JOE AUFRICHT IS A SATANIC CLEVELAND LEGEND

Where were you in 1997? Pissing your pants at Green Day concerts? Joe Aufricht was performing passages from the Satanic Bible and summoning the Dark Lord, himself, all in front of television cameras. Joe is a single man in his 50s who has not appeared to age since the early 90s. Is it because, like Robert Johnson, he made a deal with the devil?

Joe is not just your ordinary neighborhood Satanist though. He is a satanic musician, playing since the 90s in the heralded metal outfit, Satanacon.

You would think it stops there but Mr. Aufricht also released a legendary 1990s underground comedy tape which can be heard below.

If you are a single lady that wants to play with Joe’s “Tooker”, find him on Facebook or his YouTube channel which has some true gems.

CAUCASOID IS ALESSANDRO FROM FLYING TRICHECOS NEW BAND

Caucasoid is exactly the kind of catchy, snotty, in-your-face, punk rock that you would expect from Alessandro. From Cleveland to Italy, his bands definitely bring the kind of gas huffing punk rock ridiculousness that you could abuse your body to all night. I haven’t heard a shit ton of punk or hardcore this year. Sometimes things all just sound the same and I get jaded. Caucosoid sticks out though. They are probably even better than Trichecos. The first half of the year, G.L.O.S.S had the best release and now that my ears have been ringing from Caucasoid, these are my favorite tracks of the second half of 2015.
