ART: CANTON BAD GIRLS Su Nimon of Journey Art Gallery is honored to be one of the finalists in Bad Girl Ventures Cleveland spring competition for business development. Su, a local artist and entrepreneur, has been an active participant in the downtown Canton Arts District since 2007. She has been working hard for the last 15 months with the city of Canton and Arts in Stark to make her new art gallery at the corner of 4th and McKinley NW a reality. In June of 2013, Su plans to open Journey Art Gallery, a higher end art gallery featuring innovative, contemporary work from artists outside our area. Her goal is to create an new art destination in NE Ohio through frequent art openings, events, parties, music, classes and lots of fun. The hope is that traffic pulled into her gallery from our local area and beyond will be a boost to all the businesses in the Canton Arts District. Bad Girl Ventures is an educational and microfinance organization dedicated to inspiring, educating and supporting women entrepreneurs in all the key elements of their business. While women own 50% of all privately held companies, they have access to only 5% of traditional capital. Bad Girl Ventures in Cleveland Ohio is doing its part to change this. The program offers open application online. Twenty semi-finalist competitors are chosen to make a presentation to a panel of experts. Ten finalists are chosen to complete a 9 week program of classes during which they hone their business plans, knowledge and presentation skills. The city of Canton is well represented in this competition. Maria Borgio, local entrepreneur and stand up comedian has also been chosen as a finalist. ###

ART: Canton Museum of Art Opening Major Retrospective Exhibition for Award Winning Artist Joseph O’Sickey Canton, Ohio — Experience a world of vibrant color, where art joins life and love through the eyes of treasured Northeast Ohio artist Joseph O’Sickey. A major new retrospective exhibition, “Unifying Art, Life and Love,” opens May 2 at the Canton Museum of Art (CMA) and will be on view through July 21. This stunning exhibition features expressive canvases and drawings covering seven decades of O’Sickey’s work, offering beauty for all ages and imaginations! The images invite the viewer on a journey to excite the senses — lush gardens, the colorful circus, amazing zoos, thundering horse tracks and more. The Canton Museum of Art exhibition will showcase more than 160 of his works, from oil paintings to watercolors to sketches. “Joseph O’Sickey’s work is simply dynamic and pulls you right in to the subject matter and every detail,” said Canton Museum of Art Executive Director M. J. Albacete. “From large canvases to small sketches, we are allowed into his world. The Museum will be filled with an awesome display of O’Sickey’s life, from the 1940s through today. We are proud to host this dramatic display of artistic achievement, and audiences from Northeast Ohio and beyond should be prepared to be awed. “We are grateful to Joe for sharing his lifelong dedication to his art and the abundant gift of his creativity, which deserves our respect and admiration,” said Albacete. ### ART: STUDIO M TO DISPLAY NEO NOUVEAU PAINTINGS BY CHERI MOHN Neo Nouveau Paintings by Cheri Mohn (1936– 2005) will be exhibited in the Massillon Museum’s Studio M from April 26 through June 16. The public is invited to view the artwork and enjoy refreshments at the exhibition opening on Friday, April 26, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the

Wonderful Downtown Canton

Fred F. Silk Community Room of the Massillon Museum. The artist’s daughter, Deb Altimus, and her family will be on hand to greet guests. The party is free and open to all; no reservations are necessary. Cheri Mohn, a cerebral painter, used acrylic, ink, and construction techniques to create meticulous and balanced works of art. Several of the Neo Nouveau paintings included in the Massillon Museum’s Studio M show were first exhibited at Lynn Kottler Galleries in New York City in 1973. The exhibition may be seen during regular Museum hours, Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Visitors can also see Labor ane New Deal Art (April 13 through June 2), two Civil War displays, the General Jacob Coxey exhibition, and The Immel Circus. ### FILM: STILL STUCK (In Ohio) Still Stuck is the latest feature film from Stuck In Ohio Productions. For 10 years it has been our passion to showcase the best ohio has to offer in action sports, and with this release we hope to showcase, and motivate, countless others to continue their passion within this state, whatever it may be. This film is a self funded project, and is being released solely online for all to view, share, and enjoy. This past decade has been an amazing journey, and want to thank everyone for their love and support along the way. ### MEETING: MASSILLON MUSEUM HISTORY GROUP TALKS ABOUT THE LINCOLN HIGHWAY The Museum’s History Discussion Group will talk about “The Lincoln Highway” when it meets on Tuesday, May 7, from 10:00 a.m. until noon. Chris Craft, the Museum’s special projects coordinator, moderates the discussions. Participants are invited to bring memories, photographs, and objects. They may want to

talk about the many local businesses that took their names from the highway—Lincoln Drugs, the Lincoln Motel, and Lincoln Way Motors for example. Many participants enjoy reminiscing, while others simply enjoy listening. The History Group meets on the first Tuesday of every month from 10:00 a.m. until noon to chat casually about a pre-announced topic, usually a slice of Massillon history. In May the topic will be “Massillon School of Nursing” in commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of its first graduating class. The “Massillon Remembers” group is free and open to everyone; new participants are welcome at any time. Some people come to every session; others attend when the topic is of particular interest.

