Where Can I Stick This Plug?

Hey music fans, I'm helping to run yet another MySpace page for a great band. (Tom who?) My pals and former Bogmen, Billy and Brendan Ryan, have teamed up with legendary songwriter, Gordon Gano of the Violent Femmes, to form a new musical project called GanoRyan. Six of the 22 songs they recorded are up on the MySpace page for your listening pleasure, and we should have stuff available for download soon. I strongly suggest that you mosey on over there and take a listen.

GanoRyan's Space

I don't think I have any frat boy readers but, just in case, a little warning: If you're expecting "Blister in the Sun" Parts I - VI, you might be disappointed. Just continue that game of flip cup already in progress.

great blog - I'll have to head over to myspace now!

I'm going over to take a listen because:
a) Gord Gano is awesome
b) I'm all for supporting friends' of friends' bands

but damn GanoRyan is an awful name!

Okay, I've listened and these songs are really really good. Thanks for the heads up on this new supa-band, Beckeye. But Jesus Christ on a cracker, they need a new name.

Cool link Becks, thanks. We went to see the Femmes for the spousal unit's 30th birthday a few years back. Gano and Co. are dressing their age now but they still rocked the songs!

And I agree with Barb, I hope that name is a work-in-progress.

How do you have so many cool friends? :)


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
