THE BALLAD OF DONALD JOHN TRUMP IS OUT NOW (sorta)!

Tom Dyer and The True Olympians have released (sorta) a digital single, "The Ballad of Donald John Trump", the first single from their upcoming, soon to be released album.

And just to be clear [...]

AMY DENIO & TOM DYER DEBUT DEATH AT MOUNTS ROAD

Hi Kids! We have a new and possibly morbid single from Northwest music institutions Amy Denio and Tom Dyer.  “Death at Mounts Road” is about the December 18, 2017 Amtrak derailment which killed three people and injured sixty-two, the deadliest train crash in Washington state since 1910. As should be the case, this song is neither pretty nor happy, it is rather grim. The song is being released  jointly as [...]

I am listening to #50 right now (it came out Dec 15, but hey  - I 've been busy) and it sounds good - pretty poppy. 50 issues puts #1 back to Summer 2005. That is a long and consistent run of documenting a pile of obscure mostly Pacific Northwest music. Nicely done, [...]
