The Mystrys

Talking with Ziggy Zapata of The Mystrys

Let’s Talk About Witch Girls! I touched on this excellent slab of Aussie garage punk on my Halloween Nuggets playlist a few years ago (that comp does not appear to be on Spotify anymore, which renders the playlist useless—but you should totally buy the 3-disc set. It’s well worth it!), but it’s time I really… Read More ›

Kissin’ Time: A KISS Valentine Playlist

I love KISS. Joanna got our family tickets to see them on the End of the Road tour this summer. This is all the reason I need to put together a Valentine-themed KISS playlist. Some of these songs are on the nose, some are innuendo, some just have ‘love’ in the title and some are… Read More ›

KISS at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Being thankful for KISS’ performance at the 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

Remember when KISS performed during the 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade? It was awesome. Not because it was a spectacularly good performance or anything. I mean, we’ve all seen them belt out way better versions of “Rock N’ Roll All Nite” than they’re gonna while lip syncing and being dragged along on a float at 11… Read More ›

Music We Love: The Tunes of the ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ franchise

I wanted take a minute to state how much I appreciate the internet when it comes to the music from the movies we grew up watching. Pre-internet, say in the early 90s, there were not a ton of kids in my junior high who still cared about Nightmare on Elm Street or Freddy, and even… Read More ›

Teenage Frankenstein: Alice in the 80s (Alice Cooper Vol. 2)

Admittedly, I have a soft spot for Alice’s ’86 to ’91 era. I discovered the Coop by way of the ubiquitous “Poison” video during the heyday of MTV. Alice became sort of a family obsession, shared between myself, my brother, my sister and my mother. I would acquire his entire studio output, but those few… Read More ›

A Christmas Playlist

12 Days of Christmas # 3 There are millions of Christmas songs and albums to fill every Holiday cheer void known to human, Muppet or droid. But you can’t listen to ‘em all, so I’ve cobbled together a short playlist of my very favorite rock n’ roll Christmas-themed tunes.

My Old Hardcore Band Played a Halloween Show Once

I spent a large chunk of my life going to hardcore and punk shows. I was in a couple hardcore bands too, the most notable of which lasted about a year at the turn of the millennium. The band was called Brass Knuckles…or Brass KnuXXXles—we were straight edge as fuck! Nah, just kidding, we were… Read More ›

BP Podcast, Episode 19: “2016 Halloween Celebration!”

Happy Halloween, friends! On this week’s episode we cover all things holiday-spooky — including costumes, movies, songs, treats, and much more! It’s a Halloween extravaganza! Of sorts. We also chat up recent movie viewings (High Spirits, Starry Eyes); have a rant about The Walking Dead; and preview the next episode (action movies)! Drinking game options: Every time… Read More ›

Halloween Playlist: 60s Garage Punk

Today’s Halloween playlist is not entirely a beast of my own creation. In 2014, Rockbeat Records released the seasonally essential three-disc Halloween Nuggets: Monsters Sixties A Go-Go set. This set is a hodge podge of spooky tracks from the 50s and 60s, featuring surf tunes, novelty songs, rockabilly stuff, and, most importantly to me, garage… Read More ›
