Interview with the Broken Hearts

The very popular DJs and style icons the Broken Hearts host Peppermint Candy on Jazz FM weekly. Their program, while not labeled ‘dieselpunk’, certainly could be described as such with it mix of classic swing artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington along with contemporary swing bands such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Caravan Palace.

Interview with Carey Rayburn, bandleader of Good Co and trumpeter of Abney Park

In a world of DJs and remixers, it's hard to find a band willing to swing the world with new music. Thankfully, I ran into Carey Rayburn.  This jazz player is not only tapping to the electroswing beat, but he's built a whole company around it, a Good Company.

Staffed by a raucous band of jazz musicians and Abney Park alumni (including the dread Captain Robert), Good Co just released their first album Electro Swing for the Masses last week. After listening to the…

Miskatonic Monday - Interview with Atari Chaffin, creator of the Cthulhu Tiki

Lights out, everybody.

On Miskatonic Mondays, we celebrate the "weird" fiction of HP Lovecraft and the genre of otherworldly horror it spawned.

Whether the world has suddenly succumbed to tiki-madness or the Cult supports their own, I'll never know. However, I…

The Bad Boys of Swing: An interview with Lee Presson

The following interview is what I intend to be the first in a series. As a swing artist myself, I thought it would be fun to interview some of the popular swing musicians that punk the genre in their own special way - the “Bad Boys of Swing.”

Modern swing artists have different ways of "punking" the basic sound of swing and making it their very own, blending it with everything from jump blues to ska to rockabilly. And then there's Lee Presson and the Nails.…

JS Lewis, author and co-creator of The Grey Griffins series

Behind the Grey Matter of The Grey Griffins
