SPEAKING OF YAKUZA…
I’m pretty bummed I couldn’t make it to Yakuza’s show in Brooklyn last night; last I spoke to Vince, he was gonna try and go, but I don’t know if he made it, either.
In any case, at least I can console myself with Justin Broadrick’s remix of Yakuza’s “The Blinding,” which is currently being hosted by Pitchfork (I fucking hate hate HATE fucking Pitchfork, but they have the song, so I’m powerless).
In case you’re retarded or were only just recently released from a Vietnam POW camp or something, Mr. Broadrick is formerly of Napalm Death and Godflesh, and currently fronts shoegaze outfit Jesu. In other words, Broadrick + Yakuza = Good.
