Sorry, been busy


Life, as John Lennon says, is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.

Content to come here this week as we get back to business here at JACOMB 😀


5 Questions With … Scott Terry (Red Wanting Blue)


Here is the latest installment of JACOMB’s Five Questions With featuring Red Wanting Blue frontman Scott Terry.

Scott discusses the new album, the name of the hidden track and how it came to be, his favorite places to play outside of Columbus and more. We had a slight interruption during the interview as one of Columbus’s finest police officers came upstairs to discuss a slight incident involving stolen gear … but no worries, the bad guys were caught by Charlie’s Angel.

Five Questions With … Justin Tranter (SPW)


After a bit of a summer break … it’s time to hit the streets with another edition of Five Questions With …. featuring the charismatic frontman of Semi Precious Weapons Justin Tranter. I met Justin (and his adorable, lovable mom) at a Swig Tooth show in Asbury Park, New Jersey, in the summer of 2006. I remember asking him if he would mind if I photographed their show in Columbus later that summer. He said, “I was made for the camera.” He’s right.

Here is (significantly more than) Five Questions With … Justin Tranter

Check back later for Five Questions With Aaron Tasjan … singer/songwriter and guitarist for Semi Precious Weapons … and a native of New Albany, Ohio.

Fabulous Photography!
