Squeeze the Day for 10/20

Misfits, Drive-By Truckers, Q102's Bosom Ball and Hans-Joachim Roedelius, plus This Day in Music

Music Tonight: Pioneering German music experimentalist Hans-Joachim Roedelius performs a rare Cincinnati show tonight at The Mockbee (2260 Central Pkwy., just past the Western Hills Viaduct if you're heading towards downtown). Roedelius is legendary in avant garde circles and his adventurous work in Krautrock (with Cluster and Harmonia), Ambient and Electronica has had a hand in shaping the sound of a lot of contemporary music. Suffice to say, certain types of music (from Techno to Dubstep to Indie Rock) would likely sound different if Roedelius were never born. Consequence of Sound recently posted this interview with Roedelius, in which the 76-year-old trailblazer (he turns 77 Wednesday, but says, "Only my body feels the age, not my mind") talks about his upcoming appearance at Moogfest, his more recent work with acoustic music and poetry and collaborating with Brian Eno. Below is a sampling of Roedelius work over the past 40 years. Admission tonight is $10 and showtime is 8 p.m. Xambuca and Nebulagirl open.

Seth Putnam, frontman and founder of easy-listening faves Anal Cunt, died of a heart attack June 11. Oh, wait — Anal Cunt was actually a controversial Grindcore band named after a GG Allin tune, responsible for seconds-long songs like “Your Kid Committed Suicide Because You Suck” and “Van Full of Retards.”

The Greenhornes return after five-year hiatus with their best album yet

0 Comments · Tuesday, October 26, 2010
Five years ago, The Greenhornes were ready for a break. They'd stormed Cincinnati after forming in 1996, and the rhythm section of Patrick Keeler and Jack Lawrence got involved in several projects with The White Stripes' Jack White, eventually leading to the formation of The Raconteurs. Although The Greenhornes seemed inactive, the trio (including Craig Fox) continued to gather to record new songs, and now the band is releasing its first full album of new material in eight years.  

Wanda Jackson and the Lustre Kings

May 14 • Southgate House

If the '50s had been a more enlightened and progressive period in music history, Wanda Jackson's name would be accorded the same reverence as Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley. But because the music industry adhered to the misguided notion that no one would accept a Rockabilly girl playing as hard, loud and fast as the boys, Jackson doesn't enjoy the same vaunted position as her storied male contemporaries.

Compact Rock doc centers on three guitar masters

Director Davis Guggenheim ('An Inconvenient Truth') brings together Rock music legends Jimmy Page and U2's The Edge with The White Stripes' Jack White for an eventful behind-the-scenes look at how these great musicians communicate with each other and create music. Impromptu jam sessions and individual strolls down memory lane reveal the guitarists' childlike passion for their chosen instrument and their sources of inspiration from divergent musical influences. Grade: B-.  

The Dead Weather: Horehound

[Third Man Records]

Q: How many minor supergroups can Jack White assemble? A: All of them, apparently. The Dead Weather is merely the latest installment of "What Will Jack Do Next?," the novelty this time being that the vaunted frontman of The White Stripes and co-frontman of The Raconteurs is taking his place behind the drumkit, the most stereotypically invisible role within most bands except for those timekeepers blessed with outsized personalities (Keith Moon, Ringo Starr, John Bonham).  

The Dead Weather, Drive-By Truckers, David Thomas Owen IV and Robin Trower

The passage of time has been on my mind lately; two good friends have passed through the portal this year and the celebrity body count has been unusually high (and high profile) in recent weeks, proof that no matter how well connected or wealthy or insulated from real life you happen to be, the words of Jim Morrison in 1969 ring true for each and every one of us: "The future"s uncertain and the end is always near." I'm passing time this week with new CDs from The Dead Weather (Jack White's newest side project), Drive-By Truckers, David Thomas Owen IV, Robin Trower and Bleu.
