I've been meaning to post this photo for a while...my friend
Adam went on some super long hike up the Pacific
coast, and this was the "after" photo from when he finished
the trip. Total Grizzerly Adams situation, it makes
me laugh every time I look at it...
Saw a matinee show of Condor and Experimental Dental School
a month or so ago at the Make Out Room...
god I love a matinee show. Rock music + getting home
early is my cup of tea. Yeah, I know that makes me
sound old, but fuck it. Photos of Experimenta Dental
School next go around, which will hopefully be a quicker
turn around than this time out.
Richman & The Modern Lovers - Ice
Cream Man. Gone is the Velvet Underground-inspired swirly
rock, this track is from one of the early
albums where Jonathan started to really focus in on the sound that
would carry him through present-day stardom.
Truly one of the most engaging live performers I have ever
seen. The Kinks
Can't Go To Sleep. Early Kinks are the best Kinks as far as
I'm concerned, and this is one
of the best of their best, and they gotta
lot of bests. The Rosebuds - Blue
Bird. Can't. Get. This. Song. Out. Of. My. Head. The
more I listen to The Rosebud's
sophomore album, the more I realize it's
most likely going to make my top 10 of the year list. The Sleepy Jackson
Day. It took me a while to get into this album, but now I
love it...and I think it's be-
cause I realized that it was filling that
George Harrison niche that has been missing lately... We Ragazzi
You Queens Tonight. I'm glad someone is channeling the ghost
of Ian Svenonious.
Wait, whaddya mean he ain't dead? Still,
this Chicago trio brings the catchy rock songs in exactly the way
I like them.
***November Fourth Two Thousand and Five***
I have no idea what this means, but I like it.
Some pics from their most recent show at Bottom of the
Hill, opening for Portastatic.
I also took snaps
of them and the openers Citizens Here & Abroad,
but they all came out assy.
will be back in town later in the month at Great American Music Hall
with the Shout Out
on November 16th. It
would be in everyones best interest to go there for the great pop music.
Two photo journal entries: one from the final show of
the Hate Breeders, a Misfits cover band; another from
a trip to an A's game, one of the last ones of the season.
for yer music fix: Let's
Make a Punk Mix! part four and final... The Art Attacks
am a Dalek. Very short-lived British punk band from 77-78,
who only had a handful of
songs; this one is the stand-out track
from their (I believe) only 7 inch release. The Autistics - What
a Way To Go. Early 80's San Diego punk...simple, catchy,
good. The Bodies - Radio.
Shit, I can't find anything on these guys except they are
from California. Song rules tho'. The Thought Criminals - More
Suicides Please. One of those original Australian punk
bands that are still
getting a lot of mileage from the cool
kids. Every time I listen to this song I get that intro "ba-da-bump"
bit stuck in my head for days. The Weird Lovemakers - Gotta
Gotta Get Some. Look, an almost new band! Well,
they're broken up now,
but this Tucson group rules. Some
of the members went on to form The Knockout Pills, another dude was
involved with the Radio Reelers, both
