    I wish I could tune in every Sunday night to Little Steven's Underground Garage. I taped his show last night on Q107 and it was awesome (as usual- that man has the greatest taste in music).

    Last night's show was all about "the Girls of Summer", songs about Mamie van Doren, Nancy Sinatra, etc.
    What a great show to listen to with a few cold ones.
    You're the man, Steven!
    Best radio show on earth...

    He even had plugs from Maria Bartaromo (with Joey Ramone song!) and Catwoman Julie Newmar.
    CLASS...

    classic 60's track

    My favorite song by the Zombies: "Tell Her No"
    I love when his voice picks up on the second verse:
    "I know she's the kind of girl who'll throw my love away..."
    Greatness.
    The Zombies were BOSS.

    Here are two rarely-listened-to-anymore tracks, 2 covers of amazing Beatles songs, one by Peter and Gordon, the other by Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas.

    Mr. Neil Young has never won a Grammy.
    But today it was annouced that in January 2010 he will be honored for his 40+ years of genius.

    About fucking time.
    The man is a Canadian music Legend.
    I'm still in shock that he's never won a single Grammy.
    Grammys don't mean much anyway.
    Henry Rollins gave his away.

    Bought a ticket to see The Cult on Sept. 14th at Massey Hall.
    Can't wait. I love the Cult. Mystical rock, Man..

    It will be a show right smack in the middle of TIFF.

    What does Revolution mean

    'Love' LIVE
    THE CULT at Massey Hall


    Greatest concert I've ever seen.
    And I've seen a few, brotha.
    (EDIT: THE STOOGES show at NXNE 2010 has eclipsed the Cult show for me. That's the truth.)


    I've never been inside Massey Hall until last night (Sept. 14/09).
    It is an amazing place, with an amazing historical vibe.
    It's considered Canada's Royal Albert Hall, with a vast array of artists and bands who've claimed to play there.
    If you play Massey Hall, chances are you're pretty damn good at what you do.

    The show began at around 8pm, with opening local act LIONESS, a three piece, with a sultry, sexy black female singer whose name I don't know and who can wail like Grace Slick and has a beautiful afro. She was dressed in a black top with frills and black skin-tight spandex pants. She was very hot and a great, great singer.
    She was accompanied by a drummer and guitarist, who came out with skull masks on. The drummer also had one of those lighted t-shirts, that blink. He could pound those drums like a warrior...
    Great drumming. I'd never heard of this group, but it was powerful, psychedelic and it fit in well with the vibe of the CULT.
    I can see why they approved of them to open for them.
    They got loud applause and I'm sure sold a few CD's.
    (I didn't buy one but maybe I should have).

    The Cult made us wait in tension-filled excitement for about 45 minutes while their stage was set up. Their crew were wicked fast, but it still took 45 minutes to set it all up, complete with huge big screen to project their backdrop films, which were so awesome I can barely describe it.
    9:30 they hit the stage.

    Ian Astbury doesn't get the recognition he should.
    He is one of the greatest singers/frontmen in the history of rock.
    His voice can bring down the walls of Jericho, if you ask me.
    Just listen to the track he did with Tony Iommi and Brian May of Queen called "FLAME ON"- it's one of my fave tracks of all time.
    Just deadly-ass awesome.

    They played the whole 'LOVE' album and then some.
    Some tracks from 'ELECTRIC' and "BORN INTO THIS' as well.
    Billy Duffy is a guitarist who even Jimi Hendrix would probably say has serious chops. No shit man, I'm telling you, he absolutely shredded up there. He blew peoples' minds. Mine included.
    You just stand back in awe that he can still wield that axe the way he does...pushing 30 years since they began as "SOUTHERN DEATH CULT".
    The whole band are tight as fuck. (Probably because this show was right in the middle of the tour, the only Canadian date- they are POLISHED MAN!). The drummer John T. was a workhorse. I was amazed at his skill and stamina. I kept thinking "holy shit, they are going to conquer Europe after this?! How does he fucking do it?" The first show in Europe is Portugal.

    What I really loved was the presence the Cult had up there.
    As soon as they came out, the whole building rose to it's feet.
    They had to.
    Serious fans were there, and they were in the front. They stood up immediately, and everybody else had to follow suit. I know for a fact that a lot of these soft, pudding belly peeps in the rear would've loved to have stayed sitting, sipping their beers.

    But they were at a fucking rock concert and they should've gotten off their asses. Ian at one point mid-way through the set looked up at the left balcony and saw some people sitting down and said "Get the fuck out of your seats, you lazy bastards! Jesus FUCKING Christ! This is Acid Rock!" and he also laid into the fuckheads who kept taking cell phone pictures:
    GET RID OF YOUR FUCKING PHONES! Fucking men with their fucking cell phone cameras....

    The films shown on the backdrop were surreal, psychedelic and absolutely beautiful. Colored images and juxtapositions, flowing on and on, through the whole set. Indians...horses...clips from Kurosawa's Seven Samurai...it was incredible. The best film montage I've seen. Best film of TIFF. Period.
    Fuck all those industry wankers!
    Fuck 'em all!
    I saw Legends.

    Back to the front!!! You will do/What I say/When I say....

    Saw Metallica last night at the Air Canada Centre.
    Sold out.
    Holy Mother of God what a concert.
    I'm too hung over to write anything decent about it except to say that I felt that I was at a battle cry of gigantic proportions.
    I've never been in a crowd that large before- with so many people into it. The music was sheer power, delivered with mighty chops. I had a fairly crappy view of the stage (for a $90 ticket that sux)--- I couldn't see the faces of the band members, just their bodies.
    Oh well, I was there and it seems unreal...


    You've reached the end of the LINE.
