LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY BAND (Click link to refresh your memory.)

Like the brutal March winds, the Man From Future returns to”Spot the dumber”:

“Balds, Bangs and the In-between is a band pushing the edge. There’s no room for rules in their rock lexicon. They shun band uniforms. They don’t shy away from challenging lyrical topics such as the hardships of working at Starbucks. Check your expectations at the door, these lads will show you how insightful the obvious truly is.”

And truly insightful, yet again. Thanks Man From the Future! The band was in fact THE BAND APART, Spanish death metalists who took their name from Quentin Tarantino’s production company. That’s hardcore!

Jazzy birthdays this week: Roy Haynes is still kickin’ it at 81 as of Tuesday, March 13. And percussionist Ralph MacDonald turns 63 on Thursday, March 15. You may catch Ralph providing the hot-cha beats for Jimmy Buffett.
