To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.


Thank you for being a part of it.

Guess so.

As many of you know by now, John Paul Jones, Dave Grohl, and Josh Homme have formed a band called “Them Crooked Vultures”. Each of them has been hugely influential in rock music over the last 30 or so years. Just to show you how much each of these guys has done something that I value over the years, I’ve made a list.

Dave Grohl: aside from being in Nirvana (the reason I had long bleached blond hair for so many years), the song “Good Grief” off of the first Foo Fighters record is pretty much the reason why I play drums.

John Paul Jones: the other half of the greatest rock rhythm section ever, and an all around amazing musician and writer. Led Zeppelin is my favorite band and should be yours.

Josh Homme: there were three albums that taught me how to play drums, and “Songs for the Deaf” was one of them (yeah I’ve only been playing that long…..sorry America).

I’ve had Them Crooked Vultures’ self-titled record for about a month now and I’m pretty in love with it. Now, had they not ripped us off so hard on the artwork, I would tell you to go buy it. But they did. So as an artist with integrity, I can’t. Check it out:



Anyway……we have decided to ignore the obvious infringement and just let it go because we are nice guys, and I owe the members of Them Crooked Vultures so much. So what I’m recommending you do is to either buy it without the artwork, or pay Dave Grohl $9.99 to burn you a cd. Because without these guys, who knows what I would sound like with just ZZ Top and Billy Joel influencing me?

On second thought……..Eh fuck it, we’re gonna sue. They’ve got the money.

Our very own Joe Stroll will be traveling to Europe this December to play drums with our good friends from Belgium, Drive Like Maria. He’ll be accompanying DLM on tour dates that will take the merry gang of musicians from Amsterdam to Italy. Lucky bastard. Check out Drive Like Maria on Myspace –>

The States's razor-edged rock has the uncanny ability to evoke Radiohead-like dreamscapes, Zeppelin-inspired bombast, and an Orwellian political sensibility...often in the same song. Their forthcoming new album, produced by Chris Grainger (Wilco, Switchfoot), is both intimate and grandiose, at home equally in an echoing arena and in your own headphones.

The band's inventive songwriting has earned accolades from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize Winners) and the International Songwriting Contest (Winners), and it has been featured on VH1's "The Hills," ESPN's "Baseball Tonight," and MTV's "The Real World." Q104.3's Jonathan Clarke recently included The Tates in his list of the Top 10 New York bands.

Behind the music is an unconventional lineup: a Harvard-educated singer/guitarist (Chris Snyder), a punk/acid-jazz/prog-influenced drummer (Joe Stroll), and a sonic experimentalist bassist armed with an arsenal of fuzz pedels (Pete Connors).
