“Big Brother”

Posted by Cindy on 30th April 2007


Untitled #46, 72×60 “, mixed media on canvas – by Terrell Moore

My hero, Jeffrey Liles, will set off with the Warped Tour this coming summer. ‘Bout that same time, Contraband Music Group will reissue Anti-Social Butterfly with, hopefully, this bonus track remix “The Spores vs Cottonmouth – Big Brother.” This cut was originally released by The Spores on their Imagine the Future album.

I can’t wait. This little jewel will offer artistic beauty inside and out – Terrell Moore’s work will grace the album cover, as will the photography of John Holbrook. Muy, muy bueno…

“Big Brother Remix” The Spores vs Cottonmouth, Texas

The Spores – “Big Brother”

The interview includes tracks from Decadent Dub Team (“Makin’ Funky Money”) and Cottonmouth, Texas (“Life Support”)

Sampler

Posted by Cindy on 30th April 2007

Good morning. Been in San Antone all weekend moving stuff. I hate moving stuff. I arrived home to find this divine piece sitting on my desk. My girl-child went to Hal’s show on Friday night. She fell madly in love with him, just as I did many years ago. She also really enjoyed getting to know Scrap Iron – raved about both of those lovely men for a solid 10 minutes. Hal sent her home with this masterpiece. It’ll grace my walls eternally.

Ya know, Hal Samples is a photographer extraordinaire and he is for hire. So if’n youse guys are wanting some rock star photos or even pictures of your young’un’s, Hal’s your man.

“…From the Lights of the Prison Tonight”

Posted by Cindy on 26th April 2007

I know I do a lot of Thrift Store Cowboys gushin’. What can I say? I love me some Thrift Store Cowboys with a passion. Seriously. TSC is one of my all-time favorite bands. Ever.

They’s in Dallas tonight kids. Go.

With open, haunting music reminiscent of the desolate west Texas sky, Lubbock based Thrift Store Cowboys have captivated audiences from coast to coast with their dark, subtle lyrics and a blending of soaring violin draped against bottom-ended guitar and pedal steel sounds that spaghetti Western composer Ennio Morricone might envy. Following in the unique footsteps of a Lubbock legacy started by Buddy Holly, The Flatlanders, and Terry Allen, Thrift Store Cowboys add their own modern influences and flavor to the already rich musical heritage.

Plenty of Texas opps to hit a TSC show:

Thursday, April 26th
Poor David’s Pub
Thrift Store Cowboys
Doors at 8 PM

Friday, April 27th
Tavern in the Gruene

New to Tune

Posted by Cindy on 26th April 2007

My beloved Hunter Hauk spills on a new Web stream outta my beloved Denton, run by my beloved Alex Maples outta my beloved Secret Headquarters, and goes by the name of KDRC. Spinnage will be heavily laden with Denton bands. Sweet.

They’s goin’ the Shoutcast way, aaaah memories of my old live/streaming days, and thus far, I can’t make the dang thing work. However, Hunter says that Alex says that “there might be some server and bandwidth issues for a while.”

Okay, I’ll wait…

Loose Change a film by Dylan Avery
Hosted by: Reid Robinson / EZ Eddie D / Sista Whitenoise
Special Guest Speaker: Jim Marrs (author of Crossfire & The Terror Conspiracy)
7 PM

Excerpt taken from the Loose Change Website:

The central premise of Loose Change is that the United States Government was, at the very least, criminally negligent in allowing the attacks of September 11th, 2001 to occur.

However, when one looks deeper into the evidence, one might come to the startling conclusion that our own government might have been directly responsible for the attacks themselves.

Loose Change merely scratches the surface of information that points to a massive government cover-up regarding 9/11. We highly encourage you to take it upon yourself to research the events of 9/11 for yourself and come to your own conclusions.

