Kickstart A Million Miles

amillionmilesbook:

A Million Miles is a novel written by Amy Fleisher Madden. It is a no-holds-barred coming of age story told with the burgeoning indie/emo music scene of the late ‘90s set as the backdrop. Get in the van and drive around America with Maddy Traeger and her favorite band, Crimson + Clover. This is not a story of arenas with flashing lights and luxurious tour buses; it’s one of dank dive bars and all night drives in a hot-boxed sardine can. This story takes place in a scene that has been chronicled, but never truly exposed. You’ll experience through Maddy’s eyes what it’s really like to tour, and completely surrender your life to the fast moving blacktop that is the road.

The Madden Brothers

So, I went to support my other favourite twins last night at their record release party in Hollywood….. I live in venice so obviously this was a mission…. ok, not really- but in my world -a real commitment. I have been a madden brothers fan since they were Good Charlotte and long before I knew them, thanks to a family friend who got my nyc music snob self to listen past the pop songs on the radio. not to dismiss those songs- there was a reason they were on the radio- they were great pop songs.

Anyway- we ended up dj’ing a party together in sundance 8 or 9 years ago and I noticed a Ben Lee cd in their collection, alongside Rancid and Biggie, and I was instantly sold on these two tattooed, grumpy looking punks. Coz I knew that anyone who could love Ben Lee’s music must be pretty awesome. As it turns out…. they were and they are. 

Over the last few years I have found that the grumpy looks are just a lock on a door- it doesn’t take more than one listen to their music to know they have sweet dorky hearts and if you haven’t ever listened to their music- you should.

their new album is a really beautiful collection of songs- their best, yet. From the time I first heard a demo of Good Gracious Abbey almost two and a half years ago I have been looking forward to hearing what else they would have to offer and I am so happy for them and impressed…. 

i’m writing this blog because I know people post all the time- “check out my homies new blah blah blah blah” but this one I truly mean- Benji and Joel performed an acoustic set last night and I was blown away- such a magical show…. i am so happy for them- and hope they are proud of themselves- because they deserve to be. anyway- that’s all- do yourself a favour and check out the album.
