On par with opening for a puppet show like Spinal Tap did, Badfinger played a Milwaukee Monster Movie show called “Shock Theater”. Hosted by a guy calling himself Toulouse No-Neck.
Ran across an ad for Kiss’ “Rock and Roll Over” which sent me into the YouTube black hole.
Proto-metal, proto-punk, NWOBHM, stoner rock, psychedelic, 70’s rock. Usually this makes me yawn and mumble something about do we need another one of these bands.
While I found the last album “Bang, Zoom, Crazy Hello” to be a bit of a let down, overall it was pretty good. This new song really does nothing for me. Hopefully the rest is better. It’s raw sounding but the song makes me shrug, well until the very end double-time-chorus-outro part which is what gives me hope.
After Gillan disbanded John McCoy teamed up with Samson main man Paul Samson to make this euro-rock jem.
Armageddon Paths and Planes and Future Gains
The most ‘rocking’ track on this supergroups sole album.
Warrior Soul Ghetto Nation
The last great album by Kory Clarke’s politically charged group.
The Sound Heartland
Post-punk on the more pop end of the scale.
Arcturus Nightmare Heaven
Black metal goes prog.
Blue Oyster Cult Astronomy
My favorite BöC song.
Robert Fripp Breathless
This could have been off of King Crimson’s Red.
Iron Virgin Rebels Rule
A great ‘Junk Shop Glam’ song.
Océan Attention Contrôle
Another AC/DC worshiping French band.
Gary Numan I Die You Die
Telekon’s best song that’s not on Telekon.
Wire Short Elevated Period
Wire continues to make good music well into the new millennium.
As close to a pop song as a band that revels in dirges.
Heavy Load Saturday Night
An all time favorite Heavy Metal band.
Thin Lizzy Thunder And Lightning
First thunderstorm of the year brought this on.
D.I. Falling Out
Just wanted to hear this one. Always seems these guys are forgotten.
The Dirty Nil No Weaknesses
From my favorite album of last year, 90’s worshiping rock.
