Re: “Band of brothers Radkey marches out of St. Joseph

These guys are definitely worth seeing. I caught one of their shows in St. Joe where they blew a KC band (Maps For Travelers) off the stage. As ZB said, St. Joe's music scene is alive and well.

Re: “Band of brothers Radkey marches out of St. Joseph

Check out www.tuningfork.tv if you have any dout about what St. Joe is musically. Musicans and fans of music unite nightly to show support for each other. Rather it be Open Mics, shows for local acts or touring acts (Omaha, Kc, Wichita, Austin, New York to name a few in the last few weeks) St Joe offers many different outlets for many different styles and tastes of music. By no account has it been cremated. And for the record St. Joe backs Radkey 110% they are an awesome piece to this towns puzzle. Do yourself a favor and spend a tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday or saturday night checking it out. You might be suprised to find out the only thing burning St. Joe down is the music scene.

Re: “Band of brothers Radkey marches out of St. Joseph

You think KC has a dead music scene?-----Try ST Joe--Its already been cremated. I wish these guys all the luck in the world---hopefully they will escape the midwest.

Re: “Wayne Coyne, of the Liberty Hall-bound Flaming Lips, just wants your full attention

If you could play in front of thousands of people and provide them with an hour and a half of bliss, wouldn't you sell out just a little?

Re: “Wayne Coyne, of the Liberty Hall-bound Flaming Lips, just wants your full attention

Im old enough (51) to remember TFL before they got into the cartoon soundtrack business. They played a gig at Ellijos at 18th and Grand in 1985 that was so loud that im pretty sure i suffered a touch of tinnitus. All they had for special effects was a fog machine and Wayne didnt really talk much between songs. The HEAR IT IS Flaming Lips era was best!!

Is "jew" a pejorative?

Rob, get it together you neophyte! This sycophantic love affair with Wayne's antics just undermines Steven Drozd's hard work to make the band half of what it used to be musically. Feel free to dislike my comments, but don't mistake yourself for one second if you think you are talking to anything but a true FL fan.

Hey Wayne, if you're so worried about the audience during your hamster ball routine, why don't you try something novel? I don't know...let's say that you actually try to play psychedelic music again. That would be a refreshing change of pace...and a hell of a lot safer for your audience.

Re: “Mike Doughty's Soul Coughing demons still haunt him

Interesting article. As a longtime (ex?) fan of SC and Doughty, I've been mystified and really put off ever since reading Book of Drugs, along with his recent comments about the band. To be clear, if he never wants to play another SC song again, that's his choice alone to make. But why now? I've seen him several times in the past, and he included songs like "Wichita" and "Janine" in the set list. Now all of a sudden the band's like Voldemort - don't even mention the name? And why would he expect all of his fans to suddenly get that memo? Sorry Mike, you can tweet as many warnings as you want, but the fact is that some of your fans are always going to like the old band's songs, which puts you in a boat with EVERY OTHER SOLO MUSICIAN WHO HAS EVER BEEN IN A BAND BEFORE, EVER. The fans don't deserve outright contempt for liking something you voluntarily put out in the world. It's like a chef making you a cake, and then you eat it, and it he comes back in and says "What'd you eat the cake for, a**hole? I just made you a pie!"

Re: “The Gospel according to Carl Butler

Carl is an amazing musician and the kind of pastor (and friend) anyone would want.

The Gospel Lounge is a fantastic way to spend a Wednesday night! Love it!

Re: “The Gospel according to Carl Butler

Carl is an awesome guy.

I saw him play a song at his daughters wedding that he had composed just for the occasion,

Brilliant musician.

Re: “KU punk-rock professor Iain Ellis returns with a look at humor in British rock

Disagree. He was one of the more influential professors I had while at KU. His class, "Expressions in youth rebellion" changed my life, and my reading habits.

Re: “KU punk-rock professor Iain Ellis returns with a look at humor in British rock

Worst professor I had during my stay at KU. Let me describe my feelings in British-talky talk: He's a twat.

Re: “KU punk-rock professor Iain Ellis returns with a look at humor in British rock

I see no one has as yet reviewed either book on Amazon. If Mr. Ellis or his representative would sent me copies of his books (Kindle format please), I would be happy to leave my completely objective 5 star review of them there.

Thank you.

Re: “Mike Doughty's Soul Coughing demons still haunt him

Well. Like in most cases, you have to let the music speak for itself and I think for what it's worth, it's obvious that soul coughing was the sum of its parts. I tried to like M.D.'s solo creations, but to no avail. I think sometimes it's better to let go and enjoy the product - just the music' forget going behind the music. Enjoy.

Re: “Center of the City, a punk alternative to the Middle of the Map

It's 21 and up? That's not very punk at all.
