MUSIC REVIEW: The Sweet Things “Love to Leave” 7″

The Sweet Things clearly worship at the altar of the Rolling Stones, specifically the stride that starts with Let It Bleed and ends with Exile on Main Street. This is an oft tread path because those records are near perfection. However, the musical landscape is littered with the bones of half-assed Keith’s and Mick’s who […]

INTERVIEW: UK’s The Hip Priests Want to Fuck, Drink & Fuck You Up

Black Denim Blitz by The Hip Priests The Turbojugend way of life is pretty much non-existent in South Florida. The Miami chapter for example currently holds 7 members (yes, Turbojugends have chapters). My guess is that it’s way too cool a movement for such a flaky city like Miami. Don’t get me wrong, some people down here tear […]
