James Brown, the “hardest working man in show business,” inspired almost as many honorific titles as he did devotees.

From his first hit “Please Please Please” in 1956, “The King of Funk” and his high-octane transformation of gospel fervor into the explosive intensity of rhythm & blues redefined the destiny of black music in America.

Paul Janovskis live at The FCC

As a 12-year-old boy growing up in Melbourne, Paul Janovskis wanted not only to be a musician, he wanted to be a rebel in the greatest traditions of rock ‘n’ roll.

It was at that unruly age that Janovskis, who performs at the FCC on Saturday, picked up one of his dad’s guitars and started playing regularly. At the same time, he hooked up with some musically inclined neighbors — including Nick Seymour from Crowded House — and began playing in “party bands.”

“So I knew I wanted to be a musician from the age of 12,” Janovskis says.

Featured Local Band: Bleed This Skyline

What is the story behind the name of your group, Bleed This Skyline?
The story begins with us completing the line up for the band. We tried figuring out a name for the band and came up with a lot of names...but none of them felt right for our concept and music. It took us quite a while, and this was before Bamm and DD join the band. One night, Jick was out with his cousins and "History" was playing in the background. It is a nice old song by Funeral For A Friend, and the chorus goes "Let's bleed this skyline dry, your history is mine". It randomly hit Jick's mind, he suggested it to the band, and they all agreed to the name. It felt right for the band, suiting our personalities and our love for post-hardcore music. We are now better known as "BTS".

Dylan in Vietnam - Part III: The Press and the "Idiot Wind"

By: Garage Bar Phnom Penh Posted: April-13-2011 in

In Part I of this series I pointed out the extent to which the press has portrayed Dylan's history, and particularly his political history just so damn wrong. Well, it's only gotten worse, much worse.

The mainstream press continues to play up Dylan's non-existent connection to the anti-war movement in the U.S. Thus Margie Mason writes for the Associated Press:

Dylan in Vietnam - Part II: The Concert

By: Garage Bar Phnom Penh Posted: April-12-2011 in

If one were looking for symbolism in Dylan's first concert in Vietnam, one wouldn't have to look any further than the venue itself. RMIT University, located 20 minutes from downtown Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City's District 7, is a spanking clean campus of hip modern architecture and well manicured lawns surrounded by the coffee shops and housing that would typify any small university community in the developed world.
