Who is putting up ‘interceptor’ cell towers? who is stealing celebrities’ cellphone naked selfies? The mystery deepens.
Where interceptors have been discovered (image by ESD America)

Where interceptors have been discovered (image by ESD America)

“Could it be…..   Saaataan?!” said the Churchlady

Mysterious “interceptor” cell towers in the USA are grabbing phone calls — but they’re not part of the phone networks. And, two experts told VentureBeat today, the towers don’t appear to be projects of the National Security Agency (NSA).

According to Venture Beat (via Popular Science), a high-security cell phone maker found at least 17 cell towers that can intercept your phone’s data before it reaches your carrier’s tower, thereby getting around the privacy screen.

No ownership or name information can be found on the interceptor towers, which the company said isn’t necessarily a tower.

The FCC is launching  an investigation onto who is using the fake towers, cyber-criminals, foreign intelligence, criminal gangs or something else.

Who is stealing celebrity naked pics and posting them?selfie-face

MEANWHILE, you may have heard about the celebrity nudies  recently ‘stolen’ from cellphones and posted online.  Security firms are investigating how, possibly iPhone’s iCloud service. However, some naked pictures were from snapchat, the service where you can send a pic for one-time view, and it allegedly disappears (unfortunately, oodles of users didn’t know about ‘screen capture’).

Nonetheless, I wonder if the two are related?? And why were no penises exposed?

Mashable.com has more of the exposed darker details including a partial list of devices the images were allegedly taken from:

  • 1 Droid Razr (Android)
  • 9 unspecified iPhone devices
  • 7 iPhone 4
  • 17 iPhone 4S
  • 33 iPhone 5
  • 12 iPhone 5S

Which reinforces the obvious thing police tell us after a car break-in, “If you don’t want stuff stolen, don’t leave it in an unlocked car.”

Author Note: Comedian Ricky Gervais was ridiculed and tweet-attacked for his thoughts, which were along the same thought but relative to celebrities, pics and computers.  So don’t tell anyone I said that about unlocked cars, lol.

Dr. John Website

The legendary Dr. John, a six-time Grammy Award-winning musician and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee will bring a bit of New Orleans to the Saenger Theatre this September.
Known throughout the world as the embodiment of New Orleans musical legacy, Dr. John is a true icon in American culture. His colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford.
Dr. John headed west where he continued to be in demand as a session musician, playing on records by Sonny and Cher, Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin and The Rolling Stones. During that time he launched his solo career, developing the charismatic persona of Dr. John The Nite Tripper. A legend was born with his breakthrough 1968 album “Gris-Gris” which introduced the world to his unique blend of funk, rhythm & blues, psychedelic rock and Creole roots. Several of his many career highlights include the masterful album “Sun, Moon and Herbs” in 1971 which included cameos from Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger and 1973’s “In The Right Place,” which contained the chart hits “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Such A Night.”

In addition to his six Grammy wins (1989, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2008 and 2013), he has received six other Grammy nominations over the years. In 2007 he was nominated for “Sippiana Hericane,” his Hurricane Katrina benefit disc. After Hurricane Katrina Dr. John immediately stepped up to the plate with generous relief fund-raising concerts and recordings. In 2007 he was also inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame and the Blues Hall of Fame. In 2008 he released “City That Care Forgot,” winning him a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album. His latest album “Locked Down,” released in 2012 with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys also won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album.

In 2013 Dr. John was awarded an honorary doctorate from Tulane University. Dr. John is currently hard at work completing an album in tribute to Louis Armstrong called “Ske-Dat-De-Dat…The Spirit of Satch,” which is scheduled to be released on August 19.

A section of a popular Southern France Beach, The Garoupe, is cracking down on people constantly boasting about their holidays to friends back home with selfies (braggies) by working with mobile network, Three, to create designated ‘No Braggie Zones.’

selfie-faceThe Holiday Spam Police will be patrolling the No Braggies Zones looking out for offenders taking sneaky snaps of themselves during busy holidays.

Daily Mail UK says “Authorities have recognised the need to protect office workers and others not lucky enough to be on holiday from highly immodest beach shots’”

People are also encouraged to comment on holiday braggies with the hashtag #holidayspam.

On Tuesday, August 26, beginning at 5:30PM, Mobile Arts Council is convening a meeting of Mobile’s Creative Community to develop a united plan of action regarding the future of public funding for the nonprofit organizations that provide vital opportunities and services for the citizens of Mobile.

The meeting will be held in the Arts Council’s office at 318 Dauphin Street.

