CAKE- in search of 90s alternative by Pete Crigler
"It was the mid '90's, and I was in sixth grade. One band we all became completely obsessed with was Cake. "The Distance" was all over the radio, and I in particular couldn't get enough. It was weird, quirky, and just strange enough that it captured our attention as few songs or bands had at the moment. By 2002, Cake was out of the public consciousness and had seemingly eradicated themselves. What the hell happened?"
PRINCESS TINYMEAT Post-punk genre-bending madness by Freek Kinkelaar
"Princess Tinymeat turned out to be a four piece led by Daniel Figgis, a former child actor on television and stage who had been active in Dublin's punk scene of the late 1970's. He joined The Virgin Prunes, playing drums and contributing keyboards, under his new moniker Haa Lacka Binttii, on their first two singles and two instrumental tracks. He was unceremoniously kicked out of the band in 1981. Figgis formed Princess Tinymeat three years later."
U2- 'Exit' and its murderous connections by David Chriko
"A few reasons, based on the presence of mainly psychotic mechanisms, can be crystallized as to why Robert Bardo shot to death actress Rebecca Schaeffer July 18th, 1989 in West Hollywood, Los Angeles and what relevance the music of U2 had."
WOODEN WAND- Indie/freak folk interview by Addison Martinez
"I can't begin to talk about the music of James Jackson Toth without first comparing him to the character Jonathan Strange in the British writer Susanna Clark's novel of alternate-history, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. As far as who's who in the real world, I'd say take your pick for a Mr. Norrell, for me, it was Bob Dylan; James Jackson Toth was undoubtedly the adept Jonathan Strange. In fact, it wasn't until I took to my front porch one evening to listen to Toth's instrumental "Lucifer Over Lambeau (Collage 165.3)" and a hailstorm broke out that I realized that I was talking to, and listening to, the man, if not the magician, named Wooden Wand."
