Nostalgia: 10,000 Days Andy King Review

Nostalgia: 10,000 Days Andy King Review

With a new Tool album on the way, I thought it would be fun to review some of the posts that came out around the time of their last album 10,000 Days release. One review that sticks in mind is the infamous review from Andy King, who I believe was a radio DJ who attended a listening party. From memory he didn’t realise there was a non-disclosure agreement, and published… Read More »Nostalgia: 10,000 Days Andy King Review

Review: A Perfect Circle – Eat The Elephant

“This is not going to go the way you think” a prominent quote from the most recent Star Wars movie The Last Jedi – and I expect the latest A Perfect Circle album will be greeted with similar levels of division within the fanbase.  Seemingly gone is the goth-tinged hard rock of the first two albums, Eat The Elephant greets us with a range of largely more mellow, yet more… Read More »Review: A Perfect Circle – Eat The Elephant

Review: Puscifer at Thebarton Theatre, January 23rd 2017

Puscifer‘s latest Money $hot tour seemed to be getting great reviews on it’s various US and European legs, and Maynard James Keenan and co decided to share the love with Australian audiences with a tour taking in most capitals in Australia, as well as the MOFO Festival at Hobart’s MONA.  I was lucky enough to get along to the show at Thebarton Theatre here in Adelaide, and can report I had… Read More »Review: Puscifer at Thebarton Theatre, January 23rd 2017

Review: A Perfect Union of Contrary Things

Last week my copy of Maynard James Keenan’s biography – A Perfect Union of Contrary Things arrived from the US, and over the last few days I’ve read through it, and composed a few thoughts in a review of sorts.  If you haven’t read the book, below contains a few minor spoilers of sorts, but nothing that should ruin your enjoyment of it. The first half of the book covers… Read More »Review: A Perfect Union of Contrary Things

Maynard Stuff

A few Maynard related items this afternoon.  Firstly, as I’m sure most of you have read on Toolband a selection of his wines won 9 medals at a recent Arizona Republic Wine Competition.  Head over to the Caduceus site or Toolband for more details. Congratulations to Maynard on his endeavours and I hope to one day sample his fermented grapes. I read somewhere (I can’t for the life of me… Read More »Maynard Stuff

Soundwave 2010

I’ve been looking forward to Soundwave 2010 for quite a while now.  Not only were one of my favorite bands Faith No More reuniting, but it also featured several other favorites of mine, including Tool touring buddies Meshuggah and Isis.  Forecast for the day was originally in the high 30s, but thankfully this didn’t turn out to be the case – it was a beautiful Adelaide day in the end!… Read More »Soundwave 2010

Review: Pearl Jam @ Adelaide Oval 17-Nov-09

Last night I had the opportunity to check out Pearl Jam for the first time, thanks for a mate of mine who managed to get me ticket for $50.  My short review is that it was $50 very well spent, and was certainly worth a full price charge.  My lengthier review is as follows: The evening started with us getting to the venue at about 6:30pm.  By that time the… Read More »Review: Pearl Jam @ Adelaide Oval 17-Nov-09

San Diego Puscifer Review

A concert review of the recent Puscifer show in San Diego has appeared on Spin:  What followed felt like an X-rated episode of Hee-Haw, starring two more characters: Keenan as bumpkin crooner Billy Dee (a polyester-clad cross between Charlie Rich and Carl Perkins) and comedian Laura Milligan as his child bride/sidekick Hildy (think sexed-up Dolly Parton). And, for added ambiance, all of this played out on a detailed set of… Read More »San Diego Puscifer Review
