Six! Halloween appropriate songs for All Hallow’s Eve. Enjoy! Prince Of Darkness Alice says, “I really like this song because it’s […]

New Music Friday

Two things I still love,  Halloween and 80s music.  So you can imagine my joy knowing the Stranger Things Soundtrack Volume 2 will be released today. Don’t worry you won’t be lost in the plot if you don’t own Volume 1 but Volume 2 does contain compositions from Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein such as […]

Get Out And See Alice Cooper

Yesterday I poked a little fun at Alice Cooper during his Maurice Escargot phase, however I still think Alice has a dynamic stage show and the fact that he’s playing in LA during the weekend of Halloween means it is a can’t miss show. Think I’m kidding.  Check out this performance of the timely song […]

Alice Cooper is Maurice Escargot

For Halloween I wanted to find something unusual from Alice Cooper and man, did I find it. It’s probably the most terrifying thing you will ever see and hear from Alice Cooper.  It was an album called Lace and Whiskey In 1977, Alice Cooper decided to pivot from The Godfather of Shock Rock to create a […]

2 For 2uesday

R.E.M. may have broken up back in 2011 but they are still active in their contributions to the upcoming election.  Case in point are their two contribution to 30 Days 30 Songs.  The first song is a live version of World Leader Pretend.  It’s a song from 1988 (also an election year) that is still […]

Bill Hader

I’ve always loved Bill Hader, comedian ever since I first saw him do his impression of Vincent Price.  I’ve now become a fan of his taste in music. He recently did a guest DJ spot on KCRW and talked about his love of both punk and RUSH and mentioned Nomeansno.  I’d never heard of them and pulled […]

New Music Friday

It might be hard to believe but 82 year old Leonard Cohen has been more prolific than Lady Gaga. Although Lady Gaga released a covers album with Tony Bennett in 2014, it’s been three years since her last album of original material was released. Meanwhile Leonard Cohen is releasing his third album of original material since […]

Patti plays a show tonight honoring the 40th anniversary of Horses […]

Innovators/Imitators 2017 Rock Hall Nominees

The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees were released so that means I’m disappointed knowing The Cure, The Smiths, Nine Inch Nails and Devo are not even invited to the dance. That said, it’s time for the 6th Annual Let’s Not Get Carried Away Innovators vs. Imitators to determine who deserves to get […]

2 For 2uesday

I rarely post about new bands just because it’s impossible to make an impression with one listen and no knowledge whatsoever on the band.  Once in a while though it’s fun to acknowledge that perhaps a band has potential and is worth your attention.   The band Secret Cameras hails from London and their first single […]
