Just wanted to apologize for being so harsh on Def Lep for their lyrics. After I posted, I realized they've never exactly been known for brilliant lyrics. And I never had a problem with it before. Hell, its part of their charm - their nonsensical, stream of conscious Mutt Lange (never been exactly a lyrical genius either) inspired lyrics :-) Its probably just a "bad habit" Mutt infl

Its a great album, "silly" Goonies inspired album cover or not. Discussion about it definitely belongs on this site, as they definitely fall in the "melodic rock" spectrum, whether they're a band Andrew chooses to cover or not. Shouldn't dismiss it without at least listening to a song. But whatever. Your loss, D U D E. Btw: Is that how Stryper's writing their name these

Uh...WTF? Just clicked on the link again to check and it goes straight to the M A R I A N A S T R E N C H - A S T O R I A stream, so I'm not sure why you thought it would take you to the Stryper album. Scratching my head over that one for sure. Can anyone else figure out what he's trying to say? Trolling for the band Stryper? An awkward attempt to slam the band I'm posting about by me

No "new country" artist recommendations for me? Really? I guess I did write a lot, so maybe y'all pardners didn't see it ;-) To reiterate: Really like Paul Laine's DarkHorse album and Bon Jovi's Lost Highway CD. So would love recommendations in that vein. Darius Rucker's country stuff - not so much. A little "safe" for me, sounds like he's trying to play the politics gam

You can stream the new Marianas Trench album Astoria (out Oct 23rd) here: Marianas Trench - Astoria album stream Unfortunately its not broken out by song, so that's a little inconvenient. Just one long stream. However, if you really want to hear the album "properly"...lets just say its out there if you know where to look ;-) I'm loving this album. Can't stop listening to it.

I know I didn't think so at the time, when I was a kid and all those bands were big, but these days, looking back, its kind of ridiculous to call most of those bands "metal" lol Hair or otherwise. Bon Jovi metal? Really? So when I read comments on Youtube vids saying things like "music today sucks, where's the real metal bands like Bon Jovi, etc", the degree of pandering a

Thanks for letting me know about The Defiants project :-) Didn't know about them before, but it definitely sounds like something I'll be looking forward to! Four the Hard Way is great. That version of "Coming Home" is the version I heard first, as while I was around "back in the day" when D2 broke into the mainstream, and while I liked "Naughty Naughty" and love

I'm excited, too. Great review by Andrew. I was lukewarm about "Let's Go". Since it was definitely a "Sugar" retread musically, which I'm fine with ("Sugar" was their current single when I first got into the band btw), but those lyrics... Ugh. Not sure how important lyrics are to most Lep fans, but a little more thought and depth would be nice lol Those type of

A little late to the party (as usual), but I found out about their "new" (released in Aug) CD Next recently, and am really enjoying it. Maybe not quite up to their usual standard of pop-rock excellence, and way shorter than their usual output at only 10 tracks (not 20 this time lol), but that first track "Time of Our Lives" is phenomenal. Golden, even ;-) Definitely a Song

I seem to be one of the few dudes who liked these guys back in the day lol They were young, but I was too, so I guess I liked that about them. Never cared too much about their heaviness or lack thereof. I went thru a brief heavy period in my youth, I think most of us go thru phases trying to figure out our music taste. Probably thought I was a headbanger just because Def Lep was on Headbanger

Then again I listen to Morrissey and The Smiths (who were mentioned in the book Trainspotting), who'd make most of ya wee doss radge c*nts shite a brick if you saw him live or had to listen to his tunes anywhere, so what do I know? :-P Oh, and I'm half Scottish, so I'm allowed to say this shite, likesay ken?

