ok, it might not be 'new' [07 Jan 2007|11:44pm]

But, its new to me, and maybe you...

k, here's the skinny.

"Cigarettes and Valentines" was meant to be the follow-up to Green Day's "Shenanigans" from '02, the entire project was scratched when the master tracks were stolen from the studio. Rather than re-record, Green Day instead started over and ended up recording what would become the award-winning album "American Idiot". According to many involved, what had been recorded as "Cigarettes and Valentines" was far inferior to "American Idiot" and lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong called the theft a "blessing in disguise."

Strangely, many believe that the album actually has been released but under the name Money Money 2020 by a band named The Network who may or may not be Green Day in disguise. So, what did I do? I decided to find this album and give it a listen.

Is it a good album?
Yes, two words kids. Devo. Ok, thats one word, but... anyways. The whole album is a nice mix of what we will call 'modern punk'/plunk and early '80s Devo inspired new wave.

It starts off with "Joe Robot," a spectacular off-the-wall combination of synth and ramonesesque punk riffs. Next is "Transistors Gone Wild", is a song that when finally get a feel for, it's over. This is a trend that goes on throughout the whole album...very disjointed music that just drops off kinda leaving the listener with a slight feeling of 'WTF', yet... after a few spins you get a feel for what it is. I won't go on explaining every song, that'd be just silly and you'd lose interest. I will say that no two songs that sound alike on this disc, however they sorta gel together in tone and theme. And by theme, I mean straight-up punk rock with a twist of new wave. songs like "Right Hand-O-Rama" could be construed as simple joke, ala "Longview". However when looked at closer, a commentary on the over-sexed culture that is the American media emerges. "Spike" is a song themed around needing a fix of drugs, and could either be a simple narrative song or if looked at under a different light could be based on the band's history with drug use (by the band, I mean Green Day). And songs like "Roshambo" sound like they are straight off "Kerplunk!".

Is The Network Green Day?
After 3 spins... my personal opinion is that if they are trying to hide their identity on this album, they do it about as well as a trannie with a 5 o'clock shadow and an Adams apple...

If this is in fact "Cigarettes and Valentines", how does it compare to "American Idiot"?
What, do you think I am retarded? Do you think I would take on the biggest album of '05 in a Live Journal review? This is not as good as "American Idiot". My own personal assumption is Billie and the rest may have camped this one up abit after "American Idiot" was half done and decided to release it for shits and giggles. "American Idiot" is by and large the best Green Day album since "Dookie", I won't switch it to a review of either of those, but its safe to say they matured and created something great.

Just as The Network's "Money Money 2020" is.

Songs to listen to?
"Supermodel Robots", The Danzig cover of "Teenagers From Mars", aw heck, the whole album.

it was released in '03.

This is a bit late.

I am jeremy r. hudson.

and thats that.

Went to see Thornley play last night. My 6th time seeing Ian play, and holy geez, this was the best show by far. They just got two new band members...Cale Gontier from Three Days Grace and Eric Paul from Big Sugar. They seriously made a huge difference to the band. My ears are still ringing!! :)

I just legally bought mp3s... [10 Jun 2006|09:18pm]

... it feels so... so wrong. but so good.

what lead me to do that is the freshly formed punk rock super group Osaka Popstar. Formed by John Cafiero, director of the rock-doc made from Marky Ramones hand-held videos, Ramones Raw.

Cafiero on Vocals. Marky Ramone on drums, with old the Misfits bandmate on Jerry Only on Bass. Dez Cadena, also of the Misfits and Black Flag as well, takes Lead Guitar with The Voidoids Ivan Julian bringing in Rythm Guitar.

Hard, fast, fun and old fashioned punk with a twist of anime. They've got tracks on the above webiste and the below myspace profile.

much love kids,

saturday niighht fever! [03 Jun 2006|03:07pm]

[ mood | chirpy ]

so it's saturday night and i'll probably go out tonight with my friends
for this week my going out theme is.. ta-daa!

Change by The Lightning Seeds.
it's an old song that i rediscovered recently, mucho nice.

"The world is full of fools
who never get it right
You don't know what to do
so you do anything you like
[put your foot down and drive]
Oh you're a silly thing
[put your foot down and drive]
You're such a pretty thing
[put your foot down and drive]
You're never going to be like all those fools
You're coming out tonight
There's nothing to lose
You're going to give it all a try
Don't ever change
Don't ever change [never change]
No never change [never change]
Never change
[don't ever change]
The world is full of fools
take wisdom to the wise
And thank your lucky stars
for coming out tonight
[put your foot down and drive]
Oh you're a silly thing
[put your foot down and drive]
You're such a pretty thing
[put your foot down and drive]
When tearful eyes
Are open wide
They're still to blind to see
A change in style
For a little while
Is only make believe
[put your foot down and drive]
Oh you're a silly thing
[put your foot down and drive]
You're such a pretty thing
[put your foot down and drive]
You're never satisfied
So look for something new
There's nothing to hide
And nothing you can do
Oh you fool you've got me started
Oh you fool you've got me started
Oh you fool you've got me started
[Don't you ever change]
Oh you fool you've got me started
[Don't you ever change]"

.. now, share your saturday night theme song!

MEW [02 Jun 2006|10:17pm]

This is bizarre... but intruiging...
Click on the banner below to see a short film with a new MEW song:

A cat walks through a forest, playing a fiddle. A swarm of glutinous, fleshy sea aliens with nipples for eyes come gobbling out of the deep. A column of electric space lightning spasms laser bolts out of the screen. J Mascis with the irises of a devil. Such are the weird, Coleridgian visions that crowd Jonas Bjerre’s nightmares night after night, and varied are the ways he battles them. Some become animations projected onto a backdrop while his band - immense Danish space pop innovators Mew - pick their way through their complex and turbulent soundscapes from skeletal guitar arpeggio to universe-quaking crescendo. Others, like the baseball-capped mini-Durst of ‘The Zookeeper’s Boy’, become the heroes of the poppiest song on 2005’s most boundary shattering new album.

How many of you remember Big Wreck? How many were fans??

If you're having a hard time remembering, listen to "The Oaf (My Luck is Wasted)", and let the memories come flooding back :)

Me...im a die hard Big Wreck fan...so when they broke up, and Thornley emerged, i was ecstatic. It wasnt so much the band itself that i was in love with, it was Ian Thornley's voice that used to get to me. They had one song that was a pretty big hit in its day, called "Blown Wide Open"...and its still, to this day, my favorite song. By FAR!

So, this leads me to the feature of the week (even tho its been about 2 since the last one)...and yes, this is another great Canadian band.

You can check out their website for a taste of their music, or ive also uploaded a few tunes for you:
The Going Rate (My Fix)
The Lies That I Believe

The band is comprised of:
Ian Thornley - vocals, lead guitar
Tavis Stanley - guitar & vocals
Cale Gontier (Three Days Grace) - bass & vocals
Eric Paul (Big Sugar) - drums & vocals

The reason im sucha big fan of these guys, is that ive seen them 5 times live already. I saw Big Wreck for the first time at a big show called EdgeFest back about 9 years ago. Then Big Wreck came back and played with Joy Drop about 4.5 years ago. After that...it was quiet for a while...then 2 years ago, the shows starting coming about 3-4 months apart. I saw Thornley play in October, and then again in April, and then again in July.

Now they're coming back again...its been almost a year, but they revamped their band, added some new tunes, and are ready to release another CD. Im so pumped to see them in a few weeks!!!

Ok, i'll stop ranting now...go listen to them, and lemme know what you think!!
