No Doves interviews The Mob!

Okay so it's not everyone in The Mob but there's Mark, and the photo's too good not to use.

Here is an interview with The Mob, whose original run was from 1977 until 1983. Obviously our twice-per-month event night is named after the Mob song and EP "No Doves Fly Here." As a longtime Mob fan, I'm very excited to present this interview. The Mob, a power trio (heh) fronted by guitarist and vocalist Mark Mob, have recently been playing together again, and are coming to Austin, Texas, on May 31.

I'll let the late Lance Hahn, also of Austin, TX -- who was a writer as well as the frontman and songwriter of the band J-Church (who did a cover of The Mob's "No Doves Fly Here") -- introduce The Mob for me:

“No Doves Fly Here” is one of the most powerful musical statements to come out of what we’re calling anarcho punk and if you didn’t know any better you would have it all wrong. By traditional standards, it’s barely a punk song at all, dead slow in tempo with repetitive, hypnotic bass lines. In some ways, the music is gothic with roots in songs like “Hollow Hills” by Bauhaus. Lyrically, it’s poetic. [...] The Mob were hippie punks. But there was something dark and ominous about a lot of their music. They were death hippies, tripping on the apocalypse. (SOURCE.)

Mark Mob interviewed by Oliver in late March, 2012.

No Doves Fly Here interviews Alaric!

Oakland, California's Alaric have been long-time friends of No Doves Fly Here. They appeared (with their consent!) on the first No Doves Fly Here CD-R sampler that we gave out for free on November 16, 2011.

Featuring members of Cross-Stitched Eyes, Noothgrush, and Dead and Gone, Alaric have routinely cited deathrock bands like Part 1 and Rudimentary Peni as primary influences, and have recently played shows with Fangs on Fur and others in the deathrock scene. They produce an especially powerful, driving, and gloom-heavy type of postpunk that has been winning over many fans outside of their home on the West Coast. Their 2011 self-titled LP can be bought here.

Interviewed March 26, 2012 by Oliver (Death Church).

Anyway, this is the track listing of the latest No Doves sampler:

Next No Doves Fly Here - March 21, 2012! (and other news)

Come out Wednesday March 21, 2012 to No Doves Fly Here - the next No Doves. DJs Damage Done and Death Church. As always, no cover, 10PM-2AM, dedicated parking, and at Chain Drive! Rather than vomit out a list of 70-80 bands you may (or may not) hypothetically hear by the end of the night, check our previous setlists to see the sort of stuff we play. (This is why we post our setlists - to give folks an idea of where we're coming from, so they can decide if the night is right for them.)

The Facebook event page is here, or click on the flyer image/graphic to go there:

No Doves' old friends at San Antonio's 1313 are at it again this Saturday, March 10, at the Thirsty Camel, as always. Same deal as No Doves, pretty much: No cover, 21+, dedicated parking, deathrock, postpunk, and gothic rock, with DJs Malediction and Detra Munster. 

And just a reminder that No Doves' friends at DIOS MIO have a happy hour EVERY (!) Wednesday and Thursday from about 5PM 'til 9PM! DJ Dru Criatura will often spin the best d-beat, hardcore punk, thrash, metal, postpunk, punk en espanol, etc., while you get your (cheap) drink on. Their Facebook page is here with all the details.
