Save Coney Island

Author: admin
Hi All,
For more years than many of us have been on this earth the Coney Island Boardwalk has existed, thrived, died and been reborn again. Well, the corporate machine in NYC is trying to kill it one last time by denying the renewal of nine leases of Mom n’ Pop stores, restaurants and venues on Coney’s boardwalk. Among these are Ruby’s, Cha Cha’s, Paul’s Daughter, Grill House, Gyro Corner, Shoot the Freak, Beer Island, Pio Pio Riko and Coney Island Souvenir Shop.

Many of you have played with your bands at on the boardwalk, at Cha’s Cha’s or Ruby’s and some just played in amusement park. Now it’s time to stand together and save the her history for our children and the child inside all of us who longs for fun in the sun on the Coney Island boardwalk. If we don’t stop this steam roller… pretty soon this will all be just be a memory.

Concert Review: The Vivisectors at Otto’s, NYC 3/26/10

“The band loves their dark, menacing chromatic riffs, doing them surf-style along with a couple of rockabillyish numbers, two bouncy go-go tunes and a song that sounded like either Blue Oyster Cult covering Link Wray, or Link Wray attempting a boogie.”

“They did a slow version of Misirlou that was as original – in both senses of the word – as the one that Magges does; their version of Pipeline was amped with a casually ferocious tremolo-picked jam on the second verse. But their originals were the best. Some wouldn’t have been out of place in early Black Sabbath if they’d been slower, others fluctuating eerily between minor and major. The band led by their US booking agent, Deb Noble of Blue Stingraye Productions, and her enthusiasm was contagious: hopefully the band will be back for another tour at some point.”
