We’re playing with these guys in March at DKDC. Listening to Cathedral Ceilings’s’s new album on Spotify, I’m getting notes of fIREHOSE, early Soul Asylum, some Husker Du, and for this song, somebody I can’t put my finger on. Maybe you bastards can help.
Your Other Favorite German Artist
Somewhat at the fringe of my listening adventures, but I find these idiots irresistible.
Best Break-Up Song, College Years
An article about the late, great Rykodisc label sent me down the rabbit hole this morning and I arrived here. What a great song!
These young bastards have potential.
Prepare To Have Your Face Melted
I was just online talking about what a great live album Budokan is, when someone corrected me that this 2020 album (of a 1977 show at The Whisky) easily blows it away. He’s right!
Hey, I Think I’ve Got A Live One
Billion Dollar Babies is kicking my ass today, this song in particular.
Finally got a ride, this old broad down from Santa Fe
She was a real go-getter
She drawled so sweetly “Think child, that things’ll get better”
We pulled off the highway
Night black as a widow
“Yeah, I read the Bible”
She said, “I wanna know of you”
Hey, I think I got a live one
Hey, I think I found a live one
Hey, I think I got a live one
Yeah, Yeah, think I got a live one
Felt like I was hit by a diesel or a Greyhound bus
She was no babysitter
“Get up now sugar, never thought you’d be a quitter”
I opened the back door, she was greedy
I ran through the desert, she was chasing
No time to get dressed so I was naked
Stranded in Chihuahua
Alone, raped and freezing
Alone, cold and sneezing
Alone, down in Mexico
Bon Scott Documentary
In a world exclusive, Australian Story unravels the legend of AC/DC front man Bon Scott, who was on the verge of becoming an international rock star when he died at age 33.
For the first time ever, the program has been granted access to Bon’s family and friends who provide fresh insights into his vulnerabilities and state of mind leading up to his untimely death in London in 1980.
The program features the first interview with Bon’s younger brother Derek and is introduced by Brian Johnson, Bon’s successor with the band.
Bruce Howe, a former bandmate who shared a house with Bon for five years, noticed a big change when he last saw him in late 1979.
“He wasn’t bubbly and laughing. Maybe he’d come to the state where he’d achieved his dream, he found his holy grail, but found that his holy grail might have looked like an empty goblet,” he told the program.
To this day, Bon Scott is considered one of the world’s best rock and roll singers.
I found a first pressing at Shangri-La and forgot how great this album is! The lineup for this release is Jack (Oblivian) Yarber, Scott Bomar, Subteen John Bonds, and John Whittemore. Released on Sympathy for the Record Industry in the year of our Lord 2000.
This is a playlist. CRANK IT UP!
Hard to believe, but Up The Bracket turns twenty this year. If a better album’s come out since, I haven’t heard it.
According to both Al Green and Willie Mitchell, they earned by far the most royalties for this song not from their own version, nor from those of Syl Johnson or even the Talking Heads, but from Billy Big Mouth Bass. Even Queen Elizabeth had one.
