Scrapple from the Apple" is a bebop composition by Charlie Parker written in 1947, commonly recognized today as a jazz standard, written in F major. The song borrows its chord progression from "Honeysuckle Rose", a common practice for Parker, as he based many of his successful tunes over already well-known chord changes. While the A section is based on "Honeysuckle Rose", the B section or "middle eight" comes from the rhythm changes, which are based on George Gershwin's "I Got Rhythm".
Last week we went to see Korn headline Brixton O2 Academy in London and play their debut self-titled album in its entirety. Before the show we sat down with Head and Fieldy to talk about the impact of the album and what it’s like revisiting an album they wrote over 20 years ago. They reveal that they hadn’t played the emotional closer Daddy since 1994⁄5 and it’s still hard for Jonathan to play live. Fieldy also notes how weird the band were back in the ‘90s and just how much of an influence the album had on bigger bands like Slipknot.
The TV Album is a compilation CD of songs by "Weird Al" Yankovic that features songs about television and TV shows. Yankovic's former record label, Scotti Brothers, released a similar album called The Food Album that contained songs about food. The album was released by Scotti Brothers Records and was only begrudgingly approved by Yankovic.
Korn is considered one of the biggest rock bands of the '90s and one of the best hard rock bands of all time. Formed in 1993 in Bakersfield, California, Korn burst onto the scene in 1994 with their self-titled debut which contained "Blind" and "Need To," but the band didn't attain mass appeal until they released Life Is Peachy (1996) and Follow the Leader (1998)
Korn's cathartic alternative metal sound positioned the group among the most popular and provocative to emerge during the post-grunge era of the late '90s. The band began their existence as the Bakersfield, California-based metal band LAPD, which included guitarists James "Munky" Shaffer and Brian . .They recorded their demo, Neidermayer's Mind, in 1993 with producer Ross Robinson (Deftones, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot), who would go on to be one of the most sought-after rock producers of the late '90s and early aughts. After signing to Epic's Immortal imprint, they issued their debut self-titled album in late 1994. With a relentless tour schedule that included stints opening for Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Marilyn Manson, and 311, the record slowly but steadily rose in the charts, eventually going gold on the back of hit single "Blind.
3. On paper, when Korn recorded Follow the Leader, they were in Hollywood's NRG studio for three months, six days a week. In reality, the band only worked on the album for half of that time. He was doing this weird method acting shit and I was just like, 'I did that and it was cool, but I'm past this shit with you, Ross. I don't need to have you put your fucking nails in my back and make me hurt to feel the pain. For his part, Robinson claims that it was Korn's nonstop partying that got in the way of his relationship with the band.
