Fear not though funk fans, the full audio can be found by clicking on their Sweet Baby Lou page in the left hand column. For now enjoy the boy’s miles of metal psychedelia.

King Brad the Conservative

Last week a certain dethroned king of UMass lore broke his media silence with a controversial appearance on Sweet Baby Lou. There Brad DeFluemeri, former head of the UMass Republican Club, and one of the principal persons to bring back the UMass Minuteman, not only dished out his thoughts on the current state of a nation in peril, but also graced us with some character acting.

Below you can find a series of skits that finds Brad wondering through a land of peasants and farmers, a king without a throne.

The Time and Place

The self-described folk-anarchists that make up Time and Place stopped into the studio last Wednesday night, graciously offering us some company on our violent descent into madness. The troupe features Brandon Rainville and Jack Hawkins (ex-members of the now defunct ska group A Wrench in the Spokes) on vocals and guitar, and Meagan Day (of The Frills) who whips up a fury on the upright bass. Here the group powers through songs like “The Postscript / There Will be Time” and “As the Rain Dies Down” off last year’s self-titled EP. For exclusive tracks and links to the group’s myspace click the Read More link below.

Local Hampshire-ites and Happy Valley Showdown alums, Leisure Colony stopped by Sweet Baby Lou last week playing house band for the clan’s “All Songs Under Two Minutes” show.
