Songs of silver from Uriah Heep, Rodriguez, The Knitters, Sonic Youth, Wanda Jackson, and many more!
I think Cut The Crap could have been a great record if Bernie Rhodes’ production wasn’t so inept. This early live version of “North and South” reveals not only that the final Clash lineup was super-tight, but that they also had some solid songs to work with.
It’s time for “Southern Girls!” Cheap Trick In Budokan is a great live album to be sure, but the cover makes it seem like all those screaming Japanese teenagers were swooning over Robin Zander and Tom Petersson. This video makes it clear what’s really happening: Rick Nielsen is prowling the stage, grinning and mugging, throwing picks and thumbs ups all around like a manic children’s television presenter.
Songs from the north, south, east and west with Cheap Trick, Muddy Waters, Cayucas, Don Dixon, Ha Ha Tonka and more!
A month ago, New Missionaries played our first gig at Transistor Chicago. Even though we weren’t able to play as loud as we do in practice and I kept breaking strings, this video of the full set turned out pretty well. If you’re in Chicago, be sure to come out to Reggie’s May 25 - we get to kick out the jams at full volume!
New Missionaries are first and foremost a rock band, but here’s a laid-back acoustic take of one of Randi’s songs. (And feel free to purchase the track on Bandcamp to help finance the recording of our debut EP!)
This week, a conversation with Randi Russo, a singer-songwriter whose finely crafted lyrics and unique guitar style that made her a favorite of New York City’s anti-folk scene. Since moving to Chicago, I became her bandmate in New Missionaries. Featuring songs from her solo albums, as well as an exclusive New Missionaries live track!
An hour of songs about boys from Scruffy The Cat, David Bowie, The Shirelles, Divinyls, Those Darlins and more!
