Shoreworld – Yawn Mower: Ruins Christmas

Ah, it’s almost that time again kids. Reindeer and tinsel, presents and last-minute shopping so stressful that it shaves years off our lives.

Shoreworld: Sonny Kenn – “Saturday Night at the Silhouette Lounge”

Sonny Kenn has been at the forefront of rock-and-roll since the 1960s. Kenn is credited with starting the rock scene here in New Jersey, and I can understand why. Even before the standard names register, Kenn was there first, tearing things up and leaving the locals starving for more. He …

Shoreworld: American Trappist – Amuse-Oreille, Vol. 1

Halloween is mere days away, and in that evil spirit I dig up an oddity from my dark and misguided youth. Horror…those black, velvety horror honeys that paraded around on late-night TV. You know, the ones where some scantily clad vixen would roll monster flicks like, Them, I Spit on
