The Mallard (2010-2013) RIP

What's going on?  Another group that I've featured on here that was gaining some serious traction (The Mallard) is now breaking up, according to this SF Weekly article.

Here's my writeups for when I first caught them live....

[NOTE: you'll need to register, but it's free]  

At some point, these will appear on the blog proper.

Recently, instead of playing their regular set, the Mallard instead switched it up and performed their cover of Throbbing Gristle's "Very Friendly".  Martin Hardee in his Lines Overlapping blog has a great writeup (and a short clip), check it out.

Part Two.


Blasted Canyons 2010-2013 (RIP)

Blasted Canyons (2010-2013)

The group announced yesterday via their Facebook that they have disbanded.

Here's some jams and stuff to remember them by, as they were a formidable presence playing live, with all three members exchanging instruments and working together to brew a cauldron of psych-noize for anybody lucky enough to have caught them (I saw them eight times myself) 

Not sure if all the links contained in the below still work, but if you want something and notice that it's not available, feel free to request.  I have a few more things out there, so I'll add to the list as time permits.
