However you may have arrived here, this is the old Not Not Silly Newsroom.

It's a long story -- hardly worth going into here -- but after this place was declared a Brownfield Site, we abandoned it for the NEW! IMPROVED!! Not Now Silly Newsroom.

Feel free to stay and read what you came here to read, but when it's time to leave go to the new place by clicking HERE.

Musical Interlude ► Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band

The greatest LP of the entire Rock era was released 45 years ago today. The Beatles masterpiece was a revelation, a concept album with a gatefold cover (already done by Frank Zappa, tho'), cool cut-outs, and the lyrics printed right on the back cover!!!

I listened to it over and over again when it was brand new, just like all my friends. Every listen seemed to bring something new to the ears.

There have been many interpretations over the years, including a recent Cheap Trick Sgt. Pepper performed completely live. However, the best interpretation is one I have already spoken about in these pages. Here's Easy Star All-Stars performing the entire LP as "Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band" with many special guest stars.

As always...CRANK IT UP!!!