The hardcover anthology of short

fiction, poetry and artwork features 36 authors and artists from throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Bulgaria, including seven from the Northeast Ohio area. Modern Grimmoire is a literary anthology in the Grimm persuasion. The tales awaiting readers inside Modern Grimmoire feature a talking catgirl and a girl that talks to cats; librarians like you’ve never imagined and royalty like you always have; an ex-court painter, an all too persuasive frog, and an out-of-work wolfman. “Some of these tales twist and twine their happilyever-after predecessors in inventive ways; others craft entirely new magical faces and places. All collected, the anthology is ripe with sticky sweet revenge, altogether timely fates, and allconquering (and conquesting) love,” said Jessica Bennett, executive director and publisher at Indigo Ink Press. “Our goal with Modern Grimmoire was much the same as what the Brothers Grimm set out to do 200 years ago: collect tales from our contemporaries.” The press awarded two prizewinners for Modern Grimmoire. The literary prizewinner Michael Harris Cohen (Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria), received a $1,000 prize for his short story, “The Ex-Court Painter, Goya, and the Princess,” and artistic prizewinner Mandy Altimus Pond (Massillon, Ohio) received a $500 prize for her photograph, “Not Even the Woodsmen Could Save Her,” which appears on the book’s cover. The 248-page book is $18.00 and is available online through Indigo Ink Press, at Amazon.com, and through select retailers. Review copies of the book are available now. Contact Jessica Bennett at (330) 417-7715 or editor@indigoinkpress.org to request a copy. ### ART: AKRON ART PRIZE Downtown Akron Partnership (DAP) is now accepting applications for the second annual Akron Art Prize sponsored by the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation (MCMF). Applications will be accepted through Friday, July 5 at 5 p.m. EST. Competition starts Saturday, September 7 at the Downtown Akron Artwalk. Winners will be announced Saturday, October 5 in the grand lobby of the Akron Art Museum. First place receives $5,000 and the honor of displaying their piece in the Akron Art Museum for the week following the competition. The competition is open to both solo and collaborative artists, as well as two- or threedimensional pieces. Each artist must pay a $25 entry fee and sign an agreement in order to participate. Artists must be at least 18 years of age. Guests age 16 and older with a valid driver’s license may register to vote with their mobile phones or preregister before the event at www. downtownakron.com/artworks. Kiosks will also be available, for those without texting capability. Voting will take place during a limited timeframe and will only be allowed within Downtown, encouraging voters to attend and experience the events. “It’s great that I won last year,” says Ron White, public school teacher and winner of last year’s Art Prize. “And I hope to win again this year, but my goal will be to make a great piece of art so I can get my work to be seen/experienced by a larger audience.” For more information, contact DAP.

The Hoover-Price Planetarium is located inside the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum, 800 McKinley Monument Drive, N.W. in Canton, Ohio ### NEWS: MEET & GEET / MATT BORS / LIFE BEGINS AT INCOPORATION [Canton, Buzzbin 5/7 (Look at BuzzbinShop. com for times)] Are corporations people? Is birth control a sin? Can the president kill you with a drone strike? In this essential collection, Pulitzer Prize Finalist Matt Bors mixes the best cartoons from his prolific body of work with 15 essays to answer the most perplexing questions of our time. From wandering the halls of a churchrun haunted house in Ohio to meeting in Afghanistan with victims of America’s War on Terror to speculating on the secret lives of homophobes, Bors ridicules the people and problems plaguing this fair nation. Never has reading about economics and mass shootings been this enjoyable! Life Begins at Incorporation was funded through Kickstarter in a 2012 campaign that netted $35,000 to pay for printing and production. The book was edited by journalist Sarah Mirk and features a foreword by Sacramento Bee cartoonist Jack Ohman. Available now for pre-orders through mattbors.com, Life Begins at Incorporation will also be available through Amazon, ComiXology and select stores on April 22. Bors will be touring this year in support of the book, including at the Stumptown Comics Fest, Toronto Comics Art Festival (TCAF), Vancouver Comic Arts Festival (VanCAF) and the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE). Just what are people saying about all this??? “Life Begins at Incorporation is equal parts maddening and hilarious. Matt Bors reminds us that in an unjust world, laughter is an absolute necessity. The only disappointment in this book is that despite my wishes to the contrary, ‘The Avenging Uterus’ is not in fact real.” – Jessica Valenti, founder of Feministing.com & author of The Purity Myth “Bors embodies the highest virtues of political cartoonists: fearless, provocative satire and cutting, acerbic insights. He’s also unfailingly funny.” – Glenn Greenwald, columnist for The Guardian “Able to eviscerate a target with a single panel. You never want to end up on the wrong side of his pen and ink!” – Markos Moulitsas, Publisher, Daily Kos “Bors has the right stuff and then some.” – Christopher Hitchens, author of God Is Not Great “A bunch of cunty liberal garbage.” – Person on the Internet ###

