I never understand this argument. I cannot play an instrument to save my life. Should I enjoy all music by all musicians because I can't create a song with a gun held to my head?


No, you're entitled to your opinions, like everyone else. But if someone's doing the "heavy lifting" of writing songs, playing in a band, making recordings, etc., it carries more weight somehow. I guess I find it more admirable to play in a pretty cool band in one's fifties (when that's very uncommon where I live) than to readily dismiss it on the internet after hearing one song. Granted, listening to that whole set was what sold me on the group. Wouldn't mind seeing them live.


I'll give you that. Playing in a band is indeed more admirable than making comments on a message board.

Therefore, logically speaking, "Serpent Tongue" is good song after all!


Harhar. I never said this is air-tight logic. Peace be with you.

I thought that sounded pretty great. I hope the whole album is instrumental. If that's their Pull The Cup then I'm extra excited for the rest. I really liked how lean he transformed the last flourish with 30 seconds left. Can't wait.

Edit: after listening again , last flourish isn't really any leaner.
I must have imagined it.

Yes FMGMER that would be pretty sweet if they just joined this band.
That would be pretty amazing and sort of unheard of ?
At the least, I'd like to assume that Joe no longer lives in Italy and we are one step closer to them paying again. I predicted early 2020s in another thread but I hope to wrong and will apologize if it's earlier. But I won't be sorry.
But he's right. It would be amazing if Ian and Guy just joined this band. His post would be instant HOF.

It reminds me of Psychic Paramount and Trans Am quite a bit .
And I don't really have problems when bands sound like other bands .
If the shit's good I don't have a problem. I also don't think that a band gets to have dominion over a certain aesthetic. Bookkeepers care about that stuff. Cannibalism is good for art.
It's better than good reasons.

I've heard the record and it's fantastic! Gorgeous moments mixed with fun, exciting parts. I think when you hear the entire record, that song fits in a cool way. "Serpent's Tongue" is sort of the "Pull the Cup" of the record.

If you're not into instrumental, 3 piece, guitar-based stuff, it might not be your bag.


It sounds like The Process of Weeding Out with a better recording job.

I like it a lot.

I don't hear it, there's none of the idiosyncrasies of late period instrumental Black Flag.

I thought the track was decent, but too much on the jam band side (felt the same way about the live vids that popped out recently). Would listen to the full record and give it a go. So far nothing the ex-Fugazis did post-hiatus blew my mind, not that these people haven't done plenty of that already.

Yeesh, very boring song that is.

Would probably enjoy it very much in live setting tho.
Unless they change their infrastructure, they're not ready for a punk show.

Its not bad, the guitar even sounds very Iommi at times, but Ginn? Nah its missing all the Coltrane freak-out chaos of that era of Black Flag.

I think that song was pretty boring! It really needed a third part to sustain 4 minutes of it, and it was so busy that it didn't really had a minimalist or hipnotic feel to it... But, you know, maybe it's a bad song out of the whole record!

Fugazi? Of course that band is good. What do you think I am? A cop or some shit? NOT CRAP.

If i bump into someone as they are getting out of an elevator, and not say sorry because it's really early and I'm a bit dazed or something, I randomly wake up 10 years later remembering it and thinking "that guy must hate me" and I want to kill myself, so I think that I'd not make a great cop, hahaha!

For me, Fugazi could only ever go down.

A few years ago, someone uploaded onto Youtube their entire performance in front of the White House protesting the first (!) Iraq War. In the freezing rain/sleet. On a rickety, jerry rigged stage. Imagine trying to pull that off now.
