Candy Hearts, "I Miss You" Reviewed

Posted by & filed under Slideshow, Track Review.

The problem here is that Avril Lavigne was nearly 20 years ago and that school girl voice really has been done before. The shouting of “I Miss You” is the perfect lyric for the high school sophomore genre this band slot in to

Seven Albums, By Cat Stevens

Posted by & filed under Album Reviews, Slideshow.

In tribute to Imans ability to see Cat live at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, I spent an entire day listening to his catalog. I then went on to provide you a nice consumer guide to most of the discography. No muss, no fuss, just the facts.

Cat Steven's, Actually Yusef, Is In New York!

Posted by & filed under Slideshow, Television.

His showing on Jimmy Fallon nearly sent me into cardiac arrest. Older and behind dark shades he performed a medley of “First Cut Is The Deepest” and “Wild World” accompanied by The Roots. First off The Roots need to chill, between this and their hanging out with Elvis Costello I’m getting a bit jealous

Cat In The City, Welcome Yusuf Islam!

Posted by & filed under Slideshow, Television.

I may not be a fan of Rolling Stone or the Hall of Fame but when someone I actually admire is being recognized, I cant help but feel a bit of excitement. Songs that shaped my youth and adolescence and to this day inspire my actions

Chrissie Hynde Goes Solo With "Stockholm"

Posted by & filed under Slideshow, Track Review.

The Pretenders lost 50% of their band to drugs. That’s a heavy cut and while Hynde and drummer Martin Chambers attempted to carry on the dynamic was gone. Void of any sex appeal whatsoever it just didn’t have that thigh tremble anymore and the case was closed.

Black Flag On Tour, Uh Oh

the band with vocalist Mike Vallely hit the road and actually make it all the way to the East Coast and better than that all the way to Western Connecticut where I intend to be there amongst the upstarts to see whats new from these geezers.

The Wine and Dine Cruise take you to the Caribbean with the band America. I cannot for the life of my understand what has triggered these music themed cruises other than captive audiences.

New Madness Album In The Works!

Posted by & filed under Slideshow, Upcoming Releases.

Word has it now that he is back to the drawing board writing new music for dun dun dun.. New Madness! Now my hopes arent that high, I worry that they cant maintain that youthful sound but I can hope, and that’s exactly what I will do.

Television Lite: March 21st – March 28th, 2013

Posted by & filed under Slideshow, Television Lite.

I could sit here and whine about how no ‘good’ musical guests are ever on television but I’d be writing that to people who actually watch shows like The Voice or American Idol so my though is some of you are actually excited to see some of the acts sitting on the late night couches.

Gathering of The Vibes, Gathering of The Odd

Posted by & filed under Slideshow.

Bridgeport Connecticut is one of the sketchiest citys in the state. Boasting loads of crime and blight it also boasts a little park in which all the wannabe hippies can come once a year with their Winnebago’s and get wasted while listening to throw back music.

KISS and Def Leppard, the Spandex and Fiber Tour

Posted by & filed under Slideshow.

“Pour Some Sugar On Me” will only flare up the diabetes so use caution. The tour skips New York City instead focusing on the ‘burbs and with good reason- the target market here is the kids of the 80’s your gear head greaser and prom queen of days gone by

Paul Stanley of KISS, Sassy Beast

Posted by & filed under Slideshow.

With so much baggage a bunch of old dudes can not (and should not!) pull it together for a last hurrah. I admire them for this. There is nothing more horrible than old men pretending to be what they were decades earlier.

The Kooks, "Down" Reviewed

Posted by & filed under Slideshow, Track Review.

Somehow, somewhere something didn’t align and The Kooks became a nothing. I have always loved their sound, that congested Brit vocal and that poppy yet intellectual sound. They disappeared from my radar and The States weren’t loving them at all.

The annual gathering of like minded folk has taken place in Missouri for years now but due to recent violence issues and just general repulsion the crew has been shoved out and forced to find new digs. Thanks to Thornville Ohio the show will go on this July.
