DAVID SPELMAN DISCUSSES PRODUCING RICK BARRY’S NEW ALBUM “CURSES, MALEDICTIONS AND HARSH REITERATIONS”

spelman

David Spelman is a classically-trained musician who has built guitars, launched music festivals, and produced albums and film soundtracks. His work has taken him literally around the world, but he’s happiest when he’s at home in Ocean Grove. We recently caught up with him to discuss the making of Rick Barry’s soon-to-be-released album, “Curses, Maledictions […]


THE BATTERY ELECTRIC RECORD RELEASE SHOW AT BERKELEY BAR SATURDAY, JUNE 1

batteryelectric4

The Battery Electric are anything but all hat, no cattle. These Asbury Park misfits stand for good ol’ dirty rock n’ roll. Their new album, Weaving Spiders, was recently released on the Little Dickman Records label. Representation like that tells you these guys are no joke. We’ve got the new record and we’re digging it […]

EASTERN ANCHORS: FRIDAY, MAY 31 AT ASBURY LANES

easternanchors

Eastern Anchors are men of few words. At least in this interview. But that’s exactly how we like it. Short and sweet. No bullshit. Straight to the point. We caught up with this Red Bank based band, asked them a few questions and they fired right back. Eastern Anchors are singer/guitarist Walter Greene, bassist Dave […]

Anchor contributor David Spelman is currently working with Barry on his new album featuring Larry Campbell (three-time Grammy Award winner), […]


HAPPY MONDAYS: BEACH DAY WITH PLATO ZORBA TONIGHT (5/6)

beachday

They call themselves a 60s surf rock, girl group, garage band. Lots of genres there. But even though the drummer has long hair, we’re pretty sure the moustache blows his cover. Beach Day hails from Hollywood, FL. Hence they named their band after just about every day of the week down there. They’ll be passing […]


GET HAPPY WITH FLORIDA’S SWIMM

swimm

Happy Monday’s welcomes SWIMM to their Monday, April 29th lineup along with Jake’s Gorillas and Not Blood Paint. The Florida based indie pop psych rock duo just released their new EP Feel.  The song “Too Old, ” features its fair share of ’60s psychedelic guitar shredding and is about grown men not wanting to grow up. “[Too Old] is […]


BROWN BIRD, THURSDAY, APRIL 18 AT THE SAINT

brownbird

Some might call it an Americana renaissance of sorts. It’s the folk/bluegrass/roots music revival spun with indie sensibilities that’s been taking hold across the good ol’ U.S of A as of recent years. With seemingly everything in America being imported these days, it’s refreshing to see people rediscovering and reinventing a musical form synonymous with […]


HAPPY MONDAYS WITH SEA CREATURE

seacretures

Photic zone psychedelia. Pulsating sonic frequencies.  Swirling, dragging you into the deep sea. Weaving vivid audible tapestries. The above words may give you a brief description of the sound that is Sea Creature, a band initially based out of Asbury Park. I would hear them some years back, practicing down the hall at the Hot […]


HAPPY MONDAYS AT THE WONDER BAR KICKS OFF TONIGHT (4/1)

LCC_EH4C8140_HIRES-(1)

Monday night doesn’t usually inspire me to get off my ass for anything outside of my apartment. After a long weekend, my laptop, some Netlfix and a cold beer or three are enough to help me decompress. That is unless there is some quality live music happening somewhere in town. And that usually isn’t the case. Which […]


THE RIBEYE BROTHERS AT THE CABARET (3/8)

ribeye2

The Ribeye Brothers, lots of beer and chicks dancing half nekked behind a bar. Maybe throw in a few peanuts. We’ll take that any Friday night of the month. This band with its own brand of barnyard rock and roll will play along with Acid at the class establishment known as The Cabaret Go-Go bar […]


