    Photos & Story by Scott A. Smith How on earth can anyone not go see Beatles drummer Ringo Starr in concert? 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. Starr’s full-house…

    Photos & Story by Scott A. Smith On paper, the still-fresh departure of original singer-keyboardist Steve Walsh could have signaled the death bell for Kansas. 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…

  • Cracker's David Lowery Unveils New Country Ballad, Talks Upcoming Double Album

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Cracker have been weaving subtle yet undeniable country twang throughout their sound since their 1992 self-titled debut. See "Mr. Wrong" from that album, or even "Lonesome Johnny Blues" from the 1993 follow-up Kerosene Hat. But with their new double album, Berkeley to Bakersfield, out December 9th, the alt-rock radio band known for such hits as "Low" and "Get Off This" dives headfirst into the California country sound. At least on the Bakersfield portion of the album. Listen to an exclusive premiere of the track "Almond Grove" below. 100 Greatest Country Songs of All Time "I remember when we…

It's weird to hear Jessica Lange's Marlene Dietrich wannabe Elsa sing the name "Jim Morrison" on a show based in 1952 Jupiter, Florida, but the Born to Die - Paradise Edition track does fit the overall theme.  Elsa croons, "Me and God, we don't get along so now I sing," which is the "Gods & Monsters" lyric that resonates the most with these characters and ties in with the overall plot: Many of these "freaks" hold an…

    Alriiiiight — hit the play button on “Shiftless en Nkawkaw,” our first glimpse of the upcoming self-titled Sungod LP on Holodeck Records, and let yourself drift into the band’s live neo-kraut explorations. I say “live” not only because the session begins with a cough into a room mic, but because the band’s sprawling rock-meets-noise-improv approach could have only been captured in such detail by way of a live take. I say “neo-kraut” because the band’s churning walls of synth, kinetic forward motion, and flute-abetted melodic leads…

    Lilting Dir. Hong Khaou [Strand Releasing; 2014] by Derek Smith Rating: Lilt (verb): to sing or play in a light, tripping, or rhythmic manner It is the rare film whose title describes its style and tone rather than referring to something within its narrative, but Hong Khaou’s Lilting is so deliberate in its pacing and structure that it is a surprisingly apt signifier of what to expect on-screen. In fact, this stylistic lilting is so pervasive it’s distractingly hypnotic, only not in that Tarkovsky/Malick/Lynchian way that is entirely freeing and invigorating, but rather in a…

A concept reigned in to Flatlands, Objekt’s debut full-length and first effort for the PAN label, every particle and idea is in motion. Anchored by the familiar sonic strokes of the “Agnes” tracks — “Agnes Revenge” and “Agnes Apparatus” — the album defines itself as a dance-focused record synced out of time with the dancer.

    Kicking off this dreary Saturday morning with Dave Pratt and the Sex Machine Band’s ‘The Worst Of Dave Pratt “The Wild One” Volume Three: Turbo Mother’. Admittedly not my best work, but hey it was the 80’s and shit was crazy back then, say what can I say? It is what it is. Alright, just kidding, I have nothing to do with this record aside from the fact we have the same name. From what I gathered Dave Pratt was radio DJ in the Phoenix Arizona area. I’m guessing was a classic rock morning radio show personality, and probably some what of a shock jock.

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?
