Mike Gordon Pays Homage to Bruce Springsteen, The Statue

first_imgMike Gordon has shown his love for fellow American rock idol Bruce Springsteen, snapping a picture of himself laying his lips on the cheek of the star’s bust in Princeton. The statue, which now resides outside Larini’s Service Center and gas station at the corner of Alexander and Faculty Roads, was sculpted by local resident Steve Zorochin based on shots of “The Boss” singing ‘One Trick Pony’ in the movie The Wrestler.Zorichin, who grew up in Princeton, created and titled the sculpture based on Springsteen’s passion for using his art to help people. And now, thanks to Zorichin’s tribute, as well as Gordon’s affectionate photo, the statue has been featured in a new book titled Rock Atlas USA: The Musical Landscape of America, making Princeton part of legendary rock music history.[Via Town Topics]last_img read more

Highlights And Photos From The Disco Biscuits At Best Buy Theater, Night One 12/29/14

first_imgLast night started what has become an annual New Year’s run at NYC’s Best Buy Theater for the Disco Biscuits. After two solid showing in Chicago at the Concord Music Hall, the band was primed and ready to go. Taking the stage and playing a little bluesy ditty to get started, the band went right into “Bernstein & Chasnoff,” which had a great outro jam that led into a “Voices Insane” bustout (it’s only been played twice this year, and seen a serious decline in show appearances the last five years) that was super funky. “Pilin’ It Higher” brought an overall increase in room temperature, as beads of sweat began to form on many bodies. The age old saying IS right!Second set was solid. Anytime “I-Man” makes an appearance, it typically signals a good time. Especially when it is sandwiched between “House Dog Party Favor.” I’ll take one of those, please and thank you! “Catalyst” received a warm welcome from the crowd, and ended the second set properly. A “Spy” encore led into the ending of “November Rain” (similar to the November 24th, 2006 Hammerstein show).Oh, and then then Tractorbeam at BB King’s happened. Yeah….about that. Straight extra filthy, lyric-less Biscuits. Super fun to see them throw down at BB’s once again, and the set was fire. Didn’t let up from start to finish, and people got down hard, with a setlist that consisted of “Ladies>Orch Theme>Tricycle>Ladies,” bookended by “Confrontation.”See you back out there tonight.Monday, December 29, 2014I: Bernstein & Chasnoff-> Voices Insane-> Pilin it Higher-> M.E.M.P.H.I.S.-> Tempest-> Bernstein & ChasnoffII: Uber Glue-> House of Dog Party Favor-> I-Man-> House Dog Party Favor-> CatalystE: Spy-> November RainTractorbeam BB King’s Setlist:I: Confrontation-> And the Ladies Were the Rest of the Night-> Orch Theme-> Tricycle-> Orch Theme-> And the Ladies Were the Rest of the Night-> Confrontation All Photos: Andrew Andrew Scott Blackstein Photographylast_img read more

Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad Explore Folk Roots On New Album

first_imgFollowing the tremendous success of their most recent album Steady (which debuted at #1 on the Billboard reggae chart), East Coast roots-reggae tour-de-force Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad have just released a new Americana roots-themed album entitled Bright Days, out May 18th on Easy Star Records.Like Steady, Bright Days was also recorded at Rear Window Studio in Brookline, MA, again with the incredibly well-respected reggae producer Craig “DubFader” Welsch (10 Ft. Ganja Plant) at the helm.    Milt Reder, the owner of Rear Window Studio, also influenced the direction of the record heavily, playing guitar throughout. Reder has a long history in the business as a player, producer and songwriter, having worked with Susan Tedeschi, Bo Diddley, and others.  Singer-bassist James Searl remarked that Reder helped guide GPGDS to accomplish their goal of recording songs that had never been rehearsed or worked out previous to the studio session, noting that “When Milt plugged in his guitar and began to play, we realized that the session was serious and special.”Bright Days features nine original songs that span the musical landscape from American Beauty-era Grateful Dead sounds (the title track), to early American folk music via Bob Dylan and Neil Young (“It Won’t Be Long”) and even to some good ol’ Southern country-blues inspired tunes such as “Good to You.”Other notable guests featured are G. Love on harmonica on “Humboldt County Gold,” an herb-inspired honky-tonk tune which beautifully incorporates G. Love’s harmonica with muddy, bluesy guitar lines and soulful harmonies which permeate the album. Not to be left unmentioned is the impressive work of renowned mandolin player Eric Robertson (The Boston Boys) on “Good To You,” “War Machine,” and “Atabey,” the latter being an exceptionally uplifting instrumental.All in all, while Bright Days might not feel as “cohesive” as Country (2012), the entire album invokes deep feelings of struggle, perseverance and nostalgia for simpler times, which all feel extremely relevant now with the unfortunate passing of B.B. King, whose blues music has invoked those same feelings for generations of people, both past and present.Whatever reservations critics might foster towards a reggae band exploring elements of bluegrass, folk, country and Americana-roots, GPGDS have surely silenced them once and for all with this most recent offering.  Bright Days showcases the band’s immense appreciation for all of these styles, and the band’s ability to incorporate all of them into one album makes this the perfect soundtrack for a lazy Sunday river float or a hot summer night by the fire with good friends.-Mark McGwin @markmcgwinYou can order the album and get more information on the band via their official website.

Jackie Greene Leaves Trigger Hippy

first_imgDespite playing a pivotal role in the band’s formation, guitarist Jackie Greene has announced his departure from the rock and roll collective, Trigger Hippy. The group, comprised of Black Crowes’ drummer Steve Gorman, singer Joan Osborne, bassist Nick Gorvik and guitarist Tom Bukovac, will certainly miss Greene’s unique style and stage presence.Citing his solo career for the decision, Greene offers his Hippy companions all the best. Greene will release his first solo album in five years, Back To Birth, on August 21st. Here’s his message, posted to his Facebook page, below:It’s been a great pleasure playing with a Trigger Hippy the past few years, but I must call it quits. My first album in five years is right around the corner and I must focus my attention on that. I am no longer a member of Trigger Hippy.I will not be at the Full Tilt Boogie Festival in VT, but I’m sure it will be a great time and I sincerely hope everyone enjoys themselves.Thanks to all who came out and supported us over the past few years, we really appreciate it.We’re wishing Jackie Greene and Trigger Hippy all the best![Photo via Greg Horowitz]last_img read more
