Full Of Hell – “Weeping Choir”
Check out what’s coming down the pipe on this week’s RECORD OF THE WEEK Blog!!!
FULL OF HELL make their RELAPSE debut with their most explosive album to date, “Weeping Choir”. Dynamic, pissed, and wholly urgent, the highly anticipated “Weeping Choir” is a definitive statement of intent by one of the underground’s most dynamic and virulent entities. FULL OF HELL have once again culled the extreme elements from hardcore, metal, and power electronics to redefine darkness and sheer brutality. Distorted guitars, and ominous, disparate electronics grind and gnash against rapid-fire drumming, as FULL OF HELL take themes of religion, loss, hatred, and set them ablaze. Recorded by the critically acclaimed Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studio, “Weeping Choir” sees FULL OF HELL fully unleashed. Abrasive, confrontational, none equal!

Emerging from a small town in Ohio, JETTY BONES is the musical endeavor of Kelc Galluzzo, who utilizes a core group of friends that help bring the project to life on stage. For what is technically a solo project with a full band mentality, this project is anything but the efforts of one person. Channeling the band\’s namesake, Betty Jones, who broke out of her all girls’ catholic school to remove herself from a situation where she wasn\’t happy, this band exists to encourage people to rise above everyday situations and push for a life with better meaning. The ‘Old Women’ EP is a story of progress, growth, and the development of human connection – something often overlooked today. In a world so focused on outward appearances, Old Women takes you on a journey through one girl\’s mental and emotional attempts to attach to something in a more genuine way, that something being other people.

‘The People’s Choice Music’ is the brainchild of Russian conceptual artists VITALY KOMAR and ALEXANDER MELAMID. In the 90s, the duo conducted a series of polls to determine what aspects were liked and disliked in art. With this data, the two constructed “most wanted” and “most unwanted” paintings based on the results. Experimental musician DAVE SOLDIER was enlisted to compose a musical extension of the project, resulting in The Most Wanted Song and The Most Unwanted Song. NEEDLEJUICE just released DAVE SOLDIER’S “The People’s Choice Music”. After being out of print for over two decades the album will be available in 2 fittingly bizarre LP variants: Pretty Ugly and Wally Wheel.

MATTHEW G. MORGAN brings you the “Kitty 7inch” – Songs that were famous 75+ years ago, now re recorded for some hot, succulent, in-ear action!

Red River Valley is a folk song and a cowboy music standard. It has been covered by everyone from Gene Autry to Connie Francis to Roy Rogers to Woodie Guthrie.

It was such a standard, Johnny Cash wrote and performed a humorous song entitled “Please Don\’t Play Red River Valley” for his 1966 album “Everybody Loves a Nut”.