Porter Beer at Fairhope Brewing Company

pic courtesy of Fairhope Brewing Company

Believe it or not, beer does have a few healthy side effects, according to Mashable.com.   Not as healthy as broccoli, but who would have a Broccoli Taste Fest?

We all know one effect, beer  makes you pee… a lot.  Could be due to lots of water,  thereby cleansing your system of some nasty toxins.

Beer has good cholestoral and can reduce risk of heart attack by 30%.  It’s also believed to help reduce risk of diabetes, kidney stones and bladder cancer (probably cuz you pee a lot).

Add in a little Vitamin B, Potassium, and lots of fiber, and hey, you’re good to go.

Just don’t blame us if you get pulled over and claim you heard beer is healthy.  Moderation is the key.

 

Celebrating the golden brew this weekend is Dauphin Street with its annual Beer Fest, the Exploreum with the Science of Beer, and Fairhope Brewing Company with their 2nd homemade concoction that honors local musicians, or brewsicions.  The new flavor inspired by Underhill Family Orchestra.

Get the beer details on 92ZEW’s Event Page.

Here’s a unique dishy cocktail for your next tailgating event, an entire fried chicken bloody mary, and then some.

Look at this whole chicken bloody mary, yum yum“MILWAUKEE, Aug. 7 (UPI) — Apparently topping a massive Bloody Mary with a bacon cheeseburger slider just wasn’t enough for a Milwaukee bar.

After gaining some notoriety for their burger-topped drink, “‘The Bloody Masterpiece,” Sobelman’s has decided to raise the beverage bar once again.

The establishment has introduced a new drink, “Chicken Fried Bloody Beast,” that features all the same garnishes — cheese, sausage, pickles, olives, onions, mushrooms, asparagus, scallions, shrimp, lemon, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, celery — as the Masterpiece.

However, the Beast is also topped off with an entire fried chicken.”

Giving ‘Buried in the Bottle’ new meaning….

48-year-old Anto Wickham’s spent $50,000 on a 10-foot casket shaped like a bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey for his own burial (when the time comes).

Jack Daniels CoffinWhen Wickham, a former soldier of the Royal Irish Regiment for 22 years, witnessed the death of eight Army pals during the Iraq war, he began to plan his own funeral, which he to be a celebration, rather than a mourning.

“Over a 28-day period in February 2007, I was attacked 74 times and there were some days we would get three or four hits in one day. I was attacked by heavy machine gun fire, IEDs and roadside bombs.”

The company that built it, ‘Crazy Coffins’ said it took several months to build.

Led Zeppelin singer Robert PlantLed Zep’s Robert Plant has hit back at guitarist Jimmy Page, further fuelling their tiff over a reunion tour, saying he was “disappointed and baffled” by what was said.

n May Day & Night reported how Jimmy, 70, was fed up with the 65-year-old vocalist and claimed that everyone else in the band was ready to get together for some shows but the only obstacle was Robert, who was “playing games by holding up matters”.

Yet the Stairway To Heaven singer, who is on tour with his new outfit The Sensational Space Shifters, says: “I feel for the guy [Jimmy]. He knows he’s got the headlines if he wants them. But I don’t know what he’s trying to do. So I feel slightly disappointed and baffled.”

Mobile’s own crafter of tunes, Eric Erdman, writes more songs and launches Kickstarter Campaign to fund recording.

Eric Erdman, he writes the songs that make the whole world cry and/or laugh

Eric Erdman apparently rides the river of songs. They flow so quickly, one would think he was writing songs before walking.

Quality tales for a tune are quite elusive, but Eric not only catches them, he molds, moves and bends them into enduring art for the musically minded.   Travelling the world is a great source of stories, and Eric has written more than 20 songs after his travels.

This time, Eric wants to take it to a whole new level by recording in legendary Fame studios, Muscle Shoals to get that gritty old soul sound of so many legendary albums.

As we all know, some major players use that studio so it’s quite costly. So Eric launched a kickstarter campaign to get the funds for proper treatment of his songs.

You can help out by donating, even if it’s just a dollar. His goal is $15K by July 17 and he’s about halfway there at the moment. Let’s get together and help a Mobile Brother of Music out. With his talent, he’s bound to put Mobile somewhere on the musical map.

