The band U239 sends out a MySpace Bulletin titled bombs, etc. and it contains exploding GIFs of bombs. With this addendum:
p.s. buy our shit on itunes. we’re tired of Ramen and Bubba Cola.
They then send out a second Bulletin titled I’m not making this up…, and it contains this illustration:
u239 describes their music as “Electro / Punk / Ghettotech.” isgro is my steez is the title of one of the cuts you can sample on their MySpace page. As if that wasn’t mindbending enough, their 7-song EP on iTunes is titled STAB||THE||KAT — and I hope that’s the name of the damned cat and not a call to action! (Because, for sure, this cat will fuck you up!)
Hey, guys, you have to wait in my MySpace Music Buying Queue! It’s not long, but it’s still a queue. But everyone else reading this should pop over to the iTunes Store to get it. Support indie bands — help kill the RIAA!
iTunes Store direct link [will open iTunes software]
(By the way, having “u239” and “bombs” in one post on my blog is really gonna endear me to the netsnoops at Homeland Security! Thanks, guys!)
Update with jargon spoiler:
I’ve been informed by the band:
Isgro = a bakery in Philadelphia…Bangin’ cannoli’s.
Steez = style…style with ease…think Gang Starr.
