R. I. P. The ELEMENTARY REVOLT




Well, this sure ruined my fucking day. For reasons unknown (to me), the legendary Elementary Revolt has closed it's doors for good. All posts have been deleted. I'm blown away. The site had an amazing run, starting way back in 2006, and was definitely the inspiration for this blog you are reading now. I can't even begin to tell you how many cool bands I have stumbled across there. Everyone that contributed there was super cool and I am truly sad to see it go. Chris, a regular writer there, has his own blog going called Manic Compression, so at least we have that refuge to turn to. 

And, as death usually does to people, I have a renewed spirit to try to make this blog 1/100th as cool as The ER was. I will try my best to post more, and I believe Krustie from the ER will start posting here as well. I can't tell you how excited I am to have him on board, even though it is bittersweet. 

So, before you curl up in a fetal position, stop by The Elementary Revolt one last time and pay your respects.

Thanks dude. Yeah. We were getting burned out. Plus all the DMCA bullshit was one of the first nails in the coffin. Makes me feel great to know we inspired you to do Dead Air.
