After 116 years without a recall election, Vernon will have two this year

In the first 115 years of its history, the tiny manufacturing town of Vernon never needed a recall election to settle its political grievances. This year, however, amid contentious allegations of corruption, the town will have two. During a special election Tuesday, June 1, voters ousted City Council members Carol Menke and Diana Gonzales, both of whom entered office in 2019. And two other council members are in the recall cross hairs for an election already scheduled for September. Only Mayor L...

Watch Link Wray Play a Downright Dirty Version of “Rumble,” the Only Instrumental to Be Banned on Radio (1974)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFCpUZVyXgg It takes a lot of swagger and confidence to play a couple of bar chords on a guitar, look like the coolest cat doing so, and revolutionize rock music while doing so. That’s Link Wray we’re talking about, and the song is the 1958 instrumental hit “Rumble.” It still sounds fresh today for the same reasons it was controversial at the time. It sounds sleazy, grungy, dirty. This is a song for a pool hall, or a biker bar, and just reeks of cigarettes...
