MJTV: Radiohead - Karma Police


Another classic from the archives. If Quentin Tarantino ever shot a Radiohead video, it would probably look like this...

MJTV: The White Stripes - Fell in Love with a Girl


The groundbreaking lego video that brought the Stripes to the world's attention.

MTJV: Matthew Ryan - Everybody Always Leaves


Music video for a track from the new Matthew Ryan CD "From a Late Night High Rise". Matthew's a friend of MJ and I'm glad to see this work getting some of the best reviews of his underrated career. I think the CD is only available for download on iTunes or from www.matthewryanonline.com

MJTV: Ryan Adams - Come Pick Me Up


Ryan with the Cardinals on Letterman doing the song I didn't think I'd ever see on TV... F-bomb and shit edited for sensitive ears...

MJTV: X - White Girl


The legendary LA band live from what looks like their last tour around 2004...

Friday, December 15, 2006

MJTV: The Clash - Interview on Tom Synder


More rare footage from 1981 when the Clash was on the verge...

MJTV: Bob Dylan On Johnny Cash Show


From Cash's late 60's variety show... rare vintage stuff!

MJTV: Ok Go - Here It Goes Again


Best video performance of the year...

MJTV: Nausea - Beck


I think this is an "unofficial" video, but if so, it's still pretty clever...

Thursday, December 14, 2006

MJTV: The Black Keys - Your Touch


Gunshots, a magic egg, ghosts, explosions and the Black Keys act... Pretty much everything you'd want in a video, right?

MJTV: Starsailor - This Time (Live Acoustic)


Starsailor's lead singer James Walsh, live & acoustic at the Apple Store in San Fran...

MJTV: Jet - Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

A great live performance... song of the year?? If not this, then what?

MJTV: The Hold Steady - Chips Ahoy!


Funny low-rent video of the song that I can't get out of my head. Craig Finn has a face made for radio...

MJTV: The Decemberists - O Valencia


Recent performance from the Letterman show...

Cheap Thrills: 12.12.06

Cold War Kids have a downloadable EP of live covers, "Benefit At the District". You can download the MP3s and cover art here. Highlights are Elvis Costello's "Indoor Fireworks" and Fiona Apple's "Fast As You Can"...

http://coldwarkids.com/news.htm

Track List:
1. Indoor Fireworks
2. Fast As You Can
3. Die Die Die
4. I Don't Wanna Grow Up
5. Tonite, You Belong To Me
6. The Littlest Birds

MJTV: Cold War Kids - Hang Me Up To Dry


The internet buzz band from Long Beach... the song's better than the video in this case.

MJTV: Pete Yorn - For Us


A very strange video... what's up with that bird thing?

MJTV: U2 - Window in the Skies (in Tokyo)


Yeah, the new U2 single is a nod to the Beatles. Here's a version from Japanese TV, probably live vocals to a backing track and with on-screen kareoke lyrics. Pretty cheesy by U2 standards...

Everyone automatically defers to the Beatles or Stones when it comes time to talk about the greatest band ever. More and more, I think the case can be made that it's U2...

MJTV: Primal Scream - Country Girl


It never hurts to put a hot girl in a video, but this time it fits the song like a glove...

MJTV: Sufjan Stevens - Chicago


A live San Francisco performance of one of the top songs of 2006 on Musical Justice...

Buy These Now!

New in stores today from MJ artists... a very light holiday release schedule
  • Sonic Youth - The Destroyed Room: B-Sides And Rarities
  • Arab Strap - Ten Years of Tears
  • Tim Finn - Imaginary Kingdom
  • We Are Scientists - Crap Attack

MJTV: Drive-By Truckers - Lookout Mountain (live at The Metro in Chicago IL)

MJTV: Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dani California


Because great and commercial don't always have to be mutually exclusive. Live performance from Fuse...

MJTV: James McMurtry - We Can't Make It Here


Live version of McMurtry's scorching indictment of the ongoing war against the Middle Class declared by the current power elites. From the Chicago show "Corporate Country Sucks"...

