XTC Legend Colin Moulding Featured In New Video By Prog Duo Days Between Stations


Los Angeles, CA - XTC fans worldwide are buzzing with excitement about the new video by Prog duo Days Between Stations featuring legendary Colin Moulding titled “The Man Who Died Two Times!” The song comes from the band's critically acclaimed second album 'In Extremis'. Planning for the video began last fall. In October, producer Heidi Hornbacher traveled to the UK to film Colin at his studio. In April, the group filmed the rest of the video in Los Angeles in a small theatre. There is also a behind the scenes video that shows a bit of the 'making of' the video as well as some conversation with Colin Moulding, Paul Whitehead, Heidi Hornbacher, and Days Between Stations' Sepand Samzadeh and Oscar Frederico Fuentes Bills.

(It includes conversation with Paul Whitehead, Colin Moulding, director Heidi Hornbacher and the band.)

Says Sepand, “This was our first video, and since we haven’t toured yet, 'The Man Who Died Two Times' is our first visual exposure. To me the song is the critical inflection point within the concept album -that one has to spiritually die to live again. As a group we all decided that this video would be appropriate to introduce the band. It also exposes more of our quirky and dorky side, because the other pieces are deep, long and moody. We did not have a budget for this video, everyone did this out of their goodwill and artistic integrity. There was so much energy and symbiosis and to me it felt like we were all kids again playing a game at recess. I can’t thank Heidi, Erik and Alex enough, not only for their friendship, but for their talent, integrity and inspiration. You took us to a higher realm and made this dream possible. Colin’s youthful energy, charm and boundless creativity rubbed off on us, you are an inspiration and a true gentleman. To Paul Whitehead, we are sorry you had such a terminal role…. but you played it better than Peter Sellers did in his terminal role in 'The Party'. To Billy Sherwood… none of this would have happened without you! This was one of the highlights of my life. Love to all.”

“I was so pleased to be involved in this project. It was collaborative and just kept evolving. To take a concept, develop it, and see it come to life is my favorite thing in the world. I am honored by the trust the band put in me to bring this great song to the visual world.” - Heidi Hornbacher (director and producer)

“For my part, I was pleased to be involved, having been a fan of the band from the beginning. This music has many layers and it was a fun challenge to decipher the various themes and give them visual form. This is my second music video project, the first being "Seasons Will Change" for ASIA Featuring John Payne.” - Erik Nielsen (camera and editing)

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…

New Biography on The Cars Singer/Bassist Benjamin Orr by Vermont Writer Joe Milliken to be Published November 2018!

Bellows Falls, VT – Veteran music journalist Joe Milliken recently announced a publishing deal with the Lanham, Maryland-based publisher Rowman & Littlefield Publishers to produce his first book, a biography about the late Benjamin Orr. Orr was the co-founder, co-lead singer, and bassist for the platinum-selling rock band The Cars. Titled Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars, a release date is set for November 15, 2018.

Often considered the band’s heartthrob, Orr possessed an incredible voice, diverse musical talent and rare stage presence, all balanced by a magnetic, yet enigmatic personality, striking good looks, and a relentless determination to reach rock stardom. Born Benjamin Orzechowski (aka “Benny Eleven Letters”) and raised in the Cleveland suburb of Parma Heights, Orr was, prior to becoming a world-famous rock star with The Cars, a “teen star” as a house band musician for the nationally syndicated television show Upbeat.

A few years later Ben met his musical partner and …
