            Wick-It the Instigator

            He’s got a reputation for doing some thoughtfully fresh and mindblowingly original remixes that take him from beyond a standard dub step or mash-up artist to a DJ/producer with skills that have turned heads and caught ears all over the Southeast. In a live setting, he sends people off with his mix of humor, ingenious pop culture samples and beats that can’t be touched. While his roots are firmly planted in hip hop, there is no shortage of heavy electronic bass music at a Wick-it show.

            Radkey

            It wouldn’t be hard to make the argument that rock and roll in its purest form is pretty much a teenage fantasy writ large. Like a blacklight poster sprung to life, the lure of picking up a guitar that will transform your adolescent bedroom into an arena filled with screaming fans and pot smoke is the myth that keeps rock and roll forever young, and it’s a kind of dream narrative that has keeps getting re-told, whether it’s The Byrds’ “So You Want To Be A Rock-N-Roll Star” or about half the tracks on Weezer’s blue album, the burning adolescent desire to nothing less than fucking rock is the very thing that makes rock music a constantly renewable resource—and it’s also what makes Radkey—a trio of power riffing brothers—such a classic kind of rock and roll phenomenon.

            Formed in the quiet enclaves of St. Joseph Missouri, the trio of 20 year-old Isaiah Radke (bass), 18 year-old Solomon Radke (drums), and 22 year-old Dee Radke (vocals/guitar) began making music together in 2010. Fueled by a steady diet of Nevermind and small town boredom, Radkey’s music quickly went from a bedroom hobby into a full-time pursuit. The band opened for Fishbone in 2011 – less than a year after first playing together – and eventually headed out on the road to play shows with the likes of Red Fang, Against Me, and Touche Amore. Given that the band members were homeschooled (and thanks to their incredibly supportive parents), the idea of jumping in the family van and hitting the road gradually morphed from a kind of surreal fantasy into a much-celebrated reality. In 2013 the band unleashed two EPs (Cat And Mouse and Devil Fruit) and knocked out tons of big-ticket live appearances (including Riot Fest, Download, and, in 2015, Coachella and Japan’s Punksping) in addition to taping a memorable spot for Later with Jools Holland. Though early press on the band often focused on their unconventional backstory—a rock band comprised of three homeschooled African-American teenagers from Missouri—the band’s backstory was always eclipsed by their incendiary live sets: balls-to-the-wall garage punk that is messy, explosive, and crazy loud.

            “The last couple of years have been really crazy,” says Isaiah, the group’s most outspoken member. “Traveling in England in Europe was really cool for us. It’s incredible—and such a weird feeling—that you are doing something that is actually important to people. To travel to other countries and see people singing along with us is just…it’s really strange. I never thought our music would become a thing that could take us to all of these places.”

            After nearly five years of playing and touring together as a band, all of the Radkey’s hard work comes full circle on Dark Black Makeup—the band’s full-length debut. Recorded primarily in the UK alongside producer Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, The Fall, Jarvis Cocker), the album is a blistering punk opus—13 tracks that show off the band’s knack for combining stadium-sized riffs with surprising pop sensibilities. Tracks like “Love Spills” and “Evil Doer” rank among some of the best—and hookiest—songs the band has ever written, while tracks like “Le Song” and the album’s title track show just what an unstoppable live juggernaut the band has become. The songs are both tightly wound and explosively huge-sounding “We wanted to show people that you can still make a proper rock record,” explains Isaiah, “Something that is both super catchy and super heavy. We want people to hear it and think Fuck Yeah! Mostly we just try and only write songs that we love—that we love the shit out of—and that way it never gets boring and it never feels like a drag to play them live even if we’ve been playing them for years. It seems like a simple thing, but we really just want to make the music that we want to hear.”

            Dark Black Makeup tackles more than a few teenage tropes—boredom, anger, girl problems, broken friendships—but does so in a way that is not only clever, but also refreshingly honest. No where is this more evident than on the record’s title track, which itself is a kind of high-decibel wake up call for young people to take ownership of their own lives: a sort of punch in the face for teen angst that is made all the more visceral coming from three musicians just barely out of their own teen years. “That song is about how much of your teenage years can just be such a waste,” says Isaiah, “If you spend all of your time not caring about anything just because you think you’re not supposed to then you’re probably leading such a boring life. You could be partying or making something, as opposed to just spending all your time worrying about what other people think. It’s like, wake up. Hang out. Do something. It’s annoying that you can’t necessarily change the fucking world at that age, but you can make your own situation better. Stop wasting time”

            Five years in and the brothers Radkey are happy to be making a musical statement that will hopefully put to rest a few of the preconceptions that have followed them throughout their career thus far—namely those based around their age, their hometown, and race. “Surprisingly that—the racial thing—hasn’t been a factor for us,” says Dee. “Honestly, it’s never been about that. Mostly we get given a hard time about our age, but that’s also something we can’t really change. We might walk into a venue and feel like people are taken a little bit by surprise when they see us, but usually after we play all of that stuff kind of goes away. We get a lot of questions about being brothers—like, do we argue?—and it’s a good question I guess, but the answer is no, we don’t really argue very much. And yes, we all write the songs together—everyone writes—so it’s not a thing we really spend too much time thinking or talking about it.”

