Ep 12 - Song 1: "Moody's Point" by Lipstick Homicide



This is me, Dan OlderMusicGeek, here on this piece...

It was Feb 5, 2011, at The Space in Ames's 3rd Anniversary Show!

Lipstick Homicide came on at 3:10 and did a short 20 minutes set! But I was blown away!

You can read about what I thought here - http://www.desmoinesmc.com/gdp-band-hype-lipstick-homicide/.

But right after the set, I went to see them. Told them they were the best high school band that I have ever heard.

They then informed that they were 22!

In my defence, Rachel and Kate are rather short!

They were selling a CD-R that featured 5 of the 7 songs that would be on their split with Billy Raygun. I, of course, was like Fry yelling at them to take my money!

"Moody's Point" was the first song on it! I loved it! I was just getting over a nasty divorce and crawling out of a mean depression where I spent WAY too much time on the couch watching TV. This song sounded like it had been written about me!

And since that time, I have been a die hard Lipstick Homicide fan. Seen them multiple times. Have almost everything they have ever put out! And they have not let me down.

Lineup:
Rachel Feldmann - vocals, bass
Kate Kane - vocals, guitars
Luke Ferguson - drums

Ep 12 - Song 2: "Pop Star" by The Whoopsie Daisies



"Well, it actually started way back in West High School... Me and our guitarist, Kate, have been friends for a long time. And we wanted to start, like. a fun girly band. I don't know! We were just really obsessed with girl bands and stuff and wanted to try starting one. But I don't know! We were The Whoopsie Daisies with two other girls."
- Rachel Feldmann from KRUI's Live from 380

"Kate and I wanted to start a band together in high school when we realized we both loved and knew how to play all the songs from the movie Josie and the Pussycats. We were really into that pop punk girl band vibe and enlisted the best bass player we knew, Rachel, for the endeavor. It was really fun to be in a band with close friends. We were very silly and free-spirited. We listened to each other's ideas and tried to always incorporate them all. We played together every day and started writing originals and playing as Lipstick Homicide around Iowa City. Rachel and Kate are both amazing singers, players and song-writers. They are very dedicated to music as a craft and performance. Luke was a great addition to the band. I've never met a more enthusiastic or fun drummer. He had so many fantastic ideas that really set the band up for success. Even as high schoolers and later college freshmen, we all really put the band first. They've done some amazing things over the years and always managed to keep the original enthusiasm and friendship that made Lipstick Homicide click."

Ep 12 - Song 3: "Sister Sister" by CroKane



"I met Kate Kane in the fall of 2007 while we were both attending the University of Iowa. The first thing of hers that caught my attention were the solo acoustic recordings she had up on the MySpace. Kate is a top-notch singer-songwriter, it was obvious even back then, and I remember being real impressed that at the age of 18 she was all ready an established musician around Iowa City, both as a solo act and with her band Lipstick Homicide. I was intrigued and wanted to get to know her better, so I started pestering her, attended some of her shows, etc. I started half-jokingly mentioning that we should start a band, and I think I came up with the name CroKane before I even knew she owned a drum kit!

"Kate was pretty much the first drummer I'd played with, so I didn't have a lot to compare it to at the time. However that being said, jamming with Kate felt pretty effortless most of the time. I don't particularly enjoy writing out songs, and I've never liked rehearsing things ad nauseam. I'd much rather just improvise lyrics and riffs on the spot for a 100 different tracks just to keep the 10 good ones instead of trying to perfect the same thing over and over. I've never been that confident in my singing, especially back then, but Kate encouraged vocals over instrumentals and helped me to feel less self-conscious about it, which ultimately lead to better improvisation. Also with it just being the two of us we were able to easily sync up and follow each others playing, even more so than when I jam as duo with other male drummer friends of mine now.

"CroKane only played a handful of shows over it's 2-year lifespan, and Lipstick Homicide was always Kate's main band. I remember thinking it was funny how Lipstick would play more shows on a two week tour than CroKane would play in an entire two years of being a band. Playing on stage with Kate was pretty great for me though, nobody can say nothing when you've got a super-cool-punk-rock-chick playing drums behind you, especially when she's as good as Kate. It was a fun band while it lasted, and I always felt fortunate that Kate was willing to play with me and put up with my crap."

Ep 12 - Song 4: "What's Expected of You" by Kate Kane



"I met Kate in junior high. I feel like she was the first actual punk rocker that I knew in real life. Even at the age of 13 when everybody was trying to act cool and get people to like them, Kate's only concern was being herself and having her own identity. Sometimes this meant freaking people out by eating moldy chips off the floor during class or dying her hair half white and half black like Cruella Deville. It was so refreshing to meet a person that unique and carefree who wasn't even trying to be. That's just who she was!

