LIVE REVIEW: Skaters, Philadelphia, PA

I’ll admit, prior to Monday night I had no idea who SKATERS were. Judging solely by the their internet presence I gleaned that they were they a band with a lot of personality, but I was totally unprepared for what I was about to experience. As I descended the sticker crusted, outdated poster clad stairwell into Philadelphia’s Underground Arts, I was amused by the crowd. Sure, there were your typical twenty-something’s in their Misfit shirts, but there were also middle aged men, a lady who easily could have been my…

VINTAGE PLAYLIST: 100 Punk Club Special

On September 20th-21, 1976, eight punk bands played a festival at 100 Club on Oxford Street in London, England.  This was at a time when punk was not only an underground music movement, but a movement that was relatively small. Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Vibrators are listed among the acts at what 100 Club still claims as the first punk festival ever.  You’ll notice most of the bands didn’t release their first albums until a year or two after the festival. Here is a link to the full…

There’s Very Little Difference Between A Clash Song And A Johnny Cash Song; A Conversation With Cory Branan

Infectious Magazine: Alright, so let’s start things off with a trip to the wayback machine. I’ve always wondered, there’s a pretty big difference between 12 Songs and Mutt. What happened to cause that difference and where does Cory Branan go from here? Cory Branan: Hmmm. I didn’t know there was that much a difference. There’s a bit of time. Mutt was recorded two and a half years before it even came out but that’s just business and trying to get things done. I guess they are dissimilar records, but they’re…

10 Songs To Keep You Warm This Winter

I initially made this list because January has already been a pretty rough month for basically everyone who lives above Florida with temperatures dropping way below zero degrees.  So, I wanted to shed some light on all the cold wind, inches of snow outside your door and just a general lack of heat. As I went through some of my favorite songs with sun, fire, or heat themes, I realized that the majority of them had a lot of political statements and commentaries.  So in the spirit of the up-and-coming…

ALBUM REVIEW: The Shondes ‘The Garden’

Recently, a few retro-ish artists have been popping up left and right. Some are hits…and some are misses. The Shondes give off the energy of a classic rock band like The Clash, fronted by powerful female vocals. Without hesitance or careful introduction, The Shondes launch into the cinematic, spectacular “The Garden.” Charmingly, almost alarmingly, poetic, the track starts the album off on a complete high. Please follow and like us:

ALBUM REVIEW: Human Parts

Puzzled; it’s the only way to explain the approach to listening to Human Parts’ self-titled release. Hesitant, unsure, and downright puzzled. But after a listen, the feeling melts away and gives way to a nostalgic one. Despite not having been born in the ’80s, I grew up on a variety of music, including lots from that era. As Human Parts played on, the familiarity hit like a cool wave on a scorching day. “First Impressions” certainly makes a startling one at that. Reminiscent of the 80’s-punk era, when The Clash…
