THE MAN

"Rock and roll is all about sticking it to THE MAN."
- someone, probably from the '60s.

I haven't been blogging much lately because THE MAN has been keeping me down. You know THE MAN, the people of authority who make your life miserable. THE MAN (my lesbian landlords) wants the rent. THE MAN (my Indian boss) wants data. The corporate MAN is driving up my oil bills so he can buy another yacht. The political MAN is trying to suppress the working class, per usual, and taxing the bejesus out of me.

Fuck THE MAN!

Groupies, or Lack Thereof

Last night was one of those rare nights where I was so glad that I decided to stay in, despite the fact that today is a holiday for me and I don't have to go to work (although, I am still going in for a few hours, curse, curse, curse).

Around 10:00 last night Neko Case posted on twitter: "To answer your question, no, ladies in bands don't get ANY action. Actresses have a lean on all the "pussy" we were supposed to get." This prompted a discussion on the social order of rock stardom. Dozens of other female musicians chimed in saying that they never get laid while out on tour, while their male drummers pick up a different chick every night.

Colette Alexander: I remember the 1st time I ever wished I was a boy was when I started playing in bands. Oh, to be propositioned post-show.

Rockn Rolga: this is TRUTH. While my band mates were getting some action, my action was hoofin' the merch back in the van.

Sarah Conley: so true! i'm in a brother-sister band&get no action where my bro&the rest of the guys get all.i'm rarely even in the conversation

Needless to say, this discussion blew my feeble mind and shattered my rockstar fantasies. I mean, if Neko freaking Case can't get laid post-gig, how the hell is here any hope for me?

The conversation quickly turned to why this double standard exists in the music biz:

Jenny Decimal: Folks assume that a girl making it in a business that's traditionally a dudefest must be terrifying & evil, eg Margaret Thatcher.

This statement I can appreciate, especially in my career and with my education. How many dudes have told me that I intimidate them? Is it my fault that I have my shit together and make more money than they do? More importantly, am I Margaret Thatcher? God Damn! I might as well shoot myself right now.

More theories:

Steve Horrocks: It's simply due to the abundance of sluts.

Amy Millan: the merch girl man.She's the one who gets ALL the action-It's like wardrobe chicks on film sets-they get WAY more then actresses

jason bentley: It's easier to talk to MerchGirl v. BandGirl b/c MerchGirl can't leave her post! Stationary = indieboynerd confidence!

Lumpy Deardorff: I would not hit on you. Please don't take it personally, I am married & afraid of powerful women. Also, all other types of women.

flattery_sucks: It's hard to hit on women in bands, I am busy awkwardly trying to explain what their music means to me emotionally. Also crying

It appeared that gay dudes were willing to take one for the team and several propositioned Ms. Case. But overall, the straight men were being giant pansies. Team Daytrotter summed it up best, "sounds like we've got some figurin to do."

This conversation was the best thing that I have ever seen on twitter, possibly the best think ever on the internet. Although now I am totally depressed knowing that I will never get laid again.

Here are two groupie songs that I love. What makes these versions really interesting is that both were originally sung by women.

Boston - The Band, Not the City

Today the Boston Globe published a really interesting feature on the band Boston, who's debut self-titled album sold 17 million copies (the second best-selling debut album in U.S. history behind Guns N' Roses Appetite for Destruction). The article mostly focuses on the life and suicide of lead singer Brad Delp, the feud with band mastermind Tom Scholz, and litigation surrounding his death. Read When, suddenly, the sun was gone and Timeline for the band Boston.

Boston was one of the first that CDs I purchased. I was in high school (late 80s/early 90s) and listened obsessively to classic rock radio. What I loved about this album was that not only did the songs kick ass, but the fact that Scholz had an mechanical engineering degree from MIT and used his engineering knowledge to put together his own studio. The demo tapes were so good that the songs were largely untouched for their 1976 Epic Records debut. This was a revelation to me: geeks can make killer music!

Who knew that two decades later this small-town Wisconsin girl would end up living in Boston and working on the MIT campus. Now I need to start a band...

