Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Infestissumam / Per Aspera Ad Inferi” by Ghost B.C.


It’s not Spinal Tap during their “Stonehenge” phase, however Ghost B.C.’s satanic metal church music offers a theatrical twist (a la Tap’s “Henge”) unseen in rock music for many years. The stage fills with thick plumes of white smoke while the sound of Latin liturgical chanting fills the air. Out of the haze emerge five […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Missing Pieces” by Jack White – Lollapalooza Recap – Day 3


The question on many people’s lips this day was which band would he bring with him…the girls, or the guys? The “he” in question was headliner Jack White who has been touring with two separate bands, one consisting solely of women and one of men. And the answer to the question was plainly…YES! Right out […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Take Me Back” by Aloe Blacc – Lollapalooza Recap Day 2

Before the rain came, the day showed some promise including a terrific set by Aloe Blacc […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Obvious” by Jane’s Addiction


I went to great lengths in yesterday’s Song Of The Day explaining why I think Perry Farrell’s Porno For Pyros outfit was far superior to Jane’s Addiction. Well, with all of that said, I still think Jane’s Addiction was a great vehicle for Farrell’s singular talents, and as a band they made a few essential […]

Song Of The Day – “Tahitian Moon” by Porno For Pyros


Prince…Jack White… Jerry Garcia…Bruce Springsteen…David Byrne…Curt Cobain…Perry Farrell…all world-class performers with charisma to burn. The type of performer you can’t take your eyes off of when on stage. Some like Jerry Garcia didn’t have to do much but just show up and play to be the focal point of their band…but the others worked their […]
