I don't even know why I was at What's your rupture's site, I think originally I was going to write about a different single they had....the Silver Shampoo single, which I'll have to get to later. I didn't even get a chance to check it out once I saw this new Nodzzz single, which the first orders come with a cassette of a live new years eve show...pretty bad ass. I'm looking for an old 4 track now.
They need to make one of those cassette players that has a cd burner in it... Like those ridiculous record players...it's almost gotten to that point. 'Convert those old cassettes to CD!' Four your dad...fathers day...Sure.
It's funny...I was reading some post somewhere talking about watching people leaving a Wavves show or something at Market Hotel where the amount of people leaving with LP's was insane. Unless you just couldn't see the CD's in peoples pockets. It's not news...it just strikes me sometimes as cool because I think I'm the only nerd obsessed with this shit.
I found this site the other day, which is either some kind of snuggie or a genius Nodzzz marketing move...either way it fits.
These are the glory days for the dozzz...their perfect sound.
I can't wait to hear some new material from these guys, to hear where they might be thinking of taking this California weird pop.
I'm not even going to speculate about instrumentation, or how this could go off the rails...it's perfect now... why would you want to even bring it up you cynical bastard?
Nodzzz proves you don't have to be recording by reversing the polarity on headphones with a fisher price tape recorder. It doesn't have to be based on joy division. It's fun to play...the band seems like they have it together and are making a really successful go at it. They are going to remain an example of hitting all the right notes...I'm jealous.
