Another F'n Podcast With Izzy Presley: Episode #34 - Ben Reagan



Another F'n Podcast with Izzy Presley - episode #34 is up now!

Minnesota rocker dude and PR guy (now relocated and living in Los Angeles, California) and the only guy I know who actually has a Flipp tattoo, Izzy Presley brings you interviews and commentary on various music and entertainment related topics...and whatever the hell else he might feel like discussing!

This week Izzy lays down his exact thoughts about check cashing joints and pay day loan sharks. Then Jeff Bauer aka The Great Bobboo returns for some fantasy football talk. And the main interview this week features a nice little conversation with Ben Reagan from Riche Ramone's band - he talks about their upcoming US dates (Dallas Oct. 30, Tulsa Oct. 31, and Chicago Nov. 1) and upcoming European show dates in November and December.
Enough with the formalities, let's get to it!

========================
Update: Photo/Video Recap!
========================

An unseasonably pleasant late October evening provided the perfect backdrop for us to get out and enjoy some live music for the first time in several weeks this last weekend. The fact that the billing at the Terminal Bar in Minneapolis on this particular Saturday evening featured friends and family was an easy sell, so off we went to check it out.

First up, not too long after we arrived, was an additional "band" not listed, "Indian Joe" I heard someone say they were called. We also heard they were called "The Recyclers." This was a trio of "older" guys doing some classic rock covers including a pretty sweet one by the Moody Blues. They started off as two guitarists, one of whom handled vocals, and a bassist who was really, really into his groove. A few songs into their set, Sons of Gloria drummer Tom Cook arrived with his gear and in no time at all he had his kit set up and ready to go. He then proceeded to sit in with the band for a few songs as they finished their opening set.

-Billy Dankert-

Next up was a solo set of songs from Gear Daddies drummer Billy Dankert. This is the second or third time that I'm aware of that he has played a solo set such as this around town this summer. The songs he does when performing on his own include some things he's written more recently and songs that go way back to the early years of The Gear Daddies. Doing these sets he stretches musically as well, stepping out from behind the drum kit to play guitar while simultaneously doing a solo vocal.

After his solo set was finished, he was shortly to be right back at it, this time sitting back behind the drum kit for the next band of the evening, Doug Collins and the Receptionists. Billy has played a few gigs with them just recently and seems to be a great, natural fit with this fun bunch of guys.

Receptionists bassist Charlie Varley was the other musician to pull double duty throughout the course of the evening. With a few minutes break between sets, he was soon back on stage once again with another one of his other bands, The Sons Of Gloria, the final band of the evening.

We last saw the Sons of Gloria at the Terminal back in the spring so it was cool to finally get a chance to see  them again. I was actually still out back visiting with some people when the band started their set so I missed their first few songs. One inside, I spent a song or two taking some photos, most of which turned out horribly due to the low lighting inside the club. Eventually I got around to getting some video, managing to get about the last half of the band's set, which we share with you here.

For the bands final song of the evening they were joined by Doug Collins of Doug Collins and the Receptionists who stepped up on stage once more with the band to add additional vocals and some fancy, very entertaining pseudo-Pee Wee Herman-ish dance moves to the song "Scatter Me."



Sons of Gloria Full Setlist:
Thunderbird/ Royal Wedding/ Occupation/ Marigold/ Bitter/ Railway Station/ Plea/ Changed/ New Song/ Goin' Uptown/ High School '79/ Scatter Me

Checking Out Just A Few Of The Numerous Events At The 2014 CBGB Festival In New York City with DaveCromwellWrites


(Image via Dave Cromwell)

In July of 2012 The Gorgeous One and I were happy to be in New York City not only on our honeymoon but in town as well for the 4th of July...and the first ever CBGB Music Festival. It was pretty damn great actually. Anyway, while attending a Ramones film screening as part of the CBGB Festival, waiting outside on the sidewalk to go in, we met and made fast friends with a guy named Dave Cromwell who...happens to blog...over at DaveCromwellWrites. Then we happened to run into him again the following day in Times Square at a free Duff McKagan's Loaded show in 100* heat. We've stayed in touch.

Since Dave is lucky enough to find himself in NYC, he's been able to attend the CBGB Festival again this year...as he did last year, and in 2012 when we met him. That's his paw up there holding his VIP Media pass for this year that allowed him entry to a whole slew of events over the course of a few days beginning October 8th and running through the 12th. Dave has just published a photo heavy review of several of the CBGB events he attended covering a diverse roster of artists including: Daniel Lanois/ Lily and the Parlour Tricks/ Mother Feather/ Billy Idol and Steve Stevens/ The Walking Papers with Duff McKagan/ Ex-Cops/ The Pinkslips with Grace McKagan/ and more.

You can and should check it all out at

Dead Label US Tour 2014 Continues

Dead Label US Tour Poster (10/18/14 - 11/15/14)

A great band we've been keeping our eye on for a while now, the wonderfully noisy Irish Hardcore trio Dead Label have been in the US for at least a few weeks now already, doing some well received live shows and recording some new material while they're here as well. That new stuff is supposed to surface "soon" according to the band. Meanwhile, they continue to cross the country on their first-ever US Tour. Upcoming show dates listed above. For those unfamiliar with the band, check out the 2012 video for their track "Self Immolation."



...go check 'em out if you get a chance.
