Tangled

Hands down my favorite song that refers to mathematicians in a cool cover version I'd never heard until now.

For the First Time in 17 Years...

New music from Squeeze!

Here's hoping the album has some real rockers and not just the endless mid-tempo stuff that characterized most of their output from the late 80s and 90s...

It Was 35 Years Ago Today

Holy hell, this is great.

Try to ignore the logo on the video, listen to the power (and dig that weird looking guitar)!

With Cheap Trick, who were fired when they asked to be paid for the sessions.

Ten Years After

A reunion tour.

Ten years later.

Singing the same political songs.

But it's ten years later.

Everyone's older.

Stuff changed.

And why not? Ten years went by.

So you can't sing the old songs the old way with the old words.

And maybe, being older, the new words make more sense. Resonate more.

And maybe, just maybe, it's even better than the original.

Preacher Like the Cold

Please Enjoy

Here's Barry McGuire singing "California Dreaming."



If it sounds familiar, that's because producer Lou Adler used the exact same backing track for the Mamas & Papas version, just wiping McGuire's lead vocal and slotting in Danny Doherty. Because efficiency.

Sometimes the wrong version of a song becomes a hit... but not this time!

Make It Easy

Every Second Is A Second Chance To Get This Right...

Missed this when it first came out...