Concert/Album Review: Todd Snider Live, Boston, Feb. 5


One month into this Boston gig and I already got to cross an artist off of my bucket list. Believe it or not folks, I saw Todd Snider for the first time on Saturday, February 5, at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston. This was my first Boston music outing, and compared to Toronto venues, the Paradise is way too nice for me to be hanging out in. It doesn't have the distinctive smell that the Horseshoe has. It doesn't have duct tape holding the walls up like at the El Mo. It isn't 20 bazillion degrees like Lee's Palace. Seriously, there is nice, shiny paint on the walls, plus unstained carpeting, fast bartenders, and sanitary bathrooms. What's up with that???

This show was a sit-down affair, which I wasn't really prepared for. I was mentally prepared to rock out all night (not that you can't do that sitting down, but still). The last time I was at a gig where seats were on the dance floor was at Gary Louris and Mark Olson in Toronto in February 2009. Like that show, I brought down the average age at this gig. And of course I didn't get there when the doors opened at 8, so I didn't get a seat, which is fine because I prefer to stand. I ambled up to the balcony and ended up meeting a bartender who is a huge fan of The Sadies (fuck yeah!), and the coolest dude ever, Zman, a well known taping fanatic. Rock on Zman!

This is where I mix the show review in with a review of Snider's latest album, Todd Snider Live: The Storyteller. I've been following Snider's music for a long time now, and his music and songwriting range everywhere from manic to brilliant. He's one of the few artists who still incorporates the long tradition of adding humor to country music. From everyone who I have talked to, who's blogs I've read, who post comments on alt country message boards (yeah, I'm a tool), they have all said that the Todd Snider live show is a completely different beast than his studio recordings. Not that his studio recordings aren't killer, but his live show's reputations supersede him. (Does that make any sense? I've been drinking.)

Regardless, my first "experience" with a Todd Snider live show came by the way of the greatest bootleg of all time, and I say this without hyperbole. One of Snider's superfans compiled, spliced together the best recordings, mastered, and made cover art for a five volume set of bootlegs which he named Tales From Moondawg's Tavern. Aside from the bootleg series for Bob Dylan put out by Sony records, this is the best bootleg in the world. I think my alt country music blogger colleagues would agree with this statement.

Snider and his people aren't stupid. They know that fans love the Moondawg's boots. They know that people live for Snider's live shows. So it came as no surprise when Sinder released a proper double live album, the aforementioned Todd Snider Live: The Storyteller. This album was complied over several shows during the last year and a half. On the album he is backed by a live band called Great American Taxi. His live set in Boston was solo acoustic. For the Boston gig he initially followed the first three tracks from this album, then veered off into audience requests and stuff that Snider felt like doing. Importantly, Snider sold/is selling official recordings from this show and subsequent shows. I bought a code card for $7 (right) which gives me the right to download and listen to the show that I just saw. In this digital age, being able to download the show is an incredibly easy marketing tool, and a great way to support the artists that you love. Snider is the first artist whom I have seen take this approach. I suspect that many others will follow suit.

The Moondawg's boot covers material from 1996 to 2006. Most of the songs and stories that Snider plays on his new album and played at the Feb. 5 gig I was already very familiar with from the boots. It's not to say that Snider live isn't fantastic - he is! It's just that, with the exception of the covers, I knew exactly what was coming after he hit the first few cords. The same goes for the older songs on the Storyteller album. Like I said, this isn't bad, just somewhat predictable. For the post-2006 material on Storyteller, I was laughing my ass off. If you saw someone last week walking down Cambridge Ave. in front of Mass General Hospital, laughing her ass off while listening to her MP3 player, that was me listening to "Mushroom Story," which itself is worth the price of the album.

"That last song was such a touching little number about athleticism and hallucinogenic drugs. You don't really hear enough of that in folk music any more. I'm just doing what I can."

To sum up, go see Snider live, buy the show download, and buy Storyteller. Give Storyteller to a friend who has never heard of Todd Snider. Folk music and stories like these are meant to be shared.

January 2011 Recap

Lots of noteworthy things happened while I was on hiatus in January. Here's a quick rundown of what I missed while I was moving and getting settled.

