The Ballad of the Dreadnought





Ballad of the Dreadnought is a new film—narrated by actor and Martin player Jeff Daniels—that traces the rise of the Martin Dreadnought.

It’s a legend that began on a humble wooden workbench in a dusty factory in 1916. The instrument made that day was a guitar with a startling design created by America’s leading guitar maker—C.F. Martin & Co. of Nazareth, Pennsylvania. In time, the model would become one of the world’s most iconic instruments, shaping the sound of American music.

Meet Ryan Almighty, The Man Behind The Blood Portraits On The Brand New 7" Record From Antiseen and He Who Cannot Be Named


Ryan Almighty Blood Portraits On The Brand New 7" Record From Antiseen and He Who Cannot Be Named

1. Give us a quick view about why you enjoy doing the blood portraits?

Ive always been drawn to portraiture, and years ago when I was a performer (Viktor 44) It wasn't uncommon to incorporate blood into the act. It all just sort of evolved into what I am doing now. I am all about the aesthetics, symbolism, and dynamics of painting in human blood, Its without a doubt a passion and perhaps even a calling.

2. How does punk rock influence your art?

I was an outcast in a small town growing up, never fit in, nor did I want to, I found punk rock and art at an early age and used both as coping tools to get me through a fairly miserable hand I was dealt in the card-game of life. Kind of developed the philosophy: "If you cant join 'em, beat 'em" and developed a taste for provocation. Ive learned to stay true to myself and not worry about if my decisions in art are provocative or offensive to the status quo, and if that aint punk rock I dont know what is. Because of that it has become a goal to paint a lot of punk rock portraits utilizing the performers blood. Lets face it, life is temporary and in 20-50 years when my subjects and I are only a memory the fact that the paintings remain will be leaving relics of our little slice of time/(sub)culture.

Listen to Early White Zombie Song ‘Scarecrow #2′ (Exclusive)

The track is from an upcoming collection of rarely heard songs from the band's New York City days

The band White Zombie made a name for itself in the early and mid-1990s with heavy, horror-themed songs such as “Beavis and Butthead” favorite “Thunder Kiss ’65” and the hit single “More Human Than Human.” But before the band’s MTV salad days, White Zombie was a noise-rock group from New York City’s underground scene that pressed only a few hundred copies of its first few records in the mid- to late 1980s, leaving several songs out of print.

But on June 3, 39 early White Zombie tracks will be available, remastered by guitarist J. Yuenger, in a boxed set called It Came From N.Y.C. that will include five LPs or three CDs, and a 108-page, photo-packed hardcover book that chronicles the band’s rise. The remastered version of the previously unissued song “Scarecrow #2” premieres today on Speakeasy.

South LA's punk rock scene is thriving and 'Los Punks' is the proof


South L.A. is best known as the breeding ground for top-shelf rappers like Ice T, Kendrick Lamar and NWA. But there’s another music genre that’s slowly taking over the area — punk.



The new documentary, "Los Punks: We Are All We Have," chronicles the growing punk scene in South L.A., where every weekend there's a show in a backyard, a warehouse or on a rooftop.
The Frame’s James Kim spoke with Gary Alvarez, who sings in the band Rhythmic Asylum, and Kat, the singer for the band Las Cochinas, both of whom are featured in the documentary.

Sweeping new protections urged for Nashville's Music Row


Local preservationists are working with David Briggs to save House of David, the famous publishing house and recording studio on Music Row that once served many purposes for Briggs.

Music Row should be designated a “cultural industry district” by Metro government according to an ambitious new proposal from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the local Music Industry Coalition.

The designation would pave the way for Music Row neighbors to band together to create a nonprofit organization, Music Row Investment Trust, which could then pursue preservation tools including low-interest loans to purchase and rehabilitate historic buildings.

A neighborhood in Tennessee has never been designated a cultural industry district before.
The National Trust and the Music Industry Coalition, which was created in the wake of the near destruction of historic RCA Studio A, will release their recommendations along with an 85-page supporting report on Monday.

The goal is to keep Music Row a vibrant neighborhood where music business is conducted and records are made. Music Row has already been named a national treasure by the National Trust.
Two years ago, Studio A was nearly demolished in favor of condos before preservation-minded philanthropists stepped in to save the building. And developers have been circling Music Row for years, until the Metro Planning Department took a timeout on zoning for new developments in 2015.
