Do you prefer seeing Alphaville sing through a golden microphone, or not use any microphone at all?
It glitched. I always liked this game.
Yes, you probably have this already! But I was informed by a friend that the rips of this record that he was finding to download were ccrraappppyy. So I ripped it anew. Plus I scanned all the inserts.
Their music is frantic and frenzied, with multiple vocalists caught within a barrage of sound. Following the lyrics is crucial to appreciating this record. Like many bands from Gainesville, Florida in the late ’90s, their lyrics/messages focus a lot on being sincere and engaged and not materialistic and on NOT being like those other hardcore punks who are laming out the scene.

Click here to listen to a track. (uh, sorry, I usually embed a player in the posts, but I had already uploaded this to a different folder… anyway.)
Assfactor 4 – Closed Captioning for the Blind.
Out in 1994, on the All The President’s Men compilation.

Their 7” on Repercussion is one of my faves. But they put out a lot of stuff! I like how all the members sing (on different songs).
Ooh, tinymixtapes.com updated the writers pages, so you can now easily see all the comics I’ve done for them. Check out my page here. I had one posted a couple days ago, called The Hairbrush of Nalsprinor. It’s a fantasy comic about a magical hairbrush!
I have a few more in the queue right now, and like four unfinished (somewhat ambitious) comics that I hope to complete soon.