#1. Justin Townes Earle started out 2011 by rocking it on Letterman on January 5, playing the title track from his 2010 release Harlem River Blues. Make sure to note Jason Isbell killing it on lead guitar .

#2. I cursed and cursed and cursed when I learned that The Jayhawks were opening their reunion tour in Toronto at the Phoenix, on January 18, only two weeks after I moved. This show coincided with the reissues of their classic albums Tomorrow the Green Grass and Hollywood Town Hall. From everything that I read, the show was pretty great:
Most obviously it was there in their vocals and the way their harmonies interlocked – as good as they sounded individually it was like their voices were meant to be together for always – but also in the way their guitars played off one another, Olson’s acoustic rhythm and Louris’ searing electric leads reminding that they played both sides of the country-rock tag equally and just that undefinable but undeniable chemistry between them.
- Chromewaves.net

The Jayhawks' style has certainly aged well, and the clich├ęd yet accurate observation that "they sound better than ever" was heard exchanged between more than a few contented concertgoers. - Exclaim!

The Jayhawks really were fantastic. A bit of a slow build but then they got rocking. Harmonies were blissful. The new songs had a very defintie new energy and excitement. They are coming back around in the summer with that tour. - Rad Jen

It was awesome, original line-up. It was fucking epic. I feel rough today. - Kellow
After some address changing issues were cleared up with Amazon and my credit card company, I finally received TTGG and HTH in the mail last week. And let me tell you, they sound so good.

#3. My main man Hayes Carll played on the Tonight Show on January 21, and my cable was installed on January 22. Grumble, grumble. Despite the fact the Jay didn't know what the fuck he was talking about, Carll and his band destroyed it on Leno. Is "KMAG YO YO" not "Subterranean Homesick Blues" on meth? The album KMAG YOYO will be officially released on February 15.




#4. Todd Snider wrote an amazing essay for the Village Voice blog on what he would do if he met Bob Dyaln.
it's hard to think of new ways to consider bob dylan and his work
he's probably the most debated and discussed singer to ever live.
but here's a question. especially for songwriters.
what are you going to do if you meet bob dylan?
.....continue reading here.
Snider released his latest album, the two-disc Todd Snider Live: The Storyteller on February 1. He played an acoustic gig in Boston last night. A review will be forthcoming.

#5. In Hunstville, Alabama, on January 27th, Jason Isbell joined the Drive-By Truckers on stage for the first time in four years. My blogger colleague AutopsyIV at Nine Bullets has the full run-down. WOW! Even without Isbell, the Truckers remain one of my top five live acts. I'm very jealous of all of you fuckers who were at that Huntsville show!

See ya White Stripes

Yesterday afternoon twitter exploded with the unsurprising news that The White Stripes were officially calling it quits. Considering that they hadn't put out an album since 2007, and that Jack White has had about 25,000 "side" projects with various bands and producing gigs over the last few years, one can hardly be shocked by this announcement. I did, however, feel a twinge of sadness upon reading this news.

I will always remember exactly where I was when I first heard The White Stripes. It was spring of 2002 and I had just moved to Toronto. I was driving around the west end, completely lost, when I heard "Fell in Love With a Girl" on the radio. Holy crap! What is this? Love at first listen.

I then read in Rolling Stone and Spin about how all of the "The" bands (The White Stripes, The Strokes, The Vines and The Hives, I wrote about this in March 2009) were supposed to "save" rock and roll, like rock needed saving. The White Stripes were really the only ones of this bunch to achieve significant commercial success. And despite Jack White being a totally weird dude, I was completely enamored with his brand of stripped-down, blues-based rock, especially on the first three albums.

Although a lot of critics cite Elephant as their best work (it won a fucking Grammy for Best Alternative Album), White Blood Cells will always remain my main White Stripes love. My friends and I would sing along to the entire album - from the folk-pop "Hotel Yorba" to the "Union Forever," who's lyrics are taken entirely from Citizen Kane lines, to the sweet "We're Going to Be Friends," to the awesome garage-punk of "Fell in Love With a Girl." My buddy Vic would play guitar and I would try to sing along to "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground." The White Stripes did "Dead Leaves" and "We're Going to be Friends" that fall on Saturday Night Live. John fucking McCain was the host.

