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
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 movem...

icepicks december, hell or highwater

i wish you were here for days like thesebut you saw all the world gave you to seesomtimes life just slips awayso shed a tear for the deadremember the legacy they leftfor 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 all over...

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 finally ...

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 populationx amount of is a % of fans of the showx amount of people die yearlyx 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* violentset a tone it ...

Timing is everything. As cliché as that sounds, it’s true. Looking back on the 80s it’s harder to describe the rise and eventual fall of hair bands and the “copycat” syndrome. Almost any successful band had 2 things happen; the “brand” made a ton of money and the industry went into overdrive to do it again with another band. You like Night Ranger, we’re going to give you more Night Ranger, so to speak. But as a famous author once wrote – Nothing gold can stay. It was 1987 and in many ways, 80s music was at its climax and bands were being pushed out as quickly as they could be found. Howev...

ok - in before the 15th so i'm ahead of the game! sorry about missing my show last thursday but the flu was busy taking my ass out. i've coughed up a lot more than i've eaten so i do believe im on the road to recovery and today i actually have the energy to make gross analogies in my opening statements again. I STILL GOT IT!!! now - enough of me. while listening to our own stream i sometimes find bands all over again. while wondering who to tell you about this month i came across saint asonia and fell in love with the lyrics instantly. "Now I'm leaving MinnesotaWould have been nice to hav...
