How very Christian of that church to ostracize 60 year members for loving their daughter!?!?! Why is homosexuality, one of the least mentioned subjects in the bible, always the one that the church points the finger at? I am certain there are other members in that church who have sinned in plenty of other manners (stealing, premarital sex, adultery, lust, and the list goes on and on). Could it be because their sins are not as easy to be seen? We are all sinners, even the most kind hearted and good natures of us sin, and most of us do it daily, whether consciously or unconsciously. Today, so many Christians are throwing stones, when they live in glass houses themselves. Why don't we jut let God do the judging?!?!
love the mention of california, my fav mr. bungle record. it is a classic, and i find that i listen to it over and over at various times. if you haven't heard it, or dismissed mr. bungle altogether, do yourself a favor, and get this record!!
i must say, i have listened to all of the tracks you guys listed, and the autovaughn one is just fantastically produced, the engineering is great. this is absolutely an infectious song!
this whole blog has me excited to see what else comes out on this list. i am so proud to call nashville my home, and have my whole life. i have been thinking a lot about all of the bands i have seen and played with, and the trip down memory lane has been so very pleasing. recently listened to some great bands, and wanted to give as much of a list as i could of great nashville bands... so here goes...
de novo dahl, the good gospel truth, andy bodean and the bottom boys, of course... communist... lamb chop, lone official, llama (previously, the dalia llamas), the pink spiders, spyder virus, altered statesman, flemming and john, self, del giovani clique, tim chad and sherry, the silver jews (can't believe no one has mentioned them yet!), the privates, the carter admin (from and old cassette tape release), the black cadillacs, jordan hull, all we seabees, the protomen, waked lunch, cary ann hearst (and shovels and rope), glossary, hands down eugene, the hotpipes, forget cassettes, the ocelots, six gun lullaby, the clutters, the mattoid, the non-commissioned officers, tofu nation, barefoot jerry, kings of leon, be your own pet, bobby bare and bobby bare jr, cb tucker band, the cable company, starzan and (pretty much any band josh guntel is in or has been in, same for ben martin and steve poulton), aquariums, jason and the scorchers, count bass d, gillian welch, mystic meditations, jonathan sexton and the big love choir, guy farmer, e-banditos, see three (now IIIrd class), lilly hiatt, business casual, rachel vanslyke, xilehom, tipper whore, leslie keffer, black soap, dennis shepherd group, i am the tower, canago (officially from bowling green, but they record here and play here a lot), thelma and the sleaze, the granny whites, bourbon family, nick minnow, reverse halo effect, stan vs wild, daniel harris (now in TX), jim cheney, ks rhoads (dead language is one of the most beautiful songs i have ever heard!), los straight jackets, the legendary shack shakers, old crow medicine show, the new hardwood legends, super bowl rocket ship, fluid ounces, chris crofton and the alcohol stunt band, i am sabot, anything with annie sellick, the gypsie hombres, mike ferris, ryan adams, hendersonville song company, baby stout, good people (good people of the united front, later known as the untied front), brian kotzur band, el rick haun (everyone's favorite st. patty's day band), wanda jackson (not really a nashville native, but she performs and records in nashville a lot!), and the groundlings...
i could go on and on. i know some of the bands on the list may not be exclusively rock, but they still rocked! hopefully, i have mentioned some bands you may have forgotten about, and you can take a trip down memory lane too. some of the bands have already been mentioned, and i am sure i have missed a lot of bands, so feel free to add more to the list.
enjoy rocking nashville!
hey lance, can you repost that spotify address? i don't think the whole link showed up, and i wanna listen. thanks!
anybody else think the features frontman looks kinda like vincent gallo?
OMG, i almost forgot the Brian Kotzur Band and the Good People of the United Front!
have you walked down the black label empire isle yet? they are the label that lone official started putting things out on. they have a great roster, including lots of great nashville rock bands from the late, late ninety's and early 2000's. i mean COMMUNIST... that band absolutely ruled! i was proud to be part of it for a couple of years towards the end of their run. of course BLE also hosts the Altered Statesman, the most talented "cool dude" in nashville, imho, as well as Andy Bodean and the Bottom Boys, Tim Chad and Sherry, Ultra Vulgar,and yes... me and my early work, along with several other great artists. so i have to be honest, i am so familiar with that stuff bc i was raised in the BLE scene for many years... i saw some of the early shows from a lot of those bands, and decided i HAD to start playing with those guys. those boys showed me the ropes, how to rock, how to rule, how to fail, and most importantly have fun. the Black Label Empire gang put out, and continue to put out great stuff. i am proud to be affiliated with them, to publish their material and host them in my humble studios at WaterWorks Entertainment. in short, you wanna find some real original nashville rock, the kind of rock that was rock before jack white showed up to claim nashvile's scene as his own... what the BLE have offered, simply cannot be denied.
(i guess now i'll wait for all of the, "so this should all be about you and your bands comments..." OK. if you say so, make it so.)
