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. Metal Queens channel on youtube 
This channel compiles rare videos of female metal screamers from the 80’s and there’s a couple really rare/awesome clips in there, including Belgian devil-worshippers Acid and New York lingerie abusers Blacklace! (K)

 12. Hackamore Brick
Kama Sutra. What have we been telling you guys on the podcast? Everything they put out was great. Lost 70's Cult Band? I never met anyone who was in the Hackamore Brick cult cause I would of joined many goddamn years ago. This is right up your filthy, seedy, dirty little alley. (S)

11. Bloearg
The problem with Logan's Run? Not enough thrash metal. Bloearg fuckin' fixed that. (K)

10. Big Eyes - Almost Famous
That's pretty much all of these days-Almost Famous. A bunch of kids move from Jersey to Oregon. Why? Maybe to make a really awesome Rock 'n Roll Record. (S)

9. Black Metal Antiquarium
Wanna see cool old photos of weirdos, like Tom Warrior wearing a fuckin' LA Guns shirt? Check out the Black Metal Antiquarium! (K)

8. The Fall - Re-Mit
The new record is out. It's their 2,000th release? It's fucking awesome. Mark E. Smith is the  Merlin the Magician of outsider rock 'n roll. (S)

7. Witches of God
Poppy, Bolanesque(!) stoner-doom jams pressed on tasty wax with a striking naked chicks cover. If you slept on the Bloody Hammers thing and missed out, well, the Witches of God thing is just like the Bloody Hammers thing. So don’t miss out this time! (K)

6. Bad Noids
The Cleveland metro area has been breeding disenfranchised youth going all the way back to the Civil War.  Bad Noids are the latest crop of nihilists from the region to pick up an axe and a can of beer. This is some serious "folk" music (Hardcore is folk music) for people who are not having any fucking fun in life. Imagine stumbling on to this picnic in the woods? Much love. (S)

5. What It's Really Like to Work in a Music Store
I used to have a friend who worked at a music store. It was his dream job until he finally got the gig. It turned him into a neurotic wreck. He didn’t play his guitar for years after that dumb fuckin’ job. This dude, who posts short video snapshots of his life selling guitars and keyboards to people who have no business owning guitars or keyboards, clearly shares my pal’s pain. Funtimes. (K)

4. PC Worship
This came suggested to us by the kids in Lantern. It's really good. Undefinable weirdo rock 'n roll that  infuses field recordings with break neck beats, psychedelic, folk and prog-ness. Out-tastic.  (S)

3. Going Attractions
Probably the second greatest American invention (we gotta give rock n’roll top-billing), drive-ins were the perfect spot to lose your virginity or your mind. There still isn’t a better way to see cinematic trash like Astro Zombies or Bloodsucking Freaks or Hobo With a Shotgun. This new doc tells the whole sordid story. Bring ‘em back already! (K)

2. Kassidat: Raw 45s from Morocco
From the folks at dust to digital. This heat wave won't break and I feel like I'm melting. I needed some severely hot weather music to get me through. (S)

1. Blood Ceremony
I know, there’s a ton of femme-fronted “occult rock” bands out there and that we’ve mentioned just about all of ‘em here on the Top 13, but I am going on record to say that Canadian doom-folkers Blood Ceremony – who have a great new album out, The Eldritch Dark – are the best of the bunch. Why? Because FLUTES, MOTHERFUCKER. (K)

  1. I saw Blood Ceremony play a few weeks ago. If they come to your town, go - they're fucking great live.
