Y'all they're coming to Denver on Sept 17. see www.jjgrey.com or www.mofrofans.com
My first taste of Chromeo was a few years ago: stumbling onto "Tenderoni" on an Irish friend's MySpace page. I was sold.
Nice to know I wasn't the only kid in high school that looked up "that guy in the Warren G song." ;-)
"Like with Fergie, we did the music exactly the way I wrote it," Slash said. "She sang to exactly what I wrote. We didn't change anything. That happened a lot on the record. But then with Kid Rock, and with M Shadows [of Avenged Sevenfold], we worked on those songs from the ground up. mbt shoes
They really had an idea of the parts they wanted to do."
Thanks so much Adam!!
I am a hard core Bodeans fan from Canada, I love all the releases, hard to name my favourite. I love the new record, I was listening to it in the car yesterday, and today I was back to "Joe Dirt Car", hard to beat that one for variety. Bodeans are the greatest American roots rock band of the past 30 years, no one is close in my estimation. Since their following is very loyal, I really don't think the iTunes snub will matter much, other than being an undeserved insult. Most of these flash in the pan artists burn out after 2-3 years of over hype and no one wants to hear them ever again. Bodeans are classic, their music endures. I for one don't mind being part of the cult following, and I am just angry they never come to Canada to perform !!
Have you seen this AJ McLean video interview? Love him!
yeah thats right true fans 100% get it because were in touch with these 2 gorgeous young guys music creativity mind set its way out but all comes together perfectly when you listen i just love how mgmts music takes me to another place away from all the things really suck in life plus andrew is soo pretty and bens a little cutie
Also, this particular Ska Skank Redemption is from Fort Collins, Colorado, not San Diego. We can only wish we were that cool :)
This is Victor from Arach Attack!, one of the founders of the Zombie Party. There is like 10 tickets left. Search for "4th Annual Zombie Party" on face book for info on how to get tickets....if there are any left :(
We promise, next year will be even bigger.
Flynnville Train IS on the right track..."Redemption" rocks! "Preachin to the Choir" is a great song and in fact there are 6 songs on that cd that are perfect examples of their originality and talent. Brian Flynn is the lead vocal on the cd with SOME (1 song) back-up with Dan Baird. Dan is truly a talented musician..but make no mistake..This is Flynnville Train and they hold true to the Southern County Rock that we all love.
Too bad the show was canceled. If you do not coordinate publicity and ticket sales and promotions together, it is the same as trying to go it alone. United we stand, divided we fall. I suggest they get an expert to examine their coordination problem. Very funny Ke$ha, but the answer is "Yeah, Yeah."
Joy to you, Rose
Very excited for the upcoming Paul McCartney Show. From what I hear he is going to be playing familiar songs such as classic Beatles Hits and some of his own favorites. It will be great to hear familiar songs and sing along! Only 2 days until the Denver show!
I found this video which I enjoyed watching:
Go get tickets now:
Hope to see you there!
Thanks Adam! Great perspective and helpful, helpful.
And little Gracie Potter from Waitsfield Vermont will always be our shining star!!!!
!VIVA! Cheap Girls!
Adam you rock!
So now iTunes decides what is and what isn't relevant...
What a (musical) world we live in. I have used iTunes for years now to find older acts and see what they've been up to. I've downloaded "world" music that is not relevant in the context of the U.S.A. or American (corporate) radio.
I find it comforting to know that most "mainstream" radio, the iTunes format, and what music magazines consider to be relevant are proving not relevant at all. iTunes will hang on because of their sheer market volume. But what they throw at me on their music genre pages isn't relevant to me or most consumers.
When they begin to realize that, then there will be hope for them to hang in there and not turn out like the dinosaurs of the (former) record industry and over-the-air radio. As more and more artists figure out Web pages and PayPal, I'll be going direct-to-artists like BoDeans for my music and truly cut out the middle man.
Kurt has his own recording studio and once he gets the Internet down, along with sales at shows of direct CDs, he'll reap all the profits (along with Sam, of course), and be able to bypass the corporate ignoramuses that spell out their own demise. Sure, it won't be tomorrow, but how long ago was it that CDs were considered to be the future? iTunes should reconsider thier god-like statements of what is and isn't relevant.
Mr. Sad Clown, by the way, is an excellent recording all the way around. "Say Goodbye" should be getting A.C. airplay in ALL markets, as should "Gone X 3." "Shine" is another example of radio-friendly music that is relevant today.
Keep up the good work!
What a great and influential player he is. My life is richer for having hear him. May be have many more happy birthdays.
Time for these guys to call it quits.Young has been babbling for decades , always dropping names, who left Poco, blah, blah blah. If the band had done anything maybe the guys wouldn't have left. He talks like it's his accomplishment or Poco's that band members found great success elsewhere. The fact is they didn't find it with him, that's nothing to brag about.
I've seen them a few times over that past few years and nothing has changed since yesteryear.It's a snooze job,filled with slow , dreary tunes, little energy, same stale stuff. Young was barely passable as a lead vocalist in the 70's, now his breathy vocals are a whimper.As for this particular show, I was there. They had the misfortune of playing after Pure Prairie League. Poco was blown off the stage by PPL, who were led by Craig Fuller. That band was on fire, just like the old days, great show. To hear Poco describe it, they had a big night. Maybe it was, as far as old freinds etc, but not musically. Despite publicity like this article, the largest part of the crowd departed after PPL, and even more left by the 3rd or 4th song. No joke, they had less than 100 people under the Palomino tent while performing.
Now, Paul Cotton left, and not exactly on friendly terms. i guess Young is hanging on until he can get a book done, so he can peddle it to the few fanatics who attend the shows.No doubt the book will have stories about all the big names he knows or met, more blah blah blah.He won't have any stories about what a smashing success Poco was so he'll adjust. Hey, maybe he can make the same old stale jokes about The Eagles stealing his bass players !! I wonder why they left ????A perfect example of name dropping.Save your money.
The next time I read that a band actually states that it was influenced by Poco, it will be the first. But ask Young or Furay and they'll tell you every band after them was a direct result of them ! Quite remarkable since hardly anyone knew tham and those that did didn't get to excited anout them ! Sometimes, you're just not good enough. As Chris Hillman said: "They just didn't have very good songs. " Guess what ? They still don't.
Thanks for a more in-depth conversation with Ms. Monae. I appreciate the knowledge an interviewer can bring to the subject without asking the same questions.
Also, I hope you've realized that if indeed, there is a misstep, that "Oh,Maker" is not it.
I think the entire album is near flawless and is a serious contender for album of the year.
