Underneathica, Please Try Harder

My kids started back to school yesterday, so I will be able to post more frequently again. On Sunday the 13th, there was another great match between Atlanta Rollergirls teams the Sake Tuyas and the Toxic Shocks. The Sake Tuyas are already in this year's championship bout (to be held on September ), and they won this match handily (105-80). The Toxic Shocks put up a good fight: two of their skaters, Queen Loseyateefa and SK8 Outta Compton, won their penalty challenges. But the Sake Tuyas (led last night by Belle of the Brawl, Raging C*ck, Big Red, and 18-Hour Broad) were unstoppable.

There's still a chance to try out for next season, if you want to be a Rollergirl! They will be recruiting tomorrow night (August 16). Check the website for details. Don't forget that on Sunday, September 10, the Sake Tuyas will face the Apocalypstix in the 2006 Championship Bout! The Rollergirls will also make an appearance at the Drive-Invasion on Labor Day weekend. And on Saturday, September 23, the Rollergirl Hootenanny will be held at the Masquerade (bands TBA).

Today I'm in a pub rock mood. Dr. Feelgood's first album, Down by the Jetty, has recently been reissued on CD. This record was an inspiration to the first wave of British punks, and members of Dr. Feelgood financed one of the first independent punk labels, Stiff Records. Today's song is my favorite from another pub rock band, Ducks Deluxe. Sean Tyla's vocal performance is excited to the point of being incomprehensible, and Martin Belmont spits out some classic Chuck Berry riffs.

Wouldn't miss it! I guess there isn't going to be a Rollergirl Hootenanny?
