Whiskey Folk Ramblers

10 Questions - Jack Russell by Prewitt Scott-Jackson

Today we track down Jackdaw Russell in the wild for 10 Questions. A high-octane member of Whiskey Folk Ramblers and The Daybreak Hits, superlative artist, lover of fowls and uncommon dervish of the whirling variety, Jack's probably more fun than legally permitted in our region. 

Catch WfR May 4th at Tin Panther, Jackdaw will have his bad ass prints available at East Main Arts Festival in Arlington May 5th, and at the end of the month get out for The Daybreak Hits Record Release party at MASS on May 25.

Buy his art and have the decency when you see him out to give him whiskey. --LB

1) With which creatures do you share your quarters?

3 humans, 2 dogs, downright reckless amounts of cats, all the chickens I can get my hands on (13 & counting), and ducks!!

2) Most likely Pop Culture Alien Overlord?

Hello Kitty. Like you could disobey or say no to Hello Kitty.

3) What can’t you live without?

I’m going to skip all of the boring things that i literally could not live without and say: nerdy sci-fi/ fantasy books.

4) Most Important Morning After Food?

Grease. Preferably Ol’ South or Waffle House grease.

5) Personal Symbol of Freedom?

The gaping black abyss that has replaced all hope and meaning.

6) Build a Bridge or Open a Door?

Can it just be a log over a stream? That one.

7) Super Hero Alter Ego?

Anyone remember Marvel’s Speedball? He bounced around all over the place and people put up with him okay. He tried to help.

8) Who’s your favorite Underdog to Root for?

Democrats. Beto 2018.

9) Given the choice to come back as any animal, which one would you choose?

Jack Russell Terrier. That would blow minds.

10) Most important person with the initials MJ from history and why?  

Michael Jordan. He taught us that humans can fly, if only for a few seconds.

10 Questions - Tyler Rougeux by Prewitt Scott-Jackson

Welcome to FWN's 10 Questions. We are honored to have Tyler Rougeux from stellar roots outfit Whiskey Folk Ramblers and new duo Crooked Bones join us today. 

Catch Tyler and his innumerable hats throughout DFW, and keep your ears tuned for new music from WfR.

1) With which animals do you share your home?

I live with my wife and two boys. Eventually, we will get a dog. I even have a little room for writing or escaping, when necessary. 

2) Most likely Pop Culture Alien Overlord?

Realistically, I would say Donald Trump.

3) What can’t you live without?

I'm still on coffee and cigarettes to an inseparable degree. But if you mean, outside of physical addiction, like what you would grab in a fire: the books on my smallest bookshelf, at least two guitars and my music bag. If I had time I'd grab my hatstand and save all my hats, too.

4) Most Important Morning After Food?

Morning after sex? Morning after drinking? Morning after Christmas Eve? I will say, regardless, bacon and eggs for the win. With coffee. And a homemade smoothie, if at home.

5) Personal Symbol of Freedom?

Tattoos and Hats, I suppose.

6) Build a Bridge or Open a Door?

Opening a door seems like it should be the right answer, and it's definitely the right choice for working smarter instead of harder. But I'm still manually building a bridge, so I guess either works.

7) Super Hero Alter Ego?

The Hulk. It takes a lot to piss me off these days, though. So that's good.

8) Who’s your favorite Underdog to Root for?

Bernie Sanders!

9) Given the choice to come back as any animal, which one would you choose?

Probably a sea turtle. Mostly because I think it's a shame that we only get to live, on average, less than 100 years on earth, and I'm very curious about the ocean. Sea Turtles have answers to questions I wouldn't even think to ask.

10) Most important person with the initials MJ from history and why?

Mick Jagger comes to mind. I'm a huge fan of The Rolling Stones, and I hold him in high regard. Much like a sea turtle.

Here's a great opportunity to check out Fort Worth's newest DIY spot, The B-Side at Green Audio.

The B-Side is the brainchild of Ben Napier (Sally Majestic, Bogus Green, Green Audio Productions).

Just when you think one person couldn't do anything more for the scene, right? Napier does so much for the scene that we are starting to wonder if he's some kind of music cyborg from the future ... he just can't be human!!

Doors open at 8pm, music starts at 9pm. Full event details here.

2. Whiskey Folk Ramblers, Luke McGlathery (CD RELEASE), Michael Lee at Lola's

about the word writer person:

Prewitt Scott-Jackson writes Dad poetry & short fiction when he's not hyping and typing for Fort Worth Noise. His writing can be found in Ghost City Press (New York), Five 2 One Magazine (Los Angeles), Prairie Schooner (University of Nebraska Press) and Sick Lit Magazine (Texas), among others. He prefers short walks on the beach because – and I quote – “It’s really hard to walk on sand.”
