Dec/2017

Frank Zappa fans have something to look forward to on the big screen and home video. There is a new feature length documentary called ‘Summer 82 – When Zappa Came to Sicily‘ that will be released and screened in theaters. Frank Zappa was one of the coolest people on the planet and one of the best musicians in the history of music. His only Grammy award was for his classical album, but if you know anything about Zappa, he wasn’t much known for classical music. The documentary will feature some never-before-seen concert and backstage footage, along with interviews with the band, family members, concert goers, and more. I can’t wait to see this.

Good news, everyone. The entire ANTI- catalog of Tom Waits albums will be re-mastered and re-issued on vinyl, which will include a new remixed version of Real Gone. All of this will be available before the holiday season, which will make excellent gifts and stocking stuffers. Tom Waits is one of the coolest people on planet Earth and has released videos, songs, and movies that always evoke emotions, laughs, and fun. I just hope he’s working on a new album and will once again tour, because if you’ve never seen Tom Waits live in concert, you really haven’t lived yet. It looks like all releases will come with 2 LPs that are 180g each along with a digital download card as well, which is just amazing.

‘Phish: A Live One’ is Getting the LP Treatment!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 9th, 2017

Written By Bryan Kluger:

Phish’s first live album called ‘A Live One‘ was released back in 1995, which means this is 22 years old and makes me wish I was still that young again when I first heard this album. It was released on CD and cassette back in 1995, which was a time when vinyl wasn’t really being produced. The album was recorded mostly through Phish’s 1994 tour and is regarded a big fan favorite.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

 

It’s that time of the year again, where we induct musicians and singers into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Over the past few years, the term Rock & Roll is used loosely, because according to this list, some of these artists are not Rock & Roll at all. Still, this is the voting period and you can vote on who deserves to be inducted, which will air on HBO.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Bohemian Rhapsody may be something that we connect with ‘Wayne’s Wold‘, and for good reason, but Mike Myers is not content to leave it at that. The jokester is courting director Bryan Singer and negotiating for a role in a film about the greatest of the great, Queen.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Coming out of the Venice Film Festival, filmmaker John Landis has released a 3D version of Michael Jackson’s legendary music video/short film THRILLER. I can’t even right now. I’m so torn on this news. On one hand, this is the best announcement ever. On the other hand, it’s an announcement in 3D, which really doesn’t make anything better or brighter other than a Jackass sequel. What we’re hearing is that this 3D version of Thriller is just a pre-cursor of at least two other big announcements regarding the late King of Pop in the coming weeks.

Nine Inch Nails Is Back With New EP and Single!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jul 13th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

Nine Inch Nails has never really been gone, if you ask me, but they’re back with a new five-song collection release titled ‘Add Violence‘ on Friday, July 21st. Leading the pack of this new release is the upbeat single ‘Less Than‘. You’ll find the video below, it will make you absolutely giddy, or maybe that’s just me. The synthesizers beckon back to the optimism of the ’80’s before being overpowered with some rugged and dirty guitar riffs.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

If there ever was a guitar player besides Jimi Hendrix that should get his own documentary, it should be Eric Clapton. This guy not only produced and created some of the best mix of blues and rock songs, but he did enough cocaine, heroine, and alcohol that would have killed everyone in Bangkok overnight. And those people know how to party with the lady-boys. The documentary is called ‘Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars‘ and will be directed by Lili Fini Zanuck, which sounds like a fake name.

Prince is coming back in a big way very shortly. After years and years of shitting all over the internet and streaming services, Prince finally joined the world and accepted that his music should be available online, and not just vinyl, cassette, and CD. Prince must have come across PornHub and thought, “this is the wave of the future.” Next thing you know, we have ‘Batdance‘ online, and that was as recent as 2015.

Since there just are not enough man-eating plants in my movie collection, I’m ecstatic that Warner Bros. is making a movie musical remake of ‘Little Shop of Horrors‘. The property began as a horror movie from Roger Corman in 1960, then it went on to become a musical, then another movie, it’s had a lot of incarnations, which makes sense because it’s such a genius story!

