  • Ghost Tigers From Beyond: Tiger Army is coming, lock up your caskets

      You should see his underwear. The word "psycho" conjures many images: psycho killer, psycho ex-girlfriend/boyfriend, psychosomatic, psychologist, psychosexual, any number of suffixes will bring about an exponentially larger number of thoughts. When you attach -billy to the prefix, the visuals shift to a highly stylized music genre, which is succinctly defined by the band Tiger Army. The trio made its stage debut in 1996, sharing a stage with nouveau goth/emo/hairspray legends AFI at the infamous Gilman Street Project in Berkeley, Calif. Tiger Army linchpin Nicky 13 formed the band out of Influence 13, bringing band mate Geoff Kresge with him, assembling a crew that has changed throughout the years, but maintains the highly stylized visual and musical aesthetic that is psychobilly. The hair is pompadoured, the arms are heavily tattooed (these guys love the ink), jeans are pegged and the bass is upright. Tiger Army is like the sober, more cynical California cousin of The Reverend Horton Heat's Texas rockabilly legacy. Psychobilly revels in the rock-and-roll lifestyle through ballads about Betty-Page-styled beauties that drive hearses from the graveyard to the chapel and back to the crypt, peeling out in the face of the undeserving dudes-the dudes that ditched them on prom night. The world of the Psychobilly is full of supped-up classic cars, high heels below pencil skirts listening to classics like Social Distortion and the Cramps. While we might miss out on a whole host of musical styles, Bend has actually been host to numerous psychobilly acts throughout the years including the Danish Nekromantix, Sweden's Horrorpops, So-Cal's Chop Tops and, of course, Tiger Army.
  • Down and Dirty: The triumphant return of the Dirtball

      Whose ready to get dirty?The word dirtball conjures images of scuzzy gutter dwellers, grease under the fingernails from their day job. Our Dirtball however, is neither scuzzy, nor greasy. This Dirtball is a rhyme-spitting drummer who is more likely to be dusty from a camping trip than anything else. David Alexander, a.k.a. The Dirtball, started playing drums when he was seven and doesn't seem to have stopped since then. A true Central Oregon native, Alexander named his third major label release Crook County.   "I wanted to bring it home with this album. Crook County is where I raised hell my whole life. We used to party out there all the time," he said.
  • HERstory: More than a phrase: Bend's ladies celebrate their legacy by showing off talent

    The HDCs Jenni Peskin: She's not only one of the minds behind HERstory, she's also a performer.Women's history month is upon us, and what better
      The HDCs Jenni Peskin: She's not only one of the minds behind HERstory, she's also a performer.Women's history month is upon us, and what better time to celebrate women than spring? Fertile, re-birthing, glorious spring! Though we certainly do not forget women for the rest of the year, the National Women's History Project successfully petitioned to have March adopted as Women's History Month in 1987, 10 years after March 8 was designated as International Women's Day. Before the NWHP, even the concept of women's history was unheard of. Throughout the 1970s the group worked hard to promote the study and recognition of women's unique place in the historical record. With this study comes the inevitable scrutiny of the word "history" itself and in this era that has witnessed Politically Correct Bedtime Stories, most people can break it down to read "his story." During the cultural revolution referred to as Women's Liberation, the term "HERstory" was coined to refer to the study of the past in which women play more than a wifely role. This year the NWHP has chosen the theme of "Women's Art: Women's Vision." Women chosen to be honorees by the organization include painters, sculptors and printmakers.
