The Things They Do for Ringo

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018 by The Professor

The All-Starr Band trumps its winning hand of Aces in Atlantic City

Radio RockonTour host Timothy Tilghman

Ringo Starr on tour? It must be summertime! That’s right, Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band are on tour, but the USA only scored two exclusive dates: June 1st & June 2nd at The Borgata in Atlantic City. The full-scale 2018 All-Starr Band tour appeared at dates in Europe this summer before the current incarnation will return to launch an extended tour of the USA in the Fall.

The 13th All-Starr Band line-up is featuring its first change in five years. Joining the veteran ASB as a first-time performer is Graham Gouldman, bassist with 10cc. 10cc routinely tours across Europe and the United Kingdom, but American audiences should recall the two major hits 10cc had in the 1970s.

Participating in the 2018 installment of the All-Starr Band are guitarist Colin Hay from Men At Work rejoining the ASB from two previous tours in the past, guitarist Steve Lukather from Toto,  keyboardist Greg Rollie from Santana, and drummer Gregg Bisonette from Spinal Tap as well as multi-instrumentalist Warren Ham. The Euro tour showcased two guest performances: Joan Baez in Paris and Klaus Voormann in Hamburg.

Review: Pompeii Graffiti- Internet World Tour

Thursday, April 26th, 2018 by WLOY Staff

Artist: Pompeii Grafitti

Album: Internet World Tour

Release Date: 04/29/18

RIYL: Turnover, Bong Wish, ManDancing

Rating: 7/10

Recorded at a bunch of different locations with a bunch of guest musicians, each song on the local band’s new album, Internet World Tour, has its own personality. Although all the songs are unique in their own way, they still all blend to create a cohesive album, representative of Pompeii Graffiti itself. The whole album keeps you jamming out to its inviting lyrics, sonic depth, and upbeat percussion.

Internet World Tour takes the fun, nerdy pop-punk of the old Pompeii Graffiti and adds a level of maturity, reinventing and evolving the band that WLOY knows and loves. With its various guest musicians playing string instruments, songs like “Vanishing Act” and “Black Aggie” feel full and have an element of mystery that is new to Pompeii Graffiti’s sound. I like to call this the new nerdy pop-punk: representing the pop-punk concepts of failure with a more indie and modern rock sound.

My personal favorites are “Pulling Teeth,” which makes you want to jump around, “White Coat Syndrome,” which brings out some 2000’s alternative nostalgia, and “Gaius,” which is more mellow with playful violin. However, I had a hard time even choosing three favorites, seeing as each song has its one merit, whether it be an alternation in female/male lead vocals, melancholy lyrics, kick-ass guitar solos, arena-like energy, or even a horn section. You can find your own favorite here once the album is released on April 29th, or watch the live performance of each song off the album here. With all these different sounds to choose from and all these videos to watch, it’s almost impossible to pin Pompeii Graffiti down, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
