Ty Tabor’s Something’s Coming (out now)

23rd Mar 10 (Tue) 2 comments

I got King’s X guitarist Ty Tabor‘s newest solo album, Something’s Coming, in the mail yesterday.  Once through, I love it (as if there would be any doubt).  It features Jimi Hazel and Rick Skatore from 24-7 Spyz, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal from Guns N’ Roses, and Wally Farkas of Galactic Cowboys and Xenuphobe.  You can get it over at Molken (mp3 download or the better option… a physical CD).

2010 anticipated albums

30th Dec 09 (Wed) Leave a comment

So, the year end and decade end recaps are in process (the monkeys I ordered are in the back room typing away) … I needed something to fill the gap… here are some artists who are expecting to release new material in 2010, all of which I’m looking forward to…




The Album Leaf‘s A Chorus of Storytellers, My Brightest Diamond‘s Shark Remixes box set, Go from Jónsi Birgisson of Sigur Rós, French singer Jeanne Cherhal‘s Charade, George Hrab‘s Trebuchet, 12 new albums from John Zorn, Mike Patton’s Mondo Cane and hopefully Crudo (if they’re both not put off due to Faith No More reunion touring), Derek Webb‘s Democracy Vol 1 (and he’s even recording with Caedmon’s Call for a 2010 release or two), guitar phenom Kaki King, maybe the Secret Chiefs 3 will finally release Book of Souls (it’s their “Chinese Democracy”), Eisley & Perma (a side project with Sherri from Eisley), Ellery from Cincinnati, Ty Tabor of King’s X, A.N.M. featuring Doug Pinnick of King’s X and Jimi Hazel of 24-7 Spyz, Ken Andrew and Co’s Digital Noise Academy, Trent Reznor’s just announced new Nine Inch Nails album, Silverchair are working on one, Radiohead are hitting the studio (maybe something out by year’s end), and… Ani DiFranco – I mean, it’s inevitable… right?

Plus many more great albums due out in 2010, I’m sure.

As reported on Blabbermouth

Jimi Hazel — guitarist, vocalist and producer of acclaimed heavy metal soul band 24-7 SPYZ — has announced the formation of what is now being billed as the “first black supergroup” called A.N.M. (a.k.a. ANTI N***ER MACHINE).

The band’s lineup is as follows:

  • Doug Pinnick (KING’S X): Vocals
  • Jimi Hazel (24-7 SPYZ): Guitar, Vocals
  • Rick Skatore (24-7 SPYZ): Bass, Vocals
  • Spacey T (SOUND BARRIER, FISBONE): Guitar, Vocals
  • Greg Fulton (CYCLONE TEMPLE, RWA): Guitar, Vocals
  • Phil D. Fish (FISHBONE, WICKED WISDOM): Drums, Percussion

Commented Jimi: “This is gonna be a beautiful thing and we will drop some of the heaviest, funkiest and crunchiest music heard in a long time! I’m honored to be a part of music making history with my brothers and I know that people will be more than happy when they hear what comes from us!

A.N.M. is currently talking to labels in search of a home for what will become one of the highly anticipated releases of 2010. The band plans to spend the winter writing and recording and hopes to release a CD in late spring or early summer.

I dug the Doug collaboration with 24-7 Spyz (back in 1996) on Heavy Metal Soul By the Pound.  With Doug on lead vocal duties and Fishbone members in the mix, this promises to be pretty damn good.  I’m not too fond of their band name.  I mean, I understand the meaning and where they’re coming from.  I just don’t necessarily “prefer” their choice.  Regardless, I bet the music will be great.
