  1. I just saw your steaming of Secret Chiefs 3 at St. Vitus. Tremendous! Simply tremendous! It was the first time I saw Secret Chiefs 3 and was blown away! And just got blown away by you guys! The underground scene needs you guys! We need you guys! Is their a way to donate to help out? When will you post that show on your website? I saw it on youtube. Thanks and take care!

  2. WTF? Where is Sonic Youth video in Battary Park? Silver Rocket. You have the greatest video of Sonics and don’t publish that.

    • We deleted Beggars Banquet’s entire catalog due to… lets call it philosophical differences with the label. Matador being a sub-label of BB, their material is similarly impacted. Sorry to disappoint. As you can imagine, we weren’t exactly the driving force here…

  4. Hello, really love the work here. Came across it via Freewilliamsburg, I was wondering are you accepting contributions from other writers at the moment and if so how would I get in touch about sending some pieces?

  5. hello,

  10. Hi there –

    I’ve viewed the footage of the Universal Order of Armageddon show in Brooklyn numerous times and was wondering if you will be releasing the rest of the show! Was it recorded? Will you be posting online, selling, or anything at all? Please let me know…I never got to see these guys live and these videos are the closest I can get, unless they play more reunion shows!



    2010/09/01 at 00:18

  14. Hey i checked out your article on Neurosis and the videos you captured are great. It has the band and their visuals perfectly to see the experience so much better. I was wondering if you can allow me to upload the videos on youtube. I will make sure you are credited with it and put your website link on it, or if you have any other ideas that’s fine too.

  15. Hello! Love your footage of the Lee Perry show the other day. I was there too – historic! I’ve watched it now about a dozen times. Please, could you do another one? A number of the other tracks are at least equally as good.
