Stan Lee Draws…?

I stumbled upon this book at the local library earlier today. I was a bit surprised. Stan Lee is known for writing/creating most of the characters associated with Marvel Comics. From the Fantastic Four to the X-Men they all sprang from the fertile frontal lobe of Stan the Man. But drawing? That really wasn't Stan's … Continue reading Stan Lee Draws…?

Jibbies & Loond – Episode 004 – SXSW 2011, Pt. 1

Following just days after their Motorhead odyssey, Jibbies and Loond returned to Austin for SXSW 2011, and put the young'uns to shame with their stamina, tenacity, and liver power, like two superheroes powered by METAL!, rock, and alcohol.  Loond got things started on Thursday afternoon at Emo’s with the Full Metal Texas day party. After the day-time bludgeoning it was time for the Small Stone Records … Continue reading Jibbies & Loond – Episode 004 – SXSW 2011, Pt. 1

Michael Monroe – LIVE! – Finland, Mar. 27, 2011, Japan benefit

I'm not sure what else I can say to convince the planet that this is its greatest currently functioning rock band, so I'll just let the music do the talking instead. Click here for 40 minute set from Japan benefit show. Could have used a little more Ginger and Sami in the broadcast mix, but other than … Continue reading Michael Monroe – LIVE! – Finland, Mar. 27, 2011, Japan benefit

Jibbies & Loond: Metalliance tour – SXSW 2011

It's Friday of SXSW. Day 2 for Jibbies, Day 3 for Loond. After roughly 24 hours of Small Stone immersion, its time for....well, more rock and metal! We stroll up on Dirty Dog's Bar and are instantly deflated. The line goes into the street and nearly out of sight. Fortunately, all the good mojo built … Continue reading Jibbies & Loond: Metalliance tour – SXSW 2011

Tres Mts. – Stubbs – Austin, Tex. – SXSW, Mar. 19, 2011

dUg Pinnick (King's X) and Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam) have been trying to get their (joint) musical act together for the better part of 15 years now. As musicians in two very hard working bands, however, little more than small snatches of time could ever be cobbled together. Both men very much wanted to do it, … Continue reading Tres Mts. – Stubbs – Austin, Tex. – SXSW, Mar. 19, 2011

Bob Geldof: Newest once-cool old bastard

Bob Geldof evidently gave the keynote address at SXSW this year. I didn't know this despite being there because I was there to find the vitality in music he evidently thinks is a thing of the past. The only time I stepped foot inside the convention center was to use a clean toilet. I didn't … Continue reading Bob Geldof: Newest once-cool old bastard

Jibbies & Loond: Tee Pee Records SXSW Day Party special

If you enter Day 3 at SXSW without beginning to feel your momentum wane at least a little you're either a liar, a poseur (ie. not working a bit), or a meth-head. So it was for J&L as Saturday's festivities began. Fortunately, the combination of Tee Pee Records' diverse line-up and the cozy laid-back confines of … Continue reading Jibbies & Loond: Tee Pee Records SXSW Day Party special

Loond got there early and had a great talk with Small Stone head Scott Hamilton, which we'll bring you as part of the next podcast. … Continue reading Jibbies & Loond: Small Stone SXSW Pt. 2 – The Day Party
