Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Picture This” by Blondie

45-adapter-logo2

There was nothing new about punk and new wave. It came about as a reaction to the bloated excesses of progressive rock groups like Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Genesis and Yes and their seemingly obligatory side-long multi-part suites of music.  (Not that there was anything wrong with that…) Groups like Ramones and Blondie brought back […]

Music By The Letter On The 3D RadioActivity

As technology has diversified, posted letters have become less important as a routine form of communication; they however still remain but in a modified forms like email.  The development of the telegraph around 1792 shortened the time taken to send a letter by transferring the letter as an electrical signal between distant points, which is […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “I Got You” by Split Enz

Like Peter Gabriel-era Genesis, Split Enz started out as a visually stunning progressive rock band that dressed up in wild costumes and performed elaborate stage shows, with the original lineup of Phil Judd, Tim Finn, Mike Chunn, Robert Gillies and Noel Crombie. They formed in 1971, but it wasn’t until 1980 that the band found […]

45-adapter-logo2

As was the case with Lennon and McCartney before them; the whole was way more than the sum of the parts with Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford. Together, the songwriting team behind the group Squeeze composed some of the greatest pop songs of the late ‘70s and 1980s: “Tempted,” “Pulling Mussels From A Shell,” “In […]

Q: Where do the worlds of The Kingston Trio, Devo and Neil Young all collide? A: Why, on “Human Highway,” of course! “Human Highway” was a mostly dreadful film released by Bernard Shakey (aka Neil Young) in 1982. The film starred Neil Young, Dean Stockwell, Dennis Hopper, Russ Tamblyn and Devo and was filmed between […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)” by Haircut 100

45-adapter-logo2

Nothing like a wacky band name! Haircut 100 were rivaled only by A Flock Of Seagulls in the New Wave band name wars of the early 1980s, but you could always tell the bands apart by their hair styles (…and their trousers…they were tight…). Haircut 100 were formed in 1980 by lead singer Nick Heywood […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Soul Kiss” by Joe Jackson

45-adapter-logo2

For an artist as ornery as Joe Jackson was on stage berating his audiences regularly; he did come out with some of the sweetest and most articulate music of his time. While critics were rightly comparing Elvis Costello to Irving Berlin and Cole Porter, they kind of missed out on the real carrier of their […]
