Steve Earle and the Dukes ‘Terraplane’

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#954 in the series) is Steve Earle and the Dukes, Terraplane. Steve Earle’s new album Terraplane is being billed as his blues album. We’ll talk about that a bit more in a minute. More importantly I think – it’s a Steve Earle and the Dukes album, and a damn fine one at that.  Steve Earle has had many different personas and approaches in his career, Country rock and roller, hard core troubadour, singer songwriter, bluegrass musician, political activist, you name it  – but mostly I think the best name to fit him – if he even needs one – is a folk singer.  And if you don’t think folk singers can play or sing the blues then you...

George Harrison Memorial Tree Killed By …. Beetles.

Posted 22 Jul 2014 in Uncategorized

(From the LA Times.Photo by Friedman. Report by Randy Lewis) In the truth is stranger than fiction department, Los Angeles Councilman Tom LaBonge, whose district includes Griffith Park, told Pop & Hiss over the weekend that the pine tree planted in 2004 near Griffith Observatory in memory of George Harrison will be replanted shortly because the original tree died as the result of an insect infestation. Yes, the George Harrison Tree was killed by beetles. Except for the loss of tree life, Harrison likely would have been amused at the irony. He once said his biggest break in life was getting into the Beatles; his second biggest was getting out. The sapling went in, unobtrusively, near the observatory with...

Angel City “Face to Face”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#943 in the Series) is Angel City, Face to Face. When locating the epicenters of rock and roll, music fans instinctively fixate on New York, California, London, and (maybe) Manchester, England. Very few look down under to Australia. How could people overlook the home of AC/DC, Midnight Oil, The Saints, Triffids, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Hoodoo Gurus, The Church, and Birthday Party? For a nation of less that 23 million people, this is quite an impressive output of quality bands. For me, though, Angel City, also known as the Angels, ranks with any band from any place. Formed in 1974 in Adelaide, Angel City is a no frills kick you in...

…From prog-sphere.com David Gilmour is currently in the studio working on a new solo album. Gilmour’s wife, Polly Samson, recently posted an Instagram photo from the sessions, featuring the Pink Floyd guitarist recording with his backup singers. Graham Nash originally leaked news of Gilmour’s album last November, when he revealed that he and David Crosby were going to contribute vocals to the project. “What the hell would it cost you to have David Crosby and Graham Nash getting on a bloody train to Brighton to sing with you?,” said Nash on Vintage TV’s Needle Time program. “We’re musicians. We love good songs. We’ll sing them until we are dead.” Gilmour’s last studio album was 2006’s On An Island. He released Live In Gdansk in 2008 and collaborated with ambient techno group The Orb in 2010 for...

I’ve had my jukebox (or as I like to call it “the prehistoric iPod”) for a little over twelve years and in that time I’d like to think that I’ve perfected the mix of 45s within. Today’s song was written by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich under the name The Raindrops, in twenty minutes as a quickie B-side to the 1963 single “That Boy John.” Jeff Barry: “As far as I...

I’ve had my jukebox (or as I like to call it “the prehistoric iPod”) for a little over twelve years and in that time I’d like to think that I’ve perfected the mix of 45s within. Call him “Shaft”…call him “Black Moses”…call him “Chef”…but one thing is for sure, he was responsible for some of the funkiest and smoothest hot-buttered soul ever committed to wax. Today’s Song Of The Day inhabits the E1/F1 position in my jukebox...
