Happy Birthday, Michael Stipe.
The Vandals - “Oi To The World”
Oi To The World, 1996
Merry Christmas from Trent Reznor.
Happy Birthday to Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam, Hovercraft, two hours of recording himself moaning in pain from some kind of stomach ailment and calling it the Into The Wild soundtrack). Here at Break Up Your Band we prefer to remember you in the good old days and we will give you a day of absolution from Yield.
Scott Weiland - “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”
As a teenager, I idolized Scott Weiland and poured over every bit of Stone Temple Pilots information I could find. That being said, everything about this song and video is a nightmare.
Sorry I have been neglecting this blog for a while. Here is a Spotify playlist of some of my favorite songs from 2012.
The Locust Live at Zed Records, 1995. Line-up includes Jimmy LaValle on keyboards.
A new Guided By Voices song surfaced on the Rolling Stone website today so here’s their first national television appearance, on the Jon Stewart Show in 1995, playing “King and Caroline” from Alien Lanes. In the time it took me to write this post Robert Pollard wrote two new GBV albums. Not songs, albums.
