I've been a big fan of San Diego's Amenity since first hearing them back in the late 80's. I've also known Amenity's front man, Mike Down, since the early 90's and he's always been a stand up guy with a deep and sincere passion for music. When I heard Amenity were getting back together and playing the San Diego Radio Silence book release party, I was trying to figure out a way to be there for it. Unfortunately I couldn't make it happen for the San Diego show, but when word got out that they were going to be playing the No For An Answer reunion, I knew I couldn't miss that. In the end Amenity did not play the No For An Answer reunion, but considering they're back together again, hopefully I'll get that chance to see them sooner or later.
In the meantime, here's a new song and a brand new video from Amenity. I for one thought it was pretty damn cool and have to thank Anthony Popalardo over at Radio Silence for bringing this to my attention. Hopefully I can help bring it to the attention of a few more. Shine... -Tim DCXX
