Death, Rattle & Roll - Various Artists Compilation
WONDERTAKER RECORDS is a dumpster-diving Northern California (pronounce
it like Arnold!) indie hardcore label showcasing Rob and Sluggo's (the
founders) favorite face-melting sounds. Crank this sucker up and mow
people down with charged-up prime listening rock of the highest order.
Ride through potent riffs, metallic solos, gritty lyrics and solid
songwriting. This CD is jam-packed with volatile bands like THE HYDROMATICS, THE NITWITZ AND THE GRANNIES.
The Grannies - Erected Ladyman
THE GRANNIES CD "Erected Ladyman" kicks ass from start to finish, a hot-on-the-burner tile-blaster of belligerent, raucous and downright scary raw punk
energy. Somewhere between the Mono Men, KISS-meets-The-Simpsons-Retirement-Castle and the Makers, THE GRANNIES are titans of killer punk rock guitar, a jet engine roar of fire-starting brutality. What could make it better? Old lady outfits! Heavily checked for by such diverse punk throwrags, zines and websites as: Razorcake, Blender, Backfire, Toxic Flyer, Trashcompactor and Sleazegrinder.
Motorhome - Black Lung
Mixed and mastered by Seattle grunge legend Jack Endino (think Nirvana's "Bleach") MOTORHOME is brazen kick ass boogie, raw and dirty with whiskey-n-cigs
vocals, blazing leads and bulldozer drumming. Does it rock? Goddamn, does it ever! An ass blast of redneck riff-metal mixed with suicide-boogie speed-rockin', MOTORHOME is cranking slabs of trailer-park thunder from the top of busy skate ramps and selling out the clubs.
Soul Brains - A Bad Brains Reunion
The legendary punk / reggae band, BAD BRAINS reunites in this incendiary mixture of raging hardcore punk, deftly thudding metal and heartfelt, liquid reggae, bristling with spiritual fervor. A band to be held in awe adding their tumultuous, internal volatility and expressing it through galloping thrashers; BAD BRAINS' tremendous influence is clearly experienced on this explosive live CD, a must-have for anyone into the one band that started an unholy alliance between punk, hardcore, rock and reggae
Flut - Puppy 4 Life
FLUT is a distortion laced & bottom-heavy simplicity (think the Breeders or Jawbreaker) of story-telling nursery rhymes for the psychotic. Antagonistic and
absolutely wonderful, the San Francisco-based three-piece comes with a brute honesty and little room for manners. Genre and gender bending, FLUT is a punk folk jazz beauty. A sparse noir powerhouse that is, in fact, all that.
Griddle - Turning Violet
A startling discovery, the hard-working, touring GRIDDLE melds garage punk, rock 'n' roll, and even prog into one giddy rush, (think: Ramones,
Flaming Lips, Minutemen, Van Der Graff Generator). A fabulous modern musical evolution, GRIDDLE effortlessly joins all these elements, even
introducing pop and glamrock between the bedsheets and getting it steamy. Imagine their music as a superfine noise-pop soundtrack to "Hedwig and the Angry Inch pt.2: The German Impressionist Years."
Cuatro Caminos - el bong de titaneo
Self-described "mariachi dub outer space band" CUATRO CAMINOS is an accidental fabulosity of three disparate musicians whose end result has
already resulted in their inclusion into a movie soundtrack and uncountable, spontaneous college radio airplays. All over the musical map like Parliament Funkadelic 70's soul and Latin jazz with Hawaiianbn reggae, cowboy ballads, and great everywhere you land, this music bounces better than Cake and sweeter than Flaming Lips. Mexican relatives of Nick Cave and Jon Spencer, a Latin invasion mixed with an alien invasion, with summathat Southwestern seasoning melded with the
Zappa-esque nuances CUATRO CAMINOS is damn great music. When Beck gets good again, he might just sound like this.

