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.

“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.”
You can mail any materials to me electronically here or hard copy at:

I promise to listen to everything, but due to the large amount of material I receive, I can not guarantee review. Thanks!

Alot of my friends know that I watch movies all the time and listen to music constantly, but I also read, believe it or not and these are a few of the books on my nightstand right now.
Songbook by Nick Hornsby
Shock Corridor by Michael Avallone
The DiVinci Code by Dan Brown
A Coney Island of the Mind by Lawrence Ferlinghetti
de Kooning by Mark Stevens and Annalyn Swan
Hagakure by Yamamoto Tsunetomo

A Crackup at the Race Riots by Harmony Korine
A Drink With Shane MacGowan by Shane MacGowan and Victoria Mary Clarke
When I read books I start about 2 or 3 at a time and rotate between them. Some of these are re-reads for me, but this is what I go to bed with. Follow the links to buy them at Amazon. They are all worth a read.
