Richie T. interviews Angela Cartwright

Richie T. interviews Angela Cartwright known as Brigitta Von Trapp in The Sound of Music. Angela talks about her book and love of art and photography. 

LISTEN BELOW

Richie T.: There's this whole debate old-timey photography with film.. and now with everything digital where do you weigh in in all that?

Angela Cartwright: There is something about the quality of film..uh photography. I love black and white..uh film photography. It is just so unique and has such a different quality about it. I have to admit I am kind of on the bandwagon with digital too. It is instant gratification.

Richie:.. How does the book come together?

Angela Cartwright: There is no photoshop at all in the book. It is all just how they were. You know, we went through thousands of negatives and two sheets and with our little white gloves on in the archives of the bowels of Twentieth Centruy Fox, we had kinf of unlimited access to the archives which is kind of unheard of. It was really quite an adventure, I was just so glad that Twentieth saw the value in it. 

Styling the Stars: Lost Treasures from the Twentieth Century Fox Archive is out in stores!

Meet The Bands: KoЯn Richie T |

Meet The Bands: KoЯn

Richie T talked with Fieldy from KoЯn about his aversion to heat, being a band for so long, and how the band was almost called Larry. Read a brief write up below, or listen to the full audio at the bottom of the page.  

Formation of the band:

It’s kind of crazy because we actually grew up together and being that, we weren’t really put together, we’re kind of like brothers. We grew up in Bakersfield California and we’re all from the same town. I’ve known all these guys since like seventh grade, so it kind of makes it a little different. I think that’s why there’s such a chemistry and a bonding.

If KoЯn didn’t exist:

KoЯn started 20 years ago and we haven’t really stopped to even have enough time to think about - what would I do? On some down time I put out a book called “Got The Life”, I did another solo band called Stillwell, I play guitar in that, I’m working on a bass album that’s almost out. So on the side I guess I’m still, I’m an artist. 

His aversion to heat: 

If I’m not hot it’s great, but most of the time when we’re doing our show it’s either if you’re indoors or outdoors you’re dealing with heat… I mean my heart is singing I just have to run back between songs and maybe dry heave a little bit and overheat and not feel good. It just kind of sucks you know? I don’t know how much I can put my body through. Sometimes I feel like I’m going to die but I don’t know, maybe I’m dramatic. Who knows? I just know I don’t feel good. 

Having a family and being in a band:

It’s one of those things where you’ve kind of got to take it as it goes. I’ve been with my wife for 13 years and we’ve got three kids together. It’s all that she knows and I know, so it’s kind of like it is what it is, there’s nothing I can really do about it. 

The Band Name:

We were sitting around trying to think of a band name back in the early days. Somebody said Korn and we thought it was really such a dumb name. We were like well what if we put the r backwards and do the squiggly writing and then went to our manager and told him “hey we came up with a band name, KoЯn”. He’s like “You can’t name your band Korn”. At the time our manager’s name was Larry and we’re like “Ok well, then we’re going to name our band Larry, you go ahead and pick whatever one you want”.

Recap: Alternative Press Music Awards

Last night in Cleveland, Ohio the inaugural Alternative Press Music Awards paved the way for the future of alternative music. There were monstrous performances from upcoming bands such as Twenty One Pilots, Alternative hotshots All Time Low & A Day To Remember, and rock legends like Slash(yes, from Guns N’ Roses), Joan Jett, and The Misfits. An event like this only has room to grow, meaning that with each year this event will help spotlight this scene and help bring many of its talented bands into mainstream attention(if that is the goal). Just because a band doesn’t make it to the Grammys doesn’t mean that its not deserving of awards and attention. The awards were voted on by fans and here are the results along with the performances:

Awards: 

Best Vocalist (Presented by Tyler Carter of Issues and Craig Owens of Chiodos)

Best Live Band (Presented by members of Crown The Empire, We Are The In Crowd, & The Word Alive)

Guitar Legend Award: 

Live Performances:

Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco performing Frank Sinatra w/Ohio Contemporary Youth Orchestra

Falling In Reverse performs “Gangsta’s Paradise” with Coolio and Tyler Carter of Issues

Twenty One Pilots’ performance includes them climbing up on the rafters and a crowdsurfing drum kit

All Time Low performs with New Found Glory & Vic Fuentes of Pierce The Veil

Machine Gun Kelly

A Day To Remember

Ice T & Body Count

The Misfits

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts feat. Slash

Final performance: Fall Out Boy “The Phoenix”

Well, there you have it! Overall, it was a great music awards show and a promise of something truly great in the years to come. After a few audio/sound engineering problems are fixed, online streaming becomes avaiable and a more accessible channel provides this awards show; then, this will certainly become one powerhouse of an awards show.

Magic Man Interview with Meet The Bands Richie T |

Magic Man Interview with Meet The Bands

If you caught the This Is Gospel tour with Panic! At The Disco in Salt Lake, you probably heard Magic Man for the first time as one of the openers. This five-piece band from Boston sat down with Richie before their first show on the tour and after their pre-show workout. (Seriously though, Justine on synths/keys was leading the guys through a series of push-ups and jumping jacks while we set up. The guys gave up.) Learn about the forming of the band, their Fox Den, and the most surreal moment of being in the band in Richie T's latest interview for Meet The Bands.

Check out the entire interview HERE

Here's a clip from the interview:

— The Fox Den —

Alex: To be fair, an important part of the songwriting phase was first nesting and building our little home studio and making sure that it was a very comfortable and inspiring place. So we spent the first couple months just collecting all sorts of weird things; we called it the fox den. We had taxidermy foxes and…

Justine: If you know where the foxes are now, please call Alex Caplow, they are missing. Not joking. They’re gone.

Alex: Someone stole them, I think someone threw a crazy party when we weren’t there and walked off with the foxes.
