This summer I’ve been reading Micheal Azerrad’s Our Band Could Be Your Life,which profiles bands at the forefront of the indie movement of the 80’s. In the spirit of DIY and in a grand punk tradition of fan zines, I’ve created this blog to serve as an outlet for my love of the band Titus Andronicus.
I found Titus towards the end of 2010 on a road trip from Cleveland to Toronto. The band’s music remained a source of comfort and inspiration throughout my high school years. Hopefully, this blog will be a way to spread that which Titus was provided to me.

Joset of Nazareth's Blues by Titus Andronicus
The Innocents Abroad (Live in London 23/02/09) (12″)is an essential listen. The sold out vinyl captures the band at a young and hungry moment. The band’s good ‘ol blogspot features some brief musings on the European tour.

Band: Liam Betson
Band location: New Jersey, USA?
Why we like it: Liam Betson was formerly in Titus Andronicus and previously recorded under the moniker Liam The Younger. “The Cover Of Hunter” is his first release under his own name and his first with up and coming label Double Double Whammy (LVL UP, Frankie Cosmos, Crying). It features appearances from members of Big Troubles, Titus Andronicus and Julian Lynch.
From start to finish, this is a great record. The Cover of Hunter starts off with the eight minute “I Can’t Tell If You’re Looking At Me”. Betson’s imagery and delivery as well as Lynch’s clarinet shine in this song. At times it sounds like Bright Eyes and at times it sounds like LVL UP. For his first studio recorded album, Betson and company did a fantastic job. There isn’t one skippable song on here.
Speaking of LVL UP, they’re going on tour with Liam Betson this summer.
