He produced the first New York Dolls Record, he still has all of his hair and hes still alive after 50 years in the music business, that should count for something. The Hall of Fame is a joke, John Lydon had the right attitude, "we're not coming, we're not your monkey and so what?" I think that perhaps the piss stain comparison is still pretty spot on as well. While Todd's music is not for me, I still gotta give him some mad respect for producing that first Dolls album that many of us still love, he gave us David Johansson singing Bo Diddley's Pills, now that is a real classic. Jesus, wish I didn't read this article because now all night and traveling all day tomorrow I'll be singing "Through my head, through my head".
This was a great show from a highly underrated artist. His solo work is impressive both musically and lyrically, and I recommend a spin around his web site or his youtube channel for some great footage of performances and insight into his new album, "New Year People".
There's nothing sadder than an aging punk who's still mad about that one time the cops told him not to skate in front of the library.
Modern American punk is built on the phrase skateboarding is not a crime and nothing else.
There is no philosophy against the government, organized religion, or Pink Fucking Floyd.
It's all just, this cop harassed me one time and watch me shoot this ball of snot out of my nose.
No truer words were ever spoken.
"...I don't even know what it means to be a punk band in 2016."
It means being completely beholden to exactly the sort of conservative, idol-worshiping bullshit that punk rock was supposed to stand in opposition to.
He ain't wrong about the Hall of Fame being a joke, though. http://www.lettersofnote.com/2010/09/rock-…
How is he not in the Hall of Fame? Listen to his catalog - formulaic pablum. From Nazz forward all he's done is ride someone else's shirt tails.
I feel like these spammers could use some Jucifer in their lives.
^What? Huh? I can't hear you. I've already seen them a few years ago and still have not recovered any hearing in my left ear. They slay it and their name cracks me up. O.J. (Juice) Simpson and Lucifer = Jucifer.
Take earplugs if you go to this show.
Awesome spot and even better idea! Go support this place, I found a lot of gems for $3
Neil Young tribute at CMH and Whiskeytown tribute at PoHo! Great night of music for ChuckTown.
I'll be damb ! May I please have
your autographed CD 🎵 Amazing !
Just discovered these two talented young people.....they both sound so grounded and that's so refreshing from the "biebers" of the world....I hope they stay together...both talented but their style together is fantastic....I love Eva's style....she seems like such a sweet young lady with just enough little "imp" in her....maybe something a kin to the Carpenteurs. (sp) (I just hope they don't go in that direction personally)
@Vincent Harris, good call on The Mavericks! "What am I Supposed to Do?" might be my favorite song of 2015. What a groove and hook!
Heard their cover for the first time today, and listened to it again and again.
The voices, the tempo and above all the sweet harmonica solo at the end make it better than the original. Chapeau, guys, carry on! Love from Switzerland!
Nice facility, tape can be the greatest depending on the music. I mean you waste your time with hip hop, but jazz, blues, swing, love analog. kudos guys! I'm finishing my own studio in upstate NY. I'll be down in February and would like to see the facility, Last work I did in the south was at SESAC In Nashville years ago!
Drunken staff Christmas comment deleted.
You're fantastic, Kelly Rae.
You missed the part about Benji Lee though...
