Signal

Lyrics

Pink Floyd is a band you already know everything about. So, moving on.

Don Balch is the editor of the Echo Ink Review, a great little journal out of Kansas that publishes literary short fiction (including my short short story "Passenger Side" in their second issue) and critiques. Read what they've got and then send them something.

"Sergei Avdeyev": A story based on "Traveller In Time" by Uriah Heep, as suggested by musician Mike Conte of Early Man (28/100)

Lyrics

Uriah Heep is a rock band from the UK. If you've ever played D&D, you probably already knew that.

Mike Conte is the singer/guitarist for heavy metal band Early Man. His riffs eat mall kids for breakfast. His vocals are in the tradition of Mille Petroza and Tom Gabriel Fischer getting singing lessons from Geoff Tate and Michael Kiske (when they had balls). Early Man play metal the way it's meant to be played: fast and dangerous. Go to their website and order all their stuff, unless you're a pussy.

"Look At How Fast I Can Go Nowhere At All": A story based on "Life Passed Me By" by Super Stereo, as suggested by writer Monica Rodriguez (27/100)

Look At How Fast I Can Go Nowhere At All

AVAILABLE IN THE COLLECTION SHAKE AWAY THESE CONSTANT DAYS, AVAILABLE NOW THROUGH JERSEY DEVIL PRESS.

Lyrics

Super Stereo is a band from Tempe, Arizona. "Life Passed Me By" is perhaps the catchiest song I have ever hated. The girl in the music video is exceptionally adorable and the male lead singer in the band has really nice teeth.

Monica Rodriguez is from New Mexico, but currently living in New Jersey. She is the assistant editor and event director of Jersey Devil Press, along with her sweetheart, legendary badass Eirik Gumeny, whose name I can finally spell from memory. She is smaller than an elephant leg.
