Meat Beat Manifesto

In May, 2007 Jack Dangers released a double CD of old Meat Beat Manifesto demos, as well as an instrumental version of the Perennial Divide album, Purge, entitled Archive Things 1982-88 / Purged. MBM's 9th studio album, Autoimmune, was released on April 7, 2008 in Europe via Planet Mu Records and on April 8, 2008 in the US and Canada via Metropolis Records. According to the band's website, Z-Trip is again collaborating on several tracks. The lead single, "Guns And Lovers" was released as a digital single via iTunes on March 18, 2008, while the track "Lonely Soldier" was released as a single via [Wikipedia]
Meat Beat Manifesto played their first of two east coast shows at Bowery Ballroom in NYC last night (11/19). NYC's Excepter opened. The next Meat Beat performance is this weekend at Brainwaves in Boston. More pictures from Bowery below...

Excepter was a waste of electricity... just a bunch of people making noise at random times... i can't say this enough, they were horrible!... just because you CAN make noise, does not mean that you SHOULD.

"why is there a picture of applewhite next to obama?"

This is great.
Obama is basically becoming a religious figure, while at the same time leading us to doom. Obama is pro-war, look at who he is appointing to his Cabinet. He has no qualms with attacking Iran, and when we do so it will surely be WWIII.

The happy guy leading us to mass suicide.

Do you have any setlist information? I'm wondering if this set is similar to those on the "Autoimmune" tour earlier this year?

What constitutes a "great show" from Meat Beat Manifesto (huh huh, what a funny name, huh huh)?

Tired hip hop clich├ęs mixed with mediocre electronic fiddling?

Here's a recording of the Excepter set:

You should really listen to some Excepter outside of this one interaction. They've got some of the best, most intriguing, most punishing, most glorious music I've ever heard. And, allow me a moment, I've heard a lot more music than you have. Doesn't mean I have good taste. Just means I've spent time parsing the bullshit. Excepter are not bullshit.
