So the other day, after i posted the old skateboard pics of myself. i thought, damn! that was a long time ago. I would have never thought that I would find myself doing something I was doing over 20 years ago. And, although I took a pretty long break from skateboarding, I believe that once skateboarding is in you, it doesn’t go away. I’m stoked to still be able to get out and ride with some friends.
Though it is agreed, they are the greatest rock n roll band to ever exist…most still seem to overlook how incredibly tightly-niched this band was; their recordings, their live shows, and just them jamming was nothing short of flawless. Every member was a musical genius when it came to their instrument, especially when collaborating with the other members. Without anymore rambling on…here they are, the greatest rock band of all time; Led Zeppelin with ‘the song remains the same’ 1973.
The internet has killed the record industry! Many bands and record labels have been crying about this for quite some time now, but there have been a select few that have decided to do something about it. For instance, The Mars Volta has made their newest release, The Bedlam in Goliath, not only available on traditional formats, but also in digital form on a USB flash drive.
This USB flash drive contains the new album, along with album artwork and the video for “Wax Simulacra.” Each USB flash drive has a 1GB capacity and are Windows and Mac compatible.
And for added value – on the 29th of every month, plug in your flash drive and you can get new content from The Mars Volta all year long directly on your computer. Content includes B-sides, webisodes, limited edition wallpaper, exclusive tracks, and much much more. All at no extra cost!
The fact that they are sold out already has got to tell you something. Hopefully bands and record labels will continue to spend their energy creating new product instead of complaining about the inevitable.
They will be available again in March. You can pre-order at www.themarsvolta.com
