Lefty Williams deemed best kept hidden secret in the music industry.

Lefty Williams is the best kept hidden secret in the music industry. He knows how to play the guitar left-handed. Playing the guitar left-handed is not something many people can do, play, or perform at. Lefty Williams has a truly unique talent in that aspect. (He is famous at Guitar World.) Lefty Williams is the lead singer for the Lefty Williams band. He has been the lead singer in the Lefty Williams band for a number of years now.

Music from Lefty Williams band is available on iTunes. Most of their music is going to be available online via the internet. That is how many artists and bands handle their independent distribution in this day and time.

Marquis Greer's independent record label Purple Elephant Music established.

Marquis Greer started the Purple Elephant Music independent record label out of Dallas, Texas.
The reason Marquis Greer started Purple Elephant Music because he believes there is not enough underground music out there for everyone. Purple Elephant Music is a full time hustle for Marquis Greer. He wants to expand the brand of Purple Elephant Music for his artists and MC's that collaborate and connect with him. He wants to connect with artists and producers. Expanding the brand for the Purple Elephant Music independent record label is Marquis Greer's main focus right now. Marquis Greer is expanding the brand for Purple Elephant Music right now.

What methods of promotion Kevin Anthony is currently using to promote him self as an established independent artist.

It's not as easy to promote yourself for self-promotion as everyone who's a musician or an artist makes it seem. That's just not the reality in self-promotion marketing.

Not only is Kevin Anthony using the newest ways of self-promotion by using the internet as a platform for promotions but he is using the oldest ways of self-promotion by word of mouth and posters. Word of mouth is the oldest form of promotion known to humankind. Word of mouth promotion has been around since almost the beginning of time. Kevin Anthony using the word of mouth promotion method is best way to get his stuff out there. You all can trust me on all this.

Other than that, his flyers can be seen online also! Kevin Anthony does use his promotion skills and marketing skills to the best of his advantage. In the business world self-promotion, professionalism, dress outfits, and marketing are the most important things!

Kevin Anthony has the potential to be a singer-songwriter behind the scenes of the music industry and publishing rights business. Kevin Anthony should hit the books on studying music rights. Kevin Anthony has a lot of potential and we hate to see all that potential go to waste. Other than that, Kevin Anthony is so dope.

Culture surrounding Yiddish theatre long forgotten.

Yiddish language has flourish in the continent of Europe since the 1300s. Yiddish is the cultural instrument of Jewish and Christians alike.  Yiddish was the language of 'Judengaast' (Jewish Ghetto). In other words, Yiddish was the language of the streets. Also the home, the shop, wherever.

Yiddish theatre provided and opened wider horizons for the acting industry! Yiddish theatre had proved to be a successful hit in the United States and Canada during the early 20th century. Most plays in Yiddish theatre were centered around comedy much less than tragedy. The Golem play was one of them for example.

By the 1950s, Yiddish theatre began declining as successors of Jewish Europeans preferred English theatre over Yiddish theatre. Yiddish theatre wouldn't flourish forever. Immigration law was a factor for the demise of Yiddish theatre that was beginning in the 1960s. Yiddish theatre was great while it lasted.

Insight on the politics of Jello Biafra.

Jello Biafra has made some anti-Bush statements along with Fat Mike of NOFX. For those who don't know, Jello Biafra has run for mayor of San Francisco in 1977. Jello Biafra ran as a candidate for the Green Party in 2000, performed with NOFX at the Rock Against George Bush and crashed the Democratic National Convention and Republican Convention more than twice. Jello Biafra had joined the Occupy movement of 2011 and 2012. So Jello Biafra is STILL relevant today. Jello Biafra has made some anti-Obama statements after Barrack Obama let 320 million Americans along with the rest of the world down. Even with all that Change and Hope crap. Because of some of his ridiculous requests he wants to have happen and because he has been compared to Crazy Leftists (Leftivists) and Crazy Centrists, nobody will really vote for him and take He is pro Green Party despite some pro Libertarian Party sentiments made long ago.

News behind the Black Market Records bankruptcy of 2014.

On the date of 11/22/2014, Ced Singleton filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 11 bankruptcy for his Black Market Records business. The case was taken to California Eastern Bankruptcy Court at that time. The motion to dismiss was denied without prejudice by the judge. Trustee Cedric Singleton asked the court to dismiss this bankruptcy case.

