Boring – RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS Can’t Stop Repeating Themselves

27 November 2022

The Californian heroes released their 2nd double LP of the year a few weeks ago.
It’s called Return Of The Dream Canteen and it sounds as a collection of songs
that didn’t make their last 5 or so longplayers.

To make sure that everyone agrees on that, they lifted a new single
off the double LP. It’s named The Shape I’m Takin’ and it’s boring.

Who: Female dream-pop

Released: 14 October 2022 – order info here

Juliette Jackson (voice/songwriter) about the album: “So much of the album I wrote
while I was pregnant and basically just wondering what the hell this was going to be like.
When I listen to it now, I can hear myself saying all these things and having all these anxieties. Those songs are a bit more floaty and just thinking about things and the songs I wrote after are more like the reality of extreme highs and extreme lows and the whole hormonal madness.”

NME:Lead singer Juliette Jackson’s pregnancy – and the band’s “recommitment” to each other – make the songwriting on album three immensely personal… From their pen through to their sound, ‘Here Is Everything’ is emotive and glossy; one that gives space to breathe in this busy world… Their deepest, most emotional album yet.” Score: 4/5.

Key single/slcip: Wide Eyes

TUTV: Their 3rd, their absolute best.
A blissful pop achievement.

Looks like the cover artwork was designed in the 60s for the Summer Of Love

Notorious funk-punk-rock celebrities RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS have their
second double LP of the year out only 6 months after Unlimited Love.

The new one is baptized RETURN OF THE DREAM CANTEEN and sounds
like the previous one, and the previsous one and the previsious one.
As the cliché goes it’s ‘a fan album’.

Rolling Stone Magazine: “At 75 minutes is even longer than its predecessor,
is essentially “Unlimited Love II.” it’s a bit of a stop-gap, but also a nice coda
Score: 3.5/5.

TUTV: I just made a compilation of the best 12 tunes of both
double albums. Guess what? It’s one of the best RHC albums
I ever heard.

HIGH FIVE – 5 New Big Ones For The Weekend

5 new big ones to stay on track in the weekend

1 October 2022

Megastars THE WAR ON DRUGS released a deluxe box
set for their 2021 longplayer I Don’t Live Here Anymore.

It includes a 7″ with two previously unreleased tracks of which
you can hear OCEANS OF DARKNESS here. A zealous roller.

THE WAR ON DRUGS: Facebook – Instagram – Tour 2022

Who: Up and coming indie 4-piece
from Dundee, Scotland.

A cut from their upcoming debut EP ‘A Summer’s Day Can Break Your Heart’, out 21 October.

Ross McQueen (singer/songwriter) “This is pretty hard for me to talk about, but I wrote this song about having feelings for another guy, and not knowing how to deal with it. It’s about the guilt that came with it and being unsure where I fit in amongst society. I had always considered myself straight and didn’t really feel like I could exist in any LGBTQ+ spaces. I felt like an imposter. I just remember being so confused, there was this social commentary screaming “be yourself” and “be open about your sexuality” all over the place and I just thought, “what if I can never be like that?”. ”

The track is a fuzzy, feel-good indie anthem – think The Jesus and Mary Chain in
a happy mood – that nods to shoegaze greats past while shooting for the moon
on a synth-powered rocket.

Psychcandy for daydreamers…

New striking strokes

Between their 11th LP The Getaway and this year’s double one Unlimited Love,
there was a time gap of six years and now RHCP are gearing up for their 2nd double album this year. Good job, guys.

It’s baptized Return Of The Dream Canteen and
hits the streets on 14 October. More info here.

One of the tracks is called EDDIE in memory of guitar wizard
Eddie Van Halen who passed away (almost) 2 years ago.

Anthony Kiedis ‘frontman): “Sometimes we don’t realize how deeply affected and connected we are to artists until the day they die. Eddie Van Halen was a one of a kind. The day after his death Flea came into rehearsal with an emotional bassline. John, Chad and I started playing along and pretty soon with all our hearts, a song in his honor effortlessly unfolded. It felt good to be sad and care so much about a person who had given so much to our lives. Although the song doesn’t speak to Eddie by name, it talks about his early days on the Sunset Strip and the rock n roll tapestry that Van Halen painted on our minds. In the end, our song asks that you not remember Eddie for dying but for living his wildest dream.”

A full-hearted ditty for Eddie.

The PEPPERS Are Really Red Hot – Their Second Double Album Of 2022 Hits The Streets In October

Notorious funk-punk-rock celebrities RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS just announced a new double album, coming in October, only six months after Unlimited Love, also a double longplayer, made thier millions of devotess happy last Aptil.

The new one is named Return Of The Dream Canteen
and will be dropped on 14th October via Warner Records.

Press statement: “We went in search of ourselves as the band that we have somehow always been. Just for the fun of it we jammed and learned some old songs. Before long we started the mysterious process of building new songs. A beautiful bit of chemistry meddling that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way. Once we found that slip stream of sound and vision, we just kept mining. With time turned into an elastic waist band of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It felt like a dream. When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with. Well we figured it out. 2 double albums released back to back. The second of which is easily as meaningful as the first or should that be reversed. ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’ is everything we are and ever dreamed of being. It’s packed. Made with the blood of our hearts, yours truly.”

And Flea and Kiedis broke the news heir way,
on stage, two nights ago in Denver, Colorado

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS Released One Of Their Best Albums ‘BY THE WAY’ 20 Years Ago Today

Back in time

9 July 2022

Active: Since 1983 / 12 LPs (so far), with this
year’s Unlimited Love as the most recent one.

Anniversary album: BY THE WAY – 8th LP
Released: 9 July 2002 – 20 years ago today

NME said: “By god is it ever long (it’s 16 tracks), but on the whole it showcases
enough of what makes the Chili Peppers a very good rock group – chief among
these are John Frusciante’s excellent, inventive guitar playing, and the fact that
it is with tremendous conviction that Anthony Kiedis belts out even the most
ridiculous words.”
Score: 7/10.

TUTV: I’m not an ardent RHCP fan, but this LP is their best ever to my
ears, after deleting the 6 not-so-good tracks out of the total of 18.

Singles/clips: By The Way / The Zephyr / Can’t Stop

Waking Up With… Brand New PEPPERS Single ‘NEVER FLIP’

Works faster than caffeine

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS gave the world their 12th LP Unlimited Love
about two months ago. The best selling rock album so far in 2022 after
topping the American and UK Album Charts, and also numero uno in
several European countries.

And they keep on spoiling their fans. The Peppers just dropped a brand
new song called NERVE FLIP, originally released as a bonus track on the
Japanese edition of Love Unlimited.

It’s RHCP by numbers, but punky funky
enough for this Sunday morning…
