****7/14/19: JUST ADDED: My annual concert report and photos from the Five Emprees' latest reunion show, hot off the press, as the saying goes.
AND: "Hit 'Em Again, Ron" -- my tribute to the late Stooges guitarist, Ron Asheton, recorded live on 6/24/19, on the Spoken Word Tracks page.
AND: The latest reviews and related activities surrounding We Are The Clash, which continues to draw interest from surprising quarters -- have a look below, and see for yourself!
PLUS: My appearances at Write Nite (South Bend, MI, 3/21/19), plus The Box Factory For The Arts (St. Joseph, MI, 2/26/19), plus a joint one with Lisa D. Quinlan ("Ideas Of Success"/Goofing Off" (Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, St. Joseph, MI, 3/24/19). Been a busy month!
PLUS: A live medley of the Civil Rights era hymn of resistance, "We Shall Overcome," plus "People Have The Power" (Patti Smith), and an instrumental bridge that should sound vaguely familiar.
AND: Part II of my writeup on White Summer's latest annual reunion show at Hidden Pointe, Benton Harbor...as promised.
PLUS: A 1:50 (in other words, nearly two hour) audio clip from Philadelphia, PA (7/10/18), where Mark Andersen and I appeared at Brickbat Books for our book, WE ARE THE CLASH: REAGAN, THATCHER & THE LAST STAND OF A BAND THAT MATTERED...plus, our pre-event interview with Joseph Gervasi, for Loud Fast Philly...over on the Spoken Word Tracks page. Our 60-minute clip from Politics & Prose (Washington, DC, 7/06/18) is there, too.
COMING SOON: My impressions of the MC50 show, Grand Rapids style. Plus: my chat with Michael Zadoorian, author of BEAUTIFUL MUSIC.
AND: The annual birthday EP for my wife: BUDGIE IS A GOTH, four home recorded tracks, over on Featured Songs, to join its companions, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANYWAY, and HAPPY 46TH, LITTLE BUDGIE). Get 'em while they're hot, as they say.
DELETED (FOR NOW): HAPPY TRAILS (LITTLE BUDGIE IS 47)...because I only have so much space. It'll return at some point, I'm sure. :-)
Comment capability's back for now, but stay on topic. If not...I'm taking the toys away again! :-) In the meantime: stay cool. ****
