Nice details, I saw Atomic Mama and Finn Riggins rip it up at the Vera Project in Seattle but I don't know much about them beyond the sets I saw them play: http://virtualsoundnw.blogspot.com/2011/09/finn-riggins-atomic-mama-neighbors-and.html
“Hot Rod Lincoln” is a cover of country singer Johnny Bond’s 1960 hit, written by Charlie Ryan. On Rockaeology at http://bit.ly/g2HpCq Bill Kirchen says of his famous guitar riff, “I thought I pretty much nailed it exactly but I go back now and it wasn’t even close. But I like mine better and it was originality born of incompetence.” The Commander, George Frayne, says that he picked the song because “I couldn't sing a note really, but I could talk fast.”
This is a great article!
dudes! that's an old photo of megadeth. come on bw, where have you been the last 6-8 months?!! glen drover and james lomenzo (pictured above) are out, replaced by chris broderick and david ellefson. geeze! i'll try to keep you posted in the event of any lineup changes between now and the show date.
This is truly bad ass... hope to catch Wolvserpent soon. I'll bring my own skull and goblet. rawk!
Boise Rock School is still Rockin'
Thanks Ryan for letting us in and experiencing such talented kids.
It's in the sidebar, right under his picture and the twitter icon--Neurolux and Record Exchange.
Good article, BUT...you did Mr. Watt a major disservice by not mentioning WHERE he will be playing in Boise.
There were no acrobatics.
How horrific to think that one's music would be preferred to be listened to before going into battle/combat. I guess we don't go into 'peace' though, do we? Bleh.
Ummmm, I think you missed the godfathers of grunge Melvins playing at the Neurolux.
John did you read The Reisting Muse: popular music and social protest......and if so is it any good?
Now we need a concert like this for Harry Nilsson.
I havent been shopping there as long as many folks have, but my experience is one that will carry with me for a long time to come. Im old school in the respect that I expect service with my purchase. OBG offered that and more. They knew who I was when I came in. The last few years all the big gifts for my kids have come from there. OBG's gifts to the community will leave a huge hole when they are gone.
I'm bummed about a potential article that really is just a (lousy) book review. No mention of Poly Styrene from X-ray Spex, either, although they climbed the charts with an anti-consumeristic message. One can't hope for much with the small allottment of space and it makes me wonder why one choose to print it in the first place. It seemed like it would be great, as some women have outrocked guy bands multiple times, and have become very successful by their own accord. I doubt there is a correlation to economy and girl rockers, though. He ( Tim Cavanaugh) might be on to something, however, and that may be that girls(females) sometimes have to push a little harder, our minds and hormones act differently, and the effects of society can bond us strongly. It reflects in the music, and then in the fans. Sometimes, some girls are just better musicians and they have a message they want to convey, and they now have the opportunity to get it out. It's not to say that that doesn't happen to all guy bands, either, or mixed bands, but be in an all girl band, and you'll know about hormones and usually about women's suffrage. That's beside my point, however. I would love for the Weekly to do articles on women in the music scene in Boise. It seems that there are some awesome movers and shakers in this little city, and it would be cool for them to be recognized!
I am really looking forward to this, even though I know it's going to be hard to hear some of the things we will hear. When I hear about people suffering on TV I normally change the chanel. I'm tired of ignoring the evil in this World!!!
no one wants your running commentary. just do the interview and stop acting like a dipshit. the focus should be on the artist, not the interviewer. ask the right questions and get out of the way.
he is so sexy!(Danzig)
