Flashlite #12

April 24th, 2008

The newest Flashlite edition of The Little Lighthouse brings home Melvins who have a smashing brand new album Nude With Boots. We also have two new names, The Surgens are finally in the playlist and we also have The Birdinumnums. They hail from Los Angeles and are brought to us by Pamita. She has her [...]

The Birdinumnums are coming from Los Angeles. It’s a new showcase for Pam Moore who used to be in The Neptunas, Cheap Chick (and several other bands) and Andrew Chojnacki from the Peachfuzz. It’s a power-pop deal with gorgeous melodies and vocal equally split between Pam and Andrew. Their first CD, She Say Go is [...]

(Written long time ago for the old site) Cheap Trick is one of the most entertaining bands on planet Earth. They started in 70′s but their roots go all the wat back in late 60′s when Rick Nielsen and Tom Peterson played together in a band called Fuse. They were one of those Americans who [...]

Flashlite #11

April 17th, 2008

Welcome to a new Little Lighthouse episode, this time full with interesting new (and not so new) records. Preparing one of my previous shows, I came across the news that Austin TX band Glass Eye had a brand new record in 2006. So, I promptly got it and here it is in the brand new [...]

Flashlite #10

April 10th, 2008

Sad news comes to us from Germany. Klaus Dinger, one of the founders of what we know now as kraut rock died on March 21st. He was a founder of Kraftwerk and before they went fully synth, he got out and found another big kraut rock band Neu. As a tribute to Dinger, we play [...]

Once upon a time in Austin TX there was an extraordinary band called Glass Eye. Kathy and Brian were in it. Glass Eye had a timeless sound that was difficult to place. With full drum sound, heavy bass and Katy’s spacey vocals, they were completely different than any other 80s underground act. You could say [...]

Flashliste #9

April 3rd, 2008

So, I went record shoping to the My Mind’s Eye record store in Cleveland and I bought two 45s pretty much randomly, one by Peggy Scott and Jo Jo Benson, and the other one by James and Lucky Peterson. They turned out pretty cool, so we get to check those two out in the newest [...]

As the google search indicates, Australian four Luke, David, Jess and Alex are among several bands that named their band Mona Lisa Overdrive after William Gibson’s novel. In todays alienating world, many readers seem to find a shelter in cyber-reality and super-powers of Matrix that in Gibson’s novels has god-like powers. So you’d expect some [...]

Chick Graning

April 3rd, 2008

(Written long time ago for the old site) Chick Graning has one of those bizarre rock’n’roll biographies which make your head spin. He started in Boston and hung out there with all the great underground names in the late eighties. Then he formed his own band Anastasia Screamed that recorded a couple of singles and [...]

Wanda Jackson And The Rubes

April 3rd, 2008

Wanda Jackson is one of the legends of rock’n’roll. Possibly the very first woman rocking out in the 50′s when the whole thing was a “man’s game”. With her raspy southern accent and attractive looks she definitely left a mark. Still, after all these years she is recording and touring. She recently put out an [...]
