Alright, lets get this week started off properly. Last week was Halloween but I wasn’t able to post anything. Which means today we start out with Misfits Meet the Nutley Brass: Fiend Club Lounge.
Previously the Nutley Brass covered some tunes by the Ramones. These swingin’ astro-lounge versions of classic Misfits songs are great for a spooky party or every day use. I wish there were more releases like this. And just check out that album art. Speaking of album art, how about some Austrian Death Machine?
This is an album of metal songs based around Arnold Schwarzenegger movies. I know the ArnoCorps were the first to do it, but how can you not love songs like Get to the Choppa? They recently released a new CD, Double Brutal. They also have the single Very Brutal Christmas. And, rounding out the weird music selection of the day, we have Japanese Irish Celtic band The Cherry Coke$.
You can check their myspace if you don’t believe me. The video for Bullet for Vapid Beer looks like a fun time. Being an old time fan of Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, I find it enjoyable. I hope they tour the states sometime. The last band from Japan I saw live was Thug Murder so it’s been awhile.
