CD Review The Lonely Hearts - Disaster Footage at Night

Lonely Hearts

Disaster Footage at Night
Record Label: Three Ring Records
Review by Cactus Joe
December 2008

“Disaster Footage at Night” is the second album by San Francisco folk rock duo THE LONELY HEARTS, consisting of Andre Perry and John Lindenbaum. Described as “American folk meets bedroom rock,” there is great variety on this well-produced album from the mellow to the more aggressive. Accompanied by three backing musicians, all these songs are hooky with lyrics that range from the introspective to the more storyline narrative.

December 2008

The self-titled debut album from NYC radio host and R&B bassist JEFF FOXX (session player for CHAKA KHAN, AL JARREAU, ISAAC HAYES, and ROY AYERS) offers a pleasant and soulful musical ride. It’s a funky, smooth, creamy and delicious, take-her-home-after-the-date-for-pillow-talk album. It was produced and co-written with Bernard Belle (MICHAEL JACKSON, BOBBY BROWN).

Nuclear Children

Paint it Red
Record Label: Champion of the Arts Records
Review by Cactus Joe
December 2008

THE NUCLEAR CHILDREN’s single “Paint it Red” preambles the band’s soon-to-be-released full length studio album, “Ten Sordid Tales of Schaden and Freude” (Champion of the Arts Records) due out in early 2009.  Energetic, intense, and sarcastic, the band’s sound has been compared to Modest Mouse, The Pixies, and Social Distortion.

Ringers

Headlocks and Highkicks
Record Label: Fort Mason Entertainment
Review by Cactus Joe
December 2008

“Headlocks and Highkicks,” the second album from LA indie rockers THE RINGERS, is aptly named for its aggressive, high-energy pomp rock sound assault. Dynamic changes and bold song-writing, I give this one 4 stars and a place on my prestigious CD rack.

An Evening With John Statz
Record Label: Self Released
Review by Cactus Joe
November 2008

“An Evening with John Statz” is the third self-produced release by Madison folk musician John Statz. It was recorded live at Uncommon Ground coffee shop in Chicago, IL, on April 22, 2008.

“I had put out two studio albums and just wanted to get a live cut of some of those songs and a few new ones,” Statz said, “I was playing Uncommon Ground on the spring tour and they always give you a live recording of what you play. So I figured it would be an easy way to get a good quality live recording.”
The live recording was mastered by Nate Edwards who recorded Statz’s first album, “Dusk Came Slow.”

CD Review Steve Grimm - Keep Your Dreams Alive

Steve Grimm

Keep Your Dreams Alive
Record Label: Self Released
Review by Cactus Joe
November 2008

STEVE GRIMM is probably best known as the front man and drummer of the infamous Milwaukee rock band BAD BOY. But he has a formidable solo career too, recently releasing eight solid rock songs on an album called “Keep Your Dreams Alive.” If you like 80s and 90s classic rock, check out this record. It’s potent.

Touring with Bad Boy, Steve had the envious privilege of sharing the stage with some of the greatest classic rock bands, including AC/DC, Journey, Fleetwood Mac, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Ted Nugent, and Alice Cooper. These influences are apparent in “Keep Your Dreams Alive.”
