Living The American Dream Caesar’s Way

Living The American Dream Caesar’s Way

I came across the self-titled Little Caesar cassette in a bargain bin about twenty years ago, attracted by the cover art.  I flipped it over and noticed Bob Rock’s name in the producer category…..to the cash register Batman! . At that time, my friends and I thought Bob Rock was a God (Canadian as well) and anything he laid his hands to was gold, much like our opinion of Rick Rubin.  As I did every week,…

When Something Stands For Nothing!

When Something Stands For Nothing! The Headstones are one of my all time favourite bands, Canadian as well.  I discovered them from a compilation cassette that was circulated around my friend’s campus at York Universityin Toronto back in the early 90’s.  The cassette contained the song Heart of Darkness and we played it over and over again, loving the dark energy of the track.  It had even come with a window sticker of the Headstones logo…

WASP

I don’t really care for covers or remakes, to me it just says that the artist was too damn lazy to think of a song. Yes I said it. But I had a change of heart when I heard WASP (Chris Holmes, lol) sing their remake of  Who’s classic “The Real Me”. Featured on the 1989 album The Headless Children. The album was a first for Frank Banali (Quiet Riot), and the last to feature Chris…

Raising Hell in KKKalifornia hell

Andrew Jacobs here, Raise your hand if you first heard Aerosmith’s 1975 classic “Walk This Way” via their collaboration on the song with the rap/hip hop group Run DMC in 1986 (and played on this week’s Covers With Attitude show). *raises hand* Although I’d been familiar with rap/hip hop music since 1984 (having seen and thoroughly enjoyed the movie Breakin’ when it was released in the theater that year), it wasn’t until two years later when Run…

This MONSTER has TEETH!

October 9th, 2012 and KISS have uncaged “MONSTER”, their 20th studio album. I am here to tell you that this Monster has Teeth! Now I will admit to you that I am indeed a complete and unabashed KISS Geek. Live, this band has no rival. They completely wrote the book on delivering the biggest spectacle in rock. That said, it has been many, many years since I have been actually excited to get to a…

my favorite album of 1991 (a.k.a. the best album you never heard in your life)

Andrew Jacobs here, 411 was an early ’90s melodic hardcore band from my hometown of Orange County, California.  And back in 1991, they were not only my #1 favorite band but arguably the most popular Orange County, California hardcore band of that year as well.  To give you an idea of just how popular 411 was, they were the first hardcore band that I ever saw play in front of a quadruple digit number of…

UNO! Good Clean FUN with Green Day

Back a couple months ago during our “Threesomes” week I informed our readers about Green Day’s plans to release three complete albums, each about two months apart. Well the world has received the first of these, aptly titled UNO! UNO! brings us a dozen new melodic three chord radio friendly “powerpoppunk” songs. To call Green Day a PUNK band at this point would be like calling Bon Jovi a heavy metal band. They indeed were heavily influenced…
