs Monsters – diemonsterdie

You don’t need to go any earlier than the first Ramones record to see how interlinked punk and horror have been from the start:  you can find it in ‘Chainsaw,’ a punk tribute to the ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre,’ but as well in ‘I Don’t Want To Go Down to The Basement.’  There was something automatic …
