Quick. Name an actress you think should
play Loretta Lynn in a Broadway musical
version of the country singer’s life story.
Who comes immediately
to mind? Bet it isn’t Zooey
Deschanel. The wide-eyed
cutie who likes to sing standards and show tunes doesn’t
seem like a convincing facsimile of the hard-scrabble
girl from Butcher Holler, but
if all goes according to plan,
Deschanel will portray Lynn
when the musical biography
of the world’s most famous
coal miner’s daughter opens
in NYC.
According to Deschanel,
she had the idea to make
a musical about Lynn, and
she asked her manager to
look into it. Turns out that
Lynn already had the idea
herself, and the show was
in development. The persistent Deschanel pushed to be
cast in the role of Lynn, and
Lynn eventually agreed. She
brought Deschanel onstage
in Nashville last year to make
the announcement.
“I think she can sing her
... self to death,” Lynn said
of Deschanel, the hesitation
in her comment pointing out
the hard-scrabble girl still
living inside the 80-year-old
singer. She clearly wanted to
give a slightly more off-color
description of Deschanel’s
singing. “I didn’t say it,” she
laughed.
That Lynn can still intrigue pixie-ish actresses in 2013 says a
lot about her relevance now, more than
half a century after she recorded her first
song, as does her last album, 2004’s Van
Lear Rose. That album, produced by
modern rock darling Jack White, was
White’s attempt to put Lynn’s music in
a different context. White is enamored
with lo-fi (he famously likes to play guitars made of plastic and cardboard) and he
saw lo-fi as the logical way to go for the music of a girl from the hills. When White did
his own cover of “Coal Miner’s Daughter”
this year, he recorded it directly to vinyl in
a vintage recording booth so that “you can
hear the warm analog fidelity” and plenty of
fuzzy scratchiness.
Let’s not forget, though, that Lynn’s rise
to fame in the 1960s wasn’t about LA-born
starlets on Broadway or mountain folk music performed with self-consciously modest
authenticity. It was about using country-girl
grit to tenaciously pursue commercial success in the world of mainstream country
music. It was fist-swinging, tell-it-like-it-is
honesty, but it was also ruffles and spangles. It was the beginning of a revolution in
country music that has its conclusion more
directly in Miranda Lambert than it does in
Deschanel or White.

Lynn’s story is legendary. She was born
in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky in 1932, and
she married young. Her autobiography,
published in 1976, claimed that she was 13
when she got married, but the discovery of
her birth certificate by the Associated Press
last year proved that she was almost 16 when
she wed Oliver “Doolittle” Lynn. Regardless, she was a grandmother by the time she
was 29, and she was living in Washington
state with Doo.
She began to seriously work on a music career in the beginning of the 1960s, and
she caught the attention of Zero Records cofounder Norm Burley at a talent show in Tacoma hosted by Buck Owens. Zero recorded
Lynn, and she and Doo hit the road, playing
at radio stations to promote her record “I’m
a Honky Tonk Girl.”
When they got to Nashville, Lynn captured some more important attention, this
time from producer Owen
Bradley, who was working
with Kitty Wells and Patsy
Cline, among other hot acts
of the day. Bradley took
Lynn into the studio and began crafting her style; one of
the results, 1962’s “Success,”
was her first Top 10 single.
Lynn’s stardom was
built on down-home delivery,
but her style was anything
but modest. She was pugnacious, and she was eager to
stand up for herself. “Don’t
Come Home a Drinkin’ (with
Lovin’ on Your Mind)” and
“Fist City” explained how
she handled a boozing, cheating husband, and “You Ain’t
Woman Enough To Take My
Man” made it clear what she
would do to keep him. Her
feistiness wasn’t confined
to her personal life; she was
also willing to take on society at large. Her 1975 song
“The Pill” took a liberated
view of birth control, and it
was controversial enough to
be banned by some country radio stations. Lynn had
learned about homey honesty
from Wells, but through the
60s and 70s, she made it her
own.
Lynn was a sensation,
and her fame was big enough
even by 1969 that she could
write “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” a song that mythologized her rise
from Appalachian poverty to superstardom. Dolly Parton echoed the song’s
rural myth-making in “Coat of Many
Colors,” also written in 1969, about her
own childhood in Tennessee. The songs
established the notion that rural cred is
important for a country star, to the point
that these days every singer on the radio has to record at least one romantic song
about his or her dirt-road adolescence.
The golden age of mainstream country that Lynn helped to build, the age when
she and George Jones and Tammy Wynette
could sing about blue-collar concerns on
big stages while wearing so many sequins
and rhinestones that they could blind fans in
the very last row, was a long time ago, but
it still reverberates. It influences Broadway
producers and actresses, and it drives hipster
rockers. More obviously, it inspires every
country singer who defiantly declares her
impatience with unfaithful men and oppressive societal expectations. It’s an impressive
legacy, and one that Lynn can be proud of.