Here’s the kickstarter page to donate —>Eric Erdman’s New Songs Need some Muscle Shoals On Em

Ryan Adams Has Something Goodryan-adams-gimme-something-good

This morning (6/26) we got a sample of Adams’ new material and he’s given us something good. Coincidentally, the song is called “Give Me Something Good.” It is the first single from Ryan’s self-titled album, set for release Sept. 9. We’re not sure if the album includes Ryan’s recent cover of the Pointer Sisters’ “Neutron Dance” performed at a recent tech conference.
Adams plans to hit the road in the fall to support the new release.

The rockin’ duo 7Horse liked Gulf Shores so much they put it in a song.

Appearing two times on 92ZEW’s Free Concert Series, and the 2nd time, they surprised fans with a song that has Gulf Shores prominently displayed. At the time they were still working on all the pieces.

Turns out, it’s a real toe-tapper about travelling and the fondness of some places.  Finally we can all hear it. However, it was not included on the new record Songs for a Voodoo Wedding. But you can listen here or maybe hear it on 92.1 FM.

So, what do you think of the tune? Want to hear it more? 7Horse Pics & More on 92ZEW.net 7Horse Website 7Horse on Twitter

okgo-treadmillsThe Titans of Treadmills, OK Go, are back at it, this time with optical illusionistic new video.

OK Go’s been known to make some outrageously compelling and innovative music videos to their songs, and the video for the brand new song, “The Writing’s on the Wall,” is no exception.  The visual is all about optical illusions.
According to Rolling Stone, the video took three weeks to assemble and 50 takes to get right. It uses mirrors, paint and camera angles to continually trick your eyes. The confusion is meant to symbolize the lyrics, which describe miscommunication in a relationship that’s falling apart.okgo-writing

Stylistically reminiscent of New Order/Joy Division.

The new album, Hungry Ghosts, is out in October.   More info at OKGo.net

If you’ve never seen the treadmills or rube goldberg videos, scroll down to watch


Check out OK Go’s youtube channel for plenty of eye/ear candy.
Here’s the video that made them into music video stars


The witty and brainy outfit came out with this mathematically brilliant Rube Goldberg inspired video a few years later. The timing of the numerous ‘machines’ is impeccable.  At the inaugural Hangout Music Festival, frontman Damian Kulash told us this video was done in one take.  While the final version does have a splice, it’s only because they wanted to incorporate another part of a different take (unfortunately, that’s all he told us as a torrential rain storm distracted us and we were evacuating the grounds when he arrived, lol). Nevertheless, check it out.
Who doesn’t like Rube Goldberg machines?

Green Day’s Billie Jo Armstrong

Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong played a very special show in Oakland, California on Thursday. The rocker performed with his son Joey, along with touring Green Day member Jason White, as a group called Two and a Half Men. According to Restless-Press.com, the set included Green Day songs like “99 Revolutions,” “Church on Sunday,” “2000 Light Years Away” and more. It’s a good thing Joey was on stage with Billie since the rocker told us he forgets about everything back at home while he’s performing (AUDIO). Fan filmed footage is available at Instagram.com/ArmstrongJoey.

Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, Hangout Festival 2012 (Dave Vann)

Foo Fighters agreed to play a show in Richmond, Virginia that was crowd-funded and organized without their knowledge. There was a campaign by local fans to sell tickets to a show that didn’t yet exist, with the hopes the group would see the interest and play their first gig in the city since 1998. Fourteen-hundred tickets sold at 50 bucks each and it worked because the band tweeted at the organizers, “See ya soon… let’s have a good time.” A venue and date has not yet been determined but you can learn more about the successful campaign at FooFightersRichmond.com.

South Alabama’s own Willie Sugarcapps: (l-r) Corky Hughes, Will Kimbrough, Grayson Capps, Anthony and Savanna Crawford

Willie Sugarcapps, Vienna Teng, Valerie June, The Bankesters, Pete Seeger, The Soul of John Black, I See Stars, Rabbit Rabbit, Sultans of String, Elizabeth Mitchell, Marcio Novelli and Fanfara Tirana Meets Transglobal Underground Are Among The 13th Independent Music Awards Winners

 Fan Online Voting Will Determine The 13th IMA Vox Pop Winners In addition to the judge-determined winners, music fans from around the world have until midnight Friday, July 18th to champion their favorite Nominees and determine The 13th IMA Vox Pop Winners by voting online at: IndependentMusicAwards.com

The fan-selected Winners will benefit from additional marketing support from The Independent Music Awards. To date more than 25,000 music fans have cast their votes in support of their favorite 13th IMA artists.

