The 2008 Culture CIty Festive 50 - Part one - Unfinish business

Well Merry X-mas and Happy Holidays to all you out there
i hope you had a great X-mas i know that i did aldought it was not much
i guess

With 2008 almost over i think it was the perfit time to do the 3rd annuals Culture City Festive 50 for 2008, that is all the band that matter to you in 2008 but before i get to 2008, i have some unfinish Business to take care of.

I was at this time last year i was doing the 2007 version festive 50 until a slow moving distaster happened to this blog site on my end and yes it was a distaster,

as i was doing the 2007 version of the festive 50 my Computer which i do this blog site caught a bad computer Virus and worst my computer was showing sing of slowing down, there was pop up happing almost ever three minutes and it was slowing down a lot with every used, so in a effot to not ruin the computer so much i stop posting on this blog site on New Year Eve in 2007 with what going on New Year Eve.

I Did Not post aging until May 18th almost four and half months later and that though me a big time curve ball it was real tough to get back on track to do the blog site aging and doing on a daily bias was almost a pain in the butt.

I did try a few times to do the warp up to the Festive 50 but could not come up with the wright date, and not only that i took time off aging with some post on and off from Mid-October to late December because of family issued and not only that my dad was in the hospital for about three weeks at the same time i took a tele-communication course class at Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn with the class Completion over two weeks ago.

With the New year here in almost five days as of this writing i decide to fire up the site aging to do the 2008 Culture City Festive 50 but i decide to finish the 2007 Festive 50 and it won't be long it a Top 10 from Ten to One with a recap at the start of the post to the finish.

Hope you enjoy a little bit from last year and this year Festive 50.

The Culture City Interview - Back in spades Frontman Stephen Palmer

During the height of the Detroit gardge scene early in this decade, there was a lot band hoping to be the next big band to come out of detroit, one of thouse bands was back in spade this 4-pieced band was a fan fave during live show with there blues-style of rock.

there was love, even one of there song was Detroit Slums was name little stephen coolest snog in the world on his syndicated underground gardge radio show back in 2004. and then when they reach the heights of popular they went there separt way and Never was hear aging.

So i was kind to hear that the four guys in back in spade was getting back together to do a one off reunion show at Small's in hamtramck tonight[December 20th] the four guys Stephen Palmer[lead vocals],Jackson Smith[Guitars],Nick Bataran[bass] and Joe Leone[Drums] have been doing a lot of project here and there like Palmer begin a part of the "Ghost City" and Nick touring the country and the world as guitar tech for one of culture city fave bands "The Kills"

But there back in town for the holiday and there doing a show and played just as they remember, early this week i talk to front man Stephen Palmer to see what as the band take to the stage for the first time in four years.


ICFCC: It Came From Culture City:
SP: Stephen Palmer

It Came From Culture City: So Stephen Palmer how it going

Stephen Palmer: it's going very well - a bit cold today!
how are you?

ICFCC: i am doing find on this day[Tuesday 12/16], 'Well back in spade a great band in Detroit after the white stripes go mainstream, was a solid band for three years before you guys went your speared ways and now you are back together, first of all how did this reunion happed and why small's

SP:thanks steve! we were given an opportunity to play at smalls by mike mouyanis back in october - everyone felt good about it, so we had a couple rehearsals and we're excited to play on the 20th.

ICFCC: have you patch things up with the other members bacause it has been a long time since you play in the same room together.

SP:yes, it's been about four years, though we're happy at how well things clicked back into place during rehearsals.

ICFCC: did you fell good vibe aging?

SP: yes, it was nice to get in the same room and play together. i hadn't seen nick bataran in over a year and we're all very busy - so, there was definently a good vibe!

ICFCC: so i know you fans have been asking you why did you break up in the first place?

SP: well, we had a good run of about 3 years - we had great times and great shows. we had a bit of an accelerated lifespan due to the intensity levels of the personalities in the band. sometimes conditions like that can result in great creativity and more often, it causes an implosion.

ICFCC: So how did you rebuild the from the Ruble form that implosion?

SP: well, i should mention that we have no long term plans to reform. we were interested in playing this one show to have a good time...though, we're not ruling anything out...

ICFCC: Like a great show this saturday

SP: yes, we're really looking forward to it!

ICFCC: i know you guys for the last few years, but for my readers what have you done since back in spade broke up

SP: i've had a few projects over the years and i'm working on a record now which i'm very happy about.

ICFCC: What kind kind of band where you in? for thouse of us remember

SP: mostly bands in the "joke" or "fake" genre

ICFCC: so what is your new project are you in is it a solo project of a new band

SP: the new project is called "palmer's penthouse" and it's a recording project so far - but i hope to have a band again.

ICFCC: Now you are calling the project a penthouse, now dont tell me or a ladies man or you have a girlfriend

SP: hahaha!!!!! you have an open invitation to palmer's penthouse anytime if you'd like to see for yourself!

ICFCC: OK i will conserder that, hummm!

SP: you should start Culture City's penthouse!

ICFCC: I dont know

SP: just an idea.

ICFCC: steve Palmer OMG....OK

SP: i will consider that last statement the "gotcha" moment of the interview.

