Frenz Experiment is great, and one of my favorites. I slightly prefer This Nation's Saving Grace and The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall , but whatever. All 3 of those are winners. If you like them, start digging into their late 70s stuff, too. The albums aren't as cohesive, but the sin...

I find his take on rap surprising, seeing as a couple of his favorite bands--The Clash and Blondie--were such huge champions of the NYC hiphop scene.

Them Crooked Vultures

So, Pitchfork has posted the first single by Them Crooked Vultures (Josh Homme/Dave Grohl/John Paul Jones): http://pitchfork.com/news/36915-hear-them-crooked-vultures-first-full-studio-track-new-fang/ I've listened to it twice and am wondering if it can possibly be as great as I think it is. I hope ...

Can't believe I haven't heard of this guy before. After a quick bit of research, I have come to the conclusion that he is indeed one of the biggest douches in the world, and deserves to have all of the bad things in life thrust upon him and nobody else but him. If I ever see his his out-of-rehab ass...

The Monks always seemed a little too mature and arty for my idea of garage rock. I've always prefered my 60s punk to be made by snotty American teenagers trying to be the Stones. But I've recently been listening to Black Monk Time , and it's definitely cool. You can tell that they were "manufa...

No love for Hawkwind? I give you "Masters of the Universe" (or pretty much anything off of Space Ritual.) Also, B-52's "Planet Claire," "There's a Moon in the Sky (Called the Moon), and "53 Miles West of Venus." Blondie "Rapture" Ran-Dells "Martian H...

Keith Richards falling out of a coconut tree would've been pretty great.

And wasn't Boogie Down Productions' DJ Scott La Rock shot to death onstage? Maybe not "rock," but still.

Okay, I'm about to lose all my indie cred, but 'Singin' In The Rain' is actually pretty awesome. Not at all...I love that movie. Also, 'West Side Story.' I guess it's because I saw it when I was a little kid and decided right then and there that I wanted to be in a gang. Then I reached the wise old...
