Hell Freezes Over

Those who have known me since the Reagan Administration understand that Ron Quintana's 80's fanzine Metal Mania, with its combination of humor and Music Geek ranting, was a profound influence on Umlaut's aesthetic and attitude (Thanks Ron!).

In subsequent years, Metal Mania kinda begat Mike Meals' Poser ... which led to Ron and Mike running into each other Reese's Peanut Butter Cup-style in recent years to create N.C. Music Monthly.

Like a rash that's intrusive but pleasant to scratch, N.C. Music Monthly has been the 4" x 5" friend that's been thrust into my hand at shows or crawled into my mailbox... It's been a cool reminder of simpler, cut 'n paste, xeroxed, non-digital times... until now.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Hell has frozen over: N.C. Music Monthly is now online!!

Click HERE to experience the glory and start getting prepared for The Rapture 'cause it's gotta be coming now.

Congratulations to Mike and Ron for convincing the Nevada County Arts Council to let them park in a space on their plot of the Information Superhighway. Now the world can enjoy the wonder that is the Grass Valley Police / Nevada County Sheriff Crime Blotter!
