From Zombies To Reality: Chatting With Andrew McMahon, Ian Hunter And Son Volt's Jay Farrar, Plus BoDeans' 'My Hometown' Exclusive
Huffington Post - 14 days
A Conversation with Andrew McMahon Mike Ragogna: Andrew, your new album Zombies On Broadway seems like it could be converted into something more than just your second Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness project. Was that your evil scheme? Andrew McMahon: You know, it's always kind of my evil scheme, truthfully. I've always loved records that seemed to have a theme or some sort of overarching concept. Of course, I didn't go full crazy-concept record but I wanted there to be a feeling that these songs were sourced from a similar space and told a larger story once you put them all together. MR: I especially love your concept of finding your way back to the city to settle a score with an “old ghost.” And that sometimes, you can go home again. AM: It wasn't the plan, but I tend to find that “plans” are meant to be redirected and they can shift on a dime. New York brings out some of the best and worst things in me. I think that's probably why I was so attracted to bringing the cre ...

Music previews for the week of July 5-11. THURSDAY 7/5 SUNDOWN AT ECOTRUST: TYPHOON, AU (Ecotrust, 721 NW 9th) See My, What a Busy Week! LOWER DENS, NO JOY, ALAN RESNICK (Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) Baltimore five-piece Lower Dens pull at lo-fi heartstrings and bathe the listener in a seductive form of post-punk gloom that gives way to a sweet kind of longing. Embark on a slow train to hazy bliss as frontwoman Jana Hunter lulls you with her soft and thoughtful voice, backed by psychedelic undertones and melodies that work together in spacious harmony. A form of easy listening that pulls one into a kaleidoscope of future-retro ambiance has seen their albums maturing methodically from stripped-down experimentalism to a more complex and driving potency. It seems to make sense on their latest, Nootropics—an album whose songs are based largely on metaphorical drugs that allow for superhuman powers. CHRISTINA BROUSSARD ...

Bombay Bicycle Club - Live At Alexandra Palace, London
Clash - almost 5 years
There are many things that make Britain iconic, from its magnificent Victorian architecture to its dominance as an empire of production, but as characteristics they’re ones that now only seem to reside on the cracked pages of school history books. And it’s sad to know a history so lucrative in creativity is being lost to the empire of technology. It’s perhaps most welcome then, that a band so iconic to Britain’s indie youth finds themselves coming home to the magnificent Alexandra Palace, the place they passed as teenagers with big dreams a few years back. For Bombay Bicycle Club are coming home, and they’re head over heels grateful. They play to one of the biggest audiences of their careers, watching as a sea of ten thousand people jitter in the husky blue glow of stage lights, dancing to the riffs that only three years ago existed as sketchy demos on a Myspace page. This is the moment that every artist longs to cherish, it matters not what exists as stats in some cor ...

