Athens Redux

Our band this week is one that's close to my heart. Body Electric was a local band that held a lot of promise that unfortunately never quite reached its potential. They contacted me when I left the 40 Watt and I became their sound man for about a year and a half, during which period saw us play in Athens, mostly at O'Malley's Tavern and the Odyssey. We also made three trips to New York to showcase there. All in all it was a fun ride but we never quite made it over the top.

We wish to thank Tom English for his dedication to locating and downloading our music files from the old website.  Without his help, we very likely would have lost 5 years of music files.  

 

Thank you, Tom for your tenacity in taking on the tedious task, and helping us to "preserve the magic".

I cannot brook things that don’t work as intended, and after being subjected to cyber harassment for a few minutes I am usually ready to go to war with the offending party.

Such was the situation last week, when I encountered a “failure to communicate” with my software. It took a long while, but I finally persevered and we are ready to resume our weekly feature, Athens Redux. Speaking of redux, that’s exactly what I had to do battle with until there wasn’t enough time to complete the task at hand. Veni, vidi, vici.

We hope you enjoy a musical interlude with our choice this week, the New Invincibles.

Athens Redux

I've been holding this clip in readiness for an upcoming show at the 40  Watt next week. The Squalls were one of the pillars that held up the Watt throughout most of the 1980's and they were a personal favorite when they came to play our place. This show dates from around 1988, which means it contains some songs that likely weren't heard by some of their most loyal fans, we hope you'll enjoy them!

Let's say hello to a good band from Kentucky. That's right, Government Cheese is our featured band this week, and their version of Bluegrass Rock is just the ticket to kick off a rockin' weekend!
