Thirsty Thursdays: 13

First of all, Hello everyone and sorry for taking like 10 days to get a new post up! Last night TakeoffZebra (ToZ) and I had the privilege of being witness to the Drinkchronicity/Farewell Tour of Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine. It was an honor to be the last few to possibly see Richard Cheese and his band play in Atlanta live.

Richard Cheese - Rape Me (Nirvana)

The set began with a lounge based (of course) intro in that Mr. Richard Cheese was welcomed to the stage. Cheese introduces himself, "Hello, I'm Drunk." The performance was amazing, and as expected comical. When Cheese wasn't asking women to show him their pussy or to flash the band he would walk around the croud singing to individuals and adding pieces of that persons life to the song he was singing. He also managed to get an 8 year old kid on the stage (under the influence of 20 dollars) to finish a chorus of Sir Mix Alot's "Baby Got Back." So you can also say you were some of the last few to see Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine live, this is a list of their final tour dates:

JULY 18 - Atlanta (You missed it; twas awesome...)
JULY 21 - New Orleans
JULY 27 - San Diego
AUG. 5 - Las Vegas
AUG. 14 - Portland Oregon
AUG. 17 - Seattle
AUG. 22 - Sacramento
AUG. 28 - San Francisco
SEPT. 8 - Chicago
OCT. 5 - Santa Barbara
OCT. 13 - Salt Lake City

I have always been a huge fan of Jesu and Justin Broadwick however I did not own any of their foreign releases until recently when I managed to get a hold of the Japanese version of Silver (EP). The song Silver has always been a big Jesu hit however, the Japanese version blew me away. Its electronic overlay and beautiful underlay of simple guitar notes reminds me as to why I love blogging so much, being able to share beautiful music like this with you. "Silver is just another Gold."

Jesu - Silver (Original Beats)

Muse's CD has a major political influence behind it, however if you listen closely in all the tracks you'll notice some more underlying themes. Such as space and aliens? The CD is named Black Holes and Revelations; the music video for Knights of Cydonia is set in a futuristic wild west. With laser grappling robots and cowboys of the future. Many of the songs have spaceship sounding effects in the background also. But who cares? The keyboard and synth effects never fail to "wow" me. Lets hope Muse continues to release great music.

Muse - Exo-Politics

The Rapture was a influence in starting this blog, so why the fuck haven't we been posting more material by them?! WTF! Time to fix this. This amazing remix of Crimson Red just feels so right. But sorry... there's no cowbell in this one.

The Rapture - Crimson Red (Remix)

Hold your milk jugs high! Whats coming up next? Our farewell tribute to the Shameless Complacency blog, and TakeoffZebra's thoughts of the new Smashing Pumpkins release and Billy Corgan. Cheers!
