Don Jamieson Releasing New Comedy Album “Communication Breakdown”

On April 21st, former “That Metal Show” host and comedian Don Jamieson will release his new comedy album, “Communication Breakdown,” via Metal Blade Records. Recorded at The Funny Stop in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, the album’s title and cover come from Don’s Rutgers University senior yearbook photo.

Don explains: “My young nieces and nephews found the photo at my mom’s house and starting texting me how funny it was, and when I saw it again after so many years, I agreed! I majored in communication, so it was just a matter of adding the ‘Breakdown’ to it, which is obviously something you never want to happen in comedy.”

He goes on to say, “This album has tons of jokes but really revolves around 4 or 5 longer stories, which is something I’ve never really done before. I usually just like shot gunning jokes like beers at a frat party, but this time around I tried something a little different. It took a while to develop them for the stage but am really happy with the way they turned out, particularly the track ‘Kiefer,’ which is a true story about a crazy night with the ’24’ actor. Other than that, there’s a little bit of something for everyone on this disc, and I hope people who buy or steal it enjoy it as much as I do.”

About Galactic Cowboys:
“Ga-lac-tic (g-lak’tik), adj. 1. Of or obtained from milk.
Cow-boy (kou’boi’), n. A ranch worker who rides horseback on his job of herding cattle.” -Webster’s New World Dictionary

There was a sonic ripple (sort of near Katy…but not really) in the otherwise peaceful universe of Houston, Texas. A quartet of dashing young men took the stage claiming to be the Houston Astros. Unbeknownst to them, that name had already been taken. So, they settled for the logical “next best thing” the Galactic Cowboys.

In 1990, they signed with DGC (Geffen) and released two critically acclaimed CD’s, Galactic Cowboys self-title (1991) , and Space In Your Face (1993). In 1995, the band moved to Metal Blade Records and recorded Machine Fish (1996) followed by the EP, Feel The Rage, also released in 1996 (which included covers by Paul McCartney’s Wings and Kiss). The Horse That Bud Bought (1997), At The End Of The Day (1998), and Let it Go (2000) followed.

Blacktop Mojo Posts “Burn The Ships” Title Track

Blacktop Mojo just dropped the second and title single in anticipation of the March 10th, 2017 LP release “Burn The Ships.” Listen in below. Blacktop Mojo also comments:

“We all quit our jobs at about the same time to make this record and play as much as possible — that was our all in, no going back moment. It reminded me of a story we heard from the 1500s about a Spanish explorer that sailed to conquer a territory.

“Once they landed on the beach, he burned all the ships so all his men knew one thing was clear, there’s no going back. That’s what that song is about, and that’s the story of our lives at the point of the record being created.”
