Blaze Foley – Clay Pigeons

Great Song! I first heard of Blaze Foley when I heard John Prine do a song called “Clay Pigeons” and thought John Prine wrote it, as it sort kinda fits his songwriting style.

I later found out that Blaze Foley actually wrote the song, and now I have to track down a lot more Blaze Foley material.

Beef Curtans at Stir Concert Cove 7/17/09

93-BeefCurtans-with_dogDamn, the link is down at the moment, but I think Ken Guthrie Byproducts is responsible for this site:

The Beef Curtans were a popular alternative band in Omaha in the early to mid-90’s, and probably one of my first non-paying gigs with a “celebrity” band, bwahahwahah.

They had released only 1 album, actually a cassette called Brethren, but I had a couple of other recordings, including a live concert from the Lime Light in Sioux Falls, SD. They also released a cassette ScareyHead, but I think they spelled it Scarry Head, which was just a cassette of some live recordings and maybe a demo or two.

Pieces of Beef Curtans eventually went on to become parts of Echo Farm and FreeDirt, if my memory serves.
