there songs are endless to names like "Jumpers","Rollercoaster","End of You","Modern Girl","Entertain","Little Babies","Get Up","Turn It On","Dance Song 97","Words & Guitar",and "Dig Me Out"

And with Sleater-Kinney done Drummer Janet Weiss could foucs on her other band Quasi with her ex-husband Sam Coomes, they just released there 7th Album on touch and go records "When The Going Gets Dark".

As They get read to play there last show in Portland, Word came down this afternoon that Daytime talk show host in the 70's Mike Douglas die early this morning at his home in North Palm Beach, FL he was 81. Douglas was born in Chicago, Illinois. After serving briefly in the United States Navy near the end of World War II, he became a vocalist in the big band of Kay Kyser, with whom he was featured on two notable hits, "Ole Buttermilk Sky" in 1946 and "The Old Lamplighter" the following year. He remained part of Kyser's band until Kyser retired from show business in 1951.

He next surfaced in 1961 in Cleveland, where he was hired for $400 a week as an afternoon television talk-show host at WKYC-TV(NBC), then known as KYW-TV. The show rapidly gained popularity, and ultimately, national syndication in August 1963 on five Westinghouse-owned stations. It stopped broadcasting live in 1965 after guest Zsa Zsa Gabor used inappropriate language on the air. the program moved to Philadelphia in June 1965 with KYW itself - though WKYC in Cleveland continued to carry the program for many years afterward.

After the move to Philadelphia, Douglas also attempted to revive his own singing career, logging his lone Top 40 single as a solo artist, "The Men In My Little Girl's Life", in 1966.

By 1967, The Mike Douglas Show was broadcasting to 171 markets and 6,000,000 viewers each day, mostly women at home. It earned $10.5 million from advertisers, while its host was paid more than $500,000. In 1967, the program received the first Emmy Award for Individual Achievement in Daytime Television from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

Douglas became a local cultural icon in Philadelphia, His Guest rang from Aretha Franklin, Billy Joel, Billy Crystal, Richard M. Nixon, Even a young tiger woods even appered

but the most famous guest host was John and yoko ono who Guest host on the show for a full week, and it a classic. thouse Week of program is out on DVD.

In July 1978, the talk show's home base was transferred to Los Angeles, where it remained until finally going off the air in 1981.

New York Times: B+
"Mr. Stone has taken a public tragedy and turned it into something at once genuinely stirring and terribly sad."
San Francisco Chronicle: C
"'s all just a little too small and a little too Hollywood."

It Came From The Late Night Music Club From Culture City
With Tom Waits

Tonight Entry in Culture City, his gig is sold out Big Time tommorrow Night, a lot of people want to see him big time,but only the Luckey will get to see him.

It Tom Waits who Playing a total Sold out Gig at the Detroit Opera House now if you are going to the gig, you must remember if you got you ticket over the Phone or at you must present a valid picture ID matching the name given at time of purchase in order to receive their tickets and gain admittance to the gig.

So you are asking Why Tom Waits Matters.

Well accorring to the Second Most powerful web tool

Waits has a distinctive voice, described by the MusicHound Rock Album Guide as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months and then taken outside and run over with a car." With this trademark growl, as well as his experimental tendencies and a love of pre-rock Americana styles such as blues, jazz, and Vaudeville, Waits has built up a distinctive musical persona.

Lyrically, Waits's songs are known for atmospheric portrayals of bizarre, seedy characters and places, although he has also shown a penchant for more conventional and touching ballads. He has a cult following and has influenced subsequent songwriters, despite having little radio or music video support. His songs are best known to the general public in the form of cover versions by more visible artists, such as Tori Amos, Spanky & Our Gang, the Eagles, Bob Seger, The Ramones, Elvis Costello, Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, and Rod Stewart. Possibly the most famous of the covers were Jersey Girl, performed by Bruce Springsteen, and Downtown Train, performed by Rod Stewart. Although Waits's albums have met with mixed commercial success in his native United States, they have occasionally achieved gold album sales status in other countries.

