subdudes podcast Vol. 6, #1 (November 2010)
11/23/2010

Welcome back for another subdudes' podcast! Be sure to visit http://www.subdudes.com for the latest news about the band. You can also find us on Twitter, Facebook and myspace.

This month, we're going to hear two songs songs from rehearsals in John Magnie's basement studio in 1992, two songs from an early subdudes' demo session in 1989, and finally a long-lost demo from a 1991 writing session. First up, Tears of My Own - one of two outtakes from the 2003 Miracle Mule sessions that we've got on tap.

Here's what we've lined up for you:

"Tears of My Own" (unreleased studio recording)
subdudes, one of three outtakes from the Miracle Mule CD recorded in 2004. Keep listening for a second outtake from the sessions later in the program. (The third outtake, Julianne, was featured in the August 2006 podcast.)

"Down in the Valley" (unreleased)
"Your Sweet Kiss" (unreleased)
subdudes, with two songs from a work tape recorded during a rehearsal in John Magnie's basement studio in July 1992. This is likely the first (and possibly only) rendition of these (unfinished) songs (the actual title 'Valley' is unknown) by the band, as they were trying out new material for possible inclusion on the then-upcoming Annunciation CD. Over the past 18 years, Malone has occasionally revived "Your Sweet Kiss," with Tiny Town and for his solo shows. It was one of the songs under consideration for his first solo album, "Soul Heavy."

"Fountains Flow" (unreleased demo)
"Had to Get Away" (unreleased demo)
subdudes, with two songs recorded during demo sessions at Coupe Studios in Boulder, Colo., in 1989. The Coupe Demos were shopped around Los Angeles and eventually led to the band's first contract with Atlantic Records. "Fountains Flow" would be revived (and re-recorded) four or five years later for the "Annunciation" CD, while "Had to Get Away" remains unreleased.

"Cry" (unreleased studio recording)
subdudes, performing another outtake from the "Miracle Mule" sessions, 2004.

"Black Tar Road" (unreleased)
subdudes, from a fairly rough-sounding work tape recorded circa 1991 during writing sessions at Mishawaka, Colo., as the band was preparing material for their third CD, which eventually evolved into "Annunciation." Songs like "Sugar Pie" and "Miss Love" were first attempted during the same weekend of writing sessions, as well as long-abandoned attempts such as "Motown," "Medicine Bow," "Never Felt So Cold" and "Bonehead"!

subdudes podcast Vol. 4, #5 (May 2009) ("The 3 Twins Podcast")
05/23/2009

Welcome to the subdudes' podcast for May 2009! This month we're turning our attention to the 3 Twins, the band formed by John Magnie with Steve Amedee and Tim "Mr. Rutherford" Cook after the 1997 demise of the subdudes.

The 3 Twins was a band of many names. For several years, the band was known as Magpie, but a dispute with another band over the rights to the name prompted them to change their name. They were briefly known as Coot before another dispute arose. The guys finally settled on the 3 Twins. To further confuse matters, the Twins occasionally would perform gospel-only shows, billing themselves as the Prodigal Sons. The lineup, though, was always John Magnie on keyboards, accordion and vocals; Steve Amedee on percussion, drums and vocals; Mr. Rutherford (Tim Cook) on bass and vocals; and generally Jay Clear on guitar.

Be sure to visit subdudes.com for the latest news about the band.

Here's what we've got this month:

"Wyoming Bound"
Magpie, from the CD "10 Trinkets" circa 1999. This version has some very minor differences from the version found a year or so later on the 3 Twins' "Trinkets" CD. A stripped-down recording of this song was included on John's 1998 CD, "Magnie."

"Julianne"
3 Twins, from "Trinkets," released in 2000. The "Trinkets" CD can be purchased by sending a check or money order for $20 to John Magnie, 130 North Sherwood, Fort Collins, CO 80521. Be sure to tell him you heard about the CD on the subdudes podcast.

"Won't Live to See It"
3 Twins featuring Tim "Mr. Rutherford" Cook on vocals, from Steve Strickland's CD, "Reverse Chronology," 2002. Recorded circa 1997.

