Bring the Noise (by Flatbed Truck) - DCist
Topic: Music 3:37 pm EST, Nov 18, 2009

Public Enemy has turned public friend #1 for their performance in the District. Tomorrow night, Long Island Music Hall of Fame inductees, rap-rock progenitors, and occasional television mugs Chuck D and Flavor Flav are playing GW's Lisner Auditorium – where you can advance to the front of the house for the price of admission plus a winter coat. If that deal's not enough, you can also catch PE playing on a flatbed truck as, starting at about 7:45 p.m., it winds its way from 18th & G Streets NW to the Lisner a few blocks away. The Post's Chris Richards notes PE's route, rendered above in glorious Googlemap.

What can possibly be said about this?

R.I.P. Les Paul
Topic: Music 1:17 pm EDT, Aug 13, 2009

Les Paul, whose innovations with the electric guitar and studio technology made him one of the most important figures in recorded music, has died, according to a statement from his publicists. Paul was 94.

Paul was a guitar and electronics mastermind whose creations -- such as multitrack recording, tape delay and the solid-body guitar that bears his name, the Gibson Les Paul -- helped give rise to modern popular music, including rock 'n' roll. No slouch on the guitar himself, he continued playing at clubs into his 90s despite being hampered by arthritis.

R.I.P. Bo Diddley
Topic: Music 2:45 pm EDT, Jun  2, 2008

Bo Diddley, a founding father of rock 'n' roll whose distinctive "shave and a haircut, two bits" rhythm and innovative guitar effects inspired legions of other musicians, died Monday after months of ill health. He was 79.

Diddley died of heart failure at his home in Archer, Fla., spokeswoman Susan Clary said. He had suffered a heart attack in August, three months after suffering a stroke while touring in Iowa. Doctors said the stroke affected his ability to speak, and he had returned to Florida to continue rehabilitation.

Black Francis - Bluefinger
Topic: Music 1:51 pm EDT, Sep 20, 2007

On September 11th 2007, something happened that will change Rock n' Roll forever. A watershed moment of sorts occurred. Charles Thompson (aka Frank Black) resumed using his original pseudonym, Black Francis, and released what is likely the most important album of the past several years.

Bluefinger is just amazing. It's a return to the style Thompson made famous with The Pixies. It sounds like the album you'd expect Thompson to have made after The Pixies, more so than the work he did as Frank Black with The Catholics.

Thompson's solo work as Frank Black is straight up rock n' roll, with ventures into country and alternative. His new solo work as Black Francis is a return to a style more similar to that of The Pixies or Nirvana. It's raw, loose, driving, punk influenced alternative rock. It's not over-produced. It sports a sound that you can only get when you put away the polish and focus on the intensity. It's like a breath of fresh air.

Almost everyone I know has been listening to this album the past week. If you are not listening to it, you should be. Get on the band wagon. You can listen to the entire album from the website. Go go go..

Slashdot | Trent Reznor Says 'Steal My Music'
Topic: Music 8:12 pm EDT, Sep 17, 2007

"A few months ago, Trent Reznor (frontman of the band Nine Inch Nails), was in Australia doing an interview when he commented on the outrageous prices of CDs there. Apparently now his label, Universal Media Group is angry at him for having said that. During a concert last night, he told fans, '...Has anyone seen the price come down? Okay, well, you know what that means — STEAL IT. Steal away. Steal and steal and steal some more and give it to all your friends and keep on stealin'. Because one way or another these mother****ers will get it through their head that they're ripping people off and that's not right.'"

There was a discussion on MemeStreams about Reznor's distaste for record prices a few months ago..
