It’s hard to sell your soul when no one wants to buy it

This is a very special episode. Not only because I’ve just basically given up trying to get people to listen to this show,but because it’s the last new show until December. We’ll have a couple more, maybe three if I feel like it, including a best of show. For now, enjoy this retro-cut show, it’s got a lot of bands from Champaign/Urbana Illinois that existed back in the late 1980’s and early to mid 1990’s. Good music from my 7 inch record collection that you probably won’t hear elsewhere. Tune it in and soak up some Rock Music from Champaign during the 1990’s. MUSIC ON EPISODE 127 of SLTM (The Podcast) Civic Park – This is the one from Kansas City Park– Originally from Springfield, IL then they moved to Champaign,IL 16 Tons – Double Play, includes two songs from different 7 inch records Menthol Ed Hall SLTM (the Podcast) Episode 127 [ 46:15 ] Play Now | Play in Popup |...

My Love letter to Greg Hickenbottom (Huckey Dere)

This is a song that I wrote the lyrics to, and the wonderful Chicago Band The New Duncan Imperials wrote the music. They had a deal at one time, if you sent them $25 and lyrics they would set music to your lyrics and send you a cassette. I sat down one day, probably back in 1991 or 92 and decided that a song about Greg would be funny, especially if the band could give a New York accent to the chorus “HUCKEY DERE”. They nailed it, Pigtail Dick (not his real name) hit the New York accent perfect. Give it a listen, I dug up the cassette and copied it to my computer and post it here for your listening pleasure. Oh, and if you see Greg sometime, yell “Hey Dere, Huckey Dere!” Huckey Dere Song by Brad Bugos and NDI [ 2:32 ] Play Now | Play in Popup |...

Iron Lamb – THE ORIGINAL SIN Music Review

Iron Lamb – THE ORIGINAL SIN  Music Review IRON LAMB – Original Sin – Music Review by Phil Chevron (philchevron@gmail.com) Well, what could be better than a gritty punk metal band and their new slab of music? Not much to this podcast producers world worn ears. I’ve been listening to music, all kinds of music, and writing reviews for a long time. I started out as a contributor to Brad Bugos’ SLTM (the Zine) back in 1997, so I’ve heard my share of music. This LP rocks, I mean really rocks. Not some approximation of where rocking might be located if you were fifty miles to the left and slightly over the top of it. No, this is it right here. Rock n’ Fuckin’ Roll. This band throws it all out there with such verve and energy, I can only imagine the sweat soaked honies standing stage front at one of their shows. They cover Motorhead’s “Poison” with enough conviction to the original and some spice of their own that you might swear that this is a new song that has been dug up from Motorheads early days. There is a certain raw energy to it that I thought only Lemmy and Motorhead could do. Nothing will be like the original, that’s true, but this one makes a nice substitute and it gives a nice flow to the album, The Original Sin. What else does this album have? Lots of speed, not speed metal, but speed punk rock. Well, that may not be accurate, as the guitar work on this album gets some nice stretches and flashes of arena rock, so maybe speed punk rock might be the bread that holds this sandwich together. This record features 10 Tracks, including the Motorhead “Poison” cover. Sometimes the band reminds me of Motorhead. Other times, I get the vibe they have been listening to Pepper Kennan era C.O.C., Jane’s Addiction, and Black Flag. I can hear those influences, and I like it, it’s like this band got a glimpse at my record collection and decided to write a rockin’ album based on stuff that I like and that is cool. Good Choice. However, let’s be clear this is not a copy cat, not a band that just regurgitates what it has ingested. No, way to much talent with this band. Nice guitar work, where you would think there would be light guitar solos or shorter guitar passages, this band lights it up, which they should do with such good...
