Vintage 1977 Live Album by Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers Finally Sees Light Of Day, Celebrated With Record Release Party Gig By Walter Lure!


Los Angeles, CA - Rock out like a motherf****r with this previously unreleased live album by NY punk legends Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers performing at the very peak of their powers in front of an adoring hometown crowd at the Village Gate in Greenwich Village. Pulling from two shows recorded August 18 & 20, L.A.M.F. Live At The Village Gate 1977 has been declared by former Heartbreakers guitarist/vocalist Walter Lure as simply the best shows the band ever played in its brief but storied career. No wonder too since the band was mere months away from releasing their debut album, the now revered classic of early punk, L.A.M.F. Available on both CD, in a deluxe mini-LP gatefold sleeve, plus a limited edition hot pink 12” gatefold vinyl pressing, L.A.M.F. Live also features special guest performances by Robert Gordon and New York Doll Sylvain Sylvain! The album will be available everywhere on October 16 courtesy of Cleopatra Records.

To celebrate this momentous release, Walter Lure will be performing at two exclusive album release parties, the first at the Til-Two Club in San Diego on October 16 and the second at the Redwood Bar & Grill in Los Angeles on October 17. The show promises to be a wild ride through the L.A.M.F. album including such classics as “Chinese Rocks,” “Born Too Loose” and more!

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…

New Biography on The Cars Singer/Bassist Benjamin Orr by Vermont Writer Joe Milliken to be Published November 2018!

Bellows Falls, VT – Veteran music journalist Joe Milliken recently announced a publishing deal with the Lanham, Maryland-based publisher Rowman & Littlefield Publishers to produce his first book, a biography about the late Benjamin Orr. Orr was the co-founder, co-lead singer, and bassist for the platinum-selling rock band The Cars. Titled Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars, a release date is set for November 15, 2018.

Often considered the band’s heartthrob, Orr possessed an incredible voice, diverse musical talent and rare stage presence, all balanced by a magnetic, yet enigmatic personality, striking good looks, and a relentless determination to reach rock stardom. Born Benjamin Orzechowski (aka “Benny Eleven Letters”) and raised in the Cleveland suburb of Parma Heights, Orr was, prior to becoming a world-famous rock star with The Cars, a “teen star” as a house band musician for the nationally syndicated television show Upbeat.

A few years later Ben met his musical partner and …
