A Midwest Love Story- An Interview with SERVICE

Apr 6, 2017

Months ago, I got to spend 24 hours with Jilly Weiss and Russell Simins at their home in Indianapolis. It’s the perfect midwest home with an unbelievable garden, lots of pink flamingos, a record collection I would die for and their adorable elderly cat, Armani. Jilly and Russell met like so many musicians have before but their connection is something magic....

“Birth Control” by Reformed Whores

“Birth Control” by Reformed Whores

Apr 3, 2017

It’s safe to say there’s nothing quite like Reformed Whores around right now. Described as a “filthy musical comedy duo” Reformed Whores sing terribly catchy country songs drenched with raunchy humor. “Birth Control” from their debut album Ladies Don’t Spit provides a little ditty on the importance of birth control....

A Q&A with Donna Gaines on a Lifetime of Rock n’ Roll

Mar 27, 2017

I recently read Donna Gaines' memoir, A Misfit's Manifesto. Gaines, who has a doctorate in sociology has turned a rock n' roll lifestyle into a career. Having grown up in Long Island, Gaines spent her entire life around music. Her mother, Betty Bradley, was a professional singer and Gaines was drawn to the lifestyle, spending all of her time with musicians.

“Shadowplay” by Velvet Kills

“Shadowplay” by Velvet Kills

Feb 26, 2017

I always listen to Joy Division when it’s cold out. With the sudden climate change in Cincinnati from 75 degree to 30 degrees in the span of about 12 hours, I was definitely in need of some cold weather music. Velvet Kills, the sleek electropunk darkwave band, does a really badass version of Joy Division’s “Shadowplay.” The European two...

A Sexy Sunday Morning: Lydia Lunch and Jonnine Standish with Rowland S. Howard

Nov 20, 2016

  It’s pretty obvious I’m obsessed with duets right now. I’ve been pretty deep into Rowland S. Howard‘s library this past month and two of my favorite songs are made totally sexy and beyond cool by Lydia Lunch and Jonnine Standish. In 1982, Lydia Lunch and Rowland S. Howard released a single that included “Some Velvet...

“Bat Thing” by Castration Squad

Oct 31, 2016

Happy Halloween, my little spooky friends! In honor of this dark day, today’s song of the moment is “Bat Thing” by my favorite deathrock band, Castration Squad.  Castration Squad was a lovely group of ghouls from California featuring Shannon Wilhelm (vocals), Mary Bat-Thing (vocals), Tiffany Kennedy (keyboards), Alice Bag (bass), Tracy Lea...

“Kingdom of Rain” by The The & Sinéad O’Connor

“Kingdom of Rain” by The The & Sinéad O’Connor

Oct 19, 2016

Collaborations are so cool, especially when done well. It brings two great and maybe unlikely combinations together for one badass song. One of my all time favorite duets is “Kingdom of Rain” by The The and Sinéad O’Connor. It was released on The The’s 1989 album, Mind Bomb. “Kingdom of Rain” is super sexy. Matt Johnson...

The Women in Punk in Please Kill Me

Sep 20, 2016

When I picked up Please Kill Me by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain I naively thought I would be writing an article about the female musicians included in the oral documentation of punk and those who were left out. It was pretty soon that I realized the issue wasn’t who they included and who they left out but how musicians and scenesters talked about women...
