Heard this tune in a bar last week and loved it. It had a real hooky vibe to it, like a guitar/synth thing like Phoenix. I finally got around to looking it up and, much to my surprise, it was released in 1977. Never heard of them before.

Television is a fantastic NY punk-era band. They came out of the same scene as The Ramones and the Talking Heads (CBGB). Marquee Moon is their best album, but their second album, Adventure, is great too. Can't recommend them enough. In fact, I'm going to listen to them now that you put them in my head.

Great to hear, gonna pick up the debut album soon if not now. I still can't get over how modern the guitar riff on the title track sounds.

Yeah, for a lesser-known band, they have a really broad influence. They definitely didn't sound like anyone else from that era.

Highly recommend The Defiant Ones on hbo for anyone who enjoys documentaries on music history. Nothing much new about the west coast rap part of it, but the Jimmy Iovine half was a hell of a story

If you own an iPhone, open Siri and speak slowly saying, "I see a little silhouetto of a man." You're welcome.

We all knew it was coming. Alzheimer's took him away quite a while ago. But damn, what a trooper for touring that last time during the first stages of the disease! The documentary that captures it, called Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me, is a must-watch.

It's such a terrible disease. I have a grandfather with it. It sounds harsh but I've gotten to the point where I just really don't want to be around him. He hasn't had a clue who I am for the last few years. He barely recognizes my dad. It's rough because I have so many great memories of spending time with him and he has none

So anybody heard about the singer Puddles Pity Party?



"Big" Mike Geier is an Atlanta, Georgia based singer, entertainer and leader of the band Kingsized.[1][2]

Puddles Pity Party is known for appearing in several viral videos on YouTube since 2013, most notably with Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox.[3] Most of the songs he performs are covers of recent hits. Puddles Pity Party is noted for his distinctive whiteface clown costume, baritone singing voice, depressed persona, not speaking on stage or in interviews, and his unusual height of 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m).[4][5]

Puddles Pity Party performed in Aqua Teen Hunger Force's 2010 tour.[6] In 2011 he regularly appeared in vaudevillian cabaret at Teatro ZinZanni. In 2013, he opened for Eels during their U.S. and European tour. In October 2013, he recorded a cover of Lorde's "Royals" with Postmodern Jukebox on YouTube. As of July 2017 the video has received over 20 million hits.[7] Puddles has collaborated with Bradlee on YouTube several times since. Since 2014 he has toured the world, with concerts in the United States, United Kingdom, Belgium and Australia.[8]

His September 27, 2014 live performance of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", at the Regency Lodge Ballroom in San Francisco, was filmed by director Gary Yost and was later described by HuffPost as "A Strange Kind Of Beautiful".[9] By July 2017 the video on YouTube had received over 3 million views.[10]

Puddles performed on season 12 of America's Got Talent, making it past the audition with 4 "yes" votes. He also made it past the Judge Cuts and is scheduled perform on the live shows.

New War on Drugs, Brand New, and Manchester Orchestra are all fantastic. Can't wait for The National record in 2 weeks.
