Aug 2014 14:45PM EDT

With Solomon Olds (SoulGlow Activatur) no longer being on the mic, the sound is new - yet familiar. While Jacob Olds (Crouton) and Josh Olds (Fatty) have their own sounds and textures, the new music still sounds like FF5.

Walter Bonedale Hanging Around the John Ryle House

Concert Review: John Ryle House in Haledon, NJ, 7/12/14

Jul 2014 14:44PM EDT

The last time I went to a show at the John Ryle House in Haledon, NJ, bayonets were discovered in the garage by a couple of people who had consumed an exorbitant amount of alcohol.

Because Omegalith and Huge Pupils were playing.READ MORE

Jun 2014 00:14AM EDT
