Trump, they can “Norm Coleman” you, too.  The time to fight is now.  The time to take to the streets and show the Democrats that they will face civil unrest heretofore unseen by them and if necessary, to carry out acts of civil disobedience.  If Antifa and Black Lives Matter can do it, so can we.

Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra released their next studio album, “From Out of Nowhere” on November 01, 2019.  Jeff Lynne performs most of the instruments with Richard Tandy adding additional flavor.  Critics reviewed the album favorably and fans were excited that the group was back in some semblance of being.  Say what you will, bands that began back in the late 1960s or early 1970s and then broke up and reformed are never as exciting as they were in their heyday but hey!  Lifelong fans tend to revel when ANY newer music appears which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whomever else you do for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this one simple maxim: anything from the bands of the 1960s or 1970s beats any of this anemic he-she crap modern-day bands foist on us.  Period.
