I actually found out about this a couple of weeks ago, but I keep forgetting to post the info. Yes, my sister-in-law is pregnant! A big "Congratulations! I guess this means a very "Happy New Year" to them and the rest of the family! Other thoughts about this You've heard of the " Mozart effect ", right? I'm more in favor of the "Lennon effect" and I'm Austrian?! We'll start " Oasis " training at around age Yes, I'm a great baby-sitter!
Again, "Congratulations", I'll miss the discounted hair-care-products from Regis Corpthough!? Maybe I need some leather pants soon How will I ever co-ordinate all of you?! We'll all try to "hang" together Jan, where are you, by the way?
In music and related info today: Thanks to Rock Snob on this one her site is outstanding Not much a departure from their previous material, as far as I can tell, however sounds excellent! Plus, they still have the arguably hottest bass player alive in music today!
I still have an extra autographed poster by them laying around from last time I saw them here I'll have to think of some good trivia questions to give this one away soon here on the blog Again, related to above Paul on their upcoming tours!
I get a weekly email from local DJ "JakeRudh". His site of the week is: MNspeak. Pretty cool, I think You can check out the MNspeak inteview with Jake here. I've met Jake a number of times It's good to have local people like this around. Funny, in the MNspeak 7 questions inteview he names " Pulp " as one of his favorite gigs Come on, you didn't expect any less, right? JC rules! I still don't quite understand why Jake doesn't start his own blog instead of emailing a bunch of people I mean hundreds Then again, that's me I've been getting so much new music lately I can hardly keep up!
One piece of advice though Posted by Steve at PM 3 comments:. Wednesday, July 20, "Rockin' the suburbs", not too much longer Since I've given you quite a bit of music news and live show reviews here lately we'll change things up a little bit for today. Here's what's going on: For those of you in NYC!
You can also check pictures and video from their last gig on their website. I'm not even sure why I keep promoting these guys, the video from the Arlene's Grocery gig is 15 seconds of shite I picked up some new CD's last weekend. Yeah, I spent way too much money Let me know In more personal non-music news I've been going back-and-forth on this one However, I think I've decided to sell my house in the suburbs, late this summer or early fall!
It's just way too big for me like square feet on 3 floors. I'm so sick of home-improvement! I think 2. Plus, I'm not a suburban guy It's damn lonely and boring out here! We'll see where the road takes me next I'll keep you updated As promised last week here's my full interview with " Rock 'n' Roll Dog ", aka Ringo, from last week! I decided not to edit it any form as I hate the FCC What about Carl? In non-related new album news I've learned how to bark "Yellow" for future karaoke gigs!
What's this city "NYC" you keep talking about? Is that ouside of "New Brighton"? Posted by Steve at PM 2 comments:. Tuesday, July 19, NME photographer etc I swear, sometimes when I surf the web I don't know where I end up I can't even remember how I got to this site This guy is a professional music photographer for NME.
Make sure you check out his main gallerywhich is unbelievable! Absolutely brilliant I'm still working on my Summer Mix CD. It's taking a bit longer than expected I've got it narrowed down to about 50 tunes now, which is still way too many, as I don't feel like burning a triple CD for everybody. I suggest you watch them on Conan as Carson's show is almost un-watchable yes, it's that bad Make sure you check out all my links especially the other blogs on the right, for the latest in interesting music and sometimes not music news!
Posted by Steve at PM No comments:. I missed the set by " The Golden Republic " Things that stood out for me: These guys are very young. Hangin' with The Sights. Locals: There was some confusion about this earlier on today If Caesars will show up is anybody's guess, First Avenue - Mark Mallman - Rejects (CDr), as the lead singer has been battling throat problems as of late.
Full report to come later tonight or tomorrow. If you're going to the gig, stop by and say "Hi"! All ages. Website of the week. As you can see I have a new website of the week: PhotoBlogs. This site highlights the vast number of great photoblogs out there Check out some of the topamong others Wow, some of these photographs are amazing!
Some very talented people out there Posted by Steve at AM No comments:. Friday, July 15, In progress. I'm currently in "the studio" recording my summer mix CD s. More to come soon! If you don't check back, have a great weekend! Thursday, July 14, Scatter-brained. So, how's everybody's week going? By the time you read this it's probably Friday where First Avenue - Mark Mallman - Rejects (CDr) live! Bloody great, right? I'm totally "scatter-brained" this evening Now that's a shocker, right?!
One of my favorite bands "The Strokes" hit the road in October. Can't wait to hear what the new album is going to sound like Franz Ferdinand on their new album Can't wait to see these guys at ACL! They like MN's own Bob Dylan I'm adding " Stereogum " to my blog list! Bloody brilliant blog I still haven't "bumped" into her so far Come on "God", I don't wish for things a whole lot of things, right?
