“Preliminaires” by Iggy Pop Album Review

“Preliminaires” by Iggy Pop – It’s funny to hear this crazy godfather of punk go slow-mo, sounds like a bad heroin overdose. Naw, but really, Iggy and The Stooges have always been one of my favorite bands, much respect to Iggy, but I’m not too keen on this album. I like “Je sais que tu […]

Propaghandi Live Show Review – Glass House, Pomona

23 years and counting, Canadian political punkers, Propaghandi, still gots it! They’re show at the Glass House (Pomona, Calif.) last Friday, May 29 was off the hook! The venue was filled, and definitely not with your average hipster teens, (that’s for sure — but the new Fox Theater had a swarm of  them). I think […]

I came across their new EP, Danger Is just a couple weeks ago, featuring guitar God and epic crooner Dan Auerbach on two of their tracks. You can hear Auerbach’s fuzzy basslines that so easily complement […]

The Black Lips Featuring GZA

The Black Lips get dirty with the GZA and I’m not sure if I like it . . . I think their song “The Drop I Hold” is better off sans the GZA. Don’t get me wrong, I’m down with the Brooklyn native, founder of the Wu, but I’m just not diggin’ this track. Listen […]

Black Lips – Detorit Bar, Costa Mesa

So I was gonna write a review on this very high energy, no vomiting or pissing on fans Black Lips show, but I opted not to.  There’s already a recent review on here of their New York show and it’s pretty damn good. But I will say: the show fuckin rocked! Detroit Bar is a […]

Kate Nash Goes Punk

Following her debut album, “Made of Bricks,” the Ireland born songstress, Kate Nash is preppin’ for her second album. Only there won’t be no preppy in this album. Apparently she wants to fuse some punk into her new sound. So is she jumping on an already worn down bandwagon, or has she always liked punk […]
