Oklahoma Lefty: Album Review: Unpaid Fines

Dave Brown over at Oklahoma Lefty did a review of the Unpaid Fines album. Check it out! Oklahoma Lefty: Album Review: Unpaid Fines

Title: Unpaid Fines (Christophe’s Music Blog)
Artist: Christophe (Music Blog, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, ReverbNation)

Unpaid Fines is a limited collection of material recorded by Christophe Murdock with various projects over the years including demos and live tracks. As Christophe explained in our recent interview, the collection was put together to help payoff some traffic fines –
Between now and Feb. 15th I'm taking orders for an ultra limited edition compilation CD to help pay some fines off... so it's called "Unpaid Fines". I might extend the final date because of the weather. I know mail wasn't running for a few days there. This CD will be full length and include demos and rare tracks from various projects I'm in. You can get the info and view the current track listing here: I'm also thinking about adding a couple live tracks including a Too Live Crew cover and possibly a Social Parasite track.
Because much of this collection is demos and live tracks the production is pretty hit or miss, but overall it’s an enjoyable record. Even though the tracks range from rap covers to acoustic outlaw country to death rock/horror punk, one thing that is consistent is the dark content of the lyrics (Christophe’s love of the horror genre greatly comes through in his music). My personal favorite track is the Mockingbird Lane four-track demo “The Last Man on Earth” (not to be confused with The Staggers’ classic by the same name).

If you are a fan of Christophe’s music, then this CD is definitely something to track down (though it might be a little hard to get because it was available for a limited time).

Punk All Forms Review Of Fear The Dead

Beth from Punk All Forms did an awesome review of "Fear The Dead", make sure to check out her site and reviews!!!

christophe-fear the dead/if the sun don't shine 45 

 christophe almost always has an original sound mixing country,punk and a bit of goth here and there.these 2 songs definatley grasp more of his punk side and although the vocals sometimes sound off kilter he always seems to hit his notes well with his music."fear the dead"and"if the sun don't shine"definatley seem to be 2 of my favorite selections from him so far and the artwork on this 45 from front to back are stupendous from the monster in his cowboy hat in the graveyard on the front to the desert photography selection on the back with christophe in the middle of 4 junkyard cars trapped in the ground looking like they are all about to get hit by a huge black tornado.always all i can say is this whole thing for me was an 11! score big fan of christophe here!

 As I'm sure you all know, DAMAGED Hearing is my favorite radio program. The DJ, Louis Fowler, is a fellow Okie and a good friend. Make sure to stop by and check out his blog's. Here's the radio playlist from when I stopped by the KRFC studio in Fort Collins, while out on the road.


Rollins Band-“Liar”
Aerosmith-“Draw the Line”
Motorhead-“Enter Sandman”

"Dang dude, you are definitely kicking out the jams today!" - Casey

Ben Prytherch-“DAMAGED Hearing”
Shooter Jennings-“An Unreleased TV Theme Song”

Ah. That's better. Cool down time. Sadly, in a reference that I didn't think would be dated two weeks later, I use the phrases "WINNER" and "TROLLS". Oh, if I knew then what I knew now...

Luckily, I save face by interviewing one of my favorite singers, Oklahoma outlaw country musician Christophe Murdock, where we talk about being on the road, honesty in music and OKC's old 66 Bowl.

Christophe Murdock-"The Life Of An Outlaw (Live on DAMAGED Hearing)"
Christophe Murdock-"Misery Road (Live on DAMAGED Hearing)"

"Wish I'd have heard of Christophe before right now!" - Mike CadaverLab

Christophe Murdock-"Taken Under (Live on DAMAGED Hearing)"
Christophe Murdock-"Road Rash (Live on DAMAGED Hearing)"

A long, fun interview with a great singer. Check out his new album CROSSROADS here. Makes me wish I was back in OKC.

Christophe Murdock-“Red Dirt”
Imperial Rooster-“Pigfork Jamboree”
Leroy Powell and the Messengers-“Telluride”
Rachel Brooke-“Lonesome for You”

Northern Colorado's own champion against the New World Order, Richard LoCoco calls in to defend his friend Emilio Estevez--the real person who's hurting in this whole Sheen-fiasco. I'm also about to get info about his investigations about Building 8 at Ground Zero, his upcoming teen-comedy DOWN AND OUT IN BOHEMIAN GROVE, and President Soetoro's latest birth controversy, this one which places him in Seattle. INTRIGUE! 

Charley Pride-“The Bottom Line”
Charley Pride-“Kiss An Angel Good Morning”
U2 & Johnny Cash-“The Wanderer”

"You are killing it at Go West." - Max

Freddy Fender-“Vaya Con Dios”