"Look at the Day"
Magpie, from the CD "10 Trinkets" circa 1999. This is an entirely different recording, in a different key with different instrumentation, than the later recording found on the 3 Twins' "Trinkets" CD.

"Take My Burning Heart" (unreleased)
Magpie, recorded live at Carrollton Station in New Orleans, Dec. 30, 1999, with special guest Anders Osborne on guitar.

"Down the Road Apiece" (unreleased)
3 Twins, recorded live at the Magnolia Cafe in St. Francisville, La., on Feb. 10, 2002, with special guest Dave Easley on pedal steel guitar.

"Country Child" (unreleased)
3 Twins, recorded live at the Little Bear in Evergreen, Colo., on April 22, 2001.

"The Sound of Her Voice" (unreleased)
Magpie, recorded at a cabin in Rist Canyon, Colo., during a writing session, circa 1999.

"Cross On Over (To My Midnight)" (unreleased)
3 Twins, recorded at John Magnie's home studio for a planned follow-up to the Trinkets CD, circa 2001.

"The Rain Song"
Magpie, from the CD "10 Trinkets" circa 1999. This is a completely different recording from the version found on the later version of the 3 Twins' "Trinkets" CD. This recording is in a different key and is more than a minute longer.

"Thank You Jesus" (unreleased)
3 Twins, recorded at John Magnie's home studio for a planned follow-up to the Trinkets CD, circa 2001.

subdudes podcast Vol. 4, #4 (April 2009)
04/23/2009

Welcome to the subdudes' podcast for April 2009! This one has been a long time coming. We've dug DEEP into the archives to bring you a bunch of material you've never heard - some of the oldest known recordings of the guys from their formative years prior to the formation of the subdudes.

We're especially pleased to bring you six exceedingly rare recordings of The Cartoons, the band that featured Tommy Malone, Steve Amedee and Johnny Ray Allen - nearly 10 years before the subdudes - along with lead singer Becky Allen, formerly of the Rhapsodizers. These are the first known recordings of the Cartoons to surface.

We hope you enjoy all these recordings. Be sure to visit subdudes.com for the latest news about the band.

"Peter Pan" (unreleased)
Tommy Malone, and a home recording from circa 1980. Malone could not remember anything about this song or the recording.

John Magnie, from a publishing cassette filed with the U.S. Copyright Office in 1983. Magnie labeled the tape "The John Magnie Songbook, Vol. 2." Possibly recorded live at Tipitina's and possibly with Leigh 'Lil Queenie' Harris on background vocals and perhaps Tommy Malone on guitar.

"The Tattler" (unreleased)
Willis Alan Ramsey with Tommy Malone, recorded on Nov. 19, 1978, in Memphis, Tenn. Malone accompanies Ramsey on electric guitar and harmony vocals.

"Just a Memory" (unreleased)
"Shoot Out the Lights" (unreleased)
The Cartoons, recorded at Ole Man Rivers in Algiers Point, New Orleans, probably in July 1979. The Cartoons -- in some ways the prototype for the subdudes -- was the first band to feature Edgard, La., natives Tommy Malone, Johnny Ray Allen and Steve Amedee playing together. On 'Memory,' that's Malone plus the late Becky Kury on lead vocals; and on 'Lights,' Kury handles lead vocals.

"Can Do Man" (unreleased)
The Works, another demo filed with the U.S. Copyright Office as part of "The John Magnie Songbook, Vol. 2," recorded circa 1983. The Works was a post-Percolators, pre-subdudes band formed by John Magnie that also featured Tommy Malone.

"Poppin' That Shine" (unreleased)
Ed Volker and friends with Steve Amedee, recorded in Ed Volker's kitchen in New Orleans on August 29, 1981. (The band is sometimes listed as "The Druggs.") This recording, featuring Ed Volker of the Radiators on lead vocals plus Steve Amedee on drums and percussion, circulates widely among Rads fans as the "Kitchen Jam."

"My Land" (unreleased)
Tim Cook and Steve Strickland, a demo recorded in Fort Collins around 1980.

"Wild Natives"
L'il Queeenie and the Percolators featuring John Magnie on lead vocals, recorded circa 1981 and released as the flip side of the "My Darlin' New Orleans" 45. The recording also features Tommy Malone on lead guitar.

