One Kiss Can Lead To Another
Originally uploaded by cspowers.

Not too long ago Rhino Records released a tribute to girl groups of the 50’s and 60’s. 4 CDs packaged in a pink hat box, this 4 cd, 120 song collection captures the heart and soul of all those one hit wonder girls groups that defined high school pop in the early days of rock music. As you might expect, it’s full of pining love ballads about the boys they love, about the scheming and seducing, about falling for both the good ones and the bad ones. But amid all the saccharine sweet pop melodies the come and go like cotton candy on your tongue, there are some enduring gems of strength and heart and soul. Sometimes the girl groups have a strength in their vocal style that sets them apart. Sometimes its the blues adult lyrics, sometimes it’s the knock-down chops of the session band behind them. Whatever the source, this is a box set that delivers the both the sweet and the savory of the girl group sounds of the 60s.

Howdy all,

This week marks the debut of The Hideaways into the rotation at Taproot Radio. I’ve included “El Centro County Line” off their new CD _The Whiskey Tango Sessions_. At one level this song is one of those exercises in creating the archetypal country song. Truck, Dogs, Liquor, Women, Heartbreak. But the easy going pace, acordion riffs, and easy going guitar lines forgive all sins…..

Enjoy!
Calvin

Howdy all,

I’ve been feeling like Taproot Radio was missing some good old fashioned rock so this week I added The Drams into rotation. Their harmonies remind of the Jayhawks even though they are less rootsy. They’ve got a good clean-out-the-mental-cobwebs energy.

Enjoy!

Joe Swank and the Zen Pirates @ The Hideaway BBQ

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Joe Swank and the Zen Pirates @ The Hideaway BBQ
Nov 112006
 

Last night I went to The Hideaway BBQ joint with J. to try out try out their BBQ well as to check out the music venue there. J. and I both had the Texas style brisket. The Hideaway has a pretty good bar and music stage area. Acoustics are pretty terrible, but that’s about what you expect in venues like that. They have a _great_ lineup of bands coming to their stage over the next few months.

Joe Swank and The Zen Pirates were opening for the Two Dollar Pistols. I’m know Joe fairly well although he walked right past me at one point without recognizing me. Harrrrump :-) Anyway, I caught up with him later and it was good to chat with him. I’d intended to record the show for a podcast, half the songs I recorded were from the very back of the restaraunt and didn’t sound good enough. The other half of the show was lost because while I was taking pictures of the band, another engineer moved my recorder and in the process accidently put my recorder in standby mode. Arrrgh. Live and learn.

I did manage to snap a couple of pics:

Review: 50 Years Too Late by Joey Allcorn

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Review: 50 Years Too Late by Joey Allcorn
Nov 052006
 

Holy Frijoles Batman! A _concept_ album in the alt.country genre. You don’t see those every day. And not only does Joey Allcorn have a darn good concept album here, it’s _the_ alt.country concept. On the opening track, “50 Years Too Late,” Joe Allcorn laments the fact that he was born 50 years to late to share the stage with the likes of Hank WIlliamms Ernest Tubb, and Patsy Cline. And you believe it too. He’s got the Hank Williams sound down pat, capturing both the archetypal nasal twang as well as Williams’ sincerity. From there we get song after song Joey Allcorn originals that sound like they were discovered in the trunk of William’ Cadillac the day he died. “Son of A Ramblin’ Man” “Tired of Being Blue” are highlights among this strong set of tunes.

And then, we get to track 10, “Like I Never Will Again.” The opening chords give a hint that something’s a little different. But the vocal style and lyrics sound come in reassuringly, just like the Hank Williams inspired tunes you’ve been listening to. And from out of nowhere an electric guitar comes crashing in with a wall of sound and then exits almost as quickly leaving you with a “what hit me?” and a “Did I just hear that? sort of creepy feeling. What the hell is going on? Then they do it again, creating simultaneously a tune that’s true to the spirit of Hank Williams and hard-as-punk rock in a single song. If that’s not alt.country, I don’t know what is. On the following tracks, “Nashville, TN,” and “Graveyard Bound,” Joey Allcorn confirms what you thought you heard on “Like I Never Will Again,” Joey Allcorn’s band, having proved for 10 songs that they have nailed old school country, they move on to full speed ahead punk-inspired rock while staying true to that old school country sound, that Hank III can only dream of producing. Think of Joey Allcorn as Hank IIIa or Hank III version 2.0.

Review: Kickin’ Up Dust by the Honky Tonk Disciples

Boot scooting two step tune? Check. (“When I Drink I Cheat”) Americana style traveling song? Check (“Lonely Town”) Heartfelt baby-take-me-back songs? Check. (“Someday” and “Hard As Hell”) Bad ass southern rawk songs? Check. (“Dry County Blues” and “Big City Lights”) Hip shaking blues number with screaming harmonica? Check. (“Shake It Off’) This is hard hitting, high impact country that makes you realize just how soft most country has become. _Kickin’ Up Dust_ proves that the Honky Tonk Disciples are firing on all cylinders and here’s hoping their heading to a honky tonk or biker bar near you.

Review: Payin’ The Price by the Two Timin’ Three

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Review: Payin’ The Price by the Two Timin’ Three
Nov 052006
 

On _Payin’ The Price_ the Two Timin’ Three serve up 40’s and 50’s era rockabilly like you always dreamed of, sounding retro rather than oldies, fun rather and serious, light and breezy instead of pretentious. The Two Timin’ Three are a true trio always working together, never hogging the limelight as so many cult-of-personality rockabilly bands do. Eric Laufer’s vocals sound current and old-school at the same time. Jeff Herring’s electric guitar riffs has just the right reverb and swing and Shane Kiel’s base and drum lines will make even the crustiest listeners want to snap their fingers in time to the music. The CD is chock full of good tracks, but highlights include the opening title track, “Payin’ The Prince,” “Sugar Pix,” and “Was It Love?”