California Bankruptcy Court cleared Black Market Records of all debt and legal obligations to all of the titles that were included in the bankruptcy from 2005. Ced Singleton settled with the debtors and the lawyers which closed the bankruptcy in the year of 2015.

Ced Singleton never added William Larcell Charles as a creditor to the Black Market Records bankruptcy because he wasn't named in the publishing. They never signed no agreements or contracts. Ced kept him out of everything. In other words, William Larcell Charles was blackballed by Ced Singleton and Black Market Records. To this day, Ced Singleton still owes William Larcell Charles publishing royalties for which he never rightfully received.

William Larcell Charles blackballed by both Ced Singleton and Black Market Records.

From 1991 to 1997, William Larcell Charles (LA Chill) worked for Ced Singleton as an executive producer at Black Market Records. He worked as both a producer and engineer there during his tenure in the music business. It was due to Ced Singleton’s corrupt business practices that LA Chill did not get a fair handshake by the music business he deserved.

In 1992, LA Chill produced That Sickness track for the X-Raided - Psycho Active album. Not Brotha Lynch Hung as Ced Singleton alleges! William Larcell Charles clearly states a claim that Ced Singleton still owes him mechanical royalties for That Sickness track that appeared on the X-Raided - Psycho Active album. Ced Singleton never paid Willie Charles (LA Chill) mechanical royalties and publishing royalties for the 1992 X-Raided - Psycho Active album either. X-Raided and Ced Singleton wrote half of the songs and not all of them. Ced Singleton took away publishing royalties from LA Chill.

From the timespan of 1994 to 1996, William Larcell Charles (LA Chill) acted as the executive producer along with Ced Singleton for the 1996 X-Raided - Xorcist album. LA Chill’s name is all over the Xorcist album for that very reason. His name (LA Chill) listen on both sides on the inserts.

Ced Singleton released the X-Raided - Xorcist album without the permission of Willie Charles and copyrighted the Xorcist album without no contract. (That is a federal offense!) William Larcell Charles (LA Chill) did not give Ced Singleton permission to release the Xorcist album nor did he give Black Market Records any distribution rights either for retail release of this particular album to be released.

Ced Singleton also “claims” he published Xorcist. The truth is Ced Singleton wrote none of the songs and not all of them. Both X-Raided (Anarae V. Brown) and Ced Singleton cheated Willie Charles out of both mechanical royalties and publishing royalties for the Xorcist album because they wanted the money for themselves. Ced Singleton and X-Raided never paid Willie Charles (LA Chill) mechanical royalties and publishing royalties for the 1996 X-Raided - Xorcist album ever. Despite that, Willie Charles and X-Raided had split the publishing royalties for the 1996 Xorcist album. Both X-Raided and Ced Singleton still owe William Larcell Charles (LA Chill) mechanical royalties and publishing royalties for the 1996 X-Raided - Xorcist album.

William Larcell Charles lawfully owns the full copyright to the X-Raided - Xorcist album as he owns the Xorcist reel to reels to this day for which he clearly maintains. He rightfully owns full copyright to the X-Raided - Xorcist album. X-Raided owns his lyrics regardless of the copyrights involved for this case. They never signed no agreements or contracts for the Xorcist album at the time.


As for the latest updates…

California Bankruptcy Court cleared Black Market Records of all debt and legal obligations to all of the titles that were included in the bankruptcy from 2005. Ced Singleton settled with the debtors and the lawyers which closed in the year of 2015. Although Ced Singleton never added William Larcell Charles as a creditor to the Black Market Records bankruptcy because he wasn't named in the publishing. Ced kept him out of everything. In other words, William Larcell Charles was blackballed. They never signed no agreements or contracts.

To this day, X-Raided and Ced Singleton still owe LA Chill mechanical royalties and publishing royalties for the X-Raided - Xorcist album. He claims he never saw any royalty checks from either party. Publishing rights from BMI mandated LA Chill be paid both mechanical royalties and publishing royalties. Black October (BMI) never paid LA Chill.

William Larcell Charles lawfully owns the full copyright to the X-Raided - Xorcist album as he owns the Xorcist reel to reels to this day for which he clearly maintains. He owns portions of publishing for the Xorcist album in a legal sense.


