Musical Moustaches

So for those who for whatever reason are not aware, the month of November was changed to "Movember" some time ago as a means of generating awareness for men's health issues, specifically prostate cancer.  It seems fitting then ,especially given the author's cartoonish profile persona to offer a tribute to some of the best moustaches in music, past and present.

"The Indie Social Scene Stache" - Charles Spearin

"The I'm Elvis Costello and You're F**king Not Stache" - Elvis Costello

"The My Last Name is The Hottest Planet Stache" - Freddie Mercury

"The Winnipeg Jazz Hands Stache" - Burton Cummings

"The Bat S**t  Crazy Stache" - Frank Zappa

"The I Used to Sleep With Crystal From Dynasty Stache" - Yanni

"The Pretty Good Village People Stache" - Construction Guy

Heavy Fives - Week of November 15, 2010

I feel like we are about to make up for lost time around here.  The end of a musical calendar year is quickly approaching and it is high time we start talking about all of that.

The random select who used to validate this little exercise in music nerd like self indulgence, suggested Heavy Fives was a neat weekly view of stuff we were spinning with some level of frequency ("we" as always, refers to the huge team of researchers and scholastic giants employed by this blog and paid well beyond industry norm for their insight and contribution) .

So let's see if we can get back into the swing of that weekly thang.

Five albums I/We had in heavy rotation this past week.

Magic Bullets - Magic Bullets

Everything Everything - Man Alive

Delays - Star Tiger Star Ariel

Funeral Party - Funeral Party

Bag Raiders - Bag Raiders
