Flashback Friday: This Corrosion

Flashback Friday: This Corrosion

This week’s Flashback Friday comes from the begrudgingly goth kings The Sisters of Mercy. I have occasionally mentioned that I spent quite a few years immersed in the goth/industrial scene, a scene that is centered around the club. Long before pop rappers started talking about “da club,” goth kids were spending as much time as […]

Flashback Friday: Pantera – Vulgar Display of Power

Flashback Friday: Pantera – Vulgar Display of Power

Perhaps one of the most influential metal albums of the 1990s, Vulgar Display of Power is said to have revitalized thrash metal, speeding up the riffs and rhythms and adding a harder-edged, grinding vocal flourish. Several songs from this release have become some of the band’s best known, such as “Fucking Hostile”, “Mouth for War”, […]

Flashback Friday: Sordid Humor

Flashback Friday: Sordid Humor

There are Jaguars in Mexico. Sordid Humor’s cd “Light Music for Dying People” was released posthumously by Capricorn Records in 1994. It has been a while since I have done a Flashback Friday post. I dunno why, I guess I’ve just had other things to post about lately. Well, the other day I was out […]

Flashback Friday: They Might Be Giants

Flashback Friday: They Might Be Giants

“Hey, Mr. DJ” Many summer breaks and vacations in my adolescence were spent in New Jersey, at the home of my favorite aunt and uncle, and my older cousin, Josh. Josh was my hero growing up. Three years my senior, Josh was the definition of cool. His influence left an imprint on many areas of […]

Flashback Friday: KMFDM

Flashback Friday: KMFDM

While I have plenty of childhood stories from my summer breaks at grandmothers, I thought I’d instead go back to the Tampa industrial scene of the 90’s. Propaganda tells you pot is a gateway drug. KMFDM was a gateway band for the whole industrial club scene. You could measure a kids involvement in the industrial […]

I’ve mentioned before that I spent summers with my Grandmother because both of my folks had to work. When I was small my uncle still lived there and his room was off-limits. One day I snuck in there only to be greeted with this: Scared. the. shit. outta. me. Wikipedia says it was released in […]

Flashback Friday: Produkt13

Flashback Friday: Produkt13

Okay, you don’t remember P13. As a matter of a fact, you’ve never heard of P13. Produkt13 was me and my bud Mike. Earlier in the week I was going through some old Cd’s in the computer room and came across a few mp3s of our songs, so I decided to post them here. These songs offer a little light […]

Flashback Friday: Jane's Addiction

Flashback Friday: Jane's Addiction

Oh heck yes! Today we have another reader submitted Flashback Friday song/story. This one comes from TDB: There are a handful of songs that have imprinted themselves in my mind for the time, place, and feelings they bring back when I hear them years later. Jane Says by Jane’s Addiction is one of those songs. […]

Flashback Friday: Ray Charles

Flashback Friday: Ray Charles

Man…it’s Friday and damn do i need a weekend. When I was a young’un both of my folks worked, so, during the summer break I would stay with my grandmother. I guess it was the summer between 3rd and 4th grade when I first heard today’s Flashback song. Flashback Song: Ray Charles – Hit the […]

Flashback Friday: DBT/Lucero

Flashback Friday: DBT/Lucero

I am doing a different type of Flashback Friday this week since I am about to walk out the door for a 650 +/- mile road trip to see The Drive-by Truckers and Lucero. There is no shortage of people out there that will tell you how downloading is killing the industry…starving artists..etc. etc. Well, […]
