    In 1982 I walked into a music store in Kalispell Montana and heard his hit Someday Some Way...  I was hooked.  From that day forward, the cassette I purchased before going to Bible camp, was in every car I ever owned until 2015.  I mailed the cassette to my friend who had gotten out of drug treatment.  We listened to that cassette so many times in my car during high school.  The cassette arrived in his mailbox, SMASHED...   I was crushed.

    It was my indeed pleasure to interview, Marshall Crenshaw.  My hero.

     

    Marshall Howard Crenshaw (born November 11, 1953) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and guitarist best known for hit songs such as "Someday, Someway," a US Top 40 hit in 1982, "Cynical Girl," and "Whenever You're on My Mind." He is also the co-author of one of the biggest radio hits of the ‘90s, the Gin Blossoms, "Til I Hear It From You." His music has roots in classic soul music and Buddy Holly, to whom Crenshaw was often compared in the early days of his career, and whom he portrayed in the 1987 film La Bamba.

    Born in Michigan, Crenshaw performed in the musical Beatlemania before releasing his self-titled album in 1982. Crenshaw could not replicate the commercial success of Marshall Crenshaw and follow-up Field Day (1983) with later albums. Crenshaw has also contributed songs to other artists, writing singles for Kirsty MacColl and the Gin Blossoms. A quote from Trouser Press summed up Marshall Crenshaw's early career: "Although he was seen as a latter-day Buddy Holly at the outset, he soon proved too talented and original to be anyone but himself."[

     

    Marshall Crenshaw on Marshall Crenshaw

    — “One of the fundamental things about the project was that I set out

    to not make an album,” Marshall Crenshaw notes. “So I did this project, and now at the

    end of it, there’s this album, for the album fans!….”

    The celebrated singer-songwriter-guitarist-producer is discussing #392: The EP

    Collection, his new CD on the Red River Entertainment label. The 14-track set collects a

    dozen standout tracks drawn from the innovative series of six 10” vinyl EPs that

    Crenshaw released between 2013 and 2015, plus a pair of never-before-heard rarities

    chosen especially for this collection.

    The EP series was the product of Crenshaw’s decision to break away from the standard

    album/tour cycle by recording and releasing a steady stream of new music over an

    extended period. The endeavor proved wildly popular with his fans, and brought in lots of

    “I really did love the EP project, and I’m kind of sad that it’s over,” Crenshaw comments.

    “I was looking for a different way of working that would keep me motivated; it was cool,

    because it had a sense of urgency; there was always something that had just come out

    and always something that was on the way. It was an inspiring way to work.”

    #392: The EP Collection’s twelve studio recordings encompass six new Crenshaw

    originals and six cover songs. The former group includes the bittersweet and beautiful

    “Grab the Next Train,” the surging and howling “Move Now,” and the hypnotic and

    atmospheric “Driving and Dreaming”, while the cover numbers include a reverent remake

    of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David/Carpenters chestnut “Close to You,” James McMurtry’s

    “Right Here Now,” longtime Crenshaw favorite Bobby Fuller’s classic “Never to Be

    Forgotten” and vintage numbers by the Easybeats, the Move and the Lovin

    The TInklers - Music’s Outsiders and Shimmy Disc Legends!!!

    The TInklers - Music’s Outsiders and Shimmy Disc Legends!!!

    The Tinklers are a band from Baltimore who have been together since 1979. The group consists of Charles Brohawn and Chris Mason, both of whom sing, play guitar, and percussion instruments of varying degrees of quality (including cigar boxes, spoons, and other types of junk). Both members are also actively engaged in creating art in other mediums including visual art and books. Their music can be characterized as outsider music due to its lack of traditional musical skills and abilities including proficiency at their instruments and the ability to sing in tune. Their performance method and practice eschews conventional standards of skills thought necessary for making music and can be historically placed with other acts such as Jad Fair and Half Japanese, Daniel Johnston, and many more obscure musicians.

    While the band's roots are in the mid-70s Baltimore art scene, they did not release a proper record until 1990 when the band caught the attention of legendary producer Kramer. They were promptly signed to Kramer's record label Shimmy Disc and released their first LP, Casserole. The band would release two more LPs on Shimmy Disc - Saplings and Crash - all of which contain similar material.

    While The Tinklers have not disbanded, since 1993 the band has released only one full-length album, Slowpoke, and made a few other compilation appearances. Live performances are infrequent.

    Outside of The Tinklers, Brohawn also released a CD with Asa Osborne of Lungfish under the name Tear Jerks on Secret Eye Records.
