Non Radio Friendly
Non Radio Friendly
What used to be songs of having fun, and being stupid, were replaced with songs about bad relationships, and losing the love of your life. Some truly dark songs, and edgy lyrics, put to catchy and poppy music. The second in command was Rob Johnson, on his trusty Fender Mustang Bass Guitar. Rob was good at mixing it up, and always brought the songs to life.
He delivered some great Jazz, and Funk, in Non Radio Friendly. There were several drummers in the band Jared, Little Bitch, and Mark Hammill. Mark spent the most amount of time in Non Radio Friendly. Non Radio Friendly played many a show at clubs in Dallas - Ft. Worth and Denton, like Red Blood Club, Darkside Lounge, Curtain Club, J & J's Pizza, Bar of Soap, Lone Star Country Club, Monkey Bar, 6th Street Live (Aka.
Lola's), Froggy Bottoms, and many others. The shows were always a blast, and the crowds were always entertained. On a side note, Chad Riley owner of Garage Sale Records, was also responsible for putting together the Benefit CD for Lance Hahn. Let's Do It For Lance! He assembled 30 bands from around the globe, to cover there favorite Cringer or J Church song.
Not to mention, he also brought 5 Record Labels together, to put out the CD. A year of his life, to create something for a Musician who had touched his life, and had a profound effect on his life. All proceeds from the CD, went to Lance, for his Medical Bills. Sadly, a few months after the CD Released, Lance slipped into a coma.
A week later he passed away. Liberty, Lance's Fiance used the remainder of the money raised from the Benefit CD, to have Lance cremated, and flown home to his family in Hawaii, to be with his Mother. Lance was a true pioneer, and his loss was devastating to the Punk World. People barely had time to recover from the Death of Jim Maclean of Sewer Trout, and Elmer, a few years before.
Liberty did say, Lance was listening to the Benefit CD, the day he slipped into the coma. He kept taking his headphones off between songs and saying, "They took my songs, and made them better." Every band that contributed to the CD, poured there hearts and soul into the song they covered, and made it there own. There has been much praise over this CD. Read more on Last.fm.