MJTV: Margot & The Nuclear So And So's - Jen Is Bringing The Drugs


My favorite new band so far in 2006 is Margot & the Nuclear So & So's. This is a rare intimate acoustic performance from thetripwire.com...

MJTV: Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict a Riot


Since the videos I've included so far have been older, here's the Chiefs live from the 2005 Glastonbury Festival. When Ricky Wilson goes into the crowd, you gotta wonder if he's coming back in one piece...

Thursday, October 19, 2006

MJTV: Social D - Bad Luck


Live Distortion from the House of Blues in the OC...

MJTV: Replacements - Kiss Me On The Bus (live)

Introducing MJTV

The Jayhawks - Waiting For The Sun


Getting back into the swing of the blog with a new feature I'm calling MJTV. I'm going to be featuring video of bands, concerts and all things related to Musical Justice. First up... The Jayhawks.

Bands like the Jayhawks are the reason that Musical Justice exists. It would be a close contest between them and the Replacements to say which one was the best band in the past 25 years that never got the success they were due.

This video corrects the notion that this was just Marc Olsen's band in those early days... a young Gary Louris sings lead on what is, to many, their best song...

Breaking the Radio Silence

Hey all...

It's been awhile since the last post here. There's a lot going on personally these days for me. I'm getting married and moved into a new house (with lots of space for all my CDs and vinyl and cats) with a lot of DIY projects that needed to be done before the move. Actually, I'm still working on a lot of that stuff, including building a studio area for Musical Justice in my basement that should allow me to do several things on the station that I have wanted to do for awhile. Whatever other bandwidth I have for the station has gone into keeping the playlists fresh. But today I'm breaking radio silence on the blog to send anyone that reads this to go listen to the last days at WOXY.com.

WOXY was/is the best independent radio station in the world. They've been suffering financial problems since deciding to try to make a go of it as an internet-only station awhile ago. Last week, they announced that September 15th would be the last day barring a miracle with deep pockets. The station's always been a little more special for me, perhaps, because I was one of the people they consulted with for ideas on programming a modern rock station back before they went on the air. At the time, I was an entertainment writer for the Miami (University) Student paper and had written articles on the poor quality of local radio. After buying the station, the new owner Doug Balogh and I talked several times as he gathered ideas from many sources that would ultimately become The Future of Rock and Roll. I graduated in the summer of 1983 and that fall, 97-X was on the air. I watched proudly from afar as it became widely recognized as one of the best independent modern rock stations in the world.

WOXY is one of the few places that really plays new music... first... breaking new records before you hear them anywhere else. In many ways, it was the inspiration for what I do now with Musical Justice. I was always pretty excited when I'd find something that they weren't playing yet and could get it on the air before them like when I brought back import-only Tom Vek and Hard-Fi CDs from my trip to London last summer. Needless to say, it was a competition in my mind only... :)

So, for the rest of this week, go listen to WOXY. Listen to how radio should be done. I can only hope to be a poor man's version of them with my one man operation out of my new basement bunker here in the Dust Bowl.

I Predict Hit & Run?

According to the Kaiser Chiefs website, lead singer Ricky Wilson narrowly escaped becoming road kill...
He's the luckiest man alive, because he is still alive, it sounds daft, but a 'Ricky trademark jump' has probably saved his life. The jump meant he was flipped over the top of the car, hitting the windscreen, rather than getting trapped under it. He was crossing on a green pedestrian light. Whether it was a joyrider, wreckless driving or drunk driving we still don't know. Police are investigating - we'd like to thank the witnesses that have come forward so far.

The Money Shot: Reinventing The Strokes

The Independent interviews the band...
That The Strokes really care about their music has been well documented, but there's an ulterior motive to Casablancas' perfectionism that is less known: "I want to get better at my music so that I don't have to justify myself to journalists anymore," he says. Casablancas finds interviews excruciating. "Doing press is like talking to a bunch of bad psychiatrists," he chuckles. "It's so draining when every time you're talking to someone you know what you're saying is being judged."

Ticketmaster = Ticketscalper??

You decide... Here's the NY Times article.
Late this year the company plans to begin auctioning the best seats to concerts through ticketmaster.com.

