Wild Wednesday Morning Shuffle - Big Mouths and No Guts Mix

Be sure to "Like" Ear to the Ground on Facebook!

Thought of the day:  Sean Spicer's comments about Hitler and chemical weapons, might be justifiably dismissed as "poor word choice" (albeit of epic proportions) if it were not for the fact that there are Neo-Nazis working in the White House. Context is important....
Just announced!  Week 3 (out of 5) of the E2TG Sixth Anniversary - residency at The 5 Spot will be:  David Olney  with special guest Sergio Webb!!!  Both will be playing full band sets on Wednesday May 17.  These are early shows that will have you home (or off to another show) early. I am super excited to have both of these legends on the same stage on the same night.

Previously announced:  Week 1 (May 3) - The Mark Robinson Band and Week 2 (May 10) - Jon Latham (Full Band) with special guests.

And we still have two more weeks to announce!  Soon!

Things get wild on Wednesdays... here is a random shuffle taken from a list that includes every single song in my phone's memory.  This one takes us around the world and back again.

"The Stone" by Kent Eugene Goolsby

We begin close to home with East Nashville singer-songwriter Kent Eugene Goolsby and a powerful song from his most excellent "Temper of the Times" album.  

"On My Street" by Hoodoo Gurus

Our world tour moves on to Australian band Hoodoo Gurus and a song from their 1987 album Blow Your Cool!  

"Love, Before" by Kristen Ford

Back home again with another track from Kristen Ford's album Rend and Render. After travelling around a bit, she is currently based out of Nashville - and I hope to see her live more often. 

"(I'll Love You) Till The End of the World" by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

We head back to Australia (who said this world tour made logistical sense?) with  Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' contribution to the soundtrack to Wim Wenders' Until the End of the World which came out in 1991. Great film and an outstanding soundtrack. 

"Penumbra" by Adam Stafford

On to Scotland, and a track from Taser Revelations by Adam Stafford.  This album which came out early last year was Stafford's first in nearly three years.  It was on our "Featured" playlist for a few months. 

"Memories" by The Silos

We move to New York City with a track from The Silos' 2008 album Cuba. Man, I love this song. 

"Marching On" by The Alarm

Off to Wales, and an early track from Welsh rockers The Alarm. This is from the compilation Standards, and was taken from their debut album Declaration.  An earlier version of the song was on the self-titled EP.  The Alarm are still active under original member Mike Peters, and they have a fanatical fan base and host an annual "convention" The Gathering.

"My Name is Love" by Dirty Hollywood

We end our world tour on the West Coast with a track from drummer turned front-man Dirty Hollywood and a track from his EP Killed to Death which came out early last year.  Straight ahead Rock and Roll.  Dig it!
