The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time.

Daisy Chainsaw - Eleventeen

It is hard to believe that during the women's punk revolution of the early '90s, the talented Daisy Chainsaw barely made a blip on the music radar. Taking their cue from proto-punks like the Stooges and modern noise-bringers like Pussy Galore, Daisy Chainsaw had a brutal guitar assault that was grounded by awesome, twisted vocals. From the pounding "I Feel Insane" to the otherworld eeriness of "Use Me Use You," they prove that they are adept to many different styles while still retaining their unique sound. Some tracks, like "Dog With Sharper Teeth," are almost pop with their catchy melodies and up-tempo feel. But it is the mountains of ear-shattering guitar that brings this music its intense power. "Hope Your Dreams Come True" is the perfect example; barely holding molten riffs back from overtaking the fragile vocals, this is like the ugly younger sister to the Stooges' classic "Dirt," building to a brutal ending that bubbles over with raw anger. Never following trends and keeping a scary public image worked against them, keeping them behind their contemporaries in Hole and Babes in Toyland. But time has been very kind to their music, making Daisy Chainsaw a rare treat for any fan of solid, female-fronted alternative rock.
