" getting a NEW CROWD "

so anyway, i`m on this part time music course thing, just joined to try and meet other people to form a band after not having a great deal of luck with ads etc. anyway on Monday we had to take a Cd of one of our favourite bands/artists and give our comments on a track or two as a collective. now, around 99 percent of the other guys(and Girls for that matter! hahaha!) are into the heavy thrash metal and new wave punk thing....so i casually waltz up to the teacher with "Age of Miracles" in hand and tell the guy to play "You Did" and "Just to see you Smile" ( okay, i know i could`ve took any ONE of Chuck`s albums up, but seeing as this is his most recent, i figured it was the right thing to do). so to cut a looooong story short, i had people coming up to me afterwards asking about more info on this guy called Chuck Prophet..comments such as "what a cool singer!" and "that song was as catchy as fuck" came at me...and i was more than pleased to give them more details!. hahaha!...i`m not talking just a couple of people here, i`m talking about 11 or 13 ( virtually 2 thirds of the class!). so if they dig this?...what they gonna make of "No other Love"..."Homemade blood" etc?. yeah, on the BIG scale of things its only a few people, but it just goes to show that if you give kids a chance to hear something they might never here otherwise ( like on the radio or T.V. etc)...you can get a cool result!. theres another CD session coming up in around 3 weeks...so lets see?..hmm?...i think we`ll give em` some Doug Sahm stuff next time! Adios amigos! peace and rspct.

Great Washington Post Review

If Chuck keeps getting these kind of reviews in the big city newspapers, it's going to be a lot harder to get tickets to his shows. :) 10/17/04 - "Automatic Blues", the first track on this CD, kicks off with a swirl of Moog, a snarl of guitar—and the faint sound of a woman laughing. She was probably laughing at Chuck Prophet. It's not that the former frontman of proto-alt-country band Green on Red doesn't make some serious - and seriously moving - music. It's that, whether onstage or in the studio, he obviously loves his work. Whatever stylistic territory he explores - and "Age of Miracles" roams far, from hip-hop to garage to jangle-pop - his work is unified by his sometimes doomy, sometimes ironic voice, and by a creative delight that never seems smug or academic. That consistency is how he can make the leap from "Automatic Blues", a rocker so sludgy it brings mental images of dinosaurs dragging themselves from LaBrea, to "Age of Miracles", a sort of hippie-hymn-cum-headtrip-cum-cult-nightmare, with its mind-bending opening lines: "The night is gonna crush the day / Once it was the other way / We hope that you enjoy your stay." This track is barely gone before electronic blips and Prophet's voice, wailing "I got a letter this morning" through a bullhorn, open "You Did (Bomp Shooby Dooby Bomp)." When he raps "Who put the bomp in the bomp-shooby-dooby-bomp?" it's half affectionate tribute, half ominous accusation. Neither parody nor full-on hip-hop, it's just the right edgy, sometimes ambiguous style for the song's mood. A fine group of musicians, including several keyboardists, percussionists, horn players and backing vocalists, support this ambitious yet confident effort, designed to give its audience as good a time as its maker is having. On several songs, Prophet is still singing over the fade-out, as if he just can't be stopped.

If It’s Tuesday This Must Be Belgium

Hi, I'm an American living in Brussels and am totally psyched to discover Chuck's playing in Gent—at a nice venue where I saw Lucinda play last year... A friend of mine recently gave me No Other Love, which is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time. I just bought The Hurting Business (equally brilliant) and am waiting for the new one. Looking forward to the Gent show...

L.A.-aphobia?

If Chuck Prophet doesn't come to L.A. soon I will never stop crying. This could result in a serious medical condition, not to mention premature aging around the eye area. For the love of all that is good, get your ass down here Chuck Prophet. Thank you.
