Being Rebellious - Again. Why?

Being Rebellious - Again. Why?
From CNN: Volunteer Rebels? Tennessee County votes Monday on raising Confederate flag. Story . it's a flag people. nothing more, nothing less. what it represents is what it represents *to you* and your feelings are not universal. no one has that "right". what we do have is tolerance and understanding of the complex views and attitudes that make up this country but somewhere along the way it became a crime. a symbol of hate that if anyone used it to support overall freedom, they were racist. period. extremes handed out by mob mentality that bear no meaning or even truth to the statement. just h...

the winery dogs - hot streak

the winery dogs - hot streak
I suppose my biggest critique of the new winery dogs could be considered pretty harsh. I’ll go ahead and brace you for it now so it comes as no surprise later but the worst part of this release is that sooner or later it is in fact…over. This mixed bag of funk rock will simply capture you and your imagination and either take you back to when “funk” was coming into its own as you remember it, or you get to feel what it was like when it was new. This sound. While I certainly can’t say it’s a brand new sound, it is different. That in itself is new these days. In their previous release, the winery...

Cavo - The Painful Art of Letting Go

Cavo - The Painful Art of Letting Go
Preparing for the new release, I wanted to take a minute to go to their past. Way back into their past and look at an early effort from Cavo, just to give you a point of reference in how far this band has come. But also to tell you how far ahead of the game they started. You see, I believe we all have a private cd or two that we just keep going back to when times are great, or even when we need something familiar to get us through not so great times. You can look at their musical career and remember songs like Champaign and Crash and even one of my personal favorites, We All Fall Down, and jus...

so you want to start a radio station?

updated 4/6/17 Between people coming to Renegade, finding us on facebook (yea, right. People are too busy showing off their lunch to give a damn who else is out there) or being involved in discussion groups such as linked in and so forth, I see a lot of people asking “man, help me setup a radio station!” One of my first questions back is “why”? Oddly enough that stops a lot of people in their tracks. You're really looking at a very expensive hobby and by expensive, I mean the ability to stream music is going to be $720 a year an up. that's just for the rights to do that and going through strea...

craving strange - a life exceptional

  "Dirty Rock"  kicks off the release with one hell of a groove.. You can't help but want to dance in your seat with that deep, gutteral bass line from Tommy Wendt.. Then it's all guns blazing as  you've got the Anthem-like  "Your Last Day Alive" .  "Here and Gone"  is one that sticks out as well  - Catchy rhythm & Passionate lyrics all in a tight package. Then there's the title track,  "A Life Exceptional"  which SCREAMS crowd-pleaser - and that's not a bad thing.  "Do You Remember"  has possibly some of the most powerful lyrics on th...
