Top 13 (of the Week)

Sure,you know what's cool. But do you know what's really fuckin' FAR OUT? That's where Advanced Demonology comes in. Every week, (K)en and (S)wilson trudge through the murky waters of the pop culture hellscape, dredging up sparkly morsels of wonder. These are the result of our latest foray into the world of the weird, our wildest, wiggest-out picks of the week. Call it our 13 Point Program.

13. Nocturnal Breed
I like these dudes a lot. Savage thrash metal with a healthy interest in leather-clad ladies. Half of their promo shots (some of which are in the video) involve naked chicks. If you gotta party with metal dudes, I’d go with these creeps. Rock n’ fuckin’ roll! (K)

12. Joy
Freaked out stoned guitar abounds.They are from San Diego. You would think more music like this would come out of a groovy place like San Diego. But if you've ever been there the place is crawling with jocks and military men. I would imagine it's a hard place to be a hippie. (S)

11. Violet and Daisy
The problem with most assassins is, they’re not hot teenage chicks. This movie fixes all that. (K)

10. Sex Church
Welcome to the Sex Church! get on your knees!!! (S)

9. Under the Smogberry Trees
Seriously, I spent so many Sunday nights as a kid with the radio under my pillow listening to the Dr. Demento show. If you don’t have “Fish Heads” or “Kinko the Clown” permanently stuck in your head, you really missed out on a properly warped childhood. Holy fuck, Dr Demento, you are a goddamn gem.  Under the Smogberry Trees is an upcoming documentary about him. Should be nuts. (K)

8. Milk Music  -  Cruise Your Illusion
If you live under a rock like me,  a heavy rock, you might not be hip to these guys. Pitchfork madia plucked them out of the bunch and held them up like a poison apple a few years ago. Since then they've toured the world and been heaped with rave reviews, and have endured endless comparison to Dinosaur Jr. and SST records (how do you compare a band to entire label that had such diverse music???).  They had initially wanted to put out records just themselves, but figured out quickly that it kinda sucks to do that, so they signed to Fat Possum. Cool move. All nonsense indie-music mania aside this is a good rock 'n roll record. Better than the last one.  So keep it up Milk Music. (S)

7. Petite M’Amie
70’s Japanese boner-popping easy listening madness. I can’t even imagine what it was like living this reality. (K)

6. ASG - Blood Drive
This has some promise. Soon to be released on Relapse records. I see they are going on tour with Orange Goblin and Road Saw. I didn't know those band were still together. When I think of the roman Colosseum and gladiators fighting lions I imagine these guys playing. They are Colosseum rock!  (S)

5. They Actually Made That
New web series exposing fucked-up toys that should probably not exist, like a goddamn pregnant Barbie doll. The baby shoots out of the belly. And then it’s instantly flat again. And her make-up is still perfect throughout the ‘delivery’. Yeah, they actually made that. (K)

4. Visigoth - Final Spell
Now this is a band I would have liked to have joined when I was seven, not because of the music but I was obsessed with barbarians! The goths, vandals, the huns, and the Mongols.  This horde of infidels hails from the mysterious land known as Salt Lake City.  Burn it!!! (S)

3. Sounds of Saturn 
Saturn (the planet) emits radio waves. Really fuckin’ scary radio waves. Don’t go to Saturn, it will eat you. (K)

2. Profligate
The dead can dance, you can do the death dance and dance till you die. If you're involved with any of those death disco past times I'm guessing your listening to these Philadelphia tripsters. (S)

1. Deap Vally
Whoa! Like '74 Heart, with no access to shower facilities but lots and lots of pot. (K)
