ERIN<br />

Meet this month’s Goddess, Erin Bloomberg,<br />

In her own words …<br />

“I’m 25 years old and am a midwest girl at heart, born and raised in Iowa. I moved to Florida with<br />

a vision of modeling just last year and NEVER expected what awesome opportunities awaited me!<br />

I was blessed to sign with an amazing Agency, walked in my first Miami Swim Week along with<br />

a few other runway shows, traveled more this past year then I ever have in my life, and started a<br />

career modeling for HSN as the cherry on top. Attention has always been my drug, just ask my<br />

mother (haha).”<br />

“My goal in life is to be one of those people who are just Light, who can put a smile on anyone’s<br />

face that I meet, and have a positive impact on their day in some way. I’m usually a total goof,<br />

always smiling, and a girl’s girl. On a normal day you can catch me eating breakfast (at any time,<br />

because breakfast food is the best food), working out with my boyfriend who’s conveniently a<br />

personal trainer, snapping a few pics for the gram, and always jamming out to some good tunes.<br />

My favorite artist right now is Halsey or Lady Gaga mainly because I love her in “A Star Is Born” with<br />

Bradley Cooper. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a must!”<br />

A Valentine’s Day FielD Guide<br />

to Love Songs<br />

By Rick de Yampert<br />

The wisest love song ever written, and perhaps the<br />

greatest love song ever penned, is “Brown Penny” by<br />

the Irish poet William Butler Yeats: “O love is the crooked<br />

thing. There is nobody wise enough to find out all that<br />

is in it, for he would be thinking of love till the stars had<br />

run away and the shadows eaten the moon. Ah, penny,<br />

brown penny, brown penny, one cannot begin it too<br />

soon.” By the way, this Yeats poem qualifies as a song because<br />

singer-guitarist Douglas Lee Saum put it to music<br />

along with a gazillion other Yeats poems.<br />

The second wisest love song ever crafted is “Bitter Pill for<br />

St. Valentine” by Central Florida roots-a-billy singer-guitarist<br />

Lauris Vidal. Key lyric: “Love will fuck you up!”<br />

Speaking of St. Valentine, his day is coming up. So, as a<br />

public service, I offer this Valentine’s Day field guide to<br />

love songs. Guys, pay attention! Don’t let Cupid make you<br />

look stupid by enticing you to put on the wrong romantic<br />

soundtrack as you snuggle up with your honey. Yeah, you<br />

think that little bastard is on your side, but remember:<br />

He’s a pudgy, juvenile cherub with a bow and arrow! Trust<br />

his aim at your own peril!<br />

“Hey dude, I got this!” you say. Oh?<br />

* Lesson No. 1: Listen to the lyrics of a song – ALL of them.<br />

When a friend got married some years ago, he asked me<br />

to perform Gordon Lightfoot’s “If You Could Read My<br />

Mind” on my guitar at his wedding. I was gobsmacked. He<br />

might as well have asked me to perform Slayer’s “Dead<br />

Skin Mask.” I gather my friend had not paid attention to<br />

the part where ol’ Gord sings, “I don’t know where we<br />

went wrong but the feeling’s gone and I just can’t get it<br />

back.” I sort of felt if I divulged the true nature of Lightfoot’s<br />

hit song, then it might jinx my friend’s wedding. So,<br />

I begged off by saying the song was beyond my abilities.<br />

Footnote: My friend and his wife got divorced three years<br />

later. True story.<br />

* Lesson No. 2: Beware any song that may become “our<br />

song” for you and your mate.<br />

If you’re in a romantic relationship for any length of time,<br />

sooner or later you and your beloved will hear that song<br />

on the radio or your iPod rotation for the umpteenth<br />

time, and you will suddenly realize, “Hey, that’s our song!”<br />

Usually an “our song” will choose you and your partner,<br />

and kismet will allow you no say in the matter: You<br />

inadvertently hear a song at a key moment during your<br />

relationship, like the first time you each eat off the same<br />

French fry, and bam! – Ava Max’s “Sweet but Psycho” is<br />

what you’ll be playing 40 years from now at your anniversary<br />

party.<br />

That’s why the first time I get horizontal with a woman, I<br />

always make sure all sound sources are off – lest, say, Slayer’s<br />

“Dead Skin Mask” comes on and marks the occasion<br />

like a dog whizzing on a fire hydrant. Yeah, you think you<br />

can alter “our song” dynamics and maneuver a more suitable,<br />

utterly romantic ditty into that lofty position, but it<br />

doesn’t work that way. Radio programmers call old songs<br />

“memory markers” for a reason. An “our song” candidate<br />

will glom onto you like face-eating zombies.<br />

* Lesson No. 3: Guys, do not give any Bob Dylan recording<br />

to your lady for Cupid Day. Yes, “If Not for You” is a great<br />

love song, but opt for the George Harrison version. Bob<br />

Dylan singing a love song is like Woody Allen playing a<br />

romantic lead in one of his movies. Ditto Lil’ Wayne.<br />

* Lesson No. 4: Guys, do not give a recording by ANY hot<br />

female singer to your lady as a Valentine gift, even if said<br />

chick singer is your girlfriend’s favorite. Your lady WILL<br />

think you have the hots for the babe-alicious pop-tart<br />

singer.<br />

* Lesson No. 5: Ladies, if your guy hints that he wants<br />

“Dead Skin Mask” as a Cupid Day soundtrack, run. Fast.<br />

Article and photos © Les Kippel<br />

We all know that phrase from The Wizard of<br />

Oz, and I bet we have all used it in our lives to<br />

describe someone who did something....<br />

But, there are so many ‘men behind the curtain’<br />

that we never really acknowledge for the<br />

influence they have had in our daily lives.<br />

I’ve used this opening paragraph before, but<br />

now we make a left turn....<br />

I was lucky to be in the right places at the<br />

right times.<br />

Yes, I knew Robert Hunter. I met him probably<br />

in the mid-1970s era backstage at some<br />

random Grateful Dead Concert.<br />

The expression was “If you remember the<br />

1970s you weren’t there”. Well, I was there<br />

and I don’t remember a lot! But, I remember<br />

being backstage, and sitting next to Robert<br />

Hunter. I had never met him before and had<br />

no idea what he looked like ... hey, no internet<br />

and no iphones then.<br />

In our hanging together, he asked me “Do<br />

