Is it just for attention? Is it adrenaline, stupidity, desperation? I guess the theatrics are something I will never understand but what I can tell you with full conviction is if some band threw blood on me, security would be very busy pulling me off the stage as I kicked their asses.

Lost is an interesting adjective, it simply has not been played since 1929. A rarity of the highest form and for Porter fans a glimpse into their idols less known works. With Showgirls and tap dancing a full out old time production.
“I feel quite passionate that anything that encourages people in music, just to see people with enthusiasm having fun even though they’re all different abilities… rise to the occasion, it’s fantastic!”

So now Jack White issues this public apology for bad behavior and I cant help but wonder why he is being such a pussy. C’mon already with the apologetic bullshit when we all know it was meant- and that it’s ok to feel as you do. In support of his upcoming release Lazzaretto, he is on a press junket providing an interviewers dream
Silly that ‘late night’ TV has become such a drag When you’re up late at night with insomnia you should be treated to new sounds and disturbing images not the same artists who appear in soda commercials. Unfortunately thats not the case at al
So The Adams Family has released a new song and performed it on Conan June 11th. Luckily Gomez and Morticia stopped speaking in French long enough to get this twangy tune in the can. It seems Gomez is no longer able to shower and is boycotting the barber, Morticia has been sucking on helium so much it’s hard to recognize her voice any more.
Squeeze was and will always be one of the most memorable bands of the 80s to this day I adore their work and find myself belting out random lyrics at the oddest times. Granted, this tour is not Squeeze but just the blonde guy but still- he was the pipes so you can be sure he’s throwing in some classics and that alone is reason to attend.
The rumors are that his ‘medical team’ deemed it necessary. Now lets see, Moz was happy, laughing, giddy and slurring words when we saw him in Boston-was he under the influence of something? I honestly do not think so but what the hell do I know without a urine sample.
On the press junket for his soon to be released album Lazaretto he’s babbling like a brook about just about anything. He got a bit introspective and somewhat melancholy over youth- it’s not as if he’s in the twilight of his days but hey let the man chat
Although the tune came out in 1965 this video is from 1967 and may well be one of the most incredibly awkward videos of all time. But honestly this just adds to the magic of the tune. So first off THANK YOU Mozzah for introducing me to a great artist!
Boston you didn’t disappoint. Your notoriously my least favorite city and when the crowd started walking out (for lack of hits) or sitting down or dashing out (during Meat Is Murder) your lack of fandom and lack of manners and couth were showing. But it wasn’t meant for you- it was meant for us.
Fall Out Boy is on Ellen. That’s the oddest thing to me. Pop punk old men are sitting on her couch. Im not sure why I find this so striking, they’re not exactly ‘Alternative’ but for some reason I still consider them lesser known.. I have a mental block with them.
Musically its cheap and bland and Boz really? Can you throw some of the Polecat spirit in it? You don’t have to be the backdrop here if you don’t want to – its not Mozzer, this is your baby..why are you so diluted in your moment to shine?
Do you have a vacancy for a back scrubber? Kristeen Young packs up and goes home
the engagement in Atlantic City at the Revel Ovation Hall has been postponed to Sunday, June 22. All previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new date. The tour will resume as originally scheduled, without question, at the Boston Opera House on Saturday, June 7
Some overly sensitive souls were screaming that the get up was mocking the Jews…are you fucking kidding me? Photos from the concert show Macklemore wearing a black wig and beard and a fake hooked nose. Which we all know screams “Mock a Jew” at the highest level.
Earlier today Mozzer was spotted chatting up some British football players in the lobby of his Miami hotel.. could it be? I mean someone just said Miami is the ‘Gay Mecca of The South”.. is he having too much fun?
The Decemberists are part of that granola eating plain scene who bitch and moan about photos and videos. If you are one of their deciples youre going to honor their request- if you are like Rebecca Bohanan the chick who ballsed up and taped a couple tunes in Portland last week, you reap the rewards of capturing a fine tune.
I wasn’t expecting this kind of response to a comment I made, but it has been a wakeup call and has radically altered my own views as to how I want to live in this world. I always try to do what I think is right. I’ve always been very vocal and opinionated, but this experience with the media has not been positive, nor productive.
When musicians become actors or worse TV hosts its never a good thing. There seems to be a false sense of glory for rockers- just because they’ve had some success they feel they can act, and model, and host and really now c’mon, stick to your day job.
There is talk that the show would basically have to sell out at every stop in order to stay out of the red- was it poor ticket sales causing the halt? Not sure but if the below video is any indication…things were pretty rough.
Some of you may know and even less of you may care that Bret is a massive diabetic. He has been out their preaching (when he’s not dying of course) and fundraising for research dollars at every moment he gets.
The best act of the week is once again on Jimmy Fallon although I’ve just about had enough of him (our local morning news feels obligated to blast his ‘funniest bit’ over and over on the hour)he scored the coolest chick in music, Chrissie Hynde.
THE BLUEBLACK HUSSAR is an insightful documentary that follows Adam Ant during his obsessively driven comeback of 2011 after battling mental illness, sectioning and public acrimony.
