Ric Ocasek was a brilliant lyricist, composer, producer and frontman. "One of a kind" is probably a phrase that is commonly overused, but in this case it definitely applies. In my opinion his solo works rival his output with the Cars... Beatitude... "Something To Grab For"..."A Quick One" This Side Of Paradise... "Coming For You"..."This Side Of

I mentioned the newly discovered band "New World Natives" a few weeks ago... https://youtu.be/Sap9PcxZKgU "Call Of The Void" https://youtu.be/8xvTZHtbSsY "Not Entirely Evil" Both songs are now available on most digital platforms, including US iTunes. I believe an EP or album is on the way. This is a local band that opened for King's X and greatly impre

Check out his “old” band, “Comes With The Fall” ... actually in my opinion better than anything he has done with AIC. Also... more recently, he sang, wrote and played some guitar in the band “Giraffe Tongue Orchestra”. Expect to be surprised...

https://youtu.be/Sap9PcxZKgU https://youtu.be/8xvTZHtbSsY Thoughts? There are a lot of influences there, filtered through a bold and talented new band. I like it a lot.

Opinions vary..... but mine is that they are one of the most underrated bands in rock... the first four albums were very much under the influence of the producer at the time...Dogman onward they expanded, expounded, experimented and continued to grow as artists, writers and musicians... what more can one want from a band? The vocals may be an acquired taste, but those that get it, do, and those t

It may have been previously mentioned on here, didn't check back too far.... If you are or ever were a fan of the band, the new album is just brilliant songwriting and musicianship. Hadn't purchased the last few albums, but this is a masterpiece. It also runs just over 30 minutes. No filler...with guitar solos! Open you ears for tracks...3,4,6,7,9 *It has been mentioned on here previousl

Does anyone have an email or contact info for an artist named Koot? (Rod Chambers) He did the Freak Of Nature album covers, The Almighty and a few others. I’ve been thinking about getting a Freak Of Nature tattoo and wondered if he might have any unreleased FON art. There seems to be very little info online.

Do you have the audio for the Japan show or the actual dvd? I have the 3 disc set. A few demos and acoustic tracks are on the “Outcasts” disc.

I saw Mike Tramp last week on his acoustic tour. It was an excellent show. Stories and jokes between songs, a great evening. I picked up his box set at the show and just listened to the demos for the first Freak Of Nature cd today. I forgot how much I liked that band. The demos and band just sound so powerful. Does anyone have any other demos or live audio? I know there was a Live In Japan 1993

Anyone get this box set? The $100 price has kept me from getting it. If anyone has it, I was wondering about the sound quality of the Freak Of Nature demos. Any good?

The company emailed me back. Apparently the weight of one of the cd's was listed wrong in their system, causing a ridiculously high shipping charge. Its been fixed and shipping 3 cd's to the US now costs $25.00.

I emailed the company but have yet to get a reply. bandshirts.com.au is the company, I tried to order the cd's again this morning and the $161.00 shipping is 5 day insured but the only other shipping option is $166.oo. Doesn't make any sense...

AMAZING! There is no doubt that this "version" of Candlebox is a band reborn. Nine out of the eleven tracks connected immediately, with at least seven of those being some of the band and Kevin Martin's best songwriting to date. The album has passion, emotion, angst, heartbreak, political and social commentary and swagger to spare... all wrapped up in memorable hooks and unforgettable

The show, while not stellar, was still delivered with passion and above average musicianship. I was in attendance at the same venu back in 1993, when Candlebox opened for Living Colour on their Stain tour. The only slight issue I had was with the audio. The vocals, drums and bass, were clear to my ears... but the guitar duo were not as "in front" in the mix as I would have preferred

Even as I type this I know it's the wrong thing to do, but I'm going to do it any way... one time and one time only. (that means respond to negative/critical comments or perhaps it is just a misunderstanding) What you are about to read below is directed at only a select few... The problem with texting and posting on message boards is that the reader is unable to discern the writers tone.

I would like to first "publicly" thank Andrew for the website he has created and this noticeboard he has "maintained". I have read the site and noticeboard for years and it inspired me. Isn't that what great music, art, poetry, film, and life is supposed to do... inspire? I will be launching a website in the next few weeks. The site will contain lengthy career spa

Just recently "rediscovered" the band Big Wreck and lead vocalist Ian Thornley. I knew I was a fan of a few songs, but had no idea about his "Solo" band Thornley and that he has an almost 20 year musical history. It was super exciting to have seven albums worth of "newly" discovered material to bounce back and forth between over the past few weeks. I would recomme

I believe Klett is out of the band, both recording and touring.(Lotus Crush) Scott Mercado is also out. (Touring w/Geoff Tate Band) The current touring band is Kevin Martin, Adam Kury, Mike Leslie, Brian Quinn, and Dave Krusen. I'm pretty sure these five are on the new album, with the possible addition of Sean "Memphis" Hennesy on some guitars.(Maybe) We won't really know f
