Posthumous Accolades and New Old Shirts


(....and dime-sized nipples. Willem, I think it's a tie.) 

So, Cursed.

We (were) Number One! We (were) Number One!


This week we won some official music industry reward for Cursed III as loud/metal album of the year. Thank you, Hamilton and RIP Frankie Venom (Teenage Head)! It should have been Mickey De Sadist. There, I said it. 

We (were) Number Two! We (were) Number Two!

...on Exclaim's Aggressive Tendencies' Top 10 LPs of 2008. Thank you Canada! 

As you may have noticed, we are dead. But thank you all, and to Sean Palmerston for accepting the award in our absence. Also, I found some old shirt designs I didn't want to see go to waste. One of them is an LFD one intended for the '04 reunion show (the DVD of which apparently is very near completion for a spring '09 release on Deranged) and the other, a Cursed design, was used on an older European tour but the print job was botched. So you can now get either of the below designs, awesome and not botched, from our brahs at Shirtkiller:
Also, Deathwish currently has these designs: 

...& give the Doomriders - Disfear split some love while you're there. Oh yeah - and we'll know in the next week or two what the plan is for the ltd picture disc version of III and a possible gatefold 180gram reissue of II. Woot! See? Death ain't shit

Oh fucking awesome, I really wan't the II finally! Your t-shirt designs are probably the best I've seen for years.

I need II on vinyl, also. Its the only thing I dont have. Do you have anymore of those big buttons with the gray goat on them? I lost mine.

Great now the whole world knows i have dime-sized nipples. Let's start a crew! Shirts are ordered and they look great. INSULT shirts are in the process of making and will be shipped to you soon. I have to keep my eyes open for the picture lp and the reissue. Any news on the Cursed live 7"??

P.s if anybody still wants a screenprint of the CURSED III record, please drop me a line at juan_perez187@hotmail.com

Willem - it's alright, man. They're slightly bigger, more like pesos. You got me beat -hah. The 7" should be out by spring if all goes quickly. Waiting on the word from GFR on the other LP reissues.

Anon - I have a few of those. Send me your email in a comment or just your address and i'll make it happen.

Is this still possible? I'm another former owner and would love to jump on this bandwagon.

Thanks,

Oh, I'd be stoked on one of those buttons. P-p-p-please? I'd probably even paypal for one, well, because they're just that great.

Cursed II reissue huh? That is really fuckin great! I was not wanting to go drop a bill on ebay for that.....but I was going to nonetheless, maybe i'll just wait. The live 7" sounds cool, any more detail on that?? Well good, after the demise of the greatest band.....a few remaining gems to look forward to.
Is there a way to get a back order copy of the Exclaim issue you guys were featured on out in California? I think having that and one of the peso sized buttons you speak of would be just what I need right now. My little Deathwish he-goat button got worn and weathered and turned a greenish/yellow. Damn, and they aren't selling them anymore.
...just want to say that Magic Fingers is genious, the way the lyrics/vocals go over the mood shifts is crazy, still gives me chills everytime I listen. That one and Blackout at Sunrise will always be my favorites. Hopefully one last 7" will surface. I need some serious closure from the abrupt ending. Still so bummed out. I could have gone for 10 more years of Cursed releases. I'm almost 29 and there's not much else out there that really get's under my skin and strikes a nerve the way Cursed does.

"You'd do some things before you go in." It doesn't matter. If it hasn't happened by now then fuck it.
This is why I will never respect them::They held me back. "It's not our fault." Since they claim someone gave me biotechnology they accept no culpability and people's loss is forever.
Why even bother? You just wanted to fuck me up? Or does this qualify as washing your hands in your mind?
You sick motherfuckers are monsters. Fuck you.
I embrace my penticle and wish ill upon the gods.
