Bloody Social at Drac studios

Rock n Roll my friends,
Having a great time recording a new young band called Bloody Social at my studio named after my late great Black Lab Drac. These guys are from New York and Rock there asses off. Really excited about their music And hope you will be too. We are recording a 3 song demo to go get them a deal. Jamie Burke is the singer and reminds me of a cross between Axl, Ian Astbury and Morrison, Great voice and presence. Guitarist Jamie Biden has the old school retro sensibilities with a modern flair. Bassist Jimmy is an animal who attacks the bass and drummer Drew is cool like most drummers are. HAHA with great feel and swing. They are all open and easy to work. I am at The helm producing and engineering and working with me is long time friend Mark Jordon. Thanks Mark They will go far watch out for them. If anyone is in the LA area they are playing 11pm at The Viper Room the 17th of April
Rock on

Matt n Ace visit the Crazy Pig

Hey Everybody,
Been in London for a few days. Played Brixton Academy two nights and play down in Brighton today. It has been fun, really love London. We love going shopping here. Ace loves all the designers, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen. We cruised down to a place called the Crazy Pig yesterday. It is an amazing jewelry shop that has been around forever. The guy that runs it was the original guy at a place called Great frog where I met him in the late eighties. I went to the shop with the late great Randy Castillo and Zakk Wilde who were in Ozzy's band at the time. I was playing in The Cult and living in London in an area called Swiss Cottage and Ozzy was at my hotel. We got into all shorts of trouble together mainly alot of drinking and rock n roll craziness. Anyway Randy always had the coolest jewelry , Skull rings and awesome wallet chains etc. Crazy pig did the original Keith Richards skull and his bracelet as well. also Ozzy, Ian Astbury, James Hettfeld etc. So in picked up a skull ring for myself and a smaller matching one for Ace. I have had a couple in my lifetime and lost them. This one is marked lucky number 7 inside. A limited edition yearly. So if you skull fans,Keith fans this is the original If you're in London stop by. Its at 38 Short's Garden, Covent Garden area. Also dont forget when you're in LA come by SorumNoce 85681/4 Melrose We have my line of cloths as well as jewelry and photography.
have Fun, Matt
