alright, I've got two tonight.

The first one, I don't know what it is.

It's a shoegaze/dreampop sort of thing. It's got a guy and a girl (or at least, it sounds like one).

. . . not as much reverb as you're probably used to for this sort of thing.
Pretty cool though.
Lemme know if you recognize it.

the next one. . .

It really reminds me of Sonic Youth, but I don't think it's them.
Unless it's some random b-side I've never heard (there's a few of those I'm sure).

song #10 has been identified. .

it is "skeleton king" by Yona-Kit

a Skin Graft band

it was on a compilation, with melt banana and mouth shasta and space streakings
I'm quite sure I heard this whole thing once and didn't know who it was.
ha ha

anyway, thanks to a guy known only as "Murray" for identifying that song.

meanwhile, stay tuned. I got a hold of a tape player and have a ton more shit.


and well, we still need #3

unidentified song #10

So, #3 is stumping everyone but getting stuck in thier heads.
I'm sure someone will know eventually.

Meanwhile, here's another one.

Unidentified song 10 by KMFCM

It kinda reminds me of the Jesus Lizard, but I'm pretty sure it isn't them. The riff is real sick, and I can't understand the vocalist at all. He sounds a bit like Oscar the Grouch to me though.
Again, sick fucking riff. This will probably end up stuck in peoples heads too.

Hope someone knows it

and the first song? untitled song #3 (no, they won't be in order)

So, this first song. . . .I have no idea who it could be.
I can't even think of a band I could compare this to, to give an idea of what it sounds like.
I guess you might call it a "post-hardcore" song. I'm about a clueless to genres as I was when I was 15. :)

Have you heard this song?
Do you know who it is?
please comment.

the random tapes

So, hi. I don't know if there are similar blogs to this one. I thought of this idea a year ago or so, but never actually got started until now.

I'm known as KMFCM.
I'm a late blooming metalhead/indie rock fan/music nerd/snob/whatever you'd like to call it.
I started getting into underground music in my late teens. 15-16, around that time.
I used to listen to WVKR, the vassar college radio station, all night.
I'd go to sleep and leave the tape running, and then listen to what was recorded on the bus to school the next morning.

About 60% of the songs on the tapes, roughly, turned out to be the following bands (among others)
Pixies, Polvo, Sleater Kinney, Team Dresch, Anal Cunt, Fear Factory, Machinehead, Nothingface, Brainiac, Deadguy, Earth Crisis, the Queers, Sicko, Girls Against boys and the Grifters.

I got into a lot of music all at once,
but the other 40% was never identified.

I'm from Peekskill, and didn't leave the house all that much, but I can assure you, we never had record stores. It's just not that kind of town.
That's why when I moved to Philly for school in '99, it was like a revelation. . . . but some of this stuff was still never identified.

blah blah blah, etc. etc.
This isn't supposed to be that kind of blog. . or. . .well, i don't know.
Next post, the music starts.

I hope I discover some more new (old?) tunes through this.

thanks for reading.
