MTV 2012 Video Music Awards: Is Anyone Watching?

By Helen Bach | August 29, 2012

But does anyone really watch MTV enough to know this show is coming up? I don’t think so. I forgot all about them and I write about music every day. The only reason I did remember was a commercial while I was watching Jackass the other night.

VMA Nominations 2012

By Iman Lababedi | August 1, 2012

The annual irrelevance known as the VMA’s will take place and any chance of it having in the slightly the relevance it did 20 years ago will be deader than Michael Jackson.

Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards 2012

By Iman Lababedi | June 13, 2012

By Iman Lababedi | May 10, 2012

Last year I went to see Girl in A Coma at the Studio At Webster Hall and was impressed if not overwhelmed. But Alyson Camus caught them a couple of months later and was blown away, which suggest maybe it was me or maybe it was really early on the tour

By Iman Lababedi | April 18, 2012

How corrupt and vile the hall of Fame: these nasty little folks are loke the corleone’s writing out a hit list. It is almost the opposite of everything great about rock: dumbass egotists leaving their foul fingerprints on your imagination.

By Alyson Camus | April 13, 2012

When the nominations for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame were first announced I had mixed emotions but, in an effort to be positive, wanting to make the most of things for the fans and with their enthusiasm, I was honored, excited and hoped that somehow this would be a good thing.

Vote For The Suicide Dolls: Best New New England Band

By Iman Lababedi | February 28, 2012

And not just because they are featured in rock nyc’s perpetually in post-production commercial, or even because Helen thinks Michelle Montevan is the nicest person, but because they fucking rock like Gods.

"Man Or Muppet" Wins Best Song Oscar 2012

By Iman Lababedi | February 28, 2012

a depressing identity crises which sounds like a moped being driven over puppies and which just won the sureeally out of it Oscars award for best original song in a movie for 2012. Best song??? Bret McKenzie’s “Man Or Muppet” was a showstopper alright. It stopped the movie dead in its tracks and it never recovered from it.

One Hour Of The Grammys Or Pure Purgatory For The Musically Inclined

Everything except Bruno’s performance as the Ricky Martin of modern pop, everything about the Grammys I suffered through was duff. Not good enough.

The Beach Boys collaborating with Maroon 5 and Foster the People at the Grammy Awar

By Alyson Camus | February 10, 2012

And please, I don’t want to see shirtless Adam Levine singing ‘God Only Knows What I’d Be Without You’, that would spoil the song forever.

By Alyson Camus | February 6, 2012

Vernon was actually asked to perform as part of a performance with another artist, as he explained: ‘We wanted to play our music, but were told that we couldn’t play. We had to do a collaboration with someone else’.

Only Two Songs Nominated For Oscar

By Iman Lababedi | January 28, 2012

Mary J. Blige twittered her disapproval at being snubbed by the Oscars for her “The Living Proof” song off “The Help” soundtrack. Well, the song sucks, one of her long jorneys into womanhood things, but it is a million times better than these two.

By Iman Lababedi | January 15, 2012

am paying $200 odd dollars a month to the thieving bastards at Time/Warner and the thieving bastards at cablevision have taken MSG (so no Knicks) and Fuse off Time Warner. Begging an answer to the musical question: how soon is now to burn down both institutions of advance thievery.

Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj And The Painting Of Dorian Gray

By Iman Lababedi | January 14, 2012

Wigs and ironing your hair might not necessarily constitute real life plastic work, but it doesn’t help. And they look so doctored, so invasion of the body snatchers weirdedness that instead of being sexy they are scary.