NEWS: HISTORIC FOURTH STREET WALKING TOUR Local historian Margy Vogt will lead the season’s first public walking tour of Massillon’s historic Fourth Street on Saturday, May 11, at 2:00 p.m. The leisurely stroll, which includes historic and architectural highlights of the town’s grandest old neighborhood, takes about two hours. Houses on Fourth Street, which span a century of architectural excellence (1830s to 1930s), were home to Massillon’s entrepreneurs and bankers, to prominent families who hosted Presidents McKinley and Garfield, and to humanitarians who harbored fugitive slaves. The tour is open to everyone and reservations are not necessary. The $5 fee may be paid at the beginning of the tour, which begins at the corner of Fourth Street and North Avenue, N.E. (in front of Five Oaks). In case of rain, the walk will be cancelled. Additional Fourth Street tours have been scheduled for Saturday, June 8, (in collaboration with a Five Oaks tour), and Sunday, September 15. Vogt also offers tours of historic downtown Massillon and Massillon Cemetery. For a complete schedule of 2013 walking tours, visit margyvogt. com. Private tours can be scheduled for groups of fifteen or more. Copies of Vogt’s books, Fourth Street: A Century of History and Design and Massillon: Reflections of a Community, will be available at the end of the walk. ###

“a killers dream”

late night lover

by mike nasvadi

ashes to ashes rachel brooke

[PREFACE] RACHEL BROOKE – THE QUEEN OF UNDERGROUND COUNTRY Rachel Brooke is a one of the few musicians who has managed to reproduce the dark sounds of old American Southern Music. She gets her inspiration from early country songs and the era during which the world saw the rise of Blues. Her music reflects the seriousness of the jazz bands and the frivolity of the old cartoon characters. She has accomplished the hard task of taking all these moods and making them into one, her own. Her music is very refreshing and has an edge that reminds the listener of their distant past and history. She is an embodiment of the American south music. As a person she is quite the paradox, while her music is bold and loud like the old westerns, she is a soft spoken introvert. She lives in the seclusion of the wilds in Northern Michigan. Brooke’s parents were a part of a bluegrass band and perhaps this early influence to American roots music makes Rachel Brooks the singer and songwriter she is today. Rachel has experimented with other genre of music as well, she even crooned in an all girl punk band during her teenage years. Her unique voice and songs have earned her a place of honor at the Muddy Roots Festival, which is an exclusive music festival focused in part on primarily showcasing the who’s who in roots music. Her new album called A Killer’s Dream was released on the 4th December 2012. After

Fly Paper

listening to this album, the tastemaker blog: Saving Country Music has titled her the ‘Queen of Underground Music’. The songs in the album are polished and very cohesive. Keeping in tandem with her musical style, the album was recorded on analog tapes and only while mastering was a computer used. “Fox in a Hen House” is perhaps her meanest song and we don’t mean it in a bad way; her vocals in the song can be compared to the best tunes from Bessie Smith. “A Killer’s Dream” has tune that will give Wanda Jackson a run for her money. Rachel Brooke’s music is almost a paradox.

[CANTON FLY PAPER! INTERVIEW] So for anyone that may not be familiar with Rachel Brooke, tell us a little bit about who you are, what you do, and what made you want to do this? Well I guess who I am is dependent on a lot of different things, and a lot of different people. But to make things simple, I am a musician

and performer from Northern Michigan. I play a country-blues-americana sort of thing, and travel around playing it for small and large groups of people! I have been writing and performing for a long time, and I guess my life was destined to be a musical one.

What was the worst job you’ve ever had? The worst job I had was all of them. I worked at a pizza place that I absolutely hated, worked at a bank and that was soul-crushing, worked at a law office and was made to feel inadequate, and worked as an elf at christmas time and pretended to like children. I quit them all. They were all horrible. Are there any early bands the music nerds might want to check out? I played drums in a band called Crime Disease when I was a teenager. Also played in a band called The Exit Room with a bunch of friends. Also I drummed for another band called The Clots a few years ago. There might be