    TWENTIES
  • 1999
    Frank died of pneumonia and cardiac arrest in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, on March 3, 1999, at the age of 56.
    More Details Hide Details Though he never achieved fame during his lifetime, his songs have been covered by many well-known artists, including Simon and Garfunkel, John Mayer, Counting Crows, Nick Drake, Sandy Denny, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Laura Marling, and Robin Pecknold (as White Antelope) of Fleet Foxes. Nick Drake covered 4 songs from Frank's debut album, "Here Come the Blues", "Blues Run the Game", "Milk & Honey", and "Kimbie". These are found on Drake's posthumous release, Family Tree. Frank's song "I Want To Be Alone", also known as "Dialogue," appeared on the soundtrack for the film Daft Punk's Electroma. This song plays when the gold robot is on fire, and slowly walking through the darkness of the Southwestern USA Salt Plains. Soulsavers covered "Blues Run the Game" on their single "Revival" (7" vinyl, 30 April 2007).
  • TEENAGE
  • 1984
    In 1984, his mother, who had been in hospital for open heart surgery, returned home to find Frank missing with no note or forwarding address.
    More Details Hide Details Frank had gone to New York City in a desperate bid to find Paul Simon, but ended up homeless and sleeping on the sidewalk. During this time he found himself in and out of various psychiatric institutions. Frank was treated for paranoid schizophrenia, a diagnosis that was denied by Frank himself—he maintained that he was suffering from depression caused by the trauma he had experienced as a child. Just as Frank’s prospects seemed to be at their worst, a fan from the Woodstock area, Jim Abbott, discovered him in the early 1990s. Abbott had been discussing music with Mark Anderson, a teacher at the local college he was attending. The conversation had turned to folk music, which they both enjoyed, when Abbott asked the teacher if he had heard of Frank. He recollected: Frank, who had known Anderson from their days at Gettysburg College, had decided to write him to ask if there was anywhere in Woodstock he could stay after he had made up his mind to leave New York City. Abbott phoned Frank, and then organized a temporary placement for him at a senior citizens’ home in Woodstock. Abbott was stunned by what he saw when he found Frank in New York:
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1975
    Karl Dallas wrote an enthusiastic piece in 1975 in Melody Maker, and in 1978, his 1965 album was re-released as Jackson Frank Again, with a new cover sleeve, although this did not in the end make his music much more popular outside of a small number of his fans. Addenda/correction - marriage date: Jack married Elaine Sedgwick on February 2, 1967 in a church in Elma, NY.
    More Details Hide Details I was there and played lute music for the processional(The Galliard for Queen Elizabeth by John Dowland)and the recessional (Kemp's Jig, anon.)at their request. I have confirmed the marriage date with the Elma Town Clerk. Richard Stanley Frank lived with his parents in Elma, New York for a few years in the early 1980s.
  • OTHER
  • 1968
    When he returned to England in 1968 he seemed a different person to his friends.
    More Details Hide Details His depression, stemming from the childhood trauma of the classroom fire, had grown worse, and he had completely lost whatever little self-confidence he once possessed. Al Stewart recalled that: While in Woodstock, he married Elaine Sedgwick, an English former fashion model. They had a son and later a daughter, Angeline. After his son died of cystic fibrosis, Frank went into a period of even greater depression and was ultimately committed to a mental institution. By the early 1970s Frank began to beg aid from friends.
  • 1966
    Although Frank was well received in England for a while, in 1966 things took a turn for the worse as his mental health began to unravel.
    More Details Hide Details At the same time he began to experience writer's block. As his insurance payment was on the verge of running out he decided to go back to the United States for two years.
  • 1965
    His eponymous 1965 album, Jackson C. Frank, was produced by Paul Simon while the two of them were living in England immersed in the burgeoning local folk scene.
    More Details Hide Details Frank was so shy during the recording that he asked to be shielded by screens so that Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, and Al Stewart could not see him, claiming 'I can't play. You're looking at me.' The best-known track from the sessions, "Blues Run the Game", was covered by Simon and Garfunkel, and later by Wizz Jones, Counting Crows, John Mayer, Mark Lanegan, Headless Heroes, Colin Meloy, Bert Jansch, Eddi Reader, Laura Marling and Robin Pecknold (White Antelope), while Nick Drake also recorded it privately. Another song, "Milk and Honey", appeared in Vincent Gallo's film The Brown Bunny, and was also covered by Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, and Sandy Denny, whom he dated for a while. During their relationship, Jackson convinced Sandy to give up her nursing profession to concentrate on music full-time.
  • 1954
    The fire, on March 31, 1954, killed fifteen of his fellow students, including Marlene du Pont, Frank's then girlfriend, about whom he would later write the song "Marlene".
    More Details Hide Details Frank survived, but suffered burns over 50% of his body. During his hospital stay he was introduced to music, when a teacher, Charlie Castelli, brought Frank an acoustic guitar to keep him occupied during the recovery. When he was 21, he received an insurance check of $110,500 for his injuries, enough for him to "catch a boat to England."
  • 1943
    Born on March 2, 1943.
