Daily Earwig: I Can’t Take It – Cheap Trick


Cheap Trick, I Can’t Take It. Live from 1984. For LP.

I love it when Robin Zander makes all the pretty high notes in this live version. It’s almost as good as the version that runs through my head when I’m running. Or drunk. Either way 24 years later, it still sounds great.

The band released their most recent record, The Latest, last month sans label support. Cheap Trick plays the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinati on July 15th. More Cheap Trick tour dates here.

Deep Soul by The Revelations featuring Tre’ Williams, 2008.

This 2008 record from The Revelations, featuring vocalist Tre’ Williams slipped by me. And while I don’t have a reasonable explanation for this gross oversight, I’m trying to make up for it now by posting the brilliant track from Deep Soul, He’s a Hustler. If you dig Hustler, then click here to download four more tracks from Deep Soul via the bands Myspace, for free.

Speaking of free, The Revelations will perform a free gig in Jersey on July 22nd as a part of the Summer Concerts on the Hudson series.

Cherrybomb Daily Earwig: Princess MC – Pump Up The Funk…


Princess MC, Pump Up The Funk.

Originally signed to Vision Records, part of Fat Albert Productions (Harold Albert pioneered the “Fat Albert” drum and the duo recorded The Stones and Clapton), Princess MC put out this hotter than hawt 12″, Pump Up The Funk in 1989. You can find Princess MC’s Pump on Fly Girls! – B Boys Beware: Revenge of the Super Female Rappers, a double disc/LP, celebrates the history of the female MC. A girl who was never really gone, unless it came to her powers of mike control.

Cherrybomb Daily Earwig: The Makers – Too Many F*ckers on The Street…

themakers
The Makers, Rock Star Gods…

Today I ran a 5K in Seattle with lots of other fuckers. In the street. In the snow (the size of cotton balls), ice (very fucking cold) and (also very cold and falling sideways) rain. At any rate, when I was approaching the finish line it was a song from The Makers (out of Spokane, Washington, 509 represent!) that helped me plow through. Anyway, I do have one rant observation that is not weather related but is related to The Makers awesome song, Too Many Fuckers on the Street. If you are going to run in an organized event, is it too much to ask that you not text or talk on your cell phone while you pretend to run? Your cell phone fuckery makes it difficult for me to pass your lazy ass. All because you are busy texting one of your jackass friends: “Sup OMG BION its snowing, LOL WRUD?”. In the future, please get out of my god-damned way. Thanks.

Too Many Fuckers is on The Makers last record with Sub Pop, 2006′s, Rock Star God.

Cherrybomb Daily Earwig: Blur – Crazy Beats…


Blur, Crazy Beats, 2003.

Cherrybomb Daily Earwig: Buffalo Tom – Mountains of Your Head…

buffalotom
Buffalo Tom, Let Me Come Over, 1992.

Buffalo Tom coined one of my favorite phrases with the title of their 1992 record (one of my top 10 records of all time), Let Me Come Over. Every few years, this record, especially the deep-cut Mountains, define a new space in my sad liquor addled life time for me. Just like it did in 1992. If you don’t own it, I won’t chastise this time as I usually do. Instead, I will gently encourage you to pick up this record as soon as you can. You’re music collection (and your favorite, musically inclined Cherry) thank you.

The band is currently recording songs for a new record and will slowly release some vintage recordings online via The Buffalo Tom website. Tune in, yo…
