A.J., bassist and chief songwriter for those crazed garage-punkers from San Juan, Davila 666, released his first solo effort "Terror Amor" in February of this year. To take it on the road, he put together a band under the same name as the LP and that combo, which includes another Davila 666 alum in lead guitarist Johnny Otis Davila, has spent all of 2014 touring the world, becoming super tight and super prolific, cranking out enough new material for a second LP in 2014. That album, "Beibi", will be out soon on Burger Records.

The Blind Shake
As the Minneapolis three-piece gets set for its third appearance at WFMU, we turn it over to Midheaven for the blurb: The Blind Shake crafts dense, massive locomotive music—powerful sounds with the ability to careen through one cinematic, post-apocalyptic chase scene after another. The band’s latest album Breakfast of Failures comes clanging and crashing through these confused times. With six full-length albums to their credit, several singles, three collaborations with psych legend Michael Yonkers and another with downstroke warrior John Reis, The Blind Shake continues to push the sliding scale between catchy punk songs and pitch-red noise.
