The Incurables - Down #Flyah Submission


Founded in Westland, MI by lifelong friends that met in kindergarten, Ray Lawson (Bass guitar and vocals) and Pat Kelly (Lead guitar and vocals), the band found its heart and soul when they were joined in the mid-eighties by cousin Darrin Lawson (drums and vocals) and Dennis Pepperack (guitar and vocals).
  Truly a band of brothers in every sense, they continue to rock with their original members decades later.
  Growing up listening to bad AM radio, The Incurables managed to find influences from the groups of the sixties British Invasion and psychedelic scene as well as the seventies and eighties sounds coming from New York's CBGB.
  Watching them onstage you can't help but enjoy yourself knowing that they are not just there to perform or do a job but honestly having fun and loving the music. Their energy is infectious and clearly incurable.
 I don’t feel so well is the fourth studio release from Detroit’s own Garage rock/power pop band The Incurables. The album was produced by The Incurables and Tony Hamera at the award winning Tempermill studio in fashionable Ferndale Michigan. 
  Channeling the sounds from the groups of the sixties British Invasion and psychedelic scene as well as the seventies and eighties punk and new wave bands of New York's CBGB’s “I don’t feel so well” is packed with the upbeat harmonic high energy sound in which The Incurables are widely Known for. 
  The first single “Down” is a straight forward rocker done in the true Garage Rock fashion and is being well received on stations across the nation. A video for “Down” has been released and is available for viewing on The Incurables YouTube channel.
  The track “Detroit Steel” was chosen as one of the top winning rock anthem songs by the Detroit’s Motor City Muscle Music Festival, a video is also available for viewing on the bands YouTube channel. The Incurables are also working on a new video for their psycho rocker “Eloise” which was influenced by the time the band spent in the now defuncted Eloise psychiatric hospital .
   Whether you’re jamming to their CD or catching them onstage you can't help but enjoy yourself knowing that they are not just there to perform or do a job but honestly having fun and loving the music. Their energy is infectious and clearly incurable.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
