Live: Sarah Jarosz 10/29/2010 at Mercury Lounge, NYC

Sarah Jarosz casually strolled up upon the low-lit stage at NYC's Mecury Lounge last Friday night, among a collection of stringed instruments and amplifiers. She slung her banjo over her shoulder to the welcoming applause of fans, admirers, and as she later gratefully acknowledged, her dear friends in attendance. In that instant, the room proved the perfect setting to allow Ms. Jarosz to take… Continue

New massages from an old media guy. Or maybe old massages. Or just therapy.

Back when I had a punk rock/folk art/west coast cartoon surrealist art gallery, and AOL was new and groovy, I spent some time in an alternative rock folder. My intent was to see if attending to the conversation in this folder would help me to determine which posters featuring which new bands I should buy.



Instead, I found myself in a pointless discussion about Nirvana with somebody who was, memory says, a sophomore at Wayne State University. I had been a working music… Continue

The Mad Tea Party - Rock ‘n’ Roll Ghoul (Whose That, 2010)



Just in time for Halloween, Asheville’s Mad Tea Party (not to be confused with some other teabaggers that’ve recently been in the news) unleashes this four-song EP of horror-themed rock ‘n’ roll. The title track sounds as if the Fugs returned from… Continue

Rearview Mirrors CD Release Party!

We're off and runnin' again this weekend. Down to Winter Garden last night to play with Jason Thomas, our extremely talented pal and bandmate as his schedule allows.

The Jim Sullivan Story



We've been obsessed with this record for the past couple years. It's a brilliant album and a fascinating story.



In March 1975, an American singer-songwriter named Jim Sullivan mysteriously disappeared outside Santa Rosa, New Mexico. His VW bug was found abandoned, his motel room untouched. Some think he got lost in the desert. Some think he fell foul of a local family with alleged mafia ties. Some think he was abducted by aliens. By coincidence – or perhaps… Continue

She Listened To The Beatles, I Listened To Uncle Tupelo. It Was A Mixed Marriage

My ex wife and I met on the Prodigy music boards back in 1993. She asked me a question about John Wesley Harding that she already knew the answer to in hopes of striking up a conversation. I answered it wrong three times. Twenty five cents a message got kind of pricey. She suggested an "internet account". I was working at the NPR station of my alma mater, The University Of Missouri-Kansas City. Apparently I could go to the computer department and get one of these internet accounts. The… Continue

what "wrecking ball" meant and means

Lately I have been spending time listening to Wrecking Ball, the 1995 cd by Emmylou Harris. I had been a fan of hers from the Gram Parsons albums, and can remember buying the Pieces of the Sky album, which still has a purity and clarity that is not diminished in any way. In contrast, Wrecking Ball was something of a transition; it was an foray into electronic rock music, with the producer Daniel Lanois (U2), and for that reason it must have been a risk (I recall seeing her… Continue

London Bridge is Falling Down...

Wow, what a night! We loaded into London Bridge Studio at 3pm on Sunday to showcase at the Annivers-a-Birthday-Music Showcase-Mustache Party! It was a knockout. There were three other bands showcasing, all with stellar talent! It was not only a great party, but an excellent networking opportunity for people in the music industry. From producers to managers to Scott Mercado, there were plenty of shoulders to bump into while at the party. We were also honored to provide the kegs of beer to ensure… Continue

Can Hardy Wait

I have heard Mike Farris several times in Nashville and I cannot get enough of his remarkable voice. His album, Salvation In Lights, is a true gem. I listen to it every time that I need to nourish my soul. I am looking forward to hearing the new EP.

"Hands" by Dave Holland and Pepe Habichuela - a flamenco jazz summit



Hands



Dave Holland and Pepe Habichuela



Review by Douglas Heselgrave




Pairing of legendary British jazz bassist and Spanish guitar virtuoso is unexpectedly better than the sum of its parts



Dave Holland has spent much of his career standing in the shadow of giants. If you’ve spent any time listening to Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Coleman Hawkins, Chick Corea or John McLaughlin over… Continue

Under-appreciated, but not by me

Wrote this in answer to a ND friend's inquery, but worth sharing perhaps:



Top three current singer-songwriters I don't think get their due: A.A. Bondy, who might top the list; soulful, beautiful Antje Duvekot; and master guitarist with a keen, original wit, Peter Mulvey. Bob Schneider is another one who shoots quiet arrows to the heart, if I get a bonus pick.



I can't get enough of Todd Snider or Hayes Carll either, but they are thankfully not under-appreciated these days!… Continue

Terrell's Tune-Up Halloween Treats for the Ears

A version of this was published in The Santa Fe New Mexican

October 29, 2010



In the weeks preceding Halloween, the average American, according to statistics I just made up, will hear “The Monster Mash” by Bobby “Boris” Pickett 17.3 times.



That novelty hit from 1962 (trivia note: Leon Russell played piano on the record) seems omnipresent, but it’s hardly the only tacky rock ’n’ roll monster song. They’re everywhere — full of shrieks, wolf howls,… Continue

There's Something Happening Here...

Great article about the Bridge show and Buffalo Springfield. Didn't realize ND was rumbling' until my man Spencer showed me the north star. I am so happy to know you guys are out there and covering such a wide bandwidth of great music. Old 97s, Drive-by Truckers, Uncle Tupelo, Golden Smog, etc. Just saw Neil at the Paramount in Seattle. Shakey has carved it down to the bone and revealed the source code. Thanks again.

"Dolly Ain't Been The Same Since She Left Ol Porter"

The first piece of wisdom I picked up from my grandfather. A wiry little man from the Ozark hills, his radio always seemed to be playing Conway Twitty, George Jones, Dolly and Porter, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Little Jimmy Dickens, Marty Robbins, Merle Haggard, etc. Saturday nights were reserved for "Hee Haw" and Buck and Roy pickin and grinnin. I used to think that my interest in country music began at the age of 16 when I worked at McDonalds and heard the cool older guys playing the… Continue