Sowing Seeds of Creativity
By Heather Miller
Thousands of colorful dots wrap the
surface of a unique sculpture, entitled “Sun
Kissed,” that rises above the heads of staff
and students at Homestead High School. Artist and teacher Mike
Schmid quietly inspires
those who come face
to face with his work.
“Sun Kissed,” a gleeful sun icon that spans
9.5 feet, debuted at the
international art competition Artprize held
annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Inspired
by the vibrant energy
of the competition,
Schmid decided to take
on a grand-scale project. Each piece of “Sun
Kissed” was carved
from pine, then sanded
and covered with a
black primer to enhance
the painted gold overlay.
After assembling nearly 20
individual pieces, Schmid
painstakingly stippled the
entire surface of the sculpture with every color imaginable. Schmid spent over
50 hours on the impressive
undertaking that now shines
above the art department
where he works. It is within
these halls that he strives
to accomplish his greatest work: inspiring
young artists to think big and tackle any goal
their active brains may dream of.
Schmid is an artist fueled by the exhilaration of a new idea. He feeds off of the energy of his students and is quick to return
their creative vibes with encouragement and
coaching. Schmid may not remember the
name of his most influential teacher, but he
will never forget her flowing red hair, spiked
heels and leather pants. He has fond memories of Ms. Amazing Teacher and how she
fostered his fascination for all things curious in the art world. She planted a seed in
Schmid’s mind that has grown to take on a
life of its own. In return, Schmid has cultivated a new crop of young, inspired artists.
Schmid started his career teaching in an
elementary school. After spending 27 years
surrounded by tiny hands covered with paint
and glue, Schmid took a giant leap. He dove
headfirst into the world of sprouting facial
hair, date drama and roller-coaster emotions. For the past eight years, Schmid has
been serving the students of Homestead
High School where he has had the pleasure
to work with many of his former elementary
students.
Schmid is about to make another career
change. In just a few weeks, his time with
high school students will end and a new opportunity as a middle school art teacher will
begin. So far his ride on the educational
roller-coaster has been “spectacular,” and I
would guess he has big plans for this next set
of curves.
Schmid says of his teaching career, “I
don’t know what I would do
with out teaching. Kids bring
out the whole energy of life.
I’ve seen kids become incredible people. Working
with them is rewarding as a
teacher, artist and as a person.”
Schmid is an artist who
teaches, yet he says, “Making art is secondary to teaching.” In actuality, Schmid
views the world with an artist’s brain. He
considers his own students as the media he
uses to explore the ideas and artistic concepts that spin and churn inside his head.
He is a perpetual thinker and strives to come
up with new ways to challenge both his students and himself. Schmid recently merged
his own artistic development with his students’ when he presented his class with a
project that challenged them to create paper
pulp casts.
Schmid followed along, creating his
own work in pulp as his students worked
beside him. He has long been inspired by
ethnic cultures and recently began to develop an idea that he has carried in his mind
for years. He created a series of paper pulp
casts depicting an aboriginal Dreamtime
folk tale about cranes and the rise and fall
of the sun. The casts illustrate the story with
an elegantly designed crane that discovers a
koi as it searches for food in the tall grasses
surrounding a swamp. The story continues
with the crane pulling the fish up in its long,
slender beak. As it rises up from the water,
the fish’s scales begin to shine. The crane
stretches its thin neck, preparing to gulp
its lunch, but the koi rises into the sky and
becomes the sun. Schmid hopes to one day
write the text and publish the entire series of
paper sculptures in the form of a children’s
picture book.
Schmid discovered his love of art when
he was a child. He grew up in North Muskegon, Michigan where he and his older sister set up a primitive studio in their basement
using familiar childhood construction materials including blankets,
pillows and rugs. Inside
his blanket-fort, Schmid
remembers creating his
first subtractive sculpture carved from plaster
formed in a cardboard
milk carton. He and
his sister picked and
scraped, creating a stylized blob of plaster that
Schmid still has today.
Schmid went on to
attend Michigan State
University where he
learned to combine
two- and three-dimensional techniques. He
once tried to create a
three-dimensional project that appeared to be
flat, challenging himself to remove all shadows and contrast. The
project was a self-proclaimed failure but he
nonetheless learned a great deal.
Schmid’s no-fear attitude has given him
the strength needed to forge new territory in
the community. He has found opportunities
to bring art to wider circles of participants
by founding two nonprofit organizations.
Schmid came up with the idea to establish
FAME, the Foundation for Art and Music in
Education, when he realized art and music
teachers often led isolated careers. The idea
was to offer educators an opportunity to network and bounce ideas off of one another.
FAME just celebrated its 26th year and
reaches over 10,000 students in northeast
Indiana every year. Schmid was also a key
player in the development of Camp Whatcha
Wanna-Do, a camp that was first established
to bring the arts to young people dealing
with cancer. The camp is currently planning
for its 21st summer session.
Constantly thinking of ways to bring art
to his community and simply brighten the
lives of as many people as he can, Schmid’s
work as an artist often flows off of the canvas. Creative acts, as seemingly simple as
planting thousands of daffodils throughout
his neighborhood, are common for Schmid.
He is a man who not only conceives ideas,
but he is willing to do the work necessary to
pull them off.
He works hard to develop a positive environment wherever he goes, which could be
in a classroom, throughout his community or
within the pages of an inspiring children’s
book. Schmid is a living example of so
many characters in children’s literature who,
along their journey, plant seeds that sprout
into apple trees or lupines, all for the sake of
making the world a better place. In Schmid’s
case, his art and passion are planting seeds in
the minds of our youth. His body of work is
a collection from which we will all benefit.