you know who I am?”. Somewhere in my<br />

brain, I said “YES, you are Robert Hunter”. I<br />

probably amazed him ... and we became<br />

friends.<br />

Even though he wasn’t an influence on me in<br />

the formation of The First Free Underground<br />

Grateful Dead Tape Exchange nor Dead Relix<br />

<strong>Magazine</strong>, he was influential in what we did<br />

and who we were.<br />

We visited him at his home. We were friends.<br />

static-magazine-template Feb 19.indd 6<br />

<strong>2019</strong>-01-28 1:26:07 PM

I remember hanging with him backstage at a<br />

club in Roslyn, NY called “My Father’s Place”,<br />

I believe 1978. We were talking about drinks.<br />

He said “I don’t like Pina Colada, but just saying<br />

it ... it rolls off your tongue - Piinaa Coolladaaa”.<br />

He goes on stage, says “Pina Colada”,<br />

ten people run to the bar and the front of the<br />

stage is lined up with glasses. Oh! How his<br />

band loved him that night!<br />

In 1981, Robert Hunter was just returning<br />

from living in England. While he was in England,<br />

he recorded a record called Jack O’<br />

Roses. He stayed at my house in Brooklyn, NY<br />

(upstairs from the offices of Relix <strong>Magazine</strong><br />

on East 37 Street off of Kings Highway).<br />

Robert, very nonchalantly, said to me “Hey<br />

Les, why don’t you start a record company<br />

and put out my record?”. SURE!! Why not?<br />

So, Relix Records was created. Robert was<br />

our first artist. In total, Relix Records put out<br />

six of his solo projects and he appeared on<br />

any number of Relix compilations and Bay<br />

Rock Radio Shows.<br />

But, that is the smallest part of the Robert<br />

Hunter story. A very gentle and humble personality,<br />

Robert has written over 70 songs for<br />

the Grateful Dead, as well as songs for others<br />

besides the Grateful Dead.<br />

We might think that when we are listening<br />

to “Box of Rain”. “Direwolf”, “He’s Gone”, “Ship<br />

of Fools”, “Uncle Johns Band”, or even “Ripple”<br />

we might think Jerry or Bobby is singing their<br />

lyrics to us and sending us a message, but it<br />

is not them! It is Robert Hunter. These are<br />

his words and his messages to us to listen to,<br />

learn from and use as ‘words to live by’.<br />

Yes, I listen to the Grateful Dead every day,<br />

but I am really listening to Robert Hunter...<br />

We all are ... He Da Man!!<br />

The Swamp Sistas Look Forward to Spring <strong>2019</strong><br />

Every year has dates that we all anticipate. A few big ones rise<br />

above of the fray of daily routine and looking forward to them<br />

gets us through lusterless days. When we’re young, the lucrative<br />

holidays hold our attention, because those are the ones<br />

that come with gifts and cake. As we get older, we find ourselves<br />

anticipating certain dates for different reasons - the joy<br />

of gathering with friends and family, sharing stories, enjoying<br />

good music, drink and food and, of course, lots of love.<br />

We are the Swamp Sistas, a group of creative women who believe<br />

that, working together, we can make a positive difference<br />

in our community, and we are hosting some events this spring<br />

that will provide all of the benefits listed above and the joy of<br />

giving, too. We are terribly excited about all of them and they<br />

will culminate on the date we’re anticipating the most, Saturday,<br />

May 18, when we present our 8th annual Swamp Sistas La<br />

La at the Orlando Fringe Festival Outdoor Stage in Loch Haven<br />

Park.<br />

by Beth McKee and Amy Robbins<br />

and Chef-winemaker Jamie McFadden (Cuisiniers Catering and<br />

Snowbirds Vintners) who have both made it a mission to give<br />

back to the community whenever they can. All the proceeds<br />

from the brunch will go directly to Second Harvest Food Bank<br />

of Central Florida as part of our La La Summer Hope fund raising<br />

effort.<br />

The Swamp Sistas performance ensemble, consisting of founder-leader<br />

Beth McKee, Gailanne Amundsen, Amy Robbins,<br />

Renee Arozqueta and Hannah Harber will perform an acoustic<br />

set for guests as they dine, family style, at large tables for a $75<br />

donation per plate. Of course we hope those that can afford<br />

to will chip in more. We are very much looking forward to the<br />

brunch which will most likely sell out very quickly.<br />

As we’ve described in this space previously (and maybe you<br />

missed it) “La La” is a Creole term for a party that also serves a<br />

community purpose, and that is exactly what happens when<br />

the Swamp Sistas gather to present a day’s worth of performances<br />

and raise money to help Second Harvest Food Bank of<br />

Central Florida feed hungry kids over the summer months.<br />

Because we want it to be accessible to everyone, the Swamp<br />

Sistas La La is free to attend, we will collect donations that day<br />

and during the weeks prior to it, with our La La Summer Hope<br />

fund drive, making it easy for folks to give what they can afford<br />

to give, online and in person.<br />

On Sunday, March 24, we will prelude the La La and initiate the<br />

spirit of giving when we present our first ever La La Summer<br />

Hope Spring Brunch at Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts in Winter<br />

Park. Cookbook co-authors Heather McPherson and Pam<br />

Brandon, two Swamp Sistas at the forefront of Central Florida’s<br />

burgeoning food scene, are coordinating the brunch with<br />

James Beard nominee, Chef Kathleen Blake (the Rusty Spoon)<br />

There are other exciting events that we are hosting as part<br />

of our La La Season. On one Wednesday night in late April or<br />

early May (TBD) we will invite friends and family to join us for<br />

a volunteer jam at the Food Bank, where we will sort and box<br />

donated food items then celebrate with snacks and music by<br />

some of our singer-songwriter Sistas. On the week before the<br />

La La, we’ll present a warm up concert at a local venue as a<br />

teaser for the big event. Don’t worry, we’ll share information<br />

about these gatherings, and more, in upcoming columns, but<br />

for now we want to make sure you mark your calendar for the<br />

La La on May 18th, and the brunch on March 24. We also want<br />

to spread the word that we are excited about what Spring <strong>2019</strong><br />

