Show #135: Bizarre Noir

Well, here we are wrapping up the year that was ... 2012.  I remember starting the year with the resolution of getting back in to writing and playing, then eventually doing that long-dreamed album project.  Instead, a fateful conversation with Jack Barkley on a rainy spring night led me to starting a radio station instead.  In retrospect, it was probably the better choice.  The original idea was to keep something related to local music in front of people during those weeks when I just didn't have the time or energy to do a podcast.  Unexpectedly, the station greatly increased attention and traffic to the site and provided the opportunity to record podcasts live, in real time, from the newly-improved and remodeled basement studio -- instead of carting the gear out and recording two hours of stream-of-conscious rambing that often took days to edit into a 1-hour show.  This meant I was suddenly recording two podcasts per week with much less editing time and effort to get them out, and have even been able to incorporate live sets played right here in Studio B and broadcast live to the Internet at large. 

Our final podcast of the year features Bizarre Noir, a heavier band that places an emphasis on showmanship, storytelling, and the now sadly somewhat-archaic "album concept."  Any fan of hard rock, metal, or even 90's industrial music will find something they like in this music, I know I did.  Sadly, I've not yet been able to see a live show, but I'm hoping to rectify that oversight sometime in the near future.  As always, I had a great time hanging out with these guys, and look forward to their new project in the coming year.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
