Boy George : House of Blues, Chicago. April 26, 2014. Anticipation was bursting at the seams of a sold out House of Blues just before midnight Saturday as Boy George swept into town with a nine-piece band supporting his first solo studio album in 18 years, This Is What I Do. What... Between that retooled, range-accommodating sound and George’s pride over the unbelievably belated batch of new material, the evening read much closer to a slowly percolating groove than an all out dance party. Extremely loud chatter had George calling for respect and questioning why those folks even bothered coming in the first place, and while everyone sheepishly lowered their voices for his low-key take on George Harrison’s “Any Road,” another hour of...
Hello, My Name Is Tommy Illinois Entertainer : You and Cheech have been reunited for the last few years, but spent so much time apart. Tommy Chong: Well the funny thing is Cheech initiated the break. He wanted to get away from me and he wanted to go on his own. Then over the years when he wanted to come back, I wasn’t ready, and when I wanted to get back together, he wasn’t ready. ” My son intercepted the email and put his own words to it that we should get back together again, and the next thing you knew, Cheech was showing up at my house for rehearsals. Everything’s ordained in this world and it’s meant to be. We were meant to be apart for that long and now we’re back together and better than ever. That was a defining moment in the life of Cheech & Chong because it defined our relationship. He’s outside banging on the door and I don’t know who it is so I won’t let him in. We’re a great study in miscommunication and I think everybody can relate to it. Every father, every husband, every wife and everybody relates to that. You hear one thing and you think another and that’s really what defines the Cheech & Chong brand.
Roland TR-8. Performance Rhythm Machine. It’s not an understatement to say Roland’s TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines changed the face of popular music, launching post modern soul (Marvin Gaye) and Hip Hop (Beastie Boys, 2 Live Crew) to early Techno (Juan Atkins) and every electronic music... Considered a second rate version of the Linn drum machines of the early 80s, Roland’s “affordable” model($1100 list price in 1982) became the most sampled drum sounds of the Reagan era. Looking to capture the magic of those drum machines, Roland has released The TR-8 what they’re calling “a performance rhythm machine that melds the legendary sound and vibe of the TR-808 and TR-909 with features and functions for the modern age. In developing the TR-8, Roland obsessively analyzed and faithfully recreated every detail and nuance of the analog circuitry of the original models including the snap of the 808. the thud of the 909. the robotic click of an 808 rim shot or a... Tune and Decay knobs are now present on every instrument, and the Bass Drum and Snare Drum have additional controls such as Attack, Snappy, and Comp.
