Collaborative rock scholarship hosted by Cristy Scoggins and William Gillespie, as a discussion forum to accompany our radio show Rock Geek FM and website rockgeekchic.com. We are rock scholars, writers, and radio show hosts who wish only to share the TRUTH with the internet-enabled world.
Babysitting Fanfare for the Speeding Bullet, Austin and William deliver two hours of unplanned or intentional technical and musical problems, with an emphasis on implausible cover songs, featuring an entire hour of a beloved Julie Andrews song being brutally stripped of all innocence, and most of its melody.
At the end of a lovely Independence Day weekend, Austin and William stand in for Jason Finkelman on Fanfare for the Speeding Bullet, bringing you music from the distant fringes of jazz and the flip side of patriotism.

Austin and William sit in for Jason Finkelman on Fanfare for the Speeding Bullet. William finishes a bottle of chartreuse to numb himself while Austin spins—no, wait, his music is all on the cloud—rains avant-garde jazz and noise and to mix it up a little noise-jazz with Anthony Braxton and Wolf Eyes. With just enough squonk. Right in the middle of the calamity, enjoy the calming sounds of Atmospheres—an homage to Kubrick in anticipation of our soundtrack show the next day, recorded the previous weekend.
