Hey, thanks for checking out our site! This web page is a collaboration between two great friends, James and Aaron, and collects all their musings, ramblings, reviews and (sometimes) utter nonsense about music. Lots of sites write about music, and many of them do it way better than we do. We encourage you to read those sites as well! But you won’t find this level of heartfelt love (or indifference or hate) for the subject matter just anywhere. Nope, the KMA gives it to you straight.
We’re not paid to do this. It’s just for shits and giggles.
A brief history:
The KMA started on the web in October of 2006, and has lived in several homes. It currently resides on Word Press because, for the time being, WP works. Some of those other sites did not, and around here we just don’t have time or patience for troubleshooting assinine problems with free blog sites.
The name Keeps Me Alive comes from an old Black Flag song called Room 13. Aaron loves Black Flag. A lot. But more than that, music really does keep us alive. It fuels us and excites us. It helps us through those long, bitter winter nights. It is the soundtrack of our lives.
We hope you enjoy your stay. There’s lots to dig through, in these archives. We love comments, so if you see something that you just have to tell us about, please feel free to do so! We will reply! And if you have your own music and you want to see a review of it here so that you can impress all your friends, by all means contact us and we’ll make arrangements for getting your sounds into our ears. We’d love to hear it – whatever it is.
Ever onward towards new sounds, let’s give ‘er!
