Ted Cantu and Hot Metro Finds Sets The Record Straight On The Killing Moon

Detroit, Michigan – Echo and the Bunnymen, Britains seminal post punk band, came to Detroit, Michigan recently and played to a sold out crowd at Saint Andrews Hall. The band was promoting their newest release, “Meteorites” which is taking the band into a more full and mature sound compared to earlier releases. Rock music enthusiast and publisher, Ted Cantu – the creator of Hot Metro Finds addresses comments made by local journalists. The subject of debate is a song that Echo and the Bunnymen released thirty years ago called, “The Killing Moon”.

The reports are saying that this particular song is what made the band big and great. There certainly is nothing wrong with that statement but it is inaccurate. Worse, a lot of lazy journalists have taken note of this odd bit of jumbled history and getting paid a salary to reprint it and quote from it. Hot Metro Finds spells out the rise of this particular track which comes from the 1984 album, “Ocean Rain” and points out some of the albums higher achievements including the use of a 35 man symphony ensemble. This orchestration was responsible for the tracks, “Silver”, and “Never Stop”.

The original album which, “The Killing Moon” came from had a collection of quirky songs with somewhat morbid lyrics. The track, “My Kingdom” offers to cut off someone’s nose and another song called, “Yo Yo Man” is talking about an icy cold tombstone. The album also kicks off another odd playing track called, “Thorn of Crowns” that takes the listener to a darkened corridor and then locks them inside. In contrast, “The Killing Moon” is the most radio friendly out of the entire album besides, “Silver” but it was hardly a hit song.

When Echo and the Bunnymen were on Korova records the band experienced very little radio airplay until the year of 1988, (after the self titled album on Sire records was released). “Hot Metro Finds was created to set the record straight and to keep low rent media writers from clogging up the webosphere with inaccurate information.  When newspaper writers are all quoting from the same inacurrate source it is time for someone to come up and fix it.”  Says site creator, Ted Cantu.

Right now the site is looking into the pop culture myths surrounding the 1986 Smiths concert in downtown Detroit.

Ted Cantu and Hot Metro Finds Covers Chicago Riot Fest 2014

Chicago, IL – One of the biggest rock music festivals of the year kicks off in Chicago on Sept. 12. This is a three day long festival thatis featuring the best acts in alternative music including The Cure, JanesAddiction, Weezer, Primus, Tegan and Sara, Cheap Trick, and many more. The days are going to be filled with live performances and will even feature some surprises like the return of the indie music legend Television. This festival comes just a few weeks after Lollapalooza in Grant Park. This is one city that has its eye focused on bringing in great music and also creating a solid experience for the fans.

Pop culture based website, Hot Metro Finds, will be there to check out the live performances and to take notes on up and coming bands. Right now the sites creator, Ted Cantu, is swapping notes with concert promoters for Riot Fest and even with some of the bands including The Buzzcocks and the Murder City Devils. The idea here is to immerse the site with real culturalexperiences that are authentic and real to the fans and telling true fact based media. A lot of the insight about what the concert is designed to do and how the participants interact with the fan base is important and is being done in real time.

“This type of inside real time reporting is great for the bands and its also great for the fans.” Says Ted Cantu. “The communication and cross promotion is happening without the involvement of uninformed journalists who typically report on road and school closings. They are exchanging inside information on record labels, producers and real experiences.”

Recently rock and roll fans have created strong social media communication with one another over the recent Queen and Adam Lambert concert. The tour originally started out as a 24 city North American tour including a stop in Michigan,(The Palace of Auburn Hills). The fans covered the bands recent tour in Japan and in Perth, Australia. They are exchanging fan art, band photos, and all of this is being handled without the influence of outside journalists who are often clueless about the history of the bands the fans love and cherish.
