on Steve Blush's Great New Compilation Album
NEW YORK CITY ROCK N ROLL
Author/DJ Steven Blush has compiled NEW YORK CITY ROCK N ROLL for Radical Records. The noted author of the book American Hardcore: A Tribal History, Blush is a prime mover in the scene he writes about and DJ's in. In the 80s, he promoted many hardcore tours and shows, DJ'd an influential college radio show, and ran a record label. Later, Blush published Seconds magazine and wrote for Paper, Spin, Interview, Village Voice, Details and High Times magazines.
Blush has been promoting/DJ'ing "Rock Candy" nights at NYC nightclub DON HILL's, and has been privy to a resurgence of real blood 'n guts Rock & Roll in the big apple. NEW YORK CITY ROCK N ROLL compiles 22 ass-kicking bands on 1 kick-ass CD. These bands represent the underbelly of NYC, a return to the Glam Punk, East Village, Downtown sound exemplified by the New York Dolls, Iggy Pop and bands that started out at Max's Kansas City.
According to author Blush: "This current New York City Rock N Roll scene blurs the line between trashy glam rock, righteous chick rock, and arty metal.".

Truth and Lies about
EVA CHAVELA from The DRIVE
1. Is it true that Eva is in NME?
Yes, Eva is in the issue with The Darkness on the cover, and is quoted inside.
2. Is it true that Eva has been on MTV lately?
Yes, I apologize for not telling you in advance, but she made a guest appearance
on MTV's "History of Hair." Gee, now why did they want HER for THAT? To tell this story:
"i was kicked out of freddieville high school in ohio when i
dyed it red & i had to wear a black wig to school, but then
the news did a story about it, and it was in the USA Today &
then the ACLU came & helped me & they had a town witch
trial meeting & after 2 months i was allowed to attend
school without wearing a stupid wig. SO DUMB." ~~ Eva Chavela
3. Is it true that Eva was seen making out with Saturday Night Live
newsdude Jimmy Fallon recently?
I'll let Eva answer this one in her own words:
"i only make out with rock stars lips its a fact however j fallon & i were only talkin
he was touching my hair cos its a point of interest...
i was making out with someone i remember but it wasnt him hahah.
yeaah that was fun. mmmm yes that was fun. but his name is SECRET i aint telling. "
