Jon Langford and Company; Skull Orchard Visit WNKU

Gary Keegan spent some time with Jon Langford and the members of Skull Orchard on the first of June. The painter and musician, along his gang were able to play a few tunes for us including 1234ever, before their big show at MOTR.  Langford began behind the drum kit for The Mekons, but was out in front with a guitar by the time the band recorded its masterpiece, Fear and Whiskey, often credited as the first alternative country album. He discussed more about that unique term, alternative country, with WNKU's Gary Keegan.

The Pinstripes Live on WNKU

Caroline Tompkins

Winners of the 2007 Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best World Band, The Pinstripes don’t merely play Ska and Reggae — they inhabit the sound like it’s a ramshackle house that’s keeping them alive. Tight but never slick, fun but never goofy, intense but never serious, The Pinstripes (a hard-touring band with a hard-won following) combine Ska, Reggae, Dub and Soul to create something that’s genuinely lacking in a great deal of contemporary music: joy.
