Kiss My Ass: Classic Kiss Regrooved is a tribute album, featuring various artists covering songs by the American rock band Kiss, released in 1994.

Released to coincide with Kiss' 20th anniversary, the album was certified gold and spent 13 weeks on the charts.

The rights to Ace Frehley's makeup were not cleared in time for release, hence the inclusion of a hybrid form of Paul Stanley's "Bandit" design that was briefly used in some early shows and promotional photos. Censored variations of the album cover had the title changed to "Kiss my A**" to appease family-friendly retail chains.

"Deuce" - Lenny Kravitz/Stevie Wonder
"Hard Luck Woman" - Garth Brooks/Kiss
"She" - Anthrax
"Christine Sixteen" - Gin Blossoms
"Rock and Roll All Nite" - Toad the Wet Sprocket
"Calling Dr. Love" - Shandi's Addiction
"Goin' Blind" - Dinosaur Jr.
"Strutter" - Extreme
"Plaster Caster" - The Lemonheads
"Detroit Rock City" - The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
"Black Diamond" - Yoshiki
"Unholy (German Version)" - Die Ärzte

The album was released to generally mixed reviews. JT Griffith from Allmusic said that the album appealed neither to die-hard Kiss fans nor to pop radio listeners, but was probably more popular within fans of the individual bands participating in this project.

Although "Detroit Rock City" was released as a single, "Hard Luck Woman" is generally considered the most popular from the set. The most interesting reinterpretation was "Deuce." "Christine Sixteen" was considered the most faithful. The most daring cover was the slowed-down version of "Rock & Roll All Night".
This tribute was for Kiss' 20th Anniversary... they've been around for 45 years now!

When I woke up, mom and dad are rolling on the couch.
Rolling numbers, rock and rolling, got my KISS records out.

Quote:
Midnight Mission is the debut album by The Textones, released in 1984.

Carla Olson (born July 3, 1952) is a Los Angeles-based songwriter, performer and record producer. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Olson moved to Los Angeles, California, in 1978 where she formed the Textones, whose debut album Midnight Mission entered the Billboard 200. Olson has received critical acclaim for her work as a solo performer, band leader, and producer. She has worked with Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, Percy Sledge (Sledge has recorded five songs that Olson has written or co-written), Ry Cooder, Gene Clark, Don Henley, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, John Fogerty.

Olson also appeared in Bob Dylan's first video (for the 1983 song "Sweetheart Like You"). To return the favor, Dylan gave Olson his previously-unreleased song "Clean Cut Kid" which she recorded on Midnight Mission. Ry Cooder played slide guitar on the track.

AllMusic Review:
The Textones were one of the better bands to rise from the Los Angeles club scene in the late '70s and early '80s, but they were held back by what, paradoxically, was one of their most admirable qualities -- they were awfully hard to pigeonhole. The Textones were too beholden to rock tradition to fit in with the town's new wave scene, and too polished and poised for the speedy punk crowd; it's significant that original guitarist Kathy Valentine, a bit out of place in the Textones, would fare much better as a member of the Go-Go's. But they also sounded too lean and wiry to sit comfortably next to L.A.'s aging rock royalty, and leader Carla Olson's widely acknowledged enthusiasm for less celebrated rock heroes like Gene Clark and Mick Taylor (both of whom would eventually collaborate with her) made her seem too idiosyncratic for the mainstream audience.

Add in some fervent leftist populism and an instrumental approach that sounded like an efficient, intelligent variant on heartland rock (complete with saxophone in the Springsteen manner by Tom Junior Morgan), and you get a group that could move a crowd without conveniently fitting any one particular demographic.

The Textones' first full-length album, 1984's Midnight Mission, is also their best, the most effective blend of Carla Olson's impassioned vocals and principled songs with her bandmates' sleek but muscular attack that embraced folk rock and roots rock while adding a tuneful veneer that could have rocked the arenas if they'd had the right breaks. With the exception of the Bob Dylan cover "Clean Cut Kid," Olson penned the best songs on Midnight Mission, and her jangly guitar work meshed well with George Callins' chunkier sound, and Phil Seymour not only was a solid drummer and half of a fine rhythm section with bassist Joe Read, he was a superb harmony vocalist with Olson.

