Off the Grid – Illegal in the United States of America?

Posted in Fishing Reports, Key West News, Pirates | No Comments »

offthegrid

Think you are still free to make choices in your life?  Do you think the government will allow you to live independent of their utility monopolies?  If you think so, try opting for renewable non-grid tied power and utilize environmentally friendly composting toilets and your own self-sufficient water supply.  Today, those life choices could land you in jail if you live in South Florida.  Take the case of Robin Speronis.

Robin Speronis has lived off the grid, independent of the city’s water and electric system.  A Florida court ruled this off-the-grid living illegal last week and has given Robin until March to connect her home to a municipal water line or face possible eviction.  Further, officials in the city of Cape Coral have justified this by deeming Robin’s home “unsanitary,” citing the International Property Maintenance Code.  First of all, since when did we begin to locally recognize “international codes?”  Where in the US Constitution does it provide for international jurisdiction over local codes?  Ironically, this “international” code mandates that homes be connected to an electricity grid and a running water source, even though most of the world lives without reliable electricity and municipal water and sewer.  Further, the code is outdated and obsolete because it was written without consideration to both old and new technologies that relegate the need for grid tied power and municipal water as unnecessary and expensive; especially, in locations where it simply isn’t feasible to have grid tied utilities. Nonetheless, Speronis’ home does in fact have power and water through far cheaper and more environmentally friendly means — solar panels and rainwater, but that reality is ignored by the local government.

All too often now it has become blatantly clear that our governments will stop at nothing to control every aspect of your life and demand by force of law that you are dependent upon the system.  Why dependent?  Simple, because dependent people can be controlled.  Nothing screams of totalitarism more than irrational government demands to conform to nonsensical and inefficient systems when better options that may suit an individual are available.  Today, living off the grid allows one to become in a large part independent of the government and as such, has now been targeted as criminal behavior.  Of course governments are not going to directly say this.  Instead, you see governments using the tact such as Cape Coral citing “sanitary” reasons even though they presented no conclusive evidence that Robin’s lifestyle presented any type of public health threat.  Sure, it was not the typical urban setup for a dwelling, but then, when was it demanded by law that everyone conformed to outdated modes of existence?  In fact, how is locally sourcing water from renewable sources and incinerating or biodegrading human waste “more” unsanitary than the city’s own activities?  Let’s be honest, providing filtered sewage mixed with a cocktail of harmful chemicals through debris and corrosion filled pipes as “clean” drinking water isn’t my idea of sanitary.  Further, pumping raw sewage into open bodies of water and burning millions of tons of fossil fuels isn’t exactly sanitary either.

When viewed in its entirety, it appears that the government is simply mad because someone found a way to do things better and without the need of their “services.”  Instead of adapting and reforming their code to catch up with technology, the uber bureaucrats with clearly limited mental faculties and stunted emotional development decided it was easier and or better to just prosecute Robin as a criminal.  How scary is it that in today’s society common sense, logic, and reason are excommunicated by bureaucrats in favor of mindless adherence to ineffective, dated, and or obsolete codes and regulations that were allegedly designed to help not hurt the public?  Instead of good judgment and rational logic, the go-to tools of bureaucrats are brutal police enforcement and prosecution of anyone that dares to try and live independent of their noxious edicts.  As you have witnessed and will witness going forward, this is a recipe for a national collapse.  No person, business, or state can function under such bureaucratic idiocy and harassment.  The freedom of people and the ability of businesses to operate productively are inversely proportional to the size of the bureaucracy.  The United States has hit the point where intrepid trend setters, inventors, pioneers, industrialists, and builders are no longer able to lead this nation forward, but instead, unaccomplished and dimwitted individuals with titles such as inspector, social worker, tax agent, appointee, consultant, and compliance officer are leading this nation into ruin.  I don’t know how much longer the US can continue the allusion of a functional nation, but as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, this system and nation will collapse under its own bureaucratic weight and feel good hubris.  I hope you are prepared.

MP3 Leak of the Week: John Brown’s Body

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | No Comments »

Courtesy of Easy Star Records, John Brown’s Body will release Kings and Queens In Dub, an all dub version of their 2013 release of Kings and Queens, on April 7th, 2015. This week only, we’re giving away “Worldwide Dub” from the new album mixed by Dubmatix

You can download John Brown’s Body’s new single “Worldwide Dub”, for FREE, on our home page under the MP3 Leak of the Week on the right hand column! This Download will only be available until Saturday April 5th, 2015.

