s Spring here? Is it? It’s funny how so many of us forget how insane the weather of February and March can be, myself included. I am a person that needs sunshine to function. I may be considered by many as a person that prefers the later hours; however, clear skies and warmth on my face are included in that descriptive. Though rain may be the source of life, can we please regulate it a little better? I mean, come on here. We have the “power” according to some to predict the future of mankind, but we can’t ensure everyone enjoys moderate temperatures, like California. I mean, come on...

All kidding aside, slowly winter exits, with the promise of warmer weather right around the corner. As we begin to warm up, the tempo begins to pick up and we all come out of winter hiding. Slowly, you see the leaks of announced festivals, races, shows, and events spread throughout, but there is something missing this year... Do you see it? Have you been noticing the changes? Well, if you haven’t noticed it, then you are gonna miss out. What I am talking about is where is Kustom Kulture heading? It is rapidly changing, and are any of us ready for it? At one level, it is eras in history of a sub-kulture just following an evolution of time and age, but where is it going? For us, it is taking us more and more to our roots. You see, this past winter while hibernating, we have been working on our plan to hit roads less traveled. We are extremely excited about some of the early festivals we are intimately involved with, including Angel City Kustom Kulture Rally & Music Fest and Rockin’ Route 66 on historic Route 66 in Tucumcari, NM. For us, our focus continues to nostalgia, but in a way that is all-inclusive for families and friends of enthusiasts to enjoy, just as much as the true ‘motorhead.’ You’ll see several changes with our pattern this season. We may or may not be at some of what was considered a staple event for Garage71 or Grease Inc. to be at due to these changes in the wind. But you know us, too. Just because we might not be there in the aspect of promotions doesn’t mean we won’t be in the crowds of people enjoying whatever show or event is going on. We have some great major partners across the country and value these kinds of relationships. We listen to and watch everyone while traveling coast to coast. It is amazing how many stories have the same ending, but people and places seem to be the only thing that changes in them. We are all creatures of habit. Some of our habits are good, while other habits -- let’s just say we won’t talk about that. As we roll into this season, you’ll see many of these partnerships we are referencing moving ahead and creating some great, exciting, and memorable events, like Hellbender Harley-Davidson’s After Party for the Great American Motorcycle Show back in January. Now


that was a ‘cabin fever’ party to say the least, and many we bump into on a nice day that were there are still talking about it. I mean, come on! You’re at PBR at the Braves Baseball Stadium throwing down with Harley-Davidson. It was an epic night. Well, that’s the goal this year: to continue creating epic moments throughout the year that each of us will talk about for years to come. We have some ideas and again are working with both partners as well as who we believe are influencers in the Kustom Kulture. You can clearly see this month how much our content is evolving, like getting behind-the-scenes interviews during recording sessions with some great talent, like Slim and the Gems. Or, how about sitting down and talking with talented artists like Billie Jayne DeVille. Trust me when I say this is just part of a new trend beginning. As people elevate their expectations and experiences, you will see Grease Inc. right there beside you the entire time. Enjoy this issue and we will plan to see you this spring at Angel City on either two wheels or in your kustom rod. Cruise on down for one of the best line-ups ever in this Ghost Town. You can check out all the details in the program section of this issue. | ISSUE 121: 2019

BEHIND THE RECORDING OF By 'Rockin' Rob Davis Photography by Photos of Siren


t’s not often that I get the opportunity to get back in the studio to record music. It seems most of the work I get is all live sound. So when the chance does come around, I jump on it. That’s exactly what I did when I had a conversation with my friend Monroe Slim. Slim had just left a band where he played bass to start his own project with him being the main songwriter and frontman. He had mentioned to me about finding someone to record the music from his new project Slim And The Gems. I immediately got excited and proclaimed my interest in doing this project for him. When he accepted, we immediately found a studio to do the tracking that was closer


to them than where my studio was located. We chose Reservoir Studios in Jackson, Ga. Recording this album for Slim was one of the best recording experiences I’ve ever had. These guys came prepared to play. From the songs and performance to the overall attitude

and vibe of the band, I knew from the moment I hit record we had something special. From the thunderous precision of drummer Zen Ford, to the finger-slapping magic of upright bass player Rob Russo, to the man himself: guitar-picking, smooth-singing, Skinny Weight Champ of the World Mr. Monroe Slim!! These dudes came to play and were serious about what they were doing and I think that is obvious with how the final product came out. This is by far the happiest I’ve been with a final product in all the years I’ve been doing this. I hope all of you get a chance to listen to this album and get as much enjoyment of Slim's songwriting as I did.


TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT HOW SLIM AND THE GEMS WAS FORMED Monroe Slim: It actually took a while to get it started. I got into rockabilly music a few years ago, and it gave me a charge about playing like I hadn't felt for years. I started writing a few songs and decided that's what I wanted to do at this point in my life, so I gave Zen a call because we have been playing together off and on for a lot of years, and he was totally on board. The original line up had me on the upright because I had been a bass player for 30 plus years, Zen on drums and a guitar player to be determined. We tried out guitar players for almost a year and could never find the right "fit" for us. So one night I was at a Psyco DeVilles show and Hot Rod Walt, whom I had met in the course of my journey, suggested to me that I move over to guitar and try out a bass player. Of course he happened to know one who was available and hooked me up with Rob. I'll admit I was skeptical at first that it could work, but things just kinda clicked for us and here we are!!

WHAT'S THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR MUSIC? MS: Shoot, I can be inspired by just about anything! It can be anything from pretty girls, to Cars, to my cat chasing her tail!! It could be something someone said, or a phrase Ive heard a lot , anything really. When I get an idea I write it down, or put it in my phone. I play guitar every day and usually get the music first, then Ill look back at those ideas and see if anything fits what Im playing. I write whatever comes out and try not to over analyze what genre it may fit in, but Im usually directly affected by whatever Im listening to in a given time period.

WHAT ROLE DOES YOUR MUSIC LEND TO THE SOUTHEAST MUSIC SCENE? MS: I think that we, as well as the other amazing bands on the scene, give a fresh alternative for someone who is tired of the standard "Good Ol' Boy" bands that the area is flooded with. The whole rockabilly/ kustom kulture scene is so much more vibrant and just plain fun!! We play fun toe

18 | ISSUE 121: 2019



tapping original music and a wide variety of covers, and people have been really receptive to that.

WHAT IS EACH OF YOUR'S CURRENT FAVORITE SONG TO PLAY? WHY MS: My favorite to play at present is a new one that we've only played in public once to date, which I wont name yet, but I really like playing "Taking Names"... Its kinda straight forward rock and roll and I dont have to think about it too much!! ha ha Rob Russo: I would have to say "Let Er Rip" because its the first one that we played that was good right away, and its only gotten better. Zen Ford: Im going to agree with Slim on the "un named" song... but as far as our regular rotation, I will go with "Chasin Tail". I like the progression, and the lyrics say something that most people can relate to.

WHAT HAS BEEN SO FAR YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT PERFORMING? MS: I think our performance at Angel City for the Hell on Wheels event this past October has to be it for me... ZF: I gotta agree with Slim... AGAIN! Amazing set up and good people totally into what we were doing.


RR: I would have to say our "sink or swim" moment at our first show!! Last years Ramone's Tribute at Star Bar.

Brian Setzer, and a lot of the upper tier bands that are on our scene today.


RR: Geezer Butler, Buddy Holly, Gary Moore, Alice Cooper, J.Giles, Johnny Cash, They all offer something different and interesting.

MS: I'm not real sure about that one!! I have always had quite the imagination, and been a bit of a dreamer, but without dreams we wouldn't have reality. Each of us is a little creative and a little crazy in our own way.

ZF: Mid 70s rock and roll for me, Boston, Foreigner, The Doobies, I always liked Jimi Hendrix stuff, then later, old country... Haggard, Jones, and Strait.



MS: Man... So many have made an impact over the years. In the past, Jerry Reed, Chet Atkins, Merle Haggard, then Kiss, Led Zepplin and the like. As of late, Rev Horton Heat,

MS: Hopefully we can continue to grow and improve as a band and grow a fan base. Our debut' album will be out soon, and I would hope that we would be moving on to bigger and better shows and continue write music that people enjoy. | ISSUE 121: 2019

