Reuniting for the first time in 20 years to celebrate the eighth year of Columbus Discount Records’ existence, the True Believers are:
I’ll spare you my own version of the True Believers’ back story and instead point you to a description (complete with Amrep corrections) here and a 2005 interview with Mike Rep. Suffice it to say, it’s a pretty big deal that these guys (and girl) are reuniting in two days. Leave it to CDR. Accompanying the True Believers will be the Guinea Worms, Unholy Two, Altered States of the United Snakes and Jeff Fernengel. The show starts at 10pm, and (like all Carabar shows) it’s free.
In related news, Nudge has his own YouTube channel and has been uploading all sorts of insane videos for your viewing pleasure, from an hour-long 1992 V3 show to Tommy Jay and Nudge (“JayFish”) in black hoodies covering “White Rabbit” for the video camera in 2007. You can subscribe and/or check out a sampling after the jump. According to this site, some of these videos will be part of a program at the upcoming Ohio Film+Music Festival. (ht Wumme)

MP3:DJ Missile-White Black’n It feat Devin from New City Gypsy (Produced by Path aka Jared not Phillips)
I stopped into Carabar to have a drink with Ron Barker. Someone on our message board had been taking shots at Ron and his bar, Carabar, this week. Ron requested that he could use our public forum to address his detractors, and beyond.

MP3:the Unholy Two-White Devil
MP3:the Unholy Two-Sullivan Killed Benoit
Say White Devil. I don’t trust you. I may have been speaking a bit blanket last week when I told Waka Flocka Flame that he was the last punk rock artist standing, Especially flawed when I live in Columbus Ohio, home of Vile Gash and Columbus Discount Records, (ie 2010 I’m still fucking with Necropolis)
I apologize but what do you do when Waka Flocka Flame is yelling at you?
In all short-sided, blatant negative hubris and a half-truths, Columbus Discount Records’ the UNHOLY TWO are actually the last Caucasian American Punk Rock band standing. I’ve seen Martin Weedsteeler declare to the heavens that only Adam Smith and Chris Lutsko are real. And Martin Weedsteeler usually only believes in the complete expliotation and disdain of music.
No, but Unholy Two doesn’t just have the cosignture of total shit maniacs. Adam Smith produced the upcoming Times New Viking album…… which even you most die-hard, it doesn’t exist if it didn’t happen at an open mic or a local’s only festival, loving your CITY to the point of not knowing or giving a fuck who MIke Repp or Jim Shepard is ……..must admit that you have seen the Times New Viking on the website you go to read about music on. And frontman Chris Lutsko is actually the only member of the Unholy Two because he no one wants to fully stand for his words but him.
Well, all half-baked hyperbole aside. Don’t take my word for it. Go see one of Unholy Two’s $$KUM OF THE EARTH release parties. November 6th at Skylab or one of their three New York shows. Or find their Nationally distributed record on shelves in finer record stores everywhere shortly there after.
When you move, at” the cool bars”, people will ask you if you have heard of or know this band.

And yes this is really stupid. T

From the horses mouth-
In order to help out our friend Ben Hamilton we are making this saturday’s show a benefit. The show at Summit is also a birthday party for the salty old helmsman of the bar (yrs truly) with “performances” by some Ohio favorites… Guinea Worms, Unholy Two, We March, and Grafton. Strongest Man Alive, Righteous Buck and the Skull Scorchers, and Washington Beach Bums will be at Bobo. 5 bucks for both shows, pay at either door. the set times will be staggered out so you can stagger between them.
Also, just so you know, the kitchen at Cafe Bourbon Street is back in action, with tacos (yep, Dave was a ninja), hot dogs, empanandas, hamburgers, pepperoni rolls, and a whole lot more to keep you fueled up for beer fueling. Menu and schedule of Dollar specials to follow.
ps i hate when people call it CBS. anyone else?

Rebirth motherfucker! Yeah, here we go again. A TON of cool shit has happened since we last got together in this official capacity and I’m not gonna tell you anything about it! I will tell you that Duffy made me take some online journalism and creative writing and photography courses while I was on hiatus and as you’re about to see it did absolutely no good!
I will also tell you I picked a good week to decide to start doing this crap again. Super Desserts, Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s, Guinea Worms, Warpaint, Don B, and of course, Mike O! If you are at all inclined to listen to a bitter, old, hateful, cynical and all around super cool and totally nice dude’s rant about, you know, stuff, you know what to do! Continue reading

Pictured above is Chris Ludsko of the Unholy Two, and Atmosphere producer Ant. Atmosphere showed up to So What Wednesdays at Cafe Bourbon Street after their show at the Newport. Somehow Chris Ludsko and Ant ended up being the last two doods in the bar. When its was explained to Ludsko that Ant may look like a creep similar, he is in fact and indie rap producer that has prolly sold a million records. Ludsko said “so the caption should be two hit makers.”
Because I was able to pick Ant out of a crowd, I do not possess the ability to describe Brooklyn’s Drunk Driver. I will say that I am way into the recent trend of band names like Drunk Driver, SexVid, and Eatskull that sound like weirdo hipster graffiti handles like Earsnot, Neckface, and Thug Mayor crica 2003.
Drunk Driver’s album is called Born Pregant.
Vile Gash will continue to wish Dyspareunia on us all.
