    Pastepunk Comes To An End
    November 28 2012 // Posted by Jordan

    After more than 14 years of existence, it is time to close the doors on Pastepunk. I have long told myself that when the energy and excitement in doing the site was not there, it was time to put it to rest. Truthfully, it’s been time for awhile now, and I am sure that many of you have realized that through the sporadic posting and general pairing down of content. I’ve never wanted Pastepunk to turn into something that lacks commitment, so I think the song below (“All or Nothing”) from CAULDRON is most appropriate.

    Thank you to everyone who has helped out along the way. I cannot put into words the immense gratitude I feel from having the support of our readers, and the bands, labels, and beloved PR firms that have shown an interest in what we were about. The incredible hard work that drives the gears of the independent music scene should be an inspiration to all, and I know that I will continue to be impressed by the lengths people go through to do great things on their own terms. To paraphrase one of my favorite SILENT MAJORITY songs, “No I’m Not”, this was my therapy, this was my outlet, this zine her tape recorder, this platform, a leather couch. I will continue to maintain the @pastepunk Twitter account, please feel free to reach out. The site will also be kept online for at least a year for archive purposes.

    Finally – I did an interview with ScenePointBlank in August for an upcoming “the coalition of the webzines” feature. They graciously allowed me to post it on the site as a “some last words” entry. Please check it out here, and look for the upcoming SPB feature which I expect to be well worth reading.

    Five Favorite Releases of 2012

    1. WHITE LUNG – Sorry
    2. MAKE DO AND MEND – Everything You Ever Loved
    3. CONVERGE – All We Love We Leave Behind
    4. STRIFE – Witness A Rebirth
    5. HOT WATER MUSIC – Exister

    And here’s a note from our senior contributor James Hepplewhite, to which I owe my sincere appreciation:

    Thank you all for reading. Pastepunk was something special and I’m overjoyed to have done it. To the PR firms, labels and everyone who offered content, thank you. To the bands that took the time to talk to us, thank you even more. All this madness ultimately revolves around your art. Don’t ever forget that. Thank you Jordan, for taking me on. Time to be someone else. Love, James Hepplewhite.

    ya, jordan posts over at the other board i frequent... a collection of pr.net-ters, pastepunkers and all the music fans and musicians who joined in along the way. so there was a thread on wednesday simply titled :( with RIP pastepunk in the body of the OP. i'm honestly surprised jordan was able to keep pastepunk going for so long. he's an attorney with 2 young children and when i think about that, i feel guilty about dropping my level of commitment at pr.net when i got a job right after college and then again when i got married.

    i think the org'll be around a while... they got bought up by a media company and have a good bucket of contributors. i hope it sticks around (although, i'm a bit guilty of not visiting as frequently as i did 10 yrs ago) because if all we're left with is absolutepunk, it'll be a sad day. that site is garbage.

    edit: oh and last summer there were talks of a pr.net resurrection but we all keep going down different paths so it's still up in the air.

    New Nick Cave single - "We No Who U R"

    So far I'm liking it. As one of the few people who thought Dig Lazarus Dig was awful, I like the new direction.

    Hmmm...Grohl...Olivieri...and now Reznor. It's been a while since the last QOTSA, which was kinda lackluster, so I am expecting good things here.

    Kyuss/Kyuss Lives! Reform as New Band Vista Chino | News | Pitchfork

    Bear with me here, because the lineage of these bands is a bit tricky to follow: First there was a California stoner-rock band called Kyuss, who broke up in the mid-90s. Josh Homme went on to lead Queens of the Stone Age, which also included former Kyuss member Nick Oliveri. Homme kicked Oliveri out of QOTSA in 2004.

    In 2010, former Kyuss members Oliveri, John Garcia, and Brant Bjork formed Kyuss Lives!, performing old Kyuss material. Earlier this year, Homme and former Kyuss member Scott Reeder filed a lawsuit accusing the members of Kyuss Lives! of trademark infringement and consumer fraud.

    Now, the members of Kyuss Lives! have started a new project called Vista Chino. It's unclear whether or not the name change is a direct result of legal action, but the new act is made up of Kyuss/Kyuss Lives! members Oliveri (who seems to be working with Queens of the Stone Age again), Garcia, and Bjork, along with guitarist Bruno Fevery.
    So, in other words, Kyuss Lives! = Vista Chino

    Former GN'R Guitarist Izzy Stradlin Releases New Single | Rock News | Eddie Trunk | EddieTrunk.com

    I am a confessed G'n'R fan still...Izzy has virtually disappeared from the face of the earth. An interesting reappearance at the very least.
