Third Man Records is becoming a force in the music world, whether it be with vinyl or other special releases and now with guitar pedals! They have their own Bumble Buzz Pedal that was just released on Black Friday. Watch this video and see it in action. Feel the fuzz!!!
I love all the material that gets released on Record Store Day when they do it in the spring and then on Black Friday. Silversun Pickups have put out music before and did it again with 2 songs, Let It Decay and Working Title.
Let It Decay
I couldn't find the record itself. If anyone has an extra let me know, I'll pay handsomely for it. Up to $6 American cash money.
We've all been fired from jobs before but it can't be a good feeling to be let go while on stage with your band.
Black Flag's singer Ron Reyes posted on his Facebook page that while performing in Australia he was given the hook by Mike Vallely. Mike sang for the band years ago at a reunion show and he walked on stage and told Ron that he was done and finished the show. Ron said it's for the best and a relief that he's out.
The band does have a new album on the way on December 3rd, their last music with Ron Reyes, titled What The...
I'm sure Ron is happy to be gone but still, to be yanked off stage like that in front of people has to be an ego killer.
Billy Corgan is a man involved in many things: professional wrestling, teahouse owner, leader of the Smashing Pumpkins, and animal supporter, as shown by his generousity in giving to PAWS Chicago's Fur Ball.
Billy and Curtis Duffy, a Chicago chef, provided an evening at Madam Zuzu's Teahouse where up to 12 people could come and have dinner and then they'd be treated to a private show from Senor Corgan. The winning bid in the silent auction came in at $60,000.
I didn't see it mentioned but I hope that Billy will pose with everyone for new Facebook shots. For $60 grand, he should give them piggy back rides too.
