SMLTBCBPB (Song most likely to be covered by Pat Boone):  I Love America DaDa ended up at #8 on Mike’s list and #9 on Kelly’s. THE RANKINGS Mike Love It To … Continue reading

Mike’s recommendation – Korg monotron delay An affordable way to start to play with analog music.  You get an amazing amount of capabilities from a device not much larger than a smart phone.  Also much safer than Mike’s water-based keyboard. Kelly’s recommendation – Better Call Saul Insider Podcast This is the second best recap show for Better Call Saul, after “A Saul and Battery“.  Show creators Vince Gillian and Peter Gould participate in every show … Continue reading

Squat Cobbler 30: Alice Cooper – Zipper Catches Skin (review)

The album features Zorro, Scrooge, dead pets returning to save their master and an “On Golden Pond” reference.  So, you probably get the idea this is a tad different than other outings by Mr. Cooper. Mike VASTLY under-rated “Zorro’s Ascent” on this album.  Uncertain? … Continue reading

Strong throughout… highlights include The Rhythm of the Heat and Biko (of course).

That said, check out You’re a Movie, Skeletons In My Closet, and Who Do You Think We Are… fun songs! There was a tour to support this album (which Kelly saw) and here is pretty complete documentation of it in glorious black and white…   SMLTBCBPB (Song … Continue reading

Audio is a little rough on this one gang.  There were a lot of Google Hangout issues and Mike ended up doing the show from his phone.  Sorry about that.  Way to phone it in Mike.