ONE WEEK LEFT! ENDS MAY 31!
----------------------------Feature • JFX---------------------------
Putting Out for Fans
By Chris Hupe
In 1981, The Kinks loudly proclaimed “Give the
People What They Want.” Thirty years later, JFX are a
band that have taken that credo to heart, with a slightly
modified version.
“We’re music sluts,” said founding member Scott
Blandzinski in a recent interview. That attitude of
playing what the audience wants to hear has taken
JFX to new heights, making waves in the Fort Wayne
music scene as well as regionally throughout Indiana,
Michigan and Ohio.
You might remember JFX from the Fort Wayne
scene during the 90s. The band began in 1994 as Johnny Exciter and gained a rather large, rabid following
but quickly came to the conclusion that “the name
was stupid,” so they changed it to JFX around 1996.
The story behind the name change involves legendary
Rock 104 DJ Sharon Rossi. According to Blandzinski, whenever Rossi would introduce Johnny Exciter
at shows they were working together, she would introduce them as “Johnny F’in Exciter,” except the “F
word” wasn’t censored. The name kind of stuck, but
was changed to JFX for obvious reasons.
JFX released an album in 1998 that received airplay on Rock 104 and gained the band some attention
from record labels.
“The record did really well and we almost got a
record deal out of it,” said Blandzinski, but it never
came to fruition. Even without the promotion a label
could give them, the band garnered enough attention
from the album to get “opening slots for a lot of national acts, including REO Speedwagon, Tesla, Firehouse, Slaughter and Warrant. We played all over nationally for a while.”
But like an exploding star, the success came to an
end quickly when the band broke up around 1999.
“We burned out,” said Blandzinski. “We got tired
of hanging out with each other,” and everyone decided
to pursue other interests.
Blandzinski got into real estate “for about 10 or
11 years,” he said, to secure his future financially. The
itch to play music, however, never quite went away.
Now that he has put in enough time to get his finances
where he wants them to be, he says he can finally go
back to his first love. “Now I can focus on music.”
Blandzinski reformed JFX a few years ago and
the band – now with Jeff Hedrick on drums, Jim Hol-
ley on bass and multi-instrumentalist Scott English,
along with fill-in players Tom Leahy and Ken Daily –
has been playing in bars around town for about a year
now, as well as in clubs out of state.
“We’re taking over where we left off,” said
Blandzinski. At the same time, he concedes, it’s a
fresh start.
During the band’s first inception, JFX focused
primarily on their love of hard rock and heavy metal.
Now the focus is different.
“We’re a party band,” Blandzinski said. “We perform current and classic rock anthems, as well as hits
from the 80s and club dance music. We really like
what we do. We have a show like people have never
seen before, with state-of-the-art technology, and we
use it to our advantage.
“We’re not doing what we did before. The people
who used to follow us don’t come out anymore. We
focus on the 30-and-under crowd now because they’re
the people who come out to the bars and want to have
fun. We’re building a new and larger following and
looking to get into bigger clubs” in the future.
Though the metal has given way to more current
hits and party favorites like The Commodores’ “Brick
House” and Wild Cherry’s “Play That Funky Music,”
the band still manages to work in a White Zombie
cover or two now and then for old times’ sake..
The mix seems to be working. JFX currently have
only three openings for bookings for the rest of the
year. “It’s fun to have a ton of people dancing and
rocking out to your songs” on a nightly basis, he said.
“We know about 70 songs or so now, everything from
the 80s Bon Jovi songs to Journey to hip-hop. Whatever the crowds want to hear, we want to know how to
play it.”
Though covers and party music are the current focus for JFX, the band does work on new material and
plans to release a new album in a year or two.
“We’re working on new stuff right now,” said
Blandzinski. “We’ll put some of the new songs into
the playlist from time to time to see how the crowd
reacts to them. That’s how we know. They’ll tell us
whether they like them or not, and it’s pretty easy to
tell.”
Catch JFX, the self-proclaimed “music sluts,” at
Beamer’s Sports Grill on Friday, May 31 and at Headwaters Park during the Three Rivers Festival July 14.

BETH HART/JOE BONAMASSA
Seesaw
-----------------------------------------Spins- --------------------------------------Bekah Bradley
As a young country/pop singer/
songwriter, Bekah Bradley has a
lot of tradition to draw upon, and
she draws on a good portion of it
throughout her new EP, a seventrack mini album that feels completely in line with contemporary
country while still maintaining a
tether to the past. From the dirt-road comfy-ness of the opening track
to layered songs further down the track list, Bradley lays out a style
that would be at home on today’s country radio yet exhibits little of
the over-commercialized cynicism so prevalent in current Nashville
products.
From the beginning, Bradley leaves no doubt what kind of image
she wants to project. The title of the opening track, “Country Roads,”
will conjure a recollection of John Denver in anyone old enough
to conjure such recollections, and just like Denver’s country roads
did, Bradley’s country roads unfailingly take her home. The homage to country life is practically a requirement of country singers,
but in the macho party that is country music these days affection for
the rural lifestyle is usually overshadowed by bluster about drinkin’,
fightin’ and a belligerent antagonism toward anyone who’s not from
the country. There’s none of that here. Bradley is all about bare feet,
basketball and John Deere tractors.
The innocence stays in place even when she gets serious and
starts to rock a little. On “Country Roads” she’s a crooner with a
twang in the style that was in vogue a decade or two ago – think
Sara Evans, maybe – but on “Press On” and “Fighter” her sound is
fuller, with piano, effects-laden guitars and backing vocals, so that
she comes in line more with the contemporary sound of Sugarland
or Lady Antebellum. “Minutes” is a little different, a plaintive folky
tune reminiscent of Christina Perri’s heartfelt pop.
The songs strive for a simple positivity. “Press On” is holdyour-head-up inspirational, and themes of perseverance, faith and
emotional strength abound. “Mr. Kruse” is a basic ode to a departed
mentor, and even the haunting personal struggle in “Lion” is tempered by the certainty of ultimate triumph. The result is a collection
of songs that feels young, fresh and untainted by disillusionment.

“I’d rather burn out / than fade
away” bellows returned vocalist
Jessie Leach on “The New Awakening,” the third track on Killswitch
Engage’s Disarm the Descent.
It’s curious that he would choose
this particular rock n’ roll cliché to
bellow (it’s most famous from a Neil
Young song and was referenced in Kurt Cobain’s suicide note) since
he seems to have done a little bit of both. Leach, the band’s original vocalist, helped sculpt its sound. Before now he had made only
two appearances on record with the Killswitch Engage: their obscure
eponymous debut (2000) and their critical and commercial breakthrough, the now-seminal Alive or Just Breathing (2002). He abruptly left the band (quitting via an email) soon after that album was
released, citing mental health issues, and in the intervening years he
has continued on in relative obscurity, fronting other bands such as
the Empire Shall Fall.
Leach was soon replaced in Killswitch by vocalist Howard Jones
who operates in a similar vein, though with arguably superior skill.
As a result, Jones is the frontman with whom most fans are familiar,
having been the face of the band for the better part of a decade and
during its most popular, visible period. Jones appeared on three full
Killswitch albums: 2004’s The End of Heartache, 2006’s As Daylight Dies and 2009’s Killswitch Engage.
Rumors began to swirl about Leach returning to the band shortly
after Daylight, however, as Leach and Killswitch guitarist and main
man Adam Dutkiewicz began a collaboration on another project,
Times of Grace. That band released the album The Hymn of a Broken
Man in 2011 and subsequently toured in support of it, fueling rumors
of a change in Killswitch personnel. The rumors were confirmed in
2012 when Killswitch announced Jones’s departure. Leach was hired
after an audition process shortly thereafter. Far from the Machiavel-