Waits has also worked as a composer for movies and musical plays and as a supporting actor in films, including Short Cuts, The Two Jakes, The Fisher King, Mystery Men, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Coffee and Cigarettes, Night on Earth, At Play in the Fields of the Lord, Ironweed and Domino. He also had a starring role in the film Down By Law.

Waits was named at #90 on VH1's Top 100 Greatest Artists of Rock & Roll

if you can not go to the show or being left out, go out to you local in record store and pick up any one of his 20 albums:Closing Time(1973), Heart of Saturday Night(1974),
1975 Nighthawks at the Diner(1975),Small Change(1976),Foreign Affairs(1977),Blue Valentine(1978),Heartattack and Vine(1980),One From the Heart - Movie Soundtrack(1980),Swordfishtrombones(1983),Rain Dogs(1985)Franks Wild Years - Collaboration with partner Benoît Christie(1987),Big Time(1988),Night on Earth(1992),Bone Machine(1992),The Black Rider - Collaboration with Wm.

It Came From The Late Night Music Club From Culture City
With "Beck"

this is one of his Mini Video for his new album
The Inforamtion out Oct. 3rd

the Video:

"We Dance Alone"

It Came From The Late Night Music Club From Culture City
With "The Broken Social Scene’s"

The Hi-light the the Whole lollapalooza 2006 came on the third and final day, and any one who know the festival sence know that some time things dont always goes as plan some time bands play late, there set goes over delay ing the other band and so on and so on.

According to all report the toronto band the Broken Social Scene’s stole the show from the main headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers They have there entier full Band (Which inclued Ohad Benchetrit,Torquil Campbell,Brendan Canning,Jason Collett,Evan Cranley,John Crossingham,Kevin Drew, Leslie Feist,Jo-ann Goldsmith,Emily Haines,Martin Davis Kinack,Lisa Lobsinger,Amy Millan,Dave Newfield,Julie Penner,Justin Peroff,Bill Priddle,James Shaw,Charles Spearin, and Andrew Whiteman) played a amazing show they did notr played the full show because they ran late.

But this when down accroding to Jasper from

BSS was given a shortened set so the Chili Peppers could have a longer headlining set. The crowd was displeased — enthusiastically chanting for an encore, one more song, give us anything…The video screens on both sides of the field projected images of the BSS members backstage, mouthing the words “Thank You” and “I’m Sorry.” Some of them did the shoulder shrug, wide-eyed look of “there’s nothing we can do,” a couple members lay on the floor, with their hands in a praying gesture, mouthing “thank you” over and over to the cameras. Some of the member’s parents came out on stage to take pictures of the crowd.
The stage manager (I’m guessing) off to the side got on his two-way radio to Perry’s people. Perry was all set across the field to blather on for five minutes and introduce RHCP. The stage manager told us an encore wasn’t going to happen. Then “Fuck the Peppers” chants started. And of course, that entire half of the field boo-ed when Perry took the stage.
Ironically, all of this hoop-la delayed RHCP’s set a good ten minutes, and then their set ended ten minutes early – so BSS could have easily played another twenty minutes. A lot of the fans stuck around the BSS stage, having no interest in hearing some middle-aged dudes play Top 40 rock, and many of the BSS members came out to sign autographs, take pictures and shake hands with the crowd.

this is the hi-light of there touring for there well recived third album which made many top 10 list and is shortlisted for the inaugural Polaris Music Prize(Canada version of Mercury Music Prize in 2006.

Tonight entry in the music Club is from that album "7/4 Shoreline"

31 days Untill
The Dally in the Alley

Well today is a Very light day in Detroit Rock City, since it been out i deciede to put some recent review of two big show in the last three Days one was in Ann Arbor and the other in Downtown last night.

I was not there but the two daliy paper were The free press took to Ann Arbor for Sold - out Racountures and the News was downtown for the nearly sold-out Gnarls Barkley show.

First to Ann Arobor on saturday night where almost a pack house of 1,700 at the Michigan Theater Here is part of the gig as posted on the Detroit Free Press Web Sight:

White and Benson played off one another in a wiry set that saw the White's blues-rock chops ultimately dominating the 70-minute set.

