ABOUT

Born 1960

Lives in Mpls/St. Paul metro

I support my sons band (Gramma) and the bands he has associated with. Collect music and love baseball. I am also awaiting retirement.

about quizkid

Catalog of over 7,300 album titles. Raised on Hank Williams and Elvis. Then late one night listening to clear channel WLS - AM (Chicago) radio in 1970, when I was 10, I had a mind blowing experience - it was my 1st taste of Led Zeppelin - Whole Lotta Love (you might have stumbled across them).

    Cybernetic Witch Cult came to town last night and they were outstanding. They've got a new album coming out as soon as they can get the money for CDs. I also recommend the band they're touring with: Morass of Molasses

    Hard rock bar (very strict rules about what is allowed to be played on the jukebox). Maybe 50 in attendance? I managed to chat to the singer while I was buying merch - 1 lp from each band + a tee. He had completely forgotten about Feedbands, and couldn't remember what it was for. I wonder how many other bands uploaded their songs them promptly forgot all about it.

    I've been doing fine, thanks for asking. I'm a big believer in the FeedBand concept. I listen to every song submitted (though maybe not in it's  entirety).  My perspective is probably a bit different than others in that I have a kid that's trying to make it with his band.  He's been at it since he was 12 (now 21).  I appreciate what people like you do making music as I've seen the process through my kid.  I sure as hell ain't got the talent for it.  I just listen and get to as many shows as I can.

    They are offering 2-for-1 on their record archive. Immaterial for you since you own everything, but the post-script is interesting:

    "PS: Big things are coming for Feedbands in 2019, including a total website overhaul, total app overhaul, total voting and vinyl pressing overhaul, and one major announcement that is going to blow people's minds as a first in the music industry :) We've been quietly working on this latest update for over a year and it's just about ready so stay tuned :)



    In the mean time, get some of that vinyl!! "

    Hey bud! I wanted to let you know the LIGHT // SOUND record has been pressed to vinyl and I made wooden sleeves out of salvaged floorboards from torn down houses in New Orleans for a Limited Edition run of the release. I don't have a lot for sale online but I wanted to give you a chance to snag one because I thought you'd interested in having it. I got them pressed in white, yellow, and pink. I've got it all set up on BandCamp. Shipping is around $13 tho due to the weight of it...

    Music can make you feel a multitude of ways. Work seems either frustrating or nothing.  Dolbro is not my "typical" listen but he does what he does very well.  I really enjoy his lyrics.    I have assisted in funding his album on Qrates.

    I'm a techno caveman - I don't even own a cell phone (though I have to have one for work). I didn't know there was an "app for that."  The only "social media" I participate in is FeedBands - mainly because I like checking out new bands.  I've been with FeedBands since the 3rd album (but have ALL the FB releases) but didn't start using the site until 2+ yrs ago.  I really was enjoying bantering back/forth with some of the members, but as I've said before, no one seems to comment much anymore.

    I guess I need to listen to an album without voting on any song.  1 liked song = Fan.  I can usually like 1 song on an album by most any artist.  That doesn't make me a Fan.  I'm just acknowledging a good song and trying to be supportive/positive for an artist.  I'd hate to put my work out there for everyone to up/down vote.  Nobody likes bureaucrats anyway..