John Brown’s Body – “Worldwide Dub”
JBB
“Worldwide Dub” Background:
On April 16th, 2013, John Brown’s Body released Kings and Queens, a 12 track album via Easy Star Records that was met with very high praise. Now, almost 2 years to the date of it’s release, JBB will release Kings and Queens In Dub as the group has dub versions of every song from Kings And Queens, from a variety of producers from both inside the group out. The line-up of Dub Producers for Kings And Queens In Dub include Dubmatix, Dub Fader (of 10 Ft. Ganja Plant), Ticklah, Dennis Bovell (UK Dub Legend), Yesking (from the UK), Lord Echo (aka Mike Fabulous, guitarist of The Black Seeds), Michael Goldwasser (Easy Star All-Stars), former band member Nate ‘Silas’ Ricardson and Jay Spaker.

The overall project was mainly overseen by JBB’s hornsman Drew Sayers, working with Easy Star’s Eric Smith Lem Oppenheimer, with input from the rest of the band. Most of the tracks were dubbed over the past half year.

Here’s what Drew Sayers had to say about the new album: “The band has long wanted to do a project like this – reinterpret an entire album into dub versions. Kings And Queens seemed like a perfect fit musically, and we were fortunate enough to get some of the most legendary and inspiring producers in the game to be involved. I think this album encapsulates who we are as a group: our foundation is firmly rooted in the classics and we sought inspiration from albums like Gregory Isaac’s ‘Slum In Dub’ and Aswad’s “New Chapter of Dub”. But we never look in only one direction and I think what you will hear in this album is a devotion to originality and independence.”

Go grab “Worldwide Dub” for FREE, this week only, on the homepage of The Pier and pick up Kings and Queens In Dub on April 7th, 2015. You can pre-order the new album on iTunes by clicking HERE!

John Brown’s Body Background:

Several JBB albums have received international critical acclaim, and they have toured the globe with the likes of Dave Matthews Band, Further, STS9, J5 and fellow Easy Star Records alum The Black Seeds. JBB is known to fans around the world for their high octane live shows and progressive-reggae sound, dubbed as “Future Roots”— which features a unique blend of reggae rhythms, head-bobbing bass lines, horn-driven funk and ska, with a splash of dub.

John Brown’s Body has a handful of major tour dates coming up, including an appearance at California Roots Festival in Monterey, CA, as well as a record release show at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY, which will also include a DJ set from Ticklah.

Jurassic 5’s Record Store Day Release

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | No Comments »

If you’re a true music fan than you know that Record Store Day is a time where you get out of the house and head down to the Record Store and buy something tangible. Hip-Hop collective, Jurassic 5 will contribute to Record Store Day with a re-release of their album Quality Control on 4 LPs this April 18th, 2015.

Did I mention that the LP re-release will include Deluxe “Wood Box” packaging? The packaging is best described in their press release as “a quadruple vinyl release housed in an outer wood box laser-etched with the iconic “J5″ logo on the front.” Split up among the 4 LPs will be 2 vocal and 2 instrumental paired with an in-depth 24-page booklet that includes rare photos courtesy of photographer B+, liner notes by author Brian Coleman, and input from all six members of the group. It doesn’t end there as each vinyl will be housed in a European-style jacket with never-before-seen artwork.
J5_Vinyl
Available now is a two-song 7-inch, with “Quality Control” on side A and “Jurass Finish First” on side B. The 45 pressing is black vinyl, with a 7-inch sized artwork replication of the original “Quality Control” single jacket. You can pick this album up on Get On Down by clicking HERE!

Since 1998, Jurassic 5 has made their underground mark on the hip-hop scene with the release of their first EP, followed by their debut album in 2000 with Quality Control. Since then, the group would release 2 more albums until breaking up in 2007 following the release of Feedback.

In 2013, the group’s six original members, Akil, Zaakir, Marc 7, DJ Nu-Mark, Chali 2na, and Cut Chemist, reunited for Coachella, and then embarked on a yearlong string of sold-out concerts and festivals in Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Formed in 1994, the group kept momentum going into 2014 celebrating 20-Years with their Word of Mouth Reunion Tour that saw the group sharing the road and stage alongside Dialted Peoples, Beat Junkies and MC Supernatural.

