Lemmy remembered

Photo: Stacy Schwartz   Motorhead was more than just one of the greatest metal bands ever. So many have attitude, heaviness, apocalyptic visions, tales of debauchery; and many manage to effectively translate these into their music. But precious few have expressed ALL of these, often in the same song, as articulately as Motorhead and Lemmy. I never met Lemmy Kilmister. I don’t even have any particularly detailed stories of my many times seeing his band live. Well, none that don&rsqu...

Friday LinkFrogging – 12/4/15

Hey! Guess who’s dishing it out this week. Bruce is on safari somewhere else in the great Gulf Coast region watching some kin get hitched. Well, only one’s actually related to him, just to be clear.   In case you haven’t noticed, I like rock music and auto racing. My past fill-ins on the Frog have pulled cheesecake from both realms. That said, I’m mindful of the need to be topical; to tie our weekly treat to something happening now. An early scan of the movie relea...

My Favorite Albums Of 2015

Goatsnake – Black Age Blues (Southern Lord) – The mighty Goatsnake returned this year with a superb album of doomy bluesy groove. The harmonica and soulful female backing vocals lend an awesome Delta Blues feel/influence that works so well in the grand context of this brilliant record. Doomy in the sense that some of the songs are fairly slow, but the record as a whole is not plodding, sludgy, or oppressive. It’s got a really uplifting vibe to it. Killing Joke – Pylon (S...

We're back kids. The frequency may not be like it used to be, but there's always good stuff in the world of Metal to gab about.

Loond throws in some words on the re-issue of Num Skull's Ritually Abused debut. Jibbies gives the run down on Faith No More and openers Napalm Death show. Loond updates us on the Overkill/Symphony X show. The guys also discuss how p...

Killing Joke - Pylon

Killing Joke continues to make some of the most incredible music that has graced mankind’s ears in their over 37 years of existence.  This phenomenal band has just released their 15th album entitled “Pylon” and it is simply mind blowing.  I cannot think of a more urgent, compelling, important, relevant, captivating, aggressive, and beautiful record than this one for 2015.  “Pylon” is pure sonic majesty and in its 10 tracks it takes the listener on a j...

Fitzgerald’s/Transmission honeymoon over

Well that didn’t take long. Barely a week after their first show together, the relationship between Houston live music fixture Fitzgerald’s and Austin-based concert promoters Transmission seems to be unravelling (has unwound?). At the heart of the matter, according to booking-agent sources, is Fitzgerald’s failure to perform many of the upgrades it agreed to as part of the partnership under which Transmission became the venue’s exclusive promoter. Foremost among the ite...

The Jibbies & Loond Show: Episode 067 - We're all Venom's children

With apologies to the mighty Loond for its lengthy delay, I hereby unleash our latest podcast! We discuss the might and influence of Venom and delve into technology-vs.-rock, with Nothing More used as an example that the two can co-exist. New music from Lucifer (ex-The Oath, Gaz Jennings), Tao Cross (ex-Amebix, Away), Goatsnake, and Armored Saint gets evaluated and the eyes of metal also fall on Superjoint, Ten Foot Beast, Headcrusher, Faith No More, Motorhead, Anthrax, and Saxon.

Armored Saint - Win Hands Down

It has been five years since the release of 'La Raza' and the mighty Armored Saint are back with a new record chock full of more classic Heavy Rock/Metal anthems. Much like 'La Raza'; 'Win Hands Down' is built on a chassis of Modern Rock song structures. There is still that classic Metal vibe, but this record is less inspired by NWOBHM as it is by the Heavy Rock of today. With that said; 'Win Hands Down' is another timeless album of songs that will endure when the next fad has come and gone. My ...

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 066 - Guest Host Zaid Hydari

Welcome to another episode with a guest host...my little brother Zaid. In this episode we get a perspective from a member of a younger generation on Metal. An interesting discussion is had on how people “discover” Metal and what happens when they do not have that incredible privilege. We also talk about Metal from an international perspective...especially from an Eastern stand-point. The episode culminates in a conversation about the awesome Iraqi band Acrassicauda. Horns Up! &ndas...