The show's opening stretch, led by a raucous "Intimate Secretary" and taut "Level," was pleasant enough if not exactly rapturous. The band, which offered minimal talk between songs, dispensed with its big single, "Steady, As She Goes," early on. It was followed by the night's big weak spot, the tepid "Together," with White and Benson swapping vocals and acoustic guitar licks.

It was during Benson's straight-ahead cover of "It Ain't Easy" -- best known in its David Bowie form -- that White's feral intensity stopped operating within the mix and began to take over the show. While the Raconteurs have clearly gelled into an accomplished four-man ensemble during a summer of touring, the band Saturday night was ultimately a platform for the magnetic intensity of the White Stripes leader, who was often a blur of motion and hair.

Just by

Last night the neo-soul group Gnarls Barkley was in town for a big time gig there and it was the second time in Four days that there was a Foot Jam in downtown with a gig at the state theater and a tigers game across the street at Comerica Park. the duo of Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo and there backing band was dress up as medical costumes for the show,

They play a mixture of tunes of there Debut Album and a lot of covers including "Who Scared You" by the Doors.

Here what Mekeisha Madden Toby of The Detroit News (Yes, she the TV Writer at the paper reviewing a live gig)say when there were playing there Summer song "Crasy"

But the fans came to hear "Crazy," Gnarls’ ubiquitous, signature summer anthem. When they finally got to this song, the screams reached an all-time high, in turn transforming Cee-Lo’s scowl into a blindingly bright grin.

And the band Modest Mouse have a brand New Member it Ex-Smith guitarist Johnny Marr In an interview with Rolling Stone, Brock said Marr "made a cautious commitment to write and record with us, and then the tighter we got, he was like 'OK, let's tour too.'"

Modest Mouse, with newby Marr, will tour in support of their forthcoming album, We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, which Marr helped write and record.

Brock told Rolling Stone that after the decision to have Marr tour with the Modest Mouse, "he was pretty much a member of the band—not pretty much. He's a full blown member of the band. It's really fuckin' nice."


It was also announce that Albert Hammond Jr of the Strokes will be releasing his First solo album, Entitled Yours to Keep and due out in the UK on October 9 on Rough Trade, the disc features bassist Josh Lattanzi (Ben Kweller) and drummer Matt Romano (Adam Green) serving as Hammond's backing band as well as guest spots from Kweller, Sean Lennon, Strokes manager Ryan Gentles, Fountains of Wayne's Jody Porter, Mikki James of Thin Lizard Dawn and Sammy James Jr. of the Mooney Suzuki.

06 Back to the 101
07 Bright Young Thing
08 Scared
09 Holiday
10 Hard to Live in the City

It will be released in the US No date have been set.


It not been a good weekend for begin a fan of Canadian indie music, First st the begin of the weekend Death From Above 1979 thur in the towel for the last time as they announced that Bassist Jesse F. Keeler and drummer Sebastien Grainger goes there separt ways that copled with the news from that the blues-punks band the Deadly Snakes have also call it a day.

"The main reason is that it's been like 10 years's not fun like it used to be and it's not enough of a career to justify the lack of fun that we're having," Maxwell McCabe-Lokos aka Age of Danger said to the on-line Mag. "It's not excruciating by any stretch, but I think that we're all getting a little tired of going on tour and playing in Ozona, Texas for two or three people. Some people can do that until their eyes fall out.

"I think we went about as far as we could with this band...and we're all still friends and the main thing is that we were friends before, and we wanted to remain friends after, so we decided to call it a day.

There last show will be in Toronto on August 25 ay the Horseshoe Tavern, their last album, 2005's Porcella was is currently up for the Polaris Prize (Canada's version of the Mercury Prize), They may released a recording from the upcoming Horseshoe gig with some B-sides tossed in as there final released.


