So when Roxy’s ex starts sniffing around again, Cole volunteers to play the part of her new boy-toy and things get heated both in and out of the kitchen.

SPRING AWAKENING (2015) ***1/2 out of ****
BROOKS ATKINSON THEATRE

When Deaf Theatre West came to Broadway in 2003 with its acclaimed revival of Big River, I was bummed not to get a chance to see it. Like many, I was intrigued. A deaf theater company. Doing a musical? What did that even mean, I and perhaps the clueless like me in the hearing community wondered. It sounded fascinating, to say the least. An interesting experiment. I was sorry to miss it.

Now having seen their revival of Spring Awakening on Broadway, I know exactly what I missed back in 2003: great theater. Like an all-male As You Like It or an all-female Julius Caesar, like an all-Asian Death Of A Salesman or any other such approach to the canon, these unified takes on casting or performing can offer insights both large and small, inspire staging and reveal meaning quite unexpected and refreshing. Done as a stunt, none of these approaches mean a thing. Done with purpose and artistry and a desire to find connections and inspire performances, they are revitalizing.

That’s the case here, with the doubling up of key characters underlining their isolation and inability to communicate, with signing becoming as intimate and moving as a whisper, with silence the most powerful moment in a musical filled with great numbers.

Spring Awakening left Broadway just six years ago. And its original cast — Jonathan Groff, John Gallagher Jr. and Lea Michele — left huge shoes to fill. But it’s a delight to see the story has lost none of its impact, the score and songs none of their dusky, moody impact.

Teenagers in the late 1800s of Germany feel unduly repressed. Like teenagers everywhere, they question everything and want to know everything…now! Melchior (a handsome Austin P. McKenzie) is a budding thinker who refuses to attend church and tries to console his sex-obsessed friend Moritz (a convincingly troubled Daniel N. Durant) with the facts of life. Wendla (a fresh-faced and appealing Sandra Mae Frank) simply wants to know where babies come from, something her mother (Camryn Manheim) is incapable of explaining. Hanschen (Andy Mientus, so good in the original cast of the new Les Miz) just wants to sleep with anything that moves. The school they attend –mirroring the times — insists all deaf students learn to speak instead of sign and punishes those who won’t or simply don’t gain fluency as failures. Hearing a teacher mock a student’s attempts to verbalize Latin is haunting. Their parents are dour and disapproving and demanding, when not downright abusive. It won’t end well.

Spring Awakening is a signal moment in musical theater. This is the show that made rock n roll truly belong on Broadway — not as a jukebox musical or as nostalgia or for specific shows drawn from rock albums but as a specific voice and style that earned a permanent place on the stage alongside country and folk and blues and Tin Pan Alley. It’s never left since. Spring Awakening returns just as the show’s creatives return: Steven Sater has School Of Rock later this year and Duncan Sheik has American Psycho in the spring. It should give them courage to see how vibrant and moving their breakthrough remains.

Director Michael Arden honors the original while putting his own touches on it in ways large and small, from the intertwined bodies of students that form a tree to the coup de théâtre at the end which makes use of the show’s gunmetal grey look throughout for a final breathtaking glimpse of a brighter future during the closer “”The Song Of Purple Summer.” He proves himself a director of the first order. The work of choreographer Spencer Liff and the rest of the technical team is similarly inspired.

The signing throughout is just lovely and poetic, often spreading from the person speaking to the cast as a whole, becoming as important visually as the movement or the set or the lighting.

The cast as a whole is sexy and talented, from the moment they come onstage in their underwear to dress in front of us before the beginning right to the finale where they strip back down again, emphasizing the innocent beauty of youth that has nothing to be ashamed of, whatever parents or society might say. (No wonder teenagers love this show.)

Artistically, the production is unified and strong from start to finish. Its weakness mainly comes in some vocals, normally a fatal flaw in a musical but not here. McKenzie is an appealing lead and a deeply sympathetic presence throughout. I worried he didn’t have the power to put across the climactic “Totally Fucked” but in fact McKenzie came through in stellar fashion. While Durant has the turmoil of Moritz down pat, Alex Boniello couldn’t match him as the Voice Of Moritz (and fell way short of Tony winner John Gallagher Jr. who blew the roof off with these same songs). Similarly, Kathryn Gallagher’s bluesy mama take on the Voice Of Martha failed to impress, though in this case it felt of a piece with the unsatisfying work of Treshelle Edmond. (To be fair, the role is brief and not terribly interesting, though somehow Lilli Cooper made something of it in the original.) The great Marlee Matlin simply has little to work with in several one-note adult roles.

Patrick Page and Manheim were able to make more of their various roles, thanks to the many opportunities they had to give voice to others as well. And how did this work, with one actor performing a character and another actor sometimes giving them voice in line reading or song? In general, one simply watched the performer who embodied the character, while the voice or the singing did its work. Sometimes lines appeared on screens or chalkboards, sometimes they were spoken and signed, sometimes just signed but always the visual impact was clear and the doubling or tripling of a line was clarifying and powerful, never confusing.

Both Mae Frank as Wendla and Katie Boeck worked in synergy to create an angelic, sweet but troubled Wendla, the girl who felt herself confusedly aroused by the idea of punishment. The devilishly sexy Mientus and the innocent (?) Joshua Castille had great fun in the seduction scene “The Word Of Your Body.” And the winning McKenzie (an excellent actor) made you believe Melchior would rise above this brutal start to demand a better world.

And all of this discussion of individual performances underplays the overall impact of a show that is truly conceived and performed as a unified whole, with the cast moving in concert and reinforcing dramatic scenes in powerful ways. Arden and the design team work together seamlessly, building the story element by element, overpowering the melodrama inherent in the original play with sophisticated verve, creating a second act that builds on the first right up to a finale that really is a triumph. It was like seeing Spring Awakening for the first time. Or should I say, like hearing it in a new way.

