These bags of bones, John (Guitar/ Vox), Paul (Percussion) and Sanford (Bass/Vox) can get the graveyard rocking with music infused with influences from bands like The Ramones, the Misfits, the Exploited, and even Mud Honey. Their recent single Operations, a music video shot in Lake View Terrace, California,  is now online.

These veteran musicians have played at a wide range of venues throughout the SFV, including Petie’s Place, Webber’s, Scotland Yard Pub, The Crest, Mental Mondays at the House of Brews in San Fernando, and  and are available for fundraisers and private parties. For booking send a direct message.

“"For all our natural wealth, we in America have become increasingly disconnected from our natural world.

What is needed at this juncture is to turn the corner and head toward a better and broader public understanding of the planet’s natural systems and how we are inextricably linked to them. From that knowledge, American ingenuity can rise to the challenge of building a more sustainable future – one in which our actions and creations fit into the natural systems that sustain life.

The California Environmental Legacy Project offers a fresh approach to this education challenge. Combining rich visual imagery, digital distribution and artful storytelling, the Legacy Project seeks to awaken public understanding and stimulate cultural change through an integrated package of environmental media programs. Led by distinguished scientists, leading educators and award-winning media professionals, the Legacy Project will connect our everyday lives to the life of California’s natural systems and inspire us to become long-term partners with nature.

Tikal Sun | Eco-conscious alt rockers from North Hollywood, California

tikal-sunWow! I’m looking forward to listening to TIKAL SUN (tee-call | sun) at the upcoming I Scream Party! These Eco-conscious alt rockers will be coming from North Hollywood, California to play at the 13th Floor Arts Society. These musicians produce amazingly soulful music that has tribal, psychedelic elements to it. Be sure to catch flautist Juan Cardenas, rhythm guitarist Nelson Alburquenque, percussionist Billy Rodriguez and drummer Matt Gottesman as they present a live set and also accompany author Doren Damico on what is sure to be a hard blues and pop-rock poetic evening.

I have had the pleasure of listening to these musicians and had the pleasure of a little percussion added to my own spoken word at Tia Chucha‘s courtesy of Billy. They’ve also been spotted at Mental Mondays (photo featured above) in San Fernando, and have played Kulak Woodshed, The Other Door and throughout North Hollywood as well.

Deets about their appearance at the upcoming I Scream Party are available via Facebook. If you like what you hear, then you can subscribe to TIKAL SUN’s page via soundcloud but you can also find them on Reverbnation, @TikalSun and on youtube.

Song of the Day: A Change Gonna Come (JPOD REMIX)

♫  #SongofTheDay ♫ : JPOD‘s #Remix of #SamCooke’s “Change is Gonna Come” is pure soul❢
#PeaceThroughMusic ❁ #BatonRouge ❁ #NiceAttack


 

 

With so much violence happening in popular media– shootings, bombings, war, war, and war– it is imperative that we strive to keep a positive vibe grooving. Sooo bring on the dirt, ’cause I’m a seed! Throw me a lemon and I will eat that right in front of you without batting a eyelash . And play me a tune that is revolutionary and forward thinking and I will listen.  

Cue the music: Sam Cook’s “A Change is Going to Come” is an artfully composed song that was released on December 22, 1964. The same year that Malcolm X was banned and later left the Nation of Islam; The opening of the New York World’s Fair; rising civil angst towards the Vietnam War; launch of the Berkeley Free Speech Movement, Dr. Martin Luther King is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize; as well as the births of Michelle Obama, Crispin Glover, Courtney Love and death of Sam Cook himself. 

JPOD’s remix of “A Change is Going to Come” is a soulful rendition of a song that has as much relevance today as it did when it was released. The “wub-wub-wubby” vibe does not deter from the original track, rather, it gives it a contemporary feeling; an eargasmic arrangement that one might catch while listening to the very modern Andre 3000 or Raphael Saadiq. The song itself was produced in a social climate of deep segregation, war and civil unrest. While Sam Cooke himself thought the song sounded like death, I believe speaks a necessary truth.
