With the passing of David Bowie this week, I’m reminded that we’ve long since entered the time in which heroes from the rock era start passing away from natural causes (as opposed to the premature-by-far ODs and such). Of the musician deaths of which I’m aware in 2015, Chris Squire is the only one I
Lots in the hopper right now at Musoscribe World HQ. Here are some teasers of what you can expect in the coming days: Translator were one of the more exciting bands to come out of the (or my) college rock era. With the songwriting and musicianship of the two front men Robert Darlington and Steve
Happy New Year. Congratulations on making it to the other side, on surviving what my Dad calls “amateur night.” Like (I hope) most of you, I am taking today off. Relatively speaking, we Americans don’t get much in the way of (paid) vacation days, and those among us who are self-employed (like myself) effectively get
Happy Labor Day to my readers in the USA; happy September to them and everyone else. This month is going to be an especially event-filled one for me: near the end of September, I will be getting married to my sweetheart.

A tradition I’ve developed these last four years is NOT posting a review, essay or interview on Thanksgiving. Instead I’m taking the day off and preparing (with my sweetheart) a nine-course Holiday feast for us, my two adult kids, and my sweetheart’s mom. Everything pretty well made from scratch, with homemade red and white wine
Here at Musoscribe World HQ, things are even busier than usual. The backlog of content I plan to provide gets bigger and bigger every day. And while today’s post does absolutely nothing to relieve the pressure of said backlog, here ya go anyway: a quick look at what I have in the hopper for readers.
I’ve been very busy of late, what with attending the Hopscotch Festival, doing lots of interviews, and listening to a ton of new and reissued music. That’s the excuse I’m going with to explain my otherwise lack of new content today. So instead I’ll take just a moment to let you know what’s coming very
There’s an embarrassment of riches in store here on the blog. Readers can look forward to the following in the upcoming days and weeks: Reviews of new music from Dave Davies, Mark Lindsay, Van Duren and Vicki Loveland, Sam Phillips, Jackson Scott, Steve Hunter, Tommy Keene, Caravan, Spock’s Beard, and more. Reissues, compilations, rarities and