Rolling By…

Posted by Cindy on 23rd April 2007

I didn’t do squat musically this past weekend. I painted a wall, watched the best teevee in the world, turned the usual 4-hour trip into a leisurely 7 hour stroll from San Antonio to Dallas yesterday. I hit a flea market, a handful of antique malls, and came across a cool little joint just a mere few miles from the new digs.

I spotted a few banners while speeding down I-35 just off of 1604, and one of ‘em said “Seth Walker Live.” Since Seth Walker is a big-time fave, I had to do the exit/swing-around thing to see what was what.

“Restless” by Seth Walker

From the highway, it just looked like raw land. A little closer up, it looked like a golf course. Pull into the lot, you’ll see a gate that takes you to the Rolling Oaks Sports Bar & Grill…with the golf course laid out before it. Lots of good stuff goin’ on at Rolling Oaks, including…

Thursdays
Texas Music Series
Bands and artists such as Bart Crow, Casey Donahew, Jamie Richards, Full Throttle, Doug Moreland, Honeybrowne, Travis Mitchell, Matt Martindale, perform at this series
Enjoy $1 (12oz) Shiner draft/$6 Pitchers all night long! Thursdays are “FREE” concerts w/ a can food donation to the SA Food Bank, $3 w/out.

Fridays
Live Texas Blues
Featuring bands and artists such as Seth Walker, Carolyn Wonderland, W.C. Clark, and more performing.
Enjoy $3 pints/$11 pitchers of Warsteiner Dunkel & Pilsner all night long. $7 cover

Saturdays
Live Texas Music
Featuring the best in Texas artists and bands including Ray Wylie Hubbard, Adam Hood, Ryan Turner, Darren Kozelsky, Jason Eady, Sidehill Gougers and more
Drink Specials and Cover varies

They’s havin’ one helluva shindig this weekend:

Saturday, April 28th
Inaugural Young Guns Rising Shrimp Fest at “The Oaks”
16 artists, peel-n-eat shrimp, cold beer, raffles, contests, ALL DAY FUN

Rolling Oaks also serves up some tasty vittles and boasts the coldest beer in the county.

Check it out next time you are in the Alamo City – and…um…call me…

============================================

Completely off topic question. What the hell is with all the broken, dirty old soda-pop bottles for sale all along I-35? Seriously, every single antique mall and/or store I entered yesterday was chock full of ‘em. And not a one priced less than $15.00. Fifteen bucks for an old broken pop bottle? Hell, I’m in the wrong bidness.

Obviously there is a market for them, but I just can’t see myself entertaining TFG’s clients, and showing them my divine broken-up-dirty-Coke bottle collection. “Look at the glass!” “Isn’t it cracked and dirty!?!” “I only paid $40.00 for it!”

Banger? I Don’t Even Know ‘er

Posted by Cindy on 23rd April 2007

A long, long, long time ago, before I started my first blog (TexasGigs.com), before I even knew what a “blog” meant, a dear friend of mine ran a really great Americana music site called Rockzilla.net. My friend, Michael Johnson, gathered some durn fine writers from around the country and they reviewed Texas Country, alt.Country, Americana albums and live shows…and it ’twas glorious.

[ED. Note: You can still read the Rockzilla Archives by simply clicking here.]

One band Rockzilla turned me on to was The Hangdogs. I fell in love at first listen. Although the band was based in New York at the time, they were most definitely honorary Texans. KHYI 95.3 The Range spun their tunes on a regular basis, and they gigged DdFW a few times a year.

Head dude, lead vocals, songwriter Matthew “Banger” Grimm also penned a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ he called the Hangdoggerel in which he spewed his disdain for certain politics, war, and the dumbasses of the world, and the Hangdoggerel quickly became my #1 read. Matthew is not only a gifted writer, he’s one of the funniest and wittiest mo’fo’s I’ve ever met. Somewhere along the way we became friends, and friends tend to keep up wit’ each other. So the news of The Hangdogs hangin’ up their collars (heh) brought great sorrow. Banger had to move to Iowa to tend to some elderly parents, and that, as they say, was that.

