I decided it’s time to get back to the reason I made this blog. To write about each and every release I’ve ever put out in chronological order. I’ve already wrote about Free Emerald State’s Volume 1 (my first cd), Dables’ Slacker Pop, 14 Songs, Pretty Ugly, Closet Monster’s Smoke Pot Kill Your Family (another old band of mine), and DAN’s first album Magic Mountain.  If you want to read about any of those, just put dables in the search box on my page because they are all rather old blog entries.

ANYWHO, here is the second release from my old band DAN, titled “Grandparents Forever”. It came out in January of 2010 on my self-run label Slacker Pop Records.

Here are the album credits:
David Walker - guitar, etc.
Clayton Marks - bass, etc.
Sid Shurer - vocals, etc.

Our buddies who helped:
Tucker-background vocals on “Lazy and Proud” & “Some More Stupid Shit”
Shelby-background vocals on “I Threw Up Off The Porch” & farts on “Disco Amoeba”
Cody-voicemail on “Cody’s Moving Back to Town”
Brittany-background vocals on “Super Anal Party”

Basically this was just a continuation of our first album Magic Mountain, although we moved away from a punk sound, going more for a psychedelic sound and trying harder to write funnier songs. The whole idea was to write short songs, usually only with one or two riffs, that just get straight to the point and hopefully would both rock and be funny. We were basically just trying to entertain ourselves. Not really a whole lot else to say about this album.

“Livin’ in The Basement” is probably my favorite DAN song, and it’s about how Sid and Clayton lived in Sid’s parent’s house basement, where we recorded about 95% of this album (the rest was recorded in my bedroom at my house). 

“Bubblegum and Kicking Ass” is another one of my favorites and is basically just a They Live reference.

“Cody’s Moving Back to Town” features a voicemail my friend Cody Blackwell left me informing me that he was moving back to Fountain Inn after living in Savannah, GA for the past 2 and half years. I recorded the entire song by myself. I was stoked that he was moving back and shortly after he came back, we formed the current lineup of Dables.

“John Lennon’s Uncircumcised Penis” was inspired by the cover of John Lennon’s Two Virgins album.  It is also the most played & downloaded song on bandcamp and it brings my site a lot of traffic. People looking for pictures of John Lennon’s dick I guess. Not surprisingly the second most played/downloaded song is “Super Anal Party”. Go figure.

Immediately after finishing this one, we started working on another album that was going to be called Honey Berry Surprise (named after a blunt wrap) but it never got finished. We played two shows as DAN. One house show that went ok, and one show at The Hangar in Greenville that was awful.  My guitar’s input broke on the first song and I had to borrow someone else’s and the sound was horrible and there were maybe 10 people there. That’s about all there is to say about Grandparents Forever. I hope you listen to it and laugh as much as we did while recording it.

SHOW PREVIEW: Benny Blackwell Benefit at Radio Room/Chi Cheng Benefit at Ground Zero

With the holidays just around the corner, ’tis the season to give. And if that’s one things bands from the Upstate have showed in the past few years it’s their compassion for different causes and their ability to rally others for it as well. With that being said, tonight is no different both in Greenville and in Spartanburg.

ALBUM REVIEW: Dables – Dables

It’s been a long-time coming, but the full-band debut of Dables is finally here. For those unfamiliar with Dables, it was originally the solo project of Fountain Inn musician and Daniel Johnston worshipper, David Walker. Over the past several years he had been quite prolific as a solo artist, but eventually his desire to make a louder noise led him to forming a full band incarnation with Cody Blackwell and Jake Garrett both trading off bass and drum duties.

Algún día voy a estar re buena, diosa, potra, dable, todo, y no le voy a dar bola a nadie. SÍ, MIRA, JUSTÓ A VOS, SÍ, A VOS NO TE VOY A DAR BOLA, PELOTUDO.
John The Revelator - Stagnant Water(2011)

Available on the internet for the first time, and for free download for a limited time only, local legend John The Revelator aka Jake Garrett, the drummer for Dables, brings you his latest solo album and I think it rules. He recorded it on my Tascam Portastudio in the course of two weeks when I let him borrow it. LISTEN OR DIE!!

Happy New Year! Look forward to these in 2013...

Well it’s a neaw year so that means New shows, new music, and good times. First keep your eyes and ears open for a New album which should be out in Feb. or March. It is a split album done with our friends Dables. Also we don’t have too many shows booked yet, but we’ve been working on some new tracks and hope to go to the Jam Room Studio to record our 2nd album. THis will likely happen in the Summer and MAY, be released late this year. Hope everyone enjoyed 2012, and get ready because we’re going to help make 2013 one hell of a year. -MJM

INTRODUCING: Un_Scene (Music of a Different Flavor) First Show

Many of our readers are probably familiar with Greenville gangsters and pranksters, Din of Thieves. But what they may be unfamiliar with is lead singer Caleb Riley’s ambitions outside of the band. In addition to many solo and collaborative electronic projects, Riley has also been planning his own venture into the arts, and hosting events under the name “Un_Scene”. Their first gathering is this Friday February 3rd at The Artistry in the West End of Greenville. Musical acts will include David Walker of Dables, and Leigh Steinhouse of Romancing The Devil. We caught up with Caleb Riley to discuss the details of the event, and most importantly if there was going to be alcohol provided!