holds for us and for the good we can accomplish right here in<br />

Central Florida.<br />

Wayne Miller Tribute<br />

By © Hank Harrison<br />

On May 22, 2013, at the age of 94, Wayne Miller, one<br />

of the greatest photographers in American history,<br />

passed away at his home in Orinda California. For<br />

decades, Miller photographed the human condition,<br />

mostly in black and white. He also loved jazz, blues,<br />

and rock and roll especially when all three idioms<br />

came together.<br />

This guy was so far ahead of his time it was ridiculous.<br />

He came to interview me for an hour one day<br />

in 1967 for the LSD rescue project, and we became<br />

close friends; we even went on assignments together.<br />

If I know anything about photography it came<br />

from Wayne Miller, who learned a lot from his guru<br />

Edward Steichen, so how lucky can one idiot be?<br />

I miss Wayne, but at least he left behind an entire<br />

library of unbelievable pics. The most famous of<br />

which was the first pictures ever taken of live birth,<br />

pictures now common, but unprecedented in the<br />

early 1960s.<br />

The first thing I learned from Wayne was to avoid<br />

looking like a “Camera Nazi,” he didn’t even have<br />

a camera, at least not one visible to the naked<br />

eye. When I asked him, “Where’s your camera?” he<br />

reached into the pocket of his military field jacket<br />

and pulled out a 50mm Pentax with no lens cap,<br />

brandished it, and said, “right here.” Later we talked<br />

about that, and Wayne told me, “Good pictures are<br />

taken by the human eye, no camera can improve on<br />

a bad eye, but a good eye can take good pictures<br />

with a bad camera.”<br />

Miller was one of a handful of photographers selected<br />

to be a part of Edward Steichen’s elite naval<br />

combat photographic unit in World War II, a group<br />

that pumped out some astonishing war pictures for<br />

Life magazine. The beginning of Miller’s professional<br />

career brought him to the front lines, but after<br />

the war, he went on to photograph Hiroshima and<br />

Pearl Harbor in heroic visions.<br />

After the war, Miller went back to his old school<br />

stomping grounds and began documented the<br />

South Side of Chicago and its blues scene, not just<br />

the music, but the life, both rich and poor, resulting<br />

in a classic hardback book, which is still in print.<br />

over 4 million copies. Now some of Millers pictures<br />

are selling for $2000 each for original prints.<br />

He never stopped shooting and taking assignments<br />

and did work for magazines such as Newsweek,<br />

National Geographic, and Smithsonian until he got<br />

too old to focus the camera.<br />

I learned a lot from him.<br />

In the early 1960s, and again working with Edward<br />

Steichen, Miller helped produce The famed Family<br />

of Man project: a photographic book based on the<br />

Museum of Modern Art exhibit which ran for almost<br />

a decade. The exhibit — which sought to show the<br />

similarities between people from all over the world<br />

— was seen by over 9 million people at MOMA between<br />

1955 and 1962, and the resulting book sold<br />

On theBlock By Jenny McLain<br />

While trying to settle on a topic for my article<br />

this month, I was contemplating a list of some<br />

sort – top singles of 2018, top albums of 2018,<br />

perhaps a list of artists we lost in 2018 … and<br />

then I remembered a conversation I had with<br />

someone after Roy Clark passed away. How<br />

many of us only knew the goofy Hee Haw guy<br />

and not the great musician he was? I heard<br />

someone ask, “Who was Roy Clark?” and after<br />

someone else said, “Hee Haw” they immediately<br />

knew who he was, although they didn’t recognize<br />

him by name. He was, in fact, a quite highly<br />

regarded and renowned guitarist, banjo player<br />

and fiddler. His autobiography “My Life in Spite<br />

of Myself” was published in 1994.<br />

Another passing came to mind, though. This<br />

man is probably responsible for many of us<br />

getting through a test or two in school at some<br />

point in time, yet very few would have even<br />

known his name. I’m referring to Bob Dorough<br />

– the man behind “Schoolhouse Rock”. In 1969,<br />

Bob Dorough was asked by advertiser David<br />

McCall to put multiplication tables to music and<br />

“Three is a Magic Number” was the result, which<br />

landed him the job of the music director for the<br />

series. Dorough wrote all the songs for Multiplication<br />

Rock, the first of six subject areas for<br />

Schoolhouse Rock and he contributed songs and<br />

performances to the five subjects that followed<br />

(Grammar Rock, America Rock, Science Rock,<br />

Money Rock and Earth Rock).<br />

Robert Lrod Dorough was born in Arkansas on<br />

December 12, 1923 and grew up in Texas. He<br />

passed away at the age of 94 on April 23, 2018<br />

at his home in Pennsylvania. Bob’s first piano<br />

lessons came about when his father let the<br />

piano teacher catch up on her bread delivery<br />

payments by giving lessons to his son, who<br />

loved to sing songs he learned from the radio.<br />

He began his career as a musician and composer<br />

in the Army. He was once hired by Sugar Ray<br />

Robinson, who had taken a break from boxing to<br />

pursue music; he co-wrote a top-40 hit (Comin’<br />

Home Baby) for Mel Tormé and has the distinction<br />

of being one of few musicians with a vocal<br />

performance on a Miles Davis record.<br />

With all of his accomplishments, though, all I<br />

can think of is “Three is a Magic Number”, “Figure<br />

Eight” and “Naughty Number Nine”, along with<br />

all of the Schoolhouse Rock tunes that helped<br />

me remember more things than any lecture or<br />

school book ever did. In my day, my brothers<br />

and I would see Schoolhouse Rock during Saturday<br />

morning cartoons while reading the back of<br />

a cereal box and waiting for wrestling to come<br />

on TV.<br />

So, thank you, Mr. Dorough, for lending your<br />

considerable talent to helping children of my<br />

generation (and hopefully many more to come)<br />

remember their “times tables” and so many other<br />

things that got us through school days, when<br />

you actually had to go to school.<br />

Johnny Cash - An American Legend<br />

By Reluctant Genius<br />

When one mentions words like iconic or legendary<br />

in the music business the A-list is and will forever<br />

be a very small one. Whether a band or a solo act,<br />

truth be told there are probably only about 25 to<br />

50 artists so far in history that truly outshine the<br />

others. It’s sad to know that most of these artists<br />

have reached their pinnacle because of the ability to<br />

share feelings of anger or sorrow or pain that dwell<br />

within their heart, or perhaps even the darker emotions<br />

coming from the unchained demons within<br />

their very soul. It’s funny how we crave the songs of<br />

sorrow and sadness, wishing to cry and sing along<br />

with them. Great art comes from great emotions,<br />

good or bad<br />

Considering all these scenarios, especially the dark<br />

side, Johnny Cash would undoubtedly rank within<br />

the top 5.<br />

The first real punk rocker of his generation, Johnny<br />

Cash challenged and changed everything about the<br />

music industry. His reckless abandon and amazing<br />

talent created a lifestyle that still seems “Rock Star”<br />

to this day. It was a time when the blues had morphed<br />

with southern gospel that started the creation<br />

of country music. While many tried to copy others,<br />

Cash trail-blazed a way of his own creation; not only<br />

new music, but a new genre of music.<br />

There of been several books and movies written or<br />

filmed about this man’s life but his good and bad<br />

never defined him and he will be always remembered<br />

as one of a kind. Here’s just a brief history of<br />

what Johnny Cash accomplished as a singer songwriter:<br />

Johnny Cash, born J.R. Cash on <strong>February</strong> 26, 1932,<br />

was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor,<br />

and author. He died on September 12, 2003. Cash<br />

is one of the most popular and best selling music<br />

artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million<br />

records worldwide. Although primarily remembered<br />

as a country music icon, his genre-spanning songs<br />

and sound embraced rock and roll, rockabilly, blues,<br />

CASH<br />

The man in<br />

black...<br />

Cash was known for his deep, calm voice that was<br />

a mixture of bass and baritone. His backing band,<br />

Tennessee Three, had a distinctive sound characterized<br />

by train-sound guitar rhythms. Johnny’s<br />

rebelliousness, coupled with an increasingly somber<br />

and humble demeanor, free prison concerts, and his<br />

trademark all-black stage wardrobe earned him the<br />

nickname “The Man in Black.” He traditionally began<br />

his concerts by simply introducing himself, “Hello, I’m<br />

Johnny Cash,” followed by his signature song “Folsom<br />

Prison Blues”.<br />

During the last part of his career, Cash covered songs<br />

by several late 20th-century rock artists, notably<br />

“Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails and “Rusty Cage” by Soundgarden.<br />

