MIA. – TACHELES erobert Platz drei der Album-Charts
Rückblickend betrachtet waren die letzten drei Jahre für MIA. und auch MIA.-Fans gleichermaßen nichts anderes als die Ruhe vor dem Sturm. So ist es nicht verwunderlich, dass sich die Berliner Band um Sängerin Mieze Katz mit aller Wucht zurückmeldet. Mit 11 neuen Songs im Gepäck begibt sich MIA. erneut auf eine große Reise – ein Vorbote: die erste Single-Auskopplung „Fallschirm“ erschien am 24.02.12 und landete auf Platz 11 der Single-Charts – die bislang höchste Chartplatzierung für eine MIA.-Single. Am 09. März folgte mit „Tacheles“ ihr fünftes Studioalbum. Der Titel ist Programm, denn nie zeigte sich die Band so klar und schnörkelos wie auf "Tacheles". Vor allem ist dieses Album konzentrierter. Die große musikalische Geste belegt weniger Fläche, Emotionen kommen auf den Punkt, Brutales schlägt nicht wild um sich, sondern im Beat. Das mögen auch die MIA.-Fans und so stürmt das Album diese Woche direkt von Null auf Platz drei der offiziellen MediaControl AlbumCharts.

Ein toller Erfolg für die Band, die aktuell fleißig durch Deutschland reist, um ihre Songs vorzustellen. So wird man Miez und ihre Jungs demnächst häufiger über die Mattscheibe flimmern sehen können:

Steel Guitar News March 19. 2012

Hello fellow players,

I’m sure most of you are members of the Steel Guitar Forum.  This is a wonderful place to post and have everyone read your opinions and anything you care to make known.  I can kind of feel the pulse and know what’s going on with steel guitar by reading it.  Some things that are said I agree with greatly, but as you know there are a lot of people that post that don’t play steel guitar and really know nothing about it but still have an opinion to deliver.

It seems like as time goes by the general populace of forum members seem to get smarter and smarter, but there are some beginners who don’t really understand where they are in the pecking order and really don’t play steel guitar yet, that print a lot of nonsense and the readers just have to be careful while sorting out the good from the bad.

I have seen a lot of players make some very asinine statements that a few years later, it’s obvious they have learned a lot.  I think this is very good and that’s what the forum is for.  For everybody to converse, offer opinions and share what they have learned with the rest of the world.

Many times a new player won’t really know a great old professional poster from another new guy like himself that is just offering an opinion.  He may have only been playing a few months on his Carter Starter or Maverick and he’ll jump right in there and blast a great player like Jernigan, Emmons or Hughey.

This is okay because I know he’ll learn in the future.  Being on the forum is one way to learn.  Just a word to the new guys from me.  Lay back and read a lot before you do a lot of posting unless you state your credentials at the time of posting.

Very often a customer will come into my store and make a statement where everybody on the forum says the Sho-Bud Maverick is the best guitar in the world.  About all I can say to that is, “For you right now, it might be.  But as time goes on, you’re going to be wanting something else if you improve.”

There are many different ways to learn how to play.  One of the best is to listen and watch.  The better the players are to watch, the better off you are.  Listen to great players like Cal Sharp, Mickey, Lloyd Green.  What they play is not extremely complicated, but it is extremely good.  There are some famous big name players on YouTube that can be listened to and learned from as you’re watching.

Some of the greatest fun I ever had with steel guitar was learning.  Just like me learning to become a pilot.  Some of the greatest fun I had learning to fly was during the learning process.

Buying DVDs that show you how to play are wonderful ways to learn also because you can watch them over and over as often as you have to.  Going out and hearing a good band live and watching the pedal steel player very closely can be not just a fun experience, but also a very good learning experience.

Nashville, TN (March 19, 2012) -- Todd Fritsch is back in the saddle - and Country radio - after a roping accident on the family cattle ranch left him with a crippling leg injury three years ago.  "It was a long road to recovery," says the engaging Texan. "But I had my second surgery this past December and I'm rehabbed and ready to go." "Calls I Haven't Made" is an outstanding song choice; Todd's rich voice resonates throughout this intriguing tale of redemption, and he's supported by top-drawer production and talented players. Fans can purchase the new single from iTunes.

