NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS – WHO BUILT...

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH...

Noel Gallagher kicked off his Oasis past like a wet nappy and ran, bare-bottomed and vulnerable into a solo career that frankly could have gone either way. Now however, the entire human race must surely thank him for his bold decision as this latest album delivers a squadron of tunes so epic they transcend even the dizzy heights of his previous high-flying solo work. Get out of the doldrums motherfuckers and strap in… Noel Edward Montague Gallagher entered the national consciousness in 1994; the same year as Forrest Gump, the sitcom Friends and the Channel Tunnel. Yet, 23 years later, Noel has evolved musically far more than those other three things put together. We all know the story of the boy from Burnley, with his mop-topped swagger, tracksuit and eyebrows Moses himself couldn’t part. The humble beginnings, touring the world with Allied Carpets and the younger brother now tolerated simply as a potential organ donor ...

JOHN COLTRANE – CHASING TRANE

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

JOHN COLTRANE – CHASING...

In a film Variety called an “elegantly crafted and illuminating portrait of the singular jazz legend,” director John Scheinfeld explores the life, spiritual journey and unmistakable music of John Coltrane, whose recorded works range from deeply expressive ballads to wildly expressive “sheets of sound.” Scheinfeld crafts a story that reveals and affirms the impact Trane had on a variety of musicians, politicians, educators and artists — including President Bill Clinton, Kamasi Washington, Common, The Doors’ John Densmore, Dr. Cornel West, Yasuhiro Fujioka, and many others. And because the saxophonist did few recorded interviews, the words of John Coltrane are spoken by Denzel Washington. In addition to one‐of‐a‐kind interviews, featured in the main film are never‐before‐seen home movies and photographs; rare TV performances from Europe and America, including one of the few occasions when Coltrane and his classic quartet performed his masterwork, “A Love Supreme,” live in concert; never‐before‐seen documents from Coltrane’s U.S. Navy file; and much more.

TEENAGE HEAD – FUN COMES...

Teenage Head formed in Hamilton, Ontario in 1975 by Frankie Venom, Gord Lewis, Steve Mahon and Nick Stipanitz. Fronted by the charismatic Venom, the band’s live shows became infamous for inciting apocalyptic reaction from audiences across the country. Their 1978 show at The Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto ended in a riot, captured in the documentary film, The Last Pogo. In 1978 the band’s first single, “Picture My face,” hit the streets followed a year later by self-titled debut album. In 1980, Teenage Head released their breakthrough album, Frantic City, that produced the hits “Let’s Shake” and “Somethin’ On My Mind.” In total, Teenage Head have released eight studio albums and one live record. “Back in the seventies, when Nick, Gord, Frank and myself decided to try and form a rock group, we had no idea what lay ahead. All we knew was what we loved, and that was loud, in your face ...

Trivia Q & A # 46 –...

Q. The Canadian pianist, Frank Mills, born June 27, 1942, had several successful instrumental numbers that made it to both the Canadian music charts and the U.S. Billboard charts. What was the title for his most famous piece of music? A. Music Box Dancer - He won a Juno in 1980 for his bouncy piano tune, "Peter Piper", but it was "Music Box Dancer" that not only out sold "Peter Piper", but also went higher on both the afore mentioned charts and stayed there longer. The internationally acclaimed Mills, would probably never have had "Music Box Dancer" recognized had his new record label not sent a copy of it by accident to pop-station CFRA-AM in Ottawa. After playing the A-side, the DJ couldn't understand why they had sent the record to his station, but decided to try playing the B-side which had "Music Box Dancer" on it. The rest is history. Frank ...

GRETA VAN FLEET – FROM THE FIRES

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

GRETA VAN FLEET – FROM...

Greta Van Fleet are a quartet of good‐looking millennial guys who are out of step with their era: they're unapologetic throwbacks to the golden era of classic rock ‐‐specifically, the golden era of Led Zeppelin. Raised on rock in the Michigan city of Frankenmuth ‐‐ a small town known as "Little Bavaria" and best‐known for Bronner's Christmas Wonderland, a Christmas paradise that's open year round ‐‐ the brothers Kiska (twins Josh, vocals and Jake, guitar, plus younger Sam, bass) formed the band in 2012 with drummer Kyle Hauck, who was swapped out for Daniel Wagner in 2013. Early in 2014, they recorded a live EP ‐‐ aptly titled Greta Van Fleet: Live in Detroit ‐‐and soon their original "Standing On" appeared in a Detroit ad for the Chevy Equinox. Soon, the group was signed to Lava Records by Jason Flom and the label pushed "Highway Tune" in early 2017, landing it on the Showtime series Shameless and using it ...
