Fantastic Plastic (Severn Records). Review by James Mann.
One of the most successful rock bands of the ’90s attracted thousands of fans to its recent Orlando concert. Christopher Long was there.
WJRR’s annual Earthday Birthday is a daylong, sweat-soaked, outdoor concert celebration — featuring some of the biggest bands in the biz. Christopher Long found much to love on the smaller stages.
After nearly a decade’s hiatus, Gavin Rossdale has relaunched BUSH, and a super sold-out show in Orlando lets Jen Cray know that she’s not the only one excited to see this band back together.
Gavin Rossdale may be a musical shapeshifter (Bush, Institute, solo), but he never fails to entertain a crowd. At his recent Orlando show, Jen Cray was bowled over by Mr. Gwen Stefani, and swept away completely by opening band Nico Vega.
Failure Looks So Good (In Music We Trust). Review by Tim Wardyn.
What is in a name? Well, Mortimer Taylor Coleridge, Professor Fillmore Skinny, and Bertrand Fuddle suggest oddly mannered eccentrics contrived to knee-jerk the reader into a fantastical parallel world where it’s all evolutionary biology, hot dogs and Gwen Stefani. S D Green explores whether or not it’s a world worth visiting.
