Chino Horde LP
Another feel good hit of the summer. I admittedly was late to the Chino Horde party. Although I loved (and still do love Current) I somehow never really got around to listening to the Horde. I think others can probably pay better homage to this one than I can, but needless to say I have been rocking it out recently and I am falling in love with it and the song Arson is so great that everyone should just stop what they are doing and listen to it right now..
Chino Horde were somewhat similar to Current in sound although they threw a bit more of that good old rock and roll into the mix. Imagine rock and roll being played with the passion of Rites of Spring and you are damn near close to the unbridled splendor of this record.
I was looking up some info on Chino Horde and I came across the Towncraft website. It seems to be a sort of chronicle of the Little Rock, AR music scene and has some really good anecdotes of Chino Horde shows and other related topics from people that grew up there or travelled with the band. You should go check it out and listen to this record while you do.
Thats is all folks. Reflective moods and the slow descent of the summer into fall. Does anyone else feel it? The days get shorter.
One last thing. I am looking for the LP version of Stop It!! - Self Made Maps. It is OOP, but if any of you have it and are willing to part with it hit me up. I absolutely love the artwork on it and the CD packaging just doesnt do it justice. If any of you havent heard that record than you are missing out. Easily one of the best records of the past few years...
