Re: “Cinema Musico

"We watched pretty much every band in town come and go through the El Torreon and Icehouse" Exaggeration... all the shitty bands did play regularly because no one else wanted to play there. it's a small community, word gets around quick "we obviously have very different tastes in music, as do a lot of people these days," captain obvious, Harper is a paid music critic who actually goes to shows of all types of music. You.. what do you have on regular rotation? How often do you go to shows not at your own venue? Harper is more in touch with the music industry than you'll ever be. He's aware of trends and he's aware of tastes. You are unaware. New music disgusts you, it's a reaction to not being able to keep up with "the times." It's a side effect of aging. You lost track of what's cool so you pretend that everything is cool to feel cool. "KC scene should be more about KC bands, I know who the "favorites" are around here, I know who's "in the clique"." and this statement proves my point. Music scenes have a place for all bands, shitty ones and good ones. Once the shitty bands break up or reform to be unshitty, they stop playing your venues and listening to your bags of lies because someone who hands them money can tell better lies and book them at venues where people know they'll see semiquality music (Band Wars). The good ones stay clear of all the shitty venues and only play the venues you call "cliques." I think it's great to help out kids who want to experience playing in front of people, hell, school probably won't let them play in front of their peers. But trying to book professionals with the conflict of interest that is live venue + recording studio + label is dumb. It's not a winning combination and it's obvious no one running the shit has experience with successful business ventures or tasteful, talented musicians. The most successful all ages venues were the ones in which the bands kept 100% of the money. It's reality. Give up and join the already successful venues so you can see how it works.... or don't and just live off the talentless hacks.

Re: “James Brown, Sly Stone and Batman & Robin get roasted at a funkalicious JoCo blues club

It is nice to see that Sly Stone is still influencing musicians today. I write about Sly's impact on today's music and more in my book, Sly: the Lives of Sylvester Stewart and Sly Stone.

Re: “Devin Blair explores his inner Journeyman on a lo-fi '60s psychedelic trip to see the Wizards

This CD is a great revitaliztion of the great 60's music era with the psychiadelic beats and tones used.

Re: “Rooked

I just had found out yesterday, 3/22/08 what had happened with the store & Mr Rooks. I have been going there since 1986. I did see Ron Rooks before,but didn't know him. The store had massive vinyl up & downstairs of the second store location. His store was the first place I ever found a Badfinger 45. I noticed that the store was gone the time I was in Kansas City last July. I was headed there again. It's sad what's happening to the vinyl record stores today & unhappy to hear what had happened with this favorite vinyl business' owner as well. I will miss it,I'm sure as along with others that shopped there. Chas

Re: “Whither BAKC?

THat is correct.
My mistake.
My appologies to BAKC for accidently using their name in place of J Distribution.

Re: “Whither BAKC?

All signed contracts/vendor agreements for a band�s distribution into stores are between J Distribution and each band. So Drive 13�s claim that there was a �Contract� with BACK is incorrect.

Bands Across Kansas City�s role is to help provide opportunities for local artists to market themselves. Bands Across Kansas City (bandsacrosskansascity.com) is open to everyone- artists, venues, producers/distributors, local businesses/retailers and local music lovers.

BAKC artists also raise money every year to foster diversity and music/arts in Kansas City. This past year artists contributed $3,000 and donated used instruments to the Kansas City Public School District.
