Daily bedlam that works faster and harder than caffeine

Robust stone rockers CARBELLION from Wisconsin, are gearing up for their
3rd longplayer, named Weapons Of Choice, out on 17 March.
Pre-order info here.
To get us all in the right headbanging mood they bombard us with another
punchball piece off the album. It’s called PITY THE BACKSEAT an hommage to
the 1968 classic American novel The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton
Brentz Nitz (drummer): “Pity the Back Seat is my love letter to S.E. (Susan Eloise) Hinton’s novel The Outsiders published in 1967, as well as the subsequent motion picture directed by Francis Ford Coppola released in 1983. The lyrics are based on bits of dialogue from the screenplay and movie. I read this novel in the 7th grade around age 12 and afterward watched the movie. The story affected me on a personal level like no other novel or movie had before.
I found myself connecting with the characters as if they were kids from my own neighborhood. The story about the rich kids (Socials or “Socs”) from one side of the tracks and the poor kids (Greasers) from the other side finding unity over shared hardships and events are the common threads that connect with readers for generations.”
TUTV: The robust stone rockers are riffing and hitting their buts off again
on this cranked-up juggernaut. Fast and furious forward like a runaway train.
For those outsiders about to rock Carbellion salute you.
Pick your fight.
