Harsh Distractions - 10/5/10 Playlist

It's been a while since I've posted a playlist from my show. I apologize for my laziness, but hopefully now I will be able to stay on top of things. Here is the episode from last Tuesday. If you've paid attention to my radio show or this blog you may notice this episode is only 1 hour long. This is a slight test run for the new format of the show, which will go from being 2 hours to 1 and will broadcast on Sunday evenings from 5-6pm CST instead of Tuesdays starting on October 24th. Big changes are on the horizon and the bright side is that bands will soon be performing live on the show again. I'm incredibly excited about that. Download link is posted below for interested parties. If you're in a band and want your stuff played on my show send me an email and we'll go from there.

Murder Weapon - Demo 2002

Murder Weapon were a relatively short-lived NYHC style band from Richmond, VA. They only released this demo and an EP on the now defunct Martyr Records entitled Nervous Wreck. The EP was something of a let down because it seemed to lack some of the intensity and fluidity of this demo. It seemed too calculated or edited, whereas this demo is raw and hard and everything a band like this should be. I used to listen to this on repeat on a boombox in my parents basement. Now I can listen to it on my iPod thanks to the wonders of technology!
