Todd Westover: Flower Power & Vibes

Q&A with Manny Wolfe of Banging Colours, the legendary pioneers of the London Psychedelic Underground

Posted on November 26, 2020 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

"Music has - perhaps most of all arts - the ability to touch you unconsciously. You don't have to understand it, you don't have to analyze it, and yet it penetrates into your inner being."

Banging Colours: Imaginative Brain Music

The year 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. On this occasion, many rare finds from the London…

Posted on November 25, 2020 at 9:30am 0 Comments

"Blues, Soul and Jazz music appeals to a wide variety of people. It can bring people together on a common ground. Although our concerns may be different, music brings us together on a human level."

Q&A with veteran Los Angeles-based Sonny Green, one of the most underrated soul singers alive

Posted on November 24, 2020 at 8:30pm 0 Comments

"I miss the blues entertainers that have passed away. Now it’s a lot of Rap and the music is not the same. My hopes are to complete my heart desires through music, generating wealth a living a successful lifestyle."

Q&A with Canadian guitarist Jack de Keyzer - driven blues around the globe, an artist at his peak powers

Posted on November 23, 2020 at 11:30am 0 Comments

"I miss authenticity, I miss blues with a feeling. There’s way too much importance put on how many guitars you have on stage, and what vintage they are, and how fast you can play and  which fancy venue in which country you toured. It’s just faking it- there’s no real feeling there. Rich people playing and buying their way into the blues - I can’t go for that!  No can do."

Jack de Keyzer: Tribute To…


Q&A with author Michael Schumacher, has written extensively about Allen Ginsberg and the Beat Generation

Posted on November 22, 2020 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

"In terms of racial issues, the Beats were especially fond of blues and jazz—Ginsberg’s last hours were spent listening the blues, when he was in a coma—their writings addressed issues important to the Black and Latino people. The Beats were extremely important to socio-political movements such as sexual and gay liberation, the ecology, and others."

Michael Schumacher: Rebellion…


Q&A with harmonica virtuoso Martin Lang, captures the wailing urgency that makes Chicago blues harp famous worldwide

Posted on November 20, 2020 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

"Well, I hope music can help people form relationships with those others that are as different from them as I am from someone like Taildragger; in my relationship with him, the subject of race is literally a  joke. We know each other well enough to know that we are truly more alike than different, because of the music."

Martin Lang: Old Good Days of Blues Harp…


Q&A with musician/author/songwriter Fred Hostetler, has been a blue spruce in a forest of music sequoias, journeying through blues, folk and the rock era

Posted on November 18, 2020 at 11:00am 0 Comments

"Humility and gratitude immediately come to mind. To have commercial success in an endeavor involving music and the arts is nearly impossible without a bit of luck along the way. You do it because you love it; you must do it, but you'll experience massive amounts of disappointment along the way."

Fred Hostetler: The Lotus of The Blues



Q&A with Canadian trio of Beauwater - unique blend with raw, bluesy, groovy and authentic Blues/Rock

Posted on November 17, 2020 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

"Blues music has traditionally been engrained in hardship and oppression, and can be hard to appreciate for a lot of people for various reasons, while Rock is all about the freedom and is much easier to get people on board with."

Raw, bluesy, groovy and authentic. These are the characteristics behind the unique blend of…


Q&A with The Questionnaires (Steve Hall & Jane Wade) - their music floats around alt folk, alt country and pop.

Posted on November 16, 2020 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

"I really don’t believe that popular music or art in general have had a real political or social impact since the 1950s. Corporations are well aware of what George Orwell called the ‘controlled opposition’. That’s what they do."

The Questionnaires: Timeless Music

The Questionnaires are from Newcastle upon Tyne in Northern England. Jane Wade and…
