Danny Says: Exploring the Life and Times of Danny Fields

Posted August 11, 2015 at 10:16 am

Among those who love punk rock, Danny Fields is a household name. If you don’t know the man, you will (and should) once the new Brendan Toller-directed documentary chronicling his life, Danny Says, hits theaters.

Posted July 27, 2015 at 10:21 am

In case you missed it, and have twelve hours to spare, it’s time turn on KEXP and listen to “Inside Paul’s Boutique.” This past Friday, the Seattle-based radio station assembled a stellar, engaging program that completely dissects (probably) every sample included on the Beastie Boys’ seminal 1989 record. That’s fifteen tracks comprised of more than […]

I Can’t Stop Thinking About ‘Montage of Heck’ and Kurt Cobain

Posted June 16, 2015 at 10:23 am

I should preface this by saying it has nothing to do with the Lower East Side. Instead, let’s travel back in time to a small town in Massachusetts comprised mostly of cranberry bogs and pizza joints. It was April 10, 1994. On that particular Sunday, I found myself waiting for youth group to start at the Methodist church my parents […]

The Muppets ‘Like it Raw’ with ODB Tribute [VIDEO]

Posted June 11, 2015 at 10:22 am

There’s something hilariously unsettling about watching a muppet mouth “Ooh baby I like it raw,” and there’s no denying that the world could do with some more of Jim Henson’s beloved creations. Herewith, another internet gem. This time starring Dr. Teeth as Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and featuring the rest of the Electric Mayhem ensemble, performing “Shimmy […]

Paul Zone’s fleeting photo exhibit in SoHo this past Friday, “Growing Up In the New York Underground,” was my first introduction to his attitude-filled images of rock-and-roll between the years 1971 and 1977. I have seen hundreds of pictures of these music legends. Yet something about walking down a long hallway dotted with pictures, albums, […]

Most of my friends know that I’m a New York City history freak. I’ll probably annoy you when I walk down the street telling you the history of some random tenement on the corner of some random street in the LES. Lately, though, I’ve found myself reading numerous books on the 60s/70s/80s NYC music scene, […]
