4/24/14: Nirvana

Nirvan_smile

Time flies. Time stands still. 20 years ago can seem like last year. Recently, I was thinking (as I always do) about the mysteries of life. The usual subjects came to mind. Time, space, the power of the groove. In the midst of those deep thoughts, I began contemplating the death of Kurt Cobain and how it really was 20 years ago. That is amazing to me. Like many people of my generation, I remember exactly what I was doing the moment I heard about his death. It was early April 1994. I was moving into an apartment on Campbell Street in Chicago. I heard on WXRT as I was parking to unload my car. Do you recall what you were doing when you heard the news?

That’s why this week on the Fuzz Factory, the Compare/Contrast feature was Nirvana and cover versions of Nirvana songs.

Some Nirvana This Week

This week on the Fuzz Factory, the Compare/Contrast feature will be Nirvana and cover versions of Nirvana songs. Tune into SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org) this Thursday from 8-10 PM (EST).

Recently, I was contemplating the fact that Kurt Cobain died 20 years ago. It was early April 1994. Like many people of my generation, I remember exactly what I was doing the moment I heard about his death. I was moving into an apartment on Campbell Street in Chicago.

20 years ago. Wow.

4/17/14: Jesus Is Lord

jesus likes the fuzz

In honor of this being Holy Week, the holiest of all weeks, the Fuzz Factory had its first ever Jesus is Lord Special Feature! That’s right, I’m fighting back against this Blood Moon negative vibe with some good old fashioned rock & roll religion. I am also reflecting on two other things. The first being memories of being home in Chicago, going to Catholic school and church every Sunday. The second being thoughts about all the rock & roll out there about God and the Lord Jesus. Great rock & roll too, AKA – no Christian rock. After all, Jesus likes authenticity. Therefore, Jesus likes the Fuzz!

The Fuzz Factory with Brett Callero, bringing you great rock & roll every Thursday night from 8-10 PM (EST).  Served fresh to your computer speakers every Thursday. Tell your kick ass cool friends!

4/10/14: The Black Crowes & Drive-By Truckers

creepy_swamp

Yeah, it’s still a little hard for me to believe, but it’s very true. With the exception of a couple of years, I’ve lived in the Deep South since September 2001. It’s been a cultural adjustment for a man like me, a native of Chicagoland. One of the noticeable changes has been my increased appreciation of the Southern Gothic narrative. My awareness and knowledge of quality rock & roll rooted in the southern tradition has been greatly expanded. So that’s why this past week here in the Fuzz Factory I decided to make the Compare/Contrast feature two bands that have set the standard for Southern Rock. I’m referring to Drive-By Truckers (from Athens, GA and Muscle Shoals, AL) and the Black Crowes (Atlanta, GA).

That’s all for now. Make sure you turn on the Fuzz Factory this coming week for the first ever Jesus Show. Yep, the Jesus Show. It’ll be Holy Week, yo. The Fuzz Factory with Brett Callero, bringing you great rock & roll every Thursday night from 8-10 PM (EST).  Served fresh every Thursday. Tell your friends!
