Joel Hodgson on Letterman

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

Here’s a blast from the past: A young Joel Hodgson appearing on David Letterman before creating Mystery Science Theater 3000.

No wonder Letterman had him on: they both share some of the same goofy Midwestern sense of humor…

Shoegazer Sunday: Linda Guilala’s “Uroboros”

Sunday, July 16th, 2017

I liked last week’s Linda Guilala track so much I bought the album, so this week’s track is “Uroboros,” which is also off Psiconáutica.

Shoegazer Sunday: Linda Guilala “Monstruo”

Sunday, July 9th, 2017

Here’s Spain’s Linda Guilala (a band, not a woman) with “Monstruo” off their album Psiconáutica, which I might have to pick up, as the tracks strike me as a tasty mix of Shoegaze, classic analog synth and just a dash of 8-bit.

(Hat tip: Sounds Better With Reverb, which seems to have stopped updating after the end of 2016.)

Colin Furze Sets Off an Assload of Fireworks in his Van

To celebrate Independence Day, here’s a crazy Brit setting off an assload of fireworks in his Van:

Shoegazer Sunday: De Montevert “Its alright I’m probably dreaming”

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

This is more Dreampop than Shoegaze, but it’s pretty, so here it is.

I’m guessing De Montevert hails from Sweden, based on email addresses and umlauts.

Shoegazer Sunday: Pie Are Squared’s “36 Degrees on a Saturday”

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

To be honest, this isn’t so much a Shoegaze band as a single guitarist showing how to do shoegaze and performing all the parts himself via mixing, loops and digital Frippitronics.

Shoegazer Sunday: The Octopus Project’s “Sharpteeth”

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

How did I miss The Octopus Project until now? You would think an Austin band with a female theremin player would be right up my alley…

Adam West, RIP

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

Adam West, star of the 1960s TV Batman and later a voice actor playing a lunatic version of himself as Mayor Adam West on Family Guy, has died at age 88.

Though far from my favorite version of the character, the TV Batman was silly fun.

Mainly this post is just an excuse to throw up a few random videos:

Shoegazer Sunday: Yellow Fang’s “Selfish”

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Been a while since we did some Asian Shoegaze, so here’s Thailand’s Yellow Fang with “Selfish.”

Flying Goths

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Though I’m tempted to save this for the Halloween season, I’d thought you’d like to see this wonderful, nightmare-inducing flying goth:

There’s a music video for Gothminister’s “Darkside” (lead singer Bjørn Alexander Brem evidently being the model for Goth Guy) intercut with the flying, and you know what? For progressive goth metal, it’s not half bad:

Nice chord progressions, the guy’s actually got good vocal range, and the video is like the 1980s never ended (including all your requisite cheesy heavy metal Satanic tropes).