ICFCC: Now when back in spade 1st broke out the detroit rock scene was big fule by the stripes and the von bondies the dirtbombs and other and now here we are in 2008 and the scene is back to a reg. scene, are you comfeable with that or do you think the rock Scene have more to offer?

SP: there are still many great bands in detroit and the city definently still has alot of talent to offer

ICFCC: so what band have you been digging to Inside the 313 and out side the 313

SP: i'm a fan of the dead bodies, the go, high strung, zoos of berlin, wildcatting, scarlet oaks and many others but i'm not able to go out and support bands as much as i would like to.

ICFCC: is that because of work or trying to get out

SP:i can't handle the smoke.

ICFCC: i know the bloing smoke suck, Is there a band that nobody have heard before that all of culture city should hear of

SP: you might be asking the wrong person. i listen to talk radio.

ICFCC: There is the internet, for music and you listen to talk radio, Why

SP: i am interested in current events, news and politics. i play music everyday and i guess i'm in my own bubble most of the time.

ICFCC: One more question, the name of band "Back in Spades" where did you get you name in a back year poker game or what?

SP: Yes.

ICFCC: tell my reader the story

SP: i knew we'd be a powerful live band. i consciously wanted to be in a heavier guitar and drum group. so, regarding the name - i liked the notion, but not the literal meaning of a card game, but inevitably, that's what people think.

ICFCC: Well thank you very much for this interview is there any thing that you want to say before saturday show?

SP: i've got blisters on my fingers!

ICFCC: Well thank you very much for the interview have fun on saturday and will talk to you soon

SP: thanks for the interview!

Bobby Darin – A Man In A Hurry

Fridays 2:00 PM

Sir Tim Rice presents the story of actor and musician Bobby Darin, who died 35 years ago on 20 December, 1973.

A multi-talented, versatile performer and composer, Bobby Darin bestrode the music scene from rock 'n' roll, folk and country to big band and the America Popular Songbook.

Never has a performer made so many successful career turns in such a short, brilliant career. Darin was even seen as a serious rival to Frank Sinatra for a short time.

The series will feature many brand new interviews with a host of personalities, including Steve Blauner (Bobby Darin’s manager of many years), Jimmy Scalia (the official Bobby Darin archivist) and Teri Koenig (Darin’s sister-in-law and "valet").

In Dreams: The Roy Orbison Story

Mondays 6:30 PM

To mark the 20th anniversary of Roy Orbison’s death, Mark Lamarr presents a new four part documentary, telling the story of the Grammy-award winning singer/songwriter, guitarist and pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll.

Roy Orbison’s career spanned more than four decades, but his personal life suffered great heartache.

The series includes contributions from David Lynch, Don McLean, Barbara Orbison, Joe Melson (the man credited with creating the Orbison sound and co-writer of Only The Lonely), Bill Dees (who co-wrote Oh Pretty Woman), band member Bob Moore and many more.

This Week - Too Much Too Young

Paul Sexton tells the story of the 2 Tone record label and the band at its centre, The Specials.

In 1979, 2 Tone exploded on to the UK music scene. Led by The Specials, an invasion of ska bands had the whole country dancing. The Specials captured the times perfectly with a series of hit singles and albums that tackled social issues, unemployment and racism.

The 2 Tone label was the brainchild of Jerry Dammers of The Specials, whose plan was to create his own Coventry-based version of Motown Records.

Paul Sexton traces the fortunes of 2 Tone Records, from its early successes to its demise in 1985 and ponders their possible re-union. First broadcast on Radio 2.

Live From Victory From Chicago

Thank You

The Big Board from Culture City

From MSNBC.com

i am doing live local Twitting at

Here Live Video from MSNBC

Watch to watch for Tonight

And with the first poll close
here is a story from today Detroit News
to what to watch for tonight on this historic night

Pundits and pollsters may be trying to take all the fun out of Election Day. So many have predicted a lopsided victory for Sen. Barack Obama over Sen. John McCain that you might wonder why even to bother watching the returns tonight.

The fact is, there is plenty of mystery -- and there is only one poll that counts.

Aim to have the popcorn popped and to be on the couch no later than 7 p.m. Now, a guide of highlights to watch for today:


Setting the table: The networks are not supposed to call a state until all the polls in that state have closed. But there will be lots of raw data online, so you can go on the Web, check the returns and try calling the state yourself.

And they're off: The suspense starts in Indiana. Most polls close at 6 p.m. and others at 7 p.m. Indiana is a ruby red state where Obama has been running closely with McCain. Be wary of results that do not include Gary, a city with a substantial African-American population. If Obama wins it, Indiana could be the canary in the coal mine predicting disaster ahead for McCain.

• Also, at 7 p.m., polls close in Virginia and Georgia, and polls close in most of Florida and New Hampshire.

All eyes will quickly veer to Virginia, which Obama has labored to win. If he succeeds in the former capital of the one-time Confederacy, he will most likely do exceedingly well the rest of the night. Subtracting Virginia from the Republican column would give McCain very few routes to 270 electoral votes.

