7. M. Hederos & M. Hellberg – “Been Smoking Too Long”
from: M. Hederos M. Hellberg / Gravitation Recordings / 2003
[This piano and vocal duo was born on New Years Day 2001. They both used to play in a band called Nyphet Noodlers and they were supposed to have a reunion in a studio but the others didn’t show up. To pass time while waiting for the others, they played some songs they loved. The engineer pressed the record button and the result was a record with interpretations of rock classics that stunned the audience. It is not often a cover version will give an old song such a new meaning, but with Martin Hederos sensitive and fondling hands over the keyboard and Mattias husky voice they create a sense of melancholy gospel and soul. They recorded a second album “Together in the darkness” and by then they had developed their own songwriting that well holds the standard. The recording is made in Silence Studio with Micke Herrström as producer. The recordings started of course on a New Years Day after a great party the night before together with friends and beloved. They played all over Scandinavia, Germany and France, went on tour with Ryan Adams and was support for Van Morrison. They were so popular they had to quit in 2002/2003 to have time for their ordinary lives! Martin Hederos is a member of The Soundtrack Of Our Lives and Tonbruket. Mattias have been playing guitar with The Hellacopters and Håkan Hellström and is a member of Nationalteatern.]

Remembering Anne

10:00 – Remembering Anne Winter

1. Eulogies – “Inward”
from: Eulogies / Dangerbird Records / September 11, 2007

2. Mark Manning – “On meeting Anne Winter”

I met Anne Winter in February 1989. I asked her for items from her window that I could use as props at The Unicorn Theatre, she gladly started handing me things. My path crossed with Anne’s on the issues of censorship and free speech. The Greater Kansas City Coalition Against Censorship, sprang from Anne’s relationship with Richard & Linda Rostenberg, and so many others, and Anne created Culture Under Fire usually in April, lasting 10 days or so, involving lots of bands and music venues and performance artists and writers and teen poets, and zine editors, and activists and artists, all celebrating culture and free speech.

Anne Winter made a BIG difference, in my life, and in so many lives, and in our community. She connected people, cultivated events, nudged her friends closer to their dreams, making realities happen. I remember when she picked me up in her van, and drove me to Sandstone, put a wrist band on my arm and pushed me into the Spoken Word tent at Lolapalooza, or when she asked me to be Stage Manager for a show at The Uptown featuring Michael Moore, Iris DeMent and The Wilders. Anne was so staggering in her service to humankind, that it feels like she is still conducting her work, even after passing from this physical world. Is she collaborating with the higher frequencies?

I know I’m not alone, when I confess, that there are times when I feel her gentle encouragement or her beneficial honesty offered during a difficult decision. I hear her suggestion on the playlist, “can you include Calexico?” I see the relationships and connections she fostered, and all of us, who love her, are connected. I witness the meaningfulness of her beautiful life, in a world where it all goes… really fast.

I recently saw her son Max at YJ’s. David said, “look, there’s Max.” He has grown taller. He and his sister Eva, they love their mother so very much. And they have a beautiful father… Kurt von Schlemmer we love you, and send our best wishes to you and your family.

Today we start our show by remembering Anne Winter, with six songs from: The Pixies, Talking Heads, Calexico, The Flaming Lips, Loose Cannon Brass Band, and Iris DeMent, and intermingled with the music, are words from four friends: Lisa Cordes, Tim Kearns, Billy Smith, and Iris DeMent, and even a little bit of Anne herself.

These are excerpts from our 100th show, March 22, 2006 – a Tribute to Recycled Sounds.

We observe that on this day, in this moment, it has been five years.

We miss you Anne!

First UK pressings were on translucent yellow vinyl and some European pressings were also available on blue vinyl. Though it was rumored at the time that this would be his final outing with the label, following dissatisfaction over the promotion of Low and "Heroes", Bowie would in fact remain with RCA until 1982. The recording was culled from concerts in Philadelphia, Providence and Boston, USA. It primarily included material from Bowie's most recent studio albums to that date, Station to Station, Low and "Heroes" but, in a surprise show of nostalgia, also featured five songs from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Aside from Bowie's core team of Carlos Alomar, Dennis Davis and George Murray, band members included ex-Frank Zappa sideman Adrian Belew on guitar, Simon House from Hawkwind on electric violin, Roger Powell, best known for his work with Todd Rundgren in the group Utopia, on keyboards and Sean Mayes on piano, string ensemble and backup vocals. All would reunite the following year on Bowie's next studio LP, Lodger. Generally considered more relaxed than Bowie's previous live album, David Live (1974), Stage was praised on its initial vinyl release for the fidelity with which the band was able to emulate in concert the electronic and effects-filled numbers from Low and "Heroes", as well as for the singer's vocal performance. However, it was criticized for lacking a 'live' atmosphere, thanks to the recording being largely taken from direct instrument and microphone feeds which increased sound quality but minimized crowd noise. The original concert running order was also changed, with fades between tracks similar to a studio album.]