As the they posted on their web site: "The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful."

Thanks for the music Jack and Meg. Can't wait to see what you do next.

February Feel Bad For You Comp

While I was on hiatus I enlisted my colleague TruerSound to curate the monthly Feel Bad For You comp for our friends on AltCountryTab.ca. TruerSound in turn enlisted the help of RomeoSidVicious and his mad programming skillz to turn the comp completely digital, with it's own URL and other fancy crap. TruerSound also enlisted the musical opinions of other friends/bloggers/jokers/sociopaths to contribute to this fine project, to make it more diverse and shit. Friends, I present to you, the February Feel Bad For You comp, complete with it's own website, FBFY Monthly Mixtape, and cool cassette streaming thingy. You can click on the aforementioned link to download the comp and to see which contributor you would like to blame for their terrible choice in songs. Enjoy!




1. Andrew Combs - Tennessee Time.mp3
Buy (Bandcamp): Tennessee Time (2010)
Submitted By: Autopsy IV
Comments: Jordan, the manager of The Only Sons, gave me a heads up about this guy. He was in Tampa working the merch table for the Caitlin Rose / Justin Townes Earle tour. We had a short conversation and I recorded him playing a song for me. A couple of days later he emailed me this album and it’s fucking great.

2. The Backsliders - "Broken Wings"
From: Throwing Rocks At The Moon (1997)
Submitted By: Truersound
Comments: “the distance from the bottle to the floor/gets closer evertime I drink one more” A classic song off a classic album

3. Against Me! - "Holy Shit"
From: Searching For A Former Clarity (2005)
Submitted By: PearlSnapMan
Comments: I’ve been completely obsessed with this song and this band recently.

4. Amazing Rhythm Aces - "King Of The Cowboys"
From: Stacked Deck (1975)
Submitted By: erschen
Comments: Nice 70′s country rock. They are most known for their lone hit, Third Rate Romance. I came across this song a few years back. Beautiful piano by James Hooker, who’s been a part of Nanci Griffith’s band for many years. Also, some nice harmonies. Kind of an ode to westerns.

5. Charlie Parr and the Black Twig Pickers - "The Whupped Him Up The Hill"
From: Glory in the Meeting House (2010)
Submitted By: RomeoSidVicious
Comments: I have been on sort of a Gospel kick in my personal playlists lately and now I am going to share that kick with all of ya’ll. This is just an amazing track with great vocals and an awesome backing band. “Church music” by and large sucks and is rarely anything I would listen to but old timey Gospel is a different story and this one comes from a more visceral time when they weren’t afraid to paint a mental image with hymns. Nowadays, if you ever darken a church house door, you won’t hear anything like this because the current crop of religious people are mostly in it just to feel good. It doesn’t matter if you religious or not this is still a great track from a different time.

6. Good Old War - "That’s Some Dream"
From: Good Old War (2010)
Submitted By: Blair Hook

7. The Bohannons - Axe To Grind.mp3
Buy (Bandcamp): Days of Echo (2010)
Submitted by: Corey Flegel
Comments: I’ve been extremely lucky to go on the road with the rock band Glossary the past couple of years or so…I don’t know where we were, but I remember reading some very loose talk on a random bar room bathroom stall about some band called the Bohannons. I didn’t think a whole lot about it until I was later pillaging the Grand Palace poster stash and saw a poster for a Lucero/Bohannons show that was pretty pretty badass. I hollered at Bingham Barnes(Glossary bassist and Grand Palace silkscreen extraordinaire) and said- Hey I know these Bohannons! I read about them that time…Anyways, Bingham says- oh yeah, The Bohannons are the super rock your body/melt your face awesome dudes from Chattanooga. And Lord knows they are…I love this band. I think they ate my brain…

8. Tommy Womack - You Don’t Get Over Love.mp3
From: Unreleased
Submitted By: toomuchcountry
Comments: This song belongs in this month’s FBFY compilation for a couple of reasons. One, February – Valentine’s – Love – Broken Hearts – Whatever. Also, Tommy Womack recently released a Government Cheese anthology and has scheduled two February reunion shows in Bowling Green, KY and and Nashville. (Buy, read, devour & laugh at Cheese Chronicles: The True Story Of A Rock-n-Roll Band You’ve Never Heard Of if you want to learn more.) This song has never been released on any of Womack’s solo material. Its from a performance on March 10, 2001 at the now-gone 12th & Porter bar/restaurant in Nashville as Tommy opened for Scott Miller. Womack was about six years removed from the breakup of the Cheese, and Miller had just formed Scott Miller & The Commonwealth two years after the dissolution of The V-Roys. You Don’t Get Over Love, and you don’t get over great music.

