Jarboe

Ex-Swans dark goddess Jarboe is currently touring Europe until the end of June, but has scheduled a lone date in the US, June 27th at Santos Party House with IUD (mems-Gang Gang Dance), Bloody Panda, and Cult of Youth! Tickets are on sale.

Jarboe is currently touring with members of NYC's own Inswarm as well as Erik Wunder, half of the amazing Cobalt, on her current trek through Europe (and in NYC). So where is the other half of Cobalt? Serving in Iraq, according to Decibel:

The last time I talked to Erik, about a year ago, he mentioned that you had about a year left in your time with the Army. Are you indeed close to being finished, or will you be serving for longer?

I reenlisted for 5 more years. I fucking love the Army and I am an excellent Soldier. This is where I belong, in another country with a gun in my hand.

Just how dangerous has it been for you over there?

I will put it this way, 90% of people in Iraq are on huge camps called FOB's with huge intertwined security systems and people there don't have a thing in the world to be worried about. I, on the other hand, have spent 3 days on a FOB in the last few months and am living IN the population and gunfire and explosions are heard every day where I sleep. The threat is very real but we are prepared.

Yikes.

Fade Kainer of Inswarm, in addition to playing with Jarboe, recently joined local faves Batillus, contributing his shredded vox and fx. Batillus has only played one show in this configuration thus far, and will revert back to trio formation on June 27th (while Kainer is playing Santos Party House) and play a previously unreleased and comparatively minimalistic piece "Tunguska" (downloadable above) in Providence, RI. The June 27th show is part of a handful of Northeast dates that the band has scheduled with Elder and Riff Cannon.

Coming soon to the USA. FOB's = concentration camps

big dicks are needed to ensure that bitches like us can remain in the comfort of our home/workplace and post comments on BV . we're only built to snark ,moan and complain, while men like him are built to do the things we're incapable of.

Projecting again? What's wrong with picking up a gun? What if someone didn't give you the option of "sausage slurping" to get out of a possibly fatal situation? You wouldn't pick up a gun and kill? Sure you would. Or you're suicidal.

She tries WAYYYY too hard.

Also, for being such a badass, that press photo is so completely doctored that she might as well have had her balls botoxed, too.

it makes me sick how gutless people are.

in other countries people actually have some pride in themselves and their country. here people like that are derided as 'amerinazis' by the holier than thou whiny npr new yorker reading iphone asshole contingent, who are probably the biggest closet racist/elitists of all.

i'm fully against the reasons for the iraq war but seeing beheadings and acid attacks and rapes and shit on tv everyday it pisses me off and makes me want to grab a gun and rid the world of these backwards caveman extremist murdering animals. what gives them the right to hold people hostage? fuck them. drop the bomb. exterminate them all.

Sounds like a segment for the next Williamsburg "Hipster Olympics." Which trust-fund punk (in the prison sense of the term) will slurp first?

Long live the military industrial complex! Deceiving nitwits into giving up their lives and thinking they're "heroes" since 1937.

So one half is in Iraq. This means he's a terrorist, right?

Posted by Anonymous | May 28, 2009 8:20 PM

Over one million innocent civilians killed in Iraq from American troops.


Yup, definitely smells like a terrorist to me. Plus he makes shitty music to boot!