Amy Farrand talked about setting up for tonight’s Weirdo Wednesday Supper Club, the work involved, and how after 5 years she was ready to move on to new experiments.

Originally Amy did the Weirdo Wednesday show every week, and then after a hiatus she brought it back as a monthly event, and now after nearly 5 years she is getting ready to end the series.

Davey’s Uptown Ramblers Club is a venue where Amy has played live music since she was 15 years old, in her first bands.

Tonight’s Weirdo Wednesday Supper Club features The Silver Maggies fronted by lead singer/songwriters – Patrick Deveny and Terrence Moore (American Catastrophe, The Black Water). Founding members include Felix Dukes on electric guitar, Jonathan Knecht on drums and Steve Tubbert (Zoom) on bass.

The Murder Ballad Ball was where Amy became a member of The Silver Maggies.

Amy also is doing more shows with Sister Mary Rotten Crotch

Being a drummer and bassist gives the opportunity to see a band from a special perspective.

In 2012 Amy released her solo EP, “Amy Farrand (Loves) You,” to critical acclaim. It was on our list of The 112 Best Recordings of 2012. One of our favorite songs from that release is “How You Feelin'” a song that features Ernie Locke on harmonica.

9. The Silver Maggies – “End of Time”
from: My Pale Horse / Money Wolf Music / March 28, 2013
[Fronted by lead singer/songwriters - Patrick Deveny and Terrence Moore (American Catastrophe, The Black Water). Founding members include Felix Dukes on electric guitar, Jonathan Knecht on drums and Steve Tubbert (Zoom) on bass. Terrence joined The Silver Maggies in 2010 after performing with them that year at the Murder Ballad Ball. He brought several original songs to add to the repertoire and splits singing and songwriting duties. This spring the band added Amy Farrand (American Catastrophe, Atlantic Fadeout, EIO) on vocals and additional instrumentation, as well as Samon Rajabnik on B3 organ. Both artists performed on "My Pale Horse" and joined the band for a raucous set at the 2012 Murder Ballad Ball in Kansas City. The album was recorded over the last year by Chris Cosgrove at Black Lodge, Cosgrove Audio, WaveLab and Element Recording. Mixing was done in Tuscon, AZ at WaveLab by veteran producer/engineer Craig Schumacher (Calexico, Neko Case, DeVotchKa).]

10. Goat – “Hide From The Sun”
from: Commune / Sub Pop / September 23, 2014
[Goat is a Swedish alternative and experimental fusion music group. Currently based out of Gothenburg, they claim to hail from Korpilombolo in Sweden which, according to the band's own publicity, has a history of voodoo worship after a witch doctor came and lived there. Supposedly, when Christian crusaders came and destroyed the village the surviving people fled and placed a curse on the town. This has been described as "a lovely story, if possibly not entirely rooted in reality." The band started playing music when they were children, as part of a local community tradition, and there have been many incarnations of Goat who have recorded over the last "30 or 40 years". There are now three original "core" members of the band, from Korpilombolo, but in live concerts they are augmented by four other performers from Gothenburg.]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Fela Kuti!!!

Fela Kuti was born October 15, 1938 and died August 2, 1997. He was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, musician, composer, pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre, human rights activist, and political maverick.

Fela Kuti was born October 15, 1938 and died August 2, 1997. He was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, musician, composer, pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre, human rights activist, and political maverick.