In conclusion to this news review, that is exactly how William Larcell Charles was blackballed by both Ced Singleton and Black Market Records. LA Chill did not get a fair handshake by the music business he deserved due to Ced Singleton’s corrupt business practices.

John Taylor murder revisited!

Officers responded to a call at about 8:50 PM regarding to a body found an apartment building. John Taylor’s body was found outside an apartment building in the 700 block of Sixth Street in the southern portion of Vallejo, California on the date of 10/20/2015. John Taylor’s body was later discovered to be recovered by Vallejo Police Department later on that day. He was mysteriously murdered by a single gunshot from which he later died from by unknown unnamed assailant. The victim was identified as John Taylor, 35. Detectives ruled out this death as a homicide. That killing was Vallejo’s 17th homicide of 2015.

John Taylor left with somebody he himself and his family did not know. All that is known is that John Taylor left his sister’s home with some unknown individuals and that was the last they heard from him. After that, his sister and family never heard from John Taylor again. This murder had occurred under very strange unique circumstances to where even family members couldn’t find out any details to what led to the murder of John Taylor.  Nobody knows what may have lead John Taylor to get killed execution-style. Details are sketchy. Now John Taylor getting killed was a tragedy. The murder mystery of John Taylor is very unique.

John Taylor also was known as rapper Maniac in the Bay Area and in Sacramento Valley. He has several unreleased songs that have never been heard before by the public and possibly 2 unreleased albums. Maniac was signed to AWOL Records (of C-Bo, Killa Tay, and Marvaless fame among others as well) as he was Freddie T. Smith’s nephew. He was signed to AWOL Records in the 1990s. During his tenure at AWOL Records, he recorded a bunch of tracks with label mates C-Bo, Killa Tay, Pizzo, Lunasicc, Da Misses, GP, Mayhem, Young Joker, and Marvaless along with others. Willie Charles (noted producer for X-Raided - Xorcist among other West Coast rap classics) has released a one track single from Maniac called Outta Bounds (feat. Luni Coleone) this year on his own TrumpTeezee Records (TrumpTz Records) website that can be also purchased on iTunes and symphonicms.


A suspect was found in connection to the murder of John Taylor. The suspect was Johnnie Daniels III, 44, of Fairfield, California. Both Fairfield Police and Vallejo Police say he was involved in the murder of John Taylor as their detectives claim.

Vallejo Police arrested a Fairfield man on the Monday morning of November 14, 2016 for the murder of John Taylor. Fairfield Police had responded to a call about a domestic disturbance that had taken place around 3:30 AM located on the 2500 block of Bickford Circle in Fairfield, California. Fairfield Police called Vallejo Police after determining the owner or occupant was wanted on a no bail warrant for the October 20, 2015 murder of John Taylor.

Daniels was questioned by detectives along with Vallejo Police. He was later then arrested and booked into Solano County Jail for murder, court violation, and the no bail warrant. While booked into Solano County Jail, detectives and police questioned his whereabouts for the murder of John Taylor. However such details involving his arrest have not been released public. He is awaiting trial.

Ted Nugent exposed!!

Ted Nugent is very complex with his political beliefs and such. Ted Nugent is the epitome of controversy, mayhem, insanity, propaganda, and loudness with his conservative politics. Ted thinks conservatism is great the coining the neoconservative term "pro-Ted". Even in the liberal 1960s he was pro-conservative with his politics. The behavior of Ted Nugent is outrageous! (As most news critics claim.) To him, loud is good. Ted Nugent is known to be offensive with his political viewpoints and beliefs. You're an ass if you are offended by this.

He's pro-gun in United States gun law when it comes to viewpoints on firearms ownership. Guns to him are an essential part of life. More guns are better than none is the ideology Ted Nugent lives by. Guns are needed in order to protect the family home. You see, a gun is very useful to a man. Ted is a firm believer of hunters rights.

By the mid 1980s, Ted Nugent had taken on the role of being a committed activist in the US State of Michigan.  In recent years such as 2014, Bill Maher says that Ted Nugent gives conservatism a bad name.

Political corruption of Flint, Michigan.

