The Perm & The Skullet is a non-profit music blog devoted to bringing you music of all kinds.

Although we prefer that rustic, acoustic, unusual, whiskey soaked sound, we do like music of all styles and genres. If you have something you think we should listen to, by all mean, let us know.

All Links and MP3s are for sampling, evaluation, and introduction purposes only and are intended to provide exposure to said artist / film / site etc... If you like it, please go buy it.

Online, we recommend Insound, emusic or directly from the artist or their label. Locally, we recommend Schoolkids Records or Bull City Records.

Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.

MP3s, Links, and Images can easily be taken down, so if you are the owner or their representation, and would like said link or file removed, just let us know and we'€™ll be happy to do so. You can E-mail me directly here for any questions or concerns or submissions.

Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

New Name for a New Year

With a new day, comes a new year, and on that note...The Perm & The Skullet blog was born. When I first started this blog, I wasn't sure if anyone would even care what I had to say or if anyone would ever visit the site. I've been doing this since May and it has become like an appendage. Hayhurst's Blog was just that a blog for me and my friends, but now that people from around the world have come to check out this blog, I feel that yes it is my blog still, but that it's now bigger than that. I may be wrong and you can have your own opinion, but I felt that a new name was in order. A name for the site and not just my name.

And so, as I mentioned earlier, The Perm & The Skullet is born. You may ask, "why that name?" The name comes from a faux band that my friends and I created after a night at The Flying Saucer here in Raleigh. The night started like any other, but would culminate with the meeting of two middle aged individuals, one male, one female, one perm and one skullet. They chattered amongst themselves, courting and toying with one another. Finding this combination fascinating and bizarre, we could not turn away. Of course to this day we still mention that night and the wonderful name of The Perm and the Skullet. The name is just so great and it can be used for any form of entertainment, not just a band. An adolescent novel, Are You There God, It's Me The Perm & The Skullet, a tv show like Scarecrow & Mrs. King or Hunter, The Perm & The Skullet, Saturday nights on CBS. But yet, the band is where we started and still find the most laughs in. So be on the look out for our first album "Greatest Hits".

I hope everyone has enjoyed this blog as much as I have and I hope to continue to bring you great sites, good music, insightful thought, and films from around the globe. Check back soon and thanks for stopping by.