            The ambition of Dark Black Makeup is evidenced by the heightened songwriting and broadened sonic palette, but the energy behind the music remains the same—visceral, urgent, and raw. It is the sound of three people doing what they love…loudly. “Our only ambitions have ever really been to make a record that people will love and to be able to play as many shows as we can,” says Isaiah, “It’s also a personal journey. We’ve been living this for years now. This is literally all that we do and the record is the evidence of that. I stop and think, man I’m 20 years old and I’ve been doing this since I was basically 14. We’re still making the same kind of music we were when we started, but we’re better at it now. Thankfully, we’ve had the opportunity to actually go out into the world and experience some real shit, which gives us something to write about now. We just want people to listen. And play it really loud.”

            Drop a Grand is a Kansas City band or a performance-art ensemble. Or both.

            Its members wear costumes and go by pseudonyms or noms-de-tunes. Their performances are loud, brash, dramatic and subversive. Their music is a deranged, riff-roaring clamor that clings to a steel-toed groove.

            “It’s psychotropic blues-punk,” said Unicron, the band’s bassist. We recently interviewed the band’s founder, Gern Blanzden, about the band’s music and the art of costuming.

            What was the concept of Drop a Grand from the beginning?

            It’s very self-serving: I have $1,000 to blow with my buddies. … What should we do? Sure as hell ain’t gonna play a round of golf, now are we? Mommy always said if you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing. In DAG we’d get blurry-eyed, make some enemies and blame it on the Tiger.

            Were costumes part of the concept from the start?

            Complete disguise was initially the only means of getting others to join me on a stage. Kind of an afterthought, but whatever. The art of costuming has significant advantages: minimal stalkers and no unwarranted shop talk from town to town.

                                                    Gary Clark Jr

                                                    On the title track of “This Land,” Gary Clark Jr. is staking his claim to a literal place on the map, settling
                                                    in and declaring: “I told you there goes the neighborhood… This is mine now, legit.” It’s a song with real-
                                                    life roots in how Clark and his family have traded up in turf in his native Texas and been met with some
                                                    suspicious glances upon move-in. And if it sounds like he’s had some practice in defiantly ignoring
                                                    expectations about where he ought to live, well, that’s something he’s been doing musically his whole life.
                                                    He’s a rock-and-soul omnivore who can survey the entire landscape of American music — not just the
                                                    blues with which he’s so often associated, but reggae, punk, R&B and hip-hop, too — and say: This land
                                                    was made for you and me.
                                                    He owns it all on This Land, his third studio album for Warner Bros. Records, which is sure to be seen as
                                                    a breakthrough in establishing just how much stylistic variation Clark has at his command. There are
                                                    plenty of the guitar-hero sounds that have already established him as a headliner, with tunes that reiterate
                                                    that Cream influences always rise to the top, from a guy who’s long since come to be considered by
                                                    Clapton as a friend and contemporary, not just acolyte. But if a lot of fans would consider Clark the
                                                    closest thing we have to a modern Hendrix, what comes through implicitly in This Land is the sense of
                                                    just how much Jimi loved and borrowed from Curtis Mayfield. You can think of Clark as one of the last of
                                                    the real rock gods, along with fellow master singer/guitarists like Jack White, John Mayer, or the late,
                                                    great Prince and the new album certainly won’t do anything to diminish that perception. But This Land is
                                                    also a great soul record — one in which it’s easy to hear the lineage that connects Muddy Waters and
                                                    Childish Gambino, with distinct nods to Marvin Gaye somewhere in the middle.
                                                    You’ll hear strains of Gaye not just in Clark using his falsetto more than he ever has before. It’s in the
                                                    mixture of social consciousness and sensuality that was a matter of course for records like “What’s Goin’
                                                    On”… not to mention “Sign O’ the Times.” Obviously you hear the awareness of what’s goin’ on in the
                                                    song This Land itself, in which Clark finds himself “paranoid and pissed off” among well-heeled neighbors
                                                    who “think I’m up to something” just because his family doesn’t fit the local demographics. The attention
                                                    to the greater good also informs “What About Us,” which has Clark announces that “the young bloods
                                                    are taking over” — something he says to a fictional figure who recurs in several songs, “Mr. Williams,” a
                                                    guy who could be a past-his-prime neighborhood boss… or, who knows, a stand-in for some bigger
                                                    political figure who also has to go. “Feed the Babies” brings in the brass to augment a call for
                                                    understanding that’s a pleading, purposeful antidote to the raw nerves of the title song.
                                                    Yet Clark also uses the album to get more personal than he ever has on record before, often assessing
                                                    the tough balance between career and family. “Pearl Cadillac” is a payback to a mother’s devotion. He’s
                                                    the parent in “When I’m Gone,” preparing a child for yet another trip away on the road, a topic he also
                                                    takes up with a significant other in “Guitar Man,” where he’s weighing the “stamps in my blue book” and
                                                    the fellowship of the road against the fear of a toll taken by time apart at home.
                                                    But if it’s the ballsy tropes of rock, blues and R&B that you’d like a fresh spin on, This Land hardly
                                                    foregoes the twin towers of swagger and regret. “Friday night and I just got paid/I’m out looking for some
                                                    trouble,” he sings in “Feel Like a Million,” a number that starts out as Peter Tosh and ends up
                                                    somewhere closer to an arena-rock anthem. He’s found that trouble and then some in “Don’t Wait Til
                                                    Tomorrow,” a balladic plea to the woman at home to forgive dalliances, with the knowledge that she may

                                                    exact some what’s-good-for-the-goose revenge. “Low Down Rolling Stone” is an affair-ending lament
                                                    from a wayward soul who’s discovered “darkness is my comfort zone.” But there’s no sorrow — yet – in a
                                                    pair of kick-ass “got to” songs. “Got to Get Up” brings on the trumpet as Clark repeats “Kill ‘em all!” like
                                                    the rock mantra it is, and “Gotta Get Into Something” finds him reaching to pure Chuck Berry territory…
                                                    or maybe not so pure, since there’s something positively Ramones-y in his take on furious proto-punk
                                                    rock and roll.
                                                    It may sound diffuse as an album, but it all holds together as part of a singular vision from Clark and his
                                                    co-producer, Jacob Sciba, a longtime Austin friend and chief engineer at Arlyn Studios where most of
                                                    This Land was laid down. Clark has had interest from some of the top producers in music but has found
                                                    most of them are interested in bringing out just one aspect of his multi-faceted musical persona. Sciba is
                                                    the pal and sonic wizard who comprehends the scope of what Clark does, and welcomes it… and is faced
                                                    with the challenge of making something sonically coherent out of all these styles.
                                                    How to position Clark has been a cheerful problem from the start, since he was a blues aficionado who
                                                    loved hanging with the hip-hop kids just as much as he relished going to local Pinetop Perkins shows. He
                                                    grew up watching music television, but not so much MTV. “I kind of got introduced to everything by
                                                    watching ‘Austin City Limits,’ which had Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert
                                                    Cray,” he’s said. “It all kind of hit me at once, and I just loved anything that sounded bluesy or rock & roll
                                                    that felt dangerous and had loud guitar solos up front. Ultimately I figured out where it all came from, and I
                                                    think the thing that really resonated with me was guys like Albert King and Freddie King — the three
                                                    Kings,” along with B.B. Soon, as a barely-teen prodigy, he was making his way out in to the real world,
                                                    being mentored by Austin club owner Clifford Antone as he hooked up with every available local legend.
                                                    Local legend Doyle Bramhall brought him to meet Eric Clapton at a Crossroads Festival in 2010, where
                                                    they jammed with Sheryl Crow. A year later, his Warner Bros. debut release Bright Lights EP became
                                                    the first EP ever to get the lead review in Rolling Stone, which wrote, “A genuine 21 st -century bluesman,
                                                    raised on the form in all its roughneck roadhouse glory but marked by the present day? That’s been as
                                                    hard to find as a 21 st century clockmaker.”
                                                    But Rolling Stone may have really been on to something when the magazine got past his prodigious licks
                                                    and added, “Suddenly you can envision him dueting with Adele, swapping tunes with Jack Johnson or
                                                    singing hooks for Nas.” Not all those collaborations came to be, but soon enough he was asked by Alicia
                                                    Keys to co-write and play guitar on “Fire We Make,” a song from her Girl on Fire album, not long before
                                                    he released his Warner Bros. Records debut album, Blak And Blu, in 2012. Not long after, "Ain't Messin
                                                    Round", from Blak And Blu was also nominated for Grammy in 2013 and in 2014, Clark had won his
                                                    first Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance for the track "Please Come Home", from that album.
                                                    Before long he was benefitting from the advocacy of the Rolling Stones, who’ve repeatedly enlisted him
                                                    as an opening act and on-stage guest. He played for the Obamas at the White House alongside not just
                                                    Mick Jagger but B.B. King, Jeff Beck, and Buddy Guy. On a prime-time tribute to the Beatles, he
                                                    performed alongside Dave Grohl and Joe Walsh. On a similar TV tribute to Stevie Wonder, he teamed up
                                                    with Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran. On record, he co-wrote and played guitar on Childish Gambino’s “The
                                                    Night Me and Your Mama Met.” In 2017 he was widely praised as a standout among standouts at the
                                                    MusiCares benefit honoring Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, making two appearances that night, one by
                                                    himself and once in collaboration with the Foo Fighters, huge fans who had recorded with and taken Clark
                                                    out as their opening act before he graduated to major headliner status.
                                                    When the (then-) president of the United States has not only included you on his famous Spotify playlists
                                                    but called you “the future,” is there anywhere to go from there? This Land proves there is — and it’s a
                                                    genre-free future that encompasses virtually the entirety of electric roots music and African-American
                                                    forms and moves forward from there. It’s a landscape that’s his eminent domain.
