While on leave from Iraq—just putzing about with my brother, sharing a few beers and watching New York Noise (a local music program)—a video for a unknown band started to play. The band: O’Death. The album: Head Home. The song: “Down to Rest.” The intro to the song was quite simple (just a couple of chords, slightly haunting and repetitious). The vocals…. my God, how raw! The video itself… so odd an unprecedented. All in all, it was just a scant 3:42 seconds.
This week we talk about new music videos, new music from Green Day, how some musicians are pompous, an album review of You Can’t Take It with You by As Tall As Lions, and then we discuss music in marketing campaigns. Also I want to thank the Wall Street Playaz for letting us use “Livin’ The Life” as our theme music.
Saw the Wall Street Playaz perform last night. It was fantastic! Here is a shot of me and the guys from the podcast with them before they played. For more photos go to facebook.com/crashchords.
Looking for something to do on a Friday the 13th? You say you want to see a band that dresses as zombies and covers songs about the undead, werewolves, and blood, there’s a band for that. Zombies + Rock and Roll + High Energy Fun = The Flesh Junkies.
The boys of Matchbox Twenty have done it again. “She’s So Mean” is the first single from their new album North due out in September. The formula for a great Matchbox Twenty song is here.
This week we talk about the world’s largest drumsticks, a review of Cage The Elephant’s latest, Thank You, Happy Birthday, and then get up close and personal with the Wall Street Playaz. Enjoy!
Hey guys and gals! It’s our first podcast. We talk new Linkin Park, technology, its effects on the music industry, music in general, and much more!
This isn’t some story about how Eve 6 collectively saved me from a burning building or anything. It’s about how a band I’ve loved since the late 90’s have gotten me through when things have been both at their worst and at their best. I remember it like it was yesterday the day I first heard them. It was back in high school. I remember sitting at home bored one day after school and I was flipping channels on my T.V. It was a time when MTV meant music television and they actually play music videos on t.v. I was flipping and I stopped on MTV just as the video for “Inside Out” started playing.
Back in November I had the pleasure of being on hand for the video shoot of the Wall Street Playaz new single “The Bear” from their record The Prospectus EP. It was a hectic and fun one day shoot that took us all over from the wooded back roads of Staten Island to New York City and Wall Street itself. The video was Shot and Directed by Geoff Celis.
I had the wonderful pleasure of sitting down with Schäffer the Darklord recently for an interview. He is truly a sweet, nerdy, and down to earth guy and we got to talk for quite some time about many different things and I discover as a fan myself that we had a lot in common from music to video game to movies and more. I am very thankful that he took the time out to meet with me and talk. I hope you guys enjoy reading this at much as I did doing it. Enjoy!
