Low Cut Connie used to be a band of two primary songwriters: Adam Weiner and Dan Finnemore. Dan is now with Swampmeat Family Band and Adam continues with Low Cut Connie.

Peter Case is a long standing figure in the history of rock’n’roll. He indebted us with bands like The Nerves and The Plimsouls, plus his rich solo recording career and occasional production work.

X lead us into today’s episode of the Little Lighthouse. I finally saw them live in Cleveland after a failed attempt due to the sold out club in New Orleans and it was unforgettable. We also have some new stuff – The Old 97’s are back with a very good album Blame it On Gravity […]
