We’re Back (part 2)


Sweet Baby Lou Returns from Hiding (sort of)

The Reverends return from their long hiatus. Still hunted by the law and on the run for their lives (though you’d never know it by this episode). The episode was recovered by WMUA and aired on Sunday the 11th of September. It’s origins are still unknown. However because of the new music provided by The Futurenows signs point that this is indeed a message from the now renegade Reverends.

Rumor Update: It seems that WMUA is in talks with a bunch of illegal Italian immigrants to replace the Reverends on the long-running Funk program, however WMUA has neither confirmed nor denied this rumor.

For any information on their whereabouts please contact this site. For now enjoy the funk.

Futurenows Ring in the New

Futurenows fist pump accordingly

Amherst’s finest folk foursome, THE FUTURENOWS, rang in the new season of Sweet Baby Lou & The Reverends of Funk in decidedly low key (but no less triumphant) fashion last Sunday night.

The Reverends will now air from 12-2am on Sunday Nights (technically Monday for the calendar fanatics). Either way, The Futurenows, who recently reunited (guitarist Sean Nolan was finally successfully extradited to the United States), and showcased a handful of new songs “Stateless State of Mind,” “Let Me Die in This World (of Mine)” that kept up with the campfire sing-a-long sound the band has been cultivating. Tony Interlande, the groups newest member, sat and played drums (and despite several introductions the Reverends were unable to learn his name, cue Baby Lou smiling down from Heaven) on these and old crowd-pleasers like “Sign Your Life Away” and “Tracks They Came” off their first release “Handsome Ballads.”

The Futurenows next live appearance will be this upcoming weekend with fellow SBL alums Andyhasaband. For more details click their web site link below.
