Field Report on Carnival of Song Saturday September 15

Tune into Carnival of Song on Saturday from 4-6pm to hear Lynn Crystal's interview with Field Report and hear them perform 2 songs from their new self-titled CD.  Lynn first saw and heard Field Report at the Outlaw Roadshow in Williamsburg this summer. They were the only band she hadn't heard on the bill; in fact, all three others were some of her favorites: Counting Crows, We Are Augustines, and Kasey Anderson and the Honkies. She found herself riveted by Field Report's shimmering sounds and unique and moving lyrics, and she invited them on the show that very night.  Don't miss this interesting conversation with one of the best new bands around!

This Week on "Good Music"

It was a sleepy, grey morning in Milwaukee when I first met this week's interview. Way back then, the band was known as Crimson Sweet: a very aggressive punk rock band whose blisteringly frightening stage show was in great contrast with the polite and kind demeanor they exhibited over the breakfast bar at the hotel we shared.

After running the usual course of many great bands, they broke up. And so it goes...

However, a few weeks ago, it was with great joy that I discovered the band has reinvented itself. They replaced one member, changed their name to The 1-800-Band and rerouted their musical style to reflect that of the power pop genre.

In any case, I loved them then and I love them now.

Tune in this Saturday when Al and Polly join me on the program; giveaway vinyl was promised.

They are certainly Good Music!
