artist to dig on

Ted Leo and the Pharmicists. eMusic lastFM Form the emusic page: Ted Leo is still in a class by himself when it comes to relocating and reinvigorating the fiery spirit that produced the great sounds of the ’70s and early ’80s.

songwriting

Man, I try to write a Weezer song, and I come up with this: Whiskey Glass. It’s not a bad song. In fact, I’m pretty happy with it, for a demo. But it’s not a Weezer song. Not even close. What’s a Weezer song? Hard edged, melodic, interesting and ROCKS hard. I’ll keep working on […]

when it rains, it pours
