“329 prepared dc-motors, cotton balls, toluene tank” – Zimoun
I ran across Brock Berrigan’s soundcloud page by pure chance, but I immediately liked everything I heard. No seriously, everything. I’m not sure I can explain how difficult it was to pick a single song to post, well actually I can: it was very difficult. If yr looking for smooth hip hop beats & tremendously soulful sampling then stop looking & start listening. Today’s song is the title track from Brock’s album “Four Walls and an Amplifier“.
Also, he wears a rooster mask. NBD.

Over the next three weeks Clint & I will be travelling around Asia, meaning the Sharx Staff will be reduced by two-thirds, thus rendering us pretty much unable to post everyday. So, when you start seeing posts with very little write-up & our post-rate dropping, don’t worry. Sharx isn’t going away, we just really needed to travel.
we were the last kids to still have
wear shorts to skool
and be beaten with sticks
our parents dreamed of a

all their dreams came true
Sure, this song came out in 1982, but based on the way tons of bands sound today (many of which I listen to & love) this song could very well have been released this year… & I would have blogged about it.
Also, how killer is this music video?
Clint had the opportunity to meet these rad dudes a little while back. The lo-fi recording of “Pretty Girls In Pretty Tights” is the best of example of why Do512 is calling them a local band you should be listening to. Yeah sure, this track’s lyrics tell the story of a creeper, but whatever.
