It's been a great morning in rockland. First, the original perfecters of the form, the Rolling Stones, come back with their greatest track in ages, 'Doom and Gloom.'
Then, the first brand new track in nearly as long emerges from (Houston, then LA, now Redding, CA) stalwarts the Business Machines.
And finally, holy shit, the first new track in 10 YEARS from Spacehog!
It actually all started last night with news that Ryan Adams had entered the studio with D-Generation ...

1. Trap Them - ‘Darker Handcraft’ – Prosthetic Records – Producer: Kurt Ballou
With guitars slicing, drums pummeling, and vocals howling, ‘Darker Handcraft’ is nothing short of a full American hardcore realization of the terrible fun promised by Entombed’s ‘To Ride…’. I loved that album...
It’s been a heck of a year for Jibbies & Loond. To help you celebrate, kick off the holidays right, and just generally get your rock on, it is time to present the show’s Top 10 albums of the year. We’ve also attached some YouTube materials so you can have a listen right here. Thank you very much for listening, and here’s to a great 2012 for all of us!
1. Trap Them – ‘Darker Handcraft’ (Prosthetic)
LinkFrogging - my homework never looked like this!
Jibbies takes off for Vienna, Austria, to catch Red Fang, Earthship, Intronaut, and The Ocean in action. It seems too much time on an airplane sets him off though, as no sooner does he land than he launches into a near-rant about how Down will go down in history as Phil Anselmo's main band, not Pantera. Dude won't stop talking(!), next hitting on his fears regarding Ginger's departure from Michael Monroe's band before finally coming up for air and letting Loond have a go. Gates of Slumber and Blood Feast both get looked into, and then before you know it Loond heads to the airport, bound for Sonisphere Turkey.
It happened a couple of days early, but Michael Monroe (via the pic above) has announced his new guiitarst. Replacing Ginger on stage-right will be Backyard Baby and Hellacopter....Dregen!
Though certainly not the highest-profile potential replacement (Andy McCoy, Nasty Suicide, Steve Stevens, Todd Youth, Richard Fortus, Izzy Stradlin), Dregen will fit in perfectly. I had the chance to see a spectacular set by Backyard Babies at a SXSW Man's Ruin shoucase in the mid '90s ...
I was standing near the food at a small Austin, Texas, music venue during SXSW in March 2010 when I see someone signing an autograph for a very eager fan. The someone looked for all the world like Ginger (the Wildhearts), but why on earth would he be in the same space and time as me. I mean, sure, I was there to see Michael Monroe's new band, but.....
And then llight dawned. Holy fuck. Ginger must be in MM's band! A few minutes later the Michael Monroe band took the stage and sure enough, the...
