Nerd Table: CHASING THE BRONCO!


Columbus Legends, Nerd Table, made a new album called CHASING THE BRONCO!
There are so many guests on this album, even Ron Jeremy!!!
Former members of Nirvana, Aaron Burckhard and Dale Crover, helped to make a special track "Floyd The Barber", which is a Nirvana song.
You can listen to it on their website.

I am grateful to also be a part of this album, playing guitar and keyboard on two songs.
For the release date and other info, check http://www.nerdtableonline.com/.

This is not my first time working with Nerd Table. Deaf Nephews, Dale and I, produced their previous EP Nut To Nut. I also played a guitar solo on their signature song "Tape Of Me" from the album Aqua Vulva.

You don't know anything about bands from Ohio if you don't know Nerd Table!!!

Counterfeit Melvins Houdini


From Melvins' Facebook.
______________________

(the) Melvins

Hey Folks, some douche bag out there has made over 5000 counterfeit RED vinyl "Houdini" records (there was no red edition), and is passing them off as real for big bucks. These are fakes. Aside from sounding like complete crap they are made with the sole intention of ripping off you guys, as well as the band. Anyone that can give us the name of the scum bag making them, we will take care of mightily. Don't go off on stores, eBayers, online shops as they were likely ripped off as well. Please tell anyone trying to sell it, that it's a fake/counterfeit, as they might not know. We only want the scumbag that's pressing 'em!

HELMET東京公演

先日、PageからLAを発つ前日に、”なんでチャップリンが日本の千円札に載っているんだ?”とくだらないメールが入って来た。空港に向かう途中からもメールが入って来た。15年ぶりの日本にかなり興奮しているようだ。

今晩、9月13日がその日。ライブに対してのその彼らの自信は嫌と言うほど聞かされた。一度だけしか観た事がないが、その言いっぷりは決して大袈裟なものではなく、正直、圧倒された。そんな彼らのライブを是非観て欲しい。

詳細。

Synesthesia Mandala

I had a meeting with my old friend, Vince DeFranco, at his office last week. Vince has been making Synesthesia Mandala drums for years. The drums have been Danny Carey's secret weapons for live and recording. He showed the depth of the drums and their software "Virtual Brain". The drums are not typical drum pads. It's hard to explain, check them out and find out what the drums do at http://synesthesiacorp.com/.



I have been learning about the software since the meeting. Since I am not a drummer, I use this software some different purposes. Vince gave me some tips and some modifications to me!!! This would be my secret weapon, soon.

Big Business – “Always Never Know When To Quit” (Stereogum Premiere)

From: stereogum

Cheeky Melvins/Karp/Murder City Devils/White Shit/etc-associated sludge-rock heroes Big Business are celebrating the late 2010 addition of fourth member, guitarist Scott Martin of Crom/400 Blows, and upcoming tour with aesthetic allies Torche by following 2009′s Mind The Drift with the Quadruple Single 12″ EP on their very own, recently launched new label Gold Metal. As the EP’s title suggests, it’s four songs, each strong enough to be its own single. Get a taste via mighty opener “Always Never Know When To Quit.”

Big Business – “Always Never Know When To Quit”
“Quadruple Single” tracklist:

01 “Always Never Know When To Quit”
02 “Ice-Cold War”
03 “City Ham”
04 “Guns”

Quadruple Single is out 7/26 via Gold Metal. For the upcoming tour Martin will be handling the guitar, the quartet acting like a power trio again. Other guitarist Toshi Kasai will be elsewhere:

After a long talk where the Biz stayed up all night crying, Toshi decided that he needed to stay home and honor some recording obligations. They wish he could come, but they’ll be sure to do something creepy to acknowledge his absence like leave his guitar on stage with a fog machine blowing ethereal smoke at it’s base, implying that Toshi is playing with them from another realm. They’re probably too lazy to pull that off, but Toshi wishes Coady, Jared, and Scott a safe trip anyway.

The dates:

07/07 – Houston, TX @ Walter’s on Washington *
07/08 – Baton Rouge, LA @ Spanish Moon *
07/09 – Birmingham, AL @ Bottletree Cafe *

"Toshi Fest," featured the Skivies, with Action Friend and Osyluth

Howard Stern




70年代にデビューし、90年代から現在に渡りトークラジオでもの凄い人気を保っているHoward SternのショーでDaleが電話でインタビューされた。

数週間前、Dave Grohlがゲストでこのラジオショーに出た時、歴代のNirvanaのドラマー、そしてDaleの話が出て非常に盛り上がった。その流れで電話インタビューへと繋がった。

前半は”Nirvanaに何故残らなかったのか?”、”後悔していないのか?”としつこい攻撃にあっていたが、後半はMelvinsを聴いた事なかったHowardが徐々にその”良さ”を分かり始め、なんとなくDaleが取った行動を理解する様子が伝わって来る。ちなみに彼がショーの中で止めたり、かけたりしてるCDは新作の”Sugar Daddy"。一般のインタビューアーが聞いたら悪いような事をズバズバ聞いているのが非常に面白い。

Another Junk Yard Session



I just did another junk yard session. It's been three years since I did one with Peter for Serce. This time, I was with Tommy of Western Mystic. We used the same junk yard as last time. The manager of the junk yard remembered me. Huge cranes and trucks were up and running inside of the yard. So there were restricted areas and he let us use a part of the yard. He also found us some materials, such as a metal pipe and a huge chain, and showed us how to get great noises. We got some great sounds, are going to edit those as samples! You will hear those on songs of Western Mystic!

より。

米のロックバンド、NZと日本で被災記事を印刷する

ロサンゼルスを拠点に活動する米ロックバンド、メルビンズが、最近の大地震を2度も経験していたことが分かった。ロサンゼルス・タイムズ紙によると、先月にライブを行うためにニュージーランドを訪れ、同21日に空港で地震に遭遇。今月は日本公演を行い、東日本大震災が起こった11日は、都内でのライブ直前だった。SNSサイトに「メンバーもクルーも無事」と書き込んだ。(ロサンゼルス=千歳香奈子通信員)

ニュージーランド大地震。

今さっき、家に帰ってネットのニュースを観た。現時点で死亡者が65人いると書いてあったので、現地近くにいるはずのMelvinsの面々に慌てて携帯で連絡を取った所、返事が返って来た。とりあえず皆無事。

バンで移動中だったようだがかなり地震の揺れを感じたそうだ。震源地のChristchurchには地震がおこる一時間前くらいにいたと言う。今は空港で足止めを食らっていると言う。

日本公演には影響はないと思う。彼らだけでは無いが、ミュージシャンとクルーにとってツアーと言うのはいつも事故とは紙一重。自分もツアーに行く事があるので恩義せがましく聞こえるかもしれないが、公演に足を運ぶ人はそう言った事をふまえて彼らを歓迎してもらいたい。
