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.
- In connection with the release of Concord/Fantasy’s 6CD Creedence box set, an in-depth interview with CCR‘s drummer Doug “Cosmo” Clifford
- A review (with photos) of Fitz & the Tantrums‘ packed-house show art Asheville NC’s Orange Peel
- A wide-ranging interview with former Hawkwind vocalist/sax/flute man Nik Turner, including photos from his wild show here in Asheville
- A photo essay of the Mondo Zombie Boogaloo triple-bill tour (just ended) featuring Southern Culture on the Skids, The Fleshtones, and Los Straitjackets.
And, as previously promised (but as yet undelivered)…
- A conversation with Richard Barone about The Bongos‘ lost (and now found) 1986 album Phantom Train
- Howard Kaylan (Turtles, Flo and Eddie, Mothers) discusses his autobiography Shell Shocked
- Exclusive: Paul Revere and the Raiders’ 1960s manager Roger Hart reveals how he came up with the concept/treatment we would all eventually know as The Monkees
Plus a staggering number of releases: archival, reissue, and new music. And coming in December, my usual best-of-the-year roundup of albums, DVDs and shows.
Stay tuned, and as always, thanks for reading.
