I can ease your pain. Get you on your feet again...

We haven't done this in quite a while. We used to play the Parkside Sunday
shows fairly regularly before things became sort of "fluid" there. But the
place has been sold. A new regime has been installed and our hope is that
the sun shines there again.

What was so great about these shows (it wasn't the money, that's for sure)
was that it was a relaxed, easy place for a lot of friends who don't do the
bar scene to hear the band and hang out. It's free. The parking is easy.
It's early (daylight!). And it's all ages. Hell, there aren't even any steps

The Buckshots @ Den Bromfiets 27/05/2007
Alright been a while since i wrote a review it seems. But what a better way to start again then with our favorite old time music band: The Buckshots

The Buckshots as usual played  ... continue reading

Phil Spector trial switches to forensics
LOS ANGELES - The Phil Spector murder trial is going "CSI." After five weeks of dramatic personal stories about the music producer and the B-movie actress shot to death in his home, prosecutors are shifting their focus on Tuesday to science and the critical forensic evidence.

There will be discussions of blood spatter, fibers, gunshot residue, DNA and the path a bullet took when it killed actress Lana Clarkson.

A coroner and crime lab technicians are due on the witness stand beginning Tuesday to explain how such evidence can offer insight into what happened at Spector's castle-like mansion on Feb. 3, 2003.
