    Chuck’s first band Ass Ponys are also pretty good. However, Wussy sounds great especially live.

    I became enlightened to this one by a shipmate during my Coast Guard days in the early 80's and it's stuck with me right up to the moment of this post. They had a few others I heard that were almost "B52-ish" (never one of my favorite bands) but this one stood out to me as something completely different.

    Terre Roche is no Maggie Roche. But, she ain't no chopped liver, either. Imagine all this talent, crammed into one family for a lifetime...we've been so fortunate...

    Never forget the first time I met this guy, showing up on a rainy evening at a barely-attended bar in Minneapolis. Every year before the convention, me and my buds would scour the free paper, looking for unexpected events like this.

    He built that...thing. He strums that thing. He drums that thing. He samples, and triggers patterns made with that thing. He bows that thing. He plays "bass" with that thing. And, as you can see...when he's got that thing...you don't need anything else.


    Nobody else has a thing like that.

    This the sort of dude who would set up on the street outside where they shoot America's Got Talent, and just say, "Yeah, I'll be out here when you're too bored in there...".

    This track is just so well made and beautiful. Dated keyboards and all.

    Picked this up on holiday in Cape Town at the time. I somehow think if he was American or British, he might have been massive. Won the equivalent of 'Album of the Year' in his native South Africa or some similar award.

    One of the three big hits from the album, oddly no music video despite being on Sony; "Something We Started" by Arno Carstens from Another Universe circa 2003/2004

    Saw That 1 Guy open for Buckethead back in 2006. Pretty amazing. Good to see he's still at it.

    Wonderful band that got lost during the alternative boom. If I had a label, I’d re-press their LP’s in a heartbeat

    The Jay Five was a german Beat Band, they released a few records and one as the backing of Bill Ramsey. The whole album is great. I had a friend back in the seventies whose father had it. Never saw that record again.

    The band is the Pinebox Dwellers. That’s Sean Clark and Uncle Dave Griffin, founder of the Gram Parsons Guitar Pull in Waycross, GA. They wrote this together and it’s easily my favorite song in the world as of today. They are also (Including Ingram, Dave’s son) the nicest guys I’ve ever met in the music business, that includes Jason Ringenberg, Warner Hodges, Jeff Johnson and Dan McClain.
