the Hot 17 feature on Happy Chichester

August 6, 2013

Some local musicians become so familiar that we almost forget what an extraordinary talent they are for a minute; that they are forever evolving during our own distracted pursuit to get everything done. Happy Chichester played in the punk/funk group the R.C. Mob for ten years, was a founding member of The Twilight Singers with […]

A Word on DUI and the State of the Union

October 2, 2010

I’d love to live in a city where I could hit the subway or train 24/7. DUIs are fundraisers for the state, right? Anyone know where those funds are applied? Is this for real? (Source: HPD officer’s pay tops $172,000 (Houston Chronicle, 4/23/2006): “Houston Police Officers Make Big Money on DUI Each drunk driving arrest puts […]

Music Abuse and MGMT

April 9, 2010

Do you buy records and play them over and over and over again waiting for them to grab you because you know it’s eventually going to grow on you? For some of my favorite bands, it seems like the more they grow as artists, the longer it takes for new stuff to grab me. It’s […]

The Wildbirds at The Summit Columbus, Ohio January 9, 2010

February 6, 2010

Their lead singer has […]

Soundarden Reunion?

January 24, 2010

I had the unfortunate experience of receiving an advance promo copy of a record called “Ten” by some Seattle band called Pearl Jam about what seems like must have been at least 6 or 7 months before the record really broke. There were at least 1 or 2 notable songs that showed some promise. There […]

Vampire Weekend

January 13, 2010

I had no idea that the band who burst on the scene with “Life in a Northern Town” in 1985 were recording, again. Have I been living in a cave, or what?  “Whore Chatter”, finds them gaining fresh ground nearly 25 years later, innervating an entirely new audience, stunned upon their rebirth. This gets my early vote for comeback of the […]

Phat Rock and Roll for Heavy Times

January 5, 2010

It just doesn’t get any better than beer and friends and rock and roll.  I have plenty of friends and beer that I am endlessly grateful for, but, I sure could use some more rock and roll.  I hope to post many interviews with rock bands along with a photo or a link to photos of […]
