The Howling Bones is rock n roll #Flyah


Them Howling Bones New Album Cover- EP Release in November!  
Them Howling Bones
Them Howling Bones are born rock stars with real musical muscle, the kind that are in all too short supply in today’s music scene. They were so destined to find each other and play together, that when they played their first gig, they didn't even realize it was their first gig -- it was that spontaneous.
They hopped on stage at a Los Angeles location that remains undisclosed to this day, to those outside the band’s inner circle -- rock & roll traditionalists that they are, the band insists you had to be there. They dove headfirst into a rendition of the Doors’ “Roadhouse Blues” in a completely impromptu jam session. According to bassist Armando, they “just kept on the blues feel the whole night.”
And though the gig is over, the blues feel certainly is not. Guitarist Mitch cites bluesmen of days gone by -- Albert King, Freddie King, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Paul Butterfield, Duane Allman -- as major influences in his (and the band’s) sound. Mitch Micoley has traveled all the way to LA from the Midwest -- where he claims “there isn’t much going on” -- in search of a more active scene and like-minded band mates who share his goals for “us to move people, write great songs, make the audience dance and go crazy, and know our lyrics and songs.”
Vocalist Pedro Torres is certainly on the same page: “Every night is the best rock & roll night. Broke, finding ways to get by. Being in the streets, meeting people, drinking, playing, getting into trouble and learning to get away with it! Every day just drenched in a little whiskey!” For Armando, answering which rock & roll night is the best ever is “not even fair. This train is moving fast and to remember every landmark would be blurry.”
Ironically, the quietest member is Collin Kleinman, the drummer, yet he provides the band with its aura of mystery. Ask him where he’s from and he’ll likely reply, “The beach.” His goals for Them Howling Bones? “Get pitted, get slotted, then shacked, and spit right out of the barrel. Chya.”
Armando Lopez Jr. is a little more thoughtful about the prospect of the band’s bright future: “To be able to connect with a total stranger with music as a universal language is honestly beautiful. The energy of these ever-building crowds would inspire anyone with a working ticker.”
The current EPK release shows the fast musical talent for songwriting and talent.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…

Alla P. Gakuba - A Person is a Product of Time Place and Circumstances

The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …
