It’s About Time Ep.14— Lost and Bound



Producers: Charlie James & Steven Cardinal


Steve and Charlie in jail, Anna taken captive by the nefarious Branch, and Margie and Rick traveling through time trying to put all the pieces together. That pretty much describes the beginning of Season 2 of It’s About Time. Will Steve and Charlie do hard time? Is Anna doomed? Will Rick get a kiss from Margie? You’ll just have to listen to find out!

Back to the Fire Ep. 16 w/ Scara Robinson

Host: Kily Payne
Guest: Scara Robinson

In this episode I meet up with Sarah Robinson for some coffee and conversation. Sarah is a confident punk-rocker who always seems to have a good level headed attitude Sarah and I have known one another for a few years now having met through Food not Bombs; which we both recognize as a centering constant or a cornerstone in our routine. We spend a bit of time reflecting on this and how FnB has  affected us through the years and what it means to us. We also talk about other groups and organizations in the area that are doing cool and interesting things. After that we shift gears a little as we start “talkin’ bout our generation” as well as the next. Its another “state of the scene” driven edition!

Mondo Rodeo Ep.3: Utopian Blooz pt. 2

The conclusion of the Them Natives Retrospective; “A nightmare in hell” explores the tedium of post-tour accomplishments and features selections from 2009-present including “Damned River”, “Blues Lawyer”, as well as our newest project “Alabama Bound”. In this section the intention of the band noticeably shifts into an acceptance of cultural forms and even an immersion in local artistic influences. I believe that throughout this compilation many listeners will have a better understanding of the process of artistic development in the southeast region, and the importance of acceptance that comes with it.

Mondo Rodeo Ep.2: Utopian Blooz pt.1


This is part 1 of 2 part series documenting the 10 year span of Them Natives recordings. It contains material from 2004-2008, consisting of our early release under the moniker Holy Spirit, the absurd comedy album “Mumble Trails”, AC Temple experimental jam sessions, our triad of tour releases from the “Tour of Tears”. The point of this compilation is to expose the development of relationships over time through musical exploration. In this chapter it will be evident that this outfit has the ability to transform dramatically depending on the players, influences, and resources. Nothing was predetermined, planned, or envisioned, and in retrospect the compilation of this material describes an arc that contemporary musicians and artists might find resourceful. All in all, this combination of material expresses our journey through adolescent humor and rage to a ritualized resistance of Western Civilization and an embrace of Native American culture and understanding.