J5’s Vocalist Chali 2na has collaborated on songs with Long Beach Dub All-stars, Slightly Stoopid with ties to the reggae-rock community using his vocals as a smooth bridge between reggae hip hop. While there are no current plans for a new album, J5’s renaissance continues with the release of a full-length documentary feature later this year. Below, you’ll find their announced tour dates for Australia, US, Japan and Europe.

Fans that attend any of the group’s tour dates prior to Record Store Day, April 18, will be able to pre-order an autographed VIP edition of the box set, which they will see a sample of on-site.

The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | No Comments »

Spring is in the air and the festivals are starting to pick back up. This edition of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator found plenty of reggae shows and festivals to keep you busy over the next three days including Bad Religion, Fortunate Youth, New Kingston, True Press, The Steppas, and many more.

Open House featuring Face to FaceIt’s officially spring and that means it’s time to head up the mountains for some late-season skiing and snowboarding before the snow is all gone. And if you need even more reason to hit the slopes, there are numerous shows to catch in the higher elevations as well.

Kicking off the weekend tonight is Iration as they close up the Bud Light HI-FI Concert Series at Snowmass Mountain. Iration then heads over to Telluride Ski Resort for the Mountain Town Get Down. Take the drive up the mountain on Saturday for a FREE show with Iration, The Expanders and Morning Fatty at the Heritage Plaza Mountain Village. Those that stay until Sunday can watch some under-dressed locals freeze in the Bikini Slalom and then fill up with the DJ and Luau at Gorrono Ranch.

The Empire OPEN HOUSE atop Mont Saint-Bruno takes place this Saturday in Quebec, Canada. This FREE event is presented by Monster Energy in collaboration with Volcom and supported by DVS Snowboarding, CAPiTA SNOWBOARDING, Union Binding Company, and Coal Headwear…these big name sponsors bring along a big name band with Face to Face performing after Punchline13 and DJ Vinyl Ritchie. In between the music, attendees will find jam contests, snowboarding demos, and free lift access!

But the big event this weekend is Bud Light Reggaefest at Mount Snow in West Dover, Vermont. The 3-day event features live performances Friday and Saturday night in the Snow Barn and outdoor parties in the Main Base Area Saturday and Sunday afternoons. This year’s lineup features Easy Star All-Stars playing Saturday night, with Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad and Inner Circle playing FREE shows during the afternoon parties on Saturday and Sunday. In addition to all the great reggae music, attendees can also grab a nice dinner at 1900 Burger for the Beer Pairing Dinner Series or catch the Sink or Skim annual Pond Skimming competition. But those brave enough will participate in Mount Snow’s signature event, The Duct Tape Derby. Competitors will race down the slope in custom-built crafts made from only cardboard, duct tape, zip ties, and paint for the titles of best slider, most creative, best kids only sled, and judges choice.

Remember to come by here every single Friday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!

Gov’t Mule’s ‘Dub Side of the Mule’

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | No Comments »

Guitar God, Warren Haynes inspires many with his ability to perform polished jams from any brand of Rock n’Roll, and an incomparable roster of legends he has collaborated alongside. Now his band Gov’t Mule has announced two new releases scheduled for April, including Dub Side Of The Mule, an archived set featuring Toots Hibbert!

dubsideofthemule

After playing together for 20 years, the group of Veteran Rock musicians known as Gov’t Mule have never played the same show twice. With a deep catalog of originals and the ability to draw countless cuts from other band’s beloved repertoire, the Gov’t Mule experience can change night to night. Often times during shows musicians will sit-in on a couple tracks or the band may even play a themed set a with a special guest.

One experience of note was created back in 2006. For a New Years Eve show in New York City at the infamous Beacon Theatre, Gov’t Mule treated fans to a performance that featured three-plus hours of music. Played that night was several sets of Mule standards and covers, including a 1-hour reggae set featuring Toots Hibbert, the legendary founder of Toots The Maytals, as well as a finale with special appearances by Gregg Allman Friends and John Popper of Blues Traveler. As many are, the show was recorded and canned. But now, all 34 tracks have been remixed and mastered!

