Want more music fun? have a listen to this crap.
Year of the Rat/Year of the Ox
Stardate 192.420.6.9, our intransigent space pirates continue their seemingly endless and undeterrable mission to keep releasing new music, despite the near universal acclaim they received for their debut album, Untitled 3. The latest output from these drugged up burnouts, Year of the Rat | Year of the Ox, finds them grappling with fresh and timely lyrical themes such as religion, sex, and politics. Never content to sit in one place, stylistically speaking, they even pioneer a new genre wherein the most unappealing aspects of rap and heavy metal are forced to share space in an mp3 (or whatever pristine listening medium is in vogue at the time of this writing). Tune in next time, as our heroes face the crushing reality of being in their 40’s while still living with roommates, or spacemates, or whatever.
Year of the Dog/Year of the Hog
Year of the Dog/Year of the Hog, out now on Eat My Records, finds the infamous Taken Outside And Shot Twice continuing their unapologetic molestation of Metal, Punk, Country, and Comedy Rock. We join the boys as they travel through outer space in search of the dankest moon-weed in “Spank Dawg in Space”. We get on our knees and lend a rubbing hand as they quest for fame via payola in “Radio Ready”. We even see the boys get a little heavy, as they leave the comfort of their parent's house and face the crushing everyday drudgery in "F.E.W.S.". Sure to delight young and old, Year of the Dog/Year of the Hog will forever be revered in the annals of ass kicking, give-no-fucks rock-n-roll.
Year of the Cock
Year of the Cock reveals junior varsity heroes Taken Outside And Shot Twice pumping their 2nd release onto the soft cheeks of Eat My Records. Positioning themselves for another five minutes of aural penetration, TOAST lubes up the listener's earholes with it's latest collection of statutory indiscretions. Leading off with mom's favorite aphrodisiac, menthols and taxidermy, and rounding out the night with hefty shots of whiskey from grampa's colostomy bag, Year of the Cock ensures no one's sobriety or decency will be spared.
Year of the Monkey
Having found a new home on Portland indie label Eat My Records, seminary school dropouts Taken Outside And Shot Twice throw down the EP that kicks off their zodiacal album series: Year of the Monkey. Featuring fanatical rants about population control, animal-human mind-melds, and bewildering tales of formaldehyde swilling pizza chefs, Year of the Monkey is sure to grab your nana's junk and give it a twist.
Year of the Ram
Join TOAST as they shoehorn this demo into their album litany—so they can break up sooner! Unfazed by the presumed criticism from making such an unsavory move, TOAST utilizes its collective super power of internalizing any feelings of inadequacy by crushing it into a tight little ball of hate, and spewing it upon these 5 minute “albums”, which simultaneously serve as their collective obituaries. Cheers!
