While we do have a submissions folder for new music, our recent shift to more nationals coupled with the flood of country, hip hop, rap, and at times what amounts to drunk old men on an older acoustic guitar singing to you in your facebook e-mail, I’ve been thinking maybe it’s time to move away from this and find another way find new music. At this point I believe we’re up to 7gb of “music” that scares me more than entertains. You have to wonder if the people who bother to find our submissions address even bother to listen to see what we play and if they’re a match. Then one day you are sent s...

Richie Kotzen - Salting Earth Review

Richie Kotzen - Salting Earth Review
As strange as it may be, the best way I can explain Richie Kotzen is that he carries a funk rock style of soulful 70s Motown Jazz Rock fusion that can only be described as a brand new yesterday. A déjà vu of new experiences. From his solo work of an amazing now 21 solo albums to joining forces with Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan for The Winery Dogs to this 21 st solo effort that redefines the expectations of music for everyone else. It just does. The most amazing things he does in this release, Salting Earth , and his style in general is you remember so many things of your own past associated ...

Icepicks for March - Blacktop Mojo

Icepicks for March - Blacktop Mojo
There are so few bands today that can capture your mind, your heart and your imagination all at once in what would appear to be a simple song. To do it several times in one release, well that will take a type of magic, I suppose. In this case, it just took some Blacktop Mojo . Formed in the fall of 2012, vocalist Matt James teamed up with drummer Nathan Gillis and a demo and hit the road. 5 years later they found themselves opening up for one of the biggest 80s rock bands in Bon Jovi just last month in Dallas, TX. Starting off “Where the Wind Blows”, their brand new release, is the title ...

Jack Russell’s Great White – He Saw It Comin’

Jack Russell’s Great White – He Saw It Comin’


When I heard Jack Russell’s Great White would be releasing their debut album, I was beyond excited. Finally, new music from the great Jack Russell! Yes, there is still Great White, but really Jack Russell is the voice of Great White. The music just isn’t the same if he is not the one singing it. This album is proof that he has got a great band behind him, consisting of Robby Lochner (guitar), Dan McNay (bass), Dicki Fliszar (drums), and Tony Montana (guitar, keyboards). The beginning of the first track, “Sign of the Times,” starts off with soft guitar picking melody and vocals, with the tempo ...

icepicks january - the temperance movement reviewed

icepicks january - the temperance movement reviewed
white bear by the temperance movement  - someone say capture the 70s? the younger crowd will simply fall for a good sound. the older crowd will be taken back to yesterday when music was a touch raw, had an edge that pulled you into feeling and in a way, set you free from whatever it was you were doing just minutes before that song started. in this case get yourself free is kinda where i ripped off that quote.  :) there is a sense of honesty that other bands have tried to pull off over the years but can't always get away with for one reason or another. in this case the temperance move...

icepicks december, hell or highwater
i wish you were here for days like these but you saw all the world gave you to see somtimes life just slips away so shed a tear for the dead remember the legacy they left for the time we have left  remember the life and not the death i had a lot already written and so close to saying everything i had to say about the band. then this song came on, "remember the life and not the death" and given how this year has taken a toll on our own musical heros and our own personal losses that can never be replaced, everything about this song just made me fall in love with music and my own memories al...

Who Wants to be KING???

:)

:)
we left the last round of vikings with this cry from ragnar who was both getting through having his brother whip his *** and detoxing from his drug induced loss in paris. to be fair, it was rolos time but ragnar was not ragnar and everyone knew it. enter the new season. i think my only complaint is the "overmakeup" on floki and ragnar that made them look like they were wearing too much makeup, not gotten older. there, that's said. from here i'll talk about the show so if you've not seen it yet, stop if you want. last warning. you'd think my biggest fantasy would come true where lagertha finall...

the walking dead - season whatever

one of the things i pondered so carefully when we left last season in the cliffhanger we did was just how many "real life" people would die before they ever knew who negan killed. i had it all figured out. x amount of population x amount of is a % of fans of the show x amount of people die yearly x amount of fans that would likely die... you get the picture. but the number i came up with was pretty impressive. the "cliffhanger" resolution maybe wasn't exactly what they were looking for as i can see now that it really did 2 things. alienated many fans who thought it was *too* violent set a tone...
