I know you haven’t heard of the band I am about to reference unless you are located near Cincinnati.  That band is called The Psychodots.  When Adrian Belew joins them, they are The Bears.  Belew, Rob Fetters, Bob Nyswonger and Chris Arduser.  The wrote a song once called “Prarie Dog Town”.  I reference this band’s song because there is a line in the song that, when presented with the following subject matter, immediately popped into my mind: ‘We’re too hip to screw around’.

I like to think we are too hip to screw around.

My thinking is influenced by the fact that I have long been espousing the existence of one Gary Tanin.  Yeah, my best thing to ever happen to me studied Mr. Tanin in her Telecommunications courses in college (while I wasted my time in Business Administration with a Law minor, UGH, useless) but I knew of him as a contributor to the genesis of what became that computer program in your Mac called GarageBand.

Then there was his involvement in the career of long-time Todd Rundgren cohort Roger Powell.  Then there is his work with former BoDeans member Sammy Llanas.  Then there is his solo work on his own musical career, as well as the numerous artists to whom he has lent his magic ear.

I put on my Facebook page that I use to promote this blog, (https://www.facebook.com/groups/bouleblog/) that we only back winners on this site.  We stand by that, and in fact, we are now pleased to show our proof.  Dig in as we go to one of the satellite Grammy galas, this time in Chicago where Mr. Tanin rubbed elbows with a few high and mighty folks at this event.  This was one of the REAL events, unlike that sham of a show that captured the mindless of America, topped American televisions ratings and proved that most of America’s minds have turned to mush.

Check out the real deal…