Fortunately Matthew kept writing, giggin’ and finally pulled together another motley crew who now make up Matthew Grimm & the Red Smear...

Blazing out of the Midwest like somebody sabotaged their van, Matthew Grimm and the Red Smear are the most blacklisted band in Iowa. Foolishly flaunting the First Amendment, the Smear plays the rock & roll music the kids love liberally peppered with obscenity, salacious innuendo and treasonous invective that has more recently proven utter and immutable truth versus dissembling propaganda of the Assholes In Charge. Matthew Grimm & the Red Smear are the enemies of all things good, pure and proper, as is in full evidence at their actual website REDSMEAR.COM, along with FREE DOWNLOADS, UNABASHED LEFTIST RANTING AND REASONED DISCOURSE WITH THOSE WHO SEND US HATE MAIL.

Former frontman of the famously obscure NYC roots rock “legends,” The Hangdogs, Grimm has returned to his native Iowa, where he spends his spare nights seeding his ultimate legacy as a filthy-mouthed, prophetic barroom sage and counseling young people on their “relationships.” His first post-Hangdogs record, Dawn’s Early Apocalypse, helmed by the multi-platinum producer Pete Anderson (Dwight Yoakam, Michelle Shocked, The Mavericks) and Pete Lubin, is a fistful of dynamite-packed powerpop and punky rootspop songs featuring the work of a stellar lineup of LA musicians, including Anderson, bassist Teenage Rob Douglas (Chuck Prophet), drummer Josh Day, keyboardist Mike Murphy, guitarist Charlton Pettus (Tears for Fears) and the vocal talents of Dusty Wakeman (Yoakam) and Doug Pettibone (Lucinda Williams), as well as Iowa Smear guitarist Jason Berge.

How’s that? My point? Ah yes, my point. Banger and the Red Smear are on their way to Texas…

So there’s this guy, Phil Lee, and he’s producing a 10-Year Anniversary Documentary DVD following the 10-years of an extreme FineLineFave, Spot. He’s already posted a bit here and there, including “Moon June Spoon” live at the Wreck Room last month. It’s lookin’ pretty freakin’ sweet, so I’m going to place my order today.

If you’n's a Spot fanatic, then you might drop Phil a line with memories, photos, live recordings and/or whatnot and maybe he’ll use it in the documentary…and maybe not…but…maybe.

I’ll keep you posted as to how things continue to unfold…be excited…I sure as hell am…

Ted Nugent, Meet Billy Joe Shaver…

Posted by Cindy on 23rd April 2007

I dunno when it happened, but the KHYI message board is all a-flurry about classic rock station 92.5 KZPS changin’ to Texas country. A little jaunt over to the (not yet fully launched) website resulted in this tidbit…

Lone Star 92.5 is as unique as the great state of Texas itself.

A one of a kind amalgamation of Outlaw Country, Classic Rock and Alternative Country, Lone Star was born right here in Texas – made for Texans.

This is no cookie cutter radio format.

No yappy DJ’s or silly contests, and did you notice that there are NO long commercial break interruptions?

This fact is one that we are very proud of and one that you’ll find to be pretty damn cool.

From Shotgun Willie to Dusty, Frank and Billy.

This ain’t radio…it’s Lone Star.

So I guess it’s sorta like the old KZPS + KHYI – commercials = Lone Star 92.5. A little more from themownselves….

…Musically we are like no other station out there AND we have broken the mold on radio commercials by having sponsors who allow us to bring you No long commerical breaks.

The generosity of our sponsors helps make Lone Star possible. By supporting our sponsors, you are supporting Lone Star.

The sponsors listed are AT&T, Southwest Airlines and Coors Light. You can check it out for yourselves – Listen Online. So far I’ve heard ZZ Top, Neil Young, Bad Company, Reckless Kelly and right now, Micky & the Motorcars.

Oh yeah, and in even bigger news, Redbeard (Q102 fame) is back and will be stirrin’ thangs up over at Lone Star 92.5…suuuuuweeeet…
