Nodes Of Ranvier

Monsoon NYC
yesterday 2 inches of torrential rain in 2 hrs
It was raining when i woke up during the night ...
man on the news the other night talking about the time that Wall Street area did flood and that it could happen again ...

The Times article on SunnO))) and Boris at times reminded of other powerful,
heavy gigs we have seen along the way - PIL @ Palladium , PIL riot @ The Ritz ,
SPK @ CBGB's with the pig's head spattering,
ENB @ Palladium when they set fire to the big pan set on the stage and a huge suspended monitor was rocked off it's mooring and fell 2 stories to the stage
Whitehouse , Boredoms , Ruins , 001100
Heavy gigs that black rain did in Tompkins Square Park to commemorate the riots ,
One night we had Taro Giro, a famous performing monkey from Japan as opener ,
then we set fire onstage at The Bank , gigs at C -Squat and the day we played GG Allin's last gig .

The hardcore intensity from black rain has been carried over and then some
with Dystopians. Can remember the moments when it suddenly made sense to go ahead and think about making another group - Bush got in as president , the *ucker
and the US has went sideways /backwards ever since .
Protest songs, nah war dances , media chants Slogan's Run , All things must pass
self licking ice cream cone

Rereleases going strong,
DCC Drag Racing out in July on meteosound/Shitkatapult

working again on "You Never Forget Your First Dominatrix" with Dominique
More new music as Dystopians and sisters are doing new tracks throughout this year and then the new projects bubbling under , new ones that come in unexpectedly

It took the night to believe

White luminescent clouds billowing up to fill the horizon
In the evening clouds lightly draped around the top of the Empire State
Humidity is high

Tokyo reports May marked a record low for sunshine
with only 136 hours of sun for the month, 70% of their usual amount

dark clouds out of the East smudging the sky black , pink clouds on blue sky
and the night bird struck up and sang in the quiet

Later that night and five blocks to the North and West ,
the opening tuned down guitar note thunder rolled out into the old church now known as the Avalon . SunnO))) has begun their set

And did enjoy the Sunday Times magazine on Sunn and Boris
at times while reading through the article flashing on a show from late '70's downtown
A very loud set by Boyd Rice's NON at Tier 3 blasting a wary audience
with white light and noise carpet roaring jets taking grained out with effects
right through you
And there too, a number of people with a 'I'm gonna stand here and take it'
posture , as mentioned by Stephen O'Malley of SunnO))) in the article .
Other people were going out for a smoke , some part of the building where you could hear it even a bit less , others coming back from the Mudd Club

The Boris PINK cd is pretty great
Looking for Boris Policeband also at the same time here
Got copies of the Japanese DCC Remix CD's on Delic Records , another great cover art design by Izumi who also did the DCC Vader T shirt for us last year
