i just wanted to take a moment to tell everyone about another new addition to the noising machine family; a couple of cute boys with the pseudonym: “D R U I D S”
it’s definitely a large step away from our other new comrades, Wet Chemistry, and not exactly similar to Beati Paoli or MCKNGBRD, but at the same time, i think these four bands fit together very nicely. it might be that all The Noising Machine artists seem to come packaged with a similar frame of mind, or maybe it’s just that they all write music that i love, and you have to be me to see the connection. either way, i think it makes sense. you can check them out at http://www.myspace.com/druids666. so far, they only have one live song available to listen to, but there’s a full length studio album currently in the works, so be prepared. AND IN OTHER NEWS… Wet Chemistry was on Scented Vinyl a short ways back, and we now have a video from that appearance up on our myspace (http://www.myspace.com/thenoisingmachine). swing on over there and check it out. thenoisingmachinerelated posts:
rateyourmusic.com is something i think greg and possibly tony would be really interested in. it’s both a database of recorded music, an organizational tool, and a social networking site. you see… basically… you set up a profile and then add, from their database, all the albums, eps, singles, bootlegs, etc that you have in your personal collection. you can also look up specific albums to read reviews and see what other people rate them. this is all fun and interesting, but the parts of the site that i find to be the most fun are these:
1.) you can compare your musical tastes with others. you can automatically find people with similar collections as well as compare the ratings you’ve given with the ratings others have given.
2.) you can view various statistics about the music in a collection. for example: breakdown by rating, rating by decade, or ownership by decade, format, or release type. there are also top releases for every year and other fun charts and lists to browse.
i (scott) decided to make a profile today. you can check me out at: http://rateyourmusic.com/~MCKNGBRD. i haven’t had time to add my whole collection yet (i’ve only gotten through the “B’s” so far), and haven’t actually RATED the majority of what i’ve added, but i’ll have it all up eventually. let’s be friends! :*
the illustrations compiled on the flyer were taken from a spanish horror magazine called “Delirium”, which i can’t find ANY info on, and a painting of st denis, by Leon Bonnat. st denis is a cool character because after he was beheaded at montmartre, he picked up his severed head and walked for TWO MILES, preaching a sermon the whole way. he’s also the patron saint of HEADACHES! no joke.
we have links for them other places as well, but since i just spent a couple hours updating both the noising machine AND beati paoli facebooks, i feel like i should tell everyone to go check ’em out, and if you are a facebook member, PLEASE add us.
Beati Paoli is going to be featured on westsidewill.com today. They will be on the “unsigned artist showcase”. Since we are in no way a major label, i think they can fit in the “unsigned” category just fine. right!?
you should all go listen to it.
