INTRODUCING : FREDD VELVET

GF received a Memphis-Morning-Message informing that our sweet sister Erica Qualy (The VIGNETTES, Objectum Sexuals) has once again put together something fierce. We find a group, titled “FREDD VELVET” and they’ve  wasted no time in recording and releasing a self-titled EP over a two-day period with the help of Hartle Road.

The band’s first release comes as an endearing sludge of steady-beat, neon-lit punk rock with plenty of auxiliary sounds which clang and tang to haunted organs that hover amid a well executed union of brass and axes.  This 5-song EP hosts a collection of tracks that range from the comatose march of “Green Eyes” to the suggestive nature of “I Want To Look At My Rocks“.  Clocking out right at around 10-minutes, the EP promises to be a pleasurable experience to all those familiar with the legendary history between Memphis, TN and independent punk rock music.

You can download the EP via bandcamp.

We’d like to dedicate this moment of time to GF’s founding father – Clem Sayer as he continues to venture on ward, a-midst thee eternal tangle of the cosmos…or as he simply put it : “Pickin and Grinnin” –   Mar 14th 1938 — Feb 15 2011

His dog, “Duncan” passed away earlier this month on February the 8th 2015.

MEET : COWBOY SLIM

Whilst sponging up the Nashville skyline, via a venue known as “The Nursing Home” I arose to the lawn with a glass of cheap chardonnay and managed to capture this fabulous song-writer, Cowboy Slim.  He strung out an entire grab bag of wit, comprised with the usual hooks, but some how presented it all in a fresh fashion, “exciting and inviting” my mind back to fallen folk pickers such as the late Randell Hylton

Please watch and share this video of COWBOY SLIM’s original, “Just In Case You Fall In Love With Me” -from the grassy hills of Nashville, TennesSEE :
