This music blog is a place to share the passion for music, especially new music. We hope to connect with others who feel the same way.
AKA The Dadada: Clif grew up an army brat, and was a self-professed teenage slacker. He spent his high school years balancing a love for classic rock from the likes of the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and the Rolling Stones with a developing interest in the eighties college music scene, where he grew to love bands such as R.E.M., the Replacements, and later, the Pixies. He joined the army for a two year hitch after high school, and then went onto college. Since that time, he has had a few interesting career turns, lived a lot of places, and traveled to places he never imagined visiting as a child. His musical tastes reflect his exposure to many people who share his intrinsic passion for music. Clif is a married father of three boys, and each child has referred to him as The Dadada, hence the blog’s name. He resides in Greenville, NC.
AKA C.L. Cucumber: Originally from South Louisiana, Craig spent his formative years in suburban Dallas, developing a penchant for bad hair metal (e.g. Motley Crue and Ratt), U2, the Clash, and late 80′s hip hop. High School brought a move to suburban Atlanta and a renewed love affair with the classics (the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Zeppelin) as well the strange new music of Jane’s Addiction. After one ill-advised semester at West Georgia College, Craig transferred to the University of Georgia and quickly became immersed in the Athens scene. Primary bands of the era included Olivia Tremor Control, Neutral Milk Hotel, Elf Power, Of Montreal, Asa Nisi Masa, and MACHA, and many great regional and national touring acts (e.g. Mudhoney, Morphine, the Jesus Lizard) could be scene at the 40 Watt Club for a modest fee (with PBR tall boys on perpetual special). His appreciation for ‘the New’ has led to a taste for experimental music & avant-garde pop (e.g. Zappa, Beefheart, Sonic Youth, Akron/Family, Deerhunter) and deep friendships with like-minded audiophiles. Craig is a happily married father of two, and he resides in Greenville, NC.
