Black Tarantula: Deze Kant Boven
Black Tarantula. Great name for a band and so apropos. What we have here are four arachnids. These guys have 32 arms and legs.

This Dutch surf band proves there's more to surf than the blue waters of Southern California. Black Tarantula bares their fangs, wraps their mighty appendages around their instruments and lets it fly with seven tracks of bodacious instrumental surf rock. No B sides on Deze Kant Boven. None.

Eric Clapton & Friends: JJ Cale
Appreciation Album

Album Available JULY 29, 2014 On Clapton's Bushbranch Records/Surfdog Records.

Eric Clapton has often stated that JJ Cale is one of the single most important figures in rock history, a sentiment echoed by many of his fellow musicians. Cale's influence on Clapton was profound, and his influence on many more of today's artists cannot be overstated. To honor JJ's legacy, a year after his passing, Clapton gathered a group of like-minded friends and musicians for Eric Clapton & Friends: The Breeze, An Appreciation of JJ Cale scheduled to be released July 29, 2014. With performances by Clapton, Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Derek Trucks and Don White, the album features 16 beloved JJ Cale songs and is named for the 1972 single "Call Me The Breeze."

"I would like people to tap into what JJ Cale did - that's the point. I'm just the messenger; I've always felt that that's my job. I try to interpret things so that the public at large, or at least the people who listen to what I do, will become intrigued about where I got it from," said Clapton.

Be Here Anymore" Official Video

New Album "The Black Market" Available Now

"Our new video for the song 'I Don't Want To Be Here Anymore' encompasses the overwhelming noise of our world and the fatigue we all feel as its witness. This song is a starting point, not an ending point. It's about the wake-up calls in life that let us know something needs to change." - Rise Against

This dude cracks me up! He's not only uniquely entertaining, he's way, way out there in the dog eat dog world of music.

And a FREE download of AutobiograMe demonstrates just how far out there he is. Yes, FREE, as in zero dollars and zero cents. I think I got caught in two washes, three rinses and at least nine spin cycles all while cleaning up on this free album.
