Bruce Kulick Interview 2016

Bruce Kulick Interview 2016

  My name is Loose Cannon and I’m a KISSaholic, Podcaster, and occasional Decibel Geek staff writer.  It’s my goal to remove “occasional” from my description this year. I had the good fortune of an in-person, 90 + Bruce Kulick Interview 2016 prior to a Grand Funk Railroad concert in Key West, Florida. The fact that this actually happened is beyond me. We covered his entire career including KISS Exposed video antics, Hot In The Shade drum…

Charm City Devils: Cowbell Remix Video & Personal Reflection

Charm City Devils: Cowbell Remix Video & Personal Reflection

Charm City Devils have been featured heavily in the last few weeks on both the DG podcast as well as several Facebook posts.  This is a fine decision by our fearless leaders and inspired this post. While meditating after an intense yoga session, I reflected on my previous life when a few clowns and I wrote (read: wasted our time) for a site called RUKFM.net.  RUFKM stands for “Are You Fucking Kidding Me?”  We also…

Vains of Jenna: The Art of Telling Lies – Album Review

Vains of Jenna: The Art of Telling Lies – Album Review

The country of Sweden is famous for it’s neutrality during wartime,  delicacies like Swedish Fish and the culinary skills of the Swedish Chef.  They are also know for exporting musical atrocities such as Ace of Base, Roxette, ABBA, a steady supply of unlistenable Death Metal bands….. and Vains of Jenna. A few of the tracks from The Art of Telling Lies showed up in shuffle lately and reminded me how great this album is.  Their debut album was truly awful.  Since that…

Maylene & The Sons of Disaster: The Power of Rock Compels You

Maylene & The Sons of Disaster:  The Power of Rock Compels You

Maybe you’ve heard of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. Probably not.  But they released a damn fine balls out rock album in 2009 that recently came up in shuffle today and prompted me to inform you of it’s greatness.  It is a bit different then what is normally listed here but it is my job to expand your horizons. Band pic or extras from Deliverance.  Not sure. This album is so good, it will…

Rock Ain't Dead, It's Just in Rehab: New(ish) Album Roundup

2014 has been pretty weak for new, quality rock but some solid releases have come out over the last few months and inspired this post.  Instead of doing separate posts for each review, here’s the motherload. I have little time for shenanigans but feel compelled to make you aware that there is some great new music… and also inform you of what to avoid. You may want to grab a beer, we’ll be here awhile. …

Wild Wagener Week: Extreme: Good Band, Terrible Brand (Pornograffitti Review)

Gary Cherone said this was a “concept album.” True if by “concept” you mean “songs about fucking.” In light of Decibel Geek’s interview with super-producer Michael Wagener , I recently dusted off a copy of the Wagener produced Extreme II: Pornograffitti.  I hadn’t listened to the album in over a decade.  I was addicted to this album back in the day (great then, great now) and remember that I owned this album for over a year…

Sammy & Friends = An Album Nobody Wants or Lulu Part Deux

World’s reaction after listening to a Sammy & Friends / Lulu playlist “As a rule, we’re always supposed to applaud the collapse of the record industry.  But that collapse is why Lulu exists. If we still lived in the radio prison of 1992, do you think Metallica would purposefully release an album that no one wants? No way.  [After hearing this idea] ten minutes later Bob Rock would be parking his Lexus at the studio.” …

Confessions of a KISSAHOLIC: A Coming of Age Tale

I’m 39 years old, my name is Loose Cannon, and I’m a KISSAHOLIC. Let me tell you a coming of age story full of twists, embarrassment and a pyromaniac. While listening to Decibel Geek’s KISSMAS IN JULY (and endless KISS references each show)   I reflected on how, through a three step process, I became a KISS junkie always chasing the high of Alive!   1980: When I was 6 years old, I was first introduced…

Slash Kills Axl Dead – Album Review (2010 Solo Release)

Summary:  Highlights of the greatness of Slash’s 2010 release and the lackluster followup Apocalyptic Love.  Written with a questionable sense of humor.  I put Slash’s most recent Slash album last week on my commute featuring Myles Kennedy, Apocalyptic Love,  and reconfirmed it’s failure.   Street Value:  $4  Top Hat Worthy:  Standing in the Sun, You’re a Lie, Shots Fired, Anastasia. Flush Twice:  The Rest  The rest of the album is packed with completely forgettable songs….

Bobaflex – Charlatan’s Web – Album Review: Buy Immediately, if not Sooner

Bobaflex – Charlatan’s Web – Album Review:  Buy Immediately, if not Sooner

Summary -Bobaflex – Charlatan’s Web – Album Review Bobaflex’s new album Charlatan’s Web is one the best hard rock releases of 2013. Nine lean, muscular and melodic tracks clocking in at just over 30 minutes = or > than their last release Hell in my Heart. There’s no “value-added” bullshit to be found cluttering up the mix and infecting your hard drive; its solid to the last second leaving you addicted, sore and aching for more. Gateway…
