So wondering what all the graying geezer hipster musicians in Akron & Kent are always yammering about when the "good ol' days" of the 1970s and early 80s come up?
Well, besides the ability for a band to work 3-five nights a week in different venues, there was plenty of good, innovative rock music happening in the basements and on the stages of the Akron/Kent/Cleveland scene.
Well, England's Soul Jazz Records has just released a new compilation called
PUNK 45: Burn Rubber City Burn!
Akron, Ohio : Punk And The Decline Of The Mid West 1975 - 80
that features early singles from Akron/Kent stalwars including Devo, The Waitresses, Tin Huey, Rubber City Rebels, Hammer Dammage, Chi Pig and more!
Check it out at SOUL JAZZ RECORDS!

That's right after a stadium tour Kenny Chesney is "downsizing" back to teeny-tiny arenas. Anybody else notice that male country stars seem to be the only artist not named The Rolling Stones that still regularly tour stadiums?)
Sure, One Direction has a stadium tour coming up this summer, also but given the nature of their boy-band fame and audience, there's a pretty good chance that the upcoming tour will be One Direction's last big shake of the money tree before their audience moves on to the next batch of cute boys.
Anyway, Kenny Chesney rockin' stadiums from the digital desk of "Da Q."
