    Brian May's Red Special, from Hal Leonard Books,  tells the story how the guitarist and his father, Harold, built an electric guitar in 1963. The young May dreamed of a guitar that would outperform any of the existing commercially made electric guitar at the time, and his father had the technical knowledge and skills to help make that dream come true. May played his guitar on every Queen album and in all of Queen's live shows around the world."My dad and I decided to make an electric guitar. I designed an instrument from scratch, with the intention that it would have a capability beyond…

Within the band, Syre plays the guitar and keys while also providing the male vocals and Fresko plays the keys and provides the female vocals for the duo’s songs. The duo creates music that could easily be compared to the likes of another husband and wife musical duo, of Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart who were known as Eurythmics. But unlike Lennox and Stewart who created music with a pop/rock feel to their music, Syre & Fresko’s music is centered within the Alternative Rock genre. While Syre & Fresko…

    Singer-songwriter Tom Guerra spent 15 years with the band Mambo Sons before the band called it quits. During their time together, the band released 4 albums of Indie Rock And Roll. The 4 albums included the last release of Heavy Days, which turned out to be a 2-CD set of music. With Mambo Sons no longer together, Tom Guerra turned his attention to creating his own music. Not surprisingly, Guerra’s sound and style picked up right where Mambo Sons left off and therefore, Guerra’s music contains the same Indie Rock feel of his old band, but with a lot of other influences thrown in as…

    Young Liars is a modern-day Canadian rock band that hails from Vancouver, British Colombia. Currently made up of Jordan Raine on Vocals, Guitar; Wesley Nickel on Keyboards; Ty Badali drums and bassist Andrew Beck, the quartet has been in existence since 2008. The band creates a sound that focuses on the keys from Wesley Nickel and that gives the band a very obvious “pop” sound that will appeal to fans of “pop” music as much as those who prefer a stronger rock sound. In the time that they’ve been together, Young Liars have only produced two EPs- 2012’s…

Once the team had brought their treasure back to the lab, "we kept talking about the 'bat frog,' which led to us talking about being fans of Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath," said Pedro Peloso, one of the frog's discoverers and a postdoctoral fellow at Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi, Brazil.

"It's my life, it’s what I do, it's who I am, and I went to great lengths to cover up [being gay] to  be a country star."

    Adam Devlin
    20 Nov 2014 | 9:35 pm
    Black Spirituals Of Deconstruction [SIGE; 2014] by Adam Devlin Rating: In unceasing repetition, Of Deconstruction extracts understanding from a system stripped temporally bare. An auditory nude in descent, the radiant black body of Black Spirituals’ debut album bridges subconscious desire with studio-savvy free-improvisation. By the constant reiteration of small impressionist figures, Zachary James Watkins (bass, electronics) and Marshall Trammell (trap kit) form uniquely modular, non-linear sound roles. Although it’s of no surprise that a duo with roots in electroacoustic improv…

The enthusiasm with which we’re willing to greet Hellraiser: Deader or Howling VII: Mystery Woman — like they were as acclaimed as Eyes Without a Face or The Shining — is nothing short of laughable.

The Crab With The Gold Claws was my favourite I would run in from playing in the street to watch it. I can still hear the intro: “Hergé’s Adventures of Tintin: The Crab With The Golden Claws”. But these Thompson Twins were very different. These started as a new wave outfit, formed in a squat with full on left wing anarchic values. In my mind I have them bracketed with the Raincoats…

    One of the situations wherein award pins are most used is for the recognition of war veterans. A war veteran is one who has survived a war – may it be World War II, or the Vietnam or Korean War. Even those who came home after their tours in Afghanistan or Iraq may also be considered a war veteran. These pins are given in recognition for the sacrifices these soldiers have made for their countries. After all, these soldiers have effectively laid down their lives for the sake of whatever it is their country is fighting for. In fact, not all are lucky enough to survive unscathed. This is why…

These pins were badges used to distinguish who among the participants are Athletes, who are officials, and who are judges.  In the 1912 Summer Olympics Games held in Stockholm, Sweden, organizers and promoters first introduced ornate metallic pins which were sold and worn by spectators, thus starting the collect ability of sports pins.
