Last night it was the Blue Oyster Cult. Apparently in the eighties they made a soundtrack for a really awful horror film - you know, the kind with really garish neon green cover illustrations, which used to sit gathering dust on the video store shelves?

Alas.

Did I mention I lost my entire cd collection in a flood?

Mr Evil

If you get VH1 in your neck of the woods, may I reccomend That Metal Show? While it doesn't have any music, it is an interesting way to keep up with things metal. And Eddie Trunk can pull off a good interview.

I love Eddie Trunk! I've seen a couple episodes of that. . . a much better interviewer than most of those teeny boppers out there. . .

Mr Trunk is one of a few rock journalists who takes the whole metal genre seriously. I think that what makes him as good as he is. The man has an encycopedic knowledge of the music as well. Stump the Trunk proves that..

Way back in the time machine for this one. Way, waaaay back. To the Vietnam War.

You're in a foxhole, fighting in a war that can only be described as purposeless, nonsensical and violent. Around you is all the napalm, LSD and hopelessness you could ever want.

When out of the blue, on 69 MHZ on the FM dial, a renegade soldier begins to broadcast. He speaks directly to you... as a human being in a hopeless, unpredictable situation. He plays the 'acid rock' of the day, but what's REALLY acid is his incendiary polemic. He mocks the major players in Washington who WANT this war, who NEED this war, and who need your body, either whole or torn to shreds, to fulfill their fantasies.

And all four armed services are after him.

Fast-forward to 2006, when Dave Rabbit made his comeback in Iraq. No foolin'.

Doesn't sound like Metal.

Band of the day: Gwar. Metal indeed.
