Tuesday Party Tune!

Well, after all that hard rock and roll last week, I thought I'd tone it down a bit for today.

Must Be Time For A Party Tune

I don't know about you, but I need a little energy today.

Fu Manchu is probably the best thing to come out of the SoCal desert.  There were several other great desert rock bands from the same era, but Fu Manchu is the only one (that I'm aware of) that is still kicking ass.

Also, how many bands have a video in which they travel back in time (in a Delorean, no less) in order to rock?

Tuesday Party Tune - High Five!

I can't think of anything in this video not to like. I want one of those sequined blazers. I would totally ride in that. All the glam, all the time. I'll take that clear bass too.

And, of course, the song itself is good.

So I hope you'll dig this.

Tuesday Party Tune Mk. 3

How has it been a week since last Tuesday already?

Whatever, time to stir things up again.  I feel almost silly posting this particular song, because I can't imagine a biker that doesn't already love it.  And the more I think about it, the more I suspect that a biker that doesn't like Motörhead is probably not to be trusted.

That said, I imagine y'all would be disappointed if I didn't post it.  So, here you go.

Tuesday Party Tune, 2nd Edition

Yeah. Andrew W.K. is all right in my book.  But then, I personally follow the simple teachings of the great sages Bill & Ted: Be excellent to each other, and, party on, dudes.  Andrew W.K. is an artist who simply encourages that exact behavior and, well, I have a hard time finding fault with his message.

Especially since he writes party tunes almost exclusively.

I'm pretty sure we all know this song. That said, it's Tuesday, so we all need this song.

Erik Buell Has Been Busy

Erik Buell Racing recently announced their sexy new streetbike, the 1190RX, which appears to be made of pure bad-ass mixed with a lot of raw power.*  But apparently while that bike was brewing, he was also busy collaborating with Hero Motorcycles on a streetfighter-styled bike: the Hero Hastur.

Now, depending on which particular work of fiction you're looking at, Hastur is a, "fallen angel and a Duke of Hell" (Good Omens), "the unspeakable one", (Cthulu Mythos) or... a benign god of shepherds.  

I'm assuming that they're invoking the god of shepherds, based on the visuals in the ad embedded below.

Did that say "shepherd" to you too?

I'll be interested to see if this bike comes to the United States.  Apparently, EBR is going to start distributing 4 models of Hero Motorcycles (not the Hastur, apparently) in the U.S. later this year.

*And it comes in red.
