Halloween Pumpkin Smash Music Treats
Friendly Fire Recordings are releasing some primo David And The Citizens music with Until The Sadness Is Gone. David Fridlund writes wonderfully mopey yet musically bright songs sure to make all the indie-pop college kids look dreamily out their windows on a leaves falling autumn afternoon whilst contemplating that guy or gal that got away.
If minor key Swedish rock and roll isn't your thing or perhaps if you believe that if it's not Scottish it's crap then check out the first stateside release of Scot rockers Terra Diablo on Nocturnal Records. You'd swear it was the late 80's or early 90's again with Terra Diablo's wall of sound guitars evoking the best of Ride, My Bloody Valentine, and Swervedriver. It's a good mixture of Brit rock, psychedelic shades, and classic rock radio influences.
Speaking of classic rock, the Kissology DVD set arrives today which should make every Kiss fan smile and bootlggers across the world groan. Four often bootlegged shows are included in the two disc set along with plenty of extras like Kiss's appearance on The Mike Douglas Show and The Paul Lynde Halloween Special. But wait...isn't it a three disc set? Yes, it is out for a limited time as a three disc set, but here's the Gene Simmons mad making money deal: the bonus disc will vary from retailer. Best Buy will have a bonus disc featuring most of a show, Wal-Mart will have a different one, and then everyone else will have something else. So buy them all and help Gene pay for all of Shannon Tweed's extravagant purchases.