New music releases from now defunct bands or artists that have passed on isn’t really a new thing. We’ve seen enough posthumous releases that nothing should really shock us anymore, right? Every now and them a producer comes up with a mind-blowing vision to have current artists cover titles from an artist’s catalog to give it a face lift while still keeping a little something of the original artist. Covers are a hard tightrope to walk, you know? Either there’s no way in hell you can live up to the original hype or the new version sounds so good you make everyone feel guilty for liking it more than the former.

Ah, the timeless combination of film and music. The two have been married since the earliest days of film, all the way back to Don Juan in 1926, which starred the uber-hunky mustachioed John Barrymore and was the first film to include a synchronized musical score.  In fact, the first “talkie” film was 1927’s “The Jazz Singer,” which included a number of quaint musical performances and even a truly and horrifically inappropriate blackface sequence.  However, today we aren’t just here to discuss soundtracks, but rather to shine a spotlight on the movies where music is a main (if not THE main) theme throughout the film.

He left behind a legacy of family that surrounded the 69-year old visionary as he passed on. Bowie also left a vibrant musical legacy that will survive the test of time and has left a palpable influence on music since he hit the scene decades ago.

There are a few things I’m looking forward to by the end of 2015 and watching ‘Krampus‘ is one of them. I can just about guarantee that after I watch this screamer, I will be adding the ‘Krampus Original Motion Picture Soundtrack‘ on vinyl to my “I survived the holidays, I must be rewarded” list.

Interview with Varèse Sarabande!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 28th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Varèse-Sarabande-logo

I had the extreme pleasure to talk with Cary Mansfield (the guy who runs the Pop/Soundtrack section of Varèse Sarabande), and discuss the resurgence of vinyl, soundtracks, Record Store Day, and some new releases. Mr. Mansfield has been working for Varèse Sarabande for over 21 years and has seen the uprising of the digital age of media and music, the fall of analog and vinyl, and of course its resurrection over the last few years, as he sheds some light onto the format, along with some really cool and upcoming titles.

Will Smith’s name and company, Overbrook Entertainment, has been linked to what’s been referred to as a ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air‘ reboot, but that’s not quite accurate. The studio is definitely involved in making a family comedy that has a slight resemblance to the series that transformed the Fresh Prince from the rapper we loved, to the on-screen entertainer that’s taken over the world.

Meryl Streep is the most amazing actress. Ever. I know that’s a bold statement, I’ll try to earn some goodwill by noting that Audrey Hepburn is my pick for second best. I’ve never hidden the fact that Streep gives me major lady-wood and I’d buy a ticket to watch her read the phone book. One of my favorite flicks to watch her shine in is ‘Mama Mia‘. I have a major weak spot for musicals and the golden-haired goddess singing and dancing was a natural favorite, so, of course, I have been incredibly excited for ‘Ricki and the Flash‘ since I heard it was announced.

This whole re-make thing is nothing short of annoying when one of your favorite movies is zeroed in on as the next target.

All to often in cosmetic surgeries the end product is completely unrecognized, the same thing happens with retooled shows. Needless to say my first words were ‘Damnit Janet’ when I read that ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show‘ was the project in Fox’s crosshairs.

Top 10 Soundtracks We Want To See Released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

say-anything

Many of you might already know that I love listening to movie soundtracks. I always have. Since I was a little tyke who could barely see over a counter, I was infatuated with movie scores and soundtracks, particularly the ‘E.T.‘ original motion picture score and the ‘Beverly Hill Cop‘ soundtrack. From there, my love and passion grew for all types of music. My parents had a pretty good record collection that included all three original ‘Star Wars’ albums, ‘The Wizard of Oz‘, and ‘Star Trek I and II’ to just name a few. Throughout the years, I now have a fun record collection that spans all genres of music from Frank Zappa to Rage Against the Machine, from R.L. Burnside to The Pixies, and so on. Along the way, digging through the dirty stacks of crates at local record shops and estate sales, I became hell bent on having one of the best Soundtrack collections. And over the past several years, I’ve been lucky enough to acquire some very sought after albums. But there are still so many soundtracks that have never found their way to vinyl, either commercially or ever really. So here is a list in the hopes that maybe Varèse Sarabande, Mondo, or Death Waltz will consider releasing these albums in the near future.