Willie Sugarcapps, Vienna Teng, Valerie June, The Bankesters, Pete Seeger, The Soul of John Black, I See Stars, Rabbit Rabbit, Sultans of String, Elizabeth Mitchell, Marcio Novelli and Fanfara Tirana Meets Transglobal Underground are among the exceptional self-released and independent label talent named today by Music Resource Group (MRG) as the judge-determined Winners of The 13th Independent Music Awards (The IMAs), the influential international awards program for independent bands and fans.

The veteran artists and rising stars named as 13th IMA Winners in more than 80 Album, EP, Song, Music Producer, Music Video and Design categories were winnowed from thousands of submissions from around the globe, and were determined by a panel of influential artists and music industry executives.

Among the noteworthy achievements of the 13th IMA program, Vienna Teng won four categories, the most any artist has received in a given year. The self-proclaimed “chamber folk” artist was honored in the Adult Contemporary Album, A Cappella Song, Social Action Song and Pop Song categories. Mree, who bills herself as an emerging, experimental folk artist, and who is currently entrolled at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, received top honors in the Music Producer category for her sophomore album “Winterwell.” The judges cited the sophisticated soundscapes that cushion the songs among the reasons for honoring the album’s overall production.

*  *  *

12thRadioKnown for championing original work by artists who follow their own muse, The IMAs provides Winners with performance, promotion and distribution opportunities that will place them in front of music supervisors, talent buyers, record label executives, and most importantly, fans worldwide. “While the number of outlets that promote new, independent music continues to grow, audiences that frequent these are splintered and don’t coalesce into a critical influencing group that artists once depended upon to achieve mainstream success,” said Martin Folkman, Executive Director of The Independent Music Awards. “The IMA program goal is to gain exposure for extraordinary self-released and independent label artists and their recent recordings.”

Artistry Has Its Awards For more than a decade artists and labels from around the world have found new fans and prominence through The Independent Music Awards. Produced by Music Resource Group, publisher of the popular industry contact database The Musician’s Atlas, The IMAs uses its unrivaled access to performance, promotion and distribution to connect Winners and Nominees to new audiences and revenue opportunities. The program receives submissions from artists previously on major labels as well as self-released and indie label talent from more than 70 countries on six continents. Submissions for The 13th Annual Independent Music Awards are currently being accepted at www.TheIndependentMusicAwards.com/submit.

Google plans to have its driverless car road-ready in a couple years

Google plans to have its driverless car road-ready in a couple years

Google revealed it plans to build its own self-driving cars from the ground up.

Best of all, there’s more room for texting and/or applying make-up as there’s no steering wheel, accelerator or brakes. But, it does have more sensors in strategic spots than is possible in a regular vehicle. It is also equipped with a big “stop” button. In addition to all this tech, Google’s autonomous car includes internal power steering and power brakes.

So when can we get these easier modes of transportation? Google founder Sergey Brin says, “Within a couple of years, we’ll — if we’ve passed the safety metrics we’ve put in place, which is to be significantly safer than a human driver … have them on the road,” he said.

Bastille’s Kyle and Will (aka Liam) surprised to meet Rodney Rotten during Hangout Festival

After their explosive set at Hangout Festival, Kyle & Will (aka Liam) came in to chat about influences, the small village Will grew up, why Kyle sounds like a ‘chimney sweep’ when he sings, drums, and then we get a surprise visitor, Rodney Rotten.

Yep, who knew?

In case you’re wondering who R. Rotten is, here’s his interview from the previous day.

Mgmt said No Video.

See y’all again for round 2 at Bonnaroooo.

 

 

PS….

Of course I know his name is William, but when you have a Brit intro’ing in one ear and a Southerner soundchecking in the other, and you’re from Detroit, there’s some bizarre results.   –> Wil -LIAM …

Jack White calls the new Vinyl record invention the “Ultra EP” on a new promo video.
Jack White's 'Lazaretto' vinyl record will play from the inside outward, has secret tracks under the label and an angel hologram

Jack White’s ‘Lazaretto’ vinyl record will play from the inside outward, has secret tracks under the label and an angel hologram

The record, to be released on White’s own Thirdman Records, will play from the inside outward and is likely the first of its kind with a locked groove on the outer edge that will repeat infinitely. It also boasts a hidden track on each side under the label. One of those tracks plays at 78 RPM and the other at 45 RPM, making this 180-gram vinyl release a three-speed record.

Meanwhile, the first song on Side B has two different intros, an acoustic one and an electric one, and depending on where you drop the needle, you’ll hear one of them.

Even more impressive, in the dead wax area of Side A, from the right angle, you can see a hologram of a spinning angel as the record turns. Pick it up on June 10th and see the official video Jack made showing it off below or at YouTube.com/OfficialTMR.

