SEPTEMBER FEELS NEW Rita: Something about September always feels like the beginning of a year. Lolita: Maybe it’s because The Noise was first published in September, 1981. Rita: Maybe because it’s the beginning of another new school year. Lolita: Maybe it’s because The Beatles started their first recording session in September. Rita: Or maybe because these classic performers were all born in September: Freddie Mercury, Loudon Wainwright, Roger Waters, Buddy Holly, Chrissie Hynde, Patsy Cline, Billy Preston, Otis Redding, Joe Perry, Maria Muldaur, B.B. King, Hank … Read More >>

IT’S SUMMERTIME Lolita: Besides our country winning its independence from the Kingdom of Great Britan in 1776, a lot has happened in July that is part of modern music history. BRIAN JONES (The Rolling Stones) drowned in his swimming pool on July 3, 1969, and exactly two years later JIM MORRISON (The Doors) died of a heart attack.  But the month isn’t just filled with death (even if John Lennon’s mom died on July 15 and AMELIA EARHART disappeared over the Pacific on July 2)—look at the … Read More >>

SOME HISTORY OF JUNE Lolita: June is a month that is rich with history… PAUL McCARTNEY (The Beatles), BRIAN WILSON (The Beach Boys), and RAY DAVIES (The Kinks) were all born in the same week.  Senator ROBERT F. KENNEDY was fatally shot while celebrating his victory in the California primary for President of the United States in 1968. THE ROLLING STONES first toured the U.S. in June, 1964. On June 26 CHER divorced SONNY BONO and married GREG ALLMAN (Allman Brothers) four days later, only to divorce Greg nine days after that. June also celebrates … Read More >>

T Max: May is the Month of Music in New Zealand. In the U.K. it’s National Smile Month. In the U.S. it is Drinking Water Month and National Masturbation Month—I kid you not. In The Noise we always celebrate music, so this time we’ll focus on all of these other ideas too. Lolita: I don’t mind actively participating in most of these categories, but do we really have to do them in public? Rita: Yeah, Lolita and I are very private about some things—and … Read More >>

  T Max: April could not have come early enough this year. Now that spring has sprung there’s no looking back, and all I can see right now are bits of flesh that have been hidden for months. And speaking of showing flesh, may I introduce a pair of girls that are not shy about showing off their… Lolita: …Skill with words. Thank you T Max. Now we have a lot of serious work to do. Bye! We are in fact developing … Read More >>

T Max: Welcome to the March online-only edition of The Noise. You may wonder why this issue is online only—it’s because March is our month to show everyone how fantabulous our website is. Plus the print-issue distributors need a break at the end of the winter when all that gray snow takes up too much space and masks the beautiful, titillating spring that is right around the corner. I can almost smell it now. So without any further distractions, let me introduce to … Read More >>

T Max: Welcome to the Holiday Double Issue of The Noise. Check it out! Something has been on my mind lately… it’s clear to me that our musician readers have good reason to support our advertisers. Without advertisers, The Noise does not exist. So those businesses are indirectly responsible for musicians getting reviewed and featured. If you are a musician who has never advertised with The Noise but has been reviewed, you owe it to your musical karma to check out these businesses—go in and … Read More >>
