HENRY GROSS – Plug Me Into Something (That 70’s Guy Retro-Review)

This time around for That 70’s Guy’s Retro Review, I am pleased to dig out the wonderful 1975 hidden gem that is Plug Me Into Something from Henry Gross. Who you may ask? I remember thinking the same thing back when my buddy Rod said he heard a cool song called “Tomorrow’s Memory Lane” on late night AM radio, when distant U.S. stations’ reception became clearer. In Canada, the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission)…

BRODERO – Liars and Thieves (Single Review)

Put together by brothers Jake and Paul Figueroa (formerly of Crobot), Brodero is rounded out on lead guitar by fellow New Jersey boy Joe Cirotti.  Their first single, “Liars and Thieves”, drops on December 12th.  It is a rifftastic little ditty which may or may not be a reference to Jake and Paul’s prior band.  When asked, Jake was more pragmatic saying “I mean, we are all liars and thieves in someway right?”  The lyrics…