recordings out there somewhere. Also, I played in a band called Junk, or Rachel and Junk which is now “Modern Mal” Give us the details (release date, recording place, idea behind the album) on your new album “A Killer’s Dream” I recorded it at HaloHorn Productions Studio in Traverse City Michigan. We did a few sessions, all done live to 2” tape. Viva le Vox recorded on six songs of the record, and I also had Nick Carnes, Bill Chase, Lonesome Wyatt (Those Poor Bastards), Dave Tatrow, and other local musicians come in and record too. It was a lot of fun. A Killer’s Dream was released on December 4th 2012 on Vinyl, CD, Cassette, and Digital. By listening to the previous albums it seems like between 2008 to 2011 your musical style evolved into what you are today. In my opinion it went from “singer/songwriter with a twang” to “the country stylings of Rachel Brooke.” I mean, now it is an sound put out by you and you alone. It is yours, you own it, and own it well. What happened in that time that influenced the evolution? I don’t really know if I can say what happens to make my music change. As my life goes on I see things differently, make new friendships, and cut out people that cause problems. I meet people, move around, listen to different music, and all of these things influence me, and my songwriting, and also the lack of them. My life changes all the time, so that has an impact on my writing, and sometimes aliens abduct me in the night and put ideas into my head. It’s all a natural progression of human life, and discontent. Seems like “A Killer’s Dream” really encapsulates what I imagine you’d want to be known for. In fact, I love the album. Do you love it? Is there anything you’d change? Right now I like it. Tomorrow I wont. Two weeks from now I will love it, and a month from now I might not. It changes all the time. One thing I am certain of is that the songs are

The once anti-Nashville based Joe Buck gained notoriety as the guitarist of The Legendary Shack Shakers. As Hank III’s villainous sideman onstage, the snarling upright bass player became infamously recognizable. Joe Buck Yourself is now a bona fide evil motherfucking, one man band. This unique blend of hellbilly punk rock ain’t your grandma’s hillbilly music. Joe Buck yourself, great, the production is great, the people who motherfuckers! played on it are great. It’s just I’m critical of myself and that’s that. I’m never really satisfied Based on the resumes of vocalist Sean Wheeler with what I do. But I do think this album (Throw Rag) and multi-instrumentalist Zander stands alone, and stands above a lot of others. Schloss (Circle Jerks, the Weirdos, Joe I’m just not done yet. Strummer), you’d expect a rambunctious sound Are there any songs you left off that might sneak out on a 7 inch some time? Actually, no. All those songs were made for that album, and they were complete together. But I do have plans for a 7 inch soon. I am really excited about it, too. I had an idea out of no where (maybe the aliens) and it hit me hard, like I HAVE to do this, so there will be a 7 inch in the future. For me, the epitome of “making it big” would be to have a Canton Fly Paper! article written about me or a Wikipedia page, what is your epitome? It’s hard to say. A Wikipedia page is easy to get. A lot of people write them about themselves which is so stupid. (Don’t do that, Mike) But I guess my “making it big” would be playing in a space station on the moon with Fats Domino. One day IT WILL happen. You’re young, you’re making people take notice of you, where would you like to end up? I don’t know really know. I’m just letting things happen right now, and seeing where it takes me. I just like to play music. If the universe is on my side then good things should happen.

emanating from the Legendary Duo, but you’d be wrong. The twosome plays a hybrid of folk, country, pop, ragtime, bluegrass and gospel that includes all the frenzied energy and spirit of the duo’s aforementioned bands, but is executed with a soulful dash of Americana charm not often heard west of the Mississippi.

Like so many of us, Rachel Brooke was born in the wrong time. Her classic style, and her simple and poetic songs fit much more snugly in an oval picture frame of tarnished metal and smoky glass than on CMT or Clear Channel pop country. Her songs have that capacity to take you somewhere you haven’t been for many many years, or to take you somewhere you want to be: in the depths of drunkenness and depression, or back home where all was right. The songs are not meant for this modern world or the people who dwell in it. They are meant for YOU...the wayward soul rambling down the Lost Highway. As Joe Buck recently recorded and produced Viva Le Vox’s upcoming release Dirt for Sale, this will be Joe Buck’s first appearance as a bass player since Hank III.

Viva Le Vox has always been a band with a rotating circus of characters, from two members Who are some of your favorite underground to five, four, and three. Though some bands?

SHOW: SHALLOW WAKE Shallow Wake from Canton is an original band that plays no-gimmick straightup hard rock. Shallow Wake delivers a performance which is both thought provoking and fist pumping. All original, their songs are crafted with lyrics packed with emotion and hard-won experience. “Saying sorry just ain’t my kind of lie,” can be heard on the rousing chorus of My Kind of Lie. “Long lost...looking back at the sunrise of my darkest days,” laments Long Gone. Their rich sound, thumping bass, and awesome solo riffs create the ideal rock experience. Shallow Wake can be found playing in the community and is always up for exploring new venues and crowds. 2012 saw them headline a benefit for the Carrollton County Animal Rescue as well as rock a packed audience at Canton’s music hotspot, Buzzbin Shop. A Canton-based band, Shallow Wake has been on the scene for many years. Their time together has honed

