GROOVY NOODLES

THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NUMBER 88

JANUARY 6, 2023

TREASON NOODLES

– It’s great to be back in the swing of things with our weekly GROOVY NOODLES offering. Thank you all for sticking with us! The best is yet to come.

– With the Christmas break over,  Bobby is back in the classroom, being the Western hemisphere’s greatest elementary school music teacher (according to Andy).

– The two week hiatus from working on GROOVY NOODLES enabled more time to be devoted to mixing the band’s next album, “WITHOUT A TRIBE.” It was a very productive two weeks.

– Andy did more than his usual share of voiceover work during the hiatus and also mixed two songs for clients – something the boys hope to be doing more of for other artists.

– HUGE THANKS to all of you who participated in our survey regarding a possible “ELM TREASON MEMBERSHIP” site. We will be asking more of our fans what they think via email and through our regular Facebook page over the next week or two. Our goal? We’re looking to generate a reliable income stream while offering unique, desirable and exclusive content. Just looking to stay afloat!  If you’re interested in participating in our quick little survey ahead of time, here’s the link –> SURVEY <——–

Otherwise, look out for an email and a Facebook post. 

– We’re thinking of adding an ARTIST SPOTLIGHT section to this newsletter, whereas music makers can submit a link to an original song and hopefully get some exposure for their work. (We’ll come up with a better name than “artist spotlight.” 🙂

OTHER NOODLES

Iron Maiden was honored with their own set of British postage stamps. There will be twelve in the set.

Neal Doughty, founding keyboardist of REO Speedwagon and the only member to appear on all of the band’s albums, announced his retirement from touring. He was the band for 55 years.

– Also this past week, Myles Goodwin, leader and only remaining founding member of April Wine, announced he’ll retire from touring in March.

Earth, Wind & Fire drummer Fred White died last Sunday at 67. He played on hits like “September,” “Shining Star” and “Let’s Groove.”

Iggy Pop’s latest album “Every Loser” has dropped.

Glad you made good progress on the album.
My go to uplifting song is by Blue October. It’s called Inner Glow.
I also love Elm Treason’s Fork of My Life for that purpose.

Curtis J White

Folks Like Them “Don’t Need a Thing”

Matthew Nielsen

River Road by Crystal Gayle. It was the song that my late grandmother always used to play for me, even into adulthood. Sometimes she’d leave it as a voicemail. It was definitely our own thing.

There are probably a thousand different songs capable of that for me. Something I would have never thought, I have YouTube music premium on this phone, I pick something, I started up and it just goes and goes and goes and only very occasionally I’ll skip something it plays LOL I love it. Reminds me of the little transistor radio I used to carry around only no commercials and when I lose the signal I go to download and it’s back on again, well ya AAA !!

Mark Sheriff

I’m the man by Joe Jackson has a killer base line that can’t help but lift you back up

Kim Groff

Looking forward to adding the new album on Keltstachemusic.com!!!

Lee Roach

When I’m having a bad day I always crank up a song called fort misery by a couple of great guys called Elm Treason. Maybe you’ve heard of them. I just can’t listen to that one and stay in a bad mood. Peace, love, and Elm Treason!!

welcome back! You were missed but if it gave you a break and you could work on new album then I am all for it! So, bad day and want to scream or throw something, It’s just one of those days, Limpbiscuit; need to lower blodd pressure and musically meditate, Soulshine, The Allman Bros.; and just need to feel all of the ‘feels’, The whole album Transmission by Tea PartyBUT if I had to pick one and only one it would be Soulshine!

David Foulk

Although if I’m doing something listening to music and Iggy and the stooges shake a feel comes on I get up on that. Got that album for free when I was 14 years old just by being near the radio station listening to my transistor radio

Shake appeal*

Cliff Aldrich

So many songs hard to pick a favorite. Listening to The Ocean- Zeppelin. Foo fighters are always good.

Brian

Unusual but the first song that came to my mind was “Psychotic Reaction” by garage rock band Count Five. Always reach for VOL 10
that song blew out the single speaker on my AM van radio in 1977-
–10 years after it came out – still makes me forget EVERYTHING else around me or in my thoughts.

Brian

My fav number is– 5318008 – – punch that on your 8-bit display calculator.
comment – – ? if explanation needed. +1 if you know – LOL