As someone who's a big fan of both and has seen neither live - what an awesome bill. If anyone here attends that show, consider me envious. Must be a dream come true for Waltham as well (unless they've already played with him). PS - Has Andrew ever tried to get Waltham to play Melodic Rock Fest? Considering he's such a big fan, just curious. Though I'm not sure how far they travel to play

All that said (in my post above), doesn't excuse the Brothers Gallagher from being cunts sometimes, though. Just like anyone that rips on Ed for BS reasons is a bloody cunt in my book. Hey, no offense intended...just read...er, interpreted the Scottish novel Trainspotting (loved the movie for years) and all that slang and dialect is still stuck in my head :-) So I can't be held responsible

Agreed...he's not my normal cup of tea and I admit it was a teen who got me into him, but at least Ed seems like a true musician who writes/plays/sings his own songs. And I don't care what anyone says - "Lego House" is a bloody brilliant pop song. So catchy. Maybe its just that human nature thing of people hating anything that's popular or that the "kids" seem to like t

Thanks, Tony. But yeah, that's the same search stuff that came up for me before I made my topic. I see a post from Nick saying how awesome they are, but that's about it...everyone else were mostly just saying how they ordered the CD and were waiting for it to come ::shrugs::

Hey, could you link me to some of those old topics here about The Radio Sun? Its not that I don't believe you, so apologies if it came out that way, but when I searched the Noticeboard archives, like I said, I really couldn't find much :-/ Read your interview with Steve - very cool. Cool to see he's such a big Paul Laine fan. As I mentioned before, he and I really do seem to have very simil

Thanks for the reply. Though...yeah, before I posted my topic, I checked the Noticeboard archives for other topics and didn't find much. I think one topic started by a guy who'd ordered his CD and was waiting to receive it, asking Andrew if it had shipped yet or something like that, but not much else. Maybe I didn't try the right search criteria, but I didn't know what else to try besides &quo

Surprised to not see more topics on these guys, since they're signed to Andrew's label. Great Aussie melodic rock/power pop. Debut album Wrong Things Right picks up right where previous band Square One left off musically. Possibly even catchier, great hooks. Lyrics are a little more direct than Square One, less abstract, stream of consciousness quirkiness (which I kinda liked, but oh well).

Yeah, I mentioned in my first post about Noelle's solo electro career. Didn't realize The Organ Beats (you meant them, not Damone, right?) had broken up. That sucks, since I really enjoyed their Goldenheart album...such a step up in terms of songwriting and production from the first one. Noelle's solo work isn't quite there either IMO, for the most part, though "Waiting For October"

Yeah, the 2nd Damone album was great. I liked their other 2 albums as well, though the first definitely had a different style. More power pop, but I liked it. Sounded a bit like the band Waltham (big surprise, since Frank Pino was in both lol). Anyway, I was kicking myself after my original Organ Beats post since I forgot to post any Damone songs for the people who might not have heard abou

Interesting to hear that more than one of you kind of stopped listening after When All That's Left is You and are just now giving them another chance (glad I could help!). Since as I said above, the one thing I can say most about them is they've been incredibly consistent throughout their career. New album every couple years, each one with almost no filler...its criminal they're not bigger than

From Waltham...same place as a certain other band that gets talked about around here ;-) Female fronted rock band featuring Noelle, formerly of Damone. Damone was a band founded by Dave Pino, who also co-founded the band Waltham. Still with me? lol The Organ Beats' latest studio al

Quietdrive recently released their latest album, The Ghost of What You Used To Be. I've seen posts about them here in the past...not sure if any of you still follow them, but just in case, figured I'd post about them here. The album actually leaked this past summer (or that's when I found out about it), since it was released in Japan back then with a different track listing. The US version

Got into this NYC Power Pop singer-songwriter earlier this year. Best known for his work in indie films such as Happiness, American Splendor, and The Tao of Steve (title tracks for each and more). He and indie filmmaker Todd Solondz (Happiness, Dark Horse, Welcome to the Dollhouse) seem to be pretty tight, as Eytan's always personally thanked in the end credits and he even has a cameo in Happin

Brian was also in an alt country/power pop band called The Keepers. Was trying to think of their name when I made my original post, to maybe link some of their music too, but it eluded me. Oh well, better late than never. Think of them as FOW meets Wilco's more commercial side. Don't think they ever had an official release either, but "Baby Tonight" is catchy as hell, demo or not:
