Ep. 310 The GAZMS

This past Friday I chatted with the boys from The GAZMS in front of a live “studio” audience at Ft. Lauderdale’s Laser Wolf. We talked potato chips, Miami’s Fulltime Motherfucker / Sandratz’s “rock off” feud and talked shit about everyone’s favorite avant-garde noise asshole – Rat Bastard. They played a few songs (my apologies in advance for the horrible mix of the songs. We’re lofi out of necessity not because we’re cool.) Overall a good time was had. Hope you enjoy.

Primitive Sounds For A Modern World, Let’s Get Depressed

Jonny Manak and his crew (well, rhythm section anyways) of Depressives have added another full-length into their ever-growing arsenal of Turbojugend-approved musical missives.
