Taken from Steve at Exit's MySpace:

Listen up... I don't back them, and I know Joe Strummer wouldn't either so we are selling them for cost, (38$) and donating all the money to a local charity for christmas... 12 pm on the dot tomorrow afternoon...We are not holding any so hurry up...

Note to Nike... Dead dude your cashing in on also has a charity maybe that might help...

Big ups to Steve for trying to stay as true as possible to the Indie roots that made the "Underground" what it once was, and Nike is one of the reasons that I say "once was". If this is not a big enough reason to support Exit in the future then I don't know what it.

Stay Gold.

Stoney United, Game 2

On the afternoon of Saturday, December 8th Stoney United faced off against Gary's for its second game in the Newts Indoor League. "The Golden Boys" got off to not so good start, playing down to the disorganized and rowdy Gary's. Gary's played a very unorganized game of kick and run, which led to the first goal for "The Golden Boys". The first goal coming from J.Livewell, a rip off the foot striaght to the upper left corner. The first half was played very sloppy by both sides, Stoney United lucky to be up a goal in the first half. The second half Stoney U. adapted well to Gary's play and controled the ball most of the second half. With about 8 minutes left in the game, JLivewell caught Gary's off guard on a breakaway netting the ball to the left corner. The goal giving Stoney a little breathing room with some time left in the final half. Around the 2 minute mark in the 2nd half, Gary's pulled their goalie. Which led to J.Kirchenbauer picking off a pass and easily putting in the third goal for Stoney U. All in all, Stoney adapted well to the reckless play of Gary's and with the help of solid defensive play, S.Gallagher notched his first shutout of the season. The win brings "The Golden Boys" to 1-0-1 on the season.

Stoney United: JLivewell ('10), J.Livewell (32'), J. Kirchenbauer (39')

Gary's: J.Bolt 22/25 Saves
Stoney United: S.Gallagher 17/17 Saves

Next Game
Preliminary - December 15th @ 1:30 pm

Digs Darklighter's -- "Boomboxcutter"

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Whats more fitting for my first album review on All Philly, All Day. Than the latest release from illatropolis Records, and Frankford's own Digs Darklighter. The album entitled "Boomboxcutter" is a 15 track monster of in your face indie hip hop, in its purest form. No bling boastin', gadt rappin', nonsense. Digs touches on things from all walks of Philly life. From the neighborhood life, to graffitti kings, to malt beverages. At first take, I noticed the album artwork screaming nothing but Philly. The tall hands, gangster scripts, wicked straight letter, and photograph of sneakers on the wire (taken by Digs).

The beats on "Boomboxcutter" smack you in the mouth, right of the bat. Every track is full of ill cuts, classic samples, and some obsecure greatness. Most of the tracks are produced by Stape Mega, who gives you no choice but to remember his production steez. Each and every track on point. The production on "First Element" stands out in the crowd, produced by Caliph-Now."First Element" has to be the illest Illadelph graffitti anthem released. "First Element" is without a doubt one of my favorties, up there with "What We Are All About" , "Big 5" , and "Sick of the City" with production from underground legend RJD2.

When "Boomboxcutter" came to its end, I definetly felt myself wanting more. Never getting bored with one track, each and every track kept my ears peeled and head noddin'. Psyched on Digs representing Philly, the way Philly should be represented. Straight truth. With all said and done, go pick this up at a local independent record shop in the city. You will not be dissapointed. Keep an eye of Digs Darklighter's MySpace for updated on shows and such.

Stay Golden,