Orange crush? Florida, a voting experience unto itself. Whoever wins Florida, the fourth-largest state, gets a big leg up on winning the presidency. Again, if McCain loses here, his path narrows. But the race is so close that Florida may not portend much about the rest of the country.

Palate cleansers: At 7:30 p.m., polls close in Ohio and North Carolina. While Ohio is the bigger prize, keep your eyes on North Carolina (where officials have the option of keeping the polls open until 8:30 p.m. if there are problems). North Carolina is a red state that is newly competitive, again thanks to an Obama ground organization. If North Carolina votes for Obama, the map is likely to bleed blue for the rest of the night.

As for Ohio, it is not clear whether the adage still applies that no Republican has won the presidency without carrying Ohio since Abraham Lincoln.

Main course: At 8 p.m., Pennsylvania and Missouri finish voting.

Pennsylvania, of course, is the keystone to McCain's survival strategy: It is the one big blue state where he has staked his claim, in anticipation of losing some smaller red states. If he wins there, it would keep him alive and scramble the picture for Obama. Missouri is another red state where the contest looks close. But it frequently has voting issues that delay the count, so don't expect right away to add this to one column or the other. When you do get results, Missouri is usually with the winner.

The call: Conventional wisdom suggests that if Obama wins, he would do so early, because the polls in so many toss-up states -- Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio and Florida -- close early. Long lines or problems could delay the count. Watch to see how skittish, or not, the networks are about calling the states and the final outcome.

A two-screen night: This is the first presidential election in which the Web will be a major source of live information. This puts even more pressure on the networks to remind viewers of their resources and heft -- and to offer something different. Check out the holograms on CNN. The networks are offering more bells and whistles this year, but they are competing with cable channels and their own Web sites.

A note of caution: If a network calls a state, you might be able to extrapolate something. But if a network does not call a state, don't read too much into it.

Here's what else is at stake in today's election:

• Senate: Voters in 33 states will choose 35 senators, 33 for six-year terms. Special elections are being held in Mississippi and Wyoming, to fill the remaining four years in seats now held by gubernatorial appointees. At stake are 23 seats held by Republicans and 12 by Democrats.

• House: All 435 House seats are up for election. Republicans hold 199 seats, Democrats 235, with one vacancy.

• Governors: Voters in 11 states are electing governors, with tight races in Washington, North Carolina and Indiana. Republicans are trying to chip away at Democrats' 28-22 gubernatorial majority ahead of 2010, when 36 states elect governors.

• Ballot measures: There are 153 measures on ballots in 36 states, including divisive proposals to ban abortion in South Dakota, outlaw affirmative action in Colorado and Nebraska, and ban same-sex marriage in three states, including California -- where thousands of gays and lesbians have wed since a court ruling in May.

It 9 O'Clock

and i hoped you Night go really well
or worst you may be follow by zombie from the grave
with a Vincent Price rap in between a moonwalk


A Gig Gudie Alter and a note from Me

Before i begin, i want to say sorry for the Lack of post over the last few weeks
i been doing other things away from the computer so i have not been doing the sight on a daily bais.

now i will admit the four months at the begin of the yes have knock me off big time
i have posting on and off this year so with only two months left in 2008 i will keep it on the download and hopeful i can rev up for 2009.

and dont worry i will do the 2008 Festive 50 during the Xmas Break after a on and off January break to take care of the office where i do my blog sight

so every things is Kind of under control

Now it would not be a blog sight with out News so if you are going
out you should be reminded the return of Funk night at the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit scheduled for Halloween Night have been cancelled.

It was going to be the 1st all night dance party since the Late May raid by Detroit Police the resulted in almost 130 arrest mostly for loitering in a after hours club
but as any one know this is one of the most pubisced story in Detroit Culture history in the last five years putting next to the Jack vs Jason brawl at the Magic stick and the WDET dumping it music programing.

Now the reason for the cancellation was tickets sale was slow for the event which require membership to the CAID itself[$20 for one year.] and it was going to be for it member only and the people who was caught in the raid back in May was going to get in free with reservations phone in ahead of time.

there was not engought ticket begin sold and not of reservations came in so the whole night was scrub big time, the ticket to the night will be refund of will get a T-shirts.

Now there is some info on the CAID in the Raid, as you know back in September the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office dismiss loitering charges against 116 patrons who was just there.

But the remaining charges against the employees at the CAID will be try one by one but not in the group like the kids who was there that night back in May.

No trail date have been set in that case.

also about the cars that was seized in the raid as you know there was 44 cars towed in the raid, most of them have to paid somewhere between $900 and $1,200 to get there cars back, althought the loitering charges have been dismiss they will not begetting a refunds.

The ACLU is fighting to get the money back and not only they tyring to get the remaining cars back as well, worst in all this one of the cars that was seized was stolen off the impound lot.

in a story in the Detroit Free Press that ran on Oct. 17 one of patrons who car was towed told the freep that his 1996 Chevy Corsica with 130,000 miles was sloten from the Boulevard & Trumbull impound lot when the theft driven through a fence.

the kid have sue the towing company, but according to the article there working on a settlement.

So we have not hear the last of this one on the CAID raid.
