Everyone’s favorite obnoxious punk band is back, after only 16 years!  That’s right, I’m talking about The Dead Milkmen, who have an all-new album recorded and ready to go.  The Milkmen broke up in 1995, but got back together in 2008 after playing a few shows that went well for them.  After composing new songs […]

Album Review: The Black Belles’ Self-Titled Debut

Mon, Nov 7, 2011


On first listen, The Black Belles’ debut is quite comfortable; it feels like an old standby.  That might be because I’m a big fan of The White Stripes and The Dead Weather, two bands that have Jack White’s weird influence.

Yesterday night, the NYC garage revivalists dropped by Conan, a mutual regular acquittance as the show’s host confessed himself, where they played “Games” off their recently released new album. The performance itself was flawless as far it faithfully followed the studio version, however I found it to be a tad plain and murky. Well, it […]

This Saturday the NYC garage re-revivalists returned to SNL as part of their third live appearance on the show, where they played two tracks promoting the new upcoming album, “Angles”.

Wed, May 5, 2010


Frank, the Funkasaurus Rex, is back once with his latest feature in The Black Keys video for “Next Girl“, a very low and sexy song off the band’s upcoming new album. While Frank is always a joy to watch dance and lipsync, the whole take goes to the gorgeous ladies in the video this time. […]

Album name: Sweethead Artist name: Sweethead Genre: Rock Released: November 2 2009 Label: Strange Addiction/Play It Again, Sam ZME Rating: 5/10 Website: I sure hope the record company suit who decided it’d be a good idea to release Sweethead’s debut album in early November is picking bullet fragments out of his own navicular bone […]
