Dave Caruso : Thanks, Roland! I'll watch for his reply.
Roland Cyr : Seen them many many times and they are always quite good...
Roland Cyr : Hey, Eric! Nice shout out to The Kennedys in the July Jangle On column...
Roland Cyr : Anyway, Dave, Bruce (dudeman) does roam these parts all the time...
Roland Cyr : me neither
Dave Caruso : Maybe someone will contact me...
Roland Cyr : I think you just did!
Dave Caruso : How does a person request a music review up in here?
Goran Johansson : Wish I was there, Bruce! Can imagine a very Heavy sound.
dudeman : Goran, you should have seen these guys live - I saw them around 2000 in NYC and...it was like out of a 50s Godzilla movie. They had these circa 1972 Roxy Music glammy outfits and they trounced around the stage like they were going to swallow up anyone who got near...and the "Soon" material was amazing live, too. Crazy insane.
Goran Johansson : I agree about "Soon", Bruce! Got it from your not lame back in the good old days!
dudeman : JANGLE ON - July column, just poted - «link»
dudeman : LOST TREASURES - remember them from the late 80s?! VELVET ELVIS - just posted - «link»
dudeman : Goran, the best Lollypop Factory for me is "SOON", which came out in 1999, if I recall correctly. It's like a heavy metal combo of Queen and Jellyfish - crazy good!
Goran Johansson : Ok. James. About Lollipop Factory; I have one full length cd, "Away In A Trailer" from 2007 and "Eat Cake EP" from 2010./Goran (Sweden)
Goran Johansson : Hi, James F!
steve gregory : Given the boy Webb's sublime 1971 solo-with-piano version on youtube, how much would the Richard Harris version of "MacArthur Park" have been improved without the John Miles "Music"-kinda bombast?
Drew KNARR : The Wondermints are one of my FAVORITE bands, but I wondered where this song is available? That band just MELTS my BRAIN! (Brian? Brian Brain?)
Todd Bishopp : Is there any info or update on the Jellyfish book by Craig Dorfman?
Kevin Buchanan : Drew - "Do you Have Any Regrets?" is an unreleased Brian Wilson song covered by Darian from Wondermints, who is now the core of BW's touring band.
Drew KNARR : What is the story on Darian's "Do You Have Any Regrets"? HELP!
Roland Cyr : R.I.P. Tommy Ramone, last of the best. Got any vids to throw in here for a tribute Bruce? :
Drew KNARR : LOVE those '70's "PERKY'S"!!!!! We are SO jaded now! There is NO "mystery" anymore! We've seen it ALL!
Roland Cyr : Mouth and MacNeal...a bit bizarre and a bit...perky!
Roland Cyr : ah, more earworm videos...thanks Bruce!
Rhett : Thanks Robert - it looks fun!
Steve Maser : The "Here Comes The Reign Again" Kickstarter is live too: «link»
Rhett : Thanks for the heads up Robert!
Robert : Not sure if people know about this. Matthew Sweet Kickstarter. «link»
Rhett : While I like the Vanity Fare version of this classic song - I think we should also give attention to newer bands as well - such as The Explorers Club who nail Hitchin' A Ride quite well - check it out via youtube: «link»
