Blue Oyster Cult will be part of VH1 Classic's 4th Annual "All Roads Lead To The Chip" on Saturday, September 2.
The bikers come every year, a half-million strong, to Sturgis, South Dakota for the world's largest annual motorcycle rally. And every year, the bikers ride 10 miles down the highway to "The Chip" -- The Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground to see and hear some of the greatest bands in rock and roll ever perform live. This year, VH1 Classic commemorates the 25th anniversary of "The Chip" with the two-hour special "All Roads Lead To The Chip" hosted by Dee Snider on Saturday, September 2 at 8:00 PM ET/PT.

The bastards at Mediacom altered my cable package, so I won't be able to watch it. Hope anyone else who wants to can enjoy it.

Seeing that no one has posted here in almost a year, I figured, "what the hell?"

Today on Boing Boing, Cory Doctorow posted an entry about a guy that makes LPs into glass frames. Check out the album that the glasses in the photo are resting on: Look familiar?

Kick out the Jams, Brothers and Sisters! [15 Aug 2005|09:29pm]

My my my, it's been a while since anyone has posted here.

BÖC is going to be at the State Theatre in Falls Church Virginia on the 23rd of September, and my buddy Tom is going to pick up tix. He's right down the street from there. My other buddy and I will down a couple of pints at Four Courts to get ready 2 rock, and then head over.

This will be good.

Hello [11 Jul 2005|07:41pm]

Hi, I'm Ashley, I just joined! I'm a relatively recent BÖC fan, steadily becoming more rabid as I listen to more of their stuff.

I actually got into them from hearing Metallica's cover of "Astronomy," finding the original, and learning that it's about eighty billion times better than the cover (it's been my all-time favorite song ever since). Soon after that I found a BÖC greatest hits album, and that officially hooked me. I love every single song on that CD!

So far I've gotten Secret Treaties, Agents of Fortune, and Spectres on vinyl -- my favorite of them is definitely ST (naturally, the speakers on my record player had to go and die on me, so I can't listen to any of them anymore). Plus, I got to see the band about a month ago at a concert outside Detroit, and that was really fun! I'd love to see them again this summer... {crosses fingers}

So yeah, there's my little intro. If anybody wants to recommend some really good songs that I might not have heard of yet, I'd love to hear your suggestions!

Oh, and to show just how out of my generation I am... I bought a 1984 concert shirt off eBay, and it's as old as I am. ^_~

How About A Little Blue Öyster Cult Trivia?? [23 Jun 2005|07:37pm]

johnbuckliny
OK, I have 5 minutes to kill here @ work before the server finishes updating, so here goes. Seeing that there are only a dozen members of this community, the only request I make is if you're gonna answer any of the following "somewhat easy" BÖC trivia questions, replace 'em with some of your own.

Question 1: In the studio verion of Godzilla, what is the English translation of the Japanese warning in the middle of the song?

Answer:
"Attention. Attention. Godzilla is entering the Ginza area. Evacuate immediately. Evacuate immediately!"


Question 2: In the song 'The Revenge Of Vera Gemini', who says the following spoken word introduction: "You're boned like a saint -- With the consciousness of a snake"?

Extra Credit: What BÖC band member dated her for a while? Who did our 'Vera Gemini' guest end up marrying? What other 3 BÖC songs did our mystery poet co-write with the band?

Answers:
a. Patti Smith b. Allen Lanier c. Fred Sonic Smith of the proto punk band MC5 - Fuck Hudsons! d. 'Career of Evil' ¤ 'Fire of Unknown Origin' ¤'Shooting Shark'



Question 3: We all know John Carpenter used 'Don't Fear The Reaper' in Halloween. Who, pray tell, introduced BÖC's rare promo only CD-single with the following words: "Imaginos, performed by Blue Oyster Cult: A bedtime story for the children of the damned...From a dream world paralleling our earth in time and space, the invisible ones have sent an agent who will dream the dream of history. With limitless power he becomes the greatest actor of the 19th Century. Taking on many disguises he places himself at pivotal junctures in history. Continually altering its course & testing our ability to respond to the challenge of evil. His name is Imaginos"?

Extra Credit: What it is name of this rare CD single & what album is it from?

Answer:
Steven King - Horror novelist, NH radio station owner and devout BÖC fan. The song he introduces is the remake of 'Astronomy' from the "Blue Öyster Cult In Name Only" rock opera 'Imaginos'


Small aside: Seeing that it'll never again be commercially released, if anyone wants me to email them a 128Kbps mp3 file of the song, just ask.
