  • Well, hell it’s been a damned rocky road to get to 2014. I feel like last year I was trucking along full speed and killing it with unbreakable momentum. The fact that I haven’t posted in over a month proves that I hit a roadblock. I apologize for ducking out for an unplanned hiatus. Hey, I’m only one guy–I don’t have a staff and only occasionally do I have other contributors, mostly this is a one man show. A show I intend to get back on the road. The main problem for me began in October when there was a...

  • It’s not often you find a debut EP from a band that you are so stunned with, that in the afterglow of listening to it you discover it’s all demos. So is the case with Celebration Guns, though what would you expect from former members of Wizards of Time, NEBA and Tiger Heist?  Apparently, lead singer Justin Weir recorded most of this “demo debut” using Garageband, but you wouldn’t know it from first listen. “Hold Still” opens the Quitter EP and recalls The Strokes when they were vital and they mattered, which means to say you have a brilliant hook...
