A band, that wrote one of the hymns of my youth is The Offspring. I don't know how often I listened to 'Self Esteem' and its iconic beginning. The songs had been played so often when we kids went out on the baseball field for circling the bases. That was in the '90s. In the... Continue Reading →

In days with a world that's thrown out of kilter, bands like Slime are like musical call for action. Although commercially more successful than in the '80s and in general more mature than in the early days, the band is still authentic, stick to their mindset and is never tired of holding up a mirror to society.
