L: What was your strangest gig?
Worth a more leisurely look and listen is the latest cool band from New Jersey, Titus Andronicus. With a name that sounds like a Roman emperor but is actually a Shakespeare play, these Garden State rockers are still driving around in a van working their second album from last year, "The Monitor." The title refers to the Navy's first ironclad warship, famous for battling the CSS Virginia to a draw in the spring of 1862. A period photograph of the Monitor's crew is featured on the cover of the band's album. A Civil War Louis Vuitton Belt New Collection
L: Does "Jersey Shore" make the locals even madder than the hoods in "Boardwalk Empire" Hermes Belt With Diamonds
S: It's real stupid, but what's even stupider is that those people aren't even from New Jersey not that they don't do a pretty good job of representing some of the archetypes. So yeah, it's annoying, but that's old news. And the state has had the worst PR department forever. It's just fuel for our indomitable underdog spirit.
L: I'm a Civil War re enactor, which is why your album, "The Monitor," appealed to me. Plus, you don't see many or any vintage Louis Vuitton Belt Cream
L: Yes, Sixth Wisconsin, Iron Brigade. I'm the first sergeant.
Civil War photographs on CDs these days, so how'd that come about?
and scads of other cool bands
Coachella makes the search for cool tunes a snap scores of great bands all in one place over three days. If you love music, you'll love it even more after a weekend working on your tan and/or melanoma out in the desert.
picture rather than hot chicks or boy toys or weird art? That makes this one of the more un rock covers in memory.
S: Did you say you're a re enactor?
S: Oh, not necessarily. The name was selected mostly because it sounded cool and any other bookier connotations were added on after the fact. As long as you have an appreciation for an appealing collection of sounds, the band name should not be a stumbling block because, like the man said, "What's in a name?"
Black Joe Lewis the Honey Bears, Brandon Flowers, Caifanes, Cold War Kids, Crystal Castles, Flogging Molly, Interpol, Kings of Leon, Ozomatli, the Aquabats, the Chemical Brothers, the Black Keys, the Pains of Being Pure of Heart and Titus Andronicus are just some of the reasons to walk and rock around in the desert sun at the 12th installment of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. And that's just the first day of this three day epic, which kicks off April 15 at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio.
In between the three tents and two outdoor stages, there's food and drink, shade, some sort of a disco oasis in the middle of the sprawling site, and a constant supply of people to gawk at.
L: So how are you guys getting to Coachella, driving or flying?
And channeling President Abe Lincoln, frontman Patrick Stickles starts off the album with a rager, "A More Perfect Union." There's no letup thereafter as the band rocks its way up with other distinguished New Jersey rockers such as Ben Vaughn, the Feelies, Bruce Springsteen and our own 805 heroes by way Lv Belts For Mens of back there, Army of Freshmen. Mr. Stickles rocker, historian and guitar player discussed the latest during a recent phoner.
L: How do you guys survive on the road?
S: Nice. That sounds like fun, and if you're interested in that period of history, what makes it interesting was so many colossal, almost Biblical, scenes brother killing brother and all these larger than life figures, the future of justice and equity hanging in the balance. It's all very heavy and dramatic, and as an artist, it provides a rich wealth of images and stuff that carries a lot of weight for a certain kind of American.
S: Don't know him, but the Feelies? Of course.
S: Do we? As far as the rock 'n' roll scene in New Jersey, the scene where I'm from is more geared for a different sort of music, more hard core punk or pop punk sort of stuff. It never was really an easy place for us to fit in our home state.
S: Driving our regular old van the good ol' van.
L: So where do you guys fit into all that?
L: So Yankees have fans in Georgia? Wow. I was under the impression they haven't gotten past Sherman's March to the Sea in 1864.
S: No, they did that was funny. When we'd finish a song, the people would clap and go "Woo woo," and the dogs started going "arf, arf." The people would start making dog noises and that would just encourage the dogs more.
Stickles: Well, we're in Burlington, Vt., facing a snag right now. The battery in our van is dead from an overhead light left on overnight. Our host is coming out to give us a jump with his car and hopefully we'll be back on schedule in a few minutes.
L: Fast forward 150 years. Where does your band fit into the New Jersey hierarchy? I like Ben Vaughn, the Feelies and you guys.
So if you're still wearing a Pink Floyd or a Jimi Hendrix T shirt, that's fine, but even though your musical watch has stopped, music has kept on keeping on. If you want to discover new bands, or check out bands you've heard so much about, Coachella is the place to be, with more than 40 bands playing each day on five stages, a short walk in the sun apart.
L: There you go. So the band was named for a Shakespeare play?
S: The new thing on this tour is making an extra effort to stay hydrated. If we drink a lot of water, we think that will be good for our health.
Locey: Hey, Patrick, where are you guys?
S: You mean like ever, in history? One time we played in this hippie outpost in the forests of Decatur, Ga., on a stage they built at the bottom of a hill. They had these crude bleachers, and all these hippies watched us, and their dogs as well. There was pretty much a dog for every human, so that was kind of unusual.
