Blake Schwarzenbach's 2013 Mobile Disco Decathlon
[PLATINUM THUG PAYBACK EDITION]
The decathlon is a combined event
Blake Schwarzenbach (Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil, Forgetters) and his emerging alter egos, Chris Lager (DJ/Producer:Forgetters,O.C.D.,Chris Lager) and O.C.D. (Rapper/Compulsive:Original Guitar Dracula, Ole Crazy Disorder, Often Cutz Deep, etc.)are coming to your town soon! The show will feature Blake, Chris, and O.C.D. on a single stage, playing records, singing songs, spittin', mixing, and plain old storytelling. Expect some catalog. The event is modeled on the Greek "Decathlon," renowned for its rigor and mixed martial artistry. Go mobile, Go Chris Go!
Ben Davis and the Jetts
Somewhere between Elvis Presley’s honorable discharge and his immediate sequestration under Colonel Parker’s fleshy, bejeweled wing, there existed a window of opportunity. What if, instead of “Paradise, Hawaiian Style,” we’d heard a deeper exploration of country and gospel music; what if he’d been backed by the Funk Brothers or the Wrecking Crew; what if Americana hadn’t come to mean either at best a rote recitation of Old Time music or at worst a bland, formulaic, slightly twangy version of Adult Contemporary? What if songs of genuine yearning, resolve, pain, and triumph drew in equal measure from both Hank Williams’ high lonesome and D. Boon’s credo, “Punk is whatever we made it to be.”?
J Kutchma and the Five Fifths are interested in trying to find out what that could sound like. This is, of course, not to say that the band bears any resemblance to the rhythm section/force of nature behind Motown’s hits or the greatest punk rock trio ever to climb in a van, only that the urgency with which they played, the trust they had in their bandmates, and the willingness to stumble upon How A Song Should Sound, to tear up the chart and start over—these are the hardest and best parts of playing music, and they’re the whole reason these five got together in the first place.