SATURDAY NIGHT (2/23); THE GRAND K, WANDS

grandk

This Saturday, February 23rd will be a rough night for decision making. Especially if you’ve been sucking back on a few. Asbury super group The Grand K at Brighton Bar in West End, Long Branch? Or Wands at The Berkeley Bar in Asbury Park? The Grand K go on at 11:30PM. Wands probably around the […]


RIVAL SCHOOLS “FOUND” LP TO BE RELEASED ON APRIL 9TH

Rival_Schools

The Rival Schools line up reads like a “best of the best” list of the New York hardcore and underground music scene. Walter Schriefels (Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today, Quicksand, and Walking Concert) on guitar/lead vocals, joined by Ian Love, also on guitar/backing vocals. Ian cut his teeth in the now legendary early nineties hardcore […]


WOMEN, WHISKEY AND FREEDOM WITH THE BATTERY ELECTRIC

batteryelectric

The Battery Electric is an American rock ‘n roll band from Asbury Park, NJ that sings about women, whiskey and freedom. Not a bad combo. Speaking of women, the band, made up of long time friends Ron Santee on vocals and drums, Brent Bergholm on guitar and Alex Rosen on bass, has been known to […]


AN INTERVIEW WITH TINTON FALLS RESIDENT AND FRONTMAN OF OLD WOUNDS BRANDON GALLAGHER

oldwounds4

I listened to Old Wounds self released “Sleeper” EP a few years back and was quickly floored by the barbarically heavy onslaught of their music. I was equally impressed with the aphotic visual aesthetic of the band which I learned was driven by drummer/vocalist Brandon Gallagher’s graphic design work. Soon after I met Brandon (a […]


LITTLE DICKMAN RECORDS CALLS ASBURY PARK HOME

littledickman

We always appreciate people who don’t take themselves too seriously. And when you come up with a name like Little Dickman for your record label and broadcast it to the public, mad props are in order. Little Dickman Records is a new record label based in Asbury Park whose sole purpose is to find and […]


REVIEW: MONSTER MAGNET “SPINE OF GOD” AT BRIGHTON BAR 12/29/2012

Monster_Magnet

“15 miles to cop on our Sting Rays, boys we’re gonna ride tonight. Goofballs and the 70’s nipples, gotta get our heads just right. Sit me in the lap of the God’s babe, cover me with skin and hair” – Monster Magnet “Nod Scene” Fuck what you heard! Monster Magnet is the best rock band to […]

grandk

Local super group The Grand K kick off the holidays right along with Nicole Atkins who will be performing at The Berkeley Bar at Dauphin Grille on Saturday, December 22 at 10PM. The show is free. The whiskey and eggnog are not. 


REVIEW: THE MUNSENS ARE BALL GRABBING GOOD

munsens

Facebook has its good and bad. Honestly, I really don’t give a shit that you just checked in at Wegman’s. Or that you made spaghetti for dinner. Did you really need to take a picture of your meatballs for all the world to see? Besides, they look like crap anyway. And if I see one […]


REVIEW: DINOSAUR JR. AT TERMINAL 5

dinojr

I first heard Dinosaur Jr. like I did most bands, through the subculture of skateboarding. Specifically in the Cow Skates “Ohio Skate Out” video. After seeing Ohio Skate Out I soon found myself at the local mall, quickly rushing the counter with a cassette copy in hand of “You’re Living All Over Me”. To this […]


AUSTIN’S NOT IN THE FACE TONIGHT (11/29) AT THE SAINT

notintheface2

It’s one of the best parts of living in a music city like Asbury Park. Great bands coming and going all the time. Some you’ve heard of, others you couldn’t give a fuck about. At least that’s what you thought. Not in the Face is a prime beef example. Never heard of ‘em. I later […]


REVIEW: OM AT THE BOWERY BALLROOM WITH DAN HIGGS

om

I remember first hearing Sleep in one of the many crash pads that were scattered through out Point Beach in the early 90’s. Most of these places had about five or more kids just out of High School crammed into a living space meant for two. On this occasion my friend Greg and I were […]
