From the Basement | Beastie Boys On "The Scott & Gary Show"

Posted by

On January 29, 1984 Scott Lewis and Gary Winter hosted their second ever public access television show "The Scott & Gary Show" in New York. On that particular edition of their show a very young group of talented lads (and a lady) appeared. As Scott Lewis explains, he had just seen them open for the Dead Kennedys and the audience seemed to take a liking to them - so why not introduce them to the public-access-television-watching world. They were Michael, Adam, Adam and Kate and they called themselves Beastie Boys. Kate was Kate Schellenbach, punk rock drummer for alt, indie...

From the Basement | Radiohead live at the BBC Studios

Posted by

It's pretty hard to argue the point that Radiohead is not the greatest progressive-art-rock group ever assembled. Here's an example why - A live performance of their track "The National Anthem" off of their 2000 album Kid A from back in '08 during a recorded "BBC Studios" live session. For all of the "techno-electro pop smoke, mirrors, bells & whistles" employed by Radiohead and their long-time producer and collaberat0r Nigel Goodrich in crafting any one of their LPs, they always seem to manage to sound just as good if not better when live.

From the Basement | Andrea True Connection's More, More, More

Posted by

In honor of The Sundance Channel's airing of the tremendous 2005 doc from Imagine Entertainment & HBO Documentary Films, Inside Deep Throat - a film which details the odd, groundbreaking and oftentimes tragic stories surrounding the 1972 film Deep Throat and it's beleaguered star Linda Lovelace - this month, we dig up out of the basement archives the ultimate 1970s porn soundtrack anthem: Andrea True Connection's unlikely billboard hit "More, More, More." Andrea True Connection, aka Andrea True, a well-known pornographic actress in her own right, recorded the song written by Gregg Diamond as the disco-porn-meld national anthem in 1976...
