Clint Black: With 'Emotion' in Newport

November 05, 1994|MIKE BOEHM | TIMES STAFF WRITER

Country music star Clint Black stops at the Wherehouse in Newport Beach for a meet-and-greet session to promote his new album, "One Emotion," today from 2 to 4 p.m. The store is at Fashion Island, 453 Newport Center Drive. (714) 644-6993.

Also rising in the country universe, albeit still on a somewhat less lofty level than the platinum-selling Black, is Stanley Wycoff, the decidedly skewed auteur of the progressive-country studio band Bierce in L.A.

Wycoff, who lives in Long Beach and records for the Seal Beach-based Rococo Records, was the subject of an Oct. 26 spot on the national cable broadcast TNN Country News.

With sidekick Chris Gaffney beside him, Wycoff expounded upon the "bleak, dismal view of the world" that emerges on his deliciously sour new album, "Vale of Tears." The segment also featured snippets of two Bierce in L.A. videos, "Ax Murderers" and "Do Some Don'ts."

NO FEAR: Bazooka shows it isn't superstitious by planning two performances on the 13th of this month--an in-store show at 2 p.m. at the Tower Lab in Costa Mesa, and a 10 p.m. nightcap (with Standard Fruit) at the Firecracker Lounge in Anaheim. The jazzily improvisational, avant-rock trio's second album, "Blowhole," has just been released on SST. . . . Greg Jacobs, the San Diego-based band manager who got his start in the rock business booking shows for Big Drill Car, has compiled a 146-page paperback of indie-rock bands' brief, in-their-own-words accounts of exploits and mishaps on the low-budget touring circuit. Titled "Hell on Wheels," it includes tales of the road from 36 bands, including X, L7, King Missile, Minutemen and the Germs. Tales of hardship and misery from Orange County rockers Frank Daly of Big Drill Car and Mike (Gabby) Gaborno of Cadillac Tramps are among the road stories included in the collection, which is published by Rockpress, P.O. Box 99090, San Diego, Calif. 92169, (619) 234-9400. . . . Rounder Records has reissued "Lady's Fancy," a 1977 solo album by Fullerton folk-guitar hero Dan Crary.