Disarm the Descent
Smashing Pumpkins
Siamese Dream (1993)
The second album from Smashing
Pumpkins, released in the last couple
of years of the grunge era, made the
Chicago-based band indie darlings
overnight. But not everybody was on
board with this band making it big.
The perfectionist ways (or ego) of Billy Corgan made them pariahs in the indie music scene, and they were often referred to as the
“grunge-Monkees.”
Nevertheless, this record was huge for almost two years and
the Pumpkins were able to ride the success wave for almost a
decade. While over-produced, it was still a fantastic collection
of songs, and the respectable guitars of James Iha (and bassist
D’arcy Wretzky) allowed them to be a hard rock band with an
alternative rock singer.
Siamese Dream opens with the grungy “Cherub Rock” and
keeps up the pace with “Quiet” before settling into a nice groove
with the familiar “Today.” “Hummer” and “Rocket” are still
plugged in but are at a different tempo, driven more by the bass
and drums. Another one of their ballads is the beautiful “Disarm,”
a track that produced one of the most popular videos ever on
MTV. Side two has some notable tracks on it as well, including
“Mayonaise” (spelled incorrectly of course), “Spaceboy” and the
nine-minute jam titled “Silverf**k.”
Siamese Dream is an excellent album that still sounds pretty
good 20 years later. The band released Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness in 1995, critics and fans both loved it and it appeared
the Pumpkins would flourish as a band. However, in the late
1990s, personal issues as well as the control that Corgan wanted
for the direction of the band led to the departures of all original
members. Only Corgan remains (and occasionally drummer Jimmy Chamberlin). Corgan’s “Pumpkins” are currently in the studio
working on an album due in late 2013. (Dennis Donahue)
lian power play alleged on internet message boards, however, those
involved maintain that Jones left due to finding out he had an undiagnosed case of diabetes as well as a lack of enthusiasm for the
new material they were working on, and Leach was hired after a full
audition process.
So how are Killswitch with Leach a decade after his initial departure? Largely the same, it turns out. The band’s strength has always
come from combining meaty riffs and squalls with alternating harsh
and clean vocals delivering thoughtful lyrics that largely dispense
with hoary metal cliches. In that sense, Descent is largely a similar
affair to every album since Alive or Just Breathing, at least sonically.
The band pulls off a few tracks that leave a definite impact (“The
Hell in Me,” “The New Awakening”) and are convincing enough
to make you believe that Killswitch Engage still mean what they’re
saying. In other words, the record won’t disappoint longtime fans,
and Leach makes an apt return to the fold as their old/new lead vocalist.
Killswitch Engage’s strength may also be their weakness, however. By having such a distinctive and tried and true formula, the worst
that can be said about Disarm the Descent is that it’s predictable; by
this point you know what you’re going to get with Killswitch. While
you can’t blame them for sticking with what works for them, it does
beg the question as to how relevant they are more than a decade into
their career. (Ryan Smith)
Broadheds
Broadheds
Tired of too-clever-by-half,
oblique, winking hipsters invading your ears when you drop the
needle on the vinyl? Here’s an earnest antidote. Elemental and utterly
lacking pretense, Broadheds blend
breakneck punk, ska elements and
an unvarnished indie sensibility to their self-titled debut. This is a
very “live-sounding” album; you can hear the musicians playing in

Rilo Kiley
RKives
I should start by
telling you that I like
every Rilo Kiley record. I also like every
solo album by the
band’s primary vocalist, Jenny Lewis.
I consider Lewis to
be the female rock n’
roller of her time.
If you’re not familiar with these California rockers,
this odds-and-ends collection is not the place to jump
in. I’d suggest kicking off that journey with 2002’s
The Execution of All Things or even 2004’s More Adventurous. The poorly named RKives is essentially the
scraps one of America’s great modern indie bands left
hanging on their hard drives. That said, this is a good
record with several songs that could blend in nicely
with the band’s best moments. There’s some synth-y
stuff, some rock-y stuff, some of that sweet ballad-y
goodness, some twang and even a few scorcher party
tracks. Mostly, though, we have a new set of Lewis
vocals for fans to learn, pick apart and cherish.
While opener “Let Me Back In” is clearly a lost
Rilo classic from the 02-04 era, it’s the sonically delicious and instantly hummable “All the Drugs” that
first grabbed my gut – Lewis howling in all her tomboy-turned-pinup glory, flirting with the mic in her
signature “one of the boys” way. Also, “the drugs have
nothing’ on me,” as simple of a lyric as it is, feels like
the kind of classic quip only Lewis and her happily
hung-over world-view could dream up.
Another highlight is the inclusion of “The Frug,”
the key track from the band’s first release, The Initial
Friend. While that EP hasn’t aged particularly well
in the big shadow of the band’s sturdy four-album
catalog, “The Frug” feels like an essential part of the
Rilo story – the sound of a young band really going
for it. “Bury, Bury, Bury Another,” another standout,
is twang-era Rilo, recorded after Lewis realized the
soaring depths of her howl. Steel guitar and a more
mature writing style accent the band’s late era sound,
and “Bury” is prime stuff, a single worthy track from
the More Adventurous days.
The Blake Sennett-sung songs, few as they are,
drag things down a bit, as does the Too $hort remix
of “Dejalo” and the demo for “Rest of My Life.” (I
should say that I like this demo quite a bit. I just think
it belongs on a different compilation. One where Blake
and Jenny’s always great demos get some serious
spotlight time.) Buried in the record’s lengthy tracklist is a very good 10-song studio record that matches
the quality of Rilo Kiley’s four proper studio records
and could even be strong enough to stand as their third
best release after classics More Adventurous and The
Execution of All Things.
Were they a Fleetwood Mac for the naughts? Nah.
Rilo Kiley were their own beast, a very cool indie rock
band that just happened to feature one of the great living female vocalists. And while I do wish the collection were tighter and better sequenced, I’m mostly just
happy to have RKives on my shelf. (Greg Locke)
No Joy
Wait To Pleasure
No Joy have
dropped an excellent surprise for
us this spring. Wait
To Pleasure is an
immensely dense and
noisy piece of shoegaze wonder to get
lost in while we wait
for the air to warm, the grass to green and the sky
to clear. It’s fronted by two Canadian gals that make
no qualms about their love of making lots and lots of
beautiful noise.
Album opener “E” is a cacophony of pretty vocals
blanketed in distortion and crashing cymbals before
being completely engulfed in fuzzy white noise. It’s
a transcendent moment and a hell of a way to open a
record. From the depths we rise into the slow, hazy
beauty of “Hare Tarot Lies.” It’s a slow burner with
an excellent bass line and a vocal melody that brings
to mind all those great Lush records from those dark,
pre-Clinton days. There’s something quite addictive
and alluring about the vocal interplay of Jasamine
White-Gluz and Laura Lloyd. They’re the sweet
center in the cavernous and explosive songs they create. With so many bands putting on their best Kevin
Shields and Andy Bell impersonations, it’s quite
refreshing to hear these two creating their own special
brand of ear trauma.
“Blue Neck Riviera” goes in a slightly different
direction, with an almost Crystal Castles sound; it’s
more electronic but still dream-like in the sense you
fell asleep at a Cure show and someone slipped headphones on your head with Depeche Mode playing at
high volume. “Lizard Kids” and its fuzzy opening
bass breaks through with a breakneck rhythm and
echoed vocals creating a dizzying, hallucinogenic
track. “Lunar Phobia” sounds like Miki Berenyi fronting Stone Roses. “Wrack Attack” is another great mix
of 4AD aesthetics; pop music ran through the ether.
“Uhy Yuoi Yoi” ends the album on a sorrowful note.
Melancholy, lamenting, perfect.
Wait To Pleasure is something you’ve heard
before. Maybe on a long car ride home in the middle
of the night. Or possibly on your headphones lying in
bed on a lonely Saturday night. But more than likely,
it’s the echoes of a long forgotten dream. That music
you hear somewhere between sleep and consciousness. It’s the difference between sad and melancholy.
Lonely and just alone. No Joy create the grey area of
contemplation. (John Hubner)

SPINS - From Page 6
a room, not painstakingly assembling tracks one by
one. Frontman Peter Walker (late of Eulogies) brings
a potent combination of euphoric energy and angst to
the proceedings. His vocals contain a touch of Julian
Casablancas, a bit of Robert Smith and just enough
punk sneer to keep haters at bay.
The band is fluid yet incredibly tight, which
should be expected considering the lineup: crack session and live bassist Justin Meldal-Johnsen; monster
drummer Denny Weston (The Kooks); and Fitz and
the Tantrums’ James King on saxophone. And, speaking of sax, it’s a huge presence on this disc. Where one
might expect a second embellishing guitar, there’s sax
instead. It adds an interesting element to Broadheds’
sound, and King admirably steers clear of cliché in everything he plays. In fact, the entire band is fantastic.
Whether they’re lying back with a mellow ska groove
(“Pick Me Up”) or galloping to the finish line in Sex
Pistols style (“Speeding Away”), Broadheds are never
anything less than consummate pros. Though their
guitar/bass/drums/sax/vocals configuration rarely varies, their ability to veer among – and mesh – different
styles more than compensates.
I was struggling to put my finger on what made
the slinky rocker “Outta Reach” sound so comfortably familiar. Then I realized this tune would’ve been
a perfect deep cut on a Billy Squier album. And that’s
a good thing. If you’re looking for highfalutin “deep
thoughts” or flavor-of-the-month, indie-style hopping,
you won’t find them here. Broadheds keep it simple,
emotional, and powerful. And simply enjoyable.

Ribfest, Metal and Pharr Benefit
Just the other day I caught a glimpse of a Germanfest billboard alongside the road and was quickly
reminded how fast the festival season is approaching. Not sure about you, but I’m ready to spend some
quality time down at Headwaters; you can guarantee
a wide range of live music will be on tap this summer.
Soon after Germanfest will be Ribfest, Greek Fest,
Three Rivers Festival and plenty of other family fun
gatherings.
Today I was looking over the 16th Annual Ribfest
lineup to see what was in store for this time around,
and one band on the bill that stood out to me was
Eliminator, the ZZ Top tribute band. In case you’re
too young to remember, Eliminator was actually the
title of ZZ Top’s eighth studio album that featured a
ton of hits, including “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” “Got
Me Under Pressure,” “Sharp Dressed Man,” “Legs”
and “TV Dinners.” For an album that sold 10 million
copies, I think it’s the best fit for the name of a tribute
act, don’t you? Not that Tres Hombres, El Loco, or
Recycler are bad names, but Eliminator just rolls off
the tongue I guess. Anyhow, the Chicago-based Eliminator have been covering ZZ Top for 20 years now
with their Rip Van Winkle style beards and rock n’ roll
sing alongs. So if you’re wondering what the secret is
to a band’s longevity, those would be the guys to ask.
Eliminator will be in town Friday, June 14 to perform
at Ribfest, so make a point to scope them out. Sure,
you may have seen ZZ Top when they played the Embassy back in 2007, or perhaps you’re going to catch
them this summer on the road, but this tribute act will
be something to see. Check out www.bbqribfest.com
for the complete rundown of acts to perform.
Legends Sports Bar will find themselves hosting
a night of metal on Sunday, June 2, as national record-
Out and About
NICK BRAUN
ing artist Incite will be strolling through town. These
groove metalists opened for Soulfly the last time they
were in town, and now they’re out on their own headlining tour. The band features Richie Cavalera (vocals) and frontman Max Cavalera and has been going
strong since its formation in 2004 and the release of
its sophomore effort, All Out War, last November. That
fine piece of work was produced by former Machine
Head and Soulfly guitarist Logan Mader. Also on the
bill that evening will be our own Koheleth, Beneath
it All and Double Barrel Blasphemy. The show will
begin at 7 p.m., with tickets $8 in advance and $10 day
of.
A short trip south to Decatur will have you taking
in a day full of live music on Sunday, June 9. Wild
Mountain Berries, Lost Vegas, The Birch Band, For
Play, 11:58 and Edible will join forces for a benefit
for the children of Lexy Pharr. Lexy was just 23 when
she recently lost her life in a traffic accident, leaving
behind two beautiful daughters: Aubree (age 2) and
Braelynn (seven months old). From noon until 8 p.m.
come to the Fraternal Order of Eagles (1039 S. 11th
St.) and enjoy the fine music lineup as well as a hog
roast, auction and raffles. It’s all for a good caus. Organizers are still looking for auction/raffle items if
anyone would like to lend a hand. If you’re willing to
help, call 260-701-1440.

