The return of Favorite Tunes Friday

Well I went back and seen what the last song/band was when I departed, so here is the continuation:

This here is 3 Speed Automatic they hailed from Germany, and like most of my FTF’s not much info about these bands. This are a stoner/hard rock band. Very groovy imo. Give it a listen and have a great Friday.

FAVORITE TUNES FRIDAY

Ok, so I took a week off sue me, still no dddddddd double shot.

Today is a good day to be a male and reading my blog heh, for I give you

54 NUDE HONEYS this is an ALL GIRL Japanese punk band……oh yes!

Enjoy, this is a live video from the now defunct & world famous CBGB’s

Bombarded By Bees & Favorite Tunes Friday the Saturday Edition

Today wifey and I took the boy to the apple orchard to get some apples and let him pick out a pumpkin.

We get there and he wants to play on the swingset with the other kids, but instead of playing with the other kids he plays alone in the straw….I guess that’s pretty common for an only child.

After a few mins of that he wants to pick out a pumpkin, we go and find 2, however he doesn’t want to carry any of them heh, so I haul them back to the car while he and mommy go to the apple and cider and produce section.

I join them and wifey keeps asking me to get some cider (I love cider, but for $5 a gallon & $3 a 1/2 gallon I can do without). We ended up buying a pint of apple butter.

We go to the concession stand because I want an Elephant Ear, I LOVE them, but they are not like the fairs…bummer, I still get one, actually we get two + a water a cider for me and a cider slushy for the boy.

As were standing there waiting to order bees are EVERYWHERE and I do mean EVERYWHERE….I don’t like bees!

We get up there and order our stuff and I ask the lady at the counter if they get stung a lot “mmmm not too bad, we will usually grab one by accident, and the other day one flew up my shirt and stung me…..NOT FAIR!”

Did you just read that? OMG!!!!!!!!! have I told you I hate bees? well I HATE THEM, Bill Maher says there is a shortage of bees…..GOOD RIDDANCE!!!! I don’t care they suck!

THEY CAN SMELL FEAR!!!!!

So, we get our food and yep the bees surround us, so we walk away from the food and the other bees with food in tow, we go to the swingset area again thinking we would be far away enough……NOT!!!! THEY FOLLOWED US!!!!

We tried moving further away, no good so wifey says “We will probably have to eat them in the car” bummer, but ok I’m game.

We all move to the car and you should have seen how fast this big boy can get the food, the boy and himself in the car.

NO BEES!

We enjoy our treat and they (the bees) come the window…..I’m not lying! It was like that moie where the bees cover the VW and they have to go to the football stadium and freeze the bees off……ok not that bad, but it was pretty terrifying none the less….heh.

A couple of weeks ago I was at a herf and there was a bee and I’m ducking and jiving trying to get away from it, one of they guys thought this was entertaining and made the comment “Really? You have all those tattoos and your scared of a little bee sting?” I had to laugh at that,

So that was my Saturday.

Sorry I missed Favorite Tunes Friday and I am not going to do a double shot, just the one.

Today I bring you

38 SPECIAL

I love this band, and I feel they never got their due, sure they had some big hits and they are loved and respected all over the Classic Radio stations, but a majority of people won’t put them up there with all the other greats….I will.

I had the pleasure of seeing them live twice…the 1st time they had Eddie Money open up for them and the 2nd they opened for Bon Jovi (REALLY???? I couldn’t believe it….they didn’t even play Hold On Loosely, it was a pretty shitty show).

This video is the very 1st song I ever heard from 38 Special where I fell in love with this band, I then went back and discovered their earlier better stuff, but this one popped my cherry with this band and it still tests the time.

Enjoy!

Favorite Tunes Friday

Today I did something a little different to spice it up a bit since I have been in a “writer’s block” kind of funk…I posted the vid 1st…yeah originality.

Hmmm, I tried to find a bio for this band and there isn’t I do know they formed in 1992 and split in 2010 I only have one of their albums and it’s their last lol. They are a hardcore band, now I am not talking about today’s hardcore….today’s hardcore is some weak ass shit. This is old school hardcore like the Cro-Mags, D.R.I., Agnostic Front….shit like that.

Anyway enjoy and I do apologize to my faithful readers, I may have another one to write today, but who knows.

Favorite Tunes Friday

Today moving down my CD collection we have 24-7 Spyz

Hailing from NYC The Bronx to be exact, they formed in 1986 on the coattails of Fishbone & Living Colour this is an all black band as well, but they had a more METAL sound, they also have elements of funk, rap and sometimes dub reggae. This is from their 2nd album titled GUMBO MILLENNIUM – NEW SUPER HERO WORSHIP (this song has more of a BAD BRAINS feel too it, especially the vocal stylings. Enjoy!

Favorite Tunes Friday

Today I bring you a song that EASILY could have been on the High Fidelity soundtrack, but wasn’t.

20-20 is a pop/post punk band that formed in Tulsa, OK in 1977 and made 3 albums until 1982 when they broke up, they came back and released 2 more albums after this, but their style had changed and no one was interested so they broke up again.

This song is from their 1981 release LOOK OUT! It’s called OUT OF MY HEAD…enjoy!

Dddddd Double Shot! (Favorite Tunes Friday)

Well I screwed up last week and I totally forgot about Favorite Tunes Friday, so you lucky readers get a double dose of tunes today, I know I consider you lucky too…..no, no there is no reason to thank me, just sit back relax and listen to the sweetness coming out of your speakers….my error is your gain.

Today we have the band 16 from California they are a sludgy, stoner metal band…get used to these terms people I have a lot of this kind of music in my collection…lucky you. http://www.allmusic.com describes this band as the edgy aggression that hangs thick in the air just before a bar fight, translated into music. Sounds great right? They have five albums under their belt the 1st one came out in 1993 and their last came out in 2009, they were on 7 year hiatus before releasing their last album BRIDGES TO BURN  which was their major label debut from RELAPSE RECORDS this is BORN TO LOSE  off of that album, this was recorded live at “HELLFEST 2010”

Next band is Chicago’s 18 SPEED TRANNY the only thing I could found out about this band is that they changed their name to ANALOG MACHINE and have released one album under that moniker which came out in 2007, so I guess it’s safe to say they have either disbanded or on hiatus. Here is all I could find from them this song is called “JUSTICE”  it was recorded live at Durty Nellie’s in IL.
