Flicks from the most recent trip.

1st here is a great video of Dead Wife from the secret show we played together in the Murder House basement. They were in rare form both nights.

Here are videos of all 4 songs that will be on our upcoming 12" e.p.:
It stops filming at the "fake ending" which is funny. But this is one of our newer songs.

..ripping down the HPX sponsorship banner during the middle of song.
A quick one of Walter from Dead Wife hitting the lights out which remained that way for the rest of the set.
And just a couple of seconds of this one too. These last two and the Dead Wife vid were shot by Matt Elliot. The rest were from Derrick Hiltz of ECT.

Weekend Recap:
Dead Wife are the best. We love touring with them. When we got to Halifax the club owner wouldn't except Shub's 2 valid I.Ds so he took him out back to check his Facebook account before letting him stay to play the gig. I broke Raf's bass which I was borrowing during the very 1st song. The pick guard shattered. Which hopefully isn't too expensive to replace. Then during the last song we played our borrowed bass amp exploded (sorry Derrick!) and the guitar amp blew ( it works again!).

Day 2= Hangovers. A house party with w/ Dead Wife, Meat Curtains, ECT, Fuck Montreal (again this is the band's name - they hate our homeland). During the set we were silly stringed, the lights broke, I got hit so hard in the face with the mic that my eye turned red and blue and started pussing, eventually it got so violent that all of our stuff got knocked over and disconnected between every two riffs. We literally had to stop 6 times. We decided to try a really laid back Ronettes style song that we had never played live and only jammed once to chill people out. It turned out well and I just laid down and we jammed it forever as payback for all the violence. After the set the cops came by with nobody left in the place and no loud music they decided to turn their venom on us instead. I guess someone from the party had left a beer can on the roof of our van and they made Raf (who was completely sober) lay on the curb and touch his toes and say the alphabet backwards, follow a pen etc etc. They forced all of the band members from both bands to stay in the car. That was just the rush we needed to get the fuck out of Halifax. And we hit the road back to Montreal at 1am and drove all night.

Last night was pretty wild.

You don't have to be weird to be wired.

.."when the going get weird, the weird turn pro".

the AXEMEN reissues have been blowin' our minds
<-this is one of the only band reunions that I'd be really into seeing!

Our record is being mastered right now and I am just finishing up the artwork for it. After this trip to Halifax next week we may lay low. Write a new set. And then have a big release show in January. Shub & Raf are doing a set as Back Stabbathh (Black Sabbath covers) for Halloween which I will post about. Brian Mitchell from Black Feelings as Ozzy.

Post-Pop MTL Pre-HPX Post-recording Pre-12" having

Above are some pics from the house party we played in Ottawa a few weeks ago. Since then we have finished recording our SUNGLASSES 12" for Divorce. And we played with Human Eye(who are the most amazing live band on the planet) & also a fun show at Friendship Cove (which was filmed in HD by Tyr and will surface soon). I saw The Butthole Surfers, The Intelligence, Chain + The Gang, Holy Cobras, Golden Triangle, Thee Oh Sees, Induced Labor and millions more. Such a solid inter-provincial crew has formed between the cheezies in TO + the Bruised TongueCobras crew in Ottawa and the extended PLC family in MTL. Things have never been tighter, better organized or as much fun as right now.

Perfect time to spread some of that around and hit the road. Quebec City had to bail (but we'll come back soon) and PEI is the works(?). But HFX is set and should be a huge blowout: Poster by Lisa Czech
Here is the Facebook event!

More stuff to post soon.
