Kill The Alarm

December 9, 2011

North Jersey Notes: Aurin, Blue Food, Voodoo Terror Tribe and BlackOcean

AURIN—Northern NJ
With this week’s band, I did something a little different. I was on Twitter when I noticed a Sarah Anderson had started following me. I didn’t know who she was, so I took a look at her profile and it turned out she was the lead singer of …

Shoreworld: Mike Chick’s New Album

Mike Chick: Hello Mountain

Grand Alto was a band that graced the Shoreworld pages more than once. Featuring dark, tongue-in-cheek compositions, the band used killer chops to make their climb to the top of the Jersey heap before mysteriously calling it a day.

Rising from the ashes of that trio …

SANITARIUS—Staten Island, NY

Shoreworld: Bob Polding and Peter Myers

Pete Myers: Jigsaw Monet

The old saying, “You can’t keep a good man down” was custom written for this Manasquan, New Jersey, artist. Peter Myers is a songwriter with so much background history that I’m always shocked that writers don’t talk about him on a regular basis.

Myers’ professional songwriting …

Shoreworld: Scarlet Carson – ‘Foreverless’

There seems to be fewer bands that utilize antics and theatrical mayhem. To be honest, when I go see a rock band and they all kind of mope around like emotionally troubled vampires staring at their Sketchers, it doesn’t do shit for me. The fastest way to disconnect from an …

Shoreworld: Double Breasted, Mike Montrey and Remembering Don Hill

Double Breasted – Head To Toe In Holiday Sparkle

Yeah, I know, when I first heard about this band I pictured some Jenna Jameson, twin-fronted cover band that specializes in songs like “Black Velvet” and “Get This Party Started,” but I’m happy to say that I was way off base. …