The southern ghost town of Angel City rises again this spring with the Wild West Kustom Kulture Rally & Music Festival. Angel City has been taking place twice a year for over a decade now. During this time, the entire family and crew have been working hard on some new ideas that will blow you away. This spring, Angel City plans to take us all back to Wild Bill’s Wild West Show! We continue to listen to everyone that has been coming for years to Angel City. Over time, we have added some very interesting and fun entertainment to the mix, and this spring offers even that much more! It’s time to ride that Iron Horse to town each day to participate in everything from the mechanical bull, to our “Rowdy Gents” Man Games, to our Bike Show, and now a Hot Rod Rodeo, a traditional rod and kustom show. We will be bringing back some of our vixens for the late night cage dancing at the world-famous Captain and Maybelle “Vagabond Side Show”. The main stage, hosted by Garage71’s “Big Boy,” will have a national artist line-up, bigger than Angel City has ever seen. From Rockabilly to Southern Rock, this line-up is the BEST yet!!! You can check out the sneak releases beginning in January 2019 of our entertainment. You can expect some returning artists as well as some amazing award-winning talent that some may have seen on national TV shows like “The Voice” and ‘Real Country’: For USA Network’s Music Competition Series. Connect with us on social media via Facebook and Instagram. *Kustom Kulture is a neologism used to describe the artworks, vehicles, hairstyles, and fashions of those who drove and built custom cars and motorcycles in the United States of America from the 1950s through today. It was born out of the hot rod culture of Southern California of the 1960s.[1] In the early days of hot rodding, many fashions and styles developed. Over time, each of these distinct styles of customizing has blended and reshaped our everyday life. Artists such as Von Dutch (Kenny Howard), Robert Williams, and custom car builder Ed “Big Daddy” Roth along with Lyle Fisk and Dean Jeffries; hot rod and lowrider customizers such as the Barris Brothers (Sam and George Barris);[2] and numerous tattoo artists, automobile painters, and movies and television shows such as American Graffiti and The Munsters (The Munster Koach, DRAG-U-LA) have all helped to form what is known as Custom Culture. Custom Culture is usually identified with the greasers of the 1950s, the drag racers of the 1960s, and the lowriders of the 1970s. Other subcultures that have had an influence on Custom Culture include the Skinheads, mods and rockers of the 1960s, the punk rockers of the 1970s, the metal and rockabilly music, the scooterboys of the 1980s, and psychobilly of the 1990s. Each separate culture has added their own customizations to the cars, added their own fashions, influenced the music, and included their own ideas of what is cool, what is acceptable, and what is not. Everything from wild pinstriped paint jobs, to choptop Mercurys, to custom Harley-Davidson and Triumph motorcycles, to metal-flake and black primer paint jobs, to music, cartoons, and monster movies have all influenced what defines anyone and anything who is part of this automobile subculture.

Matt Brantley

Hailing from the heart of Georgia, The Matt Brantley Band Is a country and southern rock experience that you won’t want to miss. The love they have for the music that they play and the fans that come to see them definitely shines through in each and every performance. You are guaranteed to have an amazing time at a MBB show. After auditioning and placing 2nd in the 2012 Milledgeville Idol competition Matt realized that being a professional musician wasn’t as much of an improbability as he once thought. He soon after began putting a band together and after a couple of personnel changes finally landed on the lineup that felt just right, consisting of ; Matt Brantley (Lead vocals & rhythm guitar), Rowdy Hood (Lead guitar), Jesse Perkins (Bass) and Brayden Long (Drums). Since forming in 2013 the band has caused quite a stir in the south eastern music scene with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Winning such awards as Georgia country’s male vocalist of the year (2016) and the 11th Hour’s best local band (2017), the band is always looking for that next big thing that will help them grow in their musical journey. Much Love, The Brantley Boys

He also met fans from across the world inside Fan Fair X where he signed autographs at the Durango Boots booth.

Atomic Boogie

Take a vintage Sun Rockabilly 45 RPM record and a classic Chess Blues 45 RPM record; apply enough musical heat to fuse them together into a toe tapping, body gyrating boogie explosion; and then you’ve got a band like Atomic Boogie! Taking their name from an eclectic 1950s radio show called The Atomic Boogie Hour, this rockin’ three piece band has been tearing up the Georgia club circuit for the past six years. Ink-n-Oil goes to a 20 year veteran group within the Kustom Kulture scene. Crossing boundaries at all levels Atomic Boogie have played with some of the legends of Sun Records, to countless stand in appearances. They stand on their own as one of the most energetic Rockabilly bands of today, Atomic Boogie.

Zach & Cheyloe

Zach & Cheyloe are a duo from the deep south. They, quite literally, draw a blank when it comes to genre. “Fire Tests Gold” may make you think of blues rock until “Without You” tumbles you headlong into indie folk. You may be able to hang out there for a while but eventually songs like “Actin’ Like a Fool” or “Drag in Home Tonight” will take you right into the country and beyond. Z&C often march under the “alt-country” banner but their sound is a jigsaw puzzle: many different pieces that come together perfectly to create a picture of two people who love the craft of songwriting.