Stevie Salas @ Stevie Salas -
spent a week surfin' in Costa Rica as well as going over plans for my
new house. I jammed with the Leatherbacks at the Pasatiempo in
Tamarindo. OOHH YES, I also got my backpack ripped off with all my
credit cards and passport in it!!! I must give thanks to all my pals
who helped out that week. A special thanks goes out to Danny and Helen
for the pie, and Rob, Karin and Sam Arris for calling the US Ambassador
and getting me a passport so I could get home!!!
JD, Tichy & me
I went to see the mighty Brian Tichy rock with Billy Idol in San Diego.
(BTW, Brian co-wrote and co-produced the new Billy Idol CD, Devil's
Playground, so get it if you can) Afterwards, we all stopped in to my
little town of Carlsbad and jammed at the local mexican hot spot, Mas
Fina Cantina. With Brian on drums, JD (Zakk Wylde, Richie Kotzen) on
bass and me on guitar, we rocked on some Sabbath, James Brown and
then split for a surf trip driving down the coast of Baja. I hit
surfing spots like Scorpion Bay with a crew from Rusty Surf including
Rusty and 1st ever world champ skater Bob Scolberg. The trip included
some of their Pro riders: John Greenberg from Union, John Marx from
William Morris and a couple of people from Surfer Magazine. After 1200
miles, several breakdowns and a destroyed jet ski trailer we made it to
Cabo....WHAT AN AWESOME ADVENTURE!!!
a couple of days in Cabo, I jumped a flight to New York to Pippa Cohens
35th birthday bash on Mark Seligers roof deck which was off the
hook!!!! New York City in May is what it is all about!!!
two days of that madness, I flew to San Diego to see my badass little
sister, Nikka Costa open for Lenny Kravitz. I don't know where she gets
it, but that girl has all the heat and I dont know anyone who can touch
it!!! Her new CD, Can'tneverdidnothin', comes out this week so CHECK IT
OUT!!!! Backstage Lenny told me I looked like I was gettin younger???
Hhhhmmmmmm....ok?!?! Lenny rocked the house as well and I am not just
saying it cuz he said I looked younger, but perhaps he is the new King
of Rock? What I mean is who else has the songs, style and a concert
hall stacked full of fine ass girls??? I saw them tonight in L.A. as
well and it was the same story!!

Meet the CAT FAMILY.
I really am not into sentimental crap but even I stop being rational and accept that sometimes gifts come, not in the form you wanted or that you expected, sometimes gifts walk into your garden, take up residence and have their family in your closet. I got them out of their fast!
In spite of my caution in allowing cute things to creep up on me, in this case I am glad I did.
We have enjoyed hours of entertainment as they discover their world. George is an elastic band athlete. He'll be ready for training and the animal olympics shortly! He picks up the elastic band, throws it in the air and then catches it with his claw and pulls necessitating upward levitation with an electric spin on the fur, claws and ears. Jennifer, the little girl, loves her ballet. She has four soft balls and she walks around, ball clenched between her teeth until she feels like Dee Dee, then throwing the ball in the air she dances and keeps that ball in the air as well as a juggler.
Brindle Bott is seriously growing; he requires plenty of food and rest. But soon he too will take his place in the land of the lively and depart from the comatose. Soon Brindle Bott will get up off the sun-baked cobbles and haul his rather pudgy frame up onto the roof with brother George. It's just so tiresome to have to move when napping, napping is probably just as useful to Brindle Bott dreams!
As for Kitty Momma, I don't need to tell you that this cat could charm the eyebrows off anybody. Michael is too sweet by half but I am stoic, solid, steadfast and she got me. Doesn't she have the most impressive whiskers? Pooh Kitty has her own trick with the balls. She walks nonchalantly around with a ball in her mouth mewing and as the kittens come to her she slyly acts as though she's going to play and then drops the ball and pounces, wrestling, that resembles getting a spanking for those mischievous kittens who do NOT come when called for instance when on the roof!
We are up to our eyes in Humane Society appointments having them spayed and neutered, but that's OK.
From the left: momma's clone-son Brindle Bott, then little sister Jennifer, Big, smart George surveying his outdoor fountain, the whole family in a chair and finally Pooh Kitty and Brindle Bott. I wish they were still this small! Now there's a pack of FOUR felines that patrol the grounds.
