Burque Music Scene: Memphis P. Tails

Posted on January 24, 2015 at 8:30am 1 Comment

It's no secret that I am a major blueshead.  When I want to hear some scorching, in-your-face, screaming blues guitar, I go listen to the Memphis P. Tails.  Many members of this band have come and gone, but the mainstay has always been guitarist Darin Goldston.  This is one hard working band.  Whether playing blues festivals or Molly's up in Tijeras, they never…

Big Giant Hearts

Hearts, love, and kisses have been on my mind a lot lately, both the real kind and also the Valentine-y kind.  In a couple of weeks (24 days, to be exact) we will celebrate St. Valentine’s Day.  I am one of those types who doesn’t care if it is a Hallmark holiday, I like getting mushy cards and…


Burque Music Scene: The Shakers

Posted on January 17, 2015 at 9:00am 2 Comments

My friend Neat Pete and I used to love to go out dancing all the time, way back in the 80s.  It was our weekend ritual to seek out the best and most danceable bands in town.   The Shakers fit the bill.  They were one of the most popular new wave bands in Albuquerque at the time.  We would get out on the dance floor and hop around in our best Guess jeans and new wave dance…

Adelita, I just posted a book review and marked it for Nov. 5, but it popped up anyway, I think. I can see it, but maybe no one else can. I dated it for the fhe so that you could make the decision on when to use it. Can you let me know if it is already posted and if so, can you move it around to where it's supposed to be.  I am having so much trouble negotiation DCF.  

I think this is a post that might get some hits because I listed a whole bunch of names of former Albuquerque Journal reporters 1950s to 1973, who might be members or hear about it. Sounds funny, but when you see it in context, you'll understand better i think.
