    What do I know about… Southern Rock

    Jul 26 • Americana, Rant • 1100 Views

    My the first encounter with Southern Rock fans was Knebworth in ’76. REO Speedwagon fans throwing bottles of piss at Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Now I know that these beery REO fans just looked like the scruffy bedenimed lazy-arses who listened to Freebird on their 8-tracks. Continue Reading

    Jul 26 • Americana, Featured • 1288 Views

    If I’m going to write this blog I have to start somewhere and it might as well be in the back of a beat up Thunderbird throwing up dust along some Indiana highway, the Fork White River down there somewhere. Continue Reading

    Bitchin’ Camaro

    Jun 27 • Motovatin' • 1150 Views

    Now if there’s one thing I’ll never get is American college humor.

    In the years I spent on campus in Manchester, England, I came across one or two wasters and scoundrels beside myself but not whole houses full. In the US being a frathouse asshole is an art in itself. Continue Reading

    Iggy’s Lust for Life

    May 2 • Americana, Featured • 2186 Views

    I fell for Iggy Pop not because of his music, but because of a photograph. 

    Let me explain.

    As a kid I loved the glam rock stylings of David Bowie and specifically a larger than life theatrical character Bowie created called Ziggy Stardust.  Continue Reading

    The Cramps – Poison Ivy’s Rockin’ Sound.

    Feb 2 • Americana • 2046 Views

    The first I heard of The Cramps was on late night radio.

    The DJ on some fading pirate station was playing a massive reverb filled swamp punk number called Under The Wire, a paean to dirty phone calls. It was simultaneously subversive and hilarious. Continue Reading

    Appreciating Richard Hawley’s Cole’s Corner

    Jan 2 • British • 1133 Views

    My grandma Lily loved those velvet voices.

    Visits to gran’s house were so often soundtracked by her favorite crooners from the late 50s. Nat King Cole, Harry Belafonte, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra were the cornerstones of her musical appreciation and of course this rubbed off on my mother who carried the torch (song) into the sixties with her own Roy Orbison and Shirley Bassey LPs.

    Written October 27th 2013

    I learned, just now, that Lou died today.

    I never met him or even saw him perform. But in so many small ways he made my life bigger and brighter and sharper and more inspirational. Continue Reading