Please help me out on this one None of these are really my cup of tea except for the Eels and Violent Femmes so feel free to look up your own hyperlinks Drive local MN radio station welcomes the 10, lakes festival! Pretty lame if you ask me! Then again, sometimes it's "just about the party", I guess These guys were pretty big in the early 90's in the Twin Cities All I remember as I was in college is that they were really fucking loud! The name of the band is "priceless" any way you look at it, however Probably the only really great tune, was written by a certain Mr.
Chris M by Coldplay I'll probably go check them out Bob Mould, and lots of great stuff next week The Sights, Caesars etc Check it out! Curtesy of Filer-Magazine once again Kaiser Chiefs will be on Regis and Kelly It's pretty funny!
Yet, very good And they just added "Billy Corgan" from Webster Hall! Coldplay hit the big time! Seems like yesterday these guys were nobodies Rolling Stone.
I check this site just for you, readers! I really don't like this magazine and their website Speaking of the "shit rag" above there, I wasn't so nice on that one called " Rolling Stone " Now that's what I call art the album art-work! Don't do this at work however NYC, I shoud live there! Courtesy of the Village Voiceyou have this kick-ass free festival this weekend! When am I moving again?!
Local kids: Marshall Field's Day of Music is going on Get this Rob Zombie has a new movie out called " The Devil's Rejects " The advertisement says" This is the Terminator of horror films"! Enough said, I think Here's what's going on in other related or not so related stories : I just taped First Avenue - Mark Mallman - Rejects (CDr) interview with Ringo aka Rock n roll dog a couple of days ago.
From my annual "Christmas" email I can tell that people really like this I've been working on this for 6 weeks now Getting Ringo aka Rock n Roll Dog to quit barking so much! It's a new habit he's picked up Still working on Queenvick's website. I love Summer! I wish life could be like this 6 months a year Go out and enjoy Summer while you can! There's so much stuff I forgot I'll post tomorrow! Wednesday, July 13, OK Go.
Thanks to my friend DJMikeT for heads-up on this one Their closing routine, a choreographed dance-number to Dirty Vegas' "A Million Ways" was absolutely hilirious! Well, DJMikeT found the video online of them doing this It takes a little while to load, so be patient DJMikeT who should really join this blog also alerted me to this one. This is going to be a tough choice I don't want to see Oasis vs Coldplay anytime soon I'm happy as long as Kasabian shows up, however If you live anywhere close to Chicago, you should check out the " Intonation Music Festival " this weekend At least I would How weird is this?
So I change the description of my blog the line underneath "Rock 'n' Roll Star every time I post an entry This week I've totally been stuck on lyrics by Pulp Bloody brilliant, therefore I'll continue the "Pulp references" for the rest week This is related to music somehow Please help me boycott "Reality TV"!
Wow, this show is pretty bad, as Noel Gallagher would put it "absolutely fookin' 'orrible, gov'nor"!. Please everybody, quit watching reality TV! Once the ratings go down that will be the end For you people outside the US, you're quite lucky!
At least in Canada you can get the CBC! Tuesday, July 12, Show me some G-Love?! It's been a very slow news days here today, both personally, and on the rock n roll side. I guess everybody has to pay the bills Yes, of course I relates to Oasis! For those locals of you who can't get enough of MN festivals Pretty pathetic lineup music wise Mike Doughty would be the only one on my list I guess, Howie Day could be bearable should you be on the right "medication" You can check out new videos on NME for the following artists among others and songs at the moment.
Check out this local's blog. He just recently returned from the UK, and has first-hand accounts of the London terrorist attacks and the Oxegen festival in Ireland, in addition to a lot of other things Yes, he's also the editor of " howwastheshow. You can check out the pitchfork review here. Check the links on the right for details Last, but not least, Rock Snob had this story today Check out Tom Cruise's blog Yeah, it's fake Monday update So I wasted sooooo much time messing around with hyperlinks and other stuff on my site today, I apologize Website of the week: Robbie Williams!
I think he deserves it after his Live8 performance! Damn, I mentioned it again I could have done "Pink Floyd" but they're just kind of boring unless you're "high" I'll probably get a couple of comments for that one I didn't watch it, nor am I going to. However, here's an interesting thing Joan Jett said on the topic of "rock stars". You may have noticed that this blog is called "rock n roll star" Well, here's her opinion, "thoughts from Joan Jett" Franz Ferdinand hits the US again! You can check the full US tour schedule here.