With no official price ceiling on such tickets, Ticketmaster will be able to compete with brokers and scalpers for the highest price a market will bear.

"The tickets are worth what they're worth," said John Pleasants, Ticketmaster's president and chief executive. "If somebody wants to charge $50 for a ticket, but it's actually worth $1,000 on eBay, the ticket's worth $1,000. I think more and more, our clients — the promoters, the clients in the buildings and the bands themselves — are saying to themselves, `Maybe that money should be coming to me instead of Bob the Broker.' "

Coming Attractions: The Black Keys' Magic Potion

Billboard reports on the upcoming release from Radiohead's opening act...
Akron, Ohio-based rock duo the Black Keys have signed with Nonesuch Records. The group's label debut, "Magic Potion," will be released Sept. 12. As previously reported, the 12-track set will feature such songs as "Your Touch," "The Flame" and "It's Just Got To Be."

The Money Shot: E-Music Don't Need No Stinkin' DRM

Interesting article on the #2 internet music retailer...
"It's really not a philosophical decision; it's a practical one," says Pakman. "Early on, the belief was that we had to sell music in the only universally compatible format that existed. TiVo was just about to come out with MP3 playback on their machine and we didn't know if that was going to be big. There were a bunch of MP3 players on the market, including the iPod, and that market was growing. There were MP3 car stereos happening. There weren't any phones, but you can see that's where it was going. Everyone was putting MP3 in their device, so why not sell in a format that works in all those places?"

R.E.M. joins fight to stop the end of the world as we know it...

Another reason to love/respect the gents in R.E.M...

R.E.M. is among a group of artists and musicians who have created their own petition requesting legislation they say would ensure that the Internet would remain a level playing field. More than 650,000 people have signed a petition supporting the legislation, while telecommunications companies push for a measure that would leave control in the hands of the Federal Communications Commission.

Network neutrality, also called Internet neutrality, is the idea that the smallest companies and writers have the same access, reach and control as their larger competitors on the Internet. Those seeking to protect the system with federal laws claim that neutrality is what has made the Internet popular, democratic and a haven for free speech.

Look out! We're taking over the world...

This UK article says that internet radio has surpassed AM/FM radio over there. Is it true in the United States too? I'd think that a higher percentage of our listenership is done over car radios and that satellite radio also has an impact. But maybe someday soon, you'll be able to listen to Musical Justice over the air too and then it's all over for the big boys! ;)
Nearly one in four (24 per cent) listens online compared with 21 per cent who tune in to analogue broadcasts. Seventeen per cent use digital (Dab) radio and nine per cent get the programmes via their TV. The remaining 29 per cent represent the proportion of Virgin regulars who do not tune in at all on a given day.

The Money Shot: Pretty Girls Make Graves

Harp Magazine gets the band to talk about it's new CD, Elan Vital...
“People may say it’s not punk to use trumpets or accordions, but if you’re doing something different or something you think might be frowned upon by a lot of people, that’s upholding a punk mentality,” says Zollo. “I feel like it’s more punk to go to a show in a suit than it is to have a Mohawk and a skateboard,” says Clark. “Punk was a way of life, now it’s a genre.”

Coming Attractions: Thom Yorke Solo

NME and Billboard discuss the surprise announcement of a Thom Yorke solo CD at a Radiohead fan site ...
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke's debut solo album, "The Eraser," will be released in July via XL Recordings. The set was produced and arranged by longtime Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich. "Inevitably it is more beats and electronics, but it [is] songs," Yorke says of the project in an email to members of Radiohead's W.A.S.T.E. fan organization.

The Money Shot: The Futureheads

The band's new release "News and Tributes" is slotted for June 13th...
"Some people wanted us to make the same record," says Barry Hyde. "We've been playing some songs off our first record for five years. You have enough of it. In rehearsals for this record, we'd stop songs that sounded too typical, like things we'd done before, and try to do something else."

Coming Attractions: OutKast

New OutKast before the end of the summer... has anyone found a copy of the single yet?
After numerous delays, the OutKast film "Idlewild" is now slated to arrive Aug. 25 in U.S. theaters, three days after the release of its LaFace soundtrack. The first single from the album, "Mighty O," leaked online earlier this week. The cut features OutKast's take on Cab Calloway's famous scatting from "Minnie the Moocher."