DADDY LONG LEGS ** out of ****
DAVENPORT THEATRE

Few remember Jean Webster’s epistolary novel Daddy Long Legs. It features a spunky, winning orphan a la Anne Of Green Gables and so many other tales, but somehow hasn’t retained its hold on readers. A pity, since the book is a charmer. Still, it’s endured long enough to be made into a film at least four times (including Mary Pickford, Janet Gaynor, Leslie Caron and even Shirley Temple as our heroine) and presumably adapted for the stage just as often.

Those coming to this two-hander musical fresh will find it innocuously pleasant if somehow unsatisfying when all is said and done. Those who have read the book will be more confused, wondering how the essentially bright and witty tale became so quiet and rather mournful. That shouldn’t dim the pleasure of two solid performers doing their best, namely Megan McGinnis as the orphan Jerusha and Paul Alexander Nolan as her benefactor and eventual love Jervis.

In the show, Jerusha is”The Oldest Orphan In The John Grier Home,” as McGinnis charmingly sings in the opening number. She’s 18 and quite clever, industriously helping at the dour but competent orphanage where she must depend on charity for housing or brave the cold streets alone. What more can she hope for? Quite a bit, since Jerusha now has great expectations: one of the home’s patrons has decided to send her to college. Jerusha will go to school and have everything she needs paid for (including a king’s ransom of $ 35 a month allowance — in 1909, mind you — so she can “fit in”). In return, she will never know her patron’s name but must write to him as “John Smith” once a month with a report on her progress.

Soon Jerusha is off at school, making friends and delighting in the opportunity to learn (and buy pretty dresses; she’s not a saint, after all). She assumes her patron is quite old and grey-haired (if he’s not bald, that is) and has the idea he is very tall. So she dubs him “Daddy Long Legs” and writes him far more than once a month. In fact, her patron is the youngish and handsome Jervis Pendleton, the eccentric uncle of one of her schoolmates. Despite his better judgment, Jervis is charmed by her letters. Soon he is re-reading the books Jerusha is reading, visiting her with the pretext of checking on his niece and of course falling hopelessly in love. Jerusha quite likes this Jervis, though he is far from the only young man paying her attention. Yet her sad background worries her.

Could any man of standing approve of an orphan? And Jervis worries, will Jerusha forgive his deception? Can he get her to love him as Jervis before discovering Jervis is her patron and then perhaps, horribly, feeling obliged to marry him? Well, really, have you never read Anne Of Green Gables or Rebecca Of Sunnybrook Farm and the like? The pleasure is in getting to know the characters, after all, not the suspense of their presumably happy fates.

Daddy Long Legs has been turned into a movie at least four times, including the godawful musical version starring Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron. That’s a little surprising since it’s an epistolary novel and almost all the letters are written by Jerusha to her unknown patron. It is, essentially, a monologue. The charm comes in falling in love with this intelligent young woman and slowly imagining her patron is falling in love with her as well. The modest suspense comes in wondering if the handsome young Jervis and her benefactor are one and the same.

This show lacks that suspense of course: we know Jervis is her patron from the start. So here the suspense must come in getting to know him as well, along with his dilemma about when to reveal this double identity. Notably, the songs for Jerusha often pull from lines in the book and feel more specific and alive. The songs for Jervis must be created from whole cloth; time and again the music and lyrics of Paul Gordon fall short. Whether because of clunky lines or confused references to the Camelot tale of the Lady In the Lake or a never fleshed-out backstory of a broken heart, the songs and story of Jervis remain unsatisfying.

The problems reach their peak with his big number “Charity.” Suddenly Jervis is denouncing charity as corrosive, as building up a wall between the giver and the receiver, a wall that can never be scaled. Huh? This is bizarre on many levels. The story celebrates charity and in the case of Jervis, the noble act of charity has done exactly the opposite of what he claims: without expecting anything in return, Jervis has found his wall scaled and his heart opened by another. So what exactly is he complaining about? (The book by John Caird with its hints as to why Jervis is closed-off to feeling is surely at fault here too. We simply don’t know why this man is such an emotional recluse, despite a vague reference to him being dumped for a duke many years ago.)

The songs for Jerusha are better, especially when peppy. But the arrangements and chamber feel of the show emphasize the romantic and even mournful undertones of the work. Since we don’t know where Jervis has begun, it’s hard to follow him on his journey to love. When they finally meet, Jerusha’s anger and then abrupt declaration of love feels both obvious and undramatic. We know her well, but after two hours we still don’t know him. John Caird has provided a showcase for two actors, not a satisfying work.

And that takes care of the show they made. What remains are many confused questions about why they made this show out of this book. First and foremost, there is the overall tone. The novel is a delight to read. Webster’s heroine is funny and smart and self-aware. But you certainly wouldn’t know that watching this. Humor is modestly present but more often the tone is dramatic and serious rather than exciting and fun. Jerusha is a firecracker and that’s clear from the start of the novel. Instead of “John Smith” as requested, she calls her patron “Daddy Long Legs.” She plays with the form of a letter to reflect her many studies. (Something the show attempts poorly.) The focus is always on learning and how Jerusha discovers a world of possibilities. The real adventure is knowledge, education, trying and succeeding at becoming a writer and discovering oneself. It is not about falling in love and being rescued by a man.

In the novel, when she talks about seeing Hamlet performed for the first time, Jerusha drolly says this Shakespeare fellow really is good, despite her having assumed he was coasting on reputation all this time. It captures both her genuine excitement at seeing a great play for the first time, her self-aware lack of experience (she’s seen precious little if any live theater) but without downplaying her innate intelligence, never more exemplified than by her awareness of how much she has yet to learn. This understanding of her meaning is perfectly in sync with the cheeky, witty tone she sets at the start of the book. But in the show, the lines are split up between Jerusha and Jervis and played straight; we’re allowed some condescending pleasure at her naive appreciation of the Bard, a la Educating Rita.

