« previous post | next post »

Alex Baumans sends a link to a new album Double Negative by the band The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing.

Negative Concord would be a better title, in my opinion.

    Perhaps a reference to the [Jack the Ripper graffito](

    It is hard to be certain from this youtube clip (slideshow of a buncha still photos of vaguely heavy-metal looking folks over guitar-only audio w/o any vocals or percussion) if "Negative Concord" is the name of the recording artist, but that seems >50% likely imho.

    J. W. Brewer: Is that these guys?

    John Hayter: Thanks, I would have missed that.

    Prof. Liberman: Maybe the resolution is that your title is an anticipation of their next album, which we hope won't be subject to much retardation.
