11:17 – Interview with Folkicide

13. Folkicide – “Empire of The Ants”
from: Devotional Hymns From the Church of the Darwinian Snuff Film / August 15, 2011

[Folkicide plays Czar Sat. Feb. 9 with Ari Lehman the original Jason Voorhees.]

[Folkicide plays Davey’s Uptown, 3402 Main St., Wed. February 13, in an acoustic set, with Rabbit Killer and Major Matt Mason USA.]

“Devotional Hymns From the Church of the Darwinian Snuff Film” was the 3rd full length release from KC based singer-songwriter, Folkicide, who has described his music as “despair-core” and writes that his vision of constructive pessimism, he hopes in time, will be recognized as a new acoustical genre, fully devoted to the documentation of the delightful futility of existence. Since 2010 Folkicide has released 4 full-length recordings and one EP, writing and arranging and recording over 60 tracks. Folkicide is also a visual artist. His works are currently on display at The Midwestern Musical Co. in the Crossroads. Folkicide plays Czar Sat. Feb. 9 with Ari Lehman the original Jason Voorhees. Folkicide also plays Davey’s Uptown, 3402 Main St. Wed. Feb 13, in an acoustic set, with Rabbit Killer and Major Matt Mason USA

Folkicide translated is death of folk? Folkicide explained his transition from Punk and Rock and Roll to his solo work playing non-electric. The sounds of the acoustic guitar, the expression.

Folkicide would appear to be KC’s own Nihilist anti-hero, truly rejecting all religious and moral principles, in the belief that life is meaningless.

“Empire of The Ants” is one of Folkicide’s songs from a few years ago, that he is adding drums for a future Mikal Shapiro video involving the song.

The titles of Folkicide’s recordings reflect the darkness of his songs and lyrics: Let’s Worship Degenerates, Ultimate Decimation Blues, Devotional Hymns From the Church of the Darwinian Snuff Film, The Genocide is Mean.

Last year Folkicide released “The Genocide is Mean” EP in July 1, 2012. Most of the music was recorded on May 11, 2012, by Chubby Smith at his magical tractor shed in Perry, KS.

After four years of tinkering with the idea, Folkicide’s NATO was finally recorded during April through August 2012 by Jonathan Brokow (the Anti-Roy Thomas Baker) mostly in the Folkicide basement via 4 track cassette.

It was engineered and mastered mid-August by David Moore at Merriam Shoals Studio.

All songs were originally composed by the various Queen members and then strategically deconstructed by Folkicide Mercury without disrespect or irony intended because he truly loves Queen (well, pre-Hot Space Queen anyway) and NATO in particular.

Even though the songs were written by Queen, the lyrics, especially Bohemian Rhapsody seems perfect for Folkicide’s “pessimistic exploration into the decaying frame of Western Civilization.”

Folkicide discussed the challenges of covering an entire record.

14. Folkicide – “Bohemian Rhapsody”

8. The Clementines – “Fair Trade”
from: The Clementines [EP] / Independent / Mar. 8, 2012
[Tim Jenkins & Nicole Springer are The Clementines]

Sasha Banks in Overground Magazine wrote, “When The Clementines hit the stage, they pretty much set the benchmark for excellence. Classically trained guitarists, with an alternative folk style with strong, sultry vocals, this duo did nothing short of completely shaking The Brick to the ground.” Tim Jenkins & Nicole Springer, are The Clementines, and they will play The Riot Room, tonight Wednesday, April 25, at 8:00 PM. They also play Jerry’s Bait Shop on Monday, April 30.

Tim & Nicole were introduced by a mutual friend, Craig, in late February of 2011.

The Clementines have been together since last February, when Springer put out a Craigslist ad seeking a musical collaborator. She received a number of responses but was most impressed by Jenkins. (“I’ve been playing for about 12 years but mostly just in garage bands that never left the garage,” Jenkins says.) They met and clicked, and in April they started gigging regularly at local open-mic nights. Since that time, they have written over 20 songs and have even recorded a demo.

The Clementines, music is labeled: acoustic alt. rock, blues, jazz, & folk-pop.

The Clementines, get their name from the main character in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Nicole Springer grew up in Oak Grove, Missouri, and graduated H.S. in 2004. She studied Music-Vocal/Choral at Missouri State University, in Springfield, Missouri, and studied Special Education with Music at Metropolitan MO CC, in KCMO.

Nicole told The Pitch (in a Jan. 10, 2012 article): “I grew up singing in gospel choirs, in Oak Grove,” she says. “And I still love gospel music, though I’m not religious or anything. I did musicals throughout high school, and I went to school for a year at Missouri State for music education. But I’ve never been in a committed band before this one.”

