The Infrasonics Live at PRFBBQ2011

The Infrasonics perform live at The Observatory in Chicago, IL as part of the PRFBBQ2011. With an absent Matt Engstrom, Steve and I ordered a couple of cheap Russian laborers from a catalog, and forced them to learn every song from the PRF Songwriting Challenge. Vladimir and Igor, who were formerly Soviet Officers for the Russian Navy on a 941 Akula Typhoon Class submarine in Lake Chany near Novoyablonovka, Novosibirskaya oblast, Russian Federation, took quickly to these, the songs of the PRF. They were fed porridge and mp3’s and were only allowed to leave the studio to go to the туалет and the хомяк магазине. They did well and are now currently back home melting down old aluminum submarine parts to make instruments from.

In this set are awesome songs by 2207, Max Benson and PEPPER! For more info on the band, and to go where the music sounds nothing like this, please visit

This summer rocked my old ass off.

Well, it started out that way. I had an unexpected amount of free time that became available just as Police Teeth rolled thru the Midwest. “Awesomer Than The Devil” blew my rock and roll paradigm to pieces, and is still holding steady at the top spot of the 2011 new elpee list I am constantly updating in my brain. I’d found out about Police Teeth thru D.j. Hostettler, the drummer for noise maniacs ifihadahifi. D.j. also was the guy who turned me on to the Electrical Audio board, and, consequently, the PRFBBQ.
