Free 7" from Room 101
Local/Chicago one-man noisenik Room 101 isn't letting a silly thing like the economic crisis stop him from releasing music - he's just decided to give it away. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org and he'll send you a copy of his brand-new four-song 7", complete with artwork by Winston Smith, who doctored up some Dead Kennedys covers real nice back in the day.
Mr. 101 was kind enough to send Rocks Off MP3s of two songs from the EP, squawking blues "In Uniform" and narcotic daydream "The Blackwater Surprise." (Think maybe there's a political message in there somewhere?) The songs are also available as free downloads on his MySpace page.
