SLTM (the Podcast) Episode 225

SLTM (THE PODCAST) Episode 225 : Do you know what you need? ……a blowjob! I don’t really understand the Van Halen Reissue/Remasters that just came out. There are no extra tracks and just because you can re-release the same music over and over, doesn’t mean you should. Who gives a shit that they come from the original masters or are from the original tapes? So what. You released them ten years prior as “REMASTERED” versions. Now the vinyl copies you released this year are totally unnecessary, since you can find used copies in good shape for much cheaper and with the same sound. Until they release the Van Halen catalog with Demos or something extra on the CD (four songs each would be about right), I say we all boycott this bullshit. Stand up, Save your money, go to a used record store and buy the old copies on vinyl.

Lawnmower – Major Head Injury- Music Review

Lawnmower Major Head Injury Save Your Generation Records Lawnmower Bandcamp Looking around at music reviews, or seeing any type of review for that matter, it makes me wonder if it would help a band or label more to give them a negative review then to give them a glowing review. Good reviews are a dime a dozen, speaking to the already converted masses, but a negative review, while speaking to the same people generally, seem to garner more attention. While that attention tends to focus the ire of the bands/labels denizens, it does get a longer lasting, more lambastic and longevity fueled type of attention. This I can’t do with Lawnmower, although I am surely just adding more love fuel to the already building fire. As a band I find interesting and one that I already like, it wouldn’t help them anymore if I “neg’d” their review. Plus, it wouldn’t feel right to plunder someone’s art to justify a theory. The Song “Dinosaurs” – Like Frank Zappa, Dynamite Hack, and Nerf Herder before them, Lawnmower, also has a feel for the adsurd, weird and quirky. “New Constitution” -An Anthrax Type Land Speeder of a song. The last song, even when the singer is a bit off key, ala My Bloody Valentine, the song is well structured, interesting and engaging. “Tether Balls” reminds me a bit of Weezer, or more exactly The Rentals. Also let’s be honest here, all the reference points in the world don’t really mean anything to the reader of the review, except to give a jumping off point. To say that a song or band reminds them of New Bomb Turks is just a reviewers way of saying I miss that band and this band has hints of their sound, which I miss. I rarely, if ever, mean when I say “This Sounds like or reminds me of” that I could be blindfolded , put in a room with both bands and not tell the difference. The fact that your band reminds me of The Didjits (Long Live Rick Sims) doesn’t mean your Dinosaur Jr. Jr. , it’s that I’ve most likely lived a far too long a life as it is, listening to millions of songs and bands/artists. I always look forward to a new release from Lawnmower, WHACK YER BRAIN was wonderful and the songs they released on two Save Your Generation Records tributes were well done too. It’s always catchy, with some weird...

SLTM (the Podcast) Episode 223

Don’t Clap, Laugh or shut the Hell up I just realized that I left the mower running outside. Hold on a second. Okay, that was close. Now where was I? Oh yeah, so anyway Jake told me that when he went to the shed the only thing left was his set of horse blinders, a couple of issues of Atlantic Monthly and a life size cut out of Ryan Leaf. Strange that they would take the time to load up all those rabbit pellets, and used oil containers, and not the Leaf cutout. Maybe it’s because he’s not wearing his uniform but a pair of slacks and a button down shirt and that he looks more like Ken Berry than a former football player. I don’t know.
