Unlikely Japan

Yes I know. Two Wilco posts in a row. Deal with it.

I came across this great previously unreleased Wilco track (featured as a B Side on the 7 inch single for "You Never Know) called "Unlikely Japan". I would call it an early version of "Impossible Germany" but really, this is a totally different song. Recorded in 2003, it is sort of the missing link between "A Ghost is Born" and "Sky Blue Sky". Enjoy.

Please support the band and buy it if you dig it!

Wilco at the Wiltern

It's no secret to folks who read this page that I'm a huge Wilco fan. Well the band is currently touring on the heels of their ridiculously good new album, "Wilco (The Album).

Here are some recent live clips of all the new songs I could find. The bonus being a guest appearance from Leslie Feist on the simply lovely track "You and I".

Enjoy and BUY the new album!

Obama Rethinks Plan for America

I usually try to stay clear of politics on this site, but this is too important to ignore!

Remember trying to be a happy music fan in the late 80's when that horrible "Talk Dirty to Me" song by Poison overtook the world? Remember when VH1 used to show good programming until that shitty "Date With Bret Michaels" (the guy from Poison) show took over? Well, karma is a bitch Bret!!

This clip is from the Tony Awards last night which for some reason, Poison was asked to perform at. Classic stuff!!!

Love and Rockets

When defending the cause that the 80's did indeed produce some great music, I always cite Love and Rockets as an example. And it isn't just that fact that they had the perfect mix of Goth and Pop, it's that their songs are fantastic.

There is no greater proof of this than the soon to be released Love and Rockets tribute cd. The disc will contain tracks by Frank Black, Flaming Lips, The Dandy Warhols, and a host of others. You can listen to a bunch of great tracks at this My Space page. The amazing thing is that although I havent't heard of most of these bands, it doesn't matter because the original songs are so great. Put on some black eyeliner and give it a listen!

You Can't Always Get What You Want

Too much product, not enough money.

Remember the simple old days when your only music decisions were 8-track, cassette, or vinyl? Not anymore! This is a truly amazing (and expensive) time to be a music fan. Not only do we have a wealth of great new CD releases this year, but now we have the newly released Neil Young Archives Vol.1 (list price for Blu-Ray version=$349.99), the upcoming Beatles CD remasters, and the looks freaking awesome Beatles Rock Band game.

All of these are must haves for me, except for the fact that I don't have a spare $1000.00 laying around. Either way, all of these items look simply amazing. Check them out below. My pennies are saving now.

Pearl Jam Rock Conan

If you're like me and missed the first Tonight Show with Conon O'Brien last night (past my bed time), you missed Pearl Jam kicking all kinds of ass. They played a killer new song from their forthcoming album "Backspacer". I'm not sure exactly what the song title is, but I'm just happy it's so good!
