Git Some - Cosmic Rock

Git Some hail from Denver, Colorado and may be on your radar as the band that half of Planes Mistaken For Stars morphed into after their demise. Not that you could tell by looking at that hippie-ass cover or anything. It's been a while since I saw a Planes show, but historically, if anyone was long-haired and naked there you can bet that it would be a drunk dude. Maybe things have changed, or it's just a West Coast thing, but Git Some are more hate-edge than Haight Ashbury.

Think Black Flag. Git Some are slower than you'd expect, but it's still pretty spirited. I can see them in a sweaty basement or UK squat pretty easily, although it's still catchy enough that you don't have to have a facial tattoo or hop a freight to like them. They have a drummer who pounds the hell out of the kit and a three other guys that rage at least as hard. It might also help to smoke a ton of weed beforehand, just so you're all on the same page. Git Some do commit the transgression of having a singer who just sings, which personally I find troubling. Luke is from the Rollins/Yow school of frontmen, which is a step in the right direction, but I'm going to reserve judgment until they make it to this side of the country.

That doesn't look like it's going to happen anytime soon, as the gents leave for two months of EU/UK touring in the next day or so. Playing every day, too. No rest for the weedy, or weary, at least. Git Some have a split with In The Red (Mike from Gunmoll) on 1-2-3-4 Go (with Cristy Road artwork) that you can get here. The full-length is also available from our counting friends. Link for Cosmic Rock is here. Buy them shits.

As soon as the chilly winds Abercrombie Polos initially start to blow every year as autumn sets in; people go to their closets Abercrombie Polos and pull out their sweaters dog coats and ed hardy Hats jackets to ensure that they are comfortable as the temperature drops. Your Ed Hardy Sale dog deserves this equal treatment so when you pull out yours, do Ed Hardy Sale remember to pull out your dog's warm dog clothes as well.If the night is chilly, but Ed Hardy Swimwear not quite freezing, even something as Ed Hardy Swimwear simple as a warm dog sweater will help you to keep your dog warm.
