Springtime, “South Hill” 7-inch

cover - springtimeIs it lazy to describe Springtime's South Hill 7-inch as post-Cro Mags hardcore, fronted by Henry Rollins? Something about Springtime makes me want to start shorthanding every reference. The group's quite good -- don't get me wrong. This is actually one of the heavier releases Tiny Engines has put out. It's just that the whole thing is very '90s: specifically, early-to-mid, pre-pop punk / emo explosion. The vocals are still getting spit, but melodicism tempers the anger. "Wait" balances every aspect of what Springtime brings. The melody, energy, and anger are balanced so perfectly, I was listening on tenterhooks, afraid the whole thing would teeter or go off the rails. Gladly, it doesn't, and it's absolutely riveting. This is exactly what a 7-inch should be: all songs essential, making a showcase for the band which leaves you wanting more. You can snag it on vinyl from the Tiny Engines store. It's available as a pressing of 100 on white with blue & orange starburst, 120 on white, 130 on gray, or 150 on robin egg blue, or you can get a package with all four.

Zithromax And Sinus Infection

suck-straw Zithromax And Sinus Infection, Much as it wants to be cool, the vampire rock 'n' roll horror comedy Suck fails to engage the viewer enough to be anything other than perfunctory. The flick, in a nutshell: Jennifer, bassist for the Winners, gets bitten by a vampire, and then proceeds to live an existence that's meant to be an allegory for musician drug addiction.

The film's just...blah. Suck isn't scary and / or gory enough to be a good horror movie, nor is it funny enough to be a comedy. Zithromax And Sinus Infection japan, Hell, it's not even bad enough to be a cult sensation. It's got potential, but My Best Friend Is A Vampire did the "awkward vampire hiding it from everyone" so much better, Zithromax And Sinus Infection.

There are highlights, however, which makes the movie all the more frustrating. The fact that the best acting is done by rock musicians boggles the mind. Alice Cooper, Moby, Henry Rollins, and Iggy Pop all imbue their characters with the right amount of tongue-in-cheek "we're just joshing" eyebrow-wagging to make it clear that they know that this is all just a joke, Zithromax And Sinus Infection uk. Just by having Moby - a noted vegetarian - play the frontman of a metal band whose fans throw meat at them is enough to get a chuckle. Zithromax And Sinus Infection, Not so funny. The way certain characters pose at times, meant to evoke an album cover. It's awkward, and not nearly as clever as writer / director Rob Stefaniuk wants it to be when the band's drummer poses in front of an American flag with a bandanna in the back pocket of his jeans.

The one scene in the movie that works out perfectly, and shows what the movie could have been is when the band stops for snacks at a gas station. Jennifer flirts with the attendant, 500mg Zithromax And Sinus Infection, only to stab him in the neck with the straw to his Slushie. Blood spurts everywhere, and the band's roadie comes in to find her gulping blood from the straw in his neck, Zithromax And Sinus Infection. It's hilarious, gross, and owes more than a little to Troma. Had the film showed a little more blood, and focused less on the highly boring character played by the director, and more on the vampirism, Suck could have succeeded, rather than simply...well, you know, 150mg Zithromax And Sinus Infection.

The film's got a firm grasp on irony, however. The lead character is obviously meant to be Stefaniuk's guitarist and lead singer Joey Winner, but Jessica Paré's bassist Jennifer is far more entertaining, much like in the film, where Jennifer is drawing more ink than Joey. The Winners' songs are also bland numbers, which works out well, Zithromax And Sinus Infection australia, as the band is supposed to be a fairly workmanlike bar band that nobody really cares about.

All in all, this is a film that simply doesn't have what it needs to be anything other than a late-night "eh, why not?" viewing when it inevitably gets picked up by a third-tier cable channel.