Nicole told David Hudnall of The Pitch: (her) vision for the Clementines was initially inspired by the Irish folk duo the Swell Season. “I had just seen them in concert before I put up that ad,” Springer says. “They’re just so passionate, and I wanted to do something that had that much soul in it. It’s the same reason I like Aretha or the Gossip.”

Tim Jenkins grew up in KC. Studied at UMKC. He has been playing music for over 12 years.

From David Hudnall’s article in The Pitch: Jenkins, a fan of “geek rock, like ’70s prog stuff,” brought a different sensibility to the table.

“I usually bring in a song,” Springer says, “and Tim will tweak it and add solos and sometimes a riff ― he helps complete it.” “I think we know what our strong suits are,” Jenkins says. “Nicole’s voice is the main draw. And we try to mix that with a blues-folk sound that has a little pop sensibility.”

“The Midcoast Takeover Benefit shows are created to raise funds specifically for the expense of two full days (and night) of the showcase in Austin, Texas, at The SXSW Music Festival. Renting a venue in a prime area is expensive. Unlike a lot of other showcases, the Kansas City organizers invest in top notch production for sound and lights, which are transported to Austin and back home. In addition, there are advertising costs, website design and maintenance, printing costs for posters and handbills. The showcase in Austin is free to the public, so organisers raise all the funds in advance. Everyone involved works to ensure that our Kansas City bands have the best production and best support that organisers can manage.”

MidCoast Takeover was born from The Midwest Music Foundation a not-for-profit organization that has the amazing mission of supporting and helping to create a safety net for our amazing, hard working, local musical artists. The Midwest Music Foundation has given birth to many annual events to raise funds and awareness for the Kansas City Music Scene. MidCoast Takeover is rooted this amazing objective.

Chris and Mark talked about some of the other principle organizers of MidCoast Takeover: Rhonda Lyne, Christopher Meck, Abigail Henderson, Sondra Freeman, and Amy Farrand. These people have donated hours and hours of time and work, to help make our Kansas City music community stronger.

“It takes a village”

Chris talked about the community involvement in MidCoast Takeover and the 2012 SPONSORS: The Brick, CM2 Audio, Czar, Harvest Productions, INK, Midwest Music Foundation, Record Bar, Riot Room, XO, Blackwater, TV Party, Boulevard Brewing Co., C & C Custom Drums, Chipotle, Mammoth/Hunt Productions, Scarlett Amps, Seen Merch, KC Creative Crossroads, J Naatz Design, Mike Nickells Studio, Pipeline Productions, and Eleven Productions.

11:10 – Interview with Jerad Colton Tomasino & Ross Brown of Golden Sound Records.

Ross Brown & Jerad Tomasino are two of the founders (w/ Mat Shoare) of Golden Sound Records.

Ross Brown grew up in West rural Olathe. His band Fullbloods will be in concert this Sat, Feb 18, at 10:00 PM at The Brick, 1727 MCGEE, w/ Richard the Lionhearted from Columbia and Millions of Boys from Omaha, w/ an acoustic set by Jerad Tomasino.

Jerad Tomasino moved around a lot growing up but spent some of his high school years living in Omaha. Jerad has released solo recordings and his also a member of the critically acclaimed band, Everyday/Everynight. Jerad and Ross join us today to talk about Golden Sound Records, their involvement in the Midcoast Takeover 2012, The Middle of The Map Festival and the Kansas City Music Scene.

For info you can visit: goldensoundrecords.com

Ross grew up in west rural Olathe.

Jerad came from a Military family, and moved around alot, but claims Omaha as a hometown.

Ross Brown started playing trumpet in junior high school band and continued through high school playing euphonium, guitar and bass in jazz band, and singing in choir. Music classes were all he took from “public school” during high school. He started writing music when he picked up guitar around 12 years old. He picked up bass and drums shortly afterwards to accompany myself on recordings. Singing wasn’t really his thing until after high school.

Jerad told us that he was one of those kids who always sang along to the radio in the car. He picked up the guitar around 7 years old. He took up acting for most of his childhood, but spent countless hours with his ears full of radio and his eyes glued to MTV. He was addicted to studying pop music. Singing was his primary form of music making until Christmas of 2000 when he got his first electric guitar. He wrote his first riff/song, “Stuff” when he was 11 and played around until he moved to Omaha. At 13 he performed his first original song, “Chocolate Warfare”, at a local talent show and got hooked. He ditched acting and set his sights on music.

Ross Brown went to DeSoto high school for a year and home-schooled the rest. After that he took a two-year audio engineering course at BRC Audio Productions, where he met Jerad and everyone in his band Fullbloods.