There is no doubting the legend of Johnny Cash, but<br />

whether he ranks as the best ever will most likely be<br />

debated forever. One thing is for sure; he was never<br />

boring and, even better, never fake.<br />

Much of Cash’s music contained themes of sorrow,<br />

moral tribulation, and redemption, especially in<br />

the later stages of his life .His other signature songs<br />

include “I Walk the Line”, “Ring of Fire”, “Get Rhythm”,<br />

and “Man in Black”. He also recorded humorous numbers<br />

like “One Piece at a Time” and “A Boy Named<br />

Sue”; a duet with his future wife, June Carter, called<br />

“Jackson” (followed by many further duets after their<br />

wedding); and railroad songs including “Hey, Porter”,<br />

“Orange Blossom Special”, and “Rock Island Line”.<br />

Before the Gig…<br />

Well, the big show is Friday and I have a few days so … no<br />

biggie. I better look up those lyrics for the cover songs<br />

online though. Easy to find but harder to memorize.<br />

When I mess up the words live, no one notices anyway.<br />

Trust me, the rare one who catches a mistake is happy to<br />

let me know. When I can’t remember the words I find it<br />

an art form to make them up on the spot like a free flow<br />

rapper. What freaks me out is sometimes people in the<br />

crowd singing along. I haven’t resorted to a music stand<br />

or lyric pad, which seems to me to be very amateurish.<br />

You see some form of cheat sheets a lot at open mic<br />

night.<br />

Oops, better cram! Just booked two more shows for the<br />

weekend. One is for an island themed party to fight the<br />

chill of winter; the other is a classical guitar gig. When<br />

you ply your trade as a musician, you gotta stay nimble.<br />

I’ll work up some calypso later but I’ll get right to work<br />

brushing up my chops on nylon string guitar for the<br />

wedding. Any fool with some time and a $10 guitar can<br />

jangle out some chords but when it come to right hand,<br />

finger style will challenge us all. I start with some Mateo<br />

Carcassi, the 19th century master whose etudes are<br />

still on-point. This reveals a weakness in my ring finger<br />

that I fix with more arpeggios by Mario Giuliani, another<br />

classical icon of the guitar. In fact, he was not unlike Jimi<br />

Hendrix in his era and I’m surprised that guitarists who<br />

know the music of 1960 are so unfamiliar with the guitar<br />

heroes of 1860.<br />

by Adam Floyd<br />

Of course, the bride wants the Pachabel “Cannon” and<br />

I’ve found a nice arrangement. Sounds plush and I know<br />

she’ll love it. She wants me to select the rest of the music,<br />

which is no problem Thirty minutes of seating music and<br />

something lively for the rice gauntlet. It turns out to be<br />

a theme wedding. They want me to use an ornate music<br />

stand so I guess I won’t have to memorize the classical<br />

stuff after all<br />

Now for the island music. The chords are a breeze but<br />

to nail the style of melodic treatment is tricky. On the<br />

beat, off the beat, before and all around the beat. My<br />

friend who is actually FROM the islands tells me that all<br />

American reggae is a travesty, which I keep in mind as I<br />

try Marley’s “Redemption Song”. You have to love the way<br />

our island neighbors go easy on the consonants. So nice<br />

to hear them talk, but hard to copy. As they say, “everyting<br />

gon be awryght”.<br />

With all the extra gigs I won’t have time to work on my<br />

own Mr. Holland’s Opus. Friday I nap until late for the<br />

weekend madness. It starts off with a bang. The bass<br />

player needs to be bailed out of jail, the guy who borrowed<br />

my amp isn’t responding and my truck has a flat.<br />

Kinda hard to have sensitive fingers after changing a tire.<br />

Also, no time for final lyric work. The good news is, it’s<br />

only nine and gig isn’t until ten so … no biggie.<br />

Play What You CAN Play<br />

By Rob Jenkins<br />

I had the opportunity to speak to a legendary<br />

drummer recently, Stan Lynch of Tom Petty and the<br />

Heartbreakers fame. Of course I wanted to pick his<br />

brain on what it’s like to be in a successful rock band.<br />

Although in some circles my beloved rock ‘n’ roll<br />

seems to be dead or dying, the principles he shared<br />

with me in our brief conversation are applicable to<br />

any group of musicians playing together no matter<br />

the genre. One thing that really impacted me with<br />

his statement that we should play what we can play,<br />

not what we wish we could play. This statement is<br />

true and seems obvious, but how many of us have<br />

gotten bogged down in this business of trying to<br />

play above our paygrade? Admittedly, when I was a<br />

younger man in garage bands I almost thought of<br />

it as a personal challenge to write parts that others<br />

would find difficult to play. It was almost as if I<br />

wanted to prove I was good. The only problem with<br />

this mentality is that if it’s difficult for others to play<br />

it’s sometimes difficult for you to play. As I thought<br />

about this, I realized that we are not at our best<br />

every day. Some days we don’t feel 100%, we may be<br />

fatigued. In a touring band, we may be road weary.<br />

This got me thinking.<br />

During shows where I was particularly stressed or<br />

tired, I always appreciated when a song was on the<br />

set list where I could excel even if I wasn’t at my best.<br />

What if we could plan this going in? If our ability as a<br />

player was at and eight, what if we purposely wrote<br />

our parts to be at a six?<br />

What if we set ourselves up for success during the<br />

writing process? Stan’s philosophy is to come up<br />

with the right part that serves the song, but is also<br />

achievable so that you can hit it out of the park every<br />

time. Sure, you may not be showing off as much, but<br />

I would argue that consistency is better than being<br />

impressive. What can you do to simplify your part<br />

of the song for the benefit of the band and for your<br />

own ability? I heard a musician say one time “I’ve<br />

never been able to play the song perfectly since I<br />

wrote it“. While that may seem impressive and transparent<br />

to some, perhaps we should write parts and<br />

songs that we can always execute well. I think in the<br />

end this is the more impressive feat. Thank you, Stan,<br />

for being willing to give some great advice to a genuine<br />

fan. Moving forward this will no doubt affect<br />

the way I play. Hopefully, it will impact you as well.<br />

Now get out there and make some great music!<br />

Music plays such an integral part in our everyday<br />

lives and in how we retain the memories we make<br />

throughout a lifetime. It also plays a big part in connecting<br />

people in healing ways. Recently someone<br />

close to me was given the diagnosis of early onset<br />

Alzheimer’s. Because of this I attended a local seminar<br />

on Alzheimer’s and other types of Dementia led<br />

by the insightful Doctor of Nursing Science, Ann M.<br />

Mayo. Afterwards a bunch of us privately discussed<br />

the role of caregivers and music therapy for patients<br />

and families facing this disease. This event led me to<br />

do my own investigating into how I, as a caregiver<br />

