This week's Throwback Thursday takes up back seven years to 2008 as we talked to Eric Bloom one of the founding members of Blue Oyster Cult.
The group has been rocking for 48 years now, pumping out hits like "Burning for You" and "Godzilla". They found popularity again when Saturday Night Live in 2000 when their song "Don't Fear the Reaper" inspired the now famous "Cowbell Sketch."
We talked to Bloom about the sketch, his side work of creating works of art on guitars, and the longevity of the band.
Chick Cashman is a great guitarist, song writer, film and documentary director, events coordinator hailing from Tucson Az. with time in Los Angeles CA, New York and Europe. Chick is a frequent guest on albums from around the world. Chick was featured as a prime player in my book 'Lipstick Legends,' and is a frequent performer in Tucson at the Congress Hotel and all the other happening venues and theaters.
"He has worked with the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Friends of Dean Martin and Angie Bowie. His Film scores include Glenn O’ Brien’s TV Party and Star Pets. However, for several years in the 1990’s he transformed into the cross dressing Mr. Chick Cashman the Swingin’ Cowboy. He and his crack band The Countrypoltians were hosts to humorously popular weekly burlesque/ variety show at Club Congress. What started out innocently enough became Tucson’s own Sodom and Gomorah–drag queens, GoGo dancers, foul mouth comics and even a few animal acts were not uncommon. In between these acts the band would play trashy instrumental music—a ‘cross’ between Link Wray and the NY Dolls. Cashman prided himself on including many local musicians as well as national touring acts to perform on his show. Chick has been tight-lipped on his plans for the evening, but he has hinted that the performance will make the old variety show appear more like the Lawrence Welk show in contrast. Chick Cashman, like Clif Taylor, is a Capricorn."

Mr. Moonshine is a 4-piece alternative rock band from Long Beach, California with a fearlessness to explore the bizarre. Brothers Anthony Pedroza (vocals, bass, guitar) and Andrew Pedroza (vocals, synth), Daysmel Muniz (guitar), and Ternell Cooksey (drums) embrace the often-uncharted territories of music, which lends itself to the band’s alluringly dark sound and theatrical mentality. Mr. Moonshine formed in the summer of 2012 while Anthony, Andrew and Daysmel were in New York City performing the rock opera, LOLPERA, which Andrew wrote. “Comfort Me With Absinthe” is truly Mr. Moonshine’s sonic flagship -- a clean, mysterious, beautiful sound that hints at the band’s inherently theatrical nature. The combination of brothers Andrew and Anthony’s contrasting yet complimentary vocals act as the bait that strongly yet carefully pull the listener through a conceptual soundscape of textural and emotional instrumentation. The band’s fearlessness carries through to their general attitude of openness and honesty. Ultimately though, as the last track “Bend Or Break” suggests, the listener is presented with an album that dances with the ebb and flow, or yin and yang, of light and darkness. Mr. Moonshine have played countless festivals and events such as the OC Pride, Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor, Long Beach’s Zombie Walk, and Long Beach Pride, where they covered the entire soundtrack of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, costumed in drag. Fans can expect highly energetic performance that, as Andrew says, “aren’t afraid to get a little spooky, weird and sexy all at once.”
Grand Analog is a raw collective of seasoned record collectors, musicians, and self-described beat junkies with music described as “a beautiful mess of rap’n’roll, dub, and soul.” Their latest release, 2013's Modern Thunder received critical acclaim upon its release and led to the band signing with Jillionaire of Major Lazer's new label, Feel Up Records.
As for The Good Boys, this three-piece focuses on music’s golden past by nurturing the sounds and aesthetics of early innovators like The Beatles and The Beach Boys. The Good Boys celebrate a time when a dapper group of men dressed in suit jackets and neckties could turn a room of well-behaved teenagers into a teeming frenzy.

Title: Underground Wednesday with Special Guest Shae Mill
Born into a musical family it comes as no surprise that Shannan “Shae Mill" Miller has chosen to pursue a career in music. According to this multi-talented lover of the arts, she has been surrounded by music since birth. Her grandma said that before Shae could talk she use to hum herself to sleep. When she was a little girl her mother sang and played the guitar, and was a member of a band. Her father also played the guitar as well as drums. Shae fondly remembers accompanying her mother to many of her band rehearsals. Her grandmother was the choir director at church. Music was always present in the house as her grandfather, an avid vinyl records collector, and her aunt use to play a wide range of music at home such as Rock Steady, Reggae, Dancehall, Country, Gospel, Latin, Jazz, Blues, Soul, R&B and Disco.
It wasn't long before Shae began to sing in church. She was so little at the time that she had to stand on a chair during her performances. She credits her family for the development of her talent in her earlier years. By the time she was in the third grade she was singing at concerts, weddings and school events. After high school, Shae Mill went on to Northern Caribbean University (NCU). While in college she met a fellow student by the name of Jermaine T-One Hamilton. T-One was also very involved in music and encouraged Shae to learn audio engineering and practice making beats. She did just that.
Since then Shae Miller has worked with other producers, artistes and production houses. She has done background vocals for several established artistes. She has also added songwriting to her list of talents and has