Flint, Michigan was known as "Vehicle City" at one time because GM had automobile manufacturing facilities and factories within the city limits of Flint. But for some reason in 1987 or so, GM (General Motors) decided to pullout of Michigan for various reasons. GM basically outsourced their jobs to other countries. Local activist, film producer, and historian Michael Moore exposed outsourcing of the automobile industry and political corruption of Flint in 1987 on the Roger and Me movie documentary. This business decision was made by Roger Smith, former CEO.

Ever since GM closed down their automobile manufacturing plants in Flint, Flint has gotten worse year by year. The city of Flint is going through a really rough time since GM pulled out a lot of manufacturing facilities and left a handful of only a few. Ever since GM closed down their automobile manufacturing plants in Flint, the effect on Flint was absolutely devastating!

Flint has gained notoriety for being a major violent crime center. The city of Flint is going through a really rough time with all the violent crime, drugs, and political corruption. Money Magazine had rated Flint one of the worst places to live in America in 1994. There's only 4 police officers to cover every 2 blocks. In fact, there are ONLY 6 officers in the Flint Police Department and now the City of Flint have to use the Michigan State Police to patrol Flint.

Nearly more than half of the city of Flint is on welfare and food stamps. Crime in Flint continues to grow!  Flint has gotten worse year by year. Nearly more than half of the city of Flint is on welfare and food stamps. Money Magazine had rated Flint one of the worst places to live in America in 1987. Dallas News and Forbes had rated Flint one of the worst places to live in America in 2005.


Now as for political corruption and corrupt politicians in Flint…The city leaders did little or nothing to stop it. The city leaders did little or nothing to stop the illegal drug trade during the crack cocaine era. That had occurred in the 1980s. Politicians were in support of draconian laws for even for the most minor offenses that have proven to do more financial damage than any actual good.

School board members closed down many great schools that were needed in the community. This statement is true for both public schools and private schools despite the facts that Flint's public schools were hit the hardest. Financial gains were more important than local political matters to them. The politicians in Flint of course we're being dishonest and corrupt at that.


But the bright side is Flint as a city is rebuilding itself as a college town with educational establishments such as Kettering University, Mott College, Dort College, and University of Michigan - Flint. Not only is Flint rebuilding itself as a college town but they are refurbishing and rebuilding the Downtown area of Flint ever since the year of 2008. The downtown area is looking nice now. Clothing stores had opened up. Clothing stores have been there before.

Another bright side is that basketball is BIG in Flint, Michigan! Famous basketball players such as Glenn Rice, Desmond Farmer, Jermaine Smith, Jeff Grier, Desmond Farmer, Kevin Tolbert, and Lamont Green (LG) were produced in Flint as explained in the movie documentary Flinttown Kids in 2010.

Right now in 2015, the city of Flint is currently rebuilding itself.

Behind the exposure of the Big Lurch murder trial!

The Big Lurch murder trial got national news coverage in the United States from Los Angeles to New York City all the way up to the small fish port of Bangor, Maine from 2002 to 2004. Big Lurch had stabbed Tynisha Ysais with a knife. A chunk of meat had been taken out of her face. On November 7, 2003, Antron Singleton (Big Lurch) was sentenced to life in prison.
I have mixed feelings about Big Lurch. I do however, have sympathy for his career. Big Lurch knew what he was doing when he smoked that PCP. He knew he was going to jail after he murdered Tynisha Ysais in April of 2002. I have no sympathy for his behavior.

For those who don't know, Antron Singleton (Big Lurch) was a rapper from Dallas who was in 1997 a part of Cosmic Slop Shop. But MCA was financially mismanaged. MCA didn't know shit about the South. Let me put it that way.
In 1999, Big Lurch started using PCP after a car accident. It was upsetting me to see Big Lurch on Drugs Made Me Do It on Bio. This was on June 4th, 2013. All that talent go to waste. It was great to see his father, Alfonso Singleton, and childhood friend Dillon Costilla. DDA Drew Josfan spoke as well. Black Market Records and Stress Free Entertainment were involved as well.

As of 2015, Big Lurch is still currently incarcerated. PCP is not a plaything.

Spotify exposed!

Spotify is an application, music streaming service, internet radio station, and a website that artists use nowadays to get their music promoted out there. All commercial and non-major independent artists alike. Spotify is a great promotion tool all across the globe.

