This particular column of Bill’s covers one of my favourite Lake Worth bands, Fire Zuave. This rock trio was previously known as The Guns, and it was under that name that I reviewed their performance at this year’s Sunfest for the May/June edition of the Type M page. A few weeks after their appearance in the popular West Palm Beach festival, this group released their first CD, Sand Fastened, and my review of this CD will appear in the October edition of Type M.
Read Bill’s column here. In a recent conversation, Bill said to a bunch of my friends that this is his de facto blog, since he doesn’t have one on the PB Post website, so feel free to leave any comments for him here.
