I just wanted to share with all the work of Jameson Mangan! I have recently been acquainted with him and his work, to say I'm super impressed is an understatement. Jameson is also responsible for directing the Andy Frasco SHitSHow mentioned previously on my site. These are some highly creative, ambitious and fully realized works of art! Check these out now and let Jameson know how much you like his work.
Andy Frasco's World SavingShit Show (Where Fevered Jam Dreams Meet Primetime Programming)
Andy Frasco is one of the biggest personalities in the Jam scene today. I can still vividly recall my first time seeing "ShitShow" Frasco perform with The U.N. on Jamcruise 2019, pink boxing outfit crowd surfing and causing havoc. I have been lucky enough to see Andy and The U.N. about half a dozen times and each time is a wilder and raunchier than the time before. I love it. here is a segment from that review and some highlights from my past.
"I had only vaguely heard of “Sweet Dick” Andy Frasco and his World Saving Podcast before getting on the boat and boy, was I in for one of the wildest experiences of my life. I have never witnessed such an orgy of musicians and wild onstage antics. Andy Frasco may just be the GG Allen of the Jam scene. My first time seeing Frasco on the boat, I was awe-struck, jaw to the floor as he crowd surfed across the entire venue, all the way to the soundboard and back. A Jewish Dionysus who would talk about and ingest numerous substances while onstage, and have the crowd join in."
"Andy Frasco And The U.N. are the real fucking deal; a no holds barred, orgy of musical chaos. There is nothing like it. It is perhaps the closest thing to the WWE or professional wrestling within the musical world. The gross display of complete negligence while still remaining coherent is remarkable. I’m left wondering, “Can this last forever?” I have to answer, “I sure as hell hope so!” Frasco is the shining light, the Dionysus, the one promised to enlighten us all. Being a fan of Andy Frasco is like joining some Dionysian Mystery Cult. Watching and listening to Frasco grow and be reborn again is only half the fun. This is either the greatest media ploy in existence or the realist shit out there. You decide."
Andy Frasco and The U.N. are back on tour now but I would advise all my readers to check out The World Saving ShitShow and podcast. Give this crazy shit a shot. Andy has some amazing guests and the production value is on point, the editing is highly professional and the whole ShitShow is Prime-Time Jamworthy content. I am looking forward to seeing Andy and all of you this summer 2021. Floydfest will be the next time I can see these guys but I will be ready to fucking rage! My VLOG (Out OF My Mind) should be up and running and maybe we will even get to see Andy on that son of a bitch, who knows. You can get a season pass to The World Saving ShitSHow on nocapshows.com for free. I kinda had a hard time finding it but once I did I was head over heels enthralled with ANdy and his antics.
Andy, if your reading this, I have some pretty crazy stories Id like to share with you on your podcast or the ShitShow, and if you ever need premium music/jam content come at me! You know you need the Jam Band Purist on the ShitShow. Let's talk some shit!
My good friend Mark Nicholson has just released his first solo endeavor and I wanted to share it with you here. Check it out below and follow him for more!
"Natural Born Lover" is raw and rock solid; performed with heart and emotion, Mark Nicholson lets it all out on this track. "Baby let your love light shine!" I can hear beyond the production into the songwriting backbone that makes this song stand out. This track is beyond country or rock and shows the versatility of Mark Nicholson's sound. We look forward to hearing more!
