ROGER CLYNE & THE PEACEMAKERS

Genre: Alt-Country, Rock

Sounds Like: Cracker, Reckless Kelly, Cowboy Mouth

Win A Pair Of Tickets: Through the magic of music, Clyne is able to sound romantic in “Green & Dumb” when he sings: “I haunt her house from the outside / I watch her bake cornbread and talk on the phone / And the wireless on the inside plays a sad sweet song / A mute moonlit statue of mine, she waltzes alone.”  Let’s be honest though, if an ex-lover was “haunting your house from the outside,” you’d be a bit less than impressed.  Tell us about some other lyrics that lovely on record, but are actually a bit creepy when taken out of context.

Show Info: High Noon Saloon – 9pm – $10 adv $12 dos – 21+

  1. Nice site! Lucy Wainwright Roche is indeed Loudon Wainwright’s daughter. But her mom is not Kate McGarrigle (that’s Rufus and Martha’s mom), but rather Suzzy Roche of the fabulous Roches.

    Worth seeing both her and Antje, tho !

  2. For Peter Wolf Crier-

    Thank heavens two isn’t the loneliest number because I can think of many great duos that fill a stage, or venue. But tops in my book are The White Stripes.

  3. For Peter Wolf Crier-
    One duo that I’m usually impressed with is actually Goldfrapp. I find it interesting that they’re always reinventing their sound album after album- making people try and catch up with them.

    The other duo that I have in mind is The Black Keys. I shamefully hadn’t listened to them until their recent album Brothers, and I enjoyed everything about that album from it’s sheer bombastic energy and to the soulful throwbacks.

  4. Peter Wolf Crier-

    Some newer duos I’ve been impressed with lately are Chromeo and Kings of Convenience. Both groups have really solidified their place in the electro-funk and indie-folk genres, respectively.

  5. Congrats are in order for Jenn this week! Thanks everybody. Lots of new giveaways coming up this week—be sure to check back!

  6. my favorite musical teacher: stanley jordan. watching some of the stuff that guy does on video is just mind blowing….really opens your mind to what is possible to do with a guitar!
