If the phrase "B&L Pizza" means anything to you, so will this post, as Murfreesboro boys from back in the day return to wreak havoc. (Sorry, not Mammy Namms.) First, your attention is directed to the weekly Scene podcasts
Collin Wade Monk's been doing. My favorite part is the climactic "Fabricator" mash-up that closes every edition. The Faith Hill/Cypress Hill "collaboration" from the second one remains the cham-peen to date—can somebody get this to Gerry House?—but this week's "Big" and "Rich" track is pretty cracked.
Second, welcome 'Boro rock god and Disgraceland Records mogul Eric Nowinski back to Middle Tennessee, as his Knoxville band Angel & the Love Mongers
torches the Mercy Lounge for the insurance money Thursday night with Jeremy Lister and Autovaughn. There is no truth to the rumor that they will play Queensryche's Operation: Mindcrime
in its entirety. OK, it's a 50/50 shot.
Speaking of talents who escaped Murfreesboro, I want to hear more new stuff from this guy
. Soon. Wake up, Brooklyn, to the treasure in your midst.
