FRAIL "Make Your Own Noise" // Real Emotional Hardcore aka "Emo"


FRAIL were a fantastic emotion hardcore, aka "emo" band from Pennsylvania, who
were active in the early to mid 90's.  I never got to see them that I recall.
I had three of their 7" records released on: Earthwell Recs, Kidney Room Recs, 
and Bloodlink Recs.  Later on, maybe in '99 or so, Scott Beiben of Bloodlink
Records released all of FRAIL's music onto one convenient CD format.
"Make Your Own Noise" is the name of it.
FRAIL play very loose, chaotic, jangly political hardcore.  If you guessed
that they were on the far left of the political spectrum, you'd guess correctly.
Polar opposite of my political beliefs, but a fantastic band nonetheless.
This music is emotionally drenched hardcore punk.  Not the tough guy kind 
of hardcore, but the introspective political type.  Well done.  I forgot what the
members went on to do afterwards, but I think one of the dudes played in gothic
influenced post-hardcore band, INK & DAGGER.  They released something on 
Initial Records, formerly out of West Bloomfield, MI but relocated to Louisville,
Ky, run by the talented business man Andy Rich.  Initial Recs are the folks who
put on 'Krazy Fest' every summer during the late 90's / early '00's.

Elder Cleopa (of the Eastern Orthodox Holy Christian Church) "Fear of God"

This man (saint) is so full of wisdom.
 

Just a Few Things Floating Around in This Here Head of Mine~

Earth First! Journal      Need to do a little more prodding around on this site.  I used to back them 100%.  Not sure what happened but I think I read about some negative, scandalous things they had their hands in.  Then again, I'm guilty of a lot of negative & scandalous things myself....though nothing illegal!


'Zine Scene Revolution      I found this while doing a search for the 'Phoenix Was A Mistake' fanzine.  I just re-read issue #2, and it was a nice little read.  Took me all of 11 minutes to read.  I've had it for about 11 years, so a minute for each year I've owned the 'zine seems fair!!  I have no idea how I arrived at that conclusion.  Also read the entire first (and only?) issue of "XHalfX" fanzine.   Cute 1/2 size cut & paste thingy, done by a woman named  XSeung WhaX   (yes, she has "X's" in her name..... apparently she's super, super straightedge!)  in 1995.  Interviews with Scott Vogel from DESPAIR (then later on, BURIED ALIVE & TERROR), just after SLUGFEST split up, and a guy from ENVY  (the American straightedge ENVY not the Japanese band of the same name).  A couple of rants on females in the hardcore scene & the benefits or downfalls of being vegetarian vs. vegan.   Lots of pictures of all your favorite mid 90's hc bands.  This gal is really enthusiastic about hardcore and seething out of her pores!   I wonder where she is now?   Was this just a passing phase for her, like the vast majority of hardcore kids from the 1990's scene?  Or is she still in love with hardcore?   I mos def realize hardcore / punk is a predominantly youth based scene or movement  (and if it is a movement where is it going?)  but that's usually because many "kids" seem to hang up their proverbial back packs soon after college or high school even.   A few kids, such as the one's who run record labels & play in bands sometimes stick around a lot longer.  Most, however, don't.  (why why why? Is it because "life" just gets in the way? carreers, parenting, family, boredom even?  Who knows!)

I'm currently re-reading "Binocular  Rebellious" (I can't tell what issue # this one is)  and it's fkn awesome looking!!!  The layout is crisp black & white, with lots of vivid drawings of oddly weird black ink sketches & crusty punks in various stages of intoxication.  Also some sweet looking mish-mash collages, of the crusty-anarcho-punk rock variety.   You know the type---pictures of George Bush, the Pope (I think), Hitler, Stalin, swastikas, anarchy symbols, & some pentagrams for good measure.  I like collages & sketches worthy of photocopier enlargement & framing......which is what I'm gonna' do!  Well as soon as I get out of the poor house, unless there's a way to scam free copies at Kinko's like back in the 90's.  Also in this little fanzine (literally --it's 3" x 3") are record reviews of BATHTUB SHITTER (gotta' be one of my favorite band names!), CAMEL (yes, the prog-rock band), URIAH HEEP, FINNTROLL (some kind of metal / crust band, from where I'm not sure), DISCIDER "Drinking To Forget The Future"  (I love that record title!).   Also, essay's on CRASS and "Maximumrocknroll" magazine.  There's a website  Here  but I think it has nothing to do with this 'zine, seeing as how this issue I'm reviewing in from spring / summer 2003.  The zinester's name is Sean and let's see if we can find out more about his current project (s), if any.

Jew Watch Website & Some Words From Me About How I Feel About It---



An excellent website, with a terrible name!!!  LOL, if you are ultra-pc that is. I think the name is kind of funny.  "Jew Watch".......gotta keep our eyes on them jooooooos!!!  All jokes aside, this site has tons of great information on the Zionist pigs.   Plus, info on the dirty banksters (bankers + gangsters = banksters) the media elite, the liars at the helms of the TV and radio stations (radio? who listens to the radio anymore? LOL, I do all the time. And by all the time I mean whenever I'm driving.)  Just a ton of good information to keep your eyes open as to what the Jewish Zionist elite (read: the 1% all the liberals are whining about, but are too afraid to label! The 1% ARE the Zionist's! The Zionist's ARE the 1%!!!! Don't be afraid to say it! But then again it is exactly what the Jews want you to do---be afraid that you're gonna' get labelled "antisemitic.")  Heck, I don't like Nazi's or Neo-Nazi's one iota! But at the same time, the Zionzi's ARE the modern day Nazi's, with their oppressive tactics!  Israel & all her Zionzi partners, including many fundamental Christians who comprise the largest group of non-Jewish Zionists, are holocausting the Palestinians as we speak!  Israhell MUST be stopped, by any means necessary!

"A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon" Excellent Documentary!


By far & wide the BEST documentary on this government backed & made trickery. It is completely obvious that there was NEVER a single American who landed on the moon. Debunk this one, please.


"The Real and Only Truth About This World" Yes, Another 'Conspiracy' Video

This is a long one folks! I certainly can't back everything contained in this documentary, but it DOES give much food for thought. God bless you all.  We are on this journey together.   "If it doesn't come out in the wash, it'll come out in the rinse."