I guess they've become popular! More to come Tuesday Monday, July 11, Weekend in review Hi kids, did everybody First Avenue - Mark Mallman - Rejects (CDr) a great weekend?!!! I did Great party, great food, great people. You can check out all the pictures here. Happy birthday again, Randy! I taped 9. If anybody local would like to borrow the tapes 2let me know Very addicting I watched all my HBO shows I did a bunch of home-improvement projects, some in extreme heat that means the weather was hot by the way.
I'm pretty sure nobody wants to hear about that though No rock n roll shows last weekend, sorry! Friday, July 08, Happy Birthday Randy! Happy Birthday to band-mate Randy pictured above!!! I'm looking forward to your BBQ birthday party tomorrow Yes also, he's the only member on this site currently who really was a rock 'n' roll star for a while She has some experience with this one as she's done the Boston event a couple of times Hopefully she'll grace us with a post about the event next week Not sure what band member Anglophiliac is up to this weekend.
I'm just happy to hear that his "rock 'n' roll cat" is doing better. Band member, Rock 'n' Roll Dog is currently busy wondering who "rock 'n' roll cat" is As for other interesting news: I've increased my presence on the world-wide-web!
You can now also access this site by going to www. It's a lot easier to refer people to this domain obviouslyso feel free to do so! Also, my sister site note, not my sister's First Avenue - Mark Mallman - Rejects (CDr) is www. This site will be used to post photo galleries, and things for my "normal" self, like my resume for example. That site is still under construction at the moment I've talked about Live8 probably too much on this site lately, so hopefully this will be the last of it.
In case you don't feel like sitting in front of the TV for 10 hours tomorrow It says on the site that it's "technically not illegal", however, I'm sure once AOL finds out about it, it will be gone at least that's my guess. So check it out while you still can I just downloaded "Bittersweet Symphony", absolutely brilliant Speaking of large time music events.
Check out the sites Too many great bands It would be a really tough descision to choose who to watch especially T in the park For all the latest from both events check out the NME festivals site. Of course I was too lazy to give a full review of the event!
Turns out they just recently played in NYC, Bowery Ballroom, filter magazine was kind enough to do a detailed review. The pictures I took at the show here are way better however Speaking of filter magazine I think I agree with this review. Again, I'm lazy, this way I don't have to post my own review The best rock n roll city in the world, ManchesterEngland, has a pretty cool site.
Check out the " round for dinner " poll Liam Gallagher is pretty popular, my choice would be Noel, however. Except for Pete and Kate of course! For those of you in the US. Coca Cola is currently airing commercials for " Coca Cola Zero ", I guess a new soft-drink of theirs haven't tried it.
Funny thing is Noel Gallagher, of Oasisopenly admitted he ripped off this tune to write "Shakermaker" on their classic debut album " Definitely Maybe ". Listen to it, you can definitely tell! Funny how I can use knowledge from 11 years ago sometimes, yet I can't remember much of yesterday Scheduled for next week I've got a good "website of the week" lined up, we'll get to "offical" welcomes of band members Anglophiliac and Randyblogger facts, and hopefully a lot of other goodies.
I know it's tough to believe that I would read an actual book Austin City Limits schedule grids are up. I'm also working on a press-pass for this event Just in MTV and VH1 will be re-airing 10 consecutive hours commerical free! I'll be taping over my tapes used last Saturday Unfortunately I'm currently still awake installing "Windows XP Service Pack 2" on one of my co-worker's PC's, which is totally messed up with spyware and viruses.
I figured I'd give you a few more updates: One of my all-time favorite actors Jennifer Connely is coming out with a new movie today, called " Dark Water ". Looks pretty scary, if any of you see it this weekend, let me know Yes, I'm still pretty angry she got married My girl Avril Lavigne got engaged!
To the lead singer of Sum Again, life goes on I guess Avril, cum on, you can't get married this early!? Don't you know you're supposed to marry an actor according to the rock n roll stereotype?
I watched a lot of coverage of the London terrorist attacks this evening. Last thing I want to do is turn this blog political, however Here are lyrics from somebody I think you know: Imagine there's no heaven, It's easy if you try, No hell below us, Above us only sky, Imagine all the people living for today Posted by Steve at AM 2 comments:. Thursday, July 07, Shadow Box - Live, etc To change things up a little bit I decided to do a post earlier in the day than I usually do. By the time I get home and get things organized I'm usually pretty brain dead.
For an example of this just see my post from yesterday Then again, they can't all be good Some random things for today: People of London, my thoughts are with you. I usually try to keep my swearing on this site to a minimum For those of you in NYC! Their first proper gig in NYC according to their website.

Wow, there's a lot of bands playing Check the official site for all details I updated a few links today, finally I haven't heard back from a bunch of you regarding joing the site as "official band members".