New World Party Video


I love World Party and I was really glad to see Karl Wallinger playing live again at SXSW this year. Back around 1997, I saw them on their last real U.S. tour and I can honestly say that the only performer that's ever impressed me more with the sheer range and intensity of his musical talents was Prince... and Prince is a much better dancer... ;)

Anyway, after suffering some health issues which nearly took his life, Wallinger's back with the U.S. release of "Dumbing Up". You can see the video for the first single "What Does It Mean Now?" here...

Swapping Music Via the USPS?

Boston.com discusses the new website, lala.com, which is currently in beta test...
''It seems to be perfectly legal," Gibson said, for the same reason that retailers can buy and sell used books and CDs. ''If you are the owner of a particular physical copy of a CD or a book or anything that's copyrighted, you have the right to dispose of that CD or book any way you wish."

The Money Shot: One Pissed Flea

Flea speaks out on the leaking of the new Red Hot Chili Peppers CD to the Internet... ironically, at redhotchilipeppers.com...
"yes, we worked for a year and a half to make the epic record of our lives and it is sad to me for the business reasons of course i think we are selling something really cool and we put all we had into it, 28 songs, 2 hours of the best that we can offer and i think it is a fair deal for everyone and for people to just steal a poor sound quality version of it for free because some asshole stole it and put it on the internet is sad to me."

The Money Shot: Keane's Near-Breakup

Seems that the intensity of recording their next CD almost blew Keane apart...
"It got to the point where I was afraid that I would have to wake up the following morning and think about what I was going to do next," Rice-Oxley said. "To suddenly realize that everything was disappearing was incredibly frightening. We all loved the music we were making so much, but when you're dealing with things that were really personal to all of us, when you immerse yourself in the emotions we were writing about, it can't help but bring up bad things."

The Money Shot: Courtney Love

She's back from rehab and working on a new CD with Linda Perry...

"My dedication right now is to bring back the queen of rock and roll, and that's Courtney Love," she said. "That woman is brilliant, and I can't allow myself as a music lover and someone who really respects that artist to go down with 'America's Sweetheart'. That record sucked. She knows it. The world knows it. It was a horrible, crap-ass record."

  • Bruce Springsteen - We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions

Dylan, G'n'R, Morrissey Top Roskilde Lineup

The lineup for Denmark's Roskilde Festival's been announced and it dwarfs pretty much anything here in the States. Here's some highlights:

ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, ARCTIC MONKEYS, CLAP YOUR HANDS SAY YEAH, GEORGE CLINTON PARLIAMENT / FUNKADELIC, DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE, BOB DYLAN, EDITORS , FRANZ FERDINAND, GUNS N’ ROSES, KAISER CHIEFS, LADY SOVEREIGN, JENNY LEWIS, MORRISSEY, THE RACONTEURS, JOSH ROUSE, SIGUR RÓS, THE STROKES, RUFUS WAINWRIGHT, ROGER WATERS PERFORMING THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, KANYE WEST

The Money Shot: The Flaming Lips

Harp interviews the always-quoteable Coyne:
Someone asked me if I had a title for the record, and I didn’t really have one but I said, “I have this title, it sounds kind of cool.” It went along, all this sort of stuff about how insane the religious right has become, and all this kind of inner politics of suicide bombers, and the whole mentality of the fanatical religious freaks, and how in a sense they all are self-proclaimed mystics. They seem to know some insight that just us regular people would never see.

Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before...

Pete Doherty's doing his best to prove that there is such a thing as bad publicity... this is just sad.

The Babyshambles singer was stopped by plain clothes police officers while driving. According to a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police: "At 14.10 this afternoon two men, one aged 27 the other 21, were arrested after a vehicle was stopped in Roman Road, E2, by plain clothes officers in an unmarked police car on routine patrol. They were arrested for what was believed to be class A drugs with intent to supply and both men are currently being held in a east London police station. The older man was the passenger the younger the driver."