and a musician, can better use music in my home<br />

and community to stimulate brain functioning and a<br />

sense of well being in myself, patients and caregivers<br />

alike. In my research I found a recent study by neuroscientist<br />

Linda McGuire on the cognitive and physiological<br />

responses of Alzheimer’s patients to music.<br />

Although a decline in brain function and memory<br />

loss are often symptoms of dementia, most patients<br />

in her study demonstrated a remarkable ability to<br />

remember lyrics and melodies of popular songs from<br />

their past such as “Somewhere over the Rainbow”,<br />

“When you wish Upon a Star” as well as tunes from<br />

various musicals like “The Sound of Music” and “Oklahoma”.<br />

According to her 4 month study involving singing<br />

sessions with patients at an east coast care facility,<br />

she wrote, “Musical aptitude and music appreciation<br />

are two of the last remaining abilities in patients with<br />

Alzheimer’s.” Upon learning this gem, I’ve been contemplating<br />

ways to utilize this knowledge to the best<br />

of my ability in my caregiving services and in my<br />

own self care. The study also suggested that the act<br />

of using one’s voice to sing along to familiar songs<br />

(more so than just listening to music alone) can have<br />

real benefits, both emotionally and behaviorally, on<br />

patients and caregivers alike. When singing, listening<br />

and visuals are all employed, patients experience the<br />

gestalt of exercising more brain functions than usual<br />

at one time. This has proven to elevate mood, raise<br />

confidence and orientation levels, and create positive<br />

interactions that are felt by everyone involved.<br />

Jane Flynn, a colleague of McGuire’s, stated that the<br />

act of listening sparked activity on the temporal lobe<br />

on the right-hand side of the brain, and singing led<br />

to more activity in the left-hand side, while watching<br />

the class activated the visual areas of the brain. One<br />

of the reasons McGuire and Flynn both believe that<br />

music can often reach beyond dementia and revive<br />

connections between a patient and their loved<br />

ones is because those key areas of the brain that are<br />

linked to musical memory are relatively undamaged<br />

by the disease. Anecdotal evidence also shows us<br />

that music definitively evokes emotion, and emotion<br />

can bring memories to mind.<br />

In my time as an entertainer I have seen how music<br />

brings back the feelings of life the way nothing else<br />

can. In my experiments with healing my own chronic<br />

pain issues, I have found that introducing music to<br />

everyday activities, making up little ditties to get<br />

me through the rough patches and singing my daily<br />

affirmations out loud to myself has often helped<br />

me shift from a sour mood to a joyous state in mere<br />

minutes. Perhaps caregivers can elevate their own<br />

experience and help their patients by adding some<br />

musical exercises into their day to day activities. The<br />

Introduction of music may even help develop<br />

personal rhythms between caregiver and<br />

patient that bring memory recall to certain<br />

repetitive daily tasks. If nothing else, it may<br />

just make the overall atmosphere a little<br />

more lively and joyful for everybody.<br />

<strong>2019</strong>-01-28 1:27:02 PM

“A friend is someone who knows the song in<br />

your heart and can sing it back to you when you<br />

have forgotten the words.” -Anonymous<br />

Over time this may even help improve the cognitive<br />

ability of patients. The Alzheimer’s Foundation<br />

of America says that, “When used appropriately,<br />

music can shift mood, manage stress-induced<br />

agitation, stimulate positive interactions, facilitate<br />

cognitive function and coordinate motor movements.<br />

This happens because rhythmic and other<br />

well-rehearsed responses require little to no mental<br />

processing.” Since sing alongs and music appreciation<br />

does not require the same kind of cognitive<br />

functioning for success and are extremely cost<br />

effective, here are some easy suggestions on how<br />

to implement the use of music into yours and your<br />

loved ones daily care routine.<br />

1. Make playlists for your loved ones. What kind<br />

of music do they enjoy? What songs evoke happy<br />

times in his or her life? YouTube has a great variety<br />

of free songs from all eras and a multitude of karaoke<br />

tracks w/ lyrics from all genres.<br />

2. When you’d like to raise the mood use more upbeat<br />

music vs when you want to soothe your loved<br />

one.<br />

3. As with small children, avoid overstimulation, use<br />

volume control and eliminate competing sounds in<br />

the environment.<br />

4. Move to the groove! Help your loved one clap to<br />

the beat, move their feet and dance with you if they<br />

are still ambulatory.<br />

5. Sing together! Encourage your loved one to not<br />

be afraid to use his/her distinct voice and create<br />

unique new memories. Try singing thru difficult<br />

activities like getting dressed or grooming in order<br />

to get in synch with each other’s rhythm.<br />

6. Be response-able. Pay attention to how your<br />

loved one responds to different kinds of music. If<br />

they react poorly to a particular type of music or<br />

song, choose something else. If they like it, play it<br />

often.<br />

7. Accentuate the positive by making up your own<br />

little affirmative songs. Do some call and response<br />

singing around the house. Just keep the humor<br />

flowing between you as often as possible and have<br />

fun with it! No one is judging you.<br />

This month’s artist was born destined for<br />

Hollywood. He was raised in New Symnra<br />

Beach and surrounding areas but it was<br />

apparent from an early age that something<br />

was different about Dekker. Like most artists,<br />

his brain seemed to wander throughout<br />

the universe in search of future endeavors<br />

that no one had thought of before. These<br />

thoughts, and a eye for detail, led him out<br />

to the West Coast to dabble in short films<br />

and commercials. This lasted for a few years.<br />

Missing family and recently married to his<br />

bride Julia, who is a brilliant artist herself,<br />

Dekker decided to give Florida another<br />

chance.<br />

The venture didn’t last long, as they were<br />

both destined for the big city life. In the<br />

short time they were in the area, Dekker<br />

created quite a stir. From having the first sushi<br />

bar on Flagler Avenue in Smyrna Beach<br />

to helping open a surf and skate shop and<br />

another restaurant, it was clear that Dekker<br />

had a true vision of things that could work.<br />

Perhaps his best idea was the “Shark Attack<br />

Roll”, which was launched the same time<br />

as a 3D shark movie that was shown in a<br />

parking lot on a huge screen for all to see.<br />

At the time, everybody made a big fuss.<br />

How dare someone glorify the fact that New<br />

Smyrna Beach was the shark bite capital of<br />

the world? He took quite a bit of flak for that<br />

ingenious idea.<br />

Nowadays, every store and shop has<br />

t-shirts, coffee mugs and bumper<br />

