Interview By Jeffrey Thunders
Michael Slyne has been involved with a number of local bands over the years -- from the loud and heavy fuzz of Snow Orphan and Ferocious Fucking Teeth -- to the Americana/psychedelic rock of Brian & the White Birds -- and currently leads the ever-evolving stylings of Slyne & the Family Stoned, in addition to improvising solo or with friends. Slyne -- armed with a guitar, effect pedals and a 4-track tape machine -- creates a collage of eccentric sounds that blend punk, noise and drone... building an atmospheric dissonance that truly takes you on a journey and surely showcases his musical and artistic ingenuity.

For those of you, (like myself), that love alternative rock -- you're in luck. Ghost Child from Groton are bringing numerous styles together in their songwriting to create a familiar yet new take to the alternative rock sound -- and its solid.
Upon digging around on social media for shows and musicians to help promote on Wailing City, we came across Nick Bosse - a country music singer/songwriter from North Stonington that is seemingly quite busy this fall, (and beyond), with a full schedule of gigs all over New London county.

Even if you haven't been around the New London county music scene for long, chances are you've probably seen a band that drummer extraordinaire, Mike Winslow, plays in. Proven to be one of the busiest and hardest working musicians in the area, Mike can be found behind the drum kit for many local bands such as Fatal Film, Surgery Sessions, The Hempsteadys, The Subliminals and more recently in a newer cover project called 20th Century Kids. If you have been around the scene for awhile, you may recall Mike holding it down in the funk/groove rock band, Incognito Sofa Love in the early 00's. It's pretty clear that Mike is one busy drummer- and I for one, (being a drummer myself), continue to be inspired by his talent, passion, motivation and dedication for music. I can't think of a better musician to start out the Wailing City spotlight interview series with, than the man behind the drums in so many New London county bands: Michael Winslow!

It's no mystery that local New London transplant, Jeffrey Thunders, (currently living locally in New London county but still very much connected with his hometown New Haven), has his finger on the pulse of New England punk & garage rock. From playing shows all over the northeast with his own bands -- The Ratz, The Lost Riots, Jeffrey Thunders & The Scabs etc... to booking killer punk/garage/indie shows all over CT... as well as runs his own short run label Die Hipster and runs the blog CT Garage Punk.
