Danny’s Favorites

English was my weak subject in college. I sometimes think I overcompensate for that now. Are they just trying to bug me with the There Still Punk title? Or are they being funny? It’s mostly irrelevant, I suppose, as it really has nothing to do with the music I’m listening to. I’m digging this. It’s melodic and up-tempo and catchy and the lyrics are pretty funny. This is my kind of thing. It’s got a sound that blends early punk and power pop nicely. They’re obviously not the first to do this, but their sound is one I like. And I’ll always be a fan of anyone willing to take on the Mormons. Looking at the credits, it looks like there are only two band members here, with Trevor Lake responsible for everything except the drums. This is worth looking for.

Angus MacLise (1938-1979) was, as the Velvet Underground’s original drummer, an essential element of their early free-form sound, particularly on songs like “Heroin,” “Venus in Furs” and “Black Angel’s Death Song”. Because he left the band before they released an album, he was overlooked in earlier accounts of the pre-punk scene (and, like Nico and Doug Yule, not included when the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996). But he nonetheless left quite a legacy behind.

Fripp and Toyah go punk with cover of The Clash’s Should I Stay Or Should I Go

Robert Fripp and Toyah Wilcox’s Sunday Lunch cover series has returned, and this time the pair take on a punk classic – The Clash’s Should I Stay Or Should I Go. Wilcox wrote in the video’s description: “They are back for another edition of Sunday Lunch. It’s always tease, tease, tease, you’re happy when I’m on my knees…. I don’t think we need to say anything else :-)”

Atom & His Package tweaked the punk scene where it counts

I still often think about Atom & His Package, the one-man, one-sequencer band that charmed and annoyed the U.S. punk scene from 1996 till 2003—that is, mostly before I knew how to find my way into that world. I love the novelty factor of the act: bespectacled Philadelphia punk Adam “Atom” Goren would yelp over lo-fi synth melodies in front of the same crowds who’d come to see noisy rock bashed out on the usual guitar, bass, and drums.

FEATURE: A Guiding Light: Television’s Marquee Moon at Forty-Five

IN THIS PHOTO: Television in 1977. Left to right: Billy Ficca, Richard Lloyd, Tom Verlaine and Fred Smith. where to start when it comes to Television’s remarkable and hugely influential debut album, Marquee Moon. Released only a few days after Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, this extraordinary album came into the world on 8th February, 1977. Ahead of its forty-fifth anniversary, I wanted to bring in some reviews and features that tell the story of Marquee Moon and why it is such a special album. The New York band, led by the songwriting brilliance and musical virtuosity of Tom Verlaine, produced this masterpiece. One would think it would be easy for Television to get a record deal and get noticed. I guess, at a time when there were no bands that sounded like them, there was hesitation. Classic Album Sundays revisited Marquee Moon for a feature that explored the roots of one of the best albums ever:

(Punk Singer) - Age, Birthday, Bio, Facts, Family, Net Worth, Height & More

Mark Edward Smith is an English singer and songwriter, lead vocalist, lyricist and sole permanent member of the post-punk band The Fall. Smith formed the group after attending the Sex Pistols show in June 1976 in Manchester and was the frontman until his death. Over its 42 year history, Fall's roster consisted of around 60 musicians with whom Smith released 32 studio albums and several singles and EPs. Smith has a difficult and complex personality and is a long-time alcoholic. He is known for his witty and determined humor, which is evident in the interviews, which he has been in high demand by music journalists throughout his career. He doubts the pitfalls of popularity and largely avoids hanging out with people involved in the music scene, including other Fall members. The dark and sarcastic side of his character often appears in his lyrics; he especially didn't care about people in the music industry.