The Cartoons, from a 1979 rehearsal, possibly without Becky Kury. Tommy Malone on lead vocals.

"Fool a Fool" (unreleased)
"Have Mercy" (unreleased)

The Cartoons, from a 1979 rehearsal, possibly without Becky Kury (Steve Amedee may not be present either). Tommy Malone on lead vocals. On the original cassette, this recording is incomplete.

"Can't Find Me" (unreleased)
L'il Queeenie and the Percolators recorded at the Dream Palace in New Orleans on May 1, 1981. This is a very rare example of Tommy Malone singing lead at a L'il Queenie and the Percolators show.

"Betty" (incomplete, unreleased)
Willis Alan Ramsey with Tommy Malone, recorded on Nov. 19, 1978, in Memphis, Tenn. Malone accompanies Ramsey on guitar and harmony vocals. On the original cassette, this recording is incomplete.

subdudes podcast Vol. 4, #3 (November 2008) ("The Tiny Town Podcast")
11/07/2008

Welcome to the subdudes' podcast for November - or should we say the Tiny Town podcast! Yes, this month we're turning over the entire podcast to the band Tiny Town, which featured subdudes Tommy Malone and Johnny Ray Allen, as well as singer/songwriter Pat McLaughlin and drummer Kenny Blevins (a member of John Hiatt's band who had played with Malone in the Percolators).

Time for another podcast! The subdudes have a brand new two-DVD coming out this month, and if you order by Sept. 15, you get a bonus live, all-acoustic audio CD! Be sure to visit subdudes.com for details.

You might say this podcast is inspired by the news of not only the all acoustic live CD, but the upcoming all-acoustic fall tour. We're featuring all acoustic renditions -- or mostly acoustic -- this month.

Here's what's in store:

"Someday Somehow" (live, unreleased)
The Dudes, recorded at the Bluebird Theater in Denver, Colo., March 29, 2002.

"Angel to Be" (live, alternate version)
the subdudes recorded at the WHPT-FM studio in St. Petersburg, Fla., Nov. 4, 1994, for the "Tampa Bay Unplugged" radio show. (This live performance can be found on the "We Are Each Other's Angels" benefit CD. This recording, however, is from an improved source.)

"Papa Dukie and the Mud People" (unreleased demo)

subdudes podcast Vol. 4, #1 (July 2008)
07/04/2008

We're back, finally, with another podcast. This marks our fourth anniversary doing these -- hope you enjoy them. Be sure to show your support by going to see the guys when they come to your hometown (http://www.subdudes.com/tour.html) and by buying their music.

Here's what's in store this month:

"Train Train" (live, unreleased)
the subdudes, recorded live at Stephen Talkhouse on Long Island, N.Y., on June 5, 2003. This is a song that, to date, has never been recorded by the band in the studio. This may, in fact, be the only live performance of the song. It was under consideration for the "Miracle Mule" CD.

"Big River" (live, unreleased)
the subdudes and Pat McLaughlin knock out this cool cover of the Johnny Cash classic during a show in Columbia, Mo., on April 20, 1994. McLaughlin, who opened for the subdudes, joins them on stage, playing mandolin and singing lead on one verse.

"Don't Let 'Em" (live, unreleased)
Tiny Town, recorded live in San Francisco on New Year's eve as 1997 turned to 1998. Tiny Town, who were opening for the Radiators, nail this subdudes classic.

"Sarita" (live, unreleased)
The Subdudes, recorded last year (May 19) at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas.

"Move Too Fast" (studio demo, unreleased)
Steve Strickland and the Big O, recorded at a Kansas studio last year. Strickland, the co-writer of Sarita with Tim Cook, also wrote this one with Cook around 1985.

"Everybody" (live, unreleased)
the subdudes performed this song on their first West Coast tour in 1990. This recording is from Slim's in San Francisco, April 7th. "Everybody" has never been released, though we've featured studio recordings previously on the podcasts.

"When the Show is Through" (rehearsal, unreleased)
Continental Drifters, from a rehearsal in New Orleans around 1986. This song, featuring John Magnie on lead vocals, is otherwise unreleased. The band at the time included Magnie, Tommy Malone on lead guitar and harmony vocals, Johnny Ray Allen on rhythm guitar and harmony vocals, probably Jimmy Messa on bass, possibly Gary Hirstius on rhythm guitar, and probably either Carlo Nuccio or Barry Flippen on drums.

"Cry No More" (live, unreleased)
L'il Queenie and the Percolators, featuring Tommy Malone on lead vocals. We're not sure of the actual title of this song. It was recorded during a show on May 1, 1981, at the Dream Palace in New Orleans, about five months after Tommy Malone joined the band. Leigh Harris and John Magnie help out on vocals. Pardon the mediocre sound quality, it's from a fan recording.

"Bye Bye" (unreleased alternate version)
the subdudes, from an early cassette tape of studio recordings, recorded probably in late 1987 or early 1988. One side of the tape featured the "subdudes mix" of the songs, while the second side featured the "Continental Drifters mix" of the exact same set of songs. This version is from the Drifters side. (As a side note, the version of "Got You on His Mind" from the Musician Magazine "Best of the BUBS (Best Unsigned Bands)" CD may be from this session.) This features the original lineup of the subdudes: Tommy Malone, John Magnie, Steve Amedee and Johnny Ray Allen.

Excerpts of music featured in the background:
"Sarita," Steve Strickland, from his 1994 solo album, "What You See is What you Get"
"When the Show is Through," Continental Drifters (possibly only John Magnie, Johnny Ray Allen and Tommy Malone), from a band practice session, circa 1985-1986 (different from the version played during the podcast)
"Bye Bye," from the subdudes' "Lucky" album, 1991

subdudes podcast Vol. 3, #5 (March 2008) ("The Covers Podcast")
03/01/2008

Here it is March already, and that means it's time for another podcast. Nearly every month we've thrown in at least one cover song performed by the subdudes, but this month we're dedicating the entire podcast to the music of others, as performed by members of the subdudes.

Here's what's in store:

"Freedom for the Stallion" (live, unreleased)
The Trio, featuring guests Tommy Malone and Dave Malone. The Trio, which is a misnomer since this is actually a quartet, is anchored by drummer Johnny Vidacovich and bassist George Porter Jr. This recording of the Allen Toussaint tune (recorded by everyone from Lee Dorsey to the Hues Corporation to Three Dog Night) is from a Dec. 4, 2004, show at the Maple Leaf in New Orleans.

"I Believe to my Soul" (live, unreleased)
The Subdudes and The Radiators recorded this Ray Charles classic at Tipitina's in New Orleans on Oct. 22, 2004. The third set of this live show indeed featured all members of both the subdudes and the Radiators on stage together - listen for all the different guitars (Tommy Malone, Dave Malone and Camille Baudoin) plus both John Magnie and Ed Volker on keyboards (organ as well as electric piano). It was quite the rock 'n' roll orchestra!

"You Got Me Hummin'" (live, unreleased)
The Subdudes, Leigh "L'il Queenie" Harris plus many if not all the members of The Radiators. This is from a much earlier show than the last song -- a tribute on Nov. 25, 1992, also at Tipitina's, to former Rhapsodizers and Cartoons vocalist Becky Kury, who had died about 10 years earlier. During the final set of the show, the subdudes called on stage a number of friends who performed songs associated with Kury. Other guests present during the show who may be performing on this song were Clark Vreeland (guitar), Carlo Nuccio (drums) and Jim Scheurich (drums). This Sam & Dave song features brothers Tommy & Dave Malone plus L'il Queenie on vocals.

"The Happy Song" (live, unreleased)
The Subdudes, recorded way back on Oct. 28, 1989 -- yet another recording from Tipitina's. This cool tune was originally recorded by Otis Redding in 1968. This one had been part of Magnie & Malone's repertoire for years -- they used to do a killer version of it with a horn section in the Percolators in the early '80s.

"If You Want me to Stay" (live, unreleased)
Johnny Vidacovich Trio featuring George Porter Jr. (later known as simply The Trio) and guest Tommy Malone. Another Tipitina's recording, from July 22, 2004. Tommy Malone nails this Sly & the Family Stone song, first recorded in 1973. And check out George Porter's bass solo. Wow!

