Phil writes: Mike Scott of the Waterboys has tweeted a link to a review of his latest concert where he apparently dedicated this song to the original Lindsay mentioned in the song who was present at the concert. Great opportunity to post this rollicking song. *A 'bang' is a kiss.
Phil writes: The Band are no exception though this footage had to be slotted into the movie and is not of an actual performance from the concert.
urhajos : Still Doesn’t “My mom still doesn’t understand what I do for a living.”
Phil writes: It's on some advert at the moment. Happy to say I can't remember what it's advertising - apart from this great song from an almost great band.
Phil writes: I've just seen 'The Last Waltz' on a big screen for only the second time. I've got it on DVD of course, but watching that, even on a decent TV, is not quite the same thing. This must be the best ever film of a live gig, if only because of the astonishing and extraordinarily varied line-up. Neil Diamond would not seem to be an obvious choice as a guest with The Band but this is a storming performance clearly enjoyed by all concerned.
Joe writes: I worked with them on the album Save The World, Get The Girl which is full of great tunes and lyrics. Here's one of the lesser known ones, The Schemers, the Scroungers and the Rats: And here's the poem Zane Lowe played last night to mark their departure, What If Punk Never Happened: I will always remember the first time I heard an entire crowd shout along with the words "Viva la punk, just one life, anarchy", and the last [...]
Joe writes: I guess this barnstorming single takes Plan B into the territory once occupied by The King Blues: Ill Manors borrows its backing track from this German hip hop track Alles Neu by Peter Fox, which in turn samples Dimitri Shostakovich 's Seventh Symphony .
Elastica came and went so fast, but they happened to leave some solid brit-rock tracks that bring back the mid-ninties like no other. The song was the subject of controversy, due to its overt similarity to another band's work. The intro synthesizer part (later also repeated on guitar) is lifted from the guitar riff in Wire 's " Three Girl Rhumba " and transposed a semitone (the judgment resulted in an out-of-court settlement for which Wire received no compensation). It still rocked. Filed under: Beats , Brit Brit Brit , Oldie Tagged: album , [...]

Phil writes: Watching 'The Last Waltz' again I was reminded again how magnificent the Band were, never mind all the guests. I think this is my favourite Band song and one of my all-time favourite songs period. The Staples Singers are the icing on the cake here.

Soon as I heard the drums in the opening track I was hooked like a sucker carp on the end of a fishing rod. 8 airplane flights, countless hours, and several power naps later, "Oakland,Ohio" was b orn. Ohio native, Vic Freeze teams up with Northern California beat makers Madd Caesar to bring you a glimpse into their world. Go check it out.

Ok, this is a lil project I've been working on the past month or so. It's a mix of some of my favourite artists and tracks from the past few months and some older, kinda unique, tracks I been listening to for a while. It's not all stuff that's been previously featured on Word Is Bond, infact in this compilation there's an unreleased track and a fresh exclusive . If you like it please don't hesitate to drop a comment and spread the word! Really pleased with how this turned out so make sure you listen. [...]
sorry for the bad title. dancey treat from Yolanda Be Cool!
Anyone who complains about going to SXSW is full of crap. I did buy some really sweet arch supports for my chucks though. Pretty old. So, apologies to all the bands, managers, and publicists I DON'T see but want to, and hello to all the new folks we're sure to run into on the trail down there. We owe a few posts to some bands, but those will have to wait till we get back. Real life's a bitch. Also, I just spilled my General Tso's chicken on my entire SXSW folder. True story. Here are some bands [...]
Joe writes: I heard this Phil Ochs song Changes when Digits covered it for a Gordon Lightfoot tribute album. Phil's version sounds ponderous once you've heard Gordon sing it.
Debut LP from Rochester native Kid Called Quest. Has a fair bit of hype about him which you can see from the features of some big, dope names like Big Shug, Skyzoo and Big Pooh. Am sure we'll see more of him in the future. STREAM/BUY (NAME YOUR PRICE) 'Put Your Headphones On' FROM BANDCAMP HERE Kidd Called Quest: Bandcamp • Twitter • Facebook ~lork [...]

Phil writes: An intriguing version of an excellent Roy Harper song.
After watching the movie Bridesmaids, our memories were ignited towards the short-lived career of Wilson Phillips. So much so that we took the time to research the band's biography and their solo careers. It looks like the trio are coming back with a new album real soon. But this track is one from our childhood. It didn't quite make it big, but it was a fun tune to sing along to with high-octane drama. Chynna, who allegedly is the trouble maker of the group, tried her hand at a solo career but failed. She is the daughter of The Mamas [...]
