I first met Peggy LeGee at a show in Troy. We talked music, art, writing, and the local scene, which she’s been a huge supporter of. Then she went to her car and came back with two comics, Moochie the Dumpster Kat, which was issue one, and the second issue, Enter the Shopping Kart Man. […]

Johnny Morse is a rocker’s rocker. There isn’t a bar or roadhouse in the Capital Region he hasn’t been kicked out of (or wish he had.) A fiery left-hand and the charm of an alley cat, Johnny mixes the vibes of Stevie Ray and Tom Waits, with a little overdrive and a lot of moxie. […]

Ralph Renna told me to get bent the other day. I figured he was pissed at me, but we he texted me ‘get Bendt…” I did just that; I got Bendt. Describing themselves as ‘a face of modern rock,’ Bendt delivers a sound with a smile, gaining a following and carving its own niche in […]

2018 started off as a promising year. I was working for a radio station that I was programming, sales were coming in and the future looked bright. Then the Empire crumbled. By April, everything I had worked for since June 2017 had ceased to exist. What do I do now? Drink? Ok, a little. Get […]

If you’ve kicked your shoes off for the day, and the beer in the fridge is a quick second from being in your hand ‘cause it’s five o’clock somewhere and you want to hit that spot in your ears as well as your belly, the Tom Atkins Band’s got a jam for you. Frontman and […]

We’ve decided to give the bands a little holiday break from all of our probing questions. But we haven’t forgotten about you. I wrote this last year, but I figured I’d dig it up for you all. Enjoy, tip your waitstaff. Santa’s trying Keto this year. Merry Christmas! She slept through the sound of him […]

One of the cool parts of doing interviews for RadioRadioX is that I’m finding all kinds of great music for my lawless joyrides. And as I daydream of launching Molotov cocktails at polite society, I hope that Ike’ Wasted World will be on rotation. Hard-driving and in-your-face, Ike’s Wasted World is fronted by Eric Joseph […]

One thing I’m learning from doing interviews is that you come up with lots of good questions that you don’t want to repeat, because every question is a fragile little gem, then you get a band that makes you dust out the best of those questions and beat them into service. Meet Brick by Brick. […]

Sometimes you just want a good old-fashioned hard-driving garage rock band to get the liquor flowing, the tongues wagging and the boogey pumping through the floor with the high-hat hiss and the bass thumps. Blackcat Elliot is just such a band. With Gus on Guitar and Vocals, Marky Balboa on drums and Fast Eddie on […]

At the General Store down the river, go about five miles south past the last Cow Crossing sign, where the trucks in the lot all have mud finishes and if they don’t sell it, you just don’t need it, and you might just find Big Frank and the Bargain Bingers kickstarting Judgment Day. With Frank […]
