the body is a great doom metal band from providence (originally from little rock). they are the loudest band i’ve ever seen, and one of the slowest as well, and additionally they are total teddybears. they came to the store last week to check it out and drop some stuff off, then me and ML went back to rhode island with them to watch left behind (the kirk cameron movie about the rapture) and eat pancakes with fake, vegan bacon (which looked like huge strips of chewing gum printed with a bacon design on a food printer). it was great, it was like two weird futures that are also both the unmistakable present. lee is the drummer and he’s also the DJ in lorna doom, which is a rap act named after a punk bassist named after a cookie. chip is the guitar player and he’s also in the solo drone act “siege engine” and the yet-to-be-realized “timothy leary” rap persona (screaming in a li’l jon way, but more hoarse, and with no rhymes). in addition to the above items, lee (“dj glorious monster”) left us with some of his mix cds- one that’s all miami bass, one of african funk.
in addition to liking weird religious cult shit, they also really like pogs, and were really excited to see that all the talk about pogs finally sublimated into actual physical pogs.
lee, we need some of those jim jones “this world is not my home” t-shirts!
