Rock the Bells is going to be crazy! Big shouts to Guerilla Union and everyone involved in this one! I will be there wearing a few hats, multi-tasking and enjoying the show! With Sage coming back after last years “show”, this one is going to be a Polaroid moment for sure.
“After putting on an incredible set at the 2004 Rock The Bells Festival, where SAGE “involved” the audience by firing a salvo of broccoli into the crowd, Chuck D of Public Enemy commented, “Sage Francis is just being himself… SAGE seemed to take delight in taunting some of the more conservative hip-hop fans in attendance. This ultimately culminated with SAGE performing his politically charged song “Makeshift Patriot” in his underwear to “…reward the crowd for being so nice.”
Stay tuned for more info!

~Hick Hop Rules!
Continuing the hip-hop country movement and challenging Cowboy Troy’s spot, Asylum St. Spankers brings hip-hop to country music. You be the judge. Kinda reminds me of The Rappin’ Duke or something Everlast forgot to do. Continued proof of the power of hip-hop and why such power must be used wisely!!
2005 Charlie Pride yaoming!
“Penned by Spankers’ co-founder and co-frontman Wammo, the song “Hick Hop” (a blend of hip hop and country) has been recorded and released on two separate CDs – one of Wammo’s 3 solo CDs and the last Asylum St. Spankers CD – and on the band’s DVD “Sideshow Fez……Wammo would be happy to go hat to hat and boot to boot with Cowboy Troy on a Hick Hop throw-down. A verbal duel, new old-west style. What could be more Hick Hop than that?”
Videos from the DVD “Sideshow Fez” shot at the Fez Ballroom, Portland, Oregon, on August 15, 2003
Audio from the Wammo album, “Faster than the Speed of Suck” recorded 1997, released 2001.
Audio from the Asylum Street Spankers album “Mercurial” recorded March 2003, released February 2004.
