“Rational Discourse is Gay”

Anal Trump’s first 100 songs

A one-inch album full of hate for Donald Trump.
A one-inch album full of hate for Donald Trump.

Anal Trump, Rob Crow’s not-so-secret collaboration (under pseudonyms) with Cattle Decapitation’s Travis Ryan, dropped their album The First 100 Songs via Joyful Noise on Election Day. It features selections from each of their previous EPs and 30 new songs, including tracks such as “Rational Discourse is Gay,” “Some Mexicans Aren’t Rapists,” and “Harriet Tubman is, Like, a 3.” Released on CD and colored vinyl with a silk-screened B-side, it includes three unreleased EPs: Thoughts, Prayers, and The Golden Age of Willful Ignorance. The group created their own fundraising Super PAC, with the goal of “supporting organizations that make Trump shit.” Donation rewards are claimed (though not confirmed) to include a $10,000 package featuring all 100 songs from the album pressed onto 100 individual one-inch records.

Andy Robinson, who specializes in playing acoustic instruments like the mountain dulcimer and kalimba, landed an endorsement deal with Louson Drums. Based in Pittsburgh, the family-owned company manufactures a wearable cajon drum with a removable external snare system and adjustable sound hole cover that Robinson will be promoting. Robinson’s most recent album Andyland was marketed with a series of impromptu performances at area yard sales and swap meets.

Point Loma High grad Jason Scheff, who spent over 30 years with hit machine Chicago before leaving that band two years ago, performed a trio of Rush songs with Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson on October 28. The set was part of the 11th annual Scott Medlock-Robbie Krieger Gold Classic All-Star Concert to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at the Saddlerock Ranch. Scheff took on Geddy Lee’s bass and vocal parts for renditions of “Limelight,” “The Spirit of Radio,” and “Freewill” that can be found online.

The Professor and his robot

The first of 20 related upcoming releases from Professor B. Miller (aka SDSU English Department alumnus Michael Buchmiller) and his Satanic Puppeteer Orchestra, the Stop By the Supermarket EP, debuts November 24 with a rare live performance at Lestat’s. As always, the Professor will be accompanied solely by his homemade robot SPO-20, whose vocals are synthesized using a vintage Windows XP program. EP song titles include "Shopping List," "Shelf Space," "Expiration Date," "Price Check," and "Paper or Plastic?"

Past Event

Satanic Puppeteer Orchestra

Planet B, featuring Justin Pearson and Gabe Serbian of the Locust, released a video for their new single “Crustland,” featuring Kool Keith (Ultramagnetic MCs), taken from their self-titled debut full-length due November 23.

Soul singer Andra Day, who recently appeared at the Newport Jazz Festival, has a new single called “Amen” (released via Warner Bros. Records) that can be heard in an ad campaign for Genesis G80.

Spanish organizers of next summer’s Resurrection Fest dropped As I Lay Dying from the lineup due to negative backlash over returning frontman Tim Lambesis, who served prison time over a murder-for-hire plot against his estranged wife.

Singer-guitarist Richard Filaccio has a new lo-fi rock single, “My Deconstruction.” His early '80s band Puppies has enjoyed new popularity, or at least infamy, after Jimmy Fallon spotlighted the long-gone but fondly-recalled band on the Tonight Show, in a Do Not Play segment that featured both an album cover and a portion of the song "Cat Food," which the house band played with Questlove on vocals.

Due January 18 via the local Redwoods Music label, the upcoming sophomore album from Dani Bell & the Tarantist, Wide Eyed, will sport cover artwork by John Gourley of Portugal. The Man. A video for the track "Mystery" debuted this week on the Glide Magazine website.

Hideout released their first new song since 2017, "Picture Falling," which was also shot as a video, co-directed by the song's guest vocalist, Scarlett Stephenson-Connolly.

Scott Mathiasen's upcoming solo album Boxcar Road (due in December), features him playing all guitars, bass, harmonica, and handling vocals, with co-producer Rene Montes covering drums. .
