Re: “Ass Pocket of Legacy

Re: “Git 'er done

When I heard they listenend to Merle and Willie I got pretty excited, then I listened to their cuts...bummer, sounds like another cookie cutter band turned out by the Nashville Country Music Machine that dictates what is on the radio. That's too bad. For some real country visit wayne the train hancock, the Hacienda Brothers, oh yeah and don't forget Deke Dickerson and the Echo Fonics. Don't be a slave to pop radio! Some great tunes out there, give em' a listen.

Re: “Tales of the New West

There has not been a band of musicians in Colorado Springs since Auto-No. There have been bands of hacks and egos with instruments, or a skinny punk or two thinking he plays Hendrix but doesn't even play Stevie who couldn't play Hendrix. There has been some talent and some gracious artists but Chuck and The No could play it real five nights a week, week after week. Alas, the Springs has always been kind of "Dumbtown" in a musical sense which explains the constant "No music scene" complaint I have heard since the late 1970's. You want a "scene"? Then pony up the dough for the good pickers and then shut the f*** up. Chuck played one of the best renditions of "Voodoo Chile" I have heard and I saw Hendrix play it too! Local DJ lady played Hendrix' version on radio once and announced it as "Voodoo Chili" from "Electric LandLady". Yeah, dumbtown alright... quick: what are the opening words to Positively Fourth Street? If you don't know then Dumbtown needs a mayor and a village idiot... Rock on Chuck, I'll stomp a mudhole in anybody's ass who says you ain't shit. That would make us both Happy Boys!

Re: “Rock of ages

I was stationed at Fort Carson, after returning from Vietnam via Walter Reed. It was July 68. We hung out in the park, where we sold pot, hash and acid. At night it was Kelker Junction and it seems like Alice Cooper was there, not sure. Then at Reed's Ranch I saw Quick Silver Messenger Service with the Steve Miller Band along with the best light show I had ever seen on the best acid I'd ever done ,Owsley" Purple Double Dots". At the City Auditorium I saw either the Vanilla Fudge or the Cream doing "Season of the Witch" on great hash which seemed very plentiful at that time.

Re: “Tales of the New West

It's just the title of the article. It's not comparing the band to The Beat Farmers.

Re: “Reverb

But once the Indy writes about the new basement venue, it will get shut down. Happened before.

Re: “Ignorance is bliss

Congrats to Paramore who have infused the airwaves with something new and edgy, especially "Ignorance", which touches on painfully difficult relationships and perhaps deeper social and political issues than the lyrics may suggest. I would bet that even Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck could relate, after all, their outlet is "ignorance by choice" as a tool and bloodsucking on the ignorant as recreation.

Re: “Reverb

Is anyone ever going to mention the Supersuckers playing at the Rocket Room this month?

Re: “In step with New Model Army

I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to finally seeing NMA live. Simply put, they are one of the best bands in the world that you may not have ever heard of :)

Re: “The Warm Inventions

While this interview does make mention of Jehovah's Witnesses, whether or not the followers of that religion qualify as a "cult" is not germane to this story. So we have deleted the comments related to that issue.

Re: “Crosby, Stills & Nash



Well Mr. Nash, Obama can actually only speak in sentences when they are in front of him on a teleprompter. If not, he uses so many "uh, uh's" he frankly comes across as an idiot. We were very disappointed in the concert at Red Rocks. Give it up boys. You are way past your prime.

Re: “Reverb

It should also be noted that you can pretty much stream every single Suburban Home Release on their website for FREE, before you buy it!!

Re: “Too punk to suck

Not sure about the comment that "back in the 80s and up through to today, Spot's production of Hüsker Dü's SST albums has been almost universally derided as lousy." Amazon customers all give "Zen Arcade" and "New Day Rising" either five stars (80%) or four stars (20%), which means both albums rate higher than Nirvana's "Nevermind."