stickers claiming what he already<br />

knew years ago: Sharks sell!<br />

Dekker is an artist working in film, virtual<br />

and augmented reality, illustration, and<br />

books. Entrepreneur and MovieMaker<br />

<strong>Magazine</strong>s have called him a VR pioneer. His<br />

work connects technology, the supernatural,<br />

dreams and folklore; often through the<br />

lens of a contemporary or near-future world<br />

That type of vision and forward thinking led him<br />

back to Hollywood, where both he and his wife are<br />

extremely successful. Sometimes, people are meant<br />

to live life in the fast lane and have the brains and<br />

know-how to do so and still be even keeled. That is<br />

just what Dekker Dreyer does.<br />

The commercial studio he co-founded,<br />

Clever Fox, has created VR / AR / and film<br />

content for Warner Bros, Disney and other<br />

major studios. He has created with artists<br />

like Mystery Skulls, Devo, and Disturbed. His<br />

augmented reality streetwear line, semiFamous,<br />

is moving into its second season and<br />

he is a tireless advocate for emerging artists<br />

as both organizer of Slamdance DIG and<br />

as a speaker at events like The Cannes Film<br />

Festival. Dekker is the creator of Columbia<br />

Behind the Mic: Riggs<br />

Hello again, friends. It’s a great time of year to be in<br />

Daytona Beach. With Speedweeks and the Daytona<br />

500 upon us, Bike Week lurking in March, and some<br />

more frequent mind-calming trips to the beach,<br />

this is the sweet spot for me. On our daily Morning<br />

HOG radio show, we are constantly challenged by<br />

the bosses to talk about what is relatable to YOU,<br />

the listener. And short of coming to your house or<br />

grabbing a beer and shooting the shit, there’s no<br />

exact science to knowing what that relatable radio<br />

content really is. So we at The Morning HOG / 95.7<br />

The HOG try to connect with our audience through<br />

many different avenues. There is extensive research,<br />

data collection, and a tremendous amount of ratings<br />

minutiae that I won’t bore you with that leads us to<br />

knowing what may work on the air. But obviously<br />

this comes with some bad reads and failed attempts.<br />

I decided to reveal some of the segment ideas we<br />

have tried and for whatever reason, they just didn’t<br />

catch on…<br />

The 8 o’clock Donut Toss - This plan involved flinging<br />

Krispy Kremes out of our 3rd story studio window<br />

toward cars racing down International Speedway<br />

Boulevard. Passersby would get to keep the donut<br />

that landed on or in their car and redeem it for a<br />

clean one at participating locations. The idea failed<br />

for several reasons, including the lack of openable<br />

windows and ants … lots of ants. Also, police frown<br />

upon donut-related traffic snarls.<br />

30<br />

Captive Date - Lots of radio shows across the country<br />

have attempted this rather innocent idea where<br />

2 callers are connected and sent on a date… to our<br />

storage room, where they are “sequestered” for 24<br />

hours and are kept awake during their date by a series<br />

of air horn blasts every half hour. While our first<br />

couple did have an emotional connection, we had<br />

to discontinue the segment after our lawyers threw<br />

around words like “kidnapping” and “false imprisonment”.<br />

Lesson learned.<br />

- Tell Off My Boss - Another great idea taken down<br />

by unfortunate circumstances. I mean, who hasn’t<br />

wanted to speak freely to their boss, right? Well we<br />

solicited callers who wanted to tell off their boss and<br />

had Guy do it for them. This was hilarious radio until<br />

we found out one “boss” was the Sheriff. Guy apologized,<br />

but the damage was done. We made a donation<br />

and all is well now.<br />

- Find The Mustard - How frustrating is it when you<br />

are dining and can’t find the condiments? We know,<br />

VERY. So we sent Intern Steve to a local eatery, mic’d<br />

him up, and had him announce that he had taken all<br />

the mustard and that whoever finds it first gets a limited<br />

edition Morning HOG Mustard Bottle, numbered<br />

and signed by Riggs and Guy. There were scuffles<br />

and the threat of a man promising to “beat the Grey<br />

Poupon out of him”, plus the novelty of a unique<br />

morning show collectible was not as big of a draw<br />

as we thought. We got the last laugh, though, as the<br />

mustard was in Steve’s speedo the entire time!<br />

static-magazine-template Feb 19.indd 30<br />

<strong>2019</strong>-01-28 1:28:29 PM

95.7 the Hog, Daytona Beach<br />

- RIGGS’ Rapid Paternity Test - Look, there’s clearly<br />

still an audience for this stuff ‘cuz Maury Povich still<br />

has a show, right? I did a lot of Internet research and<br />

realized that helping people find answers doesn’t<br />

have to take so long, so I spent a substantial amount<br />

of slush fund cash on the chemicals and equipment.<br />

Listeners dropped their swabbed DNA in our radio<br />

station’s mailbox and we would do a weekly test<br />

and announce the results. While the segment was<br />

time-efficient for the show, it proved scientifically<br />

inaccurate and we ruined a lot of lives. My bad.<br />

- Request A Sound - We play plenty of music but<br />

not nearly enough sound effects. So this idea involved<br />

listener requests for their favorite sounds. It<br />

went smoothly for a couple weeks but our research<br />

showed after week 3 it was 87% fart sounds and a<br />

large jump in requests for silence. Message received,<br />

segment suspended.<br />

-The Morning HOG Birthday Piñata - This involved<br />

a monthly drawing from our listener database for a<br />

special delivery of the birthday piñata. We stuffed<br />

the thing with 95.7 The HOG t-shirts, stickers, candy,<br />

cash, and some beverages from our Brew Review.<br />

But paper mache is messy and difficult to get dried<br />

and hardened, so the weight of the prizes frequently<br />

broke through the HOG piñata and turned the winner’s<br />

birthday into a mess of mopping and apologies.<br />

- What Letter Is In Intern Steve’s Fanny Pack? - This<br />

segment combines listeners love for guessing the<br />

alphabet incrementally and Steve’s love of his fanny<br />

pack. Seems like a win-win, but there’s always one<br />

turd in the punch bowl who wants to argue that the<br />

Greek alphabet is alive and well… we may have to<br />

re-tool and bring this show sizzler back into rotation.<br />

Stay tuned.<br />

Velvet or Velour - We put Intern Steve on the corner<br />

of ISB and Nova Road in a tank top and kilt then had<br />

people reach under and determine if he was wearing<br />

velvet or velour trunk briefs. Again, the sensitive<br />

times we currently work in left this segment in the<br />

dust as several contestant complaints read “I’ll never<br />

be clean again” and “What’s wrong with him?”.<br />

- Riggs & Guy Pudding Bus - This plan was doomed<br />

from the start. Take a tour bus, a keg of Lagunitas,<br />

lots of metal CDs, dancers, Madden <strong>2019</strong>, inversion<br />

tables and a large inflatable pool full of vanilla pudding<br />

and you have the makings of one hell of a party.<br />

Then you hear what you didn’t want to hear…<br />

“Shit, we forgot the waivers”. Paperwork always<br />

