Big Rig Dollhouse – The Moon

Big Rig Dollhouse. Say it with me; Big Rig Dollhouse. You instantly get nostalgic in a new way. Not because you’ve said it; but because you went out to listen to their music and that’s how it made you feel in all the good ways. I can hear a touch...

Review – Another Day Dawns – Stranger

Closing in on a year since my review of Another Day Dawns previous release, A Different Life, they’re back. Psycho, I believe, was the single from that release and set the tone of a hard rock band with grunge mixed in. Stranger, to release Jan 31st, picks up where A...

Radical Self Improvement is the Most Punk Rock Shit I’ve Ever Done

Before there was Black Flag, there was nothing. I knew nothing about the outside world beyond the shitty little town I grew up in with the shitty people that surrounded me in the shitty household I lived in. I was angry, but didn't know how to properly express the rage...

Elijah Newman & The SideEffects – Free Born EP

One of the most rewarding (but equally frustrating) parts of reviewing music for this site is that there's so many artists that deserve far more credit for their craft than what the mainstream publications are willing to offer. In a fair and just world, Elijah Newman & The SideEffects would...

Review – Ghost Hounds, Roses are Black

It happens. Every once in a while it happens. When it does, it’s an amazing feeling. In this case I’m simply talking about a band, or a particular song, that takes you back and brings the life out of today all at once. You just feel good and dive into...

Wrapping Up Dirty Honey, Alter Bridge, Skillet Tour

While we’ve been playing Dirty Honey, When I’m Gone, pretty much since it released, I’ve not had a chance to dig deeper. Seeing them live just didn't present itself yet. All that changed last Sunday (10/20/19) when they opened up for Alter Bridge and Skillet at the legendary Bomb Factory...

The Joker – A Haunting Reflection of Our Modern World

I went into this movie knowing fully well that The Joker is not the "typical comic book movie" Joaquin Phoenix goes all in with any role that he is set to play but I still tempered my expectations. Reasons for low expectations? 1. DC has put out bust after bust...

Singles Only – Kali Ra – “Breathless”

The Atom Age – Cry ‘Til You Die review

  If it's not broke, don't fix it. Many bands are content with treading familiar waters. This sound sells well. This is your sing along. Here's a slower variant of the songs you heard before. Rinse, repeat, send it to the presses. Punk rock is no stranger to this formula....

Jerry Hayes and Joey C Jones On Stage Together!

.

More than 20 years ago I ran into Joey C Jones looking for just 1 song. Since that time I’ve made a lifelong friend and have so many memories of seeing him live, and then just hanging out as friends. Trips to Ohio, live shows, and just hanging out watching sports on tv. What we never accomplished over all that time was my singing on stage with him. That was taken care of Dec 27th at the KNON Rock and Rebuild Show at Haltom City Theater.

Thank you Joey C Jones for a lifetime of friendship I never anticipated in looking for said 1 song.  🙂 We covered Slade When The Lights Are Down and thankfully some people got some shots of it so I can prove it happened.

Maybe next time we can get some rehearsal in, but with any luck at all there will certainly be many more “next times” to sing with you, Joey.

Introducing Christopher Mills

Lava Cantina, The Colony

Going out to see friends in the local Burning Sky Band at Lava Cantina last night, I always make it a point to get there to also see who else is playing. If I’m going to get out of the house, may as well take in all I can, right?

Last night I was introduced to the Christopher Mills band and I was hooked from the start.

Covering a wide range, I decided to put my Pentax down and fire up the Lumix and shoot a quick video. Audio sounded clean enough, I’m just not much of a videographer.  🙂

Caught him covering Chris Stapletons Broken Halos and forgive my shaky hand at times, but he sure does sound amazing. Need some music in our rotation soon!
