OK, you need to go to www.houstonsoreal.blogspot.com That's Matt Sonzala's blog and he is possibly the best and most legit independent, for the love of music, up to the minute, hip hop and more promoter herre in Houston. He hosts the local hip hop show on KPFT, I believe it's Wednesday nights, always with guests, interviews and new music. One of the few remaining great shows on KPFT since KPFT is so focused on freakin' Amy Goodman and all that horseshit.
Matt's site is great and he definitely takes the time to add to it things that are relevant and entertaining. I highly recommend it for all Houston musicians and for any hip hop lovers anywhere.
As for me, I got the tracks for the Big Robert Smith recordings we did last week and the raw cuts sound really good. Hopefully, we'll get some type of releaseable material out of it. There's a bunch of other tapes in the vault that I'll be tackling after this project, including the Banana Blender material for the box set. By the end of 2005 I hope to have several records coming out and then be able to ship in 2006 around the country under the David Beebe/ Secret Ingredient/ Freedom banner.
I booked a gig for Oct 9th as my first children's music show for my God-daughter Ellie Eikenburg's 2nd birthday party. That should be enough time to develop some good children's songs and learn at least some of them by heart. It's really right around the corner.
OK,yeah, I've been thinking about a no-holds-barred blog with names protected of only the innocent/guilty,implicating only myself. It may have to be an anonymous one since II haven't totally ruled out local politics, I guess. It may give me a little more insight on myself to do it, though. We'll see.
If anybody ever reads this, I currently have another more often updated blog on myspace under David. I will provide the link sometime soon. All of this should be moving to the Fredom website sooner than later, hopefully. See y'all later- David
