New Jersey is my adoptive home. It’s where I grew up, not just physically but musically as well and my relationship to the likes of Edison, Les Paul, David Sarnoff is only trumped by my interest in and love of the likes of Springsteen & Van Zant & the E Street Band, Jon & Richie & Bon Jovi, Skid Row, Lauryn hill & Wyclef & the Fugees, Ice T, Queen Latiffa, Patti Smith, Sinatra, Basie, Bennett, Cozy Cole, Al di Meola, Bill Evans, Joe Pass, John Pizzareli, Sara Vaughn, Rory Black, Paul Simon and countless others including the Dillinger Escape Plan, Burnt by the Sun, Luddite Clone, Dischordance Axis, God Forbid, Dim Mak, Cognative, Strychnia, Folly, Lifetime, Ensign, the Misfits, Toothgrinder, Ripping Corpse, Overkill and many, many more.
Diving into this year’s show the new East of the Wall set the tone. It’s fucking genius and I don’t know how I ever overlooked it. From there it was getting acquainted with new Binary Code, another band I’ve enjoyed for a long time as was surprisingly behind on their latest work, an atmospheric endeavor that challenges everything you thought you knew about them. That led into Thank You Scientist, a band which I am woefully under-exposed to and don’t possess nearly enough of and their latest, another emotional showdown in the vein of Coheed and Cambria that’ll leave your cranium churning. Meanwhile I was feeling very much in a dirty rock mood and revisted Zakk, who despite all his success is still one of Jersey’s best kept secrets…and the Bouncing Souls who despite not getting nearly enough spins on the show are one of the top plays this time of year from my personal listening year in and year out. While I was revisiting good ol’ listenings it brought back classic Thursday and My Chem and the #12 a great reminder of my time working with Eyeball Records back in the day.