[Hearts of Darkness play Felabration 2014 Saturday, Oct. 18, at recordBar, 1020 Westport Rd. with Baoku Moses, and Image Afro Beat Band. ]

Fela Kuti was born October 15, 1938 and died August 2, 1997. He was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, musician, composer, pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre, human rights activist, and political maverick. Afrobeat, a style he largely created is a complex fusion of Jazz, Funk, Ghanaian/Nigerian High-life, psychedelic rock, and traditional West African chants and rhythms. Afrobeat also borrows heavily from the native “tinker pan” African-style percussion that Kuti acquired while studying in Ghana with Hugh Masekela. The importance of the input of Tony Allen (Fela’s drummer of twenty years) in the creation of Afrobeat cannot be overstated. Fela once famously stated that “without Tony Allen, there would be no Afrobeat”. Afrobeat is characterized by a fairly large band with many instruments, vocals, and a musical structure featuring jazzy, funky horn sections. A riff-based “endless groove” is used, in which a base rhythm of drums, muted West African-style guitar, and melodic bass guitar riffs are repeated throughout the song.

11. Fela Kuti – “Mr. Follow Follow”
from: The Underground Spitual Game / Quannum Projects / Sept. 7, 2004 [From Knitting Factory Records: "Over a decade after his death, vindication has come to Fela Kuti, Africa’s musical genius. AfroBeat, his gift to the world, is now an international staple on his own uncompromising terms, social content intact. Throughout his life, Fela contended that AfroBeat was a modern form of danceable, African classical music with an urgent message for the planet’s denizens. Created out of a cross-breeding of Funk, Jazz, Salsa and Calypso with Juju, Highlife and African percussive patterns, it was to him a political weapon. Fela refused to bow to the music industry’s preference for 3-minute tracks, nor did he buckle under entreaties to moderate his overwhelmingly political lyrics. He went down in 1997 still railing against the consumerist gimmicks that taint pop music, with the aim, he felt, of promoting and imposing homogeneous aesthetic standards worldwide, thereby inducing passivity. The fact that AfroBeat is today globally winning hearts in its original form – lengthy, ably crafted, earthy compositions laced with explicitly political lyrics – suggests that Fela’s purgatory on earth may have served to awaken a sensibility in people to appreciate authenticity and substance."]

12. The Hearts of Darkness – “Standing on the Corner”
from: Shelf Life / Shipshape Records / August 25, 2012
[The 15 piece ensemble welcomed 6 additional musicians to record "Shelf Life" their 2nd full-length release, 2 years in the making. Recorded live at the Cooler Studio in Kansas City, Kansas, with Chad Meise, and mastered by Collin Jordan at the Boiler Room in Chicago, using both vintage analog and modern digital technologies. The album will be released on CD and as a limited edition collectible vinyl LP at local music stores, and also available on iTunes.

Writer Brian Clifton in reviewing My Oh My! for http://www.MillsRecordCompany.com wrote: “My Oh My jangles and twangs its way right into your heart. With harmonies so chillingly beautiful they give goosebumps (at least to me), the band creates a sonic barrage of acoustic instruments and heartfelt lyrics. Balancing on a tightrope between country and piano rock, My Oh My blazes off into their songs without hesitation.”

Natalie Gallagher, Music Editor of The Pitch wrote, “Lead singer A.M. Merker has a certain booze-drenched roughness to his voice, the kind that always sounds so good when paired with a rollicking piano and some driving guitar chords.”

Terrie’s plan to commit suicide was interrupted, and she eventually came out to her children, family and friends. With her son Brad Johnson, Terrie is creating a documentary about the life of Nate Phelps, the son of Fred Phelps, Jr., former leader of the notorious Westboro Baptist Church. Terrie and Nate will both be speaking at “God and Gays – Isn’t it time for a different conversation?” – a special Coming Out Day Event, this Saturday, Oct. 11, at 1:00, at The Center For Spiritual Living, 1014 West 39th Street, Kansas City, MO.

Nate Phelps will share his story of leaving home, escaping the persecution of his family, and his new role as a gay rights activist.

Terrie Johnson talked about the persecution she received from her church when she “came out” at 52. She talked about meeting Nate Phelps, and how she and her son Brad became motivated you to make a documentary film about his life.

The film is “Not My Father’s Son,” 40 to 50% of the filming is completed, and that Terrie has been funding the film from her own resources.

To learn more about fundraising to make this film possible go to: http://natephelps.com/ whee you can learn more information about Nate Phelphs and this film.

