I'm so friggin' bored!

It would seem everyone is out enjoying their lives, as they should be, as I should be too.

I'm in a bitch of a mood. Sony.com (whatever, I can't face finding the actual name so that will have to do. Sony has something to do with the name.) is taking the piss. It lets me log in but says I need to reply to the confirmation email that is supposedly in my inbox. Of course there isn't one so I click the box that says "send another email" and nothing happens. It's enough to make me scream, and before you think that just a figure of speech...think again! I'm ready to walk away from the damn computer and never return!

To stop my stress levels raising any further, I'm going to go on about Crumb again.

I know I sound like a broken record, but I just want everyone to give these guys a chance. They aren't that popular here either, which is just wrong! They've been at it since high school and where most bands would have given up, they've kept the faith and are still going strong, doing what they love, I can't help but admire that.

I've stolen this from the Official Crumb website. It's from the Dominion Post, one of the countries biggest news papers.

"It's not easy being a humble rock'n'roll band in this day and age when so often the public demand a point of difference. But Wellington lads CRUMB have stuck to their guns and on their debut show how they have won a solid audience with their hard rocking ways. Sounding like an antipodean Foo Fighters it's all big riffs, blood, sweat and beers with the opening Julie Got Married providing a bit of mid-period Motorhead deja vu as Aaron Passmore's guitar hits hard as the rhythm section of drummer John Davidson and bassist Vinnie Menon drive you along that gravel road with wreckless glee. Nice to See You sees vocalist Carter Nixon boast of a life of one-night stands on the road "I got your number, but not your name and you are never gonna see me again" before the slowburning confessional Pick Up The Pieces. As Mick once sang, it's only rock'n'roll but I like it."
- Dominion Post

This is from Rip It Up magazine:

"With a reputation as an awesome live rock act the natural progression for CRUMB was to record a great album and this is a fantastic rock release...includes songs like Pick Up The Pieces and Got It All which have genuine cross-over appeal...it also contains rockier tracks like Hot Lips and Gasoline...With a real rock'n'roll ethos, the album is named after the state they left their hotel room in during the time they recorded it. So Dirty, Everyday is an album with tracks that will appeal to just about everyone."
- Rip It Up

("...an album with tracks that will appeal to just about everyone."

See? I'm not lying when I say you'll probably love them if you heard them!)

And for aesthetic purposes...

This is a direct order...

GO TO THE OFFICIAL CRUMB WEBSITE AND DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR, DOWNLOAD SOME OF THEIR HOT ROCKING TRACKS. YOU WILL THANK ME FOR IT LATER!

(NB: Please don't describe how to use a LJ cut, I already know how. I didn't use one for a reason.)

Love me, love my CRUMB!
