Remember 6 weeks ago, when I posted about Mates of State
? Probably not. At the time I said I was going to do some postings about married bands. Then I kind of didn't have time to do it, and then I forgot, and then I remembered, but I got busy again and didn't have time to do it. Finally, amid great fanfare, here is the second "married band" mp3. By the Like Young, I give you:The Like Young - Out to Get Me
(link goes to an outside page owned by me with the song)
Unlike Mates of State, this is straight ahead, kick-ass rock. No keyboards, no frills. Just stripped-down guitar and drum music. It makes me believe in rock again... that maybe it can be saved and the Sugar Rays and Coldplays of the world will be killed and mocked and everyone will have a good laugh at the days when rock sucked.
The Like Young consist of Amanda (drums, vocals) and Joe Ziemba (guitar, vocals). I first heard about them in this Punk Planet article
when the album So Serious (from which today's song is taken) was released.I give So Serious 4 thumbs way up, and recomend you listen to "Worry a Lot" (track 3) and "Sabine & Me" (track 5, video here
) if you like today's song. If you don't, well, you must be an old lady wearing a diaper and accidentally surfed in here looking for a way to dispose of your own poop... perhaps you want to put it in a box?
The Like Young also have a new record coming out in 3 weeks, so this is pretty good timing. Check out another free MP3 from Polyvinyl
Records:TLY - For Money or Love

TLY stuff (don't get from amazon... they're charging 17 bucks for a 10 dollar record).
PS - I know that posts have been few and far between, lately, and they're bound to get worse. That's because Mrs. DIB and I will be leaving the country for a while, starting in August this year. We won't be back in the world
until March 2007. We'll try to chronicle our adventures either here or on another blog, but when the time comes for us to leave, I'll let everyone know. Thanks for your continued patronage!
PPS - MP3's are for trial purposes only. If you like the song, go buy the album. If not, delete and move along, though I'm not sure how anyone could dislike TLY.
