Re: Sat 9/10 - Something To Do CD Release w/ 4AM & Run & Punch

Yes! You are totally right - it's at the Frequency. I'm a little rusty at this.

Re: The Giant Wagstaff CD Listening Project Thread

Man, I really just can't get in to solo Ian Hunter. Love Mott, but the sound of his solo tunes (and often their length; they always just feel too unedited and too long to me) leave me so, so, so cold. I honestly hear very little difference between his Mott and solo songwriting. Mott has long songs ...

Re: The Giant Wagstaff CD Listening Project Thread

IAN HUNTER -- Mott The Hoople are one of my favorite bands and Ian Hunter's solo work is simply a continuation of the same kind of melodic rock he perfected with that group. I only have two of his solo albums on CD --1975's Ian Hunter and 1979's You're Only Alone With A Schizophrenic but I can hone...

Re: Mayoral Forums

Yeah, I'm not liking Resnick at all; not a lot there in terms of substance, IMO. He's kind of skating by with skimpy details and a lot of "I started a business", which, great, but what else? Full Disclosure; I kind of know both Soglin and Maniaci (it's a small town, yeah?) and I kind of li...

Re: The Walker For President Thread

Things people need to get over about Walker: - He didn't graduate college: Neither did Bill Gates. They don't offer a major in running the country and, if they did, you would hate every kid who took it. This is legit going to be an issue if he gets past the very, very early stages of running for pr...

Re: Cold week coming

I've been enjoying reading the various aggravated social media posts about "kids today need to toughen up, they are pussies!" in response to various schools closing in response to crazy low wind chills. It seems reasonable to me that if it's legitimately dangerous for a child to be outside...

Re: New Rock Hall inductees

Gotta agree with y'all on the Paul Butterfield thing; he's terrible, the band is terrible... So he is terrible because you say so. Others disagree. You forgot to rip on Mike Bloomfield. That is right; he is terrible because I SAY SO. One day, all of you shorts-wearing blues farts will be gone from ...

Re: New Rock Hall inductees

Is there a Lou Reed solo release that's essential in the way the classic-era Velvet Underground albums generally are? Transformer perhaps? Neither Reed solo nor the VU are particular favorites of mine, but I remember a lot of people having that album and I think "Walk on the Wild Side" mi...

Re: New Rock Hall inductees

Man, I love Lou Reed, but, his solo work is not worthy of any legit hall of fame. VU? Yes. And they're in. And it's great. But Lou Reed doesn't have one front-to-back classic to his name, he has almost no 'hit' records, and his solo stuff has influenced pretty much no one. There is no reason to pret...

Re: Soglin and company decide to help kill smokers

How many of you have been in a small music venue with 10 people "vaping" at the same time?

I have. It's gross.

Re: NYT Sulking About Tomorrow's Beatdown

I actually kind of agree with the mentality; the voter turnout in midterm elections is so measly, I could see changing the terms for House Reps.
