Captain Ahab, an amazing ravesploitation (embedded wav) band from LA, has just won the Snakes on a Plane song contest. They also have some brutal music videos (Youtube, NSFW) and songs on their myspace ('Girls Gone Wild' highly recommended). [mi]

Also: "Can't wait for summer" MP3 courtesy of the excellent and insane Deathbomb Arc Records.

And finally: Captain Ahab also did the (minimal) soundtrack to La Petite Morte (40 min Streaming video, NSFW), a short documentary about the French porn industry.

Your favorite band sucks.

"Ravesploitation"!? That's like, uh, 10 years too late. 15? 20?

Why do I have the feeling I know these guys?

Because every town has a group like this, loquacious. And they're usually pretty funny in small doses.

ph00dz: nah, it's more than that. Even though I don't live in LA anymore they look real familiar.

The bearded fellow used to do a solo noise act, so perhaps you saw him back then. They also toured recently.

carsonb: Yeah, that's them. They used to have more mp3's on the website, but sadly no longer.

Oh, and there is an "internet radio" show by Brian Miller (who runs Deathbomb Arc) and Johnathan (bearded captain ahab singer/producer) here.

And he piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the rage and hate felt by his whole race. If his chest had been a cannon he would have shot his heart upon it.

What is ravesploitation? Are we talking Prodigy (death of rave), or Scooter (taking the piss)?

"Girls Gone Wild" makes boys get sweaty, rip off their shirts and hump each other at dark basement shows.

The fact that so many sites now are trying emulate myspace is kinda sad...

"embedded wav" is not accurate description for the link. "Embedded punishment" begins to describe it, but just barely.

Heh. I Can't Believe It's Not Booty will fit right in my MP3 collection next to Avenue D's Do I Look Like A Slut? and Shut Up and Stick It In!.

That video is like GWAR! meets DJ Princess Superstar, but with more blood and sperm.

This one is better.

I saw "U Want Me" a few months ago. I think it's one of my favorite all-time bad videos.

Wonder what Herman Melville would have to say about all this?

Does anyone else think that both the winner and the runner up are seriously crappy?

If you think it sucks, you're taking it too seriously. Watch the videos.
