Last layer of the new Abandon Jalopy

Auto Date Saturday, March 19th, 2011

Brad Smith is currently working on his new Abandon Jalopy album called ‘Death & Joy’. He had Rogers Stevens to play guitar on a song named “Summer don’t leave”, Lenny Castro to play the drums and also Chris Shinn to do some backing vocals, “It sounds killer, makes me mad that he sings that well… he just killed it” said Brad talking about Shinn.
A very special guest will also be part of the album: Nico Blue Hoon (Shannon Hoon’s daugther). “Nico sang on ‘Love has a way’ for my Abandon Jalopy record… she sounded great!!” Brad wrote on his facebook page.

Gentlemen behold…I give you…The Meek.

Auto Date Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

The Meek was a band Glen Graham (of Blind Melon) formed in 2005 with Stuart Cole (of The Squirrel Nut Zippers) and Joe Tullos. The band played a few gigs in the Chapel Hill, NC area and made an EP named “Relax, it’s later than you think…” that came out in October 2006. That was during the Blind Melon reunion with Travis Warren so The Meek didn’t actually go further.

During these days, Glen made some nice videos for 4 of their songs: ‘All Mine’, ‘My Girl Summer’, ‘Nein Eight’ and ‘I’m A Quasar’ and Joe made an alternate video for ‘All Mine’. I just got the permission from these three gentlemen to upload them on so take a look and enjoy…

Thank you to Joe Tullos, Glen Graham and Stuart Cole for the permission.
