Kid Cut Up – Supermix 2010

I’ve been pretty fortunate that my local pub, The Highbury Pub in Milwaukee, WI, gets some awesome live music of all genres. One Friday last year I happened to stop in and Kid Cut Up was spinning.  I’d never heard him spin before, but I loved the mashups and mixes he was doing. They were […]

I love this song. You know you like this song too. Every time it comes on in a bowling alley, bar or shopping mall, you see the vast majority of people bobbing their heads along with it. Some are even lip syncing the words. And the chorus usually gets some out right sing along. This […]

Handpicked: Hum – “Stars”

Today, Hum’s “Stars” came on and I freaked, because  it is mostly Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam and stuff like that. They NEVER play this hidden gem. I love the way this song is composed. Light guitar no distortion […]

Under the Covers Goes Ska!

Under The Covers Goes Ska

In Under The Covers Vol. 4, one of the covers was “Come On Eileen”. I love both versions of the song, but it got me thinking about how I missed the summers of 1997-98 when ska was popular. That, in turn, got me thinking of other ska covers. Thus UTC Goes Ska was born. In this […]

Fitz & The Tantrums - "Pickin' Up The Pieces"

Fitz & The Tantrums – “Pickin’ Up The Pieces”

  My youth was filled with Motown and soul. I remember staying up late in the summer sitting at the kitchen table playing cards with my mom, dad and brother. Most nights, Motown provided that soundtrack. Listening to Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder and all of the amazing artists that came out of  Studio […]

Sublime With Rome - "Yours Truly"

Sublime with Rome – “Yours Truly”

When I say I’m a Sublime fan, I’m not just saying one or two songs. I’m talking about getting in to arguments at bars over which was the better record “40oz To Freedom” or “Sublime”. For the record I think “Sublime” is, but that is another article. Last year, I heard Sublime was getting back […]
