OK, after multiple delays (like my sorry ass not being here to
actually have some semblance of a schedule), Electroid webzine is
finally up, though some fine tuning is still inline:

http://undergroundrecords.org/electroid

I's also like to congratulate Potion 13 from Canada for being the
first band within a time space of six weeks to have two number one
songs on the Top 100 charts.  Rock on!

One last note, I will be at Hell's Holiday Party, so anyone who
want's to go to hell, holler....Hellzine is on the way!

Later.

REPTILIAN RECORDS E-LIST
403 S. Broadway, Balt. MD 21231
http://www.reptilianrecords.com

Reptilian has won Baltimore City Papers "Best Record Label"
for 2004.
Here's what they had to say:

Best Record Label
Reptilian Records
403 S. Broadway, (888) 909-6853

Reptilian Records and its proprietor, Chris X, are currently in a
tizzy. The building where X opened his fiercely independent
underground establishment 15 years ago is up for sale, but he
can't afford to buy it. So whether the store is staying or moving,
Reptilian needs to raise some funds to keep everything going
smoothly. But we're not just giving Reptilian propers because we
like the place. The Reptilian imprint has spit out a few bona fide
rib-cage bruisers in the past year. It unleashed the first CD from
Stu Spasm's Lubricated Goat, The Great Old Ones, in a decade, and
recently let loose a rough and tumble live CD, Enough Already, from
New York's ballsy Action Swingers. But its two best outings come
from closer to home. Flowers in the Attic's bare-knuckled CD EP
debut is just as tooth-loosening as it was when it first slapped us
last December. And the Hatebeak/Longmont Potion Castle split 7-inch
is in a class all by itself.

LPC is a long-running Colorado-based recorder of phone
conversations/pranks, and the two "metal interludes" here are
so-so instrumental mayhem. Hatebeak, however, is the heavy trio of
local metal guys Mark and Blake and Waldo, an African gray parrot.
Yes, we're talking bird-squawking death-metal vocals here on two
tracks sublimely titled "Beak of Putrefaction" and "God of Empty
Nest."

Whether or not this is the best underground 7-inch of 2004 remains to
be seen, but that it's the only underground 7-inch covered by
ParrotChronicles.com you can bet your ass.

would be cool too.  They must be willing to travel,
and practice 3-5 times per week.  Practice space is
60 miles north of Atlanta (about a 45 minute drive)
and it's all original (NO COVERS - don't even ask).
