The IMC Magazine Issue 12/February 2016 - Page 28

While I’m new to the Indie Music Coalition Magazine, there may be some of you out there who already know me thru my personal blog (www.supportunsignedartists.blogspot.com) as well as my undying commitment to #indie artists all over the world on social media sites such as Twitter (follow me at @cgnipp).

Those of you who do know me know that my taste in music almost completely runs the musical spectrum. BUT, I do not hide my absolute love for rock n roll.

It frames the foundation for my willingness to help promote #indie artists because my life mimics their art.

I have that rock n roll attitude when it comes to my passion for #indie artists and their craft. Case in point is the band that I bring to you here for my first article in the IMC Magazine.

Allow me to introduce you to Los Angeles, California’s own Love and a .38.

Members Ryan Hudson, vocals; Clark Skelton, drums; Justin Emord, bass and Domo Domaracki, guitar, have brought back rock n roll music the way that I grew up on it. Sure, there’s a whole slew of “modern” rock acts out there on mainstream radio selling tons of records (or digital downloads, as it is today!), but there isn’t a single one of them doing rock n roll like Love and a .38 does rock n roll.

This is the garage band that we all wanted to be in in high school. This is some of the dirtiest rock n roll around today. It’s energetic. It’s gritty. It’s a throwback to the classic rock of the cassette era. It’s a stadium full of lighters saluting the return of a genre that’s been way too dormant for way too long. It’s rock n roll as only Love and a .38 can do it.