The new arrest comes just hours after Doherty was sentenced for admitting seven charges for possession of drugs at Thames Magistrates Court.

The Money Shot: Rhett Miller

Tufts Daily interviews the Old 97's frontman...
"This girl in Kentucky put us [the Old 97's] up one night - I shouldn't even tell this story, it's so sad!" Miller says. "The drummer, Phillip [Peeples], and I came downstairs, and she was sitting in the kitchen. There's a bunch of Hershey's bar wrappers on the floor, and there's three or four left in the pack, and she has chocolate all over her mouth, and she says, 'Do you want a Hershey bar? I hate them. I hate them.'"Miller shakes his head. "I wanted to give her a hug," he says. "It was just so sad - you heard the whole story in that sentiment."

On the Road with... Mark Olson & Gary Louris

Billboard reports the best news I'm likely to hear today even though I'm not on the West Coast. It's a short list of dates, but let's hope this gets some momentum...

After regrouping for a tour last year, Mark Olson and Gary Louris have once again reunited for brief Western U.S. swing this spring. The former principals of the now-defunct Jayhawks have 10 dates slated, beginning April 28 in Tuscon, Ariz. "There's obviously an audience for it and we like to do it. Sure, it's a bit of a money-maker, it's a job, but it's going to be fun," Louris tells Billboard.com. "One of the really appealing parts is to hang out with Mark and be friends again."While there are no official plans for the two to record again, Louris does not rule out the possibility. "I wouldn't want it to be the record that I have to market for the next two years, but I would enjoy making a record with Mark," the 51-year-old songwriter says. "We'd just have to find the time. But we wouldn't do a record that requires two months in the studio. Mark likes to write and make stuff in a grassroots situation. We don't get too fancy."
And the tour dates...

April 28: Tuscon, Ariz. (Rialto Theater)
April 29: Flagstaff, Ariz. (Orpheum Theater)
May 1-2: Los Angeles (Troubadour)
May 3: Solana Beach, Calif. (Belly Up)
May 6: Santa Cruz, Calif. (Rio Theater)
May 7-8: San Francisco (Great American Music Hall)
May 11: Portland, Ore. (Aladdin)
May 12: Seattle (Showbox)

Jack & Coke

NME talks about it here... and here's the link to the leaked ad.

The much anticipated Jack White-penned Coca-Cola advert has leaked on the internet. The White Stripes man has written and sings the advert's songs which boasts an uplifting, brass-led tune and the chorus: "It's the right thing to do, and you know it, It's inside of you, so just show it, love is the truth."

Coming Attractions: Neil Young

Neil takes on the Pres...
Veteran rocker Neil Young has recorded a protest album featuring an anti-Iraq war track with "a holy vow to never kill again" and a song titled "Let's Impeach the President." The 10-track set, "Living with War," was recorded this month by a "power trio" -- electric guitar, bass and drums -- plus trumpet and a 100 voices, Young announced on his Web site.

Buy These Now 4.18.06

Any week that features a new DBT CD is automatically a cut above the rest. The live Stereophonics CD looks like an attempt to cash in on their live rep. Overall, I'll give the week a "B" on the strength of DBT's effort which'll make a lot of year end Top 10s...

  • Drive-By Truckers - A Blessing and a Curse
  • Richard Butler - Richard Butler
  • Elefant - The Black Magic Show
  • The Secret Machines - Ten Silver Drops
  • Stereophonics - Live from Dakota
  • Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs - Under the Covers Vol. 1

The Money Shot: Stooges Reunite!

Iggy and the boys are working on their first new album since 1973...

"All the same passions and problems are there," Pop tells Billboard of writing with Scott and Ron Asheton. "But the problems are in a more muted style. I'm still the showoff in the group that gets all the attention. Everyone has their role. It's pretty much the way it was in high school."

It's Been Awhile...

Not sure if anyone's out there, but I think it's time to fire this blog back up. There's still a lot of behind the scenes stuff going on and taking longer than expected. That's the life of a one-man shop, eh?

Anyway, I'm gonna do my best to hit this on a daily (weekday) basis going forward. Let's see how far I get...

Still here...

