The decline of Western Civilization

So last night, former Thelonious Monster vocalist/songwriter/substance abuser Bob Forrest was on with Piers Morgan on CNN. (Note, whenever I look at Piers Morgan, I can't help but think "smug twat.") Anyway, he was on the program commenting on the Charlie Sheen meltdown. I guess he's a counselor on ...

Devil in My Car (B-52s)

I'll add more when I get home and look at the iTunes library. Seems like this should be a rich vein to mine.

Here's more:
Me and the Devil Blues (Robert Johnson)
Angel Is the Devil (Steve Earle)
Christine's Tune (Devil in Disguise) (The Flying Burrito Brothers)

Growers

Shecky's post last week about the new Decemberists album got me to thinking about those albums that at first, maybe you don't love. Maybe you even are actively hostile to them. Then, over time, the more you hear the artist or album, the more it grows on you. I guess this is similar to the "Nemesis N...

I think that's Neil Peart making fun of liberals. Too much Ayn Rand in his diet. Geddy Lee is just his sexy mouthpiece.

One man's power pop is another man's AOR stalwart. I always thought of Journey as "stadium rock," like the Speedwagon and Foreigner.

I wonder if that kid from the "Boy" cover will ever get his break.

Shecks, I am not willing to label Journey power pop. Power ballads, sure. One of the best in the biz. Practically wrote the rules. Power pop? They ain't no db's. Am I the only one who prefers the Greg Rolle songs to the Steve Perry songs?

Am I the only Glonoid who doesn't own a single Radiohead album? I like their songs. There was always just something else I wanted/needed to buy instead. This will certainly change when I win Lotto.

I think you hit on something with the fading of context and politics. Part of the reason I hated a lot of the bands that I hated was because I was supposed to. You can't listen to Motorhead's "Ace of Spades" and Human League in the high school tribes. It's unseemly. Absent that tribalism, and absent...

Nemesis no more

I wonder if this is happening to any of you other aging rockers. In high school, when they ruled the airwaves on rock radio, I hated both Rush and Journey... Rush probably less so, but then the few Journey songs I liked, I liked a whole lot more than the few Rush songs I liked. Anyway, they were not...