It typifies the show’s confused attitude towards Jerusha. Yes, the novel will end with a conventional happy ending of marriage. But Jerusha is hardly conventional: she touts education for women, argues for getting the vote and expresses a rather shocking disregard for organized religion if not downright atheistic thoughts (in 1909!). So why when she displays her first new dress do we see a sparkly virginal white one that looks for all the world like a wedding gown, as if her only dream was to be a bride? Being a bride is quite the last thing on her mind. She wants to be a writer and a reformer and a citizen, thank you very much. The novel describes Jerusha first buying SIX new dresses — she describes them all and none of them are white. Yes, white is an appropriate color for a woman her age when stepping out, but seeing it sends entirely the wrong signal.

Similarly, the production design sets all the action in Jervis’s world since we’re nominally in the library where he reads her letters. Fine enough and it’s a warm inviting room for any booklover. When Jerusha heads to a farm towards the end of act one, the windows are opened wide and the light streams in to indicate clear country air. Good. But in the second act, those windows are left open throughout. I kept thinking, are we back in the country?

The one unquestionably dated element of the book is that Jerusha often calls her benefactor “Daddy.” It’s forgivable since she imagines he is in his eighties and never had a father of her own. But since we have modern ears and sense her benefactor and her true love will be one and the same quite soon, it’s creepy to readers of today. She also has many other nicknames for him so this dated wording is easily fixed for the show. And yet, bizarrely, they remain adamantly faithful to the book and have Jerusha call him Daddy quite often. (Yes, “Daddy” is easier to fit into songs but that’s no excuse.)

And finally, in a perverse reversal, they ignore the book — and indeed every other adaptation of the novel I’m aware of — and call our heroine “Jerusha” from start to finish. Now Jerusha is a horrible name and it was randomly chosen for her at the orphanage, just one sign of many that reform is needed. As soon as she gets the chance, Jerusha dubs herself “Judy.” Wouldn’t you, given a name like Jerusha? Even in 1909? She announces this name change in the third or fourth letter of the book. It echoes what every reader has been thinking and proves early on that Judy nee Jerusha is an independent, confident, spunky sort thoroughly deserving our admiration. And of course “Judy” works much better in lyrics. Instead we have Jervis singing about “Jerusha” and how much he loves “Jerusha” and adores “Jerusha” and we think, couldn’t you give her a nickname please? Jerusha may be the least romantic name around and since Jerusha herself changes it to Judy and every other adaptation has eagerly done the same, it remains unfathomable as to why this show doesn’t. “Daddy” is a little icky but “Jerusha” is downright unforgivable. Certainly Jerusha would never approve.

REREAD ANOTHER ** out of ****
THE BRICK IN BROOKLYN

Having recently seen the Gertrude Stein children’s book The World Is Round turned into a captivating evening of theater, I was intrigued by Target Margin tackling her rarely performed 1921 puzzler Reread Another A Play To Be Played Indoors or Out I Wish To Be A School. A stage filled with detritus from a party long over is the setting. The game cast composed of Clare Barron, Purva Bedi, Ugo Chuckwu (and honorary cast member and sound man Jesse Freedman) give their energetic all, led by director David Herskovits. It’s not enough.

If the title alone makes you wary, stay away. If you’re willing to give a talented cast your focused attention, you will be rewarded with some potent imagery, some poignant moments where leaves are falling and music is playing and emotion is conjured out of thin air.

But you soon realize the text is stuff and nonsense. Without some structure imposed on it by the director, without discovering some internal rhythm that makes it sing, it remains a disconnected series of bits. Snatches of dialogue, ideas proffered up then batted away, word play that soon becomes work — it’s all here, unfortunately, and nothing more. Still, one respects the attempt, the dedication to following wherever the author leads, especially when it’s clear that — as a dramatic work — the author has led you astray.

Better Than Home: Chats with Beth Hart, The Stone Foxes and Sugar Ray Norcia, Plus Buffalo Rodeo, Dida and Elaine Romanelli Exclusives

2015-03-05-1425594327-9588962-819IRw6SFUL._SX522_.jpg

A Conversation with Beth Hart
 
Mike Ragogna: Beth, your new album is titled Better Than Home. So what’s better than home?
 
Beth Hart: “Better Than Home,” the song, is about getting out of your hiding place and having the courage to live as loud as possible. It is about feeling the life that has been given and has been waiting for you all along.
 
MR: “Might As Well Smile” makes a very good point about trying to stay optimistic through personal challenges, headlines and hypocrisy.  To me, those are some excellent, tight lyrics. So how did you come up with this one?  
 
BH: I was going through depression and struggling with powerful cravings to drink. I got so fed up with it that I decided to write something positive to help me realize that all I really have to do is fake it till I make it. I realized that I needed to smile anyway, and find all the wonder in life that’s certainly worth some gratitude. And it really worked. I started to come up out of it. I really love that song.
 
MR: What are a couple more of your favorite songs on the album and what are the stories behind their creations?
 
BH: “St. Teresa” is one of my favorites. It reminds me of the importance of grace. One of the many wonderful things she said was that the definition of having grace was to give love and help someone that you think does not deserve it. This, to me, is unconditional love–going beyond our judgment and cherishing anyway. The song was inspired by the film Dead Man Walking. It’s so brilliant. It carries such weight.

I also love “As Long As I Have a Song.” It’s my first time opening up about my absolute love for writing. I talk about how when writer’s block happens it’s not just frustrating, it’s terrifying to think that maybe the thing that helps me to heal and pray has possibly been taking away. This song reminds me to always, always, always value the gift of writing and to be so thankful for it.
 
MR: What was the recording process this time around and which lucky musical pals came to the party?
 