Hey everyone... sorry about the lack of blogging this week. All I can say is there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes and some big announcements on the horizon... just not quite yet.

For those of you who are having problems reaching the Live365 website to listen to the Musical Justice radio station, evidently there is a problem with Live365's DNS entry. Simply put, DNS is what translates the internet address you type (such as www.live365.com) into an internet address that a computer connected to the internet can read (such as 216.235.80.35). These entries are stored in large databases and your internet service provider (ISP) gets updates, usually on some kind of regular schedule ranging from hours to days.

At this point, if you are still having a problem connecting, it's likely that your ISP doesn't update these tables as frequently as some do. I'm able to connect to the website from from my work connection, but my home Road Runner account was still having a problem as of noon today.

Since you can't get to the Live365 website if you're experiencing this problem, you won't be able to see the workaround they've posted so I'm going to cut and paste it below if you are so inclined to give it a try.

We want to apologize to those who are experiencing the unexpected issues due to a change on our Domain Name Service server. We expect a number of affected ISPs to pick up the new information by 6 PM tonight.

In the mean time, you can access Live365 by manually setting your computer's DNS to point directly to our DNS server at 216.235.80.35 as a temporary work-around.

Windows users:

Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and select your local network.
Click Properties, and then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
Click Properties.
Click ‘Advanced’ and select the ‘DNS’ Window.
Click ‘Add’ to add our DNS 216.235.80.35
Select our DNS address from the list and click on the ‘up’ arrow to the right and move our DNS to the top of your DNS list.
Click ‘OK’ and restart your computer.

Mac users:
Open your Mac Hard Drive
Click ‘Applications’
Open ‘System Preferences’
Under ‘Internet&Network’, Select ‘Network’
Click ‘Configure’
Select the ‘TCP/IP’ tab
Add our DNS server address 216.235.80.35
Click "Apply Now" and restart your computer.

Unfortunately, depending on 3rd party service provider’s domain settings, some networks may take longer to update than others to pick up the DNS changes throughout the entire Internet. The estimated time for the DNS updates to be completed by 6pm tonight.

There may be a few ISPs that are not able to access Live365 at this time. We will set up a forum for this.

If you continue to have problems please let me know by e-mail or in the comments.

We Don't Need No Stinkin' Hummer Money

The Thermals turn down big bucks from Hummer...
The Thermals, a rambunctious rock band from Portland, Ore., were en route between gigs last year when they got a phone call from their label, Sub Pop. Hummer wanted to pay them $50,000 for the right to use their song "It's Trivia" in a commercial.

"We thought about it for about 15 seconds, maybe," lead singer Hutch Harris said.

They said no.

The Money Shot: MP3 Blogs and PR

How long before the "new" media becomes as controlled and corrupt as the old media?
"At this point MP3s are a necessary evil," says one New York-based new media specialist. Legality prevents PR firms from leaking material themselves, he says, but when an MP3 blogger is contacted, the expectation is that s/he will leak at least a song or two. The strategy preys on the blog world's unquenchable thirst for the new—both rarities and pre-releases. "I'm doing you a favor and you're doing me a favor at the same time," says another new media specialist. "We'll scratch each other's back."

The Money Shot: Neko Case

The New Porno star talks shit with Macleans...

"Thriller sucks," says Neko Case, sitting in a Toronto breakfast place, listening to Michael Jackson's Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough. "I don't know why the f--- everyone loves Thriller. That shit is cheesy. Off the Wall -- that's the album." This morning, Case, 35, has a beast of a cold -- running nose, puffy eyes and gravelly voice -- and she's in a critical mood. Later she declares: "I'm not into the Beatles. I know every one of their songs, every word -- because my parents played it over and over. But it doesn't seem like music to me. I know it's genius. But I don't ever want to hear it again."

TiVo Alert

After two weeks of nothing due to the Olympics, the late night gang comes roaring back with something worthy every night this week.

Monday - The Strokes (Letterman), Rosanne Cash (Leno)
Tuesday - Dropkick Murphys (Conan)
Wednesday - Dwight Yoakum (Leno), Belle & Sebastian (Conan), Supergrass (Carson Daly), Ok Go (Kimmel)
