Depending on how well you know me, it may or may not come as a surprise to you dear reader, that this is where Kill Ugly Radio ends. There are quite a few reasons why I decided today was a good time to put this old and rusty site to rest, but I won’t go […]

Sunday Big Note — Listening Session #25

Sat, 30 Apr 2011 22:03:11 +0000

Just about anyone from my generation who became a teenager in the 1970s is going to be extremely familiar with today’s Sunday Big Note artist. Indeed, the debut solo effort by this group – Tales of Mystery and Imagination, released in 1976 – is considered to be a classic album. Of course, I’m speaking of […]

Today’s Ear Worm: The Game

Das Pop are a Belgian band who first became known through their victory in the 1998 edition of Humo’s Rock Rally. I never really thought much of them though I did buy their debut album “I Love” when it first came out, which left me underwhelmed. Fast forward to the here and now, and Das […]

AltRock Extravaganza – 2011

Mon, 25 Apr 2011 05:42:28 +0000

From the very first instant I received a CD release from the independent AltRock label from Milan, Italy, I have been increasingly impressed by the exceptional quality of their releases (see Yugen & Rock In Opposition posted on Saturday, October 30th, 2010). Indeed, the AltRock label appears to be increasingly the “go to label” for […]

Sunday Big Note — Listening Session #24

Sat, 23 Apr 2011 21:05:07 +0000

From the very first time I heard Eddie Jobson perform as a member of Frank Zappa‘s band in 1976-77, I was immediately drawn to the style and playing of this virtuoso violinist/keyboard player. Whether it was Zappa compositions, or those of Roxy Music, Jethro Tull, or even his own solo work or through the supergroup […]

Sunday Big Note — Listening Session #23

Sat, 16 Apr 2011 23:20:07 +0000

Although Manassas only released two albums in their brief history as a band – the double album, Manassas, released on April 12th, 1972, and Down The Road on April 23rd, 1973 – the impact of these two albums is really quite undeniable. There are many who consider Manassas’ debut album somewhat of a masterpiece, and […]

Zappa & The Mothers – Does Geography and Media Influence Musical Tastes

Sun, 10 Apr 2011 18:28:22 +0000

Having grown up on the Bible Belt of Western Canada where the only sources of musical entertainment for the longest time were the local Country & Western and adult easy listening radio stations, it’s hard to imagine such a place nurturing such a Zappa and Mothers freak as myself. That’s right, two stations on the […]
