    Ten Years After Newcastle Mayfair 5th Oct 1973 & Newcastle City Hall 21st April 1974 Friday night at the Mayfair, 1973, and Ten Years After were playing! There was a special buzz about this gig. It wasn’t that often that we got the chance to see Alvin Lee and Co. in a ballroom setting. We went through early and joined the queue which curled right down the length of Newgate Street. Once inside we wandered around the balcony, visited the many bars and then tried to get a good spot on the dance floor, ready for when TYA came on stage. To say the place was packed was an understatement.

    ID lanyards are used to represent a school, company or a government office. As each organization is unique, each lanyard should be unique, too. If you have been given the task of creating the design for your company or school’s ID lanyards, here are some tips you might find useful. 1.Stick to the company or school’s overall design. Do not deviate from the official color, style or symbol of your organization. Always remember, the ID lanyard is one form of representation for your company or school.

Proof that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee still can deliver the high-decibel goods was on full-tilt display when Santana hopped through an energized set Oct. 5 at the Walmart AMP in Rogers, Arkansas.

Over the years, some people, quite bizarrely, take unfair verbal pot shots at Starr, that perpetually smiling, left-handed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member who always plays the drums as if he were a right-handed craftsman. Curiously, virtually every one of those armchair guitarists who utter the elitist “He’s no Lennon/McCartney/Harrison” gobbledygook has never watched Starr — and most likely, no other Beatle — perform in person.

For many of the rock group’s faithful “Wheatheads,” Walsh’s distinct tenor voice, prog-rock songwriting and adventurous keyboard skills played major roles in Kansas’ sound and character. Walsh’s recent – and quite surprising – retirement from Kansas led the group to hire new singer-keyboardist Ronnie Platt (Shooting Star). Platt and new keyboardist (and former Kansas lighting crew…

    By Jspicer on Oct 22 2014 It might be strange to some but I was an alt-country teen. I devoured Uncle Tupelo (and those early Wilco and Son Volt records). I was entrenched with Slaid Cleaves and Whiskeytown CDs and dug into the presumed forefathers of the country-rock hybrids that led me back into new valleys lush with Richmond Fontaine and Richard Buckner. Though many of them disassociated with the confining genre identifier, it’s found a suitor with Nate Wallace’s Hearts of Oak. The Portland based band should be gracing every page of No Depression, a twisted version of country…

    I’m down with my boy Brian Pyle (a.k.a. Ensemble Economique). Way down with his sounds, especially “Your Lips Against Mine” featuring vocals from Sophia Hamadi. Just the sonic measurement between twinkling guitar work, two-ish-step back drums, the softest bass beat, and floating vocals are perfectly in tune with a harmony only found within the beyond. Goodness, even this pillow talking juxtaposed with seared electronic (randomized) pulses and ethereal drag in his Naked Island stuff with Felicia Atkinson; my mind is currently expanding. So, in a listener-to-musician respect,…

For example: what do you get when you add two cups East Coast grindcore, a liberal spritzing of legendary Japanoise cone ripping, and a dash of pretty cool metal record label? Why, a Full of Hell & Merzbow collaborative album on Profound Lore, of course! Haha! What a great way to introduce this album, am I right?!

Florian Habicht [Oscilloscope; 2014] by Slouch Rating: Used johnnies, a souvenir ashtray brimming with lipstick coated fags, Stars on 45 LPs and Chinese Girl by Vladimir Tretchikoff. This is the world Jarvis Cocker and his band Pulp inhabited and, it now seems, memorialised. Their music, a knowing but affectionate fusion of high-60s camp, B-list glam and tacky synth flourishes, seems both prescient (predicting Ariel Pink and his followers at least ten years early) but also completely inconceivable in an era where pop is nothing more than…

    KISS - Alive 35: Live at Credit Union Centre, Saskatoon SK, Nov 10 2009 (Concert Online) I would buy any “instant live” type CD by Kiss — that’s a given. The sheer quantity available means I will never own a complete collection of them. What I chose to do was buy a handful, selectively. I was most interested in Canadian shows, and of course concerts where new songs from Sonic Boom were performed. Kiss’ concert in Saskatoon on November 10 2009 fit the bill perfectly.

Perhaps they think that it is true because one, it doesn’t use too much energy, two, the rich ones love the scene and the freshness of a traditional golf course, and three, most of its equipment are expensive. The thing about the equipment being expensive and all might be true. Well maybe the view and the freshness of a golf course might also be correct, though who wouldn’t be enticed with it, right?
