The long awaited Negative Element re-issue 12" is out!
This really is a beautiful package from Alona's Dream records. This picture is of the limited edition run. I mean, c'mon. Banana yellow vinyl, a hand silk screened book cover (numbered, none the less!), with great cover graphics, and it comes with a patch, a button, stickers, a promo poster, and some vintage flyers as postcards. Also a great insert with tons of great pics and liner notes from the whole band. I think these may be sold out already, but the regular album on black vinyl is out and available all over. You just don't get all the goodies. It's also available on CD. Either way, I hadn't heard this restored recording in at least 30 years. This is from the same recording session that produced our track on the Meathouse comp. Listening to the test pressing was an amazing trip down memory lane.
If you're a fan, this is a nice addition to the collection.
Why people are still interested in this band is indeed a mystery to me.
But I have to admit... it makes an old man smile.
I posted a couple of choice pics from my trip to Philly to protest the DNC this summer. It turned out to be a real let down on so many levels, but hey, god bless the USA. Take a look here....DNC Protest.
Just posted a vid of a new song being born, well, not so new. But I didn't know I still had the footy, so it's kinda new to me, since I had completely forgotten this song. Catchy little number. I put it on the Loosies page. Give it a listen.
I just addded some live KiL videos from our most recent show.
Thanks to my brother Barry, I just posted some new E.C.A. tracks. They're from an old punk comp we were on called "Empty Skulls". It's a weird old comp. These are some weird tracks. circa 1984
I just posted an old recording of the time NEGATIVE ELEMENT ambushed a HS radio show. Good stuff.
I call it NEGATIVE ELEMENT vs WDGC. We managed to get ejected and banned from the station in less than 10 minutes.
I just posted some nice pics from this years Mermaid Parade down at Coney Island. If you're not familiar with the ritual, look it up. It's one of the funnest things to do in NYC. I got some nice shots.
I just added the new KiL demo. I'm super excited about this. It's been a long time comin'.
We've tried various home recordings over the past two years, but they never worked. We finally went into a studio, and I gotta say, this is some good shit! Seven musical delights to enthrall your earhole.
Also, we have officially launched www.kil.nyc, the official KiL website.
I just added a new band to THE PUNK ARCHIVE. The band is THE OUTBREAKS, which was another Peoria band. I took this from the original cassette master.
In a weird set of circumstances, I happened to stumble upon a video on my phone that I didn't know I still had. It's another song from the set featured on the CLASSIC ALBUMS LIVE page, under the ODDITIES. page. I love happy surprises! Fun stuff.
On a side note, KiL is finishing up our new demo. 7 songs. Stay tuned...
