While Seattle might currently be a hotbed for Kids and Family Music, with The Not-Its!, Caspar Babypants, Johnny Bregar, The Board of Education, The Harmonica Pocket, and Recess Monkey being recognized as "The Kindiependent Collective," I can't help but think that it was nearly 21 years ago already that Cameron Crowe's SINGLES came out, rockin' a killer soundtrack that represented a harsher side of Seattle, featuring (among others), ALICE IN CHAINS, who also made an appearance in the film. Now, here I am a parent, and LULLABY VERSIONS OF ALICE IN CHAINS is being released, transforming songs like "Would?" into nursery-friendly jams for the youngest rockers on the planet. The crew at Roma Music Group hit The Rock Father with the full details on their upcoming release, due on August 27th as part of their Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star series. Check out the lullaby version of "Man in the Box" below, along with the clever cover art and tracklisting. Pre-Orders just went live on iTunes, and if you grab it now, the track will be yours immediately!
The crew over at Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star have had a busy summer, and they're showing no signs that they'll "Stop!" anytime soon. Just-announced is LULLABY VERSIONS OF JANE'S ADDICTION, slated for release on August 20th and up for pre-order on iTunes right now. Those wishing to introduce their little babies to the music of Perry Farrell and the gang via nursery-friendly reworkings of the band's biggest hits and fan favorites can get their pre-orders in now to receive "Been Caught Stealing" as an instant download. And, the folks from Roma Music Group hit The Rock Father with a preview tonight, along with the full tracklisting and cover art. Check 'em out!
It was twenty years ago this year that KORN first came together in Bakersfield, California. When their self-titled debut first hit stores in late 1994, I was hooked - so when the chance to see the band live for the first time arose in 1995, I jumped at the chance, attending a show in Davenport, Iowa, at which Korn appeared on a bill that included MEGADETH, FLOTSAM & JETSAM, and FEAR FACTORY (who I'd later end up working for). With KORN soon to release their eleventh studio album, THE PARADIGM SHIFT on October 1st, now it's time for even the youngest members of the family to get in on the action... thanks to the crew at Roma Music Group and their Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star line. Tonight they've announced LULLABY VERSIONS OF KORN for an August 13 release date, and they hit The Rock Father with the full details. Check out the tracklisting and cover art below, alongside a preview of "Coming Undone," which, if you head over to iTunes now, you can get as a instant download with a Pre-Order.
"You Let Me Violate You... You Let Me Desecrate You..." I never really thought of it this way before, but those words could describe being pooped on... or peed on, something I've experienced numerous times in my four-year career as The Rock Father. Actually, there's nothing quite like being woken up in the middle of the night surrounded by an ocean of pee (I hear there's some German videos where people really dig that) from a three-year-old that managed to sneak into the bed undetected and let loose. Alas, the crew at Roma Music Group has announced LULLABY VERSIONS OF NINE INCH NAILS for a July 30 release date, and today they've launched pre-orders. If you snag it on iTunes, you'll get "Closer" right away... and hey! You can stream the track below...
The crew over at Roma Music Group are busy breaking out the nursery-friendly jams this summer, and the next band announced for lullaby action is none-other-than SMASHING PUMPKINS. On July 23, Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star will release LULLABY VERSIONS OF SMASHING PUMPKINS, an all-new collection of 12 fan favorites and FLEETWOOD MAC's "Landslide," reworked into "lush instrumental versions" perfect for your baby's nursery. They sent over a preview of "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" today, along with news that iTunes pre-orders are live. Those who pre-order now, will receive the track immediately.
With their LULLABY VERSIONS OF SLIPKNOT arriving at digital retailers today (grab it on iTunes), the crew over at Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star continues their Summer of Rock with LULLABY VERSIONS OF TOOL scheduled for release on July 16. Pre-orders just went live on iTunes, and those that get their order in now will receive an immediate download of "Sober," which can also be streamed below... right here on The Rock Father. It sounds haunting... perfect for your baby's nursery, or for kicking back while sipping a glass of Maynard James Keenan's Wine and just chilling out.
