Prisoner is his 16th in 18 years as a solo artist.  Prisoner is his breakup album.  His 6 year marriage to Mandy Moore officially ended last year so one […]

Favorite Halloween Theme Music Videos that are not Thriller

No question, we all love Thriller but sometimes we need slightly different thrills to add to our Halloween enjoyment.  Here are a dozen videos that make my body start to shiver.

Bands with similar sounding names

Opening act for Benjamin Booker last week at The Roxy was a band playing Coachella this year from Leeds called Eagulls.  They really knocked me out.  Lead singer George Mitchell sounds like Robert Smith and the band reminds me of the shoe gazer bands of the 90s like the recently reunited Ride.  But the band’s […]

New Music Tuesday

Apparently Halloween is near as the freaks are starting to come out and release new music. By freaks, I mean beloved artists that have shown their freaky side a few times in their career. The first freak is Peter Gabriel.  He may look like a harmless grandfatherly figure now but during his Genesis days he […]
