New Taint!!!

The neutron bomb makes a comeback.... in my mind!! And, is censuring G-dub a ploy or more fun than impeachung Clinton?

Listen to the explosive Sandy Taint!!!

X- communication?

Strother Martin was right, when in the movie Cool Hand Luke, What we have here is a failure to communicate. Nothing says that more than the lack of inflection or tone of e-mails. How many times has the true meaning of your e-mails been lost by lack of a human facial expression or tone of voice?
That happened this week between myself and The Boss at Alligator Records.

If we mere citizens can have this problem, imagine the phenomenon on a geopolitical level. The Prez can barely make himself understood when ordering a grilled cheese sandwich, then wonders why the people of his country gasp at a statement shifting the oness of the removal of our military presnce in Iraq to "future presidents".

Thoughts anyone?

Tab Benoit on Blueroom

Part one of Tab Benoit's rant concerning Katrina, The Welands, Bush, Louisiana, and maybe some music too.
Check out what he said to Sandy Taint!

Live Longer with Beardo & Spinner

Thought I'd share this e-mail with you folks:
Hi Guys, Al Foders in Orlando, Florida here. I'm 56 years young. I
love Blues music. I've been downloading the show for 8 months now. I put it on my MP3 player and take it to the gym.

I normally workout for 30 to 45 minutes, but since your show is usually 60 minutes, I spend extra time on Saturdays on the cardio machine "Sweatin' To The Blues".

The young, buffed kids around me must wonder what the heck is going on
with this guy "sweatin' like a whore on dollar night" on the elliptical
training machine: his eyes closed, earplugs deeply inserted in his ear
canals, his grey head bobbing up and down in time with the music, his
lips moving as he silently sings along with his favorite tunes. Too
bad...they don't know what they are missing! They get to hear NSync,
Usher, Coldplay and Britanny Spears on the crappy PA system while I hear
the best of the Blues from my friends at Bandana Blues.

You guys keep it up. Thanks to you, I'm going to live longer because of
the extra time spend working out each week.

Next Blues Guitar Slinger

A listener to the show clued me into a contest Guitar Center is having:

Beardo, just wanted to let you know about a cool
contest sponsored by Guitar Center. Go to and click on the guitarmageddon
icon, then click for Flash, then click on Tracks, then
pic and choose whichever type of blues you want, from
list on left of page.

Ok, would-be SRV's, here is your chance! I checked it out and it is a pretty sweet set up, although time is short, so you better get moving!!!

Stinky Lou Debut........

Just thought you'd like to see Stinky Lou, The Goonmat,... and Lord Bernardo who debuted on Beardo & Spinner this week (show#134)

Moving to......


Due to time demands, and who likes them, the weekly upload for Bandana Blues with Beardo & Spinner, and The Blueroom with Sandy Taint will be moving to Sunday evening starting next week.

This means all of you reprobates need to find something else to do Saturday nights.... try going to a live show, fer christsakes! The music is going to all be canned or on the net soon if people don't start supporting live music.

Even I find time to catch a show now and then.... and speaking of shows, the new podcast should be up and running by next weekend. I'm really looking forward to your reaction on this one. Stay tuned here for updates.

BTW, part two of The Northern Blues Podcast is up (check our website), this episode features Chris Beard!!
