Just realized local faves the Reckless Hearts are on tour, if you’re in Atlanta, Chapel Hill, Virginia Beach, DC, or Brooklyn, check ’em out, and tell Ian we said hi. Debut album, “Get Up And Run” on Off The Hip records is out now!
Vespanomics is in motion for the Vespa Experiment, in which three singer-songwriters are in the midst of a Vespa tour of California nightclubs and coffee bars. A solid idea, everyone loves acoustic folk peppered with pseudo-environmental PiaggioUSA talking points, until you hear raging bullshit like (take it away, Paolo!): “If the 69% of Americans who […]
Vespa Lexington covers some upcoming Vespa promotions and advertising, including Pandora radio stations.
Ah, 1994. Back then I was going out to see bands three nights a week and spending $50 at the record store every night. I didn’t have a scooter yet, but I noticed the mod revival revival revival going on in Engerland and that (among other things) probably had some effect on my scanning the […]
“Public Enemy” “welcome to the terrordome” rap song lyrics
This might be the most scooterific video ever, and would you believe it’s a country song? Check out the new video from BR-549 frontman Chuck Mead: “I Wish It Was Friday,” featuring a Honda Cub, Vespas new and old, Genuine Buddys*, and more, plus lots of footage from East Side Scooters in Nashville. As far […]
Some sweet Lambretta Series III footage in the new Mates of State video for “Get Better.” Somewhere out there, there’s a Chrysler K-car site that’s really excited about this video, too. (There’s a higher-quality video at Barsuk’s site.)
Chicago’s best Karaoke, Berryoke, is doing a benefit tonight at Frank and Mary’s for Patrick O’Dea’s nephew who was seriously injured in a auto/bicycle incident. If you’ve always loved karaoke but hated the music selection, check it out, the Berrys have everything good. Sorry for the late notice, I always put off posting local events […]
We posted Chuck Mead’s great new video a few days ago, but it’s since been pulled from YouTube, The same YouTube link appears on Chuck’s MySpace page, so that’s strange, but being a big-shot music video director myself, I’m aware things don’t always happen the way you’d like, ha. So we’ll get that re-linked ASAP, […]
Cute Vespa P-series-laden video for The Cute Lepers’ “So Screwed Up.” Nice work. Dude’s clearly got a Sting/Quadrophenia fetish, and I heart the ‘stache and the mildly-attractive chicks that aren’t trying too hard, which is way better than hot chicks that are trying too hard. (Thanks for the link, Steve!)
Poor Black Lungs guy. First zombies, now this. If Quadrophenia filtered the ’60s through the ’70s, this video filters the ’60s through the ’70s through the ’80s through the ’90s on a Canadian indie-label budget. Can you believe there are people so young they think of Rancid as “old-school?” Nice (though repetitive) footage, though, and […]
Damon on a Lammy in 1994. Click the images for super-hi-res readable scans. I can kill hours a day at that site. LOVE it.
Tonight I planned to post the Cold Weather Challenge sign-up page and unveil some new stuff for sale at Scootmoto. Tonight I ended up botching a WordPress upgrade, then locked myself out of the 2SB admin page, completely destroyed the site, and took three hours to fix it. I think it’s almost back to normal […]
Meet Salford’s own Wispa electric scooter. Moz prefers the real thing. Everyone knows there’s only one way to ride around Salford:
DID YOU KNOW: Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal of Tears for Fears started out in a Bath, England Mod Band called Graduate? You learn something every day. This discovery was inspired by the new “Literal Video” for “Head Over Heels,” which I was hoping was the Go-Go’s, but TFF will do: It’s great, but not […]
