Mar 19 2008, 12:34 di ripplemusicWay back in 1983, I was a young disc jockey at KSPC FM in Los Angeles. A great time to be in the industry, music was changing back then more than at any other time before or since. Not just bands, but whole new genres emerged overnight; The New Romantics, Synth pop, Gloom and Doom, Gothic, Post-punk funk, LA punk, the Athens sound, Power pop, Rockabilly, Cow punk. It was endless, the variety, the choices, the styles.
So what was a young DJ to do? Being the owner of the prime-time slot on Saturday night, my job was to warm up the party hounds before they hit the road (hopefully not literally) and partied it on til dawn. Get the revelers revved, but not burned. There was only one problem. I couldn't find my vibe. Sure, I liked lots of the tunes coming out at the time, but I wasn't a fan of the overproduced synth stuff, hardcore made my ears hurt and frankly, nobody has ever partied to an R.E.M. record. No, I was a DJ in search of a sound. I needed a mojo.
And the Bongos came to the rescue. Read more at: The Bongos
Feb 4 2008, 17:07 di cruz992Here is my Top 25 List of All-Time Favorite Power Pop Albums. I worked on this list for submittal to a poll on the (soon to be defunct) Audities mailing list, a poll which was inspired by the newish book by John Borack "Shake Some Action: The Ultimate Power Pop Guide".
It changed quite a bit from my first draft, from basically a list of my current faves, to a list more far-reaching in scope, as seen from the view of my many years as a power pop fan. This shift has homogenized the list quite a bit, to mostly feature mostly the well-known power pop Gods.
Despite my previous point, there are no Beatles albums to be found on the list, simply because I consider them bigger than power pop.
Three more albums that I loved, The Orgone Box' self titled debut, The Grip Weeds "House of Vibes" and Chris Bell's "I Am the Cosmos", didn't make the cut with me (though they made Borack's list) because I personally don't consider them power pop. …

Mar 20 2006, 16:31 di ericgWednesday, at Exodus (Paste Magazine venue)
Richard Julian - He was great. Very talented, with a wry sense of humor. Best song - End Of The Line
Apparently, Norah Jones was standing right next to us, but I was too clueless to notice.
Collin Herring - He took a little getting used to. Had a Drive By Truckers sound, sort of. Most notable thing: He wore sunglasses. Also, one of the members of his band looked an awful lot like Dale from King of the Hill.
Amos Lee - Wow, he had a great show, and was 10 times better than his CD. Everyone there sang along. A few of his friends came on to play with him a few times, most notably Dayna Kurtz.
World Party - I couldn't hear them. I was upstairs for this part (stepped out to get a pizza) Exodus sucks if you can't see the stage, because you also can't hear. What I did hear was very good, though.
The Plimsouls - These guys rocked out. It was neat to see the guy up front next to the speakers with an accountant's comb-over singing every word and reliving his youth. …
