Friday LinkFrogging - 6/9/17

Sometimes the stars align. Things are just easy. You pick up the weekly web fun for the boss and the lady of choice falls into your lap. This is that week.   I could do this all in one sentence. Nothing else I say will matter as much in the pop-culture universe.   BEHOLD!! the grand-daughter of Elvis Aaron Presley, Riley Keough.   That’s right, the King is still getting it done two generations later.   Much as I’d like that to be the end, two factors com...

SXSW 2014: Tragedy, punks, and fighting in the streets

Photo: Wilson Lee Photography   …and metal, always metal. But you have to cut a headline somewhere!   The night before I arrived, a 21-year old from Killeen, trying to escape from police chasing him on suspicion of having stolen the car he was in, ran down 23 people on a pedestrian section of Red River Ave., killing two and critically injuring 8 others. There was concern as to what the appropriate response should be, but in the end, the show(s) went on.   After dropp...

The Jibbies & Loond Show: Episode 057 – Goblins vs. Scorpions

Jibbies & Loond hit the town a couple of Sundays back for a great night of heavy rock music. Fitzgerald’s took what was initially booked as two shows on the same day – one tour headlined by Orange Goblin upstairs, another by Scorpion Child down – and decided instead to turn it into a mini-fest, with one ticket letting you go back and forth between the two. With the prog explorations of Lazer/Wulf, the garage cock rock of Wilson, the 70s-style greatness of both Gypsy Hawk and Kadavar, and the melodic thrash of Holy Grail also on hand, it created a metal buffet of truly epic proportions. And instead of telling you about it after the fact our duo took their gear into the field to report from the front lines while their ears still rang.

Melvins: 30th Anniversary Tour, Covers Album, Maryland Deathfest

The Melvins celebrate their 30th anniversary with an extensive North American tour, kicking off July 12 in Phoenix, Ariz. “Has it really only been 30 years?” asked singer/guitar player Buzz Osborne. “Dang! Thanks to everyone who’s been there for us! It’s been an exciting trip and I probably should have listened and learned more. I apologize for anything I’ve ever done wrong and for anything I’m going to do wrong… Ha!” ‘Everybody Love...

Interview: Seb Bismuth, Abrahma vox/guitar

Abrahma’s ‘Through The Dusty Paths of Our Lives’ debut was The Jibbies & Loond Show’s Album of the Year of 2012; a heady blend of ‘70s prog-tinged classic rock and modern stoner. Singer/guitarist/songwriter Sebastian Bismuth was kind enough to get in touch from France shortly before heading out on a European tour with Small Stone Recordings label-mates Wo Fat and update our duo regarding both where the band came from and where it might be going.   J&...

dUNE TX: Houston's Garage Rock

SXSW is but a distant Los Alamos-like memory at this point, its half-life nowhere near expired, but enough decay having occurred that the feet feel normal and the mind can begin to wander to other musical experiences, both future and past. May is going to be an unbelievably full month of rock in greater Houston, with no less than the Dwarves, the Queers, Suicidal Tendencies, Sick Of It All, Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Kvelertak, Cancer Bats, Black Tusk, Torche, King’s X, Clutch, and The...

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 051 - SXSW 2013 Metal Preview

It’s that time again folks: SXSW, the annual excuse for attendees to know exactly where they’ll be on St. Patrick’s Day each year, or to be conflicted about how they’re going to hit the next day party and watch the first rounds of March Madness at the same time. Jibbies & Loond don’t brook these distractions lightly. Their mission is clear and their aim is true; metal immersion. If you are of similar purpose and think you have the stamina to keep up, this episode lays out everywhere you need to be to catch all the top-shelf metal you can while staggering around Austin wondering why you keep forgetting to eat and if your feet really will ever be the same again, again.

Our duo also reflect upon the Randy Blythe not-guilty verdict, look in on what Howard Jones has been up to, revel in the continued ascent of ATX’s own Scorpion Child, and try to keep up with the dueling Queensryches.
