It was called “Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds.” Los Angeles duo, Mister Goodnite — made-up of Tyler Parkford and Alex Nicolaou — have also created quite the enchanting jam, […]

The boys analyze the local L.A. music “scene”, they talk John Lennon (if he were fat), and of course they talk about the Reflections’ new full-length record, Limerence — and how it’s not all about “pussy and […]

The tour ventured up-and-down the West Coast in a black van dubbed “Van Morrison.” We endlessly drove from Lobsterfest in San Pedro, to El Corazon in Seattle, […]
