HEY MANDIBLE GOES DEAF IN 2015

The Quaker Goes Deaf rate Hey Mandible's album The Arse #42 for their Top-50 Best of 2015 List! w00t!w00t!

#42:  Hey Mandible—The Arse   (Fort Lowell/Infintesmal)  New album from band out of Jacksonville, Florida—heavy guitar indie rock with psychedelic outer space noise blasts that mediate the volatile rock ‘n’ roll middle ground between power pop hooks and angry feedback/distorto riffs.  “The Arse” integrates noise and melody in a fluid, punch-you-out hug of addictively dark and challenging song structure, where distortion never overpowers, but always provides a muscular compliment.  These are songs that hit you hard with a punk-edged face-slap that has just the right amount of warmth & sting to call your back again.  500 copies on green marble vinyl, and the cover art by Laura Bearl is a trip. (The 50s housewife taking the smiling little broasted baby out of the oven has horns and furry, hooved legs.)   Similarities to bands like Dumb Numbers, Turn Me On Dead Man, Dinosaur Jr., Mission Of Burma, Black Level Embassy, Sonic Youth, Polvo, the Intelligence.  Hey Mandible play brilliantly angry, darkly accessible rock with an instinctual, gut-level roar of power that hangs on to the melodic groove for dear life.  Recommended.

COMMON THREAD, THE GREATEST BAND EVER

One of the most influential bands of my life has been Common Thread.  Fort Lowell Records would simply not exist if it weren't for them.  Not only were they close friends of mine growing up in Orange Park, FL, but they were simply amazing musicians that pushed boundaries like no other band.

In the late 80's and early 90's, a big part of the skateboarding scene in Orange Park, FL, existed at "The Sandtrap."  This was the name for Joe & Tiger Parker's backyard half-pipe skate ramp.  Tiger was one of my best friends at the time (shout-out to the Rice Posse) and Joe was his older brother.  Joe's friends Travis Taylor and Joey Zimmerman would often come over as well to skate with us, but before we knew it, Joe, Travis, and Joey were plugging in guitars in the living room.  It wasn't too long after that Common Thread was born and shows at The Civic League and Pizza Blue became the most mind blowing experiences for us growing up.  Craig Parlet, a friend of mine literally since the age of one (we were both born in Portsmouth, VA, due to our fathers both being in the Navy) became Common Thread's drummer just after the release of their first cassette.

Fortunately for all of us, our friend Aaron O'Laughlin has posted up two great video's of Common Thread.  The first is a video he made for their classic hit "Lydia Elle," a song that appeared on what most will agree was their greatest release ever, Fountain.  The second video is a live recording from a show at The Bad Boy Club, playing John Denver's "Leaving on a Jet Plane," a song they would often end their shows with, featuring their original drummer, Donald Kilpatrick.





In addition, here are a few other classic songs by Common Thread for you to listen to, taken from their MySpace page:

Sesame "Sesame"
Destroying Red Lights "Destroying Red Lights"
Drippings "Drippings"
My Feet as Prunes "My Feet as Prunes"

We hope you have enjoyed listening to Common Thread as much of we have! By the way, you may have noticed the Teisco Japanese Guitar that Joe Parker was playing in the live video. This guitar was a big inspiration for him to begin building his own guitars, Joe Parker Guitars, photographed below as seen at Austin Vintage Guitars in Texas.


Happy Shoegazing!
