Mid-Winter Scene Report

It's still very much winter here in Nebraska and mother nature is letting us all know by dumping more snow on us as right now as I am typing this.  However, I have noticed an increase in show activity in recent weeks regardless of the cold.  I tip my hat to any band who is willing to tour anywhere north of Kansas City in the winter, it's not easy.

For this brief scene report I just wanted to let everyone know that the new Short Fast & Loud Comp 10" will be out soon celebrating 10 years of ear damage to the masses.  The almighty Wasteoid has new (!) and previously unreleased songs on the comp as well as tons of other great hardcore bands that you know and love are also on slab of wax, so be sure to check it out.  Ross from Wasteoid has also contributed guitar skills as well as the back cover album art for the new Cock E.S.P. cd/cs titled Historia de la Musica Cock that is out now for your listening pleasure.

Here in Omaha, the young blasters in Hominoid have recently put up freshly recorded tracks on their Myspace page that are worth checking out.  I haven't heard any official word on a release date for the new material but I'm sure it'll be out before springtime, so keep your ears attuned to ground level. 

Back in Lincoln, Shane aka Violator X has a new metal project featuring Lincoln metal scene veterans called Vickers.  These guys have already been playing shows and expect to hear and see a more experimental/noise/visual experience when these guys play live.  In more capitol city news, Lincoln's hardest working hardcore band: Bent Life isn't showing any signs of slowing down by recently posting up new tour dates for February.  Be sure to check 'em out when they come to a city near you.  The tour dates are as followed:
