Crazy Arm “Union City Breath”

Crazy Arm “Union City Breath” (Xtra Mile Records) 2011 
By Rich Cocksedge (SugarBuzz UK)

Crazy Arm return with their second long player, two years after they blazed a trail with their debut, “Born To Ruin”.  Given how good that debut was it was always going to be interesting to see if the new, expanded Crazy Arm (Victoria Butterfield on vocals and Patrick James Pearson on keyboards and violin) could rise to the challenge of emulating their earlier work.

Stacey Blood

Interview by Rock N’ Write

Stacey Blood is counting it off this summer with the anticipated release of his second album Millennium Blues. What to expect? The Morrison-ish, Beatlesque, Cash driven artist captures a mélange of rock, blues, and out-of-the-box style that he skillfully melds together for a sound that is very much his own. A fan of 60’s and 70’s rock, Blood awakens the nostalgic mind and sets the path for a timeless adventure with him.

Interview with Brett Callwood – Author of The Stooges - Head On
By Christopher Duda-Sugarbuzz-Left of the Dial

Everybody’s a little more worldly now, and there’s more exposure to things. When I made Fun House , back in 1970, nobody wanted to interview me. It was wonderful. I was like one of those little white things you find living under rocks, that every once in a while people pull up by mistake and go, “aagh!” But now everybody has a video camera, and that may have changed the nature of “the message from below,” as it were. –Iggy Pop Interview Magazine 1999

“That’s the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.” ― Charles Bukowski