This all-chick rock band is as badass as it gets in rock music. Not to mention the drummer’s name is Janet Weiss (you should get that reference). But we told you that they were releasing a new album soon, which is called ‘No Cities to Love‘, which will hit shelves on the 20th. Highly suggest you pick it up.

Her rise as a DJ gives us the title in spades as she discovers where she was meant to be all along.

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

Neil Patrick Harris Bringing Variety Show To NBC!!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 27th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

neil-patrick-harris-the-out-list-hbo

 

Depending on your age, when you hear the name Neil Patrick Harris, you either think of ‘How I Met Your Mother‘, or like me, it’s ‘Doogie Howser, M.D.‘ A 16 year old NPH stole the collective heart of girls everywhere when he played the prodigious child doctor. From that day forward, Harris would be a steady presence on TV. He appeared in numerous one-off series and made-for-TV movies that kept him in front of a camera just enough to make us want more. In addition to earning a spot that would cement his name, once again, in the annals of hit series with ‘How I Met Your Mother‘, he lent his voice to multiple animated ventures. NPH’s ever evolving resume led to a singing role as the title character in Joss Whedon’sDr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog‘. The thespian has hit the boards on Broadway in between his recorded projects and his most recent theatre stint was the titular part in ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch‘ where he drew rave reviews from even the most staunch critics. Hedwig is now being played by Michael C. Hall.

Martin Scorsese is one of my favorite directors, if he attaches his name to a project, I watch it, even if I’m not interested in the subject matter, that he hasn’t led me wrong, yet. This unashamed love of his work is why one of my favorite films EVER is ‘The Departed‘. The mob, action, Boston and even including ‘Dropkick Murphys‘ on the soundtrack – that movie was an across the board win for me. So you can understand where I’m coming from when I see the famed director set to exec produce an authorized documentary on one of the most iconic bands of the 60’s, ‘The Grateful Dead‘. Excitement ensues.

Find a kid, ask them “Who ya gonna call?” Depending on the answer, you can judge if their parents rock the gig of raising their man-child. If they answer with the obligatory “Ghostbusters!”, then you know these are kids that will go far in life. Every kid needs a solid bedrock of film savviness to draw references from for the rest of their lives. What kind of parent just lets the kids watch the movies without immersing them in all of the gloriousness that encompasses the franchise? In addition to the multitude of zingers and one-liners is the theme song that will stay in the cannon of 80’s pop culture forever.

Sure, I’m not a transplant surgeon or even a serial killer tracker for the FBI, but I’ve got the most gravy job out there. Where else can I stay in the relative comfort of my own home, write about TV, movies, singers and theatre shows I love? I’m sure we can all do that from our parents’ basement, but I don’t have prison pallor from living underground for months on end with the only break to be for a Cheetos run. Part of this awesome opportunity I have in writing for Boomstick, is that I’m not only able, but encouraged to go see concerts, theatre runs, films whatever the case may be. It’s good being me! So I didn’t start this just to brag on my glorious job, I get to tell you all about a fantastic event I attended last Friday and the artist I got to spend some one-on-one time with.

We all knew that creating the N.W.A. biopic, ‘Straight Outta Compton‘ was going to make some headlines in some form or another. I didn’t expect the production to get so much attention, especially this early on. The biggest shocker came in the form of an extremely real drive-by shooting when the crew was filming near the Compton courthouse. The unplanned violence gave the crew a good scare, but it’s back to business as usual.