SET THE DIAL TO YOUR DOOM BLACK TUSK “SET THE DIAL” FFO Red Fang, Yet to Define, High on fire [Canton, Buzzbin 5/16] I caught our now beloved Black Tusk (along with Red Fang) a few months back at the Beachland Ballroom with a few buddies. What started out as a simple up-to-Cleveland-and-back-trip turned out to be a ten hour boozing venture that lead us right to the border of West Virginia. I digress. The last thing I remember hearing before I woke up safely in bed was “Black Tusk was so fucking brutal...we need food, we need to stop, I’m going to puke, man.” One thing you need to listen to Black Tusk’s fourth album Set the Dial is strength as this album is loud and brutal. The opening instrumental “Brewing the  listen now: black tusk Storm” sets the tone for the rest of the album and does exactly what the title says...brews this shitstorm of fury your about to be in for. The 34 minute long album quickly sweeps through ten songs, each less than five minutes with a frantic energy and no-holds barred bloodthirsty riffs. There is no time to get bored with Black Tusk, who look like they just tumbled out of bed, smoked a J, and jumped on the road. In Set The Dial (out on Relapse Records) they throw themselves into every minute of the recording with ball-punching gusto and ferocious thumping rhythms that get you in their grip from start to finish - so much so that you feel exhausted at the end of it. What makes Black Tusk unique is they have no lead singer. All three members of the band, Jamie, Jonathan and guitarist Andrew Fidler all sing with a different level of gravelly gusto. This is the breakout album of the four and one of the top 10 played on the Buzzbin Shop jukebox. So, people dig it. The album has an accompanying video which symbolizes Black Tusk’s devil-maycare approach to music as it soon becomes apparent it has been shot in true DIY fashion. You will need to rest your ear-drums after listening to Set The Dial which is a mixture of metal, sludge, hardcore and punk rock but you will be caught up in the frenzy from the moment you begin to listen. Coming soon we’ll have a new EP by the fellas. So what about the new EP? Comments drummer James May: “This new release is a mean one. It reminds me of a new twist on an old days BLACK TUSK sound. We got back together with Jay and Phillip Cope to turn this out with some of that earlier, brutal sound you might have heard back in the beginning albums. We figured it was about time to see what the old gang could do years later.” -Mike Nasvadi

REVIEW: STRIKING A CHORD - GELATINUS CUBE [Canton, Buzzbin, May 4th] Gelatinus Cube is very much like its name something which refuses to conform, sorta. They claim that they don’t have any particular genre which they belong to. I agree. Their music is fun and each track dips into many genres but over all is just weird. Think Alex Harvey weird and you’ll be on the right path. We haven’t really figured out what is about yet but it sounds like something from the Rocky Horror Picture Show, if the entire show was on acid. The bands’ origin goes back to when the members, Tim Swanson and Pat Chase were boy scouts. Their friend at the time was in a ska band and this inspired Tim and Pat to start a band as well which later came to be known as the Gelatinus Cube. In days following their decision to make a band, the two boys wrote many songs. Their first song was called “Gelatinus Cube”. They lost the song though. As kids then, they decided to record the song on their computer and 20 seconds into the song were interrupted by the loud yelling of Pat’s brother informing him that his mother was home. The word Gelatinus Cube also appears in the movie Wayne’s world which the guyss are avid fans of. Swanson says that the band has seen many musicians that played different instruments over the past years. As of now the band’s line up has Chase and Swanson as singers, Saxophonist Sean Castanien, and last in the line up is drummer Mike Daull. Each member of the band brings in his own style contribution to their non-compliance to any particular genre. Their list of songs feature styles that range from punk rock to experimental concept rock. In the last eight years, the group has released four demos, four studio albums and two live CDs. The band has done many live shows and a lot of them mainly in New York. Swanson claims that the group is not particularly interested in making money; they say their goal is to get their message out.

their talented playing and musicality. The band put our their CD, “Brain Case” in 2010 and is working on their next release. •Saturday, May 11, 2013 9PM Performing with Demise and Social 66 Chucks Steakhouse Akron, Ohio ### TOUR STOP: VIET NAM, CANTON 5/17 @ Buzzbin Shop downtown Canton Tiny Victories is an album for the underdog. It is about the long slow burn, chipping away at the mission at hand whether it takes minutes, days, hours or years. DIGITAL or CD. Tiny Victories was recorded in Saigon, Vietnam. The studio was located in the heart of a densely populated Vietnamese neighborhood next to a meat market. http://brettnewskiandthecorruption. bandcamp.com ### DVD REVIEW “I’M NOW – THE STORY OF MUDHONEY” When we talk of grunge music, everyone seems to think that Nirvana is the legend and that it started with their song ‘Smells like Teen Spirit’ back in 1991. What we do not know is that this genre actually originated from Mudhoney’s Touch Me I’m Sick in 1988. I’m Now tells you the story of Mudhoney and how grunge music came into being. This 102 minute documentary is a fusion of the old and new footage and interviews of the band. The documentary has been directed by Ryan Short and Adam Pease. I’m Now tells you the story of Mudhoney behind the curtains. It takes you through their early days when they were called the Green River. They broke up in 1987 to form the famous Pearl Jam with Gossard and Jeff Ament. The other two band members, Mark Arm and Steve Turner formed Mudhoney with the intention and desire to remain punk. With no plans to make any serious money or produce anything more than a single record, this documentary deeply reflects the humorous, energetic and the warm side of Mudhoney. The documentary also has a touch of intellect that not only characterizes Mudhoney, but the entire Seattle scene. Cheesy B grade movie clips have also been fused in the documentary to match the band’s ironic theme. Sub Pop records, a small startup then, had signed in Mudhoney and later on, they signed in Nirvana, TAD and other grunge and hip musicians. Soon, Mudhoney became a favorite among the British fans and rose to populairty. The film has managed to very successfully reflect the best part about Seattle’s music industry. No economic or social difference could stop the musicians from getting together and to put together some great music. Mudhoney is definitely a story of friendship and survival that deserves to be retold in every way possible. The story is fresh, impeccant, unadulterated with tragedies and feuds unlike most other rock or celebrity documentaries. The film winds up with a middle-aged Mudhoney that still exists as a passion and hobby. The band members are carrying on with their lives and they have been able to stay friends without compromising their identity. Submitted by Karen K. ###

