This Day In Music History: November 6

|#0|#1968  The Monkees‘ psychedelic movie “Head” opens in New York City. Marketed as the “most extraordinary adventure, western, comedy, love story, mystery, drama, musical, documentary satire ever made (And that’s putting it mildly),” the movie isn’t aimed at the band’s teen girl fans. It’s a dark, surreal, and absurdist contemplation of the nature of free will.

Some of the film’s imagery is disturbing, and the stream of consciousness storytelling style leaves most people cold. The band’s depiction of themselves as being helplessly trapped as their public personas strikes many as an affront to their fans, as does the shocking ending. The movie succeeds in destroying the band’s innocent public image, which is exactly what they want.

They probably didn’t want the awful reviews the film receives, or the sharp drop in the popularity of their music.

In later years, the movie would gain a cult following. Some fans view it as a fine — Read more

This Day In Music History: November 4

beatles1963   The Beatles play the Royal Command Performance, also called the Royal Variety Performance; the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret are in attendance. The Beatles are 7th on the 19-act bill, but they’re arguably the most anticipated.

The Fab Four plays “From Me To You,” “She Loves You,” and “Till There Was You.” Then John Lennon makes a cheeky announcement that would be in the headlines the next day:

“For our last number I’d like to ask your help. The people in the cheaper seats clap your hands. And the rest of you, if you’d just rattle your jewelry. We’d like to sing a song called “Twist And — Read more

This Day In Music History: November 1st.

ParentalAdvisory1985   The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) agrees to demands made by the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC), headed by Tipper Gore, Susan Baker, Pam Howar, and Sally Nevius (aka the Washington Wives).

As a result, the RIAA  agrees to slap offending albums with the now-famous “Parental Advisory” labels. Some mainstream stores like Wal-Mart refuse to sell albums that carry the label, but overall, record sales remain the same.

Other PMRC actions include forcing record stores to stock albums with explicit covers under the counter, and pressuring TV stations not to broadcast explicit songs or videos.

The PMRC had brought their concerns before the senate in August, producing examples of explicit songs. Their — Read more

Beginner Tips: The Language Of Guitar Amplifiers


What Does a Guitar Amp Do?

Everyone knows that guitars and amps go together – just like rock & roll and loud! We’ve all seen musicians onstage, with their guitars plugged into amps or stacks of amps. But why did he/she choose that particular amp – and what does an amp do other than make your guitar sound louder?

A guitar amp has two main functions. First, it allows you to “shape” the signal going from your guitar into the amp. Second, it takes that custom-tailored signal and drives it through the power amp, which then boosts the signal level and sends it to the speaker, so you can get face-melting volume (or at least — Read more
