 DVD Review: The Process Live @ The Vassar Theater

The Process: Live @ The Vassar TheatreOne of the best things about The Process Live: The Vassar Theatre, I think, is the fact that I didn't have to drive all the way to Vassar, MI to see it. That's right. Thanks to the wisdom of The Process and the fine production work of Big Bang Films the entire show was captured and released on DVD for you -  and lazy local music dorks like me who rarely leave the cave anymore.  But why spend the gas money when I can watch it from my couch?

 Mitch's Mind: How Artwork Changes Music

Chain Reaction - Electric PlaygroundRecently, the Detroit band Chain Reaction reminded me of the importance of album art with their latest release, Electric Playground. The cover art (at left) was designed by New York artist Richard Klemann. It's just the kind of album cover I would have loved as a kid - so many details to peruse.

That was my favorite pastime growing up in the 70's; whiling away the hours listening to music, locked in my room with a pair of headphones while I poured over every detail of the cover art.  I consumed everything on the inner sleeve and all the credits as well. It was an essential part of the listening experience for me.

 Badynee Invited To Make Elevator Pitch On MSNBC

Badynee To Appear On Elevator PitchAccording to a recent dispatch from Bogdon Box Bass creator Chris Badynee, he's been invited to appear on MSNBC's popular business feature "Elevator Pitch", a segment where fledgling entreprenuers pitch their ideas to CEO's in a mock elevator on national television to acquire much-need capital.  Badynee, a Westland native, will be begging the bankers for a cool quarter-million to take his creation to the next level and, hopefully, put one in every music-lover's stocking this Christmas (ed: probably couldn't have picked a better economic climate to promote cardboard instruments!).  Alternative Press Magazine's will reportedly be touting the box bass as this season's must-have, so that should help his cause. Other recent high-profile supporters among the DIY music crowd are Bass Player Magazine and the 2008 Summer NAMM where his creation was included among a select few as Best In Show.  - mitch

 We've Added A New Video

New Video UpI dropped by Kozy Koffee in Highland Michigan last Thursday and shot some video of the performances then made a short montage out of it so you would get a feel for their Open Mic Night.  The show started around 7pm with some impromptu drum, guitar & keyboard music then moved on to several solo & duo performances.  There was a decent-sized younger crowd at this place who were occassionally inspired to get up and get freaky.  Click the video to the left to check it out. 

Don't forget you can add your YouTube, Google, and other online videos to our video section but you must be logged in.  Check our FAQ if you need some help.

 MB Welcomes Bank Heist

Bank HeistSince Henry Paulson, Chris Cox, George Bush, Ben Bernanke & The U.S. Congress have arranged to deliver the contents of the U.S. Treasury to the banking industry, with no danger of ever providing the people with what they really need (i.e. education, jobs, housing, health care & infrastructure), I think it perfectly appropriate to introduce our next band link submission in the Original Artists/ Modern Rock category. Bank Heist consists of the duo Matt Besuden (Vocals, Guitar) and Ted Cikowski (Vocals, Guitar, Synths) who count among their influences such electronic music progenitors as Kraftwerk, Joy Division, New Order, Juan Atkins and....Del Shannon?...(ok, apparently Shannon's keyboardist invented the Musitron - an early synthesizer). According to Bank Heist's myspace page, they've been creating pop music since the early nineties and have released one CD.  They're currently in the process of creating an offical webpage (www.bankheist.org) but until that's up and running, you can listen to a track called "Green Light" on their myspace page. - Mitch