Thus, the label saw it fit to repress the vinyl edition again, just in time for the one year anniversary. Additionally, the label has committed the album to cassette! The Southern Lord version of Dopesmoker features brand new artwork by longtime SLEEP artist, Arik Roper, who created something specifically special for the album’s rebirth. The biggest difference between this new version and the old releases is the phenomenal remastering job by Brad Boatright. His vision was to enhance the original recording without changing it drastically. What he has done makes this epic opus sound invigorated, more powerful with renewed clarity and unbelievably mammoth. His work was enthusiastically approved by the band and considering how focused, vigilant and protective of their masterpiece the band is, that is nothing short of a miracle. ###

music news (cont.) NEWS: BANDCAMP.COM REDUX Today we’re launching a brand new home page that’s focused on promoting all the incredible music on Bandcamp. The centerpiece is the Bandcamp Weekly show, hosted by Andrew Jervis. Andrew joins us from the renowned Ubiquity Records, where he headed up A&R for 14 years, and the Friday Night Session, which he hosted and produced at KUSF for the past 17. Every Tuesday he’ll bring you an hour’s worth of the best tunes on Bandcamp – exclusives, previews, recent faves, classics, and obscurities from around the world. We’re not only excited about the music Andrew will be playing, but also by the way we’re presenting it. Unlike my car stereo, which coyly revealed that I heard MACKLEM this morning, the weekly show displays the current track’s cover art, album name, related merch, artist name, bio image and location, and of course lets you buy or wishlist all the music on the spot. Each week we also highlight a gorgeous illustration of a featured artist, starting this week with Helado Negro, rendered by the talented Oliver Barrett. We’ve got a batch of our favorite illustrators lined up and can’t wait to share their work with you. Continuing with the editorial focus, you’ll see that we now have a regular feature (Andrew interviews R&B beat-making supremo Shlohmo this first week), a steady stream of all that is new & notable, and curated Bandcamp collections by special guests (courtesy of Bandcamp for Fans, and kicked off by eccentric Seattle MCs THEESatisfaction and Portland’s heavyrocking Red Fang). We’ve also moved Discover front-and-center and added wishlisting, staff picks, and the ability to slice by daily sales. Discover has driven more than 30,000 record sales in its previously somewhat obscure location, so it was high time we gave it front page placement. ### NEWS: SPECIAL ORDER: HAVE YOU BEEN DRINKING? The Tosspints whom recently routed through Canton via Buzzbin and East Grand Records are proud to announce they will begin promotion of the pre-sale for their new album “Have You Been Drinking?”. The album which will be their 3rd full length studio release since 2009 is scheduled to hit sales outlets in June, and will include 12 tracks including 10 all new original Tosspints songs and two traditional Irish songs re-tooled to fit their hard driving style. In addition to the album, as an incentive, they will be offering as exclusive content a free download of their own rendition of “Boys of County Hell” (The Pogues) available on a limited basis and not included after the pre-sale closes on May 24th. Those who do participate in the presale will also receive their album 1-2 weeks prior to the official release date, and special pricing on bundles of CD, LP and limited edition t-shirt. ### REVIEW:

we all screwed...