It is reported that 5 million users of Spotify pay either $4.99 or $9.99 monthly. That is more than every one of the featured artists earns with exceptions of a select few.  A vast majority of artists only earn $0.05 cents (US dollars and Canadian dollars). While other Internet radio stations like Pandora and iTunes give artists $10,000 average (US and Canadian dollars). But there's a catch! The money doesn't go "directly" to the artists pockets. It goes to the record labels, executive producers, CEOs, promoters, owner(s) of the sound recordings, and producers. The artists will still get paid but just not as much.

Spotify has been known to unfairly compensate artists. Some musicians and artists don't feel that they are being treated fairly by the business of Spotify. Spotify pays to the record labels instead of course obviously. Artists do not receive anything in advance, receive no minimum per stream, receive no advances, and really only get a 50% share of ad revenue promoted by Spotify in public and online. Even their website.

For example, IF Pandora pays around $100,000 over the next 10 months to stream music of Robert Plant, only $43,000 will actually go directly to Robert Plant, himself as the performing artist. Just if Brandy Norwood were to use Spotify to promote her music and to promote her family business out in California.

The CEO, Dianek Ek, of Sweden, his net worth is $307 million (US and Canadian dollars.) Sean Parker gets nearly as much paid income as the CEO. Sean Parker is a member in the board of directors at Spotify. Sean Parker has associations with Napster in some way.

San Diego rapper Big June supposedly caught with contraband in jail cell.

San Diego rapper Big June (Clyde Price) had some contraband in his jail cell recently at FCI Phoenix. His release date got pushed back. His projected release date was 10/27-/2013. Big June gets out on June 1, 2013 and released in to a nearby halfway house at an undisclosed location.

He had been there since 2010 due to a gang injunction list after The Movie album was finished. Big June has been incarcerated more than 3 times. Word the yard where Big June is at. FCI Phoenix officials said he got a write up and his final release date got pushed back to 2014.

According to Big June's attorney Daniel Green:

“According to the statements that the corrections officers filed, he was caught with tobacco and marijuana, conspiracy to smuggle drugs into a correctional facility as well as being caught with a cell phone charger. He was able to get rid of the phone before they searched his cell and only got caught with the charger. He said he will try and appeal the decision, but the violation will not look good at his parole hearing.”

Big June is out of solitary and back in general population. They have dismissed all charges for contraband and he is back on his regularly scheduled release date.

How building code laws effect musicians in Austin, Texas.

Due to recent noise ordinances building code laws being passed by Austin City Hall in the 2010s, it is hard for musicians and artists to perform live in downtown clubs on 6th Street. This hurts local businesses and musicians. Music cannot be played at the noise level louder than 60 dB as local noise ordinance permits. 70 dB on weekends as local noise ordinance permits. Sound ordinances are an issue that local Austin musicians face due to the high rise buildings and noise complaints from tenants living the new high rise condos. These big buildings in downtown Austin are now corporate buildings and condos. This doesn't hurt Austin somehow apparently.

The upsides of being a musician in Austin are gaining recognition, getting the exposure, and of course making money. The downsides of being a musician in Austin are dealing with noise ordinances, complaints from tenants living the new high rise condo buildings, and city council.

What Mixerr Reviews is about.

Mixerr Reviews is an independent news blog from Austin, Texas, US that often strays away from mainstream news and mainstream media. Mixerr Reviews talks about news that the underground scene cares about. In other words, Mixerr Reviews is basically a news blog.

Michael Mixerr started doing his overviews in October 2011. As many media news outlets, sources, and newspapers influenced him to do so. In him doing so, Michael Mixerr matured his writing style for Mixerr Reviews into a more organized well laid out newspaper format.

At first Mixerr Reviews was sort of a mail order only newspaper though as some thought it would be. It was through email only at one point. Mixerr Reviews was only available to those who knew Michael Mixerr on a personal level and the only way you could get it was through him. Meaning that Mixerr Reviews was available in Austin, Texas, US only. But in September 2012 is when Michael Mixerr made Mixerr Reviews available to the whole world through the Internet and just locally in Austin only.

Mixerr Reviews was originally intended to be a music news source blog. But Michael Mixerr wanted Mixerr Reviews to be a indie news source blog. As times changed, so did Mixerr Reviews and all the other reviews changed in formatting to along with time. He has matured overtime. The reviews are useful sources of information to many people around the world. There is no propaganda allowed on Mixerr Reviews.
