I can’t remember exactly how I stumbled onto these guys but they BLEW MY MIND! Royal Blood is just two guys [ bassist/singer Mike Kerr & drummer Ben Thatcher ] kicking out heavy rock, the blessed answer to the crap being pumped out on Top 40 Radio. They caught the attention of Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and now will be touring with the Foos in 2015. Fingers crossed I can get to Toronto to see them! Check them out!
Now I know this is just a pop record (or bubble gum as your man Bono would say) … but it is an awesome pop record! And who doesn’t like a little bubble gum every once and a while. I did not get hooked so much by ‘Shake It Off’ but more by the video below – Blank Space. If she can avoid the implants and tattoos, I suspect we will be hearing Taylor Swift songs for a long time to come!
Growing up, I was a big 'Seinfeld' fan. A show about nothing, what could be better! When the show ended, and Jerry wanted to 'start fresh', he did one show (recorded for a DVD/CD release) where he told all his 'old jokes' and then they would be retired forever. Great Comedy Album!
