Raggy Monster

Editor’s Note: The folks at Go-DIY Records were kind enough to post a note that TDMB welcomed new music. Several bands have sent me links and samples. My plan is to post the music in the order in which it came in and to present all or some of what the band (or its management) submits.

Next up is Raggy Monster. The song is Cannibals and below that is the profile the band submitted.

 

Raggy Monster is an Indie Rock band based out of West Palm Beach, Florida. After playing over 100 shows, releasing their debut album and music video, Raggy is now preparing for their first East Coast tour.

The story behind the name goes back to Billy’s early childhood: Long ago, during arts and crafts time, Billy created Raggy Monster. He was his imaginary best friend/bodyguard throughout Kindergarden. Who would have guessed that more than a decade later this simple drawing would be the inspiration for the band’s name.

Nowadays Raggy Monster (The band) has been extremely busy playing shows from Miami to Orlando, and has already begun working on their next album, which promises to be “twice as good as the first.”

Reading Music

The stories of the great bands and musicians are fascinating. Musicians as a group are brilliant, but often troubled. The combination of creativity and drama makes for great reading.

Here are some books to check out.

Duke Ellington brought class, sophistication and style to jazz which, until that point, was proudly unpolished and raucous. His story is profound. The author, Terry Teachout, also wrote "Pops," the acclaimed bio of Louis Armstrong. Click here or on the image.

The Grateful Dead don't get enough credit for the profound nature of its lyrics. Many of the band's songs are driven by a deep and literate Americana ("I'm Uncle Sam/That's who I am/Been hidin' out/In a rock and roll band" and "Majordomo Billy Bojangles/Sit down and have a drink with me/What's this about Alabama/Keeps comin' back to me?").

David Dodd's exhaustive study tells the story, song by song. Click here or on the image.
