Top 5 Favorite Lyrics from Black Dots’ Everything Has Gotta Change
5. “Fight, fight, for what seems right, seemed to happen every night, common sense was a luxury they could never ever comprehend.”
4. “Open up it’ll make you weep. It’s a cry out loud and a tear on my cheek.”
3. “Remember back as far as you can, did you fall in line or take a stand?”
2. “I’m not afraid of getting old.”
1. “I waited my whole life for the world to do the right thing, traded my passion in for patience, but no more.”

Designated Dale
1. Thee Sinseers. Genuine soul and R&B is very much alive and well here in Los Angeles. You wish your band was this great.
2. Mickey Leigh, Mutated Music EP. Mickey and Co. continue to keep the true spirit of NYC rock’n’roll rocking and rolling.
3. Young John Watson, Motor Head Baby 7”. Back in 1953, this groovin’ R&B single hit the stands, and the copy I have belonged to my father who was but a slicked-back sixteen-year-old.
4. Downtown Juan, Robert Corales, and others serve up their version of cumbias, and it is gooooood.
5. L7 should have a new full-length record out on Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records by the time you’re reading this, and the few tracks I’ve heard so far promise a great time for all (it’s L7, for fuck’s sake!).
