Some big news coming out of the SOR camp.

SOR will be hitting the studio at the beginning of January 2008. Jimmy Nutt of the Nutthouse will be engineering the new record and Jason Isbell will be producing.

New record will include "Head", "Fever Hat", "Judy", "Soft Hands" plus several new songs.

On January 14th the band will hit the road for a 18 day tour of the Southeast with some more dates coming later in the year.

Also, Browan Loller of the 400 Unit will be picking up a few tour dates with SOR at the end of this month/beginning of December.

Bunch of good news for SOR. I'm a big fan of the band. Stay tuned for info on the upcoming tour.



Lauderdale was the first band to kick off WLAY-AM's Muscle Shoals Sound Studio interview and accoustic live show. Hopefully they'll have these archived online or podcasted in the very near future.

Go to WLAY-AM's MySpace and make the request to be able to hear these shows online. See if we can speed up the process.

Here's an article on the showcase:

Station features local musicians | | Times Daily | Florence, AL:

WLAY and Urban Radio Group are joining with Muscle Shoals Sound Studios to provide a venue for local bands and artists to perform and talk about their music, studio owner Noel Webster said. Beginning Wednesday, WLAY FM 92.3 will present 'The Sessions at Muscle Shoals Sound,' an hour-long program featuring local artists such as Lauderdale, Malcolm Singleton, Jordan Denton, Byron Green, Firewood, Dillon Hodges, Sons of Roswell and Jason Isbell.

If nothing else, Webster said, it will give a whole new crop of musicians the opportunity to experience the studio that produced many of the hits that helped the area become known as the 'Hit Recording Capitol of the World.' 'It's great for the museum and for the community,' Webster said. Muscle Shoals Sound Studios is also a working studio and museum. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. 'It will help let people know this little gem is still open.'"

"'It's wonderful,' Webster said. 'We're starting with Lauderdale this Wednesday.'

The group's bassist, Corey Hannah, is looking forward to performing acoustic versions of the band's songs. 'It will be different and fun to strip it all down to the bare essentials,' Hannah said. He said the Shoals music format will expose people to the music of new local groups, especially people who might not have attended shows at local clubs. 'I've had people tell me already they've heard Lauderdale on the air and really like the stuff,' Hannah said. 'It's a great opportunity for the local bands to get the word out.' Rickman said the shows will be recorded at the studio and archived, possibly for release later as podcasts."

One-Third of Popular Songs Refer to Substance Abuse

"Could country music be worse for kids than rock music? If you judge by the number of alcohol and drug references in songs, a new study suggests the answer could be yes. ADVERTISEMENT Researchers who looked at the bestselling songs in several genres from 2005 found that 37 percent of top country songs featured references to drugs or alcohol, compared to just 14 percent of rock songs."

"I can't bring my self to vote in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame elections this year. Here's why: This year's nominees: Afrika Bambaataa, Beastie Boys, Chic, Leonard Cohen, Dave Clark Five, Madonna, John Mellencamp, Donna Summer, the Ventures. See my problem?"

Leonardo painting has coded 'soundtrack'

: "ROME - It's a new Da Vinci code, but this time it could be for real. An Italian musician and computer technician claims to have uncovered musical notes encoded in Leonardo Da Vinci's 'Last Supper,' raising the possibility that the Renaissance genius might have left behind a somber composition to accompany the scene depicted in the 15th-century wall painting."
