What do You Consider Good Grunge Music? 2 Replies

There were a lot of good grunge bands from the late eighties all the way up to present, but there were a lot of shitty ones too.  Through the miasma known as the 90s, what would you consider your…Continue

Where is everybody?

This site is pretty dead, lately.

The Melvins are more "grunge" then the bands that the mainstream classify as grunge! Are most people on here cus they just joined every group or most of you really into the early 90's thing?

Asuang is an umbrella term for creatures that people our imagination. As blood suckers, they engender in us, a fear of the dark, of morbidity, of paleness, of incense. The fear that desires, the fear that suffocates, not just creatures but open spaces and high places. Fear of beings that when looked at mirrors or through other eyes, resemble perhaps, ourselves? Then here maybe, there be monsters?

Asuang then calls not just for darkness but for hallucinogen, psychedelia, kaleidoscopic narratives in whatever genre.

Specifically, we ask for:
1. 1-3 poems/ essays/ flash fiction (less than 500 words, English or Filipino)

2. 1-3 artworks in black/ white (in JPEG format)

3. 1-3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format

4. Critical essays about the small press/ underground publishing/ the culture of fanzines (also under 500 words)

5. Reviews of any issue of Paper Monster Press (and we’ve done 6 so far)
a. Pyrotechnic Poetry 1
b. Pyrotechnic Poetry 2
c. S/trip-hop
d. Dream(pop)
e. Queer Punk
f. SANDIGmaan

6. A theme for 1 print year
a. Issue 1: Atlantis (about forgetting/ resurfacing/ the abyss/ depths/ drowning/ swan diving)
b. Issue 2: Free Tibet (about culture clash/ Buddhism/ heights/ climbing/ pure dizziness of clouds)
c. Issue 3: Time-space Warp (about timezones/ cultural differences/ time and space/ reincarnation/ and the endless echoes we can never reach)
d. Issue 4: Labyrinths (canals/ road bridges/ the strange and devious routes we take to fantasy/ intoxication/ escape)

1. Send all submissions to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com with the heading: ATTN: ASUANG SUBMISSION
2. The deadline for submissions is on May 31, 2012.
3. Payment is one contributor copy and that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from seeing your name in print. ;)

What grunge bands are people listening to at the moment? i always kind of class Melvins as grunge because of the grunge connections, going to see them live soon for the second time. Loads of grungesters there! Also went to see Primus last year and the place looked like 1994! So many grungey people there with some cool band t shirts.

I have vivid memories of riding in my brother's car on the way to High School with the constant smell of marijuana and Alice in Chains' "Down in a Hole" and "Rooster" vibrating the windows.  Along with being a fan of STP, Chemical Brothers and 3 lb. Thrill, I was very much into jam bands such as Phish, Blues Traveller and Medeski, Martin and Wood.  I don't know if they were grunge, but I grew up listening to them and they were popular right around the same time.
