If you like what you see/hear you should probably purchase music from the above artists at any of these fine online retailers or your local independent record store or better yet buy directly from the band next time you go out to a show:

Insound | eMusic | Other Music
 
You can always watch more (live) music video @ the GIMMETINNITUSTUBE Channel and the GIMME TINNITUS Vimeo, but frankly I have been to lazy to record whole songs at shows recently, so you might as well go to the GT Vine.

Friday Night Vids

q and also a :: Stickers

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Seattle’s Stickers vocalist/saxophonist Gabi Page-Fort sent us these answers to our questions in this q and also a.

q: What is the last song you (really) heard?

a: I’m obsessed with Steeleye Span‘s “Long Lankin” now and always. It’s a tremendously frightening tale of child murderer sung in a lilting and beautiful folk prelude to heavy metal. Also Emily is having one of her frequent Janet Jackson Control moments. If you’re making big moves with your life be sure to let that song help you.


 
 
q: What is your most common reaction to hearing your own music?

a: I’m always impressed. In my head we’re Bon Jovi playing Jones Beach. I always figure I’m making up any and all goodness I hear with my naive fantasies – then I hear recordings and am like, look out Bon Jovi! My dad once asked me how I found such sexy talented musicians to hold it down so I could cut loose. Recordings give me the only possible outside view on my dumb luck. I imagine proving to my grand kids that I haven’t made it all up by busting out fleshy pink vinyl and powering up the ancient turntable and blowing their future sass minds.

Downloadable: Bon Jovi (mp3)
 
 
q: What is your favorite artist/band to see live?

a: We’re collectively obsessed with Health Problems. They had their last show before a brief education hiatus the other night – with our sister band Smiling, which feature’s our very own Troy’s beautiful voice. It was electric. Ian grabs your attention with every bone in his face then the lock in and throw you against your own skin.


 
 
q: What is your favorite venue (in NYC, if applicable)?

a: Cake Shop. Emily and I were both young in New York in our twenties – we didn’t know each other but she sold me ginger cookies at Oren’s and we both loved the shopping cupcake cherry cool basement heaven offered by Cake Shop in summer.
 
 
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?

a: Vibrations fest. Frank Correa had art there – he’s a genius, he made our band pics – and Aidan Fitzgerald too. Also free movement society was featured there: Freedom is pure culture. I’m also still reeling from the romantic poops in love paintings I saw in the Richard Hamilton retrospective at the Tate Modern this spring. He was an architect and a brilliant reinterpreter of mass culture. The poops are based on soft focus toilet paper ads.
 
 
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be?)

a: We have nearly a new record’s worth of new songs we’re honing, including one called “Pigeon,” In Which the wisdom and peace of yoga help me express my remorse for the tragic wounded pigeon windowsill dustpan flick to sure death of 2008 (New York) to the tune of air conditioned riddle riffs. We’re also working on two music videos with Emily at the helm and a Fainting Series 7″.

q and also a :: Birth (Defects)

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Baltimore’s own Birth (Defects) sent us these answers for this installment of q and also a.
 
 
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?

sean: I don’t know what you mean by “really” hear a song. The last song I enjoyed is by the best punk band out of the UK right now, Frau – “Punk Is My Boyfriend”, also Unholy Two – “Survivor Series”, a classic from The Need – “O Sally How’s it Feel With a Fake Hand?” and from a project called Karasyozoku – “Strayers Seek Crowd, Even Though They Don’t Have The Reason”.

rob: I keep Dark Blue’s cover of John Cale’s “Hungry for Love” on repeat at all times if that’s what you mean.
 
 
q: What is your most common reaction to hearing your own music?

s: “At least we aren’t a Hoax rip off band”

r: “At least we are a Hoax rip-off band.”
 
 
q: What is your favorite artist/band to see live?

s: Watery Love.

r: I don’t have favorites; I love them all equally. OK, maybe Technicolor Teeth a little more than the others.

TECHNICOLOR TEETH / BLOOD POOL from Weird City of Dirt on Vimeo.

 
q: What is your favorite venue (in NYC, if applicable)?

s: Death By Audio.

r: I don’t have enough experience to be an authority on New York City venues, but we’re playing The Gutter on August 15, so I’ll pick that one.

Upcoming Show Dates

august 15th at the gutter
 
 
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?

s: I have no idea what you really mean. I like Anime a lot, and both Rob and I enjoy the Knights of Sidonia series. Hive Bent and us are starting an Anime theme songs touring band. See you in 2017.

r: Bloodborne! and Knights of Sidonia, yes. My kids really like Mario Kart, too.


 
 
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?

s: This split cassette with CP/M is our first release. It was recorded in 16 hours. It took 7 years to make this release happen.

r: I’m still amazed that cassette tapes have made a comeback.