"Who's Been Talking" (live, unreleased)
Magpie, later known as the 3 Twins, featuring subdudes John Magnie, Steve Amedee and Tim Cook, plus guest Anders Osborne. Recorded at Carrollton Station in New Orleans, Dec. 30, 1999. John Magnie started his career playing in blues bands, and it's not uncommon for him to pull out blues chestnuts. This Chester Burnett, aka Howlin' Wolf, classic was first recorded in 1960.

"Tired of Being Alone" (live, unreleased)
The Subdudes, recorded at the Sports Page in late 1988 in Fort Collins, Colo. This is one of the earliest live recordings of the subdudes, and it features a nice saxophone solo from "Teddy" -- whose last name is lost to the haze for now. Thanks to the fan in the Far East for this recording. This song was originally recorded by Al Green, of course, and was featured on the subdudes' second studio CD, "Lucky."

subdudes podcast Vol. 3, #4 (February 2008)
01/30/2008

Welcome back to another podcast... And Happy Mardi Gras! Carnival arrives early this year - Feb. 6 - one of the earliest Fat Tuesdays ever. We have a special Carnival treat at the end, so stay tuned!

Meanwhile, we've got some cool tunes again this month, including these:

"Each and Every Day" (live, unreleased)
John Magnie, recorded solo, opening up for the Radiators at the Starlight Theatre in Fort Collins, Feb. 8, 1998. This song was originally released on his 1998 CD titled simply "Magnie."

"The Tattler" (live, unreleased)
Tommy Malone with Peter Holsapple. This is a song generally associated with Ry Cooder, featuring Tommy on vocals, guitar and I think dobro. Peter Holsapple of the DB's joins Tommy on mandolin. This was recorded during a very intimate gig at the Old Point Bar in Algiers Point, in New Orleans, on Oct. 10, 2001.

"Do as I Do" (tentative title, unreleased)
the subdudes, from a rehearsal in John Magnie's basement studio, recorded July 1992. Like the song Going Up the Mountain featured a few months ago from the same session, this is likely the first (and possibly only) rendition of this song (the actual title is unknown), as the band was trying out new material for possible inclusion on the then-upcoming Annunciation CD. Another fly-on-the-wall experience.

"The Rock" (live, unreleased)
Magpie, later known as the 3 Twins, featuring Tim Cook on lead vocals and John Magnie on harmony vocals. This song, which the band had heard performed by Etta James, also features Anders Osborne on lead guitar. Recorded live at Carrollton Station, New Orleans, Dec. 30, 1999.

"South of I-10"
Sonny Landreth, from his CD of the same title. Listen closely and you can hear Tommy Malone on harmony vocals. Be sure to visit Sonny's web site at www.sonnylandreth.com.

"Hell at Home" (live, unreleased)
Sonny Landreth with The Dudes. This is from a show by The Dudes shortly before they resumed calling themselves "the subdudes." They were joined at the end of the show by Sonny Landreth, who performed several songs with them. Recorded live at Tipitina's, New Orleans, Jan. 22, 2003. The studio version of this song can be found on Sonny Landreth's CD, "The Road We're On."

"Carnival Time" (live, unreleased)
the subdudes, featuring Jimmy Messa on lead vocals. This Mardi Gras classic (originally recorded by Al "Carnival Time" Johnson) was performed during a show last year at Southport Hall, just across the Orleans-Jefferson Parish line, in the community of Jefferson. This is the perhaps the first and so far only time that bassman Jimmy Messa has sung lead at a subdudes show! Recorded Feb. 16, 2007.

Excerpts of music featured in the background:
"You Can't Stop a Tattler, pt 2," Washington Phillips, the original version of "The Tattler," recorded in 1929. From the CD "The Key to the Kingdom."
"The Rock," performed by George Jones, from his CD "The Rock: Stone Cold Country," released in 2001.
"Carnival Time," performed by Al "Carnival Time" Johnson, originally released in February 1960. Read about it here.

subdudes podcast Vol. 3, #3 (January 2008)
01/07/2008

Happy New Year! We're glad to be back with another podcast. Hope you enjoy it.

