Bomb the Music Industry!

Apart from this shit being my moto in life or something, it's also a name of a very interesting project. I guess you can call them a SkaPunk band, but I wouldn't. I never heard SkaPunk like this. They record at home, with home equipment and distribute all of their albums (and their side projects' albums) for free download even without my help, or anybody else's, in the MP3 blog community, for that matter. Great lyrics, very cynical and "scene-centered", that's when he's not singing about another day of watching TV, alone. Anyway, this is really interesting, I would recommend to download the latest one first, cuz the first and second ones are what you would call "acquired taste", and the latest one also contains a Tom Waits cover. I'm also adding what the main songwriter and producer in this band, Jeff Rosenstock, says about each album, just to give you a general idea of what's going on there:

2005 - Album Minus Band

"The debut full-length album from Bomb the Music Industry! Recorded by ex-Arrogant Sons of Bitches frontman, Jeff Rosenstock in a bedroom as an unexpected creative outburst during a month-long sobriety spree. Unlicensed cover songs. Unlicensed audio samples. Great times."

2005 - To Leave Or Die In Long Island

"Soon to be reissued on limited edition colored vinyl and picture disc, this mini-album documents the experience of being a broke musician in Long Island and solidifies the signature Bomb the Music Industry! sound. Sing-alongs, drum machines, synthesizers, saxophones played faster than fuck."

2006 - Goodbye Cool World

"Call it whatever you want! Post-ska! Laptop punk! This is the long awaited "difficult third album" (to put it in billy bragg terms) from ex-Arrogant Sons of Bitches frontman, Jeff Rosenstock. Synthesizers! Horns! Guitars! (fake) Drums! No merchandise just rock!"
