Matt Burns
Matt Burns Memorial Show 7/28 at the Burren

Matt Burns had a low key personality. He didn't feel like he had to prove anything...he drummed...and groups in need sought him out. He was at so many shows that he became one of those people you expected to see at shows.

Matt loved the music we loved and often had the musicians' view of what made a group Once he talked to us about the Velvet Underground's Loaded album because a group had played a cover of one of the songs. The next day we had to pull it out and give it a close listen.

Ducky CarlisleThe Matt Burns Memorial Show is coming up at The Burren in Somerville on Sunday July 28 from 7 to 12pm.

Here are the list of musicians playing: Frank Rowe, Larry Newman , Spike, Captain Easychord w/Schlemiel, Kenne Highland's Air Force, Classic Ruins ,Crow Follow, The Reverend Joseph Fagan and his Deacons of Love, Vogon Poets and Shiny Beasts.

Ducky Carlisle died in October of 2023. He was a drummer and a multiple Grammy award winner for his recording and engineering. After his death there were fond stories told by many musicians that had played with Ducky and recorded at his studio. Now, some of those musicians will be at the We Love Ducky Tribute show at the Brighton Music Hall on August 11. The list of acts is long... Barrence Whitfield, Mike Viola, Flashcubes, Sal Baglio, The Figgs, Air Traffic Controller, Corin Ashley, Jim Janota, Anthony Kaczynski, Nat Freedberg, Emily Grogan and many more. Tickets

Mach Bell comic conMach Bell's single “Can’t We All Be Bad” single with the Mach Bell Experience made playlists at over 100 stations!!

How does he celebrate that? With more appearances! He will be at the Plastic City Comic Con in Leominster Ma Hilton Doubletree Hotel on Saturday July 20th. Mach assures us it is air conditioned.

He will have a bunch of his books and records ready for signing including, “an original Thundertrain, Teenage Suicide LP (Jelly Records 1977) on clear vinyl and with the poster!” Here's a link to Plastic City ComicCon for tix and info

Porch Medford's Porch Southern Fare & Juke Joint is closing after 8 years total. They were important during the pandemic. They were one of the first places to have live music.

The Porch, on social media, sited the general bad conditions that are causing other restaurants to close these days. They have a short statement on their Facebook page.

In 2020 John Keegan saw Barrence Whitfield , and Slim Jim and the Mad Cows there. John Keegan saw Diablogato there in 2021. They will be one of the last groups to play there too. Here's an article in the Hoodline website

BOOKS......

Robyn Hitchcock is getting a lot of praise for his new memoir 1967: How I Got There and Why I Never Left. Robyn limits his memoir to just one year. He manages to reveal his essential life threads and his potential future path from what is going on in that year. He received a rave review from author Michael Chabon who is a perceptive and influential reviewer.

Robyn is going to do some in store appearances to promote his book including one at Porter Square Books in Cambridge on August 5. He will be interviewed by Harold Lepidus (from Boston Rock back in the day).

Later in the year Hitchcock will be on a tour playing music and will be at The Winery in Boston on October 29. Tickets! get a signed copy of the book here!


VIDEOS......
Springa SSD

This week the New York Hardcore Chronicles with Drew Stone lands a biggie with Springa, who doesn’t do these sort of things usually.

Springa’s family made all their children learn an instrument. He played a bugle. Springa’s stories of his early years make the case that he had the Springa personality from day one. His musical influences start with Tony Bennett, then Beatles and Stones, Kiss. There’s a quick turn to The Damned. He hated the same lame seventies mellow rock we did. His first live band was Paul Revere and the Raiders then the Who.

Springa was a roadie for years before he was in a band. He spots Mr.Curt of Pastiche as a big influence in his life. He roadied for Real Kids and Willie Loco.

You get the SSD origin story and the band’s philosophy in the early days. Later he tells the story of the pig head he threw around during a Channel show. It’s a packed three hours. Springa is showman and all his stories make a point or have a punch line. It seems like he’s lived three lives. He left with the news that he was writing a book!!

Miracle Blood have a new song and video with “Phenomenon.” The video has the band fleeing from the Walking Dead. There’s real panic in the song. There’s panic in the vid sometimes, but then some of the chase scenes are like the Beatles dodging fans in a Hard Day’s Night. Some of the action is across Harvard Ave from O’Brien’s at the old Pizzeria Regina.

Miracle Blood have been getting noisier and tighter. Now their intensity is way up there. “Phenomenon” and the other side of the digital signal on Bandcamp “Lobotomizer” show all their new strengths. The video for that (above right) is a performance video and that is just about as scary as the horror treatment of “Phenomenon”. Listen to that drummer on “Lobotomizer”. Yikes.

Hollywood Stars

Rum Bar’s The Hollywood Stars are in the flush of their second career with their album Starstruck. They are busy. They now have a video for a song off the album “I Had a Girlfriend”. It’s a performance video that’s nicely done. It’s our first chance to see the guys in action.


RADIO......

Brian Young on Crash Course for the Ravers had two guests on this week. Three members of the ska outfit Double Star. They’ve been together for a while but have been gigging more in this last two years. They tell their story and you get to hear a few songs during the interview.

The other guest was Simon Ritt who has been a regular for a few years on Johnny Thunders birthday. Simon played with Johnny and he has a lot of amazing stories. Jan Collins was in the studio too, she used to work at Trash in Vaudeville in NYC where Thunders used to shop and she has a great story about that. Simon plays a few songs in the studio too.

