I was a busy busy dude, especially during the last six months, job/career change, moving, and blah blah blah. Well, 2011 is finally here, I know I haven't posted anything in a while, but thankfully everyone else has been posting up some great albums. We've received a lot of reader submitted albums that I finally took the time to go through and check out. So in the next few days I'll be posting them up along with some local New Orleans live videos that I've been filming at shows all year. I just wanted to say thanks to all the readers and to my fellow team members here for keeping this blog going. I know I've said it a few times, but damn. Working 7 days a week sucks.I'll be sure to start devoting more time to this place. I'm planning on giving this place a face-lift too, so if anyone wants to maybe make some banners or other cool stuff like that, send 'em in. Also, for anyone who doesn't know, I've been doing an online radio show for Core of Destruction every Sunday night at 9 p.m. Central time called "Yeayourite Radio". I play all types of stuff, mostly sludge/doom, a lot of New Orleans stuff, as well as Outlaw Country, Black Metal, and whatever else I've been listening to at the time. Be sure to check Core of Destruction out, and get in the chat room. They've got 2-3 shows every weeknight, as well as music streaming 24/7. Anyways, keep checking back, as I said, I'll be giving this place a face lift, so if anyone has any ideas or wants to help, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Submissions will be up in a few days, as well as some videos and stuff. Thanks again to the Krewe and all of our readers!
I originally started this blog with the intent to create an archive of New Orleans/Louisiana based bands demo's, EP's, full lengths and live recordings. My primary focus was to feature a little bit of everything going on in this great city. There are many bands past and present that have never gotten the recognition that they (in my opinion) truly deserved.
So I figured why not start converting all these demo tapes and etc. and share them with the world? But as I kicked the idea around on a few message boards and with friends, I decided to not just limit the page to Louisiana.
So here you will find artists from all across the globe, some may be well known, others may not. Here at Nola 504 and More, the Krewe and myself all have very unique musical tastes, which I think helps our page really stand out.
Yes, we may feature a lot of metal, but we also have punk, country, jazz, rockabilly, etc. Musical "gumbo" so to speak; meaning a little bit of everything. So, if you are/were in a band from Louisiana, or anywhere else in the world, and care to share it with the rest of the world, drop one of us an email. We'd love to check it out!
