About Jamie (14 Articles)
When you follow the smoke to the riff-filled land, odds are you will find Jamie on his infinite quest for some excellent music, usually down the traditional pathways of heavy/doom metal but increasingly leaning toward the retro climes of the ‘new classic rock.’ The soundtrack, however, is a healthy mixture of music not limited to the riff. Guided by cultural thought, the Doors, alcohol, and Tom Waits, Jamie spends a lot of his time contemplating modern life and moaning about how clean and pretty rock music has become.