BH: We recorded in New York City, then mixed in Los Angeles. Ed Cherney mixed, Rob Mathes and Micheal Stevens produced, piano was Rob Mathes and myself, guitars were Rob and Larry Campbell, bass was Zev Katz, and drums were Charlie Drayton. We spent seven days in the studio and it was real cool. I was surrounded by great people…and how can ya not love New York?
 
MR: Speaking of pals, you recently did a project with Joe Bonamassa who adores you in my interviews with him. But the adoration doesn’t stop there. What’s going on with all this Beth Hart luv?
 
BH: Well, I hope he loves me because I love and adore all the musicians in his camp and the producer, Kevin Shirley. We’ve made two records now and a live DVD together…but it’s not that kind of love. I have a husband who’s the sexiest man that’s ever lived!! And I adore my Scotty more than anything and anyone, forever!!!
 
MR: Nice. How would you define your music these days?
 
BH: I call it Americana–rock, blues, soul, story teller, gospel, and sometimes a sprinkle of jazz–all the stuff Americans invented. The best.
 
MR: I’ve interviewed you like thirty times now, if by thirty, I mean twice. We’ve basically talk about your latest project, which, of course, we’re doing again here. But let me ask you about your roots this time. Which artists were you listening to growing up and what songs really got to you?
 
BH: I listened to a ton of different genres. From classical–Beethoven, to jazz–Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, Thelonious Monk, Anita O’Day, to reggae–Steele Pulse, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, to soul–Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, James Brown,  Etta James, to blues–Howlin Wolff, Big Joe Turner, Robert Johnson, etc), to hard rock–Led Zeppelin, ACDC, Rush, Black Sabbath, Sound Garden, Alice In Chains, Tool, Les Claypool in Primus, to punk–Ramones, Black Flag Pattie Smith, to story tellers–Carol King, James Taylor, Ricky Lee Jones, Eagles, Tom Waits, etc.–and this long ass list could go on and on and f**kin’ on!

You know, sometimes the songs that really affected me were not from the artist catalogue of their music, like the song “Thunder Road” by Bruce Springsteen. I never got into any of his other music, but that song to this day is in my top three lyrical masterpieces of all time. It so beautifully describes longing. It’s clever, but never reaching. It’s full of promise, but never a bullshit fairy tale. It’s the shit that writers should study on how to craft a great lyric. Also, The Stones song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” is perfect and so f**king true, but never preachy. There is a humility to knowing. I love it. The song “Summertime” is, to me, a musical feat. Just the music alone does it for me–soaring melodies, both gentle and powerful, like classical music, then a total blues style lyric over it. So fantastic. And last but not least, “Strange Fruit” by the great Billie Holiday and Nina Simone–genius!. This song musically is so gorgeous and DARK DARK DARK, which is so totally appropriate for the darkest of lyrics covering, in such a poetic way, the true depths of slavery, cruelty, and depravity. It’s brave, it’s honest, and it will never let us forget. It’s art.  
 
MR: What are the stories behind the transitions from music fan to performing musician to recording artist?
 
BH: The transition from fan, to performer, to recording artist for me was like learning how to dive…and each board got higher and higher. I wanted so much to do it, but I was afraid I’d be hurt. Now I’m used to being hurt and I know it is part of it, and that’s okay, because it also brings such love and joy. It’s totally worth it every time.
 
MR: What advice do you have for new artists?
 
BH: The best advice I can give is to do it because you have to, and try to never rate yourself or your work based on others’ reactions. This is very important. It’s a gift to enjoy, not to get more and more. If more comes than that’s awesome, but if more never comes don’t ever let that determine your worth. Have faith in everything and everyone, including yourself.
 
MR: Though there seems to be a healthier environment these days with new or emerging artists taking control of their own careers as opposed for depending on major labels to propel them. Yet it’s virtually impossible to have a huge career without those labels’ support and coordination and contacts. If you were starting now, how would Beth Hart approach getting her music discovered? 
 
BH: Oh I have no idea. I suppose I’d do what I did before, and that’s write and perform anywhere and everywhere constantly.
 
MR: How have your creativity and career evolved within a turbulent music scene’s sea changes?
 
BH: I honestly don’t focus on that, that’s what I have a manager and a label for. I have enough to jumble with taking care of myself and being creative. I also believe that God has me right where I’m supposed to be, always.
 
MR: So what surprises do you have waiting for the Beth Hart fans and newcomers?
 
BH: No surprises. I have a humble outfit, but we still give as much love and energy we possibly can each night. We play songs from all the records, so I always hope to make the audience feel very happy that they came.
 
MR: At this moment, are you where you want to be in your life?
 
BH: I really am enjoying and feeling so so grateful each day lately. This is a calm and peaceful time.

BUFFALO RODEO’S “BLUE SKY” EXCLUSIVE

2015-03-05-1425595997-1410282-buffalorodeo1.jpg
photo credit: Adam Wolffbrandt (www.http://www.adamwolffbrandt.com)

According to Buffalo Rodeo’s Zach Preston…

“Blue Sky” is the first single off Buffalo Rodeo’s upcoming EP, 123 Water, out March 6th. The band recorded this EP in a warehouse-turned-recording studio space in Horse Cave, KY, where we ostracized ourselves in a small town in the middle-of-nowhere. From those warehouse sessions came the songs that make up 123 Water. “Blue Sky” for me is a song about personal and spiritual realizations that I’ve observed growing up in a conservative religious household. Many times it felt like too much emphasis was put on what happens after I die, when most of us aren’t in control or completely aware of what’s happening in reality. It’s ultimately about living for what’s in front of you, until you can grasp the rest. Personally I think the rest is important just not as worthwhile as simple ethical lessons of respect, decency, or appreciation for what we already have.

A Conversation with The Stone Foxes’ Spence Koehler & Shannon Koehler

Mike Ragogna: Spence, looks like you’ve got some “Locomotion” behind your Foxes First Fridays. See the lame thing I did there?

Spence Koehler: Ha! I’ll take it! It’s definitely been a fun new way of rolling out new songs, giving fans something fresh to look forward to at the beginning of each month. We’re happy to see that they’re into it too.