Ex-R.E.M., Sleater-Kinney, Nirvana, Flipper, Swans, Ministry, Young Fresh Fellows studio session

A new supergroup called super-Earth, featuring R.E.M.’s Peter Buck and Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker, made their live debut in Portland, Oregon last week and now, they’re recording music with a big name.

The guys are in the studio with Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic.

Filmmaker Lance Bangs revealed the news by tweeting a photo of the band and Krist, calling it a “studio session.” They’re likely recording the 12 songs the band played live at their recent show but there’s no word on when an album might come out or if Krist will ever perform with the group. Check out the photo at Twitter.com/LanceBangs.

While we’re all prepping for one of the biggest and best weekends at the beach, Gulf Shores City Council will be deciding the fate of Hangout Festival 2016 and beyond.

92ZEW sources say Hangout Festival’s request for an additional four years is up for consideration nextweek and some vocal residents are beginning to sway the vote to make it go away.   An anonymous Gulf Shores resident created an online petition to keep the festival and says the purpose of the petition is to “provide a majority voice for the local Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and surrounding area residents who support this annual event.”

If you’re a South Baldwin resident that wants to see the festival continue and have enjoyed a positive economic impact, then you can ‘sign’ the petition here.  One thousand signatures are needed by May 19.

Note the petition is for South Baldwin residents only, because the council looks to voters in their own district for decisionmaking.

Guitarist/Vocalist Dan Aurbach takes on the role of Televangelist, one of those TV Preachers who rake in the cash from the believers who believe their donation guarantees a spot in Heaven.
The new album, Turn Blue, will be released a few days before Hangout Festival. It can be pre-ordered if you hit up theblackkeys.com

Grizfolk is playing on the beach with 92ZEW’s Countdown to Hangout Festival Free Concert Series along with Wild Feathers, Shannon LeBrie, and Reach for the Beach challengers, The Mulligan Brothers.

Grizfolk website

from radio station KCRW:

grizfolk“In the case of Grizfolk, founded by Swedish natives Fredrik Eriksson and Sebastian Fritze, and Adam Roth, who has ties to America’s Deep South, the results are less global village, and more pushing the possibilities of pop.

One song in particular stood out to me from their recent standing-room-only, A&R-infested appearances at the Monday night residency I curate called School Night: “The Ripple“, (at press time still in the recording stages), which to me could be a crossover country phenomenon.

To be clear, this idea came about not by a cloying marketing strategy, but by honesty. the songs were traded back and forth while the members were in different parts of the world, finally coming together in Los Angeles to form the band, which is a mesmerizing experience live.

Other tracks are straight up anthems that can easily go the distance. “Vagabonds“, in particular, featuring Nikola Bedingfield (of the UK Bedingfields), is one such case, and already getting serious airplay.”

no-sinner-2-sb1Look for Vancouver based outfit No Sinner at 92ZEW Countdown to Hangout Fest Free Concert Series, opening for 28North
No Sinner, lead by 26-year-old Colleen Rennison is a force of nature, a post modern soul belter and queen of rock, a hard-singing, hard-loving, hard-drinking, hard-working throwback to those her and the guys grew up listening to, including Nina Simone, Tina Turner, Rolling Stones and Diana Ross.

Website

Rennison learned from a cousin that her name was “No Sinner” spelled backwards, is now the singer of a raucous rock band with guitarist Eric Campbell, drummer Ian Browne and rotating bassists Bradley Ferguson and Parker Bossley. Their debut album, Boo Hoo Hoo, includes six tracks from a 2012 EP released on Vancouver indie First Love Records.

Boo Hoo Hoo travels from the juke-joint jump blues of its title track and the Delta swamp of “Runnin’,” with a chugging Creedence beat, to “Love Is Madness” with a Motown bass line and a Dusty Springfield “Spooky” vibe. Other highlights include a cover of Nina Simone’s version of Nat Adderley / Oscar Brown Jr.’s “Work Song”, the soaring, affirmative gospel revival of “Rise Up,” the sensuous plaint of “If Anything” and the feedback-charged “Devil on My Back,” a band composition that features Black Mountain’s Matt Camirand.

No Sinner’s music is about the clash between the sacred and the profane, the preacher and the devil, the sins of Saturday night at the local watering hole being washed away in the redemption of Sunday morning in church; in short, the very contradiction at the heart of rock ’n’ roll.

