Jakob Dylan is to music as Kyle Petty was to NASCAR: did somewhat OK at first, then had a very disappointing career compared to the old man.

Huh, I was just listening to Bringing Down the Horse this morning. Good album. I haven't picked up Rebel, Sweetheart. Is it any good?

It has a few good tracks. But I can listen to Bringing Down the Horse anytime so I may be a bit biased.

Isn't he the guy who got all cranky about people asking about his dad, even though he took his stage name?

IIRC, "Bob Dylan" is now his legal name, not "Robert Zimmerman". But either way, if Jacob didn't want people to think he was cashing in on his dad's name, then why not just change his name?

His real name is Jakob Dylan. Bob Dylan legally changed his name in 1962. Jakob's mother is Sara Dylan.

Then she's a slut two.

For some reason, I have sympathy for Jews who give up German names.

Well, she's easy to look at, but so hard to define.

I still think Empire Records is a better end of high school movie than American Pie. More people should glue quarters to floors.

What's up with that quote/pic?

what the crap is going on in here? im so confused......
 
2012-04-25 07:06:32 AM  
I'm OK with this, if it means we can also bring back 90's punk/ska. Less Than Jake and Goldfinger FTW

Breach is still my favorite

I assume his album drop will coincide with an appearance on Portlandia.

Wallflowers opened for CSNY at Madison Square Garden back in the late 90s. They were excellent performers regardless of the music itself (which I like).
 
2012-04-25 08:29:38 AM  
The first three albums were great... the fourth and fifth were really terribly produced, but some of Jakob Dylan's solo stuff wasn't bad, so I'm mildly optimistic.

I saw them open for Counting Crows and they did a hell of a set.

I really like Bringing Down the Horse and Breach.

Sublime would like a word.

I have no idea why I love Three Marlenas so much, but I do. I'll give the new tracks a listen.

I remember a terrible cover of Bowie's "Heroes" they did for the Godzilla soundtrack.

I DO miss 1996. I still had money then
 
2012-04-25 08:49:13 AM  
Whoo hoo!
 
2012-04-25 08:49:54 AM  
Honestly, their best album was their most recent one: rebel, sweetheart

He + his band have been releasing material steadily since they started. Subby must think that bands simply don't exist unless they're on the radio or doing RS interviews.

Eve 6 just put out a new album yesterday, and lit if currently in the studio. With this, all I need is Third Eye Blind to put out a new album, and I'll be set!

/Also, saw Eve 6 in concert Sunday. Great show, and they're just starting their tour! Get tickets if you can!

I never really got into their stoner reggae sound.

Fixed. I liked Sublime until I started branching out and hearing how much of their music was just crappy covers of songs I'd never heard before. in my defense, I was 17 at the time.

a week ago i was thinking "whatever happened to eve6?" i'd seen them about 9 or 10 years ago at lickfest in little rock, they were really good, and i remember the singer went onstage with a carebear.

then the next day i saw that they had a tour date announced for dallas.

probably won't go, but glad to know they're still around and making music

Am I the only person who LOVES their first album? The rest can't compare Imho.

/self-titled, not BDTH
//somebody else's money
///the other albums are ok tho

Already Disturbed: Breach is still my favorite


Breach is the only one I own, and I only own it by accident. It wasn't the feel-good hit of the summer, that's for sure... but the songwriting is very solid. Good album, and I'm happy to have it.

I worked at Blockbuster Video when One Headlight came out. It was on our trailer for at least 3 months. Every shift I "got" to listen to that song 4 times. Needless to say, whenever it came on the radio, I changed the station.

/Don't get me started on No Doubt's Don't Speak. Ugh.
//Also, "Blueueueueue, oh so lonesome for you..."

Man, I know that feeling. In 1998 I worked in a small-town grocery store where the radio was permanently set on a particular station that played virtually nothing but the current top 20 songs over and over and over. There are songs that are burned into my brain so that every time I hear them I have grocery store flashbacks of me stocking shelves or loading garbage into cargo vans.

I dig The Wallflowers, and Jakob Dylan's solo stuff... Their popular stuff from Bringing Down The Horse is great, but Rebel, Sweetheart is underrated. God Says Nothing Back is an amazing song.

That totally happens to me, too. One Headlight, Blue, Don't Speak, Where It's At, Where's the Love (yes, the second Hanson song), 3am by Matchbox 20. Right there, back in the pit, on a busy Saturday night with 5 people in every line.

CSB: the one cool thing about the BBV trailers were the Disney songs. When The Lion King came out on VHS, they had Can You Feel The Love Tonight? on the trailer. On one particularly busy Saturday evening, the song was playing in the background. It was so busy that we could barely hear the music. Well, the crowd did one of those weird "everyone goes silent at the same time" things, and it was timed perfectly to a little girl (about 4) belting out "CAN YOU FEEEEL THE LOOOOVE TONIIIIGHT?" Everyone turned to her and said "awwwwww!' and she got scared and hid behind her mom.

no we do not. "one headlight" holds the record for overplayedness for me: it was once on all FIVE raido preset radio stations in my car simultaneously.

vendetta. vendetta!

average band is average

Confessional time: The first Kareoke song I ever sang was "One Headlight."