Shannon Koehler: More dad jokes please!

MR: [laughs] So this upcoming album, with one song being released a week over the course of a year when it will finally be released, will not only be a full album but somewhat of a travelog, also containing pictures, live recordings and more. How did the idea come about to approach your new album this way?

Shannon: It started a year and a half ago when we decided to add three old friends to the team, Brian “The Buffalo,” and Vince “Trish” Dewald, and Ben “Wang” Andrews. All three are multi-instrumentalist wizards, and as they joined one by one over that time, we jumped into the studio between tours to slowly develop our new sound. We play a live show that feels like we’re a high octane GT 500 engine, but we wanted to get that feel to translate to tape. We took the straight up rock n roll that all six of us love to play, and went through phases of punk, country, folk, and pop sounds. This collection is the documentation of that process. It’s nothing like the old school albums we’ve done before. With one song about heart problems and surgeries shortly followed by another about gentrification in SF, the songs all feel so different, but they come from the heart of the same rock ‘n’ roll band.

Spence: Plus, the way most people digest new music is shifting. We wanted to give everyone a fresh track each month that they could listen to for free. This method gave us an opportunity to feature each song for an entire month, which is rarely the case on a traditional record. For those who enjoy taking the time to listen to a record from front to back we are also going to release a full physical album, press vinyl etc. That release will include some studio B sides, live video from The Chapel residency we did in Nov. 2014, and photos of life in the studio and on
the road.

MR: How has your audience reacted to this approach so far? Were you ever
afraid it might demand more of their patience than they’re willing to give for such an ambitious approach?

Spence: At the merch table after shows people keep asking us about the new
tracks and when the next one is coming out, they seem to be digging it as much as we are. When we were brainstorming about how to release the songs, we discovered that we all love it when we find out that there’s a brand new EP or single up for download on “So and So’s” site. You don’t have to wait for a full album to drop later down the road, you can go listen to some of it right now.

Shannon: Our fans and friends have stuck by us through thick and thin, from our first show at a cafe/laundromat to headlining The Fillmore. We weren’t afraid to give our fans something new, in fact, we wanted to to give them the music for free as a thank you. We can’t do it without them, and we know that.   

MR: How many of the Twelve Spells have been completed?

Shannon: We’re actually in our friends studio, The Complex in downtown SF,
doing overdubs on the last tracks right now!  You know it’s going well when going to the studio feels like going to camp.  It feels like summer camp right now.  

Spence: Yeah, we have all the main tracking done, but the big final task is mixing the songs together as a group. We recorded with some well known dudes with impressive resumes and big time artist credits, but this time around we wanted to get back to the basics and do it ourselves. So far it’s felt really natural and great.

MR: Is there any older material or songs written over a year ago making it into this batch?

Spence: There are some old riffs I had saved away that we used, probably some old lyrics that Shannon found on a notepad under his couch among the cookie crumbs and dust bunnies.

Shannon: They weren’t under my couch, jerk face! Some of the songs are a year old, some of them were written two weeks ago about things that are in our newspapers. A lot of our lyrics come from our passion for social justice issues, and there’s always something worth standing up for and singing about.

MR: What do you think of the blues-rock scene these days?

Spence: For a while, it seemed like Jack White and The Black Keys ruled the world, everything they put out was monstrous and awesome, but I feel like that bubble has burst and bands like Alabama Shakes and Tame Impala are putting out the most honest forward thinking blues these days.

Shannon: Everybody is so damn good…our Bay Area brothers Strange Vine and Two Gallants, and even bigger boys that we look up to like My Morning Jacket and Wilco… We could go on forever, but we’re lucky to live in a time when there are so many great bands taking rock n’ roll and doing it their own way.   

MR: What’s been the biggest surprise about making music together over these last few years? The biggest evolution for the band or music?

Shannon: Honestly, we’re surprised to be talking to someone like you!  We never thought we were gonna get farther than that cafe/laundromat. Playing festivals like Outside Lands, starring in music videos, flying to other countries…it’s all gravy.

Spence: The band has evolved several times since the start. Adding Elliott on
keys was a big sonic change to the beef of our sound. Two–and sometimes three–guitars gives Ben and I the flexibility to back up and weave in and out of each other. The addition of Vince, our second lead singer and songwriter, has expanded our vocal range and lyrical depth. Probably the most visible change has been adding Brian as a second drummer, letting him focus on his beats and allowing Shannon to sing and play harmonica from the front of the stage with a full tilt band behind him.

MR: Has this First Friday program been working better than you planned or is it still a work in progress?

Spence: It’s definitely been working well, though one big unexpected challenge has been coming up with the artwork for not one, but twelve covers. We’re collaborating with our friend and fellow SF artist Giuliana Pinto, who has been doing incredible paint on cardboard backdrops and costume design for our covers. Each song is given a representative character and she takes it from there. We’re all taking our turn donning whatever crazy outfits she’s devised for the cover shoots. I let her dress me up in shimmering glitter, makeup and hairspray to pose as Ocean Man for the cover of “Like it ain’t Nothin.” Giuliana herself wore tights and a red cape in the BART station for the cover of “Cold Like a Killer.” All of them are shot in and around different parts of SF because this place is a big part of our inspiration.

Shannon: And as we said before, not all of the songs are completely done…yipes! So we’ve been in my room with a kick-ass mic and towels draped all over my walls singing, disturbing my neighbors, then running in to mix, sending it out to be mastered, all to get it back in time for the first Friday.

MR: Who do you listen to casually, like what bands or solo acts?

Spence: I’m on a country kick right now–Buck Owens, Flying Burrito Brothers, Ryan Adams. Bakersfield-style stuff.