Following December’s release of Dark Side of the Mule, and the recent release of Sco-Mule, the group’s live collaboration with guitarist John Scofield and just preceding the release of Stoned Side of the Mule, a Gov’t Mule set of Rolling Stones covers, this next addition to the bands 20th anniversary archival series focuses on the the night’s unique pairing, spotlighting the band’s work with reggae, aptly titled Dub Side of the Mule.

Playing through the mid-night hour, Warren and Toots performed a total of 10 songs together. Included are many of Toots’ revered songs including “Pressure Drop,” “54-46 Was My Number,” “Reggae Got Soul,” and the Easy Star All-Stars’ arrangement of Radiohead’s “Let Down.” Gov’t Mule book-ends the set with reggae versions of 2 of their own tracks. The set opens with “I’m A Ram”, a track that was originally released as part of Gov’t Mules Mighty High, a 2007 album that features reggae and dub versions of Mule classics. Closing the set is a reggae rendition of Warrens adored, “Soulshine.”

Scheduled to release on April 7th via Warren Haynes’ Evil Teen Records Dub Side of the Mule will be available in three formats. A standard edition CD of the show’s entire second set with Toots – A standard edition vinyl made of two 180-gram vinyl’s of the Toots set with a download code for the digital files – and a deluxe edition including 3 CDs of the entire 3-hour performance, plus a DVD of only the entire reggae set with Toots. Available for pre-order until April 6, 2015 at 11:59PM EST, with the Purchase of any Dub Side of the Mule media item, fans can add a Dub Side printed change tray and/or rolling papers for only $5 and a Dub Side T-Shirt for just $15!

Beer Show! Key West Beer Tales

BEER SHOW

 photo IMG_0791_zpseb9fdda4.jpg


Key West Beer Tales – The Sum Of All Beers


We’ve been doing both a beer show podcast and a music show podcast since last summer and we’ve had a blast doing them! We’ve had the beer show available on the Spreaker site for a while. These are shows that have already aired. We’re also picking up new stations!

The beer show is very unique and frankly, I see it as far superior to anything else out there as far as a beer podcast goes.

In most cases when a consumer is investigating a beer of any sort, they’ll look on line naturally. There are a good deal of web sites that rate beer. Rate Beer, Beer Advocate, Yelp, Untapped, Beer-Universe, Beer Of The Month Club, and there are most likely others that I don’t know about. Of course, this shows what a healthy state of interest beer is enjoying today.

Ours is different however. To start with the place we get our information on the beers is from the brewery itself. Now and then a brewery has a website that has little or no information on a beer. When this would happen I looked at these sites to see if they had any information. Many times in doing this, with one particular beer I found alcohol content (ABV – alcohol by volume) to be 3.7 on one site, 4.2 on another, and 5.0 on another. Obviously, none of these could be trusted, because it appeared that they were pulling numbers out of a hat. So, with us, if it’s not from the brewery, we don’t state it without a disclaimer that it’s an educated guess. We don’t arbitrarily stick a number that we pulled out of the air. Draft beer can vary. If the brewery lists a beer as 5.0 on line, a keg may arrive which has a sticker on it showing 5.2. It will never be more than .2 over/under, and we’ll state the particular keg’s brewery rating. Again, it’s the rating from the brewery that we go by.

Our panel is unique and covers a wide range, giving the listener a good foundation to work from. Our standard panel is five, although sometimes one or more may have other commitments and can’t make the show.

However, here’s our roster and how we all fit in. I’ll start with myself and name the crew in the order that we sit at the show.

Key West Chris: I’m the old school beer guy. I started drinking quality beer when I was eighteen (legal age back then) and became intrigued with it from the beginning. I bought the book The World Guide To Beer by English author and patron saint of  beer, Michael Jackson just after it was was first released and proceeded to buy over forty books on beer. The beer in my refrigerator today, is never the same beer that is there tomorrow, nor has it been my whole adult life.There is no beer that is my favorite, or favorite style. Every beer has it’s place.

Dani Hoy: Dani is new (but getting more and more a veteran) to quality beer and therefore a vital part of the show. She’ll often ask questions that I, or some of the other crew, would never cross our minds. Everyone is new to beer at one point or another. We all were. So it’s very important to address that side of things and cultivate those with new interests. Dani is the gateway for that side of the show! Additionally, Dani is a marvelous chef in the kitchen!

