agreed with cbella, part 1 was kinda weaker than other Down albums but still good. Too bad the Down/BLS tour is not hitting Charlotte NC.......

Ha ha! Fvck yes!

I know the Purps is kinda weird, but I really fvckin love that little thing :)

Since I first heard NOLA in 95, these dudes have always satisfied a craving I have for different, killer music...some are more beloved than others, but their records are always interesting and full of sonic chiaroscuro...plus, they fvcking kill it live \m/

was a bit shocked when Rex bailed, but Pat fvcking holds it DOWN, and brings his own wicked bass tone into the magic formula

Fvck YES :)

I'll make sure and send you pics Hellrat when I see Down again May 10th, in Worcester. But yeah, the last e.p. had its moments, but nothing mind blowing. Still love Downs 2nd album as my favorite. Looking forward to this new release also.

Ah Nothing wrong with Down. No offense to Phil but I do not care for his stuff with "The Illegals"
