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 ›

A Christmas Playlist: Part 2

Two years ago, I posted up a short playlist of a half dozen rock n’ roll Christmas songs. Since rock n’ rollers and metalheads have been banging out holiday jams aplenty in the past decade or so, here are 10 more. Cheap Trick- Christmas Christmas. Cheap Trick are no stranger to Christmas tunes, with holiday-themed singles… Read More ›

Fuzzed Out 70’s Halloween Stomp: A Playlist

In case you missed it, I posted a 60’s fuzzy garage punk playlist a couple years ago of which I’m quite proud. By 1968 most of the mid-60s garage punks were full-fledged flower power psychedelic weirdos, and the new songs and records reflected that. A lot of that stuff is good, but it lacks the… 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 ›

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 ›

Never Mind The Misfits, Here’s Dead Moon

For those that just want the rock and don’t feel like reading the bullshit, here’s the playlist. For everyone else, here we go. Glenn Danzig and his band o’ horror-obsessed Misfits have reigned supreme over the crisp Autumn months for decades. Sorry ‘Zig, but that has come to an end. Now, Dead Moon don’t have… Read More ›

Bloody Popcorn Presents: A ‘Green Room’ inspired soundtrack.

After a long wait, we finally watched Green Room a couple of weeks ago. As much as I loved the movie, there’s not a ton left to write about it that hasn’t already been written by others more eloquent than myself. The movie is still in the front of my brain though. And it has… Read More ›