Hello my friend, you are now the accused. If you are using Internet Service Providers like AT&T, Comcast, Verizon, Cablevision or Time Warner, then you should seriously think again before downloading or sharing music, films or TV show files online illegally. They’re not having it anymore. By illegally, it would mean that you are either sharing the file without the consent of the owner of the file or you could be violating the copyright law in some way, as stated by the US government. And now the real son of a bitch is going to rear its ugly head. According to Billboard, a new anti-piracy program is going to be introduced into the internet market very soon. This program can track your activities that involve file sharing and accessing online content. If you commit an error that involves copyright infringement on any of the above mentioned ISPs, this new technology will be able to track it down in real time. The information is sourced from a blog post by the Center for Copyright Information. Moviemakers, artists and just anybody who owns content on the internet can access public peer-2-peer (P2P) networks, torrents, file sharing boxes, once the program is activated. Owners of the content can access these places to check if any of their files, be it movies, music or TV shows, are all available for free access on the internet an are being shared without permission, against the US copyright law. If they find any sort of illegal sharing of file being traced from your IP address, then your ISP will be notified. You will receive a “Copyright Alert” from your service provider. This alert will inform you that you have been accessing content illegally. You will also be advised on the legal ways to share or access online content. That doesn’t sound so bad right? Now, a new part of the program insists you are scolded and sent to the corner...of the internet. A virtual timeout will be bestowed upon you in the form of a download speed restriction as well as a redirection to a designated landing page for abusers. Don’t ignore and consider it as such a light issue. The first warning that your service provider gives you might just be a way to educate you of ethics to be followed on the internet. Your infringement might not let you lose your internet connection, get fined or face criminal charges. But the severity of your penalty will increase with the increasing number of warnings that you receive from them. The good news is you can only resolve this issue after contacting your ISP or by completing an education training program on online copyright issues. Imagine an in house con-college for internet pirates. No word on how long these training sessions are. We’d guess a series of videos where the fast forward doesn’t work, like those pesky ads on Youtube videos. The decision will totally be in your provider’s hand and the leniency or gravity of consequences will vary as per the provider. Yeah, and if you have ever had to call your ISP customer service for that clunky modem reset I’ll bet you can’t wait to try explaning this one. THE TOSSPINTS “HAVE YOU BEEN DRINKING?” Michigan-based The Tosspints probably wouldn’t mind being called a pub band. Their booze-soaked newest album “Have You Been Drinking?” carries such a bar room vibe that you can practically smell the sloshed beer and feel your gums where your front teeth got knocked out. The guys follow The Dropkick Muphys’ template of mixing manic punk, Irish trad music and a whole ton of whiskey. There are two old Irish songs amongst the original: an attempt to out-Pogue The Pogues on “The Boys From County Hell”, and a pretty crazy assault on traditional numbers like “Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye” and “Come Out Ye Black and Tans”. These give you a good impression what these guys are like live, which is a slobbering drunken mess...in perfect tune.

Wonderful Downtown Canton

The original music shows that there’s a lot more to The Tosspints than getting drunk and screaming rebel songs. “Blood Or Whiskey” is a really old school punk number that owes a lot to songs by The Clash like “Death Or Glory”. The standout track is “Our Last Breath”, a nicely complex tune that rocks while having a rich seam of heartbreak running through it. Don Zuzula’s ability to turn on a dime and switch from shouting to an impassioned whisper is reminiscent of Robert Plant’s vocal, and that is never, ever a bad thing. Most Irish people will be happy to tell you that they’re the most manic depressive race on earth. They love to drink, they love to party, and yeah, sometimes they like to fight. But there’s always a kind of heartbreak and melancholy behind all that. Have You Been Drinking? does a neat job of taking that complex national character and turning it into a record.

mission bay brewery makes waves in ohio

by Aaron Fowler

Hands down one of the craft beer meccas stateside, San Diego is home of such microbrew staples as Stone Brewing Co, Ballast Point, AleSmith, and, more recently, Mission Brewery. While you more than likely have heard of the majority of these breweries, Mission Brewery is probably the one that has snuck on by you. Mission Brewery was established in 1913, but sadly closed down during Prohibition and many thought it would be lost forever. As luck would have it for the short-lived brewery, its namesake was revived in 2007 when it was finally reopened. Located in an old Wonder Bread bakery building, Mission Brewery now brews award-winning beers. Mission is one of the latest breweries to hit Ohio distribution with a handful of beers popping up throughout town in the last few months. Here are a few of their more popular selections. Come down to the Buzzbin shop and some of the other local craft beer establishments around town to grab a pint today.

Mission IPA (6.8% ABV) The brewery’s India Pale Ale is a hop-filled easy drinker made from Cascade and Centennial hops. The beer was a 2007 Bronze Medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival and may remind you of some of the tastier IPAs from the west coast. With just the right amount of bitterness and hop aroma, this India Pale Ale should make it onto your go-to beer list.

Shipwrecked Double IPA (9.25% ABV) The use of Cascade, CTZ(Columbus, Tomahawk and Zeus), and Centennial hops craft this cornucopia of bitterness into a hop head’s wet dream. Mission pulls a fast one on beer drinkers with this one, which tastes more like an east coast India Pale Ale thanks to its strong malt presence, not unlike Dogfish Head’s 90 Minute IPA.

Mission Blonde (5% ABV) This Kolsch-Style Ale has the nice mellow bitterness that you would expect from the popular style. A hint of fruit flavors is present as well as aromas of lemon and honey. If you are looking for something light, this may be right up your alley.

