You could win tickets by listening to Alt 98.7 all day. Great! Another opportunity for unemployed people who can listen to the radio all day long and spend the whole day hooked on the busy tone of their smart phone. This is nothing new, a lot of ‘secret show’ giveaways work this way

Suicidal Tendencies’ “Slam City” Video Reviewed

yikes

Different Songs With The Same Name, Part II

igetaround

As attentive readers know, the theme of this piece is great songs by different artists that share the same title.

“Imagine The Band,” A Mashup From Hell

No Mash Allowed

The video helps of course, to take the edge off of it all but it not only is simply bad- its confusing. Since your brain can clearly point out the two songs it almost feels like you have too many windows open on your computer. There is no binding factor.

The Orwells Bite The Arctic Monkeys That Feeds Em

For our next trick we will insult David Letterman

“You can reach that level without turning into that. Like Nirvana played bigger shit than that and it’s probably a different show every night. You don’t have to take that route, you can get that level of success with those size venues, that sort of thing, but still treat is as a spontaneous show at a small club.”

How To Write For A Music Blog

The pipe is optional

If you write all day every day you are a writer and if you are anything like me there is no greater reward in life. I write more than I do anything else, I write significantly more than I read or speak, anything except listen to music.

The A+ List 4-24-14

Any world without George Jones is worse than a world with him

The Love Bug – George Jones – Wayne Kemp, country journeyman, wrote it and George Jones got it right; a smashing, lighthearted romp with love is a disease undertones riddling into the perfect lick. Jones vocal is a masterclass in Williams generation country singing.

Be Here Now – Snap Shot Reviews Of New Album Releases 4-22-14

Jason Molina benefit album

Jason Molina, the late singer songwriter, completely passed me by at the time, but he was something special if this sprawling somewhat epic album. A benefit covers album by alt and indie bands headed by Jim James, whose two tracks are outstanding. The title track and the other, with Bro. Stephen, the breathtaking “Almost Was Good Enough”. But there is a lot more as well, not least the other members of his band, Memorial Electric Co. ALBUM OF THE WEEK – A-

Boy George and The Black Lips, “Bang A Gong”, Reviewed

yikes

Losing the vocal forces us to only endure the visual aspect of this collaboration from hell. The Black Lips are nothing more than a bar band. Non-descript , drum guitar bass for the bland set.
