Ruin-Songs of Reverie and Ruin

What hardcore bands cover Leonard Cohen, Jefferson Airplane, and the Rolling Stones? Aside from this Philly based Buddhist conglomerate I can't think of another. I never saw their live shows but apparently they were quite a spectacle clothed in white gowns on a stage strewn with candles. Not your typical punks for sure. This cd combines their two releases, He-Ho and Fiat Lux as well as some comp appearances. Even Superchunk covered them. I even think a few of these guys are professors now. Why aren't their people like this in my department. I have colleagues that want to talk about Derrida and Lacan and their children and other boring shit.



  1. here's an article about them, focusing on the Buddhism aspect.
