"Go back, Jack. Do it again."

With it being so obnoxiously hot and humid in the city that we can barely peel ourselves off the naugahyde couch to try and dry off in the shower and the television offering little but reruns of shows that sucked the first time, we here at Rock*Land have taken a page from the less inspiring latter career of The Rolling Stones.
To whit:

1) Make crap album.

2) Release (another) "Greatest Hits" with crap single from new album.

3) Tour ($$$)

4) Release "Live" Record of Tour.

5) Rinse.

6) Repeat.

So with that in mind pull on your dark socks and sandals and head down to...

at Route 85A - downstairs - 85 Ave A btw 5th/6th


10pm till the network execs pull the plug.

With all your favorite family episodes:

"Leave that Elf Alone!" - the first of a special two parter in which Ricky learns the true meaning of Kwanzaa.

"I'll Do to that Elf Whatever I Fancy" - the startling conclusion, in which Shelby teaches Ricky the false meaning of Kwanzaa with the aid of a cattle prod and a Nixon mask.

"Bloodfeast of the Zombie Aliens with Laser Eyes" - a never aired pilot, starring Dave, which was slightly retooled and became the long running and beloved "Friends."

"Reverend Timmy meets the Return of the Son of the Revenge of the Phantom of the Park" - which received a Cable Ace nomination for "Best Writing for Finger Puppets in a Shoddy Sequel Special"

and of course, how could you ever tire of the continually high-caliber performance of Miss Jilly
(we're all really fond of the part where she gives us our drinks.)

Other reasons not to watch T.V. coming soon:
Our very own Richard Bacchus and his band Vasquez on "Live at the Continental, Best of NYC Vols. 1 & 2"

(stay tuned for the 411 on the record release party, July 30 - week from Saturday - The Continental)

Monday - July 25 at Trash Bar

"Bands may come, bands may go..."

"But Rock 'n Roll's gonna go on forever...
All Day and All The Night!"
- Ray Davies on "One for the Road


In an effort to keep the wheel turning and hype the crap out of something before anyone else gets ahold of it and uses it for a Volkwagen commercial, we here at Rock*Land are very proud to have 2 members of the up and coming band:

Chorizo Lightning
DJ'ing with us this Thursday.

Emperor Marcus Aurelius
Huevos Thunderos

(undisputed master of the Moogerfooger)
And you thought we were making that Moogerfooger thing up.
(Fair enough, we thought he was making it up, too.)

So grab your electric sausage, and head on down to:
sponsored by the kind folks at Rheingold Beer
at Route 85A - downstairs - 85 Ave A btw 5th/6th
10pm till all the meat products are speakin' Mexican.

Along with the usual overcooked, greasy breakfast food products:

Ricky - who played briefly with MA and Huevos when they were touring as "The Tinkerbell Chorus and Revue"
Shelby - who thinks the band is probably a bunch of knuckleheads and is glad this'll probably be the last anyone hears of them.
Davey - who attended college with MA and thinks he may still be owed $40 on a hockey bet. (Rangers 4 - Pens 2, c'mon, man. We shook on it!)
Rev. Timmy - who is terrified of any band formed since 1989 and will probably cower in the office until someone lets him play a Gene Vincent record.

and of course the delightful Miss Jilly, whose mastery of distilled and malted beverages will no doubt soon earn her at least 15 minutes of fame.

More one hit Rock*Land wonders to scribble on your calendar (or your forearm):
Wednesday - July 13 (that's next Wed)
Arlene's Grocery - 95 Stanton St. between Ludlow and Orchard St's.
11:30 pm - Richard Bacchus
11pm - The Reverend Timmy James
10pm - Slip of a Girl aka Catherine Whyte
9pm - Jude Kastle

Also Ricky & Rev. Timmy are going to Boston:
(to try to get a whole other kind of curse going)
July15 8:00 PM - The Abbey Lounge - 3 Beacon St , Somerville, Boston

So get down here and meet
Chorizo Lightning
They'll be playing songs from their new album
"Indavisible" throughout the night
and generally yucking it up in an obnoxious manner.
But then, if you're not used to that yet,
you ain't getting used to it.
