Fred Cole, Leader of Garage-Rock Band Dead Moon, Dies at 69

Image

Fred Cole, a guitarist and singer who became a cult hero of the Pacific Northwest music scene as the leader of the long-running garage-rock band Dead Moon, died on Thursday at his home in Clackamas, Ore. He was 69.

The cause was cancer, said his wife and bandmate, Toody Cole.

As the grunge gold rush in the 1990s made stars of young bands in and around Seattle like Nirvana and Soundgarden, Mr. Cole and Dead Moon remained beloved local stars despite being decades older than their peers.

Well into his 40s by then, Mr. Cole had been a regular of the garage-rock circuit — playing a rough and raw sound that long predated grunge’s noisy take on punk — since the mid-1960s, when he was a member of the Lollipop Shoppe, which had a minor hit in 1968 with “You Must Be a Witch.”

But with Dead Moon and various other groups over the years, Mr. Cole set a standard for do-it-yourself perseverance. He and his wife released records on their own label, Tombstone, with a dark, handmade aesthetic. He even cut lacquer discs, used to make vinyl records, on an old mono lathe at their home outside Portland; according to legend, it was the same machine used to make the Kingsmen’s “Louie Louie” in 1963.

In a scratchy wail, Mr. Cole led Dead Moon in ragged, macabre-obsessed songs, like “Graveyard” and “Dead Moon Night,” that sounded as though they could have been made at any time in the last 50 years.

I didn't bother posting about Fred because I didn't think anyone here would care.

Nice to see I was wrong.

Ann Wedgeworth who played Lana Shields on "Three's Company" was 83 83? time flew. Her character was always trying to put the make on Jack Tripper with her whispery way of talking and her slinky way of moving. He wouldn't bite though. Comedic sexual tension, I suppose they call it.

Miracles Singer Warren 'Pete' Moore Dead at 78
Image
(left)
Warren "Pete" Moore, an original member of the legendary Motown singing group the Miracles, died Sunday at the age of 78.

Motown founder Berry Gordy confirmed Moore's death in a statement. No cause of death was provided.

"I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Warren 'Pete' Moore, a fine human being and valued member of the Motown family," Gordy said. "Pete was an original member of my very first group, the Miracles. He was a quiet spirit with a wonderful Bass voice behind Smokey Robinson’s soft, distinctive lead vocals and was co-writer on several of the Miracles hits."

A childhood friend of Robinson's while growing up in Detroit, Moore and Robinson formed a singing group while they were both in high school. With Moore as the bass singer, the group was known as the Five Chimes and the Matadors before signing with Gordy's Motown offshoot Tamla in 1959. They changed their name to the Miracles soon after.

Moore served as co-writer on many of the Miracles' singles, including their classic "The Tracks of My Tears" (Number 50 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs List), "Ooo Baby Baby" (Number 266), "My Girl Has Gone" and "Love Machine," as well as hits by Motown artists like Marvin Gaye ("Ain't That Peculiar," "I'll Be Doggone") and the Temptations' ("Since I Lost My Baby") Moore also produced the Miracles' "Here I Go Again" and "Baby Baby Don't Cry."

After Robinson left the Miracles in 1971, Moore remained with the group until their dissolution in 1978. In 2012, Moore was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside the Miracles.

"A gentleman, loving husband, devoted father and loyal friend, we all loved him and will miss him," Gordy added.

Tommy Keene, Power-Pop Singer-Songwriter, Dies at 59
Jem Aswad
6 hrs ago

Singer/Songwriter Tommy Keene performs at City Winery Nashville on July 28, 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Tommy Keene, a veteran singer-songwriter of the new wave and power-pop eras best known for his 1984 alternative-radio hit “Places That Are Gone,” died Wednesday, according to a post on his website.

The post gives no cause of death and simply states: “Tommy Keene 6/30/58 – 11/22/17. Tommy passed unexpectedly and peacefully in his sleep. Thank you to all his friends and family who he loved very much.”

Over the years he collaborated with a number of stylistically similar artists ranging from Guided by Voices’ Robert Pollard — with whom he released an EP as the Keene Brothers, a joke that would be lost on all but certain people of a certain age — and T Bone Burnett (who produced one of his early albums) to the Goo Goo Dolls and Matthew Sweet, with whom he toured just a few weeks ago. He generally remained true to the melodic, chiming, harmony-filled, Byrds-influenced rock that launched his career.

A native of Maryland, Keene released a dozen albums over the course of a career that stretched back to the late 1970s, yet his biggest hit came from the title track of a 1984 EP on the indie Dolphin Records, “Places That Are Gone.” A deal with the major label Geffen Records ensued and he released two albums on the label, “Songs From the Film” in 1986 and “Based on Happy Times” three years later. He signed with indie powerhouse Matador in the mid-1990s and released two albums there as well; the remainder of his catalog was released on smaller indie labels.