October 11 is National Coming Out Day. Terrie Johnson, “came out” in August 2012 to your close friends and family, and then she wrote a “coming out” blog on January 1, 2013. “Coming Out” was a very brave thing for her to do. She was immediately asked to leave her church. Her national speaking engagements were cancelled, and she was denounced from the pulpit and called an “abomination.” Her courageous story and clear honesty has made a big difference to so many, and in some cases has made a life and death difference for some of the people she has touched with her story.

Terrie described how she has navigated the waters of this amazing adventure she has been on in these past two years.

Terrie talked why “Coming Out” is so important for all of us.

I’ve always wanted to have a child. Sometimes, desire is all it takes. If you desire it, it will come to you.” “I have a different perspective now that I have a kid, and maybe it will change. But I can’t see giving up music for anything.” Stremeltone Records, was created in her home in Lawrence.

Matthew Roth & Nan Turner of Schwervon!, with Brenton Cook of Haymaker Records, and Dedric Moore of Monta At Odds and Gemini Revolution, on the Oct. 1, 2014, Wednesday MidDay Medley.

Matthew Roth & Nan Turner of Schwervon!, with Brenton Cook of Haymaker Records, and Dedric Moore of Monta At Odds and Gemini Revolution, on the Oct. 1, 2014, Wednesday MidDay Medley.

And then Schwervon take of on their FALL FANTASTICO! TOUR 2014 Starting in St. Louis, to Brooklyn, to Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, France, Germany and beyond. More info at: schwervon.com

From Haymaker Record’s Press Release:

“Broken Teeth is the third release on the label and will be the first in the newly created Home-Fi Series on Haymaker. The Home-Fi Series provides an official release for special home recordings, demos, long-lost rarities and one-offs.

Schwervon! is a two-piece indie-pop rock group consisting of guitarist Matt Roth and drummer Nan Turner. They share vocal duties and also are a couple. After two years of whirlwind touring and Matt’s father Harry’s lung cancer diagnosis, Schwervon! found themselves moving from their Lower East Side apartment in New York City to a basement in a Kansas City suburb. Frustrated with the process of writing new material, Matt and Nan started reworking songs off of their third album, 2006’s I Dream of Teeth, giving it new life through a raw acoustic treatment. The result defies logic: a more vulnerable sound and yet somehow more kinetic.

Schwervon! worked out six songs from I Dream of Teeth, as well as two cover songs, including one by The Vaselines, a group they toured with in 2011, and another by one of their favorite NYC artists, The Purple Organ. The songs for the new stripped down project, dubbed Broken Teeth, were recorded in Schwervon!’s basement practice space in Shawnee, Kansas. The project is an evolution in sound that stands as a symbol for the rebirth Matt and Nan experienced joining Kansas City’s burgeoning art and music scene. It’s also a celebration of renewal, as Matt’s father is now in remission.

Schwervon! departs on an extended tour of the UK and Europe over the months of October and November. Discover the band, the label, tour dates, and the album online at haymakerrecords.net. More Schwervon! information is also available at schwervon.com

15. Voices of Madagascar – “Be Kibo Sy Be Lamaody”
from: Voices of Unbound: Madagascar / Unbound / November 7, 2014
[The Voices of Unbound: Madagascar CD was created to celebrate the talent and culture of our Unbound community. The songs in this collection are entirely their own, and passed on to us to share with the world. Proceeds from each sale go to support education everywhere Unbound works.]

Barclay Martin recently traveled with musician, drummer, engineer and producer, Giuliano Mingucci. The two spent a month recording music written by the local people of Madagascar. The music was recorded in make-shift studios, field recordings, in people’s homes and villages.

from Unbound.org

“THIS MUSIC WAS BORN IN DUSTY STREETS, AND IN FIELDS THAT ECHO THE SOUND OF LIFE SURROUNDING.

Its beauty is raw and unregimented—it can’t be held captive. Because songs like these have hands. They till the land, reaching closer to the heartbeat of a people. It is a call to feel the vibration of life at ground level.

With borrowed instruments, the environment instills vital breath into each song. Amidst fragile and failing systems, each musician has made their song a celebration, and their once-muted voices represent a new arrival.

This collection is evidence that life is abundant in these humble habitations, and that a response to the questions of our time might lie in these songs and in these places.

The solution has always been there.

And it sounds like music.”
