He got me in my franks and beans!

I tuned into the Rick and Chick Morning show on 97FM the other day to hear this exchange: Rick “So, I was shaving my balls the other day” Chick “Oh boy, weed whacker or putty knife” Rick “Neither, I like the feel of the Norelco 950 Extreme, close shave, balls are happy” Chick “I’m glad to see that you’ve done something to that Gorilla Salad down there, might make your pepe look bigger too” Rick “Easy now” *Much laughter and joshing* Now, the thing is, this show and the station it was on went under about seven years ago. It wasn’t on the radio, it was in my brain. You see, I’ve fathomed a complete radio station in my mind with a morning show, afternoon drive and overnight jock. Sad part is, no one will buy my idea for this incredibly crappy, formalic shit-com. Their loss.

Museum Mouth – Sexy but not happy Music Review

Museum Mouth – Sexy but not happy Music Review Museum Mouth – SEXY BUT NOT HAPPY– Bandcamp free download– Music Review by Brad Bugos First off, and maybe most importantly, you can download this LP for free on the bands bandcamp site (link above and below). Why is that important? Well, it’s free music. Second, it shows that the band is confident in their music and their message. They can give it away for free because they know the music is good enough to spread around. I like that, it’s a nice tip of the cap to their potential fans and their confidence in their material. There are a few gems on this LP, good solid pop/rock songs. There are two radio friendly singles (if that term still applied to anything but college radio stations). “Sexy but not happy” is a jaunty little tune, a little bouncy and fun, even if the message seems to be one of loss and forlorn. “Blood Mountain” is the other single, really nice guitar work, the vocal distortion (which I will get to in a minute) really works for this song. Another song of loss and regret? sounds like it, but the nice thing about this album and it’s different tempos and ideas is that the sadness of the subject(s) doesn’t overtake the overall pleasure in listening to the LP. At no point did I think “Get over it already, the time to whine is over” like I do with some bands/artists who write love and loss songs. It’s never over powering or cumbersome. Song 6, “Certain Doom” might be my favorite, I like the low bass and the easy beat of the drum. The vocal interplay is a nice touch too, a little melancholy but not over-rot . The subject of the song seems to be relaying that even though he got dumped by the love of his life, it’s okay, he wanted to be single anyway. I don’t believe him, but it’s a nice sentiment and the first step to mending a broken heart. Now onto the one thing that rubbed me a bit on this LP. It’s the only thing that I didn’t like about it. It’s the vocal distortion on all of the songs. Now some of the songs, especially the upbeat numbers, are guilty of using it more. It’s unnecessary and a bit off putting in places. It doesn’t need to be used. Sure the lead singer is not a strong singer in the world of THE...

Fancy seeing me here or How to Hypnotize your date in three easy steps

I going to take this space to say that I am really looking forward to seeing the An American Demon LP in my mailbox.Loved the book, a really interesting story told in a different frame work. Just solid story telling and very interesting. So now that I have ordered the LP where Jack reads from the book, I can’t wait to see it in my mailbox. It’s been a while since it was ordered but Bad Idea Music assures everyone they are coming soon (although that was posted in late January on their Facebook). One of the most anticipated LP’s for me this year. Can’t wait. Get yourself the book, and if your lucky there are a few LP’s left.

Almah – Motion – Record Review by Phil Chevron

Almah – Motion – Record Review by Phil Chevron ALMAH – Motion – AFM Records – Released January 17th 2012– Music review by Phil Chevron producer for SLTM (the Podcast) This CD reminds me of a lot of bands, some current, some older metal/hard rock bands. That’s fine, I don’t need every band that I hear to sound like something new and ground breaking. If a band, such as ALMAH does here, sounds a bit like other bands, that’s fine, they do it so well, I like hearing those styles again. Now, with that said, some bands that sound like other bands tend to copy one style, if you sound like Queensryche or Iron Maiden or Avenged Seven Fold then that’s all you sound like. Those kind of bands can come and go, because they are only offering you one flavor of your favorite treat, the same flavor you’ve eaten dozens of times before but a bit inferior. This ALMAH I really like. Yeah, I’ve heard these types of sounds before, but never this many previous sounds in one band. Let me explain. This band does all the copy catting or repeating that other bands do, but they take all kinds of different styles, so you have the best of the styles they are copying and they give it an extra kick. Are they as good as Iron Maiden? Well, no, but if you wanted someone to use those types of licks or singing styles, you would want them to mock them at their best. This may not be ground breaking metal or hard rock. What is anymore? nothing. This is very well played, very enjoyable music with some different flavors added to your favorite dish. Let me offer this analogy for this release. I love Papa Dells Pizza, it’s a local Champaign/Urbana, IL staple. Really good pizza, possibly the best I’ve had. Lots of flavor, lots of ingredients and just totally satisfying. Do I eat Papa Dells all the time when I want pizza? No, it’s a bit expensive and a little heavy, but so damn tasty. Plus who wants to wear out their favorite pizza? So? So sometimes I like to order Monical’s Pizza. It’s got a lot of flavor, nice crust, and some of the same ingredients that Papa Dells does. Is it as good? No, but it cost less and it’s a nice pizza. It does some of the same things as a Papa Dells pizza , with a little of it’s own flair....
