During the late 1970's Manchester, England was a hotbed of musical activity. One of the bands that burst forth from that scene was Joy Division. They were not together very long. Joy Division ended when Ian Curtis, their lead singer, took his own life as the band was preparing to embark on their first tour of the United States. A tour that never happened.
Embracing a rockabilly sound with punk rock flair, the Loveless are an adventurous band quickly making a name for themselves in Dayton and beyond. Bret Cottongim, Tommy Kirkendell and Justin Barbarino visited the WYSO studios to share songs from their new EP and talk about upcoming shows.
The Loveless will perform at Blind Bob's on March 29th with Oxymoronatron and Doogie.
Steve Moss started Midnight Ghost Train in memory of a late friend and has revamped and recycled the lineup a few times while staying on the road pretty steadily. Moss spoke with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about life on the road, music as therapy and Midnight Ghost Train's new album, Buffalo (Karate Body Records).
Midnight Ghost Train will perform on Friday, February 22nd at South Park Tavern.
Meg Cavanaugh returns to Kaleidoscope after a year away to catch up with Juliet Fromholt, talk about her new music and, of course, play live in the studio. Cavanaugh has been collaborating in London, England with artist Peter Mader. That new experience has changed the way she produces music while retaining her same sound. Cavanaugh looks forward to releasing new music and playing her latest music live, especially here in the United States.
