Monotonous electronic music

I think the lines between Rock 'n' Roll and Electronica are very blurry indeed. The distinction between Rock and Country, Rock and Blues, Rock and Jazz, Jazz and Classical are all vague, nebulous and esoteric opinions of the Intelligensia. These are areas where "crossover" is the only word lackadais...

Underrated, underpaid, underdog

This Mortal Coil : Blood His Name Is Alive : Mouth By Mouth Cranes : Forever Are my Gothic Roots showing? Oh, jeez . . . How's about Red House Painters : Old Ramon (not underrated, but certainly one of the finest records and most overlooked bands in history) Mum : Finally we are no one

Jeff Buckley

Jeff Buckley's version of "Hallelujah" gives me goosebumbs on every listen. Time stands still. Evokes tears of pure joy and pain. This song at once saves your life and dashes it to pieces. Its truth is undeniable. I had the rare priviledge of catching Jeff Buckley live at The Backdoor in San Diego....

does Wilco compare?

I'm starting to believe that they are destined to be this generation's Beatles, that band that evolves from a single genre origin to develop into a influential, unique, creative, innovative band that really leaves a lasting mark. The only problem with this theory is that the Beatles were part of th...

Hitting the nail on the head

I think she said it best herself:

I'm not like other people I know who literally bleed music.

That's pretty obvious by now . . .

British singers

Well, seems like we've named a lot of important, influential talents spanning the years. There is one name curiously missing, one of my favorites:

Robert Smith of the Cure.

Their latest album, Bloodflowers, is truly amazing. Also got to see them live at San Diego's OAT. Very cool.

Ciao!

The Pussies

Well, Mac is Ian McCulloch from Echo & The Bunnymen (not Paul McCartney - who is a genius, but also pre-70's). My mistake about Belle & Sebastian (I had momentarily forgotten. . . call me a Stupid American). Brendan Perry is from Dead Can Dance. At the risk of being shunned by all you Glorio...

FCC's Mistake

The Bush Administration's biggest mistake is that they believe people are sheep. For the most part, we are. But sometimes, on the rare occasion when the issue obviously affects everyone in their daily life, we make our voices heard. I for one am relieved that the changes were defeated. Clear Channel...

The Orange

It's funny how Jake says he doesn't like English singers since the late '70's, yet, The Clash is his backdrop. Ermmm . . . . You don't like Brendan Perry? Chris Martin? The guys from Belle & Sebastian? Mac? There are so many great English bands. There are so many great American bands. Anymore, I...
