Hurry Up and Get Some Juice for the Juiceman

Here's a notification for those unaware that mister Andy "Falco" Falkous and Jack Egglestone of the band that's better than your band, McLusky, have joined forces with former Jarcrew member Kelson Mathias to become the Future of the Left. Did you like McLusky? I'll give 5:4 odds that you may end up liking Future of the Left. Falkous shouting, brutish bass and drums, and a rude guitar lead warm up a cold fall day. The one potential caveat for some people? Keyboards. They released their debut album out in the UK on Too Pure in September. It's called Curses and according to Falco's myspace blog it's "It's 37 minutes and 13 seconds long, an Aries*, and enjoys long country walks, alfresco bathing and revenge." I have no clue when the US release date is, though it's hopefully in time for the Festivus holiday.

Your pity sets the bar

Future of the Left - "Adeadenemyalwayssmellsgood"

On top of that, the remaining member of McLusky, mister Jon Chapple, and his band Shooting at Unarmed Men released their 3rd full length entitled Triptych in August. It's only available legally in Australia[?] but should be getting released sometime in the near future. Otherwise, I'd suggest checking out their energetic and excellently titled 2nd LP Yes! Tinnitus! on Too Pure. Apologies for not finding any good clips of them.

*I believe a September 24th release date places it as a Libra, but I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume it's based on a conception sometime between March 21 and April 19**.

**I'm also assuming by the above statement that the album was born prematurely six months into the term.
