All-Star Jam: Magma Edition Posted by Mr. Moderator Jul 182013 If this clip doesn’t inspire you to unlock your most guarded piece of rock ‘n roll news then nothing will! 9 Responses to “All-Star Jam: Magma Edition” hrrundivbakshi says: 07/18/2013 at 12:24 pm I can *totally* see why EPG would get into these guys. 0 High Five Log in to Reply hrrundivbakshi says: 07/18/2013 at 1:11 pm Hey, Mod — do us a favor and explain what EPG likes about Magma. It’s clear he’s not willing to share, and I’d really like to know. 0 High Five Log in to Reply Mr. Moderator says: 07/18/2013 at 2:35 pm Clearly, it starts with the band’s animalistic stance. 0 High Five Log in to Reply hrrundivbakshi says: 07/18/2013 at 2:38 pm PLENTY of animality on display in that clip. 0 High Five Log in to Reply E. Pluribus Gergely says: 07/18/2013 at 5:40 pm The two best things that happened this year on RTH were the postings of the Magma and Gentle Giant clips. They are unique in their awfulness. Both bands, surprisingly, have a fan base. It would delight me to no end to find out what those fans find appealing about either band. By the way, Jimbo, I need to read that Richard Hell book, especially after reading your review. Wanna lend it to me? Hope to hear from you soon, E.

Something fairly comprehensive, but no more than four discs, ideally. This one looks cool, but four songs by the Byrds? http://amzn.to/17qgkwq 0 High Five Log in to Reply diskojoe says: 07/19/2013 at 1:46 pm I just like to say that I went to see that Big Star documentary Northing Can Hurt Me last week. I saw it in a small theatre in Gloucester, MA that’s right on top of a record store, which was full of living room chairs & couches, giving it a rec room feel.I enjoyed it very much. There were plenty of interviews w/the right people, some of whom have passed away (John Dickerson). Afterwards, a bunch of musicians, including employees of said record store, played Big Star material live. 0 High Five Log in to Reply Mr. Moderator says: 07/22/2013 at 12:24 am For fans of Let’s Active, some sad news: bassist Faye Hunter has died at 59, apparently a suicide. http://blogs.newsobserver.com/beat/faye-hunter-rest-in-peace 0 High Five Log in to Reply cherguevarra says: 07/23/2013 at 1:49 pm Never got there, but the Tokyo Tower Wax Museum is closing, site of the German Progressive Rock room and more. If you’re in the market for a Klaus Schulze wax figure, today might be your day. http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/tokyo-tower-wax-museum-s-progressive-rock-room http://rogermc.blogs.com/.shared/image.html?/photos/uncategorized/dsc03095.JPG http://rogermc.blogs.com/.shared/image.html?/photos/uncategorized/dsc03094.JPG http://factmag-images.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/FrankZappa230713.jpg 0 High Five Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
