Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in ‘Storefront Hitchcock’ an in concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.

Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as ‘paintings you can listen to’. His most recent album THE MAN UPSTAIRS is a bittersweet love letter to a vanishing world. Produced by legendary folk-rock svengali Joe Boyd (Pink Floyd, Nick Drake) the album was critically acclaimed by MOJO, UNCUT and THE QUIETUS.

“A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings…” – Rolling Stone

“As a performer, he’s as much a wandering bard as a rock star.” – The Believer

Win a FREE copy of Riley Fox’ new cd, “Unamerican”

Riley Fox - "Unamerican" cd - front

Riley Fox - "Unamerican" cd - front

Riley Fox has been described as cerebral, energetic, sarcastic, laid-back, engaging, and other seemingly contradictory words. He’s also very funny. On December 16-17, 2011 he recorded his shows at Out Front On Main in Murfreesboro and is now releasing his debut stand-up comedy cd, “Unamerican.” Here’s what Mr. Fox has to say about it:

Riley Fox - Unamerican - back

“I’ve always loved all kinds of comedy, but my favorite kind was comedy that was daring, fearless, and challenged society. Hopefully, I’ve met that personal standard with Unamerican, my debut live comedy album. This album represents a versatile collection of EVERYTHING I love in stand-up comedy: hard-hitting social commentary, silly observations, and impressions. Oh, and religious jokes. Lots of religious jokes. So if you enjoy those sorts of things, you’ll love Unamerican. If you don’t, then feel free to buy the album anyway and just give it to some kid wearing a Rage Against The Machine t-shirt or something. They’ll probably enjoy it more.”

 

Register now to win one (1) copy of the new Riley Fox: “Unamerican” cd from NashvilleStandUp.com. We’ll pick THREE winners on May 13th.

Win a FREE copy of Paul Strickland’s “Levels of Difficulty” cd!

Paul Strickland: Levels of Difficulty

Paul Strickland: Levels of Difficulty

My mental image of Paul Strickland is him in the Zanies green room looking over pages of his material that had been typed out word for word.. reading it under his breath, rehearsing the inflections and energy he would put into each line. A few years ago, this process struck me as funny because you just don’t see a lot of comics doing that. Most have scraps of paper or napkins with one or two words written on them that represent each joke.. or notebooks full of scribbles – sentence fragments, punchlines, random words and broken thoughts and ideas. You generally don’t see comics going over full transcripts of their acts, or talking about the “arc” of their set or the “through-line” they’re trying to establish but I associate these things with Paul’s process. I’m assuming it was his background in theater that led to these habits, but whatever it is has worked in Paul’s favor.

From his first open mic in February 2006, Paul already seemed to have a good head for the business of comedy. He was always working on new, bookable material. He put effort into everything he did and treated it like a job from the very beginning.. which is exactly why he was able to quit his day job in 2009. Since then he has written and performed his one man shows and traditional standup all over the country.

Paul says, “I firmly believe that making people laugh at themselves and their world is a good way to help them escape while, hopefully, gaining some perspective on what they’re escaping from, and distracting them from the fact that I just took their money.”

Strickland recorded “Levels of Difficulty,” his first stand-up album, a few hours up the road at the Comedy Caravan in Louisville. It is available to buy right now at iTunes and Amazon.

As a ‘thank you’ to the local comedy fans in Nashville who supported Paul from the very beginning, NashvilleStandUp and Paul are happy to be giving away three (3!) copies of the cd on April 22nd. Enter to win below.

Paul says, “Listen, people laughed when I said the things on this CD and we recorded both their laughter and the things I said. Now YOU can laugh WITH people that laughed months ago AT the same things I said MONTHS ago! Building community, that’s what I’m about.”

[UPDATE: the contest has closed! Buy the album already, cheapskate!]

If you don’t have time to screw around, waiting to see if you win, feel free to go ahead and buy it right now:

Paul Strickland: Levels Of Difficulty (back)

Win the new “Red State Update: How Freedom Sounds” cd!

Red State Update - How Freedom Sounds
Some 10 million people have logged online to watch their favorite Southern comedic political pundit wannabees, Red State Update, sound off on everything from politics to pop culture and now after all this waiting, the time has finally come. Yes, America, you’re in for a treat! Red State Update finally released their highly anticipated debut album, “How Freedom Sounds,” on Tuesday, July 22.
And they’re taking no prisoners, gunnin’ for Miley Cyrus who happened to be releasing her CD that very same day. “I tell you what, if we don’t outsell Miley Cyrus in the first week of sales, Jackie and I are retiring from Red State Update. We are outta here!” says Dunlap, the younger, fatter of the pair. “But don’t worry… that ain’t gonna happen. I mean really, think about it, what’s Miley Cyrus gonna sell… like a million tops? I think we can beat that, no problem.”
“How Freedom Sounds” features a blend of comedy skits about topics such as illegal immigration, yard sales and strippers, as well as a handful of quality musical recordings including such future hits as “Iraq (I Don’t Wanna Go),” the Bonnaroo-inspired “Get the Hell Out of My Store, Hippie,” and their moving anthem “Red State State Of Mind.”
Many of the themes featured on “How Freedom Sounds” should be familiar to their thousands of internet fans who have been following Red State Update since its inception in 2005 — that’s when Jackie and Dunlap first began their video blog to mouth off about politics and whatever else topped the headlines of the day. And it was just last summer when Red State Update got their big break during the nationally televised CNN/YouTube debates where they featured a video asking the candidates whether all the media attention on Al Gore “hurts y’all’s feelings?”
It was that wacky video which helped boost the Redneck duo’s popularity well beyond their loyal internet following and soon the mainstream media began knocking on their doors. Since then, they’ve been profiled by the Associated Press, appeared in USA Today and Newsweek, featured on the cover of the Nashville Scene and The Tennessean, and have made numerous pundit appearances on CNN.
But none of the accolades are a surprise to the confident (perhaps, overly so) pair when asked if they ever imagined being signed by a label, releasing a CD and receiving so much attention. “Oh, I figured this would all happen to me and Jackie, making a hit album and getting our rightful place on the world stage. I think we’ll do like 75-80 million in our first week of sales, easy,” says Dunlap, who dons his trademark American flag t-shirt over his abundant-sized belly. “I mean, after all, we are the
salvation of the failing music business.”
“Oh shut up,” responds Jackie, the older curmudgeon of the two. “Why do you have to go and say something stupid like that? I’m just happy that we recorded a good quality album that will stand the test of time, that people can listen to while they’re doing chores around the house… or hell, they can just play us in their trucks while they’re out driving around.”
Speaking of trucks, Dualtone Music Group is giving Red State Update fans a chance to win a Chevy truck… and not just any truck! Dualtone is giving away Jackie’s 1982 white Chevy Scottsdale pick-up truck to a very lucky winner; and to see more details about the contest click here: www.youtube.com/watch%3fv=WROqq6X4jGA

Sounds,” which hit stores July 22nd, please visit:
