My Brightest Diamond at Guestroom Records (OKIE-​X Outtakes & Gallery)

My first encounter with the music of My Brightest Diamond was a track on a RED + HOT com­pi­la­tion.

Tim Easton: Exposition Interview & Gallery

… Then Joe took a trip to Roswell. As I men­tioned in Part 1, Joe rides motor­cy­cles: BMWs, Kawasakis, and more recently, a Harley. He’s also inter­ested in UFOs and the Roswell Incident.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Circle of Confusion (Pt. 1)

My best friend Joe Crumley is an inter­est­ing char­ac­ter. He grew up on a farm in west Texas, served his coun­try in Southeast Asia dur­ing a shoot­ing war, stud­ied at the University of Chicago with Aaron Siskind, founded and taught at the pho­tog­ra­phy pro­gram at Florida’s Daytona State College, rode motor­cy­cles from an early age, turned a job… Read More …
