50 Days
Untill The Dally in the Alley

We Have a motor city music mystrey in Culture City

yes for the first time on the website i have a mystrey in all of detroit rock n roll, and not just any rock n roll story, but is was one of the story that will ask you who is this person.

Last week, i went to the Fouth street fair on forth st just of anttonne, just south of Wanye State U. and just two blocks south of the New Center Area on the West Side of town i was there from 6 PM untill Close, the last band finnsh up a 1AM the majord of the bands i saw(The Syrrens, THTX, and the Muldoons) at a New Stage the 4th Street Fair it was Halfway from the street entry 4th street to the deadend that is near I-94 mergeing to the Lodge (M-10) on a park near a small apartment complex and i was call the Artie Jackson stage.

Now when i saw the line-up i was asking myself four stage that was weird because if you ever been tom 4th streets there have been three stage, The Park Stage (near the enter of the fair), the Street Stage (near the dead end of 4th street),and the Garden stage (a nicely size park near the third street brige over I-94).

so when i sot to the stage at about 7PM i read a speacil board that say this stage is deacated to the memory of Artie Jackson, so i was think may be he no longer with us, it was just one of thouse thoguht.

On Monday on this Blog i was asking in this Question wheld memtion the last band of the night the Muldoons:

(From Monday 07-17-06)
"Ouch but i did see one of the best new Band in detroit which is nearing a full year (debut show: Opening up for the White Strips on Oct. 2, 2005) The young Rock n roll band The Muldoons which was awsome as they rock the house at the Artie Jackson Stage. so this year 4th street was good. i did get home at HQ all right not bad for a low key street Festival.

Speaking of which before i get off the 4th street the new stage was deacatie in the memory of Artie Jackson now i did not know him, so it you know who artie jackinson was and what was his import of the 4th street festival please E-mail the Blog sight"

on tuesday, the Muldoon durmmer brian muldoon the dad in the band was asking the same thing in a E-mail:

We Muldoons wondered who Artie Jackson was also.
Maybe you will find out.
Thanks for the nice things said about us!
I like to read your blog.

well thank you very much brian for the nice words i really like you set at forth street you came a long way from the 1st gig last year, but yes ishear the same question, Who is Arite Jackson what did he have to do with the four street fiar, or forth street in genlar

So if you know Who was Artie Jackson, i think all of Culture City want to know so if you know please E-mail me the Info so all of Culture City want to know as well please E-mail me at this address: it you Know who artie Jackson was all of detroit would like to know

You Can also used the E-mail: for any news on upcoming gig, any new stuff on record, and big newstips all of Detroit want to know, also as we get closer to the Dally in the Alley if you are playing any of the Four Stages i want to know weeks before the Officail line-up is released a Month before the Dally

Once Aging the E-mail address fro It Came from Culture City is

On to other News i got the NME yesterday (with Lilly Allen on the Cover)and on page six Jack White told about his futher Plans, The Ex-Detroit told the Maginzine at the the UK Wireless Festival about a month ago that he and Bandmate and Friend Brendan Benson have begin work Album No. 2 by the Racounteurs.

"Every time we get together we play and write. As soon as we get a chance we're going to make another record. We've been talking about where rather than when. We've got some songs ready to go and we want to get recording."

So what do this mean for the White Strips and the question almost everone now and again What about Meg?, What About Meg?

Speaking of which How about Martin Bandyke, if you remember Bandyke was let go back in Nov. which was the begining of the conserveraite program Changes at WDET, you know dumping Music of NPR stuff, now a lot of people who i will not name have told me that he was geting stall, he was boring, he dont play good music, and other things he did land a new job a commerical Station WQKL-FM (107.1) he began on Jan. 30 and in the New Number in the Arbitron Spring book (April to June) it show he still popualr

that a look the Number in the 25 to 54 Demo (you know the Money Demo)
Morning Numbers Before Martin Bandyke Came - 2.3 (winter Book[jan. to March])
Morning Numbers After Martin Bandyke Came - 5.7 (Fall Book[april to June])

The Station Numbers overall in the 25 to 54 demo
Winter Book - 3.0
Fall Book - 7.3

almost double the number so this mean Martin Bandyke is still rellavan in the Detroit area despide the Fact that WQKL-FM (107.1) singal coudle reach Western Wayne County and on a good clear day far east as Southfield Road, but you can hear the station at