Shannon: I’ve been digging a lot of Nick Cave, he’s got a song about how Miley Cyrus was the best girl he ever had. If I wrote that, I’d get kicked out of my band! Outside of that, I can never get enough of The Band, and if I need to get pumped up lately I turn Jay Z’s “Threats” waaaay up!

MR: How do you see your recordings and music growing over the next year? How will that effect musical output and touring schedule?

Shannon: We’re really gonna put our heads together when the spells are finished, but we’ve been loving the darker places the music and lyrics have gone. We like the hard hits, with Ennio Morricone licks, just a pinch of hip-hop when needed, and lyrics that talk about what’s happening right now. A lot of people sing about girls, and we do it here and there too, but Vince and I are passionate about peace and social justice issues that our generation can’t ignore.  We feel that rock ‘n’ roll has the power to move mountains, and we’re gonna keep playing till we move one.

Spence: We’ve had our days in most studios and home-recording environments and I think we’ve finally found a comfortable spot right in between at the Complex SF. It’s not a slick LA studio and it’s also not our musty used-mattress-lined garage. It’s kind of a glorified garage though, a Wayne’s World-style garage with some quality gear and a chill dude who knows how to run it. It’s important to have a good set of mics and preamps to get solid tones. We track most instruments live, all together in the same room, with a bit of bleed. If someone flubs a note, but the rest of the take is right on, we keep it. Then we dub vocals either at
home or at the studio. We try to get too bogged down in the process and let the tracks speak for themselves.

MR: What advice do you have for new or emerging artists?

Spence: Write more songs than you’re actually putting on your record, then choose the best. Our first two records were cut the moment we had enough material to fill an LP and I’m sure we could have done better if we were not so antsy to just get another record out. It’s nice to have options to choose from when you’re putting together an album.

Shannon: Play lots of shows. Play lots of shows. Eat some ice cream… And then play more shows.

MR: What advice would you have given to The Stone Foxes when they started out?

Spence: Play like it’s the last show you’ll ever play. We once drove all the way to Phoenix, Arizona, to play for a huge room full of empty chairs. But we played in to ourselves nonetheless and made it a hell of a good time for us and the few people who were there putting on the show. Two years later, the same promoter asked us to open for The Black Keys.

Shannon: There was a meeting after another bad show in Southern California
where our managers sat us down the next morning and told us we could never play that sh**ty again. I wish I could have told ourselves that two years earlier. Oh, and I would have also told myself, get a better van, you idiot.

MR: [laughs] What does the immediate future look like?

Shannon: We’re about to book it down to the desert and play a mess of shows
including the the VIVA Phoenix fest and a bunch of SXSW showcases. We have eight shows in four days in Austin, so we’re getting in shape so we can keep it high voltage! We also are continuing to collect healthy non-perishable foods at each show and take them to shelters and food banks as part of our Goodnight Moon Project. Donate food to those in need and we’ll give you a 7″ record, easy as pie. See what it’s all about at http://www.goodnightmoonproject.org.
 
Spence: This Friday, we’re releasing “I Want To Be You” in our next installment of #FoxesFirstFriday. Check it out!

DIDA’S “APOLOGY” EXCLUSIVE

2015-03-05-1425596326-1464148-DIDA4682x1024.jpg
photo credit: Care Of Dida Pelled

According to Dida…

“‘Apology’ is the first release from my upcoming album Modern Love Songs. The core of the album is the idea that the same human feelings that have always existed, like songs of love and introspection are explored through a contemporary, personal perspective. On a musical and artistic level, I draw heavily from the great American songbook, and am constantly inspired by its great interpreters. In a way the direction of this album is a continuation of themes I find in those classic sources.

The song was written by my main collaborator, Tal Ronen. On the surface, it describes an experience familiar to New Yorkers, that of having caught a mouse. However, as the song progresses the separation between human and animal, captive and free, living and dying, begin to blur. Working with these ideas in mind, Iyar Dyoman directed this video. It features my parents, Peli and Dahlia Pelled.”

A Conversation with Sugar Ray Norcia

Mike Ragogna: Sugar Ray, your new album is titled Living Tear To Tear. Why all these tears?

Sugar Ray Norcia: Well, I don’t think of it as sad! Just listen to the band cruising along taking you for a joyful ride. The lyrics on a lot of the songs deal with common human emotions some, of course, about troubles, troubles in a relationship or trouble with something or another but the music behind it is very uplifting and therapeutic to me.

MR: Do you have some idea of what your projects will be about as you begin the creative phase or do the songs tell you what it is as you dig into the writing and recording?

SRN: I don’t begin with a preconceived idea for a project other then to keep in mind what it is that we as a band do best and that is to play our own unadulterated, unbasterdized version of urban,electric blues.I also keep in mind the incredible talent of the players around me as I write material. “Monster” Mike Welch on guitar is just that…a monster. His style is electrifying,inventive,subtle and passionate. These are the things that make a dynamic performer. Anthony Geraci is on piano and sometimes Hammond organ. It’s a pure delight to hear the keyboards being played with such intensity and sensitivity while keeping it all in the right style that compliments our material. I’m not just saying….I know! Then there is Mudcat Ward on upright and electric bass and Neil Gouvin on drums. Man they are a dream team of a rhythm section…the bands nucleus. Playing with them is like being driven in a Lincoln Town Car or Cadillac. Mudcats smooth, steady bass lines complimented with Gouvins world famous shuffle on his coveted, vintage Slingerland “Radio King” drum kit is the s**t! Man, I have to stop and go get a beer and a harmonica. I make my own damn self-inspired!

MR: [laughs] How does it feel to have a 35th anniversary with the band?

SRN: It feels great! I think it would be fair to say that not too many bands have been together for 35 years. Mike Welch on guitar is the newest member of the band. He’s been with us for about 15 years. The rest of us have played together for 35, yes that’s right, 35 years, more or less. I figure that’s a total of about 155 years of experience!

MR: From your perspective, what happened on Living Tear To Tear that never happened before on previous recordings?

