Nina Simone crooned "I wish I knew How it would feel to be free" from the airwaves of a progressive radio station. She was speaking in literal and figurative terms. Many were the restrictions in effect to curtail the freedom and liberty of many minorities until the 1970's and thereafter.

When Nina sang this song she spoke of the inability for some to enjoy specific theatres, restaurants, country club settings, shopping centers, swimming facilities, and other places of recreation. She also spoke of psychological, social, geographical, and emotional limitations to freedom placed on... Read More

Count Smokula is a 496-year-old undead Smokesylvanian musician and member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. He has appeared in a promo for America's Got Talent and also appeared on Who Wants to Be a Superhero. He has been featured on The Tom Green webcast and pictured in the USA Today. He regularly hosts burlesque events and he can write songs about people he just met. I asked him about all of these things and he responded in his thick Smokesylvanian accent.

What is Smokulism?

Smokulism is the voild vide faith as revealed unto The Count on the sleepless night of August 18, 1997,... Read More

Drive-By Truckers, joined by Spooner Oldham on Wurlitzer, took the stage at the House of Blues to some pretty healthy applause. They passed around a bottle of Jack Daniel's and then got down to business, launching the three-axe attack with "Lookout Mountain."

This is not a band that has a lot of wild antics onstage. They merely "get to gettin'" to quote the great Albert Collins. Patterson Hood (showing no ill effects of the laryngitis he said he woke up with) and Mike Cooley shared the vocals throughout the set. Shonna Tucker sang two of her songs: "I'm Sorry Huston" and "Home Field... Read More

In September, I interviewed Graffiti Blues. At that point, I had only heard the songs on their Myspace page. I hadn’t yet seen them live. Recently, I went to see the band perform for the first time at the Bull Bar in Long Beach.The Bull Bar, at the corner of 7th and Redondo, would be real easy to miss. It’s one of those fairly inconspicuous places and you could easily walk right by it. Even the website is fairly inconspicuous. It contains the logo of the bar, the address, phone number, and the slogan “Cold beer, good burgers.”Graffiti Blues went on around 10. One thing that immediately struck... Read More

With all the references material things, popular hip-hop can seem more like an ad campaign than a style of music. Orange County independent hip-hop artist wants to bring the social conscience back to hip-hop. What's the story behind the name Oddity? Out of my squadron of people, I was always the strange one, just a little different. My friend who I grew up with, Castor, he gave me the name. He used to call me odd. We started getting into music around sixteen, about ten years ago. It went from odd to Oddity. Plus, a lot of hip-hop is just bland and materialistic. Being different, separating... Read More

They are rock and roll bad boys, they make great music, do great live shows, say what they want and do what they will. They are serious about their music and hilariously funny and irrelevant about everything else. They gave up everything for this dream they are pursuing and they live by their motto, "Death or glory" They are Frost vocals, Holocolm ks.,guitar, Coatez bass, Sweeny guitar and Blanco drums. When I asked for an interview I made the mistake of starting my e-mail with "Hey Bangkok 5" First they set me straight so let me set everyone straight right now. It is "The Bangkok Five"...
