Rogue Wave Perform an Amazing Version of "Shake The Disease" on KCRW

Absolutely one of my favorite Depeche Mode songs is "Shake The Disease" and the Rogue Wave cover on KCRW was nothing short of stellar.  Watch it below.


New Rogue Wave Video (Feat. Bob Odenkirk) - "Chicago X 12"

One day Lindsay and Scott will arm wrestle to settle their ongoing Who Is The Bigger Mr. Show Nutcase feud they didn't know they were in until just now. Until they go over the top, though, one point goes to Lindsay for not only posting Rogue Wave's video for the previously loved "Chicago X 12" -- featuring Bob Odenkirk as a clueless director -- but also for spotting the trend and appending more music videos starring Bob and/or Dave as clueless directors. This includes the likes of YLT's "Sugarcube" and Superchunk's "Watery Hands" (but disqualifies the New Pornos' "Use It" and the Strokes' "Juicebox"). In the Rogue Wave clip, Bob is a misheard lyric specialist with a predilection for The Karate Kid. Not sure there's more you need to hear than that. Go watch at Videogum, it's a cute clip and a fun video spread. I saw the shit out of it! - Source

Rogue Wave - Rogue Wave

Rogue WaveSometimes losing your job is a good thing. You can refocus your energy, do some soul searching and figure out what you really want in life.

Back in 2002, San Francisco resident Zach Rogue lost his job and decided it was time to make a change. He bought a one-way ticket to New York City, leaving the Bay Area and his old band, Desoto Reds, far behind. His initial intention was to record just a couple songs "in an effort to exorcise his demons both artistically and personally," but instead he ended up recording most of what would become Rogue Wave's debut album, Out of the Shadow.
