Collector's Corner: Adam Eisenberg

Posted by johng on Saturday, May 23, 2015 at 10:00 AM (EDT)
Image Today, Collector's Corner returns and we focus on one of our own: Adam Eisenberg! At the 'org, Adam E serves as copy editor, combing over every single letter to make sure everything is up to Blue Book standards. He also edits reviews on Tuesday and Thursday and is a regular podcast panelist. He is also a mega Public Image Limited fan and was hip to Downtown Boys before pretty much everyone else. What I am saying is that he often discovers cool bands early on, and then the rest of us hear what he likes and act like we were down from day one when really the last "new" band we knew about was GBH.

You can see Adam E's segment below.

In this episode...

We discuss at great length and with much tunage, the career of Davey VonBohlen of The Promise Ring, Maritime and Cap'n Jazz. Somehow Scott brings up Reel Big Fish three times.

John G's Guide to Good Gamblin'

Posted by armando on Friday, May 22, 2015 at 6:30 PM (EDT)
ImageWhile preparing to make the trip out to Vegas for Punk Rock Bowling this weekend I asked my good pal and fellow editor John Gentile for some gambling tips. I figured this weekend could be the once in a lifetime chance where I leave a loser and come back a king among punx.

So the two of us were able to sit down and have a chat, via our laptops, where John laid down all the tricks of the trade on how to win the big bucks. So being the fine gentleman that I am I have decided to share this knowledge with you so that you too can also win big this weekend and know what it feels like to be loaded like Fat Mike until you lose all your money in the stock market.

Slayer announce 9/11 release date for 'Repentless'

Posted by mark on Friday, May 22, 2015 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Image Thrash metal pioneers Slayer have formally announced a title and release date for their upcoming album, their eleventh and first since the death of founding member Jeff Hanneman. The record is titled Repentless and is due out September 11, 2015 via Nuclear Blast.

The band released "When The Stillness Comes," a final version of which appears on the new album, for Record Store Day this past April. Comparing it to something Hanneman may have written, guitarist Kerry King said:

"If you know our history, I never did the clean or spooky stuff. That was always Jeff. It was the one thing musically that was just his. I'd do the crazy, punky fast stuff and he'd do the moody stuff. So 'When The Stillness Comes' was my first attempt and it gave me goose bumps. I thought, 'This is pretty fuckin' good!'"

It is the followup to 2009's World Painted Blood.