Now the big question what is the numbers in at WDET-FM for the Spring Book will proable know in a few weeks.

in live and local gig news the surviving original members of the legendary hip-hop collective will go out on tour, they will do gig San Diego Street Scene(Aug. 4), Rock the Bells in San Bernardino, CA (Aug. 5), and the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans(oct. 28).

yes for the Wu-nation in Detroit they will do a detroit gig at the Wu-bulous Chene Park Near the Detroit River on this WU Date Aguest 13.

also coming back to the area is the awsome two pecie band the Mates Of State but unlike there last gig at the Stick but you have to I-94 or I-96 to ann Arbor becae they will play there gig at the Blind Pig with Guest Starlight Mints on Sunday, September 17, Now ticket will go on sale this Saturday at 10 AM

and i should let you know i was given a flier last night to let you know about a show that is happend next tuesday at the Club Bart in Fashable Frendale, the very pretty keyboardest of Troy Gregory And The Stepsisters, Mary Alice is doing some sort of shadow puppet show with music made by the her it all going down at Club bart this tuesday the 25th the show begin at 10PM it 21 and over and Sey Lui and Controller will opend the show, ands if you want to know club bart is located at 22726 Woodward Ave. near nin Mile road in Ferndale, the phone no. is 248-548-9256 no web sight but they do have a my space page at

and also at culb bart the very next day The Banana Convention

It look like the hard core rap fans will enter Wu-Tang clan one aging
It look like Arcade Fire have found them self a produced for the Follow up to there smash Debut "Funeral" guess who they heir: The Arcade Fire Themself, here what lead Singer Win bulter told in a post on there web sight.

"After trying to decide if we should work with any producers we kind of realized that we already know how we want things to sound so we should just run after that sound as far as we can and not rely on someone else to guide the good ship arcade least for now,"

"We have been producing the record ourselves and working 2 great engineers Scott Colburn (who recorded the Animal Collective's Feels record and the Sun city girls among many other things) who was assisted by our monitor engineer from tour James Ogilvie, and Marcus Dravs (who recorded Homogenic and worked with brian eno and James among many others) and his assistant Francois Chevalier. They have been kind of trading off in 2 or 3 week shifts."

there recording the album in a church that they purchased near Montreal and converted into a studio. Butler reports that they recently finished recording the string section of the record with Sarah Neufeld and Final Fantasy's Owen Pallett over an intense three-day session where they threw around ideas for orchestration. Pallett is now touring in Europe, but is trading midi files with Butler's wife, and fellow band member, Regine Chassagne to try and get three songs arranged by late August.

Butler also wrote that he and his wife plan "to sneak away somewhere closer to the ocean for a week or so that we can record some vocals...a lot of the songs remind me of being near the ocean at night time."

but there not in a rush to finish the alubm and countinued the momentum from "Funeral"

"This will be the last update for a while because there is still much work to be done, and a long way to go before things are finished, and I don't want to be a tease,"

Also in the stedio is fellow canadin band Hot, Hot Heat, According to frontman Steve Bays, the Band have tweaked their sound for their new release. This time, listeners can look forward to a grittier and more aggressive sound than the light-hearted and poppy hooks found on Elevator or Make Up The Breakdown.

More than half of the new music was written on the road (a first for HHH) and Bays notes the influence of countless different locales. This is also the first record written with Luke Paquin, the guitarist who replaced Dante DeCaro after the recording of Elevator in 2004.

"The first record was more of this new wave kind of disco thing, whereas this record is more alive. It's meant to be played live, big epic rock songs," said Bays. "We just started to think that our strength is in the songs, more than anything else, and in the live shows. So we just kind of combined songs that all four us agreed that we liked, combined with the kind of feeling that would translate well live. And we just recorded it really quick. I don't think anything else really mattered."

The Album is produce by Co-produced by Butch Walker (Pink, Avril Lavigne, the Donnas) and the band, engineered by Stuart Sikes (White Stripes, Cat Power, Jets To Brazil) and mixed by Rich Costey (Muse, Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand), The CD will be out in September on Sire

"Walking out before a movie's over is pretty unprofessional," he wrote. "I don't come down to your job and slap the taste out of your mouth for coming up with a line like '"Shark Tale" Is a Halibut Good Time'; so don't f@*k with my stuff WHILE IT'S STILL SCREENING."
