so here’s a really interesting show review for the radstorm opening show coming from a queer buddhist perspective.
check out what the author says about eekum:

"The opening show is always the most powerful event in the life of these spaces. The crowd at Radstorm was a mix of gendernauts of all sorts, variously lesbian, gay, straight, bi, cis, and what have you. Genders and sexualities varied as often as hair dyes. The one common denominator: they all wore black, every shade of black on every kind of fabric, black mixed with browns and occasional maroons and dark greens, but mostly, obsessively, black.

I had seen Eekum Seekum at the Rad Pride March after-party at Plan B. They played a low-key show in the tiny café at the back of a collective antique store on Gottingen St. I knew things were going to be different tonight. I biked home and got my earplugs. They were going to wail, use their sonic claws to tear through the flesh of patriarchy and neo-liberalism. “Fuck macho bullshit forever” is their band motto. Their last song was my favourite, F.U…N, about raunchy queer fucking, with its own anthem for the audience: “1, 2, 3, 4, put your fingers in my hole”, “any hole” shouts Emily the bass player. A hundred of us all scream off to “four” together, putting up one finger at a time, until we are in collective fisting mode, jabbing our fisting hands toward the great goddess in the sky (at least that’s where my fisting was going).

While Eekum Seekum is playing the loudest and most furious show of their lives, a writhing mass of black bodies is moshing in front of the stage, and I’m getting off on the energy. It makes me think of what DPR said about tantric practice, “Let go of seeing everything as solid; let go of what appears in front of you, and see things as they really are, as permeable space. Watch the play of phenomena.” So I watched the writhing mass of black bodies bounce and vibrate to the pounding punk rhythm of Eekum Seekum. I see bodies, arms, legs, heads, feet, twitching and jerking, melting into each other, into nameless, polymorphous-perverse, chaotic forms, self-immolating in a collective bonfire of hard-core passion.”

Our second release is here!! Yay! It took so long to get it by mail from Greece i almost thought it would never come.. I am so happy about this record, it looks great, sounds great and I love this band. I met Emily (from Eekum Seekum) when I was in New York in the end of May/beginning of July this year. We walked and talked punk and politics, new band projects and found some shelter from heat under a tree in a park by the East River. It was really great to meet and hear some more about the punk scene and queer punks in Halifax and the surroundings and to share a little bit about what is going on in Sweden.

If dreams come true one day we will bring them over to Europe for a tour - in the meantime please enjoy this record and rad band over at our website (Don’t forget to check out their awesome video of “Pink Dollar$”!)

Our anthem against corporate pride! Words and music written by Mary and Elly during Halifax Pride 2011. Footage shot on Super 8 by Emily in the summer of 2012. Still every bit as relevant this year in the midst of the rainbow drenched chaos that is Halifax Pride 2014. So much love and gratitude to the organizers of Halifax Dyke and Trans March for the past five years. xxxox.
