New show added February 13th, 5AoF news (vids, new material), an anecdote [Jan. 14th, 2010|02:14 pm]
5 Acres of Fear

[Current Location |ratthole]

[Current Music |us the Fear!!]

What: 5 Acres of Fear, Thumper, Trikk Baby, Prognosis Negative

Where: ANU, 43 6th st., San Francisco, CA

When: February 13th, 2010, 8pm.

TIX: $5 at the door, 21 and older.

So this is the first of many planned shows for 5AoF in the coming year, both is San Fran and beyond. This show is right up our alley as it's in our hometown, cheap ($5!), and on the weekend, so you all have no excuse not to come out and get stupid with the other members of the Fearful Faithful. The initial response to this show has been good, and by all accounts, this club is packed on the weekends regardless.

We plan on playing more shows than ever in the new year, and as usual we are working on and recording new material for our sophomore CD. If all plays out properly, we'll be playing selected songs from said CD, some of them possibly for the first time. We have plenty of videos in the can that are waiting on a post edit, and hopefully we'll have some of those up here over the weekend. The only thing holding that back are technical hang ups that I (Mr. SageBrush) hope to have fixed in short order.

As a band we've been practicing new sounds, different approaches, different lyrics, two guitar attacks, different genres all together, and so on. That's one of my favorite things about playing with 5AoF: although at our core we're a grimy dive bar type of rock band, we've been known to just completely divert our style, whether it be surf tunes, metal, punk, synthy ballads, Oi music, ska, whatever, we just do what we want. We'll never be pegged as any particular style. That is good. We all bring different influences to the table.

On a funny side note, I saw somewhere that our old bassist Guy (the "original" bassist) had posted some graphics he made for the band back in the day for t-shirts, etc. on a message board. He explained that the band "didn't last long, but the t-shirts still sell". That's funny because way we see it, we've lasted plenty long without him, if not flourished. What he should have posted was "I was in 5AoF, and all I got was this lousy t-shirt".

So, moral of the story, tell the whole story, not "your version". You're building scale models while we play shows. Thanks for the logo though, dude bro. We can never say that you didn't contribute anything. You definitely did with the graphics.

We've got the bassist we've always been missing in Jack Drake, and he contributes very well, thanks. Addition by subtraction. And don't take it personal buddy, like everyone else who's name we drop, we're just "fuckin' witchya".

So, show up to our show if you bothered to read this rant, and see what we're all about, then draw your own conclusions. We're banking on the fact that if you like live rock n' roll, you won't be disappointed. Also on this bill are the bands Trikk Baby, Prognosis Negative (from LA), and Thumper. We all saw Thumper live at Battle Of The Bands last year, and they're bad ass. It's worh the measly 5 bux, some come out of pocket, have some drinks, and see some live, local, and loud music.

Word up.

More to come.

Midnight Mayhem

Black sky full moon

The howl of death arising

Expect bloodshed soon

the hunter and the hunted

the moon shines on the blade

Partnaz N Cryme

Or the death brigade

Well I wonder why I

have these thoughts of killing

In public it takes over I see flesh

and there’s the feeling

the puncture that a knife leaves

the rushing streams of blood

a stiffed up body slowly

getting dragged in the mud

the Demons of Death

are rising up from below

I ask if I’m through

but they always say no

because a reason is incentive

but I can’t lie

It gives me all my pleasure

Just to watch someone die

I pull the blade up

And then it’s a gash

I really get crazy after I smoke hash

I see body after body

with their heart pulled out

eyes rolled back

and an open mouth

dead babies and such

stuck up on a pole

what was an old man

shoved down in a hole

and his wife right there

with fresh tears in her eyes

I’ll make her watch every death

she’ll be the last one to die

the Demons of Death

are finally pleased

but they’ll be back before too long

I’ll have to make someone bleed


Ah ah

The Duel

The feud began

Within their ranks

Should a state be free

Or slave

The Lecomptons had

Kansas for the south

Gwyn and Terry flew

The stars and bars

Men like Broderick

Fought for what was right

He struck at Gwyn

Calling him corrupt

Terry defended his close ally

At a convention

He lashed out

Near the banks of old Lake Merced

The sun was rising

Soon he’d fall

After the flip

It was Terry’s choice

Belgian Pistols with hair triggers

They faced off and then got the word

Broderick’s shot bore into the dirt

Terry drew down dealing a fatal blow

After 3 days

Broderick would die.

At breakfast Broderick read the words

The former fireman burned with rage

Terry said he brought the Democrats shame

He mocked Broderick’s political views

Calling Terry a damn miserable wretch

The hatred festered, the challenge was near

Several sharp exchanges set the stage

and Terry threw the gauntlet down

Near the bank of old Lake Merced

The sun was rising and soon he’d fall

After the flip it was Terry’s choice

Belgian pistols with hair triggers

they faced off and then got the word

Broderick’s shot bore into the dirt

Terry drew down dealing a fatal blow

After 3 days Broderick would die

The Duel

what the FUNK is up with the 5? [Dec. 12th, 2009|11:06 am]

We are on hiatus.

We have been.

This hiatus is almost over.

Once the 1st of the New Year strikes, it's back into "do stuff mode" for the 4 horsemen of death.

www.5aof.com hasn't been updated in a while. That will change as well.

We thought long and hard about what to say, and what we we have to say is this:

We will be streaming on UStream live practices.

We will be making semi-weekly live video blogs from the Ratthole detailing our exploits.

To summarize, 5AoF will be a lot more interactive in 2010. We have numerous songs in the works, and they are all coming together for studio time, and most should appear on our 2nd CD. We're working on establishing a youtube channel, and new show dates are also on the horizon. If you wanna get really stupid, we're even working on a free 5aof iPhone app.

To those who read this stuff, and care, thanks for listening. We have been inactive, but that was the plan all along. World domination is not easy, but we're breaking it down one country at a time.

5 Acres of Fear is More Anguish for Your Pleasure
