  • Celebrity Juice Features Lisa Boudreau

    in Entertainment

    Lead singer Lisa Boudreau and lyrist/guitarist/producer Terry Tompkins were never completely lost, but did take a break from making records together, experimenting separately in different music genres. It was when they decided to get a little wild again that they discovered a newfound depth of creativity. “Terry and I have been together for 30 years,” Lisa smiles. “A lot of the sadcore stuff we write gets pulled from reality!”. Her vocals reference Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval, PJ Harvey and Beth Gibbons of Portishead in their dark and passionately detached singing. 

    Terry brings a love of psychedelic rock from his other band, The Now Feeling, inspired by shoegaze acts such as My Bloody Valentine and Tame Impala, while also paying homage to favorite albums from the ‘70s. “I went through a big ELO phase- though our title track ‘Goodbye Mine’ came out more Lennon-esque.” describes Terry, who cites Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett, Big Star, Beach Boys, Leonard Cohen and Fleetwood Mac amongst his influences from that decade. “We’re okay with being described as a ‘rock Carpenters’ - their best songs were all so melancholy, we love that.“ Goodbye Mine was produced specifically with the warm, sparse production of the ‘70s era in mind - making it an obvious for vinyl release, which is a first for Lost & Profound, after four previous albums.


    The 10 songs on Goodbye Mine have a through line of loss. Terry reflects, “In our music, all the characters are lost… but there is something profound in looking at what’s happening to them.” He speaks of a Kerouac-approach in lyric writing, “blurting for pages and pages”, and also the uses the cut-up process popularized by Burroughs and Bowie, forming images as “weird words come together”.

    Join us as we welcome author "Barbara Shoup."


     


    Barbara is a very talented author who has released her eighth novel, titled "Looking For Jack Kerouac."


     


    The novel has an interesting backstory: 


     In “Looking for Jack Kerouac,” Paul Carpetti picks up a copy of “On the Road” by legendary beat novelist Jack Kerouac during a class trip in New York City. The book has a dramatic impact on Paul, changing his whole outlook on life. But when he returns home from the city, his world crumbles. It’s 1964, and Paul is dealing with the death of his mother. He needs to get away.


     


    Paul hops in a car with his friend, Duke, and doesn’t look back. The two land in Florida where Paul finds Kerouac, who turns out to be nothing like the author he idolized. But, in the end, the writer helps Paul in his journey to self-discovery in an unexpected way.


     


    B. Shoup is the author seven other novels, including a School Library Journal Best Adult Book for Young Adults, “Vermeer’s Daughter,” and two others – “Wish You Were Here” and “Stranded in Harmony” – selected as American Library Association Best Books for Young Adults.

    Friday FARcast: On The Road With Richard Grossinger

    in Paranormal

    On today's show, I'm joined by my good friend, author, publisher, thinker, Richard Grossinger.  Richard has written epic bi-opics like "Out Of Babylon," and "New Moon" as well as a number of books on plant medicine and homeopathy.  He's one of the great, observational minds of our time and his ability to synthesize wide and often abstract perspectives, often in a stunning use of the English, language.


    Richard is currently en-route to Maine leaving California after many years.  We'll be getting some of his unique observations and perspectives from the road.


    In hour number two, I'll be dissecting the current crisis going down at America's borders, specifically, here in Texas, ground zero of the southern, human surge.


    Please join me.