"I remember Kate being the first one of all of us to write truly well crafted pop songs. The structure and chord changes of her songs were unbelievably hard for me to wrap my head around. I remember hanging out with her at a friend's house when she played me what I was convinced was a Beatles song, but actually turned out to be an original called 'What's Expected of You' that ended up on the Lipstick Homicide album 'Isn't It Glorious'

"She's always been one of the most positive people I know, and always brings out the best in me and anyone she meets."

Ep 12 - Song 5: "La La (Shut Up)" by Lipstick Homicide



I just want to apologize for the awful sound quality. You can hear it better here - https://myspace.com/resistevilmusic/music/song/la-la-shut-up-12491546-12292730 - Dan OlderMusicGeek

"The movie is the 'Resist Evil' trilogy. And we're in the first one. One of the characters, Samantha, is in a band. And we play the band. She's in Lipstick Homicide. And she's our singer in the band... And there's a scene where we're all in the garage having practice. And I have a line. It was pretty great... It was like 'I'll see you in science class!'

"And we recorded a song that's going to be on the soundtrack. And it's in the movie. And it was written by Jason Hennesy from The Miracles of God. And we're pretty honored to play the song. And it was fun."
- Rachel Feldmann on "Live from 380"


"I love Lipstick Homicide. I also shot this video for them - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQn5fpAlW4w and Zach and I at Public School Records helped put out one of their records. Rachel played bass for Miracles of God at a few of our shows when she was still just a kid and Kate sang on some of my songs on this record: https://tuffjerks.bandcamp.com/album/tuff-jerks-2."

Ep 12 - Song 6: "Drunk Song" by Rachel Feldmann and Trevor Treiber



"I've been close friends with Kate and Luke since we were in a band together in 8th grade. Then we all met Rachel during our sophomore year of high school and our minds were blown. Even though it's been 10 years, I still remember the first time I heard Rachel play very vividly. It was at this thing called Jamnesty (a sort of high school talent show for bands & musicians). I went to it having low expectations as usual. Up until that point, I hadn't met anybody at my high school besides Kate and Luke that had the same attitude towards music as I did. But after I heard Rachel play, my world was instantly turned upside down. In all honesty, the band she played in wasn't really my thing. They were sort of a grungy 3 piece with the other two members being very average as far as high school musicians go. But Rachel out shined them and everybody else at that show by a long shot. I didn't know such a strong vocal delivery was capable of coming out of somebody that small. It was incredible how much passion and confidence she played and sang with even at that age. I remember thinking to myself "Fuck, we better make friends with her now before some other douchey band takes her away forever." So we did!

"Rachel is somebody who takes absolutely no shit from anybody. She has a drive that is unmatched. It was clear to me even back then that she knew exactly what she wanted to do and wasn't gonna let anything stand in her way. I'm convinced that she could have pursued any style of music and she would have been met with great success. It's just a shame that she chose the stinky poor life of a punk rocker. JK JK!

"It goes without saying that her songwriting is not something to be fucked with. It's kind of funny because I don't even really like modern pop punk these days, but every time I hear one of her new songs, it instantly restores my faith in the genre. It's a good thing that we grew up together and were close friends, otherwise I would have turned into a super obsessive Lipstick Homicide fan that followed them around to every show screaming their lyrics back at them on stage and slobbering and shitting all over myself. Actually, that life doesn't really sound too bad."

Ep 12 - Song 7: "Empty Gun" by Petit Mal



"Grace Locke Ward and Chris Ford formed Petit Mal in 2004 in Iowa City, Iowa. As a four-piece, which includes Rachel Feldmann on bass and vocals and Adam Havlin on drums and vocals, the band cites influences ranging from stoner metal icons The Melvins to fabulous Jewish Elvis himself Neil Diamond. This gamut produces a sound purely Petit Mal - anchoring compelling melodies to gigantic unyielding riffs for heavy poppy rock revelry."
- from their Last.fm page

'Petit Mal’s latest, Bless Your Little Heart, is a collection of 10 scrappy tunes following in the footsteps of fellow Iowa alt-rockers House of Large Sizes. The saccharine sweetness of the album’s title is almost nowhere to be found. If you want Care Bears and greeting cards, you best look elsewhere. If you like your alt-rock served with a heaping helping of snarls, “yeah”s, and “hey”s, well then, bless your little heart."

Ep 12 - Song 8: "Suck My Nuts" by Everybody Nose



“Everybody Nose is a band that is me, Trevor who used to play guitar in Lipstick Homicide, Luke who is in Lipstick Homicide, and our friend Molly who has been my good friend since elementary school. Luke and Trevor and sometimes me and sometimes Kate were a band called The Sequels several years ago and we’d just play at talent shows and maybe at UAY (United Action for Youth in Iowa City) once or twice. Just recently (June 2010) we wanted to start playing some old sequels songs as well as some other songs that me and Trevor wrote together. We just recorded last week and posted them on the internet. The purpose of the band is for our own fun. Most of our songs are about silly things.”

