The Steel Wheels - Sideways

I first got tuned into The Steel Wheels back when I was playing upright with a bluegrass group. I was drawn to the rock undertones in their sound. Lead singer Trent Wagler sings without the grit in his voice that was present in the early days, but the band’s sound has expanded to include drums and more electric instruments bridging the gap between string band and rock. Trent is an incredible songwriter and Sideways delivers in abundance.

lou reed the king of new york by will hermes; thank you (falettinme be mice elf agin) by sly stone

I’m pairing these books together because I was fascinated by the dichotomy of the New York scene as opposed to the West Coast experience of the late 1960s through the 1970s. I found the amount of conjecture and speculation from biographer Will Hermes unnecessary and distracting, but it’s still a wellspring of insight into the figure of Lou Reed. Sly Stone, in his own words, jumps off the page, as if he’s in the room. A dominating presence that left me questioning his level of self-awareness. Both trail-blazers of their time, I find them equally challenging to appreciate outside of that context. Though Sly’s music is arguably more timeless.

The first in a series of collections that attempts to see behind the false facade of white America's self-segregated, hyper-consumerized way of living. Exposing the myth of "everything's perfect" and giving voice to the parts that are broken. From gun violence to trans-phobia, gentrification to homelessness things are hardly perfect, or even healthy in Whitelandia. The first step in healing is to name the disease and I hope by doing so we begin moving toward a better world for all.
