Anyone else out there running into this stuff from MediaFire? One of my readers brought this to my attention and then I started running across it on other sites. Here we go again. It would be one thing if they were actually showing concern for the artists, but instead they are just trying to rope you into giving money to Amazon or iTunes. Nevah! You think White Flag is getting money from Amazon for their out of print CD? And they don’t offer the LP for download, either. If you run into this crap on my site, leave a note in the comments and I’ll try to fix it.

All the old posts have now been switched over to MediaFire and the site is, once again, fully functional. Let’s see how long this lasts, shall we? I have to admit my confidence in MediaFire could be a little higher, but I’ll give them a chance. And am I the only one who has trouble with their multi-uploader? It rarely works and you have to upload one file at a time, hovering over the site until it goes through. To compound the problem, the nearest high speed internet connection I have is a gas station on the edge of the nearest town with minimal heat and stinks of fried pork tenderloin and potato wedges. So here I am, stinking of pork tenderloins and potato wedges, and what the hell have you clowns done for me? Nuthin’!
Oh, and I did some long-overdue site maintenance while I was waiting and stinking. Basically, I added some new categories to aid in site navigation. Now, you can get all the Mentors and El Duce posts at the click of a mouse and I did the same with a couple other bands and genres. I have also received a couple requests in the past to put together a list of some of the top retard and fake Punk releases. Well, I’m not sure if I can really comply with such a request but, as far as this site goes, I added the categories of Poopy Punk and Poopy Rock that, while containing some legitimate releases, tends to gravitate more towards the bands and artists who went the extra mile in general dumbassitude and crapola. Not that most of this stuff isn’t stupid, mind you! I have some new posts in the works and should have them up by then end of the week.
I am happy to announce that after a 15 year hiatus, Mr. Aufricht has chosen to bless us with a new tape. And the Poopy verdict? It’s the best thing he’s done since “Mockery And Perversion”! Well, since Joe gave me permission to share the recording, I will happily do so, but if you are a fan, you should send the guy some bread or drop him a line:

If this Blog accomplishes nothing else, it will be that the world will finally get to hear all the Joe Aufricht tapes. Not that the world is dying to hear it mind you, and you may wish you were dead after about ten minutes of this shit! Parts of the “Perversion” side of this tape have been kicking around the web for a while, but now you clowns get to hear the whole thing. Honestly, I couldn’t guess at the number of times I’ve listened to Side One of this tape—I’d definitely say a lot—possibly nearing the triple digits. I kid you not. But I’m not alone in my love of this tape and Mr. Aufricht should take a bow for amusing us far more than we deserve.
I’ll confess I’m a little clumsy at explaining this thing, but what Joe says in the first couple sentences of Side One pretty much sums it up, whether you realize it or not. The uninitiated may listen to this and think they are listening to some guy trying to be weird / offensive / sophomoric and while, indeed, it does sound like that, I can assure you that you are dead wrong to think so. Understand that and clear your mind of all illusions to the contrary. Joe is not joking around on this thing—he is totally serious. Once you have fully grasped that fact, it starts to take on entirely new dimensions and the real fun begins. This thing really smacks you in the back brain and, if it doesn’t, then you are not being honest with yourself or, perhaps, you’re a woman. Realize that this only makes sense to Joe and that it is only meaningful to Joe and that he could care less if it means anything to anybody else but him. If you can’t get through this tape, the other ones below will be even tougher.
Joe also plays guitar in a Black Metal band called Satanicon, despite the fact that he has to be almost fifty years old by now and, no doubt, the mentally fit, rational members of that community are doing wonders for the guy! Hail Satanic Youthfulness!

Here is another of the four Joe Aufricht tapes I own. I believe this was his first one–not like it matters. Did you ever play with a tape recorder when you were a kid, making your own little radio shows, perhaps? Well, I did. It was tons of fun, too. Apparently, Mr. Aufricht enjoyed it, as well. In fact, he like it so much, he figured he’d keep right on doing it up into his early 30’s. In this thing, he is traveling back in time and recreating a period in his life when he was 13-years-old and fell in love with a 9-year-old girl a couple of grades below him. Was there a “target audience” for this stuff, Joe?
In this one, Joe is back to the year of 1994 and is no longer 13-years-old. However, he still hasn’t gotten over the 9-year-old he had the hots for, although I gather this story takes place when they are a little older. This is as close as he gets to a straightforward narrative, but it still isn’t easy to get through from start to finish. If one thing stands out immediately, it’s that Joe just doesn’t know when to quit. Seriously. And how does he remember all this shit in such vivid detail? The guy is recalling events that happened 20 years ago, as a child, no less, like it was a couple of days ago, complete with dialogue! I think most people are pretty happy to forget those awkward early teen years, but Joe is completely hung up on them and is determined to re-live them, only getting it right the second time around! This is a tale of insanity and desperate young love, told through the lips of a maniac.
If you managed to get this far, this interview will serve to explain a bit of it at least. Recorded live on WCSB in Cleveland, Joe discusses his church, Satanism, and answers questions from callers.
