Re: “Next of skin: Total Annihilation returns from the dead

Apul, do your research before you make a statement like that. If you don't know anything about the skinhead subculture then don't talk about it, you are clearly showing you ignorance on the subject.

Re: “Next of skin: Total Annihilation returns from the dead

asians can't be skinheads. what kind of confused person is the singer thinking he's a skinhead? at most he can be a bald headed punk rocker. non whites can't be skinheads.

Re: “From GWAR to eternity: Mobile Deathcamp takes out the thrash

Hard work is very important in any work to go from top to bottom.This is the result of their hard work that Todd Evans and his band members are successfully running this band.

The J. Miller Band is also still playing Acacia this Saturday! I am inspired by them.

Sounds like country music; someone singing about climbing barstool mountain.

Re: “Todd Snider trips the life fantastic

Been following Todd for over 10 years. My wife and I are in our mid 60's, non hippie or druggies, but just love his "life is too short not to have fun" attitude. We live in Florida near Tampa and have driven to Atlanta to see him, and lucked out and saw him in Colorado, while visiting sister-in-law. If in a funky mood, grab one of his cd's and stop taking everything so seriously, and poof, it's gone. Only thing I don't like about him is that he doesn't come to mid Florida, enough. Hope I didn't tick him off...........Nah...he would just shrug it off!

Re: “Todd Snider trips the life fantastic

The talent and amazing gift (curse). Todd Snider displays is beyond impressive....an amazing man...who just seems to be class and trash with ease. Of course , now I have to find Slacker and watch it. Local chamber of commerce doesn't like it? LOL

Re: “On Kanye collaborations, Cheap Dates, and fine cigar boxes

Cigar box is big enough to have it's on festival in Chicago (well at least one year worth of one), which Springs favorite, Kevin Incroyable (The Peculiar Pretzlemen) attended last year http://www.cigarboxnation.com/profiles/blo…

Re: “Pauline Oliveros' sounds and vision

Great interview, man. Really casual and informative. Oliveros is a towering figure, and you make it all approachable.

Re: “Backstage confidential

A familiarity with known musicians should be required but I have found this not to be true. Perhaps the same old story (30 years and still going) of "no music scene in the Springs" shall never change. Perhaps I am too old now and not a good demographic target, just a target.

Re: “David Bowie, Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer, Crime & the City Solution

Thanks, Gary. A true murder ballad must indeed have blood and malicious intent, or we cheapen the very meaning of words.... I usually count half of all lyrical music as murder ballad, but that's just my bad.

Re: “David Bowie, Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer, Crime & the City Solution

A couple of corrections to Loring Wirbel's description of "Child Ballads" by Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer. Only three of the seven songs exceed six minutes, two are under five minutes, and one is under four minutes. Though there are many deaths in them, it's a stretch to call them murder ballads. Four have no deaths and happy endings. One has a shipwreck. One has an execution. One has two suicidal drownings with an assist from a witch's curse.

Re: “Johnny Marr, Daniel Romano, Pissed Jeans

Hmm. I guess I need to delve a bit deeper into (I can see it a bit on The Messenger) Still I connect Television to a more "awkward" post-punk sound (mainly due to Verlaine's delivery) than I do this Johnny Marr album which I think is really "poppy" and easily accessible

Re: “Johnny Marr, Daniel Romano, Pissed Jeans

I honestly thought the guitars had a Lloyd-Verlaine quality in at least three tracks.

Re: “Johnny Marr, Daniel Romano, Pissed Jeans

I wouldn't file the new Johnny Marr anywhere near Television, not because Television isn't amazing, just that they sound nothing alike
