Tomorrow, July 30th marks the release of SNOT's "Alive." This live album
captures SNOT doing what they did best...ROCK A CROWD!!! Check out what both
Beno and Taproot's Steve Richards had to say about SNOT and their live show...

"What can I say, not enough. Words can't describe the charisma that SNOT
brought when the played live! James Lynn Strait...fu**ing STAR on and off the
stage. The guy was just so tangible. In his eyes-he was just like eveyone
else, and willing to share and touch everyone else with his love and friendship.
Thats the beauty, he didn't think he was better than anyone else, when really he
WAS. SNOT and SYSTEM came up together, so I saw first hand how the bands' had
eachothers backs like brothers-through the good times and the bad. Wow, I can
just remember the MAGIC that took place inside small venues like the Whisky or
Roxy when SYSTEM and SNOT played a show together. It was ALL ABOUT playing for
the love of it and giving the KIDS 100% of their heart! Plain and simple: SNOT
brought the fu**ing house down. They were amazing and James Lynn Strait will
leave a legacy of love and magic....... SNOT were and always will be my
boys-each and every one of them!" - BENO

"I was lucky enough to see SNOT once in Chicago years ago...they stole the show
from both (hed)p.e. and Soulfly and gained a fan forever!" - STEVE RICHARDS of

StreetWise 2002
"Bringing You The Sickest New Shit First"

Hey folks -
Come cheer FIXER to victory at the Battle of the Bands finals this
Wednesday at Downtime. If FIXER triumphs, our booty will include an
all-expense-paid video, and I've come up with something slick in the horror
genre: Evan and his date (the Reverend in Britney-style school-girl garb,
with requisite thong peeking out) leave a movie theater on a gloomy night
when suddenly they're waylaid by dozens of terrifying dancing ghouls. Tim
screams coquettishly, Evan becomes a prancing zombie, Vincent Price waxes
evil, and mirth and mayhem ensue. We'll need lots of extras for this (we'll
need help digging up Vincent, too), so those who come out Wednesday can sign
up to dance, to desecrate, or whatever. See you then.

Wednesday, July 31st
@ Downtime
251 West 30th Street
between 7th and 8th Avenues


Evan R. Saffer - Vocals
Wilson - Guitar, Vocals
Dreamy J Brown - Bass, Vocals
Reverend Diamond Tim Newton - Atomic drums

Backstreet Will Be Back
It’s time for our semi-annual ‘the Backstreet Boys are not breaking up’ announcement. This time the speculation has arisen due to the upcoming release of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter’s solo album 'Now Or Never,' out Oct. 22. The album will be the first full-scale solo breakout from a Backstreet Boy and it’s got fans in a tizzy. That might have to do with Carter’s remarks to Popcorn magazine earlier this month where he claimed bandmember Brian Littrell accused him of destroying the band by branching out on his own. But Nick has written a column in J14 magazine setting the record straight: "Right now some people are worried that the Backstreet Boys are over, but it’s not true." Nick Carter revealed info on his new sound in J14 Magazine: "I can’t stray too far away from what I’ve done with the Backstreet Boys, so I’ve stuck with that and also added a new element; rock music."
ROCK MUSIC? *cough*

New U2 4 U
Irish rockers U2 are moving quickly on new material. So soon after the song, 'The Hands That Built America,' was recorded for the new Martin Scorcese film, reports are now spreading claiming U2 will have a new single out in September called 'Electric Storm.' According to the U2 fansite, U2achtung.com, both new singles will be featured on the upcoming 'Best Of' album set to hit stores in the fall. Other reports claiming U2 would be holding a huge Times Square concert in New York City have now been denied by the band. The concert was allegedly to be held on September 5 to kick off the NFL season. In other U2 news, singer Bono recently spoke out about U.S. President George W. Bush’s power, saying, "he is held hostage in a lot of ways to his own Cabinet, and then Congress."

Bad Week For Britney
What a week it’s been for Britney Spears. First after being chased by Mexican paparazzi, Britney is caught on camera giving the finger and in turn has to apologize to the whole nation for the action. Then her father Jamie Spears admits to pulling a gun on a group of Britney fans who showed up at the family’s Louisiana home hoping to catch a glimpse of their idol. Now, Mexican papers are reporting their outrage once again. Apparently Britney Spears walked off the stage of her final show in Mexico City only five songs into her set. Spears issued an apology saying she had no choice but to cancel the show because of a storm. Something’s brewing, that’s for sure. Spears' label issued a statement saying she started her performance during a break between two rainstorms, but there was too much risk to continue with the second storm coming through.
a washed up, full of sh*t, pop star...

Edgefest II No Go In T.O.
Here’s some sad news for Toronto music fans. The Monday, September 2nd date for Edgefest II at Toronto’s Molson Amphitheatre has been cancelled due to scheduling difficulties. All tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. The show was to feature Jimmy Eat World, Gob, The Constantines, Hot Hot Heat and more.

Fallon Bowman Returns
Fans of Fallon Bowman have been missing her since she left Kittie last year for unspecified reasons. Now East Coast Canadians will get a chance to catch the London Ontario rocker on stage with Tuuli this August according to chartattack.com. Fallon is subbing in for Tuuli guitarist Dawn Mandarino who is nursing a broken finger. After the tour, the x-Kittie star will begin recording her solo album under the name Amphibious Assault. Fallon recently described the project to MetalUK.com saying, "I think it will be dark. It has a very sinister feel to it. I’ll have to listen to the whole thing when it’s all done and decide though."
Could be cool? I guess we will find out.

The End.