Cowboy Mark Straiton: Mark is a fascinating individual who’s traveled the world and happened to be a major beer enthusiastic while doing so. He’s also right on the money as to exactly what is trending in the beer world, at this exact minute, as well as when it changes five minutes from now. While I’m the old school beer guy, Mark is the new school beer guy. He’s extremely well versed on beer and funny enough, his and my pallets are quite similar in many circumstances. Mark is also a very well versed bartender and an accomplished chef.

Diamond Dave: Dave is our lighthearted member who keeps us laughing. After all, laughing is essential when drinking beer. Hell, if we were too serious the show would be boring! We all have great senses of humor and Dave is often the catalyst who gets us laughing, of throws gas on the fire, when we already are! Dave is quite knowledgeable on beer as well and has been a major IPA fan for over fifteen years.

Dave Senior: Dave Senior is the owner of The Cork and Stogie, here in Key West where we record the shows. One of the greatest attributes here is having a bar owner on the panel! Dave sees things from a totally different angle than anyone else. Dave sees what people are buying on a day to day basis and orders his beer accordingly. Dave is also an expert on both cigars and wine, which again brings things to the table not found elsewhere.

Key West Beer Tales reviews beers, we don’t rate them. Rating beer is B/S. I recall doing a show where we featured Pilsner Urquell. Now, Pilsner Urquell has always been regarded as one of the finest beers in the world. One of the on line beer websites had it rated by their subscribers, in the seventies out of one hundred. Seriously? What many highly respected beer experts over the years have called Pilsner Urquell as the finest pilsner available, or inthe top three at worst, these people are rating in the seventies? I’d love to see the woodwork they’re crawling out of! Another rating had an opinion of Stella Artois as “tasting like Budweiser”.  did that individual burn their tongue with a blow torch or something? What kind of people do they have rating anyway? 

Those are but two examples that lead me to believe that there was not only a call for our show, but also a need for it as well.

So, we comment on the beer and note what flavor impressions each one of us pick up. Everyone in our group has a very educated pallet. Some may not be routed in beer. Dani’s stems from cooking. Dave Senior’s comes from wine and cigars. Interestingly enough, when anyone expresses a taste, everyone else picks up on it. I can’t say how many times one of our panel says they taste something I did not detect. From that point on, I notice it, however had they not brought it up, I may never have noticed it on my own.

This is a beer show. In being a beer show, it’s different than many other shows in one particular regard. Yes, you’ll get a very good variety of opinions and in puts. Yes, you’ll pick up all sorts of fascinating facts about beer that you never knew. Yes, our stats come from the brewery itself, we don’t invent it on the fly, Yes, our panel is quite diverse which without doubt is our strongest point featuring traditional opinions, the new and trending opinions, new quality beer drinker ‘s questions and opinions, the pub owner’s viewpoint, however we’re different in one other very important aspect and this is a vital aspect  which separates beer drinking from so many other subjects:

We know how to laugh!

 We’re beer lovers, we’re not beer snobs.

We know how to laugh! We know how to have fun! We don’t hold ourselves above anyone and we love to educate those who want to know more and everyone has a blast doing it!  The antithesis of any type off snob. 

So come join us! Be sure to grab a beer before you tune in and have your laughing pants on and pad and pencil ready!

Stick Figure’s Cocoa The Tour Dog

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off

ThePier-Banner-Cocoa-(3)

Cocoa The Tour Dog

The bond between man and dog goes back thousands of years to the first civilizations that domesticated wild dogs for use in hunting and companionship. The same went for Stick Figure’s (Guitarist/Vocalist) Scott Woodruff and his dog Holly; the two were inseparable. With no warning Holly was tragically killed by a vicious coyote, and a sizeable hole was left in Scott’s life that any dog owner knows is next to impossible to fill.

Meanwhile, a 6-month-old Australian Shepherd was found wandering the streets of Central California’s Merced County. With little food, no warmth nor any comfortable place to sleep, and no one to love her, the puppy was taken to a shelter with little chance of survival.