"It's a little bit more of a 'Nashville sound' than anything I've done before," admits Fritsch, who enjoyed a string of hits with his previous Country singles (What's Wrong With Me, Small Town Radio, I Don't Live Here Anymore, I Got Mexico, and a duet with Texas legend, Gary P. Nunn, Every Honky Tonkin' Hero (Has His Day).
   
"Calls I Haven't Made" was produced by respected Nashville insider, Butch Baker.  The track is from Todd's upcoming CD, UP HERE IN THE SADDLE, due later this Spring. "I think 'Calls' will give radio a good idea of what the new album has in store," says the amiable entertainer.  "There are a few surprises and a little more polish on this project; fans are loving the new songs and they're going over well at my shows."

ABOUT TODD:
Todd's appeared on radio and television, played honky tonks, festivals and fairs throughout the Southwest and in Europe, appeared in a movie (PALO PINTO GOLD, starring Trent Willmon and Kinky Friedman) and graced the pages of Country Weekly, Best In Texas, Open Range and Texas Music magazines. He juggles his music career with his responsibilities on the family cattle ranch in Willow Springs, Texas. www.toddfritsch.com and www.facebook.com/toddfritsch

ON THE ROAD WITH IOWAN'S BOB & SHEILA EVERHART March 19. 2012

ON THE ROAD WITH IOWAN'S BOB & SHEILA EVERHART
 
     South Padre Island, Texas....."I can't believe what the spring breakers have written on their cars," Sheila Everhart the bass player for the dynamic Smithsonian duo said.  "It's all over their cars..."We're going to get drunk and puke."  What kind of fun is that?"
     "They have also been warned not to go to Mexico," Bob added, "because of the drug wars going on there.  The Border Patrol and local law enforcement have been very busy these past few days.  We are going back to Mexico because Sheila is having some work done on her teeth.  It's amazing, the dental work there is incredibly good.  She went to a dentist in Iowa before we came to Texas, and the fee for a crown and a root canal was over $2,000.  In Mexico the same work is like $400, so being without any kind of dental insurance, that's where we went.  Sheila's very happy with the work they've done so far, and we have one more appointment before we head back to Iowa."
     "We're already gearing up for several 'new' approaches to our old-time music concerts this year," Sheila added.  "We are going to celebrate the 100th birth-year of Woody Guthrie, Bill Monroe, Minnie Pearl, and Roy Rogers, with some old-time music shows together with old-time artifacts, to help museums raise money for their various fund-raising projects.  We have about six museums that will host our program, and they all look really interesting.  Some are not totally confirmed yet, but it appears we'll be at the Perry Arts Center for their museum; the Blairsburg Opera House for their museum; the Fort Dodge High School Little Theater for the Webster County Museum; the Riverside History Center; the Pioneer Music Museum; and the Fremont County Historical Society. The shows will all be a little different depending on what the museums come up with displays on each of the celebrants.  What is sure, it's an easy way to create a fund-raiser for museums, and we'll have lots of fun with old-time music and old-time artifacts."
     "We're also getting ready for the first shows of the season at the Oak Tree Opry," Bob added.  "We sure have a lot of great entertainers being with us April 20-21-22.  This is our own 'fund-raiser' for the Pioneer Music Museum, but we will also do another one during "Iowa Museum Week" when Red Johnson is with us.  This great Capitol Recording artist will have a special display in the Pioneer Music Museum during his appearance June 15th."
     "Budget lunch?" Bobbie Lhea squaked.  "We finally went to Chili's.  This is an interesting place to eat, and it's not all Mexican food.  Dad took one look at the menu and said, "OK everybody, all we're ordering is appetizers."  "What?" I said.  "But when I looked at the appetizers, I could see that they really had some neat food at a low price.  So that's what we did, stayed inside our budget, and lo and behold had more food than we could handle, just by eating appetizers.  No soft drinks though, but ice water with a lemon peel in it was just great."
