Visited Indianapolis this weekend during the Cultural Trail Grand Opening and spotted this great
2010 2011 installation from artist Jamie Pawlus called Care/Don’t Care.
Ever see a box set so amazing, and for a band you might have never heard of, that you need to know how it happened?
That’s the case with Born Without A Face – the complete sound recordings box set: 1984-1986.
To call this set obsessive and complete is kind of an understatement because big labels don’t treat major bands this well.
The set features an artfully handmade box with a magnetic clasp. The band’s name is silk screened across the front. Inside there are three posters, a sticker, 1-12” 33 1/3rpm record featuring the “Freakshow” album, 1-12” 45rpm featuring “The Unbecoming” & “Worship” eps and a CD collecting all the tracks from the vinyl. The inside of a box includes another art piece, some notes and is part of a hand numbered edition of 300.
From a re-issue standard, the vinyl is beyond 180 gram (so called “audiophile editions”). These records are 210 gram. They are thick like dinner plates or, probably more accurately, 78rpms which the label design seems to invoke.
I think I remember the Red Hot Chili Peppers wearing Sack Socks at one of their shows.

Kind of a late post but, everyone in Detroit should be at Small’s in Hamtramck in tribute to Jason Lockwood.
Jason was a great guy that was always ready to have a whiskey shot with, hang out at shows and even helped put out an Amino Acids vinyl release for us on Hellcity Records. I’m not going to pretend I knew him as well as others have, but I can tell you it was cool when we did hang out. I wish I could be at the show, but even worse is, it sucks that we lost him in the first place.
Thursday, December 27th – A tribute to Jason Lockwood…
A night of live music to celebrate what Jason meant to all of us, with The Jollys, The Amino Acids, Mean Mother, Bailout and Dick Hickey on the stage plus DJ’s Trent Whiskey & Abner Wigglestaff throughout

The Walden Lofts in Italian Village were sold today at a public auction to Alex Dorsey for $4,350,000. Also up at auction was the vacant lot just south of the Walden Lofts that sold for $230,000.
All I have to say is this building is cursed and wish our new landlord good luck. I’m sure his voicemail will be full soon due to all the leaking ceilings and windows.
Always with a cap on, I’ve had the chance to hang out with this “bespeckled, smart looking guy”, as Doc Waffles called him, over the past year & have had the honor to soak up much of his saucy sounds.
Most days Eddie Logix can be found in the Eastern Market penthouse twisting the knobs, creating beats & producing albums for a laundry list of some of Detroit’s finest gents creating hip-hop today. But unlike a lot of producers, who seem more comfortable with their faces buried in a laptop, Logix has a strong stage presence as well as part of Progress Report with D. Allie, MidCoast Most and as hype man to Doc Waffles.
At the low, low price of $0.00, give it a listen. Then pick up the albums by all the cats involved because it only makes logical sense that a man named Eddie Logix would be presenting the leading edge of the Detroit sound!
