Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – “Home”

(“Home” live on The Late Show with David Letterman ) It’s funny that it took a while for “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros to grow on me. I can’t believe that the first time I heard it I didn’t think that it was absolutely brilliant! Right now it’s my favorite song of all time. (Edward Sharpe […]

The Clash – “White Riot” Live in 1978

Wow! I just found this fantastic version of The Clash playing “White Riot” live in Victoria, Park London. It’s from the rockumentary/fictitious film entitled “Rude Boy,” which I haven’t seen in years and can’t remember.  ( The Clash in 1979. Photograph: Roger Ressmeyer) Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS

The National – “Blood Buzz Ohio”

  Brooklyn band the National has just released a new cd titled High Violet. It’s their fifth cd. The above song “Blood Buzz Ohio” is the one on YouTube getting the most air play so far. I have their last cd, Boxer, and will probably pick this one up, too. (The National – “High Violet” cd cover) […]

New Luna Park Construction & Cyclone Photos

(New Luna Park Construction – Photos by Joe) I took these photos today of the new Luna Park, which they hope to open in just under four weeks on Memorial Day.

“Ceremony” – New Order vs. Joy Division

 (Joy Division – “Ceremony”) I would image the above version of “Cermony” is the famed tape that was the bridge between Joy Division and New Order after Ian Curtis’ death. I think I had read how Bernard Sumner had to work to decipher the lyrics. Then New Order re-recorded the song. (New Order – “Ceremony”) The […]

Our Slavery did not begin with slave ships – Music Video

This is a fantastic video. Great images. Great song. I guess the music is a remix of Nas’ “If I Ruled The World.” The title of the documentary segment is “It Started With Slave Ships.” I think someone added the music and retitled the piece on YouTube as “Our Slavery did not begin with slave ships.” There is also […]

Air – “La Femme D’Argent” (Fantastic video from 1905)

  This is a track from Air’s Moon Safari cd called “La Femme D’Argent.” The city is not my beloved New York, so I can’t mention its name. Though Mark Twain said of it, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in ___ _________.”  Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS

Malcolm McLaren – ‘The Great Rock n Roll Swindler is Dead’

(“The Great Rock n Roll Swindle” from the movie of the same name) Today the famed Sex Pistol’s manager Malcolm McLaren died after a battle with cancer. He was 64 years old. This video was choosen because it best represents McLaren’s M.O. in musical terms. Please note that I do not approve in any way shape or […]

Phoenix – “1901” Live on Letterman

I really like the drumming on this song. I first heard it in a Cadillac commercial, which I kind of think most of America did. Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS
