from "The Sound of Young America" podcast says,
My youngest brother Brendan (age 11) is the frontman of the band Total Annihilation.
His stage name is Eddy Demon, and he plays with our family friend Damon (aka Dorkmeister Harmoniak) on bass, his and our friend Pete on drums (recently turned 14), and as of recently, his guitar teacher James on rhythm guitar.
On Saturday, they played at the Maker Faire, a really cool event in San Mateo hosted by Make Magazine. They rocked out amid fire-spouting fire trucks, mobile cupcake cars, power tool races and a two-story-high game of Moustrap. It was fantastic.
I set up some equipment and recorded a few of their songs for your enjoyment:
Coffee Break - MP3 Link
In N Out of Grace - MP3 Link
Jerkbusters - MP3 Link
The second is a Mudhoney cover -- Mudhoney are one of Brendan's faves, along with (at last reckoning) the Minutemen and the Stooges.

White hat hackers get paid to find holes in their own employers’ online systems, and plug those holes before they become serious security risks. It’s a job that pays handsomely…mostly because few job candidates, even experienced IT professionals, have the skills to scamper over firewalls and infiltrate the deepest recesses of a battle-tested network. But […]

You may not love Microsoft Word, but you’ve definitely used it. Other than being one of the most ubiquitous programs on the planet, it’s been the go-to word processing system for more than a quarter-century because it’s as basic as it gets. But occasionally, you’ve got assignments that beg for a lot more options than simple […]