SRN: Oh I don’t know. To me everytime we step foot into the recording studio something special happens. We are there to play our best but it’s like a frozen moment in time. If we were to record the same song once a day for any number of days, each take would be a little different from the last. It depends on how you are feeling in the moment.It depends on how relaxed or tense you may be or how many drinks you may have had or what’s going on in your private life or what the mix sounds like in your headphones.All sorts of variables ultimately contribute to the final product. We usually cut a song once, one take with almost no overdubs.

MR: Were there any surprising moments on the album? Any songs that gave you a tough time? Any that ended up becoming favorites?

SRN: None of the songs gave us a tough time. If you don’t know your craft after all these years then something aint right with you! One of my favorite songs ended up being the slow blues I wrote called “Misery.” It comes from somewhere other that just your normal three chord blues progression. It comes from deep within your heart and soul. It’s hard to describe in words. We were all in another place…almost spiritual I would say. We were just lazily floating through blues heaven making chord changes in unusual places, riffing off each others creative ideas, all unrehearsed and free. Thats a great thing to happen.

MR: What do you think of the blues these days? Does it still have the chops to get out there every night and do it again?

SRN: Like anything else, the blues evolves in all it’s different forms and off-shoots.I myself am not a big fan of rock inspired blues or blues that’s over the top. There’s nothing wrong with that approach but like to keep it true to the 1950s style of amplified blues. I like old stuff….old cars, old amps, old radios, old wine, old stuff. Maybe that’s why my friends have been calling me “The Old Man” since I was about 20!

MR: You as the artist, what do you feel are the best things that you contribute to the blues?

SRN: I think it’s really what I just said. My band and I are keepers of the flame when it comes to preserving the integrity of authentic sounding urban blues. I think given the complexity and craziness of the world around us today that it is refreshing for a lot of blues fans on this planet to hear as they say…the real deal. Our most recent album Living Tear to Tear was honored with seven Blues Music Award nominations this year including Band of the Year and Album of the Year. For myself alone I have thirteen Blues Music Award nominations for the Bluetones last three CD’s and last year I won two Blues Music Awards for my contribution on an album called Remembering Little Walter which also received a Grammy nomination. That makes me a three-time Grammy nominated blues performer. Not too shabby for a 61-year-old Italian American from Stonington, Connecticut. You know what the great Muddy Waters once told me? He said, “Sugar Ray, you Italians got soul!”

MR: Sweet. Do you think the blues will last forever?

SRN: What’s that saying? The blues will never die. It’s true! As long as we live in this sin sick world, the blues will be around. Since the beginning of time man has had some degree of the blues. It’s just a fact of life man, a fact of life.

MR: Sugar Ray, what advice do you have for new or emerging artists?

SRN: I would have to say…be yourself. You’ve probably heard that before but man it’s so right.When you get to a place as a young or older artist where you can incorporate all of the musical stylings that you appreciate and form them like from a ball of clay into something that is uniquely your own then you really got something. Be yourself….nobody else is!

MR: There’s no way you’re ever going to retire, is there.

SRN: Well, no. An artist doesn’t really ever retire. One may say that he or she is retiring but it really aint so.You know I had an uncle who played real great jazz guitar for all his life and one day when he was around 60 years old or so he just three up his hands and said, “That’s it, I quit!” I was devastated. I urged him to go out and play but he just refused. He said “no damn it, I’m done.” No one could figure out how or why he just stopped cold until we all realized that he had developed a bad case of dementia and that was the reason he threw in the towel .So, as long as I have my health I’m in the game.

MR: Even though you perform and record the blues, are you happy?

SRN: Listen to track # 3 on our CD “Living From Tear to Tear.” It’s called “Things Could Be Worse.” My Dad always told me, “Son, at times, you may think you have it bad but look around you…things could be worse.”

I’ve been married to the same great woman for forty years…I’m happy.
I have a wonderful family…I’m happy.
I live in a beautiful house in the country on twelve acres…Im happy.
I have chickens, a cat and a great dog…I’m happy.
I write, sing and play the blues with one of the best blues bands on the planet…I’m happy!

23-Year-Old ‘Sugar Baby’ Says She Has ‘Best Job In The World’ (VIDEO)

Wish you could have someone take you on over-the-top shopping sprees, bring you on lavish vacations, and shower you with gifts like designer handbags or expensive lingerie … when all you have to do is show up and look pretty? Twenty-three-year-old Michelle, who moved to Southern California for college but is not currently enrolled, says she’s getting exactly that by working as a “sugar baby.”

“I became a sugar baby because my financial needs were not being met working a retail job,” Michelle explains. “I figured, ‘Hey why not. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.’” Michelle explains, “In exchange for money I am giving them my time.” Unlike a prostitute, she says she has a strict no-sex policy but will kiss the men.

In the video above, she says: “Being a sugar baby is the best job in the world. It’s, like, so easy — you go on a date, you eat good food, and then you get paid. You’re like a little princess. That’s where I find my happiness, and if you don’t like, it I think you should mind your own business.”

On Thursday’s Dr. Phil, Michelle reveals to her father and brother what she’s been doing with herself while they think she’s enrolled in a prestigious college. Watch here.

Watch as Dr. Phil attempts to show Charles, who weighs 605 pounds, what he’s putting into his body each year: approximately 120 pounds of fat, 100 pounds of sugar and 20 pounds of salt. “We’re not even talking about the actual foods,” Dr. Phil explains. “We’re just talking about sodium, sugar and fat. What you would lose in weight just by changing these things right here is staggering.”

Dr. Phil vows to help both Charles and his twin brother, Adam, in using the tools in his new book, The 20/20 Diet: Turn Your Weight Loss Vision into Reality, 20 Key Foods to Help You Succeed Where Other Diets Fail. It’s a three-phase approach based on “20/20 Foods” — 20 foods for 20 days. Find out more here.