A fine example of how the concision of the new wave helped inform other rock styles as well, Midnight Mission was also the album that made Carla Olson one of the cult heroines of the L.A. roots rock scene, and she's rarely merged form and content as well as she did on this album.
A roots rock pioneer, Carla Olson is a highly regarded singer/songwriter, guitarist, and producer who has been at the forefront of the rock and Americana scene for over 30 years. Olson first emerged in the late 1970s with her band the Textones, playing a mix of blues, country, and old-school rock & roll. Marked by her soulfully weathered vocals and twangy guitar chops, she earned a cult following with the Textones' 1984 debut, Midnight Mission. She also garnered respect from the folk-rockers who preceded her, including the Byrds' singer/songwriter Gene Clark.

Olson was introduced to music at age five by her father, a classical pianist. Having started out on piano, by age 13 she had switched to acoustic guitar and spent hours learning how to play along with records by Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, the Beatles, the Everly Brothers, the Rolling Stones, and the Byrds. By 1967 she had sold her acoustic guitar to buy an electric one and began playing in local bands. It was during this period that she befriended local musician Don Henley.

In 1977, she formed the punk outfit the Violators with future Go-Go's guitarist Kathy Valentine. After a year, Olson and Valentine moved to Los Angeles, where they formed the seminal roots rock band the Textones.

The Textones signed with A&M and released their influential 1984 debut album, Midnight Mission, produced by Barry Goldberg. Prior to the album's recording, Olson had befriended former Byrds singer Gene Clark. Subsequently, Clark and hometown friend Don Henley sang backing vocals on the album, which also featured slide guitar contributions from Ry Cooder.

Carla's 67th birthday is next week.

Almost like a threat, eh? "Like Sinatra do ya Pally? Well we can arrange for you to see him, if you know what I mean."


Admittedly, sounds more like something Ticketmaster would do.

The Black Keys - Let's Rock, 48/24 FLAC. First listen. I've heard all their albums at least once, but The Black Keys are a band I've admired more then pursued, but the samples I heard were appealing so decided to give this one a try. I found this album to be quite appealing on first blush, a lighter, more elaborate sound, still just guitar, bass, and vocals, than I associate with them (again, as someone only so familiar). The Beatles kept popping to mind, for some reason. Seems like there's a lot to discover here, but more listens will be the proof of that. A little crisper sound than I associate with them, full, involving.

The B-52s - Cosmic Thing (30th Anniversary Expanded Edition) (Disc One), FLAC 96/24. First listen (to this edition not the album). Not actually disc one, of course, all came in one folder, but what would be. Excellent, crisp, detailed, revealing remaster that doesn't mind being turned up to 11 (or, at least, -9) at all. The first disc (section, whatever) has the remastered album and remixes. The second has a concert I shall enjoy in a bit.

The B-52s - Cosmic Thing (30th Anniversary Expanded Edition) (Disc Two, Live at The Pavillion, The Woodlands, Tx, 1990), 95/24 FLAC. First listen. Sounds like a reasonable Mixing board recording they've done their best with. But, their best is pretty decent. A quality show, not perfect, but perfectly believable, palpable how much better it would have been to be out on the floor, absolutely something to shake your honey buns to. And, like the rest of the collection, you don't have to be afraid of cranking it up.

Quote:
Plastic Fantastic is the seventh studio album by Flesh for Lulu, released in 1989.

Flesh for Lulu was a rock band formed in London active between 1982 and 1992. Nick Marsh (vocals and guitar) and James Mitchell (drums) formed the band and soon recruited Rocco (originally from Wasted Youth, guitar and vocals), and Glen Bishop (bass), taking their name from an American cult movie, Andy Warhol's Flesh For Frankenstein, and a flatmate of drummer James Mitchell named Lulu.

Their music was a mix of the New York Dolls and the Rolling Stones, with gothic rock's gloomy atmosphere and aesthetics, while also encompassing shades of punk, pop, country and western, David Bowie, rockabilly, and garage.

Creating an exotic, chaotic sound and a darkly glamorous look, FLESH FOR LULU quickly became a fixture at London's Batcave club where alongside Alien Sex Fiend, Siouxsie Sioux and Specimen they became architects of the original Gothic Rock style. They toured with The Cramps, Lords Of The New Church, The Ramones, and The Damned.

