CANCELLED DUE TO RAIN

Now to the blog post:
Our favorite artists inspire and intrigue us, and what we feel when listening to music or viewing art belongs to us, the audience. One of JDF’s favorite pastimes is exploring how we bring that into our lives, by sharing fan, friend and music connoisseur reviews, collections, art and musings. (Check out this, and this, 
and OMG this.)

Recently we received this collection from Johanna aka RadioGirl Bodde, and we have been challenged:

“Enjoy (trying to figure out what it says…)!! ;-)”

Translate any part of this for us, or date and source an article, and we will send you a Present. By Mail. Who doesn’t love that?

Johanna says “my guess: between 1998 and 2004) Dutch magazines & papers”

I am also including now a few old concert tickets, that I found in my collages (I was bored…). That one in number 5 with the picture, from 013 Tilburg, looks really cool.

 

“Twelve songs from the Dutch radio, 1998 and 2001. Among which Johnny’s first ever appearance in The Netherlands. Recorded on a portable radio / cassette player and converted to MP3s on a laptop with floppy drive. Those were the days! 😉 Before you start to frown: the sound quality is surprisingly good. If you want them: …everything is properly name tagged for copyrights.”

 

“What’s the fun of collecting stuff, if you don’t share it, right? ;-)”

 

We couldn’t agree more, Johanna!

Live @ Grassroots – In the Cabaret Sat. 9pm One Show Only

“Country-soul rejects no useful tool in its arsenal of dark expression – in the house of Johnny Dowd, drum machines and punk guitar tear the place apart, and story puts things back together, even if there are cracks left in the walls from all the ruckus. Find Johnny in the Cabaret Hall on Saturday at 9pm.”

UPDATE FROM JOHNNY’S SITE (www.johnnydowd.com):

The new record is coming along swimmingly. I guess if I were to put it in a genre, it would be Alt Country/Roots Rock/Americana, etc. They’re the kind of tunes I was writing 20 years ago. Mike Edmondson plays some great rock and roll guitar, and the icing on the cake is the return of Kim Sherwood Caso, singing better than ever. Still some work to do, but this may be a breakthrough album. Grammys, here I come.