Summer is the time when nostalgia acts
seem to come out of the woodwork for concert tours. And why not? Most people have
more time on their hands during the summer and want to get out of the house while
it’s nice out, so a concert is a good excuse.
What’s not exciting is the recent resurgence of “boy band” tours the last couple of years.
Yeah, I understand the deal. Their audience from the 90s now has jobs and money to shell
out for tickets, so promoters and fans connect on one night to relive childhood memories
at fifty bucks or more a pop, and both parties are happy. It’s not unlike any other tour of
this nature, except that they’re relatively talentless and manufactured boy bands. On the
other hand, I enjoy reliving my formative years through bands that are classified as “hair
metal” (a name I hate and one that doesn’t do the era justice, by the way), so I get it. On
that note, Backstreet Boys announced a summer tour last week that starts August 2 in
Chicago and visits the Toledo Zoo Amphitheatre August 4, Detroit August 8, Cleveland
August 9 and Cincinnati August 10. Jesse McCartney will open. I’m sure it will be a
great time if you’re into that sort of thing.
Road Notez
CHRIS HUPE
While we’re on the nostalgia trail, Dokken, Slaughter, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row
fame and Lita Ford will head out on tour this summer to help aging rockers like me have
some fun before we head to the retirement home. The four acts will visit The Congress
Theater in Chicago August 17 and Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo the next night.
Chicago’s got a lot of great concerts and festivals this summer (like most summers), including Lollapalooza August 2-4 and Pitchfork Music Festival July 19-21. Now comes the
announcement of this year’s Riot Fest, a festival geared toward punk rockers. Headliners
for the annual party are Fall Out Boy and Blink-182, but the lineup also includes a surprise with the announcement of Motorhead’s attendance along with more likely suspects
AFI, Violent Femmes, Rancid, Sublime with Rome and Blondie. The festival also includes carnival rides and games and takes place September 13-15 in Humboldt Park.
Wanna know who the new Stone Temple Pilots singer is? Former singer Scott Weiland
was fired recently (and for good reason judging by his Fort Wayne performance a few
months ago), so the band needed a replacement when they played a surprise gig in Los Angeles last week. The vocalist was none other than Chester Bennington of Linkin Park.
Park is reportedly a huge STP fan and was ecstatic to have helped out for the gig. Is he the
permanent replacement? No one knows for sure, but it was made clear Linkin Park are his
first priority. STP may become his second, though.

