Classic Day – Wake Up London

With the incoming wave of explosive and volatile music that was about to burst onto the scene in the late 1970’s, among them was Ian Dury. A cascading tank that would not let a simple, life-altering disease of Polio take him off the stage….

Classic Day – Black Gold

With the influence of jazz music on the 1950’s, the influx of largely populated areas of immigrant and minority musicians came a new dissection of genre and quickly changed almost overnight. Dorothy Ashby was a part of that movement with a surprising instrument choice,…

Ω WEEK OF MAC MILLER – DAY TWO Ω

Lounge Act From the Shadow Lounge in modern-day Pittsburgh, to the transformation into the smoke-filled dens of Paris, Larry Lovestein can deliver through it all. Mac Miller has these superpowers behind his creative outreach that covers the balance of smooth touches of saxophone, an…

Classic Day – One Love

The theory of music that follows A Tribe Called Quest is deeply rooted in the way that the production can be easily manipulated into any situation. Whether being played for the car speakers on a highway drive, or at a wedding, to the oldest…

Classic Day – Wild Horses

Often the epicenter of creativity, the 1970’s were an age of strange and developmental times. This was when punk rock would develop, the age of disco would become a dead and deceased breed, and the age of experimentation would take new forms. Country Life…

Classic Day – Train Ride For Disaster

Classic Day – Gored Mess

Laying the ground work on some of the sinister sounds that would come out of Europe, Samael was a heavy influence on early black metal that would span a lifetime of following records. With Samael however, their earliest record of Blood Ritual would be the…

Classic Day – Riding The Rails

Classic Day – Rock N’ Roll Asshole

With one of the sleaziest, disgusting, but also most widely recognized punk rock icons in American history; GG Allin whether the public likes it or not, was a force to the foundation of mainstream punk music. While his career never saw anything past the underground,…