Woodruff knew he wanted that void filled, but did not want to rush into getting a dog. He spent the next few months scouring the Internet for a canine partner at local animal shelters.
DavidNorrisCocoathetourdog3-8-15 (2)
“I looked at hundreds of photos of dogs and read their bio. When I saw Cocoa’s photo, I knew she was the one.” He called the shelter that said she was available.

A few days later, Scott called them again as he was ready to jump in his car and pick up his new companion, but the shelter said she had be transferred and would not release any more information.

Mama Stick Figure convinced Scott to call them back and press for more information. With some hesitation, the shelter told Scott she had been transferred to the SPCA in San Francisco, who in turn told Scott she would not be available for at least a few weeks, and again, no other information.

Calling the SPCA every three days became routine. Three weeks turned into a month and a half before she was finally available for adoption. The poor puppy spent six weeks quarantined with kennel cough and diarrhea. Scott’s persistence landed him atop the long list of possible forever homes and he made the four-hour journey to pick up his new pup.

Everyone at the SPCA thought Scott was crazy but “4 hours to meet a dog I will get to spend the next 15 years with. Is it really that crazy?”

The moment Scott met the dog, formerly known as Joan Leslie, was like a scene from a heart wrenching storybook Hollywood ending. She walked over to Scott and sat down. The two gazed into each-others eyes and realized they were meant for each other. After one look, Scott said she looked like a Cocoa.

Approximately ten people were in line in case Scott decided not to take her. They awed at the happy couple and told Scott how lucky he was. And little did anyone know that Cocoa’s rock star life on the road was about to begin.

Her first tour with Stick Figure happened while supporting Tribal Seeds in 2013. “She had a blast,” Woodruff says. “It was amazing to see how comfortable she was on stage and how she adapted to loud music. The guys in Tribal Seeds really loved her.” Being so well behaved and good mannered, the band decided she would be on every tour from that moment on.
DavidNorrisCocoathetourdog3-8-15 (5)
Since 2013, Cocoa has traveled across the continental United States including ten tours from the West Coast to Florida. She recently traveled as far away from home as Alaska. The only tour she has missed was a brief stint on the Hawaiian Islands with Collie Buddz since Hawai’i has very strict quarantine laws.

Although she loves to tour, like any musician, she revels her time off at home so she can relax, get on a normal schedule, go on hikes, and play with her best friend, a Dalmatian named Patches. The two are extremely excited to see each other each time they are reunited.

“Her personality transcends the music,” Scott explains, “Her laid back chill vibe is a perfect match for Stick Figure.”

Her easygoing attitude came in handy while on tour through Idaho. The band makes frequent stops for gas and provisions and happened to realize Cocoa was nowhere to be found on the bus. Frantically thumbing through receipts and calling past stops, they reached a gas station attendant that simply said, “Yeah, she’s been sitting here all night.”

After almost 24 hours alone, Cocoa didn’t even leave the last stop she saw her boys. She was not even mad at them when they returned. Scott says, “not much phases her.”

They consider Cocoa the fifth member of the band and also recognize she is probably more popular than anyone who holds an instrument. Her sleeping quarters vary from night to night, but she seems to favor sharing a bed with bass player Tommy Suliman and frequently sleeps on her back, each night for hours on end “which is quite odd to wake up to.”

Cocoa enjoys most food, but specifically beef, Slim Jims, and fresh egg or fish oil mixed with her kibble – her favorite treats include cheese, salmon, and blueberries. Even though she appreciates a belly rub or scratch behind the ears, you’ll find a special place in her heart when you find the favorite spot under her neck.

She can be consistently seen holding a stuffed animal, preferably a duck, in her mouth and never rips the animals up; instead her motherly instinct nurtures them and licks them as if they were her very own babies. Cocoa has been known to walk out of stores on a weekly basis without paying for them.
DavidNorrisCocoathetourdog3-8-15 (1)
“She seems to always find one! You’d be surprised how many stores carry stuffed animals.”

In addition to stuffed animals, Cocoa says her favorite thing about tour life is constantly being with her rock star dad. She loves the fact that she never gets put on a leash and is able to travel the country multiple times a year. She also told us her good behavior allows her to ride on planes and hang out at gas stations and restaurants. Cocoa is profoundly proud of the fact that she has only peed on the stage once in her brief career.

Obviously given more freedoms than most dogs her age enjoy, Cocoa does not take it for granted. She has not thought of a solo music career… because she has no thumbs, but wants to give back to the countless dogs that never get the second chance she did.