The interview section of the show is below.

Skybar had Rumble winners The Ghouls in the WMFO studio this last week on his Rising show. The Ghouls have only been together one year and only have one song up on Bandcamp (“Hellbound”), yet they won the Rumble this year. In an unusual origin story the band members pointed to the game Guitar Hero as the thing that got them interested in rock tunes. They also find music on social platforms and the internet leads them to other songs, but what they don’t do is listen to traditional radio. They spread their music more through Spotify and Apple Tunes rather than radio.

They didn’t even know what the Rumble was much before they applied!! They talked a lot about the Rumble experience.

They played new recordings “Pocket of Gold” and “Garfield” which will be part of a larger recording in the fall. Those songs make it clear that The Ghouls will have a higher profile in the future.


PODCASTS.........

Fresh off their Top 100 Glam Rock Tournament last week Elastic Glam was back with a new show this week. There were new songs with Mondo Cosmo's Wild Horses”, KillerStar with “Should’ve Known Better” and Vera Bloom's “Bohemian Junk”. In The Votz’s new glam world of “Fire Up Indigo” you still ‘turn on the radio’ and are on ‘the telephone line’

Sethyspice played some classic glam from Marmalade and Mud. He spun some vintage glam that we missed back in the day with Bobbie McGee singing “Rock and Roll People” Brett Smilley with “Va Va Voom”.

Sethyspice has a great glam thing going on here.

This week’s Sonic Overload had a song that reverberated with us. It was The Cutters from Melbourne, Australia, who had the song “First of Many” that captured a feeling that is very human:

"I used to think I was an individual, I used to think I had style.
I used to think I was an individual, I used to think I had guile.
But I'm the first of many suckers.
I'm as worse as all these fuckers."

Our inner voice tells us all that we are special, but life often proves us otherwise. The Cutters capture that reality.

Sonic Overload allows us to spot groups like Gen Gap from Philadelphia. Their album Hanging Out With Gen Gap has 9 songs and the longest is 1:32. Al played “Scumbag” but they all blast out satisfyingly. What’s great is that the group sound is hard to peg. Is it hardcore or punk? We’re going to post a song that we liked named “Reject”. To hear the whole album go to their Bandcamp page

Al Quint also played a punk set with Penetration, Boomtown Rats and the great X-Ray Specs doing “I’m A Cliché”.

We didn’t know there were bands with names from the world of Devo, they were Uncontrollable Urge and Booji Boys. Al played Devo in a later set because the Duty Now for the Future came out 45 years ago…. as did the Cars Candy-O album and The B-52’s self-titled album.

There was one extra bonus segment of nine songs this week that celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Husker Du’s Zen Arcade album. That album seemed to change the aural landscape when it came out.

Another week with a load of good music!! Al’s been going this for decades. If you want to support the show Al now has a “buy me a coffee” page which makes it easy to donate any amount of money - so do that! You can hear the whole show at http://www.sonicoverload.net/

 

The hardcore scene has been getting lots of attention lately. This week Springa was on the NYHC Chronicles this week and Blowing Smoke with Twisted Rico gets their turn to cross examine Dave Smalley. Dave started with DYS and went on to Dag Nasty, All, and Down by Law.

Dave says he sang in school and church choirs. He was comfortable singing and that set him up for a his career. Dave’s early rock likes were hippie rock like Allman Brothers and Kansas. Later Dave explains these traditional rock influences lead to hardcore groups going metal in the later days.

Dave went to Boston College and was a DJ at WZBC. He met other hardcore fans hanging out in Kenmore Square. It was great hearing Dave giving kudos to the Outlets.

On Radio Warfare this week Tim Livingston did a set of three songs of Boston artists. It started with “Roadrunner” by The Modern Lovers, then to “Mass Ave” by Willie Loco Alexander & the Boom Boom Band followed by “That’s When I Reach For My Revolver” by Mission of Burma. That was three undeniable classics.

Before the Boston songs was “Painting My Face”, nice garage tune by Thee Brinks from France. Here it is on YouTube


NEW MUSIC/CDs......

Here's some great news! - a split EP titled Trash Fest on RumBar with two songs by The Downhauls and two by Duck & Cover.

Both groups will be playing Deep Cuts in Medford, MA on Friday August 2. The songs will be released then but we got a preview.

The Downhauls do “Dragged Down” and “The Tower” The band on these recording sounds so big and expansive. The drums are thundering and the song powers along like a locomotive. It’s all larger than life. This band is arena ready!!

“The Tower” has some awesome guitar work that is half metal. If that last blood curdling scream doesn’t stop you in your tracks, nothing will.

Duck & Cover’s songs are “Girl From Nowhere” and “Help Myself”. It seems much too long since we’ve had some new material from Duck & Cover. They're in fine form here. Their songwriting has always been a step above. These songs have a punk base with all sorts of influences that crop up as you listen. The twin guitar lines are the most obvious but it’s also in the vocals. Talking about vocals there is always Chris’ with its identifiable tone.

“Girl From Nowhere” is such a strong song that sounds like a hit already or that it’s a cover of some hit song you don’t know. There’s so much good guitar work and vocalizing in it. Every time we play it we hear more and more detail in it.

One of our favorite spot is in “Help Myself” where it breaks down at the 2:50 mark and a strong guitar riff in the bass slips in and then there’s some cool drum work and that keeps going till the end. Super!!
