CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

SPINNER PREMIERES NEW ALIVE RECORDS LIVE ALBUM "ALIVE AT THE DEEP BLUES FEST" ALL THIS WEEK!

   

ALIVE NATURALSOUND RECORDS TO RELEASE LIVE ALBUM "ALIVE AT THE DEEP BLUES FEST" TOMORROW ON CD, DIGITAL & BBQ SAUCE RED COLORED VINYL!
 
 
ALBUM INCLUDES LIVE PERFORMANCES FROM ALIVE RECORDING ARTISTS BUFFALO KILLERS, LEE BAINS III & THE GLORY FIRES, RADIO MOSCOW, LEFT LANE CRUISER & MORE!

Earlier this summer Chris Johnson (owner of Bayport BBQ in the Twin Cities' suburb of Bayport, MN) resurrected his popular Deep Blues Festival for three glorious (sold-out) days of great music, Southern-style BBQ and camaraderie between musicians, fans and friends alike. Far from the corporate sterility of many larger modern music fests, Johnson's Deep Blues Fest instead successfully revived the communal spirit of late '60s and early '70s music gatherings, evoking the vibe of a large summer picnic with family, friends, good food and great music.

The 2012 Deep Blues Fest featured 26 bands from four countries & 16 states. Out of these acts there were seven phenomenal performances from the current Alive roster. Alive At The Deep Blues Fest is the document of these incendiary and unforgettable performances. All 13 tracks were mixed by famed Detroit producer/musician Jim Diamond, who managed to capture the loose and spontaneous feel of live albums produced in the Golden Age of rock'n'roll. Buffalo Killers and Radio Moscow turned in super heavy sets soaked in psychedelia and reverb, while Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires fiercely ripped through their show with a blistering set of songs steeped in Southern rock, R&B, soul, gospel and punk from their critically acclaimed debut LP There Is A Bomb In Gilead - an album that has been helping to define the sounds of The New South. Brian Olive and his backing band melded soulful R&B with technicolor garage-pop for their early daytime set, while the Welsh duo Henry's Funeral Shoe, Left Lane Cruiser and newcomers John The Conqueror perhaps kept closest to the Deep Blues curriculum with their respectively raunchy and heavily amplified modern interpretations of rural gutbucket Delta Blues.

To get a sense of this intimate yet electrifying festival, grab a copy of Alive At The Deep Blues Fest, invite a bunch of good friends over for some food & drink, and PLAY IT LOUD.

Alive at the Deep Blues Fest will be released November 27th through Alive Naturalsound Records in the following formats: CD, Digital and Black Vinyl with mp3 download card & poster, as well as Limited Edition "BBQ SAUCE RED" Colored Vinyl exclusive to the Bomp mail-order.

Chris Johnson and Alive Naturalsound Records will be throwing a special Alive At The Deep Blues Fest Record Release Show featuring Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires on Sat. Dec. 1st at 8:00pm at Bayport BBQ, 328 5th Ave. N., Bayport, MN

Buffalo Killers sound just as American as their name. Brothers Zachary and Andrew Gabbard, plus Joseph Sebaali, bring the full-force blues rock. “Get It,” off "Dig. Sow. Love. Grow"., is gritty, loud and will no doubt beg the comparison to a handful of contemporary blues-rock bands like former tourmates the Black Keys and the North Mississippi Allstars. – Magnet
"Dig. Sow. Love. Grow." isn’t just another retro-sounding album that mimics bands of yesteryear. It’s a raw, real and commanding sound forged from grit that is as wide and expansive as the western plains, and is as mighty as it’s namesake. – Marquee Magazine
An organic summer stoner sound that's at once familiar and fresh.– Shindig!
They may not hail from the depths of Dixie, but Ohio-based beardy trio Buffalo Killers' roots stretch down to Kentucky, and they embody the sun-soaked south – not only in the hazy twangs of their 70s-style grooves, but also in their laid-back livin' and organic approach to music.– Classic Rock

Alive Natural sound label New Release :Where Is Parker Griggs - Compilation Showcase - Review

I have had the opportunity to review the new cd from thee Alive Naturalsound label entitled " Where Is Parker Griggs". This is a compilation of recordings by Alive Naturalsound recording artist, most of which are available only on this set. Included in the lineup is Radio Moscow,
Hacienda, Buffalo Killers, Henrys Funeral Shoe, Black Diamond Heavies, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, Brian Olive, Gardens, White Noise Sound, Left Land Cruiser and The Bloody Hollies. Now you can imagine in any compilation of songs by diverse artists that there will be songs that you like more than others just due to the song types/styles and your own personal taste. This entire compilation is very well composed and flows very nicely. Radio Moscow who has two songs on this compilation come on strong with mind expanding overtones and eerie swamp sounds, Hacienda who also have two songs, both which are exclusive to this release are more directed to the general listening audience and airplay. Buffalo Killers, also featured 2 exclusive to this release tracks which I found enjoyable and in the nature of early Joe Walsh. Henrys Funeral Shoe has one song which is exclusive to this release and has a soul side laid down over a nice slide groove and harmonica. Lee Bains III a debut song that is exclusive to this release and Brian Olive seem well suited to airplay. Gardens drum up a sound that was primitive and endearing like the Ramones or the Donnas... only their sound. White Noise Sound was actually one of my favorite tracks on the release with a song called There Is No Tomorrow. It shows originality and interest to go where few others venture...but then I like different stuff! Left Lane Cruiser with one track was pretty straight forward rock music with a lot of slide. The Bloody Hollies delivered the bluesiest tune on the recording with Dirty S'x. Overall a very interesting listen!

So where exactly is Radio Moscow's singer, guitarist and creative fountainhead, Parker Griggs? Actually, we don't have a clue. But we do know that in January he'll be out on the road fronting Radio Moscow for a handful of explosive Midwest shows in support of their latest Alive album, THE GREAT ESCAPE OF LESLIE MAGNAFUZZ.
