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.
“$500 in Taco Bell is a lot of food. I remember from back in the day,” he continued. “We trained ourselves when we first started this band. You can get full at Taco Bell for $2. That’s a lot of meals.”
Win Butlers vocals have never met a note it could match so it always becomes this sort of straining whine. Is it deep emotion or too much ego that pinches his chords and causes such pain?
Seeing the live performances of these guys basically show the extreme contrast in ‘now and then’ stage shows and fan behavior. It’s hard to imagine girls just sat in their seats and screamed seeing the Beatles and rip off their clothes and throw themselves on the stage for Crue
Nothing was worse than having the band up first! You then had to figure out where that stage was located and actually get there withing 10 min. Now months ahead of the tour we at least have a jump on things. The holy graile… the stage assignments.
t hearing news of Led Zeppelin releasing their first three LP’s again and this teaser video just reinforce the fact that yes, they were sexy beasts and yeah that was 40 years ago. But the patchouli wearing wanna be’s rejoice and you old timers can live in days past.
All we can do is hope its better than the past few which have sucked at levels never before known to man. Summer is coming right? Cuz it’s been 40 degrees and raining in the NorthEast and if it doest change soon there will be hell to pa.
I am not a hip hop scholar. I am a person who listens to the genre on occasion when feeling ‘hood. Of course that’s after I put in a full days white collar work in and drive to my suburban 3 bedroom home.
Personally I suggest prostitution events. You can hire a whore and escort services could advertise and hell its just sex right? As we crash through the barriers of ‘puritanical ideals’ I think we should open up all of them to daily routine.
While there is no doubt that music impacts peoples moods it is without question that there is a little lever in the brain that’s not flipped on properly if listening to a tune makes you blow your head off.
Think of all the burger joints youve gone to with interesting menu names. The deal there is that they arent known to the star themselves (or their reps) but when the advertising takes off.. a cease and desist mail arrives on your doorstep.
There is nothing new about Danny Wahlberg and the gang, and they sure aint kids. New Kids On The Block are not idiots and know that the people who loved them as kids are now full blow adults with cash to spend so ..hollah and grab it.
The former Oderus Ungerus is dead. Sadly the Gwar frontman died suddenly leaving his band mates bewildered and his fans wondering if it was a hoax. He also left a family in debt.
He is back..older balder and more light heatedly and you can expect new material very soon. But wait, dig this inspiration. This is not a classic rock cliche, its.. inspired by ballet.
Wonder how he got to Carnegie Hall anyway… practice practice practice. A two night stand June 24 and June 25, catch it if you haven’t already tired of this ‘solo’ tour.
Who the hell is Hatsune Miku? No one, its a hologram that sounds like a helium infused twiddle bug. The pitch alone should star a riot but in consideration of Gaga’s fans, this may just work
Increasing the number of plainclothes undercover security officers, placing drug-sniffing dogs at all entrances, and running background checks on all on-site vendors and employees. The latter of those plans being rather… idiotic but hey you do what you can.
They say that opposites attract but holy hell, its got to be more than that. But go to any rock show and there is a gorgeous girl gushing over the homeliest man with a guitar- its absolutely amazing.
Colin Meloy is the man I hate to love. I shouldn’t appreciate his whining bullshit but man oh man do I. Not so much a guilty pleasure but rather a pleasure that I find just as much confusing
But the truth is peppered in with same old same olds like Keith Urban we have a band that just a short while ago was playing a 200 person venue in Hartford Connecticut (psst we were there). Fabulous news and faith in humanity semi restored (not really). Happy new week!
So basically iPhone is just a powerful penis. Apple’s page for the commercial also states: “You have the power to create, shape, and share your life. It’s right there in your hand.” Indeed!
Its very hard to believe that Blondie has been around for forty years. Its astonishing actually since no one who was involved in the ‘first wave’ of new wave believes they’re over 20 years old.
In Western culture, there is no acceptance of the Canadian seal slaughter, and simply because someone bears the badge of Minister does not insulate them from being a disreputable thug. Murder is not debatable