Red Dirt Mountain

Red Dirt Mountain has been called “Southern Sludge” with the blues slides, the high gain and the unpredictable drumming. We play in low tunings to give us Low southern sound we want. If you are looking for a different southern sound then check us out. Get Some Dirt On Ya !!!! “Playing original music like you’ve never heard it played before. we are blue collar workin class from the southside. you aint heard nothing like this..we will bring the show when we come and you will be entertained!!! playing southern rock is what we do..”

Smokey Jones and the 3 Dollar Pistols

Smokey and the boys are bringing back 70’s trucker country and honkey tonk one gig at a time. After successful stints in other Atlanta bands this group of hillbillies got together to bring back real country. For fans of Jerry Reed, to George Jones, Waylon Jennings, and a long list of other country outlaws, the band has a classic sound and great stage presence. Bring your dancing boots if you go see these guys live and an aspirin for the next morning after all the whiskey. - Frank Simone [GA Country Magazine]

Adairs Run

Adairs Run is a country rock duo with a fiery edge based in Nashville, TN. Their sound encompasses the roots from rock and roll all the way to melodies that tie into the heartfelt storytelling in today’s country music. The band is made up of two members; Todd Cameron and Pat Pollifrone. ​ The band was recently featured on USA network’s new music series, Real Country. Real Country’s executive producer and celebrity judge Shania Twain launched the TV show with her extended panel of country music stars Jake Owen and Travis Tritt. The band was hand chosen to be on Jake Owen’s team. The season premier aired on Nov. 13th, 2018 showcasing the bands dynamic live performance style and proves why Adairs Run is the next hot act in all of country music. ​Recently the band worked with multi-platinum grammy award nominated artist, Chris Daughtry, on a new song entitled “Wild Heart.”



Captain and Maybelle

Captain and Maybelle have become household names. “A shock and a laugh is what you get from us! We are partners in crime and focused on taking over the world. Performing classic sideshow entertainment with a contemporary twist and delivering zingers and stingers is what we do best! You can call him a sword swallower, human blockhead or fire breather; I call him the mister. You just call me Maybelle; we’ll get along fine! You may have caught our act at Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, on “America’s Got Talent” Season 6, Six Flags Over Georgia’a Annual Fright Fest, “Atlanta & Co.”, “The Soup”, Coney Island’s Sideshows by the Seashore or a myriad of other equally impressive opportunities.”

The Boondock Kingz

Country Rap Duo, Danny O’Moore and Kuntry Strong make up the ambitious group BoonDock Kingz.They bring their own sound and experiences to the game, constantly implanting their footprint in this new genre. Danny O, Appalachian born and raised in the shadows of the Blue Ridge in North Georgia, spent much of his youth hustling, weathering the struggle of poverty in the hills around Buford and Gainesville,GA. His creative aspect, brings hope to many stuck in hard times. Kuntry Strong is from Upstate New York, a rural environment that rivals any. The backwoods and backroads, not only help cultivate his style, but help create it. Both being from different environments, music brought them together and an obligation to represent the lower and working classes. Their styles are intertwined perfectly like an ‘Outkast’ match made in heaven. Their tenacious journey to transcend genres, get back to the roots and express themselves freely without constraints has resonated effectively with their fans and fellow artists in the industry!

Bette Machete is a freelance model, performer and producer. She travels internationally, during that time posing for artists and photographers as well as performing burlesque and sideshow. She has her very own production company, Ragbag Productions, which specializes in turn-of-the-century style variety shows.



Willie Heath Neal

In the era when the “Outlaws” - Wille Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, Waylon Jennings etc. - ruled the radio, another little outlaw was born in the back of a cop car somewhere in Gwinnett County Georgia. It took him many years and many roads (including stays in foster homes, a stint in the Navy and a run with a punk band) but eventually Willie Heath Neal returned to his roots and began bashing out the kind of outlaw country that used to be so famous but now is in short supply. Back then, “Outlaw” was more than a marketing ploy, it was a way of life. The myths mixed with the music. Neal remembers that time, and he delivers his trashed up take on honky tonk with that same sense of honesty on his latest Chicken Ranch release Out of Highway. Neal has long been popular with his peers such as likeminded touring partners from the past ala Wayne Hancock, the Rev. Horton Heat, and J. D. Wilkes of The Legendary Shack Shakers(who makes an appearance on the record). Hank Williams IIIeven cut (but not yet released) one of Neal’s tunes. Now it’s time for their fans to make note of Neal. Because now with Out of Highway Neal has made the album of his life, one that should make the original Outlaws proud to call him one of their own