“Currently, Cocoa and I are in the early stages of her own charity that helps support the rescue and care for other dogs in need,” hinted Scott.

Stick Figure’s favorite thing about Cocoa is her mellow demeanor and the way her personality shines on stage. She seems to get really excited at the end of “Hawai’i Song” but her stage presence depends on the show, the crowd, and her environment.

She looks forward to meeting all of you on the road and accepting your gifts of Slim Jims, blue berries, cheese, or duck stuffed animals. In her brief three-year life, Cocoa the Tour Dog continues to inspire thousands of people each day, garnering fans from each place she puts her paws.

Update from Angelo Moore & Fishbone

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off

The Pier’s own Jeff Pliskin of Raised Fist Propaganda went from NY to CA to connect with Angelo Moore of Fishbone on some upcoming video projects. Read Jeff’s recap of the events that include him staying with Fortunate Youth and following up with Angelo Moore about Gwen Stefani‘s comments in Cosmo Magazine, crediting him as a early fashion influence…

Recently, I flew out to LA to complete a couple of video projects – One of which being the Angelo Moore movie entitled, “Optimistic.”
Angelor_FY_Fishbone
Since I was staying with the Fortunate Youth crew in Gardena, CA I asked Dr. Madd Vibe to drive up and hang for a few as we edited down the rough cut of the short film. Jered Draskovich and Dan Kelly of Fortunate Youth joined as we tweaked the footage from 2011 – some of which involving HR of the legendary Bad Brains. It was the first time in history members of two iconic reggae punk bands appeared on a project together. Fishbone and Bad Brains were undoubtedly an influence on my life as well as the homies I was staying with on the West Coast.

The vibes were good as we pieced it together – Dan the man pacing in the kitchen of the house with his pot of home cooked goodness. As he fed us, Gonzo from Tribal Seeds posse’ stopped by. Angelo munched away as we began talking about the Third Wave of Ska Punk that broke mainstream in the 80’s 90’s.

“Angelino, how do you feel about Gwen Stefani bigging you up in the newest issue of Cosmo Magazine?” I asked.

Angelo was silent for a minute. He scratched the top of his head where his tattooed mohawk was placed. “Let’s move this discussion to the outside, where it’s warmer,” he said. “Jeffro, I know this is a rare thing for you considering New York is an ice tundra right now!” The crew laughed it off.

We moved the discussion to the garage. Pool table and vinyl records graced us as Angelo and I danced to new tracks Dan Kelly was playing us off the new Fortunate Youth record. “You guys are pretty good,” Angelo stated as I took in the 80 degree California weather.

Gonzo, Jered Dan gave me a glance…the type of look that showed respect and appreciation for what was happening.

“Fishbone Bad Brains were pioneers. Amazing performers. They inspired our bands to be ourselves. They play their souls out every time and we have nothing but the utmost respect for those dudes…” – Jered D of Fortunate Youth

All three SoCal band-mates were down for a collab with the punk icon – I was all about setting that up.

I suggested doing a music video of Angelo in his skinhead suspenders walking down the mean streets of Compton with his saxaphone, singing along to a Fortunate Youth song – knocking on random doors in the neighborhood, just to see what would happen, which garnered some laughter.

I asked again how Angelo felt about No Doubts Gwen Stefani and her remarks about being a fashion icon.

Angelo Moore’s response: “Thank you Gwen for being inspired by my freaky stylee’. Let’s get together and make a magical look of fashion that will shock the world! Love, Angelo”

Hopefully the future can bless us with an epic collab in the future; music or fashion wise from Angelo Moore Gwen Stefani.

Coming up for Fishbone, they’ll be spending April and May on the road that will build up for their performance at the California Roots Arts Music Festival over Memorial Day weekend in May. Currently, Fishbone has kicked off their Webisode Series that includes 5 total episodes that is tied to the groups latest 5 track EP Intrinsically Intertwined. The first song, “Unstuck” includes its own music video within an extended 8-minute webisode; which begins to translate the band’s storyline from their conceptual new 5-song recording.

For more information, follow the dates and links below – Stay tuned for more from Jeff Pliskin and the final edit of his upcoming video projects with Angelo Moore!
