  • INTERVIEWS: THE ORIGIN OF GOOD RECORDS NYC

    By James Wells – Waxpoetics.com

    Is New York still a good place to buy records? Jonny Sklute (alternatively known under the handle Jonny Paycheck), owner, clerk, and CEO of Good Records NYC, would like to think that it remains a great place to sell them. A risk management broker turned record dealer, Sklute launched his storefront venture in 2005, right alongside the storied and busy market of East Village/Lower East Side record stores: A-1, the Sound Library, Gimme Gimme. I caught up with Sklute to see how the market was doing.[Read More]

  • NEWS: WANNA HIT? KEEP IT SIMPLE.

    By Jon Pareles – NY Times

    LATELY I’ve been having a recurring sinking sensation. A hit on the radio gets my attention and doesn’t repay it; it adds up to little more than a dull thumping Eurodisco beat and a robo-tuned voice repeating an inane hook, something like the “Ay-oh, gotta let go,” in Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite,” or Justin Bieber piping, “Baby, baby, baby, oh” or the Black Eyed Peas chanting “Imma Be” more than 100 times (though at least that song goes through some rhythm changes).[Read More]

  • REVIEWS: DON HILL’S NOW AND THEN

    By Matt Harvey – NY Press

    Back in September, nightlife blogs buzzed with sweeping pronouncements about the impact a rebranded Don Hill’s— the two-decades-old Greenwich Street institution newly reopened with capital provided by club mavens Nur Khan and Paul Sevigny—would have on the moribund Manhattan demimonde. Setting the tone for the blitz, Khan told one local paper, “There hasn’t been a CBGB’s or a Max’s or a Mudd Club in so long.” In the same article, Sevigny wondered how “hotel bars [had become the new] cool places to be in New York City.”

    So the partnership between the world-weary, blessedly still standing Don Hill (who has provided on-the-scene, drink-in-hand management at high-profile nightspots since he helmed the Cat Club in the mid-1980s) and the dynamic two late-aughties entrepreneurs would rescue Manhattan from the clutches of such influential, glitzy spots as, well Khan’s Rose Bar, which sits in the Gramercy Hotel. (Just this week, Khan announced he would no longer work with the upscale club.) [Read More]

  • NEWS: R.I.P. TEENA MARIE

    By Ben Seario – NY Times

    Teena Marie, a singer whose funky hits in the 1980s, like “Lovergirl”and “Square Biz,” made her one of the few white performers to consistently find success on the rhythm-and-blues charts, died on Sunday at her home in Pasadena, Calif. She was 54.

    The cause was not immediately known, but The Associated Press reported that the authorities said she appeared to have died of natural causes.

    Born Mary Christine Brockert in Santa Monica, Calif., on March 5, 1956, she grew up in a predominantly black area of nearby Venice, Calif., and began singing and acting while still a child. At age 8, she tap-danced for Jed Clampett on an episode of “The Beverly Hillbillies,” under the name Tina Marie Brockert. [Read More]