We're digging way back, focusing on two pre-subdudes bands: the Jazz Poetry Group and the Oolites! Here's what's in store this month:

"Waterfall Me"
Ron Cuccia & The Jazz Poetry Group, from the group's second album, "Music from the Big Tomato," released in 1981 and featuring John Magnie on lead vocals on some songs. This song features music written by Magnie with lyrics by poet Ron Cuccia. Joining Magnie on the recording are members of Astral Project and the Youth Inspirational Choir.

"Waterfall Me" (unreleased)
"Woman" (unreleased)
The Oolites. These were recorded circa 1983-1984 at Tommy Malone's home studio. The Oolites were John Magnie (keyboards and vocals), Tommy Malone (guitar and vocals), Butch McDade (drums) and Ricky Cortes (bass). McDade had been a member of the Amazing Rhythm Aces, while Cortes had played with Magnie and Malone during their Percolators days. Tommy sings lead on "Waterfall Me," while John sings lead on "Woman," a song by Clark Vreeland that Magnie often performed in the early '80s.

"Lose Again"
Clark Vreeland, from his "Sportsman's Paradise" CD released in 2006. Vreeland wrote this song (and one or two others on the CD) with former subdude Johnny Ray Allen, who also plays bass on the recording. Joining them are Carlo Nuccio on drums, David Torkanowsky on keyboards and Theresa Andersson on vocals. Vreeland, a member of the Rhapsodizers back in the mid-70s, produced the subdudes' Primitive Streak CD. Be sure to visit his web site at clarkvreeland.com.

"On the Lam" (unreleased)
"Never See Me Crying" (unreleased)
"Need Somebody" (unreleased)
The Oolites, demos from circa 1983-1984. See above. Magnie sings lead on "On the Lam," Malone sings "Never See Me Crying," and they both sing "Need Somebody," which they would later revisit on the first subdudes album.

"My Darlin' New Orleans"
Ron Cuccia & The Jazz Poetry Group, featuring Leigh "L'il Queenie" Harris on lead vocals and recorded live at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, July 13-14, 1979, and released on the group's first self-titled LP. A few years later, L'il Queenie and the Percolators would re-record the song, which became something of a hit around New Orleans. But this is the original version, which also features John Magnie on keyboards and background vocals, Ron Cuccia on background vocals, Charles Neville on sax, Ramsey McLean on bass and Ricky Sebastian on drums.

Excerpts of music featured in the background:
"Jazztown," Ron Cuccia & the Jazz Poetry Group, featuring John Magnie and Leigh "L'il Queenie" Harris on vocals, from "Ron Cuccia & the Jazz Poetry Group" (vinyl)
"Fastfood," as above, but Cuccia on vocals
"All Tore Up," The Rhapsodizers, recorded in New Orleans at the Electric Ballroom, Sept. 13, 1976, from a live, unreleased radio broadcast.
"It Hurts Inside," Clark Vreeland (with Johnny Ray Allen on co-lead vocals), from his "Sportsman's Paradise" CD, released in 2006.
"Never See Me Crying," John Magnie, from his "Now Appearing" album, released circa 1986
"Need Somebody," by the subdudes, from their first self-titled CD.

subdudes podcast Vol. 3, #2 (October 2007)
09/29/2007

Welcome back to another podcast. The band is getting some nice reviews for its new CD, Street Symphony. If you haven't already, be sure to pick up a copy! What are you waiting for?

As always, we've got some great music in store this month, including some surprises. We talk to Tommy Malone about the new CD, and we're going to dig deep into the vaults for some songs that have never been heard outside the band. Here's what all we've got in store for you:

"Praise You, Lord" (unreleased)
John Magnie and the Prodigal Sons, featuring Steve Amedee and Tim Cook. This is an unreleased studio recording by the 3 Twins, performing here under the name they often used when they performed gospel songs. We had a request for some "gospel 'dudes," so here you go.

"Absolutely"
the subdudes, from the new CD, Street Symphony. Another beautiful love song from Tommy and the boys.

"It's Like This" (unreleased, rehearsal and live)
Continental Drifters (excerpt), followed by the subdudes. The Drifters' recording is from a rehearsal circa 1985-1986 and features Johnny Ray Allen on lead vocals. The subdudes' version is from a live recording at Tipitina's in New Orleans in June 1987 and features John Magnie on lead vocals.

