RTTP Blurb
well, this passed week or so a lot of things (as usual) happened on RTTP

first off, the first annual Snakenet: Northern Aggression Fest went down. http://www.snakenet.com came up with a bunch of bands and put on a super festival for us.


The book "Choosing Death" by Albert Mudrian came out. This book is available in B&N, Borders, and nubury comics (probably other places too). It cronicales a lof of the early death metal/Grindcore scene in the US and in Europe.
Note worthy: this book features ~6 pictures that I took.


Hoodied sweatshirts have been selling very well, if you want one, you can order only (with paypal/credit cards through pay pal, byt clicking here. They are $30 and come in sizes s-xxl.

Spotlight
yeah! the_network. no, not the new band by billy joe from green day. Out of the late 90's new hampshire bands of Ookla the mok* and the Fault** in the backwoods of New Hampshire's south, comes the newest super group, the_network. members of the fault (kevin, tim, and scott) got sick of being in that band (in the end they were just trying to make up crazy stuff to play)

and ookla the mok was over. when they wanted to make a new band up, they pulled in pete (ex-ookla the mok) in with them.

the last member being nate (ex-halo suffocation machine***/As I bleed).

add samples and there is the inception of the_network!

so fast forward to 2002 when everyone is talking about this band that no one has heard of an how their show randomly at the lawrence knigs of columbus.

I missed that show, but from what I gather, the ground openned up and an out-swelling of angels and demons covered the crowd in a euphoric spray of whiskey and morphine after having covered their bodies in gapping slash marks. Kids lost thier minds.

for the next almost year, the_network remained an enigmatic mystery, retreating back to the woods of new hampshire and not playing any shows.
finally, April 19, 2003, I got a chance to see them at the bombshelter,

mixing spazzy hardcore, noise, and berzerker-esque drum beats they terrorized the crowd.

watching them is to sit there, fearing for your life while being dumb-founded. like sitting and staring at a nuclear bomb going off.

needless to say, pete was crawling all over the pipes on the ceiling. During shows, I always try to keep one eye on him so that I don't get a errant mic-stand wrapped around my head.
