Evil Roy Slade Rides Again!

Let’s talk about Under appreciated bands. Rock Bands. Bands that really have been putting out consistent music over an extended period. The band I’m thinking of is Sloppy Seconds. From the first time I heard the chords to “Come Back Tracy” and “I Don’t wanna be a Homosexual” to their latest CD ENDLESS BUMMER. This band continues to put out quality, fun, hookey guitar punk rock music. It’s fun as hell, well played and about subjects that only teenage boys and horny twenty year old’s talk about. Which is just fine with me. So check out this band, see them on tour. When I got their DESTROYED LP in the mail at WLKL 90 FM back in the day, it was the start of a wonderful relationship, them playing JUNK ROCK and me loving every minute of it.

Time will Tell if Ken Berry was a Genius or Just Some Asshole Fiddling Around with his Duesenberg

I waited all night long in line for tickets to see Ted Nugent. Now, that might shock some of you, but I love the Motor City Mad Man. Love his music, I mean “Free-For-All”? Come on, that song rules. I waited with a few friends of mine, Mike Mouchi, Morty Martin, Greg Van Halen (his favorite group was,..you guessed it AC/DC) and my brother. We sat in line shooting the breeze, every once in a while nipping off to the van, one or two at a time, to get a smoke or have a drink. By the time 7am rolled around the the box office opened, we were hammered and Mouchi had fallen asleep/passed out propped up against a trash can and a wall. We just left him there when the line started. We did come back to get him after we got our tickets, we were certain that no one would harass him. It’s time like those that made me glad to have a van that we could borrow, so that we could have a smoke, take a drink and in Greg VH’s case, get a blow job. Good times.

Complete Dirty Feathers Interview

We had a chance to talk to Andrew Kling and Ted Faust of The Dirty Feathers before their show at Mike N’ Molly’s in Champaign, IL on July 10, 2011. It was a nice short chat, I will take the blame for that one, I should have a few more questions lined up. The sound is pretty good, and Andrew and Ted couldn’t have been nicer. A really good up and coming group, Dirty Feathers played great and put on a good show. Check out the interview then head on over to their web site and find out more about them and when they are playing next. PS- I let the tape on the interview go on a bit after the usual thanks you’s and what not because I wanted to share the band you hear in the background The Curses, and two so you could hear my girlfriend at the end say she loves The Dirty Feathers, which she does. Normally I would cut that out, but I thought both things should be included in the interview.

If Only Lucky Larry V Could See me Now!

I liked to tell you a story about the first time I ran into Larry V at his Fried Egg Palace in Farmer City. I was a bit down on my luck, I’d been fired from my job managing a chicken farm and had been hitting the bottle a little too hard. One day I stumbled into Larry’s Fried Egg Palace. There he was behind the counter talking to customers, a short squat man wearing a ball cap two sizes too small for his head. Just chatting away, telling stories about his time in the Air Force. I staggered up to the counter, about to puke. Larry just sized me up and said “Hey Partner, did I ever tell you about the time I was stuck in the woods with a bad case of herpes and nothing to drink to Peroxide?” and with that began a long beautiful relationship. I went to work for Larry not long after, working my way up from dish washer to head cook and eventually his right hand man. It was a beautiful two months. I miss the place, and when I get hungry for Meatloaf Fried Egg Supreme, I stop in Farmer City. Larry is still there, talking about his “war” wounds and his trek across America on a Tricycle. I love that man, if it wasn’t for him, there would be no SLTM (The Podcast). So this one is for you Larry, thanks a ton buddy your just like a jabbering angel whom god got tired of hearing from.