"Eleezah"
Mollie O'Brien, from her "Big Red Sun" CD. This recording features John Magnie on accordion, harmonica (!) and Hammond B-3 organ. This Magnie composition is unavailable elsewhere. Be sure to check out Mollie's web site at www.mollieobrien.com.

"Had to Get Away" (live, unreleased)
the subdudes, recorded live at Tipitina's on Oct. 28, 1989. This song was demo'ed for possible inclusion on the first album, but has never been released.

"Fair Weather Friend" (unreleased live version)
"Poverty" (unreleased live version)
the subdudes, with two songs recorded live at The Ark in Ann Arbor, Mich., on Sept. 10, 2007. The studio recording of "Fair Weather Friend" can be found on the new CD, Street Symphony, and "Poverty" can be found on Annunciation. Special thanks to Fred Ellert for the timely live recording.

"Going up on the Mountain" (unreleased rehearsal)
the subdudes, from a band rehearsal held in John Magnie's basement studio, July 1992. This is likely the first (and possibly only) rendition of this song (the actual title is unknown), as the band was trying out new material for possible inclusion on the then-upcoming Annunciation CD. The lyrics are still in flux, and the band is feeling its way around the song. The song was apparently abandoned - another example of how the subdudes would try out then put aside songs that other musicians would give their left legs for. Consider this a fly-on-the-wall experience.

"Fountain of Youth"
the subdudes, a rocking, up-tempo song from the new CD, "Street Symphony."

Excerpts of music featured in the background:
"Praise You Lord," John Magnie and the Prodigal Sons, alternate version, from privately released CD "Gabriel's Horn"
"Street Symphony," subdudes, from the CD "Street Symphony"
"The Right Thing," Mollie O'Brien, with John Magnie, Tim Cook and Steve Amedee, from her CD "Things I Gave Away"

subdudes podcast Vol. 2, #7 (March 2007)
03/11/2007

Welcome to the March 2007 podcast. This month we scoured the vaults to bring you some live recordings and some demos that few have heard in nearly 20 years. We also visit with Tommy Malone, who looks back on the band's early days.

Yes, we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of the subdudes: it was on March 16, 1987, that they performed together for the first time. So raise a toast to them this month, because while we're celebrating the past, they're in Nashville working on a new CD.

Here's what we've got in store this month:

"One Time" (live) (5:21)
"Can't Find Me" (live, unreleased song) (3:26)
"Deepest Thoughts" (live) (4:21)
the subdudes, recorded live at Tipitina's, New Orleans, June 15, 1987. This show was recorded three months after the band first got together. This is the earliest known live recording of the band.

"Oh Girl" (live, unreleased cover song) (4:49)

"Laughing at Birds" (demo) (3:54)

This month's podcast would've been impossible without the generosity of Tommy Malone.

What's a podcast?
Think of it as a subdudes radio program ... combined with TIVO or a VCR that's set to capture the broadcast. The podcast is free, and so is the software.

No, you don't have to have an Ipod. Or even an mp3 player.

But, you do need a high-speed Internet connection. The files are usually 25-40 MB, which takes only a few minutes to download with a basic DSL or cable Internet hookup. With a decent connection, you can also stream the music without downloading.

How does it work?
You use software like iTunes (Windows or Mac) or Juice (formerly called Ipodder, in Windows, Mac, Linux formats) to subscribe to the subdudes' podcast (our podcast address is www.subdudes.com/rss/rss.xml). If you have itunes, you can click here and you'll be taken to the page where you can subscribe at no charge. Once you've subscribed, the software automatically knows when we post a new podcast (roughly once a month), and it delivers it to your computer, where you can move it to an Ipod or other mp3 player or just listen to it right then. Kind of like a radio VCR or TIVO.

What if I just want to listen to it right now?
You can do that and not deal with the other software. Just click the "stream" icon next to the podcast installment you wish to hear. It should start playing momentarily through your computer speakers. The difference is that you won't get the updated podcasts automatically, you'll have to just check back here in a month or so.

Can you help me set this up?
Further explaining podcasting, troubleshooting and/or helping you download and configure software is beyond the scope of subdudes.com. Here are some links that might help:
