Friday Vids and stuff: Brent Cash, The Kickstand Band, Public Access TV, Genuine Fakes

Brent Cash returns with a new album called “The New High” and its a rich melodic piece of pop. Album review coming Monday!


The Kickstand Band “Stay Inside” Music Video is here, one of my favorite summer tunes, just in time for winter.


Public Access TV‘s “Evil Disco” shows one of the younger power pop bands that debuted last year.


The Genuine Fakes really love Guns N’ Roses, Can’t you tell?

ELP Christmas tribute

With the passing of Keith Emerson (71)  last March and Greg Lake (69) last week, it punctuates the end of legendary prog band Emerson Lake and Palmer. Emerson was one of the greatest keyboardists of his generation, and Carl Palmer wrote in a recent statement; “Greg’s soaring voice and skill as a musician will be remembered by all who knew his music and recordings he made with ELP and King Crimson. I have fond memories of those great years we had in the 1970s and many memorable shows we performed together. Having lost Keith this year as well has made this particularly hard for all of us. As Greg sang at the end of Pictures at an Exhibition, ‘death is life.’ His music can now live forever in the hearts of all who loved him.”

Below is the timeless holiday song “I Believe in Father Christmas” by Greg Lake

Black Friday Videos: OK GO, Vegas With Randolph and The Pozers

Check out some new videos I came across from some of my favorite bands:

It’s always an internet event when OK GO releases a innovative video. Even though its harder than ever to break through the clutter, one is pretty cool.

Earlier this year, videographer and musician Todd Stanton put together a video of Vegas With Randolph doing our version of his song “New Leaf.”

For all you retro enthusiasts “All She Wrote” is the third video from The Pozers’ CD, The Sun’s Going Down. Another good song from this album is “The Fascination.”

FREE Stuff: Talk Show Host, Richard Cummins, and The Anderson Council video

Talk Show Host – Like the pop punk of Green Day? Then enjoy this fast paced band from Toronto. Band is described as “Two recovering punks and an indie rocker walk into a bar.” FREE download (no drink minimum).

Richard Cummins – Yet another Beatles cover album, with an emphasis on McCartney’s work and some of his solo stuff. very well done and a FREE download. Hey Beatle tribute bands, he may be available!

And since Macca “taught him to play,” he wrote an original song about that too.
