A nice rule of thumb for this group: Extended reviews/analyses should be posted on the Message Board, and shorter reactions/opinions should be posted on the Comment Wall. Otherwise, Anarchy Rules!

"That's nitpicking, isn't it?"-Nigel Tufnel's rebuttal to being read a particularly scathing review of Spinal Tap's Intravenus De Milo album.

Hi

 

Check out my interview with the Band Cargoe here:

 

http://www.perfectsoundforever.com

 

Here is a little appetizer:

 

Cargoe have the distinction of not only releasing one fantastic power pop album in 1972 but also being label mates with Big Star and making an impression on Eric Burdon. Unfortunately, bad luck and other negative factors brought them to an early end and made them stop. But now they have a reformed and released a new album with songs that they've kept on the back burner from the seventies and eighties. In this interview, bass player and singer Max Wisley talks about drugs, great concerts, memories of living in Memphis, playing together again and recording finally a follow up to their debut.

Johnny Cash - The Sun Years -1954-1958

When the barriers that separated pop and country music began to crumble in the wake of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash was one the first young country artists to take a place in the pop charts. Ironically, as hillbilly music slicked itself up in search of a wider market. Johnny Cash, broke through with a sound that was so sparse and under -produced that it must have seemed anachronistic even to the more conservative elements of the Nashville establishments. Johnny Cash was born in the remote rural…See More