Their first mini LP, Blue Sisters Swing had a cover image of two nuns kissing, resulting in the album being banned in the United States and Europe.

A somewhat unexpected career boost arrived in the shape of big time Hollywood teen movie director John Hughes who declared his love for the band by first planting a FLESH FOR LULU poster on Molly Ringwald's bedroom wall in his smash hit 'Pretty In Pink' then featuring the song 'I Go Crazy' in that movie's follow up, 'Some Kind Of Wonderful'. As a result, a new, younger audience started attending their shows and the 'Long Live The New Flesh' LP (released shortly afterwards) became their biggest seller, spawning two more hit singles in 'Postcards From Paradise' and 'Siamese Twist'.

In the film "Ferris Buelers Day Off", Ferris has two Flesh For Lulu posters on his bedroom wall and Ferris owns a white Gretsch guitar identical to Roccos.

Soundtrack appearances:
  • Some Kind of Wonderful (1987) "I Go Crazy"
  • Uncle Buck (1989) "Slide", "Slowdown"
  • Flashback (1990) "Next Time (I'll Dream of You)"
  • The Next Karate Kid (1994) "Mystic Trader"

AllMusic Review:
Flesh for Lulu brings the noise in Plastic Fantastic to gain more fans in America, but ironically it's only the album's two most poppy love songs that found airplay in the United States. They also salvage a somewhat disappointing LP from a band who was finally able to attach hooks to their marriage of glam and goth on Long Live the New Flesh. But released in 1989, when spandex metal was dominating AOR stations, Plastic Fantastic turns up the amps.

"Decline and Fall" and "House of Cards" are passable rockers; they're much slicker than anything in Flesh for Lulu's early discography, so purists should be forewarned. Hidden in the rather forgettable material on Plastic Fantastic is the romantic "Time and Space" and the sultry "Every Little Word." "Time and Space" has Nick Marsh crooning love-stricken lyrics as dreamy new wave keyboards shimmer in adoration. "Time and Space" could've been as fondly remembered as new wave ballads like Depeche Mode's "Somebody" and the Psychedelic Furs' "The Ghost in You" if it was released earlier in the decade.

It's hard to chastise Flesh for Lulu for attempting to increase their audience on Plastic Fantastic; nevertheless, it's almost painful to hear gems such as "Time and Space" and "Every Little Word" surrounded by faceless guitar rock. And it flopped, too.
The band once narrowly escaped death when the brakes failed on their coach on the way to a gig in Barcelona. The bus was totaled and was written off. The band escaped unharmed.

Nick Marsh (vocals and guitar) died in 2015 from cancer.

Live the Love Beautiful is the 18th album from Drivin' N Cryin', released in June 2019.

Staccatofy Review: (9.2)
Live the Love Beautiful roster consist of Kevn Kinney on lead vocals, guitar hero Laur Joamets — an Estonian-born instrumentalist who first moved to America to perform with Sturgill Simpson, making his debut on the singer's Grammy-nominated Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, bass-playing co-founder Tim Nielsen, and longtime drummer Dave V. Johnson. The lineup may be revised, but the beating heart of Drivin N Cryin has just as much edge today as it did in 1985, when Kinney and Nielsen played their first show together.

Live the Love Beautiful captures the energy and electricity of DNC's live shows. Most of the 11 songs were captured in a series of live takes at Welcome to 1979 Studio in Nashville, Tennessee. There is always the hip spice of southern rock in DNC’s sound, which can be heard throughout the album.

Starting with the opening track, "Free Ain't Free," a populist anthem about everyday Americans, capitalist corporations, and the widening gap between the two. The album celebrates a life free of addiction with "Step by Step," gets political with "Spies," and takes a simple turn during "Over and Over." The driving force behind any great rock album is the guitar and Live the Love Beautiful has plenty of crunch, harmonized guitar solos, solid riffs, and some skilled slide guitar from Joamets. “Step by Step” strikes a solid balance of acoustic sounds with crunch guitar riffs set to a moving Southern Rock vibe.

The band’s sound is cohesive and balanced. The songwriting is strong with plenty of subtleties to bring a rewarding listening time and time again. Enjoy an American rock tradition built from experiences of decades on the road, live shows and rockin’ southern style with DNC’s Live the Love Beautiful. That’s the short of it!
My favorite album of 2019.
