Yellow Veil Remasters Calvaire!!!


Having meant to listen since it dropped last week (is that right?), I woke up at our Air BnB in Dayton, Ohio and walked over to get coffee at Ghost Light with the new Daptone Records band Thee Sacred Souls. So this song was not only my first impression of the album, but the day and the city of Dayton, five and a half years since the last time I visited. It was perfect. You can order the elf-titled album HERE


In honor of the fact that Yellow Veil just announced an HD remaster BR of one of the lost French Extreme flicks:


I really enjoyed this flick, and can't wait to revisit it. Must be going on 17 or 18 years since I saw it last, back when I ordered the disc through the mail via Netflix's old business model. Director Fabrice du Welz's other film from that early 00s period, Vinyan, has long been a favorite of mine, and although both Vinyan and Calvaire are lumped in with the New French Extreme, I feel that's a bit of a misnomer, as neither even begin to approach the extremity present in other films of that 'genre.'

Rough five-hour drive from Clarksville to Dayton. I mean, the drive last weekend to Chicago was longer but 100% enjoyable. Last night, we left at 4:00 PM  and didn't arrive until 12:00 AM. Lots of down-to-one-lane construction on I-75 and terrible roads to boot (not as bad as AZ or NW, but still). Here's the playlist that got me through my oft white knuckling:

Idles - Joy As An Act of Rebellion
Revolting Cocks - Linger Ficken' Good
Ministry - Psalm 69
Miss Piss - Eponymous
Zeal & Ardor - Stranger Fruit
Allegaeon - Apoptosis
