North Jersey Notes: True Will, Psychoprism, Ryder, and more!

TRUE WILL—Hightstown, NJ

If you’re going to play punk, you have to play it right! Yes, the beauty of punk rock is that it doesn’t have to be perfect, but there is a way to play punk, and I think the boys from True Will might have found the right …

North Jersey Notes: Tokyo Motor Fist, Chino Marin, Full Scale Riot, and More

TOKYO MOTOR FIST—Ringwood, NJ

I’ve known Steve Brown from Trixter for many years. I’ve known him when he was doing the Trixter thing, when did the 30 Ft. Ringo and Throwan Rocks thing, when he did the cover thing, when he put the Trixter thing back together (my band played …

A BOY NAMED JOHN—Parsippany, NJ

I stumbled upon this hidden gem out of Parsippany, NJ who I am loving at the moment. I have to say that I really liked what I heard of this band so far. The name of the band is A Boy Named John, which …

RYDER—Queens, NY

I came across this really cool rock band out of Queens, NY, who really have this nostalgic sound to them whether they realize it or not. The name of the band is Ryder, and I came across them through an online search for a band to feature …

North Jersey Notes: Killcode, Weapon of Anew, Resurge, and more

A couple of weekends ago, my bros from Killcode released a teaser for their upcoming video for their song “Kicking and Screaming.” The video seemed to be a compilation of live footage from the boys as they rocked festivals in Mexico and South America with Twisted Sister. I have to …

ANOTHER DAY DAWNS—Lehighton, PA

North Jersey Notes: Retrofeelya, Skid Row, MoTHER, and more!

RETROFEELYA—Poughkeepsie, NY

Yes, I featured a band from upstate New York last week, but another band has piqued my interest from up that way. This is a band that I’ve heard a lot about, but never really had a chance to give them a listen until today. The name of …

Joe Mansman and The Midnight Revival Band—Glens Falls, NY

I came across a very cool band out of Glens Falls, NY, of all places. Yes, it’s quite a bit north of North Jersey, but when North Jersey isn’t producing the best music possible, sometimes I have to venture outside my …

WEAPONS OF ANEW—New York City

There’s a brand new band on the scene that has really piqued my interest. They piqued my interest because the band features two of my former bandmates, former Spread Eagle and Hostel Inc. frontman Ray West and my former Smoke Star drummer and former Audio …

North Jersey Notes: ELI, The Compulsions, Killcode, and more

ELI—Parsippany, NJ

There’s a trio out of Parsippany that I’ve been keeping my eye on because they’re the first local band that I’ve ever heard of to have the balls to put out a double record. The name of the band is ELI and in 2015, they released the CDs …