Hi Im not a meth user. I also am a firm believer in freedom of choice and like to dable in drugs myself. I do however have a question, for those people (of which I'm sure are not the majority) who use meth and experience some form of psychosis as a result of the meth and/ or in combination with a mental health diagnosis prior what would be your advice?

Seek help. Not only for your addiction, but for the life long battle you’re about to face with your mental disorder. There is no shame in asking for help.

Cher journal,
j’ai passé une journée formidable ! La bruine était de circonstance et la côte de bœuf. Cette baraque au papier hyper peint nous a offert un jardin digne de ces coins de verdures qui font du bien de se mettre au vert. Bonne compagnie, bons légumes, bon délire. Il nous aura malheureusement fallu quitter cette joie pour en vivre une autre, celle du spectacle de danse classique à l’Opéra, tranquille. Le passage à la maison n’aurait du nous offrir que la possibilité d’imprimer les billets et de changer de godasses, mais tu sais ce que c’est, la fièvre du samedi soir ! Étant dans l’incapacité totale d’ouvrir la porte de l’appartement, c’est à Dominique, serrurier de quartier, bonhomme, mal an, que nous avons passé un coup de fil. Tu aurais du voir les étincelles que sa machine a balancé tandis qu’elle déchiquetait notre porte en échange de quelques centaines d’euros ! Non, vraiment, for-mi-dable !

Il est l’une des roues motrices du carrosse Club Cheval. Il fait partie à part entière de la grande famille du label Bromance aux côtés de Brodinski. Oui, Myd est de retour avec dans les bras un nouvel EP baptisé “Nùméro Uno” qui sera disponible pour le bonheur de nos petites esgourdes le 25 mai prochain.

Ce nouveau venu comportera deux tracks originales et deux remixes, dont un bâtit par les mains de son compère Canblaster. Et on se réjouit déjà de ce qui va arriver, surtout que Myd n’a pas sorti de projet solo depuis deux ans. 

Il nous propose donc un premier aperçu de ce Nùmero Uno avec ce titre portant le même nom que l’EP. C'est un petit virage rétro que prend Myd ici en ressortant des claviers so 90′s du placard. C’est assez jouissif, le tout marche très bien et qu'on se le dise c'est for-Myd-dable.

Actualmente nuestra tragedia es el haber experimentado por tanto tiempo un miedo físico, universal y generalizado que apenas nos es dable soportar. Ahora ya no existen problemas del espíritu y la única pregunta que se plantea es: ¿En qué momento voy a desaparecer? Es por esto que los jóvenes que ahora escriben se hayan olvidado de los problemas del alma humana en conflicto consigo misma, problemas que por sí solos pueden generar la buena literatura, pues sólo de esto es de lo que vale la pena escribir; lo que justifica la zozobra y la extenuación.

El escritor debe ponerse en contacto nuevamente con estos conflictos: darse cuenta por sí mismo de que lo esencial de todas las cosas es experimentar temor; y una vez que haya asimilado esto, borrarlo de su mente para siembre, sin dar cabida a nada en su taller, salvo a las antiguas verdades del corazón, las verdades universales de otros tiempos, que cuando ausentes hacen de cualquier historia algo efímero y vano: el amor y el honor; la piedad y el orgullo; la compasión y el sacrificio. En tanto el autor no proceda de esta manera, trabajará como bajo un anatema; escribirá no acerca del amor, sino de la lujuria, de derrotas en las que nadie pierde nada de valor, de victorias desesperanzadas, y lo peor de todo, sin misericordia y compasión. Sus congojas no se abatirán sobre osamentas universales, ni dejarán cicatrices tras de sí. No será a partir del corazón que él escriba, sino de las glándulas.

En tanto no aprenda de nuevo esto, escribirá como si estuviese perdido entre la multitud, observando el fin del género humano. Y esto es algo que me niego a aceptar: que incluso en el último sangrante y moribundo de los atardeceres –tras resonar el postrero tañido del destino sobre la última y fatua roca, ahí posada y ya sin marea- prevalezca todavía un sonido más: el de su insignificante e infatigable voz, viva aún. Esto es algo que no puedo admitir. Considero que el hombre no sólo habrá de resistir, sino también de prevalecer. Y es inmortal no por ser el único entre los animales que está dotado de una voz inextinguible, sino por el hecho de poseer un alma, un espíritu capaz de compasión, sacrificio y resistencia. Escribir acerca de estas cosas es el deber del poeta, del escritor. Y es su privilegio ayudar al hombre a aguantar, inyectándole ánimos, haciéndole recordar el valor y el honor, la esperanza y el orgullo, la compasión, piedad y sacrificio, que han constituido la gloria de su pasado. La voz del poeta no necesita ser simplemente un testimonio del hombre, bien puede ser uno de sus puntales, de los pilares que le ayuden a subsistir y predominar.

—  William Faulkner
