Top 5 Modern Day Drummers

OK, so I don’t give the drummers much luv in my reviews- but that’s because they tend to be placed where I can’t see them…or because I tend to gawk at the guitarists and bassists…and vocalists…or because the shit it so complicated that I can’t tell a good one from a bad one. We’ll, either […]

The Wrestler soundtrack

I finally made it out to see The Wrestler this weekend. What a fine film. Beyond the ’80’s ‘finest’ being featured throughout: Cinderella, Ratt, G ‘n’ R, Quiet Riot, Scorpions, after one of Marissa Tomei’s titilating strip club scenes, guess what song comes on? “Jerk It” by the recently HRC reviewed Thunderheist.
