Street Legal

The trials and tribulations of running all-ages venues in Salt Lake City.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Teen-agers were and are mother’s milk to rock & roll; without swooning, it would have stopped at Elvis. Oddly, they’re persona non grata at many places where rock is served. The reason is strictly fiscal—venue owners have to make...

Crawling Kingsnakes

Salt Lake City trio Parchman Farm harvest the blues—real blues, thank you.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - The Mississippi State Penitentiary, circa the 1940s, was known as Parchman Farm, a brutish institution that signified a last bastion of slavery, despite its federal proprietorship and the alleged misdeeds of the incarcerated. Delta blues legends and one-time...

Advantage: Rocket

Form of Rocket aren’t rock stars yet, but they’re enjoying the spoils and the Lumber.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Form of Rocket isn’t a local band anymore—that is, if you subscribe to the theory that a record deal negates roots. Since signing to New York City indie label Some Records (Eric Mingus, Six Going On Seven, The Exit) last year, the complexity...

All Shook Down

Back from Portland, James Shook settles down again in Salt Lake City.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - The Utah vortex got me,” says James Shook, one of several fine Salt Lake musicians we’d lost to the lush Portland, Ore., scene. During the ’90s, Shook was busy on the Salt Lake music scene with his bands Loose and James Shook & the...

Hazardous Material

New Orleans’ Hazard County Girls blast beyond gender generalizations.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - New Orleans’ Hazard County Girls are just like any other travelin’ rock band, ridin’ in a van and rubberneckin’ at road wrecks. That’s a point Hazard County Girls vocalist-guitarist Christy Kane makes. By virtue of their...

Twofer

Blue Hour spell out their split-CD with Alchemy.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Hey local bands—you know how you’re always bitchin’ about not having enough money to put out a CD? There’s a solution, which bands around the country seem to have down, and yet Salt Lake bands rarely, if ever, employ: the split...

Bass Case

Primus’ Les Claypool continues to get his freak on—this time with Frog Brigade.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - The brain, although a magnificent, finely tuned (well, one would hope) machine, is also a lumpy mass of flesh. Superficially, its meandering crevices hint not at the intrinsic electrical zapping behind basic bodily functions and deep analytical or creative...

She & Him

SLC hip-hop/trip-hoppers FurtherMore come out of their shells on She & I.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - There’s a man and a woman sitting outside Bluekats Coffee in Sugar House. From the parking space at the mouth of 2100 South’s curvy tangent—once home to the great novelty store Anzio’s, the Heavy Metal Shop and some wacky Pakistani...

Gomez Comes Alive

U.K. eclectics Gomez are back from vacation with In Our Gun.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Somewhere in the United Kingdom, Gomez drummer Olly Peacock is attacking vocalist-guitarist Ben Ottewell. There may have been some mention of the word “fag.” Maybe now is not a good time for an interview. “Sorry … Olly was just...

Hello, Kitty

Bogus butt-rockers Danger Kitty pay tribute to the Metal Gods.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - It smells like sex in Danger Kitty’s dressing room backstage at Liquid Joe’s. Oddly, despite the array of wigs, makeup, scarves and assorted bangles littering the room, no women are present. Vocalist Nigel Thames (pronounced “Tems,”...