Robert Plant is saying there will be no reunion so there you have it– and thank God. Let the legends remain pristine the last thing we need is to see Plant with a sock in his Depends singin’ “Whole Lotta Love”..ew.
It seems to me that no band is content with just being a band. Between the endorsements and the promotion and the ‘branching out’ its a never ending cash cow, at least in this case Bono is not trying to act or direct, just scoring the music.
Performing at The Garage in London, all 7 songs will be done- no word on who’s picking up the vocals but it wont be Bowie. Considering this album came out in 1970 the opportunity to hear it live with two of its original creators is pretty cool- but vocals doth maketh the sound.
The kids would love it of course. From the cheap seats you wouldn’t see the human decay going on. With technical advances the aged sound can be corrected and whoa nelly the cash would pour in like the Hoover Dam sprung a lead.
well it was a pricey event for the caliber of acts but then again it is Boston. With lesser known if not obscure acts on before 3 it gave a nice thrust of humans after 6pm when the population doubled in minutes. That being said the fall line up should do just the same
At age 49 she insists upon tossing herself into media at any opportunity an army of PR professionals could never clear her name- ever. Forever doomed as the psycho chick shes gotten too old for it to be cool. Now she wants to make more music.
Hey now summer is knocking on your door and you should be out there drinking beer and throwing foods on the grill. There is no need for you to be watching television and whoa.whoa..wait.. is that Sean Lennons band Ghost of a Saber Tooth bla bla bla?
Iced Tea is a rich man in LA now with zero street cred and even less charisma. So whats a gal to do? Don’t watch and only listen. By doing so I have found that “Talk Shit Get Shot” is a great tune filled with perfect expletives and a nice metal beat.
Remember when Brit was a hot mess kicking peoples ass with an umbrella and shaving off all her hair? She brought Southern trailer park to a whole new level when she quite simply flipped out and did so very publicly
Stenciled on the ground outside Manchester UK’s infamous fast food joints is the “Meat Is Still Murder” stamp paying homage to the infamous Smiths tune. Moz, a long time animal activist has promoted PETA at all of his gigs and has just recently offered up the tune “I Know It’s Gonna Happen Someday’ to the cause.
The Mozerians will rejoice as mobs often due but in my effort to remain objective amongst the mayhem I cannot let the lyrics slide. The story is fine- much like any other world issue blather but ugh, c’mon with that last word echo.
This latest video is by far the most depressing music video I have seen in forever and the most thought provoking. Done by Anslie Henderson the string people wither away before your very eyes and it kicks you in the gut.
It took Pitbull 20 takes on this tune. I’m hoping they’re speaking of the entire track and not just the vocals. I’m sure its pretty tough to sing a song without shouting out locations so that may be the problem.
From Jenga to model trains the efforts of a DJ are diluted to nothing but button pushing and of course waiting for just that right moment to drop the bass. DJ s are cashing in on the edm movement and this video gives a nice ribbing to that fact.
In an effort to keep their profit up the lingerie lines was designed in hopes that rock and roll sexiness would be their niche’ unfortunately their current client base is about 12, so … yeah… that’s awkward.
It’s like George Thorogood , Elvis Presley and The Beatles dropped their DNA and this was created. An incredible Tennessee sound so much so that it sounds like something out of Sun- but it’s Third Man.
Conor Oberst shows up on Fallon to make the middle class kids cry that their lives are so tough and Debbie Harry shows up to tell us that with enough plastic surgery and a endless wardrobe budget you can rock this town well into your 60s.
They had a great stop at South by SouthWest but then again who didnt? A music forum such as that is set up for rave reviews since the excitement of the event is blurring the actual qualtiy of what you’re seeing. Darn shame.
Pre ordering albums is also dumb. Why are they going to sell out? That was the reason for pre ordering anything back when things were sane but now its just a cash inducing idiotic marketing scheme. Build the hype, throw them a bone.
Morrissey’s next album is being released under Capitol Records, meaning he’s now with Katy Perry and Neil Diamond…two not-so-quality artists. It’s pretty cringe-worthy and to be honest, seems like a bit of a cop out.
I am not so much concerned with the sound of his voice but the content of his words. When you’re basically living the lifestyles of the rich and famous, can you really hit home lyrically with the hood?
You have had your fill of Gene Simmons (or so it seems) so the Starman is up to bat to make sure that KISS never fades away and is perpetually in the media
She stomps up with this new ditty “You or No One” and although it starts off in that nasal pitch I tend to dislike it evolves into a perfectly perfect toe tapping pop tune. Wow, it sounds like 1986 but in a good way.
Again, not sure on its authenticity but its all in good fun anyway. Wonder what is on their riders now. Joyce and Rourke- well, do they even have riders or do they have to pack their own?
“I was pretty diligent with my detection work,” he says. “I didn’t want to put together a compilation where ninety percent of it had been bootlegged.”
This was, of course, the first night. But isn’t that your adrenaline fueled power play show? Let’s put it this way… the stage crashers infamous for hopping on stage for a hug at encore were so over zealous that Moz simply left.
