Rock and Roll Report Podcast #56 – A Cheaper Kind of Love

hilton and spearsAfter taking a week away from audio to get Rock and Roll Report TV launched I am back on board the Rock and Roll Report Podcast jet plane and buzzing over some amazing rock and roll. None of the bands played on this podcast have ever been played before on the podcast and my usual reaction prevailed as I listened to these tracks namely “Why have I not heard this stuff before?”

I tried to mix it up this week with a nice dose of the heavy, the punky and the power poppy because that to me is what is most fun about rock and roll, the sheer variety of the music. I hope you like that aspect of rock and roll and if you don’t, just wait a few minutes and something else will come on. Who knows, you might even like something you would never have given the time of day to before? If that happens, let me know!

The Rock and Roll Report Band of the Week is Drink Up Buttercup

Drink Up ButtercupIn the ferocious manner that indie music floods our senses lately, the good stuff can easily get drowned out by the rest.  Sometimes it just takes a little bit of luck to come across those hidden gems.  I had the pleasure of not only seeing the Philly-based band “Drink Up Buttercup” play twice recently, but I also got to ask them a few questions about the trials and tribulations (and of course the joys) of being a musician these days.

As I approached the boys whom where strewn across a 5 x 5 NYC sidewalk I was greeted with a crooked smile and a plume of cigarette smoke.  After the introductions (as I tried to get straight which boy was whom) we decided to walk to a nearby park (since it was a beautiful day, and New York had not seen sunshine in over 20 days) and sit by their van to conduct the interview.  I’m glad I was able to speak to these guys because some of the questions I asked developed into some very interesting conversations.
