Happy to share another artist feature, time is hard to come by lately but I couldn’t resist this one. (Sorry to those who have been writing for placement!)

Fred Jeske, a music man who wears many a hat, I have been fortunate enough to get to know a bit over the past few years. We’ve nerded out over some topics, shared some of our art with each other, etc etc. That is one of the beauties of creating is that you get the chance to meet many people you never normally would. So, with this being said, I promised Fred an artist feature and am happy to oblige. He has a lot going on with music and the label, (Rescord), he has been associated with for over 3 decades has just released a 35th anniversary boxset! How rad is that? (And, thanks Fred for the complimentary box.) Anyways, here is what he had to say in his own colorful way… <Thanks for reading>

“Here goes! An in the moment interpretation of… Oh Man Wow!

Oh Man Wow! was released on Halloween. The power prog alternative release encapsulates 35 years of recording from Rescord; a San Francisco and Chicago based label that introduced their journey on Halloween, 1986 with a live show.

Back then, Joe Maydak, Sam Schauer and Fred Jeske had just released their first cassette under the name of The Fabulous Welts. From that point up to present, Rescord has released many cassettes, CDs and a vinyl release. Including bands – 1000 Weeks, AAA Battery and Conduit of Humanity. Oh Man Wow! brings this diverse and eclectic collection full circle, albeit a departure in theme and approach. Oh Man Wow! is also included in the 6-disc 35th Anniversary box set; both available on Bandcamp – https://ohmanwow.bandcamp.com/releases – Oh Man Wow! Is mixed and produced by Joe Maydak and Blinker the Star’s Jordon Zadorozny! Lyrics contain personal stories from Fred and Joe. Bryan Ray from Wicked Fools provides the high powered vocals throughout plus raw and sonic guitar solos. Fred recorded rhythm guitars along with Sam Schauer, original writer. Joe performs all bass tracks with his brand attack and Jerry Pellizzer, Conduit of Humanity drummer, creates a powerful beat to the onslaught. Guest guitars by David Ziegler, Rich and Joy Randall as Rescord kept with the theme of artist inclusion, reminiscent of their current Conduit project.” – Available on Bandcamp, (CD and digital), Apple Music and Spotify.

Happy New Year! 2019…holey moley! This is our first episode for the new year. I had the idea to do a bit of a “year in review” type episode for 2018. I wanted to acknowledge the fact that we had now been doing the Podcast for a year and just give a knod to all the great artists I interviewed or covered in some fashion. I figured this would be a great way to tie up one year and start another. So, as we brainstorm what is next please give this a listen and hear a cool and fun little wrap up of what I thought was a really great year for M-S-G. More guests on the way. Peace and love! And, a big thanks to my Monkey man 😉

Hey friends near…and far. I can’t believe another year is soon to be behind us. So, before that happens I wanted to make sure I squeezed in a few more posts over here at MUSIC-SURVIVAL-GUIDE. It’s been a really cool year for M-S-G and I’ve really enjoyed every part of it. A cool thing that seems to be happening for us is actual word of mouth…remember that? I LOVE IT, and that’s exactly how I came across Dramaglider. Neil Klemz, guitarist for this Chicago based band had contacted me via email as he had heard about MUSIC-SURVIVAL-GUIDE from Fred in AAA Battery which I did a feature on some months back. I freakin’ love getting emails from bands and artists who are interested in being a part of this project. Neil was pretty excited when he reached out and wanted to talk about his bands first record they were about to release. He was nice enough to send me some sounds that were pretty neat so I figured I’d give these cats a bump and share them with you. That’s the best part about music, sharing it with each other! It’s always been a joy for me. And be it that we are in the Season of sharing, here ya go…some music for ya. Check out Dramaglider. Dig in and enjoy. Support indie artists!

M-S-G Episode 4 02:09:18

This is the first of our Episodes so far that is guest free and the first “feature” episode. I dive deep into band, AAA Battery and singer Spookey Ruben. I had a blast doing this go round and it was also a big test for me as I had to make sure it was interesting enough to keep you guys listening to me! Aside from the great music here of course. LISTEN AND SHARE!

Hey out there in Cybertron! It’s been a while since my last post. First, to cut to the chase with my lack of contributing, for the last quarter of the year or so, I…was sick. But, I am happy to say I am now a Cancer survivor!!! Almost all recovered and way ready for 2018.

Second, Happy Freakin’ New Year! Another one in the bag. I wanted to make a final post for 2017 before it ended. I’m breaking my rule of only dropping posts on Wednesdays…every now and then I’ll break them rules 😉 – I hope to post and share more here in 2018 and also have a plan in the making for a possible MUSIC-SURVIVAL-GUIDE Podcast if that can get off the ground…we shall see.

And third, I wanted to share my musiccentric goodies I got for Christmas from my Fam. Pretty good spread, eh? Funny too that I didn’t already have some of this classic stuff in my collection.
