Saving Songs From Extinction: "Belly of the Whale" by Burning Sensations

Saving Songs From Extinction: "Belly of the Whale" by Burning Sensations
Spool Going Round is looking at songs that maybe never were played on the radio, or songs that were and then stopped.   If I don’t add new life to these songs they may become extinct.   We may never hear of them again.   So press play and tell a friend to listen as well.   I... Read more »

Spool Going Round Must See Show of April 2011: Peter Murphy at Reggies on 4/10

Spool Going Round Must See Show of April 2011: Peter Murphy at Reggies on 4/10
I have written about my attraction to music from an early age.  My nights spent in the back rooms of McGreevys or Medusas when I was too young to legally purchase Old Style.  The large video screens that would project the images that accompanied the Bauhaus classic “Bela Lugosi’s Dead,’  are deeply imprinted in my...

FXCK YUX SXSW: CHICAGO ROCKS! (and we have a bus tour to prove it)

FXCK YUX SXSW: CHICAGO ROCKS! (and we have a bus tour to prove it)
I don’t know about you but I am so tired of hearing about SXSW (South by Southwest).  Why anyone would go to Austin, Texas is beyond me.  Texas, as a state, is a place I have no desire to return to.  Attending overcrowded shows with a bunch of dicks. Hearing Bob Geldof bad-mouth American bands.... Read more »

The Anydays, from my Top 10 of 2010, are Back with a New Single "She's Not The One"
I was really excited last year when I stumbled across Oxford 3-piece, The Anydays.  Their album Collector remains in my mobile Mp3 player to this day.  It ended up at #8 on my Top 10 albums of 2010. The song “Here She Comes” is still one of my fav’s.  It is so much fun in... Read more »

More Fan Photos and Reviews from Dropkick Murphys/Naked Raygun Show
Photographed by Andrea Fashoda at Chicago’s Congress Theater I believe one thing that makes Naked Raygun such a hit with fans is their ability to let the fans participate.  The microphone is in the crowd just as much as it is in front of the singer’s mouth.  In their honor I would like to ask...

Arctic Monkeys Are Always Amazing! Back with "Brick by Brick"

Arctic Monkeys Are Always Amazing! Back with "Brick by Brick"
It has been so much fun watching the evolution of Arctic Monkeys.  I was right there when the first notes of their first song rang out in 2005 and I am still here and more intrigued than ever. The first album was so fresh and the lyrics were incredible. I used to crank Whatever People... Read more »

Interpol Speak: Watch The Mini-Documentary Here

Interpol Speak: Watch The Mini-Documentary Here
I mentioned in my recent review of the Chicago Interpol show that the boys don’t talk much.  You might get the occasional “Thank You,” but that is about all.  So when I was sent this documentary and you can see them talking a lot, it really is a pleasure.  They get to expound on their...