Mission Hefeweizen (5% ABV) Their award winning Bavarian-Style Hefeweizen makes for perfect warm weather drinking. This German wheat beer goes well with a long day of lawn work or a busy weekday evening when you deserve a few beers to end your exhausting day.

Mission Amber Ale (5% ABV) This amber ale is a nice balance between their Blonde and India Pale Ale. The beer’s lageresque character with hints of caramel and loads of malts makes this brew a generously sessionable offering from the Downtown San Diego brewery.

Dark Seas Russian Imperial Stout (10% ABV) Arguably their best offering, Mission’s Russian Imperial Stout is a blessing of explosive goodness. Like any excellent imperial stout, Dark Seas contains aggressive chocolate aromas combined with essences of coffee and dark fruit. The brew is one not to miss if you are a fan of well-crafted and perfectly executed

BEERS YOU JUST GOTTA TRY!

Stone “Enjoy By IPA”

We specifically brewed it NOT to last. We’ve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that you’re getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isn’t randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, we’ve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

Atwater “Grand Circus IPA”

One of our newest beers, it is very unique. It’s light alcohol content makes it very drinkable, but the hops pack a wallop. Brewed with four different malt, plus Herkules, Magnum, Centennial, and Cascade, and more Herkules go into this one.

Rogue “Maple Bacon Ale”

13 Ingredients: Briess Cherrywood Smoked Malt, Weyermann Beechwood Smoked Malt, House-smoked Hickory Malt, Great Western 2 Row, Munich, C15, C75 Malts; Applewood-Smoked Bacon, Pure Maple Flavoring, Rogue Micro Hopyard Revolution & Independent Hops, Free Range Coastal Water & Pacman Yeast

brogan’s brews

by shawn brogan

This crossroads, juke joint brew was the last of the Oskar Blues beers I had left to try. It seems that only a few brews from Oskar are available in Ohio year-round. Ten Fidy, Dale’s Pale, Yella Pils, G’Knight Imperial Red and this one Deviant Dale’s IPA. So far I have enjoyed all of the deliciously canned brews from Oskar and am excited to try this one. This was also Oskar’s first tallboy can and probably not my last. I poured this 16oz. tallboy into a chilled pint glass. It looks very rich and dark yet a clear copper-amber. Rocky persistent head, quite thick upon initial pouring and flowing the whole way down through the beer. Lots of lacing all over the place. Great looking beer. I breathe in that all that hoppy goodness. Also smells of strong citrus, orange peel and grapefruit. Slight, sweet smell of caramel, indicating a good malt presence. Swirl it round a few times then sip. Resinous, grapefruit, mangos, slight pine throughout. There is a malt sweetness under it all, but hard to pull out what specific malt it is under all those hops. What malt there is does a fine job balancing against the hops. Bitter finish, with some lingering malt but not too long. Nicely thick, smooth, but quite sticky on the teeth. Just the right carbonation to counter those hop oils - they stick on the teeth, but they’re not there all night. Quite delicious - very impressive and very hoppy, but not so bitter that it smacks you around and leaves you wanting to stop at one. Another fine canned Oskar craft brew. I really want another but at 8% ABV seems wise to enjoy slowly, and yet, it wouldn’t take too much arm twisting for me to open another . So very drinkable. A great American IPA.

That Which Gets Left Behind

by Matthew Sedmock

The appearance of beer in a glass is a beautiful thing. True beer-gurus behind the bar routinely hoist a freshly-poured pint and point it towards a light or to the windows. Staring. Admiring. I mean, c’mon....it doesn’t get much better than watching the gorgeous burgundy hues of a Wee Heavy Scotch Ale delightfully dance in front of your retina! But what about a glass that’s just been emptied? That wonderfully symmetrical ‘ring-pattern’ inside a freshly-quaffed beer is something we call “lacing”. As each delicious gulp is enjoyed, the contents in the glass, of course, descend. What gets left behind is a kind of pattern, similar to lace. This ‘lacing’ clings to the interior wall of the glass, generating a common mosaic. Now, strictly from an artistic perspective, your retina may enjoy this show just as much as it did when the glass was first filled-up! But there’s an added encore performance to this show that’s even more important than the main act: it means your glass is clean! Here’s a couple of questions for you: ever been to a bar and noticed that your beer doesn’t have much head-retention? Chances are your glass isn’t entirely clean. Ever notice bubbles on the inside, near the bottom of the head, that don’t seem to go away as you drink? Your glass isn’t clean. No discernible lacing on the pint-glass you just emptied? Not clean. Here’s another test: taking an empty glass, pour some salt on the inside, coating it fairly well. Now, turn it over. Did some of the salt fall to the bar-surface? Then your glass could be cleaner. Most breweries and good beer bars take their beer glasses pretty seriously...which means they probably take ‘cleanliness’ seriously, too. If you’re going to drop $4.00 for a pint, you deserve to enjoy it in the most pristine container possible: an ultra-clean glass. Lacing. It’s what’s for beer!!
