The PRP Presents: Chocolate Mailout And The Watered Down Content

Greetings earthlings, welcome to October, better known as the cold month. We
know many of you can't wait for the impending bombardment of holiday themed
advertising and neither can we, we just love seeing snowmen, reindeer, Santa and
A Christmas Story 18 times in one day. You'll shoot your eye out indeed. So
anyway, its a cold month, so get cold and sit and read this overdrawn intro that
goes nowhere. More interviews, more features and more contests in the works and
that's about it. Before you go, remember though, Toucan Sam kept it real, the
colonel, the Cap'n, hell even the Kool-Aid Man, they all sold out, but Toucan
still holds it down, reprezent.

PRP Band Of The Month For October:

Mr. Downstairs:
Hailing from Ithaca, NY, Mr. Downstairs came to be in 1997 and after undergoing
a number of personnel changes, the current lineup solidified and unleashed a
blistering self-titled full-length effort in 2000. Building upon the strength of
it, the group have continually played regional shows since, impressing fans far
and wide.....

PRP Featured Release For October:

Amazing Device - "The Demo":
Baldwin, NY based outfit Amazing Device started to make a name for themselves
under the moniker of Further, but unfortunately, due to some legal issues they
were forced to change their name, so it is with this outing that they make the
virgin trek under their newly adopted banner. Having already played countless
regional shows and even appearing on the internationally aired "Farmclub.com" TV
show, Amazing Device have released a string of successful demos under their
previous name....

October Update / P45 In Stores / Zombie Team / POA Virtual Sampler!!!


OCTOBER is here�Halloween, the beginning of the Fall season and a few new
happenings in the world of StreetWise. Check out what�s going on:


Tuesday, October 2nd
PRESSURE 4-5 � �Burning The Process�


Just in time for the Halloween season, Rob Zombie is ready to drop his new
record, �The Sinister Urge.� And who does he hire to get the word out on the
streets�none other than StreetWise! We are DAMN EXCITED to be working Mr.
Zombie�s new record and we�re sure you are to.

Click on the link below to join:


Impur is an all hook, raw energy four piece rock band from Redondo Beach, CA.
The band consists of two vocalists, a hell of a lot of melody and edgy guitar
driven energy in the form of Incubus meets Metallica. Although the members range
from 14-20 years old, the lyrics and energy are introspective, heavy and
brutally honest. The band delivers sincere rock that will satisfy listeners of
all genres of music. Impur is currently in production for their upcoming
release for Warner Bros Records, scheduled for April, 2002.


This hard-edged rock powerhouse epitomizes the perfect mix of inspired
heaviness, cleverly crafted melodies, and seesaw dynamics that whip the listener
around like a sonic roller coaster. Since forming in 1997, the group released
two exceptional indie CDs � �Real� and �Indecision� - and took it upon
themselves to do everything a label would do. For starters, the members of GRYP
serviced their music to press and radio, ultimately lighting up the airwaves on
several college and specialty radio stations across North America and Europe.
Then, when it came to touring, the group didn't complain about fuel prices, or
club bookers seemingly incapable of returning calls. Instead, driven by sheer
excitement over their music, GRYP hit the open highway performing in nearly ever
state and providence in the U.S. and Canada. These dates included several high
profile shows, from the Vans Warped Tour to opening for groups like 311,
Pennywise, P.O.D., Fenix TX, and MxPx.

It�s up to the eyes and ears of the streets�YOU to decide on whether or not we
should �Use It or Lose It.�

Not Boiling... (if you hate or like Durst you will laugh at this one!)

In a recent interview with MTV, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst vowed to drop all of his long-standing grudges, including those with Creed frontman Scott Stapp, Slipknot, Eminem, Trent Reznor of nine inch nails, Christina Aguileria and more. His decision to do so comes as a result of the recent events in America, which have changed his outlook on life. He commented on the matter stating:
"To spend our lives disliking someone or something, or have grudges... our own world is so small? If everyone doesn't come to their senses and realize we've got to let all that go, then they're blind. They're as blind as the people who are killing us. I've had my problems with whoever I've had them with, and whoever had their problem with me or Limp Bizkit. I'm a human being, and I'm prepared to step up to that. All of my differences are gone now. I care about you being alive, and I want you to care about me being alive. Who knows what the world has to bring in the future?"