And spaking about Break-up Last week Sleater-Kinney did play there Final ever Washington DC gig after there 48-hour delay from there secuald show was postphone becasuse of a blon Trasfromer cause by last week East coast Heat wave in the DC and Balitmore area, But Ted Leo did one up the girls last week according to several Pitchfork reader Ted Leo was playing Wednesday night at Baltimore's Ottobar, the power went out 3/4 of the way through Leo's set. one Reader Ira wrote in E-mail to say that as soon as the lights went out, Leo led the crowd in singing "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson, "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey. "Then he grabbed an acoustic guitar [and] played 2 songs by flashlight."

Another reader, says one of those songs was a Lungfish cover, and that after it was over, Leo "promptly fell off the stage."

"I've never seen anything like it at a show before. He literally fell off the stage, there was a huge crash, the crowd gasped because there were no lights on or anything, and then you heard the acoustic guitar strumming again. Incredible...

"At that point, everyone was asked to leave the club, so Ted took to the streets and gave an impromptu concert out in front of the Ottobar for his fans."

Now that is deacationt big time.

It Came From The Late Night Music Club From Culture City

This Week was a Very good week For live Music in and around town.

You have big Theater Shows like The Flaming Lips, Sonic Youth and The Go! Team at the state and the Racountures at the Michigan Theater the Next all of this happend because there was on route or just coming back from Lollapazoza in Chicago, and it got ever major press in Chicago, Come back on Monday for all the Links, and if you did not go to chicago you can see it on a special webcast, The First Battle of the Band Semi-Final gig at the Majeic Theater Complex and ever one was listen to the last webcast of Sleater-Kinney Carred so what could spoil it this weekend.

if you were watching the reslut show of America's Got Talent on thursday Night or saw the reruns on Bravo this weekend(and thank god i put it on Mute because i was listen to Sleater-Kinney).

It Was David Hasselhoff Singing

The Star of biggest hit of the 80's (Knight Rider) and the 90's (Baywatch) Filled the last ten Mintues with his song that is fulling his big time comeback as the But of all jokes, "Jump into my car" which have been a major hit and some time a good joke in beteween he also sang it with KITT (The Car from Knight Rider) on stage, and impressing there fellow Judges Brandy and Piers Morgan.

So your just wondering how he became a singer in the first place

Well according to,Once having solidified his position as an actor, he attempted to cross over into the music industry and made his debut with the 1985 album Night Rocker while still working on the show. After two moderately successful albums, he recorded "Looking for Freedom" with German producer Jack White(oh no, Not that Jack White of the White Stripes, but a diffence Jack White) in the summer of 1989 and released it just as the Berlin Wall came down.

In Germany, his song became an anthem of sorts at the time, and the album went gold and triple platinum, topping the charts for three months whilst the single managed a mere eight weeks. He was later announced as the best selling artist of 1989 in Germany even prompting the newspaper headline "Hasselhoff: not since the Beatles." Since then another six of his albums have gone platinum in Europe.

So that why we always say he big in Germany

i would loved to show you the clip But it was shown on NBC

so i have the video of Hoff begin hoff with KITT
"in Jump in My car"

The Big TV Speacail at the time was Elvis Presley's Aloha From Hawaii television special is was seen around the world by over 1 billion viewers The first-ever such gig to be broadcast live via satellite but the US Viewers did not see it untill two day later untill Jan 14, also in 73 CBGB's in New York City open up for bizzness, Production begins for a situation comedies that is too be aired in 74 on ABC it was about the 50's and it was called Happy Days.

the big flick that year was The Exorcist, Live and Let Die, Paper Moon, Live and Let Die, Jesus Christ Superstar, American Graffiti. the best picture oscar went to The Sting staring Paul Newman and Robert Redford.

The Top tunes on that year was Candle in the Wind" - Elton John, "Nadia's Theme" which was later used a the themy Song for th CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless, "Piano Man" - Billy Joel, "Top Of The World" - The Carpenters,

And Tonight Entry in 1926 where Anthony Dominick Benedetto was born in Astoria section of Queens in New York City, but the world would know him forever as Tony Bennett a sinder singer who found his Succed as a standards, and jazz singer who was making hit records in the 50 and 60 but when rocks push out Croonner Music in the 60 some say he was wash up.

One of his singer tune that never get old with time is the Classic "I Left My Heart in San Francisco"