before pudding, so the bus never left the parking<br />

lot. But don’t give up on this one either… we know<br />

a guy.<br />

If any of those happen to catch your attention or if<br />

you have something you think we should try on-air,<br />

swing by 957thehog.com and drop a note in The<br />

Morning HOG Listener Suggestion Box. We will be<br />

selecting some of your ideas each Monday and test<br />

driving them on the show. As always, reach out at<br />

BY C. August Wenger<br />

If you think starting, sustaining, or growing an original music<br />

scene in your town is difficult, let me tell you about the effort in<br />

Daytona Beach over the last 25 years. Daytona is a tourist town<br />

in a tourist state, so let’s just say for the longest time there has<br />

been a lot of Jimmy Buffet echoing the streets. And, now that<br />

Jimmy has started a retirement community in Daytona, the<br />

sounds are sure to live on here indefinitely. I digress. My point<br />

is that, between Parrot Heads and Bikers, there is a lot of cover<br />

music in Daytona, with the hotels, bars, and venues looking for<br />

that band that can crank out the radio hits to the adulation of<br />

their tourist patrons.<br />

Don’t get me wrong, business is business, and there is a place<br />

for cover bands in the music scene. Good ones deserve credit<br />

for their ability to recreate the great music of our times.<br />

However, this being an Original Music Manifesto, I’m here to lift<br />

original music to its rightful place in our communities. So, how<br />

do original acts legitimately compete with cover music and find<br />

their place in the entertainment industry of their town? The<br />

idea is simple, but the application is hard work; it takes cooperation.<br />

By the early 2000’s in Daytona, not only were we faced with the<br />

cover music monopoly, but our bands were also pitted against<br />

each other by venues and even the local radio stations. “Doing<br />

their part for the local scene”, they would offer us the Battle of<br />

the Bands, where-by the bands and their fans would compete<br />

against each other for the prize of some studio time and an opportunity<br />

to play a prime weekend spot. A “win, win” as they’d<br />

say, for all the bands that battled got “exposure”, the “best band”<br />

earned their reward, the venue got free entertainment, and the<br />

radio station got to pat itself on the back. Let me just point out<br />

that today one of our local radio stations really is doing its part<br />

for the original music scene, and I’ll be praising them in another<br />

article.<br />

At the time, in response to being shut out and being made to<br />

battle it out for opportunity, a group of musicians in town came<br />

together to form an original music alliance. It was named Home<br />

Grown Roots by long time area musician, Terry Nandlal, who<br />

resided as president of HGR for many years. I asked Terry about<br />

the beginnings of HGR.<br />

“Home Grown Roots approached a handful of venues and<br />

asked for the worst night of the month to put on an original<br />

music showcase HGR called The Jamboree. Facing social pressure,<br />

these venues reluctantly agreed. Then HGR went to every<br />

act in town and offered them a seat at the table. Some scenes<br />

that had been mutually exclusive, like metal and hip-hop, or<br />

jam band and punk, came together to support this original<br />

music showcase.” The bands, instead of performing to 20 or<br />

30 people in a warehouse, were now performing to hundreds<br />

at established venues. The venues now saw the viability of<br />

original music and soon HGR was being offered any Friday or<br />

Saturday night at venues that had previously been exclusively<br />

cover music.<br />

Since 2006, Home Grown Roots has put on over 200 mini-festival<br />

events, showcasing over 500 acts, several of which had their<br />

earliest performances with HGR, and have gone on to become<br />

regional and national acts. HGR is more of a promotional engine<br />

now as the original music scene in Daytona has become<br />

self-sustaining, with venues taking it upon themselves to not<br />

only support original music, but to pay for it. That being said,<br />

venues still want caliber music, and they need their acts to have<br />

a draw. For those acts that are still cutting their teeth and building<br />

an audience, they need a venue that welcomes anyone and<br />

anything. In Daytona, that venue is Tir na nOg Pub. Next month,<br />

I’ll tell you about the role of an all-inclusive venue in sustaining<br />

an original music culture. Thanks for reading and supporting<br />

original music at your local venue.<br />

Appetite for the Blues<br />

By Mark “Muddyharp” Hodgson<br />

Old Crow Medicine Show, “Tell It to Me”<br />

“Now won’t you tell it to me<br />

Tell it to me<br />

Drink the corn liquor let the cocaine be<br />

Cocaine’s gonna kill my honey dead<br />

All them rounders think they’re tough<br />

But they feed their women on beer and snuff<br />

Cocaine’s gonna kill my honey dead”<br />

A rounder has a few different connotations. The one in the Old<br />

Crow Medicine lyric depicts someone who sounds like a kind of<br />

a complicated character. Another definition refers to a person<br />

who “rounds the edges” on a piece of lumber. Considering the<br />

many lumber camps in Florida at the turn of the 20th century, I<br />

think it is safe to say a combination of the two definitions might<br />

be appropriate when speaking of a typical African American<br />

bluesman in Florida back in those days.<br />

“If you understand the music, you understand how much time<br />

it takes to get anywhere close to being a good player. Then you<br />

come to the reality of how you can you get people to hear you<br />

once you sound ok. Then you come to grips with the fact music<br />

is being paid for in nightclubs. You can actually make money<br />

playing music in nightclubs. One thing leads to another and<br />

after a time you are ready to make a record.”<br />

Gabriel Brown is journeyman blues artist who spent most of<br />

his time in Florida. He was born in 1910 in Gadsden County.<br />

Attended Florida A&M and in 1934 he performed at the first<br />

National Folk Festival in St. Louis, Missouri. He was discovered<br />

by folklorist Zora Neale Hurston who contacted Alan Lomax<br />

who then recorded Mr. Brown for the Library of Congress in<br />

1935. Brown’s career was varied. He was part of a Miss Hurston<br />

light Opera called “Polk County” which ran in New York City and<br />

toured with the Florida Arts Theatre under the direction of Orson<br />

Welles. His first commercial recording for Flyright Records<br />

in 1943, showed Mr. Brown in a variety of styles. He was known<br />

as a songster defined by the influences and alternate picking<br />

Piedmont style of guitar playing and vocals. The Piedmont style<br />

leans more toward Jimmie Rodgers (the singing brakeman),<br />

than say, Son House.<br />

Mr. Brown disliked performing nightclubs. “Too many rounders<br />

and things going on in them night spots. They don’t care<br />

about no music ‘cept if it helps somebody get over.” I did have<br />

a guy showed me some chords on the guitar. Just give him a<br />

taste of gin and he would be all mellow and patient and show<br />