Ep 11 - Song 1: "Wake You in the Morning" by Ira Grace and The Bible Belt Prophets

"I love things that are just simply arranged. Two guitars, two voices, and when those harmonies come in, ya just kind of melt."
- from Bryon Dudley for this podcast

"In October of 2011, a band sprung from the cornfields and back roads of a small Iowa town. Ira Grace and the Bible Belt Prophets (consisting of Marc Bailey and Sara Williams) were formed. An up and coming acoustic duo, Ira Grace & the BBP is a band born of friendship and a mutual love of creating music. Having known each other since their early teens, Marc and Sara had no idea that by their twenties, they would be booking over 60 gigs and cutting an album in less than a year. From bars, to the Iowa State Fair, and eventually to their CD release at the Gaslamp in June of 2012, Marc and Sara feverishly sought out to make new music and share it with whoever would listen. Their soul-filled harmonies, poignant lyrics, and exquisite yet powerful balance of guitar picking is the foundation on which Marc and Sara deliver their original music. The on-stage energy created between them while performing is comfortable and contagious. From dark back alley bars, festivals, fairs, and private parties, Marc and Sara remain busy sharing their love of music in its most raw form."

Ep 11 - Song 2: "Fleshlike Material" by Mumford's

"I’ve only ever heard them do this song a handful of times live, but I love it. There’s a lot going on in the song musically, and the lyrics are heartbreaking and funny all at once, which is such a weird feeling. And that apocalyptic ending..."
- Bryon Dudley for this podcast

"Mumford's began as a solo project in the summer of 2008 and has expanded into a wild freak-folk storyteller dance band with a horn section. The songs always have a strong emphasis on storytelling and character development and use a variety of voices and instrumentation to bring across specific characters and circumstances."

Ep 11 - Song 3: "The Fall" by Brooks Strause

"The lyrics to this hit me like a ton of bricks the first time I heard this, like it was a song that I’d always known but hadn’t quite heard yet. I prefer when Brooks does it live, and it’s just super direct and kind of soul-crushing. It’s the ultimate “things have got to get better” song, and I think it’s one of the best written songs of all time."

"Pennyhawk has evolved into the band it was always destined to be, and that is Kate Kennedy taking front and center. Playing in various projects, such as Leslie and the Lys, Mumford’s, Christopher the Conquered and others, Kennedy’s confidence has risen to where she is able to carry her stories and her vision on her own. The result is one of the most interesting, honest, funny, whimsical, and beautiful albums of the year."

Ep 10 - Song 1: "Don't You Pray for Me" by The Colt Walkers



"Like the iconic single action revolvers from which they take their name, the Colt Walkers pack the explosive sonic punch of a wild-west shootout. The Iowa-based roots rockers populate their songs with sinners, saviors, wanderers and devils, weaving a tapestry at once spiritual and profane.

"The Colt Walkers make no apologies for their love of the musical forms at the heart of the American story: blues, country, folk and gospel. But they craft every lyric, melody and stomping instrumental with an eye toward the horizon – and an understanding that American music is at its best when it rocks."

"Crossfire is "Omaha's premier country dance band," blending classic country with current Nashville hits and original music that gets people on their feet and keeps the party going all night! Now a staple of Omaha's country music scene, Crossfire formed in 2010 when veteran musicians Walter Killam of Denton,Texas and Gary Groves of San Diego auditioned vocalist Dave Forney of Omaha for a new country group. Soon after, drummer Buck Weyerman, a well known local percussionist and member of the Nebraska Music Hall of Fame came on board. With Buck on drums and Walter on bass providing a solid musical backbone, Gary weaving in his blues-country guitar and Dave belting out the melody on the mic, matched with three-part harmony, we dare you not to sing along and dance the night away! Country fan or not - you've got a fever, and the only prescription is more Crossfire!"

Ep 10 - Song 4: "That Kinda Tough" by Danny Grause



"Danny Grause is not a traditional country artist. Fortunately for him, his fans don't really care. His music sits comfortably in their playlists somewhere between Merle Haggard and Maroon 5, providing a fresh combination of gravel and groove for those who believe "Country" is merely a state of mind. Danny has been described as 'the theoretical love child of Willie Nelson and Chaka Khan', both for his style of performance and his song craftsmanship. On stage with his supporting band the "Black Dirt Kings" his music takes the listener on a virtual road trip full of twists and turns and occasional stops in funky town. In 2010 Danny's signature sound caught the attention of some kindred spirits when a demo of "Don't Tell Mama" made the Top 15 our of more than 700 acts in the "Sailing Southern Ground Contest", created and judged by none other than CMA and Grammy award-winning "Zac Brown Band". His music has also been featured in radio, television, and most recently in the new ad campaign for the "Hotsy" corporation. Deliberately unpolished and unapologetic, Danny's commanding stage presence is just what you would expect from a carpenter's son who's proud of every callous and scar he's earned along the way."

Ep 10 - Song 5: "Aim's Gettin' Better" by Diana Upton-Hill
