I'll Wait

As many of you know, I tried and tried to arrange a David Lee Roth interview at the beginning of the summer without so much success: I watched his "Just a Gigolo" video for probably the first time since 1987 this past May, was delighted, and decided I needed to talk to him about this. Sadly, my requests weren’t honored and I became confused, because, really?, has anyone really wanted to talk to him since his Crazy from the Heat follow-up, which I can’t remember the title of? Probably not. As for you, C.C. Deville? I may have hoped to use you as a half-hearted replacement, but can’t believe your publicist wasn’t even polite enough to respond! And I don’t feel motivated to look-up the dudes from King Diamond, which is just as well because I doubt they possess much in the way of a non-“mayhem / the devil / gash” vocabulary. Please don’t click that.

Anyway, it wasn’t until several days ago upon coming across this article, Van Halen said to be working on new album with David Lee Roth, that I actually felt disappointed about any of this because, in the midst of answering / considering questions like how Van Halen coped with having the Back to the Future theme song stolen from them by those Huey Lewis and the News assholes, Dave could have totally dished to the Useless Critic about the new Van Halen album— maybe someone on E! would have mumbled something about this! Maybe some dude named Randy would have smashed a beer can on his face, from being so excited! No one remembers who the vocalist after Sammy Hagar was, but I’m hoping to get in touch with SaHa (which we’re going to pronounce “Say Hey”) to see if he’d like to share his thoughts about this turn of events amid sympathizing upon how we have both been ignored, hopefully starting a twitter battle between he and Van Halen’s management. Does SaHa even twitter? If you know anything about this, please post it in the comments!

  1. In high school I was totally a fan of King Diamond.
    But that was another life for me.

    I kind of want to take a journey back to "Eye of the Witch."

    Also, life would have been better for CC Deville if he had a dating show.

    I bet SaHa has Twitter, everybody has Twitter, EMTA has Twitter.

  3. King Diamond is awesome but not as good as Mercyful Fate.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