me things, he helped me a lot. Most them old timers knew the<br />

blues... just give ‘em a little taste!”<br />

I like Gabriel Brown. I think, even though he never became a<br />

big star, he kept it together in his real life and his music was<br />

more Florida because of all the influences in his sound. He<br />

could lay down 12 Bar blues all night long but he also sang<br />

‘hits’. This is his strength. Gabriel Brown was a real Florida bluesman.<br />

Florida isn’t Mississippi. The Mississippi River, it’s delta and<br />

tributaries are unique. The music that comes out of that entire<br />

region could not be made anywhere else. The Florida state of<br />

mind is transitory and adaptive. Florida naturally absorbs and<br />

redistributes all the energy it receives. So, many different type<br />

of people end up here as did the blues which found its way to<br />

Florida as a transplant from someone looking for a better life.<br />

“I’m a rake and a rambler and an old time rounder too<br />

I can tell tales to ladies and I can sing the blues for you<br />

I don’t know where I’m heading but I can tell you where I’ve<br />

been<br />

I’ve been down to Florida just to see an old friend.”.....-1924<br />

Snoop Dogg is one of the best rappers of all time. Fo Shizzle.<br />

The Doggfather has a cosmic flow and swagger with over 50<br />

million albums sold to back it on up. Snoop most notoriously<br />

inspired the masses to drink well with his smash hit Gin & Juice.<br />

A badass, rebellious rap song about drinking, smoking pot and<br />

having a good time. The iconic chorus “Rollin’ down the street<br />

smokin’ indo, Sippin’ on gin and juice, Laid back (with my mind<br />

on my money and my money on my mind)” is an internationally<br />

known tune. Play that in a packed bar and I’d bet you a cold<br />

drink you’d see more then half the crowd singing along. Gin &<br />

Juice was the second single off certified quadruple platinum<br />

album “Doggystyle” released in 1994. The song reached the top<br />

ten on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States and in 1995<br />

it was nominated for a Grammy award for best solo rap performance.<br />

A Metal Year to Look Forward to !<br />

2018 was certainly a great year for metal releases, as well as for Florida showcasing acts from around the globe. Now<br />

that we are well on our way into <strong>2019</strong> there seems to be a lot on the horizon with all styles of Metal and such in our<br />

grasp this coming year. 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise kicks off the year with a bang at the end of January (which I, Jeff<br />

Watson, am stoked to be going on), heavy metal greats Tesla at the House of Blues, Queensryche and Fates Warning at<br />

Plaza <strong>Live</strong>. Then the Haven bringing harder acts like Hypocrisy, Fleshgod Apocalypse , and Thrashers Flotsam and Jetsam<br />

. T.S.O.L. in Deland. Ozzy (Farewell tour maybe) with Megadeth and Slayer (sayin’ goodbye.... again with friends) at<br />

the Florida fairgrounds . Kiss’s last tour (yeah, right) and Morbid Angel with Immolation in Tampa. With that said, stock<br />

up on ear plugs and neck braces folks!<br />

New School Album of the Month<br />

Bane Esoteric Formulae<br />

Photo credit Jeff Watson<br />

Hipocrisy photo credit - Nuclear Blast Records<br />

Bane album photo credit- Black market Metal label<br />

For fans of Dissection, Behemoth, Hate etc. this album released in 2018 is a solid<br />

example of melodic blackened death forged through music. This band is by<br />

far not to be mistaken as the straight edge hardcore band Bane that shares its<br />

name. Hailing from Montreal and originally from Serbia, the band proves with<br />

these nine tracks of chaos that they have the goods. Released on Black Market<br />

Metal Label with standout tracks Beneath the Black Earth, Wretched Feast, and<br />

Reign in Chaos I suggest you pummel yourself with this album immediately.<br />

36<br />

Old School Album of the Month<br />

Evil was abound on Hypocrisy’s 1992 debut Penetralia. Founded by guitarist<br />

Peter Tagtgren and paired with vocalist Magnus Broberg’s bowel wrenching<br />

growls, Penetralia mixed early Florida style death metal with European band<br />

influences like Entombed and Dismember. With lyrics solely based on<br />

anti -Christianity and Satanism, this first outing released on Nuclear Blast<br />

Records by the legendary Swedish band has become a brutal and merciless<br />

metal classic. The<br />

album is full of double bass blasts with some creative solos and riffing. Some<br />

punishing blows to the eardrum are the tracks Impotent God, Nightmare,<br />

To Escape Is to Die, Take the Throne and title track Penetralia. Whilst listening,<br />

pray for forgiveness!<br />

Phantom Foodie<br />

I’m sorry to disappoint all of you who seem to<br />

enjoy the darkside of harsh honesty in the Phantom<br />

Foodie articles, but this month is all positive!!!<br />

If you have a suggestion for a restaurant for us<br />

to visit, please email us through our website or<br />

message us on our FaceBook page.<br />

I had passed Manny’s Pizza in New Smyrna Beach<br />

many times before I actually went in. I was with a<br />

friend who suggested we stop there for a bite one<br />

day and we have been back several times since,<br />

usually late on Sunday mornings.<br />

This place has something for everyone. As you<br />

walk in, there is an arcade area with various<br />

amusements, pinball machines, etc. (someday, I<br />

will plan to have some extra time to play pinball<br />

while I’m there). To the right at the front of the<br />

building is a bar area (which I have never experienced<br />

on a Sunday morning) and to the left is the<br />

dining room. It is<br />

simply decorated; typical diner-type interior. The<br />

restaurant and restrooms are always clean.<br />

The people are friendly and, at least late on Sunday<br />

mornings, there always seems to be a large<br />

group of regulars enjoying a meal and conversation.<br />

Every server we have encountered has been<br />

attentive and accommodating; we even had one<br />

who apologized one day because she usually<br />

works the dinner shift so she wasn’t as familiar<br />

with breakfast.<br />

Manny’s has an extensive menu, from breakfast<br />

to pizza to burgers to sandwiches and - oh, stop<br />

right there - the SANDWICHES. They don’t make<br />

the bread there (I asked) but the bread they serve<br />

sandwiches on is delicious. It has a nice, thin,<br />

crispy crust and soft interior. My favorite thing<br />

to order is the french dip sandwich; my friend<br />

likes the grinders. He has a special way he orders<br />

them, and Manny’s always gets the order right the<br />

first time. I’ve also had the hamburger, which was<br />

very good as well. The regulars seem to enjoy<br />

breakfast - french toast, omelets, bacon and eggs.<br />

On my next trip, I think I will try the pizza (although<br />

I will be sorry not to have the french dip).<br />

The prices are very reasonable and they have<br />

great specials daily.<br />

So, if you find yourself heading south in New<br />

Smyrna Beach, stop in and give Manny’s a try;<br />

they are located at 3318 S Atlantic Avenue. Grab<br />

a beer, a snack or a meal - you’ll be glad you did!<br />