Cinema Center Delivers a Month of Noir and Horror
Sneezing is harder than naming 10 good
reasons to be grateful that Fort Wayne Cinema Center has been bringing great movies
to the community for the past 35-plus years.
But this is the time of year when you can see
a bunch of great movies for free, making it
especially easy to count 10 reasons to go to
the theater.
The series runs from May 23 through
June 25 on Tuesday and Thursday nights. All
the films start at 7:30, and all are presented
free to the community. Students have to pay
tuition and write papers, so don’t gloat if you
are just there to have fun. If you come early
and behave yourself, you can sit with the students, as Professor Mike Kauffman sets the
stage for what you are about to see.
The theme of this year’s series is film
noir and horror. Horror films were hot popcorn movies in the early days of filmmaking.
When World II ended and the country was
recovering from some very dark days, horror
morphed into film noir.
Noir, a genre of films full of shadows,
shot in black and white and featuring crime
plots and dark psychological dramas, was
considered a B movie turf. Noir films were
not the films the studios backed with big
bucks, big directors or big actors.
But the films made by the oddballs, newcomers and eccentrics that filled the ranks of
noir created some very original films. The
twisted, unconventional and idiosyncratic
films of noir, always staples of the late night
movie world on screen and on television, received fresh appreciation in the new world
of indie filmmaking.
Once upon a time, both genres – horror
and noir – were declared dead. But those
making this diagnosis have been proved
wrong. Both genres have expanded their
definitions. Noir films don’t come out at the
rate studios used to produce them, but they
are out there. Today horror films come out
with frightening (couldn’t resist) regularity.
Cinema Center’s series is a great survey of
how these two genres have grown up and
traded conventions and clichés.
The series is rife with classics, but please
don’t skip a movie if you’ve never seen it or
you haven’t seen it lately because you think
seeing it on television or on DVD is a substitute for seeing a movie in the theater.
Most of these movies have scenes that
are always cut when presented on television,
except for the odd showing here or there on
a premium channel. And what gets cut out is
the best part. If you don’t see Roman Polanski’s bully character slice Jack Nicholson’s
nose, you don’t really understand how brutal
the bad guys are. And you don’t get the depth
of Faye Dunaway’s controlled nonchalance
when she says, “That’s a nasty cut.”
Some of these movies are extremely
hard to see in full unless you buy them. But
even if you own them and you have a huge
television, you will see more at the theater.
And you’ll see the movies with a gang of the
similarly curious.
The series kicks off with Chinatown,
one of my favorite movies of all time (and
the film with the nose slash). Shot in color
in Southern California, it still manages
to be the epitome of noir. Of its 11 Oscar
nominations, only Robert Towne won (for
Best Original Screenplay), but the other 10
nominations include Best Picture and nominations for director Roman Polanski, Jack
Flix
CATHERINE LEE
Nicholson, Faye Dunaway and every other
major technical award. (Agh, the heartbreak
of being up against Godfather II.)
Here is the rest of the series, mostly just
titles and dates, but each of these films is a
“must see” for anyone who enjoys movies:
Out of the Past, May 28 – One of the
best “man trying to escape his past” movies
ever.
Cat People, May 30 – Made in 1942,
a freaky tale of big cats, the occult and all
things devilish. Those wacky Serbs!
Frankenstein, June 4 – One of those
stories that is so timeless that the novel gets
made for the screen over and over in different guises. This 1931 masterpiece directed
by James Whale sets the standard for horror.
Blood Simple, June 6 – If you haven’t
seen how the Coen brothers (who went on
to win Oscars for Fargo and No Country
for Old Men, made us laugh with O Brother,
Where Art Thou? and Raising Arizona and
created the Dude) began their career, this is
your chance.
Mildred Pierce, June 1 – This is the
story of the ultimate horribly spoiled mean
girl and her mother who could devour Sheryl
Sandberg in a single bite as she leaned in.
Dawn of the Dead, June 13 – I’m not a
zombie fan, but a fine chapter in the never
dead world of the undead.
Reservoir Dogs, June 18 – Quentin gets
his directorial start with a killer cast.
Near Dark, June 20 – More vampires,
but happily directed by a woman, Kathryn
Bigelow, who now has an Oscar for her nonvampirical efforts.
Psycho, June 25 – The weirdest from the
best. Hitchcock puts all the ketchup directors
to shame. We get the knife and the blood and
the horror. We just aren’t bored to sobs by
the endless thunking of implement against
flesh fetishistically shot.
If you’ve been counting, the series is
only nine films. I could fill that tenth spot
of “why to support Cinema Center” with 20
reasons, or sneezes, a mix of films and big
picture cultural currency. Instead, I’ll just
mention two wacky movies nobody else
would have the courage or crazy to show.
All over the country, audiences have
been lining up to drop their jaws at the weird
mix of meticulous and competent attention
to production details, inflated filmmaker
fantasy and bizarre final product that is The
Room. A true challenger for the title of “most
sincere but awful movie ever,” don’t miss
The Room. Friday, June 7 at 9 p.m. This is
cult.
As is the inspired musical Hedwig and
the Angry Inch which will be presented Saturday, July 27 at 11:59 p.m. Hedwig is the
screen adaptation of the wild and weird stage
show written and directed by John Cameron Mitchell. How much fun is Hedwig? It
makes Priscilla, Queen of the Desert seem
ordinary and plain. Music, staging and costumes are all sublime. And Hedwig, he’s a
survivor.
As is Cinema Center in all its glory. Get
yourself to the movies!

Ignoring Children a la Francais
Bébé Day by Day by Pamela Druckerman,
Penguin Press, 2013
Bébé Day by Day is a condensed version of Bringing Up Bébé, the Pamela Druckerman love letter to
French parenting published last year. Druckerman, an
American journalist who lives in Paris with her husband and three children, is very impressed with the
way that the French raise their kids. Her first parenting
book was an explanation of the ways in which French
parents do it better than American parents, supplemented with Druckerman’s own experiences as an
American mother in Paris; this new book strips away
the autobiographical bits and sticks to the parenting
tips. That’s convenient, because it makes it faster and
easier to dismiss Druckerman’s arguments.
Druckerman divides her “100 Keys to French
Parenting” into thematically arranged groupings that address areas of parenting such
as pregnancy, nutrition, sleeping, discipline and parents’ relationships with one
another. The overarching point, though, is
that French parenting differs from American
parenting in one very basic way: American
parents make parenting all about the child,
and French parents make it clear that the child
is not in control of anything. The French way,
Druckerman argues, is better.
Only some of the French parenting philosophy sounds ridiculous, such as the belief that
explaining things rationally to a newborn infant will
reassure her. When you get her home from the hospital, for example, explain to your baby where she’ll
be sleeping and that you’ll be expecting her to sleep
through the night; she’ll get it, the French are sure.
Some of the rest of the advice seems less nuts.
Take food, for example. The French, as Druckerman explains, don’t feed kids “kid food.” Chicken fingers exist in France, she says, but toddlers are much
more likely to be fed pureé de poire et banane (which
is just ground up pears and bananas, but it sounds impressive in French, doesn’t it?). French kids eat their
vegetables like them, and they are more adventurous
eaters overall than American kids are. The French approach to feeding children is pretty much what you’d
expect from a food-obsessed culture, and it’s probably
the aspect of French parenting that will be easiest to
stomach, so to speak, for typical American parents.
More difficult will be the laissez faire attitude toward just about every other aspect of parenting. Proponents of attachment-parenting techniques will be
absolutely horrified at Druckerman’s French-inspired
suggestions. Let infants do a good bit of crying in their
own beds at night, she says, and babies will be able
to sleep through the night by the time they’re three
months old (that’s a good half year sooner than most
American parents can hope to get a full night’s sleep).

