Busy, Busy, Busy.

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

Coming Attractions, Late July 2013 Edition

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

Coming Attractions

The good news is: there’s quite a lot in the hopper over here at Musoscribe World Headquarters. The sorta-bad news is that as a result, I don’t have a review to post today. But I would like to take a moment to thank all of my loyal readers – viewership of this blog is waaaaay

A Quick Post

With all the news coming out of Boston, it doesn’t seem like the time to post something as frivolous as an album review or somesuch. So instead here’s a YouTube clip of The Standells with their classic ode to that city. Regular blogging will resume shortly. Follow “the_musoscribe” on Twitter and get notified when new

Coming Attractions

It’s rare that I don’t post a full blog entry on a business day, but at the moment I have a number of big projects bubbling under, and those are monopolizing my time a bit. I hope to announce some details shortly. In the meantime, I’ll (hopefully) whet your appetite for returning here by listing

Please Stand By

Late night last night seeing The Machine in concert. Review of the show to come soon(ish). In the meantime I might humbly direct your attention toward an interview/feature I did on the band — a fine Pink Floyd Tribute band — several years ago. Here’s that feature, from way back in my pre-blog days. The

Happy Thanksgiving

I’ve been running this blog for just shy of three and a half years now, posting new content just about every business day (I’ve missed a few, and when life intrudes, I occasionally reach back in to the archives and repost something old, but I haven’t done that very often at all). One tradition I

Coming Attractions

Between day-job commitments, (happy) personal matters, and blog-related travel, these are busy days at Musoscribe World Headquarters. My goal is to deliver fresh, new content – usually 500-1000 words – every business day. And for more than three years going, I’ve kept to that goal nearly every day. Every rare so-often, however, I just don’t

Preview — 1964: The Tribute

Here in my adopted hometown of Asheville, NC, there’s something of a modern-day annual tradition. Every year ’round this time, the local Fireman’s Association does a fundraiser. Now, this being the South, they have to use the word “association.” Because if they called themselves what they really are, they would probably find themselves unable to

The Obligatory Stopgap Post

Lots else going on at Musoscribe World Headquarters today; this is (or would have been) my first business day without a new blog post in, well, years. So here’s just a quick rundown of what’s in the hopper: An interview with Gordon Anderson, head of reissue/archival label Real Gone Music An interview with Bill Spooner,
