Re: “Spider Bags' Frozen Letter and Flesh Wounds' self-titled

Chemtrails are REAL and not a joke! The Government along with private industry have been testing newer and better ways to control the weather and mask radar signals for many years! Many people feel that they are also using chemtrails to create or treat illness or to actually lower the population of the planet! Different types of chemicals have been found after chemtrail spraying and they include a cocktail of different kinds of heavy metals and some biological agents. Many people experience eye and skin irritation and flu like symptoms after chemtrail spraying. The best way to prevent exposure to chemtrails is to keep a quality USA Made HEPA air purifier like the TRACS HEPA air purifier in the bedroom and family room because these chemical agents find their way indoors as well and many people find it beneficial to do a heavy metal detox with the natural mineral called Zeolite that has been proven to safely remove both heavy metals and radioactive isotopes from the human body! For more information on this detox mineral do a search for the single word Zeolite.

Re: “What do you do when one of your favorite bands becomes an utter embarrassment?

First of all the word SCAB isn't associated with someone that has been fired from their job. It is used for union workers that go on strike and are replaced with fill ins until the union comes to an agreement with the business.

Secondly the so called SCAB you refer to is running circles around Tate by out performing the washed up former singer! The bottom line is shit happens and bands don't always stay with the original members. One thing I know from the two years I've experienced with this current line-up is they all get along and gel well with each other. That is going to take this band places. They are just getting started!

And here is a footnote to ponder about:
Bruce Dickerson, Ronnie James Dio, Sammy Hagar quickly come to mind for not being an original band member so are you going to call those singers SCABS too?

Re: “What do you do when one of your favorite bands becomes an utter embarrassment?

Clearly you haven't had the time to listen to any of the shows the original members with LaTorre have been playing. When you walk in, you have doubts, when you walk out you are wearing a shirt, Like the page on Facebook, wipe the saliva off of your chin and remember the energy and the music played the way it was played when you were a teenager. LaTorre has given them their liveliness and their livelihood back. You have to understand that this is a job that pays for a mortgage and kids to go to college. The guys are playing shows to make that happen. Rebuilding the Empire, pardon the pun, that was destroyed by Geoff and his wife controlling every move they made. They are off to a great start rebuilding as most reputable news outlets will agree. But then most reputable reporters wouldn't call a musician a scab either. Way to voice your true opinion ... your band broke up and now you want to cry about it. Sounds like you do remember what its like after all to be a teenager because your rhetoric in this article sounded just like one.

Re: “The struggle: Through trial and travail, newscaster and singer Pam Saulsby enters a second act

I just moved back to the area too and had been wondering why I didn't see her on WRAL anymore. I am so glad she is back on her feet. I'll be watching WNCN from now on.

Re: “Brooklyn MC Jean Grae gets ready to go "music heavy"

Dear deejay C. Geez, I'm sorry that this "article" "sucks." However, it didn't "suck" when I met her before this concert, backstage, where she filled up a water gun with Jack Daniels and shot it in my mouth.

Wonderful Interview and I'm glad to hear from Lisa. I wonder what advice she would give to an aspiring and awesome lyricist trying to get a break??

Re: “Old Quarter's Gone, Not Forgotten

From the title of the article I thought they had broken up. I was relieved to discover that is not the case. I've only seen them twice and was distraught momentarily. I guess I'll get more chances after all. Good.

There are other options in the Triangle, options that are much more secure. Check out Haggard Studios in North Raleigh www.haggardstudios.com

Re: “The modest, mild origins of perhaps the only complete Merge collection

Can't believe I missed that, David. Thanks for spotting it and letting me know. It's been fixed.

Re: “The modest, mild origins of perhaps the only complete Merge collection

Great article. One note though: while I like the mental image of Chuck playing guitar, I think you've got the instruments for Jack Cook and Chuck Garrison mixed up.

Re: “The new album from former Carolina Chocolate Drop Dom Flemons is all quick hits, nervous fits

A few years back I heard an NPR segment about the Chocolate Drops and discovered they would be playing at The Atlanta History Center. I drove up from Miami for the show and was totally blown away. As a vintage Taj Mahal/roots guy I actually felt a little vindicated by the young folks going my way. A few years later I made the trip to Boone, NC for Black Banjo...A fascination that began in the 60s when my parents advised me that all the songs on a Lovin' Spoonful album were old black country stuff will continue with Arizona Red's new one.

Re: “Cry of Love vocalist Kelly Holland died depressed, but not alone

Time really does Fly By. It seems like only Yesterday that I was at the Cry of Love CD Release Party tossin back a few Cold Ones with some "Raleigh Boys", having packed my Van full of friends ("Durham Boys") heading to the "MOST HAPPENING JAMS" off Hillsborough St. that Night! This is indeed painful news- I only knew Kelly casually through Friends in the Raleigh Scene. Rest in Peace Brother. I am still recovering from the loss of Friend/Guitarist Wade Clifton- close to 10 years ago Now! My condolences to all Family & Friends of all Great Local Musicians lost too young. . .

I do hope you set him straight on Durham's status as a "metropolis."
