Video of The Day #349: Queens of The Stone Age

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

“Feel Good Hit of The Summer” was my first exposure to the up-to-no-goodness of Queens of The Stone Age. I heard the song thanks to one of those CDs British music mags used to give out, and I was floored by the black magic, debauched irresistibility of this unrelenting mess of full-on rock. The video fits just right, cartoonish hallucinations causing havoc. Since the ...

An Interview With Paul Draper (Part the Third)

An Interview With Paul Draper (Part the Third)

To recap, we head into the third installment of the interview with Paul Draper having talked about his debut record Spooky Action, hatching a plan for conquering America, Six‘s impending 20th anniversary, Mansun conventions and cover bands, and a bit more besides. 

But wait, there’s more.

The importance of good fan relations (and Alsatians)? Yes. Things that are currently lighting up Draper’s Spotify playlist? Of course. Some of his choices may well surprise you. A Mansun biopic? Why not? 

This was probably the silliest bit of our lengthy conversation, and I confess to having edited out some of the ...

Get the Rockin Pneumonia

I love rock and roll piano, especially that classic boogie-woogie sound. I also love that Daryl Davis landed here. Daryl is one of DC’s best bad ass piano players, and the only person I know who owns a collection of Klu Klux Klan formal wear. For many years now,  Daryl has been on a remarkable one man mission to understand racists by befriending white men wearing hoods. (That is when he wasn’t playing keys with Chuck Berry.) Check out Daryl’s crazy amazing story here.

This Saturday Daryl will be hosting  Chuck Berry’s Birthday Party at one of the ...

Video of The Day #348: Death From Above

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

Things I never expected to see in a Death From Above video: a white Pomeranian, a Rick James wig, and overenthusiastic bodybuilders. Things in the Death From Above video for “Freeze Me”: a white Pomeranian, a Rick James wig, and overenthusiastic bodybuilders. This little slice of visual surreality fits well with the song, yet another fit of howling, feral ferocity from one of my ...

Good Cover Version: Primal Scream Does Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra

Good Cover Version: Primal Scream Does Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

Evil Heat is perhaps not everyone’s favorite Primal Scream record, but something about that post-apocalyptic, debauched devil disco music speaks to me. It was on this particular record that Bobby Gillespie chose to include a cover of a song made famous by the dreamy duo of Lee Hazlewood  and Nancy Sinatra. ...

An Interview With Paul Draper (Part the Second)

When we left off, Paul Draper was detailing his plan for certain American domination by way of playing “Wide Open Space” all over the country until the US of A waved the white flag and relented enough to rerelease debut Mansun record Attack of The Grey Lantern. This after also letting me in on his, ahem, chart battle royale with actress/pop singer Martine McCutcheon.

So what’s next, you’re wondering? Plenty. Read on to see how Draper plans on celebrating a rather special upcoming anniversary, and for his take on all things Mansun Con.  


And there’s still more ...

Video of The Day #347: The Birds of Night

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

For any number of reasons, the state of Texas is home to quite a concentration of rather good psych rock bands. New on my Lone Star love list is Denton’s The Birds of Night, who appeared to me today like the sweetest visage of an oasis in the driest of desolate deserts. I’m a willing Alice when it comes to the rabbithole that is ...

An Interview With Paul Draper (Part the First)

It was a somewhat sunny afternoon in late September when I sat down with Paul Draper at an undisclosed location (i.e. a pub) somewhere deep in the well-heeled, flyover London suburbs. Draper, fresh off a successful short run of live dates in support of his solo record and a birthday just a couple days earlier, was in fine form. He’s come a long way since his days at the helm of captivating anti-Britpop band Mansun, a too-brief ride that hit critical highs (and lows) and ended with a rather acrimonious split. Draper’s return to performing his own material has made ...

Video of The Day #346: Phoenix

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

The delightful Phoenix is in DC tonight, so let’s celebrate this French connection by watching their new clip for the suggestive hip-shaker “Ti Amo.” Obviously I’m a sucker for vintage film footage, especially when you add smooching and impressive scenery. If you’re heading to the show tonight at the Anthem, you’re a lucky duck indeed and in for a hell of a show.

Video of The Day #345: Amen Dunes

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

Sometimes I forget just how much I love the Amen Dunes record Love. It’s a masterwork of lo-fi magnetism and penetrating intensity, and “Splits Are Parted” is one of several favorite songs from that gorgeous album (see also: “Lonely Richard,” “Everybody is Crazy,” “I Can’t Dig It,” and “Love”). The video for “Splits Are Parted” is electric in its simplicity, visually startling without ...
