TSOL

Perfect Day

 

Jack Grisham, Ron Emory, Mike Roche and Todd Barnes were four kids who grew up together in Huntington Beach. As T.S.O.L. they blasted onto the Orange County punk explosion. Today, the band is back to give us what they gave then. “Superficial Love”, “80 Times”, “Code Blue”, “Wash Away” and the rest of those vintage punk nuggets will be blasted live into our faces again. Those who were not around to witness TSOL in their heyday can finally see for themselves why the band spawned a generation of bands and changed the shape of music today..

Cool It Down

 

Lorraine Lewis is a heavy metal goddess and queen of MTV. Her hugely successful band was named for the Velvet Underground song Femme Fatale. Since Femme Fatale went their separate ways, Lorraine has recorded sevral solo albums and is currently writing songs for the Nashville market. This is such a great song for her to cover. I'm sure the final recording will be a blast to listen to.

Tony Sales

White Light White Heat

 

Tony Sales and his brother Hunt are probably the best rhythm section in music today. In addition to playing with Todd Rundgen's Utopia and creating the sound of Iggy Pop's best selling record, Lust For Life, they were founding members of Tin machine. Having been a part of the NY music scene, Tony was in the same circles as the Velvet Underground and understands the vibe of this music better than most.

Madelynn Von Ritz

Femme Fatale

 

Madelynn's life should be chronicled in a book. She won't let me talk about her close freindships with many music business legends, but I will say this. She was present at some of the most important recording sessions in rock music history. She's an incredibly creative visual artist and songwriter. At the request of Boyce and Hart, Madelynn wrote Teeny Tiny Gnome for The Monkees. Her voice is perfect for Femme Fatale.

I was listening to Robert Swipe on the computer when Jenny came in. She sat down, listened for a minute and said, "this guy is about to do something incredible. Stick with him cause you don't want to miss it."

On thing I'm certain of. He's going to absolutely kill on this song, so stay tuned.
