Now This is Rock and Roll! The Jessica Fletchers

The search for great rock and roll knows no boundaries and this week we head out to Oslo, Norway to sample the rock and roll delights of native son’s The Jessica Fletchers. Absolutely great harmonious rock and roll with just the right inflection of ‘60s influence make The Jessica Fletchers well worth your time. A fantastic band that you can start to get familiar with by checking out Bloody Seventies Love, Come On (It’s Only Nine), Sorry About the Love and Houses Burning Down. Great stuff worthy of a Nobel Prize in rock and roll.

Stipe Likes Canada

Michael Stipe is getting quite an appreciation for Canada according to Canada Helped Give Stipe Perspective. It’s far from some Utopian paradise but Canada is a great place to live and where not only is “liberal” not a bad word but is actually the name of one of the major political parties. Come and visit, we’d love to have you.
