KXM - Scatterbrain


“Scatterbrain” is the all new sophomore release from the super-group KXM comprised of drummer Ray Luzier (KoRn), guitarist George Lynch (LYNCH MOB) and KING'S X front man dUg Pinnick and is the follow up album to their highly successful 2014 self-titled debut release which landed at #31 on the Billboard Top 200.


“Scatterbrain” features 13 brand new tracks and was recorded at the Steakhouse Studio in North Hollywood California where the band once again tapped Chris “The Wizard” Collier (FLOTSAM & JETSAM/PRONG/LAST IN LINE) to engineer the new effort.

Speaking about the recording process for KXM’s new record, vocalist dUg Pinnick comments, “We wrote all the songs right on the spot and immediately recorded them, everyone doing his part and no one telling the other one what or how to play, just like the previous album!”. Drummer Ray Luzier adds “We wanted to use the same formula as the 1st KXM record…book studio time, come in fresh every day with a new idea, run with it and not over think anything” .

Basically it was “Record-topia”, we showed up in the studio, camped out with a bunch of gear and let the tape roll!” states guitarist George Lynch. “Just like the first album, no pre-production, no rehearsal, no pre-written songs, every song was written as a product of an in-studio jam session!”

On the topic of the musical direction and overall vibe of the new album Ray recently told Modern Drummer Magazine; “It's a darker record than the first one, it's really heavy and it’s very soulful with dUg's voice leading the way". Ray further describes the direction of the new album, “There is some straight ahead rock, bits of prog, ska and tons of dynamics, there is a lot involved but it still sounds like KXM!” KXM “Scatterbrain” was released in March 17, 2017.

Today's tune "Scatterbrain" is the title tune from the latest album, a tune with it's infectious riff and breaks will probably hook you on!

Elvis Presley - If I Can Dream


Today is a sad day, at least for me, "Stones", I got a call a few hours ago from my cousin, a heartbreaking news about my sister, she had passed away, heavy, oh devastating. Is there anything worse than losing something so close? My Sister, who was so close to me throughout my childhood, a person who showed me right from wrong, always welcomed me as part of her own family, treated me as her own child. It was a quite big span of age between us, Im a so called trailing child. So my sisters children was in my own age, my best friend is almost the same age as me, so you get the point that my sister was like my extra mother back then. Shit, this became a bit hard to write, when you pause up and start to look back in the past, all the memories, all the good things that happens when I was a kid, all the love and all the fun, specially the time at Santasaari, a place where I basically grew up. "Burken" or "Can" in English was a very funny game back then.

The "Can" was a game that we did often. One is Ha'n and begins to count to eg 100 while all other running and hiding. Then, when Ha'n has finished counting, he screams loudly "Now I'm coming" and then it's up to Ha'n to find anyone hiding, for example, if he sees "Jenny" sitting behind a red house, he kick the "Can" (which may be a tree or a stone, etc.), saying, "The Can is kicked for Jenny behind the red house." If Jenny was behind the red house, she will arrive when the game is over for her. The other participants will try to sneak out to the "Can" and say "The Can is kicked for me" You can make the rules for who will be Ha'n next time either the one who first caught it or the one who kicks the last one.

 


My Sister has been a sick for some time now, she got Alzheimers, so it was expected, so I did of course prepared myself a little inside that this day will come sooner or later, but it doesn't matter how much you pre-per, it will hit you hard anyway. My Sister was a incredibly love and careful person, thinking the best for her kids and me. She wanted us to have fun in Life, so it was really fun to be in her space. Of course she could be both stubborn and strict, but in a good way if you look back.

My sister loved Elvis Presley, same as my mom. My Cousin got the news yesterday that my sister got bad, he took a plane this morning to be able to visit his mom, when he arrived, he played some Elvis for my Sister and his Mom so she could sleep tight and leave this earth and so she did.



Now I want you my "Sister, bonus mom" to rest in peace and when times comes and you will return to Earth, you are more than welcome to come over for a visit, either as a flying soul or with a new body, around here you will get fine roasted coffee and Elvis played on Vinyl. I dedicate today's song to my Sister, a song with Elvis, because the first Artist I think of when I remembering my Sister is Elvis. So this is the best way to honor her and for me to say goodbye.

So now I feel immediately much better and can probably consider that the first part of the grieving process is over. Soon awaiting a funeral in the north where siblings and close relatives are going to attend, where i can take the last farewell.

Today's tune "If I Can Dream" is a song made famous by Elvis Presley, written by Walter Earl Brown and notable for its direct quotations of Martin Luther King, Jr. The song was published by Elvis Presley's music publishing company Gladys Music, Inc. It was recorded by Presley in June 1968, two months after King's assassination. The recording was first released to the public as the finale of Presley's '68 Comeback Special. Brown was asked to write a song to replace "I'll Be Home for Christmas" as the grand finale on NBC's "Elvis" (June 20–23, 1968). He wrote "If I Can Dream", and when Presley heard it he proclaimed "I'm never going to sing another song I don't believe in. I'm never going to make another picture I don't believe in."

When Colonel Tom Parker heard the song demonstrated by Earl Brown, he said: "This ain't Elvis' kind of song." Elvis was also there, unbeknownst to him, and he said: "I'd like to try it, man." Earl Brown said that when Elvis recorded the song, Brown saw tears rolling down the cheeks of the three back up singers. One of them whispered to him: "Elvis has never sung with so much emotion before. He means every word."

Rikard Wolff - Pojken På Månen


One of the most popular Swedish artist and actor Rikard Wolff, 59, took his last breath this Friday after a long-term lung disease.

Rikard Wolff (8 April 1958 – 17 November 2017) was a Swedish stage and screen actor and singer. His career included both film roles in House of Angels and its two sequels and theatre roles such as in Waiting for Godot at Royal Dramatic Theatre, and A Chorus Line at The Göteborg Opera. He was made a Knight of the Legion of Honour for his work with French music. He had also been awarded a Grammis, and received the Swedish Academy's 2017 prize for theatre, as well as a royal medal for his service as an actor. His best known song was "Pojken på månen" from the album of the same name.

Wolff was openly homosexual. He had one daughter with Stina Gardell, a Swedish producer and journalist, sister of the Swedish novelist, playwright, screenwriter and comedian Jonas Gardell and of the religion scholar Mattias Gardell.

Wolff had pulmonary emphysema since 1988 and died on 17 November 2017, aged 59. R.I.P.


 
It's really sad that he has left this earth, he was a marvellous singer and actor. I think my first contact with him was on the cinema 1992, when he played one of the characters in the movie "Änglagård", a superb acting and made some impressions and to be honest, he is the only one I can remember from it. I have also had the opportunity to meet this incredibly warm, sympathetic and nice man during a number of jobs over the years.

Today's tune "Pojken På Månen" (The Boy on the Moon) is an single and the title tune from his second solo album, released in 1995.



Rikard Wolff performs "Pojken på månen" on the show "Lotta på Liseberg" 2017. Lotta på Liseberg is a live entertainment program broadcast from the big stage at the Liseberg theme park in Gothenburg.
