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?

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.

Re: “Whither BAKC?

That is a great article !
I can tell you worked really hard on it!
It is a shame that you didn't care to dig deep enough to actually inspect one of their contracts that does in fact state "J Distribution will not cash your check for $250 (credit card will not be processed) until your albums have been reviewed and officially placed into stores".
The issue should be wether or not they are holding up their end of the bargain. Getting a CD on the shelf for the Christmas season is not getting them there on December 24th. That is what we were shooting for, that is what we advertised for, and considering when they cashed the check, they had plenty of time to come through.

I thought it was great journalism to add in that the bands they help are talentless. I am sure all the bands that work with them are glad to know they have no talent. I am sure they will line up to buy the pitch now. Wait..they can't - its free.

I am really excited to know that my band ,Drive13, is misogynistic and clich�Well, I knew about the cliche part. But considering I wrote those songs, I know what they are about. There is no woman hating going on here. These are songs about how sad it is that so many people divorce (Song 10). About marrying my perfect wife (song 6). About starting out with a new band (song 7). About the how being a "player" doesn't seem so cool or important once you meet the right girl (song 8). About the passing of my father (song 5). About not being the jock that gets the girl, but somehow getting her (song 3) About getting over a bad relationship (song 2) About not agreeing with everything she does, but having fun with the fact you love her anyway (song 1). And stretching the truth a little about what happens after prom (song 4). There is no misogynistic message to any of these songs.
Considering your position at your paper, you should be ashamed of yourself for not caring engough to take the time to do a good job.

You never read a contract, yet spewed your incorect info on the public.
You branded every band that works with BAKC as talenless.
You didn't listen to much, if any, of our CD - yet branded us misogynistic.


I know you feel our CD is not important. THat is ok. Opinions vary. But the quality of our CD has nothing to do with how we were treated. It should have never been mentioned. And the talent level of the bands that work with BAKC should have nothing to do with how they are treated either. So why toss it in there? You were supposed to be doing a service for local musicians and tip them off to the possible pitfalls awaiting them, not grading their talent level. Or inform them that this was an isolated incident and BAKC is great.

Instead, you let us down.