On Books
EVAN GILLESPIE
Ignore them as much as possible (“[your baby] doesn’t
want to be constantly watched and spoken to”). Don’t
praise kids very much. Don’t get involved in their disputes. Make them wait. Don’t let them interrupt you.
Don’t play with them at the playground; just “sit on a
bench, watch and recharge.”
The focus of all of it is to remind you that you,
as a parent and an adult, have a life of your own, and
your pursuit of your own needs shouldn’t be
hindered by wasting your resources on dealing
with a needy child. It’s best for the child, really; if you give in to their demands, they’ll
just have more of them, and they’ll continue
to be needy – and that’s no good for anyone.
Above all, you shouldn’t feel guilty about
anything you do or don’t do as a parent.
“French moms understand the temptation
to feel guilty,” Druckerman writes, “but
they don’t want to spoil their precious
free time. Instead of embracing guilt,
they try to push it away.” Well, good for
them.
They need all their precious free time, after all, to
be the best kind of French mom they can be. Druckerman has plenty of tips in that direction, too.
These are the most important things to remember
about pregnancy: don’t eat for two when you’re pregnant, or you’ll just get fat and have trouble losing the
weight after you give birth. Don’t wear ugly maternity clothes. Sushi and unpasteurized cheese probably
won’t hurt your baby, so eat it if you want. After the
baby is born, lose the weight as soon as possible and
start dressing better. Don’t expect your husband to help
around the house; that’s just not what men do, and you
should accept that. (Druckerman famously wrote an
article for Marie Claire about arranging a ménage à
trois as a present for her husband’s 40th birthday; the
magazine pulled the article prior to the publication of
her first parenting book so it wouldn’t be a “distraction.”)
Who knows if Druckerman’s book represents the
reality of French parenting. Druckerman is an Ivy
League-educated professional living among urban
professionals in Paris, and her view of French parenting may be skewed toward the elite end of the social
spectrum. At the very least, one has to wonder how
parenting techniques aimed at keeping kids from
thinking that they’re anything special manages to produce such egocentric adults.

Five Worth Watching
Yeah, I know, I know
– you’ve seen a lot of stuff.
You’ve viewed every film
worth viewing and you
watched every episode of
Seinfeld four times before
you even went to college. Spielberg? Scorsese? Welles? The Coens Brothers? Seen ’em all, right?
And now you’re bored with Downton Abbey or Game of Thrones or
whatever is the best of what’s left,
right? Be that the case – or even be
it not – here are five productions
we recommend checking out.
Peep Show (British TV series,
2003-current): Oh, Peep. My alltime favorite television show. They
tried to produce a U.S. adaptation
of this show (a la The Office) several years ago starring the smaller
guy from The Big Bang Theory,
but it tested poorly. That’s because
this is a very special show that features the most perfect collection of
writers and actors thinkable for the
subject matter.
All that said, if you’re not the
self-aware, introspective, INFJ,
introverted type, then this show
might not make much sense to you.
If you are one of those people, then
it’s very possible that Peep could
become a new obsession. Not currently available on Netflix.
Life is Sweet (feature, 1990):
Director Mike Leigh’s first international success, this oddball summertime film is an oddly cinematic
tragi-comedy about a lower-class
family of eccentrics led by Jim
Broadbent, Stephen Rea, Alison
Steadman, David Thewlis and a
hilarious Timothy Spall. Hilarious
and full of style, Life is Sweet will
satisfy fans of Mike Leigh and Arrested Development alike.
One of the best little-known
films of the 90s. Not currently
available on Netflix but coming
soon via the Criterion Collection.
The Inbetweeners (British TV
series, 2008-10): Forget the ongoing MTV adaptation of this British
teen comedy series from Channel
4. The original series, which lasted
for three very strong seasons and a
movie, is a modern classic. Imagine if Ricky Gervais serialized the
Superbad script for British television and you’ll have a pretty good
idea of what The Inbetweeners is
all about. Teenage boys talking
trash, trying to get laid and collecting awkward moments. Altogether, there are only 18 short episodes
and a tightly scripted film, all currently available for streaming on
Netflix.
Don’s Plum (Feature, 2001):
This storied, 90s-set, art house
talkie was meant to be the senior
thesis project from a then-aspiring
director named R.D. Robb (the
actor who played Schwartz in A
Christmas Story).
ScreenTime
GREG W. LOCKE
In the early- and mid-90s Robb
hung around with the hip Hollywood kids of the era, including
Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Jenny Lewis, the Sisto siblings, Kevin Connolly, the Ribisi
Siblings, Nikki Cox, Amber Benson and several other actors you’d
recognize. He talked them into
starring in his student film which
was never meant to be anything
more than a thesis project. While
working on post-production for
the film, several of the actors saw
their careers take off (Titantic, The
Office, Rilo Kiley, etc.) and, due to
the racy conversations in the film,
didn’t particularly want the movie
to be released in the U.S. And so
the film came out overseas and
played, with much success, at film
festivals around the world. There
were lawsuits and fights over the
film which has slowly earned a
cult following in the decade since
its release.
A wonderful art house movie
that you can find, if you dig really deep, for free on the internet.
Worth the effort, especially if you
like early John Cassavetes. Or Leo,
or Tobey, who are both great here.
Miracle Mile (Feature, 1988):
Auteur Steve De Jarnatt’s 1988
cult classic masterpiece, starring
Anthony “Goose” Edwards and
Mare Winningham, is a real-time
thriller that I imagine the Criterion
Collection releasing someday. It’s
a beautifully crafted film that was
for many years a buzzed-about
Hollywood script.
The film is an oddball love
story set during the 90 or so minutes before the apocalypse finally
hits. I’ll tell you no more about the
plot in case you take my advice
and watch the film. It’s brilliant
and beautiful and an absolute oneof-a-kind piece of cinema. Not
currently available on Netflix, but
widely available on DVD.

‘I have no doubt that in a short time, John Fullbright will be a household
name in American music.” – Jimmy Webb
‘We haven’t been this excited about an emerging talent since Springsteen ... a songwriter whose name could one day be mentioned in the
same breath as Paul Simon, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits.” – whatzup
‘It’s not every day a new artist shows up out of the red Oklahoma dirt
... and earns comparisons to great songwriters like Townes Van Zandt
and Randy Newman, but Fullbright’s music makes sense in such lofty
company.” – FolkAlley.com