“It’s a consistent theme in my life to negotiate between being animals and yet righteous,” explains Rennison. “How we need a healthy dose of both good and evil in our lives. Music itself is very much a medium between us and the spiritual world. The things we express in our songs run the gamut from sinful to celestial.”

On returning to her hometown from New York, Vancouver, Colleen started writing with Parker Bossley (formerly of Hot Hot Heat) and joined up with a rotating backing band, for a weekly Thursday night residency at Guilt and Company, a new club in Vancouver’s Gastown district. “I honed my chops, my stage confidence, my style and versatility,” explains Colleen. “I also learned to play with other musicians.”

“Lay down your burdens … And rise up!”

“So much of the music I started listening to as a girl came from churches and gatherings where people congregated and sang their blues away,” she says. “It’s a dirty business loving me / It’s going to be hard sometimes,” she warns on the sultry “If Anything.” “That’s a disclaimer for anyone who wants to get involved with me,” laughs Colleen. “I’m warning you now.”

With her in-your-face stage presence and down-to-earth T-shirt and shorts (“I’d like to think I’m bridging the gap between trash and class,” she says), Rennison is an old soul, wiser than her years might suggest. “I love the idea of these women who very much lived in a man’s world, touring on the road,” she says. “Just the idea of the things these women must have seen, the lives they led and how it came out in the music has always inspired me.

“I’ve always connected with folklore and history, a simpler time of life. Since I was a kid. I’ve always felt a little out of place in the modern world.” You can hear that reverence for the past in Boo Hoo Hoo, along with a desire to drag it kicking and screaming into 2013.

“I just want to play music with people I love and respect” says Colleen. “I want to see the world. People who come to our shows leave happy. And as long as you keep making music that people want to listen to, how could you go wrong? Colossal success would be nice, but right now we’re just concentrating on the quality and, hopefully, the rest will fall into place.”

No Sinner don’t mind you comparing them to other people, but they remain true to their own instincts.“We just write whatever comes to us,” insists Rennison. “We’re fans of a variety of different sounds and kinds of music. We’re inspired that artists like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, early Kings of Leon and Lucinda Williams brought it back to the basics and breathe in new life. Luckily, we’re in between so many styles, we have the liberty to do what we please. We really don’t have a formula. We’re not here to be the next anybody. We’ve got our own mark to make.”

Black Keys at Hangout Festival 2012Hangout Festival headliners, The Black Keys, rolled out the hypnotizing title track off their forthcoming album Turn Blue today via Youtube.

Rolling Stone called it “a slow-burning slice of psychedelia”: “When the music is done and all the lights are low,” sings frontman Dan Auerbach over a breezy electric guitar riff, synth-strings and a rumbling bassline. “I will remember the times when love would really glow.”

Listen out for the Kongos, my bet is you’ll be hearing their unique blend of rockin’ world music on a Top 40 radio station soon (like at least 80 times a week, lol).  That’s my music prediction of the week.

rock and roll hall of fame Nirvana kinda reunited to play with a slew of chick rockers pretending to be Kurt Cobain.  Kiss didn’t reunite.  Other inductees were Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel, The E Street Band, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt.

 

Other Highlights of the Honorary Night: 

· British musician and manager Peter Asher honored late Beatles manager Brian Epstein and original Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham with the Ahmet Ertegun Award for non-performers. They become the first managers inducted into the Hall.

Peter Gabriel was inducted by Coldplay’s Chris Martin.  

Martin read a joke “excerpt” from the Bible, that he claimed was from the Book of Genesis (get it?). It told the story of the band and the “Angel Gabriel.” He went on to list off the singer’s accomplishments, saying, “He helped John Cusack get his girlfriend back in the movie Say Anything.” When he accepted the honor, Peter advised up and coming musicians to surround themselves with brilliance. Peter and Chris then together performed “Washing of the Water,” also from Us. Peter went on to do “In Your Eyes” with Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour.

Rage Against the Machine guitarist, Tom Morello, inducted Kiss.

He told the crowd, “Kiss was never a critics’ band, kiss was a people band.” Morello said the criteria for induction should really be impact, influence and awesomeness and explained how Kiss excels at all of those. He listed all the non-original members of the band, who aren’t being inducted, and said they deserved a round of applause. He then brought up what he called Rock and Roll all Nite and Party Every Day Hall of Fame inductees Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. When accepting the honor, Gene stated, “This is a profound moment for all of us,” and he complimented each of his bandmates individually, past and present. Peter spoke about being male breast cancer free and said he’d always be “The Catman” in and out of make-up. Ace said he wrote a speech but said his sunglasses weren’t prescription so he couldn’t read it. He went on to discuss his sobriety and the need to educate people about addiction since they think it has to do with will power. Ace said to them, “Try using will power when you have diarrhea.” Paul used his stage time to say how the people should have more of a say in who gets into the Rock Hall since the people are the ones who buy tickets, not the ones who nominate.