She wasn’t born in some small town where everyone knows everyone else’s name. She didn’t grow up listening to Hank, Johnny or Merle. For Kira Annalise, hearin g country music for the first time changed her life. “I heard Willie Heath Neal play Hung it Up by Junior Brown at some dive bar in Marietta, GA and I was just blown away. I went home, learned 3 chords on the guitar and started writing songs- then I just kinda kept doing it.” -Kira Annalise In 2017, Kira put out her first full length album chock-full of heartaches, bad intentions and even one she wrote with her daughter about their Home Owners Association (I’ll give you a hint, they aren’t fans of the HOA). Kira’s album, The Damsel, blends that old country sound with some modern elements and creates something that is unexpected and powerful.

orn and raised in Athens, GA, Billie Jayne DeVille has made her home Anderson, SC. As a kid, one of her favorite things to do was flip through the family photo albums. "I loved looking through the countless black and white images of my handsome grandpa posing beside his ‘53 Chevy, my beautiful grandma in her pretty dresses beside her ‘57 Bel Air, and many other memories of a simpler time and place. I would listen for hours, fascinated as they told me stories of the way things were "back then”. I truly believe these people and this era played a major role in making me who I am today."



Billie Jayne has been going to car shows for as long as she can remember and has always felt at home in the kustom kulture scene. Having a lifelong love of art, classic cars, Pinups, and oldies music, pinstriping has been the perfect way for her to merge her love of Art and cars. "I started pinstriping several years ago as a hobby. I striped in the evenings and every weekend!" In October of 2017, Billie Jayne DeVille was fortunate enough to turn a long-time passion into a full-time career. Working together with John Parnell of J-RAP Restorations in the center bay of the historic McLees Garage in Anderson, South Carolina, has provided Billie Jayne the opportunity to do what she loves in an environment that inspires her every day. With car show season creeping upon us, it is always a busy time for Billie Jayne. From getting pieces of art together to showcase, to scheduling events and jobs while maintaining her weekly commissions, there is never a dull moment! "We recently held another car show here at our shop and I was very excited to host my very first panel jam with several artists from all over coming together to spend the day painting and sharing stories." "I usually spend my spare time studying the work of other pinstripers and artists that I admire and discussing different techniques. I find myself constantly being inspired by other artists, one of which being one of my biggest inspirations, fellow pinstriper David Piatek. He has been a close friend of mine for many years and whether it's painting together at a show or just talking shop in his driveway, he is always a pleasure to be around and definitely a major contributor to me doing what I do." You could say that art is in Billie Jayne's blood. Her grandpa was also a pinstriper who was very talented at doing paint and body work, woodworking, and portraits, just to name a few things. Unfortunately, he passed away before Billie Jayne had really decided to get serious about pinstriping but she would like to think that he would be very happy with what she is doing now and that in itself is a motivator for her to continue. People often ask: "What's the strangest thing you've ever pinstriped?" Nothing really seems strange to Billie Jayne anymore. "I've pinstriped anything from toilet seats, high heel shoes, purses, and KitchenAid mixers to luggage and countless other odds and ends. I've always pretty

much gone by the motto "If it will sit still long enough, I will stripe it!'' Some of my favorite things to stripe aside from vehicles are guitars. It's fun to work with the different shapes and curves that they have and I enjoy making the design flow to compliment them. I like to use colors outside the box sometimes that people might not think to use together. I have found some really great combos that way and it's amazing how color can change many designs for the better." "A lot of times people have an idea of what they want when they bring me their car or truck or whatever they are having me stripe but it is truly an amazing feeling when someone trusts your ability and says, "Just do your thing!" It's an even better feeling when the piece is complete and I get to see the excitement on their faces as they look at what has been done. That has to be above all my favorite part. I consider myself very fortunate to do what I love to do and to be trusted to be part of personalizing someone's pride and joy by adding the artistic finishing touches of a project or purchase and I will always be grateful for that. " Keep an eye out for Ms. Billie Jayne DeVille at shows throughout the Southeast. Though Billie Jayne has made a choice to stay closer to home this year and focus on her work at the shop, don't be surprised if she makes an appearance at some of her favorite shows including Hell on Wheels in Georgia and Steel in Motion in South Carolina.