9. Miss Quincy - Wild Mountain Flower.mp3
Buy (CD Baby): Your Mama Won’t Like Me (2011)
Submitted by: Simon2307
Comments: Seem to have a thing for female vocals and banjo’s at the moment – this is a new one on my playlist.

10. The Church Keys - "Brother Was You Prayin’"
From: Work With It! (1999)
Submitted By: Bowood
Comments: Was going to send in these guys’ “Pigtails Plaid Skirt” , but as just listening to that song may be a felony, rip it up with this stomper instead.

11. The Great Recession Orchestra - "Chinese Honeymoon"
From: Have You Ever Even Heard of Milton Brown? (2010)
Submitted By: Mike Orren
Comments: While Bob Wills is the undisputed King of Texas Swing, it was invented by the long-forgotten Milton Brown. A crew of some of Fort Worth’s top musicians rediscovered Brown’s work last year and produced a tribute album showcasing Brown’s more gypsy jazz-heavy fusion with hillbilly music. “Chinese Honeymoon” is a nice uptempo intro to the album.

12. Kitty Wells - "My Big Truck Drivin’ Man"
From: Kitty Wells Showcase (1968)
Submitted By: DCNoise
Comments: Kitty Wells: older than your grandma, cooler than you.

13. Reckless Kelly - "She Sang the Red River Valley"
From: Acoustic: Live At Stubb’s (2000)
Submitted By: Rockstar Aimz
Comments: This song makes me want to learn how to play guitar.

14. The Snake The Cross The Crown - "Gypsy Melodies"
From: Cotton Teeth (2007)
Submitted By: Beldo
Comments: I’ve been listening to this album a lot lately. One of my favorites of 2007. Getting worried that I haven’t heard a peep from these guys in four years.

15. The Civil Wars - "Barton Hollow"
From: Barton Hollow (2011)
Submitted By: Phil Norman
Comments: Sure, they got popular due to a Grey’s Anatomy placement. So what — that tune, “Poison and Wine,” leaves me quivering in my seat. Sure, they do the same sappy folky thing time and time again. So what — they do it right.

16. Pete Stein - Tiny Creatures.mp3
From: Dark Horse demos (2010)
Submitted By: TheOtherBrit
Comments: I think I’ve seen Pete from Truckstop Coffee play more than any other artist in the last year or two. This is a song of a demo album he’s been touring with the last few months. From what I’ve heard live his next full album should be pretty great.

17. Ponderosa - "Devil On My Shoulder"
From: Moonlight Revival (2011)
Submitted By: Trailer

18. R.B. Morris - "Roy"
From: Take That Ride (1997)
Submitted By: Brad
Comments: Here’s RB Morris. Great songwriter, He’s a poet from Knoxville, picked up a guitar and now does this. This one is a classic album. Scott Miller thinks this guy’s the shit. You’ll recognize the very famous singer on this song instantly. This is a great song. No Cheeseburger [Editor's Note: Jimmy Buffet reference], but great nonetheless. Listen a couple of times, and you’ll be singing it over your oatmeal in the morning.

19. Neko Case - "Deep Red Bells"
From: Blacklisted (2002)
Submitted By: Cowbelle
Comments: My favorite Neko track, nine years later.

20. Jimmy Sturr - "Edelweiss"
From: Polka! All Night Long (1996)

Snow Rage Freak Out!


I told you that I would freak out if we got any more snow! Up to a total of 21 more inches by tomorrow afternoon. Fuck this! I'm on the next plane to Cancun. If planes could get out, that is.
