Review: What Do You Call That Noise? An XTC Discovery Book

Two years ago, I reviewed Andy Partridge and Todd Bernhardt's highly-recommended Complicated Game: Inside the Songs of XTC, a collection of deep-nerding conversations between these two musicians about beloved XTC tracks. While that book was a wonder, it understandably focused on Andy and Andy's contributions to the band. While deepening my love and appreciation for the music of XTC, it left me hungry for more. Enter What Do You Call That Noise? An XTC Discovery Book. I didn't think I could love ...

Legendary surf rock guitarist Dick Dale, RIP

Dick Dale, the "King of the Surf Guitar," has died at age 81. RIP, maestro. Dale's pioneering sound was inspired by his Lebanese uncle who played the oud and taught him the tarabaki, a goblet-shaped drum. His 1961 instrumental "Let's Go Trippin'," recorded with his band The Del-Tones, sparked the surf rock genre that spawned the Beach Boys. From The Guardian: Born Richard Anthony Monsour in May 1937, Dale developed his distinctive sound by adding to instrumental rock influences from his Mi...

The Spotify Apple Issue

Many people who follow tech know that Spotify has filed a complaint with the European Commission regarding the challenges that Spotify has doing business in the iOS app store. I am very sympathetic to Spotify’s complaint. In my post last week on The Warren Breakup Plan, I wrote: The mobile app stores, in particular, have always seemed to me to be a constraint on innovation vs a contributor to it. Spotify has a huge user base and brings in billions of dollars of revenues every year but i...

6 Self Care Ideas for Men to Embrace

When you think of self-care, you probably imagine a woman listening to music in a bubble bath, it hardly sounds like a manly activity. What self-care is actually about is giving you the opportunity to relax both physically and mentally. When you’re constantly surrounded by the stress of work, you probably can’t function properly. Coming home doesn’t help much, considering you’ll be surrounded by your screaming kids that crave attention. Finding some time for your hobbies and relaxation seems l...

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: Suhr Classic Antique fret buzzing issues

Author: CaptNasty Posted: Sun Mar 17, 2019 6:45 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 3 Action (string height) is not set by the truss rod. String height adjustments should be made at the bridge. The truss rod is used to adjust relief (the bow) in the neck, which can have effect on string height; but the truss rod is not meant to be the primary mechanism for action adjustment. Did you take measurements that indicated relief or action needed to be adjusted? You should get to the bottom of why the guit...

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: Dull sounding low E, worn out brass saddle on my T?

Author: CaptNasty Posted: Sun Mar 17, 2019 6:17 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 1 String height is set at very tight tolerances, an imperceptible reduction in action could be the difference between a bright, lively string and a buzzy, dead string. If your saddles developed deep grooves and then you started to notice this deadening, it is prudent to evaluate if the saddle wear plays a role. The saddle wear could be directly interfering with string vibration, or the action may have been lowered eno...

Four great SoundCloud songs you've probably never heard

I use Apple Music for the majority of my music listening. It works well and lets me add most of my favorite songs, but there’s a lot missing from it. From what I’ve heard, it takes a little bit of work to get your songs up on iTunes/Apple Music. Unless an artist is well known and doing well in their music career, oftentimes, it’s simply not worth it to publish to Apple Music. SoundCloud, on the other hand, provides extreme simplicity when it comes to publishing music, and makes it easy for liste...

He had countless hit records. You never heard of him.

Hal Blaine, the behind-the-scenes heartbeat of over 40 #1 hits, has died at 90. Many records by 1960s and 1970s artists were secretly recorded by session musicians and singers.

Though you may not know his name, he was arguably the most important drummer in the history of recorded music. And the fact that so few were aware of his existence is no accident. If you'...
