Re: “Black on Black, Firebrand (review)

This horrible band is illegal using the Federal Trademark "BLACK ON BLACK" owned by DARGI and the Legendary BLACK ON BLACK Music Coalition from Minneapolis who have been playing on everybody's Albums and Film and Television soundtracks since 1975.

You would think somebody in this band or their management would have thought to do a Trademark Search first before releasing a product illegally under a name someone else has owned and used exclusively for 40 years. I hope these fools have a lot of money because their ignorance is going to cost them a big lawsuit.

Re: “What's good and what sucks among recent local releases

At last a local music journalist who doesnt fawn all over local acts because he feels like he has to. There are local bands that actually suck live and put out shitty recordings.

Journalists should have no friends. They say that's the key to a free press. Keep telling like it is Dave!

Re: “Leonard Dstroy & Kutty Slitz, The LennySlitz Project Part 2 (review)

Kutty is a talented artist by all means, and leonard is no slouch for sure. D's work with Ces Cru on the Playground was phenomenal, and despite only a few discs to his name, slitz has one of those memorable voices, and his verb and word placement always mesh well. Definitely one in my top 10 for the city this year.

Re: “Bee Gees

"I've Gotta Get a Message to You" is Robin. House of Lords wasn't ever released, so it's hard to see it as a bid for America other than Bee Gees trying their hands in every old sub-genre of pop writing there was, during a period when Stigwood rode them like slaves to max his returns from a 5-year contract with these showbiz teen unknowns.

I heard these guys on "Homegrown Buzz" tonight and just HAD to go find them! These guys rock!

Re: “The Kansas City Bear Fighters

This album should be a cult classic. The brilliance of dark subject matter mashed up with soft sweet melodies makes the writing on this album the real deal. "Bird Flu" sounds like a love song, giving this eerie global threat a warm soft spot in your heart. Fresh originality would be the best way to describe this CD. A must have for anyone who appreciates authentic music.

Re: “Nothing By No One

Nice. Everyone should check this out. It's good!! BUT, it sounds NOTHING like Linkin Park. I don't know where that comparison comes from.

Posted by Jason Nehoc Cohen on 03/29/2012 at 7:12 PM

Re: “Nothing By No One

Haha...thanks for the review! Aside from the references to nu-metal and Linkin Park which both made me almost vomit... ;) I hate the genre and that band. I do appreciate you giving me the time of day though...
