Although they are relatively new to Tucson’s growing music scene, Burning Palms are fast becoming the next local export soon be on everyone’s radar. With aesthetic roots in American gothic literature, post punk, and 60’s garage (the band cites influences ranging from Nick Cave to Bauhaus to Patti Smith and even more contemporary punk stalwarts in the late Jay Reatard), Burning Palms tiptoe the threshold of punchy psych-rock and seductive whimsy. Burning Palms’ leading force Simone Stopford (Vox, Guitars) began the band as a solo bedroom project in Sydney, Australia. Her studies led her to the Arizona desert in hopes of becoming a yoga instructor, and upon discovering the area’s vibrant music scene, she decided to stick around and assemble a gang of like minded souls. Stopford found a kindred spirit in Julia Deconcini (Vox/ Percussion) and from there added the other essential pieces to the Burning Palms puzzle.

Doesn’t everyone just love Scorpions? I don’t mean the insectile beasts that sting with their ferocious bite or the Spider-Man villain, but rather the great 70s and 80s rock group that rocked the world with their smooth hooks and catchy tunes. People mostly know them for their later material where they sold their souls for money, but what those poor fools are missing out on is the brilliance of the material when Uli Jon Roth was handling the lead guitar duties. And as such…Virgin Killer.

Someone described the music as “Loud, dark, therapeutic, and rough around the edges” and Anton once said he played “black angst-ridden power pop.” Both quotes sum up Terrible Feelings pretty well. Place their sound somewhere in the wastelands between Wipers, Redd Kross, Ebba Grön and Murder City Devils.Terrible Feelings from Malmö, Sweden have existed since fall 2009.They sprung out of late parties, punk rock, pop, and friendship. The band has to date released three 7”s and one full length album. They’ve embarked on no less than five full European tours and two US tours (one on each coast). They’ve shared stages with bands such as Jeff the Brotherhood, White Lung, Imperial State Electric, Fucked Up, The Raveonettes, and The Babies; and were handpicked by none other than Refused as support in both Europe and Sweden on their final tour.

Radio Birdman and this album in particular are generally considered to be the beginnings of the Australian underground punk movement. However, the band was not only influenced by common punk precursors The Stooges and MC5, but also early Blue Oyster Cult and even the surf bands of the 1960s. The album Radios Appear was groundbreaking in its day and has stood the test of time as a classic album decades later, but it is not what many would think of as strictly Punk Rock. http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/47398/Radio-Birdman-Radios-Appear/

Remember the good old days when thrash spoke to every unhappy degenerate forced to take a piss as Big Brother stood by watching? It was a time when metalheads rose to the occasion, spoke to people better than even our greatest orators, and made a stand against crooked politicians. It was a time when being a rebel stood for something and tearing each other apart in circle pits and walls-of-death was the greatest form of therapy. OK, so that’s not exactly how many remembered the ’80s thrash craze. But, bands like Anthrax, Exodus, Metallica, and Testament spoke to at least one pissed-off kid that used them to fuel his anger. I was that pissed-off kid, even though I didn’t know what I was so pissed off about. Not to mention I didn’t have any reason to be. But, goddammit, I was part of the movement. Even if I had no idea what the fuck that meant either. I guess you just had to be there. And, if you weren’t, feel free to go back to your shoegazing while the rest of the boys and I get on a Power Trip. source: http://www.angrymetalguy.com/power-trip-nightmare-logic-review/

Cypher of 2day------------------------------------------------------------ Pro Era (short for Progressive Era) is an American hip hop collective from Brooklyn, New York. The collective includes, among others, rappers Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly, Kirk Knight, Nyck Caution, Aaron Rose, Dessy Hinds, Dirty Sanchez, Rokamouth, J.A.B. and Jakk the Rhymer, along with producers Chuck Strangers, Powers Pleasant, Bruce Leekix, Hans Solo and Niles. The collective was formed in 2011 by Capital STEEZ and Powers Pleasant, with Joey Bada$$ and CJ Fly among its founding members. Cypher or cipher is an informal gathering of rappers, beatboxers, and/or break-dancers in a circle, in order to jam musically together. The term has also in recent years come to mean the crowd which forms around freestyle battles, consisting of spectators and onlookers. This group serves partly to encourage competition and partly to enhance the communal aspect of rap battles. The cipher is known for "making or breaking reputations in the hip hop community; if you are able to step into the cipher and tell your story, demonstrating your uniqueness, you might be more accepted". These groups also serve as a way for messages about hip hop styles and knowledge to be spread, through word-of-mouth and encouraging trends in other battles.

Ο Coleman Hawkins ήταν αφροαμερικανός σαξοφωνίστας, ένας από τους σημαντικότερους στην ιστορία της jazz. Ήταν αυτός που μετέτρεψε το τενόρο σαξόφωνο σε στάνταρ όργανο της ορχήστρας jazz με τις ηχογραφήσεις στα τέλη της δεκαετίας του ΄30, το "Body and Soul" ήταν μία από αυτές. Ξεκίνησε την πορεία του από την ορχήστρα της blues τραγουδίστριας Mammie Smith, συνέχισε στην big band του Fletcher Henderson όπου και ξεχώρισε με το ιδιαίτερο παίξιμο του. Ταξίδεψε στην Ευρώπη όπου έπαιξε -εκτός των άλλων- και με τον Django Reinhardt στο Παρίσι. Το "Body and Soul" ηχογραφήθηκε το 1939 αμέσως μετά την επιστροφή του από μία μεγάλη περιοδεία στην Ευρώπη.

Οι καλιφορνέζοι Agent Orange ήταν από τους πρώτους που έκαναν την μίξη του punk rock με την surf μουσική, με το πρώτο τους σινγκλ το 1980 το "Bloodstains". Το όνομα τους προέρχεται από το φυτοφάρμακο με διοξίνες που ψέκαζαν οι αμερικανοί στο βιετνάμ. To "To young to die" προέρχεται από τον δίσκο Living in Darkness που κυκλοφόρησαν το 1982. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I didn't expect them to know my name/Surrounding me like a black steel frame/ I saw the world go up in flames/And I just smiled and stood there, watching And it doesn't seem like this is real/That's just the way I feel/I don't know why Well I've learned from my mistakes/This time I will escape/I'm too young to die/ We're all too young to die It doesn't seem like this is real/That's just the way I feel/I don't know why Well I've learned from my mistakes/This time I will escape/I'm too young to die