Art Garfunkel inducted Cat Stevens, also known as Yusuf Islam.

In his speech, Yusuf said, “I never thought I’d be on the same stage as Kiss.” He also said the decision to induct him into the Rock Hall was a brave one because he doesn’t drink, he doesn’t throw TVs out windows and the only woman he sleeps with is his wife. He said that because of that, the decision was rock and roll. Cat then performed “Wild World” and “Peace Train.”

The Eagles’ Glenn Frey inducted his former bandleader, Linda Ronstadt,

Carrie Underwood, Emmy Lou Harris and Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks and Sheryl Crow all performed Ronstadt’s tunes.

Bruce Springsteen inducted The E Street Band

E Street Band get the Award for  Musical Excellence, which used to be called “The Sidemen Category,” but when the E Street members were called sidemen, Bruce said it was a “misnomer if there ever was one.” The Boss spoke about how each original member came to the band and he paid special tribute to late saxophonist Clarence Clemons. He went on to say his one regret of the night is that Clarence and late organist Danny Federici couldn’t be there. Bruce also spoke highly of his bandmate and wife, Patti Scialfa.

About the group as a whole, Bruce stated, “Real bands are made from the neighborhood,” adding, “I told a story with the E Street Band that was and is bigger and better than the story I could’ve told on my own.” Each member of the group then gave a lengthy acceptance speech. Clemons’ widow, Victoria, said in hers, “He was known as the Big Man for many reasons.” The crowd hooted and she bashfully said, “You guys are so bad.” She then played a snippet of him singing that Clarence recorded on his phone while alone in his car. After 40 minutes of speeches, Bruce and the band played, what else, “The E Street Shuffle.” They followed that up with “The River” and “Kitty’s Back.”

Hall & Oates, Rock n Roll Hall of Fame induction (Andy Kropa/Invision/AP)

The Roots’ Questlove inducted Hall & Oates,

“Underneath it all, they were soul artists” said Questlove.  “Hall and Oates will cure any known illness.” He then referred to the Hall as the Rock and Roll Hall and Oates of Fame. When Daryl Hall and John Oates came up to accept the award, they referenced the long E Street Band speeches saying, “Lucky for you, there’s only two of us.” Daryl went on to say, “Do you know we’re the only homegrown Philadelphia band that’s in the Hall of Fame? I don’t say that because I’m proud of it, I say it because it’s fed up,” and he listed some Philly artists the Hall has overlooked. They then started to play “She’s Gone” but bad feedback made it so that Hall couldn’t hear and he stopped the song. He joked that Springsteen blew out the monitors. They started the tune again with better luck then did “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” and “You Make My Dreams Come True.”

Nirvana induction Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Charles Sykes/Invision/AP)

R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe took the stage to induct Nirvana.

In his speech, Stipe said, “Nirvana tapped into a voice that was yearning to be heard.” He went on to say, “The idea of America – that hopeful idea – had been dismantled. But with their music, Nirvana blasted through all that with crystalline, nuclear, rage-infused fury.” Drummer Dave Grohl was the first to speak, thanking the four Nirvana drummers who came before him. He also thanked his mom for letting him “listen to some pretty fd-up st.” Dave went on to tell aspiring musicians not to look at posters of their idols and say, “Fk, I could never do that,” rather to think, “F*k, I’m going to do that.” Bassist Krist Novoselic was next. He wished Kurt was there, calling Cobain an intense artist who really connected with a lot of people. Kurt’s mother then briefly remarked, teary-eyed, “I just miss him so much, he was such an angel.” Then, Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love, emotionally said how much she wished Kurt could be there. She hugged his bandmates and added, “Tonight, he would have really appreciated it. I just want to give this to our daughter Francis Bean, who couldn’t be here because she was ill.” The band then performed “Smells Like Teen Spirit” with Joan Jett on vocals, marking the first time they performed the song with a singer since Kurt’s death. Next up, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon took on vocals for “Endless Nameless,” then St. Vincent sang “Lithium” and Lorde performed “All Apologies.”

· Often times there is a jam at the end of the Induction Ceremony and there were rumors that some rockers would play AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell,” but for one reason or another, the show ended after Nirvana’s set.

Check it out yourself May 31st when it debuts on HBO.

