I think it’s been nearly 15 years since Dos released their last record, so when Mike Watt mentioned he got together with Kira Roessler (the other half of the dueling thunderspiel delight) to release a spanking-new Dos album, I was ma-effing ecstatic. I don’t [shouldn’t] need to explain who Mike Watt or Kira Roessler are, just take a gander at their résumé of founding and foreman positions in quintessential bands like Minutemen, fIREHOSE, Black Flag, The Stooges, etc. Just like the celebrity-endorsed salad dressings and condiments in the supermarket, you better believe that if Mr. Watt puts his name on something, it’s worth putting on the platter. This album, along with some of Mike’s solo stuff, is available through Clenched Wrench Records. Easy Dos it.

King Foam

A while ago I posted about the Gamechangers footbeds (DIY orthotics) from Footprint Insole Technology. Since then, they sent me a pair of their new King Foam high impact absorbing insoles made specifically for low-profile and vulcanized skate shoes. You can check the video above for the science behind the things they call kings. I actually put mine in my running shoes… which I haven’t used for several weeks now. Anyways, nice up your sneakers with some of these, your heels will thank you.
