  1. New Welsh band called Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard
  2. I did love his acoustic album Wooden Heart, Volume 2, acoustic versions of some of my favorite Waite songs. I love that version of Downtown. Although I'm not fond of this version of Missing You.
  3. The first side of the Union Jacks LP is one of my favorite album sides ever. I almost never played Side 2.
  4. From their forthcoming Citizens of Boomtown album, their first new album in 36 years. Sounds like they never left.
  5. https://deadline.com/2019/09/dark-shadows-cw-warner-bros-television-barnabas-collins-mark-b-perry-dan-curtis-1202729676/
  6. The CW network is developing Dark Shadows:Reincarnation, a continuation of DS in the present day. Co-produced by oné of Dan Curtis' daughters. I'm really hoping it makes it, as I'll need a new TV addiction when Supernatural ends this May.
  7. The answer is Mike Love. He has no competition for this honor. And I am a huge Beach Boys fan.
  8. I met him at the 2006 convention in Brooklyn. We were seated at the table next to his at the banquet. He was so friendly and treated us like we were old friends. All the actors were great, but he and Chris Pennock stood out. And Karlen was the only one who seemed to be their just to enjoy himself while everyone else had books or other merchandise to sell.
  9. Although I personally prefer his second album Illiterature to World So Bright.
  10. I love Adam Schmitt's first 2 albums, although this isn't the track I'd pick from his first record. He's from Champaign and I'd seen him with a couple local bands in the mid-eighties, then he joined the Elvis Brothers for a couple years before getting his solo record deal. He's still in town as a record producer for indie label Parasol Records.

  13. I'm going to see Tom Petty's 40th Anniversary tour next Wednesday.
  14. That was awesome. I've seen the Looking For The Magic clip before but not the rest of it. I never realized Phil Seymour sang lead on Twilley Don't Mind. A lot of talent on that little stage.
  15. I loved Angel, especially the first two albums. Also enjoyed Guiffria.
  16. 1st solo album comes out Oct. 14.
  17. Good, fun band. I saw them a couple times in the 90s. The second time(with Duran Duran and the Cure), McGrath had his leg in a cast and performed on a couch at center stage.

  19. This one's was written by Rivers Cuomo(Weezer)
  20. This does have an XTC feel but to me it sounds more like a Colin song than one of Andys.
  21. He was one of the few who could do it all and do it all brilliantly.