The first weekend of 92ZEW and Bud Light’s Countdown to Hangout Festival was a little wet, but splendid nonetheless for us true music fans.The Mowgli's 92ZEW Countdown to Hangout Free Concert Series Apr 6 2014  (Michele Stancil, MCSPix),

The Mowgli’s sunshiney attitude and sounds appeared to keep the rain at bay (heavy downpours were predicted, however, the sun arrived and the rain left for a beautiful night of great tunes. Everyone sang along with ‘Say It, Just Say It’ and of course their big hit ‘San Francisco’.  Yep, we were all feelin’ the love, especially when they covered a Hall & Oates’ classic. Too bad I forgot my funky 60′s glasses, striped pants and ruffle shirt.

The band had a little more edge to the indie beach sounds heard on their debut album, which is definitely a better experience than seeing a band that sounds exactly like their album. They brought on the musical feeling of the 60′s Woodstock era (sans the massive crowds rolling in the mud and dancing around bonfires).

In chatting with the So Cal band, they revealed current plans of heading into the studio very soon to record their sophomore album, but are keeping the writing and sound details top secret. They did reveal a timeframe of sometime in the Fall. Katie was looking quite smashing in her 60′s revolutionary outfit too.
Power to the People Mowgli’s.

The bandmembers are: Dave Appelbaum – keyboards and vocals; Colin Louis Dieden – vocals, guitar, percussion; Katie Jayne Earl – vocals and percussion; Josh Hogan – guitar and vocals; Matthew Di Panni- bass guitar and vocals; Spencer Trent – percussion, guitar, melodica, and vocals; Andy Warren – drums, percussion, and vocals

Jack White rolls out his second solo LP, Lazaretto, on June 10 and of course, the crafty vinyl lover reveals the limited edition vinyl will be the most unique Vault project yet for Thirdman Records/Columbia.

Posted by: Lee Ann Camp

Scroll down to watch and listen to the ‘lyric video’

 

Jack White 'Lazaretto' album cover

Jack White’s second solo album ‘Lazaretto’ is out June 9 with a unique vinyl release as well.

It’s no secret that I’m probably one of the biggest Jack White junkies in the deep South. A lotta south Alabamers became fans after seeing his wickedly out-of-the-box set at Hangout Festival, so I may have lost the title. Nevertheless, I’m happy to report the first sip of Jack’s upcoming new record is as fine as French merlot, with a side of cinnamon bourbon.  Taste it yourself in the ‘lyric’ video below.

Described as “stormy, delicate, dramatic, volatile, scratchy and velveteen,” Lazaretto inhabits an exciting place in White’s expansive discography and is already being hailed as “classic” by the select few who’ve been privy enough to hear it. Experience a first taste of new music from the album and watch the video for the new instrumental album track “High Ball Stepper”.

In celebration of the new album and their 20th Vault package, Third Man has unveiled their most unique Vault package yet.

The LP for Third Man Records’ Vault package #20 will be the ONLY limited version of Lazaretto to be released. Pressed on split-color blue-and-white vinyl and coupled with exclusive album art, this alternate presentation of the album is both insightful and deserving. Also exclusive to the Vault is a fold-out poster accompanying the album, featuring a classic National Archives photo that serves as a recurrent image throughout the album art.

Unlike the lightning bolt and inverted lightning bolt pressings Third Man did for Jack White’s Blunderbuss, this alternate art and colored vinyl will be the only time ANY variation on Lazaretto will be made. Once subscriptions are closed and records are pressed… that’s it. Don’t sleep. Get in now or regret it later.

The 7-inch includes two early demos of songs that appear on Lazaretto in their completed form. Both “Alone in My Home” and “Entitlement” are solo recordings by Jack White, done while he was in Mexico. Pressed on lustrous blue vinyl and housed in the standard felt-weave, die-cut Third Man Vault 7-inch sleeve, both tracks offer a unique glimpse into the creative process and evolution of a song from it’s original germination to its final delivery.

The bonus item is a lavish 40-page hard bound companion piece book full of lyrics, exclusive musical notations, photos and art from Lazaretto. This is the perfect accompaniment to the listening experience and insight into both the album creation method and some of the inspiration (visual and otherwise) behind it.

In addition to these items, Vault package #20 will also include a linen, letter-pressed postcard with the same eye-popping color separations as evidenced in classic chromatic postcards popular in the first half of the 20th century. Stamps not included.

Subscriptions are open through April 30th, so don’t delay and visit www.thirdmanrecords.com/vault to sign up today.
