New Year’s Music Resolutions for 2014: Chapter 3

Hails my friends and welcome back to our series of “New Year’s Music Resolutions” for 2014. We’re now at Chapter Three of the submissions and it’s been some really cool stuff. I love hearing the inside scoop from the people whose music makes me glad I started this writing adventure in the first place. Okay without any further adieu let’s begin.

1. Lita Ford: My New Years Music resolution is to play more guitar. Collect guitars; One can never have enough guitars…… LOL. Rock a little harder. And have fun ! Fun Fun !!!

2. Paul Ablaze (Blackguard): My New Year’s Music Resolutions is to work heavily on my piano playing . I’ve been dabbling in it the past 2 years but I really want to dedicate myself to it this year .

The Deafening @ UC Lounge (7/9/2010)

Artist: The Deafening
Venue: UC Lounge (New York, NY)
g>Opener: n/a
Date: 7/9/2010
Label: Independent Artist

Even though the weekend was finally here for all of us to enjoy, I started my own musical adventuring last night with the Charred Walls of The Damned over at the Gramercy Theatre. Now it was time to head down to the Lower East Side to see what it was offering the Hard Rock fans of the Big Apple and one of the main reasons for my doing this was based on the amount of time since I had heard what was happening with the sextastic chanteuse Miss Coco Caine. I had not seen her since she decided to dispense with rainbow colored wigs and swapped them for a jet black coif that matched the spandex and leather she would now sport in her new band The Deafening. Clearly this was going to be a lot different from her material in Cocaine The Band, and it was bound to happen once the singer immersed herself in the teachings of Motley Crue and Guns ‘N Roses. The new members of the band come via Eddie Animal and Blackie Doyle on guitar and bass. The pair replaces those Miami Vice looking dudes from her earlier outfit and while white suits seemed par for the course with that band, it was clear that keeping it black was the logic with The Deafening.

“The Deafening” by The Deafening

Artist: The Deafening
Title: “The Deafening”
Label: Independent Artist
Release Date: 10/1/2010
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 3.75/5

The Deafening is the name of a relatively new band fronted by the legendary Coco Caine, the seductive Glamstress that once commanded the musical armies of the 80’s with Cocaine The Band. With The Deafening we find the singer approaching the modern day with a black leather boot heel instead of the glitter and her attitude is one of taking numbers and ripping them up in your face. That being said the new musical project presents five of its numbers to the hungry for Rock masses of the world in the form of their EP which is self titled. The release starts off with the rocking “Bass To The Treble” and it’s hard to not find you head bopping and foot stomping in time with it as Coco and the boys drive home the point. During the tune guitarist Eddie Animal showcases some serious lead guitar chops and that makes the listener know quickly that he must have studied the teachings of the greats back in his bedroom as he honed his craft in those days of youth. “Less Clean” follows up and demonstrates some of the incredibly powerful vocal register of Coco. The lady can belt them out without a doubt and I must inform you that it’s a melodic register and not her just screaming for the sake of being able to do so while the band pumps out the notes behind her. “The Jackals” is pretty good as the singer tells us of her CIA and NRA affiliations but the rest I will leave up to you to decide. During “Fill It In” the band gives us an almost anthem-type number and based on the way it’s flowing musically I can sense this becoming a big crowd tune or one that gets the fists pumping and lighters lighted. Perhaps in this day in age it will be everyone’s smart phones that showcase a lighter as opposed to a real one.
