Let’s get some happy on here

OK, a couple of posts to (hopefully) raise a smile – just as the avalance warning AWOOGAHs outside nigh on the stroke of midnight.

First off, a massive dose of “aaaaaaw, cute!” with this link to a live video feed of some puppies in a basket. I defy you not to keep it open in a spare tab and keep flicking back to it during the day. Awesome.

Secondly, you have to check out Ten Masked Men. A bunch of lunatics in masks who have so far released four cover albums of popular beat combo covers done in a death metal stylee. Best of all, they’re English which automatically makes them better even than Deicide. If slightly less mad than Glen Benton.

Any band which can describe themselves as follows on their myspace page has to have a sense of humour. I’ll leave you with that and a top notch video.

A crack death metal unit was sent to the underground by a musical court for a crime they probably did commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security recording studio to the London Underground (fuckin tubes!). Today, still wanted by the musical government, they survive as soldiers of metal tributes. If you know a crap song, and no-one else has covered it, and you can find them, maybe you can hire, Ten Masked Men.

I have been watching these puppies on and off for fucking *hours* now. Makes a change from the usual puppies I look for in the internet…

Having spent the last 3 mins listening to Ten Masked Men, there’s very little resembalance between the original music and the thrashing wailing of guitars and drums.

But I bet they’d be fab live or at Rio’s…

Oh, agreed. Impressed that they supported Ash a while ago – and had one of their songs on the B-side of a limited edition Ash 7″. I think the bonus track on their last album is a cover of an Ash track as a “thank you”.

Puppy cam is offline at present. I miss them, already :(
