the Lucys – Live on WKDU October 1997

Jesse Jameson from the Lucys Live on Jackie’s WKDU show – October 1997
In early ’96, Jameson began recording songs as The Lucys, playing both guitar and drums. Guitarist Joe Kim (who played with Jameson in the group Pale) and bassist George Loving filled out the group. Still searching for the right sound, Jameson recorded a few songs playing all of the instruments himself. More recently he recruited onetime Moped member Bret Tobias to play drums and Joey Sweeney on bass. All three configurations can be heard on Anselmo. (City Paper)

Dumptruck – 23 East Cabaret 4-11-1989

Dumptruck, formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1983 by guitarists and singers Seth Tiven and Kirk Swan, is – for lack of a better turn of a phrase – the band that wouldn’t die. Coming quickly out of the gate in the college radio heyday that was the early 1980’s, critics and fans alike responded to Tiven and Swan’s earliest efforts, 1984’s D is for Dumptruck and 1986’s Positively, with rave reviews. A following quickly grew, but the wear and tear of years on the road led to Swan deciding to part ways with the band in late ’86. Tiven, faced with calling it quits or carrying on did the only thing he knew to do – soldier on. Now based out of Austin, Texas and with a rotating collection of steady bandmates, Tiven has released four studio albums in the years since. From 1987’s critically acclaimed for the country to 2001’s muscular Lemmings Travel to the Sea, Tiven has stayed true to his original muse – powerfully personal songs floating on an endless wave of driving guitar. The new record, Wrecked (2018), is more of the same with, perhaps, a touch more anger and a lot more of the wisdom that comes with having kept Dumptruck alive and vital for all of these years.

The Cramps – Live @ Grendel’s Lair 10/2/78

The Cramps unique sound synthesizes classic rockabilly, touches of psychedelia, and lyrical fare devoted mostly to monster movies and sleazy sex into an infectious, gloriously tasteless conglomeration of American trash culture. They were founded in New York around 1976 by Lux Interior (born Erick Purkhiser in Stow, Ohio) and the guitarist Poison Ivy (Kristy Wallace).

Yeezhak (ЇЖАК)

If you are in Philly and want to keep track of what is going on to Protest the Russian invasion of Ukraine join Philly Stands with Ukraine fb group.

YEEZHAK is a Philly-based rock group, which performs in Ukrainian and English. Musical influences include American indie, kiwi-rock, alternative noise and classic Stones.

The Ukrainian-langauge texts featured in YEEZHAK songs come from poems written by contemporary Ukrainian poets as well as from Ukrainian folklore.

YEEZHAK

Mark Andryczyk – guitars, vocals
Yaryna Yakubyak – keyboards, vocals, percussion
Roger Bodine – bass
Christian Hayes – drums

YEEZHAK in 2022 is part of an Ukrainian-American music project, which has existed for over 25 years, uniting musicians in the US and Ukraine in creative collaborations.

History

Phase 1

YEEZHAK  was formed by Mark Andryczyk (Raze, Underraga, Kavune) in 1995 as a project involving musicians from Philly and Lviv, Ukraine.  In 1996 Andryczyk recorded the Album Sveter (Sweater) at Galvox Studios in Lviv together with musicians from the legendary Lviv rock groups Mertvyi Piven (Dead Rooster [Oleh “John” Suk, Yaryna Yakubyak, Roman Chaika, Misko Barbara, Liubko Futorskyi]) and Plach Yeremii (Jeremiah’s Cry [Taras Chubai, Sashko Kamenetskyi]).  Music for the album was written by Mark Andryczyk while the words belong to contemporary Ukrainian poets Viktor Neborak and Yuri Andrukhovych, as well as 1930s poet Bohdan-Ihor Antonych, among others. The laregly acoustic album, prominently featuring viola and sopilka (fife), was presented at live performances in Ukraine.

In 1998 the second Yeezhak album Vulkanizatsiia (Vulcanization), presenting a harder, noisier sound, was recorded at Lviv’s Studio Leva with the support of the Dzyga Art Association.  Featuring the same musicians as on the Sveter recording, plus Vulkanizatsiia’s producer Andriy Piatakov on drums for one track, and the poetry of Ivan Malkovych, Kostiantyn Moskalets, Ihor Rymaruk, Yuri Tarnawsky (The New York Group) and Ivan Franko, the album was launched with several concerts in Ukraine.

Phase 2

Mark Andryczyk and Yaryna Yakubyak married in 1999 and moved to Toronto leading to a break in YEEZHAK’s activity for several years.  In the summer of 2005 Andrycyzk gathers YEEZHAKs’ past members and, with the addition of drummer Andriy Nadolskyi (Plach Yeremii), records the EP KhmariPara (CloudSteamPair) at Studio Leva in Lviv and at Taras Chubai’s studio in Kyiv. Guitarist Marian Prystupa (Faino) performed with YEEZHAK at shows in Ukraine that year.

Phase 3

In 2007, Mark and Yaryna moved back to Philly and began playing with Mark’s former bandmates Roger Bodine (Doomed to Obscurity, Underraga, Grisly Fiction) and Christian Hayes (Kavune, Father Jack and His Idle Hours, Nature Films).  The new YEEZHAK line-up premiered at a 2008 show at the Ukrainian League of Philadelphia.

YEEZHAK performed acoustically at a poetry event for Viktor Neborak (2005), an evening memorializing the poet Ihor Rymaruk (Shevchenko Scientific Society, NYC, 2008) and at a gathering of prominent Ukrainian-American writers and musicians (Cornelia Street Cafe, NYC, 2009). YEEZHAK also perfomed acoustically at presentations of Mark Andryczyk’s monograph at Dzyga (Lviv, 2015) and at the Ukrainian Museum (NYC, 2015 ).

This latest line-up of YEEZHAK perfomed in 2012 in Philly (with Dora Shoturma of Maiden Creek Lodge lending vocals) and then set off to Ukraine for a concert at the Dzyga Art Association in Lviv in July 20012.  Original YEEZHAK member Taras Chubai joined the band on stage at the Dzyga show, playing viola.

In June 2017 this latest line-up of YEEZHAK  performed at a concert with Kharkiv, Ukraine’s Serhiy Zhadan and Sobaky v Kosmosi (Dogs in Outerspace) at the Ukrainian League of Philadelphia. Later that summer, on August 18th, YEEZHAK performed at the Slavic Block Party at the Maas Building in Philly, joined by Taras Chubai on viola. In 2019, Mark and Yaryna performed acoustic sets entitled YEEZHAK: Holky Unplugged at concerts  in Ukraine (August 18th at Khrystofor in Lviv and August 21st at Vagabundo in Ivano-Frankivsk). At concerts in 2012 and beyond, YEEZHAK performs songs from all three YEEZHAK recordings as well as new songs that will be part of a (hopefully) future album entitled Crossing Dunai.

N.B. Past YEEZHAK members are known to occasionally participate, unannounced, at YEEZHAK concerts worldwide.
