Twas announced today that BLACK SABBATH are putting together a final run! It'll come to KC in February at the Sprint Center. Damn near 50 years, NINE different vocalist and a whole hell of a lot of memories!
ADAM RAY was today's 4:20 Smoke Break! Great up-and-coming comedian! Enjoy his bit!
Every now and again I'll get some jams that I think sound pretty solid and want your opinion on.
First up is a band out of Ireland, DISSOLUTES, with "Fight or Flight". These guys sound like the kinda bluesy-dirty-throw down band I would love to catch in action.
Next up is a band which I've known about for a while, PARKWAY DRIVE, and their latest track, "Vice Grip", is getting a lot of attention and airplay.
Today's 4:20 Smoke Break was brought to us by JAKE WEISMAN. Pretty funny dude, this bit is titled "Clinically Depressed". The end part is NSFW so act accordingly!
Tis New Music Friday my friends!! Here's a breakdown of what's out today:
MAD SEASON although LAYNE STALEY & bassist JOHN BAKER SAUNDERS have passed on former MS band mates BARRETT MARTIN & MIKE MCCREADY are keeping the music alive and today "Sonic Evolution" comes out. And Martin & McCready brought some serious players and friends to round out the experience with the Seattle Symphony; Vox: CHRIS CORNELL, JEFF ANGELL (WALKING PAPERS) & KIM VIRANT (LAZY SUSAN). Other special guests include MATT CAMERON, STONE GOSSARD & JEFF AMENT (all from TEMPLE OF THE DOG & PEARL JAM with Cameron also being part of SOUNDGARDEN). Saxophonist SKERIK and ALICE IN CHAINS'SEAN KINNEY. Finally out on CD & Vinyl, "Sonic Evolution".
MOTORHEAD with "Bad Magic" featuring their rendition of THE ROLLING STONES "Symphony for the Devil
AUDIOTOPSY "Natural Causes" formed out of the release of GREG TRIBBETT from HELLYEAH. Lead single is "The Calling" and it comes out sounding a little flat.
SOILWORK "The Ride Majestic" I've yet to be disappointed by them. 13 tracks, 59 minutes. Let's do this!
AND I almost forgot but NIRVANA'S "Best of" came out today on vinyl!

Caught this the other day and DAMN is it good!! Make certain it's sped up to 1.25. For some reason the speed was reduced upon its uploading. There's no way to top what the ROLLING STONES did but MOTORHEAD does a damn good job!
AMY SCHUMER will be part of the ODDBALL FESTIVAL tomorrow and she was today's 4:20 Smoke Break of Stand Up Comedy.
Gotta hand it to these porn stars, they can really take the mean Tweets lobbed their way!!
The number one rule of squirrel fight club is you don't talk about squirrel fight club! MOOSE regaled me with a tale of witnessing a squirrel fight recently, which prompted me to look up "Squirrel Fights" on YouTube. Hilarity ensued!
Look! You guys all know I'm a fan of DAVID ERIC GROHL aka DAVE GROHL but I fear we're starting to get into that over saturation place again. Right where we were when he fell of the stage and broke his leg. Yes, he and the rest of the FOO FIGHTERS "Rick Rolled" them. And it was great! Not as good as the "Keep It Clean" trolling but solid none-the-less. Yes, he stated that they play long ass shows and these younger bands need to step up their game! *News Alert - same shit was said four years ago! But now there's a "News report" that he chugged a beer on stage with a guy who turned 50 ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz............... What happened? Oh, I fell asleep typing this because... well... just give it a rest. Let the Foo do what the Foo do in concert and leave it there. In that magical place where those that experienced it can hold onto those memories and not have those images forced upon us because of smart phones.
(Stepping down off soap box)
JEFF ROSS was today's 4:20 Smoke Break of Stand Up Comedy. He's another comedian we'll see Friday for the Oddball Comedy Festival!
Happy National Dog Day!! Here's the loveable lads from PSYCHOSTICK and their ode to dogs, "Dogs Like Socks"!
