I Discuss All Kinds of Seventies Rock Goodness on That's Not Current Website

I have had a blast writing about some of my favorite rock music from the 1970s on the fun pop culture website That's Not Current ( recently. Here are links to three of my articles there. I hope you either learn about a lot of great new-to-you music or have a fun trip down memory lane. I provide YouTube links to many songs in the articles so that you can instantly give a listen to the bands I write about.

I did a two-part series about the British rock band Sweet, which found success in four different styles of rock music --- not an easy feat. Part one looks at the band's singles and gives an introductory history to this talented quartet:

Part two focuses on the band's albums:

You can also find the second installment in my "Bands That Deserved Better" series. Whereas part one took a lot at some unsung hard rock groups from the 1970s, part two shines a spotlight on a few British and European rock bands with differing styles; namely, Fabulous Poodles, The Inmates, No Dice, New Adventures, and Taxxi.

Have fun reading, listening, and watching!

Two More "Horror News Radio Extra" Podcasts Are Live: "Creepy" and "The Similars"

Podcast host extraordinaire Doc Rotten invited me to speak with him about more films from July's Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN) in South Korea, and I was more than happy to oblige. Both of the films I discuss, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Japanese thriller Creepy and Isaac Ezban's Mexican science-fiction chiller The Similars, are destined to be on my top 10 list of favorite films of the year. As usual, I keep everything as spoiler-free as possible. Enjoy!
