    This is actually amazing, I had no idea! What's with the name though I thought they couldn't use it or have I just been out of the loop for like 10 years?

    Yaaaaaaass! One of my favorite bands dies, and another is reborn! I’m in heaven. Hope it doesn’t suck.

    I have mixed feelings about this. Wes Eisold's support of misogynist neo-fascists like Boyd Rice make me hesitant to continue supporting anything he does.

    hmmm. I knew nothing of this because I don't follow Cold Cave, but this is certainly something I'm going to read into. Thanks

    achin' to be Prestigious

    a few years back Wes brought Boyd Rice along for some Cold Cave shows - here's a little write-up on that controversy, as well some info on Boyd Rice. Wes continually came out in defense of Boyd Rice and even helped produce a recent album of his, Back to Mono. On top of that, he released a collection of Rice's essays and lyrics via his publishing company, Heartworm Press (the book recently went through another printing earlier this year).

    If you wanna dig a little deeper, here's some info on the neo-folk/industrial movement that Boyd Rice is a part of.

    and while on the topic of current punk bands flirting with fascism, it's worth pointing out that Alkaline Trio had Douglas Pearce, of the neo-nazi/neo-folk band Death in June, contribute a spoken word piece on "I Found Away" from their 2008 album, Agony and Irony. sigh.

    crazy. I keep reading Boyd's defenses where he says its all a performance and satire. But at some point if the satire consumes you, doesn't it just become your new normal?
