  • A Q&A with David Slade of American Princes

    January 5, 2015
    I’ve followed the musical career of David Slade since 1994, when I saw him in a band of young upstarts called Halo 8 at a Fresh Blood Night show at Vino’s Brewpub (before they even added the Brewpub part). I think they also opened for one of my first bands. He’s been one of the forces behind American Princes, along with Matt Quin, from their beginning in 2001. /more/

    I first saw The Moving Front live over seven years ago, their album release show (also at White Water) during the first day of “Towncraft” week, a group of events commemorating the documentary’s release. I remember running into Scott Cook that night and him asking me, "Why are you not still playing music?" I took his advice, and now Scott plays guitar and sings back up as one of the newest members of The Moving Front. /more/

  • Tangerine Dream, art theft, 'Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me' and more

    Edgar Froese, the founder and only consistent member of the band Tangerine Dream, died on Tuesday, though it wasn't until today that the news really spread. Froese accomplished a lot of incredible and implausible things in his life — this is a man who both studied with Salvador Dali and recorded the soundtrack to Grand Theft Auto V. He also helped invent and legitimize Krautrock, electronic music and New Age, scored films by Fassbender, William Friedkin, Ridley Scott and Michael Mann, and was the only consistent member of a genuinely innovative band for several decades.
