This is Sinead Lohan. I first heard her at Lilith Fair in 1999. She was on a small stage and I stopped for a few moments. I have absolutely no idea what happened for the next 7-9 minutes. She played "No Mermaid" and "Whatever It Takes." I just stood there transfixed. Then I bought her album on my way home. Then I played it 90 gajillion times. Then I put at least one song on every single mix tape or CD I have made since then. Including the mix tape I made for Ledcat because she had a tape deck in her car.
Here's my little Lilith Fair secret. After my Sinead encounter, I enjoyed the Dixie Chicks, Queen Latifah, and Sheryl Crow. Then, Sarah McLachlan put me to sleep. My friend was horrified that I preferred some Irish singer-songwriter nobody to Sarah. I'm sorry. I'm glad she founded the event and do like some of her music. But, I can't understand her lyrics when she's wailing. And that annoys me. Why does it all have to be so dramatic?
So anyway, the latest I've been able to find on the Internet about Sinead is that she wrapped up her newest album in January 1997. Not sure what that means, but there you have it. I will buy it. Whatever it takes. :-)

Saturday night, I picked up the music issue of Curve. Most of the featured artists were completely new to me, even Ledcat only knew a handful. So off to You Tube ...
Check these two aht ...
Toshi Reagon isn't new to the music scene (Ledcat even had actual cassette tapes!). Here's something really groovy.
This is God-des & She. Self-styled "homo hip-hoppers."