They love to cunt dive, and you don’t say no to Cassidy Clay and Brown Sugar when they decide they want to fuck tramps for the day. By the time these two end up done with each other, they even pulled out their double ended dildo to go to town with. I love watching their booties bouncing against each other.

Okay, now I know this might sound strange, but Brown Sugar really does end up giving a strap on a footjob at some point in this porno. It’s not exactly something you expect to see in a dark lesbian porno, but it certainly does add a lot of kinkiness to something that is kinky enough on its own. If you love ebony dykes but you aren’t really into foot fetish, you’ll be okay. There is plenty of other black girl on girl fucking that will make you just require to jack it right there and then.

Fed Up Spotlights the American Sugar Epidemic

Fed Up is an excellent documentary; it’s the latest in shocking truths about our food in America from Atlas Films with producers Katie Couric, Laurie David, Heather Reisman, Regina Kulik Scully and Michael Walrath, directed by Stephanie Soechtig.


Everything we’ve been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong. Fed Up is the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see.

It asks basic and important questions such as: “Why is obesity in American children an epidemic?” “Why for the first time will this generation of U.S. children not live as long as their parents?” The answer: Sugar.

Fed Up masterfully shows audiences how Big Food has been allowed to feed our nation mega tons of sugar. So much so that Type 2 diabetes, which historically occurs in middle to later life is now becoming commonplace in children, coast to coast across America.

This is a must see documentary. “Everyone should see the movie. If you eat, if you shop at a grocery store, that food is making everyone sick even if it doesn’t make you fat,” says Academy-award winning producer Laurie David.

This rich documentary is loaded with staggering facts. For example, between 1980 and 2000 fitness club memberships more than doubled across America, yet, at the same time, the obesity rate also doubled.

2014-05-25-ObesityFedUpmovie

Thirty percent of Americans are obese. Up to 40 percent of normal weight people have the same metabolic dysfunction as those who are obese. So, 51 percent of the U.S. population is sick with metabolic dysfunction. Photo credit theguardian.com

In 1980 the number of documented Type 2 diabetes cases amongst American adolescents (ages 8-19) was zero. Whereas, in 2010, there were 57,638 U.S. adolescents diagnosed with this preventable, life-threatening disease: Type 2 diabetes.

2014-05-25-ChildhoodObsityFedUpmovieEarthDrReeseHalter

Several studies show that when children are watching television, especially shows with food commercials, they’re primed to eat more. One study had kids watching TV with a bowl of goldfish crackers to munch on while they were watching. The kids that watched programs that showed food commercials ate 45% more goldfish crackers compared to kids watching the same program with non-food commercials. Photo credit: Atlas Films

From 1977 to 2000, Americans have doubled their dietary sugar intake. As if this weren’t disturbing enough, since 1995, corn-based sweetener companies have received over $ 8 billion in subsidies.

Soon after these repugnant sugar subsidies began, tens of billions of honeybees across America began to die en masse. Most of the sugar derived today in America comes from genetically modified corn. Over 400,000 farms in America plant corn. Those corn seeds are coated with a class of bee-killing insecticides known as neonicotinoids (neonics).

2014-05-25-DeadHoneybeesEarthDrReeseHalter

Since 2006 honeybees have been dying at a staggering rate. Scientists have dubbed this crisis Colony Collapse Disorder or CCD because all that remains in the colony is the helpless queen – 100,000 femaie workers abandon the hive and die. Photo credit: inhabitat.com

The deleterious and knock-on effects from using neonics are well documented and believed by many of my distinguished colleagues from around the globe to be the culprit for CCD, a crisis that has witnessed the death of more than 300 billion honeybees.

Between 1970 and 1990, the consumption of high fructose corn syrup in America has increased by 1000 percent. Did you know that a typical 20-ounce bottle of soda contains 16 teaspoons of sugars from high fructose corn syrup?

By 2010, two out of every three Americans were either overweight or obese. Eighty percent, or 480,000 of the 600,000 food products sold within the U.S. have added sugar, which, according to researchers and medical doctors, is why we have the world’s highest obesity rate at 31 percent.

Fed Up calculated that by 2050, one in three Americans would have diabetes. But before America attains this dreadful statistic, by 2035, approximately 95 percent of American’s will be either overweight or obese.

2014-05-24-FedUpmovieSugarversusCocaineEarthDrReeseHalter

Are you aware that sugar is a highly addictive substance? Photo credit: Atlas Films

In fact, 43 cocaine-addicted laboratory rats were given the choice of cocaine or sugar water over a 15-day period: 93 percent or 40 out of 43 chose sugar.

2014-05-24-PresidentBillClintonEarthDrReeseHalter

When President Bill Clinton was interviewed on Fed Up, he succinctly summed up America’s sugar and obesity crisis: “We must change the way we produce and consume in the United States.” Photo credit: Atlas Films

Clearly we need to move quickly to avert what’s coming next. Health is first and foremost. “To be healthy, cook fresh food, keep to an absolute minimum what comes from a box, juice carton, soda can or jar because there’s so much hidden sugar,” says executive producer Heather Reisman.

FedUpmovie.com lists where sugar hides. Go there and become aware, please. I tell my students, “If you cannot pronounce the chemicals that are added into your food, don’t eat it.” Make it a habit to read all labels, and shop mostly around the perimeter of grocery stores.

The architect, author, social commentator and philosopher Frank Lloyd Wright believed that, “The heart of a home is its kitchen.” Cooking is fun. Cooking is easy. The kitchen is where parents find out all about what is going on in their children’s world. It’s also where children learn to cook. Please teach your children to cook with fresh foods not processed foods.

Consider taking the Fed Up challenge – Sugar Free for 10 Days. Just do it. Everyone’s life depends upon it.

They each get their holes opened up and slammed by the toys, getting off over and over again from the sensation, before they scissor together and grind their moist boxes against one another to get a thrill that can’t be beat!
