CMJ Part 4: The New Pretenders? Dum Dum Girls Reboot Garage Pop

November 25th, 2011 by Andrzej CMJ Part 4: The New Pretenders? Dum Dum Girls Reboot Garage Pop

Dum Dum Girls are my new favorite band. The last time female garage pop sparkled so brightly was when the Pretenders released their debut album back in 1979. Like the Pretenders, they have songs. Unlike the Pretenders, this is an all girl band. They are also hot and stylish too. A combination guaranteed to succeed. […]

November 10th, 2011 by Andrzej Baaba Maal & Chris Salewicz: Talking Drums and Spoken Words from Africa To The World

October 26th, 2011 by Andrzej CMJ Part 2: Cody B. Ware swings Metal to save Hip Hop

Public Enemy are probably the best known proponents of Metal Hip Hop, but you have to see them live to really get that aspect of their music. Cody B. Ware describes himself as the saviour of Metal Hip Hop. I didn’t realize it needed saving. But he did play a remarkable show at Webster Hall […]

CMJ Day 1: Cairo Knife Fight bring fresh kill to the table

October 19th, 2011 by Andrzej CMJ Day 1: Cairo Knife Fight bring fresh kill to the table

Slice and dice, baby, slice and dice. It’s time for the long shadow of The White Stripes to step aside for two new kids on the block. Cairo Knife Fight have chosen an appropriate name. Wielding the sharpest knife in the souk, they’ve carved themselves a musical niche only dreamed of by lesser mortals. As […]

Shapeshifting trees in Cornwall, England

September 22nd, 2011 by Andrzej Shapeshifting trees in Cornwall, England

This remarkable clump of trees stands only a short walk from where the Camel River runs into the Celtic Sea, which is a part of the Atlantic Ocean. And so over the years they have shifted shape under the weight of a wind brought by serious storms and gales along this north Cornish coast. I've […]
