Their stunning debut album, UNFUCKWITHABLE, was recorded in a two week period at RANCHO DE LA LUNA by BINGO and DAVID CATCHING. .BARRETT MARTIN and DAVID CATCHING first played together on the QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE groundbreaking album, RATED R, and continue with MOJAVE LORDS.

LINEUP:

Timmy’s Organism – Timmy’s Organism began in the late 2000s as the solo project of Timmy Vulgar, longtime frontman of a string of Detroit punk bands including the Epileptix, Clone Defects, and Human Eye. Vulgar was experimenting at home with four-track recording, using borrowed synthesizers to create ambient percussion for his extremely skewed Beefheartian approach to pop music. The first releases as Timmy’s Organism came in the form of a string of 7″ singles, including a self-titled double 7″ on Sacred Bones. By 2009, Vulgar had brought in bassist Jeff Fournier and drummer Colin Sick to back him up, and Timmy’s Organism expanded into a touring three-piece, existing in tandem with Vulgar’s other highly active vehicle, Human Eye. More 7″s followed, the band leaning toward slightly comedic punk with song titles like “I’m a Nice Guy Now” and “Cold Pizza.” The band released its first album, Rise of the Green Gorilla, on Sacred Bones in 2010 and followed in 2012 with Raw Sewage Roq on In the Red Records.

THING – Rich Crook’s ( LOVER! and Lost Sounds) new project. Featuring local hero, Ryan Sweeney, on the drums!!

The Screwsmen – Jem will not be on the drums this time, but the band stilll rules. Once again, if you like The Oblivians you’ll love this band.

FOND OBJECT MOVIE PREMIERE!!

Rye Coalition: the Story of the Hard Luck Five

8pm October 13th, 2014

Backyard!!


ABOUT THE FILM:

When they signed with one of the world’s biggest record labels, New Jersey’s Rye Coalition was primed to finally get their glory, or so it seemed. Like countless rockers before them, childhood best friends started a band in a basement with a couple simple goals in mind: have fun and play good music. As one of the first bands to develop the new “emo” sound, they were at the forefront of a movement that included Shellac, Sunny Day Real Estate, Jawbreaker and Karp (with whom they later recorded a legendary 12″ split). Rye Coalition’s first recording was a demo cassette tape (1994’s “Dancing Man”, self-released), backed by an East Coast tour in a beat up schoolbus long before most of them had their driver’s license. As their talent and fan base grew, they released albums on indie labels and toured the country for over ten years on bigger and bigger bills: (At-The-Drive-in, Mars Volta, Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters). After gaining momentum from 2002′s “On Top” LP, engineered by Steve Albini, they were signed to Dreamworks Records and none other than Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) came on as their producer. Then, it all imploded. Supplemented with the band’s own home movies, the filmmaker has continuously documented these singular rockers for over a decade, brazenly chronicling choice moments with Rye Coalition (and those who know them well) on tour, at home and in the studio. Although the band was praised by critics and supported by an absurdly dedicated grassroots fan base, somehow these Jersey rockers never got their due. Until now. Featuring: Steve Albini (Shellac), Dave Grohl (Nirvana), Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses), Jared Warren (Melvins). 2014; 77 minutes. Dir. Jenni Matz.
DVD with bonus features out in December.

FOND OBJECT PRESENTS – DON COYOTE / BERKANO / CHURCHYARD – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11TH, 7PM

fondobjct

SATURDAY OCTOBER 11TH 2014
7PM – $5
RAGS & DIGS ROOM
Don Coyote (Nashville, TN) – Don Coyote is a free-spirited, American band from the foothills of Tennessee. Blurring the line between bar band and cult, these juke joint renegades have made a name for themselves as the true underdogs of country music. Coming on strong like a shot of well whiskey, they warm the saddle with blue-collar ballads as diverse as the west is wide. They are sheriffs in merit, outlaws in attitude, and most likely terrible in the sack; but don’t underestimate their performance. This band commands the stage with an unbridled force that could turn George Straight crooked, Sawyer Brown red, and leave the whole room asking “Tammy, why not?”