Jerad Tomasino went to Bellevue West, in Bellevue, Nebraska for 2 years, then he attended Lee’s Summit West for 2 years. After high school Jerad started attending classes at BRC Audio Productions where he double majored in Music Ed. and Music Therapy at The Conservatory. He had a mental breakdown, changed majors and started EverydayEverynight. Jerad will graduate from the University of Missouri at Kansas City this year majoring in Music Composition with a minor in Entrepreneurship.

Jerad met Ross at BRC, and connected with Mat Shoare and Evan Ashby while in choir at The Conservatory at UMKC. Mat Shoare is also a founding member of Everyday/Everynight and a founding partner in Golden Sound Records.

14. The Empty Spaces – “Starting Over”

The Empty Spaces are one of 26 bands chosen to represent KC at the MidCoast Takeover at SXSW in Austin, The Empty Spaces will be in concert Feb. 25th @ Riot Room w/ i hate you just kidding]

11:20

Why start a record label?

Ross Brown told us about how he and Jerad and Mat, wanted a platform for their own music and an organized body to support and encourage others to continue making music. Golden Sound Records keeps them involved in, and accountable to their craft.

Jerad told us about how music is always about more than yourself. Even the music that we personally create (as a necessity) must bounce off of other people to truly resonate. So, for Jerad, the idea of a label is an extension of his artistic output; fostering ideas and projects into realization. It makes him a stronger musician and more fulfilled person to touch and be touched by the records and artists he works with. On a logistical front, this label centralizes their efforts, and gives context to the art that is deemed as cool and lets Golden Sound Records present it in a specific way.

11:15 – Interview with Marc Shipley

Marc Shipley, son of Tom Shipley of the musical folk-rock duo: Brewer & Shipley. Marc Shipley joins us to discuss Occupy KC which was inspired by Occupy Wall Street is an ongoing series of demonstrations in New York City, based in Zuccotti Park on Wall Street. These protests were inspired by the Arab Spring movement, especially Cairo’s Tahrir Square protests. Occupiers are protesting social and economic inequality, corporate greed, as well as the power and influence of corporations, particularly from the financial service sector, and lobbyists over government. in under 2 months, hundreds of thousands of people have demonstrated in over 900 cities. Occupy KC set up their site, on Sept. 27, 2011, at 1 Memorial Drive near the Federal Reserve Bank of KC, just south of Liberty Memorial.

Occupy KC!

The Occupy Wall Street protests seem to have entered a new phase as officials in several cities have moved in to clear camp sites and ban tents.

In New York City, the Occupy Wall Street headquarters at Zuccotti Park thinned considerably overnight after a judge ruled that the ejected protesters could return but without their camping equipment and tarps. Police even stopped people from bringing blankets into the lower Manhattan park. About 25 protesters stayed in the park overnight, but they were outnumbered by police and sanitation workers, WABC-TV reported.

Oakland and Berkeley, Calif., officials have enforced similar bans on overnight stays.

How did you get involved in OccupyKC?

The organizational structure: horizontal, transparent, consensus-based process during our General Assemblies, and you are encouraged to participate. The Occupiers are quick to note that this is a movement with no official leaders or titles. The is a community, consensus approach to decision making, planning.

GENERAL ASSEMBLIES (GAs) are held every night at 6:30pm. Everyone is welcome. Times for other events are on the Calendar. The group has joined with labor leaders, and activists and community members from a wide range.

November 17th is a national day of action against policies that have enriched the 1% while impoverishing the 99%.

Occupy KC askes, How can we continue to bail out the rich and prop up corrupt corporations when we have 30 million unemployed and underemployed Americans? Our roads are crumbling. Our sewers are rotting. Our schools are falling apart! How can we afford to keep blowing up infrastructure in overseas wars of aggression, and spend $44.6 billion in taxpayer funds on rebuilding Iraq, when so much work needs to be done here at home?

On November 17th Occupy KC will declare an Economic Emergency for the 99%. People in KC and in 35 other cities across the country will gather at structurally unsound bridges and other decaying infrastructure sites to demand that America stop enriching the 1% at the expense of basic needs that benefit all. It’s time to get America back to work. We call on Congress to create job growth, cut foreign spending, and make Wall Street pay.

Location: Prospect Bridge over I-70
Date: Thursday, November 17
Time: 4-6 PM

In this new production, Heidi, David and Bess continue the romp, poking fun at their hybrid celebrity character who is equal parts: Kim Kardashians, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears. “Bump” opens last Friday night and continues through Nov. 14 at the Fishtank Performance Studio, 1715 Wyandotte St. For more info you can visit: fishtanktheater.com.
