    Headbangers Book Club: Morris Day’s On Time (Part 1)

    It’s a special #jhericurljune installment of the ol’ Book Club as we dig into 2019’s On Time: A Princely Life in Funk by Morris Day with David Ritz–so, slightly less headbanging than normal, but don’t worry, there’s plenty of the important stuff (i.e., cocaine).

  • Jheri Curl June: Nile Rodgers’ “Let’s Go Out Tonight”

    Jheri Curl June: Nile Rodgers’ “Let’s Go Out Tonight”

    Even if it isn’t quite orthodox Jheri Curl, how could I refuse myself the opportunity to share this absolutely bonkers video, which features Rodgers (wearing some kind of futuristic Cosby sweater) bringing a Japanese Bunraku marionette to life, taking her out on a date, and then seemingly turning into a marionette himself?

  • Jheri Curl June: Krystol’s “Passion from a Woman”

    Jheri Curl June: Krystol’s “Passion from a Woman”

    We enter our annual Ladies’ Week with exactly what this year’s Jheri Curl June needs: some Passion from a Woman. Krystol is one of those groups that, despite having plenty of talent and hitmaking potential, never achieved widespread fame. Their first two albums failed to gain much commercial success, despite being chock full of bangers…

  • Jheri Curl June: Madonna’s “Lucky Star”
