Oscars Gone Wild

We were hoping for an Academy Award nomination from Paul Westerberg's Open Season soundtrack but this Elliott Smith song from Good Will Hunting proves they don't always get it wrong.

Isn't it?

The Punk Meets The Godfather

Iggy sings the JB classic

Weird Scene Inside Of Goldmine

In a recent issue of Goldmine Ray Manzarek made this bassless comment:
I think the secret to the Doors’ hypnotic sound comes out of the left hand keyboard bass. A fifth person, another physical element on stage, would have made it not a diamond. It would have taken away the diamond with Morrison at the point. As we faced the audience Morrison is at the point, (John) Densmore is at the point, behind Robby and I, who are point left and point right, a four-sided diamond, the purity of the diamond shape rather than some kind of pentagram star thing. And a fifth element would have confused it.

We at Philco Bros have one question:
Does the diamond still shine when Ian Astbury is at the point?

Idlewylde South

Zakk Wylde interview Feb 2007 Guitar World

The Allman Brothers' manager, Jonny Podell, knew I was a huge fan. So when something happened with Dickey and he couldn't do the show, Jonny called me. I was in the studio with Ozzy at the time. They flew me out on Saturday night for a show at Great Woods in Boston the next day. During rehearsal Gregg Allman comes over to me and says in his slow southern drawl, "Yo Zakk brother, you know how to play Dreams, 'bro?" And I was like "Oh the Molly Hatchet song?"(laughs) And he goes "Man another comment like that and we're gonna have to send you back home."(laughs) They hate Molly Hatchet! And I'm talking to the guy who originally wrote that amazing song!

But the show was cool as shit man. To me it sounded like Mahogany Rush playing with the Allman Brothers. (laughs) It was hilarious. After the first show they were like, "We love you Zakk. Now get the fuck out of here." I guess the Molly Hatchet and Frank Marino shit didn't go over too well. (laughs)

Alternative Idol

Tired of watching American Idol auditions every Wednesday night?
Then tune in to our favorite radio program
Pastures Of Plenty hosted by David Ritchie. It's on from 7-11pm and who knows he may even play Philco Brothers one of these nights. A few requests probably wouldn't hurt.

Princes Kept The View

All week long I was saying: Why is Prince on the super bowl he hasn't had a hit in 20 years?
The answer is because he's good. Still.
His halftime show was probably the best part of the game.

Stand Back

Shortly after Stevie Nicks appearance on the super bowl pre-game show a post on this site titled Stevie Nix got about 20 hits which means either a lot of Fleetwood Mac fans can't spell or The Hold Steady suddenly have a hit single.

Spongebomb Scaredpants

In defense of Boston authorities who may have overreacted the other day (they did) I have never seen Aqua Teen Hunger Force either. If it was a more popular character would they have reacted differently? Probably not. If you saw a device that sort of looked like a bomb (it did) and it had Spongebob on it would you not treat it as a threat? Would his smiling image supercede the fact that this device has batteries and wires and is attached to the bottom of a bridge? Probably not. As for the two fall guys their comedic timing was slightly off. Maybe they just got lost on their way to the doofus convention.

how to look and feel healthy

from :
Keith Richards has taken a health conscious move - he has started drinking organic vodka.
The Rolling Stones rocker was encouraged to go organic by bandmate Ronnie Wood's wife, Jo Wood, who is a keen advocate for green living.
Jo told the Daily Express: "I bought Keith 12 bottles of organic vodka for his birthday in December and when he got it he cracked up. I'm always going on about how the band should drink organic booze"

and they go jogging too!
