Doesn't matter who does it, 'Bald Headed Woman' is still a dog. The Sot Weed Factor just underscored that fact and made it even doggier. Let it serve as a warning to young and new bands: The Kinks and The Who only did it because they had no real choice, being green. naive and under the thumb of their producer, Shel Talmy .
Obama deported around the same amount that Trump is planning on and there's been a nary a peep about it from those that claim they care now.
Funny how "punk rock" is now the abusive alcoholic father that sired all the bastard children that this publication (and I might argue this writer) has loved so dearly as of yet. The fact that none of those vaunted institutions ever took real lessons supplied by "punk" to heart seems completely lost.
As for the "make punk great again" that too goes to the fact that there are lots of idiots running around now sputtering things they have no idea about. "Punk" never went away and never stopped producing great music, because the institutions/reasons for the anger never disappeared. Even if a majority of the public, and yes that includes people who claim to love "punk", aren't paying attention.
The next Pushing Buttons is December 3rd at The Flycatcher (not the 5th....oops. my bad)
Super dope picks! Dec. 5th is going down!!
This is a great young record store that lends itself to live gigs [local & out of town],it is not
some hipster joint where you would be embarrassed to ask for Elton John's "Madman...." lp or the 1st
E.W.&F. "Keep your head to the sky" lp.However,the folks working there know alot about new Genre's
i never heard of .They will find you an old "Rainer Ptacek" or a new "Katterwaul".Wooden Tooth has
kind,stand -up guys who own it and you won't go wrong stoppin' in.I been there...These stores are treasure for minds who crave music.
VIVA BANK NOTES!!
Couldn't agree more. Foxx Bodies. They're mesmerizing. The raw, simple emotion is striking in it's clarity and wry sarcastic humor. Bella is brilliant and the chemistry is deep. They make me feel silly and tragic at the same time. No, I'm not on drugs. lol
i think that even having studio's in this town again,is a real encouraging sighn that there are places of different attitudes and not just 1 and the rest follow suit/knock off's of the same parameters.There is always a revolving cast of the older fellas and a bunch of new cats that are ready& eager to make music they want to hear,to be important,.This project is real cool and bare naked songs.That has an audience that i hope buys it.Good luck to all involved.We are lucky to avoid alot of pretentious groups that wont even listen to a band in a bar or on record playing it's heart out giving up words,melody's that let your mind drift ,or make you feel a little less alone.Here's to you all and sales that might just make a part 2.-a fan
Periods and correct grammatical use of english,don't mean that it has passion or a story.
I'm very bad at that end of things but i'm not sure that is the game changer in rock n roll or writing about it.But i try to learn as i go ,spose that is good enuff for a note pad and a record.These days most musicians can't get near a publishing deal .now that is a shame.World wide shame.
"We like to dace on stage"...
"anyone's guess is as good as anyone else's"
"the chances aren't high that Mute Swan won't fade off"
"the fact remains that historically, the worldand when I say the world I mean Germany and France likes its Tucson music"
Really? Anyone's guess is as good as any one else's why the standards for what doesn't not get published by the Weekly here seems to be written by kid's whose chances aren't high that that they won't not pass 3rd grade English class.
i would have to disagree on the music that "makes it out of here" truth is very little really makes it out of anywhere cuz it is such a wide open game that have persistance and work ethic will travel.Rock and roll is a young mans game /always will be/It is anyones guess as to who and why folks sell a few records in europe .I think they appreciate songwriters more then in states. But Tucson is only helpe by media and the occasional breakthrough .Young cats like Gabe and Brian work real real hard to rise . But ya know the music industry confuses me and ive yet to see any spoils so to speak.more power to the young bands ,it is there game in the end.
I think the "music" that "influenced" Mr Gelb et al was more the yowling of feral cats in the alleys of Tucson and discombobulated street poetry of the bohemian wino than the awesome soundtracks of any western movies no matter what era
Hey, Joshua...a "50s Western" would be cowboy music, like Rex Allen and Roy Rogers. The music that may have "influenced" Gabe Sullivan and Howe Gelb and others is more likely the Ennio Moricone soundtracks of Sergio Leone's "spagheti westerns" of the late 60s-early 70s. The ones that did so well with Clint Eastwood.
"Frequently gigging". That means they play about 6 times a year for their friends.
I bought Sedlmayer's Charmed Life after reading his excellent remembrances of Neil Young's early recordings. Charmed Life is one great album. Not a throw away in the bunch.
She has always had that maturity and confidence when speaking, even in high school. This girl is the real deal! ❤️
Much love and support for you..I can't wait to see you in lights!!! Good job!!!
Great article and, by the way, your album is fantastic. Every song's a keeper. I urge everyone to get Billy's cd.
