Grant’s Rock Warehaus – THE DARKNESS – With Mike Ladano and Tim Durling

What a fun night!  Grant Arthur and I went through our favourite Darkness tracks, album by album and single by single.  Then Tim Durling showed up and the rocking really began.  An absolutely fun night, educational, and a total love affair for Dan, Justin, Frankie, Rufus, Richie, Eddie and Emily.  We also delved into Hot Leg, the Stone Gods, and British Whale.  Get rocked!

 

 

Dancing on a Friday Night? Grant’s Rock Warehaus – THE DARKNESS – Tonight at 7:00 PM EST

Spend an hour with Grant and I LIVE tonight, as we discuss our favourite DARKNESS tracks!

 

Hey you, do you remember me?
I used to sit next to you at school
And we indulged in all the extracurricular activities
We weren’t particularly cool

Oh, Monday, cycling
Tuesday, gymnastics
Dancing on a Friday night
I got Bridge Club on Wednesday
Archery on Thursday
Dancing on a Friday night

Hey you, could you ever fall for me
Oh, the way I fell for you?
And do you dwell upon the thoughts that I occupy
Or do you give yourself things to do?

Oh, Monday, rowing
Tuesday, badminton
Dancing on a Friday night
I got ping pong on Wednesday
Needlework on Thursday
Dancing on a Friday night
With you, you, rowr
Ow!

Monday, Tuesday
Wednesday, Thursday
Dancing on a Friday night
Let the music smother me
Whole weekend recovery
Dancing on a Friday night

Oh, see the lady I adore
Dancing on the dancing floor
Dancing on a Friday night
God, the way she moves, moves me
To write bad poetry
Dancing on a Friday night, ooh

Grab A Stack of Rock – Lego Intro version 3

More Lego scenes! More stacks of rock! More to come!

Marco D’Auria and Tim Durling are Creatures of the Night! Box set dissected, bootleg DVDs examined, and Harrison questioned!

Marco, Tim and I had a blast taking a deep dive into Kiss’ Creatures of the Night album, box set, and tour!  Marco presented a collection of four Kiss bootlegs from the Creatures era.  Tim brought the vinyl and cassettes.  He even had a related 8-track tape.  I dove deep into the Kiss box set:  the book, the goodies, the music, the stories and the packaging!  (For those asking me for a box set review, this is pretty much it!)  Additionally, Uncle Meat stopped by with his memories of seeing the Creatures tour at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto.  Finally, “Ask Harrison” returned with two of the best questions for my Aussie co-host yet.  Harrison doesn’t have much in the way of Kiss but did present some interesting stuff in terms of Slade, Deep Purple, Def Leppard, and more.

“Ask Harrison” questions this time were asked by Lana (via Tee Bone) and our newest castmember, an actual Instagram influencer with 200,000 followers who discovered our Led Zeppelin list episode earlier this year, became a fan, and wanted to be a part of our little show herself! Please give her a big welcome.

Next week I’ll be doing a taping with Grant Arthur from Grant’s Rock Warehaus, but we’ll be back again soon.  Thanks for watching!

“Fuck Sammy [Hagar]!” says Dave Lizmi on Grab A Stack of Rock with Mike, Harrison and Robert Daniels! This is our clickbait headline!

Robert “Visions In Sound” Daniels not only grabbed a stack of rock, but also a rack of socks!  Rob rocked us all tonight, with some cool soundtracks that are rare and desirable to collectors!  Harrison “Mad Metal Man” Kopp also stepped up to the plate with some 3 CD sets and assorted items.  Because Rob was on, I decided to go with a Star Wars theme with CDs, VHS, and stickers.  But we got much than we bargained for.  Other features:

  • A controversial “Ask Harrison” featuring Tee Bone Erickson
  • A “Fuck Sammy Hagar” from Dave Lizmi of the Four Horsemen
  • Some bizarre video tape formats from Rob’s TV days

Next week, Uncle Meat and Marco the Contrarian will be grabbing stacks of rock with us!  Don’t miss it!

Grabbing Stacks of Japanese Imports with Mike, Harrison and John T Snow!

Super special guest John Snow showed up tonight with a stack of Japanese imports!  Jeff Scott Soto, Danger Danger, Firehouse and more!  Harrison also brought some Japanese action along with some assorted musical treats.  I showed off some big Thin Lizzy and Kiss imports from Japan, and random stacks of whatever happened to be lying nearby.  And when I say random, I do mean random!

We also took viewer questions for Harrison about his home country of Australia.  If popular, this will become a regular feature of the show.

Stacks of 8-Tracks, CDs, Lizzy & ZZ with Mike and the Mad Metal Man & special guests Tim Durling and Aaron KMA

Tim Durling‘s Holy Grail this week was a serious rarity:  Europe’s The Final Countdown (1986) on 8-track!  It was worth the wait, seeing that unusual tape on that format.

We had a surprise guest:  Aaron from the KMA, who showed some discs and books!  And of course Harrison the Mad Metal Man had some interesting items on display.  As for me, I unboxed the Thin Lizzy Rock Legends box set and an unassembled ZZ Top Eliminator model kit.

Fun Friday night.  Thanks for watching!
