Introducing the latest addition of By the Light of the Stereo

I'm thankful to announce the latest addition to By the Light of the Stereo is my long time friend and fellow music lover Bob Bemrose. Having recently returned to the Portland area Bob is a lover of Blues, Rock, early 90's Hip Hop and Kereoke. I'm excited for him to bring his love of music and great humor to BLS and look forward to his additions.
He's got great ideas and is already writing some new columns for BLS. Two that I'm particularly excited about are:

Raiders of the Bargain Bin, where he'll be bringing his down and dirty reviews of found treasures from clearance racks and used bins from record stores near and far.


The Twisted 10, that will focus on unique musical topics seen through Bob's wonderfully unorthodox perspective.

It's great to have my partner in crime joining me once again for yet another adventure and hope that you followers of BLS will enjoy the new blood too.

The bare bones garage rock of Crushed Out is an energetic whirlwind of building momentum. Ripe with gain lovely guitar and wildly driving beats, their music has all the groove and attitude of Mick Jagger's hips in 1963. Based out of New York this duo should not be underestimated. Powerful and sassy, Frank Hoier and Moselle Spiller make fun sexy songs. Not just another White Stripes,Crushed Out has a classic feel that tributes both two part blues and the Endless Summer sway of 50's beach rock.
Luckily Portland will get the chance to see them live this Thursday, January 31st at Mississippi Studios. Joining them on stage is the thick sultry go-go rock of Portland's own Summer Cannibals and the broad-sky highway rock of the Desert Noises. Combined this should be an awesome night of great music and a wonderful way to get your engines revved up for the weekend. So get your party shoes on and don't forget to support the music with a few buck at the merch booth.

So come and check them out.
