Album of The  Week

Neil Young - After the Gold Rush (1970)

Neil Young drove a car up to the studio that was a complete piece of trash billowing smoke from the windows as well as the exhaust. He had the cops pull their weapons on him in front of the studio and despite having no license they just let him go and he went on to record the album. He originally intended to only record the song featuring the piano in studio as he had already recorded the rest at his house but it sounded so good he re-recorded it all. After the gold rush was his 3rd album after the success of the Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young successful album Deja Vu.

There was a band playing in my head
And I felt like getting high
I was thinking about what a friend had said
I was hoping it was a lie
— After the Goldrush

Tall white mansions and little shacks
Southern man, when will you pay them back?

Think 182

In what is possibly the whitest thing ever, Weezer is releasing a vinyl copy of their cover of Toto's "Africa" after a Twitter campaign requesting the song. Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 revealed his pitch to catch Saddam Hussein after someone on Twitter asked him the least plausible story about him that is true.

Questionable Caves

Musician Nick Cave is having a statue built of him in bronze of him riding a horse while in a loin cloth. An interesting choice for sure and he referred to the statue as “a rather beautiful piece of homo erotic art.” That's when you know you have made it, when your home town builds a ridiculous statue of you that makes no sense.

Shapeshifter Dream

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan doubled down this week on claims made on Howard Stern's show that he had sexual encounters with a shapeshifter. He only hedged on his claim slightly "Maybe I had a hallucination, but I saw what I saw". I think I know where I would put my money.

Nirmama

Dave Grohl, of The Foo Fighters and Nirvana, is working on a new project with his mom. She did an interview series where she interviews the mom's of other famous musicians. Originally published as a book it will now be produced as a television series by the two of them. The goal of any musician is to reach the top so that you can get your mom famous, so this isn't very surprising.

Mental Health Awareness Month

British singer James Blake took to Twitter to talk about the response he often gets to his songs that have lyrics that are emotionally vulnerable. He says that he often receives a response of "sad boy" whenever he posts a song in which he expresses what would be seen as not masculine emotions. 

“We are already in an epidemic of male depression and suicide. We don’t need any further proof that we have hurt men with our questioning of their need to be vulnerable and open. It is only a good thing to talk about what is on your mind."

— The Beach Boys

In 1968 Brian Wilson started having a diminished role in the band, formerly the principal songwriter, as he started to have mental health challenges. He was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type. This lead him to be inactive and turn toward drugs. However, through various medications and therapies he was able to begin writing and recording again and says he is doing better than ever now.

Mental Health Awareness Month

Last week a vigil was held, marking the one year anniversary of death by suicide of Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Audioslave. His close friend, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, sang Hallelujah at his funeral. On Cornell’s next birthday, Bennington took his own life as well. Mental health is a daily struggle for more people than you would think, a small act of kindness you did yesterday may have meant more to someone than you could ever know.

Mental Health Awareness Month

I am continuing to use this month to promote Mental Health Awareness month. Normally this section is reserved for jokes about music news and fun facts. Unfortunately this week music news and mental health awareness month overlapped. Scott Hutchison the lead singer of Scottish band Frightened Rabbit committed suicide last week at the age of 36. The band was called Frightened Rabbit because that is what his mom used to his mom used to call him as a child because he was so shy. He started the band with his brother, and it grew over the next dozen years. His music has always been open and honest about his struggles and he has even talked about his struggles during interviews. One example of this is the their song Floating on the Forth, whose closing line is "I think I'll save suicide for another year". When asked about the song he said “It’s a real thought. It’s a thought that I’ve taken to a place that I’m far less comfortable with … I’ve gone 90% of the way through that song in real life". Ten years later and unfortunately he was not able to survive his struggle for another year.

Mental Health Awareness Month

Once again I am doing my best to promote and support mental health awareness month. Take a moment to listen to these songs and empathize with the people who wrote them in that moment. 


Lithium

I’m so lonely, that’s okay, I shaved my head
And I’m not sad
And just maybe I’m to blame for all I’ve heard
But I’m not sure
— Nirvana

Kurt Cobain's tragic suicide is well known, so the part I am going to focus on here is the less well known aspects of his mental health battle. His family had a history of mental illness, with multiple family members committing suicide in violent ways. Mental Health issues commonly run in families and genetics is one of the primary risk factors. Kurt was diagnosed with ADD at a young age and later diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder (also known as manic-depression). This is similar to serious clinical depression with the addition of mood swings, which can result in everything from rage to euphoria.  During his manic states Kurt would be incredibly productive, with his depressive states caused him to be characterized as lazy. Bipolar people are much more likely to be addicted to drugs and alcohol as was the case with Kurt as well.  In his suicide note he was suffering with delusional guilt and expressed that he felt like his wife and child would be better off without him in their lives. I recently saw a t-shirt for sale online that had his suicide note on the front of it. It made me extremely upset, that someone would ever think that was an appropriate way to support a band or be edgy. It is disgusting to trivialize the anguish that someone must be feeling to take their own lives. Kurt often said and frequently wrote in his journals "I hate myself and want to die", if you have never had pervasive negative thoughts like that you should count yourself lucky and try to better understand and empathize with people who do. Some people's challenges aren't clearly visible from the outside, things like success with their career, or having a family can't completely erase these thoughts.

Mental Health Awareness Month

This month all of the songs and writing in my posts will be in an effort to bring attention and perspective to Mental Health Awareness month. Of all the illnesses that affect the people you see everyday mental issues are the most misunderstood. The other thing that makes this topic so important is that each person is able to help the people around them to a greater degree than they realize. The impact you can make on someone with cancer is limited but your effort and kindness for someone suffering with mental health issues can literally be the difference between life and death. Just last week Avicii lost his battle with mental health and commited sucide. I've selected songs that are meant to invoke empathy, inspire, and articulate the struggles of mental health issues and addiction.


Twilight

You don’t deserve to be lonely
But those drugs you got won’t make you feel better
Pretty soon you’ll find it’s the only
Little part of your life you’re keeping together
— Elltiot Smith

Elliott Smith had mental health and addiction issues, it is reported that he was smoking up to $1500 dollars of heroin and crack each day. He also was paranoid and believed he was being followed by a white van. However he was starting to turn his life around and gave up all drugs, alcohol, and caffeine. He also was finishing the details on his latest album that was set to release soon. 

He got in an argument with his girlfriend, she claims she locked herself in the bathroom then heard a scream and when she opened the door he had a knife in his chest. It was reported as a suicide based on her testimony and his mental health history. However the autopsy confirmed there were no drugs in his system and was much more consistent with homicide than with murder, including possible defense wounds on his hands and multiple stab wounds in his chest. His girlfriend was never charged and she later sued his family for 15% of his estate claiming that she was entitled to it since they lived together. I think it is very likely that Elliott Smith's murderer got away with the crime based on an improper investigation by the police, allowing his mental health and addiction issues to bias their investigation. 


the middle

Don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just do your best
Do everything you can
Don’t you worry what their bitter hearts are going to say
— Jimmy Eat World

This song was inspired by an email from a fan that the lead singer received from a high school student who felt like she wasn't punk enough for the punk crowd or cool enough for the popular crowd and felt like she was stuck in "the middle" in between all the cliques at school.

Aladdin Stain

Unfortunately the David Bowie statue that I wrote about a few weeks ago has been vandalized with "Feed the homeless first" and "RIP DB" spray-painted on it.  A Bowie fan has offered 5k to a homeless charity if the perpetrator turns themselves in, which may be a good idea as the person was captured on camera. Apparently this person couldn't find the hundreds of other nearby extravagances to deface and had to ruin a statue, and also cost more money from the government to fix it.

Smashed Pumpkin

Billy Corgan the frontman of Smashing Pumpkins has said recently that "80% for the things that I get held up and mocked for, I'm doing intentionally". I can relate to that, if you are making fun of me the joke is on you not me. Like the time I locked my keys in my car while it was running and locked myself out of the house during a blizzard. My dad made fun of me but the joke was on him, I was doing it intentionally on a level of humor and brilliance he just didn't understand.

When I should have just been grateful for what he gave

Music and comedy group Flight of the Concords, best known for their hilarious HBO show a few years ago had re-united to tour the UK. The tour has been delayed "Unfortunately I’ve broken two bones in my hand today in a very rock’n’roll injury—falling down some stairs" said Bret in an Instagram post.

A David Bowie statue has been unveiled in an English city, hopefully every other city worldwide can catch up and finish their tributes soon.

Killer Music

Normally the rap side is where I detail artists committing crimes, but in France a CONVICTED murderer who killed his girlfriend ten years ago is headlining a festival and the festival has stood by it's decision. It just goes to show, before commiting a crime you should definitely be sure to be a rich white guy, it is going to help considerably.

I decided to include a track from the new rearranged version of Sorority Noise's Grahammy Winning album that was just released along with the news that the band will be going on hiatus after this summer's tour.
