Tact Is My Middle Name, But My Last Name Is Liss

Good afternoon, it’s TheAndySan hurr to tell you guys about 2 rad dudes who are a-freakin-mazing at guitar.

Their names are Housethegrate and Ashane. I first heard about Ashane through a site called OCReMix.org. I downloaded his song NinjaScape. At first, I thought it was too slow so I skipped by it for a long time. Then one day, I decided to listen to the whole thing and was floored. I was hooked. I had to have moAr. I eventually found a video of Ashane performing another song called Red Cap Assault. He put it up on YouTube for grate justice, and here it is:

I don’t remember exactly how I found out about Housethegrate, but chances are, I found him via his brother Ashane. Oh yeah, did I mention that they were brothers? I listened to some of his songs and thought they were ok. I really didn’t start to get into House’s music until I saw his video for La Hora es Tarde:

Then, I had to hunt down moAr videos! Here are some vids of him up on YouTube:

Waltz of the Dolls:

Light In The Fortress:

Guitarmageddon 2002:

Walk On Water:

As I’ve said before, House has released his own CD called Houseworks. I bought it and it’s still the best $10 I ever spent. You too can have House’s CD of Grateness. Go to http://www.housethegrate.com/?id=order and order that shit, suckas!!

Well, I’m gonna chill before I go to work so I’ll be going now. Later!


P.S: It’s been 1,512 days since I had a website.

  1. Cool, Andy, thanks for pimping the talents of house and Ashane. They’re two really major contributors to Dwelling of Duels, and I definitely appreciate them submitting their work to OC ReMix. I didn’t see you link or mention DoD, so just in case: http://dod.vgmix.com/

    Thanks a lot for the mention of OCR. I’m definitely glad to read that you’ve found music and artists you like from us. We’re always glad that we can spread that awareness of guys like these. I also bought Houseworks (at MAGFest 5 – http://magfest.org/ – if you can make it out there one year, you likely can meet them in person), and I was lucky enough to have both house and Ashane sign my copy. They’re both crazy as hell, but they back it up every time they create stuff. All the best to you, Andy!

  2. To Liontamer: Thanks for the comment! I thought I put the link up for DoD, but I guess I didn’t. Same with MAGfest.

    Although they haven’t contributed to DoD lately, House and Ashane are two talents that cannot be overlooked. Even what they played live in their YouTube videos, their playing was uber-tight!

    I would love to come to MAGfest, but I’m not sure what my money is gonna be like around that time. If this blog takes off, and I really hope it does, then it won’t be much of a problem going to MAGfest. As of right now, I’m uncertain as to whether I’m financially able to go.

    Once again, thanks for the awesome comment and feel free to stop by anytime!
