Ah, The Show Went On! (Show Recap)

Hey Soul Mates,
It's after noon and I'm just now getting around to writing. Time flies.

The show last night was a success. After some initial issues with the sound at the Good Hurt, RHS started rocking. We began the show with a dedication to Rosa Parks, without whom (and countless civil rights activists) our band might not exist. Our opening song was, appropriately, Love Someone. We hadn't played that song in a while. The set included Majestic Rejection, a 50's style waltz-time ballad, which had also been absent. Rush Hour Soul was decked out! Doug sported a tie for the first few numbers; Bry had his black on black suit working; and yours truly was in bright orange and black. Happy Halloween! Oh, I did my strip tease to Isaac Hayes' Walk On By. Doug supplied the beat, I supplied the fuzz guitar vocal.


We had a nice crowd for a Tuesday night. I think that's the latest start time we've had for ages. Thanks to everyone who attended. You did a marvelous job of singing along on several occasions. Heck, I hardly have to open my mouth on Done Lost My Mind. That's a beautiful thing.

Here's the setlist:
Love Someone
Fall Out
Everything My Heart Desires

Sucka
U Had The $
Majestic Rejection
A Talent For Loving
Bad Penny Blues/Gold Digger
Done Lost My Mind
Everyone's Ingenue

In other news, we continue to do well on
Next Big Hit. Don't forget to register to vote for us. We do have competition for the title of Next Big Hit. They podcast from NYC. Nice to get that Manhattan love. We are going to be submitting another song to them. Which should it be? Done Lost My Mind or Everyone's Ingenue? That's a nice dilemma to have.

We are also going to be added to the
Great American Music Hour podcast and broadcast next week. Did I say both pod & broad, yup. They are an FM station (WRIR 97.3) based out of Richmond, VA. So, our fans in the area can actually tune in. I will keep you posted on the progress. We don't know yet which song they have chosen to play, so that's kind of exciting.

Special thanks to the fans who have left personal reviews of the EP on CDBaby. The songs will be on iTunes and the like shortly. Keep those iPods warm and save some space for us!

Finally, we have a new logo that you will see all over our website. It's our icon for popping from page to page. Hope you enjoy it. It will be featured on the postcard flyers for our show at the Gig on Nov. 10. That's our next show, so mark your calendars. I's gone be a barn-burner, y'awl!
So here's what the icon looks like:

They should be available as spinners on the '07 models.

Time to get to the dry cleaners. Last night we were the hardest sweating band in show business. Don't forget to listen to the music. And say a prayer for those in need. Love you, Gmom.

Love, Power, Peace

Murderous Haircut of the Mayor of Bel Air - Book Review

“The Murderous Haircut of the Mayor of Bel Air” is a trippy new mystery novel from Phillip Mottaz. It captures the grit and gilt of the City of Angels with the flair of a contemporary Raymond Chandler. The brisk pace and wit are reminiscent of Douglas Adams’s entries in the detective game. Flourishes of  Fletch  and “Medium” also spring to mind. However, Mottaz has added a psychic/mutant/superhuman touch and his own comedic voice, structure and internal monologues to the proceedings that help the author announce his own style and the arrival of a literary heroine for a new generation. Hairstylist and budding private investigator, Danica Luman is the perfect character to convey the irony, angst and sarcasm needed to tell a 21st century L.A. crime story. Danica also represents anyone who thought it would be neat to get tangled up in a mystery and the darkly comic cautionary tale that follows. The genre is recognizable, but Mottaz offers a fresh take on the not-ready-for-prime-time-hard-b

Well, I Left My Jag In Kansas City

Hey Soul Mates, that's one of my all-time favorite movie lines. On occasion in real life, I've been able to say it. That bit of dialogue is from Silver Streak . My buddy Mike told me to say something about Richard Pryor . That man was funny. How about that? I always looked forward to going to his movies as a kid: Bustin' Loose, Wholly Moses!, Brewster's Millions, The Toy and See No Evil, Hear No Evil . Plus, if you got to see his latest movie, you were "cool." We'd watch the rest on TV: Car Wash, Bingo Long, Greased Lightning and The Wiz to name a few [I know one of Bryan's all-time faves is Moving ]. Just last month, I caught his big scene in Uptown Saturday Night on BET. These are not necessarily classics, but Mr. Pryor's performances were all enjoyable and there was a feeling of rebellion in watching him work. As a kid, it was like you were given a peek into the absurd, adult world through his humor. He was showing us how messed up Ameri

Lord Huron - Long Lost (Review)

Lord Huron - Long Lost  Republic, 2021 Released on Whispering Pines Records & Tapes, Lord Huron’s new LP Long Lost is a Fabulist & Western concept album. The band has traditionally tapped into the spirit of Hank Williams, Springsteen and Roy Orbison with lovelorn, operatic flair. Ghosts are never too far, either, and Lord Huron have never been ‘fraid of them or reverb. They have added to their usual cinematic repertoire by way of interludes jarring and organic, spoken word introductions (maybe label founder Tubbs Tarbell?) and reprises, enhanced by headphone listening. The result is an experience that sounds like a vintage radio show produced by David Lynch with lead singer Ben Schneider in the role of Special Agent Chester Desmond’s musical nephew’s doppelgänger. Standout songs are the stunning title track Long Lost, I Lied, and Not Dead Yet. The last quarter of the album is a dream state soundscape, Time’s Blur, the band becoming the radio wave escaping earth’s atmosphere. T
