Although after Judas Priests’ ‘Sad Wings of Destiny’ album essentially pre-defined modern metal as having less and less to do w/ African or American roots in the blues, the earliest examples of heaviness w/ […] → Continue Reading {I’m}”Perfect Pitch” Makes Me Puke, & Micr0~bubbles Don’t Affect Tone?!?

Harmolodics 101 For Dummies: Ornette Coleman’s unique music theory

1959: the ‘pianoless’ quartet {a rad concept in itself during post-bop}, Ornette on his white plastic alto sax, Don Cherry on a pocket trumpet, and a rhythm section of Ed Blackwell & Charlie Haden as fluid as the asymmetrical Harmolodic brass. Harmolodic was Ornette’s concept which democratically freed the bass and drums from roles of […] → Continue Reading Harmolodics 101 For Dummies: Ornette Coleman’s unique music theory

No one's soul was sold until much later, and they were the British thieves of our […] → Continue Reading b|u3z + j/\sz = r0ck
